"Yesterday I was mighty drunk and thought about making some money on the side while I finish my degree and considered maybe going around my city and making photos of drunk idiots and maybe thereby maybe getting clubs or party organizers to hire me for an evening.
I have no idea about pricing and I'd compete with pic related.
I have an external flash and did plenty of photos on parties for my friends. But my Camera is a G85 which I bought mostly for video, so I wouldnt get that super crazy shallow depth of field all the Instagram hoes gush about, but maybe I could make sample videos for people to use for their Facebook etc.

How stupid is this idea?"

What lens(es) do you have? Shallow depth of field doesn't matter that much for party stuff, but a large aperture does help with keeping the flash power low so it doesn't light the entire background up.

Something I'm dealing with just now for a new genre (for me) of photography and in the end ND Filters were the wrong option for me because of my subjects but would work for your needs. Square ND Filter is the cheap way to go but obviously you sacrifice flexibility and focus. If you're poor you can buy one circular ND and step down for your other lenses

>>3320848
Wrong thread, you want the gear thread. Also without know what you want to do nobody can recommend you anything

For people who have no idea what they want I always suggest the a6000 and looking at the stat sheet of the 5300 it's basically the same camera, and nikon lenses tend to be cheaper so if you already have your heart set on that then it's a reasonable choice despite the drawbacks"

Pretty much. Bought mirrorless specifically for this reason and don't regret it.

Another important thing is to vow to never walk past a shot- in the past I remember several moments where I saw something interesting out of the corner of my eye or let a moment pass because I was in the wrong position or felt something was off, or couldn't be bothered to walk those extra hundred meters and then later regretted it.

Yeah you can, you can try lenses in camera shops or even rent them for a day to try them out. Or if you're reluctant to go outside you can order them on Amazon then return the lens if you don't like it for a full refund. Staring at photos taken online is pointless imo.

I want/need lenses for macro, telephoto, and wide angle.

Thanks. I'll have to go looking for a camera shop near me.

>Staring at photos taken online is pointless imo.
>What are you going to do, go to 300% zoom and micro compare sharpness?
I see your point but that's not what I'm after, I'm trying to see the general pros and cons overall between wide and telephoto lenses and see the difference aperture makes on each in general, if it's any different compared to my prime.

Not looking to pixel peep and try to get the sharpest of sharp lenses. Just an unbiased look at what offers what so I know what to expect and shop for.

>At the end of the day it doesn't matter how good a lens is, it's how you put it to use as a photographer that matters.
This is a stupid meme and very untrue.
In regards to quality vs budget it has some merit, but when it comes to your tool being literally unusable for your intended goal, gear does matter. A whole hell of a lot. I literally can't take good macro shots with my 50mm prime. My little point and shoot, on the other hand, can. It has a small as fuck sensor and a 5mm lens (but it's cropped as hell so it's effectively ~29mm) however due to the small size it gets to focus on things that are up extremely close. My DSLR with the 50mm cannot."

I use a 135mm lens that nobody has ever heard of or memed online for a great deal of my work. I found it in a charity shop for cheap and thought "why not". Nobody has ever brought it up or cared what's on my camera. Nerding out reading about pros and cons from a bunch of shills would have been a waste of my time that I could have spent using my camera.

You've already admitted that you have limited hands on experience with photography and spend most of your time reading about it. Now you're looking for more ways to waste time reading instead of taking photos. Just buy the cheapest macro, telephoto and wide angle you can find then go out and shoot. The "pros and cons" legitimately do not matter, all that matters is you put out some work. By spending all your time researching you're stagnating and not improving as a photographer. Ultimately you'll end up like a lot of the gearfags around here who endlessly research gear but never take photos.

The cheapest are still pretty costly, so I'd rather not just go buy them without looking into them a little bit.

">People often say megapixels aren't important.
>MUH U AINT GONNA PRINT ON BILLBOARD SO WHY DOES IT MATTER!?
Why is this kind of shit said so often?
This "megapixels aren't important" meme needs to die.

