Nikon Camera Bag
By: Date: November 18, 2019 Categories: Camera

Film Cameras. They are for avid photographers mostly. There is an intrinsic charm to film photography, but it’s definitely less practical and more expansive than digital photography. That being said it’s hard nowadays to come by an old school case, although not impossible. My suggestion is to look online for a leather case from Nikon. For the sake of the good looks and class you might get a second hand one.

Compact cameras. For the small point and shoot cameras there is a great selection of digital camera pouches to choose from. By far my favorite brand would be Crumpler, because they don’t put out any dull designs. Try to consider that next time you want to buy a camera pouch.

Depending on what you are looking for the camera bag to do for your camera you might consider ‘camera …

Analogue Photography
By: Date: November 18, 2019 Categories: Photography

The adjective “analogous” is from the Greek word analogos, meaning “comparable in certain respects”. From this comes the noun “analogue”, which is used to name a thing that is similar to another thing (e.g. The ethos of “return love for hatred” is a Taoist analogue to Christianity’s “love thy enemy“).

This name applied to film photography therefore seems paradoxical, since it serves to highlight the differences between film and digital photography via use of a term that is more correctly used to recognise similarities.

Analogue has a further specialised meaning. It refers to a signal where the output is proportional to the input, normally in relation to the combination of a device and a media that can together measure, record, or reproduce continuous information.

For example, older telephones converted the vibration of sounds to electric …

Golden Rules of Photography

Visual Literacy

Now that a lot of people are clicking on a daily basis, it is important to keep in mind that every picture clicked has a purpose and we not only click a frame but something that conveys a message. It is important to keep in mind that an image might influence others in various possible ways.

Visual literacy is about seeking rather than just looking around. When getting ready to click the shot, stop and think for a moment what the picture conveys.

Understanding that every picture has its own vision of the world is important and that when you click something or someone, try to pre-visualise what is being translated from the three dimensional reality in front of you onto the two dimensional space within the photograph frame. Your camera is just a tool which will lend …

Portrait photography came with the advent of photography during the early 19th century while it was trying to find its foothold as an art as well. With the invention of the camera came a more convenient way to capture a visible image rather than painting it which was more time consuming and less accurate. Each photograph back then used to have only 20 copies so the photograph had more value. With the advancement of technology, the cameras got fancier and more efficient. The clarity of each picture got better and the cameras got smaller and faster. Portrait photography advanced and changed with equipment.

Portrait photography is mostly performed professionally in a photo studio. The photographer has control over the camera equipment where he/she could adjust the direction and intensity of light thereby also editing anything that appears to be abnormal …

Perform Trick and Create Special Effects
By: Date: November 15, 2019 Categories: Photography

ISO speed – The ISO speed is the sensitivity of the camera to available light in the surroundings. For most cameras, the lowest ISO speed setting is 100. The good ISO speed settings for trick photography ranges between 100 to about 400 as this speed range greatly reduces digital image noise.

What could be annoying as having image noises in your photos? Image noises are those out-of-place pixels on your digital images that have to be cleaned up with an image editor like adobe photoshop. Not to spend hours cleaning up images you have just taken, it is best to minimize their occurrence by adjusting your camera’s ISO speed. Right?

Generally speaking, to get brighter image, you will have to increase your ISO speed setting (and vice versa). In places like a concert with low light, a higher ISO speed …

How to Make Beautiful Photos
By: Date: November 14, 2019 Categories: Photography
  1. To make your photos interesting you must have a camera with function, which allows you disable the automatic settings and set them manually. Often in practice it’s SLR digital camera. It also has a better matrix, which affects the quality of the photos and you can change lenses, allowing you to take your photos more diverse, giving you more space for creativity.
  2. Try to take pictures as best as possible, to make minimum adjustments on the computer later. Try to mentally divide the frame into nine equal parts and possibly put important objects on the intersections, not in the center of the photo. This will make the photo composition more dynamic.
  3. Don’t get carried away with the flash. It often makes blurry photos and faces can be flat. To avoid blurry photos lean hands on a firm surface and press
