    The winter is a pretty shitty time around here to take photos, because it's either too snowy to take out the camera, or everything is covered in really ugly slush. Yesterday was probably the first nice day in a month, so I went out shooting:

    What exactly is cross-processsing? I have like 20 actions that do cross-process but dont know what they're supposed to do, or what look they try to accomplish

    Basically, it's the look you'd get with film by processing your film in the 'wrong' kind of chemical. It's generally associated with lomography/rough photography.

    my favorite was to take fuji astia or provia and develop it in c-41 instead of e6

    Really enjoyed the geese pictures. We have them in a park near where i live but because it doesnt snow as much as it does near you, the pictures we take are quite bland.

    the lighting on that first shot is awesome! Great depth and color saturation..

    Where's your metadata? I was trying to see how you shot it, but it's not there...

    :(

    This is an earlier edit that seems to have maintained the metadata. I don't know how to copy/paste that, so I'll just post the pic.

    nope. still no metadata... crazy...


    I can get your metadata from the sirloin cellar shot:

    Camera Make: NIKON CORPORATION
    Camera Model: NIKON D80
    Image Date: 2007:03:05 16:25:38
    Flash Used: No
    Focal Length: 18.0mm (35mm equivalent: 27mm)
    Exposure Time: 0.010 s (1/100)
    Aperture: f/3.5
    ISO equiv: 100
    Exposure Bias: -0.33
    White Balance: Auto
    Metering Mode: Matrix
    Exposure: aperture priority (semi-auto)


    but it's blank on the duck...

    ah well... Nice shot.

    I think that's a combination of boosing contrast, no noise reduction, and doing a fairly sizeable crop. Anyways, as far as I know (and as far as the file tells me) it was shot at ISO 100.

    How's this? Some minor noise reduction:

    that first one is beautiful. I think I may have cut the top down some and had is focus more on the goose. but it's beautiful none the less.
     
  19. The bird shots are awesome IMO. I love the colors and detail. I'm amazed that you got close enough to shoot them with a 70mm lens.

    Also the black and white shot is amazing! Looks like you made it a HDR then converted to black and white :eek3:

    Haha, yes, I was definitely up in the bird's face. Sometimes they looked like they were about to charge me or some shit, but luckily the pictures look pretty serene. And...the black and white shot is HDR. I think HDR looks pretty shitty regularly, so the only time I shoot it is when I think the scene would look good in B&W.

    EDIT: I also split toned the B&W one, as if I didn't get enough dynamic range with HDR.
     
  21. Yeah it's great, almost looks like infrared :bigthumb:
