Tybee Island, Georgia. 2007.
update: 35mm C-41 film, scanned.

UGH! What the heck?! Can someone tell me why Firefox or DeviantArt is displaying the colors of this shot completely different than the way they look in Photoshop?

:camera: CALIBRATING YOUR MONITIOR :camera:

The strip shows a range of greys from pure black to pure white. You should be able to see a clear difference between each shade of grey, ranging from pure black (left) and pure white (right).

Gray Ramp

Along the top of the strips are alternate patches of black and dark grey. If it looks solid black to you (look very carefully), your monitor's brightness setting is too low. Increase it until you can -just- perceive the difference between the grey and the black squares.

Pass this along in your journals, it will help new and old deviants view your work as it should be seen! :blowkiss:

(Thank you so much to the wonderful :iconbillsabub: for providing me this information!!) :heart:

Don't know if this has been answered, but if you have an embedded color profile, that could be causing the problem. (Also if you're in CMYK.)

Anyway, I love the colors and the exposure.

About that issue, I don't know the solution, and maybe you do by now. But PS just seems to see color in an entirely different way than how the internet likes to display them. I'd like to see how you originally intended it, but even this, looks pretty stellar. Really creatives stuff!

I think I found out that images on the web are displayed in sRGB. That would explain it, I edit my photos in AdobeRGB 1998.

I was searching through the comments to see if anyone had answered your question, but it seems like you had found it out yourself. :) I had the same problem with some photos of mine because I shot them in RAW format and the colours weren't sRGB, but now we both know what the problem is. :)

Yeah. Lame.
Apple's latest build of Safari apparently handles color profiles well, but I'm too cozy in Firefox to switch back now. :(

So how is this done exactly? I am not familiar with "fire wire" besides the cable going from my mac to my scanner. I love the long exposure stuff and want to do some more of it.

It's really fun. First, you'll need to find a large, open area. At least 150-200ft in diameter, because the sparks fly far. Also make sure you're not near anything flammable. A beach is ideal, or desert area, but grass fields can work if they aren't dry enough to catch fire (rain in the past week or less). You could do it in a large parking lot, but you might get in trouble with police..
Anyway, it's simple. Just get some extra-fine grain steel wool, usually comes in packs of 16 for like $5. Cheap. Next you need to buy some picture hanging wire. Use only this kind because it is both strong and flexible. You need it to be able to swing around like string, but not to melt in the heat. Also you'll need a lighter and some clippers or scissors.

Cut a good length of the wire, probably around 5 feet so you have extra to tie with. Tie a secure loop around the pad of steel wool, making sure it's tight enough that it won't come loose when you swing it around. Test it to be sure. Once you've got that done, make sure you've got about 4 feet of slack so it won't hit you when it's burning. You're ready to light it now. Make sure everyone is like 30-50ft away, light it, make sure it's caught, and just swing it around in big circles, probably best to practice overhead, then try other stuff. It will send tiny molten balls of metal flying which glow even after they've hit the ground. It doesn't hurt to get hit by them, except maybe on the face or obviously the eyes, and it has burned my hair before. The persons swinging it needs to be careful of it, though, because the mass at the end of the wire is VERY hot. My friend hit himself with it, luckily wearing a jacket, but he got bits of metal melted all the way through it.

Each burn lasts between 5 and 10 seconds at full, but you might still have some glowing metal afterwards.

Haha, wow, that was in depth, wasn't it? Have fun, but be careful!

Awesome! I live by Lake Michigan, which has some good beaches that would be perfect to try this out on. If any of the shots turn out, I'll be sure to send you a note. Thanks for the lesson. Can't wait to try it.
