my friend. back when we were kids he used to randomly show up with a disposable camera when we would hangout on summer afternoons or weekends and take shots that are just so precious to have now, 20 years later.

he doesn't even own a camera and never did. it was a good 10 years before i bought a camera and started getting serious and documenting everything with high quality shots, long exposures, etc etc, which has amounted to absolute yyyyears of thousands of precious photos but he's the one who unwittingly started it all

I don't have a favorite photographer. I have favorite cinematographers though. I will never make films but I can at least take photographs

Hi /p/ee. So how long have you been into this hobby? What inspired you to take up photography? Where do you want to go with it — if career wise, what sort of job would you like to do?

Your pictures are misleading. First off, the separation between the subject and the background is provided by the distance between the subject and the background. If the distance between the subject and the background were decreased, then the difference between the apertures would be more noticeable.

Also, no information on the focal lengths between pictures are given and judging by details in the out of focus background, particularly the small light square to the right of the camera just by the strap hook, each picture is taken at different focal lengths. You can clearly see lens compression at work by the small light square's position in relation to the strap hook. As focal length increases, depth of field decreases and so narrower apertures at longer focal lengths can produce similar results as wider apertures at wider focal lengths.

In short, this is a misleading conclusion. I am a noob. I've only been into photography for a couple of months so if anyone can correct me on anything, I'd appreciate it. Always want to learn. Thanks.

get closer, shoot at high aperture bump up the ISO to highest tolerable settings, shoot everything that moves

What image resolution encroaches on overkill, assuming the lens out-resolves the sensor? Does the reciprocal rule still hold up at higher megapixels?

I said no homo. That was a totally platonic sunset with my m8.

When will the film market crash?
I'm sick of every camera going up in prices and reaching thousands of dollars. I'm sick of paying double digits for rolls of film.
Will we just have to wait it out until it's not popular anymore, or can the crash be forced?

Just don't buy some Youtube meme camera. I got picrel for 40 Bucks.
And what's the point of an expensive film camera anyways?
The emulsion takes the photo, the camera is just a lens holder. In my mind, as long as you can change the lens and exposure, the camera did it's job.
I'll agree on the price for rolls, but cameras aren't really the problem.

The problem is the price point. Sure, you could make a functional camera which takes OK quality photos. People have, just look at the Ilford ones. They're only a step up from disposables though.

Once you're into the region of decent feature-rich SLRs though? The second hand market is still way cheaper than what you'd be able to develop and manufacture one for. Remember that it's a niche market too, you'll not be able to recoupe development costs by selling millions of units like back when film was still popular.

It will probably happen at some point in the future, second hand cameras are only getting older and good luck finding replacement parts for them.

My pops got his Zenit for free, yes. But then again he did work in internal affairs back then so you might be on to something. The cameras became popular with foreigners much later on.

It's still in their attic, the used market here is flooded with a million of them. They mostly work, true tanks, but everything is horrible about them.

Sorry for the gearfag intrusion, as silly as it sounds. When you are looking for gear to buy, are you more interested in the product that has all of the original packaging and such (box, manual, warranty cards, etc...) or without?

I've been interested in picking up a lens, but am kind of a stickler when it comes to having the OE packaging in it to ensure that it has been taken care of subjectively. I don't like talking about gear, but I want to hear people's experiences and inputs about buying from someone who has kept all their packaging, versus without, and is it worth the extra bucks to get a clean example.

Cheers.

I don’t feel like there’s a clear subject, it’s very blurry.

>>4031523
I feel like this subject would be boring in daylight, but in the second picture, the fact that the darkness obscures the row of houses (i think?) kinda makes it look like a train. The composition of 1. doesn't have the same vibe because you can't see enough of the row of houses.

Technically though, it's very blurry, hard to make out your subject.

I wish to get a small flash to achieve a harsh P&S look, meaning it has to be close to the lens axis. There's no need for variable power, just looking for something that will balance well on my dinky OM-4Ti. The unomat in picrel was my choice but I've yet to come across one for sale.

One of those things is a practical, well designed system that can easily be carried everywhere, everyday, takes surprisingly good pictures and easily lets you switch between lenses designed for useful focal lengths.
