    What's your photografic issue 2011?

    Hi,

    I'm new to APUG and would like to thank all you guys: great forum, keep the analog spirit alive! I am living in Berlin, Germany and shoot some 35mm analog (and digital) Nikons, two very old Pentax too as well as a Mamiya RZ67 Pro.

    I would like to start with a question and if you like to answer, great!

    What's your most common photographic issue this year - so far? Well, I have to say I'm fixed some kind to high contrasts. Bright sunlight in a dark wood or something like that. And, the analog equipment and results are by far superior to digital! I knew that before, but I am mostly fixed on this self chosen topic this year and it gave me some great experiences.

    So, what's your photographic issue 2011?

    Frank - hello and welcome to APUG. My biggest photo issue is trying to find time to get out and photograph. So just about any subject matter interests me.

    My issue is not being able to afford more equipment.

    Welcome to APUG, Frank!

    My biggest issue is to stop worrying about trying to make perfect pictures! I recently have been looking at the work of the great Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama. All my life I have been so selective about what I shoot because I was just trying to be too careful to make perfectly composed and technically perfect pictures. And then I come across a shooter like Moriyama, and just the idea to just go out and shoot more and stop worrying feels so liberating!

    Welcome to APUG, Frank!

    My biggest issue.... TIME! Too many photo ideas... not enough time to make them all happen.

    Hi Frank - welcome to APUG! My biggest issue at the moment is not having a darkroom to print in -- I find I become a much more intuitive (and hopefully better) photographer when I've been looking at my own work with a more critical eye. I also live in a fairly standard, boring Japanese city and it's hard to find inspiration to go out and shoot -- I need to break out of the box and get the creative juices flowing again.

    Welcome.

    My photographic focus this year has been trying to catch up with today's digital technology. It is a necessary evil, but I am trying to make the most of it.

    Not really an issue, this year I will begin using, and processing, colour negatives. I just received yesterday the last bits of equipments (flasks, acetic acid) and now I only need to go out taking pictures, with a negative attitude

    I'll be setting up my first darkroom soon and learning how to print! With regards to photography itself, I plan to shoot more 4x5 with my Crown Graphic, especially color negative. A big C-41 negative can be a beautiful thing indeed.
