Basic photography tips for beginners

16 Jun

So, you’ve bought a camera. But there’s this teeny little problem about the whole thing: you don’t know the first thing about cameras or the principles it functions on! Not to worry though, this article is here precisely for that purpose. To guide you through the basics of photography without sounding like a lecture in Physics.photography tips

: first thing first

First things first, the camera is basically a device that captures the scene in front of you, using the same principle that applies to your eyes. Light enters your eyes, passes through the lens and forms a image on the retina. The photography tip is knowing your equipment

Photography tips : Aperture, Exposure, Shutter speed and Lens

Now, just hold that thought and think about the following points:

  • Photography tips : Aperture: This is nothing but the function of the camera that regulates the amount of light coming in the camera. Think of it as your iris which adjusts according to the light outside. Don’t you experience a blackout of sorts when you enter a dark room from a brightly lit area? That’s what happens when the aperture of the camera is inappropriately set. So, lower the light, higher the aperture.
  • Photography tips : Exposure: This is the amount of light that is allowed to fall on the film/sensor. Not much to explain here, but the correct manipulation of exposure can do aesthetic wonders for your photographs. Exposing your sensor for a long period, results in, more light falling on your sensor, making your picture brighter.
  • Photography tips : Shutter-Speed: Simple. The camera is your eye. The shutter is your eyelid. It’s that easy. How to adjust shutter speeds to get awesome effects? Keep it fast if you want stop-motion photos. For example, sweat jerking off a footballer’s forehead as he kicks the ball. Or, keep it slow if you want a blurry effect.
  • Photography tips : Lens: Every camera has a lens. Digital, SLR, mobile phone, you name it. They are the basic components of the camera and can be very helpful in defining your particular style of photograph. If you’re a sports photographer, use a telephoto; for landscape, use wide angle and so on.

These were just the basics of photography. Though reading it doesn’t make you an expert, it sure will help you in understanding what those buttons on your DSLR are used for! Buying a DSLR camera and using its features and power to take great Images is the soul of photography.

Family photography – tips to take great family photos with your new dSLR

21 May

Camera – the innovation that changed the way we stored moments in our memory forever. But, does that really help if all the memories you capture have the same bland expressions, or are in that one, clichéd pose?

Well, one way to get rid of those problems would certainly be to ask your subjects to reposition themselves which will add depth to the picture and make it more dynamic. Easier said than done. Every one of us has been a professional studio at least once or has seen a professional shoot. He doesn’t allow you to assume your natural pose while clicking you. Instead, he’ll irritate the hell out of you, telling you to ‘droop your shoulders a little…’ or ‘tilt your head towards the left…’ every now and then.

He does that for a purpose. Even a slight change in the angle at which the camera views the subject can drastically improve your picture. Here are some tricks you can use while clicking (with family members who’re patient enough to listen and obey your directions):

  • Get close – As closely you take a shot, the more detail it adds to the faces of the subjects.
  • Pose your group – There’s nothing to be afraid of while asking the members of a group to pose, they’ll actually thank you later.
  • Maintain Angles – Try keeping your subjects slightly, angled towards or away from the background, which will add depth as well as prevent many a woman from looking fat!
  • The Triangle Law – Place your subjects in such a way that their heads form a triangle, of sorts. This’ll do wonders for your regular tri-subject photograph.
  • Aperture – Set the aperture of your camera at a high value, which will result in your depth of field getting reduced and your subject remaining in focus.

As far as basic group goes, following the above pointers will result in some great family pictures in contrast to your regular stuff.

Taking care of your DSLR – Digital Camera Image Sensor Cleaning

19 May

If there’s one thing everyone hates, it’s dust. The smallest and the most irritating of all things on the planet, there ain’t  no stopping dust! No matter how many times you clean your laptop’s screen in the day, no matter how many hours you spend cleaning around your house, there the damn thing goes to dirty everything up again.

In a situation like this, it isn’t any big surprise that the sensor of your DSLR would end up with a bit of dust on it every few days. Especially if you’re into changing a lot of lenses while shooting. So, what’s the procedure for getting a clean sensor?

There are many ways

1.       The Expensive Way

Go to an authorised dealer, tell them to clean your lens and give them a month’s salary.

2.       The Cheap Way

Do it yourself.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? But there are a lot of things that could go wrong if you don’t do it right. One of them including running the risk of damaging the outer plate accidentally and end up paying a price much higher than that required to get it cleaned by Nikon.

But, there is a very small chance of that happening as the plate is nothing but thick glass and it would take a thicker skull to damage it.

Some of the self-cleaning methods include using a cleaning fluid with a brush to wipe away the dust, the most popular being a $32 kit from Copper Hill Images. Other self-help gurus will advise you to use statically charged or cosmetic brushes for the same job.

Though effective, using brushes won’t really help in removing the icky glob that forms when the dust on your sensors combines with chamber lubricant from parts of your camera.

Well, that should be enough to remove any fears you’ve had of touching your sensors, in fact you’re not even touching your sensors. It’s a glass plate above it that you’re actually cleaning.

That’s it then. Happy Cleaning!!

Note: If you’re really freaked out about cleaning your sensors, try using cameras from Olympus. They’ll last real long without you having to worry about at all.
