What filters do u use on a DSLR with a 50mm lens for pics of flowers in a cabinet with grow lights on?Welcome to the 420 Fotographer Collective where we bring together the best growtographers for a fun and interactive discussion on gear, techniques, how-to sessions, or just to share a nice picture.
Here you will find biographies of real 420 members, what gear they use, what they grow, and some tips and tricks to help you take better photos.
This is very important. Having a good camera, gear, and post production software mean nothing. Incredible art can be captured with any camera. Do not get fooled. Todays smart phones and point and shoot cameras kick some serious butt. If you want to know about using a DSLR technique with a point and shoot. Ask away. Someone will help you.
Everyone is welcome here, as is standard at 420 Magazine, and you are encouraged to ask questions or show off something you find helpful. Now, this is not your beginners thread, as there are a few camera basics and photography terms you should be familiar with before diving into the advanced stuff. Now that said, you can jump right in, because we will show you and you are just that smart. Pick and choose what works for you.
Understanding the owners manual of your camera is important. Here are a few other links to help you get started:

To get us started we will require some experts. An expert is anyone with an advanced understanding of something compared to the average general public. So in that frame of reference I am going to call upon some folks to share their love of cannabis and photography with us. In reality we will all improve together.

I know I will have missed a few photographer type folks, admins, others due to the sheer size of this site. If this resonates with you please join the conversation.
I was experimenting with different light sources and settings on my camera tonight and found that the "Program AE" mode allows me to up and lower the exposure which helps blacken out the background in the photos without having to perform any post editing. Enjoy!
@Amy Gardner Simply stunning.. the camera loves purple buds. I always plant a purple one not only for the smoke but the esthetic value every time I open the tent lol. Aloha Amy!
@CADBOY Beautiful photos. I’m quite fond of getting flower pictures in nature. Something about capturing the soul in the moment.
Absolutely this!always plant a purple one not only for the smoke but the esthetic value every time I open the tent lol. Aloha Amy!
That’s a lovely pic CADBOY . A lovely exapmple that great pics don’t necessarily require a fancy camera - phone cameras are getting pretty fancy these days of course, but I’m sure y’all know what I mean.
