Photography is undeniably one of the most evolving art components of all time. This art has seen progress from the first precursor technologies, which typically delved in achieving technical discoveries, to what it is now, with advanced cameras and photography techniques. It is exciting to see the introduction of various features, which solely focus on a whole new level of photography and accompanying skills. The best thing about the current technology is the ability for amateurs and beginners to pick up on skills using the knowledge laid out by the more experienced photographers.
Here are some of the camera tips and tricks, which can help you enjoy this form of art:
Day to Night use of a flash
The thing about making portraits during the day is that it more than often becomes dull, with the same kind of shot in every picture. The reason being regardless of the weather is bright and shiny, the light just holds a natural state that does not change. The one trick to use in this case is to turn the power on the flash to a maximum. How does this improve the lighting? You will ask, but the basis of this is simple, setting the flash to a maximum will make your current subject appear very bright, and changing the camera settings to expose for the party, will further improve the whole appearance of the background to very dark, basically, because the light did not hit it.
Remove the lens for macro
This is a relatively unusual and brilliant trick, and what it requires you to do is to take off the lens, and place it in front of the camera. This will help you achieve a macro lens. Cool right? There are however a certain number of things you need to know about this particular camera trick, and it is that; your camera will not take a picture, not until you’re in the manual mode. You will also lose autofocus because your lens is not typically attached to the camera, and the best focal length is around 50mm, which means that an 18-50mm kit lens will work correctly for you.
Delete unwanted components from your photo
This is an excellent tip for the people who travel a lot. This happens when you mainly have a good shot, but you have disruptions in the picture. Then your view is not as perfect as you wanted it to be. This technique involves:
• Stepping up your camera on a tripod
• Take photographs at an approximate estimate of 10 seconds, possibly until you have gathered enough shots, 15 is okay. This hugely depends on how fast people walk around.
• Open all the shot pictures in Photoshop; this means opening file then scripts and finally statistics. Ensure you choose the median option, then select all the data you took.
The end of this process involves Photoshop finding all the significant differences in the images and removing it. Photoshop works by removing all of the different features around the picture.
Use the Reflector as a studio backdrop
It is very common when doing outdoor shoots for the photographer to be filled with the idea of changing a particular aspect to give the impression of both a white background and studio shoot. Sometimes all you need is the perfect white background, which is an excellent way of focusing all the attention on a particular aspect, it further gives the image a distinct cut look. In this situation, it is very imperative to use a simple reflector and purpose it for a studio backdrop.
The only trick in this technique is to ensure you use a practical uncovering compensation. The photographic device will always try to reduce down the white backing to a distinct gray, and this is in view of the anticipation that the white is exposed. About one stop of the exposure rectification does the trick, and this is through making the reflector grounding seem a little bright white. In the instances that you are learning photography in the manual mode or through the different ways that exposure compensation work. It is then important to take an online beginner photography class, where there is a complete outline of what you should do and should not do.
