Whats better: Gaming or Photography

#11carib2gPosted 1/25/2013 5:49:00 PM
I photograph a lot of nude and semi-nude women, so I could never talk ill of photography...

But I'll be damned if I have to choose between photography and games...

Thank god I don't have to LoL

My 2 cents.

point camera take a picture yeah that is real hard, get a real job hippie.


if you think thats all there is to photagraphy.....Im speechless, either your jk or completely and utterly ignorant to how deep and hard it is to learn everything or even a fraction of whats to be learnt in photography.....


sure you can point and click however your portfolio will look like a 5 year olds with no knowledge whatsoever on photography


I had to deal with people like him for years. He doesn't get it.

I am sick of all the overnight "professionals" who charge people to shoot their weddings when they have no experience. Photography is one of the most unethical f****** businesses around, and amateurs have made it that way.


Theres a reason why photography has been one of the most popular growing hobbies in the past few years and games sales has been declining.

I was a military photojournalist for 6 years, so photography by a long shot. It is one of my few passions.


very cool, when I got injured in the army I thought about doing that but chose to just get out completely instead.


You would have been trained at DINFOS at Ft. Meade. One if the top photography schools in the world

As a dude who just looks at pictures casually, they look the same to me.


And that's fine, but a lot of people are taking advantage of people like you and charging pro prices for s*** work. I have a problem with the prices some real professionals charge too. There is no ethical reason to charge two grand for a wedding shoot with digital images on a CD. I've seen it happen. This was my wedding package when I had a side business:

Full ceremony, plus pre-event poses, plus after-party at no extra charge.

All images put on a CD, plus 2 prints for each shot, plus a custom made poster layout for framing.

If I shot on film, all negatives given to customer with full rights to reprint, as long as I could use some for my portfolio if I chose to.

All of that for $500 plus travel expenses (if I drove over 40 miles)

I love both, I collect both. But you can't really compare them. Gaming lets you see fantasy worlds, photography let's you explore the real life world.

One thing that bugs me with photography is people enhancing their images. Especially landscapes, they don't need it, they're natural FFS. Wait for different light if you don't like the result. I never alter my images, I leave them how they are.

Wow, it isn't everyone else's fault that you would severly undercharge. How did you turn a profit? Where you using a disposable camera and getting the prints made for free or something?

I've spent far more on camera gear in the last 2 years or so than I have on games. Photo is more of a hobby that I take part in when the mood strikes, but I do video as a freelance thing.

I love both gaming and photography, but I will have to say that I've spent way more money on photography than gaming. If I had to choose one I would have to choose photography.

Gaming.

I fill my room with video games and game paraphernalia and I get called a nerd. I fill my room with candid photos of my neighbour in various states of undress and I get arrested.

I turned just enough profit to make it work for me. I did it for the art, and to see couples that were happy with my work.

Charging more than I did is fine, but some of those guys are overcharging to take advantage of special occasions. That's why I provided them with the negatives. The event would seem a bit less special if I kept the copyright and made them go through me for additional prints.

And no disposables for me. Only Nikon SLRs and digital SLRs. I shot with an old F-3 for a long time, then I got a Nikon D1X. Now I just do photography for myself with my tried and true D-100.
