I tried that (at the suggestion of someone else) and I failed. No-one gave a shit.
As a hopeless NEET aspie, I'd hoped to have made even a basic income.
Posting my work on IG also proved to be pointless, with terrible engagement, so I gave that up.
It's clear that my work only matters to me, so I am proceeding on that basis.

You ever been threatened or assaulted while taking photos in public?

People in small towns really don't like street photography (from personal experience) but most of the time, if you're open and friendly they back down. I think a lot of people think I'm working for an insurance company or a law firm. But once I explain it's just something I do for fun, they relax.

I've found also that gear matters a lot. If you've got a chonker lens, it scares people. But if you get something compact, people don't feel as threatened. It's about being open and not looking 'too professional'

Search tags. Unlike IG, the tags work. But you only get 5 of them that feed into the algo. Follow and like the people using that tag and you'll get a nice curated photography feed very quick. Some great stuff on there and the image quality is much higher and you can post any crop ratio you wish.

Honestly landscapes are the most difficult category to stand out in. Even people who aren't into photography have been exposed to really great landscape shots. I also think a problem with traditional landscapes is that it's difficult to illicit an emotion other than 'that's beautiful'. I've seen people's work who make their living off landscape photography and I struggle recall a single photo. All landscapes start to blur together for me.

i've been on tumblr for a few months. it's pretty easy to get a good feed going and you can format your page in pretty much any way. unfortunately i believe the site search function is login-walled so random people outside of tumblr will never find you, but the blog pages themselves are not login-walled they way they are on other platforms last i checked. so you can at least link outsiders to it

Hi, I've always wanted to get into photography so a week or so ago I pulled the trigger on an used D7000 for $97, which came with this AF-S NIKKOR 105mm 1:1.4E ED lens, is it any good? Was I scammed? What can I do with this combo and what lense should I get next? This one doesn't get all I want in the frame at the same time usually and I'm kinda disappointed. Should I sell this one and get another one? For how much? Thanks.

Hey /p/, newfag here.

Last year I bought a Canon r50, had it for a month and then my house got broken into and it was stolen (along with lots of stuff as well). I liked it, but I didn't really have enough time to get attached to it and was left feeling pretty discouraged from getting a new one, but I'm getting an itch for photography again. I have a Sony a5000, but I don't really gel with it.

Should I get the same camera or are there other good options to consider? I want a compact all-rounder, night shooting capabilities would be cool, but ultimately, I just want to have fun with it and not worry too much.

Sorry for the gear post, I just thought I'd ask before spending another thousand on the same thing I already had.

Pic is my cat, don't have raw files since I didn't have backups.

I usually like cats, and photos of cats. Something about this image just triggers a primal urge to want it DEAD AND TURNED INTO ASH. I see it as pure evil or something that needs annihilation.
It doesn't even look like a cat. It looks like an evil demon impersonating what it thinks people think a cat is supposed to look like.
If this is a real cat, your photo really sucks.

Every ISO is 4x noisier on 4/3, so its really important that you take interesting photos so people have things to notice other than the noise and how you missed focus on a comatose housecat. Its kind of close to an iphones quality, just with more creative and practical options, and someone here proved that if he took a 5mp crop from a 24mp full frame photo and used AI to blew it up it actually looked higher quality than most micro four thirds photos.

On the plus side, micro four thirds can be very cheap, $500 bodies and $100 lenses, if you aren't stupid about your shopping habits or a turbo gearfag over a point and shit tier camera that performs a lot like a canon powershot g7x.

Or, just don't blow your money on garbage so you can have fun snapshitting away and enjoy every photo looking great. Z6ii, ZF, X-T4, X-T5, a7C, all good recommendations. I'd get the x-t5 myself and just resize everything to 26mp. It looks a little more detailed and less noisy than 26mp native. Fuji is fun and easy to use.
>>
>>4283251
Yes, I am an expert.
Let me explain it to you.
Every sensor has the same sensitivity (roughly). The big camera jews are lying to you. In the high end space, there's this thing called t-stops. Light transmittance through all elements of the glass. For consumer/cuckPROsumer systems you only get f stops which are aperture that omits the actual light value that passes through.

ISO itself is a fraudulent scam.
ISO 100 on a smartphone is like ISO 12800 on a full frame, but it's "ISO 100" because that's what the phone tells you.
All if it is sensor voltage gain to meet a target final export average luminance level, metered RAW before white baance/color filtering are even considered.

Area is king. Big sensors capture more light, and require less amplification for any given shutter speed/aperture. There are no such things as equivalency. The only way for humans to try comparing the hardware is in proper RAW software that isn't kiking you by appliyng "RAW denoise" (adobe) type features,if yuo can't see the noise and photosites prior to interpolation/demosaicing/sharpening, you're not actually doing a proper RAW workflow.
ISO values are made for JPEG shooters.
The truth is sensor noise is mostly constant, and you can just "change ISO" in post, for the most part, whenever you shoot RAW. The 14-bit digitization of the sensor data that's only good for less than that allows the wiggle room, and higher ISOs can just boost a weaker signal into a better "digitization" within that limited bit depth despite the actual data not being any different from the capture.

The shit MFT/APS-C has to do in terms of amplifying the signal beyond what FF has to amplify it by just to mimic a fraction of its power is laughable.

Dear filter manufacturers,

Why.

Why are you endeavouring to make your filters as THIN and as SLIPPERY as possible?
People dont WANT this. It makes it difficult to get filters on, and even harder to get them off - often resulting in people having to use filter WRENCHES just to get them off.

I personally own several £80-£90 filters which virtually weld themselves to my lens, and you are NOT HELPING by making the filter MILLIMETRES thick and entirely slick.

Put paddles on the edge of the filters! Or at least make them thicker and ridiculously grippy so that, every time I try to get them off, mid winter, it doesn't take the skin off my fingers! I don't care if they look less slick - I want FUNCTIONALITY and SPEED.

n.b. You bastards!

Thinking about burning $50-70 on an obsolete ebay digital camera but I want to carry a big pretentious bastard that takes cheap auto focus glass so I can larp as an insurance adjuster from 2003 when I take photos of birds and shit.

I am considering the following among whatever other hipster shit I can find:
>Sony A100/A-whatever DSLR (or SLT if I find one cheap)
Fast Minolta af glass costs peanuts and it has ibis, seems like a nice deal all around.
>Finepix S2 Pro
Looks nice, Nikon film lenses are plentiful, is a brick of a machine, takes AAs and CF cards. Cumbersome but tickles my hipster sensibilities.
>Nikon D-whatever
Common and cheap as hell, literally just the above but more refined. Again, F-mount lenses are cheap.
>Olympus Evolt
Kodak sensor memes aside, the later gen ones are still barely worth peanuts. Crop sensors don't really concern me because I'm playing with older shit anyway.
>Canon EOS / Rebel
Very common but the lenses cost a lot even when used.

What are some other brick DSLRs I should keep an eye out for?
