Photography Thread Mk. New Board

Ive found in time the search on this forum was shit but if you google whatever keywords with the word hipinion, you get what you're looking for most of the time. I mean even when they keywords aren't exact.

My girlfriend's dad asked for a camera recc for under a thousand, is a Pentax K70 a good pick? Also thought I'd mention the xt1 or the a6300. I haven't used any of these personally but they all seem to have a good rep around here.

He hasn't had a new interchangeable lens camera in probably decades and he's not looking for something brand new.

K-70 is solid. X-T1 and A6300 are also good, but if he wants an optical finder... well, not so good.

hey does anyone here have experience selling prints? I've never really looked into it until now and I don't really know what I'm looking for. Ideally a service that lets me ship international and lets me ship straight to the buyer from the printer but I'm open to suggestions

I've recently done some light, very informal freelance work for a local weekly newspaper, and they recently reached out and gave me reason to believe I'll have more work from them in the future. does anyone have experience with this type of thing and/or know if ownership rights are something that I need to clarify or negotiate for? or is there some standard? this is my first time receiving money for photos so I don't know what's what.

hi sorry i'm sure this has been covered but could you skillful folk link me to any books/websites/resources that would be great for a beginner photographer? Maybe having an eye for framing etc is inherent, but I was gifted a decent camera and would like to at least try and make the most of it.

would recommend just buying a camera that fits your budgets and feels good in your hands and then start tinkering around with it. there's no wrong way to do it and a million ways to confide yourself into something that isn't you.

some inspirational (and less technical books) I would recommend (heavily photojournalism biased):

Dorchester Days by Eugene Richards - https://www.amazon.com/Dorchester-Days-Eugene-Richards/dp/0714840017/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1504372020&sr=8-2-fkmr0&keywords=fatbaby+eugene+richards

The Fat Baby by Eugene Richards -https://www.amazon.com/Fat-Baby-Eugene-Richards/dp/071484196X/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1504372020&sr=8-4-fkmr0&keywords=fatbaby+eugene+richards


The Suffering of Light by Alex Webb - https://www.amazon.com/Alex-Webb-Suffering-Geoff-Dyer/dp/1597111732/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1504372029&sr=8-1&keywords=the+suffering+of+light

And this is always good to surf through archives for inspiration: http://www.poyi.org/

Have fun!

Hey Hipinion,

Been working on a multimedia project (photo & video) about a graduate student working on the plasma treatment of soybean seeds in order to help promote agriculture in order to help feed 9 billion people. His project is a finalist for the National Geographic Chasing Genius contest that gives winners a $25k grant in order to further their ideas. I produced a video for his entry and I'm hoping he can win. If anything of you have spare time, please view the video and vote here -- http://www.natgeochasinggenius.com/video/1497

Thanks All!

two suggestions I'll make are going out with a specific exercise in mind (e.g. I want to shoot blues against yellows) and making a zine. the latter I think is particularly helpful because you can comb through your archives and see what themes or ideas or styles recur and build a throughline that way. you don't even have to print it, I find the critical re-eval and sequencing process to be stimulating enough in its own right.

also maybe remind yourself your eye is sharp and your shit is good and boarder dcm on hpn is a big fan.

my way of getting myself to keep shooting was to come up with an absurdly big project. i found a state gov website that maps out every single thing that's heritage protected and now i'm travelling around trying to shoot every single one (with exceptions like a wing of a still-in-use prison). i've gone from a creative lull to shooting more than ever and i'm discovering a shitton of cool places i never knew about while i'm at it

3 seconds - the couple I tried higher than that had cooler motion blur but the makeshift tripod I'd made out of the stuff in my bag wasn't exactly stable

hi beautiful babies.

Curious about how you deal with digital grain. Most of the time I think fuck it, but I also become really distracted by the digital highs and their crunchiness and have worked on a few grain profiles to give it a softer appearance.

I do a lot of film, too, so that probably will always give me this unreal comparison on levels of comfort with the final image, but just seeing how some of you were dealing with it (especially those of you who photo for publication or large prints).

Thanks. Honestly I recently switched over to Fuji and their digital grain profile was a big selling point for me. Was never really able to achieve something desirable in post before (but I'm admittedly not the most advanced editor).

thanks! i dont know much about grain. there's a grain setting in lightroom and sometimes i crank it up and sometimes i don't! it still doesn't "look" like film though. i used to use vsco filters and they were really heavy on the grain but i lost those plugins for lightroom so i now do fairly light editing on my pix and generally don't muck with artificial grain.
