Photoshop and Gimp, exhasutive reading.
I have spent a full week reading various Photoshop tutorials and a few gimp (mostly trivial) tidbits here and there. I have hammered so many techniques in to my brain I feel like collapsing from thought exhaustion. I've become obsessed with the idea that I can achieve results I'd never have thought possible with the technical know-how to post-process images like the pros (apart from the just being a good photographer part). I'm not a purist, mostly because to me the extraction of any given moment in photo format should be capitalised on (at least in my opinion) for maximum result (result defined by personal take on image vibrance & impact).
Nikon FE2
I scored a Nikon FE2 with a 50mm 1:8 and a UV lens. I've gone photo mad trying to waste my first 36 shots so I can process them and see if I've been taking the photos correctly. It doesn't look like I'll be reliably able to save for the Nikon D90 for around 2 months, but at least I have this awesome SLR to tide me over until then !! Here's what it looks like :
Lots of old and new Photos, general update.
Fixing up a lot of old photos I never had the skill to process. Lots of new content coming in as I go over the last 3 years of pictures. Bear in mind (as I like to point out) that everything you see has been taken with a $150 Sony digicam, so there's a lot of quality issues that I can't and won't be able to fix until I've saved for my Nikon. That being said, I'm also very proud of some of the moments I've been able to capture and process with the camera I have, compartively - I think some of them hold up quite well to a professional camera product. I've also scrapped the CSS journal untill I have more time to fiddle with it and get it not
