    adding expired-ish vsco film filters to an out of focus image kind of adds to the feel, don’t you think?

  7. Internet Communities

    …are a funny little thing.

    If you told me a few years ago that I’d befriend a bunch of strangers from all over the world with the one shared interest of taking pictures with their iPhone, yes, I would think that was crazy.¬†Fast forward to now, where that is exactly the case… and I still can’t believe how much love and support there is within Instagram’s network.

    One of the folks I’ve had the pleasure of meeting through Instagram is Connor McSheffrey. Connor contracted a severe case of pneumonia during one of his recent adventures, and has been in the ICU for nearly a month at this point. After several surgeries the journey is looking optimistic, but there is still a ways to go.

    So - I’m putting it out there to you Tumblr folks. I hardly know Connor myself, but his situation rests heavily on my heart - the financial and emotional struggles that his family is going through, and his long road to recovery ahead. Would you lift up a prayer for Connor and his family today? And if so moved, consider making a donation to help assist with medical bills?

    (one of Connor’s beautiful IG photos!)

    You can stay updated on Connor’s progress in this journey on his GoFundMe page.

    Thanks for reading, everyone. And have a great day :)

    No photoshop - depends on the lens you use! The more you bring down the aperture (my lens goes down to 2.8) the more focus it will bring to your subject, creating that blurred/bokeh background :)

    I’ve only shot with a Canon 6d and a Nikon D3000 (older model - newer version of this is the 3200). I think the Nikon D3000 was a great starter DSLR, easy to use, and delivered decent results.

    Thanks! :) Man, that reminds me that I have so much more to post from Paris…. all of the ones posted so far were with the 40mm 2.8 pancake, though I did also bring my 16-35mm 2.8 for wider angles as well!
