Tips to avoid Camera Shake

Camera shake or handshake is a basic problem in many of the beginners’ photos.
Use faster shutter speeds….this is decided based on the lighting condition and the focal length of the lens used.

  • 1.Use the shutter speed higher than the reciprocal of the focal length. Ie. If we are shooting with a 50mm range, the shutter speed has to be atleast 1/60secs and 200mm range, then it should be 1/250secs
  • Use higher ISO settings.
  • Use large aperture (f/4, f/2.8) settings
  • Use IS or VR options ON on your lens or camera.
  • Use the camera on a sturdy tripod. When you are shooting in low light condition, and not able to stick on to the reciprocal principle.
  • For long exposure and bulb settings, use a remote shutter release to trigger the shutter button.
  • Use total flash exposure…flash can easily freeze the action

Enjoy photography….

5 Advantages of APS-C cropped sensor cameras

5 Advantages of APS-C cropped sensor cameras:

  1. Small size sensor makes the camera small, light-weight and affordable – good for travel and casual candid photography
  2. The lenses for crop sensor cameras are relatively less expensive
  3. The optical performance of any lens is better towards the center, and when you get an image cropped from the center, it has got a lesser optical problem
  4. The crop factor of the focal length of the lens makes you get the image closer than the full frame equivalent. A 50mm lens will give a coverage of 75mm when used on the APS-C cameras.
  5. Small sensor cameras can shoot closer – it possible to focus closer and get a macro like shots. 18-55mm kit lens can focus as close as three inches..!
    Never worry about your crops sensor camera…it has got its own advantage…enjoy photography

5 Reasons to study Photography

Photography is always an aspiring career option for anyone interested in the art of seeing and storytelling. It has become a stable profession now…as the need for a good photographer is in high demand.

There are a lot of photographers earning higher than the standard academic persons doing routine jobs.

Most important quality to pursue and be successful in photography is ‘passion for the art’ A passionate person can dedicate his/her time effectively in learning and become useful.

They must be willing to work 24X7 with a target to achieve

Though photography is a lot of fun, it should be learned and practiced seriously. Persons with an artistic bent of mind and who think out of the box have a better chance to become successful professionals.
In the present scenario, they must be willing to learn throughout their life and update the technology and trend.

There is nothing like ‘self taught’ in photography. We pick up lot of information from other photographers and their photos. Internet, You-tube, books, are other sources photographers learn and update. This helps the self taught photographers to do some trial and error basis learning. But as the need of today, a good photography school can help the students in the following five ways.

  1. The learners are given ample scope to understand all the possible technics and art through the structured curriculum
  2. A formal education gives lot of self confidence and helps to solve the problems thrown at them quickly and efficiently.
  3. A formal education makes learning fast and reduces the possibilities of mistakes that happens otherwise. For example, a phot ographer who has attended a formal course will be able to master the technics, art and business in a couple of years. Whereas, others may take years to achieve the same through a lot of trials and guess work.
  4. Most importantly, a good photography school can give hands-on experience on some of the expensive and rare state of the art equipment, facilities, special skills and real time job experience.
  5. A formal education gives an opportunity to develop contacts and network for business developments in the initial stage of the career.

These opportunities may or may not happen even after a long time for a self-learned photographer.

These opportunities may or may not happen even after a long time for a self-learned photographer.

  6. Use remote shutter release or use self-timer for still subjects and mirror-up option for long exposure shots

Processing…

Understand Picture Style / Picture Control

Camera’s processor process the JPEG images based on the settings we choose. Picture control or Picture Style is a pre-set option, used to process the images based on the type of subject. Saturation, Colour tone, Sharpness, Contrast, Clarity etc are the effects applied during the image processing in the camera.

MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS, THOUGH NOT ALL, ARE SELF-TAUGHT

Many photographers, though not all, are self-taught. What role does a school of photography play in guiding photography aspirants?people

In this present scenario of students passing out from their schools are finding it difficult to decide on the courses and career options. Many times, the wishes of the parents become the ‘forced wish’ of the student. Unfortunately, most parents do not bother to identify the special skills of their children but make them study something that is of no interest to them. End of the day, the children do something that they are not interested and they become just mediocre in their chosen field.travel

Particularly when our children are not interested in academics…it is the sign that they have some other special skills (sports, drawing & painting, dance, music, acting, photography, cinema, media, cooking, crafts, designing and lot more) and we need to promptly guide them so that they can excel in their special/personal skill-based profession. Photography is always being an aspiring career option for anyone interested in the art of seeing and storytelling. It has become a stable career now….as the need for good photographers is in high demand. There are a lot of photographers earning higher than the standard academic persons doing routine jobs.location
