Title: Photography, yay! (Warning: Very, VERY dial-up unfriendly)
Post by: Stifled Dreams on 29 Sep 2005, 18:26
The Comics & Drawings forum doesn't get as much love as it deserves. It is my favorite section.

So, here is a thread to talk about photography! I'm pretty sure there hasn't been one. I'm taking first-year photography at my school, although I've taken it a few times before. I'm so happy that I didn't mess up when I was developing my film, I think it's one of the hardest parts of photography! (I kept putting it on and off the reel in that little black bag thing because I thought I had done it wrong.)

So yes, feel free to post pictures you've taken, digital or not. This thread is supposed to be more about photography as an art form than it is about photography being used for memories.

Also, here is a picture that I developed last summer. It was taken using a cheap Holga camera, and it is somewhat out of focus. Oh well.
EDIT: Taken out to save bandwidth for more pictures later! If you are very curious and would like to see it anyways, just PM me. It isn't really that great, though, haha.

Pretty cool... Though cutting someone off right at the feet is a compositional no-no.

Don't mean to get super-defensive, but let me explain. I was using a lomographic camera (lomography.com if you are curious). It had 3 zoom settings: close-up, portrait, and building. It also had two aperture settings: sunny or cloudy. The viewfinder is no type of viewfinder at all; you look through it and you see what you'd see if you weren't looking through it, even if you are zoomed it. We also taped our cameras up because they were prone to light-leaks. Basically, you just shoot without knowing what you'll get.


Lomography is way cool, though. (I'm using a real camera these days for my photo course.)

EDIT: (Although I admit that I didn't know that it was bad composition. I can see why, though; doesn't look that great. I'm going to thank you now for potentially helping me not get marked down in photo. I figure that since I'm probably taking this course for the next four years, I probably would have made that mistake at some point.)

Thank you. If anyone else has something they want to share, I'd love seeing your work!



I made a contact sheet today, and the negatives that I developed look pretty crappy - I think I should have had the shutter speed higher (they're pretty blurry). Oh well, it's always good practice.

Way awesome, saturnine. I love the first color one - it is often hard to take good color pictures, I've found. At least for me, things that would look awesome in black and white look pretty bland in color (feel free to disagree, of course). I'd like to see any more of your pictures that you feel like showing!

Freelance:
I love your shots, but I've got a few crits.

#1 - in  the second shot, i would crop that right side where the other board is sticking out. it's very distracting, compositionally, and i think the peice would benefit more from a more vertically inclined framing.

#2 - i don't know how it would look, but i'd probably crop out the cars in the background of the piano peice. they're also quite distracting (as cars tend to be, although they fit well in your first photo), but i wonder if the picture might suffer too much without the rest of that space. just a thought.

Greg:
What'd you use to take that shot? It's gorgeous!

Personally, id have waited untill the pug got out of the way in that shot, and waited till a trabant came along. MUCH more suitable for the setting.

Indeed, it is.  I had lots of opportunities to walk around at absurd hours of the morning in the four months I spent there last year.  I'd really like to see those dusk pictures.

To saturnine:  I appreciate your critiques, though I do disagree with them.

If I cropped out the other surfboard, the surfer would be left alone in the picture with a rather bland background of sand and sky.  Since the surfer would be the only point of interest, the viewer's eye would be uncomfortably confined to that corner of the picture.  The other surfboard, while a little distracting, provides a second anchor point so that the viewer can more freely explore the rest of the picture.  Otherwise, I'd have to crop everything but the surfer (which would still be a good photo, just not as compositionally as interesting as putting the subject on the edge of the frame).

I'm amazed this photo came out so well since these surfers were behind me.  I didn't have time to line up a shot or even turn around as they ran by, so I just pointed my camera over my shoulder and hoped for the best.  I love the freedom digital cameras provide as I don't have to worry about wasting money on high-risk shots.

As for my piano photo, I don't see a way of cropping out the cars without also cropping out the tree and lampost, unless your talking about airbrushing them out.  I think they lend the scene an extra amount of weirdness (beyond the already weird tree and lamp) since it sets the scene of a late night outdoor piano recital.

