    I was lucky enough to snag one as it emerged:


    I admit to having set my saturation about 10% up, but they really do have some interest colors before the new exoskeleton hardens.

    This is my first post.
    About me:
    I am a huge Dave McKean fan and I'm sure the influence shows.
    I have been working in photoshop for almost 20 years and shooting photos for over 25. Lately, I have been using my scanner as a capture device. Most of the images here are from objects (artifacts) found in my yard mixed with an occasional negative scan. I call them my "Yardifacts Series". Final output is 20"x30" so detail is really insane. I welcome all coments. Thanks for letting me play in your sandbox.

    I'll add more soon!

    Currently amateur, but lately I've been doing a photo a day project on my Flickr. Would love to do it full time, but I suck at getting my name out there and getting noticed.

    B&W Polaroid (fujifilm 3000b, in fact) peelback negative, or "Goop" as it is sometimes known, scanned and inverted in photoshop. If you leave them out to dry while shooting with strobes, you sometimes get a nice solarization thing, but it's unpredictable.


    Here's the actual photo, for comparison. Some folks flip the neg in photoshop, but I like the mirror-image.

    @coop with the Fuji material, you can remove the black backing with bleach and get a usable, if dense, negative.

    @Constantine The cathedral of junk! Someday, I will begin stitching the MANY many shots of that place I have into some composites.

    @COOP I am incredibly jealous of your cars.

    Can't remember where I left off with my stuff, but here are a few newer ones

    @Coop we met at a MK Ultra art exhibit of yours years ago; Packing the house up, I came across a Tower Records calendar you did. I also love your cars. driving to work

    Me and my camera got shit beaten out of at a recent NIN show. It was a blast:

    Feels almost like cheating, but I've been having fun with low-light stuff lately:

    @Munin I just saw your shots on the NIN forum thread for that show! Awesome! I'm working on getting the video someone posted on Demonoid... I no has a membership.

    Again, though, great shots!

    I haven't taken a real honest-to-god photographer photograph in almost five years. it makes me really sad. i need to get off my ass and find out where a public darkroom is. fortunately this thread is inspiring me. :) (and maybe I'll go back and scan a bunch of my old stuff while I'm looking.)

    @atomic pharaoh -- Those are amazing. Seriously.

    amateur here but I love taking photos. I've got a friend who is trying to go professional and he's given me some tips on composition etc. I have a flickr site but I have quite a backlog of stuff I need to upload. Because flickr pro stores at original resolution I tend to stick everything up there - I post some of the ones I'm happier with on my tumblr

    I currently have a Canon G9 which I love. I bought it as a bridge between a point and shoot and a DSLR, to see whether I'd actually get to know how to use all the bits and pieces. I'm hoping to buy a DSLR when I have the money, as I do find myself experimenting with the Canon.

    @Munin Those are AWESOME. Very nicely done.

    @NumberIV I really like that first shot.
