I just got a roll of Kodachrome 40. After some research the conclusion is that there is not a single lab in this world that will develop it. I don't get it. Kodak won't do it and they're not producing any developer for the K14 process any more. So why won't they just make the process public so anyone can use it? I really can't understand the reasoning.
Got a decent telescope for Christmas and want to try my hand at some astrophotography, been using the moon for practice, I have some night time shots, but took this one today in the day time and it's probably my favourite so far.
Can I have some honest opinions and maybe some input on how I can do it better?
>>2745015 1) People have seen the moon, so just a photo of the moon, while being a personal accomplishment for you, doesn't really have a whole lot to offer your viewer, unless it's really special, which this isn't. 2) You need to work on your composition. You're only using about 1/3rd of your frame, and the rest isn't doing much to support the scene 3) You need to work on your post processing. This looks really soft and muddy, which can be polished up quite a bit in post if you know what you're... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2745019 Yeah I know the moon isn't the most impressive or rare thing in the sky lol, but as I said I'm just using it as practice until I get my technique better.
The only using 1/3rd of the frame issue could be solved by cropping, right?
What's good software to use post? I have GIMP, but I'm still learning the basics really. The corners being dark is because of the scope, but that's easily cropped out I guess,.
The fine detail seems to depend a lot on the clouds and atmosphere. I see a lot more details with my 2X Barlow lens, but with the moon only being in crescent phase, the magnification doesn't leave me much to focus on. I'm hoping to get some better shots using it at half or full moon.
Here's one of the night time pics I took, they all came out quite blurry, but I realised it was my fault, the hot air from my houses heating system kept blowing in front of the scope -_-
So basically, crop more, learn post processing technique?
>Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Arctic Monkeys, Black Keys, The Decemberists, Belle & Sebastian and other like bands Holga preferably beaten up and full of light leaks, Diana, Nikon Df, any camera than is 120mm or medium format
>Radiohead, Neutral Milk Hotel, My Bloody Valentine, Merriweather Post Pavilion, The Antlers, The Microphones Potato camera
What camera should I get if I want to go on week long journeys in the wilderness? I'm just getting into everything so either way I'd either learn photography or videography I assume most ones would be digital but if not I would consider it
It's sad how transparent it is when people like >>2740387 start false-flagging dumb gear question threads, as though it's not immediately obvious what they're doing. Maybe in their heads, they think that this will change the collective opinion of the board in their favor again, but to the rest of us, they just come off as emotional, obnoxious sacks of shit.
>>2740771 >1. How unwieldy is something like this to carry around? It is feasible if you drive. You don't want to carry it on your back all the time, tho it is possible.
>2. Best place to get 8x10 film and are there any emulsions that are different from the 120 format offerings? This depends on where you live. You can get some ortho films that are not available to smaller formats. Sheets will be expensive, considerably more than 4x5 sheets. (here... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2740771 >1. How unwieldy is something like this to carry around? It is still being shipped so I haven't seen it yet. Extremely unwieldy. You would be surprised by just how big and heavy large format is until you have to carry it around. You see it in photos like the one you posted and you think, "damn, that's big." You are in no way prepared for the reality of the situation. >2. Best place to get 8x10 film and are there any emulsions that are different... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello everyone! I was using Android, since few days ago i bought Nokia Lumia 535 and I'm very interested in photography, so, could you guys recommend me some apps, free if possible, for photo editing and stuff. I would appriciate if you guys know some app which could help me in getting my photos edited on trippy way, like pic i posted. *sorry for my english :(
Hey there /p/. I've shot few rolls of film now and enjoyed it tremendously. I've decided to buy a somewhat big supply of film so I don't have to buy few rolls at a time from the local shop.
Prices however in Finland are somewhat expensive. For example one roll of HP5 costs 7,20€ and ten rolls of HP5 is 62€. I found this one German shop (fotoimpex) selling HP5 for under 5€. Their shipping was a little expensive but on the other hand big order might justify the cost.
Are there any other options (Germany, Estonia?) or should I just bite the bullet... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You live in one of the richest countries in the world yet you still complain of the prices? Being poor in a rich country ain't so bad compared to being poor in a third world country. I live in a 3rd world country but I work my ass off so I can afford all the luxuries I have. Stop complaining. #firstworldproblems
>>2744275 Well German Amazon is selling HP5 for over 8€ per roll which is really bananas. And ten rolls of the same stuff in UK Amazon is around 62€ (the same price as in Finland). So I don't think Amazon is the way to go.
For me it happened when I got sick of luggig around 2 camera, 4+ lenses, 3 flashes, triggers, and light stands. Shooting became a chore and I slowly started cutting back on what I took out with me. Eventually I started selling off what I no longer used and kept the bare essentials. Now I have a digital camera with 2 primes and a medium format camera with 2 primes. I never take either out at the same time and rarely take more than 1 lens with me.
A simple setup allows me to spend more time seeing and looking and less time figuring out which pieces of gear will yield the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2742108 >I probably have spent around $1000+ on all my gear on 1 year alone
you dont have GAS, youre just a poorfag. photo is kinda expensive if you want to take the serious route.
now, think of this: every buy of gear should have a functional reason behind it. you dont buy a wide angle for the fuck of it, or because "everyone should have at least one". buy it because your type of photos need it.
