hey guys, ive just started lurking /p/ and the board seems to be pretty interesting so im surely gonna spend much more time here photography interests me more and more with each day, but for now i dont have a single clue about it (i dont even have my own camera) so here comes my question to you - is there any approved starter guide like other boards have? if not could you direct me somewhere with basic knowledge how to take pictures, which newbie camera should i choose and even guide me how to hold it thank you in advance
Do you have a camera, like, any camera? Normally the best place to start is its manual. Read it. It will tell you what all the settings do (and if you don't understand it, you'll know exactly what to search for on the internet), how to hold the camera and how to use every feature of your camera to your advantage.
You could also start with 35mm film, which many people here (myself included) recommend. Manual film cameras and old lenses are pretty cheap, and they don't have any of the automatic bullshit in a modern camera (not even autofocus), so it forces... Comment too long.

As I was looking through my grandparents house I found an old poloroid and I've got a few questions. I would love to know if this film looks expired or what not, will I need to take a picture first to find out? Any opinions on this poloroid? Where can I find more film? Is it worth anything? Thanks
Yes. You won't find out if the battery (which is actually part of the film) is dead. If it's dead, you have to throw it out. The film in the picture has been exposed to light and so the first shot you take (if it isn't the last) will be blank.
>Any opinions on this polaroid?
I think it has a nice color.
>Where can I find more film?
Internet or a camera store that sells film for polaroids

Why does /p/ have such an issue with wedding photography?
-One of the few avenues left to make a living in photography. -Creatively one of the most rewarding as you are faced with a multitude of venues, body shapes and situations. -One of the most technically demanding requiring skills from multiple disciplines, everything from macro to large groups and in the best and shittiest light. -Also requires tremendous interpersonal skills as well as strong time management
>>2736822 >One of the few avenues left to make a living in photography. Yes, that's true, money in wedding photography is good. >Creatively one of the most rewarding as you are faced with a multitude of venues, body shapes and situations.

As a wedding photographer you can work from grand country halls to city centre hotels. From teepees in a field to rooftop restaurants. You can have old brides, young brides, fat brides, thin brides. Brides with big noses or ears. And you have to make all of them look good. To utilise your surroundings and available light, to augment with your own light, to hide negative aspects and enhance the positive takes real skill.
With regards to the technical side think about the range of shots: up close details of the dress and jewelry, candid shots of the guests, groom portrait, bridal portrait, family group shots, architectural shots of the venue, shots of the food and table details. Most of these you have very little control over forcing you to adapt to the conditions rapidly. You have to be confident in your skills and equipment.
Now, I would agree that wedding photography is not art as art should be created without compromise. Believe me wedding photography is fraught with compromise.
But that doesn't mean it is worthless, to be good takes true skill and to dismiss because of some arbitrary stipulation of its worthiness makes you blinded by your own snobbery.
>photography is not photography >photography is supposed to be art
I think I know what you meant to say, but you sure didn't articulate it well, hopefully your photogra... art is more clear and concise. Next time make some art to express your opinion instead! :DDDDDDDDDDDD
>>2736274 Big viewfinder, auto-focus, large controls and handling, durability, high image quality, large high resolution display. Yes, except for the size and social integration, I would recommend her smartphone camera or a small camera like a Leica T w/23mm lens and EVF is that is your budget, or a Sony RX100 IV to fit in a backpack or purse.
