Nice shots Ryan. Really makes me want to get a new camera.

I'm really glad that this thread exists.

Watching clouds catch fire at sunset, then fade into grey, spent drifts will never cease to fire the human imagination.

So calm up top and yet so active on the bottom. Really wild shot. I'm digging the detail in it.

Great photo. Get any photos of the active volcanos by any chance?

Not really. After the 2018 eruption, you can't get very close to the lava anymore. It's deep deep down in a crater and visitors are only allowed up top.

Also this trip was not easy on my gear. Dropped my film camera on some concrete and now the shutter won't work when focused to infinity, and my wide zoom is covered in sea spray.

What are you using your film camera for these days? I haven't picked up either of mine up for 8-9 years since it's hard to get good processing done these days (don't want to do it myself, dealing with the chemicals is a pain).

As for gear damage, having damaged a lens and broken a lens hood in odd accidents, I hear you on that. Never managed to damage a camera body though.

Fortunately I think the body is fine, and the lens was like $100 off eBay so not a huge loss. I have three film cameras: Canon EOS 650, Canon AE-1 and a Fujica Super 6—an old 1955 6x6 folding rangefinder. The folding rangefinder is fun for street photography, a medium format camera that I can slip in my pocket.

I use it for black-and-white. I shot my best friend's wedding on B&W film and use it for landscape occasionally, including on this trip. I don't bother with color film, I just shoot Ilford.

I develop film myself and have my own enlarger. Unfortunately my scanner died so I don't have a great way to digitize at the moment.

I know less about photography than anyone in the solar system, but I think it's awesome people are still shooting on cameras, with film (in the same way that I love that people still play wood and lacquer Telecasters and Jaguars through tube amps).

The "old ways" always endure, and hold their own. Those two Hawaii pictures above are beautiful.

Film is still alive and well. In a lot of ways I prefer the film photography community over the digital community. Nobody shooting film is a spec whore. It's mostly just amateurs having fun, since nobody really makes money shooting film these days.

Black-and-white film chemistry is pretty easy to work with. Everything's done at room temperature and they're safe as long as you don't drink them. Color chemistry has to be kept at 100˚F exactly and is far more toxic.

I think my problem was I always shot basic consumer film, like Kodak Gold 100/200, and Fujifilm (don't recall the name of the type anymore), 200/400. Never shot any black and white, not really my style for the most part.

Black and white film is more fun IMO. The process is much easier and you have a lot more leeway in the darkroom, whereas the color process is entirely standardized.

Hell you can develop B&W film in coffee if you really want.

Long time Applenova!

This winter I am moving to Harstad, Norway for aurora season, but here are some pics I took last week in south Norway, after a 10 mile hike to the top of the closest mountain.

edit: looks like I cant directly link to image URL, so check out the link below...

Stay tuned...I have bought a full frame sony and many fast and wide lenses.

Nice, what a treat to get to see that. Are these single shots or composites? Panting the foreground with light with a flashlight for a while?

I managed to get a few images from today's solar eclipse! Some you can clearly see sun spots! These were taken at 300mm with a Rebel XT. Yes, almost 18 years old and still rocking it!

Oh man, I didn’t know there was an eclipse today. If I don’t see it mentioned on the news, which I don’t watch (just all bad/sad, who needs it), I won’t know otherwise.

Was it widespread? Or just something n limited viewing zones. It never got dim or anything here.

The line of totality stretched from Oregon down through Texas. Here in Atlanta it was at 52.2% and so it was harder to detect. I had some of those glasses left over and so I did get to see it. A lot of fun

For this year's Eclipse Marketing Campaign, I drove exactly no miles, spent exactly no dollars, and was in the car for exactly no time.

Which is twice as much as I would spend if it was only fifty miles to the path.



Besides, the earth is flat and the moon is only, like, 45 feet in the air, so it's all fake!

Yes, Turtle, very cool. Glad you got to go do something you clearly wanted to do. Hope you and the fam had a great time. I appreciate a good road trip, I just don't really take pictures anymore because I tend to miss everything when I do.

Also, the last time I saw something like that second picture was when I woke up to my kid's cat sitting on my chest.

Did you have that revelatory experience so many have talked about? Magical? Emotional?

Thanks guys. I'm going to spend some time (shortly) to get the chromatic abrasions worked out as well as other basic processing. Nothing but fixing WB and such.

I wouldn't say anything was revelatory, emotional or magical about it. It is all well known science and my concrete brain just enjoyed the reality of seeing the sun get blocked completely by the moon. It was awesome and I'm really glad we made the trip. It was worth it, though I'm still paying the price for the complete lack of sleep on that trip.

Getting out of bed was hard this morning. I should have taken today off of work too. We didn't get a hotel or anything. The Motel 6 Mrs T checked the price on was $450 a night. FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS for MOTEL 6! Apparently some of the "suite" hotels were $1000 a night. We just napped in the van. My bed was amazing last night.

Very cool. It was raining here, so I didn’t even notice when it happened.

Given that it might be one of the last total eclipses ever, if you had time I’m sure it was worth the trip.
