    hmm edit... turns out i didn't do everything right, i was spot on with timing and amounts of solutions except the developing solution..like an idiot i didn't dilute it with water and only put in one ounce...don't ask me how i made such a mistake i'm just retarded haha

    well live and learn i guess, onto my next roll of film...

    are you using a 35mm SLR camera with a light meter, if the needle is in the middle it's a good picture, but careful on how you set the f/stop. setting it to 1000 will absolutley stop the action. and i see how you developed the pic, i see traces of wrinkles...

    Do you know the muffinman?

    yea i have a built in light meter, i set it to auto to find a good setting then set it to that setting, f stop at 1.7, i think the shutter was at 1/15 or 1/30

    mainly a lot of odd parts are due to the chemicals not being used properly..my mistake, more to come soon

    they chemicals are so easy to use, it's all about timing.

    so yea, here's my second print, the assignment was to find representation of shapes around us, i'm thinking i still need to burn the lower section a tiny bit and possibly sections of the sky or those light poles, otherwise i thought it was a pretty good composition but that's not entirely up to me


    as always c&c welcome

    The composition is definitely there, the VW pic is very interesting, and has great perspective. Great angle aswell..... I love darkroom work, and can't wait to be in a place where I can set up my enlarger...there's so much you can do!
    Just thought I'd ring in since you took the time to check my stuff out
    Keep us posted

    Dude, I miss the darkroom. These bring back some good memories from my high school photography class. Oh, and traditional film and darkroom is the truest form of the art of photography. I'm glad to know that there's still a few people doing it. lol

    thanks for the comments guys, you both have some awesome work that i have gotten some inspiration from

    yea, there are quite a few people out here in socal that do their own darkroom stuff, at my college we have a pretty large photography portion of the visual arts department. yea b&w is a lot of fun so far, i still need to pick up the subtle movements of burning and dodging but otherwise it's going pretty smoothly, i really can't wait until color photo stuff. i'd also like to dable in the realm of digital slr's, they seem like a lot of fun

    well long post on my part, thanks again for your kind words

    finished the overall composition and contrast of this one, pretty happy with it (more shapes stuff)









    this one is a bit out of focus(the car), i was rushing and forgot to use a grain focuser...o well i'll get to it next week

    anyways as is you guys get the feel of it, i'll post the in-focus version so you can see the difference




    also i noticed the dark spec on it, damn eraser dust, i'd rescan but i figure no point at this point in time b/c i'll scan in the in-fcous version later


    as always c&c very welcome

    enjoy

    I really love your eye for scenes. When I look at your photos it seems as though you should be filming rather then taking pictures. Have you ever tried filmmaking? I think you've got the eye for it.

    cool to see your use of traditional photography! I look forward to watching the progression of your thread too! My faves so far are the pieces of fabric hanging with light behind them, the night shot of the tower and stars, the soundboard/mixer closeup, and that last quote by Angela.. awesome!

    Thumbs up

    I really love the concept behind "it came from the bathroom" i'd almost rather have a black and white feel though, it seems to look better that way, and besides you seem to be really into B&W and you should work with that, it speaks of your style...

    i think the best photo here is the first one though. The car seems to be coming out of itself from teh trunck, it's really great and like with most things i like initially, i don't know why.

    some crit:

    as far as teh night photos go, i think the lit figure could be really stunning and maybe it's just teh size of the photo, but I can barely make out what's going on, i think it could be a tad to dark... if that's redundant and ironic because they are night photos go ahead and laugh, i know i am.

    i like your use of macro and different aperature, but don't get too carried away with it, make sure you know why you are using it instead of just using it because the frame is boring without it. A great use (but typical) is with the mixer, it makes sense to do it there because of the suggested motion of the slides and knobs, foreground to background etc. it gives it depth, but in the case of the tiny sprout/bark in front of the waterfall/brook it doesn't do justice to the scene, nor the sprout.

    your VW image is probably the best composition wise, it's obvious you put a lot of time and film into that shot to get it perfect, and i commend you for doing justice to the subject matter.

    i think the cross-handed sweatshirt person night photo dealio is really neat, and probably your luckiest capture (often times it takes a lot of luck and persistence to get a memorable and worthwhile picture) but again it's a bit dark, and while i do agree with you on the grain, i would really like to be able to hone in on her facial expression, because i know i've been there huddled in the cold wind head down and thinking about getting by the fire...

    with your latest set, i don't think you're being as critical as you were earlier in your posts, photography (especially digital in my case) is about being super critical and only keeping your best work. I took 60 some pictures yesterday at a state park, and only thought 4 were anything near decent enough to consider printing/posting.

    but i know you do a lot of crits around this place, and i appreciate all your comments and don't know why i havn't seen your thread before, so i thought i'd try and do the whole boyscout thing

    great stuff overall though enjecktshun. lovin' it

    wow thanks man

    yea this last batch was more of a ressurection post haha, the only one i like out of the bunch is the rose

    i made a nice mental note of the macro crit, you're totally right that the sprout shot does not do justice to the sprout and after all it is the subject metter so it should be the emphasis, not get buried in the rest of the action. i'm thinking that shot would've been better if it were taken in more of a style like my tower shot, kind of to show some personality withing the sprout like "hey i'm a big guy too!" i'll note that and keep it in mind for when i go back

    as for the night shot, i kinda goofed on that one, i really wanted his face to be crisp and focsed but i must've bumped the camera a little and i think he moved a bit since it was a 4 minute shot. the whole thing about them being too dark i definitely agree with, i should go back and mess with them a little, i think the contrast is good, but i think i overdid and didn't do enough of the burning and dodging

    thanks again for the crits i'll have some more to post up soon, gotta develop my portraits this week

    that's too bad, oh well such is the plight of photographers, i suppose our toil is more in crossing fingers than fleshing out painstaking details. but i'm looking forward to them...

    that B&W shot of the laid out portraits keeps me coming back, i really love it for some reason, the position of the shots and how they seem raw and well more real... i think it's much more successful than simply lining them up like you do in the color shot below the B&W one. just a thought whilst passing by.

    I also really like the b&w 'bathroom' series. Really great. I could really see this becoming a cool theme to continue with. Not necessarily the bathroom theme although that is a good one, but the sequential candid theme in other scenarios. Very cool. And just really great to see your experimentation and enthusiasm. Keep posting more!

    A really interesting thread with an amazing mix of subject matter. I also think that BW is where your future lies, and yes if you carry on being so readily -prepared to experiment and being so self-critical. I would say you certainly do have a future in photography.

    I'm a happy chappie.
