Are you more digital or analog? I'm not talking about whether you shoot film, I know most here shoot primarily or entirely digital ... and have done so for more than a decade. I mean in your approach to life. I love the digital world but my approach to life still has a very strong analog component. For example, I love Lightroom and have used it since v 1.0. I started using it while working as a digital tech for a photographer several years my junior. I love technology. But.... I expected that once I got all 80,000 or so images completely organized, it would make it easier to keep track of where everything was, which photos I uploaded where, which are RM or RF. That occurred around 2012, but while I can find any photo in the blink of an eye, it still doesn't do everything I want. For organizing some projects printing out old fashioned contact sheets make the job easier. Sometimes I just need the ability to jot down notes. I've been using a computer for about half my life now, but those first 30 analog years still mean I sometimes feel better with paper and pencil in front of me - easier to jot notes. I also have been loving the concept of keeping a bullet journal, which I've done for about a year and a half now. I have one for everyday stuff, and a second with sections for stock and fine art photo ideas and processing notes when I do something artsy or learn something new in PS or other software. So, we know that a fair number of us belong to the 60+ crowd. That means in college a computer took up an entire room, but a few years later PC's were on the scene. My husband is years younger than I am, so he used a computer (in a school computer lab) rather than an electric typewriter, though we are probably both equally proficient on the computer by now. He likes to keep a notebook too. How about you? Interested to know how your organize your day, your notes, your work, your ideas? e.g. I have a notebook with blank pages where I draw out photo shoot ideas. I do most of my reading (NYTimes, Washington Post, and various other magazines and newspapers as well as most books on my Kindle) but I love a notebook for writing in, even though I keep scores of notes on my laptop too. Still love the feel of paper and pen. I even bought a fountain pen recently.
Hi, I'm Robbe Nagel and I'm new to this platform. I'm a student who loves to shoot with analog camera's (using film of course). I notice that this platform is naturally dominated by digital camera's but I was wondering whether or not I can sell my analog photos. Can anyone help me out here? I use a very high end photoscanner, so when it comes to quality of the image there must be no problem whatsoever.
Here it is 2013 and these may sound like a crazy questions: 1) Like many photographers in my age bracket I've got many thousands of slides sitting around. Some would seem of value - in some cases only historical. You know like photos of Silicon Valley in the 1980's or countries that are no more (GDR, CSFR etc.) In the past I've submitted successfully a handful of film scans to Alamy. But as best as I recall they were all medium or large format transparencies that were drum scanned. Large and medium format drum scans still outperform digital cameras I think, but not so with 35mm. I no longer have access to a drum scanner. Anybody have any luck with bulk slide scanning? I don't want to waste too much time or money if they won't make it through QC. There are some services that will scan shoe boxes of slides for cheap LINK- I think they get sent off to India and scanned in Nikon scanner (?) But I don't think my slides from the late 1980's through the 1990's might not work as they often were grainy, nor were the lenses they as sharp as my present digital kit. If anybody here has recently submitted slide scans, did they make it through QC? Would they have made it if they were original digital files? 2) I on rare occasion still shoot large format black and white film. I process and print myself, and for that I assume I could get a good scan from a print. Does anybody else out there still submit monochrome analog images? Do they sell? Could a photobuyer find them in the Instagram age of faux keywording with terms like Polaroid, cross processed, Lomo, Velvia etc used to describe digital images?