Funny story behind this picture: the piece being played is Erik Satie's Vexations, a creepy, highly-discordant piece that is only two bars in length, but played slowly and repeated 840 times, in all taking about 24 hours to perform.  It was performed by three UCLA piano students (and any piano players who happened to walk by) who switched off every hour.  I watched about five hours before walking home to sleep for two hours before getting up for class again.


Now to return the favor:

saturnine:  I really like your photos.  It's evident you know when to use soft and sharp focus (especially in contrasting the woman at the window and Ceasar's Palace (I've been kicking myself for not taking my camera on my last trip to Vegas a few weeks ago)).  The lighting problem that DustyLens refers to is that the girl's arms and the palm fronds to her right are overexposed.  Your first picture is just fun (let me guess, she hates candid photos of her.  Most of my friends don't like me when I have a camera since I prefer candids to poses).

GregC:  Although that is a good picture of the observatory, I'm much more partial to your photo of the blues guitarist (call it a music bias).  I like that it's grainy and scratchy like an old record.

~~~

Heh, I've only been using a camera for little more than a year and here I am writing at length as if I know what I'm talking about.

Thanks! Just an old Ricoh SLR camera and Kodak Tri-X Pan (http://www.adorama.com/KKTX24I.html) B&W film. I developed the film and pic myself.

Thanks! Again the Tri-X film. It lets you push it to the extreme. The dude was flat out awesome. It was hard to concentrate on taking the picture.

My photos from the most recent roll of negatives have actually turned out better than I thought they would. Also, I've learned a lot about developing the the last few weeks. I have realized, however, that I have a very long ways to go, though. I've removed my first picture to save bandwidth. That way, I can scan in some newer photos next week to show you guys. I've been reading your critiques and you all seem like a dedicated group of photographers! It is refreshing to see others' work.

Freelance, I think the tree and lantern in the back of the piano photo give it an interesting, almost eerie quality, although since they are only in the background and take a while to notice. So I agree that although the cars are distracting, it would be best not to crop that one.

I do have a question for all of you, though; where do you develop? I develop in school, as I've said. Does anyone here own equipment? And, if so, was it worth buying it?

I'm merely curious, and I figure that this would be a good place to have discussions about equipment and the process, as well as actual photographs.

I bought my digital point-and-shoot (a Fujifilm FinePix A340) a few weeks before I left for Hungary in August of 2004.  I edit my photos using GIMP and have them developed by Shutterfly.  I like Shutterfly since they offer to develop photos without automatic color correction.  This way, I get prints that look like what I see on my monitor when I finish my own post-processing.  Plus, it's much cheaper than printing them on my own.

I think a better method for saving bandwidth would be to use thumbnails or links to where the pictures are hosted.  I'll edit my post.

Digital cameras do have both pros and cons; I'm still a big fan of printing in the dark room, because it is really pretty fun. I figure I could get a cheap enlarger etc with ebay, because thanks to digital cameras, a lot of people don't want theirs. My dad has a digital, and we use Shutterfly, too - they send nice prints.

Saturnine: what an awesome place to take pictures. It looks like it was a pretty fun shoot, eh?

Hey Saturnine, your last expedition reminds me of another guy who specializes in photographing abandoned buildings: Kendall Anderson (http://www.invisiblethreads.com/potd/index.php).

Look into his galleries (http://www.invisiblethreads.com/potd/collections/galleries.php) for other good stuff, especially the Toronto Don Valley Brickworks (http://www.invisiblethreads.com/potd/collections/2004_brickworks/group_main.php?id=2004-brickworks-20040627_065).

Unfortunately, I don't have any of my own work to contribute as most of it has been crap lately.

Thank you for saving this thread! I have nothing to post because I just learned my teacher doesn't give us back our projects until the end of the year, and all of my prints that didn't turn out like crap were handed in.

Also, could anyone provide me with tips for shooting on a rainy day? I really need to go outside to take these pictures, but I'm afraid that they will turn out dark and awful because it is supposed to be rainy until Thursday. Yes, I am a very amateur photographer, I know, but that is why I'm asking for advice and taking a course!

