Why? You can do everythin with software in my post that you can with paid software. People are just more used to paid shit plus there are more tutorials for it.

Are you positively sure of that? I will be waiting for your "top 10 essential things missing from gimp". Can't be hard to find 10 things in "very long" list.

Here’s some photos I tooks with my D3400 while exploring some abandoned places few hours from Sydney.

Is there a forum on 4chan where people post photos and stories from abandoned places? I’ve seen a few on /x/ but it’s mostly just spook stories not as a hobby.

>>
>>3436737
thanks for the explanation. I don't think he mentioned what his shutter speed was.

If you have a shutter speed longer than ten seconds or so, the vibration from hitting the shutter becomes increasingly irrelevant. It's kind of counterintuitive. You could even hit the button yourself and it probably won't affect the final photo.
>>
>>3436778
>I don't think he mentioned what his shutter speed was.
Oh, you're right, I saw '10 seconds' when I glanced up at his post looking for it and didn't realize I was looking at the self timer duration rather than the exposure time.

If you are shooting raw, is there a technical difference between white balancing in-camera and white balancing in the raw editor?

(I mean, aside from the ability to white balance off a card in-camera)

>>3436510
Thanks, appreciate that
>young/under 30 y/o "good" photographers which are pushing boundaries
I don't know any as I'm not much into following what's new, and it's hard enough to get good photographers under 30
For pushing boundaries though, I think there's yet to come someone to beat Ernst Haas and Miguel Rio Branco in color photography; as for b/w, Wolfgang Moersch is shooting mostly trees but it's beautiful

>For pushing boundaries though, I think there's yet to come someone to beat Ernst Haas and Miguel Rio Branco in color photography
b-but what about Saul leiter, William egggleston, Luigi ghirri, Stephen shore, Harry Gruyaert, Alex Webb?
>>
>>3436534
What you mean? They're all masters as well, especially Saul Leiter and Harry Gruyaert who might just be on same lv as the previous ones

Ernst Haas was the one to set the bar up there; not only that but he taught people how to do it

Thing about Miguel Rio Branco is that he's been able to make it by including people and packing color (like Alex Webb as well, but more intensely); his exhibits has big slides project continuously which (for me) brings color to another lv when viewing in person

Shooting on a Pentax k-1 with a 31mm 1.8 limited and 70-200mm 2.8 tamron for a year now and I fell it is just not fun anymore.
My setup feels bulky and heavy and a hassle to carry around, also AF can be a miss. I started with landscapes and I feel I am growing out of it and moving on to shooting street/people.
At the same time I am losing motivation to go out and shoot. (also winter time)
Is getting new gear the solution or it is more the lack of motivation that is affecting me.
Anyone else had a similar experience? What do?

Don't try to force it. Sometimes taking a break can also be good.

FWIW, personally I seldom specifically "go out to take photos". I go out, possibly to an interesting location (or then not), just for the interest of going there/doing something/getting out of the house.

Often I have a camera with me, in which case photos might happen - or they might not, if I don't feel like it, weather/light isn't quite right, season is wrong, or whatever. Sometimes I might haul an entire backpack of camera gear junk and tripod with me on some daytrip, end up taking a couple of snapshits at best, and still not feel disappointed - because "taking photos" was never the sole reason for my trip.

While I do often plan locations/outings with photography in mind, I don't stress it. Photos happen when conditions are right, and that's not every time I'm out and about - such is life. Photos come to me if they are to come - I try not to forcibly chase them, because that what sucks the fun out of it, for me at least.

Winter is a bitch. You'll get by average five good days of good shooting light, and months of shit. Open up your May folder and do some backlog processing, read some theory, improve your knowledge, and plan some future excursions, that should give you a bit of motivation.
>>
>>3436605
That's a good philosophy to have. Well written anon.
>>
It's okay to be unmotivated. Taking a break from the process is good too. Don't get down on yourself, this is art and if you don't feel like you can make the craft what you want, then you have the freedom to step back and think about things at your own pace. Even forget about it for a while, that's fine too. Maybe some time away can allow you to get excited about the simple things again.
>>
I agree with >>3436605 winter is just gunna suck the life out of you cause you haven't been able to go out and shoot. I had a fun trip in Japan in January and haven't shot since then cause it's so cold my gear would run the risk of damage. Go review some past stuff, read some books talk to some like minded people - anything to just wait out the drought.

