so I was complaining to somebody at a party the other day about not having space in my apartment to set up a darkroom.
then, the person blew my fucking mind and made me realize I don't need a room to use as my darkroom, just turn the lights out in my apartment
DUH... FUCK why didn't I think of this?

ak: have you tried that lightmeter, and is that shit accurate? It'd be great not to have to use my digi to polaroid shots when using my meterless bronica.
also, so pissed, my m6 is locked up in the post office (1 block away) and I can't get to it until tomorrow after work.

.A.K.4.7.
11-22-2010, 09:01 PM
It's accurate for day to day use, for those times when you just can't guess the light and you want to meter off your palm. I wouldn't use it in the studio or with slide film though.
Definitely worth it, and it's free!

Same thing happened when I got my M6... customs had it locked up and I had to dish out another 200$ or some shit to get it. And it was all the way out at the airport. Pussyholes.


So I'm bidding on an M4-P just because it's got minutes to go and its fucking cheap.
I'll just sell my CL to pay for it. Haha. Ebay is bad for me...

I do my film in a dark room. My advice is just don't be lazy with the temperature and the time that you expose the film to the chemistry. 1 degree too cold or too warm, 10 seconds off here and there, and it will show in your film. Also agitate for the first 30 sec. then 10 seconds at every min. Be consistent and youll be good!

Monkey, I had the same problem with my film, but it was several white lines. It might be the same problem: when you're rewinding the film, try to do it more smoothly, because if the film gets damaged it will distort the picture. Might be that, just form personal experience!

Also, VERY nice colors, which film are you using buddy?

.A.K.4.7.
11-25-2010, 06:30 PM
Nah, your white lines will be light leaks. Unsure what black lines mean though... thats real weird.

kmcdon3960
11-25-2010, 09:05 PM
i also have no idea what the black lines are. in the past when I've damaged my film it's come up as white lines. channachanna: are you developing b+w or color? I know color is super-sensitive, but I usually just do my shit at room temperature (which I guess is pretty close to where the film's supposed to develop at) and it comes out fine. b+w though.

Already looked at the Pentax k-x and Nikon D3000

No no, half of all leicas are currently IN japan, not made there.

Leicas are all made either in Germany or weirdly canada for a period in the early 80's.

Japanese cunts are badass. They know what's dope. I always notice the only people on the street that notice I have a leica are japanese/asian.

Japanese cunt is great

@Mrjesusreborn check out the Canon T2i, I would compare that to the D3000.

@Ak I was going to suggest that when I first checked out your site. It looks way cleaner now and is easier to view.

@J.Channa I grinded my dick off the other day on some japanese girl at a club. I love when they attempt to speak English too.

You should try get a shot where she isn't posing... and she is just laughing or smiling naturally. always have camera near your eye and keep snapping even when she's not ready... the best shots are ALWAYS the candid ones between posing...

Ironically this is when she isn't posing. It's my little sister who is in high school so she was being super awkward and annoying so these were the few times she didn't know I was taking the picture right then. Hopefully, I will eventually get some photogenic girls who Im not related to so I can get some good pics. Also, a different lens. This was a 18-55 so..More to come!

it will, kinda
the bottom 4 is with the 18-55 kit.
the top 3 is with the sigma 17-70mm 2.8-4

but yea, i agree some of the kit lens shots are a bit blurry, i still find the iq generally more pleasing with the sigma


the gf again
iso 1600 or 800 with the 50 1.8 i believe (and yes i kept alot of the noise)

The only time the 18-55 will suffer is shooting at the longer end in low light.
Other than that it is as sharp as a razor... What exactly is wrong with it?

yup, both you guys prettymuch summed it up for me
i love low light+ no flash photography so i really am a sucker for faster lens
even though my sigma isnt any faster, it still helps.
i did buy it solely to replace my kit...otherwise, i would have gone for a wide prime

Here is a document I now live by, as I'm sick of having work printed without pay or name recognition.
I suggest you find a document that abides by your countries law and use it FOR EVERY SERIOUS JOB. Not only does it protect you and your interests, but it also puts the fear or professionalism into your client, it shows you mean business and aren't to be fucked with.

http://www.aipa.org.nz/html/blob.php/AIPA+%282006%29+-+Adobe+Acrobat+PDF?document=2601&elementId=11766&attach=true

Read part 4.2, and part 6. :):):):)

It is important to show your clients documents like this AND GET THEM TO SIGN IT. Once you have, you have real legal power if they try to fuck you over, which they definitely will.

