Choosing Your SLR Camera

Choosing Your SLR Camera

There’s just something about Single Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras. They are much better than the point-and-shoot compact varieties, particularly when it concerns indoor shooting or where there isn’t much light. It’s no wonder they happen to be the fastest growing segment of the digital camera market today. So, to begin with, what are SLR cameras? Well, they are high-end models with interchangeable lenses, as opposed to… Continue reading

Improving Your Cameraphone Photos

With cameraphones becoming one of the fastest growing segments in the digital camera market, it is important to make the most of them.

Better Black and White Photos

In the days of color photography, there are many who still swear by black and white photography, because the world changes when it is in black and white. If you really want to define a subject’s form, switching to black and white to take a photo will emphasize all the details you miss in color. Much of that is largely because, with black and white… Continue reading

Why You Should Care

It’s All in the Hold

It’s All in the Hold

Many of our best photographs suffer from camera shakes. While some cameras come with anti-shake warnings that tell you if the picture you’ve taken is blurred or not, a better way to find out is to zoom in at 100 percent and see it for yourself. Now, if the picture is blurred and you think it requires rocket science to bring clarity into it… Continue reading

Points to Consider

Points to Consider

Photography should be approached a bit like journalism. Before you embark on your pictorial expedition, you need to first ask yourself the four Ws and one H. You know, who, when, where, why and how. Once you know what you’re looking for, photography becomes much more organized, focused and fulfilling. So, if you’re the kind of person who likes to take your time with your photos, here… Continue reading

Working with the Contrast

Working with the Contrast

Image sharpness can mean the essential difference between good and bad photography. Plus, if you are contributing for stock photo sites, this becomes the key decider between acceptance and non-acceptance. So, what is sharpness? Well, it’s basically the crispness of the photograph and the clarity of the different elements in the photograph (the detailing). Sharpening a photo can be done in the post-production process, but it’s… Continue reading

Group Photos

Group Photos

Taking photos of a group of people isn’t as easy as it sounds. Just when you thought you captured a Kodak moment on your camera, you realize one or more of your subjects seem to be looking away. Or worse, some are found blinking or maybe someone is missing from the photograph. Then there is the problem of different subjects in different moods (smiling, serious, playful, etc). But… Continue reading

Choosing Your Lenses

Macro Photography

Macro Photography

Just in case you’re not sure, macro photography refers to images in which the subject is presented at a larger than normal size, like a ratio greater than 1 to 1.

Candid Photography

You must have seen “Candid Camera” on TV, right? Well, candid photography is something like that. The only difference is that while those were staged to make you giggle, these are more natural.
