Everyone knows “that” guy or girl who should have stuck with a point and shoot when picking out their camera. From the gear head to the overly enthusiastic “artist,” Youtubers DSLRnoidea have a little fun with the type of people who really weren’t meant to own a dslr.
Nothing is more disheartening to me than waking up on a day of a location shoot to find it is raining outside. What was supposed to be a fun day of shooting photos turns into a day on the couch, browsing the web, and having a movie marathon of the same old DVDs. When Antoine Willaeys woke up to a rainy day though, he didn’t let it stop his photo shoot.
“I’m a 21 year-old self-taught fine art photographer from France. As a child, I early found shelter in my imagination. I started to feel interest for art very quickly, through painting, drawing, writing, sculpting, making objects and costumes… At the age of 18, I started making pictures, but it was not until the age of 20 that I realized how fantastic a medium photography was, allowing me to combine all these passions.
