  • Single use cameras
  • Twin lens reflex cameras
  • Bridge cameras

There are many image editing techniques available with the help of which one can edit the pictures in the perfect manner and some of the tips are

  1. Blacken the Deeps: By making the deeps black and dark, it increases the richness of the picture. In other words, it adds the texture and increases the richness of the picture and makes it attractive.
  2. Tweaking the Shadows: By adjusting the shadow levels of the picture, it also helps in increasing the richness of the picture and also adds a subtle contrast to the picture.
  3. Adding Vignettes: The Vignette effects are very easy to apply to a digital picture that adds to the quality of the picture and makes it good looking. Adding a Vignette to a picture makes the corners dark or light.
  4. Using of Filters: Adding a gradual filter to the picture helps in lowering the extreme effects in the picture and also adds a nice density to the picture.
  5. Adjusting the Skin Tones: A picture looks good when the skin tone and the clarity of the picture isadjusted. This helps making the picture attractive.
  6. Adjusting of the Luminance to the Picture: A picture does not looks good without adding the charm to the picture. Providing a natural look to the picture makes a photo perfect.

The amazing sea life photography of Alexander Semenov

Today we have with as a stunning selection of underwater sea life photography by Alexander Semenov!

It never cease to amaze me how many wonderful things in nature remain hidden from our eyes. And how many beautiful things yet remain to be discovered! And you will be surprised on how many of those are hidden in the depths of the oceans!

The amazing sea life photography of Alexander Semenov

The amazing sea life photography of Alexander Semenov

But before we get started with viewing today’s selections let’s meet Alexander.

” In 2007, I graduated from Lomonosov’s Moscow State University in the department of Zoology. I specialized in the study of invertebrate animals, with an emphasis on squid brains. Soon after, I began working at the White Sea Biological Station (WSBS) as a senior laborer. WSBS has a dive station, which is great for all sorts of underwater scientific needs, and after 4 years working there, I became chief of our diving team. I now organize all WSBS underwater projects and dive by myself with a great pleasure and always with a camera.

When I first began to experiment with sea life photography I tried shooting small invertebrates for fun with my own old dslr camera and without any professional lights or lenses. I collected the invertebrates under water and then I’ve shot them in the lab. After two or three months of failure after failure I ended up with a few good pictures, which I’ve showed to the crew. It has inspired us to buy a semi-professional camera complete with underwater housing and strobes. Thus I’ve spent the following field season trying to shoot the same creatures, but this time in their environment. It was much more difficult, and I spent another two months without any significant results. But when you’re working at something every day, you inevitably get a lot of experience. Eventually I began to get interesting photos — one or two from each dive. Now after four years of practice I get a few good shots almost every time I dive but I still have a lot of things that need to be mastered in underwater photography.

And the most important thing — I love Sea.”

-Alexander Semenov

With no further ado let’s enjoy his awesome photographs!

Simple Fashion Photography Tips That You Need To Remember

Fashion photography is something that seems to be simple. You just have a model and you shoot, right? Well, things get a lot more complicated than that. The focus needs to be put on the clothes that are promoted while taking advantage of the beauty of the model. This is far easier said than done. In order to aid you to make wonderful photos, here are some of the tips that have to be remembered:

Fashion Photography And Authority

Fashion photography has to offer authority. This basically means that the model’s direction has to be self-assured and confident. If the model is not comfortable and involved, there will be signs of stress, a lack of direction and anxiety. That will damage the overall effect. Always prepare the location properly together with the clothes and the props.

Put The Focus On Beauty And Clothes

Let us say that you need to organize a photo shoot for some Newlook jumpers. What counts the most? The focus on the model or on the jumpers? Whenever talking about fashion photography, we need to think about beauty and clothes. The make-up and the lighting utilized have to complement first the clothes and then the model. Sometimes it is better to use models that do not look like regular ones you see in magazines. That brings in authenticity.

