Minolta XD checks most of those boxes, but is still an interchangeable lens SLR, so not exactly pocketable.

Contemporary russian photographers: how they do it? Clean photo, no grain, great skin, great light.

I'm quite certain it's a good photo and a great post-production. Can someone teach me, o link me some good tutorial?

Interesting. Not the pictures. But the chengdu in the bottom. From people I’ve seen who traveled to China apparently they’re pouring billions into chengdu and it’s dramatically changed in the past few decades. The kids are brainwashed in schools to tell tourists that chengdu is amazing and they’re flying out Americans to work the hospitality trade because they want to make foreigners feel welcome especially the Asian elites who want to have whites as their servants. The fact that they have their own “alliance” when It comes to photography is interesting. Look into it. That city uses the same tactics NK is using when it comes to telling the outside world their little city is heaven on earth.

The uniform frontal lighting in in pics 2 & 3 is likely done by a gigantic softbox. I’d wager that most of the people here have never even touched a softbox, which is why everyone immediately thinks it’s all photoshop work. These photographers obviously had good gear too, and also did a good job in balancing the foreground and background exposure to be the same.

Sony a6400 being released today, has a selfie screen.

I think that's literally every complaint anyone has ever had about sony ticked off now.

So why do you still refuse to buy into the ONLY real camera manufacture left that do everything in house?

>Then why are there so many sony shills in every single thread and yet nobody posts photos actually taken by a sony camera?
1. There are absolute shit-tons of photos taken on Sony cameras all over the board all the time.
2. There are people advocating for their camera brand in every thread everywhere all the time all over the Internet. That's just the nature of photographers. We all say that the gear doesn't matter, but we also all secretly believe that our preferred brand is really better than the others, otherwise we would switch to some other brand. If we don't have the means to switch to some other brand, cognitive dissonance takes over and makes us decide that any advantages our brand has outweigh any deficiencies. So yeah, Sony has shitty ergonomics, but they've got more native lenses than any other mirrorless full frame brand, and their sensors are higher-specced than anyone else. Sure Canon's sensors don't have as high dynamic range as everyone using Sony sensors, but they've got better color science and deeper lens compatibility than anyone else. Sure Nikon is shit for full lens compatibility, but you can use any lens going back to the 70s (or 50s, depending on camera) with some level of compatibility, and they somehow have better image quality than Sony even though they use Sony sensors. Sure Fuji doesn't even offer a full frame sensor, but they have two medium format cameras, and everyone who uses a Fuji loves how they handle. Sure Olympus doesn't even have an APS-C sensor, but their lenses are smaller and lighter than anyone else's for a given zoom range. Sure, Pentax might not have the best camera bodies, the best lens selection, the best image quality, the best ergonomics, much in the way of full frame options at all, much market share, or really any other compelling reason to buy them, but anyone who thinks that all of those things matter is a gearfag whereas Pentax photos have soul.

It's all bullshit.
>>
>>3421559
...And to be clear, I'm a massive hypocrite because I'm all up in these threads hyping Canon, my brand of choice, at every opportunity. But--and this is key--Canon has not paid me one single red cent to do so. If they would like to, I would happily take it. As it is, the transfer of money has gone decidedly in Canon's favor.

So I spent the last 2 weeks all day digitizing over 2,000 old photos for my mom on our flatbed scanner and photoshopping any issues. So much hours were put into this. After I'm done my mom casually mentions that she still has all the negatives.

My question is, how much better are the negatives in quality? Like besides the dust and finger prints on the darker photos that I mostly photoshopped out, is all my work really rendered useless if one day I have the funds to pay someone to digitize all the negatives or for a nice negative scanner?

Some facts about the photos:
>Scanned in 450dpi
>Printed around 1991-2001
>Most prints were 4"x6", but some were 3"x5"
>All kept in great condition in binders away from sunlight. Negatives were kept in great condition too, in sealed canisters, in a box in storage.
>Not sure about what cameras they used, but we were poor to lower middle class all our life so I can't imagine they were that nice. The bulk of the photos were very mediocre in quality as is.

The only issue about the negatives is they aren't organized chronologically like the prints were. But still, in the long run if I had time and the funds for a negative scanner, would it be worth doing? Or would the quality difference between what I got and what the negatives could get be negligible?

Dear /p/.

Since last few months I slowly try to learn how to make photos and I would like to kindly ask you few questions related to those tries. I was practicing lately on plastic models I also do and Im unsure about pretty much lot of things.

