INDEED. I will start the weekend by wrestling two lions and stabbing them in the cranium, then eat their brains. Then I shall gain their powers and become a multi-lion/human BEAST.

I am currently listening to my female alt/rock play-list. PJ Harvey, KT Tunstall, Cat Power, Fiona Apple.
Who else should be on this list?


Toying with Processing

I wanted to see what light leaks looked like in a "nice" photo and it sooo doesn't work. It is far too much and completely unbelievable when shooting full light with low ISO. Maybe if I was shooting at 1600... maybe it would work.

Maybe...

Also, by merely having the fake light leak it begs the question regarding reality of the lens flare which ruins the rest of the photo.

This is an example of how processing can ruin a previously fine, if not nice, photo.

The cross processing is fine but also looks fake.

Just never make a fake lens flare, ok?

The only time I like lens flare is when it's the real deal.

I found some great examples of terrible flare.

I like that last one what with the sun being BEHIND the photographer.

You're missing a perfect cleaving opportunity here by using those daggers.

Daggers are far more manly, less murder-ly.

Nora Jones, Pink, Hole, Tori Amos, Lords of Acid, Jewel, Indigo Girls. I cannot help but notice the picture you listed is in the same post as you listening to female/alt rock....perhaps they are linked, no?

Oh.. I hate Hole. I've been trying to purge them from my collection but they keep.. coming... back.

Also,

That one writer hates 90% of Flickr, doesn't he? Most of the most popular photos on Flickr are nothing but oversaturated superprocessed people vignetted and/or textured. The only thing he didn't mention is the use of lights to write words.

1) Have you ever listened to Jem? She appears in my Pandora playlist all the time and I really groove on it. Reminds me a bit of KT Tunstall.

2) I am going to admit I like the photo, especially the colours.

1 - No, but I'll pump it into my Pandora list to give it a shot. Perhaps a stop at the resale CD shop is in order his weekend.

2 - That's ok. I like the colors too but think the light leak is over doing it. I still respect you. ;)

Bif Naked has been a favorite alt/rock artist of mine for quite a while.
abmann From: abmann Date: March 9th, 2010 01:23 am (UTC) (Link)
I had absolutely no idea who that was. I just found that image and thought it was super awesome. :) I'm gonna have to listen to his stuff now!
