If you are interested in landscape photography, you probably need a wide-angle lens (wide-angle lenses). The best choices are the 24mm lens or below. Because the size of the lens enables you to shoot landscapes. However, the wide-angle lens that may not necessarily be able to produce images of the exotic landscape, if you can not make this well.
Here’s the most effective way in the use of wide-angle lenses to produce images of the perfect landscape.

1. Closer Better
Even if you use a wide-angle lens when you want to take a view, you are required to get closer to the object to be targeted. Otherwise, the image is too small. Come closer as much as possible, especially if you are using a 14 mm lens. Remember that the most important aspect in landscape photography is the foreground (foreground).

Although the resulting picture should look spacious, but of detail in the foreground is the main thing. When you wish to execute a shot wide, try to find some interesting foreground to be merged with the background (stones, flowers, trees, etc.). Objects like that makes images look more dramatic look.

2. Note Distortion
One of the obstacles that often occurs when using a wide-angle lens is the frequent occurrence of distortion. Photo distortion is the object shape changes resulting from shooting too close to the object. Some people like the effect, but the majority do not.

If you are not happy with distortion effects, you can fix it with a photo-editing program. You can use the tilt-shift lens and lens distortion existing filter in Photoshop.

3. Problems Polarizer Filters
If you take photos of wide-angle, you may find it difficult when using a polarizer filter. This is because when the target object with a stretch of blue sky, the result looks a bit unnatural. Polarizer can work better if there is no expanse of blue sky. Then, if you want to wear a polarizer filter, it is advisable to choose a filter that is thin in order to avoid the filter frame appears in the photo.

4. Tricks Composition
About the composition, when you discover the sights, such as railroads or rivers, you can take a photo of the corner and lead the audience (in this case the audience of the photo) to the object, and then through the photos. Techniques that can attract the eye and will make more in-depth picture sensation. Look for natural objects are curved or diagonal lines to put in your landscape photos.

5. Set Aperture
When you use a broad focal length lens, you’ll get a room sharpness (dept-of-field) deepening. Of note, when supported by the diaphragm aperture settings (aperture) is appropriate. Usually photograph landscapes or buildings require a photo with a broad depth of field.

For that the aperture can be set to f / 11 and above. The size of the aperture is denoted 0 with f / numbers. The size of the aperture on the lens is f / 1.4; f / 2; f / 2.8; f / 4; f / 5.6; f / 8; f / 11; f / 16; f / 22; and f / 32. This shows the size is inversely proportional – the larger the f / number, the smaller the aperture diaphragm – the smaller the f / number, the wider the aperture.

How Do You Achieve Perfect Black & White Photography With Your DSLR.

by admin

dslr camera photoSo most of us have a DSLR camera that captures images in colour but how do achieve the best Black and white photo conversion. What works best to capture the perfect black and white photograph – filters, the camera B & W mode or photo editing software. Professional photographer Karl Taylor reveals all!

To understand black & white photography you first need to understand a little bit about colour. As you are probably already aware, the primary colours of light are red, green and blue. In equal mixture, primary colours form white light. Secondary colours are cyan, magenta and yellow. These are opposite to the primary colours and each theoretically cancel out their opposite colour.

Recording in black & white provides a representation of a given colour, but instead of the colour being visible in the image, only the brightness or tonal value of the colour remains as a shade of grey or black or white. The range of tones that can be achieved in a black & white image is anything from black through various increasing tones of grey right up to pure white. The maximum purity of the white achievable depends on the base white of the paper that you are printing on.

Part of the art of black and white photography is to understand how the tonal value of colours in a scene will reproduce as a shade of grey or if they will appear as black or white. You may expect each colour to record as a different shade but some colours will reproduce as very similar shades even though the colours look completely different to the eye. Filters placed in front of a camera lens either enhance or reduce the coloured light passing through it and can further affect reproduction. Additionally the material you are recording the image onto and printing onto can also influence the final black & white image.

When using film, professional photographers are aware that each type of black and white film gives a different response to certain colours. Most reproduce a slightly different version of black and white and photographers have their personal favourites. More serious black and white photographers would also place colour filters in front of the lens to increase the contrast and change the tonal range of their image. The common colour filters applied for black & white film photography are deep red, an orange, a green or a yellow filter. But let’s face it, film is going the way of the Dodo and the computer has replaced the darkroom, so what are our options?

In today’s digital age we are now capturing images using sensors that only record in colour, if we want black and white we convert the image on a computer later. The level of success with this method largely depends on the conversion techniques you apply and your understanding of the colours in the scene. There are a variety of techniques that you can apply and each can yield a different result. It is worth noting however that although we are shooting on colour cameras it is still possible to influence the effect of the final black and white conversion at the capture stage by using filters.

