What are some rules or tricks that will help you get better at taking photos?
The one i have so far is only 1 shot per scene. No more 20 shots burst.
What do you do to help you get better?

Read cinematography books and acquire a wealth of ideas.
One shot per scene doesn't seem like a good idea, any given amount is a bad idea IMO. If anything learn to previsualize so you can get worthy photos.
>>
>>4299193
1 shot per scene is the opposite of what you should do

Bracket, OVFs are too low res, EVFs need too much zoomy scrolly. Most good photographers bracketed and worked their negatives in the darkroom and now they edit their raws, same shit. Ansel adams left behind hundreds of practice negs, most street photographers left behind thousands of unused photos.

You're conflating photography with marksmanship - one shot one kill.

Do you use image editing/camera management software? I did use a user script for quick compression on the reply window, I didn't knew it strips all metadata from the images

Why is it that when I'm spotted with my camera trying to take a picture of something people immediately come up and also take a picture in the same direction using their smartphones? They don't even know why or what I am looking at.

Is this mental Illness of not wanting to be left out?

actual reply: no, it's basically just an EM5.3 refresh but they didn't even add a 'mark' at the end like the OM1 mark II. iirc the one new thing it has is handheld high res mode but i don't know how well it actually works in practice
both are plastic-fantastics compared to the steel brick of the EM5.2, but the 5.3 and OM5 also have a better sensor and PDAF instead of the older noisier one on the 5.2 that only has contrast detection AF and constant-AF that's basically useless so if you can deal with a flimsier feeling body and possibly breaking the tripod mount, the 5.3 or newer is better, but the 5.3 is also 'good enough' and the OM5 is way too fucking expensive new for what it is

I pray the OM-5.2 will be metal, though I know it won't be. That with better bird AF, the 12-45/4 is basically my dream. While I'm at it, a pro 70-300 or 50-200 would be nice too.

AI image generation has already peaked. Remember all those articles when it was winning all these competitions, have not heard one of them for months lol.

Even across all the other 4chan boards, I see less and less people posting those types of images everyday.

Its over, its still way off matching photography and its unlikely it can ever get much better than it is as what that prompt really means is create an average image of every image of a chair in a well/water you have in your database.

You have so little control, you are just at the mercy of whatever that is. Also that system almost always has nonsensical parts in the image.

I have absolutely zero expectation of AI replacing photography now and have forgotten all about ai image making.

This is the truth. LLM's are a huge leap from an academic standpoint, and the fact they were conversational and effective unlike prior attempts such as Siri, Cortana, etc was stunning.

However, we're now in the deflation part of the hype cycle, and what we're seeing is the model of AI that more sober minded folks were talking about when LLM's debuted:
- A more effective version of existing 'intelligent assistants' like Siri
- Potential automation of bio robot jobs (think Indian Call Centers, etc)
- A useful tool for fuzzy matching, deployment of non-customized ML analytics, etc (think basic sentiment analysis, classifiers, etc)
- A useful search/exploratory mechanism for complex technical documentation (LLM's are really good at generating SQL and other scripting type languages)

They're big deal, but not in the way the average plebiscite thinks they are.
>>
>>4303615

I don’t even think it will ever be able to do Indian call centre jobs. There is just always risk it starts saying the wrong thing and making the company liable for millions in damages. Even if it’s worked fine for months you have zero certainty it won’t start making errors at any point in time. It could also only give the average answer the last 50-100 or whatever calls said on the topic, good luck with all the minor contributing details that will be different every time.
I see it more likely as a tool 3 Indians using ai assistance to kind of search possible answers while the call is happening can prob equal what 4 Indians could do without the ai. Ie a small reduction in staff from people using ai as an assistant but everything always needing human review.
It’s prob only useful to photographers as an assistant who can write first drafts or marketing content or draft emails to clients that will still need review etc.

It has no awareness or understanding of anything, it’s just useful to give an approximate starting point for human review.

Also why the image side is useless for photography, a first draft of a photo isn’t an email you can easily edit, it’s a not quite photo quality image you have no way to fix into a photo.
>>
>deep cobblestone well
>every image is like 6" deep
>>4303647
If they cared about customer service they wouldn't have shipped those call centers to india in the first place. If AI can do even 10% as good a job for cheaper they will absolutely do that. And when it gets it wrong there will be nobody to complain to.

Why is it that when I film in higher resolutions, the colors become much different (better, more natural looking).

I have a sonya6400, and the 4k footage has tremendously bette colors than 1080p footage. And I now just got a new gopro, and I see the same pattern. 4k has much better (more natural) colors than 1080p, and 5,3k is even better than 4k.

I've also tried youtubing some resulotion comparison videos on the same camera (with the same settings), and it's the same. Higher quality nearly always produces better and more natural colors.

What the hell is going on? I would like to not be limited to the highest possible resolution, but I just cannot unsee how bad the colors look on 1080p.

Post scanning rigs.

Apparently the main caveat of buying a dedicated scanner is slow as shit workflow, having to edit the picture with shitty software BEFORE moving to the next frame, and feed it manually yet.

Have you built a scanning rig? Did you order the kit online? What can you make a backlight of? How do you ensure the camera is completely perpendicular and the film is correctly aligned? Tell me ideas to feed the negatives without scratching them.