Stifled Dreams: Use fast glass. If it's actually noticably dark feel free to under-expose a bit. Not only will you get to use faster shutter speeds, but it also looks more real (sometimes). If you're shooting black and white use fast film and/or push process. Ilford HP5 Plus at 800 ISO has really nice looking grain.

saturnine1979: I swear I've had the same idea. I just don't have anyone to act/model. Or ideas for story. Or setting. Or much else for that matter.

Also, digital:

Sythe, you should check on your camera to see if you can get the date in the bottom right to turn off (unless you like it like that). I like the pictures, but it is distracting.

And woah, Leonidas, what are those animals in the first one called? They look pretty badass! I really like the colors in the last one, it is a calm scene.

Sorry that I've been abusing this thread, I'm going to make an enormous post at the end of the school year when I get the photos I've turned in back. I'll post a really silly one in a bit, when I scan it.

Hey... I'm a complete newbie to photography, so my stuff's probably not going to be very good. Still, I'll never get better without criticism, right?

These are my favorites so far. I took them in Italy this spring, so sadly I can't go retake them to fix anything but I'm trying to learn from their flaws.

This one was taken using a pinhole camera that i made out of a Quaker Oats container.  Put a very small hole in a box along with a piece of photographic paper and expose it for about thirty seconds.  The tube shape of the container gave it the warped look:

I developed this one using a technique called solarization which is basically pulling the picture out of the developing chemicals before its finished, rinsing it with water, re-exposing it under an enlarger, then completing its run through the chemicals:

Stifled Dreams: Thanks.

SearchingforThree: I like the shoe picture, it's very warm. Also, that pinhole is great, I hope you kept that camera. I love the look of pinhole images (says the dude who's currently got over a pound of glass in front of his camera).

Yeah, pinhole cameras for the win! I seriously think the most fun part is constructing them, though. I have not made one in a tube before, only in a shoebox.

i was looking at a jigsaw through a magnifying glass earlier (don't ask why)
and i realised it was all colour halftones, and that they'd used this to enlarge the image

so i did it to leonidas' desert picture and it's now my desktop


(if you want to know how, rescale the picture to 5000xwhatever in photoshop, go to filter>pixelate>colour halftone, set the max radius to 4 pixels, then resize back down to whatever resolution you want, it has to be the same size as your screen, because halftones don't scale very well at all)


edit: got it small enough to upload without losing too much quality

(http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/8369/dubai27wx.th.jpg) (http://img526.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dubai27wx.jpg)

it looks a bit washed out, i'll see if i can fix that

Well, I wont claim to be a good at taking photographs or anything, but I love taking them, and trying to make things come out nicely. At the moment I use (when I actually have the oppurtunity, which means when im on holiday) a old Leica mini which I have inherited from my grandfather :) Its a real simple thing, but I find it makes great pictures, I think its a keeper... Altough I would like another camera for the "bug-pictures". Odonata ftw!

Anyway, I've just uploaded some of my pictures I had on my computer. They  were made in Scotland, around Fort William about 2 years ago when we went there with a bunch of classmates :)

Snazzy photos.



I'd actually really like to get into photography, but I don't know shit about cameras. I'm pretty sure I want a digital. As cool as developing photos myself would be, I don't have the space or anyting for developing lab things. But yeah, any reccomendations of brands, whatever? I'm working in a $150-300 range, so.

Arrghhh... so much to post... so little time.

I will post tons of stuff.

<- former Combat Camera photog for USAF.

Until I can get some indepth stuff, some tips:

1. When in doubt, rule of thirds.
2. Rule of thirds can be broken but should never be defaulted to
3. Blow the background out by opening up the aperture to put the attention on your subject (unless you need everything in focus).  Most AF cameras have a depth-of-view preview button

Past:
Nikon F3HP
(Why I love this camera: I was out on the flightline in Washington State about 3 o'clock in the morning during the winter with strong winds and temp at about -30F.  The motor drive died.  The camera did not.  The pictures came out great.)

Nikon n8008 with Kodak DCS200
