interesting tidbit on the first one I shot that looked like a van gogh sky...that clear circlish spot on the top was a tornado beginning to form. I just watched it for a bit and then ran and grabbed the camera.

Trends are kinda dangerous, you can see it here to on a smaller scale...there are 12oz trends on photography, abandoned houses, traffic at night, trains...

 

These are both on the nose. This is exactly WHY we post though. This is exactly why we show other people our works. If we didn't they'd all be sitting in our drawers or our photos seem like an awful waste of 1's and 0's on our computers.

:o

 

Trends help in a way. It helps us find out what's better to take pictures of. It also helps us see what otherwise we may have never looked at before. Take jbrshmonster's pic with the suspended flowers... An ordinary person walking down the street would see this in a display window and blown it off. Jbrshmonster saw it as an opportunity for a great photo. And that's what he got!

 

Back to the trends. So what if EVERYONE has taken a picture of train-tracks. Boo fucking hoo. Now look at my photo. It was a complete mistake. My professor said "Alan, you know that photos of tracks are overdone. Why not try just different angles, etc." I took her advice. This photo wasn't part of the paln though. A mistake can be a blessing. Then again I woked on that photo for HOURS in the lab trying to get it perfect. Now, if my professor had not known that, I wouldn't have won the award.

 

TD, I had never heard of those photographers until you mentioned them. You are right, they are in two seperate worlds, BUT they are somewhat similar. They just seem to capture real life.. which most people are afraid to show.

 

Good works everyone... Keep them coming.

yeah...i really dont remember writing my last post....but yeah, the fundamental difference between nan goldin and ryan mcginley (in my opinion...) is that goldins work is more of a "fly on the wall" type deal. whereas mcginleys are very "involved" type photos. neither one is my personal thing really to be honest with you. alot of mcginleys work is sort of pretentious i think in the way that he's like "wow, im gay, look at how gay my friends and i are. oh yeah, we're gay.". i mean....yeah, thats you. great. but like, just because your gay and can shoot photos of your gay friends doesnt particularly make you deserve any sort of special merit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

i anxiously await someone to misinterpret that whole statement. awesome.

just curious what some of you think about b&w...

my op: b&w is too easy. you can take a shot of

something that would be completely subpar using

color film, take the exact same shot in b&w and

blammo, you have a 1st prize shot. i'm exaggerating

a little, but i feel personally that color is much more

challenging. i usually reserve opinions on a photographers

skill until i've seen color shots.

Very true. Color is harder to display. SteveAustin and jbrshmonster take the cake though.

 

I am a BIG fan of black & white. I'm a projectionist and I love B&W films. I think color shots are so cliche nowadays. Anyone can take a color photograph, but real photographers can take BETTER black and white photos. Take ese's night shots on page 2. Fucking awesome. It's an easy technique too, but it probably looks better in blakc and white than color.

 

I have very few color photos.

 

Here's two by me:

I also love B&W. Its just more expressive to me. With all the disposables and what not...color almost seems overdone. I've seen alot of really shitty b&ws though. it has to have the high contrast.

 

weird thing is...my color work tends to turn out so much better than my black and whites. I just don't get it.

 

thanks rage....