I have a Nikon D3300 with the kit 18-55 zoom. I've read most use a 55mm macro prime. I only have the kit lens and some "macro" extension rings. Is that good enough?

Pic not mine, but an interesting setup.

got around to finishing a mounting print and throwing a magic arm on the thing and it was actually quite smooth. was able to shoot a full 2:1 on a 6x8 negative fairly painlessly lol. one thing i discovered is that as sturdy as magic arms can be, the single small mounting point makes them whole thing susceptible to the camera's moment of inertia. gotta find a sturdier way. it just meant waiting 3-4 seconds for the thing to stop wobbling and using a remote trigger. with some more refinement it might be a pretty wicked way to scan things, if tedious.
problem is it seems i hit those diminishing returns. and an unexpected issue is the workflow for processing 32+ images. Photoshop twisted itself into knots merging it and took forever. and doing any editing or work at all dragged, and died trying to export. affinity photo did a merge quite impressively quickly, but it is locked into some kind of spherical projection for its panorama merge which is useless. seems aside from fun experiment, not really worth the trouble.

>large and/or hires, finding that threshold so your film grain doesnt look like square pixels is important.

Hey ken rockwell, go ahead and scan your crappy snapshits of your suburb or your fat kid in your crappy 12mp jpg. Save en as 8bit too, bc you cant see that difference either. Its really cool that you have no idea the difference between an archival scan and whatever crap you think is “good enough” for your snapshits, but the thread full of people building rigs for archival scanning is not going to be the target audience for your worn-out shtick.

No, the kind of aspie nerds that fill the internet think photography is about the gear. They are fucking hopeless & need to imagine everything is a black & white, all-or-nothing binary choice. These people are idiots. The world didn't stop painting landscapes just because the Sony A7ivxrS3 shoots it at 600megapixels. Dont be so fucking german.

Neat. Are you controlling it just with gcode over serial? I am curious what the accuracy/repeatability of the positioning is. Best case is it would be accurate enough that the images would just line up and you could combine them with an imagemagick script or somesuch. I doubt it is that accurate but maybe good enough to use something less computationally intensive than full pano stitching.
With gcode scripting + tethering + automatic stitching it shouldn't matter so much how tedious it is, 'cause you'd just kick it off and go shitpost for a while like you'd do with an old fashioned scanner.

I used commands over serial with pronterface for this. It has manual controls that can override the end stops in the firmware and I couldn’t figure out which g codes do that. I ripped the tool head off and this printer had 2/3 homing end stops on the tool head so I couldn’t use typical g-code cause it can’t home lol. I feel like with a solid sturdy mount, it would be fairly repeatable, it’s on a sturdy linear rail and the steppers resolve to like 0.1mm or something like that. I think it would be more useful for 4x5 or larger formats maybe. Even at 1:1 would still take a few shots.

Sup friends!

TL;DR: Wanting to get back into photography, is a Canon 600D viable or should i upgrade?

I used to be real dedicated hobby photographer/videographer some 10 years ago. Bought a Canon 600D while still in school, and used it avidly for a couple of years. As time passed life and work took up more time, phone cameras got better and the DSLR has mostly been collecting dust for the past 10 years.

Just got back from a trip to Japan though, where I actually brought the camera, and god damn it sparked my fire for photography again! Obviously most photos i took on my trip is pretty shitty since I've lost all experience from spending the past decade only taking pictures with phones on full-auto and todays phones with 1000x the compute power of a DIGIC 4 does alot of (AI) filter magic and HDR to put my DSRL photos to shame.

Still I really liked the creative feel of taking pictures with a real camera and I have no doubt that a good photographer with a competent camera still beats the living crap out of a phone, especially with glass fit for the situation.

So to my question: How competent is a Canon EOS 600D / Rebel T3i / Kiss X5 today?
Obviously I will continue using it to regain my skills, but will it hinder me alot compared to getting a modern camera or is it still a legit viable option in 2024, and I should spend my money on good lenses instead?

For me, I need the weather / dusk sealing. I do not use the tripod often for my shooting, so the IBIS is welcome. The high MP count should be helped with clarity with IBIS on. I haven't actually ever turned off the IBIS, so I wouldn't know how much it truly helps.

Try turning sharpening off by default. It can make noise much worse. You will always get some degree of noise like this at higher ISO.
If you have some automatic light leveling on, it might make it more pronounced as well.

Being thrifty is the opposite of a poverty cult, consooming in excess is how you remain poorfag

I suppose, if your strategy for getting rich was throwing almost all of your money at a desperate bid for a 100x ie: options, crypto, leverage.

For the rest of us, it's a minor expense, and the nicer your camera is, the more competitive it will remain for the forseeable future, ie: no one will say "looks like a phone" for at least 20 years. The fuckin 5diii still looks like a hasselblad next to phones, it's just a big clunky POS.

there's being thrifty like "r5? got my 5dsr for a song, son!" and then there's "just dont expect anything nice, you shouldnt ever want nice things, you're doing something wrong, you dont NEED...blablabla buy this 12mp sony"

One frivolous expense and another and another all add up to the poorfag's perpetual credit card debt.
