pest174 Picked up a point & shoot I saw Daido Moriyama use for one of his exhibitions. These are some test shots I took while trying to get a feel for the camera and its settings. #nikon #coolpix #daidomoriyama 7d

pest174 I'm trying to make it a habit to carry my camera around daily; even for mundane errands. The day I took this was one of those days I was pissed I forgot my camera, and the world seemed painfully interesting. I had to rely on my phone for this. 2w
  •   pest174 @harleythr3 I gotta check it out 2w
  •   pest174 @hussshhh completely. I want to pick up a digital point and shoot Rudolfo suggested I get. He said it's the same Moriyama uses. And it's under $100 2w
  •   pest174 @lucnanuruw look at you terrorizing the public with a lens like that. Total Bond villain action. 2w
  •   lucnanuruw No, David. 2w

pest174 Happy mother's day! Been wanting to find a reason to upload this. It's my mother with my older brother and sister in Ecuador. 3w

pest174 Busted. Despite writing I hate shooting in the rain, I've been doing it all week because of the weather we've been having. Thought I'd have fun with it and tilt the camera under folks umbrellas. Top frame shows me getting caught. 3w
  •   hussshhh i thiiink the weathers better now. was this with the p/s? 3w
  •   pest174 @hussshhh with the Spotmatic. I think I left the lens on infinity and got a general read of the exposure that day. 3w

pest174 QuickDraw Dave. I'm going to try to phase out the habit of shooting from the hip. 3w
  •   lucnanuruw So Dave is your name, huh? 3w
  •   lucnanuruw What's up, Dave? 3w
  •   pest174 @lnanuruw just watching TV and craving coffee, Luciano. I've been thinking of jokes on your name, but I got nothing. Although! It does kind of sound like the name of a Bond villain. 3w
  •   lucnanuruw I look like one too. Cats and everything. 3w

pest174 Same roll, again. Didn't clean my negative properly before the scan, so you can see the stain on the top image. 3w
  •   pest174 @theresagroth thank you 3w
  •   lucnanuruw I love how you just say thank you to other people, but when I compliment your work, it becomes a whole show... Haha. 3w
  •   tomtomt What an amazing gallery 2w
  •   pest174 @tomtomt thanks! Likewise to your work. 2w

pest174 Same roll, and a single for a change. Walked into my bathroom in complete darkness, and noticed a light shining in from the building over. I couldn't stop staring at how curious the clothes pins in my shower looked. While intrigued, I rushed for my camera. The light-meter wasn't any help, so I had no choice but to guess the exposure. Handheld for 2 seconds, I wasn't expecting the image to appear at all, but it did! This is one of my favorites from the roll. 3w

pest174 More from the last night's roll, shot at f1.4 and 1/15th. Been wondering if I should continue these diptych/triptych or just upload singles. I would appreciate the feedback. 3w
  •   lucnanuruw It's really working, as I have yet to see someone else doing what you do, and I'd say that is a good thing - setting yourself apart from others. Too many artists out there doing the same thing. 3w
  •   lucnanuruw However(!), the lack of cat images is quite depressing... Which is my only criticism right now... 2w
  •   pest174 @lnanuruw that's going to have to change right away! 2w
  •   lucnanuruw Yes! Change! Yes you can! Change... The amount of cat pictures. (!) 2w

pest174 Another two from last night. Was a bit tough shooting at 1/15th, f1.4, while walking in the rain, but I'm ecstatic with the results. 3w

pest174 After yesterdays result from that drunk roll, I felt like utter shit, so I took long introspective walk home after developing. Along the way I shot, and with every shot I started to feel provoked! It was a sobering feeling to shoot with an awareness to my surroundings and find harmony with the camera again. Even while developing this roll today, I took such care of how I handled it to ever so gently agitate the film. I wish I could better word what I'm feeling at the moment. 3w

pest174 I'm done with drunk rolls. I found this roll in my fridge with illegible writing on it, so I decided to develop it today. These two frames reflect how much of a mess I was, and the entire roll looks like this. Real cringeworthy crap. No rhyme or reason to the shooting. 3w
  •   pest174 @darkscenes it always does. Like one time, after a binge, I checked my phone the next morning to find out I had ended up in 2 cabs, then the Bronx and wandered around taking pictures. 3w
  •   lucnanuruw The reason is: cats. Do it for the cats. 3w
  •   pest174 @lnanuruw I once was lost, but meow am found. 3w
  •   rayknives Haha. Been there, too. 3w

pest174 Last of the bunch I felt were worth sharing. Off to shoot some more. 3w
  •   lucnanuruw I'm betting taking the upper photograph made you feel like a total rebel-- for just a moment... 3w
  •   pest174 @lnanuruw pfft. I'm laying in bed with some flower patterned sheet, and I'm still feeling like a rebel. 3w
  •   lucnanuruw That's some serious badass shit, man. 3w

pest174 This is from a drunk roll I got to develop today. I was pretty shit-faced, and I found these stairs and the people engrossing. I stood there for an hour shooting people as they entered the subway. 4w

pest174 So, so fucking happy I developed today. Every so often I'm catching myself sniffing my hands because they still smell of fixer. I don't want to wash my hands. These three images are from today while forcing myself to finish the roll. Shot with Fuji Neopan and developed with Xtol. 4w

pest174 Despite drunk verbal bashing of the neighborhood, and feeling immense scorn towards my noisy-ass neighbors, I really enjoy living here and walking through the lively streets of Elmhurst. I've started to walk around and hold my phone at chest level while letting it record until the battery dies. These are some stills from what I've recorded so far. 4w
  •   pest174 @lnanuruw I hear you loud and clear. I'll leave the envelope with your pay and chocolates by the door.... 4w
