if you want to invest in X-mount lenses than I guess it's alright to start with the X-T100. The reviews about the X-T100 tell that the autofocus capability isn't very good. That means that you can expect that some shots will be ruined because your intended subject is out of focus. Apart from that it does exactly what a camera is supposed to do.

>>3550098
slow AF based on the reviews, probably similar to the Xf10 using the same processor.

Birds are fun to photograph.
Your image has good focus and exposure, but my eye is drawn to the ass-end of those two front birds.
Sometimes you can get the birds to look at you or be patient and wait for them to strike a better group pose

Usually just dumping whatever is the focus of a photo right in the fucking center of a photo is how you make boring snapshits. The Rule of Turds might be overused, but it works.

Your camera probably has that self timer mode that waits10 seconds, then takes multiple (3-10) shots. I agree that indeed Camera WiFi smartphone apps always suck.

That was what I did first then I get tired having to go back to my camera even though it took 5 shots every timer mode. Didn't know the wifi eats the battery life that fast.

What's the best RAW app? Which apps does /p/ use?

I'm primarily a darktable user but also use RawTherapee quite often. I've also used Photos app on a Mac for quick & dirty edits.

I detest subscriptions of all kinds so I stay away from Adobe.

I've heard good things about Capture One (my friend uses it) but I still stick to free apps.

What about you? What do you use and what have you tried in the past?

I use Darktable on Debian 10 for distortion correction and GIMP. I don't edit RAW files. JPEG is good enough for me when the exposure is done right. I would pay for Adobe Lightroom if there was a Linux version.

absolutely based

I've got the opportunity to join my country's Air Force as a photographer, but I'm not sure on whether I should take the job or not.

For the past year I've been trying to get into the industry as a "professional" and make a career out of it, but to no avail. So instead I've only been able to find work as a freelance photographer. If I take this job with the Air Force I'll have all the benefits of joining the Air Force, and a full-time job as a photographer earning $75,000/year.

But the problem is that I'll be shipped off to some shithole towns in the middle of nowhere. I'll be away from my family, friends, and girlfriend. There's a chance I'd be shipped overseas, which would be better than a rural town but at least with the town I know I'd be a 1-2 hour flight away from home.

So what do you think, /p/, should I take the job and fulfill my dreams of becoming a professional photographer?

If you take the job you and your gf will break up. Worst case, you try to make it work, and she cheats on you. Don’t expect a young girl to sit around waiting for you to come back from your military adventuring. You’re a young guy though, take the job, do it for a few years and find another broad and marry her once you’re out.

What do you guys wear when you shoot on the street particularly shooting people. Do you try to look like a tourist? Do you use a discreet camera?
I like to shoot at events like food markets and I’m looking for something which would give me a licence to shoot whatever I want however I want. Basically, like pic related.

Any other tips to stop people confronting you or getting annoyed?

It actually does because it would be a sign that OP has money. People with money aren't really depressed. The worst depression comes from having nothing, living in discomfort, squalor and having no agency to do anything because your good boy account is $0.00 and you need to focus on eating and you lose motivation for that and just go to sleep.

What would happen if I took a medium format camera out for street photography? Has anyone ever tried this?

They are notoriously bulky and "slow" and therefore I am wondering what the results would be like. This seems much easier now with the new Fuji medium format cameras.

I have a personal crisis with myself. I just plainly suck and I have anxiety attacks often as I have become more aware of just how terrible I am, especially when looking at the works of others.
This mainly concerns videography but also photography.
How come some are just so good at editing while my shit just look absolute trash? Like how are they so good? How do they know exactly how to take certain shots for B-roll and put them together to look so good?

I JUST WANNA BE GOOD AT SOMETHING OH GOD I WANNA DIE IF I CAN'T FIX THIS

Stop trying to just wing it and improvising. Pre visualisation is key. Don't need to sketch it out but write down a timeline and visualize it in your head. Visualize the shots you want and where. Have a script ready before you shoot. If there's dialogue or voice over, record it beforehand to know how much time it takes and if it flows well.

If you can't do that, say if it's an interview you need to have to s if b-roll ready so that you can cut to it when you cut the dialogue for pacing. Longer isn't necessarily better unless you think you're Stanley Kubrick, cut it short and tight. Set arbitrary constraints for yourself before you start, most people produce better work when they have some constraints. Like do t allow the use of fades or dissolves. Do t allow shot lengths longer than or shorter than a certain length, don't allow tripod, or force the use of stationary shots, only do handheld. Only use ambient light, or light everything. Force yourself to use f/4 or smaller apertures. Limit yourself to certain lenses.

When you constrain yourself arbitrarily your footage also becomes more cohesive.

>>3546776
Take the camera away from your face and actually look at the scene. The first and most important camera is your eye.

Also stop trying to compare your photography with others. There's always someone better than you. There's always someone worse than you. Just focus on you.

So the distance markers between the fstop on both the left and the right should be in focus? So like at f/8 it round be about infinity to about two metres and change?

How do you figure that? There isn't a clear horizon line to go with.

Instead you can take a vertical line that's near the center of the frame and make that straight, in this case it's the window lines in the building behind her head.

It's level.

Eye AF is a wonderful technology

Needing eye AF to capture a girl sitting in a field, not moving is sad.
Needing eye AF to capture a girl moving in more or less a straight line at the same speed is sad.
Thinking the jittery switching of focus between the weeds and her face looks at all aesthetic in a video setting is sad.

There is 0 content in this video where Eye AF makes a genuine difference and in the last mentioned example, a slow roll off on manual focus in tune with the music would've looked much better.
Is it easier to shoot? Sure.

Do you *NEED* it like OP wants to claim, absolutely fuck no.
