The boat isn't inherently interesting. It's a view anyone could get just by walking by. You need create something visually interesting or tell a story
>>
>>3917525
everything in focus kind of takes away from the main point of the pic

Thoroughly underwhelming, it's well framed if that's any consolation. If what you are going for is the documentation of said boat, then you did a good job. If, on the other hand, your intent is artistically driven, you have failed imo. What about the scene speaks to you, that you then wish to convey? Could you have found a more dynamic angle? Do the row of upturned boats along the bottom of the frame add anything?

The pole is kind of distracting

I need tips on street photography, I like this pic I took but rich vs poor is kind of a cliche. I didn't even notice the guys on the ground until after I snapped :\

Posted in other thread too

Street photography can be really hard to do well. The woman on the bike is alright for a subject but the shit on the left side of the frame is distracting and the overall composition isn’t really interesting or motivated in my opinion. If you want to take creepshots of people from far away and isolate the subject better, I’d recommend a telephoto lens. If I were to do street photos I would probably set up a scene with a wide angle and just wait for people to walk into the shot, find people to stand in the shot, or just set up a tripod and take pictures of myself. The best thing to do though is just keep shooting, maybe you’ll become confident enough to interact with strangers which will greatly improve how the photos come out, but I know I don’t like doing that too much since it can be nerve racking

>>3918014
I usually don't like pics of homeless people but this pic seems to be making a point other than just "oh dear lord homeless people" that I see mostly, where the homeless is the main subject. Here the main subject seems to be the woman and the macy's sign, with the homeless as a detail
>>
>>3918014
i don't like it the composition is just meh
no good subject either not sure if wide angle

>>3917996
boring and looks like you're a creeper

>>3917525
Composition feels too forced, too much clutter from parked car on sides and main boat is crowded in by smaller boards

For me this photo is ruined by the bush on the right. If it were just the bird / light / moon it would have made for a nice minimal photo.

Hmm now I wish the spotlight on the left wasn't cropped. Makes me want to combine the two pics. This one is better thought.
>>
>>3917525
I'd worked around a bit more with this photo, even in camera, it seems flat, and kinda dull because the white balance. the composition is good. I like how tight it is to the frame, and how messy the other boats are to the ship. it is indeed one of the best pics I've seem a while posted here.

good op
>>
>>3918535
it's probably easier for me because I live in DC, it's a friendly city.
My tips would be:
smile
take your time taking the photo
Look for interesting subjects
If they ask you to delete, don't make it a big deal
Warm up by asking to take pictues of people's dogs/pets it takes the nerves away.
>>
>>3918535
The Ricoh GR III with snap focus is great for this. I used it in >>3918014 people don't notice it or if they do notice they just think you're a dumb tourist using a boring grey camera. The focal length is very wide though you have to get close to your subjects for good results. Like ~5m.

The other thing you can try is the hunter vs fisherman approach to street photography. Find somewhere interesting to do photography then let someone walk into your frame and take their photo then. It's more passive. People will mistakenly think that they walked into your frame on accident and not that you're some aggressive photographer.

>overcooking
Subjective at some point, some edits are blatantly obvious even if done softly and some others are great despite being almost a new image.
Also falls into the sensibilities of some others, many people find fixed verticals/keystone/shifted images to be overcooking.
Your images are okay if a bit trivial, your composition/creativity is more of a factor than the cooking process, so keep going IMO.
Third one is my choice.

>>
>>3918758
> f/8, 1/3200, ISO 2500
bro you should probably drop out of Manual mode until you know what you're doing. there's no reason for this to be shot at that high a shutter speed and ISO. you could change your shutter speed to 1/125 and drop down to ISO 100 and get the same photo with more dynamic range and less noise. stay in aperture priority.
>>
>>3918981
High iso adds subtle noise that looks different (and better) than lightroom grain
>>
>>3918984
>Shooting high ISO for grain
beeg pp move, but still that grain is not that appealing when close, may i suggest you DXO's Analog FX? even Capture One's grain module is a bit better than that.

this, thank you for posting this anon

not good, just looks like a tourist sanp, you have a person cut halfway at hte bottom and there's nothing impressive about the scene except the bridge itself, but you could have taken a much better picture waiting 5 seconds later for the people /truck to pass

>>3918758
much better composition. Too bad the lighting isn't good. Looks like you tried to salvage the pic in post, but sometimes you just can't save poor lighting.

