like 3 or 4 years. If it's a good day, a hike or a trip or something I may shoot up to a roll or so a day. Sometimes I'll just not shoot for a week or two, can't say I have a schedule...

>Got my first DSLR in 2013 and just now figured out that the reason for why my pictures look dull and washed out is because I've been running auto white balance all the time and never adjusted it either in camera or in post
What other beginner mistakes have you made or see other people doing all the time?

are you talking about manually setting the white balance by pointing at a white card?

I am 2 months into film photography and i've decided to finally try this 400mm lens that came with my x700, I haven't used it at all and I assume I have to do some sort of adjustment to the stops, how on earth do I go about this? I have no idea, I also have a x3 tele converter, what effect would that have on my exposure, it looks extremely dark thru the viewfinder

Better question:

What girl are you trying to spy on with a 400mm plus 3X TC?
>>
So what the board is saying is that if I have a question like this it would be quicker and more precise to just go take a few shots with a couple of different setups, compare my results, and draw my own conclusions? Basically, you're saying that between the trolls and the idiots, whoever IS right will be shouted down, so it's not even worth asking here? And I'm not even OP.

All feedback is very valuable to me given that I have stage 3 bone cancer. I am really trying to live life in the photography "fast lane". Just because I have cancer doesn't mean you have to be nice in your comments, I want the complete human experience. Happy photo taking.

You're pics are good technically, but I'm willing to bet you just used auto.
Go outside and challenge yourself, try and take pictures of things you wouldn't normally photograph, also shoot on manual mode.

It's a great lens and you'll enjoy it. It's sharp as fuck and gives gorgeous contrast and color rendition on film or digital. It outresolves a funifilm xt1.

bad

start looking at other photos and try to replicate them. Study composition, framing, and posing.

Don't bother posting anymore because I can tell that your photos are not ready for display.

Keep shooting, though.

This is why /p/ is shit and you shouldn't get critique here. Go somewhere that you can get advice like this >>3173035 when it's far, far less likely to have some racist, condescending overtone.

This is a great photo. People will say that it's blurry and not technically perfect but that doesn't matter. The composition and subject matter are especially striking. Not to mention the eye contact and great storytelling. I wish i took this shot.

I quite like it, though as previously said can be polarising. I'm drawn to the colour right away. I see there isn't much in the photo to actually look at, but I want to keep looking for something. It's beautifully sharp and detailed. I can see why some people wouldn't give it too much thought as well though. Imo, it's a really nice shot, I'd be thrilled if I could do it
>>
>>3172021
Oh here we go chosis giving shit critiques once again. This one photo is better than ANYTHING you have every shot please leave this site.
>>
I don't know why , but I like it.
>>
>>3170560
I like this kind of shots, I also like to do it myself. It's simply a highly graphical and minimalistic approach.It just colors and structure, sometimes with quiet tones of feelings.

I also disagree with some opinions in here like "more contrast", "better light", "better with a person". This all very likely would make it cheesy and dull to me.
>>
>>3173046
forgot: the only thing I would criticize is the focus. It would be even better if it was sharp everywhere, the horizone is not in focus.

Olympus Thread!

Can anyone with a PEN F show me their color wheel? I'm looking for a lovely film look and know very little about color theory. I guess I just want a classic chrome look like on my X100t.

Yes. You take pictures because you want the most accurate result possible. If you’re talking about ‘muh character’, well you’re no different than those who use filters.
