Kindly leave your ego at the door. Posting short films/scripts or other work you've done is encouraged. We tend to use and recommend DSLRs/mirrorless cameras because they provide phenomenal picture quality for their price, have large sensors (ie the same size used in high-end cinema cameras and higher) and have interchangeable lenses. In contrast, consumer camcorders normally have much smaller sensors and a fixed lens.

Another new thing is that we'll have 3 themes that you can chose from. Two will be concept oriented themes while the third will be something more straight forward.
• Theme No. 1:
>hideout/safe-space/comfy-zone Go to the place that makes you feel cozy inside, protected or that's just your number one spot to relax and feel at ease. Bonus points for writing a little bit about why that place is something special to (you)! Just in case "desk" is your answer - pictures that emit comfy vibes are also allowed. So, get comfy!
• Theme No. 2:
>Communication Whatever you seem fitting for this, lads. Think about the different ways in which people communicate!
• Theme No. 3:
>Street Musicians This is the straightforward thing. Get out there and support your local street musicians. Tip these fuckers, buy a coffee for them and take their photo. Bonus points if you can deliver some back-story on them. Context matters to a photo.
• Submit an image in this thread that you've taken that adheres to the theme • Multiple images allowed, please limit it to 3 or less. • Please don't post specifically asking for critique, post that in the Recent Photo Thread /rpt/ • Submit something taken in the two weeks!
This month's challenge will start today, on the 5th of February and will end on the 29th of February at midnight (CET - UTC+1). (I know - it's not a whole month - I've been drunk the last couple of days.)
what the fuck is color scienceand how do i apply to my snapshitsPrint website recommendations?Hello /p/, /hist/ here. I'm looking for a website that will ship large, high quality prints of famous paintings that I can frame and hang in my house. Preferably one that won't break the bank.No titleUp front, maybe I'm retarded, but I'm having some trouble editing photos I took with my Pixel 3.
I took the photos and then opened them up on my laptop so I could see larger, truer to size image, but when I saw the photo on my laptop the resolution seemed to be much, much worse. At first I thought it was just because I was seeing the bigger image and zooming in more, but then I magnified to a signpost with sharp lettering and it was clear that I'm missing something or it's being compressed somewhere along the way.
The metadata is the same on my phone as well as the picture on my Chromebook, and I looked at edited and unedited photos.
All I wanted to do is bump the exposure, contrast, highlights, and saturation a little.
Pic related is an example. It looks nowhere near as sharp as what's on my phone.

Nikon lensesHi guys! I have a Nikon D5300 with a Nikkor lens AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G but I would like to improve it. I use my camera for cosplay/model shoots so I mostly take portraits,do you have any suggestion for a good lens?
/p/ books threadIm trying to grow my book collection. Rn I’m waiting for Barthes “Camera Lucinda”. I’m also interested in books about color science, their meanings and psychological connotations.

Which one to buy first and in what order(if all are great)? Do they overlap a lot? Also literature,theory thread.
No titleI unironically think white borders usually make photos better. I think that it creates this blank barrier that makes the colors in the photo seem more consonant. inb4 "the photo should be able to stand on its own" well of course it should, but if you think about it, no matter how you post or frame a photo its going to be surrounded by some color, I think the white borders do a good job of being neutralNo titleLeica thread.
Because we should have our own space away from the gadget fetishists.Hello World
I am an amateur photographer who takes mostly portraits and the occasional travel photos. I don't really have any friends who are into photography so I don't have anyone who I can share my photos with and enjoy banter or constructive criticism or get advice from.
I'd like to have some of those for some photos I took and hopefully I will learn something good or what I am doing wrong during this thread.
We had one before but only two of us showed up, maybe we'll have more luck if we try again? https://archive.nyafuu.org/p/thread/3350906/#q3353833Some portraits I tookI am reposting some of my favs. And then I will post new pics.
/gst/ Gear Storadge ThreadShare projects, ideas and way of storing gear, film etc. So ill start. I have this case i got from a friends and it came with this shitty foam, i want to make some dividers for it and have a ton of different lenses so its gonna be diy. Do any of guys what specific type of foam is used in these cases as i read that the sound dampening stuff starts disintegrating when in an unventilated environment.Feedback? First 6 months with a film cameraHi Hej Hola
I'm travelling and taking pictures since forever, but never got something better than a Canon 60D. I know nothing about gear pretty much. The camera died, so I decided to try the Foca Sport of my grandfather, then the Minolta X300 of my father. Everything in B&W to re-learn the process.
What I'm posting is 300dpi scans of physical photos. Naturally, there's slightly less nuance and sharpness. I am not developing myself. About the films, I used two Ilford Delta 100, one Ilford Delta 400 and one Kodak 400 Tmax, the last one being the best in my opinion.
Travelling to the south, need a guide cam wiseI'm from Chile and for my 21st birthday I'm going to Valdivia - beautifull city. I want to take good pictures with a proper camera (The camera that I've got is from 1991 and has a semi broken lense, so that's not an option) for my trip. I'm as close as an amateur - or perhaps even less - to what it gets to photography. I just broke with my girlfriend in a really painfull manner and well, I want to make this trip count. Even tho I'm not going with her as I planned, I wanna have a good time and take some nice pictures to remember. Any suggestions? My budget is close to 300.000-400.000 CLP so 373 to 497 dollars.
Also, that's one of the pics I took some years ago. Nothing fancy and nothing so shitty it would be guessed it was made by a 5 year old with tardive diskinesia.

I've always just gone without it and instead tried to always grab pics at low ISO, but sometimes it just doesn't work out because things move and you have to take shorter exposures.
Anyway a free trial caught my eye and I tried it on the hardest thing I have - starry night with lots of noise. I'm pretty impressed, but this one costs $80 and only works standalone. I think it looks great but need some other opinions, I know nothing about what's out there.
Btw I develop in Aperture, not Photoshop or Lightroom. Most plugins work in Aperture but not all.

Erasable filmHey /p/! I was reading a Roman history book a while back and shortly thereafter, my industrious self was struck with boredom. Then, I remembered a little tidbit from that tome: Romans used wax melted onto wood as erasable notepads. Delighted by such a design, I made quick work in a week to make it with melted paraffin candles and a plank of wood. Now, while admiring my handiwork before my departure from waking consciousness, I contrived an idea! That my design, if silver nitrate is added to it in a darkroom, should result in an erasable film photo. Do have a go, as I don’t have any such room myself.

Does Epson still manufacturer the AC adapter for these scanners.I figured out a way to make smartphones as good as DSLRs!!!!!The main problem has always been the sensor size. And so far all their attempts with sensor arrays has been the same shit, all the cameras are facing in 90º to the smartphone back, and they don't give a good result.
But I thought a good way to make a sensor array work.
First, each individual sensor in the array would have a tele lens.
Then the array would be placed on a flexible mount that can make the array go from flat to convex and also to concave.
If you need a wide angle, make the array go convex. Then you merge all the individual images into a single one. The camera would resize the image automatically, decreasing the SNR.
If you need a tele, you make the array go concave, this would require some sync with AF. Then all the small cameras would focus on to the same area. When you merge all the images of the same area, could decrease the SNR./fgt/ - Film General Threadhome developing edition
