this is the lens I want to get. the one I used for the rose photo. I think it has a very satisfying girth and shape.

some lens get thicker as they go along. some get thinner

some maintain their meat all along their length. this provides the user with immense gratitude





when I have this back in my hand, believe me, I will take photos with it

I have this lens. i mostly use it taking sharp photos of old slide film on a copy stand with a light table

did an autumn themed shoot. canít for the life of me decide if I prefer the one with the shadows lifted (less contrast) or shadows darker

I would love to feel like I could get them to look like film. anyway. I would like to know if thereís some kind of light room course that isnít about the basics. anyway.

contrast is good. you can use adjustment brushes and graduated filters to pull highlights up around the face if you donít want that to be too contrasty. be subtle though

went out to the ocean. it was so god drat cold, insanely cold, my legs ended up so numb I couldnít feel myself walking afterward lol


anyway I like that shot, almost looks like sheís so lost in thought she hasnít noticed the ocean has surrounded her

plus hopefully it really captures how grim and cold and etc it really was. I could warm it up and raise the shadows and etc, and I think thatís what the model would want for her portfolio, but for mine I like it as is

you just like advertising. those images are selling you the idea of being cool, or skinny, or young, or sexualized, or the idea that you're the cool photographer taking pictures of women who want to undress in front of you. they're selling you a lifestyle, and we grow up in a society where we're sold that visual lifestyle our entire lives. i don't think it's a mystery or incomprehensible why you'd find them alluring.

adapted. Iíve often wondered if this adds a few mm

it seems to work flawlessly

the adapter probably has to be very precise or I'd expect the auto-focus would be out.

sigma makes pretty good optics. historically their auto-focus implementations have been hit or miss.

this is interesting

thanks for the fuckin support man

I can really tell that we have fundamentally different ideas of what good photography is
that's one of my favorite photos that I have taken

before I raised the blacks, there was detail on the person. the photo was not better when it had detail, and raising the blacks not only fixed that issue, but also then met my ideals and the style I promote and hope to continue promoting

you crushed the blacks

the contrast-corrected version here looks like a WPA kodachrome and that's a good thing

the "film style" washed out look i think is pretty trite, but trite sells. a lot of people like mega-hdr photos and Live Laugh Love decals too

when you went to the drug store and they printed your film, the processor didn't make everything low contrast

is this a good photo? probably not. BUT there are some good colours.

itís a photo of a good thing rather than a good photo

my grandmother always would talk about these amazing sunset photos my grandfather took during his time in Korea. I found and scanned them for her. they were Kodachrome slides. really all they were ended up being a color gradient with a black tree line, but she really enjoyed them

here is a fun fact: a lens cannot focus light to a spot that is hotter than the surface of the emitter. so no matter what kind of giant special magic lens you have, you cannot focus moonlight into a spot hot enough to burn paper, because the moon's surface is only about 250 degrees fahrenheit. but the sun's surface is 10,000 degrees so

I wouldnít have thought the moon got that hot
