Different between a snapshit and photograph.

A lot of you have been asking this question lately.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BdGNoyVBVi2/?taken-by=chosis7

here is a public art piece installed in south beach miami where I was on vacation last week. I saw many many photographers taking a photo of it. Just it. Nothing else. No unique story, framing or anything. I spent 2 hours at the location till I could get the photo I wanted with the narrative I wanted. Here I was able to play on the "Stuck" theme of the art instaltion by using a car physically stuck in traffic and a low wage worker stuck financially in their job.

Your job as a photographer is to help craft a story not to just take photos of random things with no creativity or context

Aren't you going to be dead in a few months? What good is making a career when you could just make good art instead of waiting your time appealing to normies.

Guys i need your help for a bad ass project that has finally coming my way tomorrow night! Its in a hotel room with a women and she said for the sake of practise that i can take nude and exotic photos of her. I have no time to get lights which i know are essential, i have a nikon d7200 and a sigma 18- 35. I am confident on my ability to pose but in regards to light, cheap room lighting - i am screwed...

If you have time left you can get a bunch of cheap lamps and colored bulbs and go for some sort of retro look.

So i didnt have the time to get the essential gear, and cant wait for the next foto shoot using an external light to bounc of the walls, will give so much flexibility with creating my own shadows and shit. Hotel lights were crap, but my composition certainly pulled off a few sweet pics. Get out there. Was a great experience! Sigma 18- 35 1.8 was perfect for this situation, but i am still learning , used a tripod also, but was restrictive

It's easy. You just take the money in cash and then don't pay taxes on it.

Illegal, but easy.

If you want to carry on with this as a business, use a simple contract to describe names / places / dates and the cost etc. Term any "deposit" (would recommend 20-25%) as a 'booking fee' in your contract. The word deposit refers to refundable monies, you don't want it to be as other anon has said.

That's not true
It's people who take photos FOR instagram that aren't photographers. If you take photos and post maybe one to instagram if you wanna then that's fine. But taking photos purely for instagram is fucking retarded

NO SHAME

Travelling to Amsterdam for 3 nights for the first time. Never really travelled for photography before so I'm looking for advice/tips/suggestions to get the most out of my time there with a limited budget.

How do I avoid ending up with nothing but tourist snapshots? Plan out shots before-hand I guess?

Also the weather will be shit and almost everything photography in Amsterdam seems to be canals or buildings- what do if the weather stays overcast and grey and shit?

Any other general advice for travel or amsterdam?

Also, would love to see some shots of the city if anyone has been, or any other travel photography

>I'm looking for advice/tips/suggestions to get the most out of my time there with a limited budget.

Take 1 camera and 1 lens. I just saved you time and effort; no need to carry around a ton of crap and no second guessing which lens to use.

>How do I avoid ending up with nothing but tourist snapshots? Plan out shots before-hand I guess?

Don't be afraid to visit/shoot the tourist areas, but fill your time between visiting such places shooting photos as well. I shot lots between tourist destinations and typically put my camera away when I get to the really popular spots. (or shoot really loose to capture the touristicness get loads of context)

Every city has its spots geared towards tourists. This isn't the real city. Spend your time enjoying the areas that aren't designed to cater to you. Go where local people go and not just where Lonely Planet and Tripadvisor suggests.
>>
>>3222823
You first need to think about how you would expect an audience to view your pictures and what story/message you want to convey.

ie If you are shooting for a travel brochure then touristy shots are fine. That doesn't mean you can't find new stuff or new angles on old stuff.

If you are thinking more magazine article then you will need to come up with a specific angle. "My weekend in Amsterdam" wont cut it. In which case I would suggest starting here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Amsterdam. Knowing your subject is very important, and the more you know the easier it is to find interesting angles.

But "My weekend in Amsterdam" is probably fine if all you plan to do is share with friends and Instagram etc

So what do they have in Amsterdam? Architecture, old churches, canals, bridges, drugs, hookers and johns, bicycles. Where do the canals go when you get to the outskirts of town? What do they look like at first light when there is no-one around? What were they used for when they were first built and are there any vestiges of that left?
>>
>>3223125
>Take 1 camera and 1 lens
Only if all you you normally carry otherwise it is shit advice.

1. You bought the gear use it and stop looking for soft options

2. There is nothing worse than seeing a potentially great shot and knowing you left the right lens at home.

The camera body is wonderful. The best operability as a stereo camera.
But the lens is poor.

I got a camera like this decades ago from a lady my Mom worked for in West Vancouver along with a pile of other stuff.

Thing is, the nieces were going through stuff they didn't want and gave me this, a 1000 Kodachrome slides taken with it plus a viewer, a book by Karsh they were gives AND a portrait done by him of the lady and her husband. They were pretty wealthy so they did this for themselves

Anyone here have experience with publishing your own zine?

How'd you go about printing/publishing it?
Did you choose a theme, or were the photos just comprised between a certain period of time?

any of tips would be helpful. I've been feeling somewhat stagnant and figured i need a project to aim toward and im thinking of doing a zine.

Thoughts on this Instagram loved Photographer.

I like that he shares what he uses and how he does what (even though I already know)

But I feel he takes away some of the beauty in the original photos. I think he over edits.

I saw this kind of shit done by weebs as early as 2007 on deviantart.
And here we are, 10 years later, all these pictures show me is how the person behind them learnt some recipe on the web. Derivative. Not a single modicum of original thoughts.

I fucking hate those oversaturated colorful and meanigles pictures. There is no value in anything that he shot. I'm sure you can impress some normies with that shit, sadly there is nothing more besides that. Fucking hell why did instagram turn photography into such a fucking joke, everyone believes that just by bombing the saturation slider to +500 while adding some bokeh lights is the way to get "extrodanary pictures"

All this is probably followed by quotes like "i don't capture moments, i capture dreams~~~"
GOD FUCKING DAMNIT delete this gay ass stuff already, if i want to look at some fucked up -stick in the ass photos- i could shoot some pics at the Christopher Street Day. Seriously those people are a burden for humanity and should be exterminated. For fucks sake, when i look at this shitty stuff it reminds me, that i have to furiously smash my already bloodied forehead against a concrete wall, while screaming at god for birthing me into this never ending void of unrelenting agony

I think what sometimes gets forgotten is that not everyone approaches photography the same way. I would hazard a guess that most do not approach it as "art" or even as "craft", but rather to simply document things they find pleasing. So these kinds of photos might be a product of a different approach, where the photographer is using them to gain popularity and social value, and possibly just to meet people or sleep with some of these models. The lights and bokeh are like icing on the cake, at best, and afterthoughts at worst.

Post anything gear related, cameras, lenses, bags, tripods, other fashion accessories (clothing, fancy straps, Leica) etc...
Post your question here, instead of starting a new thread about which lens to buy or what are the best beginner cameras.

Can we try something a little different? Post a photo from your first year you took up photography as a hobby (if you don't have one saved, your oldest photo is also fine) along with a recent photo for comparison. Also post how long you've been shooting. Let's see how much you have improved and maybe inspire each other with these success stories.
