what the fuck did you just say vs. that’s what i thought :)

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

actually this is bullshit the color is like sucked out of these pics what the hell

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean if that's true then I can't imagine how much more infinitely handsome you are with all the colors there

@bees 🥺💚💚

@senzubean probably white balance issue? idk i know camera sensors have issues with black skin cause technology is also informed by white supremacy but

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@a_lizard well yeah but it’s like uploading them took the color down, i’m looking at them in my camera roll and they’re Way More Shinier so idk what happened, usually masto doesn’t fuck with my pictures

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean it's hard to compare this as we're probably using vastly differing displays n shit

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@a_lizard yeah exactly idk i might just turn up my saturation for posting here in the future and just mess around with it? who knows if there was a change to my instance or something idk but it is a bummer cause the original pics are super bright and nice :/

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean taking the saturation up some gets this

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@a_lizard what the fuck lmaoooo that’s intense

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@a_lizard now i’m jjst confused cause they’re def not that saturated

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean im manually fucking with them in gimp lmao

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@a_lizard lmaooo go off

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean taking the color temperature down a bit and boosting exposure is getting good results

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@a_lizard still lowkey brighter but i like this better lol seems more accurate

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean yeah it's difficult having to guess what a subject ought to look like without having used my eyes :P

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@a_lizard lmaooo i think you killed it. but yeah colors and photography and racism and everything is pretty fucking interesting

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean yeah i got into photography a few months ago and there's a lot to learn, i think getting an app that lets u shoot RAW files and goin in to edit them manually gives the best results from my experience (though i use a dslr)

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@a_lizard i feel you, i grew up learning about from my dad and yeah it’s really interesting in general. the lengths poc have to go to have their skin tone correctly photographed is bullshit

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean yeah thankfully it's the digital age now so you can correct for it, can't imagine how in fresh hell they did it with celluloid

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean @a_lizard I had that with a certain app for a while. It would like reset my edits for some reason. Do you have it with all apps/website things?

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@moiety @a_lizard no i just uploaded it straight to masto on web, doesn’t usually happen when i posted elsewhere

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean the suspicious part of me thinks it's some bullshit colorist machine-learned "image optimization" based on people lightening their photos

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean damn bean you look fucking great!

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean also masto uses some Javascript library to resize and re-render photos (was looking through this part of the code the other day for unrelated reasons). Haven't looked at the library itself but it could be that it loses something in the format conversion.

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@dumpsterqueer very interesting

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean what is missing in the image description is if you're wearing a Plasmatics shirt 😺 (are you? 😅)

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@malte yes lol technically i am

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean 😍

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean I just read this thread lol and damn racism and photography, never thought about that!

But Waitttttt!!!! Is your (actual irl) dad a photographer as part of career life? Cus my irl dad is too ​:232327:

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@felineforestmedicine yeah idk what he’s up to these days but when i was growing up he was traveling for it and i used to help him do photoshoots for weddings

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness 

@senzubean oh okay. Yeah my dad is not a photographer photographer but like a creative director type person who will do photoshoots and videoshoots for diff creative materials

selfie / eye contact / dizzying handsomeness