Dealing With Posing

This is definitely a little tricky as posing is difficult to master. Take a look at the latest trends that you see in magazines. With fashion photography it is a great idea to use angular body shapes or broken down poses. This adds edginess and interest to a photo that might be blank when taking the common posing approach.

Shoot In Studios

It is always better to shoot in a studio because the photographer can basically control all conditions and lighting. The studio environment will force you to meter all scene areas and you have to utilize separate lighting meters than what your camera usually uses but a much more accurate reading is obtained. In the event that you cannot hire a studio, you can use a room in an apartment. However, in this case you want to be sure that you have large windows, you need white sheets and the day when you shoot should be sunny.

Use Props

Many of the modern fashion photography shoots use props and there is a reason for that. The props will tell a narrative in your shoot. Out of all possible items that can be used, the mirror is the one that is the most popular.

Influence Images

Move around and never take photographs from just one angle. You never know what angle is better in order to properly expose garments photographer. You might end up using ladders or getting really close to the model. The artist needs to think about the message so that it can be reinforced through composition.

On the whole, fashion photography is all about experimenting. The more you prepare and you experiment, the bigger the possibility that the shoot will be a success!

Taking Beautiful Photos Using Your Point-and-Shoot Camera

No matter how impressive, expensive or feature-packed a camera is, the one thing that manufacturers can’t include in the state-of-the-art design of any camera is the ability to use it well. Taking great photos is about timing, a discerning eye and a love of the visual. As a photographer you can take beautiful photos with nothing more advanced than a point-and-shoot or even a smartphone camera. These few short tips will help you find out how.

Read the Manual, then Experiment

Many people use a point and shoot straight out of the box, sticking to a preferred general setting. Most of these cameras come with menu settings that would have blown away a professional camera fifteen years ago. Start by taking your time to familiarize yourself with the features, and when you know that the option for taking photos of close-up text is just a few clicks away, try experimenting. What happens when you take a portrait with this setting? What effects do you get from taking a photograph in a dimly lit restaurant with the sunset setting? Play, experiment, enjoy.

Stop Taking Portraits

One of the key distinctions between a professional photograph and an amateur one is that professionals keep the focus away from the centre of the image. When you’re filming something – and a good point-and-shoot takes photos and records videos – that is the only time to put your subject on center. Instead, include your subject within the environment. Place them to either side, with interesting parts of the fore- and background having as much importance. You can produce very good pictures by playing with contrast, highlights and angles.

Tell a Story

Photography is about capturing a moment, not capturing a person or a thing. This is the most fundamental mistake people make when taking photos. Use the whole space within your viewfinder to capture a moment that tells a story. Once you’ve experimented with your settings, stopped taking portraits and developed an appreciation of details and even the mundane, you can start to take professional quality photographs by experimenting with things like silhouettes, patterns and ‘artsy’ photographs that capture something suggestive instead of explicit.

Turn of the Flash

One of the greatest discoveries you will make in experimenting with settings is that there are ways to avoid using the flash. When you have to use one, dampen it, as the flash on a point-and-shoot will simply bleach your photos of color and depth.

Tips and Techniques for effective water splash photography

Hello and welcome! In today’s article we’ll see 5 techniques for capturing water splashes with our dslr camera. Hope you will find the videos informative and help you understand better the techniques behind water high speed photography.

High-speed photography is the science of taking pictures of very fast phenomena. In 1948, the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) defined high-speed photography as any set of photographs captured by a camera capable of 128 frames per second or greater, and of at least three consecutive frames. High-speed photography can be considered to be the opposite of time-lapse photography.

In common usage, high-speed photography may refer to either or both of the following meanings. The first is that the photograph itself may be taken in a way as to appear to freeze the motion, especially to reduce motion blur. The second is that a series of photographs may be taken at a high sampling frequency or frame rate. The first requires a sensor with good sensitivity and either a very good shuttering system or a very fast strobe light. The second requires some means of capturing successive frames, either with a mechanical device or by moving data off electronic sensors very quickly.

