Any good photo collection books you like?
Just found out Pixdaus went down. Damn, it was an archive of high quality photos of animals and places that had Booru-like tags.
question for b&w shooters: do you use the cameras default monochrome setting or do you extract the colors via lightroom or some other tool?
B&W is better on film, and it's easy to develop.
aye less toxic chemicals involved compared to color too right?
I'm not sure, but it would make sense. It's a simpler process.
I started developing my own color film a few weeks ago. You need three chemicals compared to two. What makes b&w easier is that the temperature doesnt need to be so exact. While color, such as C41 has to be 38 celcius with a difference in heat of +- 0.1 celcius. Its a great hobby, shooting a roll then developing it.
Because accumulated dirt over time ruins the paint job and the protective layer of your car which eventually leads to rusting. Even if you don't care how it looks, you should still wash it. It's basic maintenance.
Now you know.
Maybe if you live in some humid intemperate climate. Pretty sure dirt around here won't do anything to it.
You're wrong. It definitely will in time, but that's off-topic. Not my vehicle anyway.
dirt is just an extra layer of paint. like plaque buildup on teeth it adds another layer of protection
THAT'S why it looks so much more impressive than usual!
cool little creature. I have a macrophotographic lens but I think I'll get a microscope or something so I can go smaller.
You would have a blast with this guy. It was at that translucid stage and I could see all the organs moving in there. It didn't came out in the picture at all. It was quite a challenge to get even these done. All I have is an old smartphone and a magnifying glass. It was around half cm long.
Is that RPGmaker? I like that cat, it would be cool if his eyes glowed in the dark>>60152
Is that a.. a ステーキケーキ??? What dark sorcery do I have to cast on my remaining living relatives for them to start cooking me these one a year?
Yeah, I'm working on a game.
My mom made this cat. It's made of two types of clay, one for the body and one for the eyes.
What's the point of photorealistic painting anymore if you can just take pictures?
from afar they are no different really, but a painting has texture and if you get very close it is often messy and chaotic which is cool
The same "points" there are in any creative or reproductive artistic endeavor. The act of painting still-life or portraits benefits the artist and end customer in ways photos can not. It's fun to paint anything, it's a fair challenge to reproduce a real thing accurately, skills learned from reproducing something can be applied to creative tasks, and the end product has a material presence that many people value.

Namely that the human reproduction of reality and the camera's aren't the same, even when one can be substituted for another. Witness testimony is notoriously inaccurate, as the mind will fill in a gun just from the gesture of pulling a gun. All vision, to us, is filled with such gestures.
The camera simply emulates the human eye, which has little to do with perceiving reality. We know this because other animals employ different configurations of eyes, or no eyes at all.
You can videotape yourself doing photorealistic paintings. That video would in itself be a very valuable piece of art, and the painting almost only being a leftover relic of it.

Would be more sought after as an instruction tool for other artists.
Photorealistic painting and drawing is a tiny niche. Realism is not synonymous with photorealism.
I was just reading a article on hyperrealism including looking at the art of the most renound artist in the style.
I definitely prefer it over standard photorealism even if I am not a fan of the politics behind many of the works.

it's literally the same shit
Photo was taken in Kharkiv Eko-Park. A few missiles just landed there today. Some animals were injured. The monkey place was mentioned to be broken but no news on its inhabitants. Hopefully this fella is OK.
photography itself is art and the images depend on lens etc. Even if you see it as a type of lens it is art that cant be created any other way
Keep the photos going my man
Cans are dope as fuck. I need a can zone at my house
There is a wagie in each of these windows.
some really wonderful stuff in this thread
Agreed, I never thought of photography as something I could get into, I'm more of a videographer but this thread makes me want to take photos
where do sites obtain vintage japanese photographs? is there some central archiver of this stuff? maybe japanese libraries?
