Keep taking pictures. Motivation, desire, inspiration...all of those things are important, but so is work ethic.

Keep doing the work, and when you're motivation returns, you might find you have an interesting series to build off moving forward.

Thanks for bumping anyway. But has nobody ever struggled with them? I'm forgetting digitizer for now, considering some options. >>3222131 this is about 50% cropped test, mf, handheld purely against sunlight, closest that I could get with my primes in sharpness. Mainly just wondering if I'll get any better results if go and buy macro to get some more pixles out of it.

Was also looking at these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Opteka-Professional-Digital-Camera-Duplicator/dp/B00J7RL2RM/ref=sr_1_14?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1515940049&sr=1-14&keywords=digital+duplicator, but they seem just some cheap plastic and glass thrown together.

So yeah to keep it short I accidentally dropped my Stylus Epic and the lens cover slide popped off and I popped it back in but now slides back and fourth freely which fucks up the on/off mechanism and ability to keep the thing off. Anyone else experience this? How do I potentially fix it? Manuals that I look up have no mention of this or pieces in it that I may have potentially lost in the drop.

pic unrelated but from the same cam

There are probably a couple springs that went flying when it popped off. If it didn't happen in a convenient place like at home or someplace where you can go back and look for them, consider yourself boned.
>>
>>3222259
yeah the floor was swept when I left so def boned.

I wonder if there's a way to tell what part broke off so I could fix it. Kinda disheartening to know there is no resistance to hold the door closed.
>>
Maybe keep the door off, but try and find the "switch" that activates the on and off. Then add a leaver that allows you to toggle the on/off.

You'd have to find something to protect the lens when not in use

Shitty thing to happen though, hopefully you can get it working again, it's a great camera. I haven't really seen many resources dedicated to fixing broken P&S cameras. Maybe you can find a local repair shop that would be able to fix it? It doesn't seem like it would be to complicated to someone who understands how cameras function.
>>
Been awhile since I took one of these apart, but I think it's similar to the XA. There's a little metal cylinder that rests between the clamshell and top of the camera body. As you open/close the clamshell this cylinder rolls in place. The clamshell has a little groove dug out of the underside where this cylinder pops into when you open the clamshell (causing it to stay open while you shoot).

Take off the clamshell and try to find this groove and the corresponding little groove in the top of the camera body where this cylinder would rest. To fix the camera you'll need another little cylinder (prob ~1.5mm in diameter). You could try getting a round, plastic toothpick and cutting it down to the appropriate length (prob ~ 3mm but use the groove to base this size on).

Hope this helps.

Over the last couple of years I took a lot of photos while traveling (mostly landscape), but I never really had someone to criticize my work. I posted a few shots from Nepal about one year ago and received some good and helpful feedback, so I'm trying it again. Feel free to ask for locations.

Would be great to read some useful feedback.

Also: travel photography thread. I guess.

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...

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.

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.

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.
