    Photography Tips for the Summer Months

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Summer is an amazing time to capture breathtaking photographs. Whether you snap pictures of your children playing in the park or you document what New York City looks like bathed in warm sunlight, there are countless opportunities to take great photographs this summer. But with these opportunities come unique challenges. To help you capture the best image every time, here are some summer photography tips from your friends at Camera Land NYC.

    Underexpose Your Sunsets

    At this time of year there are plentiful chances to capture breathtaking sunsets from virtually every vantage point in the city. While shooting sunsets, try to underexpose the photograph a little to preserve the color saturation. Play around with your camera’s auto white balance feature, as it may try to filter out the golden tones of the setting sun.

    Use a Tripod and Cable Release

    Whether you’re taking portraits or nature photographs, a steady tripod will ensure that your pictures come out crisp and clear. A tripod and cable release are crucially important when taking long-distance shots or long exposures, as even the slightest bit of camera shake will destroy the photograph you are trying to take.

    Pan to Catch Fast-Moving Objects

    From air shows and balloon festivals to boating and sporting events, there are plenty of opportunities to take thrilling action shots this summer. But to make sure you get a crisp, clear image, follow the action through the viewfinder and shoot in continuous shooting mode so you don’t miss the action. For fast-moving objects, try a fast shutter speed to make sure your picture is sharp and focused.

    Camera Land NYC has everything you need to take breathtaking photographs this summer. In addition to our large selection of digital cameras and camera accessories, we provide film developing, framing, equipment repairs, and even photography classes.