1) How to figure out what kind of light source would be best in certain situation and how to prepare it? At first, I was using only natural light, shooting during summer in mid-day, using light coming from the window. During autumn and winter, I switched to LED light and light bulbs. Which one is better? LEDs I use are small ones that gives sharp, cold light, which of course gives mysterious effect but its very weak. At the other hand, light bulb gives warm light that fills up whole model, however lightens up surroundings as well (camera usually catches everything in yellow but just slight change to color temperature in darktable fixes this). Lately I experimented a bit with attaching sheet of tracing paper in front of both LED and light bulb (after noticing that my first external flash I bought have similar sheet attached) and as a result, light became somewhat more soft if I can use that word. Is this desired effect?
2) How can I make photos appear more lively? I mean, first look right away tells the viewer that they are looking at static plastic model. For example, pic related looks kinda static to me. How can I create illusion of catching one in the middle of movement? Basically the only ones that looks okay are where model is placed at not moving pose.

A lightbox can help a lot. I have some shitty one I got off amazon for $20 that came with two lights. I also have a YN360 lightwand on a tripod that's good for filling in missing light. If you want the focus to be on the figure then you'll want a clean background where the figure stands out. If you're shooting environmental stuff with it outside then you're gonna want a slightly wider lens to get the background in.

I take anime figure pictures like pic related, but also product photography for a couple of small record labels. I recently got this lens, too. Sigma 70mm Macro which I only use for these kind of photos.

Go to flickr or specialized sites like Myfigurecollection to get an idea of how people take their pictures. Lots of creative stuff on there.

How can I hide the holder then? The only other thing that comes to my mind is using strings to hold model like a doll but that would be a lot of work.

I don't know how to photomanipulate like you said. I don't have photoshop either. All modification I do is done using darktable software. I do have Corel Paintshop from recent bundle but didn't install yet.

Likewise cant get better lenses right now - Im simply too poor for that. Im living in central Europe and photography stuff is costly here so I have to save for longer periods and was buying most basic stuff so far like flash or tripod. The lenses I use are stock ones provided with camera body - Nikorr AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 ED VR. It does have minimal range of 0,45m for focus so I have to keep distance too.

For smoke I tried intense sticks. I heard of using e-smoke pens but its glycerine so it could make things dirty in long run.

Also, what metering mode? For models, I use point or center weighted.

Did I actually gone too far with f/16? Or f/10 would be enough?

>I mostly do darker or blue background, do you think that while would be better?

White would be good for that 3D pop effect, but if the figure is white it might get lost in the details. F16 is probably too small an aperture for what you're going for. Try something in between and compare the photos. There's always focus stacking, but it might be too much work with what you've got to work with right now.

As for hiding the holders and excess cloth you can frame it better or just crop them in post. The only figures I have that have those holders are nendoroids and just one or two figmas. Both of which I just try and stand them in place without the holders. I know this is easier with traditional figures since gunpla aren't exactly stable without the holders.

So two routes, either use photoshop tools to get rid of the holder like here. Took 5 seconds, granted its pretty quick but gets my point across. The other route is taking a picture of the background without the model then take a picture and combine the two pictures like in this article https://www.picturecorrect.com/tips/levitation-photography-techniques-for-defying-gravity/ .

I'm not familiar with that lens, but I would probably avoid using the maximum focal length and f stop. Metering mode is most likely irrelevant it seems. You could try using dry ice and water. Though, it seems some lighting tricks might help. https://xlightphotography.com/ways-create-smoke-photography/
>>
>>3421450
For the aperture, just stop it down enough that all the parts of your subject you want in-focus are nice and crispy. For example, for smolgeese there you'll be ok with a wider aperture, since it's relatively compact and uniformly proportioned. But if you take something like Strike Freedom, with shit sticking off of it in every direction, if you want it in focus from the head to the tips of the wings you'll have to go with a smaller aperture since it's a larger slice of 3d space.

Took some pictures during a storm the other day and I'm now trying to fit it with some studio portraits.

Do you think there's something here or should I drop the bodies and just stick with the outdoors stuff?

Your portraits are good but what about the stormy ones made you think they were any good not to mind worth deleting straight away?

Out of all the storm ones I'd say >>3420696
is the best because you did something transformative with it but the rest just remind me of the pictures I took 7 years ago when I went outside at night with my dslr not realising that without a tripod you get shit pictures.

