    Night Life!

    Do you know what's causing the lines in the snow in the second shot? Reflections from the stars maybe? Awesome shot!

    Film is Still Alive

    Lots of people at my university camera club are hybrid shooters, using both film and digital. The appeal to the millennial and younger generations is, I think, the novelty of doing something that can be completely divorced from digital apparatus when they themselves have grown up in a world...

    Anyone build their own Photo Editing PC?

    $2500 would build you a total overkill, kickbutt, make all your friends drool over it computer. I spent ~$800 building my computer about 4.5 years ago, it is geared towards playing video games but runs all the adobe products I use (photoshop, lightroom, premiere, and after effects) like a dream...

    Well, apparently I'm famous (infamous?), or: How not to provide constructive critique

    for senior photos, did the photograher ever write the grad year on the bottom of your feet?

    I graduated high school three years ago. Towards the end of the year we had an assembly featuring a slide show of everyone's senior photos (photoshoot style as well as studio style) and I remember one girl had our graduation date written on her stable boots but that's about as close as I saw to...

    Kalt Mini Red Safelight

    Thank you for for the info, compur. I was working off what the internet was saying about red being safer than amber because it emits light at a spectrum farther away from what my paper was sensitive to. Serves me right for not reading the manual! I'll look into buying one of the safelights...

    Kalt Mini Red Safelight

    I needed a new safelight as my old Delta Junior bulb got smashed in the process of moving house, so I drove 1.5 hrs to the closest camera shop to me and picked up the "Kalt Mini Red Safelight", product #NP11178. It fogged my paper almost instantly, completely unusable :apologetic:. Just to be...

    In-Camera Cyanotype Negatives

    Got some more scanned properly just now. I have bought b&w chemicals and paper. My plan from now on is to make paper negatives in camera and then contact print onto cyanotype paper. I also bought transparency film so if I want to make larger 8x10 prints instead of 4x5 I can.

    Adventure shots with you in them!

    I was doing research on gullies like this one last semester at my university's arboretum. [/url] [/url] Cool thread!

    I see what you mean now that I'm looking on the computer, perhaps finding a way to prevent light spilling onto the background would help. I do like the idea of the outside petals appearing softer/glowy though.
