What about portable LED lights? Any suggestions for small ones that are diffuse, but have good control of intensity. Powerful if possible. A pocket size one would be great to have.

RE: Getting into photography - how to start, what to get?
Guys, got an idea.

Using tinder as a way to find girls to practice on portrait photography. Yes, I am serious. Thinking about opening a profile where I would put in info how I am looking for girls to take pictures of on the street (so they feel more at ease being in public) and instead of them paying me money, they should buy me a drink afterwards. That drink afterwards would of course be good for gaming them.

Win win situation for both or a stupid idea that no girl would want to do?

Sony A6000 witha Sigma 30mm 1.8 Lens.

1) learn the basics
2) DM your girl friends for photoshooting
3) tell to those girls to invite other girls
4) take the pics
5) learn how to edit (I use the following workflow: Lightroom --> Photoshop --> Lightroom)
6) post them on Facebook/Instagram
7) get other random hot girls by DM- ing them
8) repeat the last 3

Cheers!

Well this is something akin to my post above. Except I don't have pro camera (big DSLR that screams "dude I am a pro") and would try to play it like a fun adventure on tinder and instead my girl friends I would invite girls I don't know yet.

Ive been watching tons of youtube videos and blows my mind how much post processing plays a role. a sizable amount of pics look just as shitty as a newb's before they lightroom the shit out of it.

Kind of a bummer.

True and since it plays major role in photography I invested a lot of time watching tutorials for Lightroom and practicing it. Took some of my old pictures to a whole new level. I learned a lot from Matt Kloskowski.

When I scroll through the forum titles I keep seeing this as “Getting into pornography”...
