Ian Curtis

This is another cross processed shot. The thick film base that my methods don’t clear necessitates drastic steps to get the darks back, which results in the lovely artifacts on this image.

There’s just something about this one that I like.

Pentax K1000, Fuji Superia X-tra 400 cross processed in F76+.

    the trip was great, it was really something different to what i’ve experienced as “holidaying”. i think the whole cruising scene is for fairly outgoing individuals, so luckily for me & my partner we are pretty outgoing, lol.

    i bought my D90 today it’s currently charging & i’m installing the software & looking anxiously at the manual, lol, it’s huge. i’m keen to explore the world with a “real” camera now, hehe.

    i think what you did with that last photograph was great. this photo almost looks like a shadow! interesting concept x

    p.s thanks for the vote of confidence on the growth of my photog

    that’s good news : ) i’ve ordered some magnifying lens/s to attach to my lens/s, so i can take enlarged insect photographs : )

    i played with the camera a bit yesterday getting to know it, without using the manual; i find it easier to learn that way

    thanks, i will definitely ask you for pointers x

    i’m really excited you’re considering getting a nikon, espcially since you love your current camera. the d90 is a wonderful camera, from the moment i held it in my small hands, i knew it was the ‘one’; sounds like love lol. i have UV filters, if that’s what you’re talking about(?) i’m new to SLR remembers, so i may not understand you entirely at the present time. the landscapes were fun to shoot & the gulls too, i actually like photographing seagulls (lol) & was proud of capturing that perticular one! this weekend i’m heading to the local zoo with my girlfriend to test out our cameras, she’s using the D60 at the moment. : ) take care & update me soon

    yes day two, i’m a keen learner lol & i’m always experimenting; which you’ve already noticed. plastic fantastic sounds scarey, i don’t know about that one lol. which lens do you recommend(?) we can get sigma & tamron lens/s here which are a cheaper option.

    as for the filters, all i have at the moment is UV filters. i have a nack for timing things rather well I’ve found when i’m out taking photographs, for example the seagull with the broken leg.. (post excuse me, I’m new(?) photograph six)..notice that one(?)

    what’s craigslist(?) lol *googles it* oh right, craigs list i get you now.

    when we went on the P&O cruise at christmas time, the professional photographers on board were all using the D2000 & D3000, i kept asking them questions lol, as i was looking at getting a nikon SLR.

    i went to numerous camera stores & asked about the D90, i asked whether the canon, olympus or pentax had something similar & were better.
    one guy actually laughed at me when i compared the nikon D90 to the canon ESO 450D ; “you just compared mercedes to toyota. if you’re already using a nikon, why down grade?” & that answered my questions straight up.

    i had no intention of buying anything other than a nikon, but i was just curious.
    you’re not a fan of canon i take it(?) my neighbour who’s a professional wedding photographer said they lag & there photograph output is of a lower standard.
    i look forward to welcoming you to the other side : )

    you’re very knowledgable when it comes to these cameras, i’m learning more from you than i would be at websites & manuals lol. : )
    i think people (including myself) will always be biased when it comes to what they’re using & it happens not only with cameras, but cars, suburbs, career, anything in life really. i kept a realistic eye out when i shopped for my new camera, i did ask about other brands but when i made my mind up, it was set.

    will you still shoot black & white with your new camera(?) i don’t know how to set my camera to black & white yet.
    i’m going to buy a tripod soon & maybe head to the city for night landscape experiments. do you think i’ll need a bigger flash(?) – than the one that’s built into the camera.
