This is the end all be all to instagram threads. In it, I will write a step by step guide on how to have more people like your photos. If you are one of those super cool people on /pee/ that hate people besides your mummy seeing your photos, or hate using hashtags because your photos of homeless people are just too cool for hashtags, fuck off, this isn't for you.
The first thing to think about before even posting a photo is what is the ultimate goal?? Answer: get more followers. How do you get more followers? Answer: get seen by more people. That is the only real thought process behind this guide, so if you don't like those two answers, you can also fuck off, why are you even reading this?
I will now list out the steps as clearly as I can, and attempt to leave no questions by the end of the post
Step 1: Have good content
This should be obvious. You can't put out shit content and expect people to applaud your failure as a photographer. Your photos should represent the best of what you have to offer using your camera. But having good content doesn't just mean having good photos, it means that you must also have content that is CONSISTENT. So if you're serious about having a landscape photography Instagram page, only post landscape photography, and nothing else. Think about it from the followers perspective, they saw a cool picture you took of a lake or something and liked it enough to say "I want to see more pictures of lakes and nature just like this!!" Why the fuck would they want to see a picture of your coffee in the morning, or why would they want to see some street """"""""""photography""""""""""? Pro-tip, they don't. Keeping your content consistent will keep these people interested in your content and continue to interact. I will explain later why it's so important to have your followers continue to interact.
Android emulator. Otherwise, you can't.
I usually upload to google drive, then download to my phone and share.
Fuck... Do you got a name ? There's a lot of emulator
I read a while ago from some insider that instagram will promote your posts the more you use stories and share live video. But I refuse to share live video.
Also spend 5-10 minutes and sharpen your shit for instagram.
Use chrome, get addon called UA spoofer and change UA on it to iPhone 6 or iPad. Then go to
and now you can post using your browser.
What film has the best dynamic range? I've just bought an EOS 5, wanting to shoot film as well as digi for the better range and muh aesthetic
pic related, lifted off a RPT as an example of the shit I want to achieve
As long as it's better than digi it'd be worth it
Alright cheers, I'll have to try that
Hehe it wont be hard
I'm de acuerdo with you, Portra is my favorite emulsion.
Digital is actually better than most film at this point, just at the opposite end of the scale.
Where film does amazingly well with highlights, it crushes shadows and looks like shit. Where digital clips highlights, it does amazingly well with shadows. Also, the highest dynamic range isn't due to the film, but the developer. There are some low contrast-high DR developers that can pull out 19 or 20 usable stops of dynamic range.
Thank for the knowledge
I took this. Used Portra 160 overexposed at 80, meter for the shadows.

