    Default Photo Dump Thread, (any pictures with some limits)

    I was searching and I couldn't find any thread like this so here we go.
    Post any photo (SFW only ) (not posted to the forum before / not flashlight centered) That might be of interest to anyone else. Any quality / resolution.
    Please share the story of the pictures and only share ones that you have the rights to.
    Ok, I will start off, These were taken with my cell phone at a time where there were daily thunder storms for a week in Idaho. These were taken either on the same day or one day apart late in the day. I think summer of 2015.

    Sadly, I cannot see your pictures, perhaps sharing is not enabled?

    Here is a picture of a ring that I forged, I am heating it up in this photo in order to forge it into a more circular shape.
    I promise that I have better pictures! Most of them are not as interedting as the ones I have taken with my phone though.

    ^^ nope, cannot see 'em

    What does 'SFW only' stand for?

    Here's one where I was trying out a neutral density filter to cause an action look at mid day while using a 'normal' aperature size.


    ^^ nothing special, but got the point across.

    Same day using a star filter to turn what would likely be a blown out highlights of the chrome into a keeper again in mid day sun.
    I had just received the custom made bicycle and added 36" wide Texas steer handle bars.



    ^^ again nothing special.
    But the know how obtained that day helped me get more keepers at daytime classic car shows.

    On another day with another camera again in mid day sun I took this photo of the roses on a wild bush next to the house I had just moved into. The background was severely blown out.
    The at the time Shutterbug magazine monthly challenge was to turn a digital photo you'd ordinarily delete into a keeper.


    ^^ and so it was.
    It was the background on my laptop for a couple of years.

    In another regard I had read that to hold up a leather shifter boot, using a table leg cap with a hole drilled in it, and a ziptie wrapped around the inside worked well. It did.
    I liked the way the late day sun partially lit the shift boot one afternoon after completing an electrical repair (hence wire cutters in the pic)


    ^^ I liked the lighting.
    To this day that photo is the background of the 10" laptop I use for e-manuals and keeping track of my auto restorations over the last few years.

    Here at a museum about the "Mormon Battalion" is a very old cavalry sabre.

    Hahaha!
    No, sir I did not make these. I wish I could. We saw them at a local arts and crafts fair. Would have bought one, but he wanted 400.00. Now for 400.00 I could buy a really nice custom titanium light!

    I hear ya!

    For me that is about a 1/3 of the cost of the new lathe I want.

    Yeah, I tend to depreciate the arts myself, if it doesn't do something interesting I am not interested.
    Here we have: A dusty CFL, An old comb, and some weird clouds.

    Nice sunset, I like how the light is reflecting off of the windows.
    Hey, that looks a lot like Temecula.
    Anyways, Here is a green laser fluorescing orange on some high visibility cord.

    And on the way home from work:

    Ok. So here is a Hyperspin cabinet I built that is almost complete. I just need to add the top/front markee and it will be finished and on its way to one happy person. I has about 75 pinball tables installed and about 1100 classic games.

    It was a tight fit. If I had of built this thing any smaller I would not have been able to repurpose a SFF computer and then would have had to use a laptop and then that would have meant no pinball game as they require a decent video card. The Hyperspin frontend required more configuration work than building the cabinet. Hiding the windows GUI and making everything run smooth took hours and hours.

    Enjoy!

    There are some really great photos here! I have been an amateur photographer for many years now, and I am finally getting around to taking a photography class (for fun) while working on my college degree. Part of my interest in this forum has to do with using controlable light in photographic settings, and I am very happy to see there is a section specifically for that. My photographs over the years have mostly been outdoor pictures of landscapes, wildlife, or plants/rocks, etc. All of it using natural lighting. I am now learning about using controlable light in a studio setting, and in three weeks of classes all I've really gotten is that there is SO MUCH I still have to learn, lol. Just for fun, here is a photo I took a few days ago for a class assignment; it is a photo of my service dog while we were at a local city park.
