Hello there buddies and welcome to /p/, the board dedicated to all things related to the visual time machine. I want to mention i'm going to try my best to be as off-hands as i can be regarding discussion to exert the max comfiness possible, but we are still bound to follow our hosts' rules plus some comments of mine, which are: 1. Follow the global rules, which are based on the Romani 2012 Criminal Code. They can be found at our Home page but in short they state that we should: a) Avoid posting or requesting information that might harm something or someone, these include social security and/or financial card numbers, registration plates, an asshole's physical direction, comprehensive government structures' layouts, etc. b) Avoid posting sexually suggestive images of individuals from the genus Homo that were under 18 years old, or might appear under said age without ID confirmation, when the images were taken. b.i) In this segment images of "juveniles simulating sexual behavior in a credible manner" are also included, meaning realistic 3D renders are prohibited. Such are the drac laws. - Because of what constitutes "suggestive" is a subjective matter, the "Bas" Dost test can be performed by a judge (in this case the BO or A.C's administration). - It contains 6 questions or factors that constitute if the poster is guilty or not, the number of positives to give such judgement is where the controversy begins but to keep it simply i'm going to state that: If it is suspicious that's a spoiler, if it turns me or a G-Vol on that's a delete, if it is highly arousing to any man then that's a ban - The difference between Grigori Galitsin and Garry Gross is the legal team, you might back that up under U.S. law but this site is based on gypsy land, so we reiterate an urgent appeal to avoid these images. c) You must be an adult to use this site :^) 2. Spoiler gore or NSFW content because Canadians and Australians might bug and harass our host's administration if otherwise. We are currently classified as NSFW but the eternal leaf still doesn't care. 3. Do not spam gore/porn/nude oeuvre made to incit a normal sexual reaction due to the aforementioned reason. I will consider "spam" the action of posting more than 5 times something tertiary to the topic at hand or from the reply chain. If the topic IS nudes or something very related (the oeuvre of a specific photographer specialized in that, for example) then this rule does not apply, but Rule 2 still does. 4. Do not post invite links to Discord groups. Just Don't.

Message too long. Click here to view full text.

Let's look into some of the famous, and not so famous, photographers' works to get some inspiration, ideas or entertainment by looking at some of their pictures in small dumps. Also serves as a way to force myself into enjoying this hobby without a camera. Anything goes as long as you like it enough to expose it, in my case i will post some of them once in a while in a constant format.

Some of the fabled Egypt ruins images before that place was massively plundered by the locals, although tomb raiders had already done much damage way, way before these images were taken.

So, after seeing a quick look (relevant to the future topic at hand) of what those frenchies did with their techniques, lenses and funding, we are going to jump to the back-then Great Kingdom and check an interesting subject sadly not given enough credit but highly relevant too for the enduring legacy it provoked. Then we will get another quick photog example from said stylistic repercussion movement, he's picked not so much due to his name but to give an above-average, but still usual, subject that represented the immediate context of the guy we want to fully see. Although it's worth saying that the next figure here was as influential, if not even a bit more, in the long run but due to circumstances there's not that much to see; still i cannot stress the importance enough. Also i broke a rule there with the Bissons, 35 photos instead of 12s or 24s, but it's to showcase their work on a single sitting instead of returning to them. Our actual dump will be 100+ due to it being a special subject so we are only starting, and in the future i will probably just post whatever seems necessary to showcase a photographer's work, but it will be done in 5s or 10s... just because of my OCD there, s-sorry. >>90 I was supposed to do a long dump but wanted to do it on that specific day, so i just let it rest while refining the writing down a bit, i left many details out it's embarrassing so i'm just writing it again. >i'm updating my board archive to catch these. wat

Your Pictures Thread Photog 05/02/2020 (Sat) 06:02:51 No.3 [Reply] [Last]
Post pictures that you've taken to share them with other anons. Talk about the things you like to take pics of and what camera you use. I'll start. I use a Lumix FZ48, and I like to take pictures of nature, and I want to get into more Urbex pictures.

