this one is very nice

good lighting, nice background, well composed, good dog. remove the dog and it would still be a good photo, or put the dog in front of something else, and it'd still be good, too

throwing pity parties is his other thing

luckily he has other things as well - it's a lot more fun for everyone when he leans into them instead

fwiw echi, i think your inspiration photos mostly suck, but i enjoy the photos you yourself take. i remember some mountain landscapes you took that were rather cool. i also enjoy hearing you talk about the lifted black stuff and all that, because i know literally nothing about post-processing and dont know where to get started or anything.

anyway, Universal Control broke, so im gonna hit post on this and will post some pics in a minute

i shot this with a pentax q, it is literally the smallest interchangeable lens system camera



smaller sensors are fine

here is a photo of a cat



and this is at 100%


the autofocus and general quality of this lens is top notch.

I used to think cameras needed big megapixels to compensate for how rubbish they looked at 1:1 but turns out I just had average lens

yeah, I'm probably going to stick with aps-c for my next camera in large part because the lenses are so much smaller and lighter and for the pictures I take it's not a big deal

i find the lifted blacks thing kind of funny because yeah it's mimicking "film", but really it's mimicking badly scanned film, but it doesn't really even matter anyways. there's lots of mavica photos posted in this thread and lots of chatter online about zoomers getting really into digital point and shoots, not even the shittiest ones, but it's just yearning for some nostalgia of an imagined past. like the bad scans themselves become nostalgic because people experience film through that perspective, regardless of their "authenticity" of how film actually looks, the same way people imagine the 60s as sort of a colorless faded wasteland because they experience things through photo albums decades later that were printed on unstable mediums. it's cool sometimes i guess but after a while it just feels like a surface-level visual communication of nostalgia without anything backing it up

like at some point i imagine people will be nostalgic for fake scanlines on cgi'd-in television sets in media set in the 80s but filmed in the 2020s instead of actual tube tvs

whether or not it's mimicking film, I like raised blacks because it makes an image look like it's printed on a matte surface, it makes it "smoother", easier on the eyes

yeah there's definitely something to mimicking the print itself. that guy does it a bit too far for me and it just reads as "using the same lightroom presets" instead of a careful application per-image to suit it

it's actually pretty cool to print images and scan them back in, definitely gives that look in a very natural feeling way

i had to crop little jones out (basically he's to the left of that bubble), but i would love any tips yall have on composition and stuff. all i know how to do is rule-of-thirds - beyond that i just take pictures of stuff i like and kind of hope it works out.

like, would this be better if i cropped some of that vertical space out so that the buddha head is gone, at the expense of poodle jones's tail? or maybe if there was just less stuff other than the bubblechomp? i'm not sure

maybe something like

Man, I hate that smoothness. It aestheticizes the image, and removes any of the emotional weight or content. It makes it about the presentation, rather than the content.

here’s the thing though, the other picture of the dog is the one the owner enjoys the most and is the one that is more memorable.

im far more inclined to shoot photos that are “people pleasers”, rather than try to take what other photographers would consider a good photo

at one point, i was on the other side of the enclosure and there were dozens of people watching him. there was a beautiful candid shot of them watching him set up, but before i could take the photo they all moved on to the lookout that I was in. little jones spent the next like 15 minutes complaining about "why did those rude people move and ruin your picture" and had a hard time accepting "they didn't do anything wrong, sometimes it just doesn't work out" as an answer
