It provides such a wide variety of interesting subjects as we discover nature’s palette and the innumerable creations around us. We can immortalize a moment and enjoy it for a lifetime. As you learn about nature photography and begin your new venture, here are some tips that can certainly improve your skills and increase your passion for your photos of landscapes.

Start with a camera:

To begin, purchase a simple camera and lens. As you learn more and gain experience you may want to graduate to a more expensive camera. As you practice, you will learn the direction you want to pursue in landscape photography and that will determine the equipment you will need. So for now, keep it simple. You don’t have to start with the best digital camera. I recommend starting with an SLR digital camera. These cameras have a lot of bells and whistles on them and take some

How To Sell Photos Online

Sell Photos OnlineLet me get you straight, you wanted to make money in digital photography but you don’t like to spend even a single dime? I don’t think you can even make it. You know, business is like a gamble. You need to take the risk. The lesser money you spend, the lesser the risk but the lesser the expected ROI (return of income)you’ll have. And the higher you are willing to pay, the higher the risk but it gives more chance of having higher ROI. That’s the formula of business. You can play safe and not spend anything but don’t expect to gain more money by not risking even a bit.

So you wanted to sell photos online? Okay you must then be willing to spend something. The good thing in stock photography is that you don’t have to spend that much to get you started. But for you to really start your online business in selling your good photos, you must have an online store. You can create yours using the free blogger of google or you can also

Should I Buy A Tripod

TripodThere’s a ton of accessories available for your digital camera, and you can easily fall into the “gotta have this, gotta have that” trap. Having said that, I’m going to recommend one more item that is a must for any amateur photographer–a tripod. Happily, this is one of those camera accessories that you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg on. There are tripods with high customer ratings for as little as $30 and there are great tripods available for $400 to $500. It’s your choice, but this is one of those times where less can be more.

There are some good reasons to purchase a tripod. If you’re taking pictures in very low natural light (nighttime cityscapes come to mind), it’s important to minimize “the shakes” which occur naturally when holding a camera and shooting. This is true even with cameras that posses vibration reduction or image stabilization features. A tripod is a must in this situation. A tripod can also minimize camera movement on long zoom shots, where the effects of camera movement are exaggerated.

Types Of Shot In Photography

long shot photographyTaking pictures is easy and anyone can do it actually. But if you want to make it to the next level, it is better for you to learn the types of shot in photography.

This type of shots in photography is also applied in TV Broadcasting and video production. Let’s see each of them and learn their uses too:

1. Long Shot (LS) or Wide Shot (WS)

This type of shot includes almost everything that can fill your camera’s frame. From the name itself, it means you must take the shot as wide as possible.

Uses: Wide shot is used to establish the scene. It gives the general view of the place. In telling a story, WS is used first to show the audience where the setting is. In landscape photography, it is also used to show beautiful scenes such as mountain ranges, sea shore, trees etc.

2. Medium Shot

The “in between” in the types of shot in photography is called the Medium shot. If the wide shot includes almost everything, Medium shot frames the scene closer. If your wide shot

Photography Composition Basics Every Photographer Needs To Know

Photography Composition BasicsWhether you’re a moderately experienced photographer looking for a digital photography review to get up to speed or you’re still learning photography composition basics, composition is something that you’ll hear a lot about. In case you’re unclear about the term, composition refers to how subjects are positioned relative to their background and how shots can be framed differently to produce different results.

One thing you’ll notice in amateur photographs is that they’re usually center focused, with the subject being positioned in the center of the frame. Even though there’s nothing necessarily wrong with this, it often means a photograph which is lacking in excitement. Viewers are usually drawn away, not towards, symmetry in photographs.

Photography Composition Basics And The Rule of Thirds

The rule of thirds is a very simple but effective tool which is one of the photography composition basics that every photographer should know. It involves looking at your frame as being divided into thirds both horizontally and vertically. The points where these lines converge tend to draw the eye; and by incorporating this knowledge into your composition, you’ll create more interesting photos

Always check the weather forecast, make sure to know the route, the right clothes, and so forth.

Cant Find Any Lumix Digital Camera Reviews

Lumix Digital CameraHaving difficulty finding Lumix digital camera reviews written for the common man?

You are not alone friend. The good news is there are a few out there if you are persistent. I think Lumix digital camera reviews are all written for the expert photographer crowd. It seems like the few reviews out there for the higher end models use terminology that the pros understand.

I consider myself a decent hobby photographer, and I understand most of the lingo. It does make a difference when I read the Lumix digital camera reviews though. They seem to key in on the most obscure features and capabilities of the cameras rather than discussing what most people want to know:

How good are the photos? How user friendly are the controls? How comfortable is the camera in the hand? Is it worth the price? What bonus features or accessories are included that I might not know about?

