Still

I have enjoyed scanning in images from my last trip west. The black and white ones were never made into prints because I still have yet to build up my darkroom plans and its nice to see them bigger than the contact sheet. The first couple here I cropped down to the image but I sort of like the look of the films edges in the photo as you can see in the later ones here. I have plenty more and will most likely be seeding them into flickr with time but I thought I would share here. I found some program called VueScan that supposedly can make better scans than my default scanning stuff from Epson but I have yet to try it out so well see how that goes. At any rate, enjoy the photos, I will try and get a couple new desktops up this week.

South Of

Somewhere south of Monument Valley, scanned it in with this new scanner and its getting me excited to have a way to get my film images scanned better than I have been with my busted, dusty old scanners. The shot was originally pretty badly over exposed and a tad bit out of focus so I brought down the darks quite a bit and it added to that rough look that you are seeing. Just thought I would share.

Nothing too fancy but I thought rather than continue to wait for some magical large sum of money to fall in my lap to buy a more elaborate negative scanner I would get something within a modest price range. Already from the few negatives I have run through it I am really very happy with the results and will suit my needs perfectly. Maybe that portfolio site I have been looking to put together will finally see the light of day.

The End Of Trying

Named from a song by Dakota Suite. There was no good reason for the name though. This was shot with my Canon 50mm 1.2L only to get the macro I took the lens off the camera, flipped it around backwards and held it against the camera body to shoot and focused simply by moving the camera. Its really tricky to do it though because the DOF is really really shallow. I have done this before with mixed results. This is most likely the last of my new lake desktops but hopefully I will keep shooting around with the 5D and continue looking for new images for everyone. I may or may not have a shot to use from my week working sound at a stage in a fair/carnival last week.

Casting Shadows

I realize the frequency of posting desktops around here has gotten slim as of late and I have wanted to get new ones up for a while now so I decided to do something about it. Readers have always seemed to enjoy it when I shoot things in nature so I took a few hours and went out to my favorite spot at a lake nearby to shoot some photos for new desktops. I ended up with a handful of new images that I will start adding hopefully a day at a time for a few days here until I run out. Hopefully everyone will find something they like in the mix.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
