    It's worth remembering that because of how optics works, the smaller the sensor you're using, the more depth of field you get. This is not necessarily what you want for portraits, but for macro it can be pretty useful.

    The tiny clip-on phone macro lenses give an awful lot of magnification, _and_ have small sensors, so are a surprisingly good option as long as you can get the phone + lens up to the thing you're taking a photo of. For a bit more control, I had an Nikon Coolpix 4500 which had a small sensor _and_ optics that let you focus in close, which made for a great combination for taking pictures up close with a reasonable amount of depth of field:

    One more spooky photo from the wildfire smoke a few weeks back.

    Dang @bsjezz absolutely love those astrophotos. That last one is especially beautiful.

    @WeX Majors Honestly I think it would be fine to some extent to post photos from in games. I've taken a lot over the years and never done anything with them, there's a few street photographers who took to the streets of spiderman and red dead during the pandemic though. You can really get creative in game photography nowadays, I know there's a photographer that has specifically made his career out of taking photos ingame since vanilla WoW times.

    Those smoke pics are mind boggling @Sublimus

    Another from this trip, I got overwhelmed at the amount of photos I took and had to take a break from them for a minute.

    The colors and clarity are incredible. Is this handheld or on a tripod? Did you do any kind of processing?

    Couple photos taken recently, after we have finally went out in downtown Austin (digital), and had some fam over (film, Canonet):

    And yeah, it's heavy on shots of my kiddo.

    @oldmanken beautiful shots, really love the Canonets.

    @godmode Shot handheld - I shoot mostly handheld unless doing real estate photos or astrophotography. The photo is edited, however, I don't edit my landscape photos much besides some levels, maybe some curves (split toning now and again) on top of FUJI's film simulations. Now that I type it out, it may actually be considered a lot of editing? But I consider stuff like this pretty quick, only takes me a few minutes to dial in. This is all my edits below:

    Having purposefully stayed away from most vidjagames this generation because I'm the type of person who'll just spend a bazillion hours at a time in front of the screen, the thing I now regret is missing out on incredibly detailed and intricate modes dedicated exclusively for taking photos.

    I've always been the type to want to stop and admire the handiwork a team of artists put into making the map but prior to I'd say, the last 5 years you'd basically just be able rotate the camera around and hit a button.Plus, ya know, those pixels

    So to be able to go from that to a game that has DoF controls and let's you just Click where you want the sun(s) to be, well that's pretty darn neat. So here's a few.

    I done gone and bought a new camera (it arrived just over a month ago) and I've been trying to get better with it. Going through my Lightroom catalog though, despite it swelling tremendously thanks to my new ability to do tons of burst shots, I still can't get over the fact so many photos strike me a "vacation snaps" and I don't feel like a whole lot of it is interesting. I'm hoping to capture some more stuff soon - got a trip up to the mountains this weekend, in fact.
    In the meantime, please accept these humble offerings:

    In the original, the ferris wheel didn't pop as much as I wanted it to, so I toyed around with the radial gradient a bit, in addition to a couple clipped spots. Does it look unnatural?

    I'd consider that the basics certainly. It's one or two steps up from jpeg mode/using the raws directly out of the camera. That's not an insult--it's a testament to getting it right in-camera rather than in-post.

    edit: sorry about the batsignals!

    Yo those shots are pretty fun. Don't worry about the wheel, you've got this ride in the middle of downtown with colors designed to make it stand out, it SHOULD look a bit different than the rest of the picture. Also I love that you managed to get the wheel coloring the water below it. Very good.

    I'm not even gonna bother sharing the few shots I've taken of a wheel cause THOSE are some vacation-ass vacation photos. Ugh.

    Has lightroom not changed in 10 years or are you using a really old version?

    Hey whoa now, it's changed a little bit - they added dehaze to the basic adjustments menu about a year or two ago >.<
    It's the newest version btw. The most recent thing they added was a color grading menu, which is a much more straight forward version of tone curves and split toning. More or less it's stayed the same with tiny adjustments here and there, also - still an absolute hog on your system.

    Haha I'm kind of glad it hasn't changed much. I really like it. I used it pretty fine on a 2007 Macbook Pro for a long time.

    Yeah I trash talk it a bit, but I use the hell out of Lightroom. I still love the simplicity.

    Couple doggos and more from my backpacking trip.

    The picture not loading is pretty perfect actually. I'm glad I could inspire a mini-trend lol.
