“I’ve had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it’s paparazzi photographers or for film posters.” Keira Knightley
“That was one of the ones where I said, ‘OK, I’m fine doing the topless shot so long as you don’t make them any bigger or retouch.’ Because it does feel important to say it really doesn’t matter what shape you are.” Keira Knightley
“I think women’s bodies are a battleground and photography is partly to blame,” she says. “Our society is so photographic now, it becomes more difficult to see all of those different varieties of shape.” Keira Knightley
I am sure you are wondering why I would do something like this. Simple, I thought it would be fun to try and replicate everything about her photo. Her goal was to do a topless shoot but not allow any manipulating or photoshoping to be done whatsoever. There is nothing wrong with being who you are and being secure with it.
Getting ready to post this image started getting me thinking about how you can’t post woman on Facebook or Instagram topless but it’s perfectly fine for me to go shirtless.
What is the world afraid of? You hear it’s to protect the children, but they are bombarded on the news with things that are far more scaring. A simple internet search will take you to porn or people getting their heads cut off.
So what’s wrong with nudity that is art that is beautiful and natural? If you don’t like it don’t look at it but don’t dictate to others what they can and can not look at. I guess this falls under the FREE the nipple campaign.

Have you ever wondered how you travel the world or ship an Apple Imac for jobs? Well, a company called Tenba has created the Air Case specifically for shipping Imacs or checking it under an airplane.
I have to thank Postman FRO for bringing me this Air Case because it will set you back around $650!!! You may think that’s expensive, it is but the problem it solves for many working pros is well worth the price.
DigiRichie travels a few times a month and instead of renting Imacs on set he simply travels with them. The issue has always been how do you take in on a plane with you and keep it safe. You can’t cary it on because it’s to big but you can certainly check it. Normally I would be worried to check an Imac but this case is built like a tank. In fact you can stack almost 600 pounds on it and it still will be fine.
DigiRichie will have a full on review of this bag on one of his upcoming episodes since he has taken it cross country and back a few times.
This is a PRE Review of the Canon 7d mark II. The “Real World” review is on it’s way and will be to you very very soon.
I just took the camera out for its first spin at a Pete Yorn concert. This was a good show for me to test ISO for stills and video since he wouldn’t be moving to much around the show. If you haven’t given Pete a listen in a while or ever I suggest you dial up the good old spotify or check him out in concert.
The samples images that I am sharing first show ISO 12,800 and 16,000. The 12,800 looks to be pretty solid for a cropped sensor camera. The 16,000 on the other hand is a little mushy but again it’s 16,000 on a cropped sensor it’s totally acceptable.
Shooting the video at 16,000 also left me pretty pleased with the results. It’s not every day you shoot video at such a high iso and come out with very usable footage.
Like I said, this is a pre review and just some quick first thoughts that I wanted to share.
