Did you make any new year's resolutions, photographically or otherwise?

in the seven years you have been on EPZ, in which field have you progressed the most and which one is still pending to learn about?

Hi Devlin, I don't really suffer from stress so I don't have a stress buster as such. I do enjoy going for a walk on my own along the seafront or on the South downs (or pretty much anywhere really), just me and my thoughts which I find quite relaxing.

Nothing photographically, but I have put on a stone this year so my intention is to lose that, boring I know.

Luis, I'm not really sure I have progressed, I was pants then and I'm pants now Tongue

My biggest downfall is not practising enough. Perhaps I should change my new year resolution to practice more.

I would like to be able to offer more critique in a manner that helps people but this is also something that needs practice and an understanding of what you can do.

I know the feeling! So - does that mean going to the gym/doing other sport or eating less? Smile

Hi Graham

You have several black & white shots in your pf, including the excellent cat images. Most people wouldn't have considered mono as a choice for these shots, so what made you go for it in this instance, and do you prefer B&W to colour as a general rule?

I can go out with the best of intentions and take only two or three shots or I can take two hundred or so, but invarably very few of them come out as I envisaged. Therefore I do tend to delete an awful lot of my pictures. I then get disheartened and will not pick up my camera for a couple of weeks. So I am not prolific in the sense that I am constantly taking pictures.

I think the biggest reason though is that I just do not think my pictures are good enough but this comes down to practice and motivation. Both of which I can improve upon, but ultimately I believe that I haven't got 'the eye' like some other people have.

Hi Kathy

The BW cat shots were not really an artistic choice in the sense that I thought they would make good subject matter, it is more the fact that my colour vision is quite poor and I find it difficult to replicate what the colours should be in post processing without making a hash of thimgs. However when I posted the first of the moggy shots in BW, Pete gave me an HC so I figured something must be ok, I subsequently posted a few more, but you can only post so many BW images of a cat.

Graham,

Another way to lose weight is to come for amble across the South Downs week-end after next Wink

Do you still have the B&W card ?

I already knew the reason for the B&W interest but in a way is that a distinct advantage.

Now for a couple of questions

Did you take B&W negatives, do darkroom developing / printing before going digital and did you use the orange, red etc. filters.
Can you replicate the filter effects with the software you are using to process the RAW files ?

Jeff