Admittedly, having tested the technique of different colour filters on RGB capture, I would say the results vary in degree of success and in most cases with the right knowledge you can adjust an RGB colour image very precisely using good black and white conversion methods in your software. However I have had interesting results using a green filter on a colour digital camera and would also highly recommend using a polarising filter for most of your black and white landscape photography. Polarising filters increase the richness of colour and contrast in your image, which in turn means that your software has richer colour information to play with when making a black & white conversion.

But lets learn a bit about colour first.

Each opposite colour would cancel the other out – for example Red is the opposite colour of Cyan and Blue is the opposite colour of Yellow. Combining two of the primary colours forms the secondary colours. For example combining Red and Green light would create yellow. Combining Blue and Green light would create Cyan and combining Blue and Red would create Magenta. If you were to combine opposite colours you would create Black. If you combined all 3 primary colours you would create white light. If you combined all 3 secondary colours with subtractive mixing using optical filters you would create black.

As an experiment of black & white conversions, I photographed a series of test images using an RGB colour digital camera (with a CMOS sensor) but I also shot the scene with colour filters applied. The filters I used were the traditional colour filters used for black and white film and not designed for RGB capture, but I decided it would be an interesting exercise regardless.

1.A straight colour image with no filter
2.A straight colour image, with a Polarising filter
3.An Orange filter attached to the front of the lens
4.A Red filter
5.A Green filter
6.A Blue filter.

Each image was then loaded into Photoshop and converted to greyscale mode (the most simplistic method of creating a black & white image). I then decided to convert the original colour image (with no filters) using the black and white adjustment layer (a more versatile method of conversion) but this time manually adjusting the tonal range using the Photoshop colour sliders in the black and white conversion palette. In each case I was able to eventually achieve a very similar result to the standard greyscale conversions taken with the colour filters, therefore proving that using colour filters during RGB capture is rather futile.

It was, however, more difficult to achieve as good a result as the image taken using the polarising filter and I would also add that a straight black & white conversion from an RGB image with the green filter applied gave a more appealing starting point in this test. Further experimentation on different scenes at different times of day would be required to reveal any overall benefit.

Some digital SLRs have a monochrome mode where you can preview the image on the LCD screen in black & white. This capture mode is not a true black and white capture only a conversion preview of the colour file, but still useful for checking results when trying different filters for black and white.

In practical terms most of us will be shooting normal colour files in order to capture a good colour image and then wanting to make the best conversion possible. So let’s take a look at some of the techniques you could use in Photoshop CS4 to make good black and white conversions from a standard colour image.

The first and most obvious is to use a black and white adjustment layer, this will provide you a colour palette whereby you can adjust the brightness value of a given colour in your scene and reproduce it as a different shade of grey. By using the colour selector slider you can physically place your mouse on your image and slide it to see the effect on a given colour. When using this technique I like to make a separate copy of the colour image and keep it open on my desktop in another window as a reference to where certain colours are in the scene. By using an adjustment layer instead of an actual action you can flick the layer on and off to check your results.

Often you will find as you adjust your image colour values certain parts of the picture look better in black and white at one setting while other parts look better at another setting. If this is the case I create a new black and white layer for each of my favourite parts of the image and name the layer accordingly then rub through the layers afterwards to reveal the best part of each one.

The Channel Mixer adjustment layer can also be used for creating black and white images by checking the monochrome box and mixing the channels at various percentages to yield different results. In the tab at the top of the palette is a useful drop down menu that applies a similar effect to using the colour filters on black and white film that I mentioned earlier. Again creating new layers with different percentages and then blending the required areas can achieve more personalised results.

Another interesting technique that I learnt from a fellow photographer is to apply two Hue and Saturation layers to your image, set the top layer to the layer blend mode colour and set the saturation to “-100”. On the bottom layer you can then adjust the hue slider to recreate the effect of a multitude of colour filters in conjunction with the saturation slider. Again saving new flattened layers from your favourite results and blending them later.

With the new Camera Raw palette in CS4 (accessed through Bridge) you will find a greyscale conversion tab that offers a very versatile control panel with an additional tab for creating split tone images (sepia effects etc.) On the greyscale conversion palette there are more colour sliders than the black & white adjustment option in Photoshop (don’t ask me why?) these extra sliders give you slightly more versatility in your conversion but you are unable to work on layered files and are restricted to working with a flattened tiff, jpeg or RAW file.

Other tips you might find useful with practise are to create a gradient map on top of your black and white conversion allowing you to map a specific tonal range over the whole image by pre-selecting which tone you want to go where – this can be useful for adding a boost of contrast to parts of your image by history brushing away areas you don’t require or if you applied this is an adjustment layer you could apply a mask to select the areas you wish to retain and remove.

To fully understand this process I advise you read about layer masks and gradient mapping in Photoshop and related manuals.

