Night photography.

   Not my photo and not quite what I had in mind but on with the blog.I'd seen a few articles about night photography, the stars, milky way etc but another article caught my eye and it had photographs of American towns at night. http://www.bbc.com/news/in-pictures-39040237The pictures looked so good and I thought I'd like to try something like that. One thing was certain, my photos would look nothing like the ones in the article but you've got to start somewhere and half the fun is seeing... continue reading

Tripod or not? Learnt my lessons!

Basically I am not very fond of tripods. On rare occasions you need one and still you have to carry them around all the time. Another reason for not liking them is the lack of flexibility in positioning the camera (for example, horizontal or vertical, or the position I want to take). So, I never take a tripod with me.Coming back from Xi'an in China I noticed that in the hall of the Terracotta Army quite a few pictures had an ISO value of 6400 or close to it. And that the Shutter Speed I choose... continue reading

Our Obsession with Noise

When I started in photography back in the mid 1990s we were all shooting film and film that was manufactured for higher light sensitivity caused the silver halide to clump together causing a phenomenon we termed "grainy." Some photographers actually liked the look produced by this high speed film and a whole art subculture was born around it.Even today, in what can be called the digital age, these same individuals still practice their craft with high speed film.Even though the "we love grain"... continue reading

How $20 increased my acceptance ratio

About 18 months back, my acceptance ratio on DT was at about 35%. While this was an increase from the earlier 25%, thanks largely due to a slightly better understanding of microstock requirements and general composition, it was still a bit dispiriting to see many images being refused for poor image quality.I had sold a DSLR and settled down with an Olympus E-PL1, a small mirrorless camera, and a 14mm lens. While it took some great images in bright light, handholding was a major issue for night... continue reading

Long exposure at night

 As I realized this picture:first time I looked really good scene behind a photograph after I chose very carefully the place where I am aplasia surpirnde stage tripod-for pictures with long exposure primarily we need a tripod solid-then I set the camera to M mode, then I closed the aperture to 22, I set iSO to 100 and shutter speed to 10 secondsThis is the result !!!As a last tip I recommend you let one car, two to go and count how many seconds the road cross framed in the viewfinder... continue reading

Times are changing

Want to share what I saw the other day. We were invited to a wedding. The venue was at a "ranch" outside the city, well not a real ranch although they had a few farm animals more for showing. The real business is to have weddings and other events. As this is California one can plan to have weddings outside with relative little risk of foul weather. Guests were invited for six o'clock and the ceremony started at six thirty and with dinner and dancing it lasted till 10:30 or so.When I am at a wedding... continue reading

Getting Settings Right

I have always had a great passion for photography. I can still remember my first old 'point and shoot' camera my granddad gave me when I was six years old.I have recently bought myself the 'real deal' camera, complete with lenses, timer switches and the rest of the bells and whistles you can expect these days.It took me quite a while to get to grips with all the settings one had to balance with each other in order to get it just right, or shall I say: "as close as as possible to right", but... continue reading

More sharp, less noise.

LONG STORY SHORT!So you want sharpen images without noise with a good quality like a PRO. Okay, let's go.1st - Accept the limitations of your camera, it means you need as much light as cheaper your camera and lens are.2nd - Reduce ISO? As much as you don't let the image shake. Use at least the double of the angle range. (Ex. 200mm/400 of a second speed, if this keeps the image dark, higher the ISO, if it makes noise the only solution is put more light or just accept this limitation)... continue reading
