    Sucks. On the plus side, class 10 cards are cheaper than ever. Just picked up an 8gb for 15 bucks.

    Going to take a break for a few days. A super close friend just took his own life and I need some time away from everything. Will post some recent photos when I return.

    For those of you that have used 28 days later as a user, do you think its approval before posted system works? Took a few days for my post to come up, and when it did it had a few winks added in and this at the end too.

    DRAINS that is all
    I certainly wasn't drunk posting that, what gives!

    Now that I have film and a safe place to learn how to develop/process, I have no idea what to take pictures of. I don't like taking my camera everywhere because I love it too much. Also I've been going through the creative forum and feel that every time I look through my view-finder something is wrong.
    Argh.

    i don't think i need class 10, i don't do much burst photography. i think my previous card was class 8 and it was plenty fast for me. i'm just using a 2gb for now that i've had for a couple years, it seems to be fine i'll just have to dump more often

    and ohfoohy, sorry for your loss. if you need someone to talk to i'm here for you.

    There seems to be a completely new type of camera.
    It's the Lycra Lightfield Cam.
    I don't know how it really works but it seems rahter than focussing the light, it captures the light-rays through several layers.

    This enables you to change focus of a picture AFTERWARDS, in pp.

    Seems like the quality is pretty shit and it only works with Apple PCs but the concept is pretty awesome.

    I currently have a Canon 100-400 lens sitting right next to me. I'm borrowing it because my teacher said I should so yeah. He also said to borrow the Canon 90-300mm. So I also did that.
    Don't know why

    Probably maybe going to sneak my camera out of the house and go with some skater classmates to a park tomorrow. :D

    Was there anything important in it?
    I've taken to removing the card and downloading the images from there, because plugging the camera to the computer seems to drain the living shit out of the battery (wtf)

    I did a few shots inspired by him actually.

    Not a 100% pleased with them, and it's on Facebook, so shit quality:







    He doesn't use a ring flash though, he uses two strip lights.

    Just fixed my bike, and I just moved. I think it's time to start taking photos again. I haven't posted in this section in months

    Also, I want to get all my film developed, and there's not a single place around that will do it in the store. Every store sends it out to a lab, so I figured I could cut costs by sending it to a lab myself. I was looking at this pricing chart...

    http://www.swanphotolabs.com/swan08/..._35mm_form.pdf

    "Index Print + Sleeved Negatives ...................... FREE"

    Confused. So, I'm guessing that comes with any other choices. I really don't want a CD.

    Does anyone know a good lab to use?

    Is there anyone near London who I can borrow a flash gun off to use on Wednesday 11th? I need to desperately for some portfolio work.

    Edited:

    Doesn't even need to be a good one, heck I'd use one of those cheap Jessops flash guns if anyone has one.

    that reminds me of the swimming scenes in the movie blue, which i mean in the absolute best way possible.

    also at goodwill today i found (what looked about) a half used roll of porta 400 black and white film (processes c-41). i can't find anywhere that says when it was made from, so it could come out pretty weird. i'm excited to shoot it.

    The DSLR is a bit of a movie-makers favourite of late. Problem is, it doesn’t shoot in a format quite right for cinema. To fix this, Robinson Hope Creative, a photographer and film-maker, has put together a special anamorphic lens, which is around twice as wide as any other wide-angle lens on the market, with no distortion.The f2.8 lens is made out of a smash resistant polymer and is said to hit the market at less than $600.

    Question for my fellow videographers. What do you guys recommend for recording audio? I'm making a short film and was wondering what wold be best? Shotgun mic or a boom mic or anything else? Also, I need a lens. I was leaning towards the canon 50mm 1.4 but with a cropped sensor, I may want like a sigma 35mm. (I know I've brought that up several times now, but I'm still not 100%)

    So as of right now to save money I'm scanning the prints I make, and copying those into digital form. What settings should I set the scanner for? Currently it's set for 1200 dpi, as a jpeg.

    Generally you want it set to a multiple of the scanner's native resolution. I scan as .tiff

    My mother told me last night that one of the photos in our house was taken with a panographic camera. It should still be in the house, and while searching for it I found a Hanimex Praktica novaI. The shutter button is in an interesting place, and the case smells like a dentists office. Still works, and it already had 8 pictures on the roll of film. Not posting in gear because I probably won't use it.

    Ah, I love the smell of freshly printed boarding passes. Tomorrow I leave for my week long trip across Italy, Austria and Germany. I'll be visiting Milan, Vicenza, Venice, Verona, Salzburg, Garmisch, and Munich. Expect a ton of photos once I get back.
