Photography is the camera

By Henry James

With a focal length of between 60 mm and 300 mm, this is also a perfect
lens for the sport enthusiast. The telephoto lens allows you to capture
the far away object and can also be used for landscape images

Even if you do not plan to go digital right this moment, it is important that
the photography business plan include plans for future growth and
expansion, and this will most likely involve at least some digital

Seeing the sun rise up out of the oceanfront may be absolutely
astonishing to someone who has never been to the beach. It¡¯s all relative.

The backbone of photography is the camera, the instrument or device
that works on the principle of optics. The camera and photographic
techniques have undergone phenomenal changes since the time the first
camera was made.

There are different ways of finding photography jobs, depending on the
type of job you are looking for and your experience. You can begin by
creating a resume and portfolio of your work.

Use of depth of field wisely

There is a certain way that experienced photographers take such
stunning pictures, portraits and photographs where the subject being
shot is focused in a clear and perfect manner while the background is sort
of a blur.

The following are the steps to take those amazing picture-perfect shots.

The technical

First things first, it is best that the camera being used has a plate for
imaging that is large. Also, a lens that is considered fast should also be
used. ¡°Fast¡± in photography language means a lens that has an aperture
that is larger than f2.8.

When the aperture of a camera is large, the image or picture that will be
produced has a depth of field that is shallow. In photography language,
this basically means that the area that is behind as well as front of the
subject being taken is a blur.

As much as possible, the shoulder and the head of the subject should fill
the whole frame. Also, if the subject is a person, don't forget to focus on
the subject's eyes.

The technique

Practice really does make perfect. There is no such thing as a perfect job
done only once. It takes perseverance as well as patience. When
shooting pictures, try to take a series of shots using a lens that has a wide
opening and a stop on at least one or two.

Focus on various areas such as the ear, nose, hair using varying apertures
for such. When the pictures come out, you then have many different
options to choose from.

To be able to create a depth of field that is shallow, the best thing you
should do is use a long lens ¨C preferably a telephoto ¨C and have it set on
the zoom that at its maximum. Then, try to stand as close to the subject
as possible.

However, for subjects that are in motion, for example a car. The camera
must then be moved the same way the subject is moving. Or simply put,
the subject must be followed. The best film to be used for such a shot
are ISO 400 films. Also, don't forget to set the camera at an ISO setting
that is similarly fast.

History became more authentic with pictures, and photographs served as
evidence in many cases. People made their family tree in their albums.
Suddenly life was so much more fun and meaningful.

You will also want to check any and all requirements to the contest and
make sure you qualify. You will then want to check for any fine print and
be sure you agree with the terms.

A macro lens will also allow you to take unique abstract images. By using a
wide aperture with a macro lens on natural shapes can create the perfect
abstract image.

Aside from the prizes, winning a contest may be your opportunity to
showcase your photography skills in a national magazine. It's easy to see
why someone would want to enter a contest.

You don't want to set your goals so high that you get let down but
there is nothing wrong with going for what you want. Most importantly,
get as involved with what you love as possible. Learn as much as you can
about photography and what makes good photography. Subscribe to
magazines, read books, look at winners of photography contests.

The body of the camera, especially when taking such moving picture
shots, must be steady. Make sure to focus on the subject as you see it
through the lens of the viewfinder. Using such a technique ensures that
the subject being focused on is clear and crisp while the background is a
beautiful blur. Such a picture helps highlight the movement being done by
the subject therefore making it seemingly jump from the picture.

Photo effects

Believe it or not, there is also an easy and stress free way to create a
similar photo effect without doing the techniques mentioned. This has
become possible through the magic of software. Photoshop has a ¡°blur¡±
function, which blurs the picture¡¯s background in a uniform manner
independently as well as authentically the way an actual photograph may
be done by a technically-savvy photographer. The software blur is and
looks artificial while the real blur is more organic in feel.

Fortunately or unfortunately, the technology of software is advancing so
that there is a CS2 version of Photoshop that enables anyone to create a
blur that is considered as ¡°smart.¡± This function takes into consideration
the picture's depth of field. This basically means that the function applies
a lot of blurring effects to the pixels that appears more distant and applies
a lot less blurring to the pixels that appear nearer. Believe it or not, such a
function is adjustable that anyone could achieve any effect desired.

All in all, depth of field is a fairly easy concept to understand especially to
those serious in learning the art and craft of photography. All it takes is a
lot of patience, perseverance and a heart that is willing to learn as well as
a mind that is open to making mistakes and gradually correcting them
along the way towards creating a picture perfect shot.

There are different ways of finding photography jobs, depending on the
type of job you are looking for and your experience. You can begin by
creating a resume and portfolio of your work.

You can also purchase underwater cameras for more of a price but they
last whenever you need one. Some people find this more economical
than disposables, especially if they want to take these pictures often. You
will want to be original and if possible, catch a scene that has not been
done before. You really want to impress the judges with something you
do not normally see. More on Malaysia Photographer.

Practice makes perfect! If you believe this AT ALL, you can better
understand why digital photography can help you learn to do great
photography. Watch someone taking photographs with a medium format
camera. At $$ per pop, notice how careful they are as to what they
shoot, and how often.

Another consideration in selecting a professional photographer for your
wedding is what you get for your money. Most professional wedding
photographers offer package deals that include a set number of prints of
different shapes and sizes for one price.
