Hello /p/atriots. Average rookie guy here.

Short backstory:
>discovered I can make dosh as an erotica photographer
>currently making not that much money
>used a crappy note 8 to shoot
>decided I need slightly more serious gear
>found amazing deal for a D3300 and also found out it's basically the best D3K series

The D3300 has 2000 shots made, it comes with the stock 18-55 lens (the newer ver), 2 batteries, 32GB card, charger, strap and bag. The price for it? About 25% lower than the cheapest one which is beat up with 50,000 shots and has no lens. AKA, extremely cheap. No hidden "baddies". It's coming from a photographer who wasn't really that happy with it and moved to a 1DX.

How good is this for your average beginner who's going to mostly shoot nude ladies for the start?

Well, for starters, you can actually go ahead and start publicly stating that you're into budoir photography.

There are countless ways in which you can publicly state you got a DSLR, a working brain and hand and are willing to shoot models. There's a website if I'm correct called model mayhem where you as a photographer can state you want to start shooting models. You'll most likely get eventually called out for a potential shoot. (it's mostly free work for a newbie, so do not expect to make a dollar in the first 1-2 months of doing this)

I did this with a phone for a while. A note 8 from Samsung. I simply wasn't shy of saying it publicly that I'd like to take photos of ladies naked. I did receive comments such as being called a dumb virgin who wanted some pussy. It's understandable. But today I have friends with D810s, D4s, 5D Mark IIIs not making a single spit of money from this and barely managing to attend weddings or other events. I'm making a guaranteed 1K a month with as many as 3K a month with 5 different girls at this point. I had sex with every one of them (not right away, don't think they are just willing to suck your dick or fuck you because you got some big glass pointed at their freshly shaved vagina).

You have to be professional (professionalism doesn't mean just owning a body worth thousands and glass worth tens of thousands, that means you're well equipped) and you have to act professional. Never act like you're entitled to any sort of body pleasures afterwards, never ask them for this, never try to blackmail because that can backfire so hilariously bad, you're looking at potential jail time.

I recommend that you go into this with an open mind, have a place where you can shoot naked ladies (bring proper ideas and in case you can't afford a semi-studio, work as well as possible with what you have) and NEVER expect anything else than pictures of ladies in the nude which you can only keep to yourself unless they make them public anywhere.
>>
>>3478572
I can assure you the girl in the picture doesn't even look remotely scared. The light was bad and the (at the time) phone was kind of tricky to hold and shoot.

I'm not forcing them to come here, get naked, get in a scenario and allow me to shoot them. They do it willingly and they can back out fully at any given time.
>>
>>3472332
>>3472637
I am sorry but who in their right mind would want to buy photos like that? I am not saying that the girl is ugly or anything like that, but the internet is filled with amateur and professional models and hundreds of thousands if not millions of (free) photos of every kind.

Well, here's the ordeal, or the part where we managed to make it work.

Obviously that is an exaggerated rookie shot. I'm not going to tell anybody here, especially on this board that I was taking good pictures with a Note 8. I was taking ok pictures for a phone, yes, but not great pictures.

It all started on a begging stage, honestly. Random conversations with losers just waiting for the proper moment to throw dick pics or videos of them cumming over her photos.

We did start seeing daddies interested. Actual "daddies", not only idiots with money. People who wanted custom content rolling, and only for their eyes. And guess what. These girls don't know a spit of english, but I do. And I do most of their talking seeing as I have the IQ necessary to do this shit and actually pull money out of it.

As >>3480951 stated, the target audience is boomers. They don't expect proper quality shots, they don't expect expensive studio grade photography. They expect intimacy, "little" behavior and submission with a touch of hidden dominatrix inbetween the lines.

And guess what? They start with some small sum like 10-20 bucks for a set like this which usually contains up to 30 pics. And then they start offering more for more intimate shots. A random nude pic... a random fingering video, a random video of them doing work throughout the house. A video of them being rammed maybe? Yeah and the cost constantly goes up and up. From 20 bucks a set of crappy photos to 300 bucks for a picture in low light of feet. The right sucker will pay the price without flinching 100% of the time.

