Weekend at a glance: i need to learn how to use my camera #68

warning: this post contains a hell of a lot of photos.

About a month ago, I went on a whim and purchased a new camera. The quality of photos on my iPhone was just not enough. And, I don’t have enough storage space on my phone. I love the camera but clearly I don’t know how to use it. All weekend, my pictures were coming out super blurry and it was really pissing me off. It wasn’t until last night that my friend brought to my attention that I had a nob thingie at the top to switch settings. I NEVER NOTICED IT BEFORE!!!! Man, I’m so pissed, but whatever.

Friday

I attended a pretty cool ‘Penny Candy’ exhibit at the Loew’s Hotel for artist Hebru Brantley. He is a Chicago native but studied film at Clark Atlanta University. His inspiration for his work comes from the comics of his younger years as well as the works of notable artists such as Jean Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring.

His clientele include some familiar famous folks: Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Russell Simmons, amongst many others. Check out an interview of him here.

"One of the main characters that's recurring is the Fly Boy. Where it came from was the idea of having a hero or a sort of iconic character...of color. The Fly Boy comes from my idea of The Tuskegee Airmen."

Saturday

So lets talk about how my friend Kalina took a picture of me with a WEDGIE and didn’t say anything. HOW RUDE. And how low class of me to post it anyway?? Post lunch.

So basically, I’m in love with PJ Morton. A friend put me on to his music back in 2007 and I’ve been a die-hard fan ever since. I have seen him perform six times (prior to this past show). There’s just something special about this guy. From seeing him perform at Sugarhill to now being signed to Young Money Records and touring as keyboardist with Maroon 5…I just….I’m proud of his progress. He is an excellent musician. I’ll be your groupie, baby.

I don’t have any good pictures because like I said, I apparently didn’t know how to work the settings on my camera so they all came out bad. Thankfully, I took a few shots on my phone and very short clips of video on Vine.

I’m not gonna gush about him anymore. You should’ve been there.

An eventful weekend to say the least. I really didn’t do much. It’s just a lot of pictures, lol. But I had a blast. Happy Monday. Hope your weekend was magical.
