I just got my hands on my new Lensbaby Composer and it is looking great. The lensbaby is a tilt-shift lens that allows me to adjust the focus to different parts of the lens to give my photos a warped look. I feel that with this lens I will be able to take amazing photos that a very different and I can also use this in movies that I shoot with out going through a hassle in the edit room. I hope that in a while I will be able to take some senior photos and be able to use this lens to make amazing shots for the students.

This is the last part of my Detroit post. A few years back me and my friend went down to Detroit and he knew of a very sweet place to visit. So like champs we went to Detroit at 2 A.M. and visited the Heidelberg Project. located at The focus of the Heidelberg Project (HP) is rooted in the need to improve the under-resourced and horribly blighted Detroit community where the project was founded. If you live in the Detroit area i feel you need to check it out =] hope these pics convince you.
If you look close at Santa's bag you see a message from a Jewish kid. I thought it was pretty neat.

Watch your focal lengths when taking pics. These can make or break an image. For each subject you have to find a good length to compliment the subjects features.
This is 18mm
This is 24
These are crap, the smaller the focal length number the longer it makes a face. These pics make me look like i have a long nose that almost comes out of your screen.
This is getting closer but i still think its not good for my face. This is in 35mm
This is around 50 mm and if it wasn't for it being shaky i would think it would be the best of the pics showing how to do a good portrait for me.
This last one is between 85-135mm i didn't get the length. As you go higher up the numbers the flatter the object looks. The last pic still give a good feel of the shape.

My buddy and I went to Detroit a second time so I could bring my camera to take pics. On our way down we stopped at a cell phone store and what do you know, the counter had bullet proof glass. That is one way of knowing your in the D. My friend was talking to the cashier and I was walking around looking at all the phones when i heard in the back a few guys talking about gun. This would be fine and all, I like to talk about guns too who doesn't, but then i heard a click and then I knew they were playing with real guns. I couldn't contain a smirk on my face. Oh and also the D likes to have people park in the right lanes... THESE ARE NOT PARKING SPOTS Its great.

The other day me and my buddy went to Detroit to visit some Salvation Armys. He looked at books and I looked through old records, I got two sweet records for $.50.
After that we headed down Mack Ave. and we started playing a game called "Count all the," no don't get ahead of me you racist fuck, "churches." It was crazy that within four miles we counted around 20-25 churches, I never knew Detroit had so many.
We hit up highway 75 and I saw this amazing graffiti on the side of the building, My camera was at home =[. We decided to go back down to Detroit a second time to take pictures. I went back today and took some pics of it, here they are =].
More to come tomorrow on my silly day in Detroit. Much more silly stories to come.
