its more how round the droplets are that gets me, you check out their other stuff and they have done heaps of them. i have tried getting droplets to look like that naturally and it doesn't work, so i guess they have done some distorting in photoshop.

the background has a surface blur filter on it and is the same image as the hearts made really large. the hearts are just the same layer behind each droplet and slightly warped so they assume a rounder shape.

half an hours work I reckon.


nah, I reckon it's all just refraction. water droplets photographed with a wide aperture against a patterned background. the droplets are just refracting the light from the background.


possible, but unlikely. all the shots on her website look retouched to shit. when it looks this unnatural, it usually is.

to what extent is it still photography when an image is that photoshopped?
when a raw imagine is doctored almost beyond all recognition from the original, is it still considered photography? grey area imo.

edit: seems to become more about your skill on a computer than with a camera tbh.

IMO its always photography if the source material is taken with a camera no matter how much you fuck with it.

obviously if its very unclear what its of, or has become totally abstract - I think its safe to say its no longer a photo and has become something else.

I totally dont agree about skill on computer over-taking skill with a camera, the two are synonymous. one is just an extension of the other.

Most photographers will know how to use photoshop to make the most of their work. Most commercial photography you see in advertising or editorial has usually been retouched to a greater or lesser extent. Its just part of the process.

^ i think that's what i'm trying to get at.

i do very little in the way of retouching my photos as i think it kind of detracts from the original image too much...that and i'm useless with editing programs. but really, you can make a pretty average shot looking fucking amazing if you know how to use photoshop.

having said that, i'm not a professional and could barely consider myself a hobbyist...so i'll get me coat.

maybe i should take the lack of posts as a sign to stop posting but i'm not going to!
started a "project 365" to take 1 photo a day for 1 year.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/villephant ... 624104928/

(still a lot of the days are missing because various film cameras were used)
I also got a new dslr (Nikon D80)

thanks

those are some nice shots
like the ones where it is several shots compiled *nods*

I tried scanning my own film tonight... well, i started about midnight and it is now 5am, and i got about 10 photos scanned... I think it should take a bit quicker once i get used to the scanner + program, it was going quickly by the end... but i gotta sleep i think
anyway, here are a few shots from my DIY camera...

thanks!
yeh the flecks and hairs are from the scanner, i dusted it off, but forgot about the back light...
i probably should wipe that off as well before i scan anymore.. lol
was really noticeable in the next lot i put through...
http://www.flickr.com/photos/villephant ... 6072859447
(the ones in that set from that point on (clicking next) are ones i scanned the other night)
it was the main reason i wanted to scan them myself, i had a roll scanned for me from that camera last time and i wasn't entirely happy with it, they came back in bits. there are supposed to be 4 frames per shot, but they gave me 2 or 3 and sometimes they were cut in half... which made it difficult to work with (although some of them i tried to play with that lol)
but yeh the dust and hairs are really obvious >.<
