Post pictures that you've taken to share them with other anons. Talk about the things you like to take pics of and what camera you use. I'll start. I use a Lumix FZ48, and I like to take pictures of nature, and I want to get into more Urbex pictures.

>>722 >>739 Nice macro, liked the leaf one, has some digital look to it but don't know if it is a phone or a large zoom compact camera. That squirrel is indeed quite close.

Let's look into some of the famous, and not so famous, photographers' works to get some inspiration, ideas or entertainment by looking at some of their pictures in small dumps. Also serves as a way to force myself into enjoying this hobby without a camera. Anything goes as long as you like it enough to expose it, in my case i will post some of them once in a while in a constant format.

Dreaded but necessary, this is the spot for discussion towards the hardware and perhaps some of the software. Lenses, cameras, tripods, belts, grub, you name it.

>>398 Not OP (zoom zoom guy here) but I think it helps to realize that some of the street photography "greats" actually staged much of their stuff. That said I despise most street.

>>359 I think it's either a very minor sort of light leak, or, more likely, surge marks around the sprocket holes from the lab. This was on 35mm film. I don't think it's a light leak because the area is darker there which would indicate less light. But I'm also not entirely sure how this would happen at the lab. It might have something to do with my scanner. Still pretty happy with how it turned out.

For the betterment of our users we shall proclaim a small library of resources like PDFs and videos. This is the place to share personal ways, known names, discovered channels, own documents and particular files that can enhance our abilities in this hobby. But due to concerns regarding the hosting size made clear to me by our admin we should upload them externally via media share sites or, in the case of videos, refer to a site or quick way to get them. Pretty simple activity but i do recommend using trusted filehosts, obscuring names, using passwords and other assorted privacy measures to avoid bots or crawlers from taking content down. I mean we are not sharing anything illegal and we sure are not pirating anything either but it's best to be reserved :^) From my part i just finished organizing and uploading a bunch of stuff you guys might find helpful. I will make a post for each theme and probably recommend one or two documents from that batch, i haven't read much other than the stuff i bought but i will try to make the best bet from what i've gathered in the many previews i did, otherwise you can check the list and see what you fancy as there's probably the high chance i might've missed a golden standard or just very good document. I still have many files left in reserve and will post the topic names if anyone is curious or needs some, honestly those didn't get up because i got tired and rushed to gather essentials.

>>312 >Yep, that second one was practically a bargain bin shot but after learning some tricks about erasing reflections from windows (had to due to shooting so many moving vehicle co-pilot pics) i managed to salvage it, the shadow play ended up being pretty dramatic which cannot be seen that much in the color version. 12 years ago too, been cleaning old stuff before delving into purely recent images, have to cut the teeth with the backlog. Hey that's nice! >Here's others to get pics going on, this time some digishit antics. I like that the second one kind of has that instant camera aesthetic going on but I guess I also prefer your more traditional ones. You do you, though.

Welcome to /p/ Photog 05/02/2020 (Sat) 06:10:18 No.4 [Reply]
Hello there buddies and welcome to /p/, the board dedicated to all things related to the visual time machine. I want to mention i'm going to try my best to be as off-hands as i can be regarding discussion to exert the max comfiness possible, but we are still bound to follow our hosts' rules plus some comments of mine: 1. Follow the global rules, which are based on the Romani 2012 Criminal Code. They can be found at our Home page but in short they state that we should: a) Avoid posting or requesting information that might harm something or someone, these include social security and/or financial card numbers, registration plates, an asshole's physical direction, comprehensive government structures' layouts, etc. b) Avoid posting sexually suggestive images of individuals from the genus Homo that were under 18 years old, or might appear under said age without ID confirmation, when the images were taken. b.i) In this segment images of "juveniles simulating sexual behavior in a credible manner" are also included, meaning realistic 3D renders are prohibited. Such are the drac laws. - Because of what constitutes "suggestive" is a subjective matter, the "Bas" Dost test can be performed by a judge (in this case the BO or A.C's administration). - It contains 6 questions or factors that constitute if the poster is guilty or not, the number of positives to give such judgement is where the controversy begins but to keep it simply i'm going to state that: If it is suspicious that's a spoiler, if it turns me or a G-Vol on that's a delete, if it is highly arousing to any man then that's a ban - The difference between Grigori Galitsin and Garry Gross is the legal team, you might back that up under U.S. law but this site is based on gypsy land, so we reiterate an urgent appeal to avoid these images. 2. Spoiler gore or NSFW content because Canadians and Australians might bug and harass our host's administration if otherwise. We are currently classified as NSFW but the eternal leaf still doesn't care. 3. Do not spam gore/porn/nude oeuvre made to incit a normal sexual reaction due to the aforementioned reason. - I will consider "spam" the action of posting more than 5 times something tertiary to the topic at hand or from the reply chain. - If the topic IS nudes or something very related (the oeuvre of a specific photographer specialized in that, for example) then this rule does not apply, but Rule 2 still does. 4. Do not post invite links to Discord groups. Just Don't. 5. Meta content should be posted here >>2 to make things faster and cleaner for all of us.

Good Cheap Camera Photog 11/04/2023 (Sat) 10:29:03 No.1788 [Reply]
hello frens, I am looking for a cheap camera but have absolutely no idea about brands or anything, could you please suggest me something? >want cheap (no limit but the low end category) >want normal quality photos (family stuff, textures for games, ...) >want dumb (NOT smart, touchscreen, AI, OS, internet, subscriptions, ...) >want no bullshit, just stupid camera that works and last >preferably doesn't break after few months >video recording is a plus >DON'T WANT fancy features >DON'T NEED super high res., super zoom, supreme lens or anything thank you!
>>1788 >want normal quality photos >video recording is a plus The quality of the video and the depth of field achievable is what mostly separates camera types and prices. Post a photo you feel would be the right example of "normal quality" and i can probably confirm if one of my suggestions is right for you. In short you want a simple to operate, somewhat durable, cheap-ish photo-centric camera, that is simple enough but you would also need to specify if you are okay with used goods, in the camera world that isn't that much of a problem unless analog with tons of internals, it has a weak shutter or is cheaply build enough to break over time. I have some suggestions, one for enthusiasts if you want to hone your abilities later on and one for casual, trivial operation to use something not your cellphone at gatherings or normal walks. First suggestion would be an entry-level "student's" DSLR (digital single lens reflex system), brand new you can find the Canon Rebel line or the Nikon D3#00 line. Rebel line has two variants, the really poorfag option of the 4000D/T100 line which is the barebones basics or the normal Rebel T#, last one being the T7 i believe but honestly if you are just starting the T100 is very good on its own; last one of the Nikons is the D3500. Pros of these cameras: >Very durable if taken care of aka not repeatedly throwing it at full force to the ground and not soaking it in torrential rain >Great battery life >Great image quality compared to most cameras that can be tweaked even further if processed with photo programs using the modifiable heavy format >Can change lenses depending on your style or needs Cons: >Can be seen as bulky or way too big for casual, trivial use >Might arouse too much attention from the nigger cattle in both good and bad ways
