Hey /r/photography!!

As we all know, Flickr was recently acquired by Smugmug from Verizon, and so we reached out to them and asked if they could come do an AMA with us! In case you missed the news, here was the reddit thread and their official announcment.

Don MacAskill is the CEO and Co-Founder of SmugMug, and will be here on Monday the 21st of May at 9am Pacific time to answer your questions about SmugMug and the future of Flickr.

Please post questions in this thread so they can prepare for the AMA :)

re: size vs ergonomics.

I want both options, I want larger options for those who like larger cameras, and smaller options for those of us who like to pocket our cameras.

see more

I like owning one of each. I used to use both a Panasonic GX1 and an Olympus OM-D E-M1.

I prefer to have a bigger camera for professional event stuff (even going so far as putting a battery grip & flash on top), and a smaller camera for every day use & travel.

I like being able to use all my lenses on both cameras. And it's important to have a back-up body when doing paid work.

Hey /r/photography,

Sorry I've been missing for a while. Life got busy (and also we found some wonderful, capable new mods to take the reins).

I've just had my first solo photography exhibition, I held it this week because I'm turning 30 soon, and wanted to feel more like a legitimate artist while in my 20s.

If you're in Sydney, the photographs will still be up until 6pm today (9 hours from this post). Come say hi, we're at TAP Gallery Sydney. 1/259 Riley Street, Surry Hills.

I'll be recording a Q&A video in the gallery space at 3pm (6 hours from now), so I'd love to get some questions to answer! I'll be streaming the video on Facebook live. Here is the Facebook event


You can see the exhibition here: http://david-ma.net/gallery

The exhibition is titled “Parallel Horizons” and contains 18 of my favourite photos from the past 10 years of travel.

You might remember the first photo (titled "Parallel Horizons") from this RAW Editing Contest from 2014!

And this photo (titled "Quotidian") was used in this RAW Editing Contest just last year :)

-David Ma

Here is the Facebook live recording of the AMA: https://www.facebook.com/frostickle/videos/10155972918020923/

Thanks everyone who tuned in and asked questions!

I’m packing up the exhibition now, but I will answer all your questions as text replies.

Wait...... Edna Mode was female???? WTF IS HAPPENING TO MY BRAIN RIGHT NOW?!

The character Edna Mode is female, but her voice actor is male (Brad Bird, also the director of The Incredibles).

Moderator of r/photography, speaking officiallyScore hidden · 10 months ago · Stickied comment

Be sure to follow @RedditPhotography and use the hashtag #RedditPhotography to be featured :)

Our moderators are curating photos from that hashtag to that account!

Hey /r/photography!

First of all, sorry my script is broken so we haven't had regular threads for more than a week now. I tried to do something a bit too ambitious (build a new thing to replace the old script) if I don't have it up in the next few days, I'm going to do something stupid and hacky just so we have some normalcy back.


Secondly, we have an Instagram account!

@RedditPhotography

Follow this account and use the hashtag #RedditPhotography to be featured. It's currently being curated by @Frostickle, @sidbrunskill, @dehazevisual and @ivetteyepiz.

(Not that you have to follow us - I just believe that moderators/curators should be publicly visible and accountable. I think that faceless & anonymous accounts having control over a community is unhealthy.)


Our friends at /r/analog are curating photos from #RedditAnalog to @RedditAnalog, this account is being curated by their mod team. Please only post analog photos to this hashtag :)


And finally, this is the Official Monthly Instagram (and other social media) Follow Thread! So please share your stuff here, and of course take a look at other people's stuff too!

Guidelines

  • If you post your stream, please take a look at other people's streams!

  • You can give us your Instagram, 500px, Flickr, etc. etc. and remember you can edit your flair.

  • Be descriptive, don't just dump your username and leave! For example a good post should look like this:

Hi! I'm @Frostickle and on my Instagram and the three main genres I post are "Portraits", "Food" and "Lifestyle", but sometimes I also post about /r/photography, for instance sometimes I'll post my edit from the reddit RAW contests!

I'll follow everyone from /r/photography back (if I miss you, just leave a comment telling me you're from reddit!).

