Basics Night Photography Tricks
By: Date: November 29, 2019 Categories: Photography
  • Slow down the shutter speed. This allows more light in but anything slower than 1/60 second and you will need a tripod to avoid camera shake. This technique is good for taking photos of landscapes or city traffic. However it may not be that useful if you are photographing people who are constantly moving. If you are photographing moving people, keep the shutter speed above 1/60 and use flash instead.

By: Date: November 27, 2019 Categories: Camera

It is understood that Ibn al-Haytham, the man who invented the camera was certainly gifted. Another gifted man by the name Daniello Barbaro adjusted the camera obscura. He added a lens as well as a changeable opening with the intention of sharpening the cameras. All this time the camera was not portable. It is because it was constructed from heavy material. It could not be fitted into a bag or the pocket, which is possible with most modern cameras. It was not until the 1660s that the first moveable camera was invented.

So who invented the camera that one might carry from place to place? The reply, two folks by the names Robert Boyle and Robert Hooke. They had been English scientists. They in all probability simply got pissed off with being unable to take their camera along to seize …

Steps to take before capturing your Images

As good as digital enhancing a photo is, there are still a few things that you can do in order to make the process a whole lot easier before you start snapping away. If you have a good quality camera, one that allows you to make adjustments, it is a good idea to learn a bit about shutter speed and aperture settings.
