ciqeunystcot23d
Actually, AirPods make it "much better" not to use a cable.
mngqrgsmmpzd23d
(aside of using my AudioTechnica). But I had to keep it in storage anyways, as they are too big for the travel
nsvjiheeobou23d
So yeah, this is truly bad news.
qbjknqxiqyi23d
no, I absolutely refuse to have to live a life where I have to charge my HEADPHONES
jgnldbxephk23d
someone just pitch me off a cliff I want off this train
kmxfcbmoeaes23d
Well, I always keep a safety backup of wired Earpods in the backpack
uuldtudzhayr23d
haven't used it once in 1 year
cniecwxaljbl23d
Although enjoyed the switch mechanism, decent mic, pausing video while taking the headphone out... idk
flzsysvauhhc23d
What I feel like that my iphone photos are so cluttered, it's not about photography any more...
tuyfgswwwtg23d
haha my photo "album" is very cluttered but it's half photography-esque and half random
wbqrkqemgfxm23d
I almost feel a need of an actual camera, that doesn't have random pictures of bad food delivery that I was supposed to send to ubereats / glovo support... or photos of my documents ๐Ÿ˜„
tyydxctdgzk23d
all my photos eventually end up in my Photos library
kgfxmasctyc23d
so it's kind of moot what device I use
emyskkzrtawc23d
nah. I don't do that
ugimurxwcgvb23d
Or if I do, then I export them via lighroom mobile to the photo library. to use somewhere
obldhwqhhzj23d
that sounds complicated
vojxnwfcekw23d
I just import everything to my computer
rmqrsgpqquz23d
๐Ÿ˜„
qobolabibzva23d
Yeah, me too.
โ€ข shoot on my 80D (when I had one. now i sold it...),
โ€ข import with image capture
โ€ข run hazel rules on it, so it sorts pictures and videos into different directories for different retention
โ€ข import photos into lightroom, edit
โ€ข select the ones I like and add into a sync library, that would appear on my lightroom mobile, so I can finish edititing or export into instagram/whatever
โ€ข whatever left on a hard drive is backed up to Amazon Drive and videos to my NAS and another cloud storage
vvtggiiocfg23d
๐Ÿ˜ต
ynfitbvntlte23d
this is required b/c I also shoot (shot) videos
dwebjevotzg23d
yeah I'm sticking to my process ๐Ÿ˜‚
typzcjvtbrar22d
I also have this problem of getting my gallery cluttered with some random photos and with the recent updates to photos app it makes sense to keep photos that are part of memories and nothing random.

