The one you have with you!

Lads, I have a bunch of fun taking pictures, but when I look at them in Lightroom I always feel like they are boring, uninteresting or straight up trash. This makes me pretty depressed, and I just stop going out to take pics for months at a time. It's not like I even put them on flikr, Instagram or any other photo-social site and get poor ratings, I just hate everything I shoot and I feel like I can never do anything right.

Does anyone else struggle with this?
>>
>>3522244
Same, pretty much.
I actually like some of my photos but I still feel like they hold no value whatsoever to anyone other than me.
>>
>>3522244
this one in particular lacks a clear subject
>>
It's nice to have photos that other people like, but unless you shoot for money or clients otherwise, you're really the only person you have to please. Make sure others opinions or perceived opinions of your work don't dictate how you shoot or your reactions to come back with so much, should this be the case.
>>
Yeah i can relate to that though friends and family always tell me how great my pictures are, but usually the ones that they say are great/beautiful/whatever are the ones i like the least. Additionally noone ever criticizes any of my shots, the only “valid” criticism i get is here on /p/.

Back again with a plethora of new photos, the first half are all shot in Rawlins, WY. The other half is shot in Cambridge Springs, PA. Got to go on a vacation there and it was a breath of fresh air to shoot around trees bigger than 40ft

Anyways, please feel free to post any of your lowlight stuff here, and all insight or thoughts are welcome

Thanks for the tips mate. I worried too much. Flash really helps a lot. I can do 1/320 comfy with iso under 800. Trying to snap one of those motion'd backgrounds as well but still dont have enough winners, so not risking it yet.

for a first attempt thats pretty goddamn good my man, i for one LOVE working with light pollution, because it creates such a satisfying ambiance when utilized correctly

this is just how i wouldve edited it, but i suggest you watch your levels (assuming youre using photoshop) and make sure the brightest parts of your image (the sun, stars, lights, etc.) ARE the brightest things there, not just a light grey

that and watch your greens, theyre a huge bitch to edit, there is a fine line between a decent green tone and piss/neon hi-lighter

Thanks a lot for the tips! You definitely make light pollution work, I like your pictures.
The colors on my original picture do seem dull compared to your edit. I tend to be very conservative with my editing to avoid Ken Rockwell tier photos.
Here's what I came up with after a little more tweaking.

I usually just look for skies like this. Makes it really easy to edit.
If not, and your picture doesn't has blue elements expect the sky in it, playing with the saturation and luminance of the sky should do the job

Noob here. How close can a raw image be brought to the look of this picture?

source: https://www.instagram.com/p/B0ZFE3rAXlS/
>>
This image doesn't seem to be highly edited, or edited at all... it seems that it was good lightning but if you use the slider for shadow and blacks you can bring back the details and also bring down the highlights. Look at your histogram that none the highlights or the shadows are clipping.

But if you look at the photo the sun was not completely illuminating his face it was taken in the shade that helps to create soft light and shadows.
>>
>>3522257
And do you have some basic rules for the exposure and ISO settings? The colours are a bit pastel like.
>>
>>3522262
ISO, and Exposure are relative to the scene.

For portrait photography you can start with selecting your aperture, do you want a blurry background or do you want everything in focus? (example: f1.8 blurry, f8 in focus); After you decided your aperture now you have to select you shutter speed and ISO, you want to keep your ISO as low as possible to avoid noise, but this is not always the case like when indoor shooting or low light photography.

so for example if you are using a 50mm f1.8, you want to keep your shutter speed over 1/50 to avoid camera shake, but this wont avoid motion blur, so if your subject blinks or move its head you will get motion blur.

A good way to start if you are new to using your camera is using Aperture Priority (A for Nikon, Av for Canon) which means you will pick your aperture and the camera will decide the shutter speed and ISO for you (this is good for portrait and non moving subjects)

Shutter speed priority (S for Nikon, Tv for Canon) is good for freezing action, so you will pick your shutter speed and the camera will decide the apeture and ISO for you.

about colours when shutting raw, it will all depend on the software you are using to edit your images, since the photo is a raw image the camera will no affect the colors of it. I personally use adobe lightroom and there is a dropdown menu to select color profile. on the 2 images that you share it looks like they were using "Flat, Neutral, or Portrait" profiles, since there is not a lot of saturation in the image.

Hope everything I said makes sense to you.
>>

Just don’t oversaturate, avoid pure whites/blacks and add some grain.

FF camera with decent bursts (amateur groups need bursts). 1-3 high end primes in suitable focal lengths.

If not in perfect sunlight, strobes that actually can shoot bursts at decent power.

Simple shit, mostly just good gear.

You're going to have a much easier time with 28 or 35mm. If you are shooting wide open, make sure everyone is in focus. It's more practical to shoot groups with f4 or f5.6 and still maintain a sufficient background blur. Also what this anon said: >>3522210

I'm looking to get an A7iii, and along with that one portrait lens + one semi-wide angle lens for street photography.

Budget is limited, so I'm looking at the Sony FE 28mm F2, the upcoming Sony 35mm F1.8, and the Sony 85mm F1.8.

I'm getting the 85mm for portrait, so between the 28mm and 35mm which one would you recommend for basically a walk-around lens?

But the 35, at least on the Nikon side has less distortion and is great for straight lines and buildings with people in the background and that lens is 30 years old I can only imagine the Sony one being even better.

