Another important aspect of any Nikon digital camera is the shutter covers. The shutter of the digital camera helps to capture a photo by using the correct amount of effect and exposure to the light. A Nikon digital camera is equipped with the best shutter covers that effectively control the amount of light that passes through the aperture when you take a picture. You can know when a camera shutter cover is working once you hear the clicking sound after you have taken a picture. Before you click the digital camera’s capture button, the shutter covers the sensor and once you release the capture button, the shutter covers move slightly to allow enough light to pass through.

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 photography goes, following the above pointers will result in some great family pictures in contrast to your regular stuff.
