How to ruin a perfectly good picture

January 24th, 2009

John has a box of old camera equipment — lenses, film SLRs, gadgets; the box usually sits untouched in the office closet. John does a lot of reading about different photographic techniques and geekery, then tries them out. Today, he did just that. He pulled out the long-ignored box o’ goodies, dusted of his Contax RTS (circa 1975), and coupled it with his much newer digital point-and-shoot to conduct a very serious experiment:

For the photo-heads out there who want to know what he was up to, John just posted about it in his second-ever blog entry.

And for other photos he’s taken (that I haven’t ruined), click here to see his site.

    There is something about this website that I find rather alluring and I would like to discover just what it could be. I bet you would love Hawaii. Your website is so awesome that my eyes starts bleeding when I look at it. Back when I first arrived to this website I thought I knew a lot about this however now I feel like I don’t know what I am talking about. Metrics do matter a lot but can’t substitute for human judgment. Can you write more about this topic?
