I can't remember the name of our old photo thread.

The X100 went to New Year's Eve. I was drunk by the time I pulled it out and had the exposure compensation dialed in at -1 so the exposures kinda got blown. Oops.
Shot a roll with my Rolleiflex that might have some decent stuff on it.

first scan I've been happy with (boring photo but I knew it was properly exposed and sharp enough) - TMax 100 (2002-3ish) scanned on the Plustek 7600i w/ Vuescan. Psyched to get something going (at least for small prints and online display), since I've got 75 rolls of B&W film to work through over the next few months.

oh that's nice, milo. not boring.
somehow really sad to be back at ILP, feel like it can never be as good as the out of control freight train that was the sandbox photography thread was.

i am getting a bunch of rolls of film processed tomorrow, maybe inspired by the talk of backlogues in the sandbox. some of it is from 2010, which is a long time ago now. also picking some up, & i have a hand-me-down scanner with which to scan any visible & worthwhile prints, i'm p psyched.

hey ILP i just remembered an amusing flickr story & i figure you guys are the choir for me to preach it at, it is also sorta-relevant to the 'are you favouriting a photo or its contents' thing we discussed a little in the sandbox, re: pictures of girls on flickr. my friend took a photo of me, once, on the street, and it ended up on her flickr. it is a good photo. & i was perusing her photos some while later & saw that two people had added it to their favourites, one a guy i sorta know, & the other person a stranger, someone i never knew who had been so beguiled by my representation that they had declared it their favourite thing. i was so thrilled by this adoration, so clicked through to the guy's profile, & found this long, modern-photographer tract in the bio about how he FOUND BEAUTY IN THINGS OTHERS WOULD NOT FIND BEAUTIFUL, DEVASTATED RUINS, DEAD BIRDS, &c&c&c.

it really took the shine off the compliment.

aw! this is so exciting to me. did i ever tell that story about jane bown, & how devastated i was to find out that she used an om-1, rescinding my ability to blame my tools for my poor photos

http://www.andrewward.com/Photos/jane_bown/jane_bown_samuel_beckett_london.jpg

when i was a little younger i had a kinda love-hate relationship with it, because it has a much smaller kind of 'remove' or 'rendering process', to me, compared to when i see something taken by a pentax that looks otherly & framed & cinematic. om-1s are very real. i'm actually slightly mournfully considering swapping mine out for another, having seen a couple in shop windows etc, recently; it's probably eaten three of the last ten films i've shot, which is obviously partly user error but is partly it jamming at twenty four frames or having trouble spooling the tail of the film & so not even shooting (fwiw i'd recommend taking a couple of shots while you're staring at the roll, watching it feed into the spiral); from what i understand they do have a slight rep for this. what were you getting it sent away for ..?

really like your kodachrome shots; they have a very full spectrum of colour, like the darkness of the blacks in the lobby shot. i just got some weird kodak slide film back, i'll scan something & maybe post here soon.

haha otm. that said, I do slightly blame my lovely Canon and heavy-ass lenses for the fact that I'm not taking as many pictures as I used to -- it's just much too much faff to lug around London all the time. That's one of the reasons I'm pretty excited about the new Fuji.

judith, Monday, 9 January 2012 14:55 (six years ago) Permalink

ha yeah i guess so. he's got a giacometti face.

about having the appropriate/convenient gear to use, i think there's another funny equipment paradox, the same way that there is with analogue/digital, in which some people find the perceived limits of analogue actually useful & conducive to getting along with your camera - i feel like having p much restricted myself to a camera i can hang on my shoulder & slightly batter into things (i scraped it against a cobbled stone wall yesterday, high-five), carry around under a bag strap without noticing, &c, is really useful, & what i forgo in having a variety or quality of lenses i make up for in having my camera with me all the time. this is obv my perspective & i can see the compelling better-actual-photos argument against it, but i feel like having a camera there whenever you're outside is the point, for me, & i would be bummed to be restricted by cumbersome equipment. i guess this a good argument for small cameras in general.

quick brown fox triangle (schlump), Monday, 9 January 2012 15:30 (six years ago) Permalink

