    Post your photography! I personally never cared much for still photography until my dad gave me a 35mm camera. Shooting film opposed to digital is what gets me off the couch and out on the streets.

    Here's a shot of a statue in Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta:

    My attempt at "Urban Pictorialism," emulating guys like Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen



    For my prints, I erased the circular object in the lower left and increased the sepia tone a bit.

    Just a shot I took at the Ai WeiWei exhibition, iPhone shot, should invest in a decent slr, got a mirrorless nex 6 does the job, but could use some decent lens for it, better off getting a new body though.

    Haven't done much still photography at all, and I'd love to learn more than I know about it (my biggest regret coming out of college is without a doubt going to be that I never managed to sneak a photo class into my schedule) but I do sort of dig this shot that I grabbed in my yard last winter.

    between these and the fruit bats and the rosella's that nest in the palm tree out the front, it's a cacophony of demons round here.

    This was shot on a Yashicamat 124G with Kodak 400TX 120 film (medium format). Really fun camera to shoot with, it's like a cheap Rollieflex.

    Thank you, here's some more that I recently put up on flickr:









    I just took a trip to Nashville, so hopefully I will have a couple good ones next week when I get the film developed.

    Here's one from a college graduation and some from a trip to Nashville:









    Can't decide which one of the trumpet player I like better - I like him looking and pointing at me in the second one, but I like the overall frame better in the first one (you see more of the street).

    Also, those three color shots are my first roll of Portra 400 - and wow do I love the muted colors I get out of it after adding in a tobacco filter digitally. Too bad it's so much more expensive than the cheap stuff.
