PLEASE REREAD THE RULEZ, THEY HAVE BEEN CHANGED.

I think we all know that we can all do an amazing job with photography here, so I am updating the no photoshop rule. I want to see how and what each of you do to your photos that make them unique and yours.

We have a great core of people here, and we are growing everyday. I also like the participation of the not so common members, it's just great. It is time to let us all have a peek into YOUR LIFE. That's right, no hiding or shying away. Time to let your photography show a small piece of how you live daily. This is a combination theme so pay attention. You must post at least one picture of each of the following:


YOUR BATHROOM
YOUR BEDSIDE TABLE - or nightstand.
YOUR LIVING ROOM - or the room in your house that you spend the most time in (office does not count).
YOUR FAVORITE ITEM - must be in your house/appartment/abode.
YOURSELF - we all know what one another looks like here, let's have an update.


That is 5 (five) total photos. I suggest that you all get to work ;)

Use this week's theme creatively and let's see those photos!!

As always, the Ru|3z:

Photoshopping of images IS allowed as long as you state what it is that you have done to your photograph(s). Please remember though, that this is NOT a Photoshop battle this is Themed Photography.
Let's keep the file and image size under FK guidelines (under 750 px wide).
All photographs must be related to the current weekly theme.
Photographs must be taken by the idividual posting (no stealing photos).
Use any camera (ie. cellphone, point-and-shoot, disposable) just submit!
Multiple submission are welcomed.
Photos must be no more than a week old. Take some NEW pictures people!


Have fun, get creative, post as often as you like.


Note: All images and/or photographs posted in this thread are the private property of the individual posting. No rights are given to anyone viewing this post. Use of any image posted in this thread is illegal and punishable by law, unless express permission is given by the photographer.

I believe I'll be the first to be done with all 5 photos.

YOUR BATHROOM
http://www.newwebtechnologies.com/images/br1a.jpg
Actually this is Kristi's bathroom, mine is too small to get the camera into.

YOUR BEDSIDE TABLE - or nightstand.
http://www.newwebtechnologies.com/images/ns1.jpg
Neat and tidy, had to unplug the clock as it was giving me problems with exposure.

YOUR LIVING ROOM - or the room in your house that you spend the most time in (office does not count).
http://www.newwebtechnologies.com/images/lr1a.jpg
Not done remodeling, so all of the decorations are minimal. No family photos or knick-nacks, just a ton of plants.....and a 10ft. tall avacado tree.

YOUR FAVORITE ITEM - must be in your house/appartment/abode.
http://www.newwebtechnologies.com/images/fi1.jpg
This one was kinda hard, but I have to say this was an extremely neat gift that my mother sent me for Christmas

YOURSELF - we all know what one another looks like here, let's have an update.

Scan the upper one inch (2.5 cms) of that pano, you can see the blurred seams.

Bah! No time to mess with them in PS.

great stuff E! it must be nice not have little moppets running around, as your house actually looks like grownups live there. and house plants, oh how i miss our house plants.

and for the record, i do my panos in PS too.

EVPohovich
01-26-2006, 02:55 PM
LOL, no no no.....the kids have the downstairs floor, complete with their own bathroom, bedroom, living area, and kitchen. They have their games and movies, and I have my own PS2 in the main living room (pictured above).

I actually counted the plants last night.....62 total potted plants in here. You should see this place during the summer, it's insane. We had cucumbers and tomatoes and all different kinds of peppers.....would take me two hours to water everything.

01-26-2006, 03:24 PM

Bigger, cleaner version and includes the dining room. This still isn't perfect, but it is definitely better:

http://www.newwebtechnologies.com/images/lr2.jpg

It's all of the lines in the floor and the ceiling that really give it away. And as far as the remodel goes, you can see that the trim isn't finished all the way around the ceiling and the mantle around the fireplace needs rebuilt. Then.....on to the kitchen!!!

Its a lovely little camera, I just wish I knew how to use it :p I guess I need to learn a little something about taking good photos. Where's a good place to look for resources or should I just read through the stickys?

Those are really interesting shots Carly, especially the colour photos, the depth and vibrance of colour are so insane.
