Photography Tips for beginners
• of photography for beginners tips
1. If possible, try to light falling on the subject is at an angle. When light is directed at a certain angle, it creates shadows and glare, making the image more effectively than with the "flat" light.
2. Make the image even more spectacular by shooting to the time when the shadows are long and deep. To get a unique image, try to take a picture of just a shadow of a person or object.
3. Remove when the light becomes the most colorful, just after dawn, or before sunset. At this time the sun is low on the horizon and gives a warm golden light, which is so pleasing to the eye. Landscapes and portraits appear in this light just fine.
4. In daylight portraits often appear harsh shadows. Soften those shadows, turn on the flash, which will make the dark areas a little brighter. Just go to Settings and select the flash should be on at all times. This method gives excellent results, even in bright light.
5. To shoot someone at sunset, turn the flash on and turn the one you're shooting, with his back to the setting sun. When the flash is illuminated man. only its silhouette will be visible when the flash is off.
6. Turn on the light when taking pictures at home. With the help of lamps and overhead lighting any picture taken in a room, you can make it brighter. Light will add depth to the image, and often make the colors warmer. But the main thing - he lighten the background. 7. When working with light, try to "put" it on the side or rear of the subject. Light incident at an angle, almost always gives very interesting effects, creating artful designs and images that never appear in direct light.
8. If you shoot against the sun glare in the lens form, the fastest way to deal with this problem - ask a friend to cover the camera on top of your hands to shade the front lens. You will be able to immediately determine if it will achieve the desired result. Just make sure that when shooting hand photos were not included in the frame.
9. Patience - it is a decisive factor in creating the image. If you find a favorite story, but think that it would look better with a different light, better wait for a while. Or make a note and return to the same place at a different time of day, or even in other seasons.
10. Use a small flashlight to illuminate the subject. Place it over the object or under it at night to create an interesting glow, or use it as a flash. Capture images with a long exposure using flash as a light source. This will create interesting pictures on the glowing areas.
11. At the time of shooting at sunset look around. What seemed to be a dull day, miraculously comes to life at the touch of the last rays of the sun. Houses, cars, objects of any kind, from which the light is reflected on the special qualities of becoming dusk.
12. In most cameras with a built-in flash has a setting to suppress the effect of "red eye". When its activation before the main flash pre-flash is activated several times. If you do not take pictures of people, turn off this feature, because when its use is quickly discharged battery, and it does not help to highlight the plot. 13. The light reflected from the glass surface at an angle of 90 degrees to its source, so when to take a picture directly in front glass (window glass aquarium and m. P.), The image will be a large light spot. Move so the subject is slightly angled, then increase the probability that the reflected light passes by the camera.
14. Shooting against the light - is shooting in conditions where the light source is behind the subject and shines in the face of the photographer. It is difficult, because in the end only his silhouette can be seen in the image instead of the object and the background may be overexposed. However, if you shoot a subject closely, excellent image may be. Measures the exposure of an object, rather than behind it light.
15. When shooting against the light (when it is the brightest source is behind the subject), try to use fill flash. Sometimes you need to take pictures right in the direction of the sun, such as when shooting a beautiful sunset. Try to turn on the flash or use a Speedlight flash to illuminate your subject.
16. When shooting a subject located near the glass or mirror, be careful not to be perpendicular to the reflective surface, and remove at an angle. This will avoid hitting the reflected flash light on the picture.
17. Too bright sun can interfere with a portrait shooting, creating harsh shadows and brightly lit area to take off. In this case should be transferred to the person to open a shady spot and shoot with softer lighting. 18. The color sources have different color "temperature", so the pictures taken in different lighting conditions (under an incandescent lamp, fluorescent lamp, halogen lamp, sodium lamp, and so on. N.) Look different. This feature can be used to create interesting effects, opting instead for automatic white balance to any other. Experiment with different light sources to get different results.
19. Try turning off the flash at night to remove what is visible to the naked eye. Locate the flash off icon (usually it looks like lightning struck-through line) and select it. Hold the camera or use a tripod as the shutter speed can be very long.
20. When shooting landscapes at dusk or at night, use a tripod and shutter release cable or self-timer to increase exposure and get more light. This technique is used to create images, which car headlights look like a line, rather than as a point.
