    My cats or if I'm really bored, I stand outside the building and take pics of the cemetery across the street from work.

    Oh yeah,my poor,poor cat-if I can't get out,he can't sleep peacefully.I'll watch
    him all day and anything that catches my eye is fair game.As a kind and
    gentle soul he tolerates my constant intrusions but every so often will wait till
    I see the perfect shot and then move!Must be the whole predator thing.

    I just get frustrated. I have no idea how to set up a shot, much less how to meter it. Though I have to admit that I have been trying to expand this horizon.

    I have been playing around with cameraless images made from manipulating emulsions on clear fixed film with chemicals, etching, stains, smoke localized heating etc and incorporating various elements permantly attached to the neg with canadian balsam. Can either be enlarged or contact printed.

    I also found a book that describes how to do similar things in color using polarizing filters, gels and various prism designs to provide the color.

    Mark, sounds familiar..it's a good thing I shoot with a camera, if were a pistol it would be more like 'ready, shoot, aim'....

    That all depends on how close you want to get

    Here's a shot from my last spider shoot...

    hi mark

    the stuff i do when i am " trapped " in the house with the 3 kids is the same sort of thing i do when i have " photographer's block ". at least for me, it doesn't matter how i set up the shot, or what film i use, or anything at all. i just take a random shot - maybe push film that is supposed to be shot at 100 asa to 1600, maybe soup it in dektol, doesn't really matter.

    glennsyd & andy k. i keep my distance from spiders
    i was bitten by one at a beach on the rocks the summer of 1990, and
    was not a happy-camper for about 6 months. neuro-toxins are NOT fun

    I have done the same thing a few times but she doesn't seem to mind, at least not when the shots come out nice...

    Just got a "new" 5x7 B&J, and by the time the lensboards arrive, it will be blackfly season in Vermont. For those of you in the rest of the country (outside the Northeast), you do not want to know what blackflies are. Needless to say, I will not be outside shooting. That means the first work I do with this new toy will be still lifes - I like vegetables, my wife's glass art collection, and funky junk.