Other considerations for high-speed photographers are record length, reciprocity breakdown, and spatial resolution.

Lets get started!

Stunning Sunsets and Silhouette photography

Silhouette is one of the words, that i am thankful when i have to write on the computer. Since i can employ my trusted spelling checker, to always correct the misspelled word! It is also one of the most stunning photography types.

silhouette is the image of a person, an object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single color, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subject. The interior of a silhouette is basically featureless, and the whole is typically presented on a light background, usually white, or none at all. The silhouette differs from an outline which depicts the edge of an object in a linear form, while a silhouette appears as a solid shape. Silhouette images may be created in any visual artistic media.

For today we’ll focus on silhouette photography during sunset and also include some stunning sunsets by themselves. The images are coming from us from several talented photographers from Flickr. So let’s enjoy their awesome works!

levels corrected

Image correction basics: Understanding Histograms and Photoshop Levels

Understanding to read an image histogram is a crucial skill in digital photography. It will not only help you capture better exposed images, but also correct badly exposed ones in Photoshop, Lightroom and other similar software. If you feel its complicated don’t just dive in and soon you will have a deeper understanding of what histograms are all about and how you can use them.

Before you start watching the videos let’s first get a clear idea of what histograms represent. Wikipedia has a very clear definition for that:

“An image histogram is a type of histogram that acts as a graphical representation of the tonal distribution in a digital image. It plots the number of pixels for each tonal value. By looking at the histogram for a specific image a viewer will be able to judge the entire tonal distribution at a glance.
Image histograms are present on many modern digital cameras. Photographers can use them as an aid to show the distribution of tones captured, and whether image detail has been lost to blown-out highlights or blacked-out shadows.

The horizontal axis of the graph represents the tonal variations, while the vertical axis represents the number of pixels in that particular tone.[1] The left side of the horizontal axis represents the black and dark areas, the middle represents medium grey and the right hand side represents light and pure white areas. The vertical axis represents the size of the area that is captured in each one of these zones. Thus, the histogram for a very dark image will have the majority of its data points on the left side and center of the graph. Conversely, the histogram for a very bright image with few dark areas and/or shadows will have most of its data points on the right side and center of the graph.”

 

Let’s get started!

Exposure – Let’s Get it Right!

Photography is fun, but getting the correct exposure sometimes can be challenging. Without correct exposure, the photos may be either too dark or too bright, and may fail to present the desirable depth of field to viewers. Setting the correct exposure for your camera should not be a daunting task. There are several useful tips mentioned in our video clip that will assist you in finding the desirable exposure settings on filmmaking or still photography.

Blend of Creativity and Technology

They say a photograph speaks a thousand words. This is why a photographer is known as an artist even though this work requires lots of technical knowledge and understanding of the physics of light. The need of knowing the scientific aspects of light and its behavior increases ten folds with the evolution of digital photography. Earlier there was a time when a photographer could not control the settings of a camera so much so that they could manipulate the results, but today, things are different. Now we have digital cameras which can twist and tweak the results as per the wish of photographer to a very large extent. Different types of tools & attachments along with advanced photography techniques comes to rescue the photographers and allow them to bring out the kind of results they want.

One such attachment to the camera is “filter”. There are numerous lens filters that are used in digital photography these days. These filters have multiple uses. Some give an additional layer of safety to the camera lens, and the other can dramatically alter the final result. It depends upon your personal requirements which influences the use of these filters.

Lets have a look at some of the most popular filters

Polarizing filters (linear & circular)

The polarizing filter is widely used for a better saturation of colors. The most obvious use of one such filter is to make the sky more blue to give a nice contrast with foreground subjects. This is done by reducing the amount of reflected light that passes through the lens. The light reduction may trigger some more adjustment with ISO and Aperture settings but the photographer should not mind it as long as the desired result is produced. Another quality of these filters is that they reduce the glare or reflection off of water and other surfaces, this feature comes very handy in multiple ways and enhances the image quality.

