Can anyone help me find the book, "Halftone photography for offset lithography" by Erwin Jaffe? I've looked all over and all I can find is a 10$ (+shipping) used copy on Amazon. I really do not want to pay that much for a book that is essentially useless.
>>2844169 15-20$ USD in total is 20-25$ CDN. I think it's absurd to pay 30$, the cost of nearly 3 rolls of 120 film, for a defunct book that only a loser like me would want. If I could find a digital copy, it would obviate purchase altogether.
I don't see what makes me poor in not wanting to waste money.
As promised, from my old thread >>2839943 We did a shoot with more planning and design. My D610 still hasnt arrived so i had fun doing all of it, again, with my Ricoh GR, im pretty pleased with most of the images that came across.
Anywho, i brought my saberstrip light, and she brought a bunch of different outfits to use, so once again, /p/, rip me a new one.
Camera manufacturers are always pushing for high iso performance, but why don't camera sensors usually go lower than 100 or in some cases, 200? the lowest base iso you can get on a digital camera is 64 on the d810.
Why don't we have any digital cameras that can go to say, iso 25?
>>2847648 Why did you allow the narrow depth of field? My eye wants to look at the bottom car in the middle and it's almost entirely out of focus. The focus point seems to be the maroon car in the bottom right.
so i took 10 rolls of film on vacation, managed to get past 3 airport x-rays without any film going through, and then like an idiot i throw my bag through one at the train station without taking it out.
how can i check if the film is fogged or not, before i either throw out or shoot the whole box? should i get a blank roll developed? should i shoot a roll normally and develop it as a test?
for reference, its 7 rolls of tri-x 400 (2 already shot at 1600 but still undeveloped), the rest I also intended to push to either 800 or 1600. and 3 rolls of CineStill 800T (all unshot)
Hey /p/, can you recommend any resources for learning to be better at portrait retouching?
I've been shooting portraits, fashion, cosplay, etc for a very long time, and I'm pretty good with direction and the photography side, but I worked with an excellent retoucher for many years and never got good at that side of things. I'm on my own now, and I really need to get better at it if I want to keep shooting this kind of stuff.
Don't break anything to gain entry into an "abandoned" area (most of these places aren't actually abandoned, by the way).
If you break something for entry, at least in America, you go from a misdemeanor of trespassing to felony breaking and entering. One is a "get out of here, you little scamp", the other is "you're going to do jail time and fuck up your life."
Really, though, just skip the whole urban exploration phase anyway. It's overplayed, lame and dangerous. Literally all stupid dickhead 20 year old males do it.
>>2846778 Oh come on anon, don't be so old and bitter, urbex photos, albeit thematically oversaturated nowadays, still offer a glimpse at something out of the ordinary, often unseen and outside of cliché locations in big cities there's a whole lot of obscure or unexplored places that might offer interesting sights and photos. Although, admittedly, most contain white city kid's first contact with outside world-themed trash or furniture snapshits. Then again we get jST threads.

Doing a nude male shoot. Guy has been working out and wants to showcase the goods. I've never worked with a nude male model and am wondering what works well. Should I have him shave down and oil up to get hard contrast? I'm gonna light his short side with a hard rim light. Anybody have experience with fitness/nude males?
How sexual do you want it? I think that getting all oiled up would make it more sexual which may be fine if that's what you want, but if you're trying to do for example more of a marble sculpture type of look then I would probably try hard lighting but dry skin.
Also personally I can just imagine it being pretty uncomfortable photographing a nude man, probably more so than working with nude women. So I guess try not to make it too uncomfortable for both of you.
I shot an event over the weekend. They had an area for fun photos while people hung out. That's where I met the only rude people there.
The lady told me to stand up higher and shoot down so I could get a flattering angle...I hesitated for a moment and then obliged.
Later once the alcohol kicked in her husband spilled wine on the dining room floor. He tried wiping it up with a napkin but was spilling more wine in the process. His friends were having a good laugh and I took a photo of it.
He got... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Studying photography, should you do it? I’ve seen a lot of people looking asking fellow Anons for their opinions on a photography degree on here. The reactions are always the same >waste of time >worthless degree >you can learn everything on YouTube yet none of these people actually studied photography or even know people that did. For that reason I’m going to try my best you give you a honest experience report of my time as a photography student.

>I’m interested in studying, what level of experience should I have? Keep in mind that all of this only be applied to the University I go to. The procedures or experiences may vary a lot in the university you apply.
Photography experience is certainly expected. Studying photography is no evening class on how to operate a camera. So you need to know how to work with a digital and analog camera (35mm). You also need to be able to take meaningful and well composed pictures. Most of the stuff in the RPT would’t make the cut, your... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>which University should I choose? I don’t know, do your research and do a lot of it. The bad name studying photography came from bad places and bad people. Art school is always greeted with smiles because everything calls itself art school to get as much money from hipsters as possible. Find out the big names in your country and don’t settle with less. If you are afraid that you aren’t good enough for that place, you probably aren’t so go out and practice. A degree from an obscure place won’t gain you anything. Do it right... Comment too long.

To ensure a particular level of skill and experience you have to apply with pictures rather than grades. You have to have a portfolio of around 20-25 pictures, so around 5 series. In addition to that you will get a homework from most of the universities I know. You’ll get one word and have to bring a series in your application based around that word (for example: the word was „home“ for me. Now you don’t necessarily have to take pictures of your home, but work around the word and create something... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2846238 >but anon these photos show nothing interesting
Post a nice landscape and /p/ will either love it, or argue about split toning, ETTR, or lens distortion/bad processing. Most of them are not able to get photos as a coherent series and have strange opinions on what a photo is supposed to look like.
