I'm looking for a saticon camera to get that 70's/80's CRT/VHS look. Anyone know of any good ones that are worth the novelty (IE under 300$)?
Where can I download Photoshop for free?
I don't use photoshop
surely you have something other than money to offer
i use lightroom
youre still an Adobecuck
If you search "adobe creative cloud photography package" you should find a place where you can purchase a subscription.
It's p ez, OP.
I discovered this board by accident 3 years ago. Somehow you guys sparked my interest in photography. I quit my job a year later and started studying photography, these are some of the pictures of my last term project.
I wouldn't have taken them without you and my life changed for the better after picking up a camera, thank you.
is this a film set?
I see someone has a helicopter restoration project in the backyard. Freaking drones are everywhere.
Thank you OP for posting a lovely original set here.
is that chief keef
>tfw no scrap metal helicopter in my backyard
So as a guy, I need to take 6 self portraitures in order to make myself look as attractive to women as possible The first and the last of these pics have to be the best.
What are some tips you have for taking self portraitures or making yourself the subject?
Doesn't matter how you make yourself look in profile pictures if you're still repulsive in person.
Also, going through all this effort for some pussy. Kek'd
is that girl that sucubus from vhs movie?
No its what happens when I had to do a project for intro to photography without owning a flash in the woods at night using an 18mm lens on a crop body and lighting with flashlights.
>tfw you match a fat girl by accident
How does one take good portrait shots? What lens should I be using
85mm eqiv. Or 65mm - 100mm if you're a cheap cunt. Try to at least get 2.8f minimum for the lens.
And do basics, don't have the frame cut at joints and shoot the subject at eye level or near eye level etc. Use light to reflect a desired mood. Bring a giant piece of white cardboard and a slave if you shoot in the sun
>>3063820 >what lens?
use a fast 80mm or longer- that will give you nice depth of field and make the face thinner and less "bubbly"
Going to differ a bit.
I think anything above 50mm is fine provided you're doing more context and body too Don't really see a need for ultra fast lenses either unless you're shooting at night. You can get good separation even with f4 on a decent zoom. Very wide apertures are a good tool but they can definitely be overkill sometimes.
Don't forget to convert focal length for your camera sensor size!!
Don't neglect the lighting. An off camera flash or reflector in the right place can do wonders.
I am currently trying to decide on which camera I should buy. Currently, I'm looking at Sony's NEX-7, NEX-6, and the A6000. I'm also considering the Olympus OM-D. My price cap is around $600-$650. I need advice on which camera would ultimately be the best value for the money I am putting in, and some pros/cons. Thanks
the Panasonics are better at that price, especially if you want to do any videography as well, and especially the G7 is a steal right now since the G85 came out last fall.
the only potential drawbacks is the size since it's a bit bigger than the E10 (not an issue with the GX7 & GX85) as it lacks in-camera lens stabilization (not a problem with newer model Panasonics like the GX85 and G85 which have that feature in the camera body; the reason for that was that Panasonic put their stabilization systems in the lenses themselves, and still do afaik)
>>3063804 >as it lacks
>Panasonic put their stabilization systems in the lenses themselves
in their Panasonic branded lenses obv. Olympus brand lenses didn't have stabilization in the lens, and I'm not sure if their newer lenses added that or not
I have the Sony a6000 + SEL50f18 + SEL28f20 + SEL16-50f3.5-5.6 (Kit) and the truth is that it is a good camera.
I have a better experience using it for street photography and photography in general than my previous reflex cameras, it is not so small and discreet as a GR but it is not uncomfortable to carry with you everywhere. The EVF is quite useful although it is not the best, certainly not something that you notice a lot or cause a problem when shooting. The focus is quite fast and the quality of the photos is quite good compared to APS-C reflex cameras. My old camera was a Canon 60D which I replaced with the a6000, I'm thinking of selling the 60D because I only have it on the shelf along with my Canon lenses (50mm, 18-135mm). The only thing I would need to really be able to completely replace my 60D its a SEL55-210 MM F4.5-6.3 OSS. If any of you have the a6000 with 55-210 I would love to hear your opinions, experiences and sample photos with it, also if someone considers that it is a bad idea to get rid of my 60D I would like to know why they consider it so.
