so, hi. i've been taking more photos again lately and i thought it'd be nice to have a place where we can share our photos with each other and maybe geek out about cameras. so, if you like to take photos, share them here if you like. <3

some things i've taken and made:

as for cameras, i have two at the moment. one is a kiev 88, a beautiful analog medium-format camera that i'm in love with; and a nikon d40 which has followed me everywhere. i've had it with me during my stay at the mental hospital where i've taken many many photos, so it's been with me through a lot, and i love both for different reasons. sorry if this is boring, i don't really talk this much.

so! do any of you like to take photos? share them here. i'll probably love them.

I'd like to take photos one day, but I have yet to take photography classes. I do enjoy the act of doing so, though. If I take any pictures I'll post them here. :)

you don't need photography classes, silly. that's just self-proclaimed experts telling you their opinion on what they like. just take photos, as many as you can. even if you think they suck, take more and eventually you'll get to a point where you're happy with something you've taken. you're usually your own worst critic. <3

I've got a bunch of pictures here that I took throughout the western united states last august.

Your third picture looks like london. Is that london?
I'm interested in seeing some mental hospital pictures. Also are you ok?

yes, i spent around six months there, i was being treated for clinical depression and anxiety. but i'm on meds now which aren't great on one hand but do help, so i'm mostly good again. thank you for asking, candy. <3
i like your photos! mind telling me what camera you used? also; yes, the third and fourth photos were taken during my stay in london at the beginning of last year. i'm surprised it's that easily recognisable!

Some really old images I entered into the SWPA comp in a rush. I need to actually make a Flikr or something to host them all.
Camera lens was really dirty and this was several years ago so they're pretty bad retrospectively but they're some of my most 'wow' visually impressive photos I suppose.

Feel free to PM me if there is anything I can help with!
Also if you just want to talk I'm always available.

ohh ok. Six months sounds like an awfully long time. It is good that you are mostly good.
I'm glad I guessed correctly, I would otherwise not be a very good londoner. Are you in the uk?
And those were actually taken with a tablet (a nexus 7), I apologise if you were hoping to discuss cameras. u wu

i love your photos! i used to take a lot of scenerery shots like that but they never turned out very good so eventually i went back to pretentious faux-art thingies. ^_^
what camera did you use for this? the slight dirt on the lens actually gives it a very nice atmosphere.

i'm currently living in germany, back with my family. i used to live with a friend in brixton for a few months which was a little scary but quite nice. london seems so expensive though. what part of london do you live in if you don't mind me asking? <3

I mostly lurk here but photography gets me really excited, I just like taking pictures of really pretty sites and I don't really do anything meaningful or artsy. 

I don't have anything fancy, just a Nikon D5100 with various lenses I share with my sister.

Also lovely pictures OP. I really wish I could take artsy pictures but I just feel like I can't really grasp some concept needed to convey my thoughts into my photography.

I quite like your photography, OP, specifically the technique with the blurred partial obstructions in the foreground.

I've snapped a few photos here and there as well.  I don't know that any of them turned out as aesthetically interesting as yours, but here are my favorites of the lot:

As for the camera, I took those with a Sony Handycam; more exactly, I have the HDR-CX230 model.  It seems to be more oriented toward recording video than taking stills, however, so the picture quality isn't too stellar.

i love your photos! that last picture has a wonderful atmosphere, i could never take a photo like that!
honestly, i think any photos are artsy because they all express the photographer's ideas even if it's not conscious. i don't think there's much of a concept behind it. i never have any idea what i'm doing when i take photos. <3

these are lovely! the one with the stone blocks sort of seems to capture a sense of urban decay, it's very nice. i used to take a lot of photos with my handycam back when i still had one!

and @mumu, i like the last photo a lot. may i ask what camera you used? :o

Phone (I probably still had my iPhone back then)

I'm really into urban exploration. I have way too many pictures to share here so if anyone wants to see more, I keep a blog of my travels on Tumblr:
http://wanderers-nexus.tumblr.com/

Everything i post save for some reblogs of Kyoko.AVNo's stuff is my own work ' u '
