Hi and welcome to my website

I’m a photographer with a passion to create memories

An excellent method of showing everyone all the beauty that exists in the world is photography. If you practice enough and learn the correct techniques, you may even be able to make some money with it someday. You will find some great tips on how to take great looking photos.

You should use digital techniques in order to shoot pictures that look like graphic pencil sketches, oil paintings, watercolors, and more. There are many different types of software programs that will make it quite simple for you to alter the look of the photos; Adobe Photoshop is considered to be an industry standard program. Instantly converting photographs to pieces of art is as simple as selecting the “filter” button, choosing which medium you prefer, then clicking your selection.

Give your the white balance feature on your camera a try. Taking indoor pictures is tricky because of the yellow tone the lightbulbs give off. Instead of trying to play with the light in your space, adjust the feature called white balance instead. This will give your pictures a professional appearance.

Keeping your batteries charged will help you never miss the shot of a lifetime. You should always load your digital camera with fully-charged batteries, because it can be a real energy hog, especially when you use the LCD screen. Another excellent suggestion is to always carry spare batteries with you to ensure you don’t miss a potentially incredible shot.

Find the right combination between shutter speed, aperture and ISO. Those three things affect your picture’s exposure. Unless you are shooting for an artsy, atmospheric result, try to avoid under- or over-exposed photos. With a little experimentation, you can strike the right balance between the 3 settings to deliver the results you want.

Remain completely immobile when it’s time to click the shutter to get that ultimate photograph. Even the smallest movement could make your picture come out wrong. If you have to, give yourself a few seconds to get in a comfortable spot and stand still.

Usually the subject will be looking directly at the camera. Get your subject to look at something to the right or left of the camera for a unique picture. Or, you could have your subject focus their gaze on something or someone else in the frame.

When photographing, utilize a white balance that isn’t automatic. This gives you a much greater degree of control over the appearance and mood of your photographs, and can often produce stunning results. You will have to get used to using a manual white balance, but once you do, you will gain more creative control over your photographs.

For a creative touch, experiment with the focus. Using a smaller depth of field (f-stop) value will emphasize the subject and de-emphasize the background. This technique is great for portraits or close ups. The bigger the f-stop number, the bigger the depth of field. This means that if your depth of field is larger, then a larger portion of the picture will appear focused on. You want to do this when taking landscape photos.

Most of the time, when you’re thinking about photographing some item, you have to think about whether you’re going to show more of the shadows or the highlights of it. If you can’t choose between highlights and shadows, take two shots. If you still can’t determine which shot is better, use photo-editing software to blend the two shots into a new composite photo. This composite photo may seem perfect to your eye.
