    big (low number) aperture = short DoF

    other thing is opposite.



    I've learned a load of shit from the SA photography forum, there are some insane dudes there.


    I spent a while the other day trying to pan cars, I think I got 1 decent one out of 10 or so shots.
    I'm hoping to be able to take some good pictures at my next track meet. Maaaaybe taking my camera to the anamanaguchi concert on thursday.

    I love taking pictures but I'm pretty horrible at it and also horrible about actually taking my camera any where to actually use it.

    These are my favourites from my flickr though.

    I would try this car thing but I don't want to seem like a weird person taking pictures of people and their cars.

    Which is actually a thing I need to get over. I would like to take more pictures of people.

    panning is fucking hard

    1470930689_d5f2277ec2.jpg

    nah that's just fast shutter speed.

    Panning is when you use a slower shutter speed and follow the subjects movement with your camera so the subject stays crisp and the background blurs like this

    That is useful. I've had my camera for a year or two at this point and I'm still trying to figure out how to consistently use aperture settings to get a good depth of field effect. For the most part I shoot on the shutter speed setting and work around that.

    edit: Also yeah I have an artist friend who was pretty condescending about me and photography because his art is real art because he had to work so hard at it and photographers just take a bunch of pictures and a couple of them always turn out good. (I do need to work on my ratio of good pictures to bad pictures though. It is still heavily weighted to the latter)

    True story, my disdain for photography stems from my own lack of any sort of camera.

    Whatever. I take pictures with my eyes and they are way better than any photograph. I can even shine a flashlight in my face and go 'LENSFLAREEEEE'

    I like star pictures. I wish I had spent more time over spring break doing night photography of the sky because we have so much light pollution where I live. I really wish I had stayed up until the moon went down. I would have gotten some great pictures.

    As it is, all I got were these.

    To solve the back problem you either have to always be on point and walk faster, or be 10 minutes behind everyone else and then everyone gets worried and stop slightly off the trail and you don't see them and they don't see you and whoops you're at the end waiting for them for a few hours.

    Art, buy a 50mm 1.8

    They are like $100 and so completely worth it.

    Best aperture you're gonna get for anything close to that price.
