/P/ PHOTATO CHALLENGE 4.0 - PAST IS PROLOGUE
14 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: week30.png]
The winds of change are upon us now, I have decided to make a few permanent changes to the Challenge.
>No further camera body/lens challenges, ever, with the exception of the Compact Film Challenge, which is waiting on the arrival of the Traveling Camera on my doorstep (It's in China and garcon has it for those who didn't see the thread) This still leaves open Film Challenges of which there will be more but there will be no format-specific challenges (LF challenge, 617 challenge, Minox challenge, etc.)
>Challenges have moved back to Friday-Friday, Sunday is a pain in the ass at this point between work and putting the challenge up on the one day I have to myself to shoot and am usually out of my house and back longer than the Sun is shining in a day this time of year.
This weeks challenge, one I have been hoarding for quite some time, is the PAST IS PROLOGUE challenge.
Have you improved your photography over the last year? Learn any new techniques? This is your chance to show us what you learned....you will select one photo from your archive from 2012 and re-create it using what you have learned about photography since then.
When you post, you will post the original final processed image first and then the new image shot this week, /p/ will decide which is better and if you have honed your skills
>inb4 we all are shitsux
Bonus points for distances traveled over 100mi. to make the image
There are no modes for this challenge: this is a gauge of how much better (or worse) you are now than you were a year ago
If you have just gotten your feet into photography and have no archived images from one year ago, select something recently shot and re-shoot it. If you have spent more than a week here since then and paid any attention at all, you will have learned some sliver of information so use it to further your skills
Good Luck /p/hriends! No posting from your archives: it's not the basis of this challenge, it is the foundation upon which you build your skills.

Sold my gear. Fed up with buying new lenses, waiting for a new model that's marginally better. I just want a simple, decent, digital, prime, 35 or 50 mm camera.
In the compact zone.
I don't care of the make, the whot-hot-now.
Just a good build and besides all, takes great pictures.
I know there's not ONE answer, but give it a shot.

My dad wanted to get me something photography related for last christmas, but didn't know what to get, so he got me one of these things. The company accidentally sent me two, and turns out, I want neither of them. I put them on Amazon to sell, and for the last year, no bites. I put them in my closet, and forgot about them until pulling out the christmas tree today. Nether have even been opened up.
They will go to the first two people who email me. All you pay is shipping. I'm in Ohio (USA) if you want to guesstimate on shipping.

So, I live in Indianapolis. Once upon a time, I was walking around town. I took this very candid photo of some 60 year old woman who is probably going through a mid-life crisis, who dresses like a hipster to hide the fact that she's getting old.
Anyway, I snap the photo and walk into the mall. She follows me through the mall for about 10 minutes "ordering" me to delete the photo, saying things like "MY BROTHER IS A PHOTOGRAPHER AND HE WOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING LIKE THAT". I looked at her from the corner of my eye and kept walking. She was becoming increasingly pissed off. At one point she touched my shoulder and I looked at her and told her very sternly to fuck off, and that with her being on public property, she has no expectation of privacy.
Anyway. As far as the image goes, what do you think?
And how do you deal with these people?
