    What's up with self photography lately? It's like everyone is becoming narcissist.
    don't worry, my wireless trigger is arriving soon so I'll be taking bopie-esque pictures as well now

    You've already said this. My excuse was loneliness.
    Yeah I'm not blamming you, but this has become a bandwagon and I just scroll and see the faces of the same people photographing themselves every fucking day.

    No criticism about the photos themselves, they're dope, but the whole idea behind taking a tripod and shooting yourself - why?

    it's great practice. because you know what you want from your shots if you do work with people, because you've been both the model and the photographer.

    Food for thought, haven't thought about that kind of approach.
    I'm still sticking with the fact that I think it's kind of narcissistic.

    Youre sailing into a shit typhoon, you better haul in the jib before it gets covered in shit by certain people that will jump on this.

    Yes your taste will diversify as you expand your photographic... worldview (I guess, not sure how to put it) beyond this forum. Also the more exposure you have to the oh-so-beaten-to-death 'film look' (or better yet, shoot enough film yourself), you'll notice a lot of it falls pretty short and actually looks horrible. A good chunk of the 'film look' is more of a caricature of real film, or simply an interpretation of what other people are doing.

    that makes a lot of sense, I think it's like before I got a DSLR anything with a subject slightly off center and shallow depth of field looked amazing whereas now it's nothing special

    but I just feel that if there's a photo that isn't that great, a film look can sort of save it if you know what I mean?

    composition could probably show a bit more of her face. Lovely lighting down to the screen's light on her thumb.
    I feel the focus being on the phone was a nice touch.

    I'll save you the stock responses about how PP won't save a bad photo and you need a good shot in the first place, etc.

    This is where the interpretation thing I mentioned comes in. You slap on this 'style' and suddenly the image looks like a good one. Much in the way that HDR is frequently used to make pictures look like whatever inspires them.

    People get hooked on a few surface aspects of images that inspire them, and in-turn spit out simplified versions of the original inspiration - neglecting the more important things and/or the finer details that get looked over.

    Edited:

    Even worse is when the inspiration is already a watered down version of an even 'higher' original inspiration. It becomes sort of like a game of telephone.

    Curious to know if this is film or not, great shot regardless.
    None of the shots i posted were film, but i did try to emulate a film look on a few. I'm guessing i did a fair job since you had a hard time telling the difference. :)



    What's up with self photography lately? It's like everyone is becoming narcissist.
    Well my "excuse" if you will for this is that I'm doing a 365 and its much more aesthetically pleasing to have a decent subject and I'm always available to myself so i use me. I try to vary it, but what can you do? Bopie had a lot of selfies for the same reason, anyone that does a 365 does.

    And Like Trogdon said, you can learn how to pose yourself in a photograph, and how to take it at the same time. I find knowing how to pose myself helps me to pose anyone i want to pose for me, especially guys who are usually very rigid. It doesn't feel narcissistic to me taking self portraits, saying that would imply that i absolutely love how i look on camera and love photographing myself which isn't true, i'd much rather have a subject.

    A couple buddies and I decided to do some late-night exploration of some abandoned structures in the wilderness a few weeks back. Didn't come super prepared but but here's a few shots that I liked.










    May have gone a little crazy with the noise reduction on that last one.

    Thanks a lot! It means more to me than it should to receive positive feedback.
    I find myself checking this site and Flickr several times a day to see if anyone likes what I made. I guess I'm unsure of the quality of my products, but really how could one not with all of these great artists around.. Love the stuff on this forum :)

    can you guys help me achieve some more foresty tones?

    feel free to edit the picture and upload.

    it's for my project in uni, doing a photo to every line of this poem segment

    'There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
    There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
    There is society, where none intrudes,
    By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
    I love not man the less, but Nature more'

    Just looking for some nicer tones, and i'm pretty shit with that kind of stuff.

    First time ever using reversal film, colours seem to be pretty nice. A bit sad though, since I haven't shot colour in a while, and this is the first time I've scanned colour shots properly, just realised how much CA my lens gives. Guess that might have something to do with it being chemically cleaned due to fungus D:

    4 and 5 are my favourites out of them.

    The others seem to be lacking some sort of subject.

    I'm not too sure, but are you completely certain you haven't just seen the photographs of BlazeFresh and myself and thought they were self portraits? They were photographs we took of each other... Because I haven't actually seen too many 'selfies' in the last few pages.
