Where did this "You should shoot JPEG if you're a beginner and RAW when you're more experienced" meme come from? How are you supposed to learn proper post processing if you shoot JPEG?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>3191550
They should be learning everything they can all at once. That's how you get good, quickly, and that's how proper training or learning is accomplished. Compartmentalizing it like a video game helps nobody. The process of finding a photograph, taking a photograph, and sitting down learning how to process it may seem daunting, but putting it off until you've "mastered" something else is arbitrary and silly, and there's no need to do that if you want to learn to process RAW eventually.


Not only that, but it's possible for an amateur to take a shot they like on "accident". It's better that they have it shot in RAW and have more creative freedom over how it's processed, because then this accidental keeper won't be a total wash just because of the format, especially if there's a small error in exposure or white balance which happens with newbies on beginner cameras with no manual white balancing option.

>>3191548
Content is by far the most important aspect of photography. People start out and what to worry about bullshit filters and shitty post processing nonsense without ever figuring out how to take a proper photograph of something interesting.

It's quite nice for a 1970s autoexposure camera. Metering is frame average or so weakly center-weighted that you can't tell, consequently all the things the Internet taught you about using the EC knob are literally true; there's absolutely no fighting with the matrix meter since OM-2 ain't got none. Zuiko glass is fantastic except for the zooms. Only downside is the off/auto/manual selector; I hate having to turn my camera off manually. The prism is fucking fantastic, it's like a movie theater in there; doesn't take much to shoot with both eyes open on a 50mm.

But don't pay more than ehhh $100 for an OM-2 w/ 50mm f/1.8. I got a workable (but not nice) condition for like 55€ a couple of years back.

They say that the designer set out to make the Leica M of SLRs with the OM-1, and I'd say that OM-2 is about as close as one gets to an autoexposure TTL Leica in an SLR camera. But it's Japanese, so much better for nerds.
>>
>>3191073
Have you used a Leica M? I love the OM-2, I've had a couple of them but I also had several Leica Ms and the Oly's body and lenses are just not up to par when compared to Leica's M body and lenses. They feel significantly cheaper, even the Bessa R feels significantly cheaper. From what I tested there are some bodys/lenses that are up to Leica standards and it's the Nikon F3 with some 1.4 Nikkor lenses, Konica Hexar RF(this is a dream camera, it's a Leica M6 mixed with a Contax G2 with the best of both combined) and as said, the Contax G1/G2. A Nikon F3 with Zeiss Lens converted would be the dream and I plan on getting some when possible, probably the F3 with a Distagon F2 converted.

That said, any slr camera feels significantly cheaper next to a Leica but the OM is a pretty nice system.

>>3190658
If you plan on using only the 50mm it's okay but you need to get a decent external lightmeter, the M3 does not have framelines for wider than 50mm, so you'll be stupidly limited if you plan on using a 28 or 35. I'd get a Konica Hexar RF, M4-P or M6 or anything newer rlly but the prices go up. If you have a limited budget(which I don't recommend if you are planning to buy a Leica) get an M2 which at least has the 35mm frameline and you can shoot 28mm using the whole finder. Leica lenses are expensive and most cameras/lenses you can get for under 500€/$ will need a CLA. Voigtlander and Konica lenses are a good alternative, also some Canon LTM lenses.

DON'T buy LTM Leica lenses, most are trash.
>>
>tfw will probably never use a Leica
>>

>no framelines wider than 50mm

DROPPED

Personally I'll go either for a M2 or M6 when I can afford upgrading to a Leica. Currently using a beat up Bessa R2.
>>
>>3191102
Also consider M4-P if you want to shoot 28mm. It has the same viewfinder as the M6, but lacks a meter.

That picture is exactly why I constantly think about ditching my a6000 and getting a k-70 + wr lens. It's a shame that pentax isn't more popular, they put out some good equipment that can take a beating for people who actually go out and do things and not just take picture of their morning coffee with vsco filters

Funny thing is it actually works, as in sealed body with WR kit lens. Had a few shootings in light to moderate rain and some in snow and the lens never fogged up or went wonky in the cold.
Though in the rain I reduced my zooming action to a few and constantly wiped off the top of the barrel extension so it won't drag any moisture inside.
Extra wiping when I put it away and at the end of the day after downloading my RAWs I put it in a drybox for the night.
Having WR doesn't mean you don't need to care about your equipment
Why other manufacturers can't make the design with a few properly placed gaskets and O-rings is beyond me, let alone premium lenses needing a UV filter for full sealing. (I'm looking at you, Canon!)

It is worth the expenses when you go /out/ a lot, otherwise just shoot with what you have.
>>
>>3191676
It's not that others can't do it, they just don't do it at the entry/one up from entry level. A D7000-series camera is sealed to the same level as a D800/810.
>>
>>3191682
Yes, I know, but the main thing about Pentax is they do this with the kit lens as well.
A sealed body is only sealed if the lens is also sealed.
>>
>>3191682
The D7500 is not, amongst other features the sealing was also simplified.

Should photography be considered an art form?
All you do pretty much is fuck around with camera settings, push the button, then fuck around with it some more in photoshop. There isn't much skill involved since you're just taking pictures of shit other people have already made most of the time or you're paying a bunch of money to go travel and take pictures of nature. The only time photography can be seen as something cool or interesting is when you take pictures of things that are once in a life time or in dangerous settings, but that isn't really a skill thing but more about just being at the right place at the right time. An example of this would be of that picture with some riot somewhere in the middle east with the golden ratio... I don't have it, but I would appreciate if somebody posted it. So should photography be considered a form of art despite it not involving much skill?

>Should photography be considered an art form?

It has been considered art since the first cameras were created.
>>
>>3191539
Yes, photography is art.

