Those flowers are the round-lobed hepatica. They are very pretty. They were asleep that day, though; there was not much sun and it was quite chilly.


Interesting..It's a nice photo.
Would it be inconvenient to photograph them again when they are awake?
I'm curious to see the response to nicer weather.


apocalypticon,

Did you get my u2u, my rambling u2u about resolution and stuff?
and most impotantly, did I make any sense?

spacedout...yes I did, and I was quite thankful, I just haven't had the time to work through it with my photos yet.

I sent a u2u to you thanking you, but it apparently didn't get there...which probably explains why one I sent to BenevolentHeretic didn't arrive, either.

Hmmmmm.......it was right about the time they were making these new changes on the board, so that probably had something to do with it.

Yes, I appreciate the critique, 'cause I actually want to get some understanding of photography...for me the first thing to acquire, equipment-wise, is a small tripod, 'cause my hands get pretty shaky sometimes...

Yes, I can take another picture of the same bunch this weekend. I'd like to get some shots of them open. Some of them have a pinkish tinge... others are snow white... and the very rare ones? They have a blue tinge.

Here's some more from that day:


This is the same type of flower...



This is called a dog-tooth violet or trout lily...

Nice photos, everyone.

I just temporarily turned my digital camera into a pinhole camera (April 30 this year is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day) and have been playing around with that. I finally got a hole fine enough to get things fairly sharp, and I'm practicing to take a photo on Sunday for the pinhole page.

Here are a few I've taken so far that turned out nicely.







And here's a page for those who have a digital SLR and want to try the conversion. There isn't any real risk, other than the chance of dust getting in when you set it up. But that's the same as when you swap lenses, really. Link

LC, I know a guy who drills a hole into wood, then lays thin foil over it, and then punches it with a fine needle, to get the pin-hole. Those shots you got came out great!

Thanks. I'd like to try making a real pinhole camera as well, but I'll have to get all the stuff for it. It's been a while since I've done stuff in a real darkroom. Some of the pinhole photos in the pinhole day galleries are fantastic...

Pinhole cameras must be getting popular, because I've seen "lenses" that are pre-made attachable pinholes.

Perhaps its part of the counter-reaction to digital photography, along with people seeking out "crappy" cameras that give inconsistent results, makes it more 'intereting'. I also know a guy who's doing, of all things, Tintyping, with glass and metal!

Remember these type of cameras? It was hard to see which side of the camera was pointing forwards. Very frustrating when you got your developed film back and it turned out to be 24 or 36 pictures of an eye...

Incredible ant shot space! I haven't had much luck with those yet - Very hard to focus properly without a macro lens....What kind of lens were you using there?!

Ooohh....HAHA! My parents used to have one of those - I remember that problem all too well Hellmutt!


I've always been fascinated with the concept of pinhole photography....I've never tried it though...Checking out that link you provided LC, I think I may give it a shot though! I'll have to order a new frame cover, but what's that? Like a whole dollar??

The infinite DOF from something that simple is what truly makes it worth while....It sure beats breaking out a calculator and trying to figure out where the hyperfocal plane is....

With such a small aperture, it really can help to let you know when your camera is due for a cleaning! Better yet, I actually like the small specks of dust, to a certain degree, as it adds character to the shot...

Anyone familiar with the Copper Hill Method? I'm a do-it-yourselfer kind of person, and I think so long as you pay close attention to everything you do, you can't go wrong with this method...

I’ll update this post in just a few minutes with a few recent photos…

Edit:
Here are two shots from yesterday....

I wonder if that flower in the bottom righthand corner is related to the species you photographed Jamesmickael?


I think the chords sneaking out of the shadows here really reminded me of the Matrix (er...the original, that is)



A little photoshopping has been done in this image, but mostly just a couple quick masks....Nothing major...

Washington, D.C. ...looking up into the Capitol dome last Fall...no matter how you feel about government, or the success or failure of any particular administration, the capitol area has some beautiful sights...I think it was pretty much like going through the looking glass, for me...just don't drink the kool aid




Thank you Enron and spacedout, for your help via board and u2u.


I should be able to re-post a couple of pictures a bit larger now...

When I reread this thread, I was somewhat relieved to see that photoshopping, to a degree, is ok...I do adjust things, at times...should I be pointing out what I have done to each photo?

I also realized that there are some truly beautiful shots from the very start of this thread...

Enron,

I do believe I saw some pictures of (your?) food creations earlier in the thread, so I took this at work the other day...thought you might get a kick out of it...


We have had twice our normal rainfall this season; it just stopped last week, so the flowers and such aren't quite as developed as usual for this time of year.



3 month waiting list for a reservation...

southern Oregon coast...the day was absolutely gorgeous...



The air was warm...and that water is cold...

How cool is that! Thanks!


So do you work there?!?!

Thomas Keller is my culinary hero....The guy is the Ang Lee of the culinary world, so to speak...

I'm still very much into the culinary arts, just no longer at the professional level - I still have those big dreams of working in a kitchen of that magnitude some day...But hell...I'd settle for just eating there!


For a brief time after high school and early into college I was working toward that dream, and did a damn fine job of almost making it happen....But there's a hidden lifestlye in that field of work that few people see - It swallowed me up and spit me out...Still plenty of time to get back into it though - It's like riding a bike....

As long as I'm doing something with my hands, at any rate!

Enough of that sob story though


Very cool!

And my final contribution for the evening...something just for all the Masonic/NWO/Illuminati conspiracy devotees among us...



And with that, I bid you all...good night.

Yes...but not in the way you are thinking Enron...I am a supervisor for a painting company which, for the last 8 yrs., has handled all the painting at Keller's place.

We just finished a major remodel of the restaurant and offices; and right now we are in the process of finishing a complete remodel on his house, which is next door.

I'll post a couple of pics next week, when I go back to work.

I think I know what you mean about the "culinary arts". Thomas is actually a pretty nice guy when you talk with him...but the attitude among all the folks working there is definitely...does ego-centric and hyper-competitive sound about right? Not to mention, well...attitude... .

Wow - If the company you work for is based out of Nappa Valley, I can only begin to imagine the kinds of places you get to see the inside of! Much less, contributing to their existing beauty - Very interesting line of work! Just keep that paint of your camera so you can keep posting these wonderful photos!

I know it all too well....Ego is the name of the game for many of the industry professionals...

The same can be said for many of the top dogs in their field - Photography is certainly no sloucher in that department! But culinary is a beast of its own....With an extra side-order of rampant sex and drugs...



Ohhh....Am I supposed to be posting photos in this thread??!


Bad Enron...Bad!

Yeah,
Post some photos of that culinary beast.

Apocalypton,
That shot of the capitol is awesome. a great angle, with the curvatures.

Enron,
The ant photo, was taken in macron mode on my sony. So I just have the one lens.
It's a honker of a lens though!

Thats a pretty cool shot of the lights..How did you keep them from blooming on your ccd? Filter?
