Camera Lenses" In the last section, we saw that at any one point, a lens bends light beams to a certain total degree, no matter the light beam's angle of entry. This total "bending angle" is determined by the structure of the lens. A lens with a rounder shape (a center that extends out farther) will have a more acute bending angle. Increasing the bending angle has an obvious effect. Increasing the distance between the lens and the real image actually increases the total size of the real image. The same basic thing happens in a camera. Professional cameras let you attach different lenses so you can see the scene at various magnifications. Different lenses are suited to different situations.

Tips from the Top Floor How to Price Portrait Photography? Jodie Otte's Advice | MCP Photoshop Actions and Tutorials Blog for Photographers You are here: Blog Home » Business Tips » How To Price Portrait Photography To Make Money How To Price Portrait Photography? Words of Advice from a Professional Photographer As a general observation, I am shocked at the low prices of a lot of portrait photographers – especially new photographers, and I hope this isn’t offensive to anyone, but what is more important than your photography, is your business skills when running a business. This industry is completely saturated with under priced photographers – many talented. Business sense, that’s what. Everyone asks – how should I price my portrait photography? Another thing – if you do not need the money right now because your spouse is the breadwinner, now is a GREAT TIME to build an exclusiveness about your business. The thing about running a business – you have to take emotions out of it. Do you have a reason for pricing the way you do? So how do you price? Ask yourself how much you want to make per year. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Nikon D2H custom settings - Neil vN The D2H is an immediately impressive camera – extremely flexible, and offering a myriad of options that the photographer can set according to their own style and needs. Here are my preferences for the Custom Settings .. and why. As with my recommendations with the D100 and D70, there are some custom settings which I believe should be changed from the default settings. Then there are custom settings, which I believe should never be changed from the default. The Custom Functions are grouped into 6 categories: a – Autofocus b – Metering / Exposure c – Timers / AE & AF Lock d – Shooting / Display e – Bracketing / Flash f – Controls a1 .. AF-C is the Continuous Focusing mode, where the shutter can be tripped whether the subject is in focus or not, ie, Release Priority. default : Release button (ie, FPS is maintained), my preference : default, (Release priority). There are generally two ways that auto-focusing are used - - Continuous Focusing, with the focusing enabled on the rear AF-ON button.

How Cameras Work" Photography is undoubtedly one of the most important inven­tions in history -- it has truly transformed how people conceive of the world. Now we can "see" all sorts of things that are actually many miles -- and years -- away from us. Photography lets us capture moments in time and preserve them for years to come. The basic technology that makes all of this possible is fairly simple. A still film camera is made of three basic elements: an optical element (the lens), a chemical element (the film) and a mechanical element (the camera body itself). As we'll see, the only trick to photography is calibrating and combining these elements in such a way that they record a crisp, recognizable image. There are many different ways of bringing everything together. The optical component of the camera is the lens. But how can a piece of glass do this? When light waves enter a piece of glass at an angle, one part of the wave will reach the glass before another and so will start slowing down first.

The camera seems to power down gracefully, for example, much like the old film bodies. If you accidentally leave the camera on overnight with a full battery, the camera still claims ~87% battery charge 24 hours later, and that figure seems accurate. CompactFlash write performance can be superb. Autofocus performance is superb, though requires learning to use well. Color integrity is usually excellent, just as it has been with previous Nikon DSLRs, but with one caveat, which I'll get to in a moment. A second color problem took me longer to recognize: in some situations the camera has a green bias that can be ugly (see the software section in my eBook for a full example of this). Edge acuity is pretty darned good, though it comes with a minor caveat (potential moire). In an earlier iteration of this review I wrote that "near infrared is blocked more on this camera than on previous Nikon DSLRs." That's saying a lot, actually. Drawbacks

Camera Lens Once you've settled on the subject and the light, you have to decide on the relative prominence of objects in the scene. By moving the camera position back and forth, you can adjust the relative size of objects in the scene. After you're happy with the position, you pick a camera lens whose angle of view encompasses all the objects that you want to include in the photo. Objects? Au contraire! Aesthetic tip from MIT: when your nose sticks out 5" in front of your eyes, you don't want it to appear relatively more prominent. Suppose that you actually want this photo as the "before" illustration in a plastic surgeon's advertisement. Suppose that you wish to flatter Cyrano. What about the 24mm lens from this camera position? Exactly how long a camera lens do you need? Apologies to people from countries that have adopted sensible units. If sensors and camera lenses were perfect... you would need only one lens! In a perfect world, you would leave the house with only a Canon 14 super-wide lens. Rent

Enhance Contrast In this tutorial one of our senior members from our forums Japaslavian (Jeff Masamori over at Flickr) shares a simple photoshop technique for enhancing contrast. This is probably the most useful little adjustment I’ve come across (in Photoshop) just playing around a few years ago. It has served me well, and I hope it will do the same for you all, as there is not a single photo I have ever taken that does not look better without it. NEVER. Very very simple. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Before After/Edited So there you have it. Like I said, I’ve never taken a shot that this didn’t do miracles for. Makes a great action as well.

Comment photographier un feu d'artifice Les occasions de photographier un feu d’artifice sont nombreuses.