>>3918981
>>3918984
shooting for grain to salvage poor lighting is just cope, go back and reshoot in proper lighting. It's like people who shoot B&W because they think it will automatically make a photo more "artsy", but it just makes it look tacky
>>
>>3918877
instagrammable and nice idea (sitting at hte corner and waiting for someone to pass), but the actual execution too cluttered to be portfolio worthy.
This is the kind of photo you see when someone watches a couple videos and says "hey i think this is a good spot to try out that technique that video said", and they try to "force" a composition even when one doesn't quite work out.
In this case, the construction boards and pillars are too cramped and don't have a good figure/ground relationship with the subject window.

>>3918878
meh there's nothing really going on here. there's really no subject.

>>3918879
doesn't fit with your other photos. If you had a series of abstracts it might work, but otherwise it looks odd as a standalone, almost like an afterthought.
Again, this seems like the type of photo where you saw someone else's similar picture, and thought "I should be able to take a picture like that"

Overall you seem to have a lack of focus.
I've said this before to other people: overall it seems like you're taking photos because you think it's something that other people would take a photo of. Like you've seen an "artsier" version of that picture before and you think you ought to be able to take one yourself

stop overthinking it and just take photos of what naturally stands out to you, and set the camera down and delete the ones that don't. Trust me, if you can teach yourself to self-curate, your photography will dramatically improve.
>>
>>3919003
>shooting for grain to salvage poor lighting is just cope
It's not cope, I like how it looks, not everything has to be clinically sharp and grain/noise free all the time. I understand gearfags might be confused by this because the performance is not optimal or whatever
>>
>>3918877
hi ken
>>
>>3919007
Not that guy but his comment was ultimately about the quality of the light, not just the fact that it's grainy. By all means a picture shot in low light hand held with some noise can be fine, but shooting high ISO mid day just looks like a distracting rookie mistake.
>>
>>3919007
Also, imagine getting this defensive over getting critique in a thread specifically made for critique.
>>
I may have posted this a while back, but never asked for criticism. Any thoughts?

I had my camera for like 2 weeks at this point and I was scared of my shots coming out blurry after one day i was shooting at a shutter speed of 1/4s the whole time. I agree with the rookie mistake part of it but I wish I could see grain a bit better on the back screen of my camera. So far the rules I keep by is 1/(focal length) for shutter speed (unless I want some stylistic efforts), and then keeping my ISO under 1000, like to hover around 640 though. Is there anything else i'm missing?
>>
>>3919144
Noise is not a valid critique to be fair, film getting a pass but digital getting slammed seems arbitrary.
>>
>>3918880
thanks for the feedback. it seems a recurring comment is lack of focus/nothing that really catches attention, so I'll keep it in mind.

>>3918889
fair, thanks for raising that point.

>>3919004
I don't watch youtube photogs' videos and the way you worded things were a bit strange, but you're spot on overall. I'm not taking photos of what I think other people would take, but I think I am subconsciously (poorly) attempting to imitate the work of photogs that I really admire. I associate overthinking with too much self-curation which leads to me being pretty indiscriminate when shooting. I should probably start trying to find the balance. If you don't mind me asking, how would you define focus? Actively ignoring the urge to take certain shots that would stray away from a theme? A general consistency of style? I think I've just gotten out of the basics basics so thank you, your feedback is very much appreciated anon

nah but when OP deliberately tries to increase noise to salvage a scene with poor lighting, that is no different from snapshitters trying black & white or heavy vignette or VSCO filters or selective coloring or any other bullshit gimmick to salvage an image with poor lighting.

The point is OP wanted critique on his photo, and he got critiqued for her poor choice in techniques. Don't worry, we've all gone through that phase before, no need to get so upset anon

>>3919141
>but shooting high ISO mid day just looks like a distracting rookie mistake.
not even a rookie mistake, it looks like deliberate cope in an attempt to salvage a photo with bad lighting.
>>
>>3918757
Too messy, nothing to really focus on. The dude in the bottom of the frame and the truck getting cropped off in the photo is really awkward. I do like the post-processing, but it's like putting lipstick on a pig with this photo. And cranking up the post-processing can often distract you from being more critical of your composition.

