Is there no stopping Da Fredcritter?

I kinda figured that once I got started, things would just roll right along. I guess I was right.

Anyway, here's the tap dance about this one: Sara had seen the posterized photo I'd done with mizzlaurajean and she was hoping we'd get one of her we could do that with. This one looks promising…

Hey Kids! Don't forget to *click* to see the whole album!

Good to see some momentum on this!

Using the numbering in the album, I do like #3 quite a lot, and 5-9 is growing on me, particularly 8 and 9 at the moment. It looks a little unsharp and definitely grain to my eye, though.

This one, #11, might be my favorite so far. The posterization is emphasizing the graininess, though, which is not something I'm much in sympathy with.

Thus once again proving that you and I are different people. Me, I love film grain—it's one of the reasons I've been hesitant to embrace digital photography and while I'll undoubtedly retain my film camera even after I've bought a good digital camera.

This treatment is, oddly to my mind, giving her eyes some depth. (I would suspect the poserization would tend to flatten.) This isn't as striking as the one you did with mizzlaurajean but I think it's moving in the right direction.

Yes, the posterized photo of mizzlaurajean is amazing—I do believe it's among my best photos and is certainly a favorite of mine (and not just because of the subject…). It rather suggested that treatment all by itself—given its already strong offsetting black and white quadrants—and it only gets better with the application of posterization. (It was, in fact, a photo Sara specifically mentioned and said, "Oooh. Can you do one like that of me?")

Hmmm. It seems I haven't posted that one (except for giving it to mizzlaurajean to use as an LJ icon). I guess I'll have to rectify that soonest. (I'd do it now, but a quick check of my hard drive reveals that I've probably archived it off to disc somewhere; I'll have to find it before I can post it. *sigh*)
