    The Benefits of Working with Film

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Film or digital? It seems that every year as technology becomes more advanced, more photographers struggle between sticking to film and making the switch to digital. While digital cameras offers a number of benefits that appeal to people of all ages, film cameras still offer the better results that professional photographers desire.

    Digital cameras do not always produce the same quality of prints that film cameras produce. Some digital cameras have lower resolutions, resulting in fuzzier and less acceptable pictures. Many digital cameras also feature delays, leaving photographers to take fewer pictures than they could with a film camera. It can also be difficult for photographers who do not have much computer experience to get used to the technological aspects of digital cameras.

    Discover more of the benefits of film cameras from the experts here at Camera Land in NYC. Give us a call at (646) 789-4830 to learn about our film camera options and find the camera and accessories that are right for your photography skills and ambitions.

    Tips for Taking Striking Weather Photos

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Weather is one of nature’s most beautiful gifts, providing the perfect subject for photographers of all styles and preferences. If you are interested in taking striking weather photos, visit Camera Land to stock up on the right supplies. Follow these tips to capture the best photos and improve your skills.

    Get the Right Equipment
    Your photos will not turn out the way you want without the proper equipment. Any camera can take a picture of a beautiful weather phenomenon, but not every camera can create a beautiful impression of this event. Having the right equipment makes a huge difference when it comes to the final result. Visit a camera store to look at high quality options from reputable brands. Look for cameras with versatile functions that will allow you to capture different types of weather occurrences throughout the year.

    Choose the Best Filters
    Filters can enhance the most striking elements of weather photos to create the most beautiful and memorable images. That is why it is important to know which filters to keep on hand when photographing different types of weather. Polarizing filters are great for weather photographers as they can create more contrast between the background of the sky and whatever element creates the focal point of the picture. Graduated neutral-density filters can also be useful for creating contrast and getting the perfect photo.  

    Invest in a Tripod
    Nothing is better than being able to pick up your camera that is hanging around your neck and using it to snap a once-in-a-lifetime photo. But this technique is not always the best option for weather photography. Investing in a tripod will allow you to capture more details and more weather phenomena, resulting in a more diverse collection of pictures to use professionally or share with loved ones.

    Get everything you need to capture striking weather photos here at Camera Land in NYC. Contact us at (646) 789-4830 for information about our selection of cameras and equipment, including selections from Nikon and other beloved brands.
