The exact reason why I used it was to not bother my boomer father with “tweaking settings that can break the camera”
>>
Why do all boomers follow the same formula when taking pictures?

Landscapes
>Max out dynamic range
>max out saturation
>max out clarity
>huge water mark in some cursive script at the bottom

Portraits:
>literally the same thing but in black and white
>>
>>3518167
>>Max out dynamic range
Not a boomer but isn't making dynamic range higher makes it better?

>adolescence is when you realize your parents are fucking retards
>adulthood is when you deal with it
>>
>>3518205
Yes but in the specific stereotype I'm talking about, they go too far with it, so much that the picture doesn't look natural
>>
>>3518167
Boomerportraits:

>selective color on eyes or lips
>"it's not in focus, but you can tell whats going on"
>hands the model a brick to spice up a lost place shooting
>"do something with your hair"
> trashcans in the background
> scarcely clothed, overweight 30-something in a reaped corn field
>>
For some reason beyond my comprehension boomers just love to deep fry their images.
See pic related.
At least they are keeping flickr afloat by buying pro subscriptions for their horrible work.
>>
>>3518516
Yes, indeed...
>>
>>3518167
Boomers also love to limit themselves to the golden hour.

My boomer uncle told me he never shoots outside of it and proceeded to demonstrate his nikons ability to do selective color processing in camera.

how does it feel having a father that thinks you're stupid? he's probably pretty disappointed to have you for a son. maybe try telling him that you're gay or that you jerk off to cartoons. see how much pain you can cause him over the proceeding years that he is obliged to accommodate your existence
