Went to play on one of my favorite roads this weekend and my friend who is an amazing photographer came along to photograph. I really like his photography because, aside from the last one, these photographs are only edited as much as you can edit in a darkroom.

1. This was a shot of me turning a $1200 camera into a weedwhacker.

4 and 5 are win. 8 Would be bad fucking ass if the wheel was turned a wee bit more and 13 is just pretty. (I've never noticed how much the lights on the impresa look like the JDM Silvia's)

I've always thought the looked more like the R34 skyline's headlights than the S14's lights.

I think that if you're going to have a big dump of unresized photos, you should put them in separate posts, so that anyone who gives a shit can scroll across a single photo. Rather than scroll down to the bottom of the post, scroll over a little, then scroll back up to the photo of interest, etc.

I also think that I've mentioned this before.

Fortunately, the photos aren't interesting enough for me to care.

But for anyone who wants people to look at the other half (2/3, 3/4) of his oversized photos, this info might be useful.

Hello,

And welcome to computers. I know it's been a while since you've seen TECHNOLOGY, but we've made a lot of advances in the last few years. One of the many advances in TECHNOLOGY, is screen resolution.

You see, the standard resolution for TECHNOLOGY these days are 1280x1024. If you can't use this resolution or are on a screen smaller than 14", perhaps it time for you to upgrade! With the wonderful new and exciting world of TECHNOLOGY, you too can enjoy computers.

Also, shut the fuck up you cunt. Who the fuck cares if you can't see it, get a fucking screen and a video card that can resolute more than 800x600 you piece of shit. I hope your dad chokes on your mom's cock and dies, seriously. Why are you even in this thread if you don't want to see the pictures? Kill yourself, your family, your pets and crash your car into your place of business, because anybody who would hire someone as retarded as you shouldn't have any kind of business.

Some of the pics are quite nice, but don't overdo certain effects.
On the sliding around the corner pics the photographer should get low so the perspective looks more impressive.
For the last one using CK is a nice idea but if you do so do it all the way.

there were no effects used, man. None of these photos were photoshopped, only as much as a photo could be edited in a darkroom, except for the last one which was obviously photoshopped.

Effects as in long exposure time and fast moving object you dumb shit. To make it plain, the ones shot out of the car with the car being in focus (since it did not move relative to the camera) while the rest has the motion blure...

@serge, I guess those where RAW pictures and you have a digital darkroom where you can push them or set the whitebalance etc.

My wife was at our nearby photo-haven. You can get Hasselblads for $600 these days! Holy shit! I am a suck-ass photog but she's always wanted one. Cats these days are shooting, developing scanning images. There is a particular scanner they recommended, I forgot the name. But it's $800.

Considering a Hallelbadass used to be $3,000 for just the body/whatever, it's N absurd deal.

Well here is the thing, having a habla is not all, you need the back, that is what will fuck you over. Then you need lenses and as you mentioned a scanner if you don't go for a digital back (which afaik does not run under 6000$). Hence you might buy a habla but will run up with all the other shit. If I was your wife, I would go for a Nikon D200/d2/d3 or a canon 50D/5D MarkII those are the best price value right now. And with the 5D you have a FF camera under 3000$.
If you want to go cheap and good go nikon d90.

She's a University Prof (I marred up LOL!) so I think she can get a research grant. The lens+back was $600, then the scanner for $800 and she's good to go. btw, she is a [email protected], nice stuff.

Me? I could do good photos of underaged girls in volleyball outfits picking up dog poo. How's that eh?

no, what I mean is, he shoots with a Canon 30D, takes the raw files and puts them in photoshop. He doesn't use any photoshop effects that he couldn't do in a darkroom with film.
