Tell me about the LA-EA4, I'm torn about where to go when my A-mount camera dies, might go to E-mount if that adapter is good

>YouTube and Instagram photographers now referring to photos as "bangers"

why do these people have to ruin every hobby

why do you care even a little bit? why do you even know that's a thing that's happening?

think positive,
they are separating from the 'normal' photograph, so they will not put us in the same bag

Right?

Imagine a /p/ where people actually cared about photography, and not Instagrammers. Maybe we'd all be accomplished journalists or artists.

I'm actually waiting for a Sigma 28 f/2.8 in the mail I got for dirt cheap (for Australian prices anyway) as well as some hilariously oversized off brand (Sun) full metal zoom lens that I only got because it was $5
Gonna pick up a K to EF mount adapter for these bad boys.

its a 28mm f/2.8 macro lens with a 52mm filter size you're welcome

what is a focal lens
>>
>>3549012
Focal is the brand name. They're cheap leises sold at Kmart back in the day.
>>
>>3547529
cheap lens rife with chromatic aberrations, purple fringing, softness from f2.8 to f11, and a lot of "character" thats good for video but bad for everything else.

Does /p/ calibrate their monitors? I calibrated my screen for the first time. I borrowed a colorimeter from a pro photographer friend and finally did all the calibration steps. He mentioned that he does it at least once a week and before any paid project.
Does the screen really change that much to warrant constant calibration???
Also, any recommendations for a cheap but good colorimeter? (I can't afford the one I just borrowed.. even a used one is way over my budget).

>never works
Maybe it was thanks to the monitor I had at the time but it worked very well. Not quite as good as the Spyder, but if the Spyder means >95% of prints look the same screen/print then with manual it was easily >85%.

I didn't even use an OS wizard like in your pic. I literally went into the monitor menu and with the test print open in PS fiddled with RGB levels until the screen matched the print in my hand.

Certainly a Spyder is the way to go but if you're a poor fag manual helps until you get one.

I'm an amateur landscape photographer. Never done anything professional.

I have a friend who works at a cafe. I guess he talked to his boss and they want me to come take some pictures of the business. They also want me to do some slight touch ups of the exterior to make it look nice.

I'm confident enough with the actual photography and photo editing, but I'm not sure what to do with pricing and delivery.

I figured I'd charge $60/hr for shooting and editing, shooting should just take like half an hour.

For delivery, do I just send them a few best photos that I've touched up? If I replace the sky, for example, should I include the original image as well as the edited image? Anything else?

Thanks lads.

I was working (pumping gas) at an airshow last spring and took about 100 shots of one of our tenants that happened to be there. Narrowed it down to the best ten or so for editing and just gave them to him.
We were going to see about having some blown up for print, but we all just kind of forgot about it.

I ended up having one 12x36 print made up and gifted it to him.
Now he is coming in next week with cash to have several made up.

Depends how much something is to you. $50-60 seems reasonable. Undercut the competition and show them your hobbyist work. Say you want some professional experience, and that's you're capable, but expect some compensation. Then once you understand your workflow better, you can change different prices in different structures. Nobody is going to cause a fuss over $50 for some reasonably good pictures with editing.
>>
>>3545452
That's a road into constant poverty. It's better sticking with fartsy prices and fishing for big spenders. They are mostly dumb, and their word of mouth counts hundred times those that are cheap. And if you manage to catch someone that isn't dumb, you can ride him to stardom. You see, investors know art prices are what you make them to be, and they know how to hype their own investments.
>>
>>3545488
Fair. I wasn't saying he should do that forever. I don't know his experience, age, or location. He may be a young lad. If so, he has more time than most others, it builds confidence and skills, and that money goes further. If he's already in a job, looking for another, he needs to stick to harder prices. It really depends on OP's situation, and he must judge it for himself. Everyone else was sticking to hardball tactics, so I went a different path.

All video related questions and discussion is intended for this thread. Here we discuss techniques, gear and anything else related to capturing video footage. Please don't pretend to be an expert if you don't know what you're talking about. Kindly leave your ego at the door.
Posting short films/scripts or other work you've done is encouraged.
We tend to use and recommend DSLRs/mirrorless cameras because they provide phenomenal picture quality for their price, have large sensors (ie the same size used in high-end cinema cameras and higher) and have interchangeable lenses.
In contrast, consumer camcorders normally have much smaller sensors and a fixed lens.

Check Kodak library of creative photography. Time life series that focused on beginner and intermediate photography. You should be able to get free pdf from various internet archives. Then you have Ansel Adams and his zonal theory for black and white.

His shit sucks, but seriously, fucking grow up. Before the bokehwhore trend set in to mask the fact that most photogs these days are talentless hacks that can't into contextual framing, deep focus was desired, especially for journalistic imagery.

Good job outing yourself as an amateur, amateur.

The second pic might work but it depends on security which, in turn, depends on just who you are photographing.

The first pic might work in specific situations probably not for a newspaper though. Zoom in and concentrate on facial expressions and hand movements.
