so i said i was thinking about trying this out in the girlzine thread and finally got around to it. film stills are great and a lot can be learned from them so get posting/watching!
>Permanent Vacation - Jim Jarmusch (i've decided to finally sit down and watch jarmusch to see what all the hubbub was about. the only one i had seen of his before this was dead man. i thought it was okay.)
It's true. Self-portraiture can be a great way to learn photography, from the basics of exposure, white balance and depth of field, to intermediate stuff like posing, to advanced studies like how the camera lies and selling yourself to strangers.
Are you all about what you create, or all about your tools?
Artists are all about what we create. We couldn't care less what tools we or someone else used to create something; we're concerned with the art itself. Artists are all about vision: the ability to see something that hasn't been created yet.
>>2759302 We don't care about the process; the final art is all that matters.
Sure, if we see something really cool we might ask another artist how he got that effect, but we don't spend much of our time blabbing about tools or techniques when we could be making more art, or exchanging ideas instead.
Poke fun of our tools, and who cares? We take it as a compliment — and it marks you as an idiot. As artists, we force whatever tools we have at our disposal to create what we demand: to take what's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2759303 To an artist, his work is him. His work is his vision realized. He is his work. His art is his own soul. His art is important, while the tools are irrelevant.
Artists are consummate technicians, possessing virtuosic ability to make our tools do exactly what we need then to do — but the tools are just an enabler; never the end result.
If you poke fun of my camera, I take it as a compliment because it means I'm able to work around bigger roadblocks than the next sap to get the results I want. When... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2759304 Technicians, on the other hand, are all about their tools. Poke fun of a technician's tools or how he uses them, and he'll take it personally. To a technician, he is his tools. His tools are a physical extension of his body, so say something good or bad about his camera, and he takes it personally.
This distinction dawned on me one morning when I reflected on how my four-year-old is already an artist, not wanting any of us to see any of her pieces before they are complete. She couldn't care less... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /p/. My gran was cleaning out her attic, found this old Polaroid camera and gave it to me. I'm desperate to try it out, but I didn't realise how expensive the film is, so I have a few questions.
Is there any way to check the camera still actually works before I put film in it? She thinks the camera has been up there for about 30 years. I know these things are built to last but that's still a long time and it was hardly the best conditions up there.
Are there any cheaper alternatives for film? I've Googled and had a look on Amazon... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2759007 It will work, It is powered from the film pack which holds power for the film delivery and the flash. Trust me unless it has been underwater it will work. The Impossible project does Polaroid film. Alternatively You could just use a 5 megapixel cheap digital, crop it into a square with a double border on the bottom edge, print it out on an old HP Deskjet using non branded ink cqrtridges, and on ordinary photocopy paper scan the print and turn it into a jpeg then have it printed at Asda/Boots as a square glossy...

>>2759007 Nothing will work on it without a film pack in it as the batteries are in the film pack. Yes you are a hipster. If u want instant camera then look at what fuji instaxes do. Polaroid is just a brand name now used by various manufacturers to sell tvs and cameras generic shit.
