What are your favorite things to photograph?

by on Oct.26, 2011, under Plinky

Cats, Big Cats – Tigers, Cheetahs, Snow Leopards, Leopards, Lions, and all the other wild cats that are out there would be some of my favourite things, I do want to do an african safari one day, and get some wild lions, leopards & cheetahs… and if we ever won the lottery, one of the holidays would be to see wild snow leopards (almost impossible, but hey, we’d have money!) but anyone who’s reading this will know about me & cats, just because of the main photography blog being as full as it is with cats

Bands too (and solo artists) i really enjoy doing them too, it’s very similar to photographing animals, you get them in your sights and wait for something interesting to happen

now also what a lot of people don’t know is i’d love to try doing people, just straight portraits. but it’s very hard to find models. Plus i don’t have all the right lighting really, but natural light can work just as well if you do it right.

When did you first start using a computer regularly?

by on Oct.19, 2011, under Plinky

Well i remember in about 1992 correcting my computing teacher on a mistake he made in a basic program, so i knew basic really well by then. So i’m guessing my got my very first 8-bit computer age about 11, and when i was about 13-14 my brother had just done his ND and started his HND at college and my uncle dropped off a PC for him to do some work on, and around about that age too, a friends dad worked for a major computer company so had a few computers at the house (this is mid-90’s) and i remember in school for the last 2 years we had PC’s – which is where i got friendly with the IT Tech, which got me friendly with a lot of the staff at college…

Why do we still say “bless you” when someone sneezes?

by on Oct.12, 2011, under Plinky

It’s tradition – and seeing as we live in a “christian” society, it’s considered the norm, I’m an atheist, and i still say it, i think people will think your rude if you don’t I read a book recently by Penn Jilette from Penn & Teller – and he’s an atheist, and isn’t bringing his kids up religious so amongst other things brought them up to say “How Funny” when someone sneezes. I can’t think of anything better to say, someone should start a facebook group to get everyone using this

Write an alternate ending to a movie.

by on Oct.05, 2011, under Plinky

This was harder than i thought, i went through my film collection and i either wanted to re-write the film completely (Fantastic 4, needs at least 30 mins cutting from the 1st act… I don’t want to spend an hour watching a super hero movie to see super powers) or i really like how they end, the one that came to mind was Se7en – which is more of a joke one, ages back after a party, me & a freind nipped out to get McDonalds for everyone, and ontop of a car infront was a Shrek head on an ariel, which made us re-write the final scene of Se7en, when Brad Pitt opens the box and shreks head is in there and he falls to his knees shouting “DONKEY!
