Just finished batch 1 through the various steps of grit and polish.
Turned out to be quite a disaster.
I intentionally set out to tumble shitty rocks to see what would happen, and they ended up shitting up some nicer ones that I lumped in through the grit transfers.

My unit is a dual container tumbler which means there are I can run two batches at once. However, due to some rocks becoming too small and hence discarded, merging the batches allows the opportunity to begin another one. So some of the dark black creek rocks mixed with what I assume is some kind of quartz. Some of the quartz has black specs on it because the black rocks rubbed off onto them.
Guides suggest to match up hardness, but I'm not a geologist. It's basically a lesson similar to laundry or society.

Anyway, I've got a load of jaspers going which came with the tumbler, so those should turn out nice and shiny. I also broke up a rock stolen off a state park beach and tossed it in a batch.

Also have a hobby drill press now and poked some holes into some. We'll see what happens.
One thing you won't notice from the photos is the touch. They're remarkably smooth, almost smoother than the granite slab countertop I photoed them on, also probably a bad idea for photographing the rocks. Oh well.
It's a pretty fun passive hobby. Once a week you play in some water and see rocks develop.

I thought it was kind of funny. There's one rock in there that looks basically like any old creek rock like nothing happened to it. However it's incredibly smooth.
Anyway… there's my post.

>For English we gotta do a reading at the school poetry fund raiser thing
>"The more you read, the more extra credit you'll get"
>I'm borderline illiterate so this would help a lot
>Decide to read E. Allen Poe's The Raven

>show time and I get scared
>Read the entire The Raven, slowly and in a monotone voice, for an entire crowd of people
>It was so boring that even the parents gave me shit about it for weeks
>Still got the credit. Worth it.

I've had more positive experiences, but that is the most memorable one I can think of lol

I went to a private school as a kid and every year there were stupid numbers we had to do.
Then as a teen I had a rock band for a brief time, we did some concerts. It was fun. We even had some gigs that required going on a two hour trip, not a lot but for us it kinda was.
Then in college we had to do some skits once a year at the place I was staying at. A private dorm. I don't remember much from those but it was embarrassing shit.

trying to draw from any angles and poses of variety of objects but my subjects tend to skew and distort around despite having the exact subject for me to measure its real length…

how do you put those real length on the paper and have it follow the perspective drawn on paper?

usually with vanishing points we now have a line extending to infinity so naturally we will need a piece of those to represent the object we want to draw?

something like perspective projection drawing here i guess but i need a much straighter answer on how a "real length" is projected/drawn into perspective on the paper…

Technically good shadows but they do not help his composition, half his pics are sky with clouds while the lower half is green hills with green trees, overexposing means half the sky is burned while the hills are visible but still not that different from the exposed4sky one that has intact skies but slightly mushier yet still visible hills.
With RAW files this one wouldn't be much trouble overexposed, if anything it would be better, but because it is a Jay Pegg it is tough to edit. For those SOOC from P&Ss it is better to underexpose because at least you can pretend to salvage some shadows while supposedly being a faster shot thus probably sharper, example in pic related.
Exposing with P&S cameras is usually a different technique than for enthusiast ones with RAW capabilities, in theory they should be the same but oh well.

 No.2105

>>2098
On the contrary, RAW allows you to underexpose more because of the higher dynamic range. But with JPEG, you're better off overexposing a bit than underexposing because the shadows are tougher to recover.

I don't know man, with RAW files you can get away with underexposing often but overexposing by a bit is better because you end up capturing more color info (as colors are light frequencies) and the shadows cleaner anyways, digital is not like film because highlights do clip in pure white rather than some shades under it and visually mixed with film crystal magic (halation or something). In good DR cameras you can go both ways but overexposing enough to recover highlights rather than shadows is better plus you have better colors.

In lower end cameras where dynamic range is not that good you clip highlights much faster and shadows are not that easy to recover either, you end up having to zero the exposure or underexpose to have the whites' integrity while leaving the blacks crushed, one can either lift them which makes noise appear or up the black's shade to a gray to make it not so uncomfortable to see by some (i don't mind blacks being completely crushed to a mush if the picture is a chiaroscuro composition). Also these kind of low consumer cameras do saturate colors often to curtail some of these sensors not getting that much light info, so it's "balanced" by default.

