It's instant film, like fp100C - image is taken, chemistry happens as you pull the shot through rollers, dyes transfer the negative to paper to get a positive. Obviously you can't do peel apart like regular instant, so chemistry is spread between rolls of paper and negative. Explained better here:
It's $75 an exposure, IIRC.
Bopie do you have any of your 120 roll that you could post? I'd like to see your results.
Not happy with em. It was more of a test roll anyway. Posted that crop of this awhile ago,
but other than that nothing I want to post. Awkward self portraits and random crap around the house. Along with my trip I told you about (moved to monday) I also have two shoots planned for the fourth. Hopefully I'll ramp up going out and shooting as spring rolls around.
Cool, i liked that one.
I hope you have a good time on your trip and get some good photos.
also your last sentence i read like this;
Hopefully I'll ramp up going out and shooting as spring rolls around.
I'll ramp up going out and shooting as spring rolls around.
shooting as spring rolls around.
as spring rolls around.
I really wanna start making time lapses with my D7000.
But I doubt it'd be healthy in the long term.
Been using film a lot more after getting over the initial novelty of having digital.
Using it for mostly candid stuff, quite enjoying it actually.
so a month or so back my friend's dad had a wedding in which I was initially invited to as the photographer for 'a good amount of pay'. Unfortunately no one would stay in contact and I didn't even know what day it was on, let alone WHERE until two days before, but the extended family is so high key that they decided, at that last minute point, to tell me to go and get fitted for a tux from this one place in town, that's like professional fancy tuxes for thousands of dollars. I didn't have that money on hand and they still didn't elude to how much they were even going to give me (knowing they only knew me as "vinny's friend with a camera" it probably wasn't much), and they opted to just say fuck it and ask vinny just borrow a 'professional camera' and shoot for himself.
so, I lent him a camera, and during the wedding he found out several things. One, They hired a 'professional' who had a handful of equipment-
Two, half of the family was carrying around DSLRs, and three, they wanted my friend to be tending to guests and such instead of shooting so they handed my camera off to a girl (20-ish old) who claimed to be a photographer.
I just got word yesterday that nobody's given the family ANY pictures and they can't get a hold of their pro apparently, and the dad wants a whole ton of shit tomorrow. I also found out that my friend never took the pictures off the camera, meaning there's an untouched wedding batch sitting on a memory card somewhere around my office, and today I'm moving a bunch of stuff around already so nothing's where it should be
finally found the right card, got the wedding pictures onto my archive (only 175), and now I have to edit everything
the white balance is solid yellow on everything, all of the pictures are taken at terrible time/iso settings, and somehow the girl managed to turn off autofocus so half of the pictures are blobs
ripping my hair out
That's awful, sorry man. That's one of the reasons wedding photography scares me, it's the most important day of some people's lives and it's easy to mess up. Those white balances are awful, if you need help send some pictures my way, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org I'm good at white balance with jpgs
my camera arrived on wednesday and i've been spending the past few days messing about and learning the basics, photography is surprisingly complex but its really interesting
i was wondering if there's tripods for getting a steady shot of the ground/ceiling with a level camera?
i'm using the camera a lot for collecting textures for game projects but in order to get photos of horizontal surfaces like the floor i basically just hold the camera out from my body and hope i get a good shot. it'd be nice if there was a tripod that kept the camera level, staring at the ground/ceiling.
added a disqus comment feature to my 365 tumblr, now it feels less like a secluded picture dumping ground and more like an art site style gallery, yay
now if only I had viewers to comment, maybe I'll just go to flickr and spam links in award groups so I get a dozen trophies on everything ;~;
been shooting a bunch of film, so I haven't had the opportunity to develop/upload new stuff in a little while.
Dai your avatar gives me the willies.
I've got a spare one if you want it
I was so used to the moving avatar, Dai. I didn't even realize it was you for a bit cuz of your new one.
would be so awesome if i had a big avatar of my face
Stretch all the pages and annoy EVERYBODY
Do that with MLP instead, if you want to annoy everybody.
i dont want no got dang animay pern all up the side uh mah fahr'm
or got dang pahnies either
why don't i just have a photo of some tits, would that appease you all?
holy shit i wish i could snowboard locally
They are distinctly different though, but they both rely on the same skiing techniques so they're easy to switch between. If you learned on snow, you'll do fine on a dry slope, and vice versa.
I've been skiing my whole life, I feel totally natural doing it, so it might just be a natural ability of mine to slide on slippy surfaces .
Maybe next time come to B.C you can come and do some real mountain skiing with me.
I'm going to Lake Tahoe in March too.
P.S. I'll pm you what films I want soon, I've been putting off the decision since I've been travelling so much and I have no idea about film .
i get to go to telluride to snowboard in a month, excited
it'll be my 11th year snowboarding i think lol
I go snowboarding almost 4 times a week. Lol. only a 20-30 minute drive.
but the issue was when he posted on someone's visitor page
it would rescale it so that the widest edge fit the width of the avatar field, but because of that it amplified the avatar fifty times and stretched the page forever
