monthly photo project - a new beginning

ok, after the discussion thread from awhile ago, i sat, thought and decided that changes were needed.
so, this month we will start a whole new thing based on the suggestions offered.

first change is that there will be a thread, a stuck thread, for each monthly project, which means that the thread will stay in view and not be tucked away in the gallery.

the topic for the month will be posted in the first post of the thread.

there wil also be a topic posted for the next month.
this should offer our resident 'slowpokes' more time for contemplation & execution of photos.

hopefully this will mean more contributions from more shooters.

hope this works for us.
let's give it a try and see...

january 2006 topic is - 'cafe shots', that is shots in, of or about cafes.
i'll lead it off with a flare full shot!

and for february, we should offer homage to valentine's day, so how about we have 'love' for our topic. that should offer a broad range of ideas.

in february, i will remove the sticky from this thread and stick another thread with a reminder of february's topic and the addition of march's topic included.

simple...let us hope!

Got some Tri-x in my Kiev, some Diafine in the cupboard now all I have to do is go out and get some coffee or a beer.

What an excellent idea!

Wonderful idea, Joe! I'm on my way to bed, though, but will rummage through my plethora of cafe shots and post a few tomorrow.

Are image postings like these permitted (i.e. src from "another site" -- my own in this case)?:

(oh, I guess not, the IMG tag is turned off here, so I'll attach it...)

keep in mind that the original idea of the photo project was for new pics, like an assignment to help keep us fresh.

Ok, so I'll go and get a new picture...

Also, I'm confused: you said this would stay in view, but I didn't see that, not on the main forum page, not on the main gallery page, nor on the Forum Thread view. I had to go and fetch it. This is going to remain in view where?

it stays close to the top in the rff photo project section.

i'm not sure how to stick it to the front page.

I like the topic, shooting indoors is more interesting here at the moment. Everything else is just grey and cold :-)

AND wet AND dark. I found myself shooting at EI 1600 out of doors the other day and still not getting fast enough shutter speeds to freeze movement

Aria with 50/1.7 Planar, Portra UC400. Ok, I've been having a little SLR tryst these past few weeks, but better than having no photos this month. I figure if Trevor can post Contax photos (not that mine can compare) in the venomous forum...

Now I cannot beleive that after drinking THAT the elephant didn't turn PINK!

Anyway, provided I don't screw up another upload - here's my first "humble" and way too bright submission.

Hope to have more to come....

I thought I had set the film speed to 1/30 on the Zorki, it was 1/125. Sometimes you screw up lucky. Tri-X in Diafine, Zorki-4, J-12.

well then, thanks keith!

but i also must add that i need an editor.

there are times when i have a shot that i think is ok and others like it better than i do.
and then there are times when i have a shot that i really like and others think it nothing much at all.
one of my ex's was a terrific editor and i was a much 'better' photographer when she edited my work.

sorry for the ot rant...

Joe, that guy on the left looks hungover (at least that's what I do when I have a hang-over).

Here's a shot from back in the fall.

M4-P, M-Hex 50/2, Kodak 400UC.

Coffee break, Junction, Texas. There aren't a lot of places to choose from here. I originally shot this because of the four Chevy trucks parked out front. This was on my Minolta Hi-Matic 7S on Fuji Superia Reala ISO 100 film. 1/250 @ f/11. PS for cropping and sizing. Scanned by my friends at Nelson Photo in San Diego.

Cafe shot taken fairly recently... La Baguette (link) is THE best place to stop while in Old Colorado City (Colorado Springs, CO)... Their croissants & french onion soup are unbelievable!!! I'm not kidding either... I have friends way on the other side of town (20-30mins) and I would drive to this place every time I'm down there if I could! I miss the european influence of home, but this cafe is an oasis (right down the street from all the southwestern tourist trinket stores)...

Ok, back away from the cheese and talk about the photo! (hungry, methinks so!)

Taken with my QL17 GIII... Probably walgreens brand C-41... Shallow DOF was intended to focus on the food, but cropped too tightly to the bottom of the table? Oh well, can't win them all! The scan was also from a print, so not the best... ok, enough talk.

One of the hardest parts of being creative Joe, is being one's own editor. I feel just as you. I am always surprised, still, how people respond to certain imagery that I've done. I think it's better that we never figure that part out. Otherwise we are producing from a formula. Life is much more interesting when it's unpredictable!

With regard to editing one's own work, I believe it takes time to see one's pictures with the eyes of another. Sometimes I open a box of prints on the shelf, from the past, and I can tell immediately whether or not I like them. Old Garry Winogrand regularly put aside film and pictures to view--edit, whatever--at another time. Truly, I must suspend my doubts about images when printing them in the darkroom; I must trust my judgment at the time. Otherwise, I might not print a thing.

Thanks, Keith! If you're in Bryan and you want to stop by, the name of the place is Sweet Eugene's. It's a very nice place. What's the name of your local NYC shop - in case I'm in the neighborhood?

"Praia dos Ingleses" Oporto

Here goes my contribution for this month photo project (my first one).

This one was shot on last thursday, on a sunny but cold day at "Praia dos Ingleses", a small coffee/bar with a nice view to the sea

This was shot using my new Canonet G-III QL17, f16 1:500, Xp2.

Thanks for looking


Sergio

There's something awfully nice and peaceful about sitting by yourself in a cafe
