How do you achieve this look?

He is Takashi Yasui

Most important step - Gorgeous soft light and a low contrast simple-color scene
Then, add lots of contrast in post
Then, raise the black point a bit.
>>
>>2755877

1) Go to Japan.
2) Live in Japan.
3) Shoot full frame.
4) Apply VSCO generously.

lol
Really is it just a bunch of presets?
How can I do it "manually"

EXIF says it's APS-C

Is it a good camera?
What about the price\quality?
>>
>>2755920
If you buy the camera your photos will start looking like OP I guarantee it :^)
>>
>>2755920
It's a very good camera if it's the right camera for your needs. Potential for fantastic lenses if you can afford them. For instance, the f/1.2 lens referenced here
>>2755903
is the $1000 56mm f/1.2.

No, serious question, is it a good camera?

Thanks, so you don't recommend it to a (not entirely) beginner, right?
>>
>>2755949
Well if you're a beginner with enough money to afford it, I very much suggest it. Even the kit lens that comes with it is excellent. And there are inexpensive lenses that you can use with it that aren't terrible. If I were just starting out today, I would probably want an X-T1 or X-T10. But if you only have $600 to spend, you may want to look elsewhere.
>>
>>2755881
>3) Shoot full frame.

he fell for the full frame jew
>>
>>2755951
what do you suggest for a lower range of price, for example 600$ as you said
>>

>>2755877
there's definitely selective coloring here. he's selecting for a lot of the oranges and blacks and getting rid of a lot of the other colors.

This is Arashiyama in Kyoto. It's packed full with people even if you go there early in the morning. If you go too early, of course, it's just dark. I have no idea what you have to do to take this shot. Heal out all the people?
>>
>>2756216

Looks like a long exposure, which erases moving objects very readily. That's like, basic photo tip #12.

Of course, he's also Japanese, so maybe he just knows a time to go when there ISN'T a lot of people.
>>
>>2756219
I guess it's the former, since there are always people there. Some places are just never empty in Kyoto. You can go up its most famous mountain in complete dark and there will be someone hiking down the trail shouting "good morning" at you.
>>
>>2755972
If you're talking usd I believe the Sony a6000 is about $500 (body only) I'd personally recommend that. One thing is the kit lens is supposed to be pretty shitty from what I've heard so I'd recommend looking at getting the body only and dropping a bit more cash on a better lens
>>
>>2756216
I got a picture of that with noone in the frame its pretty easy.
>>
>>2756234
i've tried 2 of the kit lens.
1 is pretty sharp at, the other is not as sharp.
so you're getting a crapshoot with the kit lens.
the distortion are all fixed in post.
you would be a fool to pass on the kit lens for so little money.

DONE. EZ. What's so hard to understand? I once thought it was impossible to get a 1m+ exposure of my street, turns out all it took was a bit of patience.
>>
>>2755946
yes it really is. Consider waiting a few months to buy Fuji cameras as they are releasing new cameras this year with even noicer new sensors

If you dont want to wait, at least look at the x-T1 before you settle for an X-T10

>a6000

Is this a meme?

An x-pro 1 is $500 these days and doesn't come with a dead mount.

Camera fight.
GO!

you've got to be kidding me that the lens he's using is a grand.

>>2755970
this you're kidding yourself if you expect significantly better photos from full frame.

>>2756552
that's actually interesting an interesting comparison. It's nice actually to find a site where it lays out specs in an easy to read format.
>>

>you've got to be kidding me that the lens he's using is a grand.
I am not kidding you. Why would I "got to be kidding you"?
>>

>>2755972

If you're buying a camera because of how someones pictures look using that camera, you're retarded. These images can be taken with any comparable camera from any brand, all they require is a comparable lens, and some heavy post-processing work. Camera isn't really gonna make a bit of difference in this case.

Hell, outside the shallow DoF ones (blurry background), they could all be done with just a simple point and shoot.

If I take a picture of a Liverpool taxi on a Liverpool street, does it look as exotic to people from the other side of the world?
>>
>>2756550
what FE lenses?
