I enjoy Paul MiguelHe's very happy when he gets a nice photo and I enjoy his pure enthusiasm
pic related, obvpeter elgar's also pretty comfy
James Popsys is quite funny to watch
John Free by miles
>>3471526It's a joke my man. I think he has a good mix of entertainment and information.
>>3471518I love that guy, his channel is really nice.
>>3471529He's a shill for Panasonic now. I can't really enjoy his content now it's all in a roundabout way defending Panasonic cameras.My favourite is Ted Vieira but he quit YouTube to make podcasts a while ago.https://www.youtube.com/user/TedAVieira
POST YOUR PHOTOS AND ANONS RATE THEM. Not sure if this is allowed but some people told me it is. These are a couple of my photos. Rate them and help me improve. There's no "hate" comments, if they are garbage, they are and that's good feedback as well.[EXIF data available.

>>3472098He's barely even a photographer considering he's famous for his videography more than anything, the muh coffee intros, cinematic drone work and all that. Last I checked he's never had any famous photo books, exhibitions or even a zine. Not that doing those things is all that necessary these days but it shows his focus is more on video than photography. I've never seen a photo of his that knocked me on my ass, it's just moody cityscape #18492 buy my LR presets fodder. Respect the hustle though.
>>3471517Mitchell Kanashkevichhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tv4BzD5q1Abecause he's actually an exceptional photographer and videographer with great topics on his videosHis outstanding photography, his video editing, his crystal-clear explanations, his delivery, his voice, everything about his videos is super inspiringreally down to earth guy, doing what he loves in lifedefinitely can't recommend this guy enough>https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC13AGxW0HsbQz4KrFknpRRg/>https://www.instagram.com/mitchellkphotos/
Christopher Frostreally decent lens reviews, cute lisphttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxoyIXANauK4cEfy0Wc09IAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=juDenBJQLsE
>>3472197Isn't he an actual man of the cloth too?
>>3472488English is not my first language, what does that mean?
Nick Carver is good, mostly landscape on film
>>3471526What? Was he capturing those riots with a film Leica?
>>3476060He isn't a priest but he has mentioned that he had a website where you could read his written sermons if you had any interest.His review style is pretty comfy and I like that he's objective and also how he often reviews lenses on the mid to mid upper range rather than full blown gearhog
>>3476075Ah well, man of the cloth usually refers to actual clergymen, not just folks who share the word.
>>3472142this desu. I remember when he was hyping up that "bucket shot" video for months and then when it came out, it was another generic photo of lake luise with IG tier colors.
>>3476075He's a Vicar. and here's his wife too
>>3476117>cut the arms>leave the boobsWelp, he's not one of the closeted ones.If he's married what, church of england?
>>3476120He's from Wales actually
>>3476121so yeah, probably church of england.
Sean tucker - he actually cares about artistic aspect of photography. Art of photography should pay him to carry on his name.
Besides pic related and James Popsys....>David ThorpeKing of Micro Four Thirds. Accomplished award-winning press photographer. Traveled the world.

>>3471663>Mattias BurlingHe sometimes baits me into clicking one of his videos for some review or such, but I always insta close it once I hear his insufferable voice.
>>3472184He has pretty nice content
>>3476168I agree, youtube channel posts and drama should be against the rules.
>>3476204that's a problem with nearly every camera forum. even when you have experienced people that want to make threads about art or more advanced topics they will get buried under "what camera body should I buy" or "checkout these presets" threads.
Ted Vieira (Fuji, film)My personal favourite and extremely underrated. Down to earth guy with a killer deep voice. Good podcast too.https://www.youtube.com/user/TedAVieiraJohn Free (street photography)Old Man Shouts At You To Get Better. Comfy videos with a lot of knowledge about the craft of photography.https://www.youtube.com/user/JohnFreePhtographyAlistair Humphrey (adventure/landscapes)Really inspirational and somewhat philosophical videos filmed in the wilderness. Very comfy and not a shred of shill in his content.https://www.youtube.com/user/englishwildmanForesthillFilmLab (film)rarely uploads but always informative and interesting unedited long-form videos about the process of photographyhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbDG7XYhdWuSrRvhMcFxSeQNick Exposed (film)Nick is a genuinely optimistic God loving guy and while his content is a little meandering at times I think his heart is in the right place. Watch his zine series.https://www.youtube.com/user/NickExposedMatt Day (film, some digital)I personally find Matt a little bit boring but he's put me onto some great photo books and he avoids shilling.https://www.youtube.com/user/mattdayphotofilmshowSean Tucker (photography insp)I know a lot of people criticise Sean's photographic skills but he has some good advice that I've found helped me early on, such as how to approach photography as an introvert.https://www.youtube.com/user/seantuckermergeSweet Lou PhotographyNew channel with a no sponsored bullshit policy. Incredible energy and charismatic host. Worth following.https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXfFP9y8MzI8bn0Hp9RirOw
Ted Forbes (aop) has a huge backlog of great stuff where he teaches you about past photographers. Lately he mostly posts gearhead stuff which is lame but the man has gotta make money I suppose. He still does a weekly video where he shows his fans work and that's worthwhile at least.
