Still working on my photography, before I upgrade my lense. Lmk what ya'll think of this new shot of our beanie.
Your photography is alright not bad!
Thanks fam, currently working with a d3200 on the standard 18-55mm lense. Wanna step it up to a 50mm soon. 
Idk about making a 50mm your next lens, 50mm focal distance is a lot of commitment haha
What would you recommend that isn't extremely pricey?
Something with more focal range to play with,
50mm is stuck at 50mm you have to be an exact distance to get the right photo
and sometimes not all the detail youd' want.

Fuck with something around 16-50 (in that range)
idk Nikon lenses but its best to have a good solid range,

I shoot with my 17-40L for Cannon and the only other lens id use
is a 17-35mm but I rent that.

Try renting.
That makes sense when you put it that way. I'm gonna Yelp some shops that offer rentals. Thanks fam, btw where you from?
Close to the LA area, bout 30 mins east.
Theres not too many shops like that
but there are enough online places to rent.

would it be wise to invest in a solid camera to use for shooting everything other than your photo shoots, like for example updates and previews of clothes to post to blogs/facebook.

Whats your opinion? Do you have your own camera for your company/brand?

 In my situation a close mate of mine has a camera, is it better to save myself $400 on a camera and just use his for everything, or buy one for myself?
try to get a nice  camera, the canon rebels are super cheap right now, remember the camera isnt the one that take the good pgotos, its you the photographer and the lightning! Buying a expensive camera doesn't mean you get professional shots.

I think it would be a wise investment if you are the type of person who can handle the work. Personally, the benefit I see with doing your own work is that you save money and you don't have to rely on other people to get stuff done. You'd be surprised how many people are unreliable fucks. In the end, you are the most reliable person.

Currently, I do everything from product shots to lookbook shots with an absolutely terrible camera and zero photography experience. Although my photography isn't the greatest it has been a great learning experience. I plan on investing in a new camera this summer to keep doing everything myself.

If it's your best friend thats definitely a plus, the only problem is you'd have to work around his schedule and explain your vision instead of sculpting it yourself. I'd say if you have the funds buy a camera. Also for the people who aren't fortunate to have a friend , hiring a quality photographer can get pricey depending on your resources. If you're more of the self dependent type I'd definitely say invest in your own camera. Also for a side note be ready to spend over 400$ for a quality camera
yeah hes my best mate, who's picked up photography recently and is learning fast. I see him pretty much everyday of the week so finding the time isn't an issue really, he knows what I want and has done a fantastic job recently and is happy to continue to do so. I've got to take in account that by the start of next year we will be going separate ways so until then I'll continue to have his helping hand, long way away but the plan would be to invest in a camera by then and learn a thing or two from him so I can continue from pretty much where he left off.

On the other hand other promotional work (pictures of labels, sneak peaks, stickers and pretty much everything other than the actually shooting of the drop/tee/line) I will and have been using my iPhone, which definitely gets the point across but isn't to the standard of the photos from the photoshoot. Thoughts on this? In by answering my own question I can definitely use my friend for all this stuff to, or is it not really necessarily?

appreciate the feedback, cheers

This is a random something from a fellow f*ck up...think about what it is that you're trying to convey and make something people want to wear. Stock art and hot garbage doesn't pair well with a great brand message ...and a subpar brand message also doesn't go well with well designed work that no one understands. I find myself having been or being in all your guys shoes ALL THE TIME and I'm struggling ALL THE TIME.

Something that really might speak to a few of you guys is you have to listen to what people tell you.It's not always going to be right, and it might be some of the dumbest stuff you'll ever hear, but listen....the less people and resources you have,the more you will have to interpret wtf people are saying if you'd like to "stay alive".

There are times where I had to realize, not everyone wears purple and black shirts work better for this guy...or that even though a model doesn't do ANYTHING for me, it might set something off for that one person over in the MidWest or wherever else...really listen to the info people give you,especially if they have a certain taste or sensibilty that says 'hey, I used my brain to think of this,and it might help you'....apply that as soon as possible, ESPECIALLY if they support your brand or are genuinely planning to.

I read like 9-10 peoples abouts over the last few days and they sounded like 'Hungry Human' to me, but without any actual thought behind them...and it made me realize how bad I'm slacking that no one on here said , "yo,bruh, that sounds like HH"...so...I am going to sit here and think about what I need to do to convey my brand message more and the like...you have to be critical and actually want more than mediocre...and despite this maybe being new, you guys have an idea of what you want....or you should if you're on here...so explore that. Think about what really speaks to you, whether a song,image,sentence...whatever....I'm not going to get much deeper into the process, but make it look like there is some effort involved.

