    This is the outcome of uprating my film speed.

    #4 is awesome!!! I've never seen that sort of thing before... so I'm off to google that guy right now.

    Exactly how much did you push this film????!??! It's so grainy. It's awesome. I push a lot of film and i just love the effect. These look like you've pushed them heaps... like over 4 or 5 stops. I'd love to know.

    Have fun with the fish eye.. just be careful it gets tired very easily.

    i pushed it 4 stops, and overdeveloped for around 3 minutes longer than i should have.

    also the print (of the face) was a 2 X 3 because i couldn't, for the life of me, print onto anything bigger. and thats why it's kind of lacking some detail.

    Yeah, if you look up Mr. Kellner you will find some really cool stuff, it's really easy to do as well. He basically puts me to shame. If you can... find the picture he did of the Eiffel tower with this technique, it's awesome.

    Thanks for the reply!!!

    Avec plaisir!

    I looked him up... and he's very inspiring. I'm going to try it one afternoon I go fishing along a river - i figure that should be pretty interesting.

    2 x 3 inches!?!?!? I think it's great like it is. Grainy = good!!!! and don't let any digital freak tell you any differently. hehehe :)

    I guess I should say welcome to the forum as well,,, for only have 7 posts. Stick around... and show some of your stuff in the alternative techniques section.... i think pushing film comes under that?

    So i'm at school. I'm in high school. and i felt like putting a few more pictures up.

    This first one is my attempt at a polaroid emulsion lift transfer, and i transfered it into B&W with photoshop and stuff like that.

    on this second one, i've had it sitting on the school's harddrive for a while, and please tell me if it's obnoxious because i think so. Some people love it, and some hate it. Tell me what you think.

    Thanks again,

    Oh i also wanted to put this up because i need some help with it.

    This was taken at one of my friend's concerts and the lighting was horrible so i had to use my little pop up flash, and im not good w/ flash settings on it.

    Because of the flash the middle of the picture is super light, and it puts emphasis on my friend nick the bassist. But it blows out his unclothed torso. I tried using the burn tool in photoshop and i could only burn so much before it started looking like he had a skin disease.

    any ideas???

    Awesome photos.

    I agree about the grainy in your pictures, it looks really good.

    How did you do the photo of the fan?

    hey intheviewfinder sorry i didn't respond, but the fan picture was a polaroid 600 manipulation. i just took the shiny clear part off the front and ran it under warm water and rubbed the white junk off of the back for about 20 mins and that's what i got. and then i scanned it back into photoshop to mess w/ the contrast a bit.
