    Inky photography

    Inspired by oldfashioned-aj's recent review with some fantastic pictures I thought it would be useful to have a thread where we can share tips & tricks for photographing our ink and get feedback on our pictures. I'll start. (Please note that I am totally an amateur!) I made this photo today by a window, on a overcast mid-day using my Poco X3 NFC phone and edited it with Snapseed. I was having trouble getting the color right on Gris de Payne - it was all dark and without much of the greenish blue that I saw on the paper - until I set the white balance on the phone

    Show Your Feed!

    When cleaning and refilling one of my Wing Sung 3008 pens to give it to my son who wanted to use it in school I encountered a stubborn clear feed that would not want to give away all of its orange glory (Akkerman #16 Oranje Boven) after cleaning and even after refilling the pen with Lamy (Royal) Blue. So I was able to take the following pictures. Edit: (Was interrupted before I could add what I was going for, tsss ...) What do your feeds look like? Do you have unusual or unusually beautiful feeds? I am sure you have!
  3. We photographed some of our Montblancs recently. Since their pen design is usually a bit more simple, the photographs work well on both plain and textured/detailed backgrounds. What do you think?
  4. Title says it all, I took photos of my entire collection, next to each is the amount of use the pen got (for wearing of the tip). Here you go: Waterman Graduate F, ocasional use: Rotring Artpen 1.5, almost no use: Rainbow 239, vintage, ocasional use: Rainbow 232, vintage, heavy use: Pilot Varsity, used once till empty: Picasso 998, inked for first time: Picasso 916, ocasional use: Picasso 902, moderate use: Picasso 606, almost no use: Pelikan Jazz M, moderate use: Parker IM italic ground by me, almost no use: Lamy Safari M, moderate use: Lamy S
  5. My Son who lives in Japan sent me a Nikon D3000 which has a scratch on the cover sheet over the back lens,but the Camera works great,as I was trolling the internet I saw this article in Utube which says, How to get tack sharp imagesfor less than $5.00 so I thought That's for me! so what it is about is using Cotton Buds with a Paper stem instead of the one we all now use which pollutes everything it touches when you are finished with it.So I dial up this Englishman who shows you how to really clean your lens using Cotton Buds,most of us just keep on wiping the lens with our dirty Lens Cloth wh

    Offering Photography Advice

    Hello, I recently found this forum and posted for the first time asking about a pen I had that was very special to me, which, unfortunately, I lost mere weeks later, after having it in my pocket every day for over 20 years (still reeling). Anyway, this community has been very kind and insightful to me, and since I am the furthest thing from a pen expert here, I want to offer whatever expertise I can to support the community. I am a professional studio photographer, specializing in high-end watch photography, as well as jewelry, pens, and other pricey objects (I have also worked ar
  7. watching the Syo-Ro fall out of the feed of this #3776 like a waterfall was so satisfying I just felt compelled to take a Photograph! upon browsing through the first few pages of the FPN Photography forum I still hadn't found a place for it, so here we go: What are some satisfying moments of being a Fountain Pen user that you've managed to capture? -Kieran
  8. Hey all! So... I received a microscope as a present about a week ago, and today I thought I'd take a look at some inks. I had some Pelikan Brilliant-Red and some Rotring red technical drawing (pigment) ink on hand, so I made a couple of smears and this is what came out: This is the Pelikan at 100X: The Rotring at 100x and 400x respectively: You can clearly see the small pigment particles that can clog up a pens feed. The dots on the Pelican slide on the other hand are little crystals that formed as the ink dried (I don't have photos of it while still wet, but it was clear). The
  9. Good day FPN friends! Its been some time since I’ve posted here but perhaps some of you may have read my reviews of Japanese pens in the past. My name is Nicholas and I write at www.inkypassion.com. I’m thankful that my site has given me the opportunity to meet many enthusiasts and enjoy unique pens. Many of you know that I have always had an interest in Japanese pens, and Maki-e was a natural progression – I trimmed my collection of over 40 pens to move to Maki-e because I really appreciate the fine artistry and craftsmanship. You can read some of my pen reviews on my site too! I have b

    Hello From Denver! Lot's Of Pictures!

