Blues. Or as close to blue as taking photos in the dark will allow...

Wazzup~

I have the same Tom Ford tie and it's been pointed out to me and I now see that it would go better with a pale blue shirt, which I believe you've tried already. Below is an old post of mine. Cheers!

I thought HF had a professional grade camera. Why are his pictures so...cloudy?

Thanks, and I agree. I went white for the challenge (monochrome -- in this case, shades of gray.)

You have to be kidding me; whatever gave you that idea? Certainly not any of my pics, that's for sure! :rotflmao:

 

Cheap point & shoot, many years old, resting on handy a windowsill! Photography doesn't interest me; the only regular photos I take are these, otherwise it's just the usual holiday, evening out, etc, etc kind of snaps!

Don't know what camera he uses - perhaps he doesn't like the effect of a flash or the way it changes colours, and the light is dim.

 

Either way, he certainly has a professional-grade suit.  I've said it before but I love that suit.

:embar:

I feel really dumb. I assumed he had a professional grade camera just because he had the point and shoot thingie (or a remote). 

I have to yell, "Shoot" or "Cheese" and my phone shoots so I don't need them point and shoot thingies.

Let me tell you how technologically behind the times I am: my phone is 7+ years old, so its camera remains beyond terrible. I don't know exactly, but it's probably something like 2 or 3 megapixels! Hence my still owning a separate P&S camera. Which is even older than the phone, by the way!

 

I generally keep things until they break rather than upgrading constantly, so tend to have much older tech than most people. Hell, I only got a new laptop a year or two ago because the old one finally died after about 8 years faithful service. I'll keep the current one until it dies too. Another example: I replaced my 10 year old car last month because it needed an engine stripdown to fix a problem, and it wasn't worth doing that. It doesn't bother me to have outdated stuff as long as it still does what I want it to. When I do get round to getting something new, I tend to buy something nice. It's just that I don't buy it unless what it's replacing is beyond redemption.

 

Having said all that, I think even my old P&S is better than using a modern phone camera for this kind of snap, if only because it can sit somewhere stable. If there is decent lighting, it takes decent photos; I just don't get good light in that room from about late September until about March, and sadly there's nowhere else in the house with a ledge the right kind of distance to take a full-length pic.

I would like to start a trust fund for HF so that he can get a nice professional grade camera because it is an injustice that he is doing to himself with such fine clothes that he wears.

Hey,  I'll take any freebies you're handing out! :laugh:

 

I have a love/hate relationship with the acquisition of things, generally. I like nice things in theory, but I don't find any entertainment value in simply owning them. I need to be able to enjoy the use of them regularly. So while I can see why a nice camera is theoretically a nice thing to have, I don't enjoy photography in itself, so I don't want to buy one. One reason (among many) that I like clothes is that I can get regular enjoyment from them because I can wear them regularly. Each wear amortises the cost, as it provides another quantum of entertainment value to offset against the initial cost. This is the same reason I tend to buy a top of the line car or laptop and then keep them until they break.