There are other who make tons of money. LilCanadianGirl for example a manyvids girl does a bit better quality wise and through camming she gets upwards of 10,000 bucks a day and still gets fat tips per day when not streaming.

whats the best ways for working with models and taking erotic photos?
>>
Creating a portfolio and being a professional instead of a creepy with a camera;

work for free taking pictures of instagrammers;

dress properly to the situation, i.e. like a instagrammer;

forget everything you know about editing, just apply Lr presets from famous instagrammers.
>>
>>3482815
Solid advice. Also look up common ero photo albums online or at your local library. It'll give you ideas for poses. Don't stress about gear either like a massive elaborate lighy setup etc. Take your time and grow.
And for heavens sake, remember you are NOT Terry Richardson so don't even think about boning any of your models lest you want a bad rep with them and or potential lawsuit

I have no experience with the T2 but I do have experience with the TVSii (zoom version of the T2).
On Gumtree I found a Fuji Tiara Zoom plus 3 other shitty P&Ss (not pic related) for like $80 so I bought them. Used the Fuji and loved the thing, small light, nice zoom range and sharp as FUCK lens. It eventually bricked on me and I was pretty pissed. In my search for a replacement I bought a TVSii instead of another Fuji bc I wanted to see what the Contax hype is all about.
The TVSii is a very impressive camera, solid as fuck, same zoom range but the lens is faster, aperture priory, exposure comp, manual focus, sharp lens, feels good in the hand. It does everything my Ricoh XR7 does and it has AF and flash. You'd think that's be good right? But you may as well use the SLR over a P&S if it gives you that much control. I think a P&S should be a camera you can use without thinking too much. I'd constantly be changing setting and fucking with the camera (maybe this a problem with using a zoom lens idk) before taking a shot. If I use my Olympus XA3 or Mju II all I think about is the composition of my shot.Sure you could use a P&S with as much control as the TVSii as your only camera but I think using the right tool for the job is always a better approach. The TVSii is also huge compared to the XA3/Mju II and just as heavy (and almost the size) as my Ricoh XR7 with the Rikenon 45mm pancake.
All and all I think something like the XA3/Mju II is the ideal point and shoot, compact, great lens (XA3 has a better lens the corner sharpness of the Mju is pitiful) and just all round ease to use. If I want more control I'd use my XR7.

Also my TVSii died on me after 3 rolls, the ribbon cable in the lens snapped. This is a common issue with the TVS line but am unaware if this is an issue with the T line. Luckily someone on eBay sells the replacement ribbon cable so all I need to do is find someone who can repair it for me.

The T cameras do not have a ribbon cable. The ribbon cable is needed in the TVS because of the Zoom.

>I never accidentally exposed a single frame.
I did this multiple times when half pressing my TVSii to focus/exposure lock. The shutter button is absolute shit there's no physical half click, the shutter button is mushy until it's fully descended. I never have this problem on my Mju II or the plethora of other cheap point and shoots I've own because they all have a physical half clicks!

>Thumb focusing works reasonbaly
Yeah I agree, it's just okay I never used it over AF.

> the fact that they fit an aperture ring at all onto this camera is a literal god send. I don't care if it is slightly fiddly.
Yeah the aperture ring is a nice feature but usability is king. I wouldn't say I have big hands but I found the ring annoying to use and the ring on the TVSii is bigger than the T2s! It's just awkward bc it's right next to the body of the camera.

>>3482846
>The T cameras do not have a ribbon cable. The ribbon cable is needed in the TVS because of the Zoom.
That's good info to know. At least the common issue with the TVS can be fixed. If a T2 breaks its fucked for good.

>they all have a physical half clicks!
Not the Yashica T4. I think it is a Kyocera thing since I am used to their designs on Contax SLRs which also generally don't have physical half stops.

Actually now that I think about it. I use Sony for my digital work and I don't think those have physical half stops either.

>Yeah I agree, it's just okay I never used it over AF.
I have used it with the camera aperture priority at f/8 to do zone focus for street photography (Something I simply have not been able to do with any other P&S)

>the ring on the TVSii is bigger than the T2s! It's just awkward bc it's right next to the body of the camera.
Yeah, I have used a TVS i and liked the T2's aperture ring more as it is on the lens body. Wasn't there a tab or something to grip onto though on the TVS?

>At least the common issue with the TVS can be fixed. If a T2 breaks its fucked for good.
Haha, I think you are wrong here. If I remember correctly the ribbon cable in the TVS is a soldered cable meaning that it needs to be desoldered to be replaced and that the actual repair process itself is really time consuming and that the cost of such a repair by a skilled technician would likely be higher just buying a replacement camera.

