•   underwoodtuff I dunno about this one.... 5d
  •   pest174 @underwoodtuff yeah... I'm actually on the fence about this concept. Didn't really come out at all as expected. 5d
  •   underwoodtuff What were u thinking? (((Not judging))) 5d
  •   pest174 @underwoodtuff it was a concept around the word "holding". Wanted to include folks holding items of comfort/personal. Framing is different than intended. 5d
  •   underwoodtuff I liked it. Carry on....if you took a pic of me holding something that comforts me it would be a bowl of Mac n cheese! Lol 5d
  •   sinandnancy Its cool, different . 5d
  •   _yukie.s I didn't notice when you took this 5d

pest174 Hitting the streets again, hopping around the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens. Last week my camera strap snapped, and it's easily the best thing that could have happened. Like the compulsive smoker/drinker I am, if I constantly have the camera in my hand; I'm constantly shooting. I'm roughly shooting 1-2 rolls in a few hours, as opposed to the 1 roll a week. 2w

pest174 Pretty beat. Emptied and cleaned the apartment to create this makeshift studio. Headshots anyone? 2w

  •   deniseghorton What? 3w
  •   pest174 @deniseghorton no tv shows for you. 3w
  •   kinnyxrose Out of all of them. This one has to be my favorite. When you photograph industrial like environments I feel like you really capture them the way you see it and because of that it tells a story. 3w
  •   wmacgyver Love this one 3w
  •   kelvinzliu You've got a very unique set of photos. Very nice 3w

pest174 A few post ago, I mentioned I wouldn't shoot my subject no farther than 5 feet. I've been consistent with it. I believe this shot was about a foot away from a stranger on the train. Also, the film used is roughly a decade old, so it's a little discolored. 3w

pest174 Still playing around with double-exposures. I think I'm going to dive in and try to get my first zine out this month. I'm going to collaborate with a childhood buddy (coincidentally his face is on the left, and I'm on the right). It'll include his poems/writings along side my photos. Maybe this would be the perfect cover for the zine. 3w
  •   pest174 @stain377 also, do I tighten the roll after each shot, or do I let it slack. Things like that make a difference. Noticing the space between the frames make a difference. 3w
  •   stain377 Yeah, that's the best you can do. That's what I meant by editing, especially when the frame lines are off. I used an old Brownie that could be advanced as much or little as I like. Controlling the frame is the hardest part. Because throwing stuff out is easy, right? 3w
  •   pest174 @stain377 hahaha. Sorry, lately, the shots I took intoxicated kinda ruined the roll. My ultimate goal is to make a seamless double-exposure panoramic roll from frame 1 to 36. Drinking or not paying mind really hinders that. 3w
  •   stain377 Hey, that's what I did with the Brownie! Paying drunk attention will still get it done, just drunkier. 3w
  •   stain377 It's easier with 24 exposures 3w
  •   pest174 @stain377 hahaha. 3w
  •   lars_vontrier How did you do it 3w
  •   pest174 @lars_vontrier it's a double exposure on film 3w

pest174 Flipping happy I was able to recover these images. Up the contrast, gave it the classic b&w treatment, and now they're ready to print. Also, left one is my take on Rembrandt lighting, and the right is split/edge lighting. 4w

pest174 3 hours of studio time, anxiety at a high, I'm sweating like a pig, and what should have looked like a homage to Irving Penn's photograph of Truman Capote resulted in 200+ corrupted images. This, this right here is why I still stick with film. 4w

  •   derrickespino @pest174 I'm so thankful to find this ig. You have inspired me. Today was my first day out shooting with my contaxg2 which I have had for about 3 years now, (traded a rickenbacker guitar for it and about four lenses).. Was nervous about trying to capture images and losing them due to my ignorance. But you have to start someplace. Today I did my best. Let's see what happens. Your stuff is great. Keep it coming. 4w
  •   pest174 @derrickespino that's awesome to read! I know exactly what you mean about losing images, because as of lately, I'm in the same position. I was a mess on the last shoot I did. Just keep shooting. It'll build a Hell of a lot of confidence, and with that confidence. 4w
  •   pest174 @the_official_triciamodelz to an extent, it can be, but when used to cover up mistakes on a shoot; that's just incompetent. 4w

  •   ankurjraj Innovative and breathtaking! 3w