(One of the first digital setups.  I hated digital (despite carrying two bodies on my person at all times).  You know what, I still hate digital.  Let me know when digital hits 30 megapixels, lock-up mirrors and multiple exposures.)

Bronica SQ-Ai
(Medium Format for the win.  Medium Format Slides FTW.)

Current:
Nikon N80
(Oh baby I need a flash and a shiny new Nikon F6.)

I'm currently in my first semester of photo class (but have already pretty much decided to minor in photography).  I've got a Nikon F80 which is quickly becoming my best friend.  

this one was actually the very first print i ever developed in the dark room (after the contact sheet for the roll of film, if you count that...)

Geez, that is lightyears beyond my first print. I really like your stuff, reva! Especially the second link with the ice, that is a pretty unusual picture. The last one looks like it might've been a good one to capture in color! Every once in a while a black-and-white photo comes along and I say, "damn, I wish that was in color."

I'm crossing my fingers that I haven't lost the negatives for those last three in all the moves of the past year.

More coming.  Most likely without the watermarks because they're a pain in the ass to add.

The first was taken with a Nikon D70, the second with a Nikon 8008, and the last two with a Nikon N70.

I've moved this to the arts & crafts forum because it doesn't really fit in the comics & drawing forum now.

I didn't actually title them in the post.  The Seal was just called "Grey Harbor Seal" taken at S. Monomoy Island, MA, in 1999.  First print I ever sold was one of that, also the first prize I ever won.

The rowing one I gave the title "Fog of War" with a slightly tongue in cheek sense of humor to it. That was taken in the fall of 2003 on a launch on the Mohawk river at a scrimage between Union College and RPI.

Easily the favorite of all I've taken. I don't have a darkroom (move around on co-op university work terms all the time), so when I got this back and looked at it, I was like, how did this even happen??? Really slow exposure, different coloured street lights, and the top right sky is cloudy while the left is clear.

About a month ago I was hired to do some event photography.  Im happy to say, it paid off my Mamiya.

edit:
Mamiya 645, my favorite lens is the 80mm f1.9-22, I shoot mostly fuji 220 and 120 film. ASA 800.  In medium format the grainyness is counteracted by the size of the negative.

for faster shootign I carry an ElanII, but I'll never ever buy another Canon again. Special needs my ass.

Here are a couple of mine that I like the best.

These are some of my sister's shots. Our camera is crap, and she's only fourteen, so I think they're pretty good. I'm the person in the first one.

All with a digital camera.

ALSO. Our friend broke our camera and it's SUPER hard to focus now. So if anyone can recommend a good one, that'd be nice. Digital or not.

Wow, some of these pictures... I'm just amazed. And now I wish I had a professional digicam (I lost my Panasonic Lumix at anime convention *cry*, it took some great pictures the few weeks I owned it, even though it's just point and shoot).

These were taken by me on my trip to California (Del Mar, San Francisco, etc).

Heh, good ol' San Francisco. That's a nice picture of the Bridge you took there. It's amazing how low those clouds form- and geez, I remember how extremely COLD it was on the ferry tour around the bay. It brings back memories.

Mm, a Canon Rebel! Very nice. I myself don't have any experience shooting with professional cameras, so I can't give you any tips, except to follow simple rules of photography- here's just an example website, there are plenty http://trem.ca/learning.html. And yes, a replacement lens would be more helpful in the future, but the stock lens should be fine until you get a better feel for how the camera works.

I'm of course assuming that the camera is new!

PS: I used to frequent http://www.photo.net/ during high school when I was interested in photography. They have some real helpful articles and such!

This is a weird type mural thing on the side of the District Attorney's office in Pittsfield, MA.

It's 5 long strands of some type of cloth or something literally hanging on the side of the building. Pittsfield's where the first recorded mention of baseball in the United States was..so they've been on a huge baseball related art kick lately.

As for the tech details, I took it this afternoon with my RAZR, which claims to have a 1 megapixel camera. Nifty!

I spent my semester-long photo course without taking anything I was really proud of, until today. Our assignment was to make a panorama picture of somewhere in our school and I just took my liberties with the dark room, turned on and open up all of the enlargers.

These are some of my favorites.

