View Full Version : How Long Since You Took a Picture?

I've been in a bit of a slump on and off for some time now. For me, a slump means not making pictures a few times a week.
Creativity wanes...life gets in the way...lots of reasons not to shoot.

So let's see how regularly the rest of you are shooting.

I was out in central London yesterday with an M2 and 50mm Elmar and shot about 10 frames on HP5. I haven't processed it yet though. Before that, probably one day last week.

I tried to think of a poll option along the lines of "Frank told me I could satisfy my GAS here," but I wasn't sure of how well that would go off. :angel:

About 5.30 pm Manila time. I shoot pictures for a living. Did shoot in my studio, strobe-lit, on digital sensors in a DSLR. However, it has been three days since I used a real (read: ie, Zorki RF with BW film in real world situations)

Hi!

Interesting question.
I suppose I need to split my answer.

1) Some test shots or snapshots, I took today.
2) "Real" photos, i.e. with time to think about composition and light, I did not take for a while. Don't have the time at the moment.

Hey Nick,

Where'd you find a class to take?

02-16-2007, 07:59
I always carry a digital P&S with me wherever I go. The beauty of this camera, a Casio Exilim S-600, is that it is so small and light you hardly know it's there. (Err...let's see you say that for an M3.) There's always something worth shooting every moment of evyer day.

I usually document my commute to work, sometimes with just random shots from the car. I also like to photograph heavy construction equimpment - I love it's beauty and power. I get some great shots of it out the window of my car. I firmly believe that if you were locked in an empty room with a camera, there would be material enough for a lifetime of shooting. There is beauty and interest and wonder everywhere.

I am in a B&W class with weekly assignments, so I find myself walking around with the camera in hand, pocket or around my neck most of the time. We're just starting out, so we are still bracketing every shot, which means that a two-roll assignement is only 24 pictures. In a couple of weeks we will just shoot straight. Yikes, coming up with 72 frames is going to test my creativity.

edit - Tuolumne, I just saw you post. I need to think (or I should say -see) more like you.

Ah, this poll brings to my mind a very good question.

Does "practice makes perfect" notion applies to photography?

If it does apply, until what point? can you practice your way to the level of the masters like Ansel Adams or HCB or (insert your fave photog here)?

If it doesn't apply, why not?

dazedgonebye
02-16-2007, 09:27
Practice doesn't make perfect in any pursuit.

Practice of perfection "makes perfect." Practicing my bad habits just reinforces them.

Parctice always makes better, but by itself it doesn't make great. That requires a gift of something - determination, stubborness, passion, vision, technique ... It's different for everyone but must be there to excel - in anything.

02-16-2007, 12:40
Forty-five minutes ago. We had a situation where melting snow froze over all the trees and signs and basically everything. There was a nice back-lit willow tree encased in ice and glittering in the sun. Had my Fed 1g, Jupiter 12 and Zeiss yellow-green filter. Now if only the flare isn't too bad from shooting into the sun, I may have something. On the other hand, this is a lens know for flare.......

dazedgonebye

Again, I have to say that the results here are impressive. 89% within the last week.
We may be a bunch of gearheads, but we're still burning film (electrons).

Before it stayed below 25 degrees as a norm, I would bring my camera with me to work. (I do route work). So now I leave it home. But on warmer days, it goes with me. Just trying to avoid that nasty condensation factor.

But I get my spells where I get a subject I want photograph, and shoot a roll or two. But it takes a week or so. I don't BURN through 2-3 rolls anymore. (Been there-Done That when I young and had Film to Burn and I did my own developing too, in a 3 reel tank)

More selective now, I guess that is what time does to you. Plus, hopefully, my "EYE" has a mature look on life. So I don't "waste" as much. But I still waste frames :eek: , Oh well, always learning something anyway.

As an average, I guess around 1-3 days and 4-10 frames.

Shooting this morning- COLD!!!- but got out with the new (to me) .58 M7 and the 35/2.0. Absolutely exactly what I was hoping from that viewfinder- I'm able to work with the wider lens in the same way I work with the 50 on the .72- so I had great fun. Shooting in the biggest nearby town, a good long walk, and a nice visit with a friend at his office to warm up and load cameras- I usually park at the bottom of the hill, walk around, then take my break at his office (on top of the hill) and then get another hour or so in shooting.

I last shot yesterday morning, out with the XPAN2 and then before that it was a short bit of shooting Tuesday before classes, but nothing much there, I really just wanted to get out in the sun after sitting in the office all morning. Before that, Sunday morning, the first try of the .58. This is about average for me these days, thrice or four times a week, and if the weather is less cooperative more time in the darkroom.

