this is a camp meeting building shot on film...with a anastigmatic lens from the thirties.
What a freaky image. I don't even know what to make of it - but I really do like it! Crazy, blown out thing.
It's like a picture of a memory, faded and thin, but you can still see what's there. :thumbup:
yeah i know freaky is the best discription for most of my later stuff. Its like a faded old newspaper shot.
okay maybe i cant get the pinhole right today but I can still shoot a paper negative
or the faded newspaper version
another whored up paper negative...
just another paper negative from sundays failed pinhole shoot
Good stuff! I like the lake shots.
I saw something tonight on antique road show. Prints from a late 1800 photographer. They were almost exactly like the ones I have posted here.. In the printing style and the lack of intricate detail. I like them..
It is what I am shooting for and only because I don't have to please anyone else. I really do like that look the blown out high key yellow background print.
I have no idea why but I'm fascinated with that look, probably because the whole era has begun to fascinate me.
They really do have eye appeal. I like a lot of them, especially your lake shots and the cemetery shots you've put up. Those are fabulous subjects for that look. :thumbup:
And no, of course you only have to please yourself.
This one is a real beauty. I love this tint, and the suggestion of the lone fisherman at the bottom. :heart: Don't call this one a failure.