The E10 is a rebranded E5 but with a larger screen and (arguable) worse video (fps vs mbps).
However your price bracket means that you can get better kits used. I just picked up an OM E5 with a kit lens for $330 so I think you can do better.
Everyone is also right about the pricing. Olympus Micro Four Thirds are priced higher than competitors although if take your camera outside during adverse weather I would recommend a weather proofed system. I have missed out on opportunities due to weather before so I wanted a weather proof system this time.
If someone tells you your photo looks shopped is it a compliment?
Nothing in that image is sharp senpai
You gotta get good with focus and f stop
I should have probably used manual focus, but this was shot at f/8, what's wrong with that?
Why are you walking about taking pictures of The Zone?

Not OP, there's no rule about which eyes should be in focus
fucking trash as always, kill yourself already omi
anyone else made the transition from hobbyist to /p/ro?
I'm not super pro, I'm only at a point where photography is paying 80% of my bills. lots of small jobs and I get one or two bigger contract a year where I can hire 3-4 assistants and get to manage a staff. which is great.
the down side is that I spend 5% of my time shooting 50% editing, 30% invoicing and book keeping, 10% wondering and stressing about paying bills, 4% wondering how I'm gonna pay rent this month, and 1% telling people to fuck off with their exposure bucks.
5% shooting is probably pretty optimistic, it's probably closer to 1 - 0.5%
Is there a stockphoto company that buys photos from users?
I don't care if I don't make much, but if I could at least sell my snapshits for some gain I'd feel better about spending this much on this hobby.
I'm trying OP, the ball is very slowly rolling. i just keep getting one off shoots for everything from weddings to food (and for v.small amounts of money). Hate weddings, pretty good at food, want to do editorial portraiture but my portfolio is nowhere near where it should be for that. I had an idea about how to get it up to scratch, it's just a lot of work and having a bar job as my full time gig isn't that helpful
why dont you hire someone to edit it for you? it'll free up like 50% of your time. so you can worry 50% more. or get more done. either is fine.
Oh boy. This is so true. I'm not going to take more customers but then again my biggest (only? Niche market) competitor has quit?
Oh well, I have to take their market otherwise somebody else will :/
Any advice for someone looking to make the jump? I have a lot of experience with editing already, and I've taken plenty of good shots that don't have any people in them. Other than the obvious equipment like a flash and and a softbox kit, what should I invest in and what should I be doing to market myself?
I want to start shooting portraits on film.. I have never shot film OR medium format.
I think I would like to get a hasselblad setup for doing it, what would the best Hasselblad combo (body + lens) for shooting portraits with strobes? (I have an Elinchrom setup).
I mentioned Hasselblad but I am open to recommendations.
If you're set on a 6x6 SLR you should try to get a cheap Bronica SQ (not the very old Bronica S stuff, maybe an SQ-A). They have electronic leaf shutters and while they aren't full metal and you won't be able to show off Zeiss™T* coating labels and 140+lp/mm charts you will get just as far for a lot less money/trouble.
If you are only going to do studio portraiture then you should try an RB67 or RZ67.
Since you've never shot film I'll assume you've mostly composed looking through 2:3 viewfinders so just know that any 6x6 or 6x7 camera is going to be a different experience
Ah I asked about this in SQT but got no response... Previous to that I did google but ghuess I couldnt phrase it properly to get any relevant results.
Please explain a bit more ?
Sorry just realised I totally omitted any specific information:
Im interested in how the larger film plane & lenses effect the DOF. I only have a basic grasp of how the focal length changes between 120 & 135 too, so if your feeling eloquent..
Anything that still operates and has a lens on it will work, it's the scene that will make the photo
and buy a damn light meter
