I want to photograph ballet dancers. I'm an underweight 30 year old man with long hair. My gear consists of two old 35mm film cameras that I bought at a thrift shop and a cheap tripod. I only recently picked up the hobby, so I don't have a portfolio of any kind. I don't already know anybody who does ballet or who knows ballet dancers. But I want to photograph ballet dancers more than anything.
So, how the fuck am I supposed to accomplish this?
>>2709838 Are you American or European? Is there a ballet scene in your nearest city? The most logical step is literally to call up a place that does ballet and tell them exactly what you just told us. You'll find that all performers, including ballet people, require a certain amount publicity and photos, even if those photos are just for their facebook page. It could even work out better for them than it does for you if you take their photos. So don't be afraid of getting in touch with them.

I'm American. I know there's a ballet scene here since I've been to a few performances with my mother when I was younger, but I haven't looked into ballet studios in my area yet. I'm honestly mainly concerned that I won't be taken seriously and that they'll think that I'm just some kind of pervert creep or something.
>>2709625 By country. In that folder I have all the jpegs, a folder called RAW that contains all the raws, another folder called edits where the good raws are moved to and postprocessed, and lastly a folder called VIDEO for any recordings I've done which are few since I Dont care about video.
My USA folder is organized by State and then date of pics taken. I Dont leave NY/nj, but it helps keep organization
Lemme just hijack this thread I'm also looking for a film scanner under $200, but it must be supported by SANE ("good" or "complete" on http://www.sane-project.org/lists/sane-mfgs-cvs.html) It would also be nice if it could do 4x5.
currently I'm looking at the canon 9000f, but it can't do 4x5 in a single pass. I've used one before and was pretty happy with the results so it's probably a good choice for 35mm or medium format.
Hi /p/, What camera I should look for during cyber monday. I am a hiker and spend alot of time in nature. Recently I started taking pictures with my phone, and I want to upgrade to using a proper camera. I am not sure if DSLR are what I should be buying, or rather a point and shot or mirrorless or whatever. Any tips to help a newby? I am really looking for something entry level that produces acceptable pictures
what is your budget? "entry level" is pretty broad.
i got into photography in the same manner as you, i loved hiking. started with a nikon coolpix s9700 which is a decent option as its capable of decent macro photography (bugs) as well as very long zoom (bears) and wide-angle shots (landscapes). the sensor is the same size as your cell phone's, however. the shots weren't of optimal quality but it was way more versatile than a cell phone.
i upgraded to a full frame Nikon D750. that's unnecessary for you. i wanted to develop my macro photography... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
at your budget i'd ignore pretty much any interchangable lens system... there's not much point IMO. there's plenty of decent point & shoots in your budget to learn photography basics with and take hiking shots.
>tfw a dslr is too big for my girly hands >tfw my ex gf has bigger hands than me >tfw no gf
I shoot almost professionally now but after about an hour of shooting my right hand hurts especially the bottom part of the palm because the camera feels to big. I don't have problem with the weight since I lift but having small hands suck. I don't like mirrorless though especially for pro work. What are my options?
