Yah, I like the 1st and 4th ones best also. It looks like you're thinking about creative composure, that's good.

 

The photos you've posted, however, look overexposed. Most photographers aim for a full range of tonalities - white, black and everything inbetween. Maybe it's the scans or WalMart printing or an Fstop too open, but none of yours shots have black tones, just dark grey to washed-out white. The washed-out-look isn't bad but maybe work on some punchier contrast.

 

Also, this will be nearly irrevelant if you're moving to a D-SLR 'cause image editing programs allow you to easily tweak contrast and whitebalance.

thanks for the feedback.. and i hear what your saying about the overexposure... some of it was due to my camera, as the battery was damn near dead so the shutter was slightly slower, but some was also because of personal error..

 

im looking forward to working with color, and that should provide me with even more room for improvement haha

i usually lurk on 12oz, but i found this thread and wanted to contribute. i've been shooting for a while now, but it's just a hobby. my setup is an old canon ae-1 slr and whatever film i can get my hands on. i've also got a holga that i use from time to time. here are some relatively new shots... let me know what you think.

I'm definitely feeing your stuff so far and that first diptych is on fire.

 

I don't know what it is about the majority of people posting on here, but there are definitely common themes that are right out front for a lot of us. That's pretty cool actually considering we're all sitting/shooting in different locales. The imagined 12oz group show would be a sight....

 

 

 

*edit because i can't spell.

thanks. i'll post some other stuff soon.

 

and it is kind of strange how everyone around here kind of views their surroundings differently from the majority of the population, but similar to each other. it undoubtly has something to do with the influence of art, graffiti, skateboarding, and the other common interests a lot of people around here share. a 12oz group show would be on fire, i know that much.

and that's just a self-serving example.

 

so does this mean we're only complimenting each other because we're really into ourselves? art theorists, bring it on down. haha.
