The Photography Thread

Recommended Posts

This thread is so awesome I feel kinda lame posting anything to it. A couple digital point and shoot shots from a recent trip to Seattle:

My husband and son in the Seattle Public Library.

 

There's a section in the middle of the building that is entirely red, it's pretty awesome:

There's a hiking trail near where I live that takes you up to a cliff covered in ancient petroglyphs:

This is several exposures using a half-frame camera to make a panorama. On the right you can see some petroglyphs of animals.

I bought an original 5D recently. enjoying the full frame. good thing, too, cuz I shot the Houston Marathon in the cold and rain, so now my 2 T1i's are toast. sent them back to Canon.

Yeah that's a lot of peoples life.

No offense, but it (photos) is not interesting if there isn't something 'new' or 'original' about it,

if you want an advice: shoot less, and make the effort to think about what exactly you think is good about a picture.

think about what you want your photos to show & look like.

they will be much more powerful i presume!

x-post from the Day in Pies thread:

 

Interesting story about this guy. I met him in that plaza in La Piedad (Michoacan, Mexico).

He said his name was Octavio and he was 98 years old.

He walks that plaza everyday before lunch.

He claimed to have been 7-10 years old when he camped out with Pancho Villa at

the Battle of Ciudad Juarez (1911). He said he would bring water, food, and candy to the

soldiers at their camp. I really don't know if his story was true, but I like to believe that it was.

 

This was def one of my fav portraits & photos that I've ever taken.

I'm the guy real photographers complain about for not knowing what the fuck an ISO is or how lens flare happens. Sorry. Most of my "work" is with a little point and shoot. But I take a ton of pictures. Feedback would be appreciated.

Not to be a dick, but the best feedback you're going to get is to do a bunch of reading so you do understand what the fuck an ISO is and all of the other basics of shutter speed, aperture, depth of field, light metering, etc. Generally folks in here are very helpful at answering questions/offering advice, but if you come out and admit you know nothing, there isn't much motivation for us to offer advice when you should just be digging through all of the useful, basic, starter info on the internet. Without the basics, any advice we offer up is more or less useless because it isn't going to mean anything to you.

Marco, those tacos look delicious.

 

Nothing special as far as photography goes, but I love my dogs. Boxer and an American Bulldog-Pit mix (both rescues).

That's not being a dick, you're probably right dude. I've been meaning to spend more time on the technical stuff but just haven't put it at as high a priority as I should. Noted.

Yeah. Do a fair bit of reading on the basics, shoot a lot, do more in depth reading to improve on things you're struggling with, shoot a lot more, repeat, repeat, repeat. The more photos you take, the more mistakes/successes you will have and the more comfortable you're going to be getting the photo you want instead of just the photo that the camera is producing for you in full auto, or however you've been shooting.

 

Don't be afraid to shoot the same photo a handful (or a whole bunch) of times with various settings/angles/framing/etc. Then, assuming you have access to a program that shows exif data, look at that information when you're reviewing your photos and figure out what is and isn't working for specific photos. With a bit of reading and practice, you'll quickly start seeing how you can shoot the same photo, from the same angle, with the same framing and simply by changing some of your settings/focal points/etc, end up with drastically different photos. Or how a slight change to your angle or framing can absolutely make or break a photo.

 

Most of this info is assuming you have manual exposure options. If not, and you're semi serious about doing photography, there are a shitload of cheap, starter options I'm sure we can throw out to you to get the ball rolling.
