Not really sure how to frame pictures yet.
Most of the time I've got too much sky/grass/water in the picture.

the composition here makes me feel queezy, like you knocked the camera up and left at the last second. Why the hell would you have such a strong rectangle feature and not place it either centrally or along the rule of thirds?

Sup /p/, I'm going to Berlin soon, for a week. I'll be staying by a friend that studies there, and we'd like to do some urbex stuff.

Anyone has suggestions? Cool abandoned places near Berlin? Cool non-touristy places to see? I'm bringing along only my DP2M, maybe a flash.

How did the masters come up with all those unique photographs?

Whenever I am out photographing I am like a computer algorithm that compares the things he sees with familiar patterns. Because of that all my work is worse copies of existing work. How does one develop an own vision? Is photography perhaps not the right thing for me if I even have to ask that question?

Be an artist. You realize that asking for instruction on how to stop following instructions isn't going to work, right?
>>
Just experiment. Bend the rules of composition a little. Expand your perception of the world.

The picture you have is of a lighthouse by the ocean; the focus is mostly on that one object. That's a valid way to take a photo, but of course there are tons and tons of photos just like it. If you'd rather get something unique, you need to remember that there is no set way to take a photo. Different compositional styles have different effects. This one makes the lighthouse look powerful.

The photographer is choosing to include the whole lighthouse in the frame with water, a sunset, and a small mountain of snow in the background.

But you can choose to focus on some smaller details on the lighthouse, or maybe you want to capture the large expanse of land which is not in the photo. Maybe you'd rather not get the sunset, or even the sun itself in the photo. Maybe you want it at night. Maybe you'd prefer that the lighthouse were not intact. Maybe you'd prefer that there was something interesting going on with the lighthouse. Maybe you'd rather have a different vantage point. The point is, there are a great number of ways to take a photo of this lighthouse, or anything at all.

The best place to start photography is a library. Ignore YouTube attention whores, expensive DVD lessons, etc. Especially “For Dummies” guides. You’re not a dummy. Read some books. Learn the technical basics of photography, the concepts, the principles behind everything. Learn the rules and follow them rigidly. That way you’ll know when to break them. Look at work by great photographers of the past. There is no objectively good or bad kind of photograph, but learn what’s generally “good” and what’s generally “bad.” Get a taste for good pictures. Then look at work by modern photographers.

You’ll need a camera. If you have a general idea of what you want to do and have a good grasp of how photography works, you’ll know what you want. Research the fuck out of it, but don’t fall to the temptations of gearfaggotry. That is the realm of losers who jerk off to camera specs and hoard gear. Go to a camera store and fingerfuck the stuff they have to see if it’s comfortable. Check its weight, and feel how it handles. If you’re at B&H, be sure to pick your nose or teeth before touching all the merchandise. Once you have a camera, be sure you know how to use it. You should eventually be able to control most, if not all functions with your eyes closed.

Always take pictures. Always keep your camera on you, or at least as often as you can. Some old European guy nobody ever heard of named Henri Cartier-Bresson who took some pictures or something once said, “Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.” You’ll be shooting digital, so that number should be 360,000. Look at work by other people on photo-sharing websites, and by all means, share your own. But be sure you don’t let the likes and comments dictate what you want to shoot. Always shoot for yourself, and take the pictures you want to take, not the picture some internet armchair neckbeard critic wants to see. Shoot for yourself, and you’ll always be a happy photographer.

Take photos you enjoy viewing later, be realistic with and exploit your surroundings, only you thinks your area is as boring as you do.

Knowing the rules and applying them to your shots is like an artist learning to mix paint to get the right colour, use that information to make art you enjoy.

Those of you who have done private shoots with models, have you ever fucked one of your models, either during or after a shoot? This isn't a "how to get models to have sex with you" thread, I'm just genuinely curious to hear other anons' experiences.