>>3919007
Personally, if you like grain, I would do this all with post-processing. There's a bunch of plugins and tools that you can use if you don't like lightroom's grain. Imo, I think the noise added from shooting at high ISO doesn't look appealing, but hey, you do you.
>>
>>3919162
read this page https://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/camera-shutter-speed.htm and absorb the information. you will learn a lot about shutter speed.
if you want a grain effect, do it in post. if you don't like the way lightroom does it, find other software that does it better. don't do it by boosting the ISO because you reduce the depth of colors, detail, and dynamic range of your photos by doing so. it's the worst way to do it.
>>
>>3919310
lol this is what I saw too
>>
>>3919211
>Film getting a pass
If it's any consolation I don't tend to give film a "pass", and film grain was not as desired back then by pros using it as it is today with enthusiasts that fetishize it. In general a well lit scene with proper exposure values won't have high levels of noise or grain. The shots that did were pretty much all photojurnalistic shots in which they did their absolute best to optimize settings and grain was unavoidable at times. If any of those people back then could have a low light monster that have clean shots at four and five digit ISO values, they would.
>>
>>3919391
I guess you are right, i remember reading old mags with reader's letters and comments always discussing or wanting to know the smoothest film rolls out there

Blew out the highlights, but he was hiding under a bush so not much I could do
Probably a bit overcooked, but I like it
Colors are accurate, I actually was able to go back outside to look at him while messing with them. Surprised how much blue he reflects

Clean your scanner.

Also, why? Not trying to be rude but what was your purpose of taking this photo? What I mean to ask is what was your intent? It doesn't have clear purpose and even aesthetically it's pretty weak. Your dev needs work too, since that isn't a ray of light. This is a good learning piece and stepping stone towards better work since there's a lot of lessons to learn from jsut one photo.

>Complete beginner here.
Then it's appropriate to bug you with composition before you fall into the gearfag hole.

That pic seems to have an idea but you went a bit wide for a stronger effect, at least if the idea i have in mind was similar to yours. I half-ass used a golden ratio proportion to start comp with the left-side trees to respect that you may have wanted less of it than the right side, both serve as framing for the picture which is the lake and the background tress.
You also crooked the horizon, some cameras have guide lines so don't forget to check it constantly IF you want straight horizons, obviously it will depend on your idea. Also i think there was too much foreground with the grass, i guess it serves to give an element of eye rest (which in a grassy surface translates a notion of peace) but also functions as another framing element which makes for a 3-sided one that directions the view to the dead center and upper-center, still i cut lots of it but without changing your original aspect ratio of 4:3, i think i would've liked more a 3:2 to cut even more but i rather stick with your camera's ratio; i placed a thin gray line to represent where the lower border would've been with such a crop.
And that's it, i think this was your original idea? if not then i projected a lot. If it was then it's just a few tips to maximize your idea, photography is a subtractive medium.

Bother, it was originally in 3:2, i guess i got confused when i cropped with a premade ratio in Ps.
Still, you get the idea with the grey line there.

>>3935704
>>3935705
In these two the idea is a bit more ambiguous, i would have to project a bit more to get them.
Second one i think you wanted to do a pseudo one-point perspective with the tree as horizon while also maintaining a foreground element with the pond of light there. This one is a bit trickier because having both in prominent form probably needed the shot to be done in a significantly lower height to make the main lines, represented by the path's limits, more dramatic thus in point with the perspective while also making the lens closer to the foreground light hence including them in the shot.
Also hard not to blow the highlights in such place, i think that snoy camera can do exposure bracketing pretty decently because it has pretty fast FPS so don't be afraid for the HDR meme in such conditions, it was originally meant for those. You only need 3 shots for it to be decent, the RX100III can do 10 i think so you only need to hold your breath and stick the camera to your face for a third of a second.
I tried to take some highlights down and put a thin grey limit on a ratio that would maximize the lines more, the 16:10 golden, as you can see i had to cut the pond but in a lower position you could probably pull it out altogether.