For a final contrast boost to your black and white conversions I find the Unsharp Mask filter at a setting of about 20/50 (for a 22MegaPixel Image) very effective, then use the edit > fade slider to adjust the image to suit. A setting of 15 percent and 20 pixels would be more appropriate on a 12MP camera.

Finally and most importantly don’t forget that all of the above is totally irrelevant if the image you have captured doesn’t work. I don’t believe a bad colour image will be miraculously saved by converting it to black and white! Black and white photography is still photography and capturing a creative image is still key.

Looking Into The Technical Aspects Of Wedding Photography

by admin

All credit goes to the wedding photographers as they are the one responsible to capture all the finest moments without getting tired. Without them it is almost impossible to capture the bride and groom at their best on their wedding day. It is quite natural that the wedding couples rush to share their newly photographed wedding pictures to friends and relatives through all ways like e-mail, posting on wedding sites and blogs, sending pictures via cell phones, a CD, or even the internet. Thus the wedding pictures tend to travel larger distances and compliments queue up.

The most popular wedding photography format is the JPEG format. JPEG has quite a few hidden levels of data and information that most users are not aware of. JPEG has quite a few latent levels of data and information that most users do not realize exist. Metadata is intended to help the user to further define the characteristics of a photograph or digital image. In some cases, metadata information may be of a sensitive nature. Metadata is embeddable by both JFIF (JPEG File Interchange Format) and Exif (Exchangeable Image File Format), which allow for various forms of encapsulated information in a JPEG file. The JFIF format was necessary to create files from JPEG data. JFIF was originally designed by Eric Hamilton. This format allowed JPEG data to be shared across platforms. This format boasted many features, some of which include: JPEG compression, PC / Mac / UNIX compatibility, YCbCr color space, and many other features. Meanwhile The Exif format is almost universally followed by wedding photographers using digital cameras. Exif was created by the JEIDA (Japan Electronic Industry Development Association). The Exif specification uses the existing JPEG file format, adding a special feature called metadata tags. This is where a JPEG file can contain many levels of information. Other specifications that embed metadata include:

– IPTC headers (International Press Telecommunications Council.
– XMP (Extensible Metadata Platform) from Adobe.
Given below are the types of information that may be embedded in a JPEG file:
– Copyright Information.
– Image manipulation software used: (Photoshop, Paintshop, Corel Draw).
– Text comments.
– GPS location (Global Positioning Satellite).
– Serial numbers.

Metadata, thumbnails and Exif data can be combined to create large file sizes. The size of the JPEG files can be reduced greatly up to fifty percent by removing metadata. Your wedding websites can also gain god features like reduced file traffic and faster downloads.

Advantages Of Mental Photography How Mental Photography Can Improve Your Memory Profoundly

by admin

Mental photography is a natural learning method that permits individuals to tap into their photogenic memory. Every person is capable of developing theirs.

A person who learns to tap into theirs can open up their mind’s vast potential.

Mental photography connects the subconscious as well as the conscious in a way that few things are able to. When an individual is able to construct a bridge between the two, they’re able to retain 100% a lot more data and increase their reading speed an equal amount. Even so, lest you get confused, mental photography produces significantly greater results then speed reading. The average person reads 250 words per minute. Mental photography can enable an individual to read 25,000 words per minute. Below, we will take a look at the advantages of mental photography in higher detail.

Improved whole brain activity: The vast majority of individuals only use a tiny percentage of their total brain power. Whilst most of us are used to our limited mental capacities (though we do not realize that they’re limited), there is so significantly far more out there. It’s just a matter of being able to tap into it. Mental photography can assist individuals do precisely that.

Stronger neural pathways: Mental photography can assist strengthen the neural pathways. These pathways are responsible for brain activity. When they are made stronger, an individual is able to -get more- out of their brain. Simply because their brain activity is stronger, they are able to process and retain information greater, significantly like they could as a child, when a vast amount of our learning takes place.

Higher connection between the conscious along with the subconscious: One of the most well identified benefits of mental photography is that it improves the connection between the conscious and subconscious.

Every single person is born with mental photography abilities. In fact, just about each and every 1 of us utilizes our natural photogenic memory the very first five years of our life. This is why we are able to learn and retain so significantly data so quick. As we get older we use it less and less, which is why it becomes significantly more hard to discover new things once we reach a certain age. Have you ever tried to discover a new language as an adult? The great thing, however, is that we never lose the capacity to learn in this manner. It may be re-learned or awakened.

Sometimes, making an eye contact with that person can help you ease the uncomfortable feeling that you have inside. By making an eye contact, you are signifying to that person that want to say something. If that person also maintains eye contact, then show a smile. If you are given a smile in return, then that’s really awesome. There are instances where you can determine by this means if the person that you are trying to speak to has something else to do. If a person is using the phone, then that person may not be ready for some talks. The same thing with persons who are reading books or wearing a headset.
