So, I want to buy a DSLR mainly for video but also multipurpose. After some research I am now between two models and can't decide wich one to pick: Canon T5i or Nikon D5300. What should I buy? Are there any better options for the money?
I'm a filmmaking student from Argentina and both models were recomended by my teachers. My budget is $650 so I'm not picking any higher models, and won't buy anything used.

What are some interesting uses of long exposure that aren't just the same old smooth water, sparks and moving cars shots?

Are there any uses/examples of long exposure at a macro level?

I want to buy either the DX or FX version of the new Nikon AF-P 70-300 lenses for my D7500. Which one should I get?

The 70-300 is a soft piece of shit on FF already it will be even softer on crop.
The 50-300 will be perfect for that toy camera anyways.
But do what you want, seeing you already fell for the D7500 odds are you will continue to make the same bad decisions in the future.
>>
>>3144091
You seem pretty jaded, senpai. You obviously have no idea about the superiority of the AF-P models nor the fact that the D7500 is the best DSLR in its price class.

I don't normally post here so feel free to call me a retard if this in the wrong place. But i recently picked up this and i was wondering if there's any 3rd party companies that make film for this?

The film bay says SX-70 which i assume is the model.

That camera utilizes SX-70 film which can be purchased only from the Impossible Project. Expect to shell $25 for a cartridge of 8 photographs. If you want to get into square-format film I advice you purchase the new Lomography Square Instant Camera. In the long run it is a cheaper ($15 dollars for 10 photographs) option and will provide less quality issues in the photograph development.

Thanks mate. If they are really that expensive i might just leave it on my shelf for decoration and check out that instant camera you mentioned.

Let's talk about social media as it pertains to photography and sharing your work with others/marketing yourself. Is instagram the be all end all social media site for photographers? Are flickr, facebook pages, tumblr etc antiquated relics of the past or do they still have a place? How do you even use instagram? If you travel somewhere and took 300+ photos, do you mass upload a shit ton of photos (after doing you basic culling routine of course). Or do you use instagram more like a pseudo portfolio and only uploading a handful of your very best work?

>Is instagram the be all end all social media site for photographers?

As of right now, Yes. However, IG has it in their financial interest to make it more and more difficult for the users to get their content out to a wide audience. They want it to be more difficult, so you consider spending money on advertising with them. So it's great for right now, but something can pop up in the future to replace it, and it will probably look very similar.

>Are flickr, facebook pages, tumblr etc antiquated relics of the past or do they still have a place?

I haven't uploaded to flickr in 5 years, I haven't uploaded to FB in like 2 years. I dumped facebook because they got too greedy, and made it impossible to run a page without spending money on advertisement. IG is going the exact same way right now though.

>How do you even use instagram?
I use it to post my best photos, with the end goal of getting my photos shared by a larger page or getting to be one of the top posts in a hashtag

>If you travel somewhere and took 300+ photos, do you mass upload a shit ton of photos (after doing you basic culling routine of course). Or do you use instagram more like a pseudo portfolio and only uploading a handful of your very best work?

DO NOT dump all of your shit. Why would you show terrible snapshits? Only show your best work at any given time. posting 5 good photos is better than posting 295 shitty photos and only 5 good ones, nobody will look through all your photos. And don't dump them all at once. Post once a day at most if you have the material to do that. I personally post once per week

Rotolight or stay home. Don't even wince at the price. It can be had from Jew&H or Amazon for less than 300USD

And if by some circumstance money's an issue get a cheapo clip on light.

Gearfagging is the ultimate form of photography, the red pill, and Sony is winning by miles.

Think about it, every great photo has already been taken, there is nothing new to learn. All forms of light manipulation have been used in studio. Every inch of the planet has been explored and same goes even for our solar system. The most beautiful and interesting models have been shot and there is nothing left to do.

The only photographic exploration left for humanity is in our minds, and to accomplish that can only be done through technology.

Just like how instagram celebs don't live the way they portray, but how they envision in their minds, the pictures you take don't matter, what matters is how you envision yourself taking photos.

It's impossible to envision yourself taking the greatest photos on anything less than the best gear. This is why gear is the most important part of photography. It doesn't matter if you even take pictures with it; if you have the greatest camera available, you are the greatest.

It's not about what you've done, everything has already been done. It's about what you could do if you wanted to. The best photographers in the world don't even need to take a single picture, but only envision it with their knowledge and gear.

This doesn't look like a case of something hitting the print as it's ejected. This looks more like bad film. I shot a bunch of thoroughly expired Polaroid film a few years back and got these sorts of results where part of the chemicals have just crystalized or something so they don't develop the image.

Should I call impossible project and complain? This is new film

Hey /p/ I'm doing my first ever wedding (first pro still shooting period) in December. Any advice for shooting something like this? I film for a local news station so I've got no stage fright but I'm a bit curious as to what exactly I will need to focus on.

>>3142689
Not trying to be mean, but new shooting really doesn't prepare you for anything, it has zero aesthetic in terms of photographic composition, so I'm hoping you have a lot of experience actually shooting non-news related stuff.

With that being said, just go find a wedding that one of your friends got photos of, and just copy it shot for shot. It's all the fucking same. I will never doing wedding photography, too much stress. I will however do wedding videography, more observant instead of directing people, and there's much more leeway on missed focus.
>>
>>3142692
Well to be frank while it isn't ALWAYS the focus there is or rather can be "art" and aesthetic to a news shoot but I see what you mean. My main point is that I hear people say they worry about getting in people's way at a wedding. As a news man you get used to being in front of people and shooting. I have been lookijg at a lot of wedding shots though so I'll continue to do that, thanks anon, any other advice and I'll take it.
>>
I did my first wedding a while ago and it went fairly well. It was a free job for some friends and they knew I lacked experience but my work photography taught me to know the story in telling and know what shots I need before I even get there.
So I went to the location a couple of weeks early and took plenty of shots of my fiance there to work out exactly how I wanted to do each shot.
Weather and time of day will change some of this but on the day I was able to take charge, put people exactly where I wanted them and get every shot I wanted without having to move around trying to find the right composition while everyone was waiting.
I don't have the shots on my phone but the main thing id say is have a plan, practice it and then be ready to nail it on the day.

Another thing I've noticed from other people's wedding photos is that you should really focus on the bride but it's always nice to have a good set of shots of the boys as well.

Fake or heavy processing?

I don't think it is possible with just these equipment. Or is this a fake iPhone and Big Mac ad?
What do you think Mr anon photographer?

Hi /p/, I had been interested in photography for a long time and took a lot of good pics on my phone. Now I want to buy a DSLR (New or old). I am getting a used Canon Rebel T5i for $250 and the owner says that it was bought in 2014, comes with default lens and that it is in good condition. Can you tell me if it is worth it? Would you suggest buying a new one or an old one? I can spend up to $5-600, but only if there is a significant increase in picture quality.

If I am buying an old camera, what should I keep in my mind and what questions should I ask? Also, if I am buying a new one, if I wait until the Thanksgiving, can I get better cameras than now for the same price?
Thanks and sorry for the long post.

I spent between $150 and $200 on each of my 450Ds (both with kit 18-55mm lens), 6 months ago. You got quite the bargain if you are telling the truth.

>>3142000
If you have 600$ just buy new.

Second hand lenses are great, but body you should check the shutter count.
