What is the absolute best camera I can get for a drone? Sorry I dont frequent this board, my first time ever comin here. For reference I'd like to be able to have the same clarity as the drone shots in the vid embedded. thanks for any other drone advice/knowledge. I want to get one soon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwOVcdeD7L4
>>2841543 Honest question here, what do you actually get out of starting a thread like this? Does it somehow make you feel good to make a couple of strangers argue the same thing over and over again? Does it somehow improve your life?
Does anybody on /p/ have experience with LED hot lights for still photography?
I'm switching camera brands, and rather than buy a bunch of speedlights again, I was thinking an LED setup that would also work for video interviews would be a cool idea. I'll be using the lights mostly for portraits and cosplay photography, and they'll be close to the subject, so I don't need a ton of power, just soft and even light. My budget for a two light kit is around $1k max.
I was looking at these Fiilex P100s at FilmTools the other day and they seem like they might be a pretty cool option, they're tiny, battery powered, and output around what a 100w strobe does. I figure I can shoot them through my existing pair of 24" softboxes.
>>2841610 I was shooting portraits with 1-2kW Arri hotlights and Chimera softboxes for a long time because it was the only thing I could easily rent till I got my first Elinchrom strobe set. Continuous lighting for portraiture fucking sucks, even with Arris. The amount of power you'd need to compare even to small strobes is ridiculous. I'd decide what field (stills or video) is more important for you at the moment and then go with that kind of lighting. these kind of compromises suck
with the rise of feminism in the infestation of liberals in the art world, photography in particular is riddled with fat sjw's "challenging" society through their works. when composing an image, what are you trying to communicate? something about you as a person? something about your world view? something about the subject in the photo?
if so, do you ever feel like you're being over dramatic?
I'm having the same problem at least in London in the photo fine art realm. If you're not black or trans or a lesbian or something you're work is just glanced over. This is Anonymous but what I'm considering doing becoming like a cross dressing "trap" just to get my work out there, it's fucked but its going to get me massive do a few shoots pandering to it, grow then change my style up to what I want. I've been struggling for like 2 years.
I'm discontent with the low light performance with my t3i. Looking to upgrade to a 6D but I don't feel as if I take enough pictures to justify the purchase. Now that school is coming to a close and I'll have more time for the summer, I plan on taking a lot more pictures before I ditch the t3i. However I don't just want to go around aimlessly taking pictures. Is there a way I can do this systematically? I was thinking about going to a different neighborhood in my city each time, and taking landscapes/architecture on day and portraits of locals on another day. Any other ideas? Also thoughts on 6D as an upgrade from t3i?
>>2840143 I'm guessing, if pic is related, you're in NYC.
If you can't just go out and find interesting things to shoot in the city or by exploring as far as you can using the NYCT System - then you aren't trying hard enough. Just get out there. Or decide on a theme to work on and do it.
Post a short series of photos that are tied together by something, tell us about them, offer critique, ask questions, this is the antidote to dropping your work into the sea of image spam that is the RPT. This thread will only be as useful as YOU make it anon.
>>2840044 >>2840049 These are a redo of a picture I took with a cellphone a few years ago that I always wished was better, obviously the reflection of the shore and the sky is the main thing tying these together but I actually went a little further with the reflecting theme by horizontally reflecting all of them in processing. Not because it really adds anything to the image for you, but because I find that it helps to look at pictures in a new way when editing. Do you guys have any mental tricks that you use when editing? I know it is fairly common for people to almost finish then leave a picture alone for a few hours and do something else before coming back to it for a fresh look.
I'm going on holiday soon and I was wondering, should I take my camera?
1. I don't like looking like a tourist and sticking out 2. I don't like taking photos of landmarks, I prefer living in the moment 3. It would be nice to have photos of memories 4. Might catch some nice shots
What do you think? Are cameras on holiday for plebs and old people?
>>2838642 Nothing today. But if I don't have anything to shoot, and the clouds look interesting, I typically go out driving until I find a decent enough looking landscape shot to do a shoot 30 minute timelapse that equates to around 30 seconds worth of video.
I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II with whatever lens fits my needs at the moment.
I've been shooting concerts (got a concert this Monday) and portraiture type work (I've got two girls ready to model for me anytime; just waiting on my 85mm lens)... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My Sony 90mm SEL90M28G FE was in my camera bag when it took a tumble from approximately a 1 ft height. It wasn't severe. It fell from my center arm rest in my car to the floor of the backseat, right on top of the raised middle portion where the drivetrain is. So it's approximately a 1ft fall, and it was in the padded camera bag with other gear.
Ever since, the lens auto-focus motor is constantly churning away when I am on the AF setting. Even when its focused, the motor just keeps making noise and it's making video recording a huge fucking pain in the ass... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2836802 If the return policy expired 2 days ago. Call them up and see if they'll still take it, you never know. Or if you could come up with some lie as to how you tried to contact them but couldn't for some reason.
Other than that, you could always try to manually pull focus on video. I do a lot of video, and I would never trust auto focus on the subject. Seriously, just work on your focus pulling, it's a skill you need to have
