Your home for discussing all things photography and video! Creative process, techniques, lighting, post-processing, software, sharing photos, and gear...its all good.

Mike Martin and I will be your hosts. Kick yer shoes off, grab a drink and hang a while.

You beat me to it Ken.

Welcome to the new "Big Picture" forum here on Music Player Network!

Why a photo / video forum on MPN? Some of us it seems are wired to do both. Visual arts as well, like music is an outlet that helps us express ourselves. Music and photography/video are inextricably intertwined, whether with iconic photos, album artwork, music video, social media or marketing.

Photography has become a very big part of my life over the last 8 years to the point where my weekend gigs aren't playing music but doing portrait photography for hire and other work including video production. Co-moderator of this subform Ken Lee, is a master of night and landscape photography. If you haven't seen his masterful work check it out at http://www.kenleephotography.com or follow him on Facebook where he has accumulated 10k fans for good reason.

So it Doesn't matter whether you now an f-stop from a bus stop, we're about hauling a tripod over the next hill, getting the lighting on that video just right, unhinged creativity bursts, finessing the images, and, of course, gear. Yeah, come on in. Welcome!

Part of the responsibilities of my gig is video tech. I am trained to use NewTek Tricaster, although I am not certified. I only do technical direction, no production or post production. I enjoy this!
For anyone interested. https://www.newtek.com/tricaster/


A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

Cool. This is starting right up. Mike and I will start creating fun discussion threads, but so much of this is also about you - yes YOU - making this your home. There's all sorts of ways we can pull this since photography and video are beautifully broad topics and as Mike mentioned, inextricably linked with music, walking hand in hand.

Mike Martin's photography can be found here: https://mmartinphotography.com/ For his social media: Facebook photography page is https://www.facebook.com/MMartinImages/ and Instagram https://www.instagram.com/mikemmartin

Since my personal photography page is woefully out of date, these are probably the best ones for my general long exposure portfolio work: https://500px.com/kenleephotography or https://kenleephotography.pixieset.

My social media accounts are here, where I post much more often than the portfolio sites: https://www.facebook.com/kenleephotography and instagram.com/kenleephotography
