Very nice :) Love the last "projections" one

1. Allow users to click on the black squares representing each photo
2. Add a page of thumbnails
3. You need a proper back button on the pages. A good website design means people don't need to use their browser buttons
4. Add big pics for desktops :)
5. Add some pics of your wife. At night. With no clothes.

Very cool indeed!!

Desktops pics please!

Is that as they came off the camera? how did you get the colours to stay that true? or did you photoshop them? :)

I'd be absolutely gutted if I lost ANY of my photos, never mind all of them. :( Was there absolutely no way of retrieving them? Liking the look of those night shots. :)

Hi Mieko, thanks for looking, glad you like it! The colours are all as they were on the night - I'm constantly surprised at the amount of different colours in the night sky!! There's an explanation (rant!) on my technique etc HERE. :)

er...one tiny problem, your site doesn't work on a Mac In Safari or Firefox. Firefox comes up and says you need a plug-in. You click to download the plug-in but nothing happens :(

Excellent work, really nice to see some original work. :D Any special techniques or are quite traditional and go with long exposures? :) What about reciprocation law? How does this affect yr exposures?

OUCH! :( I've been meaning to make a backup of my stuff for a while, will do it soon as!!

I use a variety of equipment, all the b&w stuff is shot on a hasselblad 500c/m. The colour stuff is also shot on the hassy, sometimes a pentax 35mm and more often than not a sony digital compact! It's 8 megapixel so I can get big prints (A1 & A2) from that which look spot on.

Just had a quick look at your site, some nice stuff on there - will give it a proper look when I get a chance! :)

Get a PC then!! :incheek: :D

Only kidding, I've tried it on a couple of macs to see if it worked OK and they were generally fine. I can only recommend that you download the latest shockwave from HERE and that should hopefully sort things out.

If that doesn't solve the problems your internet security settings could be the problem - try adjusting your activeX controls. Hope this helps! :)

Cheers!! In most of the photos the lighting is 'as it was' - streetlights, full moon, ambient light etc but on some (mainly the B&W) I've used handheld flash and sometimes torchlight.

Obviously reciprocity failure is not a problem with digital shots but for the film shots I just guess the exposure :D and make sure I bracket each shot. Ensures that at least one of the exposures is useable!

Just had a quick look on your site as well, again some really nice shots on there - seems theres a fair few talented photographers on VZi!! :D

i aint updated for ages (most of the images were not up to my current standard).....its more of a buisiness card type of thing....im building up a proper portfolio.....to launch a full website next year....

i might have a go at medium format next year....theres some right bargains on ebay...mams and 'blads......im curently shooting with a 350D,30d,eos 30,AV1,and my latest toy an 80s AE1.....(i love my canons.)
REALLY getting into darkroom stuff at the minute though....just learnt recentl to dev and print.......it really is magic watching images apear in the dev tray..... :) fuck nows how early photogs felt ....must have been like alchemy :eek:

on a side note ive just taken delivery of a new tripod(i use manfrottos all the time) but not really into the recent build quality/price....so i bought a SLIK AMT 700DX .....i early recommend one.....its built like a tank and has a real smooth head... :D

Aye, you can't beat film - I've not been able to shoot black and white since quitting uni as I've not had any facilities to process or print so I'm looking at getting hold of a cheap darkroom setup and put it in the attic!

I got my hassy really cheap on ebay with a 50mm lens and a back - the zeiss lenses are absoultely amazing. I've since added an 80mm lens and various other accessories to that. I've used bronicas as well which are a good introduction to medium format.

Well keep us updated on your new site, look forward to seeing it. Andy :)