>>76 It's kind of a digital/scanline pictorial, honestly it's pretty nice. Seeing my notepads from the amateur backup, it says here under "Lo-Fi Man" you used "an old Powershot and did a ton of post-processing in GIMP", didn't know it was that useful, i just used GIMP for drawing and conversions. >hard to believe that those pictures are five years old already Film photography is ruthless in terms of time, even when it's as rewarding when pulled out. A friend of mine went for it and ended up becoming a videographer more quickly than a photographer (and that was years later), he's still a good shot but film resources and processes take their toll on anybody. It does justifies certain aesthetics popular these days with the lomography scene but it's demanding, i would fall back into a small thrift store point n shooter while trying to get them negatives enlarged, your stuff is pleasant to view and maybe a cheap compact package might get you warmed up, although it also says here film was more closer/better for the motive you wanted.

>>77 > you used "an old Powershot and did a ton of post-processing in GIMP", didn't know it was that useful, i just used GIMP for drawing and conversions. Yeah, I used GIMP for absolutely everything. Photoshop might be what the pros use, but I only ever used that in school. I've always stuck with GIMP just because I'm used to using it and it's free. >It does justifies certain aesthetics popular these days with the lomography scene but it's demanding, i would fall back into a small thrift store point n shooter while trying to get them negatives enlarged, your stuff is pleasant to view and maybe a cheap compact package might get you warmed up, although it also says here film was more closer/better for the motive you wanted. Film might be a lot more of a hassle, but it can also get imperfect images right out of the camera that I'm (mostly) satisfied with. With digital it was more of a matter of taking pictures and editing them until I liked them. A lot of times I'd get things like blown-out skies shooting digitally, too. While the Holga images I shot were blurry (maybe a bit more than I'd like), they also didn't have that problem. There was even a short period when I tried to compromise and shoot on a Nikon camera with a Holga lens, but then I just realized I should stop going halfway with the things I want to do and just try shooting on film. Also, judging from his first record, Ulrich Schnauss has done some great stuff. I only discovered him a few years ago. He might sound a bit clinical in production compared to something like Boards of Canada, but his compositions were nice and really capture that early 2000s feeling for me. Here are a few second-tier images I shot. I'm actually pretty happy with the way the second one turned out after editing, even if it's more of a textural piece than anything.

>>78 >>79 If you liked Schnauss i recommend Manual's efforts, they are mostly guitar-based but does use cold drum machines once in a while along with echoing synths. Dude has an excellent Psychedelic Rock outfit on the side too. Thanks for the pictures, they are nice references and eye candy. Right now i'm watching some compositional stuff from mainstream jewtubers, then i will likely jump on a book or two then i will organize my backlog of pictures to start editing, and i will definitely try my luck with your mojo in some of my pictures. Would've used Holga lenses (very especially that colored turret one) but for some reason they are expensive in my country, oh well.

I'll have to give one of Manual's albums a listen. >Thanks for the pictures, they are nice references and eye candy.

Would've used Holga lenses (very especially that colored turret one) but for some reason they are expensive in my country, oh well. Good luck. Once you get a grasp of the basic tricks, it can become really easy as long as the base image is good enough (in regard to composition, I personally am no pro and just rely on the rule of thirds and not much more). The editing process for me is the most enjoyable part of photography. It also helps to do several different edits of an image and compare which one you prefer (pic related was an alternate I had and spiced up a bit just now). What software are you using? If you're going to try GIMP, then I can give you a few pointers.

For the betterment of our users we shall proclaim a small library of resources like PDFs and videos. This is the place to share personal ways, known names, discovered channels, own documents and particular files that can enhance our abilities in this hobby. But due to concerns regarding the hosting size made clear to me by our admin we should upload them externally via media share sites or, in the case of videos, refer to a site or quick way to get them. Pretty simple activity but i do recommend using trusted filehosts, obscuring names, using passwords and other assorted privacy measures to avoid bots or crawlers from taking content down. I mean we are not sharing anything illegal and we sure are not pirating anything either but it's best to be reserved :^) From my part i just finished organizing and uploading a bunch of stuff you guys might find helpful. I will make a post for each theme and probably recommend one or two documents from that batch, i haven't read much other than the stuff i bought but i will try to make the best bet from what i've gathered in the many previews i did, otherwise you can check the list and see what you fancy as there's probably the high chance i might've missed a golden standard or just very good document. I still have many files left in reserve and will post the topic names if anyone is curious or needs some, honestly those didn't get up because i got tired and rushed to gather essentials.

