Taking Better Photography

Taking Better Photography

Taking a good photograph isn’t as hard as you may think. You don’t need the most expensive camera or years of experience. Though, the most important advice that years of experience will tell you is that you need to take an exaggerated amount of photographs in one shoot at multiple angles, and an expensive camera enables you to take higher resolution photographs that can be blown up to about five feet and still retain crisp lines. Cameras are all about point of view, that’s it. Everybody has a standard way to look at things, the photographers ambition is to always look at things from a different point of view, and then capture that image. One way to get successful images is to keep looking from a different point of view. Traditional is boring, but it is relevant, if your aim is wedding photography, you don’t really want to push or break the lines of tradition, here it is a different point of view, a traditional point of view will produce things like the idea of the sacred. A more expensive camera will also produce richer gradients, blacks are blacker color is brighter and angles are more extreme with interchangeable lenses but all this can wait. I’m not trying to get you to go out and buy a fifteen hundred dollar camera, quite the opposite actually, it’s better to start off with whatever camera you have laying around, because it will limit your vision, constraining it into an appropriate box from which you can break out of over time. We’ve all heard it… and here it is again, just go...

Concerning Digital Prints

So, you have captured that wonderful moment, a beautiful image in your digital camera! Now, you are preparing to take a print to make a gift to your dear and near one or for your personal collection! Now here is the crux! In the majority of such cases, as our experience tells us, people are not sure what the maximum size can be for a digital print, without that image distorting! Many people think that they can make the image as big as they want, then print without knowing about the “image stitching technique”! And when there is distortion, they blame the printer for low visual quality. One must remember that what looks the worst from a close distance may look the best if the distance between the image and the viewer is increased (10 to 15 feet or more) in case of larger digital prints. While taking digital prints, the photographer should consider critically how the image will be displayed for a better, if not the best viewing experience. There are some digital printers too, who do not know the limit or only who only concentrate on money rather than the quality of the output offered. Sometimes they forget that what is merely a digital photo to them, may be a precious moment to the photographer, which may never be repeated! The maximum size that a printout of a digital photo can be, depends on various aspects. But the common aspect can be the following if you are thinking of having your photo printed for yourself: If you are using a commercial 1.2 mega pixel camera, the best digital...

Maybe you will be captivated by this compelling and diverse art as well. 1. The Challenge of Getting the Perfect Picture If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

An individual must have patience, but at the end of the day a great sense of accomplishment is felt from capturing the best part. 2. Tell A Story From beginning to end of a snowball fight, with people throwing their first snowball and eventually rolling in the snow and then dusting off, you can see the event and it tells the story of friendship, fun and joy of life. Looking at pictures of an old family farm from its humble beginnings to the growth and increase over a hundred years it tells a story of family, hard work and sacrifice. Everyone has a story, photos can share that story and bring it to life. 3. Express Individuality A photographer subject matter will reflect their interests, likes and preferences. A photo can also reflect the individuality of a subject. The clothes they choose to wear and the location they want the pictures shot all show who they are and their personality. 4.