I want more people to see my pictures that I post on Instagram but I feel like a pretentious cunt if I use hashtags and I'd feel even more pretentious if I make a separate photography Insta, especially since I'm still pretty shit at photography, so I just post the pictures on my personal Instagram.
What hashtags do you people use for people to see your photos? Are there any hashtags you can use so people can give you constructive criticism or anything like that? Do I just have autism?
Woops just saw it sorry
I always use #amateurphotography
I don't really care about having new followers, just want the people I already know to see my photos
Just fuckin swallow your pride and do it. Put them in a separate paragraph and hit enter a few times so they don't show unless you hit "more".
I've done a lot of shit I felt dirty doing at one point but I'm also never fucking going back to 13 like a picture. Hell no.
our neighbor's mother makes 65 an hour on the internet and she has been fired from a job for two months but last month her income was 15589 just working on the laptop a couple of hours per day, check out this site
Don't do hashtags. Fucks up your algorithm and guarantees less views in discovery. What you wanna do is just engage. Like people's shit, go to discover and like the shit that you like. Follow people if you wanna see more of that shit. Hashtags don't do shit. I'm big on IG and never used a single hashtag in my life. Have started a fresh account from 0, not even friends know about it. Just start liking shit, follow people that are in common with you, sooner or later you will develop this 'circle' and IG algorithim will work in your favour, and you get noticed more.
Can we skip the "Sony sucks" and dive into the technical aspect of this. I really want to understand this. Why is this still happening? Generation after generation and they can't fix this problem? Why? Why doesn't any other brand have this issue? Why won't Sony ever take steps to truly fix it? So far all they've done is updates to increase max temp rating, but that just leads to a camera that gets too hot to hold in your hands. Couldn't a simple change to the body composition fix this? Or even a small surface area increase. I don't get it.
Yes, it is badly designed. The small form factor makes things very limited so I'm not sure they can do much better than this if they stay with these retarded body rules.
I think if Nikon would make a pro mirrorless, it would be the size of the D5 or the D500 with the same flange distance but without the mirror.
It would be an instant hit, it can mount the old SLR glass or the new mirrorless ones that can go deeper into the body.
Maybe that's what's next on the to-do list for nikon and canon. Well this has been most helpful. Maybe the first Sony thread that was educational and not rampant insults everywhere.
I never said it was the display.
It's the sensor and the electronics needed for the live view (or electronic viewfinder).
>>3084955 > It's the sensor and the electronics needed for the live view (or electronic viewfinder).
Nah. You can watch live view all day long and nothing happens unless you expose the camera to extreme ambient temperatures.
It's not an intrinsic problem of MILC as you'd probably want it to be.
It's just the Sony sensor's immense data streams and the high degree of processing that is applied that creates heat on processors before the data is ready to store *when you actually record on the highest available settings*. [Basically that "100% load" situation that will make any modern CPU pretty warm because really, the thermal limits were why it was limited to that load anyhow.]
Usually the second-most taxing task(s) on the Sonys are already unlikely to ever overheat the camera unless it's a really hot environment they're exposed to.
I guess all that eventually snowballs and becomes the issues we'll slowly see popping up as more people run out with it into all the conditions possible.
ITT we share our night sky pictures.
Milky way shots, moon, planets, comets, satellites or deep sky objects, anything night sky related.
Also discussion about astro gear, telescopes, filters, mounts and techniques.

I'm not the one who thinks an aurora is the same brightness as the night sky...
>>3084945 >Yes, I know. And they're just green smears.
Most Aurora shots are taken at 10-15 seconds. Some are longer exposures, even 30 seconds. Use 5 seconds then if you dont like what you are getting at 10 seconds
>I have a more than a few smear shots myself.
Also, quit acting like such a cunt
And most are shit.
>quit acting like a cunt
Come at me with an attitude, while being exactly wrong, and I'm not going to be nice to you. A retarded monkey can get a shot of an aurora without any kind of detail.
You're the one with the attitude, shitlord
First bit of attitude/name calling
Prior to that, I was just trying to ascertain the level of knowledge because the guy is telling me to shoot it in a way that I know doesn't work for anything other than making it look like someone selected part of the sky, brightened it, then screwed with the tint to make it green. It's not my fault he cares about his e-reputation and being wrong while being vague about it. If you don't want to get called out for bullshitting someone, don't spew bullshit.
What's the best system for archiving? Right now I'm doing YYMMDD and a small description
Don't be a digicuck and file negs.
I really wanted to get into photography, but my budget wasn't very high. I bought a sony a350 from craigslist, and have been using it the past few months but have begun to feel self conscious. I feel like I'm shooting on some outdated piece of shit that is ultimately going to waste my time. I understand high megapixels are really only important when printing but I still feel like shooting on a ten year old camera just isn't right.
tl;dr can decent photos be taken with an old dslr and why should I/when should I invest in a better camera?
Just curious why were they the thing to get? I understand old film cameras but why outdated DSLRs?
Don't shoot at 1600iso if possible
megapixels aren't that important, just get some good sharp lenses, probably a few old primes, and go to town with the basics
i have a decade-old DSLR, a Nikon D80. I don't go above 800 ISO. You don't get to complain.
Posted too early....
I find that shooting with an old kind of bad camera about shooting than a nice one does. On an old camera, you have to struggle to get nice shots, you have to relaly think about how you're going to expose it, and not rely on fancy technology to make the shot good. On a nice camera you can throw it an AUTO and run out and shoot and get nice shots relying on the internal computer alone, but never really learn about how to do it yourself.
Just my two cents
>>3084943 >>3084943 >I find that shooting with an old kind of bad camera about shooting than a nice one does
I find that shooting with an old, bad camera teaches you more about shooting than a nice one does***
So I went to Northern Ireland when I had a few days off last month, and created a small body of work about the remaining peace walls separating Loyalist Protestant and Republican Catholic neighborhoods. There are about 100 of these designated "Interface Points" in the six counties, with the majority of them being in Belfast.
I'm currently finalizing my edit, dusting the negs, and shopping it around to a few editors I know, either as a printable story or as a precursor to some more projects I'm hoping to produce in the summer.
C&C welcome. I will try to add captions and pertinent info as I go.
This image was in North Belfast, in a Loyalist area. My caption info notes are elsewhere so I can't tell you exactly what street, but this is relatively new construction (since 98), and the wall has been built up from a lower concrete structure into this. Often the walls are built in this fashion, with each addition getting thinner and serving different purposes. The highest points are almost always this type of fencing, which sits high enough to prevent bottles or balloons full of paint from being thrown but eliminates the danger of collapse by allowing airflow.
With Brexit looming, the idea of a hard border between the Republic and NI seems more and more likely. Tourism and trade will suffer almost immediately. I've heard but not seen that there are massive developments in Dublin with the plan to move some part of the banking and trade out of London and into Dublin, in addition to Frankfurt. The usual flare ups in the summer during Parade season will be much longer in my opinion. Trying to be back in July for the Twelfth.
Are you still local? Looking for more contacts inside the Orange order/ Loyalist areas to get access to the Bonfires and to create portraits of the Orangemen around the Twelfth.
Either way shoot me an email, I'll be back some time this year
Just barely visible in the middle of the frame is a very shredded Union Jack flag. The issue of flags is one of major contention, across not just Loyalist and Republican lines, but also those seeking a more cohesive Northern Ireland without leaving the United Kingdom. As such, sectarian strongholds often display flags, have painted curbs, and other loud displays showing support for their side. In some diplomatic cases, particularly concerning the Mayor of Belfast, both the Union Jack and the Irish Tricolor are displayed, while in other instances neither flag are displayed.

