Maybe get a small bag for your camera? You could make a little photo project of photographing reflections you see in everyday life creatively.
Man I wish it was easy to become well known
on that note it's my goal to one day get to a point where i'm a moderately well known photographer
have a loooooong way to go to get there though
Street photographer Eric Kim recently posted a list of 100 tips for photography, some cool stuff to keep in mind.

Besides that nice list, can someone give me a few pointers in photography?
I'm getting a higher-end Point and Shoot (Equal capability DSLR was out of price range, and can't afford extra lenses yet). I plan on buying a small tripod, GorillaPod maybe.
Anyways, does anyone have any pointers so I don't get noisy, blurred messes? I know to keep the ISO as low as possible to avoid static, and the lower shutter speed normally means less blur but a bit more dark.
Should I keep the ISO on auto?
lower your aperture if you can, if you're just using a point and shoot that might not be an option though...
if you're still having blur/noise issues, idk what to tell you, point and shoots are probably better at autofocus (never tried to manual focus one) and make sure you don't leave your macro setting on while using it for normal shots
also @pickwickian, yeah that actually gave me a bit of a reminder that i'm not gonna get any better by just sitting here, but i'm supposed to be working on my assignment(was supposed to get a fair bit of it done over the holidays, did absolutely none of it..) and school starts tomorrow
I could go out and get the shots I want right now, or I could continue the work I just started a bit ago and not get myself into shit tomorrow(i'll still get into it anyway, but less so).. it's a bit of a trade off
of course posting on facepunch probably isn't helping, but i'm using it as a bit of a source (along with flickr and other various sites atm) for some of the research on it, trying to find similar images and some other things
I don't know what advice to give now that Kodak's gone bust.
it's a shame really, they made some nice point and shoot cameras with lots of settings considering
If you can pick that Kodak up cheaper and still have a full warranty on it, go for it.
If not, look at others with similar specs. Olympus and Nikon make some nice pseudo-DSLR point and shoots.
Got it for $138. Free technically, it was a birthday gift.
That tip list was nice, expect the one where he says 'Print your photos, that'll make you happy'. It'll eat my wallet and I'll be sad.
Are there any shots I just shouldn't take? Like, my phone is loaded with random pictures of things ranging from the cheese aisle at Publix, to a dog taking a dump in someones yard.
My phone was my only camera until recently.
Take photos of anything you like... it's up to you... you'll filter out the terrible ones when it's time to share the ones you're proud of.
should take low angle macro shots of the dog's shit with the sun low on the horizon in the background
that'd look both cool and disgusting
make the shit the landscape
Shot handheld, but at ISO HI1, hence the meganoise.
Not creative photography so I'm putting this in the OT.
damn, I really do wish to see an aurora one day, I imagine they're quite the sight
do you have a higher resolution of that one dude?
I think my error is taking photography as not much more than a hobby when I have the tools to start seriously learning it.
Problem is, the only places that teach photography here are like, courses and colleges. The courses are expensive as fuck and I'm still not in college.
So I am contemplating taking out a loan for a refurbished MKII
I want to start my own business of sorts as there are hardly any good photographers in my area. Having a full frame as well as my current pentax k-x should be a good start on it.
Gonna try to do some business with a local photographer later on today and see how I can perhaps get my foot in the door.
been doing editing for a video, i just discovered pluraleyes and it's saved my fucking life honestly.
Just because the theory says this, doesn't mean it always looks good, etc.
it's sort of like learning an instrument, instructions can help but the only way you "learn" it is by actually doing it yourself
you can't just watch instructions and do nothing, that doesn't achieve anything etc.
So I've only used a few rolls of B&W film and I wanna try out my ME Super with color. Any suggestions on which brand of color film to get? And I can still get negatives developed at wallgreens or the Camera Company right? Because I can only develop B&W in the dark room here at school.
I would say use Ektar if you like vivid colours (I love ektar)
Fuji Superia X-tra 400 isn't too bad
and the Kodak colorplus has good colours but is rather grainy
also avoid fuji c200 the colours are very dull
titles are $1, should i buy a title
i don't know what i would make mine, probably something stupid that would look stupid
maybe i'll make it HQRSE
HQRSE, oh wow.
nostalgy flashes me
my avatar is a horse it's perfect
Buy some Ektar 100 and some Superia 200 or 400. Those are some films I like
Portra on the other hand is super neutral, lowish contrast and huge tonal range.
guys, my mum just told me to take some nice photos of my cat because he has been booked in to be put down tomorrow morning. I feel like my camera is tainted now :(
also, because the images are going to be blown up i set up a few brenizers but i dont have photoshop at all so would anyone mind doing the automerge for me if i emailed them the files?
