It's an autoharp! It has 36 strings and is played by pressing down chord bars which mute certain strings so strumming it plays a chord.

I actually used one of those exact bendy tripods and a point and shoot camera from 2006 for this too, which I always have with me.

thanks!!!!

I do like to abuse posterization, but for the more extreme ones, it was a heavy manipulation of the levels, doing a big clamp on the max black and white. Also upped saturation on 1 and 3.

love those, Mirzaba. i always enjoyed atmospheric photographic backgrounds in games. excited to see what you do w/ them!!

is there some posterization i’m seeing? how many colors did you restrict it to?

Hello, I recently took some photos from my phone and adapted them into atmospheric backgrounds for an interactive story project I'm working on. They're all 320 x 200, for a low res, achromatic aesthetic. Here are a few of my favorites




Here's the whole gallery

I happened to get one of those Pantax Minis that could do mini Polaroid-type photos, and I noodled around and took about a dozen of them. And given that I love how scanners pick up photographs/I've been thinking of getting a standalone scanner for my artwork, suddenly the idea of having one doesn't seem quite as farfetched as before.

I may not be full-on crazy enough to drop 5000 USD on a camera, but I did spend a lot on a nice enough one. Also a few lenses.

Latest lense is a mirror reflector type.


Took a photo of the moon to see how it does before I wake up at 3AM to get the super blue blood moon shots.
I am somewhat impressed with it. (This is a crop with rescale [down], w)

glad you all enjoyed this one!

that’s a sick photo, maple. tbh photograhy is all about lucky shots anyway, ultimately. i think you caught a great moment.

besides, i’m a big proponent of shooting w/ whatever you have. i only take out my full frame dSLR when clients ask for it.



for example, just picked up this camera off Craigslist—it turns 10 years old this year! i’m rly excited to shoot w/ it and a friend wants to do a shoot next week, so i’ll probably use it.

that is a wonderful portrait, sofi

i have an old DSLR but it's currently loaned to a friend (i really need to get it back...)
but i don't really know much about photography beyond hobbyist tinkering

i once got extremely lucky with this shot though

taken with the dinkiest low-end android smartphone ever

hi friends, i took a new pic. this is my friend Chema, we shot this just after sunset. i had two friends there as assistants, one holding an umbrella softlighter to the right on a ladder and one to the left far back holding a bare strobe.


(click to enlarge)


i took this w/ the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 and two Flashpoint strobes. i dragged the shutter to expose the background. it was cold. i’ll probably shoot w/ them all again soon b/c this was an awesome experience.

hope you’re all taking photos still. let’s see what you got.

Oh doody!

I hate you fog... ruining what would have been a good photo taken from the 12th floor.

There's also another one, but its quality is even worse, so there would be no point in trowing here its thumbnail.

Everything here.

I have a bunch of photos that I took in the past few weeks that I never did post-process yet into JPGs that I might upload soon. Also, dealing with this stuff is kind of annoying with iPhoto since I have to essentially export the images that I want to process first before doing anything. Also, the camera import functionality seems to be geared towards people who take photos and then apply an event to either all items imported, or just the first split event, not even letting me add in names to the rest of the split events.

BUMP!

I don't really know why, but for some reason I really like this place...

The "Color depth tree" thread started with a photo like this. :/

Also, what's going on in this picture?

Who knows.

"Reviving" this thread.

I own an "old" NIKON COOLPIX L3, which is okay for me,and I use it whether I have to go to an important place.
However it shuts down when the battery is not even close to drain. This means that if that happens I need to switch it on every time I do a photo.
Otherwise I use my SAMSUNG Smartphone, which has the worst touchscreen ever devised by men.
Well, I took some photos on the trip to Sappada.

NOT A WARNING ANYMORE : Not Huge Images





------------
As a bonus, here is something literally on the road which generally bugged me out for some days.

In the words of Dr. Ashens: Yin Yang symbol drawn incorrectly.
I don't know why, but it's not quite easy to see it here.

This one was taken with my SAMSUNG Smartphone.

I ended up getting the Nikon d5200 actually which I'm really happy with except I'm not a huge fan of the ViewMaster. Otherwise, it's really groovy. I've been taking lots of pics.

It's awesome to have the freedom to control things like focus, shutter speed, etc. but adjusting to the new equipment is difficult. But still, I'm having a lot of fun!
