What music do you listen to when you shoot? I feel like I take some of my favorite shots when I’m listening to Talking Heads.

Since the Lab-Box is essentially a copy of the Agfa Rondinax, when are we going to see some 3d plans to print our own?

I tired to develop my first roll of film at home and failed. I had a Paterson tank with reel and just couldn't get it loaded onto the reel, no matter how hard I tried.

I had bought all the supplies but didn't practice loading the reel before trying to load it in the bag. I crinkled the film, rolled it on backwards somehow, also It slipped off the few times I managed to almost get it started.

Just felt like sharing my fail with you guys today.

I've never got any of those to work. Could be the old film retrievers we have at the lab are bent up or something, though.

>>3546109
The trick is to cut the leader between the sprocket holes so it doesn't catch on the reels, also found in a dark bag my hands get sweaty and make spooling the film even harder so I started wearing latex gloves. Should help some.

Your mistake was not shooting 120. You can do that shit blindfolded.

I got 120 film to develop too, just trying to develop 35mm successfully first.

>>3548529
I learned it in a class when I was 12 and I could probably do it in a drunken stupor. It really helps to practice in the light first just to make sure your reel works.

Just bought a canon ae-1 and i tried to clean it. I used wet wipes made for glasses and tisues and qtips and some rubbing alcohol. I tried to clean the mirror and the matte glass but i left some smudges on the matte glass. I know it wont affect my pictures but i dont like how they look in the viewfinder. Any way to get rid of them?

Cropping to suit the final format has always been a thing and will always. What planet do you live on where it needs to come out of the camera perfectly and ready for Instagram? Paper comes in the most varied dimensions, and even so some applications are specific and call for very odd formatting, web standards are not an issue at all.

File: SIgma 150-600 C.jpg (24 KB, 1000x600)

I've been having trouble with focusing with my Sigma 150-600 C lens. Do I need to possibly calibrate it? The issues come at the full focal length, where subjects are not in sharp focus. I am wondering whether it's maybe my D750, or my lens that is the issue. Since it's wildlife photography, will there always be an issue because of the camera's resolution? The subjects are at a medium distance. I'm not expecting a zoom and enhance, though.

How would I methodically rule out possibilities?

Also IBIS is shit for long lens work, disregard that moron, get a good, heavy and expensive tripod, gimbal head and shoot in the early mornings for best results.
>>
>>3547894

I have read that about IBIS. In my experience, tripods hinder more than help unless you're specifically setting up with a blind. And even then you can't quickly shoot 360 degrees with a tripod without making a commotion... never know where your next shot will come from.

OP, stop down and raise your ISO and shutter speed. You need more DOF, and less exposure time. Noise be damned, it's far better than missed focus and / or motion blur.

OP needs to divulge more info on what and how is shooting, BIF? Zoo? Large animals? Small animals?
From a hide/blind, monopole/ tripod/beanbag?

You ideally should be using:

A battery grip for additional Amps and control.

Rear button focus

A STRONG Tripod or monopole with gimbal head.

Burst mode / highest speed RAW

Updated firmware for camera and lens.

>>3547957
I'll give some of those a go. I normally do it from a hide, and much of the rest. I haven't been doing tripod because I do it from the hide, most of the time. I think most of the issues are coming from my mistakes, because whilst I can get good images, I fuck it up. The main thing I need to get down is exposing for the target against the sky, and panning with support. I do the rest already. Thanks for the advice.

We do have thrift stores but they don't usually carry good stuff. I usually get photo books from flea markets or when the big library has their "donation based" flea market (got a couple of nice books inlcuding "In the American West" for free that way).

There's also a bi-annual photo book festival going on in the city with loads of used books for sale

maybe the right term should be "gradient": I want all the color shadows in the photo to be depicted in the same position as in the photo, just like the one in OP. poin tbeing, blurring does not just mush the color softly, but it also spread the frame etc.

Try surface blur in Photoshop, it's slow as fuck but might be what you want.

why this pose? you have made yourself out to look like a geisha or something. the message I can see in this photo is
>I'm in love with my own ass
I think a nude would make more sense if it were justified in the context of the picture, like a more clinical pose (not a pinup, just like sitting cross-legged or something) in your own bedroom. But it's dangerous territory. Generally the subject of a nude should be somebody you want to see naked. So the audience for this would probably be gay guys. Would you sell or publish this photo knowing some older dude would probably use it to jerk off?

That’s why no one will remember your name. Real artists hang dong in their work, which takes confidence and bravery, which you clearly lack.

I hope this belongs here, is there any way to make things hidden in pitch black visible like on the pic above if yes how? Thanks