It's all shooting styles anyways, there's different techniques which all work decent for their purposes but for the ogre doing nature shots in bright daylight i think the technique leans towards underexposing a bit. For example here's cloud recovery in the last two images:

I used an aggressive general curve adjustment for the sake of pushing this to a limit, i used two similar ones with both but due to data available i pushed it a bit more for the underexposed one.
In the overexposed one we can see burned out and unrecoverable whites yet in the exposed areas that aren't that affected with haze/horizon fog we can see great colors. The underexposed one has much better detail and while the colors aren't as good in the near areas the ones in the horizon are not that different, meaning they can be tweaked a bit to reach a similar level… still in the end they mushed a bit so the tonal difference between planes is not as good so the perceived space depth is inferior yet the cloud recovery adds a bigger element so it balances out.
In theory this can be "easily" fixed by taking two or three exposures and perhaps manually adding the good parts if the clouds moved too fast for the cPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>2106
Depends on the sensor tech too. But I'd agree that overexposure without clipping (aka ETTR) is mostly ideal. The thing is, if the interesting stuff is in the shadows and your camera doesn't have a huge dynamic range, it's better to lose some highlights than shadows. Specially if it's a Canon (not the case here) with awful banding pattern noise.

>if the interesting stuff is in the shadows it's better to lose some highlights than shadows.
No doubt, i agree completely, it's about getting that thing that catches the eye
>Specially if it's a Canon and their banding

Oh God, I had missed this post. I even went to the other board a couple days ago thinking there was no activity here lol.
I like the look, there's a slight amount of smearing with the colors but just the right amount of it so it looks almost like film halation.

Foamboard worked great after I realized I needed a big gobo and to put a snout on the flash to control spill.
Also if you're modifying the light (specially filtering colors) it's adviceable to use the fastest lens you can, to not have them firing at full power constantly. I did have to use a slower zoom at one point because my fast lens didn't fit a filter I wanted to use, but you could hear the flashes whining and taking longer to recycle.

First of all you may wonder why I draw this? well I just have 2 reasons to make fanart of this series: First I love it, I really love cartoons still show a slice of life with crude sense of humor on them, and second, I have some kind of resemblance with the pic feeling, and Im sure some of you too, if you are a fan of Rick and Morty you may notice Rick is a person that can handle everything except himself, he is a brilliant person but way too lonely that unplug from reality with science and alcohol to avoid the fact he is a sad person, and sometimes really dont see the point of keep living, and if you get what Im saying you will see lots of times its impossible to see life without the gray filter on your eyes.
Also you may notice Rick try to commit suicide some times along the series but for some reason he never get it, and not because of him, just because life or destiny avoid death from him, those persons who seen death close before and still breath will know what Im talking about. but why Rick is so miserable why an extremely smart person like him battles with the idea of end with his life sometimes well easy because his smartness mind, he really cant see lifes point because he already lived alot, he saw alot and he dosent have someone next to him to support his madness and feel how is it to feel real life, according to his creator Justin Roiland the closest character could be compared with Rick could be Dr. Gregory House, extremely smart but a miserable person, both are persons who are great characters because both are clever guys, pervs, genius on what they do, manipulative, careless about the rest of the people,bith are nihilists to the core, and both fail in love, but while Dr. House avoid his loneliness with drugs, Rick does with alcohol, both characters dont see why life is so important, and the the straw that broke the camel's back their messy lifes with love, both cant get a couple and if they do it dosent endure cuz its barley what they want in their lifes.
Also if you are a fan of Rick and Morty you will see Rick tries to commit suicide when he fails in love, and this is why I feel some kind of familiar feeling with this pic, people may think know you but the true is you can mask how you truly feel but inside your mind screams sometimes "whats the fucking point of all of this?" you know Albert Einstein used to say: "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results" and I can tell is fucking true, afterPost too long.
