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!
