Essential Tips For Budding Photographers - Monitor Calibration To Have Grea
2007-08-07 23:20:00
As you get more and more comfortable with your camera, you can experiment further with its settings to be able to get more out of it. Learning about how to manipulate your camera's white balance calibration can do wonders for your photographs.Whether you are studying to be a professional photographer or just want to be more adept with your hobby, it is important to realize that light is one of the most important factors to consider when taking a photograph. After all, the etymology of the word photograph comes from the combination of two Greek words: photo, which means light, and graphics which loosely translated means paintbrush.Given this, we can see that fundamentally, photographs are painting pictures with light. Basic physics taught us that objects emit light and we use our cameras to capture this light to be able to produce an image.In extremely well lit situations such as outdoor on a sunny day, there is a possibility that the photographs we take can become over exposed, whi...

Power For Your Camera
2007-08-06 23:28:00
One of the issues with digital cameras is the issue of power. Digital cameras require a lot of battery power, especially when using the LCD screen on the back of the camera.When you buy a digital camera, rechargeable batteries are a must. Some cameras come standard with rechargeable batteries, while others do not. Either way, you will want to make sure you have at least two sets of rechargeable batteries.There are several different rechargeable batteries on the market. NiMH an abbreviation for nickel metal hydride will perform the best, allowing you to recharge the batteries at any time while still holding their capacity.Lithium ion batteries also hold their capacity fairly well. NiCad an abbreviation for nickel cadmium batteries are more temperamental, creating a "memory effect" if not charged properly. NiCad batteries will lose their capacity over time, so if given the choice choose lithium ion batteries.If your camera came with a proprietary lithium ion rechargeable battery, read...

The Importance Of Mega Pixels
2007-08-06 23:25:00
One big part of the digital camera will be the number of Mega Pixels it has and whether or not it will be enough for the type of photos you want to print.Basically it is a unit of measurement in an image. If you think of your picture as a series of dots which it is the more densely the dots are put together, the better your picture will look.The number of pixels will determine the quality of your final photo. If you choose too few, your pictures wont be what you want them to be. If you choose too many, you are probably going to spending more money than you need to.The higher the number of pixels, the better the resolution. The higher the resolution, the larger and higher quality prints you can make. Higher quality photos take up more space on your media card, but they will give you the best prints.For many people, this is the most difficult part of buying a digital camera. How much is enough and how much is too much? Here are a few pointers to help you along the way.2 Mega Pixels or...

Getting Started As A Digital Photographer
2007-08-05 15:39:00
Digital and film photography are far more alike than they are different, but digital image recording opens up many new, valuable and perhaps unanticipated opportunities. For starters, assume that everything you already know about getting good pictures still applies.You won't find it in the box, but every digital camera comes with a license to experiment, test, tweak and screw up to your heart's content. With the cost of another shot at nothing, why hold back? The pros typically take dozens of shots to land a few keepers. Now you can do the same, and there's no better or faster way to learn. Instant feedback is one of digital photography's most powerful advantages.Sit down with your camera's manual as soon as you can. Some cameras come with a basic printed manual to get started and a complete manual that will come on CD. You should read both. Digital cameras are sophisticated devices with capabilities you might not anticipate from your film experience. You might be able to fake ...

Composition In Photography
2007-08-05 15:36:00
The art of composition or putting the picture together in the viewfinder can make the difference between a good picture and a bad one! It is a visual process of organizing the elements and individual details of a scene into a balanced and pleasing arrangement. Because what one person finds pleasing, someone else will not, composition is largely a matter of personal taste.There is no right or wrong composition in photography. A composition that conveys a photographers intended meaning is an effective one. A composition that does not or that confuses the viewer is not.There are certain rules of composition that most photographers agree will make the best pictures. However, the word rules is used loosely here as they are intended to simply be guidelines to take great pictures.They are based on recreating similarities in the make-up of many different images that many people have found to be esthetically-pleasing. A rule of composition or a design concept should not be taken as a hard an...

Photography - Finding The Right Light
2007-08-05 15:34:00
Light - the primary source of energy for the universe - is the central image of many religions and the photographers chief resource. The word photography derives from the Greek and means, literally, light writing.From the relentless power of full sun over water to the beam from a single candle, it is light photographers play with, light in its many moods and manifestations that we capture on film.Digital cameras use a light-sensitive chip rather than film to capture an image. The camera is designed to let light through a hole (aperture) on to the chip for a limited amount of time (exposure). Digital cameras use auto exposure to take care of exposing the picture for you. But there are a few things about aperture and exposure that you should be aware of.A digital camera will gather the same amount of light with a large aperture and a short exposure or with a small aperture and a long exposure, but the image will not look the same. A wider aperture will reduce the depth of field, so th...

Flash Photography
2007-08-05 15:31:00
There is probably no type of photography that is more disappointing to the beginner than flash photography. Unlike natural-light photography, where what you see can often be what you get, it is difficult to visualize what the effects of using flash will be. Flash is shut off until the moment of exposure, and then its illumination is too brief to visually evaluate what it does to your picture.The real learning process occurs over time, with trial and error. You should not expect to become an instant expert at flash photography, but persistence and observation (constantly comparing your pictures with earlier ones, and identifying not only the problems to overcome, but the successes you have achieved) will give you the experience you need to control flash and produce consistently-good flash pictures.Generally, poor lighting conditions results in poor pictures. Usually you do not need flash for normal daytime outdoor shots unless its very gloomy. Keep in mind that flash has a very limit...

