No.3464488 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Lacking motivation to go out and shoot? Want to take photos but don’t know of what? Looking for ways to get better at your craft? Here’s the thread for you!

THIS MONTH’S ASSIGNMENTS - DETAILS EDITION
>1) Photo of only a part of a person, like the hands or the mouth or the eyes.*
>2) Architectural detail. Make a diptych with a shot of the building as a whole if you wish.
>3) “Grace”.
>4) Texture.

[spoiler:lit]*: the part should still be attached to the living body it is part of. Please don't pull a Dahmer on this.[/spoiler:lit]

HOW DOES IT WORK
>4 assignments changing every month (LISTED ABOVE) but categorized in 4 recurring themes
>You can try them in any order you like
>Recurring themes are 1) human subject 2) environment 3) abstract concept 4) compositional element
>1) Posed or candid portraits, or taking pictures with humans being a prominent element, like street photography
>2) Landscapes. If you live in a city urbanscapes are acceptable too, but try to get out of town
>3) Something vague and open to interpretation
>4) Having a certain shape, like triangle or circle, or a compositional element, like repetition, diagonal, thirds. The rest is up to you
>You can post more than 1 photo for each assignment but do try to cover every theme per month
>Try to take new photos instead of posting from your archive
>Have fun!

Deadline is on the 15th of every month, but of course you can post results as soon as you have them and get friendly feedback from lovely anons.

>What's the point?

The goal of these challenges is to give you some direction with your photography. How do you know which direction to go in? You follow an arrow. But this time, don’t just follow it; take a picture of it.

Absolute photography pleb. How did he have enough light to take these. If he used slower shutter speed wouldn't the people and train be blurred.

Instagram grid aesthetic

No.3458975 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Why the fuck does everyone do this? Why does every successful instagram have to have some boring ass gallery with the same colors/theme/shots for all of their photos? Don't people realize how this just limits creativity and forces the same bullshit shots snd style over and over? I don't get it guys please explain this to me. Is this why I can't get 1k followers but some faggots 400 shots of the same ocean waves gets 50k+?

can any expert on film cameras help me with this please?

I have the lens shown in the ref picture and it is a 35-70 zoom lens with a ring i turn on it to set the aperture of the photo.

As you can see in the ref image the ring you turn has a red line and a green line. The red line is beside 3.5 and the green line is beside 5.6

If i look on the actual lens the 35mm end is red and the 70mm end is green.

So it make sense that in the picture shown if i was using the lens at 35mm i would be at f3.5 and if i was using it at 70mm i would be at f5.6.

My question is what about all the rest of the zoom range? Which of those 2 lines do i read from?

ie at 50mm do i read the aperture number from the red or green line?

Its a whole stop of difference so if i fuck it up i ruin my photo.

I tried googling but the question is to complicated to google properly.