I am thinking about souping my own--several advantages there. The most significant is film choice. But my difficulty with that isn't room, precisely, but time. Specifically that I live in a boarding house which means I share a bathroom and the other people wouldn't appreciate me tying up the bathroom for15 or 20 minutes washing film. Add to that the cost of a scanner. And a major computer up grade...not gonna happen anytime soon, I think.
A daylight tank and I could process at work except that I may be changing jobs at the end of March...
C-41 and mini lab scan are still the better choice for me.:bang:

Nice day here today, so I walked about town shooting alleys and art and manikins, using up an expired roll of 120 Ektachrome (10 exposures) in the recent Fuji GW670III.

I too was in a bit of a slump since early December after our vacation, but it's picked up in past weeks as I've finished off some stagnant rolls. :)

8 days ago. Quite unusual for me, as I usually shoot daily because the more I shoot, the better I get (merely my subjective assessment).

On 31 March I woke up with a fever of 102 F and had my partner, Barbara, take me to the Copper Queen Hospital here in Bisbee. In the ER the temp had risen to 103F, so my friend and personal doctor, Syed Azam, ex-rayed the old lungs and declared that I had pneumonia. They let me out Friday. Temp's been normal since Wednesday.

Pissed me off as I had several shoots planned involving using my "new" Leica IIIf. But, during that last week in March I did manage a couple of rolls in the IIIf. Darn things works just fine. As I had purchased just the body, I fitted my trusty C/V 35/2.5 in the first roll and, later, My Canon 50/1.8 for the second roll, and developed and printed them straight-away.

Good camera, great lenses. I say good rather than great because I'm not used as yet to the little rangefinder/viewfinder peepholes. From the Bessa R to the IIIf is indeed a step back in time, but it's fun trying to master what my predecessors apparently used so effortlessly.

Glad to be back with all of you,

Ted

And the last action of the evening: i picked up the konica hexar af, the main reason i went there.
But i had a kick shooting in the nice half-sunny weather and all the interesting people around me.

Shot about half a roll yesterday afternoon/evening with Minolta CLE + 28 Summicron + Fuji NPZ800 at a final season wrap-up fund-raiser committee meeting + barbecue. Nice gathering but for one well-lubricated loudmouth. :(

Had been using a Zeiss-Ikon with 50mm f/2 Classic Heliar and Kodak 100UC on a walk earlier in the day.

[By the off-topic way, and FWIW, I found that the Pentax 100mm f/4 Macro is clearly a Heliar formula, with that distinctive +- - -+ arrangement of five elements in three groups. Glass looks almost identical to the above mentioned Classic Heliar...]

Yesterday at the local farmer's market. But it wasn't a rangefinder, but the new P&S Leica Mini Zoom I just got. Should finish the roll in a couple of days and will see the results.

Emerging from a bit of a Black Hole.

1 36 exp. roll on successive weekends in June.
1 24 exp. roll between wed. & fri. last.
1 36 exp. roll in 4 hours Sat. night.

I shall endeavor to maintain this pace. It feels good.

How long since you got a great picture would have been a more embarassing question...

I carry a camera everyday, looking for something interesting to photograph.Fine practice; that surely increases your chances of finding interesting photos wherever you go. Seems to me many of my better photos result from chance factors, being at the place at the right time... and with a camera of course!

I missed the clouds Ted. We didn't get any in the valley.

I think it was a week today for me. It wasn't with a RF either. I was using my Canon T-90. I need to get out with my Leica and pound out a few shots.

Usually I shoot everyday. This morning I had a camera (R-D1s, W-Nikkor-C 35/2.5) with me on the saturday walk. The latest pic was shot (Canon Powershot S3) about 30 minutes ago in our garden - our Lagotto dog puppy after it got sheared (phhh, that was a tough job btw - that little beast took a long time to surrender). This evening I'll put a fast lens (could be the Canon 50/1.2) on the R-D1s and carry it to a friend's birthday party.

Last Sunday.
Leica II just back from OK; fitted CV 35/2.5 and walked down the road looking for pictures. Tipping down with rain, I came across this incongruous scene.

HP5+, scanned with Epson 4990.
Struggling to get an acceptable image-size (? too big/too small).

I purposely took off most of March and all of April & May to concentrate on other endeavors; no cameras and very little RFF. In the middle of June, I threw some cameras, lenses, film, journal and clean underwear in a bag and went on a short road-trip vacation, shooting again. The break from photographing was good for me. Creatively, I feel rested and ready.

I took some on vacation last week, including a few with the lens cap on.
Damn rangefinders! ;)

I completed the rolls in three cameras about 45 minutes ago on the front porch of our home.

1. Contessa LK (guess focus)
2. Taron 35 (rangefinder)
3. Canon T90 with Schneider enlarging lens (SLR)

Couple of hours ago.
A major limb of my sycamore tree split up and came to rest on my roof.