To me, these seems like basic points the vast majority of consumers would like to see discussed prominently in Lumix digital camera reviews. Apparently, Panasonic Lumix cameras are a favorite among

Starting A Photography Business

How To Create An HDR Photograph

Create An HDR PhotographMany of times you will be somewhere when you just can’t seem to get the perfect photo. The scene is beautiful and you are trying every combination of settings available to you but just cant seem to capture what is before your eyes. You need to create an HDR photograph if this is the case.

What is HDR? Well HDR is a photography term short for High Dynamic Range and it is the technique used for achieving a greater dynamic range of a photograph by enhancing the lightest and darkest areas of the image. This is accomplished by capturing multiple photos of the same subject taken at different exposure values, usually referred to as exposure bracketing.

To create an HDR photograph I recommend using a digital SLR camera as they have many more options and features that most point and shoot cameras don’t contain. Although any camera that allows manual over or under exposure of a photo can be used to create HDR images. You will need to take at least 3 photos of the same scene

How To Photograph A Wedding Reception

Photograph A Wedding ReceptionIn this article we’ll address tips on how to photograph an outdoor wedding reception. I love outdoor wedding receptions – you typically have an abundance of light, more room to move around and the settings tend to be beautiful – country clubs, vineyards, and garden weddings! However, as the light tends to fade, there is potential to run into trouble. Let’s go over a few tips to help make your next wedding reception run smoothly.

How to Photograph a Wedding ReceptionTip #1 – Use longer lenses. The beginning of the reception typically consists of the bride and groom mingling with their guests, either during a cocktail hour or after they eat (some couples forgo a receiving line, planning to go table to table at the reception instead). This is a great opportunity for some wonderful images – hugging their guests, showing off the ring, talking and laughing. But you don’t want to be too close – it’s not a group hug after all! By using longer lenses, you can be more unobtrusive and will typically capture more natural looking photos because your subjects won’t

Whether you are an amateur or a professional photographer, you surely captured a lot of people already in your camera. Any person who has a camera take pictures of those personal moments such as family outing, workmates doing something in the office, hang outs with friends, etc. Professional photographers on the other hand might took some people photography in weddings, events, modeling, and what not.

As you can see, it’s but normal already for us to do people photography. We capture different reactions from people loves to smile in front of the camera and people who are camera shy. In different occasions, techniques are also applied in order to capture those great shots:

1. Photographing children

In people photography, taking children as subjects might be the hardest. This is because children do unpredictable reactions that might be against what we wanted to photograph. It takes them also a very fast span of time in preserving those good reactions worth photographing so it gives us very little time in preparing ourselves to press the

5 Tips To Better Photography

5 Tips To Better PhotographyIf you are like most amateur photographers and are always looking for that next great shot. I suggest you try these 5 tips to better photography I have written. Knowing these will allow you to turn any photo opportunity into something perfect every time you press the shutter button.

1. The first of 5 tips to better photography is all about imagination and creativity. You want to take a picture that stands out from the rest and doesn’t get bunched into the “just another picture” category right? So try and visualize where everyone else would take a picture from and don’t take that one. Try and find the spot where few people would think to take a picture. The more unique the viewpoint, the more unique your picture will stand out.

2. The second tip is all about perspective. We tend to view things from our own perspective, well how about from someone else’s perspective for a change. Think about what the dog would see, get down to his level and have a look around. You will be surprised at how different the subjects

Which Camera Lens To Buy

Which Camera Lens To BuyIf you thought it was tough deciding which digital SLR camera was best suited for you, then just wait until you want to upgrade your SLR camera lens. Deciding which camera lens to buy may be the most important decision a photographer will make. With all the different sizes, styles, makes, and functions available to choose from, the possibilities become endless.

First thing I want to do to help you understand which camera lens to buy is breakdown exactly what the differences are in the popular lens styles.

A Normal / Standard Lens is just that, a lens that is decent enough for most pictures but does not excel at any one style. It will give you good results but will not give you the versatility of taking close-ups or the panoramic shots you may desire. Also the zoom capability is very limited.

A Telephoto Zoom Lens is a lens used to take photographs of objects at a distance but also allow you to zoom in on a closer subject for an intimate portrait or a blurred background.

How Digital Photography Has Changed The World

Digital PhotographyThe recent news of photography giant Kodak’s decision to file for bankruptcy was met with sadness from those who remember the golden years of the company. While critics suggest that Kodak’s downfall was its failure to completely embrace the digital photography revolution, the company deserves recognition for introducing the very first digital camera to the world.

Almost forty years ago, Steven Sasson created Kodak’s first digital camera. It looked more like a small kitchen appliance than the compact models we are used to nowadays! It took its first image in 1975 and the rest, as they say, is history. It is thought that around 2.5 billion people across the world now own a digital camera.

One of the huge benefits of digital photography is that apart from the initial cost of the camera, there is practically no cost involved. In the past, photography was an expensive hobby, with rolls of film and the developing process proving to be costly.

Good quality digital cameras with a range of features can be picked up for a great price nowadays. In an increasingly competitive marketplace, manufacturers need to keep