>>3935705
This one is tougher because the idea is not clear enough but that's why i like it, it had potential for both a deutsch angle and a normal portrait scene. While the image works both with a straight horizon and not, i decided for the latter due to the original image wildly missing the horizon thus probably your feeling was for it.
Because these kind of compositions are usually ambiguous, i decided to trace a line from the upper right corner, passing through the sun and fixing the lower left corner where said line ended, that was my bias to angle it. This kind of skewing is usually done to cause mystery, disorientation, unsettling atmosphere and so on, so i decided to play with the shadows from the trees to make them more of a silhouette kind of deal but kept the harsh lighting to make the shining leaves as a counterpoint.
This positioning along with the prominent bright spots from the leaves serving as visual guidelines makes the image somewhat look like a swirling shot, quite surreal if we add that the seeming horizon is also in a very low position which confuses a bit and makes the trees look like being legit bent if the picture is gazed very briefly. It's controversial composing but that's part of the idea behind old day expressionism.

Wrong, but still the process of starting to think more about it was my main point to him
>ugly colors
They are SOOC, blame Sony which is a gear problem anyways
>hazy
Gear problems, also it doesn't affect the images' concept
>unsharp
Wrong
>absolute trash lighting
Wrong, any light is decent if you know what to do or how to compose with it

Just because you say something is wrong doesn't make it so, it is especially embarrassing when there is concrete evidence of the contrary. I suggest you lurk more.

>it is especially embarrassing when there is concrete evidence
Where? the subjects are there, the composition attempts are there, the necessary sharpness to interpret the objects is there and the lighting is there too although user error made the exposition of the second one be burned out.
I suggest you calibrate your monitor, learn the definition of photography and check out its different genres and uses.

>If you want to take creepshots of people from far away and isolate the subject better, I’d recommend a telephoto lens.
these types of shots look like complete shit 100% of the time prove me wrong. every street photography collection ive ever seen is taken at a standard or wide focal length. a long lens really limits where you can stand

>>3918022
>The best thing to do though is just keep shooting, maybe you’ll become confident enough to interact with strangers which will greatly improve how the photos come out, but I know I don’t like doing that too much since it can be nerve racking
yes. if you're shooting photos of people, you need this. everyone has their own style, but all should acknowledge that what they are doing is taking something from random strangers. i tend to just do it, and then smile and nod afterwards if they see me. usually i get a laugh or a return smile. if you've got massive social anxiety, you will need to get over it because your nerves/fear looks a lot like anger/hatred/fat to someone who doesn't know better

Straighten the horizon and convert it to B&W. Composition is also a matter of color contrast. Blue sky/background/foreground, so skip it to monochrome.

the waves look nice, but you can improve your photos with some deliberate changes

> composition
too much water. the subject is unclear, is it the couple? the sun? the waves? (you probably don't know either). pick something, then rule of thirds. if you showed me the top half without the sun, I would just tell you it's a picture of carpet.

did you take the picture from higher up? get lower to center the water "rectangle" and horizon in your frame

> lens
200mm is not good for this shot. 70mm+ is great for portraits, i imagine you used this lens because you were already taking those shots and it was convenient. it's likely why you couldnt line up the shot right. environmental shots fare much better <70mm

wider angle lens, framing the couple in the left third and looking at the horizon is much more interesting composition

> camera settings
2000 ISO is way too high, you have plenty of light to work with, so you're just losing color information. set your iso first, 100-800 here

shutter priority here is a mistake, you arent capturing specific motion. when light is abundant, like in outdoor shots, you should be in aperture priority to control depth of field. but doing that here would just highlight the composition problems

if the intent is silhouette, you should look for an exposure that makes the couple/beach completely black. color information in the foreground is unnecessary to the viewer

spend 30 minutes learning the exposure triangle and you'll improve drastically

> post
horizon isn't flat, you should fix that in lightroom.
>>
>>3942389
composition wise, left frame feels balanced. then that crooked pole sets the tone for the messy right frame.

ISO too high. lower than and youll get access to bigger apertures and more depth of field