>>3476219Report this thread as off-topic or low quality content then, mods will probably delete this one too. Especially since a lot of these posts are the YouTubers themselves stealth promoting themselves like on every board. They're everywhere shilling themselves.
I can't believe noöne's mentioned Steve O'nions, who besides his funny name, does some killer landscape stuff on his Bronica, and his videos are shill-free and about the photographing first and foremost. All film as I remember, digital only for videography.https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7FAbyJQdQTudmCJanZFRBg/videos linky.
Theres a very fine line between amateurs like us practicing and learning about fine art in photography, and literally having your own head up your ass or blowing 80s/90s photographers.You literally have people buying and using the same old shit they used on Ebay because of that "feel" or how a digishit snapshit some jap took is somehow more amazing because of some higher level of thinking the rest of us just cant reach. That line is crossed by almost everyone here and they hide behind "it's just criticism bro that's how 4chan works I miss old /p/"So now anons who are used to knowledge being spoonfed shit in threads, the ones who usually contributed or made them all moved on and what's left are all the lazy lurkers not willing to post shit and stew in nostalgia and mediocrity while simultaneously pulling any excited newbie down to their level of misery.

>>3476204>>3476219/lit/ have such quality because the people there are genuinely interested in digging deep.The topics of a board reflect the collective mentality of it, and let's face it photography as a hobby is quite shallow.Most treat it as a gateway to socialisation - impressing uninformed acquaintances and chicks, or entertainment - watching gear youtube vids like they're Seinfeld. Yes there are people who push the envelope, and they are called artists, but most are content with the status quo: bokeh cat pics, travel snaps, playing with shiny toys that get updated every year, etc.Enforcing rules won't change anything, it has to come from the users, and frankly the horde has breached the gate a long time ago.
>>3476311I hate to break it to you, but you are pretentious, and you're a hypocrite.
>>347631550% of rpt are trolls or ridiculously unskilled beginners. But there are people there that give insightful criticism. 40% of them are decent but their ego is through the roof and get defensive and actually offended that others say something besides "nice man keep it up" and the other 10% are getting there but dont evolve out of their niche or they post the same shit over and over (literally the same pic from 2017 or they shoot film and it's not considered snapshit because it was shot on kodachrome) and then theres chosis. When I post there I try to bring the bottom 50% up in skill so theres at least some sun shining. Idk.
>>3476204Then post some for fuck's sake, we can all agree this place is a shithole, try to be the change yadayada.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1cwu5HYUp0&list=PLO79SF4R6SwjlujxSLpAgw22-T7y_EGMk&index=3
>>3476316The hypocritical part is that you're just complaining about it instead of if doing it. Be the change and all that. Sit down and put together the works of someone that you think are important, then make the case for how and why and post that if you can't find anything you believe worth speaking about. It's highly ineffective to ask effort of others that you're not putting forth yourself.The pretentious part is holding up mu and lit at any point as examples of any kind of sophistication. They're literally pop culture, but on a smaller scale. The defining tastes of a subgroup, especially one that is built around rejection of the popular group, hold no special qualities over that of the popular group. Worship of the obscure and different is just as mindless as worship of the familiar. On a similar vein, exclusivity doesn't in and of itself add value over approachability. In some very important senses, it reduces value through minimal reach and difficulty of interpreting.If you ever really notice how the real masters of a medium talk about other works in that medium, you'll notice that they approach the other works with an open mind. They may still come away disliking things, but it's not until after they've taken the time and effort to fully consider it, and this is because they know that there's something that can be learned from most everyone. Person X may do a thing that's mostly crap, but has an interesting approach. Person Y may not have the creative ability to entirely create from "nothing" but can riff amazingly well off of other ideas. The pretension is in thinking that there's nothing you can learn from those who you think have less skill or creativity than you.
