Another (even more) shitty scan lol. Impatient to get to the uni scanner :P gold gloves heil yeah!
This is actually my attempt at a portrayal of Greek mythology god Narcissus, and the iconic image of him gazing in adoration into his reflection in the river for eternity.
It’s part of a greater series on my course.
Bloody difficult to get these self-portraits on a Mamiya RB67 medium format camera so I did pretty well managing this much - there’s actually an air cable release in my left hand in the shot which I was squeezing the life out of to make it press the shutter button. I think my eyes are closed here either fully or partially, resulting from the flash

A crappy scan I made of my RB67 medium format photo I got developed today. Framing compositions in that thing is difficult. “Scanned” up with my DSLR camera and the 120mm negative sitting in front of my white laptop screen - the backlight had those lines on it you get from photos of tv screens

Anonymous asked: I like your eye and know you're just experimenting right now, but keep working. One thing that I would like to comment on ... is your comments. You sometimes say things "I like this for some reason but don't know why" or "I don't know why but this is interesting." Either you DO know what attracts you and just have trouble putting it into words or you should look closer and think about why it does attract you. It could really help you progress and grow and develop your own style to understand it.
Thank you! I think my course should help with that. My work is fairly rough at the moment, for instance at the moment I’ve been grappling with how to use my new extension tubes for macro photography so that’s what the recent pictures of creepy-looking dilapidated tiny figures are about (there is a huge difference with how the camera/lens works to photograph with the tubes on!, I might post a small video I took while focusing to show it)

Anyway I’m pretty amped about my new assignments and interested to see where my studies take me!
The photo was a little lacking so I faked some sort of warp lens to save it

Using my macro extension tubes again. Sweet turtle in the background!

Kinda like this idk why. Think it makes me think of Brad Carlile or the redlight district. The jpeg compression makes it get weird looking; perhaps I should look into switching to a high-res blog theme..

Lola - weird compression effects from jpeg resizing

Not great I know but I’m getting to know my new camera more and experimenting a lot on some probably boring subjects.
Posting what I love, though, so I feel the soft focus in most of the photo lends to a warm loving feeling

My morning needs. (think this was actually at 6:54pm though so I guess I’m cheating :P)
Espresso coffee I make every (provided coffee is in stock) day in our pair of sweet little blue and pink espresso cups from the IKO IKO shop :)

JPEG compression sure made it look grainier. But 5mb file size on all my edited photos vs. 40mb size the png or tiff formats provide is a saver for my 2 terabyte external hard-drive.
