now that's a pro trick






one of the reasons I kept thinking about getting a 35mm is because I really do need to have more than one lens, but I had that prime disease where I would only consider primes acceptable, and thought 35 would be the ideal counterpart to a 135. it's just occurred to me, that it makes sense, if I do have such an insane love affair with my 135, but do need something else, I should get a mother fuckin zoom lens


I've now been looking at the 24-70mm f/2.8 style lenses. canon make one which is considered excellent, and sigma, which I am now in love with, also do one. pricey, of course, but, might mean I've got lenses to cover 99% of my use cases.

I've been thinking about it because someone today was talking to me about doing some indoor shoots. the 135 would be a challenge, and a 24-70 would give me every other option I would probably ever need.


jus thinking out loud here

getting some decent just accepted jesus into my heart vibes

itís good




went to a photo meetup on the weekend. it was awkward at times and the weather was overcast and dark and uninspiring BUT one of these cities leading boudoir photographers was there as a model and I got a few shots of her, and sheís never really had photos of herself before, and she said she was really stoked with the photos I took, said I made her feel much better about herself and I said well youíve done that for loads of other women so Iím glad someone could do it for you, and then she said I was good at what I do, which meant a lot coming from her

maybe Iím not totally poo poo lol. I had a shoot I was planning fall over when the (amateur) model bailed and in general (and I hear this is common everywhere) models are terrible communicators. anyway, Iím learning to not take it personally and just keep pressing forward because I know the people that do shoot with me always have good things to say, so I shouldnít give much weight to someone who hasnít even met me.

some dude who is fit and has tats approached me about getting some shots and so Iím gonna be shooting a dude soon. I asked if he wanted sexy shots and he said not really 😭 lol

Quit shakin' me, kid!

Lensrentals order arrived... kickin' the tires on the Canon R


Reds in full sun still require a bit of work in lightroom to fix.

F-in around indoors trying to adjust/get used to the focusing... Going from 9 AF points to a fullly guided experience is a bit of a trip.

I have the eosR and I love it

I usually flip between face/eye autofocus if thatís appropriate because it works well and single point in the middle focus, and do the thing where you focus on what you want and use back button focus and reframe

iíve never understood moving the focus point, unless I guess you had a very setup scene and didnít want to move the camera. moving the AF point for each photo feels very slow

also I ended up turning off touchscreen altogether coz i kept bumping it and moving focus point and it was a pain in the rear end, and unfortunately you canít turn that off by itself, have to turn touch off altogether :argh:


anyway hope you enjoy the autofocus on mirrorless because it blows dslr autofocus out of the water

MrQueasy posted:

looks like it was overexposed in the first place?



I am a bit saddened that they donít seem to have directly replaced the R with any of the R-number models: the 7 and 10 are a downgrade even if they have some newer features, the 5 is too much of an upgrade even tho itís a direct upgrade and the 6 is an weird sideways move

I personally think itís weird that each model has itís one weird set of controls and sets of features, and itís clear itís done for product differentiation, rather than creating the best possible cameras they can

the camera conspiracy youtube dude is kinda funny and this must be what he means by the canon cripple hammer, how some models might be intentionally lessened in some way to make sure you might go up a model or something

I should probably post about it in the motherfucker thread because itís a good example


even tho the R is a few years old now, I am still super happy with it.

Oh yes, that's a particularly confusing area of my yard for full-auto settings. Of what I've tried with that same spot, the iOS camera is the best at figuring out the deep green background and the super-saturated red. (But it cheats)

The Fuji I played with muted everything, and the canons I've used seem to just let the red clip completely while underexposing everything else.

The dual-pixel raw seemed to let me pull a lot of info back though...

Here's the unprocessed version... the camera was set to -1 stop and on the P mode.