I bet everyone pretty much agrees: the best camera is the one you have with you, be it point-and-shoot or cell phone or whatever. The worst camera is the one sitting at home.

lou reed scott walker monks niagra (chinavision!), Monday, 9 January 2012 15:36 (six years ago) Permalink

yes. & kinda as an extension of that, i am sitting next to a yashica i never use, but the familiarity i have with my om-1 so trumps the added potential of anything new. i know this makes me sound set in my ways. but i don't even have to look at it, sometimes, & alla that old shit is designed so harmoniously to fit well with the way your brain and hands work.

out of curiosity, does anyone have a little kinda pocket camera, stuff like those contax that i have no idea of the model # of or way to describe? i've seen a lot of like really nice photographs by ppl like sofia coppola, & a couple of friends of mine, they're somehow really disruptive to my idea of a slr/medium format hierarchy, & really intriguing to me. i guess i am thinking analogue here.

quick brown fox triangle (schlump), Monday, 9 January 2012 15:43 (six years ago) Permalink

There's really no reason that a giant top of the line Nikon 35mm SLR would take a picture that's technically any better than a compact rangefinder or something like the Rollei, really. I mean they're both just opening a door to shine some light on a piece of 35mm film for a portion of time, no matter how big or small the container around it is. Only difference I can figure would be the lens.

I use an Olympus Stylus too. That's point-and-shoot autoexposure, built in flash etc. For going to bars or the beach or whatever. Does just fine.
And that old picture of Death Valley of mine upthread is from a bottom of the line Olympus Trip from my high school days:

Unlike digital cameras where a more expensive piece of equipment gets you a larger sensor (basically like switching film formats), the cheapest and most expensive film cameras all use the same size "sensor." And you get to switch it out at will.

lou reed scott walker monks niagra (chinavision!), Monday, 9 January 2012 15:48 (six years ago) Permalink

Like you could shoot full frame by buying a 5D ii, or just using the Olympus Trip.

lou reed scott walker monks niagra (chinavision!), Monday, 9 January 2012 15:49 (six years ago) Permalink

yep. i eventually found that really reassuring - i know we had quite a lens-y discussion on a previous ILP thread, & gear is really only a small priority for me, certainly dwarfed by a) film & b) the thing i am taking a photo of. i think i had an example of a guy who'd tried out taking different shots of a bookcase to demonstrate differences in grain who, to me, seemed to be clinically insane.

i should prob get a point & shoot sometime, maybe just to have a camera with a flash. i like not necessarily having compartmentalised what-camera-works-best, though; when i used to play with a digital i would use it for like 'throwaway' stuff - goofy things i saw - & i like it better using a camera for anything you see that seems appropriate. just talking day-to-day roaming, not that there aren't appropriate & instrumental choices.

xp ah!, more evidence in the pro- column then

quick brown fox triangle (schlump), Monday, 9 January 2012 15:49 (six years ago) Permalink

schlump the om-1 wasn't fully winding all the time on one wind, needed to take two sometimes. I sent it to www.zuiko.com but dunno if that's an option for you, you split time between the pond is that right?

I used to carry around a XA2 for color 'graphs, it was okay but it was kind of annoying because exposure was auto w/ no compensation (funny, you figure out why manufacturers include these settings in maybe your 10th year as a photographer.) I switched it for a rollei 35, more inconvenient but has more manual functionality.

I know terry richardson uses some yashica point and shoot (probably because of some kind of affected hipster 'oh I couldn't be bothered to learn how to actually use it, this works perfectly okay' faux naivete) or something

have thought about getting one of the mythical contax or fuji point and shoots but really, they're not that much smaller

leica cl's perhaps the best compromise

Yup it's a clue that you only ever hear guys talking about their lenses when taking pictures of, like, brick walls, and not when talking about, like, great photographs.

Funniest part of these is the abhorrence of vignetting, like that's a fatal flaw in lens design. Especially w/ digital, where one click removes any vignetting you might see.

I don't have a P&S, but I've had a Canonet QL17 forever, a Kodak Retinette (scale-focus 35mm) I found in my great-grandmother's stuff from Canada, and I just bought a Hexar AF off Craigslist.

