You're going to be holding the camera or putting it on the board. If you want to see any of the surrounding environment, you need a fisheye.

160px is not a heckin lot to play with. I prefer to get it done in camera as much as the next guy, but I am not sure I can get behind the sentiment here. 24MP seems like an absolute bare minimum for any serious modern work. Print, web, whatever.

99% of clients put the photos onto their facebooks and thats it. Maybe a small print. You don’t NEED more than 12 MP

Y'all finally got a brighter tilt screen, built-in ND filters, a viewfinder and better battery life. But would any of you actually buy this thing for $2495 instead of picking up a regular Pocket 6K, now that they're on sale for $1799?

The other one is just a link, this one actually has a point,

I bought a canon 5d mk4 and a 35mm but all my pictures pretty much look shitty no matter how much tweaking I do to the settings. What am I doing wrong? Also, thanks in advance.

Care to be a little more specific? Post examples with full EXIF for moar help. Taht photo you posted isn't terrible.
There are two ways a photo can shitty: bad IQ or bad composition. Most people will forgive poor-ish IQ for great composition (especially for grungy shots). Bad composition can't really be saved by great IQ tho.

Ken Rockwell said it best, the only gear that matters is the lighting gear. You can have the best camera ever created and if your lighting sucks your photo will suck.

Instagram rate thread! Have these things been banned or why isn't there one in the catalog?

Anyway, to kick off the thread, I propose we do things a little differently:
Each anon not only rates the others' profiles, but also recommends one indoor shooting idea and one for outdoor, based on the shooter's style.

Don't be a willy - If you want feedback, you need to provide 3 positives and 3 negatives about profiles previously posted. I'll follow this rule as soon as there's replies.

Bear in mind: if you use IG for anything else other than networking and having an easily accessible (albeit compressed to shit) portfolio, you're ngmi. Most of the mainstream instagram aesthetic is for vapid teens with self-image problems and McKinnon-type influencers that want to sell you their presets meant for overcooking. I'd be more than willing to be proven otherwise tho, share profiles you like as well, if you've got any.

If you're in a cemetery go to pray for their souls, go to respect the dead, and not to mine their grave site for cool photos to post on /p/ and your social media feed.

>>3826220
make your damn peace with the fact that necrophotography is at its best cheesy and at its worst sacrilegious.
You're not koudelka, your highest aspiration is to get likes/followers on ig with your shots and there's nothing wrong with that but quit larping with them *muh father's restoration* excuses

>>3826243
wew lad don't get them catholic panties in a twist.
one of the most common exercises in photography courses used to be the graveyard field trip where amateurs could practice on angles of fixed subjects with an easy but direct narrative behind them.
The dead don't rest nor give two shits about your ethics, it's up to the specific cemetery regulations and most of them are fine with it if you're respectful.
We can all agree that it's shitty photography but as long as you're not a sperg who takes selfies of himself twerking on the tombstone it's not all that different from monument shots.

Currently I have no workflow, I just take pictures and that's how they forever remain. I want to start cropping, rotating, scaling, and exporting images for web - no interest in playing with levels or colors. What is the absolute easiest way to do this? Free preferably. Ideally something less cumbersome than gimp.
>>
Probably FastStone.
I use it to view large folders because I hate the thumbnail lag present in windows ever since Vista came out but it has basic editing features.
>>
>>3827626
Just try not to do it. Workflow is the most boring part of photography anyway. Learn to use your bracket exposure settings and set up your camera to do JPGs at the medium size settings so they're ready for web.

Alright bros let’s see your kit.

I just bought the Fuji XF 35mm f/1.4 and I've taken it out twice so far so I'll post my favourite photos here. I initially bought my XT-3 with a zoom lens, and I had forgotten the magic of prime lenses. I'm really enjoying the 35mm lens on my crop sensor! Feel free to comment, critique, wormpost, and post your own photos. I'm feeling inspired.

>$500 sack
How many wide-angle lenses is he carrying around, exactly? Is he taking every lens on every trip? I am not a landscape photographer, but he made it sound like he took three lenses. Why do three lenses and a body necessitate a $500 bag? And I don't even know what tripod he is buying that costs $500. Some carbon Gitzo or something, I guess. I hope that includes the head. It's a good window into the mind of the landscape photographer youtuber anyways.

the stills function is just a frame grab with no real control over shutter speed (always dependant on project framerate, can't be longer than 360°), no possibilities to review or delete pictures unless you put the card into a computer
pracitally unusable for stills
