Some street photography I do when I make visiting of the other countries.

The best people for making photographs always is people of poverty areas.

Because they are not being afraid of looking a fool at view of others, as poverted person has not any dignity to be lost.

You can say to me harsh comments if you wish. I know already it is not good work like Alex Webb.

Great work, I love them all.

Hi /p/, photography is my hobby and I would like to try selling my photos online. I was wondering if you could give me some advice on that matter. Can you recommend me a good way to sell photos online, and also rate my photo. (be gentle, I don't have custom firmware)

Why would I buy a picture of an out of focus cat?
Custom firmware has nothing to do with that.

Shots from the weekend. I've been getting critisism for shooting too at too large aperture. I'm trying but somewhat failing at amending that.

As always, comments appreciated.
As usual, rather personal pictures. All of them taken in Okayama this weekend.

Best photo Ayya has ever taken
>>
My 3 year old nephew can paint. There are Chinese people reproducing paintings on assembly lines for sale.

Photography is not art. It is a medium, a medium for expression. Just like writing, just like painting, just like sculpture. None of these are 'art', they are all mediums for expression, which can be used as art, or as illustration, etc. I hate it when people call a medium an 'art'. They are all crafts.

Visuals are simply another form of communication. No matter what you shoot a photograph of, you are communicating something. If it is a pretty photograph of a landscape, then that is merely a visual description of how it looks. You can go as deep or as shallow as you want with any of these mediums, and your technical skill is the foundation for the idea that you wish to communicate. You can be the best technical photographer in the world, but if you're simply trying to take pretty landscape photographs, your communication will be a long descriptive visual essay on the prettiness of a location. Lame. You can have the 'deepest' concept in the world, but if you have no technical knowledge, your idea has nothing to stand upon and will communicate very poorly.

Even people who paint rooms for a living are called painters.. Professional painters.. Keep that in mind.

> No talent involved. You’re in a good place, you take a good picture. You’re in a bad place; you get nothing. It doesn’t matter if you have passion or willpower. If someone else is in the right place at the right time, they can easily capture the moment just as well, even if they’ve been handed a camera for the first time. You can’t say the same about any real art form, like playing the piano, or drawing, or sculpting, which require years of experience and practice.

You just made me realize something with this photo. I would like to get into street but have never wanted the possible pissed off person. If I start by taking pictures of people that want to stand out by their dress or manerisms, they are the type of people that wouldn't mind their picture being taken.

Otherwise, shitty shot.

I really like your portraits, especially your more recent ones. I'm not easily impressed with street photography, however, and yours isn't doing much for me. I do like a few, though (Journey, Up, Workers).

>>2550635
Your street portraits (woman pushing carts w/headphones, pedicab on phone) is not that interesting, especially compared to the great non-traditional portraits you have. You have lots of stuff in black and white that I feel would work better in color, as the bw conversion is looking bland and with little contrast. I love DSC_0014, 0313, 0211, 0094.

>>2550682
You've got a great eye for composition and PP. Add more stuff!

>>2550720
I'm jealous of your location, I love snowy misty rocky landscapes (lots of contrast!) and you captured them very well. Your portraits can be more dynamic.

Your landscapes are OK, your macro is awesome, you should do more! Also, filter out your pictures - you don't need 3-5 pictures of the same subject/location.

>>2556765
Lots of street, which I don't like much (personal taste), so I'll let someone else do the critique.

>>2558867
Your pictures are bland. You seem to live in an interesting location - find some interesting subjects, pick up a book on composition and read up on post-processing, and get some amazing pictures.

How do you people scan your film slides/negatives?
i personaly have an epson v500 but the quality i get from it for 35mm film is totally disapointing and for 120 film kinda disapointing.
i wonder if i will get better quality from dslr scanning (plus it will be raws instead of tiffs to work with then).
has anyone here made experience from switching from the lower tier epsons to dslr scanning or vice versa?
could you share your scans and your workflow on how to improve digitized film?

also film scanning general i guess

Dang son. Flatbeds confirmed for sufficient for 35mm, and beginning to rival drum scanners?
>>
>>2565611
What software did you use? If you don't mind using non-free software then PhotoAcute might be perfect. Try the trial, it's pretty straightforward.
>>
>>2565661
The example shown is probably one of those 'perfect conditions', they probably knew which pixels shifted. In real life applications you won't know which pixels shift and the results won't come close to those of that image, though the results can be pretty good as seen in >>2564934.
>>2565799
If you don't see a clear difference you must be doing something wrong. PhotoAcute example, upper right shows the normal 9000F flatbed result, upper right shows 2 scans in PhotoAcute, left 4, and right 6. Note that you might have to experiment a bit with PA to get the right profiles to avoid excessive noise and oversharpening.

I don't remember, this was about 2 years back. What is the state of the art now? I'd happily try it again. I could even think a little and write my own, this can't be too difficult.

i'm thinking about getting a m42- fmount adapter.
- should i get one with an extra element or without one ?
- have you had any bad experiences using such devices ?
- does the adapter influence the focal length an such (like a teleconverter)
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
I tried an adapter with extra element to mantain the capability to focus to infinity on APS-C sensor.
With the helios 44M (dat swirly bokeh one) at maximum aperture it's impossible to focus, I have to step down to f/4 to get something decent.
After that I tried one without element and it works fine whit near subjects.

It's all about compromises.
>>
>>2565823
What camera and what adapters precisely? Flange distance plays a huge role, there are also macro adapters with a few mm extra thickness compared to focus infinity adapters.
Also sensor size doesn't affect the focus distance.
>>
>>2565378
Without glas for macro only
With glass for normal use but with extra reflections
>>
>>2565830
Do you mean Canon needs a glass adapter for M42 lens? Pentax and Sony E does not, you know
>>
>>2565845
That is not what he means. Canon doesn't need glass for M42.


>>2565378
Glass vs no glass depends entirely on the flange distance. If your lenses come from a camera with a greater flange distance than your camera body, you don't need any glass in your adapter. The adapter just adds a bit of space between the lens and the camera body and keeps everything lined up. issues come in when your lenses are designed for a system with a flange distance that is SHORTER than your camera. in that case, the lens is meant to be closer to the sensor/film than your mount allows, and so in order to get your focus correct, glass elements need to be put in place to re-focus the cone of light coming out of the back of the lens.

This isn't a great idea, because lenses are designed for the exact amount of glass that's in their formula, to deal with aberrations, detail, etc. And another piece of glass at the back end means a re-focusing of that light path, which will always screw it up a bit. the amount of screw-up depends entirely on the quality of the adapter you're using, but you will pay upwards of $400 for an adapter to screw it up, only a LITTLE bit. to keep prices low on the budget ones, they use poor quality glass.


But anyways, because the glass is either necessary, or not, depending on the mount type, you don't need to worry about options. You'll search "? mount to ? mount adapter" and your results with all be either with glass, or without.