Personally I'm working on my editing backlog, but what I really wanna do is go out and shoot film. But that's not really doable with below -20C weather I've seen the last 2 months. Gear might help you if you say get a macro lens around normal range and try macro photography around the house or indoors.

It's like running any business. Come up with a product or service that is either niche and/or desired. Be a professional with your clients and have an excess of gumption. Don't expect things to happen overnight. Be smart about money and never go into debt for a photography business. Diversify the methods you have to make money (don't put all your eggs in one basket) and always be on the lookout for methods of income that don't require any actual work.

It's taken me a decade, but I now have a stable and growing business based solely on landscape photography.

Idk, a creative agency perhaps? Or just sell your stock photos.

Usually when I stumble upon such pieces of work, I set the picture on full screen and prepare myself some coffee (sometimes even an expensive bottle of red wine) and stare at the art whilst drinking my beverage. It really takes a giant idiot to think that these delicacies are appreciated by a quick 'image hover' on 4chan, when in reality one has to study it as if it were in a museum. Who would appreciate 'Starry Night' if it was on your $200 phone's screen (because let's be honest, if you're a regular in this board you're most likely poor) or on your 1080p Black-Friday-Deal laptop? Distance yourself from your own mental limitations and do something right for once.

Anyways, when I finished my drink I had to take a moment for myself, if you know what I mean. This picture has led me to believe that I must obtain whatever gear you used in order to take my craft one step closer to your masterpiece. What a magnificent photography you have created here, Anon. I cannot believe that your work hasn't been published in magazines, or presented in art galleries all around the world. Truly, a thing to behold, and it boggles my mind that you're not a tripfag (or else, I would follow your work closely). Even the title of this work is just... I... I have no words to describe what I felt!

Please keep us updated! This board needs more professional photographers like you. If only half of the idiots that browse this board would have an ounce of your creative mind, this wouldn't be such a barbaric, gear-fagging board as it is in its current state.

Thanks for making my day Anon, and I wish to see more of your art often. You should sign your photographs!

I bought a Canon 5D MK1 a few months ago. These are some photo's since I've owned it. I haven't used it as much as I thought I might, so maybe I'll sell it. Getting used to editing raw files is probably the biggest motivation to keep it. That and the ability to borrow lenses from work.

Anyways, tell me how bad these are. Ordered from oldest to newest. No particular patterns or theme.

Guild Park and Gardens is the proper name. I haven't been to Ontario place in years. Is it free to go there and wander?
>>
>>3435844
Thanks.

Not sure...I know they've turned part of it into a park, which I believe is free. I'm not sure what kind of access it gives you to the rest of the complex. But I saw some photos from some locals from yesterday, and it made me think it's worth investigating. I'll report back if I go today/tomorrow.
>>
>>3435844
Reporting in.

I went yesterday, and it was fully open. I don't think you can go into the actual structures, or across the enclosed bridgeways, but you can walk around the surrounding property. It wasn't very busy people wise, but the weather was pretty shit anyways. I'll post photos later, but will likely go back at sunset. It's kind of cool, since things are falling apart and you get some nice views from that area.
>>
>>3436627
Oh nice. I haven't been there in years despite living pretty close, but it was pretty much all open at that time. Maybe there have been some issues with vandalism recently or something.

Either way it's one of the more interesting places to take pics in the east end. The bluffs are also nice at the right time of year, along with that castle-looking seminary that sits atop.

>>3436627
Oh, I read that's again and you were talking about ontario place lol. Thanks for info

Is there a more affordable compact alternative to the contax t2 for casual portraits on 35mm? I’ve used a few, like the XA2 which had a mushy shutter button and the mju ii which has a very unflattering flash I believe due to the proximity to the lens. I shot a few rolls on my friend’s t2 and I loved every photo I shot of them and even the portraits with the flash looked really appealing but I don’t know if there’s a way to get this without spending a thousand on a basically unrepairable camera.

Psst...A bit of insider info. These are getting hoovered up by the big German / Jap collectors' stores atm. The T2 hype has hit its peak and it's becoming common knowledge that the camera doesn't live up to its status. The Minilux on the other hand...consider it unobtainable in 6 months.

Oh no, now that hipsters have figured out about them, I will no longer be able to pick up Leicas for sixpence a dozen. For so long, Leica cameras have been this hidden gem that no one in the photography world knew about, but I guess that time is over.
