Do any of you guys produce (amateur or pro) any work that allows you to live/earn a decent amount off it ?
If you do, what field (fashion, architecture, portraits, ...) do you practice most ?

I'd rather just dump my shit strait to public domain.
If someone wants a print they can just send that shit to a printer and get it.
I don't know why anyone would want one of mine as a print. They're not that good, but if someone did want one for whatever reason, I consider all of my released works to be under the WTFPL.

Time off from covid has given me the time to put together a website, review like 7 years worth of photos etc. working on a website to take my 2-3k photography earnings year into a full time business. Wedding season is about to boom and with low numbers guest count wise. You can bet people will be willing to pay more for photography and will be printing up a storm to send family.

It’s gonna be a beautiful start to my career. Goal is to make 50k. Essentially 1k a week between shoots and sales.

Only professionals should be buying standalone cameras nowadays.
Hobbyists should just buy a decent phone, it has more features than just a camera and nowadays the camera on a phone is almost indistinguishable to that of a high end camera.
It can even do great bokeh effects through the use of ai like in pic related
Only down side is you can't change lenses but there are many settings and multi camera setups to fix this nowadays

Then start practicing lad, you're not "creating something you didn't see" unless that's what you aim to do. When you took that photo, did you see the darker areas as soft and fuzzy, with muddy colours and speckled noise? No? Then you forced your camera to give you a photo that doesn't represent what you saw and you've done exactly what you claim you're trying to avoid.

I do. I’m aware I was just quoting both of you. Queens. I’m actually headed to the city later today to catch some flicks before a bumble match. Recent city photos always impress bitches. Not a fan of the new lights they installed in the oculus though.

>>3828972
You understand you can see something without literally seeing something. Fuck I swear the people who post on this board are dense as fuck. No wonder I eclipse other local photog who went to school for photography. Their mindset for creating and creative vision is one track from what they learned from some washed up academic.

>I find post to be extremely boring, and a crutch.
So do I, that's why I've got something like 80gb worth of unedited RAW files at the last time I took notice kek.
>I don't want to create something, that I didn't see, in post.
You never really see it the way the camera does anyway. Your eyes don't crush shadows and blow out highlights (well, they shouldn't) or shit up your night vision with electronic noise.

How does /p/ feel about Luminar? I’ve purchased it for quick touch up on portraits. Haven’t used it much yet aside from a product shoot. It for sure has some interesting flair to it and tools that cut down on post processing time. Absolutely can save a few trash photos if you don’t get what you intended to.
I personally find masking very tedious and for like 100 this will save me a ton of time.
>any one use it?
>any tips or tricks not obvious to people already familiar with post processing?

I’m not gonna lie the sky replacement tool is pretty wild. I’ve easily turned around some dull shot that were otherwise great with a shit overcast sky.

Ah I just got me a fat fucking raise at work and will have the disposable income to pic up a hobby other than jerking off to anime titties, I used to be into photography in highschool perhaps I should but a camera.

Wormji screechers lurk this board hating anything that isn’t straight out of a cannon with 10 minutes of post processing. It’s boring and they have no artistic style to their photos. They just screech about the exposure triangle and perfect numbers. These are people who take the science of photography and turn it into soulless production. I produce my vision. People who screech wormji are trying to get some Windows 98 wallpaper design colors.

I'm looking for something basic and beginner friendly, something that isn't too complicated but kinda gives you a feel of what it's like working with a "real" camera. Preferably not too pricy either.
If any of you guys have some suggestions for good cameras for beginners please let me know :)

To play devil's advocate, x100 requires lots of awareness from user to take full advantage of it. Those cameras are high quality, well performing, insanely beautiful, but not nearly as obvious as traditional DSLR/mirrorless. Imagine that you've only just learned what this entire exposure triangle is, and then you get a camera that
>doesn't quite show you what lens sees when used in optical mode, so you're trying to focus on something 1m away from you and you miss due to OVF parallax
>doesn't yield particularly amazing results if you process photos in lightroom unless you use different raw converter or shoot jpeg
>uses 35mm focal length, which is pretty great but also doesn't feel nearly as low-effort-high-reward as 70mm+ bokeh close ups that every newbie has to shoot before moving on

Still, i can't really discourage anyone from getting it, and it's not like snapping a photo on full auto would be a rocket science, so it would be usable even if you're new. The answer i like the most is probably >>3827984: get a full-blown standardized old dslr, get bunch of cheap lenses with time, go wild with technology, and then do your next purchase as an educated camera user, knowing exactly what you want.

still, x100 series are amazing cameras and if anon feels like it's worth a shot, then it probably is

"Let's argue about cameras that cost less than 500 bucks again" edition
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.

My local WallShart has a GoPro hero 7 white for 89$ bucks, is it a low enough of a price to justify buying it?
I would like to get some footage on head, chest, over the shoulder, crotch, wrist mount and so on and I expect it to get hit with a sword from time to time, one thing I'm concerned about is the software stabilization and if it will be enough with all the spastic movement that I will do. Don't have a real need for 4k yet and I'd rather crush my balls then edit it on my coomputer.

God I regret so much for not going for it. At the time it's merely 110usd more than the standard version. I hesitated as the reviews says it looks like it's been dug out of a ditch after 30 second of use. A few months later I saw used one on display in the local camera mall and saw a Dura silver version and my god does it look glorious. It looked almost like the contax G2 in the store next door.

I'm aware that when putting a prime lenses on a crop sensor, you're actually getting a "bigger" image i.e. a 35mm is actually closer to a 50mm on a crop camera.

My question is, does this only affect the "image size", i.e what's in frame? Or does it also affect the DOF?

Pic related. I'm wondering if my background blur will still be like the 35mm, or more like the 50mm

I shoot potraits on what is effectively a 75mm f3 lens and it still comes out nicely.

No emirs aren’t impressed by bokeh any more, chump. iPhones can do it now.

what you were meant to say is "fast primes aren't that expensive", so either you're really really dirt poor or you have no idea what you're talking about