When I look at the majority of this stuff...all I think is that you guys got really hyped and picked up a thesarus then started using big words to describe broad ideas and sound cool with hopes of getting to Pink Dolphin territory (i.e. we're getting money and touting a lifestyle so hard no one cares about anything we're about , just buying the gear)...that's not really sustainable.

If you want to make clothes to make money...you can make Brony shirts or sell cruddy sublimination shirts for a reasonable price and make some quick dough...it's a lot easier than ripping off OF,Diamond....or whatever the eff else and calling it a parody then getting ripped up by the kids on here as they point out your insultingly bad work.

Sometimes even then, the stuff may not sell and you may wonder why...but in between, you might have to hustle...I don't mean half off this , post that...I mean...I've sold stuff in Detroit ghettos to get home and worse...it's a lot of work at times.So , really think about how committed you are to this or if you just want to be guy # 089089809890890890 with a cruddy clothing brand for 6 months.That might be more important for some to think about than "designs"...It matters.

I'm reading this and it sounds like I think I'm the man or something...please don't read it as such..but you have to really put in work to see results the majority of the time.It's not just diamonds,dolphins,dream chasin',dolla dolla ,supreme parody whatever else....get to work and maybe I can help some of you if I see something...do the same for me too though eh? I'm not perfect and I'm hoping to take this much further! Hope that spoke to someone! -h_h-

Just curious, are you the owner of Hungry Human Clothing? If so, you're probably struggling because your designs are weak. Again, not trying to be mean, just my honest opinion. The one cool shirt I thought y'all had was the Power Rangers so that's something. I do agree with you though, you can't just throw some crap on a shirt and try to sell it and expect to make it big. I've been going through design after design for the past three months and I've finally narrowed it down to 5 that I am very happy with. It's tough and it takes time. You have to be willing to put in the work and understand that designing clothes and running a clothing company is not for everyone. I know this may sound ridiculous coming from the guy who has yet to put anything out, but I feel fairly confident that when I do release my first line, all will go well. If we're being honest, the whole "streetwear" scene is extremely over saturated and is filled with a bunch of the same stuff (camo, drug references, half naked women, some tribal crap, etc.). If you really want to start a clothing brand, please take your time, do your research, make sure you're not contributing to the huge pile of crap that is already out there, and BE ORIGINAL. Hope I'm not coming off as some know it all douche on this thread, but I wouldn't blame people for thinking so haha I just try to keep it honest and speak my mind.

whats is the easiest way to think of a clothing brand name?
There is no easy way. Find out what interests you the most and what letters you like and go from there..

I have a brand that is still pretty new, the brand's name is "FUCK YOUR HUSTLE" and I KNOW that our tees are definitely not for everybody, and I already know that it limits who would even think about buying our products, but it's a risk I decided to take, and while it helps to instantly get peoples attention, it definitely hurts sales. So I've been focusing more on getting designs without the word FUCK on them, and I made a new url for our site which is http://ShopFYH.com 

The brand has been a learning experience, and a fun side project of mine that also got me more into photography/video cause I didn't want to have to rely on anyone else to do all of that for me, and now I have the ability to get all the promo material I want a lot easier. That is something I'd highly suggest investing in, a nice camera and taking some time to learn. The brand has also helped me with a lot of great networking opportunities, so anyone that thinks it's a waste of time, I beg to differ and wouldn't have changed anything from my experience so far. I also have a few porn stars rocking our brand, and a lot of rappers, and youtubers, so we're not trying to be anything we're not, considering our brand name, and most of our tee designs so far.

Here's some pics from different shoots I've done, and to showcase some of our tees and what not. I'm not against any constructive criticism, just keep in mind what I already said about knowing the negatives of having the word FUCK in my brand name and on my tees! 

FUCK YOUR HUSTLE LINKS:
http://ShopFYH.com
http://facebook.com/FYourHustle
http://twitter.com/FuckYourHustle
http://instagram.com/agentspits
http://youtube.com/FuckYourHustle
http://fuckyourhustle.tumblr.com
VINE APP = "AGENTSPITS"













If you know it's not smart to have the word "fuck" in your brand name and try to get more designs without the word "fuck" ,then why even have it incorporated? save time and creativity on something with a deeper meaning ,Also your brand name is "Fuck Your Hustle" but the only design that's posted is "Good things happen to those who hustle" .....I don't get what you are trying to say / portray??????

Is it safe to say that some of the big brands in streetwear have gotten lazy with there designs or is it just that they are simply trying to keep the money coming in..in order to get to that 20 year mark as a brand..