I walked out onto the lake this afternoon and spent some time taking pictures.  I was basically just shooting a lot of one scene at different settings so I could merge them to HDR photographs.  These are basically the same scene, the difference is how I converted the photographs down to an 8 bit from a 32 bit image.  The first uses histogram equalizing, the second does something with gamma and exposure:

[img width= height=]http://photography.dpscarnecchia.com/albums/mt-tom-hdr/mount_tom_HDR1.jpg[/img]

[img width= height=]http://photography.dpscarnecchia.com/albums/mt-tom-hdr/mount_tom_HDR2.jpg[/img]

When I was done, I started messing around with the gamma and exposure settings in the down conversion from 32 bit to 8 bit images.

[img width= height=]http://photography.dpscarnecchia.com/albums/mt-tom-hdr/mount_tom_HDR_experimental.jpg[/img]

[img width= height=]http://photography.dpscarnecchia.com/albums/mt-tom-hdr/mount_tom_HDR_experimental2.jpg[/img]

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, and basically it is a photograph that covers several stops more than a normal photograph, in one image.  It's accomplished by taking multiple photographs (30 in this case) and merging them together, allowing you to capture detail in both the darkest and the brightest areas without washing them out or being full of heavy shadows.

I understand the same effect is had through preexposure of film.  I have never gotten it to work though....

I took this picture recently.  I like how rusty the movement is.  I discovered shooting in the dark made it easier to not burn the highlights and still have a dynamic depth of field.

I don't get too serious about it. All I have is a $200 digital and no training, but I do my best.

I still don't know which of these two I prefer. The green light is a cool effect.
I definitely like the last one better of these two.

I've always wanted to learn how to develop pictures. (Totally off-topic, I know, but I read your first post and was all like "Hey, cool, developing photos!")
It seems like a very cool process, but lord knows I'd probably mess up my pictures the first hundred times. :'D

I agree. Film is wicked expensive.  DIY gives you the ability to really control the qualities of the print, but the cost of equipment, chemicals, paper, and film is staggering.  They'll pry my film cameras from my cold dead hands, but I really like the 20D.

here's some of my favs that i've taken, most of them from in and around my school (excuse the weird texture on some of them, my scanner isn't the best, and they do look a little large...maybe i'll get around to optimizing them :p):

(http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c23/searchingforthree/eva.jpg)

(http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c23/searchingforthree/ernshoes.jpg)

(http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c23/searchingforthree/alexcontrast.jpg)

This one was taken using a pinhole camera that i made out of a Quaker Oats container.  Put a very small hole in a box along with a piece of photographic paper and expose it for about thirty seconds.  The tube shape of the container gave it the warped look:

(http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c23/searchingforthree/truck.jpg)

I developed this one using a technique called solarization which is basically pulling the picture out of the developing chemicals before its finished, rinsing it with water, re-exposing it under an enlarger, then completing its run through the chemicals:

(http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c23/searchingforthree/solorizedsuv.jpg)

~Rob


i love these, especially the pinhole one. i never thought of making a pinhole camera out of an oatmeal can, i will have to try that.
i found these little kits online where you can assemble your own pinhole camera, and they look like little SLRs. they're cute.

the solarization turned out really neat too.

i love this picture a great deal. the only crit i can come up with for it is a tighter crop, but i think that's probably just my own personal preference... and i don't really feel as if i'm of any authority to be doling out photography criticism anyway. it's a wonderful shot, and it really captures the moment.

Wow, some seriously amazing photos in this thread. Rock on, you guys!

The photos of mine that are online are a little scattered, but I'll just link instead of gumming up the page with a bunch of images. The older stuff (the entirety of the photography in my DeviantArt) was taken with my mom's crappy Canon PowerShot A400, and more recently my dad bought a Fujifilm Finepix S700 (both digital). I think everything else is taken with that. There are a few other good ones that I think are only on a backup DVD, so maybe I'll get those uploaded at some point, maybe laziness will overcome me. :-P I'm very much an amateur, no classes or anything, my first love being music, so feel free to critique as much as you want!

