There is now no need to spend 1000's on that wide aperture for great bokeh. The new s8 can do that all for you. And if Im being honest do a much better job in the editing process.

Mobile phones are the way forward and i predict in a few years will be competing with/ surpassing mid range DSLRs

Check the video for proof.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as bokeh, is in fact, depth of field, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, depth of field plus bokeh. Bokeh is not a photographic look unto itself, but rather another component of a look made by the lens design, numerical aperture and focal length comprising a full picture.
Many photographers make pictures with depth of field every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, this look which is widely used today is often called “bokeh”, and many photographers are not aware that it is basically the depth of field, caused by the wide aperture. There really is bokeh, and there are photographers using it, but it is just a part of the image they make.
Bokeh is the quality of the depth of field: the specific way an optical formula renders out of focus areas. Bokeh is an essential part of a photograph, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete composition. Bokeh is normally used in combination with the depth of field: the whole look is basically depth of field with bokeh added, or DoF/bokeh. All the so-called “bokeh” are really variations of DoF/bokeh.

Hey so question for those who do street photography. I wonder how you guys would handle when you take photos focused on strangers, like do you ask them, or do you really try to hide that you're taking their photo or just out in the open?

I ask because it is something I'd like to try with my camera, I just moved into a city so I'd like to start practice doing it, I just feel awkward taking pictures of strangers, and feel like im invading their privacy and that im in the wrong. So just looking to hear some stories of your experience in street photography, good stories, bad stories, and advice on how you approach it.

Stay in shape and dont look likr a pedo and youll be fine. Keep a scrap book with shit you havr shot before so when insecure people come up to you, yiu can show them the pics.

Either that, shoot from the hip, act like youre adjusting thr cam and come off as even more creepy, or just grow a pair of balls.

Shithead. Otherwise you werent passionate about photography in the first place if you are afraid of what others think.

I'm a researcher at my university doing work towards my MSc. My field of study is photography and computer vision (pattern/feature recognition, image processing, etc).

I need a wide angle macro lens, at least f/4 (2.8 would be nice) for an application I'm working on. It needs to be as sharp as possible. If I had no budget, what would you suggest?

>>3146388

That's actually pretty good! It has tilt correction, too, judging by video reviews it works well. I take a lot of photos of materials from a tripod pointing downwards; tilt correction means I can have it more relaxed at an angle versus direct BEV.

How much magnification do you need? You could use basically any lens with some extension tubes for more magnification.

Does anyone here use a Holga Digital? You know, the one that was produced through Kickstarter a few years back (2015 i think)?


This camera seems to have been a complete flop. Apparently when it first came out, they made the kickstarter supporters wait a full month after it was released in stores to actually send them their camera. The company did not communicate with the people either, even when they requested refunds after not receiving their camera or from defective models.

The build quality isn't great either, and instead of the listed "glass lens" and "switchable f/2.8 / f/8" aperture, these don't seem to exist on the camera. There is no screen to view the images, and sometimes the cf card apparently doesnt work out of the box and needs to be formatted by the camera itself to be functional.


With that all being said, it sounded fun to me, so I picked one up. It was only $20 at my local Urban Outfitters, down from the original $80. I just couldn't pass that up, however shitty it was and is. I personally like it so far, though I can see why people would be critical if they had to pay full price for this. It's a Holga, though, so what were people honestly really expecting? I do wish that it had an original holga lens in front of the sensor, instead of just an average tiny webcam type lens that it does. Either way, its shitty.

Does anyone out there own/use this camera regularly? Do you have thoughts about it other than the ones already out there? I am interested in hearing about ways to make this camera functional and easier to use. I would really like to know what is up with the sunny/cloudy setting. It seems to change the white balance, but it doesn't seem to change the shutter speed or aperture exactly. I also really want to know if anyone has experiences with using a flash with this, as I always seem to get totally blown out photographs, even with cheap, light duty flashes.

I'll post some things I have shot so far.


It seems to have a fairly long lag between when you click the shutter and when it takes the image, leading to rolling shutter and blur. I find these accidents sometimes really interesting, but usually if I dont stand still for a while its just a blurry mess.

This makes me appreciate that this is digital though, because if you take 300 pictures in a day, you will likely wind up with at least a handful that are interesting like this it seems.

Alright.


It seems to be fairly sharp in bright sun, though I do notice that sometimes it can expose completely incorrectly and give me really dark shadows, or it can wind up really flat. I suppose it has some sort of simple meter system that it then uses to calculate the true shutter speed/aperture (I am under the impression that its just shutter speed it fucks with, though)

How can i get sharper photos? I'm in doubt if the problem is my gear, skill or both...

