Glad to see these old pulitzker photos in the public domain.
Well I wanted to joint ours down here in Fort Myers, but everyone is taking color digi shots and everyone e-mails their work for the next meeting and then we look on a screen and see what there is. I still am not sure I want to join since it seems everyone has gone digi. Much easier when everyone take sunsets and bird pictures. pretty boring, no creativity. which is where I see the digi amateur going. The day of going to the club and using the darkroom or showing your mounted work and having people actually touch the board and print, then making commits are a long forgotten past I guess. Lets just Power Point our lives away. I wanted to send a P/P print after scanning and see what stupid comments would be made. Like why are you wasting your time doing that, when it can be done in Photoshop. Daaaaaa.
Hmmmmm... I had a couple people confuse my Chrome Bronica ETR and S to a Hassy but never my LF. Go Figure.
Glad you're enjoying them. I'm having fun learning about each photograph and the people behind it.
I so appreciate these.
Another great one. Take your time and get these posted as you can. I really appreciate your efforts
I used to work in one too. We weren't allowed to get diddly. The "Charity" managers was too busy sending the good stuff to Japan----and pocketing the proceeds. Nietzsche said that altruism does not exist. A case in point.
i used to work part time as a second job at a certain chain style thrift store (name withheld to protect the innocent) and when sorting we all took first picks even tho company policy forbade it and the best part was other coworkers set the price for you i got a set of almost new $400 golf clubs for 10 bucks once but i also scored a canon T90 and an old b&w 35mm enlarger for $5 as well as fome fd mount lenses. so yes that is what happens
Hmm. I sometimes miss out on photos because I think 'this has been done a million times before.'
I have always enjoyed photography, and it has been the hobby that has always been there for me even if I 'got into' other stuff... I always come back to it. For me, I was on a road to digital about 2 years ago. I had a Mamiya 6 and Canham LF set up gathering dust and had not been used for around 6 years in earnest anyway! So I thought, hmm.. flog it and get into digital. The reason I stopped using my gear was that I gotten into bow hunting, and rifle hunting of big game... Well, I found APUG and things really turned around... I shoot more picture now than anything else. My camera are used and even added to now with other systems... I actually shoot more film now, than I ever did! I never made it big in photography either. When I lived in the UK, I sold a few prints to friends and made gifts to family etc, but could never get a break. When I moved over here to the US, I took lots of photos, but again, no breaks.... So I took a hiatus as I acquainted myself with other endeavors and became Americanized in my outlook (and that was a good thing for me) Now with that behind me, I tried ot take my photography further. I got my own show.... Okay at a coffee shop.... and did not get one sale! Then this year I entered a shot for the MN state fair and get accepted... I am pleased as punch. That said, I still have an ever increasing number of prints that I have to find something to do with... So it's a case of keep on keeping on trying to make it happen. Stay hard working, and keep a balance of family, and work first, and then photography so that it remains enjoyable and not a chore, which it had become for me. I looked at the same reasons you did Flying Camera, trying to justify and make sense of it all. I am comfortable with what I am doing photgraphically now even if I do get into a rut with it now and again. It's what makes you evolve I find. Take the successes when they happen, and don't be too hard on yourself if they don't.
