Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "The Camera Made Me Do It 2"

Description
: We all take photos of stuff that is just... odd. Stuff that "normal people" don't notice and certainly wouldn't photograph. We take these pics because photography is on the front-burner. And some of them just might work. This should be the place to show the stuff you shoot that no one sees otherwise.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or Farktography.net (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.

I took a photo of a fern on slide film. I then projected that photo onto model Jessi June and took a photo of my photo on a model. I swear, the camera made me do it.

Close-up of a huge Ref's whistle sculpture - at Disney World's sports themed hotel. This is in cross-eye 3-D format. Cross your eyes until you can see it stereoscopically. It may take a bit of practice.

I've been photographing the deer on my property pretty much non-stop for the past 3 years. They did not like where I stuck the camera for this series.

I am obsessed with taking pictures of bicycles that have been abandoned because some part of them that is necessary for function as a bicycle has ben stollen.  These are three of my favorites.

In Edinburgh, Scotland.  Just a really shiny sign to an upscale hotel that I shot without aiming as we hurried by on our way to the castle.

1. I found a leaf I thought was pretty.
2. I had just bought a shiny black tile with little sparkles in it so that I could put stuff on it and get cool reflections.
3. I wanted to play with macro photography for the first time.

Add an LED worklight, and this is the result.

My wife & I were heading to Hawaii, and our plane was following the setting sun, giving us a prolonged view of the sunset. The colors were incredible, so I fiddled with settings trying to capture them with the camera. I'm not sure I really got it, and the picture has no real focal point, so I don't think it would work for any other contest. Saturation and levels have not been adjusted -- this is as the camera took it.
