    Fuji XT2 with a 23mm f/2 WR for me. I miss my bronica but this is way more practical and I have like 5 FD lenses I can use too. Plus the new sensors are so good, it's way more practical for me.

    The first one is great, reminds me of when centered portraits were really trendy on here. Except this one has an ostrich (that is what that is I think?).

    Some new ones

    Yeah I would perhaps edit that guy out in the first one. It also might be a tiny bit crooked, judging by the vertical parts of the handrails and the poles in the background but other than that it's nice. BW was a good choice too.

    That's because SP has like 1/1,000,000th of the amount of instagram users. With that many people you're bound to get a lot of good stuff. I mean, OGmike did get the thrasher cover.

    I don't know, $45 for a 5 pack is insane. Looks like it has really prominent grain and gives off a really "in case you didn't notice this was taken on a FILM camera" look. Who makes it though? I can't imagine there's lots of photo film making factories and I somehow doubt that a major film maker like kodak or fujifilm or ilford is going to make it for them.

    Lettuce discuss: ogmike the MVP

    Saw an insta clip of it and recognized it but I didn't know who shot the photo. Congrats.
  8. Nah SP definitely was great. But there's skateboarding reddit now. I don't go there but I'll check right now, there's 154k subscribers to it. Granted, you couldn't be goob over there, you'd break their hugbox.

    Bump to Bar FS 180

    I think lighting that bush is a necessary side effect of lighting the landing, given his lighting place. I see what's going on but to me, it was initially confusing as to what direction he was traveling. If you thought this was just an ollie, then it looks like he's going left and out of the frame. But that doesn't make sense given the runup and where he's looking. If it were from the side more, it would be more obvious where exactly he is in the air.

    b/s tail by the river

    That might help, the picture is slightly noisy in general though. I don't know that you really gain anything by doing the ghosting thing. If anything, it might increase skater separation from the background if you didn't do it. His bright shirt helps with that though.

    land on my face

    I got nothing for you in terms of critique, you did a good job. Did you move after taking this?

    Perhaps everyone doesn't know it's back. Also since it was gone, people probably just lost habit of checking SP. SP wasn't gone that long but the internet is way different than when it was here. Facebook isn't as popular with younger kids because it's straight adware and populated by their parents and millennials, they all moved to instagram and snapchat since they can escape their parents there. Reddit is the only forum people use, though I think it's a hugbox and circlejerk. But think about the result of asking skateboarding reddit (I've never actually been to it) to come here instead, they'd say no because they can get their skateboarding and other stuff in one spot. Not that I think an SP insta would be useful, though remember how we used to have the tumblr? Also scootering is apparently the cool thing anyway. Plus most of us are different now. I've known of SP since 2006, joined in 2007, that was 12 years ago, most of us were in middle/high school and some college. It's actually strange, I'm 26 now and I've known of SP for 12 years, that's one year short of half my life. Now most people are older and out of school, apparently a lot of you in coding jobs. I'm a molecular genetics/biochemistry PhD student, so that occupies a lot of my time and doesn't really lend itself to photography. Though I did just buy an XT2, which I love. I'm glad SP is back, but it came back in a weird time. Some kind irony posting an insta clip but skateboarders are fucking ridiculous now

    Frontside Flip

    I hate that sign. Especially the fact that it has words on it. I assume that's your flash on the right too? That's not so bad, I find the sign way more distracting.

    I became a slide film whore

    I mean, I've (and likely everyone else here) been a fan of your bronica stuff since 2006 or whenever I started looking at SP and whenever you started posting. I basically bought a bronica because of your stuff These are no exception. Been following you on insta and looks you get to travel to a bunch of cool places. Also slide film for life. If I still had my bronica I'd exclusively shoot E100VS but they don't make it anymore so provia would be next choice no question.
  15. Oh wow I haven't thought of those names in forever. I remember riseagainst and bulletpimp and all that.
  16. These are just a few, there's some more on my flickr. I just got a Fuji XT2 and love it. These were all with that, and a canon fd 135mm f/3.5, except the last one which was the fuji 18-55. Old meets new, an F22 Raptor and a P51 Mustang. It's challenging to show the actual distance between these two. They're not on top of each other but they were very close for planes.

    something from back then

    Great timing on the second one. First one is a typical shot for skateboarders but I like yours.

    I bought an Fuji X-T2 on sunday. I've gone through 2 other digi cams since selling my bronica and wasn't entirely satisfied by either of them, mostly in image quality. This is easily the first camera I've enjoyed from start to end since my bronica. Granted I miss my bronica but films expensive now.

    Everything boils down to insta nowadays. Sometimes I question why bother using a dedicated camera instead of a phone if everyone only views photos on phones.

    Threat Level Awesome

    Second one is really nice. The first doesn't do it for me and for whatever reason, I hate things in the foreground so neither does the third.

    idk that sounds kind of steep for 10 years past expiration date and not in the cold. 18 rolls of 120 is like $97. BH doesn't have 220 so I can't compare that price.
  22. Amazon offers cloud computing services too. They have a lot of stuff. I have microsoft one drive through school and my desktop has windows 10 but I haven't bothered figuring out how to get it to sync correctly. I'm sure it's inanely complicated like everything micorsoft related. Plus I typically need unix based stuff for science stuff so I don't think that will sync with one drive from linux or osx. I think I'm going to get a big external and keep it in my lab, that way both buildings would have to burn down in order for me to lose everything. Heard only one horror story of a PhD student losing all his work due to data issues. Plus one drive just runs constantly and shits up my computer in general so I deleted it.

    Yeah I'm highly confused as to the orientation of the landscape in the first one. That sign on the right is especially off putting. For some reason I though I was looking down a cliff. Other two came out great too. I also think the second could use some more blacks. Just a bit less detail recovery or brightness increases in the shadows. Or possibly the lens flare kind of washed stuff out?
  24. 2meta4me plz post more underwater stuff.

    But what about goldenwub?
