    I finally resorted to getting a swab kit from Samy's the other day. I had more "welds" than a Chevy Nova going on in there, and refused to have my camera out of my hands for 10 days. Worked out pretty well.

    I ordered a swab kit late last night and I ordered the rocket blower yesterday so I will be ready for war. I took a pic this morning and it looked pretty clean. I'll find out today at the Grand Prix practice.

    Looking great PuckMonkey! Have you been finding you have to use multiple tone mapped images, or can you use 1 general tone map and then layer and mask you originals?

    Oh, just let it sit for a few months, it will weld itself

    Thanks, Poppa!

    It depends on the feel I'm trying to achieve with the image, but I have done both. The image above, for example, I used one tone mapped image to pick up the sun rays that I was able to optimize on one, and maintain the overall feel as I composited the second image that was tone mapped for the cityscape (and a third that was done for the interior). Once I post-process that image, it should all blend together nicely. For clean shots (like Glenn's amazing Getty pics, and the cool neon shots that rinkrat is going to shoot tonight ), I definitely make use of the originals.

    I'm also experimenting with using a modified black channel as a key plate, but until I upgrade my camera rig, my stuff isn't sharp enough to make proper use of it yet. But the results so far have made me a happy camper. I know it's going to do what I want it to do.

    You should be a happy camper, they look great. I really like the illustratory look to them. I think Glenn's work extremely well because the subject itself is clean and sharp, yours are great because they have a very moody, drawn look to them. It really makes me want to make some images!

    Default Sloppy borders?

    So I was getting a few images printed, one of which was the following:



    which I just threw on some sloppy border which I downloaded from somewhere to add to the feel of the image, and it got me thinking, how are sloppy boarders really made? The only two ways I know of are to take a file to your negative holder to jaggy it up and print the entire negative, or work with a paper where you have to brush the emulsion in yourself. As I only had one darkroom class in my life (using Tri-X only at that), how is a sloppy boarder like this one, which you see in a lot of these sloppy boarder packs, even possible? Or is it people are just getting creative with their sloppiness and leaving reality behind?

    From a single file...



    Here's the regular image.
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    A few pics from the Long Beach Grand Prix 2008.

    They were doing warm up laps etc and it was open to the public.
    I managed to sneak onto one of the photo towers.
