Hubski has kind of a cult-y culture, and vote is fairly right wing, so IDK, personally I'd like to see some serious innovation. There are myriad new things a website could try.

What are you talking about?

creepyinfant  ·  3647 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Can someone give me primer on developing photos for print?

Well, test prints aren't an issue either. I need to know about the actual procedure of applying profiles for professional printing and how to correct for printer limitations.

I don't even know what to look for, though, because I never went to school for photography--even if I have to read a textbook, that's fine, but I don't know what the field is called, but I do know that I know absolutely nothing about the subject.

When I actually apply the necessary profile, the color goes flat. I don't know which mode to use, perceptive, relative or what have you and I don't know what other procedures are necessary.

It's not like I'm printing this at home from a dinky inkjet. I'm paying for large prints.

Of course the profile is important, because if I don't consider it, the printer will throw out a swath of colors. Calibration isn't the issue.

Is it known about how many users are at Hubski?

I've hypothesized for a long time that it is a mechanism to stabilize population growth, as population becomes too high, the gene manifests itself more frequently.

I don't have anything to back this up, but it's not mentioned in the article.

A lot of the romatic pianists seem to fit that description well, imo.

Franz Liszt and Vivaldi come to mind.

Perhaps if you take a slightly different perspective. I'm gonna use 12 tone to describe it, since I don't know any music theory.

do-mi-sol is 1-5-8. to transpose it, you add one 2-6-9. And so forth. That is why you are not discriminating much between white keys and black keys in your memory. Instead, you memorize simple patterns. Only six patterns to memorize all of the major and minor scales--not counting one additional memory factoid to distinguish how major and minor differ (+6)

Does that make sense?

The modern piano is asymmetrical. Make it symmetrical, you make learning scales and playing patterns easier. You shorten the length of the keyboard and increase the amount of keys you can reach by 2.

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xl7eh1_horizon-do-you-see-w...

Terence Mckenna posited something similar to the idea that we are evolving to greater abilities for imagination due to ever increasing levels of neurotransmitters/dmt. It's worth a ponder.

To answer your question with another question: Can conscious beings who do not have emotions exist?

Oh, it's just a snapshot from my tourist excursion to an alien planet.

The image of the sun is on a Tarot card from Thoth. (sun is 3/4ths inch)

Thanks. Yeah, I'm still gauging how people are reacting to them. I'm not sure what the initial thoughts are, but if it's "wtf is that?" then I'm doing pretty good.

It's a lot of materials. Acrylic paint is the color foundation, mainly. Salt, sugar, sand, glass shards, etc.

Thanks for the eyes.

Cheap/jury rigged equipment, lighting. But I'm not buying any more equipment because a. no money and b. This is good enough. Yeah, it would look amazing at 18MP, but it is a good enough proof of concept.

I literally have no frame of reference for this stuff because it just seems like it's too far out to have been done before. It's still life, it's painting, it's photography, it's alchemy.

I have plenty of ideas, but I feel like I might be burning out for the time being after hundreds of images--most still unprocessed--which I don't know what to do with. --actually, any general suggestions are welcome. Besides making images of another dimension, I have no idea what I'm doing.

Hm. Never had the opportunity to use bellows.

:\ the sun doesn't come out lately...

Nice. Looks like a structure of bricks?

Thanks for the tip :p

creepyinfant  ·  3698 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: [macro photos] Elements [album]

Yes. Yes, a large part is acrylic paint. Thanks. There are various materials used. Sugar, glass. Various application techniques, etc.