Avoiding The Shimmy Shake While Taking A Picture
2007-08-05 15:28:00
Very few people have a completely steady hand when they hold their camera. Movement is natural, and shaking while taking a picture can be awful for the outcome and what you are left with. Camera movement is the most common cause of blurry pictures. How can you stop the shaking?If you are like me, I bought a digital camera with image stabilization. It has been a Godsend for me since I have a constant problem with shaky hands. But there are ways to minimize shakiness when taking pictures.When a point and shoot picture is taken, the shutter stays open just long enough to make a good exposure. If there is not enough light, the shutter stays open so long that the image is blurred by the movement of the camera. Camera shake is caused during slow shutter speeds.If there is any movement while the shutter is open, it will show up as motion lines and ghost images. This often happens in low light with longer shutter speeds needed to expose the images.Many people think that ruined photos are bl...

Here are some simple tips and rules that can help you to create better pictures. Use them as a guide to lead you in creating that extraordinary picture. But remember there are exceptions to every rule, so if you think something will look good, do not be afraid to try it! Enjoy!This seems like a little thing, but often times just taking a pause before pressing the button and really looking through the view finder can go a long way to improving your shots. Check that everything is in the viewfinder that you want or that there is not too much there. Check that the camera is straight and level.If you are shooting a person try and watch that objects behind the subject do not appear cluttered around the subjects head. An example might be a lamp directly behind someones head will tend to detract from the picture.Try shooting your subject from different angles not just straight on. Often times a unique point of view can really add dimension to a picture. Do not be afraid to climb up that hi...

Curious about digital photography?
2007-08-04 21:50:00
Having a digital camera, whether you have a plan to make a career out of photography or you are simply a hobbyist, is obviously important. But before buying a digital camera, there will be a lot of things to take note of. Camera accessories are one but an important feature is photo software. Many are available in the market while you can also download some in the internet. Also, digital cameras cost more out of the box than regular cameras, but offer the convenience of immediate viewing, multiple image storage, computer connectivity - and there's no film to develop. Compare additional features you might want: interchangeable lenses, steady-shot, burst mode, auto exposure, automatic white balance, voice memo, variable shutter speeds, manual focus and self-timer.During photography's entire history, the amateur and the professional have represented distinct and often contrary approaches to photography, each battling for supremacy.

Stock Photos Allow Both Amateur and Professional Photographers to Profit
2007-08-04 21:47:00
Today the two major types of photography sold on the market include assignment photography and stock photography. Photographs taken of a predetermined subject are called assignment photography, while stock photography is when one takes photos with the desire to find a future buyer.Both Amateur and Professional photographers generally can sell both types, and while assignment photography typically takes care of their base costs they find it to be self-limiting in profit potential. Stock photos, however, while generally commanding a lower price, sell more often and to a wider market. A good site to sell your stock photos is http://www.PhotoDaisy.comIf you think you might want to try your hand at making money with stock photography, it’s a good idea to know what kind of photography interests you and in what aspect of photography you have talent.

Taking Great Travel Pictures
2007-08-03 19:05:00
First, you need to research where you are going. Use whatever resources you have to find out what the best spots are and where you will probably want to snap some pictures. Theres nothing worse than going on vacation and finding out later that you missed out on a picture of a famous landmark or scene!If your travel adventures provide you with opportunities to take photos from a moving vehicle, be it a car, boat, plane, helicopter, or horse and buggy, remember that any sudden movement can turn a great picture into a useless blur. Before going on such an excursion, study your digital camera manual and learn how to increase your shutter speed so that your camera can take photos as quickly as possible.You may also want to adjust your ISO sensitivity higher to support faster shutter speeds. Note that both techniques may decrease lightness or introduce grain (noise) in your photograph, so you should always experiment to find a good balance.If you are taking a landscape photo, instead of t...

When you are taking portraits, there are a lot of aspects to take into consideration. While you will want to have some professionally done portraits done throughout your lifetime, you can still take some great family pictures with your digital camera.Are you taking photographs of babies or other children? Take advantage of the most important feature of your digital camera - the ability to shoot lots of photos without wasting film. However, please limit kids exposures to bright light if you insist on using flash.Kids, especially babies, are notorious for getting fidgety during a photo shoot. It may not be possible to set up a perfectly posed shoot with your subjects close to each other, all facing the camera, smiling bright with their eyes wide open. Children may look away from the camera, yawn, scratch their hair, etc.If its impossible to get the perfect posed shot, consider taking extra action photos of them partaking in various activities.

Digital Camera Printers
2007-08-03 19:01:00
If you take many shots through your digital camera, you can turn those virtual images into real photos by either sending the memory card to a digital photo lab and pay to have the pictures developed there or you can purchase a digital camera printer also known as a digital photo printer. The printer of your own is a particularly good idea if you take a lot of digital camera pictures.The three major manufacturers of digital camera printers are Epson, HP, and Canon. Before settling on one of these products, you should check these tips.Digital photo printers are available in four color printers, six color printers and even eight color printers. Obviously the higher color count will result in better photo quality in the printed product. Results that match those from the photo lab can be had by using good quality photo paper and an eight color printer.The second feature to check on the selection of photo printers is the printing method which is used. Usually this will be either inkjet or...
