Learning the Finder Points of Illumination
Any photographer worth her of his lens cap knows a thing or two about light. To be considered in those ranks, all you need to do is master a few basics First, remember that the broader the light source, the softer the light it emits will be.
The narrower the source, The harder it's like will be Broad light reduces shadow in contrast and suppresses distracting texture because it's raising the subject from many directions ( which is why it's beloved for flattering portraits).
A corollary: closer that the light source is to the subject, the softer dislike will be, because a light source is brought in relation to the subject. The converse holds true as well as you shift the light away from the subject, speed narrows in the light that a cast is harsher and harder. Such light plays of texture (as well as flaws) of and is an excellent choice for greedy, moody photos.
Playing with Illumination:
Ask a portrait subject to suit your large window to make the most of it in direct sunlight. A window with a good light is a no-cost softbox.
Move lamps closer and farther away from subjects into you found the most flattering illumination.
Place a light sourced the side of fluffy pets to bring up the softness and texture are their fur.
Aim of your flash head backward that bounces it off appeal wall behind yourself for a natural looking diffusion when you shoot in a small room.
Till next time.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
Review: Sun Room EN-EL15 ENEL15 Digital battery Charger for Nikon D810A D810 D800/D800E D750 D610 D500 D7200 D7100 D7000 Camera
So far love it. I rarely buy any third party hardware for my Nikon cameras, but must say liked the idea of charging two batteries at the same time and having the ability to charge them in the car. This charger does both! and the charge indicator is a nice touch. So far I am very impressed and would not be hesitant to suggest this product to anyone! My reason for the purchase was my Nikon Charger dropped, and though it shows no damage, stopped working. At 50 plus they are not cheap, so getting one that charges two for less money was a win/win.
Hello, in our fourth part of this series we're going to continue discussing your DSLR's options. I know many equate this much like a computer. They feel you much learn everything at once! As a person who taught himself computers, please don't think of it that way. You learn the basics and then add to your knowledge as you go along. Remember learning is a lifetime endeavor. So here we go.
Auto exposure modes.
Your DSLR's fully automated setting is called program. In this setting, the camera's computer picks the aperture and exposure duration for you. More experienced shooters might select intelligent Auto or Auto ISO modes to control their image sensors light sensitivity ( low ISO such as 100-400 work well in bright conditions; high ISOs are best in dim ones). Note There is the adage the higher the ISO, the more noise your image will contain. That said the cameras are coming out now have excellent capabilities in low light conditions. And my thoughts have always been a little noise and get the image, or just skip it or not try; I will always go after the picture! Other modes include Aperture Priority when you require a particular aperture for the light conditions. But if your freezing action? Choose Shutter Priority. (Use this all the time to shoot aircraft with props!). And last, but not least Full Manual mode allows you complete control over exposure.
Next time Scene mode, White Balance, and Auto bracketing. Till then
Ho folks, sorry to be late this week no excuse other than busy and picked up a new printer which I will share with next time.
Experiment with Camera Functions
Image quality and resolution controls:
When you out grabbing casual snaps, you may wish to choose lower quality, higher compression settings so as not to fill your memory card. Save high quality and resolution images for artful images.
Image shape controls:
Modern DSLR's let you preselect photo options to match your shooting style.
These modes allow you to focus according to your needs. Single focus works optimally on still subjects. Focus modes such as continuous, enable you to track a moving subject through the frame. Both your camera viewfinder and LCD monitor can show you where the camera autofocus points are. Which in turn allows you to center you focus area. In most cameras, you can concentrate in the frame, or activate multiple points together in some situations. Note, in some situations when shooting in low light, and up close to a subject it may be better to focus manually.
So next time, more modes! and talk about new printer.
Welcome, I first wish to hope everyone is having a great week!
I have allot to share this week. first growth in my own photographic ventures, second a shout out for a friends new phonebook. And lastly some quick observations on the Sony 6300 camera.
While I've always felt comfortable photographing wildlife, landscapes and classic aircraft. The one thing I have never felt comfortable with his photographing people. So one of my goals this last summer has been to take on that challenge. I tried this in a few different ways. One is the photographing friends of mine playing baseball at area Park. The other was what occurred this weekend. I had the opportunity to expand my photographic horizons, was more model type shoot. Teaming up with my good friend Gur on this endeavor we we had chatted about often in the last couple years. That of her in traditional dress which we would then photographed in various areas of the city.
Number One, a huge shout out to my friend all Gur, both for taking the time to do this with me and all that all she added to the shoot that day. And and also to her fiancé Chris for letting me borrow his wife to be for a couple hours. The day went amazing getting some wonderful shots of my friend which in turn helps me in developing my photographic skills. So my last thoughts in regards to this our relation to my title of my post. I know you all have subjects that we like to shoot. Never be afraid to try out something you you might surprise yourself! And also learn something in the process both, which of course is enriching. What will be the technical aspect of the shoot. Camera was made on the D750, with the Nikon AF-S 24 to 85 mm zoom. As it was just the two of us I did not use any fill flash or reflectors. You'll see some of the pictures below.
My second share today is for my photography friend Scott Engel who just published a new book on the iTunes store. Scott has published other book's, if you not had a chance to check out his work I highly suggest you take a few moments to do so. Link at: https://itun.es/us/eowOdb.l
Lastly, I'm nearing the end of my time at EAA Air Venture in Oshkosh Wisconsin. If your into planes or aviation in any way this is a one stop shop of all types of aircraft covering pretty much all the years of flight!
Till Next time
I'm a photographer who loves animal photography. Trying to capture that perfect moment is a passion of mine.
