    I really wish people would stop cutting off their blacks. I'm just so bored of that, everyone and their mom does it and with the rise of instagram and the alikes it really lost all retro or artistic or moody meaning it once had remembering us off old pictures that lost their grip, their freshness.

    I understand that it takes the tension out of the picture and transports that "old" and "earthed" message but for years photographers have been trying to get as much different tones of dark and light into pictures as possible, the digital photography provoked a vintage trend and now we are trying to make pictures look as shallow as possible because of "hey I like that look"...

    Shoot in pitch black.

    You might be cutting of the blacks though so you could be called a hipster.

       Use tape or re-seal/have it re-sealed.

    we had one of those for our school ball

    the photos are all kinda shitty...
    The live photos are all bad, the staged were okay but the photographers all wanted these really un-natural looking poses, really ruins the "couple" feel of them

    So I went out of the country this weekend, got some awesome shots!

    A panorama shot of a piece of the land on which we stayed for the night.


    afriskipanorama1 by Yokim-Pillay, on Flickr

    Sherry!


    DSC_0300 by Yokim-Pillay, on Flickr

    This is a local on the top of the highest point in Africa (where we went), it's called the Sani Pass. 9 degrees Celsius, with the wind it felt like -2. It was fucking cold.


    DSC_0220 by Yokim-Pillay, on Flickr

    This is the road before the actual pass starts.


    DSC_0152 by Yokim-Pillay, on Flickr

    A cat where we stayed on the first night.


    DSC_0064 by Yokim-Pillay, on Flickr

    Another panorama, after the first night. Sunrise.

    And for the final picture, the 'Take Me' pose.

    Very nice indeed. The fact that it's slightly off-centre bothers me, but it's a great photo.

    Took this one night, goofing around with 20-25sec shutter times and an LED flashlight. Ran it through bleach bypass in Lightroom, which I now really enjoy. It makes uploading/importing so much easier, especially when dealing with RAW.


    I really like the light in the top left.

    I'm experimenting with the 'Brenizer Method', in this case getting some pretty awesome results using 23 photos in a panorama, shot with 50mm at f/1.4.
    Tomorrow, human testing as portraits.

    the phrase "human testing" sounds ominous.

    even in this context.

    WHat is that?
    They're trees. The camera has been violently tipped forward and backward to blur the trees vertically when taking the shot.

    I'm playing with those extension tubes (which sadly have their release mechanisms broken and can't be used one at a time) and the 50mm and it's like I'm holding a goddamned microscope.
