I took pics at a place that didn't have a ceiling to bounce off the flash. I ended up just putting on a diffuser and aimed the flash directly in front of me. This resulted in ugly shadows behind everything I shot. What could I have done differently?
>>2737333 You sir are an arsehole, i couldn't find only exorbitant auction prices, nothing realistic. I really tought you guys were different from the guys on /b/ and would actually get an educated person give me a real answer, i guess not.
>>2736509 >wasting valuable time and sunlight aimlessly wandering around for something interesting in a place you haven't been in years instead of doing research beforehand and having a plan knowing exactly what you want to shoot
>>2733247 Not OP but stockpiling has it's place when an emulsion you love becomes discontinued. I bought 250 rolls of Agfa APX 100 and 50 rolls of RSX 50 when Agfa went belly up, Scalla was already gone. I shot the APX but the RSX still sits in my fridge because no one wants to run it through their C41 chemistry anymore. I would kill for the rolls OP has of 160VC
How badly did I fuck up? On Friday I purchased a d70,and since then I have been reading photography books I borrowed from the local library, almost every author has nothing good to say about crop sensors and talks about how you should go for full frame.
I spent €900 in total on the camera and kit lens, and there are eos 6d's/5d mark ii for around 200 more on eBay.
>>2736053 >Does an aps-c have any benefits over full frame? it's smaller and usually cheaper you though have paid way too much for what you bought >>2736059 >Sensor technology is making them obsolete fast. please provide examples
You didn't. A camera is as good as how you use it. Full frame is better no doubt, but it's heavier, lenses are 3 times more expensive at the very least , and if you can't shoot good photos then full frame won't fix it. There's nothing inherently wrong with a crop sensor just like there's nothing inherently wrong with an old smartphone. They did the job fine then and they still do it now, and using them to the maximum depends on how much of a gear-stroking faggot you are, since gear is improving to serve a good photographer in making the photograpy...

So I got my application to join Alamy approved and have started adding photos on there to sell.
I was wondering if anyone on /p/ has any stock photography stories to share? Most people moan how they couldn't make money, but then I see contributors with 10,000+ images and they can't all be autistic.
When taking portraits during travel, would it be bad to be using shallow DoF all the time? For example, I want to take a photo of a person in front of a famous tourist site but if I blur the background, what's the point of taking vacation photos???
Just got back from a trip where I shot all portraits at f/2.8 to f/4.0 and the subjects are complaining that the background is blurred and nobody can tell where they are?? Thanks.
>>2737360 well you need to choose what you want your subject to be, whether you want a portrait or a landscape photo. Very difficult to have both in a good photo. Your friends just want a typical shitty holiday photo where they are tiny people at the bottom of the pic in typical shitty poses probably hugging each other with a shitty landmark in the back. That's why I don't take my DSLRs for holidays, take some instax or a 10 bucks film point and shoot instead, pic related
>>2737360 >the subjects are complaining that the background is blurred and nobody can tell where they are Well that should give you a clue. If you want to take a portrait in a certain environment it makes sense that the environment should be recognisable. Just because it is a portrait it doesn't mean that everything but the nose and eyes must be out of focus.
Employ a little common sense and remember that the importance of bokeh has been elevated by blogs in order to make you feel... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
what do you think is better for gopro videos/photos /p/?
>Flat colour, WB and ISO manually tuned for conditions with post processing. >Gopro Colour, WB and ISO manually tuned for conditions with no post processing. >Protune off altogether with auto settings with post processing. >Your option??
Just got a gopro hero 4 silver for a trip to Canada and trying to learn as much as I can before I leave.
It's ok being a hobbyist but you will never make it and achieve anything in your photography if you never become a professional. I'm like that as well but you will forever be an "amateur" who's photographs won't exceed the snapshot status. All the best photographs in this world were shot by pros and not amateur snapshooters who talk about gear all the time and has no plan becoming a pro.

I myself only improved so much when I started getting paid for my photos. I've recently shot a wedding and it taught me a lot.