    Hello everyone! I'm Mike. I live in Denver, Colorado! About a year and a half ago I moved back to Denver (and the U.S. for that matter) from Australia. I am an engineer and was working in the field. Now that I have an office role I've dropped the field pencil and picked up the fountain pen...and I'm LOVING it! As engineers do, I've been researching to no end, learning as much as I can. I'm really glad I found FPN as it has been an incredible resource (unlike many forums out there...)! I also happen do be big into photography as a hobby! The Visconti Michelangelo rollerba
  11. I have quite a substantial perfume collection - roughly as many bottles as I have fountain pens - and it occurred to me that if Montblanc was the undisputed Chanel of the FP world, then Visconti was probably the Amouage. http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f391/thegrynne/FountainPenNetwork/L1200953_zpsuutlpb2p.jpg http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f391/thegrynne/FountainPenNetwork/L1200940_zpsdwa5iskb.jpghttp://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f391/thegrynne/FountainPenNetwork/L1200930_zps7wiltrh8.jpg Top: Amourage Epic Woman, Visconti Kaleido Voyager Amber Middle: Amouage Gold Woman, Visconti Fi
  12. Here is my contribution to the thread, a few pictures I took last week. You will find more on my boutique 123stylo.com, opening 1st of October :-) Any comments are really welcome! I'm trying my best to capture the pens beauty, without photoshop editing. Cheers from Switzerland! http://i1078.photobucket.com/albums/w499/123chrono/IMG_2607%20-%20copie_zpspo41piza.png http://i1078.photobucket.com/albums/w499/123chrono/IMG_2540%20-%20copie_zps5vfu5spl.png http://i1078.photobucket.com/albums/w499/123chrono/IMG_2668%20-%20copie_zpsmuhx8uk3.png http://i1078.photobucket.com/albums/w499/123chro
  13. Customer support and after sales service - the way it should be There are companies who make promises and there are companies who keep it; encountering the latter came as a pleasant surprise, not only did they keep the original promise, but went far beyond their remit to keep an end customer happy. The story goes thus. I land at my dad's after a couple of years [we live half way across the world] and during a nice balmy drink he jumps and says 'Son, I was meaning to give you something last time you were here, but forgot, let me go fetch it'; before I gulp the drink and pop the question as to
  14. This was hand-drawn for a shirt design. It is a robot crushed by a boulder (see various hydraulics fluids coming out) and as such is titled "Hug Me, Boulder?" Because of it's abstract nature, it could also be interpreted as strangely misshapen, friendly robot with four hover boosters.

  15. I was messing around yesterday, using my phone and tablet's LCD screens for lighting. I put a white image on them and used a black hoodie as a backdrop. The screens were the only sources of light. The original images were 14MP, but they were resized to fit this post. I have no clue about photography, and would appreciate some advice and feedback. Here are 4 photos: I have a lot of other photos taken, but I like these best.

    The Moore Pen

    Okay, I was reading elsewhere about how people use a lightbox to take their lovely pictures or their equally lovely pens, and I found a thread that showed how it was done on the cheap. Now, as many of you would probably attest, I have the photography skills of brain-damaged baboon. Anyway, this morning I wandered into my workshop, grabbed a cardboard box, cut a great big hole in one side and covered that with a piece of old white T-shirt. I stuck a flooring tile inside the box and used a placemat as the backdrop. My camera is a Nikon coolpix 4000 or something. It's about 11 years old and as
  17. I would love for this to be made a pinned topic so all who enter can quickly find tips on photographing their pens.
  18. I have no idea where this should go...so we'll start here. I recently took a darkroom photo class and during the course of it, we did some print toning. And I was wondering if anyone had tried using FP ink as a toner? What have your experiences been? I have not logged enough hours in the darkroom to have a portfolio with which to experiment, so I figured that I would ask y'all. TIA for any comments or suggestions. Was thinking of putting older FP inks to good use...
  19. Good afternoon everyone. Thought I would post some pics I took of my 149 (first few are underexposed for silhouetting purposes). She's almost a year old now =) http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DSC8702_1024.jpg http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DSC8703_1024.jpg http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DSC8734_1024.jpg http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DSC8741_1024.jpg http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DSC8747_1024.jpg http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DSC8771_1024.jpg http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DS
  20. My little Japanese bronze paperweight looks a lot like the Pelikan logo.
  21. I am delighted to share perhaps my most favorite FP and handmade notebook. Unboxing of Pilot Prera (Japanese import): (w/ Lamy Safari) Prera w/ BPN (Black Pocket Notebook): I handmade the 3.5x5.5" BPN using very VERY cheap materials: construction paper (cover), 12 printer papers, 3 staples (binding) No scissors were available, so all cutting was ripping with my hands--hence the ragged edges. I hope to use USA 100% recycled paper & staples in the future...there are surprisingly good papers for this FP! Thanks for viewing!
