    Photography catnip?

    Bicycles, boats, and chairs. I find it hard to pass by without taking a photo. Sometimes the photo is interesting, often not. But it's hard to turn away. What subjects compel you? What is it about them that, uh, *captures* you?

    Old Photography Ads

    I thought it might be fun to post some old ads for classic camera gear. I have some older National Geographic magazines which often contained cool ads for contemporary camera and film companies. I decided I would occasionally scan some on my flatbed. Add your own finds as well! #1, Nikon FE ad...

    This reminds me of when I first started out in photography.

    I was over-saturating, over-sharpening, over-everything in Lightroom.

    Advice Wanted The image size limits for photography sharing?

    my image uploading experience has been frustrating lately as it often takes 10-15 minutes to upload one image to be posted. I figure the reason could be the combination of my network uploading limitation and too large size (I use 2000x1500 pixel PNG 16bit) of the images I post to share. Are...

    Cool new photography technology

    We saw with the Nikon Z9 that it is without a mechanical shutter. And able to do flash sync with the electronic shutter. Which, if Nikon has eliminated the issues/side effects of using electronic shutters. Will be awesome for cameras going forward as that trickles down into other bodies...

    Photography Pivot For Me

    I opened my photography business back in 2008. I did it primarily to help those that could not afford a big studio get the portraits that they need. jump forward a few years and I’m now shooting sports, events, weddings, portraits, festivals, product and architectural. I eventually scale back...

    A Way to Bring Computational Photography to Your Camera?

    An ad for this device popped up on Facebook today. I'd never seen it before. I'm trying to decide if this really is a way to bring computational photography to our dedicated cameras, or whether it's just an extra Intelligent Auto algorithm on top of what our own camera might (or might not)...

    Interesting photography presentation - Eddy van Wessel

    Came across this presentation at Leica Store Amsterdam by war documentary photographer Eddy van Wessel. I'm only part way watching this, really enjoying it so far. Somebody from the Widelux group posted this, saying that there's also some great widelux shots in there.

    Article on T.O.P. About Collapsing Camera Market

    I read this post on The Online Photographer about the collapse of the camera market and one of the comments in particular stood out to me, from John Camp: That strikes me as the simplest explanation for the rise and fall of camera sales, even beyond the smartphone rise. There were a conspicuous...

    Cycling and photography

    Here's an interesting post I saw today. Many of us on these forums are into both cycling and photography, and here's a lad that's found a way to do both for a living. His choice of gear: 5D Mk III + 24-70/2.8, with an 85/1.8 occasionally along for the ride. He actually says he's not concerned...

    Movies about photography

    We don't have a (very recent) thread about movies about photography and photographers. Everybody knows Blowup (1966) but I don't think photography-wise it's the best treatment of the subject. My subjective opinion of course, I'll put these movies on a pedestal as the greatest: Life (2015)...

    Read old photography magazines!

    While I don't like to read or watch photographs on a small phone screen, my LFI subscription doesn't allow desktop viewing of their archives. On an occasion I do read an old issue on the phone. They had "reader submitted photographs" even back then, nice to get amateurs and pros side by side...

    Leica IR photography with M8

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. I've still got my old M8. Its excess IR sensitivity ought to make it a good IR camera. Accordingly, today I ordered an R72 IR filter and a couple of step-up rings. I might as well try something new while “The Plague“ has curtailed my musical...

    Concert Photography in the age of Covid19

    So last night one of my favorite singer/songwriters held a performance. I bought a ticket and logged in for the 45 minute show. Since it was the first time I'd seen her live, I had to take photos, yes? Even had a blurry shot or two just as in a non-virtual concert. It was an odd feeling and...

    Advice Wanted How to deal with people telling you what you should be taking pictures of or other unsolicited advice?

    At a family social event this past weekend I had a situation where somebody went out of their way to make a point of, and then nearly insist, on a few things that I should be taking pictures of. It was an extremely uncomfortable situation for me for a number of reasons (let's just say that in...

    The modern ICE train from Germany passes by at 120 km/h, while the traveler is reminded of an exhibition of the Jewish history. Today was an in-between day. Storm hit the Netherlands the day before and another storm is predicted for the next day. It was a quick stroll today.
