I've been hating my photos lately...

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I feel like I've been in a serious slump this semester.

In general, when I look back at my photos from last year or even last fall, I feel like I've lost something in the intervening months. It's not like I'm not shooting--on the contrary, I've shot well over 2000 frames on my D7000 and I shot probably a dozen rolls of film this semester on N2020. But of all the shots I've taken, only about 700 or so were ones I shot for my own pleasure. I shot hundreds and hundreds as part of my officer position in my fraternity, which is to be expected, but those almost seem to be turning out better than the ones I've taken for fun. Film has been an interesting experience, and I really enjoyed the almost zen-like process of developing and printing, but I can't easily maintain my film shooting next year as I won't have darkroom access and I don't have a space where I can really just sit and develop film.

Today the weather was gorgeous, so I decided to take a break from studying for finals and went to the Cleveland Botanical Garden. Great light, lots of flowers in bloom, almost nobody there. I feel like I got some decent shots with my Tokina, but with the rest of my lenses, I've just been really bored/nonplussed recently. In fact, my Tokina is probably the only lens I have right now that I really enjoy shooting with on a regular basis. It's sharp, beautifully made, and the focal length is making me really think about perspective and where I position myself relative to my subject. Having been such a huge sucker for shallow depth of field and great bokeh, I've been forcing myself to stop down to f/8 or f/11 and get shots that focus more on the whole composition as opposed to just a single isolated subject. Overall it's been a fun exercise, but I now I'm finding it harder and harder to get those shallow shots I love.

Which brings me to my other two lenses. I've had my 70-300 VR for a year and a half and my Sigma for a year, and both of them are still leaving something to be desired. With my 70-300, I've never been terribly impressed. Below 135 I think it's a brilliant lens as it's razor sharp, focuses fast, and just seems to have a "pop" that I really love. And the fact that I can handhold down to like 1/15 at 70 mm is great. But once I get out to 200 and beyond, I hate this lens. It doesn't balance well in my hands, so even when I've got plenty of light I have trouble shooting much below about 1/100. Also, it just seems horribly soft out that far, and I can't ever seem to consistently get good photos. My Sigma on the other hand, was a fantastic lens when I first started using it on my D5000. But since then, I feel like it just wasn't meant for my D7000. Stopped down to about f/4 it's great, but wide open it misses focus way too often for my tastes, and it doesn't focus in live view.

I'm almost to the point where I'm ready to just sell both lenses and get new gear. Seeing as I rarely need f/1.4 and pretty much can't use it anyway, the prospect of switching to a 35 f/1.8 and making a bit of money back in the progress is really appealing. As far as my tele, the only time I seem to use it these days is when I'm shooting IM games for my fraternity, which I hate anyway because it's always too dark to really get good shots with this slow of a lens. I also really miss having a midrange zoom. It may be one of Nikon's cheapest lenses, but some of my favorite photos were taken with my 18-55 VR. I'm tempted to just abandon having a long tele for the moment and then just getting by with either a short to moderate tele prime or just a zoom with a decent telephoto region.

The lens combos I've been strongly considering recently are:

16-85 VR or 17-55 f/2.8 + 180 f/2.8 or maybe a 105 f/2.8 macro -> Both zooms are supposed to be phenomenal lenses on crop bodies, but there's a huge amount of overlap with my 12-24, so that makes it seem a little impractical.

24-120 f/4 VR -> Stabilized, supposed to be pretty sharp overall, and a great range, but people don't seem to talk about this lens too much...

28-70 f/2.8 AF-S -> Gets me a little more reach over the 17-55 but still gets me f/2.8. Only problem is that 28 isn't all that wide and it's a freakin' brick.

Tokina 28-70 f/2.8 or f/2.6-2.8 -> Cheap, lightweight, and supposed to be pretty sharp overall.

Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 -> Same as above, but Tamron always has such dinky build quality...

Overall, I don't know what to do. Maybe I'm just crazy.

Step 2: Everybody slumps. I barely shot anything for the last 5 months, but I'm finally getting back into a groove. Sometimes other things in your life can have a negative impact on your photography -- it's like this with any art form. Some people have enough extraneous time to turn their life struggles into great art, but working 10-14 hours a day -- I don't, and never will. Let some other people look at your work -- even if you hate it. Anyone who can offer a legitimate critique will get you back on track with thinkign about your photos, not the gear you need/want/have to use to make them.

That would be useful advice, if it weren't for the fact that I don't pixel peep to begin with. When I'm post-processing, the only time I zoom in at all is if I'm adding some sharpening to the photo. But when I can easily tell at 15% zoom that I missed focus or the fine detail is totally smeared over, I think that's a little different.

You need to explore as the others basically have been suggesting. I started my photography back in June of 2011 with my D40 and did everything possible, macro, long exposures, sea scapes, wide angle, urban ruins, hdr, portraits, etc. I'm now doing video on my D7000 for people. It takes a while to find the nitch you want to stick with but my advice for getting into one thing is do everything and do it regularly till you found the best genre of work for you.

My suggestions for lenses that are managable:

Prime: Nikon 35mm 1.8 (1.4 won't matter much as you've said and the paper thin dof makes more unusable everyday shots in dark situations then usable ones if below 2.8 (imo))
Mid Range: Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 (Haven't tried myself, it's popular, cheap (relatively speaking), and versatile (Nikon's 18-55 is good as well if you don't need the extra stops of light)
Telephoto: Sigma 50-150 2.8 OS (Coming out soon, got the heft and actual focal range of a 70-200) (Alternatives if it's pricey: Tamron or Sigma 70-200 2.8's non-OS)
Macro: Nikon new 105mm 2.8 VR Macro or Tokina 100mm 2.8 Macro (Reverse macro works awesome as well if you need to hold back on the macro lens for a bit and can get close to the subject ~2-8 inches)
Wide: You have one already

These are just some options I think would work well even if you only get a few in your bag in the end, I know I always keep my select lenses I couldn't do my shots without

The fact that you ended your post with gear contemplation says to me that you're too busy worrying about having the right equipment than working towards refining your style. Go out with one camera and one lens for a month. See what happens, you might be surprised to find how much you can hone your vision by knowing exactly how something is going to be framed, and work the scene into or out of the photo.

Speaking of looking at other peoples' work:

These are from a friend in Sweden, who is absolutely killing it with snowboarding photography. Challenge what you know about exposure, framing -- everything. Shoot stuff you normally wouldn't. Try everything until you find something that works. I hope you get some motivation flowing soon, and I'd be happy to recommend some books/art blogs/photographers you should check out if you're so inclined.