Honestly, it just goes to highlight (lol) why shooting at midday is hard.

echinopsis
Apr 13, 2004



does make me wish for the higher dynamic range of the sonys, but tbh none of my real shooting should have such a high dynamic range that I'm balancing clipping highlights vs shadows anyway

i'm personally so wary of overexposure that I always lean towards underexposing


the new arri cameras apparently have a sensor that has so much dynamic range, and once you capture that data you can transform it so it simulates the highlight rolloff film would experience rather than just hard clipping


idk though. im still a baby. my new job is going to give me a couple days off during the week, and I look forward to finding some people to shoot on those days, because on the weekend it's always a bit of a compromise. ive found someone who wants to collab and do the 70s rollergirl shoot. I want to plan this one out well, nail the outfit, come with a bunch of poses planned. if the weather sucks, might do it again if the photos dont come out well, it's gonna be my magnum opium

found this couple images on insta and while I suppose I knew editing was important or whatever but here itís just so clear how much of a difference it can make and how ordinary the unedited image is


and not that I am really into that overedited look but drat, itís just interesting to see the contrast and to wonder how much more impressive my work could be if I could edit lol

lol thanks

at one stage I kind of a bit of revelation, because initially I kind of thought about photoshoots that they had to make sense, like, capturing something that may have been happening regardless of the camera

and then it kind of occurred to me that a photoshoot in of itself is enough of a reason to do something that makes no sense. it's all about the end result

and as a hobby it's fun, organise outfits, makeup, plan some looks, meet a new person, make some photos, have some photos at the end to say I did this

going through this set is an exercise in seeing sensor dust i missed cloning out. why did it take until the a7r4 to make a shutter that could stay closed while changing lenses. worst part of switching to mirrorless, after the lovely battery life from this era of sonys

boat captain was playing the jurassic park theme this entire time. sad it wasn't the MGS theme instead, even though we were near fox island, not the much further west fox archipelago



not the best pic of the glacier itself but i like the float ice curve



ooh, a reflection



no idea where the level horizon actually should be on this



consolation prize for everything still being brown in much of the area was the famously often cloud-obscured mountain was not



bonus birb, which is not particularly notable except that it's at 35mm and the one piece of wildlife i wasn't lamenting not having the 110mm lens i want yet. that birb did not give any fucks



that said i have no idea how any of the people on the boat with teles where hitting anything half the time. even keeping 35mm stable-ish was a challenge

I missed focus on the kid because I didn't realize that hitting the trash can button would reset the autofocus to the middle. Still, I like the composition here.


Also a little soft, but :shrug:

fuckin cool cave mate. nice shots




a friend of mine posted a photo with a heavy color transform, and made me realise I need to get on that bandwagon lol. in fact I've always been a sucker for film emulation and color grading, I think what holds me back is my own sense of "is that too much?" and maybe I need to step back for 5 minutes then come back to it, because heavily color graded images from others kinda stand out once you know what youre looking for, but they don't look bad


also mucking around with making photos "matte", and while I've known about raised blacks, I had been doing it the "easy" way and just raising the black point, and it's worked, but it wasn't that great, but after hearing a dude call them "matte" it made me realise that is what it looks like, as if the photo has a matter finish, and started playing around with a few things, if I raise the luminance in the shadows of the color grader does that work? no.. what about a smoother tone curve... yep

thanks to covid I have to the time and motivation to make this

idk about you fellas but I reckon the bottom left looks quite nice

even if you want raised black levels doing it that way just limits what you can do on the high end to limit peaking, since you're making the starting point above zero

agreed it's basically vital to mess with curves though, i usually do every channel + luma if i need to (although that's probably overkill). everything i've posted has been rather heavily color graded

a random trick a photographer taught me is to crank the saturation, and then you can fiddle around with the color temp and really see how well you're nailing it and making the skin it's natural colour

ironically I think it makes pictures feel a little bit cool, but I think that's because of being so used to slightly warm images. I often go and warm them after a touch, but it makes for a good starting point

same with the colour calibration in lightroom. this seems like a popular thing to play with these days, and so I crank the saturation so I can really see the impact my color changes are having, then reduce saturation to where it's good


these are my methods. they are not good, but they are mine
