dog_with_paw_on_cameraKeep these basic photography tips in mind the next time you venture out on a photo adventure! Perfect for professional, amateur and recreational photographers.

Visualize : Keep a list of things you want to photograph and visualize how you want these photos to look. When you are ready to check a shot off of your list, you can plan ahead and have the details sorted out- time of day, season, relevancy, obstacles, etc. Consider all the elements needed to get that perfect shot!

Consider Color: There are endless possibilities in the colors of the rainbow. Color creates mood, emotion and power, so use it to your advantage!

Simplify: Make sure that background, props, edits and lighting do not distract from the focus of your photo! Keep it clean and simple to drive your vision home.

But Don’t Be Ordinary: Make your photographs demand a reaction. Get close to your subject for an awesome macro view. Try different angles to present a new perspective. And please, don’t plop your subject in the center of your photo.

Always Be “On”: Photo opportunities spring up unexpectedly throughout the day so be prepared! Always have a camera on you (even a simple camera phone) and capture those little moments that build big days.

Be Discrete: Keep your camera ready at hip height and adjust to take interesting candid photos, evoking true emotion from your subjects when they least expect it. This is a great way to document an event, gathering or special occasion among friends.

Keep Quantity: Shoot continuously. Take many photos in the now and worry about deleting and editing later. Your initial reaction to a photo may change. Don’t be too hasty in the moment! You might end up deleting a picture-perfect shot.

So there you have it! 7 easy photography tips that every photo-taker should keep in their camera bag. And if all else fails.. take a selfie! We have easy tips to perfect those too.

How to Buy the Right Digital Camera

March 10, 2011

Finding the right digital camera can be a hard decision for you to make because there are so many different types, brands, styles, and sizes available on the digital camera market today. This article is going to show you the specific things you should consider when purchasing a digital camera.

The first thing that must be done is to budget the amount of money you are willing to spend on a digital camera and stick to it. Doing so will allow you to shoot directly for the cameras that are in that price range or lower. A digital camera can come with so many different, attractive features that it is easy to be lured into something you simply cannot afford.

Another key aspect in choosing the right digital camera for you is to consider how you intend to use the camera. This is important because a digital camera can snap pictures at different speeds. If you simply intend to take pictures of your family and friends, this may not have much bearing for you. However, if you intend to take photographs of moving objects, you will need a camera that will snap a picture at a higher speed.

Next, consider the memory of the digital camera and how often you will use it. These two combined should not be taken lightly. If you are simply going to use the camera every now and again, a smaller digital camera will be suitable. However, if you will use it often and maybe even professionally, you will need a camera that can carry a large number of photographs at one time.

Consider your experience in using cameras. If you are a beginning photographer choose a digital camera that is uncomplicated and easy to use. You will also need to consider the lenses. Are they appropriate for both close up and distance shots or will you need a separate lens for either one? Choosing to purchase the separate lens is of course a personal decision, based upon how you intend to use the camera.

While considering these aspects, use the power of the internet and conduct online research. This will allow you to check out different brands and styles, making your decision a little easier. However, it is recommended that you actually visit the store and actually hold and inspect the digital camera. This will ensure that you are getting a digital camera that is just right for you.

Finally, choose a digital camera that you are comfortable with and is affordable. It is not a wise decision to place yourself in debt just because the digital camera offers all of these cool features. Choose one that you are happy with and will work well for your needs.

Photography Blogging for Shutterbugs

October 13, 2009

Whether you are an artist or hobbyist who wants to create a photo blog, or whether you are just somebody who enjoys learning about new places and things, spending some time looking at the most popular photography blogs on the internet can be a very rewarding endeavor.

Posting photographs in a blog format on a daily, weekly, or occasional basis is a great way to express yourself while reaching viewers in an emotionally charged and aesthetically engaging way. Also, surfing photo blogs can help you to get a whole new perspective on the world in which we live.

Many people who run image blogs are photographers by trade, but photo blogging is also very popular among hobbyists and amateur shutterbugs. A lot of the most popular photo blogs have gained attention because the pictures on them are of the highest artistic caliber, and a lot of the people who run these striking blogs are graduates of prestigious art schools with impressive professional portfolios. However, some of the most well known and most often visited photo blogs are as notable for their concepts as for the pictures themselves.

Whether you are an artist or hobbyist who wants to create a photo blog, or whether you are just somebody who enjoys learning about new places and things, spending some time looking at the most popular photography blogs on the internet can be a very rewarding endeavor. You can travel to another place or another time by seeing pictures of faraway locations and long-gone eras. You can see your own neighborhood with fresh eyes by discover how local artists have photographed the town or city in which you live.

Photo blogging allows people to communicate all of these things and more, which makes it a very exciting part of the modern blogosphere. If the best thing about web technology is that it allows people to reach each other in a very personal way from across great distances, then in many ways photo blogs are the most successful kind of web sites.

The fact that photo blogs range from forums to display the work of highly skilled artisans to playful collections of curiosities shows that photo blogging is a truly diverse form. Another fact that photo blogs are so easy to build and to update makes this kind of visual communication very democratic, and enables people at all skill levels to become a part of the global conversation about the nature and value of photography today.

Tools For Digital Editing

February 6, 2009

The following article covers some of the tools used to edit digital photos. If you’ve been thinking you need to know more about them, here’s your opportunity.

While the use of digital cameras has made it easier for photographers to quickly check whether or not they like the shot they’ve taken, there are still usually flaws that need to be touched up or a crop that will make the image more dramatic. Because of this, they need to use image editors to produce their desired results.

While image editors that are built-in to the computer’s OS (take Microsoft Paint, for example) can do very basic editing, power users such as professionals and web designers need more powerful programs.

There are a number of good image editors out there that are popular among photographers and web designers alike. For one there’s Adobe Photoshop.

Ever since it was released in 1990, its use has become an industry standard in the image editing industry. Then there’s Corel PHOTO-PAINT of the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite.  This program specifically targets photographers who wish to edit their images using the computer.

You may not consider everything you just read to be crucial information about photo editing software. But don’t be surprised if you find yourself recalling and using this very information in the next few days.

Another photo editing software is GIMP which stands for GNU Image Manipulation. The good thing about this photo editor is that you can use it in a variety of operating systems such as Windows, Mac and Linux/Unix. For those who are used to the Photoshop interface, there’s the GIMPshop developed by Scott Moschella.

Google has also developed Picasa which is a basic photo editing and organizing software which can be useful to photographers who only need to crop, fix red eye, and adjust the hues on their photos.

It never hurts to be well-informed with the latest on photo editing software. Compare what you’ve learned here to future articles so that you can stay alert to changes in the area of photo editing software.

Five Tips for Great Photography

October 16, 2008

How are you at taking pictures? If you are like me, I’m sure we both have room for some improvement. Being a freelance graphic designer, I have to know how to take good photos. I never know when a client will want an original picture for a project. So I thought I would share five tips to help you with your photography.

  • To create a personal and inviting composition when kids and pets are the subject, get down to their level.
  • Move your subject off center to bring more life to your photo.
  • Move in close on your subject to give it more impact.
  • When taking pictures outside, check the direction of the lighting.
  • Turn your camera vertical for more great shots.

The tips above will work for both film and digital cameras. Personally I prefer a digital camera for several reasons. First, the pictures can be viewed imedeately. Second, no waiting for them to come back from the photo store. Finally, digital photos are easier to upload to the computer.

What is your preference? Do you prefer film or digital cameras? Feel free to post your resopnse. We could get an interesting conversation going on here.
