    Amateur seeks upgrade help or advice!

    I feel Your information is a little misleading. Large aperture delivers a shallow dof and wide angle lenses can deliver a shallow dof in relation. However yes larger focal length lenses do tend to smash backgrounds better, they also flatten the image much more. Take a look Which Lens Should I...

    There's Something Strange Going On In This Town

    I’ve felt indifferent about photography lately. My biggest concern was that if you go out into the world and photograph you’re not necessarily creating something new something that no one has ever seen before. And chances are someone else will or already has taken the same photos. So I decided I...

    Hahaha thank you! I think it would have helped to number them for reference. I’m glad you appreciate the images but some other members have pointed out some minor things that could really help the images even more. But for a first attempt I feel pretty confident in these images even with the flaws.

    Good call in the light cast. I didn’t even take into account the variation color casts

    MARE (be as brutally honest)

    You bring up a lot of good points but the point of the images is to represent what MY fears were as a kid. Though I didn’t explain it but these images were to show glimpses of scenarios that played in my head. It’s hard to make anything that will scare everyone. Just like scary movies, not...

    Lol I will have to think about how to create a realistic ufo and photograph it in a real world context. Check out more of my work at 500px.com/philipbaca although most of my work isn’t so cinematic nor do I use much production as I did in these. Or you can follow me on Instagram...

    Ok so the second shot (TR) is in fact a street light lol and the last shot I did lose some detail because of a few factors the main one was that I did a stack exposure which will cause a loss of detail when blending the multiple photos. Unless someone has some tricks on how to bypass that?

    I had never really thought about the negative space in the tool shed shot and I do see where you’re coming from but I feel that if I were to add anything there it might make the composition noisy and a little distracting. And yeah I get what you mean about the bottom of the frame of the girl...

    I agree, the ufo was a street light near a freeway exit lol

    I haven’t so I’m no help there, but I would say start off with a cheaper one unless you know for sure that it’s an investment that will pay off. Focus stacking like that is pretty meticulous and nearly impossible on live insects.

    that's a super sharp shot! if you haven't already, you should look into focus stacking, it helps with macro photography so that you can get the whole subject in focus while keeping the detail just in the subject.
