    I got myself that exact set up a couple months ago and its been amazing as my first DSLR. I'd recommend it purely based off my good experience with it thus far as a complete amateur.

    So I'm in the Navy and recently got stationed on a tiny uninhabited island about 70 miles off the coast of California, exploring and taking pictures out here has been absolutely incredible.

    Hey thanks, I have the Sony A6000 and I think for all of these I used the Sigma 30mm f2.8 lens.

    I like the first two too, but I can't help but notice the vignette. Maybe a tad too strong?

    Oh, I use it in every picture I do. Just thinking that in those particular pictures, it might suit them to be a little softer.

    The other issue is, you tend you edit your pictures on one screen, but you've no idea how it might look elsewhere. I've quite often edited stuff at home, uploaded it and then looked at it at work or something. Suddenly find the vignette that I thought was quite subtle is like a damn border. :tear:

    Was at a tattoo convention over the weekend. Quite pleased with this.

    And how best do I share pictures in here from Flickr? It's always a mess when I do it!

    Hey guys need a little help. When I was abroad in London for a semester I had a black and white film photography class. We used the old Cannon 35mm AE1 cameras from like the 70's (i think). Do you know a reputable site to purchase one or should I try to go to a store?

    pretty sure I have an AE I don't use very often.

    Hey man - It's only been like a year and a half, but thanks for the kind words. Fun to come across folks who are familiar with my work in different places! Have you moved back to the PNW yet?

    I'm shooting on a Canon 6d w/ canon EF 35mm f/2. Occasionally will borrow lenses from friends, but I like to keep my setup minimal.

    Here's my stuff:

    Sorry for my sheer ignorance but I have a question. Don't judge if it is completed silly but I swear there's a reason i'm asking. Is there a camera that is capable of instant Polaroids but ALSO saving these digitally to maybe an SD card or the camera at the same time?

    I'm not a photographer however I'm looking to take a few pictures for family purposes but also a "project" that i'm going to be doing. If not, can anyone recommend a good, relatively cheap polaroid camera?

    Many thanks in advance and sorry once again if this is a completely silly request.

    Is it silly to buy a brand new camera if you’re just getting in to photography? Are there any drawbacks to purchasing a gently used dslr?

    I don't think it's silly to buy new if you can afford it. If you decide it's not for you it would be a little easier to sell I would think.

    The only drawbacks to used would maybe be warranty and maybe not knowing if everything is clean or working correctly. Also, if you decide to really stick with it then you might find yourself wanting something new

    Sorry for bumping older posts, but how much of this is done in post? Looking to get into more nature photography (mostly hiking), and like the sort of gritty-like pictures. What do you use software wise?

    I bought a used mirrorless body off of eBay and it’s got a couple scuffs but works great. Also got it for like a grand less than market price that way. I’d say used is more than fine if you’re just getting into it, especially since you’ll probably want to upgrade when you know more about how you like to shoot.

    No worries, and with those its just adding some vignetting, and playing with the saturation and contrast.

    I just took these of my wife the other night... having only one light makes it tough for portraits (Alienbee 800 and softbox)
