Bought a canon PowerShot sx520hs used like new for $100, completely green to photography, but wanted something a step above my phone for photography when hiking.

Thoughts on it? Any good resources on learning not to suck?

>lol no, that Canon is like 1000mm equivalent. If there's one thing bridge cameras rule at it's reach.
Skipped English in HS? That's exactly what anon said. It gets reach, but quality is shit. Useless stabilization and lousy lens. Everything gets blurry and useless.
>>
>>4080416
I was falling asleep then. Quality isn't that bad if not as good as a system camera.
>>4080292
IQ of a Sigma ART zoom has nothing to envy from a plastic fantastic. Portability is already compromised with a system camera. Price is the big one, about 8x.
>>
>>4080258
you can't frame, and it hinders your growth as a photographer.
>>
Ignore these bozos, I started on a Canon powershot older than that one and turned out mostly fine. Super portable and you can play around with different focal lengths.
Once you are comfortable with the basics of operating your camera and want to add another layer of complexity, look up CHDK. Its a custom software some nerds made for Canon point and shoots to give you more control, and most importantly IMO, the ability to shoot RAW.

Tips for taking pictures of insects?

It's been over 10 years since I've done it.
Maybe someone with experience can weigh in?
I would set my focal length and then move my body forward and backward to get the focus sharp. Is this a stupid idea? What are good ways to focus easily on a small moving creature? Using autofocus doesn't seem good.
I'm using a 50mm and 85mm prime attached to extension tubes. Is this why I have such depth of field problems? How much better is a dedicated macro lens in terms of depth of field?
Is it cringe to bring a flash attached with a cable and hold it off to the side or something? Or have a reflector dropped down infront of my body or something? What is the best non-cringe lighting situation?

I live in Colorado. I just did some googling, and it looks like a permit is usually required if you've been hired to take pictures. I'm going to be taking pictures for use in a commercial product, but I'm doing it entirely on my own, so no one has hired me.

Never before has photography been more accessible than now. And yet, it seems like it's never been more stale. Is it a SNR problem? Or is talent really extinct? I like to think it's just SNR, talent being drowned in the flood of garbage. Like the eternal summer, but for photography.

On second look my dumb ass realized that is not the golden gate. My other comment still remains though.

So I'm texting a chick and I bring up photography. She says she doesn't take photos much because she can't ever make the camera see what she sees. As if that's the sole purpose of photography- to capture exactly what you see? Seriously what?

But in the OP you're complaining not about her giving up on photography but on what she would like to do about photography. And you're doing nothing but complaining about it, not offering any solutions or understanding or anything
>>
>>4077406
I didn't argue with her. I'm arguing with you guys instead.
Also I never said she shouldn't use her camera. I'm just saying she shouldn't be so quick to dismiss photography because she can't get the pictures to be like a reflection of what she sees.

Like I said there's a compromise when it comes to cameras. Trying to achieve perfection can be an impossible bar especially as a novice. Also what makes photos great isn't necessarily how accurately they match your eyes. Photography really is not about turning your sight into a picture. You can't even pin photography to one purpose. So when she suggests that there's just one point to it and it just happens to be the thing she struggles with the most makes it sound like a dumb fucking excuse.
You guys are bending over backwards to defend her dumb fucking logic.
>>
>>4077409
>you're complaining not about her giving up on photography but on what she would like to do about photography

She doesn't want to do anything with photography. She's acting like she tried but it's just not good enough. The camera doesn't see what she sees. It's the cameras fault, not her fault.

>woman is retarded

>>4077361
its extremely frustrating to want to capture the feeling of a moment and not be able to because the device you have isn't capable of it, despite promising that ability.

cameras cant smell or taste or fell a breeze or the sun on your skin, and so you're already at a severe disadvantage if you're trying to capture a moment. Tge camera can only see, it can only see some of what you're seeing, and it can only see it in 2 dimensions.

Its even more bitter when you've, thru pure chance, accidentally managed to capture a moments feeling and can't intentionally repeat the results.


I often find that to get the feeling of a particular moment I have to work really hard to accurately remember it and then also to add to the photo in post some of the aspects that its missing.

As a viewer going in blind, I really like the tension between the pose and the huge dark void under her upper body

Fame is mostly a function of who you know and when you worked, not of the quality of your work, and certainly not of any presumed validity of it.
>what makes this shot so good
The subject is clear and there's just enough context provided in the frame for the people who would care to invent whatever story they want about it. It sits right on that perfect line of explicit depiction and freedom for implicit meaning for basically anyone to invent their own reason why it's good.
Does that mean it's the best? I don't know very much about nude photography, so I couldn't tell you what is or isn't the objective best nude photography. Seems to me to mostly be about encroaching on the profane, which makes sense why so many nude artists want to take pictures of children. If that's accurate, is this picture profane? To me, no, but I've also been watching women get their holes literally fisted, sometimes quite violently, since I was a 14 year-old downloading porn from the internet, so maybe within the context of the time it was made it is more meaningful.

Cameras you need to own at least two because of how good they are

>Sigma SD14. I picked up the second one as a "for parts" spare parts body for my main, but the only thing wrong with it was a missing IR filter for the sensor, so now I have an IR-dedicated camera.
How much was it?

75 federal reserve inflation units.

holy shit, nice anon
I've always wanted an SD1 myself but can't afford it, would take one like yours for that money in a heartbeat nevertheless
nice haul

>>4081139
Yeah, I all but threw my wallet at the screen when I saw that range. You can snag decent SD14s with lenses for sub 300 usually which as far as foveon goes a really good deal.

I will have an SD1 Merrill someday, around the time that I can afford the SA mount art series glass to go with it.

I have the F and F2. Can confirm F is the better camera. F2 has a horrible, clattering shutter.
