To me, there is something
so beautiful and interesting
in scenes captured
in old photography.

for example
This website is so worth looking at...

Nebrasks State Historical Society
Revealing History
Using Digital Technology to Learn More about Our Past


www.nebraskahistory.org/lib-arch/research/photos/digital/history.htm

Glass Plate Photo by Solomon D. Butcher -
Photo and website hot link shown above from a collection of
Solomon D. Butcher's work, shot between 1886 and 1912.

FRA!!!

Thank You for pointing us to Your Gallery fradefra.deviantart.com at Deviant! Your work really looks so GREAT in context within the site there too! Your "eye" fits right in easliy... "Silence" really looks extra special awesome there! It's such a beautiful place to browse around on the site there also... I keep checking back to see if You've added more shots, too! *lol* Keep us posted here too.
Did You notice this?...
It is amazing how some of the same, familiar shots on your MYSpace page "speak" differently in the context of The Gallery... the Mood is different, deeper, quieter and it seems more introspective. Very interesting.

Very Cool & Keep That Canon Clicking *lol*!

This was a fun experiment.

I decided to take my digital camera,
turn off the flash,
stand up and point it at the wall in front of me,
holding the camera in my hand without looking thru it,
and then snap a few shots to see what I'd get...
I then dumped them into my computer,
to pick one to mess with.
I ended up with a shot that caught my reflection in the glass
so I chose that one... cool.
Then, I did a little color adjustment, and there's the first one.

Then I wanted to see what fun I could have with that same shot,
by taking the white-point (normally white)
and the black-point (normally black)
resetting them to anything but white or black.
(((Like in 2001, A Space Oddyssey)))

Here they are...



Luckily, color-wise, when I crash landed
I think I ended up right back
on SoulfulPlanet! *lol*




"...now open the pod bay doors, HAL"
*lol*

FRA!!!

I was wondering about that (i.e. takes a long time to upload on Deviant, etc.). No kidding! It's a beautiful site there, but easy to get lost finding favorite pics. BTW Your "Me Myself and I" is stunning seeing it that large on the site there... Great Portrait! How did You light it... two lights or three, or just one?
(((it's sure fast here on SoulfulPlanet, and on MySpace, thank goodness! and it's easy to edit if I mess up.... which i Always do *lol* I love that "fix it" factor)))   I'm all re-inspired to get back into pics, film & movie (analog & digital) again, and have been working at it in between everything else on my plate. i broke out the Minolta SRT102 SLR... totally manual! Love it!
Ya have to keep creating! I'll be posting new ones here soon, as i get them done. OMG Thanks for the encouraging comments!

WOW! Great stuff Guys! First time seeing some of this.......
 
Gene,
I too love "period" photo's particularly of the old west, native americans, & the Alaskan goldrush days.
The "reveal" in those historic Nebraska photos is kinda eerie almost ghostlike images that were previously hidden.
Your experiment is cool.  I see your image in the glass!
 
Fra Fra,
Beautiful, professional shots, amazing stuff to look at!

Total Eclipse of The Moon
- 02/20/2008 -


Ok,
Outside,
Right NOW
in the 27 cold at 10:19pm, Feb 20, 2008,
from the "D" Street Deck...
on the East Coast,

The Moon is having a Total Eclipse...

Here's (4) quick hand held shots I just took 2 seconds ago of the moon!









(((hard to type, my hands are frozen!)))
~Happy Eclipse!~
Geno

p.s. Marty broke out the "Big" Canon EDS 10D, a Telephoto Lens
and Tripod... his shots should be stellar!

Standby... downloading them from the Canon now...!

~~~ Update ~~~ 11:25pm ...
Here's a quick "Crop" of the first one
shot with the Canon on a tripod
on top of the snow covered picnic table
on the "D" Street Deck
from
Marty Lindley's Camera...


How Cool is this!


Playing with the Exposure and Contrast of this same exact shot,
Look what I discovered ...
"The Man In The Moon Is Well"...


Nearly Real Time Live Shots for SoulfulPlanet from the "D" Street Deck,,,
More On The Way!

I've been finding some interesting shots that everyday people
post on the very Forum Friendly www.Webshots.com...
Webshots gives you the code to post, link and share pics of varying sizes on the web..
All these pics are hotlinked with credits, etc... just click any pic for more info. A Very Cool idea!
