8:25 pm - It is complete

I've been working on this "series" for a while now simply because the subject in the middle was so elusive... But now it's done.

9:51 pm - Newer, easier hosting

Due to a newly found ability to make web-pages that include file upload capability, I have created a page just for uploading images to my server so people can post them here :)

If interested go to http://theflatearth.whitefoxden.net where you will find a link to the actual upload page, and you will be directed to e-mail me to attain a username and password so you can access the actual upload page (a little security measuer so I don't end up hosting every picture on the internet).

gypsylou I have e-mailed you instructions on how to access the page, as well as a user name and password.

And just because I haven't posted any pics in a while:

3:56 pm - Backdrops

After the recent discution having to do with backdrops, I've been looking at them on ebay, and have found several of them for under $40. But they are all around 6 feet/9 feet. That seams a little small to me. For those that have used backgrounds, is 6/9 big enough to be functional?

10:26 am - Photo Shoots...

The biggest drawback to a couple of the photoshoots I currently want to do right now is finding locations.

Shoot 1: This is a shoot having to do with Minneapolis landmarks, I've already got a couple places on my list, such as the sculpture garden, but would like sugestions on other landmarks.

Shoot2: Goth photo shoot. I need a suitably Gothy place, some where in Minneapolis, where people either wont notice or wont mind me doing a photoshoot with several woman wearing goth clothing.

Any sugestions on locations would be greatly appreciated.

3:36 pm - So, it can work...

On a really hot day, using a 4 second exposure, and a fully open apature, I can get this:

10:11 am - Curiosity question

So, we're not suposed to post self portrats here. Considering the nature of other LJ photography comunities this makes sence to most of us. However, so far I've only ever known 1 photographer (that would be laserbitch) that acctually enjoyed posing for photos. Almost all the photographers I've know greatly prefured to be behind the camera rather than in front of it. Most of the serious photographs I've met don't like having their picture taken, and self protrates seem almost silly.

So what have the rest of you experienced with this? How many of you enjoy being on either side of the camera, and how many of you would just as soon keep the lense pointed away from you?

9:18 am - Infrared Digital Photography

Well... I got my infrared filter yesterday and tried it out. Since there are no pictures with this post, you can guess it didn't really work. The images were just too dark. I set the exposure to 8 seconds (as high as my camera will go) with the apature fully open, and they still came out very dark. I've seen a couple digital camera's on the internet that are suposed to be very good for infrared photography, but the minimum prince is around $600, and a decent one is about $1000.

Oh well...

12:54 pm - IR digital photography

I broke down today and bought an IR pass filter today off of ebay for $35, after shipping and mounting it for use of my camera (it's a 44mm piece of IR filter glass with no mounting hardware attached) it'll run me around $47. That's $10 cheeper than anywhere else I've seen them. There went this weeks over time. I should have it ready for camping next weekend. I'm a little worried about how well it'll work because I'll have to use shutter speads slower than 60 to make it work, needless to say there is a lot of room for bluring.

With any luck, you'll see the results in a little over a week.

I would apreciate any suggestions or tips that anyone has about IR photography.

I took this shot last August while walking home from work. My camera is a Sony Mavica FD95. At this point I work exclusively with digital media.

My photography background starts with my grandfather who became a photographer after WWII, and continued it for the rest of his life. In my early teens I would go with him to weddings and other shoots to hold lights and reflectors for him. I also took classes in high school.

My current photographic "goals" are to explore digital infrared photography, and to better understand how to make poses look more natural.
