18 Beautiful Photos Of Animals Looking Through Windows

Whether it’s a domestic animal quietly awaiting the return of its owner or a wild animal investigating an abandoned home, windows can beautifully frame your animal photo and take it from good to great. When shooting a subject that’s on the other side of a window (whether you’re inside or out), pay extra special attention to your camera’s focus – especially if you’re using the automatic instead of manual.

Understanding Histograms. Possibly the most useful tool available in digital photography is the histogram.

Understanding Histograms

It could also well be the least understood. In this article we will look at what a camera histogram tells the photographer and how best to utilize that information. Virtually every digital camera, from the simplest point-and-shoot to the most sophisticated digital SLR has the ability to display a histogram directly, or more usually superimposed upon the image just taken. (The Hasselblad H1, the latest generation of film & digital capable cameras, can display a histogram on the camera grip’s LCD while the image is separately displayed on the digital back’s LCD.) Achieving Better Focus and Sharpness in Your Images. Twice a month we revisit some of our reader favorite posts from throughout the history of Phototuts+.
