  • It's all about the children

    by Tempestz | 8th of May, 2013

    As mentioned in a previous blog of mine, capturing the perfect images of children sometimes means letting kids behave naturally to catch some great candid shots. Think of children exploring a beach at low tide and the expressions on their faces as they find a starfish or... More
  • Motion blur on subject

    by Alvera | 31st of August, 2012

    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... More

  • No Tripod? Use body parts...or whatever...

    by Haslinda | 24th of April, 2011

    This really does not sound as gruesome as the title implies. Well a tripod is particularly useful when taking photographs to reduce the inevitable camera shake. But sometimes it is just not possible to drag that tripod along. Especially in places like shopping malls, museums,... More
  • When is arty arty of when is it farty

    by Danienel | 13th of October, 2009

    So I'm all for creative blur, flair and weirdness, but only if it serves a purpose and it is executed willingly or serendipitously. What irkes me to no end is someone who doesn't have the skill to shoot a "boring" shot, but claims that their "breaking the rules" is artistic... More
  • When you have nothing to shoot, shoot motion

    by Julia161 | 7th of October, 2009

    When you have nothing to shoot you can go to the nearest bus-stop and shoot running cars. Use different shutter-speed for different effects. To freeze motion but still have wheels moving - around 1/1500, to make a natural motion blur - 1/20 or less. It's easier to make running... More

    I have just read a blog entry from Bwendy3. Here's my advice. Take a look at this photo: I did two things here. First, while taking it, I waited for the man to turn around so as not to see his face. Second, in PS: the people at the left are very small, yet, their... More
  • Macro Shoots n' Camera Vibrations

    by Thefinalmiracle | 17th of August, 2007

    Most of us experience most of hand-shakes when we shoot macro or highly zoomed shots. Especially those of us who don't use a tripod or a D-SLR, things become worse. Its just a vague idea I have that the vibration reduction techniques used in any camera are about generating... More