>>3476081He was previously actually a priest.
>>3476347Then if he no longer is one, he's no longer a man of the cloth. It's a pretty simple phrase. Why are y'all having so much trouble with it?
>>3476315>learning about fine art photography This isn't a fine art board. It's the photography board. Maybe some fags just want to take photos of warhammer models. Or of flowers. Or 7/10 insta girls.You don't get to decide what kind of photography is here necessarily. My suggestion would be to post a fine art photo thread, displaying both your artistic accomplishments and photos that inspired you.

>>3476057Came to post this.
>>3476350Actually, it is supposed to be in the vein of ic.
>>3472142>he's never had any famous photo books, exhibitions or even a zine>it's just moody cityscape #18492 buy my LR presets fodder. >respect the hustle though.Exactly my thoughts, I couldn't have said it better
years ago someone posted a 90s/80s photographer doing product/studio work and it was fascinating. c-can anyone help me identify this dude?
>>3476644>reeee not everyone is a fine artist like meeee.You sound like a pretentious jackass.
>>3476644>shut the fuck up faggot its not pop culture.It literally is. The only difference is scale. If you can't realize this, then you definitely don't understand any of this even close to as well as you want.Counterculture is explicitly defined by culture and serves the same gatekeeping function in subcultures as culture does for the wider population.>stop justifying your normalfaggotoryI'm justifying nothing.>take your entry level shit taste to somewhere else you failed normieLook at how much control culture and subculture has over you. You have to adopt the tastes and way of speaking. You shame those that nominally don't agree with you while imputing their standing with respect to your chosen subgroup.You're no better than some tween hanging off the tit of Jake Paul while making mumblerap videos on tiktok.
>>3476644>shut the fuck up faggot its not pop culture. stop justifying your normalfaggotory>take your entry level shit taste to somewhere else you failed normie Case in point lol. If I didn't know how retarded 4chan users are I'd think you're just joking, you're that non-self aware.
>>3476326Not the guy you're talking to, but I recently have been putting together interviews and series of different artists for threads on /p/, hoping to go beyond the usual gear threads and rpt and troll threads, but my latest thread was deleted soon after finishing with a warning not to post work that is not entirely my own.So unfortunately, those who see photography as an art which can be appreciated and leaened from (not just exercised) are at a disadvantage here.
>>3477065>>3477065Part of me is starting to believe you really suck at photography.
>>3477091Any way you could share them outside p?I'm not going to indulge in my paranoia about this place, but I think it's safe to assume very little of value can happen here.>>3477065This kind of posture maybe worked to stave off the eternal november, but it doesn't anymore, it's been meme to hell and back, it's just noise.I agree, there has to be a place where we can try to rise above mediocrity (try being a keyword). But I don't think it's possible without coherent and (more) transparent moderation.
>>3477118>dramafairgame>doxingfairgame>trollingfairgame>gerfaggotryfairgame>posting fine art photographydon't do it you bastard!Yeah, I don't get it either... Far fetched explanation would be copyright issues. Not my discussion, though. I enjoy amateurish /rpt/, and fine art photography equally. The gap from lowest shapshit to finest art piece can be insurmountable, or just a short step away. Some of my favourite photographs came from /rpt/. It's a gold mine if you only keep your eyes open, one in which I'll gladly deposit a nugget or two as well.[EXIF data available.

>>3477118and if we interview each other from the board?I liked that thread, its a shame it got deleted
>>3477065>at least they push the boundaries and they do for the medium [snip] start sucking their dicks. Of course this is the case, because dickheads like you are their only supporters and you do so through "everything you like is terrible and you're a horrible person for it". If you actually gave a shit about fine art, you could easily lead more people to it by drawing parallels to more popular stuff via things like common elements, but nope.>its because fine art needs time and patience if one wanna get into that work. I don't give a shit about counter culture.Then stop actively rejecting culture wholesale. >normalfaggots don't put the effort to actually look for good shit.You could say the same thing about every specialist interest.> also you're not wrong about gatekeeping but faggots assholes like this exist in every circle who use art as fashion accessory. >maybe not directly but indirectly you're justifying normalfaggotroy This is where you keep showing that you're not as clever as you think. I'm not justifying it; I'm telling you to not throw out the baby with the bathwater. Look at James Cameron. The guy doesn't have the first artistic bone in his body. However, he has pushed film lightyears ahead all because he wants to do shit like ride a submarine to the Titanic. Sure it was all technical ways in which he advanced the medium, but holy fuck did he shift that needle. He's important to watch because he's showing us new things that can be done with the medium and he really does it because he's interested in playing with the tech and pushing it as far as possible. Christopher Nolan is leading the fight to keep actual film a thing. Is anything these guys do artful? Ehh, not really, but what they're doing is still very important to the artistic world.[continued]
>>3477065>>3477190>fuck you, I don't belong to any sub groups. I only belong to photography. and I will shame the disgusting fucking shitheads who justify mediocrity. You miss the mark of the purpose of mediocrity: without the mediocre, the great couldn't exist in any valuable way. Should it ever be a goal of someone who thinks themselves an artist? Fuck no. In that, you and I are in complete agreement. Use what's useful, discard what's not.
