Do you have a preferred absinthe for the photos?

Yes, I prefer free absinthes.

Whatever has a decent louche will work. I find vertes are trickier to work with than blanches.

Because of color or ABV?

I'd say more due to color. With a verte there is a solid opalescence that requires one to continuously speed up the exposure as the louche builds, drip by drip, otherwise the detail will be lost and the shot will be over exposed. That curtain of opalescence can be seen clearly in the background of the second photo. Blanches seem less finicky in hitting the right exposure, but lack the range of colors.

I wouldn't mind a few of those framed on my wall. Nice work.

Me too, wow. Modern art in a glass. They almost look hyper-real.

Patlow, can you see the New Jersey from there? Is the United States still there?

Thanks. I'm working on making some prints available. That hyper-reality is definitely a quality of larger film formats.

Great pix.

I've always enjoyed good photographs over good paintings.

Platinum would be ideal, but unless I learn the process myself it's too expensive. Something I do want to explore though. What would also be ideal is dye transfer color prints. Those are a real rarity. I know of one only person still making those. Kodak stopped making the materials in 1994.

Here is a shot from the end of my condo's pier, of a minor league baseball team's stadium fireworks last week in Camden, NJ.

And that Bridge is the once oldest suspension bridge of its length in the USA, the Ben Franklin, of course, from 1926, I think…

Still standing!

Beautiful louche pictures. The perfect blend of technical skill, lyrical feeling, and a subject matter that makes at least this audience drool.

QUOTE(Patlow @ May 3 2010, 10:32 PM) *

I "tilt-shifted" the view from my couch, which makes everything look well, like a train platform fake.

Where did this term come from? It's a fun technique, and I've seen some great effects done with it, but isn't it just narrowing the field of focus? Where do words like "tilt" and "shift" come in?
