Who would use a 600 f/4 at f/6.3 while trying to catch fast action in low light?

Also:

>Max aperture: f/6.2

My guess is zoom such as Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5 - 6.3 with EXIF discrepancy.

Either way, good shot.

don't get discouraged if you can't seem to get it at first

getting good pans isn't something you'll master immediately, most of the technique is just learning muscle memory, so practice until you git gud
>>
>>2593756
The one point I left out was that motion blur is not caused by shutter speed, but by camera motion. On a typical race track, at around 150-200mm equivalent, a 1/125th pan will give you some descent blurring and a sharp car. A very long focal length, shot at 1/250th of a second, can give a lot of motion blur because you've moved the camera comparatively far. A short focal length would necessitate a longer shutter speed... unless the subject was moving very very fast. Consider that.

Wondering if you guys could help me. I'm looking for a photograph that is similar to pic related. It is a portrait of a girl who is holding a melting ice cream cone. She might be licking it, I'm not sure. It could be an album cover or something similar.

Can we have a drone thread?

I just ordered the Phantom 2 Vision+ v3.0 pic related.

It has a 14mp HD camera on a 3 axis gimbal. The camera direction can be controlled in flight.

Share your aerial photos/videos or link to the best Youtube drone videos and please give any advice on flying and owning a drone.

After months of lurking on /p/ I finally gave in and bought a GR.
I'm new to cameras, only ever having used a friend's Canon 550d and my own iPhone and getting an interest in photography through that.

Before I go out and shoot, is there anything you would recommend doing beforehand?
All I know is that I should be shooting in RAW and that VSCO is the way forward for edits.

Tips much appreciated.

So guys I am planing to buy a camera for documentaries/shorts and what I have read so far the Blackmagic cameras seem to be great value, especially the upcoming 4k Ursa mini. I avoided BM so far because I didn't like their form factor - the pocket camera is fine but the studio and production cameras are a mess. But the Ursa mini has a handy size, is reasonable modular, so what do you guys think? Any alternatives I should consider?

Pros:
>internal 4k RAW, ProRes in all flavours
>global shutter up to 30fps
>nice 1080p screen
>XLR audio, internal backup mic, audiometers
>active EF mount
>no proprietary connections, formats, storage
>two card slots
>SDI, time code
>inexpensive shoulder mount kit

cons:
>expensive V-mount batteries, plate sold separately

buy some good audio gear too, don't just rely on camera xlr ins...

good audio and mediocre video is very watchable, the opposite isn't.
>>
>>2594247
I know that good audio is key to a good movie but sometimes it's actually more difficult to achieve the sound you desire than the images especially if you want to separate something from the ambient noise.

I own a Zoom H6 so I can use the camera as a second recorder for the stereo output of the H6 and plan to buy at least one new shotgun mic. I would like to get at least two decent wireless lav mics but these are pretty expensive too so I will try to get good audio just with a boom pole, shotgun mics and maybe a stereo ambient mic.
>>
>>2594247

>don't just rely on camera xlr ins

oh, fuck off. I've recorded audio directly into cameras before and the difference is negligible. audiofags are the worst, I CANNOT stand that jwsoundgroup forum
>>
>>2594309
I think he suggested not to rely on camera audio not because the quality is necessarily worse but cameras often lack basic features that make it way easier to handle audio like limiters, compressors, lo cuts sometimes even phantom power.

Another problem is that less expansive cameras like some dslrs and the GoPros for example have problems with synchronizing audio and video and sometimes mess up your audio completely even from external sources. Dedicated devices even cheap ones handle this better simply because audio is just not as important to a camera manufacturer.

And of course codecs and compression are often a factor as well.

there are a couple routes

1. contact the band directly. find their publicist's or manager's email. say "hi i'm a photographer looking to shoot the show in CITY"

sometimes you can contact the venue too depending on how big the band is. usually it's just the venue contacting the band so you look a little better but you have less of a chance if you're just some random person

2. find a local publication to shoot for. depending on how big they are you may need a portfolio. well actually, you definitely need a portfolio. shoot a bunch of bar shows at the beginning. have enough shit to gather so you at least LOOK professional. i hate the word professional because it's so subjective but it's better than "unprofessional"

i got lucky with my first publication, the editor in chief was at a show i was shooting for fun and he approached me. i told him i was just doing it for myself and he was like "hey we were looking for a photographer for this show but couldn't get anyone, can we use your photos?" and it went from there

my second publication was a lot harder, I was at the point where I've shot a number of closed theater shows and had my own website. they were interested but changed their mind because i was too eager with my responses so they called me impatient and unprofessional and stopped replying. three weeks later they email me back apologizing and the rest is history.

(2/2)

publications are cool because you have much more clout and have better odds of getting the show. since the second publication, i've only been rejected from one show and that was rick ross. you can even get into festivals with extra tickets for your friends if you're with one that's big enough.

freelance sucks though because nobody gives a shit who you are unless you can build yourself up. nobody gives a shit about you until everybody gives a shit about you, there's really no in-between. you won't know that until people are emailing you commissions for shows and you don't have to do a single thing to find work. keep in mind we're still talking about music. there are plenty of no names in certain fields while they're huge in other ones. i dunno, whatever.

publications suck because there really isn't much freedom. they will want you to shoot shows you don't want to shoot. you'll have to shoot at venues that are very hard to work with. prepare yourself to almost never use your flash. they're also obviously a pain to get into at times. it's not super hard, it's just annoying dealing with people who don't understand you. do research.

tl;dr- make connections or be rly good