How do you people scan your film slides/negatives?
i personaly have an epson v500 but the quality i get from it for 35mm film is totally disapointing and for 120 film kinda disapointing.
i wonder if i will get better quality from dslr scanning (plus it will be raws instead of tiffs to work with then).
has anyone here made experience from switching from the lower tier epsons to dslr scanning or vice versa?
could you share your scans and your workflow on how to improve digitized film?

also film scanning general i guess

maybe i dont get those matlab programms but... i feed it 4 2400 dpi scans (converted from tif to jpg with photoshop) and it now sits at it for over 30 minutes making my pc barely useable, because it eats up 14 of my 16 gigs of ram.
so since i cant find a watermark free version of pa and matlab is somehow unuseable im going to sleep for today.
anyways, is playing with the mentioned technique in hotoshop worth it?
or is there other free software( or ez to pirate) tht can be used ( similar to PA)

Before getting into the A7 series I wanted to get used to Sonys system first, so I got myself an a6000 not that long ago. I am really pleased by its image quality and the evf works a charm. Adapting old lenses is fun and having the opportunity of using Canon EF lenses on the Sony makes it even better. I am looking forward to buying an A7r II sometime this year.

Tone mapping and HDR are completely different. Calling a tone mapped photo HDR shows your ignorance. Pulling back highlights and bringing up shadows add detail to the image. Halos are never good, and lighting should make sense, of course, but don't be an idiot.

I'm looking to get into video mostly just to make little YouTube shorts and one day a short film maybe. I'm trying to work out what mic to get.

From everything I have read a shotgun mic is a good place to start and the $250 rode ntg is considered entry level and most mics under that are bad.

Is there any mic for 100-150 that I should look at?

I would consider renting some Litepanels, Ikan, Lowells, or even Westcott Icelights (most of these are quite expensive to buy, but relatively cheap to rent).

You can still buy a On-Camera/Pocket Sized LED light for about $30 and test it out (they work well if you are able to get them close [ to your subject).

So here it is, making a new thread. Now for those of you in the front seats yelling about the gear thread, I looked into it and it's infested with gearfags arguing about whether Sony has a business running or not. So let's make this one a bit more serious.

As it is getting more trendy I also started to invest in old manual lenses. Got the obligatory Helios 44, a couple of Pentacons and something that tries to be something like a Pentacon but it's not. It's a Pentor 70-220mm F4 zoom made in Japan, is a monster of a lens, pic related.
It's a nice lens, image quality is definitely good, even if I don't look at it's atrocious $30 price tag. Everything is alright except I didn't find anything about it on the internet. Turns out Pentor is an import brand, a rebrand of various japanese made lenses. I found this same lens under the Revuenon brand which is also an import re-brand. There are some rumors about Revuenon lens actually made by Tomioka but there is nothing about Tomioka zoom lens of this focal length.
Does anyone have any idea where this lens is from? Anyone else using Pentor, Revuenon or Tomioka lenses? What are your opinions on these?
Two more pictures coming up of the front element and without the lens hood.

Why are you asking if it's good or bad when you have a copy infront of you?
What the fuck are you asking?
Leave?

This place is crowded with "pro photographers wannabes" and "my 10k setup makes my pictures look great" no talent fags. Just consider this: what kind of photographer that has any respect for the art or for people that share the same interest would spend the day going around this board telling people the shit they do?...
With that said, create a mflenses forum user and post your questions there. That place does have a lot of people that know what they're talking about and are happy to help. (I'm a lens collector myself, but Pentor is definitely a rebrand of something - majority of these don't have a lot more info to add than that)

Did a quick search and found this in mflenses: "It's Dutch all right: a photoshop / importer named ORWO. They combined the name Pentacon (they were importer for the NL) and their own name ORwo: PentOr." - you might gave seen this before though...

Is there any cheaper ($150-300 range, new or used) alternative to the RX-100 with similar or close enough image quality?

Looking for something small and compact that doesn't make much noise for street photography.

Is there any reason this K5 is so cheap even used? I feel it's a too good to be true situation, but maybe I just don't know what the fuck the value of this thing actually is.

K5ii and K3 are out. It's a great bit of kit. Don't worry about getting it. If it were a Nikon camera, it would be twice as much, even used. Pentax isn't a primary manufacturer, so people forget about them.

>>2566967
Would you say that's a good deal for that price range then? Compared to say the d3200 or sl1?
>>
>>2566968
Oh by a country mile, absolutely. In every way.

Except for lens selection and upgrade path, that is. But as a beginner on a budget, you'll do just fine, and be very pleased.

If you have small hands, you may add a battery grip to your list of things to get at some point.
