Digital Photography Times Two

Digital Photography Times Two

It’s your lucky day! I have two brand new digital photography tips for you today and I think you’re really going to enjoy them. The two topics really have nothing to do with each other, but I figured they were both something you all might be interested in. Let’s take a look!

Twilight Photography

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

Twilight Photography

A lot of emphasis is put on sunset photography. But, if you stop and think about it, it’s difficult to get a different, yet engaging shot from a sunset. Therefore, how about thinking lateral? You know, taking pictures long after the sun has gone down. And that’s exactly where twilight photography comes into play. The best thing to do is wait 15 to 20 minutes after the sun… Continue reading

Show Some Personality

Show Some Personality

To begin, I just want to say that portrait photography goes beyond photography! It’s all about judging a perfect stranger and coming to terms with what he or she best symbolizes. It could be haughtiness, confidence, innocence, etc. But the real question is: how do you capture those traits in a photograph? Well, keep reading and you might just find out!

Bring Out Their Personality

Easy Photoshop Tricks

Friday, March 14th, 2008

Sometimes photography is as much about camera skills as it is about tweaking the pictures you’ve taken in Photoshop. However, the long drawn out ways of doing a simple task in Photoshop can be quite tiring. Luckily, there’s a way out! All you need to do is follow the relatively simple tips found below to master Photoshop by keeping both your hands busy and minimizing the time spent on your… Continue reading

Making the Most of Bad Weather

Friday, March 7th, 2008

Making the Most of Bad Weather

When it rains, when lightning strikes and when it snows, you would rather stay indoors than go outside. Yes, we all love to be in our comfy little homes when the weather is bad, but that’s a big mistake if you’re trying to get some unique picture shots. In hindsight, you have a better chance of making your pictures speak “more than a thousand… Continue reading

Buying a Tripod: What to Look For

Friday, February 29th, 2008

Buying a Tripod: What to Look For

For shake-free photography, a tripod is a must! Of course, you can rest your camera on any solid surface and the effect will be just as good, but if you use a tripod, you can tilt your camera any which way you want and still take pictures without a blur. A tripod is especially important if you’re taking pictures of yourself or a… Continue reading

Adding Variety to Your Photos

Adding Variety to Your Photos

It’s plain and simple: photography demands diversity! If you’re one who feels the best way to take good photos is to take many of them, you may only be partially right. I mean, what about variety? What about making your photos stand out from the crowd? Well, that’s where the following techniques could help make your pictures sing and dance. Let’s take a look!

A Must See: New Camera Features

A Must See: New Camera Features

As we all know, the speed of technology these days is lightning fast. It seems as if what you buy today becomes obsolete the next, which is why it’s important to update yourself on the newest features available for digital cameras before you think of upgrading or buying a new one. Here are some of the new features you should look out for before… Continue reading

Flash Action Photography

Friday, December 21st, 2007

Flash Action Photography

Agreed, pictures taken with flash aren’t as great as those taken under natural light, but sunlight also brings harsh shadows with it. To precisely light up those dark shadows, flash is a must. That is particularly true of outdoor action photography, be it car racing, roller skating or jet skiing. With the help of your flash, you can compensate for those fast moving environments with some well… Continue reading

Recovering Data From Your Memory Card

Friday, December 14th, 2007

Recovering Data From Your Memory Card

It seems like everyone has a digital camera these days. More and more people are using them to record the wonderful moments of their lives. But, it also seems as if digital pictures are easier to lose over traditional film, because digital cameras have a useful, yet dangerous Delete button feature. A simple mistake could instantly delete one or all of your… Continue reading

Shooting Modes

Friday, December 7th, 2007

Shooting Modes

If you haven’t noticed, we’re in an age of all things being “ready made” and the same applies to digital photography. Pick any point and shoot camera or even a professional SLR camera and you will find pre-defined shooting modes that help you automatically adjust the camera’s focal length and exposure limits, depending on the picture you want to take. That could either be close ups, landscapes, night… Continue reading

Live Long Your Memory Cards

Live Long Your Memory Cards

Memory cards are the lifeline of digital cameras, so it’s imperative to prolong their life as much as you can. Below are some things you can do to accomplish just that. Read on!

Avoid Deleting Images One at a Time

The more you reduce the number of erase cycles, the longer your memory card will live to store your pictures. In other words, it’s better… Continue reading

Capturing the Sun

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

Sunsets and sunrises. They’re two plain words, but in photography, they assume huge significance when you realize it’s not such an easy thing to capture them on your memory chip. They usually turn out to be too over exposed or too under exposed. Or, even worse, the timing can be all wrong. Well, here are a few tips you can follow that can help you take

Mastering Flash Photography

Friday, November 16th, 2007

Mastering Flash Photography

Flash photography isn’t easy to master. And on top of that, if you have a hopeless flash, it makes matters even worse. But don’t worry! If you follow the easy tips I have for you today, you can overcome low light conditions and ensure that your pictures will be worthy enough to be included in your photo album. Okay, so let’s go over some strategies and techniques… Continue reading

Get Stylish Frames with Framy

Get Stylish Frames with Framy

When much of your work involves staring at a computer, it’s important to have fun while you’re at it. So, that is why jazzing up your desktop becomes all the more necessary! And the people at Framy (you can find their Web site here) do just that. They freely allow you to take frames off their Web site so that you can… Continue reading

Choosing Your SLR Camera

Friday, November 2nd, 2007

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

Choosing Your Subject

Thursday, October 18th, 2007

Many times, we mistakenly believe that we need to have a studio setting and a studio subject to take great pictures. The truth is, your subjects can be anyone, animate or inanimate. That’s what makes photography so much fun. Here are a few easy tips on finding the right subjects for your pictures!

Honest Emotions

This quality is always appealing… Continue reading

Improving Your Cameraphone Photos

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. The biggest problem is that though the newer ones have higher megapixels, better lenses and high capacity storage, the results aren’t as appealing. Some of it could be due to lower quality cameras, but it is also often a result of poor… Continue reading

Better Black and White Photos

Friday, October 5th, 2007

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

Memory Cards: Fake vs. Real

Memory Cards: Fake vs. Real

As fake memory cards have now proliferated throughout the marketplace, it is very important to know how to spot a fake card when it comes down to it. So, today we’re going to go over some methods you can use to spot fake memory cards and I will also show you some examples of what they look like. Let’s get started!

Why You Should Care

It’s All in the Hold

Friday, September 21st, 2007

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

Friday, September 14th, 2007

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

Friday, August 31st, 2007

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

Photoshop Photo Gallery

Friday, August 24th, 2007

Photoshop Photo Gallery

Maybe you have your own Web site or maybe you’re an artist and you want a really cool photo gallery for your site or homepage.

Either way, even if you don’t know one letter of HTML, you can make a photo gallery for the Web or one to e-mail to your friends using one of Photoshop’s lesser known features.

This feature is so powerful, it’s almost as… Continue reading

Group Photos

Friday, August 17th, 2007

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

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007

Choosing Your Lenses

Agreed, a picture speaks louder than a thousand words, but most times, it’s dependent on the lenses that go with your camera. Again, there are different lenses to suit different photographic needs. Whether it’s landscapes, portraits, close ups, wildlife, sports or even architecture, there’s a lens for everything. And even before you rush out and buy a lens based on these suggestions, it’s best that you try… Continue reading
