Hi /p/, I'm a noob to this hobby and I've been taking photos of people and scenery for a while now. I want to move forward and try my hand at effects and fake light.

How do you get colored lighting effects like the pic I uploaded and which kind of light equipment I should buy? Does anyone know where to find cheap and portable fog machines? Every cheap fog machine I have seen needs to be plugged and the battery ones are in the €1000+ range.

Any help towards the right direction or suggestions would be much appreciated.

>How do you get colored lighting effects like the pic I uploaded
Shoot a nice sharp picture with a good camera and good illumination from speedlights, then do digital post with photoshop or some other editor.

The background with the gradient might even be shopped into the image.

> Does anyone know where to find cheap and portable fog machines?
Also, here: Dry ice. Not technically a machine, of course, but it is fairly portable and doesn't need a power plug.

Alternatively, try ultrasonic foggers like for fountains.

If you want portable power, use a like honda generator and power your fog machine - forget batteries for bigger appliances, they'll be way too heavy overall

I dont know how to use PS but I can try your suggestion. Thanks for the input!

Is there a way to change the color of the dry ice?

What the fuck Adobe.

I noticed this after going through a bunch of pics. When I use the "previous conversion" option (not sure if that is what its called in english, sorry), that hideous banding shows up. Only and only when using that. If I input the same very settings manually, it doesn't happen.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Forgot to mention, the banding sticks even if I zero in each slider. I have to pick "default camera settings" in order to get rid of them.

Here's the same pic with the same settings that caused the banding.

Wot?

Do you have a car? Drive up to another city, take a few days off work, see what you can see.

That being said, try and see things in your own city from a new perspective. Or, set up some scenes with friends in decent locations where you are.

I understand there is a christmas theme to the shoot, however I find the background very distracting. Perhaps shooting the drinks in a studio with some mistletoe or something may have been a better approach to it but I'm not sure.
>>
seconding, backgrounds steals the attention, even if out of focus. it's way too busy.
your product is also quite in the dark, needs much more light on it. what's bright attracts the eye, and in here, your background is brighter.

by all product photography standards, you did bad. I kinda like your approach on colors though.

has lots of errors, but you got the mood right so youre well started. thats a key element.

box looks unimpresive. id put it centered, shot from an angle, and with more separation from background. aka. smoother bokeh.. id do this using telephoto from a corner (get up a chair) or some cool wide angle big aperture lens. also use back lightning on the subject to give it shape, right now its an ugly shadowy bulk. subject is underexposed, needs a direct light source too. also white balance, looks tungsten as fuck.

post corrected version anon.

I take lots of portraits but I think I can be making them better. I have two umbrellas, two spotlights and a handful of flashes that work wirelessly with my camera. How should I be setting them up? Diagrams and suggested reads would be great. Pic related, took this earlier today.
Also lighting general

How you set your lighting depends entirely on the mood of the shoot you're going for. Are you just asking for every lighting setup known to man, listed for you at my expense? Or do you just not feel like googling "Portrait Lighting Diagram"?
>>
>>2714062
Did you make the background white in post?

And it looks you're underlighting his (your?) face with the key--throwing unfortunate shadows from his nose and sweater.

And this framing is weird. Double amputee.

And it looks like you tried to kick from the same side that the key light is on, which is also weird and unconventional. This is just all backwards.

Sorry, I didn't intend to put the load of work on your shoulders Anon. Most of the results google has returned have been from c u c k s that don't actually produce good fotos. Tbh, I hadn't even thought about how mood would affect lighting when using artificial light.

Hello /p/

I want to equip my bedroom with one or two always-on cameras. But there's so many choices out there... webcams, surveillance cameras, etc.

All I want is crisp and smooth 1080p at 30 fps and a sensor that has no IR flter. So I'll also need to have a hidden but fairly strong IR light source in the room.

Ideally, the video would be saved straight to the server I have in the guest room, and only save the last 3 days of footage.

Does any of you have a set-up like this in your home? Or anything similar?

I'm pretty new to photography, I have a Canon Powershot SX520 (I know, kinda on the cheap side of things) I was thinking about getting filters, but I had questions that I didint know where else to ask. First, is it worth it to buy filters? Second are there specific filters for each camera or do they all work for all. I took this pic a few months ago. Settings on auto I think because I had gotten the camera two days prier so I was still figuring things out. (First camera that wasn't like a $50 Kodak)

Zero : there are many things much more important than filters, and you don't seem to even know what sort of filter you're looking for. I wouldn't recommend you to even bother with that, yet.

1: depends
2: no, it's dependent on the lens diameter.

So Pirelli decided to let an overrated, jewish feminist take the pictures of their famous Calendar.

Why? She has no talent at all. All she does is pressing the shutter button. Her countless assistans do everything else for her.
How can she call herself a (professional) photographer?

Oh boy OP, you might be the first one to discover these, you should publish your results in a scientific magazine

/p/, what is your philosophy on post-processing, and how do you utilize it?

I'm relatively new to serious photography and shooting in RAW. I've only just started using Lightroom and begun to understand the potential of the program. Recovering shadows and un-fucking blown highlights is incredible to me. And I have no idea how to utilize the color treatment options. I've only recently mastered white balance and now I can screw with individual channels. I'm drunk with power.

But I don't know think I've achieved a tasteful balance between...

I'm new to the terminology. I guess they're not actually blown out but just brighter than looks good.

I guess blown out means truly unrecoverable and forever white?

You can recover detail in an area so long as there is at least one channel that is not maxed at 255. Don't be a pedantic shitface.

>>2713008
OP, just practice, and do what looks right to you. Do an edit, and if you think it's too heavy, get up and walk away. Come back 20 minutes later, and if it looks bad to you, then fix it. There's no way you would be perfect at it to start off with. Just go slowly, and make yourself happy.
