tumblrbot asked:WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE INANIMATE OBJECT?
My boyfriend and I happened upon a car show on the way to dragon boat races and stopped to view. We took both digital and film photos and the ones shown here were film using a Minolta.
During my photography class I had the idea of photographing India ink in water. I ended up taking 4 rolls of film, using a variety of lenses and lighting to achieve what I wanted. This was the result. They are 8x10 mounted on matte board.
After learning how to use an enlarger and the effects of light on photopaper, we were given the task of experimenting and creating images using only the enlarger and paper and random objects we wanted to use. My objects included a magnifying glass, leaves, business cards, keychain, crushed candy, paper with typing on it, and more.
I learned in a photography class how to process and develop film. Our task for the first project was to print a picture on an 8x10 piece of photo paper with specific border measurements. It took a lot of measuring, marking, and remeasuring.
I haven’t touched my tumblr in ages and figured since I have a photo class coming up, I should start showcasing some things. I guess I will start with a previous photo class I took which touched on the basics of black and white film photography. I’ll start with some pinhole photos. They were taken with a homemade pinhole camera made out of a soup can and a tiny tomato paste can. We used photopaper instead of film and I have gotten so used to seeing the negative image that the positive image just isn’t as interesting.
This is at the base of a bush in a planter…
This was an attempt at a 360…
I decided to dedicate this blog to all things photography and in a sense this post is semi-related…
Someone on facebook posted a video of people creating an interesting piece of artwork with paint…
How the paint reacts with the other layers is awesome and I’m not artsy enough to know much about paint but needless to say it was cool.
Off to the side under “suggestions” there was this. It’s an add for a printer but the context of the video is far more interesting…
It’s cool to see the colours mixing and interacting up close and slowed down. I would love to experiment and photograph it if I could. I don’t have much to say because our language is limiting when it comes to describing experiences. Instead I’ll show you…
Here is the blog for the sound sculptures.
So I lied, and have one more contribution for today. I recently got an iphone4 for the price of a 3yr contract (which is awesome) and spent an entire weekend playing with it. A good chunk of that time came from an app called Lomolomo which is a “diana camera” with a variety of “lenses”. And since I can’t afford an actual lomo camera (apprx. $297) the app will have to do. I spent a few hours playing with the lens types and taking pictures of my collection of kinder egg toys (which include fuzzy monkeys and dinosaurs, and New Holland construction). I’ve also posted a picture created from the app TiltShiftGen to make things look like toys. I will admit the camera quality on the iphone4 is incredible, especially coming from a 2yr old BB Pearl.
This is my first ever HDR photo using Nik Software. I tried with photoshop and I could not for the life of me make my photo HDR until I got Nik Software which I absolutely love.
If you want to see some more pictures of mine they are here.
That is all for today.
I finally got around to uploading the photos from October onto my computer. I had gone to watch fire spinning at Galt Gardens in Lethbridge, AB and took about 300 pictures. Some of them absolutely blow my mind because the flame was not just a light amongst a dark background looking like floating light. Instead it looked like watching the base of a log while burning and being able to see the dimensions of the flame. I will eventually get around to putting them up on redbubble or something but there are just too many to pick from which is why they are still sitting on my camera and harddrive. I, like many, like to find animals or attribute characteristics to things that aren’t living organisms. Whilst looking through my pictures i came across quite a few that I saw dragons in. There are about 5 or 6 but I’ve only posted the obvious ones. Along with the dragons there were a few serpents, and a runaway spider..
