i absolutey guarantee you will regret your decision
get a useful degree while simply taking photographs, studying from plenty of sources online, and looking through photobooks
hell, study sociology or philosophy. literaly anything but photography. by all means pursue a career as a photographer but dont waste the value of a degree on something that will literally tell everyone you are an idiot for going $30-40k in debt for a piece of paper that says photography on it.
>>2801181 Major in journalism or business, minor in photography. Make the connections, and still get a useful skill so you can actually put your photography to use. Photography by itself leaves you really good at working a camera, while also working at Best Buy.
My DSLR progression was 50, 90, and now 700 is my main body. The 50 doesn't get much action any more but its a great camera. I was disappointed when Nikon dumbed down the entry level range - no top LCD, hiding most controls in menu's etc. Give me a D50/70/90 any day.
OK, so... How do you get your photos the best level of critique and/or sharing opportunity /p?
I've used flickr for years, but it's so desperately bad now; and i can't take another bullshit comment with some generic banner, 20 gold stars, and glittery gif of a cat, and a link to some group consisting of swamp donkeys and hoopsniffers.
>>2801063 Critique? /p/ and reddit are pretty good, so long as you present photos in the correct way. That is to say, only present your best photos, that you know are good enough to warrant critique. Present them in a humble self aware way, in your own thread, specifically asking for critique. State what you are proud of in each photo, and discuss your goals for the image, etc.
For viewing, instagram, flickr, reddit. Getting your stuff seen is a tough battle when there are a million other people out there trying for the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Anyone take pics with a GoPotato? I love mine but since I left in a rush for a mountain biking trip this weekend I left my camera gear at home. All I have is my hero4 black. Inspiration please, before I have a breakdown.
Why did you choose to be a photographer when it doesn't bring in prestige, wealth, fame and the qt3.14s? Is it because you are not intellectually gifted? If you are then you will be a quantum physicist, a medical scientist or an inventor. Is it because you are not physically gifted? Because if you are you might be an actor or an athlete or even a model. Is it because you are not creative enough? If you are you are already a painter, animator, writer, film director or even a graphic artist. Is it because you are not charismatic or have social skills? If you are you have already a business or be a lawyer or a politician.
Most photographers are mediocre human beings who just want to earn a quick buck by having FIRST NAME, LAST NAME PHOTOGRAPHY. Face it /p/, being a photographer is easy as fuck. Society considers photographers as having the same par with managers of a fast food chain. Meaning they didn't amount to anything. I know most of you are lowlifes who wasn't able to fulfill their childhood dreams due to being lazy or not good enough in general so good thing there's photography right?
It's a dreadful mistake to make career decisions based solely on money or fame, as you clearly do. These are both entirely pointless aims in and of themselves. So you make all the money - but it's worthless unless you have something to spend it on. It's just a means to an end. Now, you could spend your money on conspicuous consumption, which is just a vain attempt to exchange your cash for social standing, or you could put in the hours in exchange for having the cash to enable you to do things you truly enjoy in your time off. Travelling, fixing vintage cars,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Guys, I don't know if any of you had to deal with copyright issues but I hope you will help me.
I've been writing an article on historical people and used their pictures/photos. The editorial guideline makes it obligatory to provide a source site for them so whenever I couldn't find it on a public online encyclopedia like Wiki I used random news site using this photo.
The latest picture dates back to 30s/20s and there's no way it's not publicly available. But the editor requires me too prove that some of the sites I listed are in public... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The Russian Federation recognizes copyright for a duration of 50 years from the death of the author, or 50 years from the date of publication if the identity of the author is not known. That photo is from 1921, so if the identity of the author is known, he/she could conceivably have lived through to 1966; and in any case, there might be a matter of copyright attached to the scan itself.
Try to use things that you can prove to be in the public domain, like works of the US government.
You research skills are frighteningly weak for someone who write.

The file structure on your home computer points to a different place on the school computer. If I make a catalog that sources photos from a USB drive 'F' on my PC, take that catalog and USB to another PC where the USB is now drive 'G', it won't work. It needs to be the same exact file structure. The fact that you're working across two different ecosystems is hard enough.
Is this a problem with the lab? film? camera? scan? I just started shooting film, and have taken solid photos using this camera before. Would it be worth taking the negatives to a better lab and having them look at them?
Second roll. The photos don't seem badly exposed, and they all have different problems, some have a terrible red cast, others blue. Some are well exposed but have huge scratches or lines over them. All have massive problems with noise and dust.
Hi everyone, I just finished selecting the pictures I'm going to send over to my photography school with a wad of cash to bribe the provisor and get accepted. I had to produce 5 images on the theme of, pretty much, colour. (I can't really translate it exactly) I chose to work with a yashica mat 124g and some expired Portra 160, here are the results.
