In the world before digital fotos, do a filter with the colour for the background in front of the camera. do a filter with opposite colour in front of the flash. Where the flash is strong the filters eleminate each other- neural colour- Background the flash filter has less effect as the camewra filter and so the background is coloured.

 

Was fun to try out effects with filters and black paper, for key hole like effects, colour effects, ... Of cause all can be done with software now.

Welcome back Sil! They two pix are great, are you using photoshop to finish off the photos? How did you get the good color difference tween the women in the back and you in the foreground.

 

lol, get in the front of the pic more often, yer a great ham!

 

:P

I can't afford Photoshop. I am using Two Corel products, Aftershot pro and Paintshop pro X4. I always shoot with single point focus, spot metering and pretty wide aperatures. I don't really like group photography so I am trying to single out one person in the group, letting the others get underexposed or overexposed.

 

That shot also had some digital magic done to it that I have saved as a preset called 'The Henry Way' :4rofl:

 

Thank's for the warm welcome.

Hey everyone!

I'm still here in Bethesda, the weather is awesome, and sleeping in late is just a blessing. They have a small mini-lake here in behind their condos, herons, ducks, geese (nasty!) and leaping fish! So much real life... I'm scared!

 

Something to be said about the placid ideal life of greened area...feel so sleeeepeeeee :P

 

Here's a pic snapped of my and my mom just as I flew in on that night, good times

I seem to have a musical instrument in my hands in every pic. Nor am I ever looking at the camera.

My father and I at his mother's 90'th birthday, sad to think she is still alive while my father passed away 10months ago... if I may quote Lord Theoden at the grave of his son. "no parents should have to bury their child..."

Setting up camp on one of yearly hunting trips, when my dad has finally decided on the camping spot, there will only be a tree, by the time we are settled, it is a luxury camp, and when we leave, the only thing we leave behind is the same tree that was there when we arrived...

the tent and Gazebo is not there for sleeping in/under, we sleep next to the fire and under the stars.

Nice pics guys :)

 

Probably never ever upload one of mine...would probably break the forum :P

 

It's funny how subconsciously you'll make a mental picture of someone by listening to them (especially a dj on a radio station) or by reading/texting with them. And when you finally see the person it's never ever close to what you envisioned. Except for Brad....I totally saw that lightning bolt coming lol

I tend to picture people as their avatars. Knuckles, for example, is obviously a floppy golden retriever sitting at a computer.

Threads come back alive, Facebook has not taken us down yet!

I remember when this thread went up years ago, Ogame was the thing then, and everyone found it novel to have a place on the net to have picx... who woulda thunk it

All these new posts up got me to look up the community in pix, I've seen most a ya's, but Flix, finally great seeing who I had envisioned in my head, musician!

Theuns, is there anyone in your family that does not have blonde hair! :lol:

:dance:

Ooh, great pics, trips and stuff are a good idea for photo posts. Let's see if I can find some where I'm actually smiling/looking at the camera.

Well first, here's my mug. Funny thing is I NEVER wear my beard like this, but I liked the look enough to snap a pic of it to laugh about later:

I actually look like this, with just a goatee, like 99% of the time:

Anyway, some interesting places I've been:

Glastonbury Tor, England. That was a looooooooong climb up there

Theuns, is there anyone in your family that does not have blonde hair! :lol:

:dance:

Yes. My father had pitch black hair, but as soft as silk, his brothers and one sister also had black hair. My moms sister and brothers had brown/ black hair. My moms natural colour is like mine. I got the colour from my mom and the type of hair from my dad. Even now some of my aunts and uncles and old family friends call me a "sybokkie" directly translated means a silk deer...

 

It is great to see all the pictures. Just waiting for knuckles to post one or two...

And what do you picture me as with my avatar pic?

Six-headed being? LOL. Honestly as a Dryad woman. Didn't even register that you were male until I saw these pics in this thread (even though it's in the info there, that's the power of avatars, at least on me!).

Thanks, it's actually a string bass, the cello's big brother.

 

Guitar and bass in all their forms, orchestral strings, banjo, mandolin... pretty much any instrument with strings I can give at least a decent show.

This was gonna be me someday:

That is a incredible talent. took piano lessons when I was a kid, and could do great "trix" with speed and could perform well...but my sight reading was always poor, and I hated the theory then... musical aptitutde didn't come as easily to me as others, I guess like you who can just "feel" their way to instruments! :dance:

God, this has always been my favorite part of this forum. I can slip in quietly and see new pictures of everyone. Not sure when I was here last.

I was looking through my things and found my old copy of Scared Gold....

Not much into gaming these days, unless you count Candy Crush.

But, since this is a picture thread.... Now I'll warn you; I don't have many current pictures that haven't been twisted in some way. But here is one, I believe I took it in December when I was making cookies for my kids.
