I draw, currently only using ink or charcoal. Was wondering if there was a decent camera I could use that is meant only for black and white photos. Really want to take my own pictures then hand draw them for practice.

Any recommendations?

An old friend who is no longer into photography said he will give me a minolta srt101 to try out and see if I like it. I looked at the leica monochrom but I am a construction worker and dont have that kind of cash for anything just yet. Thank you all for the advice I hope to post updates once I get it

Easy mode is to shoot BW in any camera or your smartphone (better with RAW support and downlaod camera app with RAW support). Just change to BW setting, increase contrast. Post processing with a phone app (snapseed or lightroom mobile) or desktop is also a major key to get the desired output, tweak the ff: framing, exposure, highlights, shadows and contrast, clarity or structure to see more details, or even changing color to change tonal values in BW (if shooting RAW or colored JPG then converting to BW later).

But remember that lighting is the key (use an off camera flash, lamp, flashlight, bright window to light the subject), or as long as the highlights and shadows are much more visible. This will give the subject a 3D look and not looking flat (with you not guessing where the highlights and shadows should be when sketching).

t. I also draw (charcoal, ink, pencil) and paint (acrylic) but seldom these days

If you're using digital shoot in colour and process into b&w. You have more control over the image that way, rather than letting the camera process it for you.

Processing it into b&w in post allows you to play with tones and contrast which can really make an image pop. A camera will just process it to look average and flat, rather than high key/low key.

The SRT is a great camera, being all mechanical with uncoupled metering will help you memorizing exposure values. Just keep in mind that the meter was meant to use 1.35V mercury batteries which are no longer being made, but you can find similar zinc-air hearing aid batteries that can fill in for the job. The downside is that they expire on their own in a couple of months regardless of usage. But the camera itself will work without any batteries, they only power the light meter.
http://www.fredparker.com/ultexp1.htm
I strongly suggest you read through this and practice using its exposure value chart. You'll quickly learn the correct exposure settings for the usual situations and can confidently shoot without any light meter at all. It will also come in handy later if you end up using an auto-exposure camera because you'll know when the meter is being thrown off by something, and can adjust for special situations where the automation can't be relied on.

One day all this will be gone.....

This thread is dedicated for pictures that were taken during blue hour, or at night. Feel free to share your photos and don't forget to criticise others.
----------------------------------------

Maybe share your stories or things you have experienced while lingering in the darkness, away from city lights, or directly below. I find peace and happiness in solitude and away from too many people. Of course I enjoy companionship, but walking alone, or with a friend at latenight is much more enjoyable than during the day.

I'm ready to get ripped apart for my white borders, but it's so much faster, than editing every single picture in my phone editor and resizing it to make it fit for /p/ posting.

The answer to all gearfags.

I'm struggling to learnt to edit photos well. I have been mainly concentrating on black and white photography for the last 4 years but want to branch out to colour. I have been avoiding it due to the fact that I find it less pleasing aesthetically and I'm not sure my brain really clicks with colour. How would you edit this shot to make it looks its best and what are some good resources to learn?

sup /p/?

A lot of my shows lately have not been photo based so photo production has been low. That said I have a large photo show coming up of the artificial landscapes so I have some new ones for it. These are all 8x10 direct paper positives. I've been having some consistency issues with selenium toning so if anyone knows a lot about that process I'd love to know why. My suspicion is that the issue is insufficient rinsing but the harman paper doesn't tolerate long rinses well.

Hey, guys,

I'm looking for material as an inspiration for a photographer/editor who will be designing cover for my short novel. I guess /p/ might give me some material I may show to the guy for him to work along a certain concept by picking a stock photo or shooting it himself.

Concept I'm looking for is "angry young man". No shutterstock with opened mouths, exposed teeth and such bs. Just look. Stare. Sort of 1000 mile stare of utter rage.

Can you guys perhaps share any material, you might deem appropriate in this way? The "I will bash your brains in with an ashtray" look, but no cheap effects?

Pic is related, but backstory is silly. This guy was a rock musician, a pacifist, but I think his stare is close to what I'm looking for.

thanks

like i said you gotta ask what the best price is and then theyll go low immediately.

Image quality doesn't depend on megapixels, but on light collection properties of the sensor. In fact a too large amount of pixels could force individual pixel size to diminish so much that the image quality would suffer via additional noise. Same goes for small sensors but they fail additionally by having smaller area to collect light.
>>
>>3521456
> but would others be able to easily tell?
Probably yes.

That said it depends a lot on the lens and situation, under optimal conditions (very high end lens / no noise because you did ISO100 / nearly no cropping because you framed virtually perfectly) I figure the image is good for almost any typical use. Maybe your 16MP FF DSLR even has large pixels, that might help with diffraction at narrower apertures.

That said this isn't all that easy outside of a studio. Usually there are a lot of reasons to get better camera bodies.
>>
>>3521598
>>
>>3521675
That and the quality of the lens matters too.
After a certain point you're not getting any more image detail, just more of the distortion from the lens.