The maximum effect of a polarizing filter is gained when it is pointed in the perpendicular direction of the sun or the main light source. It means when the sun is exactly over the photographers head the sky would be maximum blue as far as the capacity of the filter is concerned. The preview of the result can be seen by rotating the filter over the lens.

These polarizing filters should be used wisely because they drastically reduce the amount of light reaching the sensor of the camera. This may produce unanticipated results and therefore it requires a practice to get familiarize with these filters. The use of polarizing filters over wide angle lenses can yield some unrealistic results and therefore the concept should be clear in the mind of the photographer before they start using it.

As far as the difference between linear and circular polarizing filters is concerned it is mostly to do with the camera’s metering and auto focus features. Circular polarizers are compatible with these functions whereas linear are not.

Natural – density filters or ND filter

The basic function of a natural density filter is to reduce the light entering the lens in a uniform manner. This simple thing actually can change the final result in many ways depending upon the creativity of the person behind the camera. Situations where a ND filter is mostly used are : –

  1. For smoothing the movement of water in a river, seascape, or waterfall and situations like this.
  2. For a shallow depth of field in very bright light.
  3. To make moving objects almost invisible or less apparent in the frame.
  4. Highlighting or introducing the blur to showcase the motion of the subject.

However the use of a ND filter is certainly not limited by these conditions but yes, it is limited by the limitations of creative thinking of the photographer. The attachment in itself is just an additional edge for you to think differently and create something unique. This filter actually reduces a large amount of light and therefore it requires expertise with the camera and a clear vision of what exactly you want to take out from that subject in your final photograph.

Graduated ND filter

A graduated Natural Density filter is a ND filter which reduces light in a graduated manner. This way one part of the frame receives more light than the other to manipulate the result. In the film era it was a great tool to produce dramatic results on the film camera.

Haze & Ultra violet filter

Ultraviolet rays are there in the environment but are not visible to human eyes. These rays actually bring an amount of haze in the final result especially in the film cameras. However in this era of digital photography the modern DSLR cameras are equipped to deal with it. But this filter is still used to protect the lens in the field. This filter is favored by many photographers because it does not affect the final result very much and yet proves to be useful as it is less expensive to replace a filter than a lens.

By means of these filters the art of photography has certainly raised its  level and we now see results that were not imaginable to the photographers of previous eras. These tools and attachments have directly influenced the related domain and proved their worth.

However photography is not limited to these tools and advanced cameras only. It is the photographer that decides how they want to use the capabilities of their camera. Images are first created in the mind of the person who is going to click the shutter. But it cannot be denied that these advanced attachments open the gates of mind for new possibilities and provides a creative space for the photographer where they can play with thoughts and visual assumptions to experiment with the use of filters, lenses, flashes and other tools of photography to produce magnificent results which leaves the viewer amazed. This is the power of creativity when it blends with technology.

Wedding Photography Props – The Do’s and Dont’s

Every bride wants to capture every beautiful and memorable moment on her wedding day, and aside from the formal shots, it is becoming more popular and requested that wedding photography include some informal and cheeky shots. Incorporating props that go along with your wedding theme and style can make for some great candid shots and showcase a favorite hobby. If you both love to fish, for example, an inflatable fish at the end of a rod adds a touch of whimsy.

The same holds true for your wedding. You want to capture all the fun that everyone is having -especially since you can’t be a part of it all- but your photographer can’t be everywhere at once.

One of the most popular additions to traditional wedding photographers is the photo booth. It’s fun, it’s interactive, and it gives all of the special people in your life an opportunity to document their presence in your big day. A photo booth captures the joy of innocent children and is also good for recording guests like work friends. Even the bride and groom should make a point to steal a moment or two alone in the booth and capture some fun, romantic, and intimate photos.

