yukarihinata Also, the last one could a rad album cover for some obscure dungeon synth album (please don't take that as degrading your work, I mean it as the best of compliments).
You are way too polite lol, It's cool you see your own things in my photos, and I have to check out dungeon synth cause I have no idea what it is.
Yes ! For some reasons all the good forums of the internet started to fizzle out and they are not replaced. And yeah I might be too old but no a tiktok feed is not a good place to share your art or to discover anything original. I also don't get the point of most subreddits since its just always the same stuff that ends up at the top.
yukarihinata I'd give constructive critique, but alas I know nothing of your craft. I appreciated your photos nonetheless and hope you continue to improve your craft.
Thank you ! The feedback I like the most is when people tell me what they feel.
Lumeinshin have to confess I do like a lot of the popular photography stuff, the sunsets and whatnot.
Nothing wrong with that ! I just make a clear distinction between pretty pictures and attempts at art. I know it sounds snobbish. But what I mean is that to make art, you have to put a piece of you in the image. Some kind of statement that uses the photo as a media to be expressed. I'm interested by what people want to express, not the sunset. (please don't let that discourage you from posting here, that's just my opinion... see this pretty picture with 0 attempt at art by me : )
Lumeinshin I totally get why photography became purely gearposting, you can take a good photo with any gear these days
That's true and there is more to it I think. First we live in a world where motivation and focus is being monopolized by scrolling social medias, and something so little rewarding as photo requires some of that. But buying gear, gives instant reward.
Second, photo might be the hardest art form to objectively judge because it is not necessarily technical, and you don't necessarily see what technicality was put in the image. But why talk to try to dissect something completely subjective when you know that it would be instantly buried on any platform, with 0 like. Upvotes killed photography, in a way. But gear is perfect to talk about: objective in fact sheets, subjective in what is best.
Lumeinshin I'm happy to make a tag for it tho if theres interest 🙂
I hope there will be ! thanks !
