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

    Yeah not even going to pretend like I don't use it way too much, aesthetically its just what I dig, but im trying to wean myself off it haha.

    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?
  16. Taketimeandfind


    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)




    Baby due A WEEK FROM TODAY! :D

    So this was sort of asked before but: I'm looking at buying a used mirrorless camera, something in the Sony A series. But as an almost beginner is there going to be a huge difference, enough to justify the price, between the A5000, A5100, and A6000?

    Have you checked out comparisons like this or this? If higher frame rates, ISO, or megapixel count matters (they’re all pretty close anyway), you’re probably okay getting whichever one is a better deal when you’re looking.

    That being said, the a6000 was my first mirrorless and I think it’s pretty awesome. It’s the only one out of those with a viewfinder, which for me is a must have.

    I second the recommendation of the a6000, I love mine, and if you look around you can usually find a great deal on it.

    I need a camera recommendation. Something better than my iphone but fairly simple to operate. Taking pictures of food primarily and something to take on vacations. I don’t want to spend a lot of money, my iphone just isn’t cutting it.

    What is your price range? I have a Canon 80D DSLR, and I keep it on auto, 'cause I'm a newb, and it takes great pictures, but it set me back $1,200, as I do a good amount of traveling and am into nature/landscape photography, and want to grow into the features on the camera over time. So based on what you said you can get something that still great shots, but probably at half the price or so