Also your portraits are great don't give up on them

Appreciate the honest criticism guys.
Always pretty much only done nude and portrait so I'm new to landscape, hoping I can extend my range a little with it fitting my other work.

Tomorrow I'll have another chance at taking some night shots during bad weather, will try to bring my tripod this time.

Attached a portrait I took for a different series but endded up not using, I might ditch the arch though and use it for this one.

I'm going to drop a critique because I'm somewhat impressed by your color theory. You seem to loosely obey the rule of thirds. That aside, is blurring your photos the newest fad for artfags like yourself?
>>
these dyptichs do not work on any level. MAYBE a couple work from color contrast alone, but thats some entry level shit. red/blue, purple/yellow, omg so art.

they dont feedback or reference each other, not on a geometric, nor a tonal, nor a narrative level. they are the definition of void. the randomness, or lets call it the mindlessness of all this "work" is too evident, you have nothing to say, you just work and output empty forms waiting for some other empty beings to feel reflected on.

Photographers are a dying breed. Shit like this keeps coming out, doing all the work for you, pretty soon anyone can just go buy a DSLR/Mirrorless and take photos like a pro...

I'm interested in the focus stacking. would this work well with macro? or is it only just "good enough" for basic stuff like landscape.

Yeah it actually works really well with macro photography, it actually is more important in macro because you typically get really shallow depth of field doing macro. So the focus stacking will allow you to have a slightly deeper depth of field. But it is a difficult technique to master, and not all scenes work well with it
>>
>>3421558
well I've done scenes before with 20 images stacked. would it be able to handle something like that or more well? or is it like a 3 image macro stack?

I had an anon earlier ask if I could dump anything else I had from a trip I took last year to Colorado, specifically Pikes Peak. Criticism welcome.

Oh hey, RMNP. Love that spot. I mean you clearly shot this out of a moving car (or couldn't be bothered to literally walk 3 feet forward to get the road out of the frame), and it's underexposed, but hey at least you left Colorado Springs.

It's not that I can't get some good shots, Its that the tourist season is in full swing, and I don't feel like getting run off the road by texas morons, and I'm very busy with a new job. I've been doing long exposure photography of the stars to take advantage of the thinner atmosphere, but its been overcast for over a week now.
My problem is also I don't skii

It was raining I don't have any decent camera rain gear, I didn't even really have a bag and a rubber band. Trying not to ruin my only good camera lol. But yes, for such an amazing spot these photos suck.

Man I will tell you, I had fun on that trip but it was awful. I got hit by a high teenager in a cast in Colorado Springs. I got the ticket because I was out of State, the cop took 5 hours to show up, and when he left he STOLE my license. Took me over a day to get back, and I ended up paying over 5grand out of pocket. On the plus side me and my wife ended up moving out here. I'm glad I got any half presentable shots at all.

What is the thinkpad of >digital cameras?
>>
wtf is a thinkpad
>>
>>3421545
The 5d or whatever the Nikon equivalent of it is
>>
>>3421545
nikon has the red stripe to go along with your thinkpad
the w530 would probably be something on the lines of a d800 because it got the newer command dial but ultimately there are none because they don't respect your freedom, but cameras are tools and fine in the eyes of stallman so there's that.

Lacking motivation to go out and shoot? Want to take photos but don’t know of what? Looking for ways to get better at your craft? Here’s the thread for you!

THIS MONTH’S ASSIGNMENTS
>1) Posed portrait, one single point light source. A desk lamp will do fine, or an isolated lamppost at night if you do street. Background can be completely black, or lighted as you wish.
2) Landscape during blue hour. Optional: include a BIG BLACK rOCK. Or a statue with a big black cock if it's a cityscape.
3) "Light"
4) S-shaped line
OPTIONAL "ONE MONTH? IT LITERALLY TAKES 1/250th x4 SECONDS"-MODE
>Triptychs for all of these assignments

HOW DOES IT WORK
>4 assignments changing every month (LISTED ABOVE) but categorized in 4 recurring themes
>You can try them in any order you like
>Recurring themes are 1) human subject 2) environment 3) abstract concept 4) compositional element
>1) Posed or candid portraits, or taking pictures with humans being a prominent element, like street photography

>single point light

To be fair, it's not that point of a light. On the other hand 3200's first post isn't much single either, so I can sleep peacefully tonight.

This IS an objectively good photo. Not entirely original, not GREAT, but anyone who can't just admit this is a good photo is a salty little faggot who needs to tear down other people in order to feel good.