Ok, sorry, world, but I know nothing about photography.  I have never taken a single course in my life, and if my pictures are painful to look at because of this, mea culpa, I admit it.
That doesn't mean I don't want to share them.  God, I love fooling around with a camera.

My heart is filled with glee that this thread is here. Photography is something I've been into since I got into High School, and I'm a second year college kid now.

First, let me say that being in a dark room is the single most relaxing and rewarding thing I have ever done. It's so amazing. I miss it far too much. I need to work on getting a dark room set up for myself.

Second, as I scanned through the pictures in this thread...I got really self-conscious! Ha. Seriously, I just lately started admiting I was somewhat not crappy, but now I see that I need a LOT of work. You all have such awesome pictures. I can't take it. But, I figure I should contribute at least something. These are probably the three best non-sunset-nature shots I have...Please be gentle.

I just noticed some of my neighbours giving me odd pitying looks and talking about me as I photographed some flowers in my garden.  Is everyone else here ridiculed for finding / trying to find beauty in the world around them?

Part of me thinks they may be right to mock me and that it is a futile way to spend my time, part of me believes that I may be happier if I were to look at the bigger picture instead of focussing on the minutae.

Mostly I think they're all cunts.

Is it really a different matter? I'm curious as to what you think. If I show you two photographs, and one is clearly superior but has been modified in photoshop, is it not as good as the film photograph?

Frankly, I'm rather offended that people jump to the conclusion that most photography has been altered or manipulated digitally.

While I would still like your photos if they were photoshopped to look like that, I agree with Anyways - it's more awesome to do it the "real" way.  There's nothing that really separates the two, but I guess part of art is the effort?  I'm not really sure.

I think you're definitely gonna find photography harder and therefore I think it's more of an interesting medium than photoshop (or any digital media), this doesn't mean you can't use a digital camera, just that photography is more interesting as an art form.
This would be an entirely computer generated image I chopped, not really any challenge (i did this after about a month with photoshop on my comp).
(http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee98/AndaleTheGreat/HL2Final.jpg)
Then there's ones like this that are real life made fun, this isn't art, just fun.
(http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee98/AndaleTheGreat/wizard-brian.jpg)
This I think falls into an interesting category, I don't think it's art, but it's still neat. I took a picture of a roommate in that outfit in front of a box with a light in it, then I biuld a cave almost from scratch.

My god, SWM.

You have my fucking camera. And a lens I would fuck just about anyone for.

Of course, my old Pentax body is shot, now, and I had to buy a new plastic replacement. Only upshot is that I still have my real lenses, and they work well, and the body replacement is a lot quieter. The foam on the mirror on my old one was worn out, making the camera awfully loud.

Also, in keeping with the whole "real film photography" theme here (I don't think I've posted these before. If I have, my apologies):


Pinhole.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v249/dramajuana/Random/Pin.jpg)

Why having a loud camera sucks. I had to wait for those fuckers to come back every time I shot a picture. There were more than six, but I cropped and enlarged in the dark room, and have since lost the film. I want to shoot myself. Not with a camera.

i got all those extra lenses/converters for free because my photography teacher in highschool was getting fired and he was like "hey all this stuff belongs to the school. take what you can carry." i also got a really nice bag to hold it all and my friend zack got an old enlarger out of the deal too which was pretty badass.

That's awesome. I want an enlarger. I almost bought a full set of photo equipment (two enlargers, including a color one, tons of chems, a wash set up, a light table, the works) for $150 out of the Penny Saver. I had no where to put it though. *sighs*

Oh, and all my stuff came from my dad. I have an awesome zoom lens and a wide angle and a fisheye (and a standard, of course) from him, too. His old girlfriend before my mom bought it all for him back in the seventies.

Off work at five, eh? *looks around* Where are you located? My fiance gets home at six.