I'll fire you an email when I finish work, I think I knew a few people might be able to help.
I attended my first ever bonfire last year to get photos. As someone from a Catholic background, it was a mildly terrifying experience.

Yeah, as an American I am a bit worried how the reactions may go, which is why I'm trying to find someone who has higher contacts who might be able to get me some street level cred. The guy I rolled with was apolitical so we had little contact with anyone there.
Great shot too. Tigers Bay and Mount Vernon were already stocking up wood.
This image shows an art installation on an interface fence running between the East Belfast Albertbridge Road, which separates a Loyalist neighborhood to the south and the Republican area of Short Strand to the north. This installation, stretching nearly 5 meters, hangs without information on its reason for being or dedication, and has fall into disrepair.

In the Short Strand area of East Belfast, informants for the police, informally known as Touts, have contributed to numerous arrests of both Republican dissidents and more run-of-the-mill criminals, whose gangs are often comprised of former IRA splinter group members.

Wow never thought I'd see Belfast on /p/.
I'm from here and have lived both in West and North Belfast where these are most prevalent.
I guess we got used to them, but they are something most generally agree are a necessary evil in some areas. Although I personally think they breed further division.
So, let me ask for some help.
I can't take a decent selfie, never.
Every single time I turn out to be weird, and live i'm not that bad.
Any tips on how to take at least one single decent photo of myself?
phone above your head pointet down at you, raise your chin slightly upwards in order to accentuate the jawline. find out wich side is your more photogenic side of the face an point the camera more towards it. kylie jenner pro tip: take tons of selfies choose the best.
same works for dudes?
I kind of undestand that tips for girls, for dudes it gets a little strange, don't you think?
Oh wait, you're right. Men and women have completely different anatomies, and light and geometry work different between the two.
Try doing a duckface selfie and see how it works out.
Obviusly anatomies and light will be the same, but the final result can be beautifull or total lame, for the same pose, depending on your gender.
also, go back to /b
His advice was essentially "provide a good outline of your face" and "find which side of your face looks better". That is hardly the same as telling someone to do something that's a fad with a specific gender.
