Dear friend, FEAR is the golden bricks, which hold you underwater– which prevent you from flying to your own creative heaven.
SHOOT, SHOOT, SHOOT Keep making images, keep busting off the roof
Why do we make photos to please our audience and followers, not ourselves?
Dear friend, I’m been contemplating a lot on this concept of ‘universal basic income’ — whether it would be good for humanity, or horrible for humanity.
Interview with ANNETTE KIM on CREATIVE EVERYDAY and MEMENTO MORI ARTWEAR.
Never allow anyone else (including ERIC KIM) force you to shoot photographs against how you like to shoot.
HAPTIC presents MEMENTO MORI ARTWEAR by ANNETTE KIM.
Last full day in Kyoto with our sisters, Annette and Jennifer.
I think selfies are the best pictures you can take. Why?
Dear friend, I want to give you some practical ideas on “buying happiness”—via buying experiences, not gear and stuff.
Dear friend, in my quest to live happier, with less stress, and with more meaning— I think I’ve come across an idea which can help you.
Dear friend, I propose this new school of thought called “NEO STREET PHOTOGRAPHY”— “NEO” meaning “new.”
Dear friend, Super excited to share that HAPTICLABS Kyoto Office has finished the first draft of CREATIVE EVERYDAY, and have sent it off for a test print.
Dear friend, Why do you make photos… to make pretty photos to get a lot of likes on the gram, or to find more personal fulfillment, and meaning in your life?
Dear friend, Never deny your will to photograph.
I have recently been shooting on a phone, and last night, I was so damn excited… shooting night photography with the Google Nexus 6P and HDR+. I felt like a kid again…exploring and experiencing photography for the first time.
What do you do if someone gets pissed off with you taking a picture of them?
As a photographer, you are a picture maker.
I’m the first to admit, I’m the biggest sucker to GAS (gear acquisition syndrome).
Dear friend, it’s been a while! I’m currently writing these words from our AirBnB in Kyoto, ready for the upcoming Kyoto Zen Photo Experience (Sept 9-10).
The hardest thing about being a modern photographer: deciding which photos to keep or ditch.
I’m the ever optimist.
Self-doubt and not believing in yourself… is what holds you back. How can you overcome self-doubt, and begin to believe in yourself?
Due to overwhelming demand for the NYC workshops (both sold out), Cindy and I have decided to add an ENCORE CONQUER YOUR FEARS WORKSHOP (October 14-15, Saturday/Sunday, 2017) to give you the opportunity to take your street photography to the next level.
I am testing the OnePlus 5 with the default camera and the Google Camera with HDR+ and I am blown away by the superiority of HDR+.