  • Check out and follow other /r/photography people! Community is what it's all about, and remember it's always ok to unfollow people later if their photos aren't to your taste :)

Thanks for reading this wall of text,

-Frostickle

Hi everyone,

Sorry my script broke! Reddit reset my password because of a security threat. So I thought I'd take the opportunity to make those improvements that I'd been meaning to make... but it was more work than I thought it would be, and I didn't get it finished this weekend >_<

Anyway, please put up with no-automated-threads for a few more days, and thank you very much to /u/anonymoooooooose and the rest of the mod team for covering while stuff is broken.

-Frostickle

This post is from /u/Sryzon who won 2 weeks ago!

Thanks for the votes! My name is Daniel Plucinski and you can find me on flickr or my soon to be finished(hopefully) website dpd.photo.

This was taken last month at Detroit's Campus Martius. I quite like how my edit turned out and I'm curious to see how others take it.

Worried the question is "stupid"?

Worry no more! Ask anything and /r/photography will help you get an answer.


Info for Newbies and FAQ!

  • This video is the best video I've found that explains the 3 basics of Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO.

  • Check out /r/photoclass2017 (or /r/photoclass for old lessons).

  • Posting in the Album Thread is a great way to learn!

1) It forces you to select which of your photos are worth sharing

2) You should judge and critique other people's albums, so you stop, think about and express what you like in other people's photos.

3) You will get feedback on which of your photos are good and which are bad, and if you're lucky we'll even tell you why and how to improve!

  • If you want to buy a camera, take a look at our Buyer's Guide or www.dpreview.com

  • If you want a camera to learn on, or a first camera, the beginner camera market is very competitive, so they're all pretty much the same in terms of price/value. Just go to a shop and pick one that feels good in your hands.

  • Canon vs. Nikon? Just choose whichever one your friends/family have, so you can ask them for help (button/menu layout) and/or borrow their lenses/batteries/etc.

  • /u/mrjon2069 also made a video demonstrating the basic controls of a DSLR camera. You can find it here

Are you wondering how a photo was taken or curious about the post processing to achieve a certain look? Then this is the thread for you!

The difference between this thread and the daily question thread is that the daily question thread is primarily about operating or purchasing your equipment. This thread is about more about crafting the content of your images.


This is where we'll take the time to answer questions covering:

  • How to recreate a photo

  • How to take a photo with certain gear

  • How to post process images to achieve a certain style

  • and other "how to" style/artistic questions.

This is your Weekly Album Thread, where you are invited to share an album that you would like feedback on!


Guidelines

  • Before posting, please give some feedback on other people's albums too.

  • Feedback can be as little as "I like this photo the best".

  • If you are more confident in your critiquing abilities, give people a reason why ## photo was good or ## photo was bad, and what they can do to improve!

  • Please post "Albums" not "Here are 200 photos from my trip to Japan" or "Here is my flickr photo-stream or website." We have other threads for that stuff!

  • Join us in the r/photography FLICKR GROUP!

Hey peeps, this is the raw editing challenge!

Rules for newbies here: http://goedhartvoordieren.nl/?page=r/photography/comments/6je9tf/official_weekly_raw_editing_challenge/


Credit:

My username is Ejakulation (with a 'k' because german), and I stand by my name. [not really, it's embarassing and I might need help]

But for crediting, I'd prefer my instagram handle: @axp.photography.

Thank you for organizing all of this, must be a pain at times!

Description:

Taken last week during a wedding. Taken on a Sigma 50-100, so of course, focus is missed slightly... but that's negligible. The image has a lot of potential to be taken several places, so I'm curious to see what people come up with, and how it differs from my approach.

At the beginning of every month, we join together and do our best to view and critique each others websites. The main purpose of this thread is to learn things from each other that can benefit our own photography or websites. Use this thread to talk about all aspects of your online representation, from social media to SEO to personal branding and portfolios!

Having a website is a beneficial utility in showing our work to potential clients so it's highly advised that if you find something particular that could be improved in someones website - please kindly tell them about it and how they could improve the "issue".


Guidelines

  • If you post your website, please comment on at least two other websites

  • Please reply to any comments that have no replies!

  • Don't be hesitant to post a link to your website, even if there's a plethora of comments.

  • It doesn't matter if you're a "Beginner" or "Professional Photographer", just have fun and learn from each other - that's what this thread is for so take advantage of this opportunity.

So what have you been doing last week? If there's anything you'd like to share with the community about yourself and your photography, feel free to do so here in this thread. This is where we get to know each other!

(Please try to refrain from talking about gear in here, we have plenty of other places to do that on /r/photography)