Thoughts?
If you're going to say that you might as well say which brands exactly? that's a pretty vague question..

I mean it's kinda obvious who he means. If you've paid attention on this thread at all you can take a wild guess and think supreme, diamond, obey, etc.

Still working on my photography, before I upgrade my lense. Lmk what ya'll think of this new shot of our beanie.
Your photography is alright not bad!
Thanks fam, currently working with a d3200 on the standard 18-55mm lense. Wanna step it up to a 50mm soon. 
Idk about making a 50mm your next lens, 50mm focal distance is a lot of commitment haha
What would you recommend that isn't extremely pricey?
Something with more focal range to play with,
50mm is stuck at 50mm you have to be an exact distance to get the right photo
and sometimes not all the detail youd' want.

Fuck with something around 16-50 (in that range)
idk Nikon lenses but its best to have a good solid range,

I shoot with my 17-40L for Cannon and the only other lens id use
is a 17-35mm but I rent that.

Try renting.

50mm is good for potrait shots. I love that lens because is has a great focus point if you are doing smaller size items because of the crop area. Face, hats, pins, stickers stuff like that can be used with a straight 50mm
From the recent readinf I have been doing you can probably use a 35mm for full body shots and still ge some decent detail and crop space.
TTLspeedlight flash and a diffuser is a must as well.
bad Lighting will fck up up a photo.

Ive been working on a few designs for this summer's release and I wanted some feedback on this design in particular. If theres anything i should change, i would be glad to hear it from you guys! I only have the low opacity AXCIE across the image just in case since someone had token the GUAP design which really really sucks. Does anyone know if the CRUEL SUMMER would be a copyright since it was an album or would that be free use?

Asking for advice from a forum of amateurs who think they know what they're doing is your first misstep. Heres something though, there are no rules to clothing, no guide book or how-to. The only way you are going to get anywhere is to make something and make people see it, not by telling a bunch of teenagers that that you have a great idea.

I read like 9-10 peoples abouts over the last few days and they sounded like 'Hungry Human' to me, but without any actual thought behind them...and it made me realize how bad I'm slacking that no one on here said , "yo,bruh, that sounds like HH"...so...I am going to sit here and think about what I need to do to convey my brand message more and the like...you have to be critical and actually want more than mediocre...and despite this maybe being new, you guys have an idea of what you want....or you should if you're on here...so explore that. Think about what really speaks to you, whether a song,image,sentence...whatever....I'm not going to get much deeper into the process, but make it look like there is some effort involved.

When I look at the majority of this stuff...all I think is that you guys got really hyped and picked up a thesarus then started using big words to describe broad ideas and sound cool with hopes of getting to Pink Dolphin territory (i.e. we're getting money and touting a lifestyle so hard no one cares about anything we're about , just buying the gear)...that's not really sustainable.

If you want to make clothes to make money...you can make Brony shirts or sell cruddy sublimination shirts for a reasonable price and make some quick dough...it's a lot easier than ripping off OF,Diamond....or whatever the eff else and calling it a parody then getting ripped up by the kids on here as they point out your insultingly bad work.

Sometimes even then, the stuff may not sell and you may wonder why...but in between, you might have to hustle...I don't mean half off this , post that...I mean...I've sold stuff in Detroit ghettos to get home and worse...it's a lot of work at times.So , really think about how committed you are to this or if you just want to be guy # 089089809890890890 with a cruddy clothing brand for 6 months.That might be more important for some to think about than "designs"...It matters.

