Digital Darkroom

Posted 05-10-2008 at 08:58 PM by Ari

I know I said I would keep posting here, and I haven't forgotten.
So a couple photography related posts for the few people that read the blogs section.


Digital Darkroom

I have expressed dismay before about how digital is treated by the general public, how 'I did it in photoshop' has some bad connotations, including the idea that the effect is easy or the person is a bad photographer and how all of this isn't new to the world of photography.

Like OMG I like totally died in a protest and stuff.

Posted 10-28-2007 at 10:25 PM by Ari

Yesterday I walked in the anti-war (and apparently pro-palestine) protest in SF for a class field trip (to take pictures of the protest). As if people were confused on SF's position on the war.

Lots of angry people shouting over microphones with people carrying premade signs (handed to them at the rally place) behind them repeating what they were told to say. That doesn't sound too cynical, right?

I participated in the "die-in" on Market street. Where everyone...

'Digital Enhancement' and selling prints

Posted 10-12-2007 at 02:55 AM by Ari

Every so often union square has an art show where set artists sell their works from paintings to sculptures to photographs, in general it's setup for the tourists. There is always at least one photographer with signs above every easle "Printed from negative film, not digitally enhanced." Which both irks me and makes me laugh. It's basically a sales tactic taking advantage of general ignorance.

Most people (those that still remember film) are used to pushing a button and...

Bungie to be Free

Posted 10-09-2007 at 03:17 AM by Ari

Not a photography post but some may have heard Bungie, the makers of the famous Halo series will be "spun off" by Microsoft into their own company (as if they were a microsoft creation to begin with).

My one and only serious online gaming addiction came from playing Bungie's Myth the fallen lords and Myth II. RTS games that were tactics based instead of resourced based (Warcraft II being a big hit at the time). Addicted enough that I ended up being a Bungie.net Admin patrolling...