Be sure to place the photo booth somewhere that everyone will be congregating, like by the food or drinks tables. To capture the spirit of unadulterated joy and fun at your events, provide props. Props are fun for all ages, and can liven up even the dullest photographs. Still shots, while nice and necessary, won’t have you laughing hysterically decades from now when you look back at grandma playing an inflatable saxophone with giant sunglasses. Props can bring out anybody’s goofy side, and the funny photos you’ll get will be priceless.

Here are some more creative prop ideas to enhance the photographic memories of your special day.

Inflatables:
From dinosaurs to monkeys and giraffes or giant pink flamingos, blow-up animals provide a fun backdrop. Musical instruments, like guitars and drums and saxophones, are also available. These work best with the larger photo booth rentals. They might seem silly, but watch everyone come and have a look at these inflatables and not be able to resist the urge to have a couple of funny photos.

Parasols and Umbrellas:

Depending on the size of the photo booth, parasols and umbrellas can be a great prop, lending a sense of nostalgia to the scene. Try to choose ones that match the wedding party colors.

Feather Boas:
Dressing up in feather boas and brightly colored scarves can be a whole lot of fun, especially for the ladies and little girls.

Nerdy – Dork Glasses:
Nerdy glasses can be found pretty much anywhere. Look at thrift stores, rummage sales, or dollar stores. Buy the largest, geekiest, weirdest glass you can find.

Antique Frames:
Look for old frames from thrift stores and rummages sales. Spray paint them in funky colors, like bright pink neon, glitter, or shiny metallics. This gives your guests the opportunity to frame themselves.

Hats:
Hats can be expensive, but when you keep an eye out for them on clearance, or scour the area thrift stores, you can find a reasonably inexpensive way of letting your guests add some style and flair to their photo ops. Concentrate a tad more on mens’ hats, like top hats or fedoras. The ladies aren’t as likely to want to risk their hairdos. The bride can also consider asking some of the men in the family to donate any unused hats to the cause.

Fake Flowers:
Bouquet of fake flowers fashioned from your bridal colors can be fun to replicate the bride’s flowers. Craft stores and dollar stores usually have flowers and ribbons that can quickly be fashioned into mini bouquets for little girls to play make-believe for their photos.

Moustache on a Stick:
Handlebar moustaches, frames that say “Wanted-Reward,” one-dimensional hats, and thought bubbles are just a few of the items available at party stores. You name it, they’ve got it. If you need to stick to a tight budget, these are totally ripe for a do-it-yourself project.

Wigs:
Who doesn’t love wigs? While they may not be the most popular prop at the start of the gala, as the day wears on and the libations flow, wigs can become surprisingly popular, even with the men! Scouring second hand stores always reveals a few long-lost wigs laying around.

Bubbles:
Everybody, young and old, loves bubbles! They look great floating around in photos and they are so inexpensive, they are a must-have prop.

Poster-board:
Place a giant blank poster-board somewhere in the venue, this provides an opportunity for the guests to leave their well wishes right there on the day and as emotions rise.

Additional Tips:

  1. Find a trunk or lightweight storage container to store all of your different props in. Decorate it in theme colors of the wedding.
  2. Carouse the dollar stores, resale boutiques and thrift stores for hats, gloves, boxing gloves, hand cuffs, ties, belts, gaudy jewelry or anything that will encourage people to be wacky.
  3. Disposable cameras are a great way for your guests to capture whatever is going on in their circle. How do you ensure that Uncle Bill’s hilarious moves on the dance floor are captured? With disposables! Depending on your budget, each table can have one or everyone in the wedding party have their own. Children can capture some incredibly poignant shots, reminding everyone how life is seen through a child’s eyes.

While props are fun, traditional wedding photographs provide that touch of timeless class, and a photographer is still needed. Adding props provides a great interactive way for guests to get involved, but you don’t want to forget about the “real” pictures, either. Like everything in life, balance is key.

Every wedding is special, but time passes, memories fade, and real life sets in. Being able to look back at the day through photographs helps to remind us what is really important. We see the people who have come and gone, we take delight in the beauty, laugh at our goofiness, and we cherish those thoughts and images even more.
