Different Techniques to Achieve Color Splashing

What is Color Splashing? Color splashing is a basic picture editing method that is utilized to accentuate specific features of a photograph. By leaving specific areas of a photograph colored, and filling the rest of the picture with grayscale, you are able to highlight certain parts of a picture to create them stand out. Probabilities are, you have possibly noticed a colour splashed photograph prior to reading this article but you just don’t know what it is called. Though some modern DSLRs today have a digital filter that can separate a single color from the other (Like a Pentax K-m), I’d...

Most people are easily fascinated by the photos that they see. Some people adore different colors, great sceneries, beautiful models, sexy bodies, wild animals, buildings, structures, flowers, fruits, plants, celestial bodies, and even the smallest possible insect that you could ever possibly see.

Tripods : When To Bring and When NOT to Bring

Carrying a Tripod Obviously, this isn’t a rocket science blanket recommendation, but something to think about if you are likely to face lighting conditions that will require a super slow shutter speed. On the contrary, packing a tripod can slow you down, be awkwardly bulky, and certainly identifies you to everyone around you as a photographer. In its favor, you can make exposures as long as you like and keep the camera locked onto a view for which you might want to vary the settings. Everyone has their own preferences for style of tripod, but the light, strong materials like carbon fiber,...

Taking the Moon’s Image With a Handheld Shot

It is almost impossible for me to shoot hand-held to take the moon’s image at a really sharp focus. How I wish I could do it myself. If you want to try, go ahead. But I wouldn’t sweat it if I were you. I have learned that to capture the image of the moon, you should equip your camera with a minimum of 200 mm lens. (Thanks to stopshootingauto.com ) Generally, the longer your lens can reach, the better. If you would like to increase your lens’ focal length without buying a whole new lens, you can opt to use teleconverters. Teleconverters come in different specs, some with 1.4 and...

Deciding Your Priorities On Low Light Photography

Low-light photography is specialized in that you are always pushing the technical limits. By definition,there is never quite enough light to allow the ideal camera settings, and you will always forfeit something. This area of shooting is all about thresholds and trade offs. There are three main technical variables: Shutter Speed, Aperture, and ISO. You will need to decide which has priority.   Shutter Priority Refers to a setting on some cameras that allows the user to choose a specific shutter speed while the camera adjusts the aperture to ensure correct exposure. This is different from...

100% Sharpness Check: Targeting the Correct Part of the Scene

Getting the subject sharply focused is such a basic skill that it tends to be overlooked in the examination of other image qualities, such as white balance and highlight prevention. Yet it is arguably the most important quality of all. Many other mistakes are recoverable in post-production, but even a modest loss of sharp focus can make an image worthless. If you are aiming for impressionistic and experimental results, then fine, but for straightforward shooting, pin-sharp focus in the key area of the image is an absolute necessity. We wrote “basic skill,” but these days few photographers...

How To Hold A Camera

Don’t take this badly. We all know how hold to a camera, but there is no absolutely standard grip, and everyone has his or her little variations.  But there are all variations on common – and commonsense-principles.  The examples here cover different lenses and the switch between horizontal and vertical.  The fewer controls that you need to operate by hand, such as focus or zoom, the more the grip you can devote to steadying the camera. Basic Elbows tucked in the chest, camera held firmly back to forehead.  Wide firm grip around camera with right hand, all fingers supporting except...

Exploring the Subject

There may be more to a scene than the first thing you see. This applies as much to different views of a building or landscape as it does to an event involving people engaged in some activity. Human nature being what it is, however, once we think we’ve caught the essence of the subject and have a few good shots in the can, it is very tempting to call it a day and move on. This isn’t necessarily laziness, more like complacency. Paradoxically, the better the shot you feel you’ve just taken, the less it’s likely that you’ll want to hang around. But you may be missing out. There...
