>Modern professional cameras produce images straight from the camera of such high quality that the need for adjustments in image-editing software is much less than in the past. Photographers and editors should strive to use as little post-processing as possible while adhering to our standards of image quality.

I am leaving for a trip tomorrow and will bring my trusty A7. But I can't decide if I want to bring my Loxia 2/50 or borrow a Nokton 50/1.1. I really can't decide. I like the close focus of the Lox, but the Noct is so nice and bright... I am sorry if this shouldn't be outside the gear thread, I need opinions desperately.
>>2731312 It sounds like you have used the loxia a lot. unfamilliar gear can help you push yourself in other directions. also, what trip is this. if you are in a warm country, take the loxia. if its a cold country with lots of dark bars and people and indoor locations youll obvi be better off with a brighter lens.
>>2731317 >unfamilliar gear can help you push yourself in other directions. It's still a 50mm lens... it just gives more BOKEH. This is not a direction you should be trying to go in.... A tripod would be more beneficial.
I recently have found a person on 500px called Ichiro Murata. I thought I'd let you guys know about this person since his work is... Unique. I can't really describe it in any other way. He has a way of photographing buildings that just intrigues me. This is his profile: https://500px.com/ichiromurata
I am also wondering if you guys know any people with a similar style. I'm interested in how to do this as well. I tried, but failed miserably.
Why do we not have recurring technique discussion threads when we have gear threads and recent photo threads?
To start out, I am happy today because I managed to take a photo @ 1/15 shutter speed and 200mm focal length hand-held that wasn't just blurred out. Trying to improve the steadiness of my hand. The lens did have VR, but Nikon's only accounts for 3 stops... so it's way below the recommended minimum for that focal length. I found out that each lens has to be held differently to be stable enough for the VR to make any difference in a situation like that. This opens a door to a whole new realm of practicing my hand.
Now it's your turn. Let's discuss techniques, both for shooting and post-processing.
>>2731238 That is true. What I am practicing now is my ability to take sharp still images below that limit hand-held, mostly without any movement in them. As you said, "unless you're pretty steady"... well, I want to become pretty steady.
I think it's a good kind of self-torture that also benefits me in times when I do have enough light to stay above them. Nothing worse than a shaky photographer.
Ok, due to popular demand I'm creating a thread for photos I've taken on deployment (one year ago and haven't shared yet) as well as some other stuff so you guys can see and critique me on my "normal" stuff too. I'll start with military photos and when I run out of stuff worth posting I'll switch to others. Not gonna follow the 1000x1000 rule because Im an absolute madman.
Just to get some FAQs out of the way: I was an Osprey crewchief in the Marines from 2010-2015 (only flew from 2012 on but anyway)
I did photography and highschool and didnt buy another camera til the X-T1 a few months after it came out because I needed to fill a void my ex-gf provided.
So I started bringing my X-T1 on flights, and just went crazy. Whenever I got to take pictures like that, we were flying in formation and my ass was sitting on the open ramp of my Osprey as I took pictures of our dash 2 while sitting or laying in the prone.
It was a unique opportunity that pretty much no one gets to do. My job in the military was pretty sick compared to 98% of MOSs and when I started bringing my camera it got even more rewarding.
All these photos were taken on deployment this time last year. We were in Kuwait but flew into Iraq to do anti-ISIS stuffs every day or two.
While I was over there I got to go to Saudi Arabia once, Jordan twice, Iraq several times, and Bahrain once.
Alright so I hope you enjoy the thread, I consider myself an intermediate photographer and idk I don't think I'm all too good but I have some neat stuff that you guys would never get to see otherwise. Some of you may also know me as the fag who bought a fucked up 500cm. I also posted some Osprey pics about a year and a half ago that are NOT most of these. Gonna post until I run out of wine then pick it up again tomorrow.
Alright, im a 4 year vet who shoots with a 60d, some decent to good glass, i shoot people for newpapers and realty....
I have to over compensate on my 430ex flash with a gary fong diffuser to make up for the poor iso performance....
I need more iso so i can go lighter on the flash...
The 7d mark 2 and the 6d are the same price, Is a full frame sensor able to capture available natural light better then an apc?
I only have one l series lens and a lot of lenses that the 6d cant use so im leaning to the 7d mark 2 right now.... however, if full frame sensors are better and capture more accurately, should i go with a 6d then?
Sounds like you need to get yourself some fast prime glass, or learn to use your flash off camera. ISO performance should be a last resort fix, when comparing to benefits of more/different light setups, or wider apertures.
If you want to buy a new body for low light, then get the 6D. I can shoot mine at 25600 and it looks like a crop camera's 3200. 6400 on the 6D is as usable as 800 on most crop cameras.
