What makes non-native lenses less enjoyable? Tell me what YOU personally dislike
>>
>>3045071

Exposure and wb seem to shit themselves half the time. I think it is because the camera thinks you are at f 1.

Also the focus peaking is terribly inaccurate, at least on the x-pro2.

What are some of the better third-party lenses for Nikon?

As far as Sigma, Tamron, etc
>>
>>3045127
Any Sigma Art prime. As good as Nikon's glass - or Zeiss's - for a lot less money. All the review sites are calling the 85/1.4 Art an equal to Nikon's 105/1.4, which is saying something.

Some of the Samyangs are nice too, especially if you want to do landscape astro, or otherwise don't care about autofocus. The 24/1.4, 14/2.8 and 135/2.0 have good reputations for that, and they're downright cheap for what they are.

What focal length do you people prefer for general travel/street/walk around lenses? I'm trying to narrow down what lenses I need since I just made the switch to Sony and I'm a poorfag who's only used 3 lenses, the 18-55 kit lens on Nikon and Sony cameras and the Nikkor 35mm prime, neither of which are particularly good quality compared to what's out there.

Something like the Sigma E mount 18-35 f/1.8 looks like a perfect street photography lens because it gives you the framing and depth of field that a 35mm has but still allows you to drop down to 18 in tight spots, but what do you people prefer?

>>3044719
Honestly depends on the location. If I'm going to a place where I know there will be some far away shots and can get some detail, 85mm zeiss. If I know the place will have some stuff that would benfit from a bit of a wider shot, 55mm zeiss. If I know there is going to be a lot of lanscape stuff, 24-40 tokina.

I don't think so.
At the moment retro is analog because artists used that kind of stuff to work with. They didn't switch to digital until recently.

Analog will remain vintage for long

Poor gearfag thread?
Poor Gearfag Thread.

As you can see from the photo, I'm a noob at this picturetaking business still, so I got some old commie Industar lenses, but the MFD is really far. They're OK for 40$ though, I think.

Was considering a fujian 35mm f/1.7 for taking closer shots of things (indoors, small objects, etc) or one of these weird "ABL Corp" 8mm f/2.8 C-mount lenses I found, since both are about 20 bucks and share the same adapter.

Possibly considering a less-cheap fujian 35mm f/1.6 or neewer 35mm, but uncertain about them.

Most people were shit at photography when starting out, and most of their good shots in the beginning were an accident.

There's no secret to being good, you just have to be willing to buck up and learn how to do what it is what you want to do. Develop your 'vision' of the stories you want to tell and what you want to show people, then learn how to get better at it by studying whatever is relevant to that goal. I would generally recommend taking an interest in art in general, not just photography.

How do you guys work with models?

Just got my first camera and a girl I work with offered to model for me. I got a handful of good shots, but for the most part I felt like I wasn't communicating with her enough other than the occasional "stand here" or "look there."

In other words I spilled my spaghetti everywhere

What's the proper way to do this? What should I tell them? How should I interact with them?

Models are sheep.

I find this picture very inspiring. Where can I find more work in this style?

His videos are about gear and not about guidelines and basics.

I did two shoots yesterday and one or both models commented they appreciated:

1. I asked if they were bringing a chaperone/handler/assistant to be on set with them even though I had worked with both of them in the past. Modeling can make people feel vulnerable, do what you can to mitigate that.

2. Humility. I was trying out some new things and one girl mentioned she had never seen that before. I told her I was ripping off a Youtube video I saw, and she was impressed that I gave credit where credit was due.

3. Refreshments. When working out shoot details I always ask models if they have a favorite drink or snack that I can have on hand, especially for shoots that are going to last a couple hours. (I think I stole this from Jason Lanier?) Keep things light and to foods that won't ruin an outfit or get stuck in teeth. It also gives models something to do while you're changing lights/backgrounds/etc.

4. Quick turn around. I always try to process one teaser shot immediately after I'm done shooting. This not only helps with my online presence, but gives them things they can put on their Instagram, FB, or whatever about things they are CURRENTLY doing. (Sometimes my projects take months to get done).

5. Crediting. I always am sure to credit the models in my online newsfeed AND link to their other work. Not everyone does that, but I think they should.

In addition to what anon(s) said above, things like this make models feel like you recognize that they are a person with more going on in their lives than just this shoot. If they feel friendly and comfortable around you they will talk with their other model friends and refer work to you, work with you in the future, etc.
Most of the models I've worked with have modeling pages, and from those it is pretty easy to see what kind of work they're into. If they have some lingerie/implied nude photos and you want to do a nude shoot with them, just ask.

The way to do it is you have to approach them like an artist. Look, you're not going to get anything out of it if they're not present. They have to be present while you shoot. What do I mean by present? Well, certainly not that typical girlish happy go lucky take a cute photo of me tehee bullshit. That doesn't work. So first you give them your hand and then you sit on a chair. You need to have a scenario planned out. Just sit and wait. Wait until it gets awkward. She's gonna ask something like "so....where do I go"? HOLD YOUR HORSES. Sit and say nothing. After a while, you simply murmur barely audibly something like "just stand there". She's probably gonna smile when you pick up your camera. At this point, you have to YELL at her. Yes YELL. Go with something like "Do you think this is a fucking game?". "IS THIS A FUCKING GAME TO YOU?" She's probably going to apologize and/or want to leave. THIS IS THE CRITICAL POINT OF THE SHOOT. Her state is now probably broken down, she's confused and very much in the moment. Now you just have to slightly console her but keep the anxious present state. Say something like "look, I'm sorry, it's just really important you're mindful of what's going on here. i have to shoot you and get something out of you that's more than just your typical girl photo OK?". She's probably still going to be undecided at this point. NOW YOU SIMPLY SHOOT THE FIRST PHOTO. JUST LIKE THAT. Without asking her. BOOM. "That's exactly what I want". Here's another. BOOM. "Looks fantastic, we're going somewhere now". Slowly you build her confidence back up and she's really into it now. You take your photos and you just go the best shots you could have. Then after the shoot you apologize again, say you sometimes have to go the extra mile and challenge the models to get the photos you need. And here's the kicker, SHE'S GOING TO THANK YOU.

Why the fuck? It's not like removing the prongs saves you a lot of weight or something. The F mount has 60 years of accumulated useless baggage and prehistoric mechanical linkages, the indexing prongs are hardly the only thing. Modern lenses have electronic contacts that tell the camera all of the lens specs and yet they still have little tabs and indentations on the mount that identify it as AI-S type and tell AI cameras the maximum aperture of the lens. And they still mechanically stop down the lens in the two thousand and seventeenth year of our lord.

Because they look fucking stupid.

Prongs are sexy.

Converted non-ai to ai lenses like my 55mm 3.5 micro normally have the prongs removed.

1dx2 is far better in that tier

What were you trying to go for with this pic? Angle and proximity feels awkward

I is important. I is smart. I is kind.
