Some Photos I made while hunting for Frugal Film Project materials. Lomo 800 and the Diana F+ camera. The Best Garage Doors:
The images above are from a double garage, as are the ones below. But I separated the two doors above to have a clearer image of the writing……And the Flowers Below:
These were painted as part of the Lafayette Alley Art Amazin’ Project
It’s July….So lets take a cool tour back to the Fall of 2017……..
Unfortunately now one of the ‘hotspots’ for the COVID Pandemic, But I was there a few year’s ago for The Pecora Remote Sensing Conference, held every three years. Hopefully the world will be in a better condition by the time the next Conference rolls around……
So Let’s focus on the actual Falls………
There is also an Old Power Plant, now a restaurant:
And an Old Mill:
See my Original Postings here.
I did a lot of photography in Old Town for the Frugal Film Project last Winter. Still haven’t quite posted everything……….
But I am also working on the Thursday Door Project. And I happen to have quite a few Doors from FFP to share. We visit here a local Photographer’s Shop (he/she wasn’t in):
A little tease for this week’s Thursday Door:
Okay, the steps probably are a give away! This mural is located on the side ow the WOW Museum for Children in Lafayette.
And some details from the wall:
I Rang Out on Wednesday using the Solari Bell. By the time you see this I will be on my way Home:
And Yes, I am taking my ‘friend’ the Mask. More Scenes from my life over the past 2 Months:
I still have tons of images to post from my Arizona Experience. Those will appear from time to time throughout the Summer.
First the Quote from Frank H. Wu on 35mmc:
“The lesson to be learned about life is that we, or at least I, do not appreciate as much what I have been given as what I have had to bargain for. I earn my film photos. I have to be able to afford it. That means repeatedly. Each and every satisfying click and whirr is a few pennies, which must be in the pocket. I am automatically averse to waste.”
The conclusion is that His film photos are always personally more satisfying (and often objectively better) than His digital images.
My best photos are definitely film. One of last year’s successes IS digital (shown above), but I planned and captured the image like it was film. I saw the potential image, walked around the scene looking for the best angles, made three images; taking into consideration how I might crop the final images as well. And THINKING like a film photographer avoids Waste. For a digital Photographer, the “waste” is all that time you spend in front of the computer sorting through hundreds of images that you would never use. For any given scene, when shooting film I have at most 4-5 images to sort through. If you think film is expensive, what is all that time you spend in Lightroom or Photoshop worth? The most I do in Photoshop is adjust the contrast and brightness for posting online. In the (real) Darkroom I do the film tests and adjust the Contrast using filters. Of course, if I have used the proper contrast filter and exposure when capturing the image, adjustments will be straight forward. Hmmmm……I’m feeling that I need to write a post on Contrast Filters, coming soon!
