By: Date: August 16, 2019 Categories: Photography

Retouch the Entire Image

While it may sound obvious, many beginners make the mistake of retouching only the face. For ideal results you should take your time to catch any mistakes that might be on the entire photo. For example, you should take your time to catch distracting dust spots, marks and hairs.

Light Triangle
By: Date: August 15, 2019 Categories: Photography

You already know that you need light to take a picture and that too little or too much light will spoil that picture, so how do you adjust the amount of light that your camera takes in, in order to capture your chosen moment?

The first thing to look at is shutter speed. This is the amount of time that a light blocking cover is moved out of the way to allow light to the sensor. Taking a hobby level digital single lens reflex camera as an example the shutter speed is adjustable from 1/4000th of a second up to 30 seconds. Obviously, the longer the shutter is open, the more light will be let in. If the camera is hand held and the sensor is open for 1/30th second or longer there is a real risk of not being …

Unfortunately, our cameras are far from bullet-proof. Cameras are easily damaged by things like wind, dust, sand, precipitation, and extreme weather conditions. It is therefore extremely important to protect our cameras from even the smallest of things. As already established, a camera carrying case will do just that.

When choosing a digital camera carrying case, the main thing to consider is the size that you will need. You will want to select a case that is large enough to hold your camera, yet small enough to keep it from moving around inside of the case.

Camera Aperture
By: Date: August 10, 2019 Categories: Camera

Put quite simply your camera aperture is the opening in your camera’s lens that allows differential amounts of light through the lens to the cameras light sensitive sensor behind it. Together with the ISO value and shutter speed of your camera it controls the light exposure used to create your photograph.

The size of your camera aperture is controlled by settings called f/stops. An f/stop can also be likened to the human eye as the iris which controls the size of the eye’s pupil. Similarly the smaller the f/stop value (iris) the larger the camera aperture (pupil) and the more light that passes through the lens to the cameras sensor. The larger the f/stop value the smaller the aperture and the less light passes through..

Digital cameras will allow you to choose from an f/stop range dependent on your camera …