My actual walkaround is a 50 1.4 AF-D but I keep the 35 in my pocket it's a very small lens

The 50 1.8 AF-D is basically a Series E 50 1.8 with AF and a little bit better coatings. It's a winner at f2.5 and up. I had one in my bag for a while.

The 1.4-D has it's own wide-open issues. It's a bit soft and has hellacious sphereochomatic abberations in the blue range on high contrast points of light, pic related. It's still a winner and I kind of like the whole dreamy look it does wide open.

I'm looking at buying a Canon EOS M50 as my first mirrorless. The kit lens only goes up to 45mm and I'd like a little more range without having to carry two lenses around and switch them again and again. There are lenses direct from Canon (18-150mm, https://www.saturn.de/de/product/_canon-eu10-2180716.html) and from Tamron (18-200mm, https://www.saturn.de/de/product/_tamron-af-di-iii-vc-1867206.html) but they're north of 450,- €.

I found a decent Tamron lens for an EF mount (18-200mm, https://www.saturn.de/de/product/_tamron-b018c-2029201.html) and it's under 200,- €. I was thinking of buying that and using it with an adapter (Meike MK-C-AF4, https://www.amazon.de/Adapterring-von-Canon-EF-S-auf/dp/B00YES32HM/). I have to admit I've never used an adapter. Autofocus and IS will work according to my research. Are there any downsides to this setup besides size?
>>
Fuji.
>>
>>3522039
i'm also thinking of buying the m50, only downside i've heard about using the non-canon adapters is that they transmitted more noise when focusing which could be heard when filming, not sure if it is true, otherwise i think they just act as an electrical pass through
>>
>>3522043
Any specific model?

I almost never film videos so noise doesn't make a difference to me.

Is a photo taken from an already existing piece of art, an artform of and in itself?

like: If i take your photo, print it out and take a photo of it, could this be seen as photography too?

pic related: a photo taken of one of the most important pieces of art. Is the photographer who took this photo an artist by doing this?

i just had this random thought i'd like to share, i don't even know if this is the right place for this, i hope you don't mind. i'm usually not lurking here.

You're a hypocrite, sort of.

Photography really has three main modes: fine art, journalism/documentary, and commercial (there is no such thing as "professional photography"). They all serve different purposes, and all can overlap with the other even if only slightly.

Very briefly, fine art is interpretive. It seeks to make a statement. Journalism seeks to make a record of events using the camera's dispassionate eye. It mostly tries to avoid making a statement. Commercial photography is trying to sell you something or somebody, typically done with great skill.

Photographing someone else's work typically falls under "documentary". The value of the photograph lies in the record, rather than the interpretive skill of the photographer. The further the work strays from document, the more it falls into the fine art category. Sometimes the argument can be made that the curatorial effort is artistic on its own. That's why guys like Richard Prince or the google street view photographer can sell prints of other people's work. The work existed previously in a "raw" state, and by the act of selection and reproduction the work becomes the artist's. However, and it sounds stupid but that's just the way it is, you'll probably need an MFA in photography or at least know how to write an artist's statement couched in artistic jargon to be able to pull that swindle off.

In terms of architecture, literally every element was slaved over for years, considerable expenses spent and generally a hell of a lot of effort went into it. Then you walk up and snap a photo and say "I MADE THIS". It's nonsense. The architecture literally factored in how the building would look on the skyline, when it would look best depending on the position of the sun, and even where someone should stand if the building were to look really impressive (e.g., where you're standing and taking a photo). So, where does your photo stand? Is it fine art? Documentary journalism? Commercial?

cont'd (with my tripcode lamo)

A good middle ground, and something that would show enough academic rigor to make your photo actually worth something in society, would be to do a tremendous amount of research about the building. Find out who the architect was. When was it built? What are the architectural details? Make it almost a collaborative effort, and include that shit either as a caption or an actual printed piece of material if you have physical prints. Educate your audience, and pay respect to the architect while also highlighting your own contribution and interpretation. In essence, you're saying "here's what So-and-so did, and here's my interpretation of it."

Documentary photography also has value, ESPECIALLY with architecture, city planning, etc. Shoot the same building from the same angle many different times. Or make an incredibly high resolution photo of it to serve as documentation of it's particular state in a particular time. Get a large format camera with perspective correction. Shoot the same building over a span of a year. If you live in a dynamic city like Manhattan where shit changes every six months, be an objective, dispassionate observer and merely record the changes. Are business changing frequently on the ground floor? Document that. Is there new construction on the facade? Document that. The strength in documentary photography lies in the relative ease of making unlimited high fidelity copies of something that exists in the real world. Don't just do a one-and-done. Be rigorous. Shoot the shit out of it.

They are boring.
>>
>>3521911
About right.

Colours and processing are alright, even the grainy look is pleasant.
But they're busy and not much happens.

>>3521904
This one is only about the streetsign so works a bit better.

>>3521903
Girl helping lady would be interesting, umbrellas would be interesting, but you're way too far so it's just noise.

>>3521907
It's just a creepshot.

This. I looked at them for a good minute or two and I guess he was going for "street" but there's just nothing going on in the 3 he posted. I spot what looked possibly like 2 hookers in >>3521907
pic but they just appear to be standing there and were probably not even intended to be part of the shot.

Yeaaaaah, but Leica's a poor-man's camera, and despite the fact that it's worth the hype, AND that having one makes you super cool and a good photographer, not many people are interested in them.