The AF is interesting - it's big (pretty much the same size and weight as my X100), but freakishly quiet (even w/o turning on silent mode) and the fixed lens is basically a copy of a previous-generation Leica 35mm Summicron.

hey thank you! a flattened geometric picture would actually be okay to me. all of those pictures i posted look really weird & different large (which, to provide an unsolicited directors commentary for them, you can see by changing the /s700/ in the urls to /s0/), which i think is only a thing for me when it's sunny & i'm not shooting wide open. it's interesting.

also i was wondering: i got a new phone a while ago, so have been kinda enjoying outsourcing some of my goofier/more colourful shooting to the camera on it, but i'm so into occasionally recording stuff, too. do any of you use video in a similar way to stills? it's becoming really interesting to me, like this new thing to play with & think about. i'll maybe post a thing itt at some point.

i'm all up on yr IHKH, so these weren't new to me, but they're so nice. i used to see your photos & think i could tell which were point & shoot & which from an slr - maybe because some had the datestamp, i don't know - but it's harder now, there's a kind of looseness to them. i just got some photos back from a couple of months back, with this shot where i'd walked by a car in front of a car park in front of a building, & tried to shoot it, two of the cars different shades of red & the building built of pale red brick. it felt so much subtler than what i usually shoot, just about tone and echoes. it didn't come out particularly well, it isn't striking, but it felt smart, like a move in the right direction. those ^ photos are simpler & bolder than some, i think, like they're very neutral & strong & umm non-partisan, if i can extend the semantics of democratic photography to encompass other political actions.

the shoes remind me of one of my fav stephen shore shots (kinda at the other end of the spectrum, busier, more particular), i can't remember if i posted it here before

hey ilp
remember a while ago, everyone posted some photos they had taken on aeroplanes, it was fun & infectious, it drew upon a well of photographs drawn from an impulse common to camera carrying aeroplane passengers, it was both fun to do & so enjoyable to look at. earlier i was looking through somebody's photos & there was a really good shot of something that had a word on it. the word really popped. it was vague enough not to make the photo this literal thing, but meaningful enough to mean you were meeting the aesthetics half way. it was an influence on how you looked at it. even just the way the word was written. i think about words in photos a lot because they are simultaneously kinda easy meat, sometimes - they can do a lot of the heavy lifting, maybe, like if you take a photo of some kind of distressed-looking industrial marking that carries a lot of weight & has a certain authoritative aura, or maybe if you shoot a brand logo or something - but they can also be really abstract, in a bunch of ways, in isolating something from context or repurposing the language or letters. i remember reading david shrigley talk about how strange it was to think that a part of his day for any reason involved the phrase Why am I being asked for my password?, once he had zeroed in on it. i thought maybe some people could post some photos that have words in them. i am not totally just setting myself up to be leap in with my own awesome contributions under the guise of a democratic survey, like "did you ever meet anyone famous?" "uhh well i-" "WELL YES ONCE I MET BONO", eager to pounce. but i thought it might be a unifying subcategory of photos. is anyone in?

ended up with a nikkor 28mm-105mm lens that has a macro mode-- very very different from what i've been doing for the last 3.5 years, but that's kind of the point-- the rest of the roll is blurred/out of focus/overexposed lol

also have a 50mm prime f/1.4 coming in the mail this week.

they're lovely. so soft. that's w/400CN, right? doing things that are different in a way that makes you fuck up a lot is really good i think. i am pretty into the distortion of my phone camera right now.

rad words phots btw! i love that anything was ever industrially branded with FECALS

I wonder how many of us make a loose New Years resolution to take more shots, I am still a newbie pretty much but I've just gotten a couple of lenses for my Rebel (cheapo 50mm 1.8 Canon and an EF 85mm 1.8) and am looking at a Tokina Wide Angle lens. So this is my resolution, just opened a Flickr account and am also going to try to overcome my street shyness (this is hard, I live in London.)

I was up on the roof of my workplace testing my new 50.

I decided pretty much on a whim last Jan 1st to do a 366 project for that reason ("take more shots"), as all i was really doing was photographing bands. I've stuck at it, but not sure I've really improved all that much from it. Less than a week to go now, so that's good!