Assuming quality is good, more megapixels translates into more reach you crop. Resolution 4x higher means 4x zoom (through cropping) without losing quality.

A theoretical 1,000 megapixel sensor with a super high quality 16mm lens would basically let you shoot anything but extremely distant subjects and you'd have no need to switch out lenses.

Minus the obvious marketing lies for "multi shot" megapixel ratings which come with their own cons (multiple shots needed, not suitable for any motion) I personally can't wait till we see affordable DSLRs with true 100+ megapixel sensors everywhere.

What would the downside be? File sizes?"

If you're regularly cropping your images 1:4 you have bigger problems to worry about than megapixels, like basic brain function

Price. Higher resolution just isn't that important for 99% of pro photographers except in a few select genres like Astro"

Lol. Cropping is very common in wildlife photography especially birds.

You could just buy a longer lens but cropping is usually needed. APS-C sensors already "crop" for you and are common in that field.

>If you don't give a shit about focus, sure
You'd still be able to focus on things with no problem.
Why wouldn't you?

Obviously you wouldn't want to crop into the peripheral. It'd just be a way to essentially have focal length selection in post, by means of cropping accordingly, instead of switching lenses. Bonus, this could also be a setting in the camera to save crop presets so you don't waste space when you don't want wide angle."

He/you were asking a generalised and lauded question under the pretence that high resolution is under-rated. I was showing that it isn't- it's not in demand because it's a smaller part of photography and doesn't really matter that much, like most people state
You were talking about a 16mm on a 1,000mp sensor which is an absurd example but if we assume that then we extrapolate what we already know about extreme resolution cameras- focus is "limited" because the lens is also ultra expensive and lenses tend to be wider than 16mm to compensate

In normal use higher res doesn't make any real difference to DoF but you were talking about extremes there

In short, higher res is always nice but it's not a big deal in most circumstances"

But you are loosing quality anon. I guess you haven't shot birbs before, but cropping will always decrease quality compared to moving in closer and taking equally framed shot. Yes, resolution is important, but you loose vital sharpness pushing only after it. Just look at mobiles, you've silly mp numbers, jet end output looks worse than ten year old 12mp full frame."

Pretty much every lens in existence has a filter thread on the front of it.

Buy a Nikon 35mm f1.8, best investment you’ll ever make to up your game.

Learn about aperture and shutter speed and how a “faster” lens gives you higher quality photos. Photographing with a fixed lens is something every photographer needs to do and does eventually, kit lenses just can’t even touch fixed primes. Learning to shoot with a fixed lens makes you a much better photographer and taught me far more about composition than any yt video will (okay maybe not literally but you get the point).

I bought a 35mm 1.8 for my D3200 a couple of years ago and still regret selling that setup (despite now using a setup 2x the price now), it was genuinely a quality setup that could have you set for years to come. Buy it, $175 for that thing is a steal."

Not as much light or subject separation. Kit lenses tend to have an aperture like f3.5-5.6 so they're not great in low light or for getting blurry background (bokeh) from your subjects. You'd have to try pretty hard to get anything pleasing out of them for subject separation.

Prime lenses tend to excel at allowing in more light and bokeh. Higher end zooms will have either allow in more light like starting at f2.8 or they'll have a fixed aperture that doesn't darken as you zoom in like kit lenses do. The aperture remains the same throughout the zoom range which is good for video as you don't need to constantly adjust exposure as you zoom in.

>If I want objectively good photos, like objectively superior imagery and not "artsy" shit, small apertures are usually always best, right?
No. You use whichever aperture the shot and scene demand. That might sound like a cop-out but answering otherwise is simply misguided
Your example is a good one because you're clearly aware good bokeh is often one of the goals of a shot and matters more the better you get at certain types of portrait photography

>When is too small of an aperture a bad thing with sharpness as your main concern?
If you're purely talking sharpness then whichever aperture causes the lens to be less sharp than it's optimal sharpness. Typically anything above f8 on most lenses

But again, that's simply an autistic way of picking an aperture because sharpness is a low priority in most professional types of photography