Hope some of these are from your benefit, wanted to give a chunky beginning to this venture but i did left many genres behind like Studio and Portraiture due to thinking many of us would not go into it until much later. Still if someone is interested in that or some other topic i might have just throw a comment, also i want to give an apology because i found some of these documents have some weird errors into them making text go invisible or non-existent, sorry for letting those go and if someone finds one by chance i'll see what i can do to upload another version. Also here's a full list of documents uploaded in this start if someone is mad enough to give them all a go. https://zerobin.net/?48761805f1cda412#qiUfKdWgafS68EH4+XtNcDmZGtuyxuzL4b48RV5xA8Q=

Oh snap it's been 2 weeks now? Time flies when playing video games So here's an old but gold video i had, it's our boy B-Pete with a compilation of short beginner's tips he did long time ago for home release and i think some short excerpts made it into travel channels and such. Like we previously mentioned, Pete is a bit cutthroat and absolutist in terms of what you should and should not do which is silly to tell you the truth, photography "rules" are actually guidelines or general advises so people don't go crazy or wonder aimlessly for a while. Bryan uses the direct rule format lessons to herd the newcomers, which he probably saw as middle-aged bored dentists with money to blow, as the target audience and decided to make videos in his easy-going but focused persona telling you never to take a picture with the horizon in the middle, even when in his vast curriculum he has done so multiple times with good results. Again, if you see his recommendations as general friendly guidelines instead of stone rules then viewing/reading is much more relaxed and didactic. You can also see he sports the late 80's/90's japanese technique of street photography, dress as wacky as you feel comfortable with and always be attentive and smiling in a friendly non-wacko way, all with a tinge of typical anglo tourist. He actually is more reserved in classes but that's his persona, no doubt you saw him at least once if you viewed or surfed early 00's TV channels around home improvement or traveling. Here's the link, an hour long, 400MB. ZeroBin seems to be working now for all posts so there's that. https://zerobin.net/?d18022b36a01f7a3#p7HFKB0dK3GBG7vwxJ1+j1H1ebHBMypXKNSUBi/UVk8=

I got a thing coming and won't be actively around until next week, but i'll keep tabs everyday if something weird happens, as it has happened in other parts of the webring. I'm also uploading some stuff for an upcoming thread so hold onto your butts, it's going to get ND1000 dense. >>27 Hey there, no prob and also sorry for the late reply. Thanks for those, also can i modify them a little? i mean framing and color toning, nothing extreme.

In a little spare time i had i clowned myself into some photos for our sampler, i had way too much fun with the 4th pic >>27 and tried to think of something with the 5th but still escapes me. Is it okay or do we pick others? Also added some stuff into the CSS and got some books organized and uploaded, so i guess it's time for a crucial thread.
>>28 >also can i modify them a little? i mean framing and color toning, nothing extreme. Of course you can modify them a bit! I'm happy to help in any way I can, sorry to get back to you so late, been busy for the past week, but things should be calmed down by now. >>33 I like the new theme a lot, thanks for contributing it! >>34 Nice pictures man, I really like the lighting.

What's your guys' favorite film stock?
I'm kind of out of the loop nowadays (I've stopped doing photography until a point when I can potentially build my own darkroom and make some prints), but looking at my photography stuff I have a box of Ektar 100 sitting out that's just about empty. I've tried several other types of film but I don't remember whether or not I developed any real preference.

As the title suggest, we're building up teams and rosters for the Infinity Cup 2020! We'd like it if you could join us. https://anon.cafe/p/
>>29 Thank you kindly for the invitation It happens that, even when we have a "legacy" name, we are probably mostly users who don't have extensive experience in the IB photography lingo or anything related, aka we are new at this and we are just building our own identity since the start of this month. These 30 posts you see are our first. I'm aware we need a crest, a starting XI with 6 subs and 2 sets of kits, sadly if we submit those it would be rushed and the names wouldn't really be rooted in our own culture. Basically if we go for it we would be a cheap plastic club like ManCity but without the money, so we will have to sadly decline this time. We are probably going to participate next year when are settled so be prepared, we will be the ominous dark horse unless you refball us.
>>30 > Basically if we go for it we would be a cheap plastic club like ManCity but without the money What an aptly made similitude. Aight, I hope to see you flourish as a board all the same.