Thank you. Hummers liked to run into our windows, so we would go out and scoop them up while they recovered. They're awesome little birds.

I'm sort of jealous of all of these pictures. I think it's time for me to start practicing again.

great photos everyone! i love this thread.

@wineman
i'd recommend putting some sort of frame or border around those. probably black...maybe white...i've noticed it makes color pictures pop out alot more.

P.S. I like your comic <_< >_>

Hey, thanks, Toba! Those were all scanned from prints, actually, so they're not as sharp as they ought to be. I took them with my ex-girlfriend's digital camera, which she kept in the breakup, so the memory card with the original files is long lost to me.  :oops: They're still some of the best photos I've ever taken, though.

Re: my comic... thanks! I just posted a new one this evening.

Guys, I am retarded.  I thought that all four of his pictures were one picture.   I thought there was water and reflection involved.

I know what that 'low light and my camera has too slow an exposure for this' effect is. :p

woonie, that flower is making me nervous. i don't know why but it's extremely creepy for some reason. like it's plotting something.
anyway, here's a few portraits. portraits are not my favorite thing; i've never been much good at them. here's a few i actually kind of like.

The one from colorado was such a fluke shot. I just happened to be looking that way and I see this older couple standing there holding hands so I quick break out my camera, slide the lens to 200mm(largest I have on the film SLR) and place the shot, as soon as I clicked they kissed, I was so ecstatic about getting the shot.

Yay. I love most of these.

No I don't even own a camera (unless you count whats in my cell). I do however run a photolab.

Between dealing with customers, couriers and staff I spend the day printing film and digital photos. I wish we had more of this calibre at my work. We do of course have our loyal proffessional customers, and it's a pleasure to work with their film, especially if we can enhance it for them (Despite common belief, film is still very hands on and requires a competent understanding of colour and density management).

Those of you who have a talent and a passion, please continue. I assure you there's a shortage of good photographers in the world.

Yay for the photography thread.  I just wanted to say wow to all of the previous posters.  I am not sure how many of you still frequent this thread, but I wanted to let you all know that I enjoyed looking through your work. 

Most of my photos have been taken with an assortment of old cameras.  Right now I am using an Argoflex seventy-five.  So all of them are prints that I need to scan.  I will do so eventually and share.  I am scheduling some time for myself to go around Boston this weekend to take some photographs with my digital camera, I will also share some of those. 

I have a quick question.  I have never really used digital cameras.  My grandfather was a photographer, had a darkroom in his home, and I have always enjoyed working with film so it has never been an issue.  Plus I like framing a shot and then discovering how it turned out in the process of developing it.  I do understand the benefits of having a digital camera, and I am starting to make room in my little collection of cameras for a new addition.  What I would like to know is if any of you have any suggestions as far as cameras go.  Which type of camera do you prefer?  What should I look for when buying a digital camera?  Really just anything that you can think of that may be helpful.  Thanks!

Zoom.  You may think 3x is good enough, but it isn't.  You want at least 5x.

The work here is amazing. I really like some of these photos.

I'll post just a few of my own. The two Polaroids are from an SX70. I don't have a scanner, so I took a picture of them with a digital camera - so there are reflections, etc.

That's all I can think of right now. Sorry.

Thanks.  :)  Any help at all is appreciated.  I don't think I was very clear in my former post anyway.  What I am looking for is suggestions on specific models, etc. that people use and possibly what you all would consider to be the best.  I only have about 700-900 dollars to spend on a camera, so I would like to get the best that I possibly can get for the money that I have scraped together.  I am doing some research of my own, but I figure that hearing testimonials is second best to getting to try the camera out before purchasing.  :)

These are some of my older pic-tars. i haven't updated my deviant art since like may. These first few are digital and the rest are 35mm. Last semester i got a job as a photographer for my college's news paper so i have a bunch more to upload. I'll post the better ones when i get a chance. I apologize to anyone on dial up, some of these are kinda large. Yesterday I got the paper to let me start posting multimedia slideshows on our webpage.

