Preventing Lens Flares

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

Preventing Lens Flares

Sun spots, also known as lens flares, can make or break a picture. In most cases, photographers are happy to create an artificial flare using Photoshop, rather than risking it with sunlight. The thing is, directing the lens toward the sun can be damaging to your eyes and it could possibly blot your image. Of course, you can use Photoshop to minimize or even remove the flare… Continue reading

Capturing Flowers on Camera

Capturing Flowers on Camera

I want to start by saying you don’t have to be a professional photographer to capture great pictures of flowers. I mean, you could be taking pictures at a botanical garden or of a red rose from your own garden and your pictures can turn out just as good. But, of course, there are some basic guidelines you should keep in mind when taking pictures of… Continue reading

Mastering Depth of Field in Photoshop

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

Mastering Depth of Field in Photoshop

After you’re done taking pictures, do you ever think that your photos would maybe look better if some of them were foggy, while others were in focus? That type of thing creates what is called depth of field and it basically gives your photos a three-dimensional effect. It conveys distance, directs the viewer to the point the photographer wants to emphasize and it makes… Continue reading

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

Friday, March 14th, 2008

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

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

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

A Must See: New Camera Features

As we all know, the speed of technology these days is lightning fast.

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

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

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

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

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
