NO TOUCHIE!!! NO EDITING ALLOWED!

Anyone care to share?

Photos that they think don't need adjusting other than size? It doesn't matter what camera. Film (any format), DSLR, P&S, pinhole, etc...
Any image that came out decent. The first time, or no time at all.

When I shot film (pentax k1000, and canon eos elan ,usually manual), I was satisfied with many prints that were done by services. We had a darkroom, but who has the time?

I was having trouble finding a thread that was for photos straight from camera without post processing. I understand that one may need to transfer photos to a computer to upload and share. I am looking to see if anyone is happy with their untouched files.

NO EDITING WHATSOEVER. I will start with an unedited phone pic that got the Daily Dozen on National Geographic "Your Shot".

It was my first pic uploaded on a site that more than a handful of people would be able to view, but it is still inspiring and causes an emotional reaction for some people.

That is what got me wanting to take photos again after a long break.

I started working for Qualex (a kodak developing company) just as digital was starting to show that anyone could do what some of us could only do in a darkroom, with a click of a button, no less! I was discouraged and no longer had interest in my hobby. Processing and viewing snapshots all day can really deter some people. :-(

The only things that were nice about that job to me, were: giving advice on what lighting and how to make the best of the film, (*which is discouraged), and the competitive sales rates. I was lucky to get the job with my experience. They really wanted salespeople.

( *Explained: Higher filmspeeds were more profit, they preferred to hire inexperienced people so they can tell a customer that all their problems were from purchasing film speeds under 400. "Buy higher film speeds and your pictures will come out better!" LOL! )

We know that isnt' the case when you know what you are doing and don't want grain or noise!

If you purposefullly want grain for effect and moodyness, or need the speed for fast moving objects or low light conditions, that is great!


Your photo doesn't have to mean anything to anyone but yourself. However, I would love to know why it means something to you. Please write a little something about the shot, even if it was just pure luck! Some of the awesome ones are!

Hmmm... I have lots of images that have no or minimal processing other than to convert from raw to jpeg but if I would have been shooting jpeg, these would be pretty much straight out of the camera other than cropping to size.

I was under the impression that jpegs are images that are post processed by the camera from RAW data. Can RAW images that are imported but only treated with an import pre-set be included as this would take them up to the same level as jpegs?

Only asking as Scatterbrained said "I think you may have just opened a hornets nest. . . . . .. " and someone has got to poke a stick into the hornets nest to get them started.

:p

Personally, I like the spirit of the competition so good luck with it.

Pre processing maybe? ;-)a
I guess it would be no different than having your film developed and printed by a 1 hour photo machine. We preset and adjusted those as well. Different operators have different preferences and it is evident if one prints from the same negative on 2 machines.

Here is another one that I like that was just the B&W setting. I like it because it was my daughter's birthday and she was impatient with me about having to sit for it. I think it came out nice after the hard work of getting the shot. She just wanted to go to Chuck e cheese already and was making faces to mess the shots up. lol

While I was recently in Siena, Italy, there was a Steve McCurry exhibit at the Santa Maria della Scala museum, as advertised by this large poster. There was also a local art class working on an assignment in the piazza, and this young lady was one of the students. To me, she looked very similar to the girl in McCurry's famous Nat Geo cover, and her juxtaposition to the poster really struck me.

No post processing is a term that always requires more explanation, since all digital images must be processed. . .same goes for film. Otherwise, it's called a negative. So, here's a specific question. If I have a Lightroom preset that's applied on import, is that considered "post processed" by your definition? It's going to do things like adjust contrast and sharpness, apply sharpening and noise reduction. . .you know, things the camera does when it applies a picture style to create that "unprocessed" jpeg. With memory card sizes and speeds these days, it is extremely rare that I shoot in anything other than raw.

Thank you. I took over 3,000 photos on my trip and this is the first one I've posted anywhere.

That is fine as I tried to communicate in post #7. If it came up on the screen like that, even if something is preset, you get what you get and you don't/didn't throw a fit. :lol:

I like shooting in RAW and only have the DPP for processing at the moment. It doesn't show my images exactly RAW, but whatever was set on the camera. That didn't work to my advantage last week when I forgot to change my white balance setting from tungsten and took a load of daylight photos. All the outdoor daylight photos were so blue! :mad: All of the ones worth looking at had to have WB adjustments. :rolleyes:
