Things closer to the camera will appear proportionally larger than things further away. This is accentuated when using shorter focal lengths below ~85-135mm, which is why that range is typically used when making portraits.
Assuming your subject is standing straight, shooting at their head level will be flatting for most people. Shooting up will result in large feet and legs, small torso and head, this is not usually flattering for women, can be flattering for men. Shooting down will result in a large head, broad shoulders, slimmer waist and slim/small legs, this is usually... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I'm going to invest in my first serious camera. The question I wanted to ask is if B&H in NYC is still the number one place to get optics these days? I haven't been to their store or bought anything from them. The last time I was there was in 98' with dad when I was like 10, buying something to which I forgot. The only thing I remeber is that it's not the place to go to if you don't know EXACTLY what you want.
Looking to buy my first camera for amature photography but more so for video making. I hear the Panasonic G7 is better than the a6000 for video, but besides the appeal of the a6000 being the compact size and design, am I an idiot for wanting the sony because of the brand?
Panasonic just has a bad connotation in my head. It just sounds old and cheap to me. It's the brand of CRT your grandma had. Sony, their website, their branding, their cameras and lenses, it all just looks good. I feel like no matter what, I'll be slightly dissatisfied with the Panasonic just... Comment too long.

I won a blackmagic cinema camera, i don't have a lens for it my dad has this old Minolta 50mm lens, i was looking online at what adaptor i need to mount it to the camera, i honestly know pretty much nothing so if someone could point me in the right direction that would be great this is the adaptor that i think will work https://www.amazon.co.uk/Adapter-Olympus-Micro-Camera-DC116/dp/B008H2HZ7O/ref=pd_vtph_421_bs_t_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=XX111J4P12JX1HEGG1SC
A BOLD, BEAUTIFUL & BRIMMING-WITH-BOKEH RESURRECTION FROM THE ZENITH OF RUSSIAN OPTICAL DESIGN
A Resurrection of Planetary Proportions from the glory days of rangefinder photography Unsurpassed Character with super-fast performance and incredible low light ability Handcrafted Construction of solid chrome-plated brass and Russian glass optics Rich Russian Heritage based on the iconic Jupiter lens
With years of knowledge and experience, the skilled and dedicated team of technicians at the Zenit Factory in Russia has produced the lens to the highest quality. In addition to having a modified 0.7m closest focusing distance (an improvement from 1m on the original lens), the New Jupiter 3+ Art Lens is directly compatible with L39 and M mount rangefinder and mirrorless digital cameras, as well as many more using adapter mounts. Constructed from chrome-plated solid brass, the New Jupiter 3+ Art Lens is much more durable than the original Jupiter... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
A combined effort by our experienced team and manufactured at the exact same Zenit factory in Russia as the original, the New Jupiter 3+ Art Lens retains the strong character and Soviet spirit of the original lens — crisp sharpness, smooth, natural colors and lush, dreamy bokeh — while transcending its forbearer in many ways.
In the same excellently compact design and classic demeanor, we recalculated the technical specifications of the original Jupiter 3 to make this extremely special lens far more accessible for today’s photographers. It’s compatible with L39... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Okay, so I recently bought a black and white cartridge from The Impossible Project for my dad's polaroid 1000. I really want to use this gold plated cartridge for some portraits of a friend of mine, but im scared of fucking up my exposure and getting a bunch of shitty overexposed photographs. Does anyone have any info or tips on lighting and how best to shoot with it? Also polaroid general thread.
>>2878476 in flashless units shoot outside in daylight. the camera deals well with those conditions, but fails in low light. remember you have a fixed focus hyperfocal lens - the background of your subject will always be in focus, so choose ones that dont compete for the viewer's attention with your subject. foilage is a staple, ditto skyline (possibility of underexposing subject then, though). google a pdf version of the instruction manual and read it - among other things it lists the minimal focusing distance, important...

