    so my girlfriend has a bunch of disposable cameras she forgot about, with expiration dates going as far back as 2004

    how fucked are those shots? and if they're not fucked, what would be the best place to get them developed?

    the other problem i have it's exorbitantly expensive

    getting all 12 developed with prints would be $200+

    (there might be pictures of her dad on at least one of them so at the very least i'd want to get the really old ones done first)

    i saw a old sigma 100-300 so i picked it up for someone who wanted a zoom but it only takes pictures wide open any other aperture it gives err01, seems like a weird problem

    it wouldnt bother me i guess i will see it they want me to take it back or not

    More of a photoshop fix, but how do I copy and layer over the white space after I stitched this huge ass pano? I copy pasted the left and right side, but I can't seem to erase the edges?

    My attempt:

    content-aware fill did a pretty good job on this



    It's generally pretty reliable at continuing gradients in skies like that, sometimes just requiring some subtle manual cloning afterwards

    Wait, I did that before, when I save it after I scaled it, it jumps back to the shitty area I marked out?

    Okay, it worked, but with my clone tool, I got really patchy skies

    Well shit you did a quicker job than I did. Content aware fill, then I use spot healing and healing brush to touch up on patchy parts.

    Any reason photoshop compressed it from a 53mb file into a 3mb jpeg? Or that is usual?

    you can only squeeze so much detail into a 2500px wide jpeg

    Are there any guides to export/resolution/ppi that makes it easy to understand?

    Like how do I keep a 187mp photo to be the best resolution for prints or web etc.

    save as a file type that doesn't compress such as .psd or .tiff

    dpi/ppi only matters when you're going to do print/web stuff. 300 for prints at 100% and 72 for web

    Had a wedding from 8am to 10pm yesterday, the good news is I'm either going to partner up with this woman I met who is a videographer, or just jump into it myself since I have all the gear anyway and make it an extra part of my package. I can't charge as much as a fully independent videographer, because I can't be doing photo and video fully dedicated at the same time. I'll likely make a $500 add-on for a short 10-15min video with music they give me that's all slider shots or real quick handheld ones. If I take 2 minutes of preparation, 2 minutes of bride and groom, 2 minutes of ceremony, 2 minutes of the general reception (speeches, people dancing, etc) and 2 minutes of the family dances and cake cutting. I could cap it with them leaving, thanking everyone for coming, and maybe doing a quick flash of my business at the very end.

    Thoughts? Ideas?

    Seems like you've thought it through and can make it viable. Go for it.

    I'm thinking that the best way to satisfy my current bout of Gear Acquisition Syndrome is to find a better camera bag. Right now I'm using the one that came with my K1000 but it is unpadded and does not have much room for lenses/flash or another body. Do you guys have any recommendations for bags under 100 USD that I can put a body or two and at least another lens in? Looking for something I can wear with a backpack.

    I use smaller Pelican cases so I can turn any bag into a crush-proof waterproof modular storage system.



    For day trips, I can fit all the camera stuff I'd need into a single Pelican 1150 with an even smaller 1020 velcro'd to the side for memory cards, a flash, lens wipes, etc. I toss the whole bundle in a tote bag.
