Sorry for the late response, I was asleep.

So the S95 is a good choice then? Because I can get one like new for 150 after shipping with all the stuff included.

Is this the way to go for someone who just wants a really high quality point and shoot that can still do pretty crisp/less grainy pictures? Because I'll grab it when I'm back from work if it is.

Nikon D3300. Yes, that's one option.

I personally do not like the Canon Rebels. High-end Canon (e.g. 5D III and above) are fine, but the Rebels and older/low-end Canon cameras are lacking in sensor performance & software features in comparison to the other brands.

I don't see why you wouldn't get a Pentax, Sony, Olympus or whatever else instead...

this is so amazing and makes me cry, but is it possible to achieve this effect with a medium or small format camera? I want to take circular photos but a fish eye filter is out of question because of distortion. applying tape would be a solution, but pic related has this particular effect, the flares at the top - the picture looks like a bubble or a big glass button, which is lovely. are there any lens filters or overlays which would help to achieve this effect? ofc the border will be inevitably black, but that's not a problem

the "flares"are from uneven pressure and unevenly spread developer. this is only possible in instant film. if you want a circular image with negatives just shoot square and use a matte when printing, or crop circular in post if you use a digital workflow

i started as a faggot contemporary photog, aping the germans and stuff like that. then i became tired of the shallowness and went back to a more classical aproach, which i feel more genuine. but colleages around are still doing the nth deadpan portrait in pale tones, bringing "current issues" to the table.

and i just want to make good photos.

pic unrelated

I'm having trouble getting a lot of different objects in focus on my 5d , is this because of full frame? Is there anything I can do? I just don't want a shallow depth of field EVERY single shot.

Going up to F/22 with a decent shutter speed requires like 3 suns to be able to see anything unless I'm on ISO 3200.

I would like to be able to take sharp pics of people and backgrounds with at least a decent iso of 600.

Even f/8 blurs the hell out of a background thats 2 feet away from the subject

I see. So on my camera according to some COC chart it says I need 0.030 to achieve hyperfocal distance? For 35mm at whatever distance that site uses..

Is there any way to estimate this beyond using a calculator or chart every time?
>>
>>2785912
experience. like metering by eye it's something you learn over time without thinking about it.

The answer to your question is either a wider lens or a smaller aperture. f2.8 on a 28mm has far more in focus than f2.8 on a 75mm, for example. During daytime I shoot my 28mm @ f8 and it's pretty much foolproof

Hey guys.
About 1 year ago my laptop's hdd broke down and with it went years of my work. About 60gb of raw photos and some jpegs were lost. Tried recovering them with no success. I looked at the hdd and it seems to have some burned out pins. Is there any way to recover them all? Ever since this happened I basically quit photography because I feel to depressed. I tried to reproduce some of the shots, but its not the same.

It doesn't matter what kind of file you're recovering. The principles are the same.

So story goes I got into college for NC Photography (I'm just starting professionally) and one of the key requirements obviously is to get a DSLR of your choice. Now iv been looking around and came to the conclusion of a choice between a Sony A58 and a Nikon D3300. I like the Sony due to the video functions and that it will turn any full manual lens into a full auto. Also the built in anti shock helps. And since I'm beginning a EVF would help me precomposed my shots as a beginner since I will see every change. But then again should I get a D3300 and get used to the...

i dont know what you want to do or what kind of shooting you want to do, etc. but i'd recommend the K-3 or K-3 ii. you might not want to get into the pentax system (idk why since they have the new full frame k-1 releasing soon) but you can pick up a k-3 for 650 USD and their 35mm 2.4 and 50mm 1.8 are dirt cheap. plus weather sealing in the camera and lots of their lenses, even some of the cheap ones. plus the viewfinder is great 100% coverage, 95% magnification. more limited lense selection compared to canikon tho

also I very much doubt the A58 has the ability to fully automate manual lenses with aperture rings and manual focus

I doubt it. It looks like good natural light to me, with judicious use of a polarizer and solid post-processing. There might be a single flash placed to the photographer's right, other than that I don't see much sign of lighting.