>>3477118>why there is no place for photography enthusiasts on a photography forum?Because this is supposed to be a critical forum, not a discussion forum.
>>3477110I don't know about posting elsewhere, but I'm thinking maybe what I can do is start a thread with one picture and links to the artist's website and interviews, and then copy and paste an interview or two into the thread. >>3477118I'm glad you liked it anon! Didn't know it has been tried before with the same outcome.Not sure exactly what's going on in the minds of the mods, but /p/ can definitely use a new kind of regular content, and posting somebody else's work in a temporary thread seems pretty tame and appropriate. I don't even think rpt's are bad, but it's nice to have a thread dedicated to a trained and accomplished photographer so we can go a bit beyond ourselves and meet some new ideas of how photos can be made skillfully.
>>3477210Just read the rules homie./p/ - PhotographyOnly upload images that you, the photographer, have taken.Post only photos that show at least trace amounts of thoughtful composition. Do not upload random snapshots.Even though EXIF data is made available when encoded, please post as much relevant technical information as possible, such as: camera, kit, lens, etc.Include a short description with your photograph, such as when and where it was photographed and under what circumstances.As with the art critique board, only constructive criticism will be tolerated.
>>3477211>>3477210Now, I will admit that the rules don't explicitly state that it's a critique only board, but what's the clear intention of that particular set of rules?
>>3477211So posting someone elses photos is bad, yet all this is fair sailing to you:>>3473254>>3475497>>3477144>>3476841>>3469396>>3475749>>3473481>>3475922>>3474399>>3476710>>3446796>>3470857>>3477162>>3476427>>3471517
>>3477221Come to think of it. Terryposting is in the same boat. Why is Terry allowed, and posting other phototogs is bad? Is janny Terry?
>>3477221>to you:>implyingNope. I'm in your camp on thinking that such would be great for the board. I'm just pointing out what the rules actually say. I'll also point out that /p/ has always had shitty as hell moderation. I think the only reason the kind of crap you linked flies is that no one bothers reporting it.
>>3477224Try reporting, you'll be rewarded with hard as fuck captions for the rest of the month.
Generally dislike him, but this is a great videohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQp44QOk9l0
>>3476171I had the same problem, you get used to his voice eventually
>>3476871sweet sweet gearfag butthurt
>>3477672why do you think this is a great video?he doesn't share any groundbreaking secrets. Of course no photographer shows their entire body of work, that would be retarded
>>3478523Because a lot of people going in don't realize this, plus what I think is more useful for new people shooting events and the like is him talking through his thought process.Shit doesn't have to be groundbreaking to be really useful to new photographers. Sure, that video is pretty much a waste of time to anyone with experience, but that kind of info is useful to the new folk.
>>3471732Him and Nigel Danson are my favs.
>>3476168asking for those things is not mutually exclusive
>>3471567this is a bad pic, stop posting
aows is probably the only photographer who's videos I get excited to see. dude just seems so happy with himself and what he does and is so nicely soft spoken and is always getting creative with his techniques, like re-purposing one of his cameras into a photo enlarger for mobile darkroom printing. Not to mention he always looks mega comfy in his hats and sweaters.
>>3471517I like edourado pavez goye simply because hes a good street photographer with a good soundtrack to go along on his walks and if you watch youtube videos for gear reviews actually you are defininetly a piece of shit
Ken wheeler ftw
>>3480386>Doesn't know that nazism is a form of socialismyeet yourself
>>3480388Nazism is the short for National Socialism you tool
i don't know the best, but the worst is this dude. he uses the coolest gear to make the lamest pictures. i hate it because I feel like his pictures look like my stuff. reminds of how bad photographer i'm.https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTgaiv8YdmmNqI8STrpWc7w[EXIF data available.
