>the small battery has really helped me to not overshoot and really think about the shotWhat are some more photographer copes?
>i dont need AF because i plan my shots out>i dont need battery life because i dont spray and pray>i don’t need digital because i get it right in camera every single time you dont need moreAnd then his portfolio is a year of repeats, different takes of the same dull subject matter…PetsPedestriansPolesPlantsTechnological and financial misfortune never made anyone better. They simply never stopped talented people from being good.Don’t join a cargo cult. Gear has zero correlation with talent.
Photography is a cope.
>>4156326>film is a better format because it made you to slow down and think about your subject Filmfags are both coping and gatekeeping at how their "hobby" being democratized
I always "overshoot" if I find a subject I really like. The best photo almost always ends up being one of the ones I didnt expect
>this piece of gear will make my pictures better
>>4157191it does!it will make your pictures better!it won't make your art better but you're not an artist are you
>>4157192To me the quality of a picture is not dependent on its technical perfection, my work doesn't make any sense and doesn't make any money. I think I would qualify as an artist.
>>4157194Is it pictures or works?Is it art or photography?There's a difference. Mind you, artists normally make some money. Fun is what they have when they can't have success.
>>4156936I will or will not, but Il'l laboriously work out the perspective in certain places that got my interest, and that has given me great shots. Still, to some extent I envy the high level that a friend achieves with snapping away -> spontaneous and natural situations, sometimes great situations he managed to anticipate and capture.Some shots can't be composed with time and some shots don't even require good composition.
>>4156936Most good photographers, even ansel adams, were not stingy with film and had a lot of low grade throaway stuff and just random touristy snapshits that were never made for arts sake.Some people try way too hard like it'll make them more talented.
>>4156332>i dont need AF because i plan my shots outthats the one thing wrong with your post. this is YOUR cope.>AF99% of actual photographers dont use AF whatsoever (not talking about blue collar and/or youtube tier wedding/sports/event ''photographers'' aka. glorified snapshot takers with real cameras.) hell, blue collar glorified snapshitters aside, even most wildlife photographers dont use AF unless they really have to[EXIF data available.

I can't take a big camera in public. Noooo everyone will notice. I need to buy a fujicoh. Until then, I can't shoot street.Everyone still notices your goofy creepy ass.
>>4157297Your models are almost as hurt as your edits lol.
>>4157297Really? I rather know only hobbyists and blue collar photographers and all of em use auto focus except for certain situations e.g. macro. Some of them, the elderly, started focusing manually. I mean, your shot has a very wide dof, was shot in bright light. Still, I would've used AF for it. What's your background?
>>4157312I don’t think anyone is larping with shots this bad.
>>4157297If you never ever leave your haughty bubble and have fun with other stuff that’s actually less respectable than being an amateur. It’s being a rich amateur who thinks you ought not drive a car unless it’s at the races, else ride a bicycle. What a tryhard.
>I don't need the latest camera to take good pictures.>My gear doesn't allow me to take good pictures.
>>4156326>if i'm technically good at photography I"ll become successful
>>4156326>monitor calibration will make my photos look better
god everyone in this thread is retardedjust go shoot and have fun, fuck what the people on this board think, especially cinefag
>>4157403>I don't care what people think or my photos look like, I"m just having havelol, that's the biggest cope of them all
>>4157406you're just having have, cheif?
