I have a new photo workflow for film:
- Take pictures
- Delivereth mine filme unto Targette
- Request “develop, cut, index print, CD” ($3)
- Return one day later to pick up the negatives and CD
- Upload pictures from CD (in 1565x1037 resolution) to http://gallery2.jpmullan.com/v/scans/
- Scan anything that I like, add way too much contrast and saturation, and upload those scans
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:
I should really install Photoshop again, because I ought to crop the light pole out of that shot.
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.
“I’m a barbie girl, in a barbie world, life’s fantastic, when you’re plastic!”