@Ak I really love that second to last one in "Fashion"

@Channa those are all really nice. Maybe a stupid question but are those film?

Today was fucking weird. I found an old burned down brick factory in this closed off area. I went under the barb wire fence and snapped some shots. After about 30 minutes there I see two meaty pitbulls running at me. I immediately thought "fuck my life" but then I turned around and sprinted to and climbed up this shed so I could get be out of bites way. Then I saw a gnarly little mexican guy with a golf club walk up and look up at me. He told me he should have me arrested and wouldn't let me leave unless I "deleted all the pictures." My initial reaction was to say "Fuck you" and punch him. Then I remembered the 9 iron and putbulls. I then erased all of the pictures and hopped down from the shed.

I got bit in the chest last month by a german sheperd, you DO NOT want that to happen to you. The dog mace probably wouldn't have saved me in that situation, but I would have felt better knowing that I burned that piece of shit's eyeballs out of it's head.

AK, I got that jupiter-8 in the mail today. Got the test roll hanging up in the bathroom to dry. Nothing special on it, but it seems like the focus might be off. Basically a test roll to make sure the focus is good, because if it is I'll be taking it on a shoot this weekend for some band's album or something. Feels great actually using this thing, the meter is perfect, and it's way easier to use then the electro.

Loading film is a pain in the ass, though.

Loading film gets easier with practise. I much prefer it to loading up SLR's now. EVeryone has their own technique to it.

Jupiters have great optics, but terrible build quality. Yours may just be a dud.

true, but i dont think i really have enough to get what i really want. i can get a d300s but i wanted a d700. i know saving money makes sense but it's a gift from my mom and she likes to have actual things not money to give me. new flash shit would be cool. or a diff focal length. but i love my car too. being a 2010 i have a lot of time to spend with it haha

being from the north, i say get the remote starter...its such a bitch to get in your car and still having to wait for it to heat up.

12-08-2010, 06:26 PM
I feel kind of limited by the d40. i would like to not have to use af-s lenses and have a bit better iso range. higher frame rate would be cool as i might get into paintball photography a bit. i think im gonna hold out on the camera at least until january and get a sb-900 or 2 vivitar 285s, a new strap or bag, light stands, a meter, a softbox and a lens probably. idk what lens to get though. i have my 35 1.8 and its all i really use. if i need to get wider, i have the kit lens and i have a 55-200.

i have seen his stuff and it's awesome. but we do different things i guess. idk i guess im just bored with the camera. i decided to just get a lens and lighting equipment for now. but i cannot decide on a lens at all. i have the kit lens, 55-200 (never use it), and the 35 1.8. im not sure what i should go for next. i dont think i would use a fisheye a lot. but it might be worth having one for shows.

edit- here's what im asking for (i think) let me know if any of its junk

sigma 10mm f2.8 hsm lens
2 vivitar 285hv flashes
umbrella
2 light stands
2 receivers for my trigger
reflector holder
gel kit
gray card

good call upstate, unless you're getting paid to take pics every day, there's no point in upgrading your body. Glass is everything, lighting is everything.
Investing in lenses and lighting is good because you can keep that stuff when you do need to upgrade or replace your body.

Also, is the sigma a fisheye or no? you're gonna love 10mm either way.

tonight I tried to take a candid pic of santa claus while he was waving to some people, but as soon as I snapped it, this fucking guy walked right infront of my camera and I let out a pretty loud "god damnit." but, santa was kind enough to do the exact same pose for me to get the pic. It probably isn't going to be as good as it could be if I got it right the first time, though.

Lets talk about funny photo stories/mishaps

UpstateHate585
12-08-2010, 10:01 PM
yeah its a fisheye. i only hope i dont regret getting a dx lens. i dont think im gonna go full frame but i might eventually. i think the d300s is my next body though. but lighting and glass will outlast bodies.

kmcdon3960
12-08-2010, 10:39 PM
you wont. my sigma 10-20 is a 'dx' (efs because it's canon), but it mounts up to my film body. it doesn't cover the whole frame, but that's easily corrected by cropping out. I'm also pretty sure that on a nikon DX camera it'll automatically know it's a dx lens and crop accordingly.

