I use a 50mm f1.8 and a 24 mm f2.8 prime

You should be able to use anything, shooting at a wide open aperture, ISO under 1200 to avoid grainy shots, in bulb mode. I have a remote trigger that fits my Canons and can leave the shutter open for 30 seconds plus. If no trigger, you can sometimes get away with 30 second shutter speed with a 2+ second timer to avoid shakeage.

i haven't done any night time shots since last summer, but i shot at 2.8 and i think my ISO was over 1200. I had the shutter set for 30 seconds, so i'm wondering if that's what caused my images to be overly grainy.

how long are you holding the shutter open in bulb mode?

try f/8 @iso 400

honestly though, get a cable release. if you want to avoid grain you should try to shoot as low as possible, so truthfully multi-minute exposures are what youre looking at. its been a long time since i shot anything like that but i can remember shooting some old asylums at night rocking 40 minute exposures to get star trails while hiding in the bushes.

yeah, i have a shutter release. i'll have to play around with bulb mode and figure out what would be a good amount of time to leave the shutter open for.

bingo. if you have a cheap light meter you can certainly pull a reading for high iso and do the math to convert it down to iso 100. most cheapo digital meters wont give you exposure times beyond a minute or two, so youd have to pull a reading from a higher iso.

do any of you post your photos to flickr? i used to post them there when i'd make new posts on IG or tumblr (i can't remember which), and the images always came out grainy as fucked. i stopped doing that, but then hated actually going to flickr, since it's owned by yahoo and you need a yahoo email. it seems like it's still quite a vibrant community for photographers, but i despise that i need to sign into a yahoo account to access the site.

is flickr even worth posting on these days?

I use it regularly because I'm at a computer for work most of my day. I'm mostly on it for reference and inspiration but I do a fair amount of posting photos in different groups as well just to get them out there. I think because I've had an account for so long that I tend to like it more than say instagram/tumblr.

It's also easy to navigate back through your posts and a nice way to see progress over the years (for me at least)

that makes sense. i didn't use flickr until after i had been on tumblr for years, and just didn't want to try building up another following on a separate platform. that, coupled with the fact that i have to sign in with my yahoo email, make me not want to use. however, i feel like there are way more talented photographers using flickr than on tumblr. i come across a lot of shit on tumblr.

I used to use flickr religiously, then got lazy. I should spend some time and update it with stuff I've shot over the past few years.

Like WaxedCurbs said, I like to look back at all my photos from the past. I think I've been on there for at least 10 years now, so it's definitely a trip down memory lane.

To be safe you can ask for a hand check, but I've had undeveloped film go through border control X-Rays without issue. If you're going on a plane your film's gonna receive a bunch of radiation from the altitude anyways. The lower the ISO of your film the less sensitive it will be to X-Rays, so unless you've got some Delta 3200 you should be alright.

i haven't been shooting a bunch over the past few months. luckily, i'll be traveling for a few weeks, and i know i'll be shooting a ton. part of why i think i haven't shot a bunch this summer is that whenever i shoot i've been trying to adhere to a certain style of photography, which is primarily landscapes. because of this, i tend to gravitate towards certain landscapes, vast peaks, camping and hiking scenes, etc. i have really gotten away from taking photos just for the sake of taking photos and capturing moments. i feel like i really need to get back into the habit of snapping frames of everyday moments and things, as i know this will help me hone my skills.

as mentioned earlier, i copped about 20 rolls of black and white and color negative film, along with about 6 packs of impossible project film. i'm going to shoot a shit ton while i'm traveling, but i'm hoping that i'll keep it up even after i get back.

what are some of the things you all do to stay active in your shooting?

How do you all handle your photo storage? Specifically those who shoot large events/weddings. I have about 6 gigs left on my iMac. I have three external drives (1 TB – photos only, 2x 2 TB – everything). I can definitely go through and delete older files to help clear up some space, although that’s a major time consumer. I feel like I don’t have the best practices when it comes to this.

We use two 3 TB externals per year in addition to Amazon Drive. I have a travel backup (Lacie Rugged) that we use anytime we go somewhere.

Basically the process for us is this:

We bring a laptop to every single wedding and it has Lr.

-We dump every card we max throughout the wedding to the laptop
-Transfer all RAW files to Lacie Rugged (travel backup)
-Come home and transfer all RAWs from Lacie Rugged to iMac
-Backup all RAWs to both externals
-Cull, Edit, Deliver
-Once a session/wedding/whatever is delivered we then backup the jpegs to both externals and Amazon Drive

If you open one of our externals, they each have the same set of folders and this is how it's all broken down. Like: RAWs, Weddings, Engagements, Personal (all my film, street, landscape, etc goes in personal)

Thanks for the breakdown, Aaron! Yea, my photo folders are all exact copies on the iMac and externals. I guess my main thing would be to convert weddings to jpegs and remove RAWs just from iMac. They’ll still be backed up on externals, and removing them from iMac would definitely help free up space.

We have in our contract that we would only keep files for two years after the wedding, but I can’t bring myself to fully delete anything. Perhaps jpegs could be all I keep once they hit the two year mark, and trash 99% of the RAWs (still keep some for portfolio).

My personal stuff needs a big culling. So many RAWs, jpegs, PDFs, TIFFS, and all of the same photo. Oh the days of over editing…

Folks who shoot and have regularly shot hardcore shows, I'm gonna go catch a slew of bands this coming week at Brooklyn Bazaar (backtrack, dtn, vein, etc). I've really never shot hardcore shows, only played them. Anyone have pointers for ways not to annoy/piss people off while being able to get good content? I'm pretty unsure of the boundaries here and don't want to figuratively step on people's toes or piss bands off by getting up in their shit. Like I said, this is new territory for me, so I'd love any input. And if you've shot at Brooklyn Bazaar, I'd love to know your experience and if you have any additional pointers.

Thank you!

I'll try to get as close to the band as possible and remain there for the rest of the set. Once I'm in place I'll also shoot the least amount as possible to try to avoid disrupting anyone around me. Never had an issue or anyone telling me anything

Speaking of live pictures, this one of dinosaur jr has to be my favorite one I've shot. Taken on the Sony rx100. I sold it shortly after but man I miss that thing

Trying out the whole grid layout on Squarespace versus the slide I'd been using. I think I am liking it more and I feel like it does a better job of keeping me engaged with the content.

Check it out if you're bored. http://aarondurall.com

Also, if any of y'all are great at curating, I'm open to any suggestions. Sometimes I just want to take all of that stuff off there and start over. Curating is easily my biggest weakness.

Also, if any of y'all are great at curating, I'm open to any suggestions. Sometimes I just want to take all of that stuff off there and start over. Curating is easily my biggest weakness.


I love the grid layout but sometimes I find myself not liking the sizing of some of them. Is there a way to decide which pictures are what size?

Also your shit is so awesome! Really love it!

Thank you, man! I haven't figured out if you can assign size to certain images. I don't think you can. But, yeah, I do dig it. I am pretty OCD with organization, so you can see on the portrait page (home page), it's like a row with three portraits and two landscapes and I alternated that from one row to the next.

All in all, I do feel like a grid keeps me more engaged than a slider.
