Ron,

For your perusal produced for two different projects.

First one was a self portrait shot through a beetroot juice filter illuminated by a torch.



Second was produced by a pinhole camera experiment, I just liked the colour and the shapes.



Both from the GX10 10megapixel sensor but pixel peeping not the main aim. Not much in the way of post processing, crop and past on the red one.
Lurking is shirking.!

I can even say that people who try to have the best photo straight out of their camera are the lazy ones because they don't go through the effort of maxing out the possibilities of their digital camera

Now, Stefan. that is almost an insult. A lot of people on this forum strive to get the best result from the camera, with as little PPing an possible. That means, imho, to put their photographic skills to good use - composing. focusing, exposure. It is certainly not laziness.
Best regards

Terry - I am sure everyone realises Stefan's point was tongue in cheek! (Hence the 'wink!)

To be honest I find comments like that a breath of fresh air because the overall mentality of most people - or at least the ones that bleat loudest - on here is rather stoically anti-PP, and they do not worry about making comments that belittle people who have built PP into their workflow.

Back on topic - This is as close to 'impressionistic' that I can find (no PP here - extremely rare for me!)

On a similar vein to Pentaxophile I posted this here a while ago




There is NO PP used at all it was all done with the camer lens and nothing at all software wise.

Thanks for the hug Stefan

Terry you get me all wrong, you should read the bit above that part you quote and I must make clear it was an reaction to Edumad saying that photoshop makes people lazier

And I'm going to stop now because this off the topic I believe.

Expressionism: Any method that stresses the artist's/photographers emotional and psychological expression, often with bold colours and distortions of form.

Impressionism: Any method which tries to reflect an interest in the experience of light and colour on objects, which made colour more importnant within the photo/canvas and its effect on the subject.

Because of the medium I think photos often are under impressionism

(will dig my library to see if I can find something...)

Is this surrealism?
Not so much PP btw, only added some slight contrast.

Thank you very much, yours is great to, did you do that by turning the camera?
You can create those effects and zoom effects very easily in Photoshop you know

I know that, but it's much more fun trying it out in the field.

The hard way, so to speak.

The last shot I had like your example was actually taken with the wrong exposure and looked no where near as good.

Personally, I'm going to try to go straight from "All I shoot is bad" to "Dammit, I suck!"
Still shooting in the dark (literally and metaphorically)...

I think I'm drifting in the void between "gear faggotry" and "HDR hole". I needed HDR today and having never used it I couldn't get the K-7 to do it!!! I had an audience so I didn't want to mess about too much. I might pop back tomorrow.
Lurking is shirking.!

The knowledge curve is ok, the rest are all wrong, no way it ever goes that high. And one exposure per motive never feels better than many (for me).
