Dear /p/.

I asked you before about various tips on stage and cosplay photography. Last week I went into con and did lot of photos (over 780 total) and while I did improved in some aspects (and got new lenses, as you suggested - 35mm f/1.8 and 70-200 f/2.8), I still feel that Im lacking a lot to make those photos interesting. That's why I want to kindly ask you for critique and advices about improving my photos.

I cant figure out how to make cosplay photos look better than what one would call "snapshits". I did gather courage to actually suggest some changes from standard "stand still" in some cases and it shoes the difference but it still seems lacking. Likewise, I cant figure out how to make stage photos more interesting if one is basically confided to one position and cant move around for different angles (I never asked but I guess Im not important enough to ask con orgs for "special" rights). Or without moving around, it's hardly possible? Also, what's general strategy for shooting in such low light conditions on stage? This time I went shutter mode with 1/200s and allowed auto-iso with max 1600 (3200 is noisy as hell since its APS-C and not full frame) so I won't have to correct it mid-shooting and it went out nicely except that roughly half of photos have small motion blurr. So 1/200 is still not enough at longer distances?

I hope you don't mind another photo upload thread and thank you for any advice.

>>

Oh shit https://www.redsharknews.com/production/item/3090-the-camera-that-caught-the-kennedy-assassination Yeah as the filename suggests the advertisement is from 1960, so 3 years before the shooting.
>>
>>3515575
I read that as the camera guy who shot Kennedy lol
>>
>>3523366
Should create a fake advertisement with a narrator reading the advertisement as the Zapruder Film plays out.

"Let's make a video about shooting portraits in a tool shed! The shed doors act similar to large flats that you'd find in a studio! Please ignore the fact that it's 2019 and I never learned how to use a flash of shoot higher than f2.8."

I'll give her the benefit of the doubt and say that the film photos are not terrible, Portra 400 has nice skin tones, but all her digital photos she went crazy with the processing and the model looks sunburnt or orange instead of making the skin look darker.

If only natural light and f1.2 - f1.4 gets you 515k YouTube subscribers, I must be doing something wrong.

Like, not to be a dick, but landscape photography is itself quite saturated in cliches and kitsche imagery. It has it's own formulaic principles: wide angle, f/8-11, long exposure, HDR, ND filters, foreground interest. By all means, shoot whatever you want, just realize cliches exist in every style of image making at this point.

It entirely depends on the amount of followers you have on social media. Since a percentage of those people will check out your Patreon.
So no. For most photographers it isn't worth it.

>>3523192
They are even starting to cripple the D7x00 line.
The D7500 added a lot of nice features (4k, radio control for flash, tilty screen, iso buton that makes sense) but for some reason Nikon thought it was a good idea to take out the second card slot and to remove metering for AI lenses. There is also no battery grip.

You're a samefagging idiot who thinks we were all born yesterday, as if we can't see that you're extremely butthurt that someone told you your photo sucks and you need to justify to all of us in the most painful way possible.

>>3523230
If you're so against 4chan, why are you here? Oh yeah, because all you want to do is advertise your instagram. You don't want any criticism or thoughts on your photos beyond "nice!" or "good work!". You're another faggot who, for whatever reason, thinks you can use this site to gain followers. That's why you're so butthurt by anybody here having any thoughts about your work. You can't handle the honesty. And you can't even be honest and openly say it's you who is upset, you have to hide behind samefagging pretending to be someone else. You should be the one ashamed by that weak cowardly shit, not us.

He also repeatedly accuses others of being mentally ill when he's so far gone he thinks other anons can't see the blatant samefagging and obfuscation/lies. He's the kind of guy who likes to make up ridiculously elaborate fake stories about his weekend at work to try and impress co-workers when everyone knows they're just desperate lies.

There's really no saving the deranged pedophile street predator that is Chosis. He's beyond pity now and more of an insideous persistent disease on this board.