You don't need to worry about it because I doubt you're going FF anytime soon.
you need to stop worrying about what body to get next and shoot until you're d40 breaks

.A.K.4.7.
12-08-2010, 11:26 PM
Yep. I've still got my 10.5 fisheye DX and use it on my D3s fine. (D3s crops the viewfinder for you, creates a black box around the image, D700's only give you a lame border outline thing) Only 6mp though but who gives a fuck 6mp is heaps pixels.................:cool:

I hate full frame. I wish I could buy great lenses like tokina 11-16's etc for such good prices. FX sucks really. I hate my D3s. It stays home all day. Way too big to take out day to day. If I could I'd sell it tomorrow and buy an M9. But work requires it................. gay

One thing that is great though is that I can effectively increase the length of my long lenses incase I need to get in closer, for example, putting my 85mm on DX mode in the camera turns it into a 130mm approx... since I don't have a 70-200 it's very helpful at times.

i dont see how you are limited by the d40...the only difference is the 100 iso being the slowest speed over your 200....i spose the sensor is slightly different....i know the d40x has the same sensor as the d80....as i said upgrade from your d40 to the d40x if anything....i mean i shoot fully manual all the time so maybe thats why i dont feel im limited...its all the people who use auto modes who feel a camera limits them.....
did you get that nikon 35mm which is af-s? as i am going to purchase it in the next month...ive inherited 1k and im gonna get that and then a few bits for my car as my civic needs clearing up and some new cams XD
but yer definatley a winner to go with some flashes, and a softbox etc...im looking into getting some big strobes and a portable power pack for car shoots etc...hoping it will be worth it....

also what do you mean we shoot different things? I think ive given most things a go with photogprahy, portraits, automotive shit, trackdays, landscapes, city shit...street photography....done music/gigs events etc...i cant think of one aspect of photography the d40x hasnt done whilst in my hands....

I dont remember seeing any of that stuff. I shoot manual too. It's a great camera, but idk, i guess im just getting the itch for a new camera. same thing happens to me with instruments. I wanna get into more automotive stuff and portraits/promos. It would be nice to have the ability to print larger. and the d300s has a nice frame rate, can perform better at higher iso and had video ( i know im gonna catch shit for that but its nice to have) im investing in glass and lights for the moment though

and the 35 is the af-s i love it.

Got my remote start. shit was 750 bux. got it for 280. sick. then i ordered the sigma 10mm 2.8 fisheye, a vivitar 285hv with stand and a receiver for my trigger. so pumped.

just told a kids gf her pics were shit and he freaked out saying (she's poor and only has a d3000) lol he told me to be gentle with her cuz shes thinking of quitting photog even tho i guess shes been doing it for 5 years. Her pics look like any other scene kid who got a dslrs pics lol. i told her why they sucked (she shoots in auto) but she didnt like it haha.

Noob question of the day: are there a lot of differences between SLR and DSLR cameras? As far as camera functions and results goes? I understand the developmental process and post editing differs, but Im considering minoring in photography as I do a lot of work with raster graphics and use HD-DSLR video in my work. Im just hoping I won't be out of my league if I take the courses.

SLR stands for SINGLE LENS REFLEX. DSLR stands for DIGITAL SINGLE LENS REFLEX.

They are the type of camera where you look through the lens via a mirror and a viewfinder.
They are different to, say, a rangefinder, where you do not look through the lens, but through a seperate viewfinder.

The only differences between SLR's and DSLR's would be between particular models of camera, not the type of camera overall.
You can buy say, a film Nikon F6 that is as sophisticated as my D3 but one is an SLR and the other is a DSLR.

I knew how to use manual I just never used it fluidly as I do now.
I learnt alot from my Leicas about light and exposure.

As much as i like SLR's the idea of a rangefinder with a superfast lens is growing on me. You got the Sickest stuff AK.

I dig the 35 F1.2....

Those zeiss's were damn good though.

12-15-2010, 06:48 PM
right on. I've pretty much decided on the zeiss 35/2 and CV 50/1.1 when I get my tax check
did you specify the knob rewind on the mp? that looks like a real pain in the ass.

12-15-2010, 06:53 PM
MP's just come like that. I actually prefer the look of it. Plus it stays still doesn't wiggly and making clicking noises and doesn't rub against the strap when your carrying it.

You can buy these to make it easier. But it's not that difficult. Just annoying if you're changing film in a real hurry.

Also, if I were you, I'd save the 50 1.1 and invest in a version 2 summilux... you gotta own atleast ONE leica lens to go with your leica camera. Whats the point otherwise?

those lenses are the same lens optically, but, one of them has more aperture blades than the other (I think,) and the focussing mechanics are different (I think.)

I have the black one and it's pretty decent, but it doesn't focus properly on my leica, so I have to use it stopped down and on the farther half of the focus.

If you can find one on ebay for cheaper I'd get it, I think I paid something like $30 for mine.
