    Photos in Full Bloom

    Last updated 3 months ago

    When it comes to photographing flowers, your unique viewpoint plays an important role your final results.   You stand before a field in full bloom, and while it’s beautiful in your eyes, the ability to translate its majesty through the lens requires a few techniques and a bit of planning. 

    For example, instead of standing above the flowers, consider getting low and shooting from that vantage point.  Don’t shoot right away, but instead, spend a few moments taking in the scenery and contemplating which parts of nature speak loudest.  Photographing from a lower point will allow you to better capture the details in the petals and the center, the small veins in the leaves and the slight change in hue in the bloom.  Filling the frame whenever possible will add more grandeur to the image and experimenting with your perspective may lead you to uncover new ways of seeing nature – and sharing it with others.

    The Ins and Outs of Digital Cameras

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Digital cameras can give even novice photographers the chance to take amazing pictures. If you are new to the world of high-tech cameras, use this guide to learn about some of the basics you will need to snap a great shot.

    Shutter Speed

    Old-school cameras that need film had mechanical shutters. Digital cameras, however, have a digital shutter, which means you can change the shutter speed electronically. This gives you easier control over the amount of light that passes through the camera’s opening and helps you take better pictures.

    Focal Length

    The way the lens is focused on your camera affects how it works with light. This focal length has a large impact on the final picture and is necessary for magnification. If you have a longer focal length, you have more magnification. If you have a shorter focal length, however, objects appear to be much farther away. A digital camera will either have an optical or a digital zoom, while some models have both options.

    Kind of Lens

    Digital cameras come with four different types of lenses and the kind you choose depends on why you need the camera. A fixed-focus, fixed-zoom lens are great for basic photographic needs. An optical-zoom lens with automatic focus is a better option if you want to play around with focal length. Cameras with digital zoom lenses can actually make a full-sized image from pixels. You can also find cameras with replaceable lens systems so you can change the lens based on your needs.
