'Sup /p/, i found my dad's reflex with a film in and made some photos while knowing nothing of photography. what do you think? Are they at least a bit artsy/interesting or it's just shit?
Yeah, I got a sweet camera for 20$ and I was ignorant as to what made a picture "good". So I took rolls and rolls of film, producing mostly shit, especially with a 50mm kit lens. Then when I got my 28mm, a whole new world opened up, and I did some reading and talking to actual photographers.
I see. Same here, picked up my first DSLR in 2014, but did a lot of reading since then and shot a lot.. bought and sold several cameras since then until I found a setup I enjoy.
Wish I didn't read on composition and such though as my opinion right now is that you learn to apply all this stuff just to break it when necessary. Usually you know when something is pleasing to the eye the moment you see it and the rules you learn are just the "mathematical" underlying structure of a concept we all know about subconsciously.
This. Sunny 16 should be a last resort.
Yeah it's good to understand light but
>shooting at f/16 just because its bright
>not using a light meter to get aperture and ss that you want for final results
Understanding sunny 16 is good but its fucking stupid to limit yourself to this ancient meme and risk getting shit reaults in a time when literally anyone can download a lightmeter into their phone
You have that really ugly pole in the middle of your photo, what do you think? I like your 3rd one of the girl though. Your second one is garbage. But it does look like garbage some famous photographer will try to sell to a gallery for thousands of dollars so what do I know.
