    james_emile:the impossible is some people in the UK? that used to work for polaroid and they bought some machines and are making film again. I'm not crying about not having any for a 600 series or sx-70 polaroid but it's cool that they're starting to do 8x10 and 4x5 films.


    They're in new york, they actually have a gallery space/store front up too, they sell some rad shit there as well as their film. They were selling some artists handmade cameras at one point, not sure if they're still there: http://altsnotdead.tumblr.com/post/1044547038/arunas-kulikauskas-also-known-as-akulis2-on

    Sorry, I haven't updated that blog in far too long.


    Have you or Baumann checked out any of the 20x24 stuff at all?

    Additionally, sorry James, I don't actually think I know you.

    I'm fairly new to the forum, haven't even posted in the introduce yourself thread. :x
    but actually I'm a freshman at Massart planning to major in photography so next year I believe I'll get to use one of the 20x24 cameras!

    Rad, I'm kind of new to the forum as well, don't really post on here much, nor care to read much on here.

    I was referring to the 20x24 studios in new york, also kind of connected to "the impossible" photographers. Which massart course has the 20x24?

    one teacher at SMFA has a butt load of large format cameras that he apparently loves to show off too. JP, you'd probably know about this.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    Ah haven't heard of those.
    This is the course:
    MPPH406 Polaroid 20X24
    This course is centered around using the specialized Polaroid 20X24 camera. Students work directly with the instructor to create work based in the studio. Students will learn lighting and collaborative techniques unique to the Polaroid.
    Prerequisites: MPPH260 or MPPH261 or permission of instructor

    Yo, that course sounds awesome. I'm taking part time classes at mass art starting the 24th, so I can finish up my bfa, and get the fuck outta boston. I wish I could take that course as continuing education.

    Craig, I don't know that teacher actually. I was there almost 6-7 years ago, and did mostly film making stuff while I was there. I'm not a fan of cookie cutter photo courses, so I avoided them.

    this is true. you can shoot them until they move into an area where they are seeking privacy.

    you can legally shoot anyone or anything that you can see so long as you are STANDING on public property unless they are in a place where they have a reasonable expectation of privacy. that is to say, the line starts to get a little fuzzy when you are shootin into someone's home while standing on the street...though it is technically legal, ethical considerations obviously start to come into play.RIDE METAL

    How about taking pictures of infrastructure and areas of interest? Say an airport or trains? I thought there were some news stories about people getting scolded for taking pictures of trains and whatnot. The whole terrorists are going to kill us all scare thingy. I have no idea, just curious.We are the small axe.

    There is a state law dealing with "peeping toms" although I have no idea how's it's been applied. If nothing else one might not want to go disseminating photos you've taken, even from public property, that show a person in their own home in some state of undress (personally I would argue that, were the subject to not close their curtains, they've given up their expectation of privacy, but I couldn't say how the courts view that particular issue).

    As for an airport, I would venture to guess that Massport would argue that Logan is not public property... and perhaps the T would argue the same thing were you in a station taking photographs. That said I would imagine they'd be more interested in asking questions about what you're doing and might be able to charge a person with loitering, if nothing else.

    ^ if you are on private (airport/mbta) property, then you are at the mercy of whatever security might be present. if you are shooting mbta/airport property from a public vantage point, than you are completely within your rights to continue shooting regardless of what security might say.

    interesting line in mbta photo policy:

    "Any person observed taking pictures on, in, or of MBTA property, vehicles, or employees who refuses to provide proper identification to an MBTA Transit Police Officer or other MBTA Official upon request; or any person observed taking pictures on, in, or of a restricted area (i.e. an area not open to the public) will be directed to stop taking pictures and will be subject to additional law enforcement action as appropriate." - (http://www.mbta.com/uploadedfiles/About_the_T/Police/Photo%20Policy%201.pdf)

    Seems like if you are cooperative and provide ID if requested you should be in the clear, if the officer isnt a dick.RIDE METAL
  14.  
    Correct... I was intending to add to what you said previously about being *on* public property when shooting. I don't think it's immediately clear to people that property owned by quasi-public bodies isn't necessarily considered public property.

    I was given some shit by transit police for taking pictures for a school project once a few years ago. I complied, but I don't really understand their objection. I wasn't being sneaky or anything, I had a DSLR and a tripod, haha.
