I’d Gladly Pay You Tuesday

New camera, film scanner, far too much contrast, and, uh, something.

I have a new photo workflow for film:

  1. Take pictures
  2. Delivereth mine filme unto Targette
  3. Request “develop, cut, index print, CD” ($3)
  4. Return one day later to pick up the negatives and CD
  5. Upload pictures from CD (in 1565x1037 resolution) to http://gallery2.jpmullan.com/v/scans/
  6. Scan anything that I like, add way too much contrast and saturation, and upload those scans
  7. ?
  8. Profit!

I suppose that there should also be a flickr step in there, since some people like the whole flickr thing (and honestly, the web space that I am renting does not include niceties like “fast execution of mysql queries”).

With that said, here are some pictures:


A building on campus. With shadow.

The top of a tree, this time with building!

I should really install Photoshop again, because I ought to crop the light pole out of that shot.

I work at Coffman on campus

A jury of my peers. I kind of want to do a photo project around this room.

More trees. I LOVE vignetting. Good lenses have no character!

You might notice that I’m only shooting the tops of the trees. Every time I do this, I picture the little brother of a friend of mine from elementary school mocking some kid they knew. He would pull a baseball cap down low over his eyes and say:
“Can’tseethetopsofthetrees!” at such a rate as to cram all the words together into one German-sounding work (like Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz)

Then he would flip the brim up and shout “now I can!”

Something about his delivery still cracks me up. You might not get it, or even care to get it, but it’s like a song stuck in my head.


Lee Friedlander has a theme of shooting scenery through trees. This is not the same.

Speaking of songs stuck in my head, “come on Barbie, let’s go party, oh oh oh yeah!”

“I’m a barbie girl, in a barbie world, life’s fantastic, when you’re plastic!”