First off, you’re minimizing the importance of understanding the technical level of photography. Saying we just “fuck around with camera settings” is like saying a painter just “wiggles a brush around on some canvas”.

Second, you’re ignoring a lot of creative work that goes into it. Choosing locations, lighting, perspective, framing your shot, composing the scene, choosing the best moment to hit the shutter, choosing your exposure, and any work you put into post processing, all of these are creative, artistic acts.

It looks easy from the outside, and I will grant that it’s a form of art where you can get good art purely by accident, but a good photographer will get consistently better results than a beginner, and the rules of composition when making a photo are the same as when making a painting, it’s just a matter of deciding what doesn’t go in the frame instead of deciding what does.

You haven't even defined what you mean by "art".

Good evening, /p/

My busy season is slowing down so it's time to post some of the new stuff. As usual, it's going to be a mix of images from the past few months. Had a very busy summer and then had nearly 6 weeks of autumn between Canada, Colorado, and Utah.

I'm going to start with a twilight shot from my last day of backpacking in Canada. I've found that Velvia 50 has a very surreal way of rendering this brief window of predawn light, and it only seems to work if you get up into high altitude and have a towering mountain that will catch the light at the right angle. This is about 30 minutes before the actual sunrise, and for just about 5 minutes there is enough light to pull off a Velvia exposure. After that window the sky gets too bright and washed out and then the mountain will get dark and lose the apparent side lighting. The result is about a 2 minute exposure that captures some of the true colors, albeit with a bit of a warm and purple shift in hue.

The goal is just go by the best bear safety practices. Store your food away from the tent either in a locker or in a tree, don't eat in your tent, etc. Hiking solo is the most likely time you'll run into a bear on the trail, but I've found it to be such a rare occasion. I carry bear spray but haven't yet had to use it. The few times I have run into a bear they are typically very uninterested in me and they just continue foraging as if I wasn't there.

That said, shit could always go down. But the risks of being in bear country are far more exaggerated than anything. It's a much safer activity than driving to work, but being mauled by a bear makes a far better news story than a fatal car crash so it's become a part of our modern culture that leaves a large percentage of people literally afraid to go outside.

Now I have heard some stories about flying squirrels destroying your hanging food in Canada. That would suck to wake up and have all your food torn to shreds.

Another shot on Provia, I possibly posted this the last time I made a thread.

yeah I guess I should have ran a quick sharp mask on her pic before posting although I'd probably masked everything but the eyes/hair/mouth, I prefer the soft look on her face and clothing

The eyes should always be sharp, no matter what else is in the frame. You can blur anything else to taste.

I have a question for guys like you.
I've been shooting film for many years now. I've always much preferred medium format film due to the dynamic range and colours. It's also been the only way I could afford to shoot high quality photos. However, now I can afford either a very high quality $3,000 medium format scanner, or I could spend that money on a high-end DSLR and get some good lenses.

Question is: have digital sensors improved in terms of dynamic range and colour to the point where its comparable to a 6x7 negative? Also, is the dynamic range comparable? Last time I used a DSLR was about 3 years ago.

I would probably go for a good mirrorless, then use that for scanning my film as well.

Digital and film see quite different uses from me, I like both. That said I don’t really think about dynamic range and stuff when shooting.
>>
>>3191610
I guess I think about dynamic range because I mainly shoot landscapes or nature.

V700 with betterscanning holders is all you need. It will get you 95% there if setup properly and you aren't printing wider than 20". Otherwise d810/850, a7rii/iii or k-1 are more than enough.

Pretty good I'd say. Got the XA2 for about $50, without flash.

The only real issue to this project would be finding curators. I need at least two people who can come online 2-3 times a week and help decide and organize. I'll choose 2 (maybe more) curators by the week's end (Saturday Night), If anyone would like to help, you must have the following,:

>Discord
>Photo Editing/Organizing software
(Preferably Photoshop And/Or Lightroom)
>Online a minimum of 2 days a week, when can be negotiated
>Color accurate monitor/interface
>gmail account (easier communicating)
>Flickr Account

email this account with Discord info.

Would love to help man but can't really guarantee regular/scheduled time.
>>
>>3191509
Not scheduled per se, any 2 or three days a week work, don't have to be consecutive either

>>3191285
You're ignoring the best advice ITT.

>>3191660
Not completely ignoring it. I can do it myself, though it would be helpful to have another hand pick what goes on the book. I've got a broad range of things I find good.

Here we discuss techniques, gear and anything else related to capturing video footage. Please don't pretend to be an expert if you don't know what you're talking about. Kindly leave your ego at the door.
Posting short films or other work you've done is encouraged.

We tend to use and recommend DSLRs/mirrorless cameras because they provide phenomenal picture quality for their price, have large sensors (ie the same size used in high-end cinema cameras and higher) and have interchangeable lenses. In contrast, consumer camcorders normally have much smaller sensors and a fixed lens.

How do I into recording a conversation between two people for a short film?
It's a fairly serious talk but I don't want it to be completely static and boring.
>>
>>3191615
I honestly cannot provide you with some form of decisive formula other than just suggesting to experiment with different framings and cuts yourself, there are far too many arbitrary ways on how to make a conversation visually interesting and you'll have to consider what substantiates that conversation in the context of your film. I can, however, tell you something you should wholly avoid: shot reverse shot. Because that shit is boring.
>>
>>3191615
Adding on to >>3191628, maybe we could spit out some ideas if you tell us what the conversation is about? Is it friendly or antagonistic? Does one character hold a significant position of power over the other or are they supposed to be on the same hierarchical level of importance? What are the themes of your film and how does that particular conversation relate to them?

>>3191615
I typed a big long answer then accidentally hit escape so I'll just wait for more info. Seriously, what kind of stupid website design accounts for a one-button post delete? Fucksake.