Not true. You can still remove it in post. Especially if it was more than one exposure.

But to the OP there doesn't look like any, but probably a fill flash for the front bumper.

I need some advice, /p/
Next week I'm shooting a girl, it'll be a nude session
what do you guys recommend for light equipment and lenses?
>Equipment
I'll shoot digital and probably film, too, to experiment a little (for my portfolio and sideprojects)
I'll have a Nikon 3200 with kit lenses (18-55 and 50-200)
For film cameras, I'll use a Pentax K1000 with a 50mm prime, a Nikon N90 with 70-220 and a 18-200 (I can use these lenses on the digital Nikon, too), and a medium format Yashica-D
>Context
It'll be a nude session, but not a regular one
The girl is a prostitute and wants the photos to use them as advertisement in one of those vip escort sites
We'll probably shoot in my friend's appartment, and she wants some hot poses, so ideas on poses are welcome too
thanks in advance, /p/

Is renting lighting an option? A pair of studio lights with big softboxes would be the easiest way to light this, and would pretty much take the camera out of the equation. Even a cheap consumer point and shoot will look good if it's shooting a nude lit by a pair of Profoto heads with 60" boxes.

Given your lighting, it's gonna be a bit tricky but should still be doable. If your friend is a photog, see if you can borrow a fast prime for your digital as well, a 50 is actually a pretty good length on crop for this kind of thing.

Go devour strobist's site if you haven't already, he's got the best resources out there on doing big shoots with little lights.

A few other things I'll recommend. First of all, make sure your friend's apartment is ready to shoot, and that it...

MjuII-small.jpg
47 KB,
Fuck the Sony RX1. Buy an Olympus Mju II and you’d be enjoying a 800% discount on the price of an RX1; that’s enough for a LOT of film, perhaps 1000 rolls including processing. RX1 owners will never shoot that much, and certainly won’t give as much care to each individual image. Film-shooting is different to digital, the moment people pick up anything with a screen, they become trigger happy and shoot shit.

This. An equal alternative to the MJU II is the Fuji XT1.
>>
>>2785367
I keep missing focus with close subjects with my Mju II. Even when I use spot metering. I don't know what I am doing wrong.

You can't compare the two anyways. The RX1 isn't truly pocketable. But the RX1 has a better image quality.

Also I think the whole "with film you put more time and thought into subjects" thing is a meme. It's actually restrictive and an argument against film. Have you ever seen professional photographers work? They often used one roll of film for just one subject. Its better to take photographs from different angles and settings and pick the best later when you have time to think.
>>
You get the optical (depth of field, etc) properties of full frame, but the entry cost is significantly lower; moreover, there’s almost zero depreciation in the price of the camera.

Did you just add that writing in Photoshop? The real solid saturation of those ugly boxes draws attention in a bad way.

If you are going to have something draw so much focus its best you make it look immaculate. In this case, it looks contrived and uncomfortable.

The photo would have been even better without the writing in the bottom right. Fuck, axe the fucking writing maybe? Photography is oft about subtly, this is NOT graphic design. While the two fields oft overlap, I feel that graphic design is a different field that has different rules.

Don't get me wrong, your image isn't great from a photography or a graphic design point of view. It is probably more conceptual design work, but that doesn't make it a good exemplar.

Either route that you go I feel that subtlety of message is important. By presenting your focal point in blown out red you have committed the visual-art equivalent of premature ejaculation. You've given the viewer scarce little reason to look at your picture for more than 3 seconds without contemplating really anything.

I don't mean to offend you and always admire new attempts or techniques. But I thought I would try and be as clear as possible in my CC to give you more than a "looks like shit". I want to tell you white it looks like shit so that you can improve.

Is the Sony NEX-VG10 an alright camera for about 400 euros (440 USD)? There's a used one for that price for sale on a nearby store, but I heard it was already pretty outdated back when it was released in 2010, so I'm not really sure if it's totally worth it.

Mostly cinematic filmmaking, but I don't really have any sort of stylistic preference, so a jack of all trades for all sorts of stable shooting situations is for the best.
