comments and criticism are surely welcome. :thumbsup:
you have a good eye, how long have you been shooting? I would like a little less contrast on the 2nd one but other then that good job 8)
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.
What do you shot with?
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.
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. :?
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
Yep, very nice photos, the last one i think is a closeup of a bunch of bananas, (i may be wrong ) Nikon is right about your eye!
very interesting photographs .. the first one's my favorite, very rustic looking
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:
Oh yeah, i was right, what do i win? I am guessing a big old plate of nothing, but i had to ask
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?