Have you started/do you run a successful aerial footage capturing service?
I've been mulling this around now as I want to branch out of my corporate job shooting and filming events and commercials, and focus more on high end photography and video.
I have a plan for marketing myself, I'd have a dedicated website for aerial photography separate from my other work, networking for new clients and prospects, etc. But what I don't know is how much of a demand it is in my area. I know many people want it, but these are the same people who have asked me... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I moved files from my D70 by it to my computer through a micro USB and copying the files over. This resulted in the memory card getting unformatted somehow and these files that I can't open. The only idea I can think of is formatting the card and using recovery software to try to get the pictures back from the card. How good/bad is this idea?
Hey /p/, I have a Nikon D3200. I'd like to buy a fast prime lens. My thoughts are wondering around these two lenses. Those are the recent prices for new ones. Please help compare the two from every possible aspect. I'm also thinking about to sell the D3200 in the future, but I don't know what to choose instead (ASP-C, full frame). Thanks.
(I know I should put it into "gear thread" but that is just full of everything, a jumble. So yeah, please be kind.)
I don't see why you couldn't just post your special snowflake poorly researched simple question which has already been answered a million times in the containment thread, but to answer your question the AF-D version is not even fully compatible with your camera and a 50mm lens in general is probably just not the most suitable option for a crop sensor camera anyway.
But you could've found that out easily by yourself: http://kenrockwell.com/nikon/d3200.htm You can read right there what lenses are compatible with your cameras and what lenses Uncle Kenny recommends and see detailed charts and reviews and whole lists of lenses that are recommended to fit both your camera and whatever needs you may have.
>>2879201 use your kit lens like a fixed lens for awhile in both focal lengths. personally I feel like 50mm on a crop sensor is too long much of the time and the 35mm would get more use. the optics of the 35mm are still a little worse than those of the 50mm afaik but that's not really what you should be worried about if you're looking at these lenses
It's because the creativity is bred out of them in the school systems and they're discouraged from self-expression, differing viewpoints, even the most superficial thinking. Better to go through life in a fugue, your superiors will tell you what to do and what to think and society doesn't want loose cannons capable of independent thought.
How do i convert raw to jpeg using native windows tools? i know i can save as jpeg from the photos app but only if i change something. photoshop isnt an option, my raw extension is out of date and cant update cause pirated
>>2876836 just pirate a new version of photoshop dude or pirate capture-nx those are the only two tools that give you correct color calibration for raw to jpeg, everything else you will have to fiddle with endlessly
>>2876159 I'm going with a bunch of friends, so it's not gonna be an antisocial /p/ autist kind of thing.
I've actually wanted to do this exact thing for years, but I'm always at Anime Expo on the 4th and skipping out on con parties and socializing to go take some photos isn't worth it. The con ended today this year, so for once I'm free.
I have aps-c equivalents of 50mm and 28mm now. I shoot with the 28mm 90% of the time and I'm selling the 50mm, it's too tele for me most of the time. I think 35mm and 24mm or 21mm will be my future duo, then maybe later I'll add a 50mm again for portrait stuff.
This is an interesting if often recurring (on /p/) topic, but you forgot to add the magic words "or 35mm equivalents" and have thus doomed the thread to arguments about crop factor, different image formats/sizes etc. I'll go with 20 and 50 for most situations.

>>2865358 I liked his older content, but in general it's good. It's just he shoves advertisements down your throat, but that can easily skipped past. He takes good looking photos.
The main thing I like the most about him is his 5-minute portrait segments that showed behind the scenes of a photoshoot without being boring like that other YouTuber TheNikonGuy I believe his name is. It helped me with my portrait work.
He is trying to make money in his field. I would gladly take him shilling his products at me in a FREE VIDEO that he didn't have to make if it means I glean one little tidbit of knowledge from him for free. If you can handle his weirdness, which he call his branding, and maybe you're newer than by all means watch away.
I am hugely thankful for all the youtubers making content. Skip the shit that's trash. Watch lots and lots of shit. After a while you can learn to differentiate what is and is not trash.

So I got harassed on the street for shooting photos for the first time yesterday. I wasn't actually shooting street. More the kind of architecture stuff that you might find in Ming Thein's older stuff.
Guy called after me clearly drunk with a tallboy asking if I wanted it. Said no out of reaction. Then he threw it at me and said something like go take pretty pictures faggot or something. I walked away more insults followed etc. I'm sure worse has happened in LA and I sort of feel like a faggot for walking away and not taking a more chuck jines approach... Comment too long.

>carry a knife or sth for protection >learn to talk yrself out of shit >dont carry too much of value with you if you're scared of getting mugged (maybe some cheapo film cam) >ignore shit talkers, unless theyre getting real close-up
also on another note it seems like you just got screamed at by some drunk hobo and now act like you got raped or some shit. ignore it and stop acting like a bitch about it
>>2878495 >without filters I'm not sure what types of filters you're talking about. If you're talking about physical filters on the front of the lens, then they have nothing to do with this. If you want to copy this cheesy as hell cheap 80's film look, then there are countless digital post production filters out there to help you achieve that goal.
>polaroid I think you just want a cheap, fake vintage film look. Get some VSCO filters and go to town.
