Your Pictures Thread Photog 05/02/2020 (Sat) 06:02:51 No.3
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.

Right now i'm a complete scrub trying to study photog in my free mental time, which isn't much due to college anxiety but we are trying. Have a sizeable backlog but i want to polish the post-processing skills enough to start fixing all of them, still here's some i took years ago. First one is with a Sony Cybershot DSCW120, second one is a Samsung WB150 and the other two are early edits from a Canon 1300D. I was a deutsch angle junkie but mainly because i wanted to leave out things from the frame, didn't really understand the concept of the technique. I like most genres but landscape, cityscape/architecture and most things with crooked perspective/the Deutsch are my main attractions. Also night time stuff but i don't have technique for it.

I've been out of the photography game for years but am looking to get an enlarger for some old 120 film negatives I have. What should I look for in an enlarger? I'd like one where I can adjust the color balance of the picture to warm up cold-looking photos and that can make big prints but don't remember much about this stuff anymore (if I ever knew it). Any suggestions?

>>72 Hey i think i remember you. These are yours? 5 years ago it seems, welcome in any case. >I'd like one where I can adjust the color balance of the picture to warm up cold-looking photos Last time i saw an enlarger was a decade ago, the only thing i remember that kinda does that are colour filter slide compartment, but honestly i don't remember very well. They are quite big and if you are buying used double check it works for colour film as many cheeky fellas like to use "general use" for some of them due to their lenses but omit they are just B&W. In terms of film stuff (which is quite rare in my town) i've found talking with portrait shop owners (the places you take a picture for official documents) usually have equipment gathering dust, if you show coin or strike a conversation you might get some info or even service for cheap. Wish i could help more but i am honestly a DigiBabby

>>73 Yup, those are mine all right! The second one was from when I was still taking digital pictures and editing the crap out of them. Here are a couple more that I don't think I ever posted. I've been sitting on my thumbs all these years, and it's been bothering me that I've done nothing with my negatives yet. There is a photography place in my town. I think they even work with film, so it might be worth a try to call them up and see if they can help.

>>74 Really like the style, mid-to-late 00's electronica. It has its charm although i would say it even predates those years. I remember your work because i did a backup of everything i liked from the old /p/ board after it went kaput and wanted to make a PDF showcasing it as some kind of time capsule, but never really went for it, perhaps one day. Also i didn't know we could upload a bit more than 20MBs seeing that you uploaded 20.3, those are just as cool. Yeah try moving those film dudes, sometimes if they are old ones they might be enthusiastic but from my part they are always bitter and busy so i just stop after the first small chat.

>>75 >Really like the style, mid-to-late 00's electronica. It has its charm although i would say it even predates those years. I've always leaned toward heavily edited images when it comes to color digital photography, but I ended up finding a tutorial that showed how to use gradients to make images that look like chillwave album covers. From there I just played with things like RGB noise, VHS filters, and color curves. The third picture here is the second oldest color edit I have, and the .tiff file only dates back to 2012. Nostalgic musical aesthetics were a big influence on me both then and now (even if I kind of gave up on photography). >I remember your work because i did a backup of everything i liked from the old /p/ board after it went kaput and wanted to make a PDF showcasing it as some kind of time capsule, but never really went for it, perhaps one day.

It's hard to believe that those film pictures I posted are like five years old already. >Yeah try moving those film dudes, sometimes if they are old ones they might be enthusiastic but from my part they are always bitter and busy so i just stop after the first small chat. You'd think they'd be friendlier seeing as how that kind of stuff is much more niche than it used to be and so their business would be more limited when it comes to film.

>>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.
