    This was last summer. The photos were shot my friend's cottage and Old Montreal with 200 ISO film that expired at least a decade ago on my parents' old Ricoh SLR. No post-process editing was involved.


    Disregard the white lines - they're due to my scanner.

    Very nice, but a lot of these photos shouldn't have been taken.

    What I mean is that some of these pictures are practically pointless, showing really nothing of importance or beauty.

    Ex: Picture of what looks like pigeons wandering.

    Well, I'm not a tourist. I don't really take pictures of the monuments around town. Sometimes, the most mundane objects of them all make good pictures.

    I'll admit some of those random pictures look good, though. Not expecting the world from a couple of photographs.

    Helvetica son, You have an opportunity to do big things. Your photography is not far from professional, Nothings wrong with taking pictures of random things as others stated that's how it begins. Keep it up.

    Oh and what state are you in? Sunny a'f.

    Montreal, Canada. I'm not sure where my friend's cottage is, though. Somewhere up north.

    Very nice pictures, none of them are taken in a bathroom and is a photo of your self so do not take what "Recover" said to heart. I do not understand why he says that a lot of these should not be taken, it make no since to me some of the professionals take random pictures and you may never even see it.

    Random pictures are the best actually I find they not only give you the opportunity to practice but also there is the chance to find that great picture you never expected.

    This is known, I have seen my boss try to hire programmers and graphic designers and all sorts and when it comes down to it sadly enough, they only know how to to one thing or are very inexperienced in the work they are trying to do, and trust me I haven't even gone to college yet and Not to boast or anything of the sort but I know more than they do my boss tells me to do something even if I do not know the programming language by the end of the day I would have it done. This is the thing most people do not understand when they go to college or university is because they feel that just because they spent the time and money they are guaranteed the position, well just to say fat chance, it Just looks good on your resume your always tested.

    This is just an example to give you a real life experience to any one that say these pictures are not worth taking.

    Practice make perfection even if you do it as a hobby

    Edit: Canada eh? lol maybe one time i should drive over from Toronto and hang out or something :py44:

    They are all fabulous photo's. Although this one, [​IMG] Seems as if you're trying to release something, from your anus.

    The double exposure needs some work, but nice reel.

    Not bad, I do like some of them, just a personal suggestion, I like more photos that are taken from a far, in the picture you took, most of seem as to you got pretty close to them. Maybe either ''zoom-out'', or back up to get a wide spread of the picture.

    Other then that, good job :)
