    i guess it's been about 2 years now. i didn't start getting into photography at all until i transferred to the school i'm at now (2 years ago) and decided on photography as my minor. it has since become my major instead. :)

    anyway, i'm not surprised you said that about the second pic. i turned that in for an assignment in my very first photo course and the one complaint my professor had was that it was "too contrasty." you're both right. it is. :wink:

    well, all those were taken with my nikon n60. i'm almost ashamed to admit that i still don't really know all that much about cameras. i feel like a complete moron trying to talk to people about that most of the time. :oops:

    i've got a couple of different polaroid cameras and a slide printer as well, and i've been working on becoming more familiar with those so i can play around with emulsion lifts/transfers and sx70 manipulation. alternative processing totally interests me. i've got the basics down but my main problem is that i have yet to get really good exposures to begin with.

    here's one of the sx70 manipulations i did. it's not great, but it's a start i guess.

    i'd show you a couple of emulsion lifts too, but they suck big time. :?

    hi carlita,

    nice, nice pics. i like them all - is the last one the cactus?

    nice effects on the last one, its hard for fathom someone actually doing that in darkroom w/o photoshop. I am completely clueless about camera and darkroom stuffl, my first SLR camera was my canon d10 digital so I never had to bother learning the 'hard stuff' from the dark room.

    look for forward to seeing more posts from you! G'luck with with your courses :)

    cheers,
    mark

    the third one is the cactus. i guess it's not what people would commonly expect when they hear "cactus" but i promise that's what it is. :) havoc was right... the last one's a close up of some bananas.

    and thanks for the kind words you guys. :goodvibe:

    Soooo... you're messing around with the Polaroid while it's developing?

    How does one do that? :?

    Like 3 & 4 the most, 3 is frame able IMO

    The SX70 thing - Does this effect only work with some Polaroid films?
    Do you rub the print with q-tip or something like that while it's developing?