Olympus XA series my dude. The original XA is an aperture priority rangefinder that has a DOF scale, the XA2, XA3, XA4 are all zone focus cameras. These cameras are ideal for street, the shutter is quiet and people won't here the advance motor because it's manual advance!

>would likely be higher just buying a replacement camera.
I really doubt it would cost over $600 to replace a ribbon cable especially when there are repair manuals for the TVS available. Even so I'd rather repair a camera I already have than throw it away like everyone else does. It gives these technicians work while also keeping the ever declining amount of film camera alive.

>Wasn't there a tab or something to grip onto though on the TVS?
Not on the ii there isn't. I think you might be referring to the original TVS and even so that's for turning it on/zooming

Use the cheapest and most obsolete camera you can. Everything still matters here like composition and subject matter, but image quality should be of zero concern.

Noise and digital compression artifacts are not only welcome, but encouraged. Pro tip, use a camera with a resolution low enough so you barely have to resize them before posting.

Any gear discussion should be focused toward finding the shittiest, most obsolete digital equipment.

no need, 2.2.1 just werks :^)

I’m trying to get into photography.

What books/articles/photographers would any of you recommend for me to research as a novice?

I inherited a Canon 50D with a few lenses with some filters and have been spending a month or so having fun trying to dive into this hobby (pic related).
I was curious if it’s even worth upgrading until I get substantially better.

I got to play around with a Fujifilm X-T3 for a few days but I was somewhat surprised that I didn’t notice much difference in picture quality. I’m sure if I had a better grasp that it would turn out to be a remarkably better tool.

it doesnt make a big difference so don't be scared about it, low light is the best way to understand shutter speed.
Turn off your rooms light and take pictures of your led keyboard at different speeds, it's a good way to get an understanding for it.

Why are these shitty compacts worth so much god damn money now, they aren't even really that good. Most of them would get BTFO with no recovery by a 50 dollar Nikon SLR and 50mm pancake.
>>
>>3482814
Well I think there are a couple of reasons.

1. People buying them want to try film and point and shoots are simple and easy ways to do it without lugging an old slr around and learning how to expose, focus and meter properly

2. This one has a zeiss branded lens which is a respected name that literally anyone even tertiarily informed about photography has heard.

3. These fixed lens P&Ss are slightly rarer than the millions of shitty travel zooms that boomers loved in the 90s and are littering goodwill shelves.

4. $400 doesn't seem like a lot for a camera to most people who are used to digital camera prices.

5. Some pros/film enthusiasts want to pay the terry tax.

You can't carry a compact SLR & 50mm in your pocket. The quality these compacts give for their size is great

>>3482828
I'm not convinced the T4 is actually a "quality compact". I think it was pretty cheap when it came out.

I remember an old post here where anon used an empty clean KFC bucket as a lens hood for his 70-200 LOL
>>
>>3481177
Lens hoods are usually specific to the individual lens—they’re designed to go with one specific lens so they can block the maximum amount of stray light without peeking in at the corners of your frame, and that’s specific to your focal length. You shouldn’t need any sort of adapter or extra piece to connect it.

Alternately, if you got a universal lens hood that screws into the filter threads, you should’ve gotten one that screws into your specific thread diameter. If not, you need a step-up or step-down ring like >>3482024 said.

Not really, a canon 5D classic costs about 250usd these days and it's a pretty good camera despite lo pixel count

A good quality lens on a mediocre body is better than a shit lens on a pro body.

Lenses don’t become outdated as fast as bodies do.

How do you all insure your gear? Do you just put riders on your HOI?

Pic unrelated, but I need a photo I took myself to post, as per rules

If you do this for a living... Yes.

A warranty will cover stuff. Some even let you take out accidental coverage.

Insurance will cover stuff if it gets stolen.

>>3477842
op why don't you rent the gear and get the rental ins?

>You're literaly just betting that you're gonna damage you crap before you pay out what that damage is worth.

You're betting that $10,000 of lost gear would ruin your primary income source. $300/yr to avoid that scenario is preferable to the chance that one stolen bag and you're effectively ruined.

Found a few raws from a couple of years ago. Some thicc girls. Not really diverse enough to warrant a new thread, but people ignore /rpt/s and the death of any gear-brand thread is desirable. Any input appreciated. Thanks.
