So has anyone here ever had one done with him? Is he a decent cutter?

 

Thanks for any and all help,

 

Rambles

Avoid Shane at whatever cost. 


Message me if you need to hear the horror stories and all the details. This guy is a big fucken dope.

My leather soles are black now.

Are my shoes ruined? or should i resole them? Or should i just wear cheap pointy guido shoes to the ivy next time? I'm very sad because everytime i touch the sole of my shoes when im brushing them, all i can think of is the piss that is touching my hands. Please help frown.gif

That is Gold!

 

Another win for Topy!

 

On a serious note, I would not worry too much about it.  To reduce the squirm factor, I would slather some cleaner/reno all over the sole and use a disposable rag to wipe off all excess.  There, good as Gold!

If it is he looks like a slightly less intimidating Henry Rollins. 

 

I always expected FXH to look like some kind of internet enigma - like one of those #sprezzatura guys walking a cat on a leash.

I don't really know what bokeh is, but I like to (as often as I can) try and find ways to frame the photo naturally (such as when I took a photo of a rose in front of a white wall), but hey, it's all good.

I've had a hit of tailoring done by Shane. Fitted a few jackets perfectly for me- bit pricey but super happy with the work.

Can't comment on the bespoke stuff though.

Reminder: Meetup Tuesday 18 June of La Direction générale de Melbourne de la Société des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Élégantes

You are welcome to drop in for 10 mins on the way to the train or stay until 7pm or kick on 'til later.
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

Details below: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
At Sofitel on Tuesday 18 June at Sofitel Lobby/Bar - Collins street - - quiet - plenty of room and bar /coffee pay for yourself.

Inside the centre go up the escalator. I'll try and reserve a set of couches etc right down near the bar and Mens Toilets! (I'll be the one sipping single malts on a bar tab named G Nelson)

The idea is to have a low key, early short meet up so its from say 5pm for 5.30pm to 7pm so we can get home in time for soup and Inspector Rex. Or kick on. It isn't a clothing competition.

Matt from SUIT SHOP has agreed to come along and bring his books and some samples.

By popular request Matt and me will give a short rant on our recent Tokyo visits at 5.30pm. Also by request I will bring along my collection of Japanese mens clothing magazines

PMs and if you would do me a favour and email me at:

fxholden@netspace.net.au

with your mobile number - first name at least and online name. (otherwise I will get terribly confused as to who is who)

In case venue or something changes I will txt or ring people.

 

 

 

 

Damn, I was hoping for a meet-up In the first week of July :'(

Squeezed my hand in there and gave it a bit of a swipe. There was quote a bit of lint and some green fluff.

Now - unfortunately I have to tell you that stuff you think is lint in your belly button is really mould.

Hey Matt, bokeh is just the blurring of the background while keeping the subject in focus.

 

This is an example (not mine):

 

Thank you all for the kind words - the equipment is an enabler but as GF has mentioned, a lot of it has to do with the framing and composition of the shot. People do amazing work with even a phone camera!

 

I'll keep trying to be better!

Thanks Gerry!

post #33102 of 57125
As Gerry mentioned, bokeh is having a subject in focus in the foreground with a blurry background. Bokeh refers to the lack of focus. It's usually achieved by having a shallow depth of field, with tight focus in the foreground. Depending on the camera and on the focus, you can sometimes get quite pleasing dot patterns or small, hexagon-like shapes in the background as part of the bokeh and the patterns can be larger or smaller.

Curiously, bokeh originally comes from the Japanese word "boke", which means "unclear" or "hazy". I didn't realise the connection at first, partly because of the Westernised spelling, but also because, in Japanese, boke is more frequently used as a slang term for mental incapacity, akin to absent-mindedness or foolishness.
