its great to see those protests all over america. sadly nothing is gonna change for you guys. stay safe.

True and true. SF has been having it's fare share of protest with some being wild and some being mellow. This was a mellow one. Started by a Jewish organization to show that other races and cultures care. I just accidentally ran into this while going to the 43 Magazine show.

I just started freelancing for a newspaper so here are some of the first photos I took for them at a Baltimore march:

^^^That's rad man. I am not street photographer (not even sure what I am) but I still don't have the balls to really go up to people and take their photos. Yesterday when I shot my protest photo, there were tons of cops but but didn't want to mess with them. I hardly got any portrait style photos because of it, so I had to stick with the group shots thing. Cool to see another person shoot the same type of thing and get so much more out of it.

congrats josh! plus, that shot is fucking amazing.

i have the same problem with street photography as you, fong. i hardly ever get shots where people actually look at me or something, i always feel so weird about that. its slowly getting better since i am shooting lots of events lately, but it takes time.

im in the same boat with the street photography thing. i felt like i blew a really sick opportunity last week. i had to go to this concert venue to pick up my cell phone that i lost their the week before. i got there around 4pm and there were a ton of juggalos line up outside for a show, painting each others faces and slamming faygo. they were going crazy and the doors werent going to open for a few more hours. i was walking by thinking that this whole moment would be great to photograph, but i didnt have the balls to go up to anyone and ask if i could take their photo.

It was mellow but I got there at the opening. It's really just all the photos in the mag but printed on nice paper and blown up. Really sick stuff and would have loved to buy one but it's just out of my price range now ($350-400). But the mag is just as good to have as an art piece. Some local rippers there from Ben Gore to Jebari. I appreciate the work that Allen has done with his mag but just was there for like 30 minutes and cut out.

Thanks so much everybody! And thanks so much, Stefan. That was a photo where I took it, checked my screen, and knew I had a good one. Such a good feeling.

I'm really stoked on the freelancing gig. It's a very laid back paper in Baltimore and they have a lot of "weirder" stories so I'm really looking forward to that kind of stuff.

As far as the rally photos and street photography, I really think events like these are perfect opportunities to learn how to get over the awkwardness that street photography can bring. I'm a very shy person when I'm working my way up to photograph someone, but when I'm shooting photos at an event where there's an expectation of getting your photo taken, it's so much easier. People understood that the media is their ally in these marches so they let their guard down. I've been at all of the recent major marches in Baltimore so far and people are starting to recognize me as someone who's there just to get their message out in photos and I'm becoming more relaxed when photographing.

Just take these opportunities to take photos where photography is expected and it'll get much easier, I swear. Bringing it to the street, without an event, can definitely be much harder. Approaching someone for no particular reason other than to capture their image can make a lot of people uneasy. It's all about making your intentions known (if it's a portrait). If it's just a candid street shot, I'll usually just give a little nod as a thank you or a respect thing or whatever. It usually works, but in the cases it doesn't and people get upset, fuck em. It happens and it's part of it so don't let it get ya down.

JB, the Juggalos thing sounds awesome to me haha. I've actually thought about even going to the Gathering because I think the photos would be incredible and I honestly think most Juggalos would be down with it. Each time it enters my mind, I always remind myself that I'd probably kill myself within the first hour there.

our office just bought a nikon d5200 and i took it out today for a test run. i did normal edits on some of the building shots i took so that i could show my boss, but these were a few of shots i took and edited just for fun. not a camera id ever buy, but not bad to have around the office.

Sick view of the China Banks. It makes me feel like Joe Valdez.

Some prints I've made these past few days. I forgot to dust the darkroom scanner before I used and it took me a godawful time to digitally dust it back home. Lots of hair still...

Yup. Confirmed. The next camera I buy is going to be an xpan. Can't get enough of those shots, Matze.

In light of all the protest shots in here (CRD, Fongstarr.: both of your stuff has been fuckin' killer), I thought I'd post this short video I shot at a protest here in Birmingham, AL, last week. I only took a few hours putting it together and everything was shot within about an hour, but I think it turned out alright (aside from the interview audio and natsound, which are kinda rough in spots -- the downfalls of running and gunning by yourself). Anyway, here it is.

And here are a couple snaps, too.

So incredible, DMH. I really liked that. I really need to start shooting video. It's part of the reason I got my 5D Mark III, but haven't done any video yet.

Got to walk the halls of The Baltimore Sun for the first time tonight because I shot some photos for a small local newspaper they own. It was incredibly cool to be walking past all of these amazing photos on the walls from the past 3-4 decades. Really nerdy, but it gave me chills.

Last week, I shot some photos for the paper of a block in Baltimore that's famous for putting up these over-the-top Christmas lights and decorations. Here are some of the portraits:

I've lurked this thread for a while now, but never contributed because all I had was my phone's camera. I finally got myself a little something: a Canon Rebel T5 (got it for a steal with 3 additional lenses). I still have a lot to learn, but it has been a great experience so far.

When I got it I couldn't resist just wandering around my place and snapping photos of what caught my eye. I'm just posting a few now, but I'll definitely be back with more! Props to everyone else too. There is a lot of great, inspiring work in here.

Do you any of you guys have tips on where to get black and white film developed? I shot a roll, but CVS said they didn't even have a place to send it out to. It's Kodak Tri-X 400 B&W if that helps any. I don't know if there are any legit photo places around where I live either. There's a darkroom at school, but I'm home for a month, and I would have no idea what I'm doing anyway.

i would say just wait till you go back to school and do it yourself...you're either gonna have to find a local lab (which is your best bet) or use a mailorder service (thedarkroom.com, fromex.com). black and white is not hard to do, and its unnecessary to spend money on IMO.

just watch a youtube video on loading a spool and read a bunch online, maybe ask someone at your school to watch and be there to help. If you like BNW photography the learning experience is worth it.

Yeah, I think it would be pretty interesting to learn how to do it, so I may just wait. But thanks for those websites if I do end up taking the easy way out.

i've been using super 8 cameras for a while, just filming b-roll stuff/parties and now i'm thinking about buying a 16mm but i've never used one before or know anyone that has. anyone here got any experience with them? ideally info on bolex's as they seem to be the standard and good value for money, i know greg hunt certainly used them filming mind field and is still using it for the vans video.