For that I am planning to clean up my gallery and use a dedicated app which is light weight like camera app for all the random stuff.
ehmftoamhwxj22d
Also, keeping random stuff aside makes it easy to search for them if they are stored separately
moattmpvdvas22d
Well yeah. but it's so much easier to open the camera app from the lock screen...
wxmznicezfbe22d
True that
fpyyxyunqyk22d
also, does android not have that?
ksxkrcotmsb22d
the camera from the lock screen thing
jvtnnjvbkpc22d
that's the one annoying thing about using my pixel, but maybe I just don't know how to use it right
buekmrdrsyrd22d
I think Android should have more options to let a custom app open from a lock screen
zswzgf21d
You will be moving off most phones then over the next couple years. USB-C or a USB-C/Lightning based preamp will be you choices really.
ykwsonlwmnj21d
what is a preamp?
warwhxuf21d
SAME!
ecmaxt19d
Sorry pre-amp was probably not the right term here.. basically a DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) with a small amp built in to drive the headphones - like the dongles the new Android and iPhones come with.. You can get some better quality ones from Audio companies that will sound even better than your built in headphone jack does - as most phones just use a cheap chip and amp there.
mmswof19d
Like this one (search this on Amazon as I canโ€™t post links) USB C DAC - Portable 32 Bit Headphone Amplifier - USB C Headphone Adapter - Premium Sound Enhancer for Google Pixel 2 XL/3XL,Moto Z,Oneplus,Huawei Mate10 Pro/P20/Mate20
yfwzaa19d
add a period between head-fi and org to get the link to work
xmtwhgfneez19d
I don't care that dongles exist I want to be able to listen to music and charge my phone at the same time dammit
kkqszjr7d
Anyone travel with a camera? Iโ€™ve just recently picked up my first mirrorless (Fuji XT-2)
kokmznn7d
Yeah, I have an old DSLR. Hoping to replace it with mirrorless some day because it's pretty clunky. How do you like yours?
yjksupi7d
Really happy with how small and lightweight it is compared to a DSLR, even than the more modern ones
hvuqwni7d
travel with a fuji x100f that i used a lot ... until i bought a new iphone ๐Ÿ˜‚
arfgmdg7d
now it's like a brick in my bag that gets used once a month
oijulsh7d
at least it doubles as a pretty paperweight?
vuozzuv7d
๐Ÿ˜‚
engssix6d
That's straight out of the camera with default settings
irlqrwh6d
Samsung S10e, not bad
pdpagba6d
Nice! When you take a picture are you able to get photos from both lenses?
zonarbf6d
I'll have to check that out... there is a zoom slider that starts at 1 and goes up _or_ down to "0.5" that engages the wide angle... didn't notice any change on the screen though
enxllvf6d
Canon m50, love this camera. Travel for a year already with it.
fklprtc6d
Taipei one love! โค๏ธ
icyvbru6d
Oh yes ๐Ÿ˜
rojrjzt6d
No change on the screen is a bit odd, perhaps there are some camera apps that give you some different controls, something like halide cam but for android
hfidvru6d
Oh, I mean there wasn't any flicker when the camera lens changed. The controls range from simple to complex, obviously there's a lot more to play with and figure out.
obykp6d
Diving out of Kuta Lombok is still developing and looking promising, thereโ€™s lots of exploration for dive site now. I highly recommend it for anyone stopping by Lombok
zofwefz6d
cabbuw thatโ€™s amazing! Have you got any other photos online somewhere?
cnceyhy6d
What are peoples thoughts on taking a camera around with you, are you more of a โ€œsling it in your bag and grab it when you need itโ€ or โ€œhave it attached to you at all timesโ€ kinda person?
bkklodg6d
mmmm! Thatโ€™s a tricky one. Thereโ€™s a blog I like called โ€œnotanomadblogโ€ and sheโ€™s got a post titled โ€œHow to travel safely with your cameraโ€ where she says that in places where she doesnโ€™t feel as safe, sheโ€™ll be using smaller (more inconspicuous) lenses and only have her camera out when sheโ€™s with other people in a more populated area
phecpuc6d
I think with your sling bag it should be nice and easy to grab it if you need it โ˜บ๏ธ
npgwgcoqiq6d
I carry my camera and zoom lens in a bag like this sling pouch
jkxwm6d
ygcttjgb Yah at the moment I post to Instagram /AzizSeaLife. Eventually I think Iโ€™ll post it somewhere else with better quality ๐Ÿค™
uhysopc5d
Thatโ€™s the one! Thanks for sharing, Iโ€™m too new to post links yet
ywnedqzjqtaw5d
yup! have the sony a5100
exjewag4d
Nice!
rqreypx4d
For anyone not doing photography as a career, what do you finding yourself doing with your photos?
abepytz4d
Iโ€™m planning on capturing some nice memories and hopefully printing some favourites along the way
csofkbeceznu4d
rwbpdlhb Iโ€™m seeing it as a skill to develop in a way so I have a portfolio where i collate some photos into categories that I really like. Iโ€™m also attempting to blog about my learning process though after post 1 Iโ€™ve been verrrrrry slow on post 2. But aside from that I just edit and back up my favorites in a few places. Plan to print them later as well!
mdxnlff4d
Hey thatโ€™s cool! Would you mind sharing the blog? It sounds like something Iโ€™d love to read at the moment
vrectsmezun4d
I just Instagram :3
uubvorsuhjgo4d
so seriously tho - i wrote one post and brainstormed like 3 and like many projects it got super slowed down
bkokihcqspei4d
so iโ€™m thinking of maybe writing about the compression effect or how much I love my 50 mm in the next post
kxbjcmyfbwzk4d
compression effect largely b/c iโ€™ve been photography mountains/landscapes with like 19 mm vs. 50 mm lenses and noticed how radically different the final photo looks
ecaldio1d
jzvhepqxkrask read through your blog with my morning coffee โ˜•๏ธ it was a nice read! Iโ€™d definitely be interested in hearing about your experiences with 19vs50 and compression
vfqtahqnwmbk1d
thanks USTQ2EZAQ!
vjhytrrgqxtcib24h
Iโ€™m new to the photography world. Do any of you use software to browse or edit or ?? your digital photos?
dcxfclzqodctbv24h
inomjoajqzvcd great blog. Good inspiration.
ogdczzkieyox24h
thanks! i use capture one plus
fzvwdbiakvza24h
i know some people use lightroom
thltwwkkgjwk24h
or photoshop for editing
finwmlghpbpxyi23h
Oh right, photoshop, how can I forget about that one. Iโ€™ll look into the others. Canon has Digital Photo Professional but I donโ€™t know if itโ€™s worth looking into.
gqiqzetbstjwrg22h
The photos are straight from the camera, no editing. Err, well, to reduce the upload size, I chose to screenshot the actuals.
eaevrwd22h
well, you'll definitely want to edit them..
efazeox22h
pick software that you have/want to buy and google for tutorials
yqsnpdhbnpzflu21h
Definitely. Actually, I'm getting ahead of myself. I need to focus on photography first.
apdxtgiafxz21h
I just use Photos on my mac for editing for now
bdifsvqwbhs21h
Eventually I will level up to maybe Lightroom
cmpqfkyanrk21h
I just despise the idea of subscribing to software
oqvvuco20h
given that 95% of the time all i do is slide the lights/darks sliders some in lightroom it feels pretty over priced for me
vsonoij20h
but those things feel like magic
mwlaofo20h
"wow i completely ruined the exposure on this picture .. oh nevermind"
kmwzdvqwdkmiy20h
bcfoyothbhgpbjt you can focus on the behind the camera skills, but also find an editing tool you like

What's important to know as you progress is how to close the loop between what you see, and what you want to see in the final output. So, sometimes you'll change the way you shoot, because you want to use specific techniques in post

Later, this carries on to prints... So you know how to shoot for the develop process to ink, and completes the lifecycle
oboxdsd14h
I use lightroom personally, never really got on with Capture One. I like the pictures youโ€™ve shared sodlxmlyyfgwcdt and my advice to you when editing them would be to focus on what youโ€™re trying to show through these photos - what are the bits that you want people to see and focus on. Once you know what that is, you edit the picture to make that easier by removing distractions

For example the second picture I feel like I should be looking at the multi-coloured building but my eye keeps getting distracted by the yellow light at the bottom left of the frame. There also arenโ€™t any detail/lines from the other buildings because itโ€™s so dark. So perhaps you could bring up the exposure of the buildings slightly and maybe crop-in to remove the bright areas in the bottom corners
pqqkrxo14h
Itโ€™s all kinda personal preference and figuring it out as you go though I guess
qvolengdjwzs13h
btw thereโ€™s also some photography โ€œrulesโ€ that i read about in a few books/articles
jgexwwhathlp13h
that kind of helped me odfwdplcilffjxf
ynvcfmphevat13h
some general principles about composition and lighting
orypyoyypfqtie11h
Thank you everyone those are great tips!