ooo toba, I love the eclipse photos! I have never been able to find out how to take pictures of the moon. I think I need a better camera.

So just to warn you folks I have some rather...unorthodox photos coming up soon.
My housemate is embarking on his dream of becoming a taxidermist, I am capturing his first steps into this. He got some frozen mice from the pet store(the kind you feed to lizards/snakes) and all the other necessary hoodads you need for preserving deadified critters.
This is gonna be a fun one!

I sadly have no personal photographs to add at this exact moment and time, and believe me I would love to even add one of my photographs (granted they are a fraction of the quality as some of those wonderful pictures).

The pictures that won me over are the ones featuring that mental hospita,l back on the first page. I am trying to hunt out some derelict or abandoned buildings to get some Album/ Band photographs sorted, and that building would have been perfect. (heck I may even ask a few favours!)

Other pictures that won me, are the Monotones, they look fantastic but thats just my own view, I do appreciate when they revert to black and white, there is something relaxing and soothing about a colourless frame, I can't put my finger on it exactly but it relaxes me, maybe because the pictures are done so well and it just pauses life, immortalising it in that frame, providing a glimpse into the past, while they are looking into the future...

Photography is such a wonderful skill to have.

We went to the studio to do a photoshoot for class yesterday, had a lot of good times. There isn't anything fancy about these photos, we just did the assignment crieria, which was lighting and flash and x-sync stuff.

Some hints and tips for the photo thread:

1) Turn the timestamp feature off before taking photos, unless it really adds to the photo.

2) Try to avoid having people's scalps popping up right in the front of landscape photos.

3) Try to make posts that other people can decipher.

I like to take photos! I've never taken any classes or anything, though. I just usually take my mom's camera [ Canon Rebel XTi - love that thing ] and go take some pictures.
My favorite thing ever to take a picture of: my cat. Srsly. My mom keeps telling me she's going to delete the pictures I take of him before I can upload them to the computer.
But I usually get to the computer before she can do that. =D!

Anyway, here's a picture I took of him today, that I think came out well:

thanks much guys!
@ Sam - Well technically I live in the southwest :) (los angeles) but I recently took a road / camping trip to utah which is where some of those came from. The lamp & beam bottle photo came about because of the extreme sketchiness of that motel room - It was like something out of a Kubrick movie. So I broke out my tripod, dug out a camping cup and the bottle of beam, and viola photo. I need to update the version online though, I fixed the cropping and took out the sliver of pillow on the right side when I printed 16x20s. I don't know why on earth I didnt fix that the first time around. Bugs the hell out of me.

@ matteaton - heh. That's really funny you say that. I was kind of in a rush to get out of there when making that exposure - there was an extremely drunk redneck and his dogs somewhere (I couldn't tell where at the time, it was pitch black) who was screaming at the top of his lungs that all of America's problems were because of the !#[email protected][email protected]!#%@ Mexicans and #@%[email protected][email protected]!$%@ Indians, and they should all be sent back to where they belong q%@!#%[email protected]!#~!~~!!!!! and throwing bottles and smashing glass. His dogs were kind of going nuts too, and while I am neither Mexican nor Indian, I didn't really want to meet the dude or his dogs in person to debate where exactly they were all supposed to go "back" to...
     After seeing the result of these pictures I'm pretty sure that the white van/truck thing in the center of the photo down by the water was his car. Anyways, I guess that just means that a picture lies :)

@cheeky

Those are sweet! The texture of the 2nd and 3rd ones are awesome. I don't have a macro lens  and should probably pick one up at some point. I've messed around with using close-up filters and they produce a TON of distortion when you stack them:

Which definately gives you a "look" I suppose, but it's not one I'm too crazy about. I should get a macro and do it the correct way at some point.

Very neat! I think night shots are awesome to take because, depending on where you are, it's usually very peaceful.