I'm reading this and it sounds like I think I'm the man or something...please don't read it as such..but you have to really put in work to see results the majority of the time.It's not just diamonds,dolphins,dream chasin',dolla dolla ,supreme parody whatever else....get to work and maybe I can help some of you if I see something...do the same for me too though eh? I'm not perfect and I'm hoping to take this much further! Hope that spoke to someone! -h_h-
Just curious, are you the owner of Hungry Human Clothing? If so, you're probably struggling because your designs are weak. Again, not trying to be mean, just my honest opinion. The one cool shirt I thought y'all had was the Power Rangers so that's something. I do agree with you though, you can't just throw some crap on a shirt and try to sell it and expect to make it big. I've been going through design after design for the past three months and I've finally narrowed it down to 5 that I am very happy with. It's tough and it takes time. You have to be willing to put in the work and understand that designing clothes and running a clothing company is not for everyone. I know this may sound ridiculous coming from the guy who has yet to put anything out, but I feel fairly confident that when I do release my first line, all will go well. If we're being honest, the whole "streetwear" scene is extremely over saturated and is filled with a bunch of the same stuff (cam, drug references, half naked women, some tribal crap, etc.). If you really want to start a clothing brand, please take your time, do your research, make sure you're not contributing to the huge pile of crap that is already out there, and BE ORIGINAL. Hope I'm not coming off as some know it all douche on this thread, but I wouldn't blame people for thinking so haha I just try to keep it honest and speak my mind.
All you did was say the majority of what I said in different words while not giving any constructive criticism."Your designs are weak, I've been around three months and haven't released anything , but I'm sure I'm going to do well..."...best of luck with that one dude...To the other people that understood where I was coming from, get at me and I might be able to help out! Be well everybody! -h_h-
Yeah, that's why I said, "I do agree with you" haha and way to quote me out of context. I don't know what else you want me to say, your designs are weak because they look like a bunch of amateurish drawings. I also said that your Power Rangers shirt is cool, but that's about the only one I thought was cool. Also, your descriptions for your shirts are kind of ridiculous. It may just be me, but I don't understand any of them. I really wasn't and am not trying to be mean, but just giving my honest opinion and feedback which is what this thread is about. If you want to get butt hurt about it that's up to you.

Trying to Start up a Clothing line here in NYC. Gotta couple of good artists and a great central idea. Any helpful tips ? ..........And i also was thinking about doing SnapBacks. How do i create Custom Hats or do i just try to make them myself. Any Help ?
Asking for advice from a forum of amateurs who think they know what they're doing is your first misstep. Heres something though, there are no rules to clothing, no guide book or how-to. The only way you are going to get anywhere is to make something and make people see it, not by telling a bunch of teenagers that that you have a great idea.
I don't get why people always post stuff like this when someone asks for help. The whole point of this thread is for people wanting to start a New Brand to ask questions and get feedback. It's just not cool and it makes you look like a douche when you shoot someone down when they ask for help. @2damndope I would suggest doing a lot of research. You're going to have to find out what kind of shirts you want to use, find a screen printer, a label maker, create social media accounts for your brand and come up with a solid marketing strategy. As far as snapbacks go, I have no idea about that, but I suggest you really make sure you have some good designs for your snapbacks because that is one of the most overly saturated parts of the industry right now. Hope this helps and best of luck!

People take their clothing lines way too serious...
You've been on here for a month... at lease explain how you came to that conclusion
Because people go way into detail with their brand. They write about how they're going to change the world or do some inspirational shit. Feels like the market is saturated with these type of brands there's no need to keep adding to the pile. Keep it plain and simple. You're not going to change the world or better yet inspire someone through a piece of clothing... RELAX
 
word, i agree with this . . . every brand nowadays is that same anti-establishment corny shit

think of it like this . . . would someone from supreme or bape or original fake say that corny ass shit

This
site is legit/actually quality? I have some hat ideas and I like how
nothing seems to be out of their ability, but after reading that USA-New
Zealand-China chart, I'm worried about ordering from outside of the
USA.

Everything from that site is made in Vietnam and their
minimum order is 50 pieces. I don't wanna be either stuck with 50 shitty
quality hats or have to push and sell 50 shitty quality hats and give
people a bad taste of the brand.

Anyone got advice or experience with this vendor?

I gave him the most valuable piece of advice anyone on this forum could give; do whatever you want, there is always another person out there that will like what you like. As for your 'advice', I would hope anyone who made it to this thread would already realize that you need a screen printer to make shirts and that you can't be everywhere at once so the internet helps with that.

On another note, social media can be a curse in disguise, don't sell yourself short by signing up for every social media site yielded in your google search.

This is a random something from a fellow f*ck up...think about what it is that you're trying to convey and make something people want to wear. Stock art and hot garbage doesn't pair well with a great brand message ...and a subpar brand message also doesn't go well with well designed work that no one understands. I find myself having been or being in all your guys shoes ALL THE TIME and I'm struggling ALL THE TIME.

Something that really might speak to a few of you guys is you have to listen to what people tell you.It's not always going to be right, and it might be some of the dumbest stuff you'll ever hear, but listen....the less people and resources you have,the more you will have to interpret wtf people are saying if you'd like to "stay alive".

camouflage, cocaine, rap lyrics, logo flips, religious symbols, renaissance era paintings, cartoon characters, guns, and animal prints are 95% of what the streetwear game consists of. honestly, the whole game has reached endgame in my opinion.

Looking up one of the brands they used as a sample image of prior work done, I'm pretty sure this hat was made by that company: http://www.bombclothes.com/clothing/box-logo You could buy that hat to test out the quality.
