Have You Met Zee Captain?Have You Met Zee Captain? by techgnotic

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But
I once read on some deviant's profile "Stop saying you want to be a photographer, if you take pictures you are a photographer". If find this extremely shrewd and well-said.|
So if I think about it right now, it is because since my inscription on dA, only a few months ago, I believe I have changed my way of thinking photography.
Let me explain it : since the first time I have come to realize that I love taking pictures, four or five years ago, I only took pictures occasionally, when I saw something a bit interesting.
But now my artworks are amongst the ones of many professional photographers, doing a great work with their $3000 cameras and lenses, often travelling far away to find the one spot that will allow them to take a beautiful picture, and so on...
Of course, I know you don't have to posses some great pieces of equipment to take good pictures. But it helps. I have recently bought one of the cheapest DSLR cameras (yet a very good one, this Rebel T3), and maybe I will start trying to process images a little bit. I don't like thinking "This image is awesome because it was photoshopped", but some slight improvement can be done without remorse, don't you think ?
And remember: about two thirds of the pictures you see here have been taken less than a hundred meters away from my house.
