Camera, slow-motion, frame rates, flickering

When shooting high speed over 100fps with tungsten lamps we sometimes have problems with flickering light in the shot. The solution is to use more powerful lamps for slow motion. For example use a 5Kw lamp instead of a pair or three 1Kw lamps.   continue reading

Basic Tips for Photographing Waterfalls and Water

Over the years, I have found that I tend to gravitate towards photographing waterfalls and moving water.As someone who enjoys the outdoors, not only are these types of locations thoroughly enjoyable to visit, but, from a photographer’s point of view, there is a wide range of creative results that you can obtain by experimenting with some very basic photography techniques.For example, we’ve all seen the beautiful photographs of silky water cascading down waterfalls in smooth flowing sheets,... continue reading

Video frame rate

Frame rate – is often the reason of strobe motion on air of small local television companies. At the same time, frame rate is wonderful option to play with, when you need more accurate slow motion (in wedding footage, for example). Most of video editing software provide the opportunity to modify the rate and choose any other dimension instead of what was in a source. By changing numbers to the lower side (for ex. from 60fps to 23,976fps), you’ll get wonderfully slowed video.If you... continue reading

Repetitive Motion Injury

The age of digital photography has given me a problem that would not have occurred back in the film and darkroom era – namely, repetitive motion injury from processing images on the computer in Photoshop.Hence, my upload of work over the next while will be very small as I am to avoid computer use.My computer set-up is ergonomically correct, yet it still happened.Voice activated Photoshop hasn’t arrived yet, so I am not sure how to proceed if I still wish to process my images.I am sure... continue reading

New camera - new problems

This shoot is made with Nikon D80, because my Sony was broken. D80 is quite an obsolete camera, so it's not easy to make sharp images in motion. Unfortunately about 95% of all pictures can not be used in commerce.Olga's boyfriend came to the shooting almost by accident. However, what often happens is that these accidents allow you to create the best pictures. continue reading

Motion blur on subject

I made some photos at a drifting race. First one was approved today. I want to share my technique. First of all, you will need a shutter speed of about 1/8 - 1/20 sec. This is beyond my anti-shake abilities with a 450 mm lens so I use a tripod. Also, I pre-focused on the road - see photo below. But this is not all. Because it was a sunny day and my camera can do only 1/4000, I used a neutral density filter ND8 which gave me minus 3 full stops so with a f11 or f9.5 I was able to lower my shutter speed... continue reading
