what is wrong with dpreview.com and Pentax? Did they get raped by pentax's Ceo or something?
There are literally no tests of pentax cameras, few if none k-mount lenses listed or reviewed, check their lens sharpness tool and it's all canikon, there is only a DA 40 tested on an old ass K20d, I mean seriously?
You know the several thousand dollars in price that manifests as a few hundred bucks worth of extra bells and whistles in canikonsgear? Well that gets spent on constant fluffing of fanboy epenises, superfluous 'repair' services like "shutter actuation count report" packed in among the legitimate ones like "dropped it again and something busted", and the old classic "rubber grip texture isnt to my taste, returning it after 3 weeks use because murrica" and all charged at a premium under a vaguely excessive "after sales service"...

so a project where iam trying some stills with vhs quality and shit. but not the generic V H S memes you see everywhere but like pictelated. Any god able to identify exactly what I'll need to get a picture like this. VSCO would be cool since I don't think it needs a major make over. grains highlights etc????
Get some VHS compression textures off google, add and find a suitable blending mode and opacity in PS. Move around the individual colour channels slightly to get that CA-effect. Select a portion of the pic with the rectangle selection tool, copy to new layer and move up or down. Desaturate, curves.
Hey guys, I film home made porn with my GF. Does anyone have any tips to make it better?
I can't really afford a camera so I use my iPhone 6+ ( shortly to be an iPhone 7 + with the dual camera.. ) unless there is a good cam corder under $200-$300 max.
Anyways, how can I make it better film wise? Like what add ons can I do for the lens? What are the best lens? Are there any good tripods you would recommend? Any good selfie sticks? What about cheap lighting? Hell, even mics?
I'd like to keep this on a budget please. I don't need anything... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've been wonderin, can someone recommend books about photography that you deem essential to the medium? Maybe a prominent guide/how-to book that all beginners should look at or a famous photographers portfolio book.
Also, feel free to post your own if you've published any.
Call me a memer all you like, but I really enjoyed TerryWorld. Perhaps not unquestionably essential, but Terry's influence on fashion photography can't be denied. I've also got a scan if anyone wants it.
Magnum Contact Sheets is great because you get a sense of how good photographers actually take photos, rather than just what their final output is like. They put out a compact edition in 2014 that's way cheaper, and still absolut massive.
>>2912702 >24mm This is good for architecture but not for babies, you'll get facial distortion like a motherfucker. >85mm On your 1.6 crop sensor, this is the full frame equivalent of 136mm. I have a full frame 5D Mark III and my go to portrait lens is a 135mm. It's a great focal length and just what I would recommend to anyone looking for baby or portrait lens for crop sensor. Congrats on the babies
Its still has that mildly confusing interface and 90s blog style. I Would have expected its pages to look like something from Squarespace by now - but nope, still the same old nineties-style scrolling over a wallpaper...
tony northrup So I'm thinking about buying a d500 and a 50-100 sigma art lens. Does anyone have any dirt to discredit tony northrup? Was he a gay? Did he shoot porn? Does he not make any money and is a trust fund kiddy? Also is he a cuck or is that his kid? I actually like him alot, I'm just not sure what his background/history is.
>>2912432 He shows you literally everything he is basing his opinions on, with sources for factual materials and examples for subjective so you can decide if you agree or disagree with his tastes. He's too in love with optimizing sharpness for my tastes, but he doesn't lead people wrong.
Hi everyone, I'm fairly new to photography, especially analog photography. i was wondering if anybody would be able to help me, on a few of my pictures i am getting these real dark spots in the corners of them and i dont know what is causing it, does anyone know how to stop this or what is causing it?
I added a girl to model for me because I wanted to get to know her better and I knew she'd had modelling experience before. But I know nothing about photography.
I have about a week to learn everything I can and at least be a little aware of how to use a camera. I don't need to be taking awesome pictures (I told her I was just getting into it) I just need to be able to not look like an idiot. Thanks.
>>2912077 >grow a vagina >show with a shallow depth of field >get shit in your frame to distract from the fact that the subject is shit >over expose >add yellow to the blown out highlights >post on tumblr
Wrestler here. Unless the gig requires you to have pictures that are crazy beautiful don't worry about it. When I went to my state championships we just gave our stat girls (fancy name for girls we shagged after the match) shitty digital cameras and the pictures turned out fine. Don't over think it.
I currently use the 24, 35 and 50 1.4 Art lenses and I particularly love the 24, but to be quite honest - they have no character. They are boring because of their technical perfection, which isn't quite perfect. The 50mm has horrible bokeh, I use my Canon nifty fifty in favour of it.
They aren't, or at least you're confusing the zoom mechanism with quality. The reality is, f/4 lenses are always going to be amazing. Slow lenses are always going to be the best in their class because fast lenses are always a compromise between refraction and correction. Slow lenses don't suffer from that duality, and are able to concentrate on a single variable (sharpness and optical quality).
It's like that old chinese proverb: "chase two rabbits, catch neither."
There's a pro wrestling event next month that I want to shoot, but I've never shot wrestling (or any legit fighting) before. Any tips? I'll be able to shoot ringside, and the only lighting in the place will be on the ring. I have a 5D Mark III.
I've never posted on this board before. What I can say about this picture is that I was in a kind of a little lake, then I saw these flowerish things so I just lifted my hand holding my camera and shot. The second shot turned out to be rather interesting in my opinion. I'm not into Lightroom so I didn't edit this except for resizing on Photoshop. Also, what quality do you use when saving a picture on Photoshop? 10? 12?
>>2911400 >mfw the most successful photographers in the world usually study a science
honestly the best way to learn is through experience and id rather spend the money on traveling somewhere to shoot rather than photography school, better to major in something that actually requires 4 years of school to be good at
Please help comprehend this shooting direction board i received as a sort of preperation for a photoshoot taking place this upcoming weekend. I've done similar works for this client but this time he is bringing in better models and I really want to make a good job. Today I will be rigging light, perhaps post some of it later if interest exist, see if you think its an alright setup.. ?

So ive heard two things from many sources. Some say to look at famous photographers work to find your taste (some even say imitate them). Others say to not look at others work and just do what you think is interesting or good until you develop your own taste then you can appreciate others. Is there a general consensus on /o/ about this? whats your opinion