How can i edit them properly? I use Lightroom to edit them and the majorty of time i do it manually, sometimes, i use some luts or presets just to mess around, but i never get the result desired.

Quality and control of light has A LOT more to do with apparent sharpness than the difference between your $500 gear and $3500 gear.

Test it yourself; take some normal still life shots indoors with and without flash and crop in and you'll notice a dramatic difference in detail.

For the pic you posted, an overcast day at 800 ISO wide open won't give you sharp results. You want
>lower ISO
>f/8 or f/11 (usually gives sharpest results)
>better light

Can you post some pictures that have the style you want to emulate
>>
The lower the iso the "better" the image quality, for aperture most lenses are sharpest around f/8 and always use a shutter speed faster than your focal length to avoid camera shake (if focal length = 50mm use speeds 1/50 or faster).
>>
>>3145691
>>3145692

I did read about setting it to f/8 or higher but then what can i do when i take pictures at night? i usually like to take pictures when i'm walking home from work and it's dark already.

A style i'd like to emulate would be something like this probably https://www.instagram.com/notorious_jamil_c/

It's the only i could remember at the moment.

Thanks in advance.

Hey hey, got a quick question.

Wanting to get a camera to film the stars.

Love space.

Nikon P900, or Nikon L34?

L34 is higher rez, P900 has better zoom.

Which camera should I get to view the stars?

Give explanations please.

Thanks :)
15 posts and 1 images submitted.
>>
P900 is $600
L34 is $200
>>
>>3145211
To film the stars you need as large a sensor as possible and lens with the widest aperture. And not canon. Photography low light performance is all about how much light your camera can gather, a full frame camera like the sony a7 has a sensor with approximately 30 times greater surface area than the p900. And not canon, as their low light performance is well behind sony, who make every other sensor for every other brand pretty much.

Look at sony a7 range, nikon d750, d610, d800, d810, pentax k1, etc.

Then for lens, you want something wide and fast, 35mm or wider and f2 or faster. A wide lens will allow a longer shutter speed without the stars turning into streaks, longer shutter = more light gathered. A faster lens will let in more light at once.

You will also need a sturdy af tripod and a vehicle with plenty of petrol to reach dark sky areas.

Good luck!
>>
>>3145217
Thanks!


I see many people on youtube using P900's to film planets and stars.

Here is one such video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dICIKYn5w4w


Saw a few L340 videos too and they look similar.

Just wondering if the p900 is worth that extra cash opposed to the L340...

Here are specs.

Does this photo have a shred of artistic integrity? Because I swear I've seen this exact same shot with multiple different women from EVERY MILLENNIAL PHOTOGRAPHER FROM CALIFORNIA.


Link to the page- https://twitter.com/jenni0choa

Every pic is the exact same. Dim room with these weird neon lights, and sluts caked in makeup making sensual poses. I personally feel that it's not interesting, not classy, not of ANY artistic value whatsoever, and not worthy of anyone's time.

Is Image Stabilisation actually useful?
I don't own any lenses with image stabilisation but I'm considering it at the moment. Not exactly sure why though.
Landscapes I use a tripod/rock/car roof/fence post/etc or if its daytime, just a decent shutter speed.
Low light shots of people I do the same or bump the ISO to maybe 2000 max if I want to take it without any real set up. I generally avoid on camera flash because it looks terrible to me.
I suppose that's the time to use it but at 1/20sec or so, won't you get blurred people from general human movement anyway? And at higher speeds, I don't notice myself shaking enough to impact the quality of shots.

Basically I feel like still subjects can be shot with a steady base in low light and spur of the moment stuff either requires a decent shutter speed or else the subject will likely move too much.

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious though.
What's the scenario that makes IS worth it?
I am not saying its shit BTW. I am sure I'm a genuine mong. I just don't know why yet.

It's a tool that can be employed if you have a need for it. Just because it exists doesn't mean you have to have it. Think about how/if it would help in your technique and the subjects you like to shoot. If you can't see a benefit don't waste money on it.

Yeah, I guess so. It just seems so good at first glance. Like, hells yeah I could use an extra 4 stops! But I don't think it would benefit my shooting.

With stills, it's just a very nice tool to have.
However, IS is EXTREMELY useful with video as it can be nearly day and night difference in footage stability. If you're filming on the go, IS (or better yet, IBIS) is a must.
