..what have you been using this whole time?
There is a MUP with 110 3.5 on Gumtree atm for $600 in Melb.
Does anyone have any recommendations as what kinda of outcome I should attempt to negotiate in terms of volunteering as one of the photographers for an event?
Should I give them unlimited usage rights or what are my options? I'm a bit unsure in terms of the copyright surrounding photography.
I don't really edit my pictures that much/at all, never been a huge fan of it.
Do they look like this then:
I don't really get the hate though
His point is that "processing" has been part of photography for as long as there's been photography.
You're simply choosing to let the camera do it instead of doing it yourself, which is fine if you think the camera knows what you want better than you do.
Horses for courses I am learning about 'darkroom' processing with trial and error at the moment.. O.G Photoshop.
Ah right, I wasn't following the negative reference originally but I'm with him now.
I'm usually fairly happy with how my pictures are taken, but I'd like to see what the result could be if I used lightbox or similar instead of just letting the camera do its thing.
Wasnt so much any negativity, just pointing out that you are editing your photos whether you like it or not.
Yeah all good, I missed the message originally and read your post the wrong way
Does anyone have a recommended insurance to cover art work which is to be on display in a gallery - do you take the risk of theft / fire or get a cover note?
I took the risk but it was a smaller gallery and it was manned at all times. I believe the gallery had insurance as well and honestly the value wasnt worth the effort.
Thanks .. I think for this time I will also just take the risk ... while they have insurance it does not cover any property other than their own
Just to report back I ended up with a 35mm f/1.8G nikkon and the afore mentioned 18-105.
I thought 18-105 was about bang on for everything I saw, would have liked a little more reach here and there but I have fairly wobbly hands so I don't know how well it would have gone even with stabilisation.
Only really used the 35mm at night as the 18-105 is pretty nice stepped down.
Spending a bit of time trying to sort out how to organise the ICU in the Loka. Currently i have it like this:
Thats roughly what will be carried in it. Any thoughts on better organisation?
Any way you can put extra padding around the lens in the middle? That's the only issue I can see.
What's an acceptable price for a shitty 110 film shitty point and shoot? $100? It's like almost $50 for shipping alone...
It IS, however, the exact same model as the the first serious camera i've ever had, down to the same freaking colour. the first one that isn't from a 2 buck shop that needed 126 film and that totally encapsulated the film.
Yes, i'd pay the hipster price for lomo 110 film just for childhood memories (that's one reason i bought the Instax...)
Should I buy? should i not? Should i buy and go to my daughter when she's a bit older: "your daddy learned to shoot with this. i know you're used to digital, but this is a bit different..."
I prefer to keep my camera bodies aligned along the centre of my backpack, to distribute the weight more evenly.
Yeah, but with that width it seems to waste a lot of space that way. Ill give it a go though.
