Recently I've been getting into photography. I've found that after doing so, I perceive moments in different ways. Things simultaneously seem more transient, yet more permanent. It's a sensation that's difficult to describe, except to say that I am more 'aware' of the moments around me. For obvious reasons I have avoided urban areas, but in terms of landscapes and natural shots, it is quite peaceful.

Any photography hobbyists here?



Next time check for preexisting threads on the same subject please.

Since this thread is still here and the main photography thread is at its bump limit I guess this is the official active photography thread now unless there are any objections.

I like taking pictures of bus stops. I am somewhat of a collector; I've got pictures of 352 different bus stops from Hungary, for instance.

Pic 1: Bus stop in Goraždevac, Kosovo
Pic 2: Bus stop in Küblis, Switzerland
Pic 3: Bus stop in Kerki, Komi Republic, Russia


Neat idea for a collection, wiz! Please post more. Is there any particular reason why you like bus stops?

>Is there any particular reason why you like bus stops?

Went on a trip across the Czech Republic after I dropped out of university seven years ago. Noticed a great amount of variety among the bus stops there, took pictures of the more interesting ones. It's become a proper hobby of mine since; I take a photo of pretty much any bus stop I come across.

Thanks for all these. My favorites are the Estonian and Danish bus stops. That Italian one is interesting. Is that a fountain in the middle, or maybe some sort of drainage?

Dude I have no idea. I just take pictures of bus stops. Have a couple Slovenian ones.


I live in a shitty country where +90% is desert , no natural scenes to take photos
Honestly it looks like pre-historic village mixed with 1900s technology
It looks like utter shit


I think the desert is beautiful.

I like these types of images. They're reminiscent of how old video game / cg textures were extracted from photos.

There's so much more crimes in sweden these days… where in sweden was this?


Do you guys have tips for getting into photography? Equipment to start? Guides? Or should I just check the norman chan?


A camera is a must of course. An entry-level DSLR will let you cover all focal ranges with extra lenses and offer full manual controls. Canon EOS, Nikon D3nnn, and some Sony A series fall under $350 WITH a standard zoom lens (even one with image stabilization). A great point and shoot can still be found for less though, and while usually offering really good zoom, you won't always have manual focus, shutter, or aperture adjustments. Modern cellphones come with great cameras that can automatically choose the best settings, and some even have both wide and standard focal lengths to switch between.

The real question though is what kind of photography are you interested in. Which kind of photographs do you see and like so much that you wish to reproduce the style? What irks you to taking up photography as a hobby? This effects greatly the kind of gear you need. Someone wanting to shoot insects will need macro equipment, someone wanting to shoot architecture should invest in wide lenses with tilt, run-and-gun street photography would work best with a quick automatic lens and stabilization handles, etc etc.

Are there any photographs in this or the previous thread that strike your fancy?

You'd fare well to look at general beginner guides on Youtube as these will give you some examples of possible styles and run you over the basics of getting the most out of any camera. Beware of Youtube photographer personalities though, they can be pretty annoying and even elitist. 4Chan is a good place for all levels of skill but /p/ sometimes fills up with bullies and meme information so be alert.
