  1. Scanner for 35mm

    I get some weird error message with this link.
  2. Random Photo Discussion

    I would Ivan in exchange for some prints or something (always liked your work), but my winder is dying so I doubt you'd get much use from it. Might just keep it as parts for my GF's T5 if it starts to break. My friend has a Klasse. I haven't shot on it, but have held it and it feels super solid. The results from it look nice, definitely up there in T2/T4 area. I guess since they're somewhat "new" it should last awhile.
  3. Random Photo Discussion

    Tell me about it. I remember seeing all the good P&S cameras going regularly for $200ish. I wish I'd bought up abunch of cameras back then, woulda been making some good money these days. I paid $180 CAD for mine about 5 years ago.
  4. Random Photo Discussion

    Considering selling my Yashica T4. Has a weird rewind issue where it'll start to rewind the film 5ish frames away from the last one. I suspect the motor is slowly dying. Any idea what to price it as?

    Jeff Wall. Good amount of behind the scenes footage, and what goes into his images. http://www.cbc.ca/player/play/2674706522
  6. Scanner for 35mm

    I've never had much fun scanning on my V600, at least with 35mm. It's slow and I never got the scans as sharp as I'd like, but I have seen people get good results from them. I think you just need to take your time and expect to spend almost an hour per roll. Dedicated 35mm scanners are pretty expensive though, I think you'd be looking around $800+ for a Pakon or those Nikon ones. Found this tutorial to be helpful.
  7. Indonesia

    Last one is pretty epic.

    Thanks man. Processing wise I don't really do much. Maybe tweak the levels a little bit. I generally prefer images with less contrast. Scanning is all done by the lab. I'm not sure how to check EXIF data. I know they use a Noritsu, but not sure if this is what they used.
  9. what's up with your website?

    Good thread. Recently made a site after putting it off for awhile. Feels good to start putting some work in order, but I find it challenging figuring out how to best sequence the photos. I have two different projects, however I'd say they're fairly similar in subject matter. I just think it's better to have two projects around 14ish photos each than one that's 28 photos. Looking to upload some more stuff, but want to nail these two first. I would say it's still a work in progress. There's a couple photos I'd like to re-scan. I've been using cargo collective as it's what I was using for my graphic design portfolio. Pretty simple to use, and offers the ability to customize it as you please. At this point I'm fine with it looking like everyone else's website. I don't think it's a bad thing for many sites to look similar, as the layout shouldn't take away from the work. I personally prefer to view one image at a time, rather than a scrolling list. That way you're not seeing the cut off images that are before and after, you can appreciate one photo at a time. C&C always appreciated. www.cargocollective.com/sometimeperhaps
  10. Trips coming up?

    Would like to take a vacation this year, didn't have one last year due to moving out and whatnot. Not really sure where to go. Never been anywhere in the world south of Chicago, so I have no idea what tropical weather feels like. Still want to do a road trip to the east coast of Canada, which seems like the total opposite of tropical.

    Good to know. Thanks again for all the advice!
  12. Last month(s)

    Thanks for all the advice, really appreciated it. This is what I've been missing since SP went away. I do like coffee so maybe I'll try some coffee shops first. I guess just explain who I am and what I do? Maybe offer to frame a few prints that work well together and ask if they'll show them? Something along those lines. Thanks! I missed it too.

    This is the first time I've tried to sequence my photo's and create a narrative/sequence which I find quite hard to do. I think I've done alright creating a beginning and end, but everything in between is tricky. I've gone back and forth moving things around, but not really sure how to do it. Perhaps printing 4 x 6's and physically moving them around would be easier than trying to do it on the computer. That way I can see everything at once. Any advice for building a body of work? I'd like to try and exhibit some work, and that's something I'm working towards. This site is a first step in that direction.
  14. 2018 Resolutions Thread

    At the end of 2017 I finally put together a website with work, so the goal this year is to keep up with it. Will start updating my Tumblr with random shots as well. Also planning on submitting work to blogs/websites and whatnot to hopefully gain exposure. Would be cool to print some stuff, or maybe make a zine.
