C6 Photos: thursday


22 pictures found.

hotel lobby. The graininess and artifacts really shows here in the blacks of people's leather and hair. A median_cut noise filter seems to do a good job without smearing detail like a smooth or blur filter would. Resizing it down to 600x400 will do as much smoothing as I should need. Trid identified the people, left to right, as Rafe, Algernon, Donya, Kiria, Inar, Trid, and Madame Archel

hotel lobby again. Not much graininess, I wonder why this worked out. The man who became dubbed 'avacado man' on the far left. Algernon first sighted in the background here.

Outside the hotel. On a hunch, I cropped this photo to a 1:2 aspect ratio... and it seems to work. It's the same trick that APS uses for it's 'panoramic' mode: crop out the top and bottom thirds, then stretch out to full width. I also replaced the right part with a second photo I took of the same scene (see the jink in the white curb which I smoothed, but couldn't quite fix). The left-side jink is in the gold pillar, but you can't see it. I like the 1:2 aspect, I think I'll use it elsewhere.

1:1 aspect ratio. Works really well for these three. These three cool humans I spotted all weekend and hung with. (damnit, I remember Sable's name, but only because I had to use it ten times. Middle lady is Sable's wife... whose name is... Natalie! (thank you Astrid) from Salt Lake City, Utah. The the circuitry corset (detailed later) is sported by masque.

The party bus. Bad photo, I'd toss it but it's the only picture I have of the bus. Just consider this a token of what I've edited out. Narrin's in the second row, left side. I aughta know who's in the back row. Psyche's in the third row, right side. I never spoke to the person in the front row, so I don't feel bad about not knowing a name.

In the Karaoke bar. Crab, the bearded man in the booth was very fun and Fross looks on. Something about this picture looks... "right". Maybe composition, or the colour. I don't know, but my instincts tell me I should ask an expert what they think. Trid and Madame Archel face away, Kristalle and Crab face forward

an attempt at getting the 'rightness' of the picture. Reminds me of an impressionist painting.
"thursday karaoke artsy"
Low deail photo, but the colour is pretty cool.

Some of us left the Karaoke bar for a bite to eat. We found a pub two blocks south of the Karaoke place. This is Wendi/Artemis/Boadicea, seated for a meal. Ask her the story about 'ah, but is Fross fuckable?' story for something embarassing I did after taking this photo.

Karoke. Picture's okay, I guess. Used a flash.
"thursday karaoke who"
Karoke. Reminds me of a magazine ad, somehow. Dr. Pain, with his tounge sticking out on the far right came to C6 from Bavaria. Thick accent. Trid identified Darth, Tweakin', and Jezibel.

Oh yeah, this is the karaoke photo I'd show off. I caught my flash in the mirror (amateur mistake, d'oh), but it seems to add a bit of disco to the mix. Very proud of catching the action and the crowd. She's singing "Sweet Dreams (are made of this)"

One of the reasons I'd rather not use a flash. Everthing human has it's colour washed out. I kept it because it's a clear picture of the bar. Bottom centre is Psyche, whose colour is washed out in every photo I take of her, even without a flash. Reminds me of the Blade Runner strangeness in my C3 photoshoot. A good sign.

Washed out, but the promised detail of the circuitry corset, and a TV as proof that Karaoke happened

Masque/Donya posed for me in the hotel. I did some photo fudgery so the space between her left arm and waist wasn't lost in shadow. I'm dead embarassed I don't remember her name. She was so nice.
"thursday karaoke corset masque"
Masque with gamma adjusted. My art programs auto-gamma-correct, but it occured to me this picture might still be too dark, so I tweaked the gamma in the picture too.

The drunk bavarian. Damnit, I read his nametag three times (Macross and Artemis have reminded me it read "Dr. Pain"). This is taken just before he deep-throated a beer and the foam backspilled out of this throat and onto his jacket. Hotel parties are good.
"thursday hotel_party dr_pain"
Rafe, pretty pale Kiria in hand with one of the better t-shirts on the weekend: 'Let the fucking begin'. Poor boy *finally* found that special someone, but she couldn't come. C6 is an aphrodisiac and the boy's sex toy was at home (and he was a good boy, never fear). The red button affixed to his forehead reads "Panic."
"thursday hotel_party couples rafe kiria"
C6 is not just an aphrodisiac, it also a backrub-isiac. Inar giving, Kiria gettting, Sable and Rafe reclining. I think Rafe's drinking some rasberrry brandy.

TeeTok, masque now corsetless and breathing easy, and the two in the back row of the party bus in A00007 I aught to know. The 2:1 aspect ratio here again, but the effect is very different than in A00004. Trid identified himself and Madame Archel.

Dr. Pain tries his luck.

Ah, cute, but it was the end of the roll.
