Type 69-II tank of the Iraqi 3rd Armoured division 1991 (Desert Storm).

Looks in serviceable condition, but the hatch is open and the basket is empty, so I suspect it ran out of fuel in the open and was abandoned.

I live the "Ray knight was here" on the side of the tank.

Would have done it in B&W but still a powerful image

I always wonder how they got the shots they did in film between the 70s and 90s considering the options are "Take it now", "take it now and hope you have an electric winder" and "burst mode that will eat the roll in 2 seconds". It makes me wonder what they missed when I look at good shots.

>Neighbors said Michael Araja, 29, was killed by two men riding by on a motorbike, like so many of the other victims.

Being fairly young at about 17 when this article came out, this photo essay was really the first one I ever read and it massively impacted me. I'd seen plenty of photos and videos of people dying, but this was really one of the first times I saw it through the eyes of a professional photographer. Seeing the photos and the stories the held, really took my interest in photography from just Nat Geo type landscapes and nature shots, and propelled it towards photojournalists capturing stories in their photos like lightning in a bottle.
You might not like the photos or agree with the article, but this is one of my favorites, soley because it opened my eyes up to what I wanted to photograph and why.

As a brief aside, does anyone here have tips on shooting for, or writing a photo essay? Or really any other photojournalist related tips and info?
Over the summer I'm going to be interviewing, and shooting photos of, homeless and transients in my city, since we currently have a lot of them. I'm really excited about the project, especially as I used to work at homeless shelters a lot; I met so many people there that had so many amazing stories, but no one who'd listen to them. Any advice on this undertaking would be greatly appreciated, and I'm open to anything and everything you might have to offer.

Oh and one last thing, if you guys know of any good textbooks/books on photography that would help me out on this or just in general, that'd be huge. I've gotten a good bit of experience shooting, but I'd say I'm still a novice at best.

I've always wondered why we don't have one. Those threads on /ic/ are probably the best/most helpful aspect of that entire board.

Sally Mann's artbook may or may not come with an investigation in some states, the trial will be bullshit unless you have other shit to hide though. That's the only reason I can think of. We should start one. All I have are ancient artbooks that are better for photog than basic photography guides, but I can find some shit if I put my mind to it and make a burner for mega.

Not quite that fast, you anticipate the action and shoot 8-10 at a time. We also used to carry an awful lot of film.

Tell me more, I was a filmfag with an AE-1 right when shit went digital and was way too goddamn expensive.

All I know is the F1 and F3 from Canikon, but I know nuts were hauling medium format.

I was already hooked on the darkroom long before, but my highshool class was the last to do film for photography class, for reference.

I know that at least I'd really appreciate anything you could dig up. I'm afraid I don't have much to offer, except for maybe some architecture books I have but I don't have a very good way to scan them in and I'm not about to dissect the binding in order to scan them in properly.

List some books and I'll hunt around. I don't really know photogs the way I do 19th century painters and 20th century shin hanga artists. Also my previous hunts weren't so successful but that was years ago.

I'll start this project mostly singlehanded but you have to help with what to look for and some of the finds.

Hmm, well I'm not really sure what to ask for, since I've not really done much research into photography books, or even photographers who might have good books for that matter (in fact I'm >>3310074 which is to say, I'm rather inexperienced in photography, especially in the technical sense). If I may ask, where, if anywhere, are you planning to look for the books? I was thinking about checking some of the ebook IRC channels but I wasn't sure if they'd have much in the way of photography.

Btw, have you ever posted any books on those artists in /ic/? If so, I'll have to take a closer look at the collection in those threads.
>>
>>3310103
I'm exceedingly busy for the next two days as I finish off finals, but immediately after this Friday I can put a lot of time into this. I've got a lot of experience finding junk on the internet, so I should be able to help quite a bit.
>>
>>3310107
That's where I was going to hunt books along with some other places. I'm going to hunt /ic/ for photo books along with looking for /p/level shit in the archives and elsewhere and then some generally decent books that I find. Then making a thread and going from there.
>>
>>3310109
Email in options doesn't work anymore, fug. Anyway, yeah keep this thread going and I'll hunt whatever anyone recs because I have time the next week or so and we can make a thread for the real shit so there's less bullshit.

I like this one. Italian forces dropping 'La Pasta', one of strongest atomic bombs ever built. The test was a success inside the Atomic Warehouse Facility.

Another neat one:
Japanese Imperial Samurai after the behead of strong warrior who said 'Anime girls aren't real girlfriends'.
The Japanese are still very into dating 2D qts.

No idea. Most people I knew just shot slide film. But that was early 80's. The news guys still shot B/W because it had to be transmitted over the wires.

I used to buy 50 -100 rolls at at time and usually had a stash of both Fujichrome 100 and Ektachrome 100. I would also have some rolls of Velvia 50 on hand and Ektachrome tungsten 160. I also used both 35mm and 6x7.

E6 processing was around US$2.50-ish per roll, pushing was 50% more. I seem to recall processing was slightly less than buying a single roll but don't quote me on that.

>>3310084
I used a canon F1 with a Metz potato masher (CT45 or something similar)

I never did wars or anything, demos, festivals and press conferences mostly and portraits on the 6x7.

Later when I was getting back into travel I used two cheaper, plastic bodies. Eos was around by then and they were much lighter than the F1s

there used to be a 4chan FTP with a photo book section
>pic related is roughly a third of its contents

but its been down ever since someone found it funny to share the access on other sites and then spam the server and its directories with CP.
