Oh I hate them with a passion... I just would rather see good ones then
bad ones hence the little "advice".
I hear ya', and it's awesome you're helping others out in this thread. Truly
appreciated. Even though to be honest, I personally would rather not see
one at all but we both know that'll never happen. Ha!
I had a b/w class the semester before last that you had to have 3 new
rolls of film every class. i.e. had to shoot 45 rolls in a semester. thats
like 1500 shots on 35mm film...
You guys with dslr's should be living that life, the 35mm camera was
built for you to just rip thru film. With dslr it cost you nothing to shoot
and 35mm wasnt built to spend 10mins composing a shot... thats why
they have medium and large format. Even 35mm film is cheaper, for me
12 shots (a roll of 120film) in color costs nearly $8 w/ processing. Shoot
and set them up as contact sheets, looking even thumbnail images you
can tell compostion...
Yeah, I really need to go out and shoot more. I always lug my camera
around with me, but for some reason I just never feel like taking it off
my shoulder. Lack of inspiration perhaps? I have no clue. But I decided
that I'm going to start shooting at least fifty different shots (I say
different, because I tend to bracket my shots) everyday this summer
and just hopes it transitions over to the rest of the year and from there
for the rest of my life. I also got some projects I want to get going
already, so hopefully I'll have those projects running soon and
completed by summer's end.Quote:
I like square, 6x6 but nontheless, seeing compositions even without a
camera is def. something to do...
Depending on the subject and the project, I will crop the photo into a
square but I'm quite bias to the traditional rectangle picture.
I guess I'm not alone. Same thing goes for abandoned warehouses.
Yeah, abandoned warehouses tend to be overshot as well but at least
they can be interesting (to me at least). For me, flower macro shots are
never interesting. I feel like I'm looking at the same photo each time I
see them. Which is never a good thing.
