Is anybody else bothered by these posts of the general form "camera on a tripod...landscape shot"?

My understanding of this thread is that it was established so that people could teach others how to take pictures that required a tricky or unusual setup (cf. the many water-drop shots when it first started). I'm pretty sure that even the rankest beginner can figure out how to put a camera on a tripod and point it at something scenic.

Even the portrait-studio shots are often unhelpful, unless they reveal an interesting lighting technique.

All I want is a 10-2000 f/0.5L with no distortion that weighs 100 grams, fits in my pocket, and costs $300. Is that too much to ask?

Fair enough.

However, I still like seeing the contrast between a setup shot and what the final photo looks like. It's fun.

If there's significant post-processing involved, I agree that it's fun. I went to a great talk tonight by a woman who is half photographer, half painter. What she does is fantastic (and I could never imitate it).

But even then, aren't there threads for talking about how post-processing was done? This one is about the setup, not about what happened after the shutter button was pushed.

I'm with Max, I like to see the bigger picture of the scene and then to see what they focused in on as their point of interest and the contrast in the final shot.

I understand your point but I'd rather see that sort of picture than another bloody moon or water drop. But if we keep it varied everyone gets something they have an interest in.

Talking of which, anyone got a good setup up shot of Katy Perry's bum?

I'm really struggling to understand why anybody would be bothered by such 'setup' shot being displayed

While I admit seeing behind the scenes of a super dooper studio set up can certainly be enlightening and helpful, I fail to see how anything else can be so bothersome
People are hardly gonna stop posting their lighting and studio set ups if others just show a "camera on a tripod...landscape shot"

I always thought this forum was about sharing images, and the more the merrier I say

I don't mind the sharing, but you have to admit that putting your camera on a tripod...it's not much of a setup. I always considered this thread to be the place where people would post stuff that wasn't as easy as slapping a camera on a tripod. Put some effort into it, actually build some type of setup, that's the idea behind the thread.


But, since I'm not the thread king, people can post whatever they want. I will do like I always do, breeze past those "setups" that aren't really setups, without even stopping to look...

But if its a tripod in a very unusual location or position, its really does show what pains people are prepared to go to, to get the shot

It should go without saying that "showing your set-up" scenerio is for the technically competent photographer who is grasping for new methods to capture images without pouring mega-dollars into the equation.
That said...I also grow weary of landscape-tripod-images unless there is a viable reason for it's display.

I don't mind the basic setup posts. Sure some are more boring than others but they keep the thread going. Just scroll past the ones you dont like.

No, not really. But like I said, people can post what they want, I'll just ignore it like I always do. No sweat off me...and that's all I have to say about that.
