Mastering the Focus in Night Photography

Posted on November 23, 2016 By

Most photographers will agree that when shooting at night, there are multiple factors that can limit the performance of your camera, and as a result, your photograph can turn out far from perfect. The low level of light tends to result in unwanted blur, so Clifton Cameras has come up with some top tips on how to eliminate the blur and enjoy perfect photos.

Compensating for Longer Exposures

The light limitation in night photography means that you need to adjust your camera settings in order to get the most out of your shot. The exposure time must adjust for enough light to enter the image. Dependant on your camera, the best settings will vary. With a manual shooting mode, it is up to the photographer to test a few until they find the best, unlike a semi-automatic or automatic shooting mode which does the work for you. Either way, this will affect your shutter speed, decreasing it significantly.

The slow speed means that you will need to compensate for the slightest camera movement, even motions as small as a hand shake or mirror vibration. You can use a tripod to steady

Methods for Growing Your Business

Posted on August 20, 2016 By

There are many different ways in which to grow your business and one of those is to talk to your employees about receiving more education such as can be done at VU Online. If you are large enough, you may even agree to pay for a certain portion so you can have professionals in different areas of business in your company all with master’s degrees in their special field of expertise.

If you have a website, it would be an excellent idea to have a thank you page for all your customers and allow them to give you compliments, so others can see the wonderful business you are doing and how appreciative your customers are with your customer service and your products.

Compact Vs Digital SLR Cameras

Posted on May 29, 2016 By

Compact Vs Digital SLR CamerasThe first big decision you will make when getting started with photography is what camera to choose. Choosing between a compact point and shoot or a digital SLR camera will be the ultimate choice. This is not only for financial reasons, but also it will determine what kind of shots you will be able to capture.

Compact vs digital SLR cameras vary in many ways and I am hoping to shed some light on what the main differences are other than the obvious size difference. The first major difference and also the most noticeable is the lens, an SLR camera has interchangeable lenses and a compact camera uses a fixed lens. Yes, many high end compact cameras use lens adapters however the original lens remains fixed and stays the same. Many compact vs digital SLR cameras will compete for lens quality and functionality with the SLR will usually winning that battle. Although cumbersome at times they allow you to take telephoto, fisheye, and ultra wide angle photos to name a few. A compact can achieve these as

How To Take Great Digital Pictures In Four Easy Steps

Posted on April 29, 2016 By

Great Digital PicturesIf the integration of cameras into cell phones is any indication, then virtually everyone is interested in taking great digital pictures these days. But as most of us have probably discovered, having the right equipment doesn’t guarantee that your digital photographs will turn out well. Why is that? Well, it’s because the photographer matters much more than the camera! The next time you want to snap a pic, follow these four easy steps and you’ll quickly go from taking good digital pictures to great ones:

1. Hold your camera properly – We’ve all screwed this one up at some point and gotten our finger in the way or had a picture turn out blurry because our hands were shaky. Thankfully, it’s easy to avoid these problems if you hold your camera properly. The recommended technique is two-handed, where your right hand grips the right side of the camera and your left hand supports the weight of it under either the body or the lens, depending upon your camera type. You also want to hold the camera as close to your body as possible and, if you’re really


Camera Angles Point Of View And Perception

Posted on April 29, 2016 By

Camera AnglesWhere Should You Stand In Relation To Your Subject?

Where you and your camera are relative to the location of your subject is perhaps the most important factor in how your photographs turn out. Placement sets your point of view and dictates what kinds of camera angles will work best for your shot. Despite this, placement is overlooked a lot more often than you might think.

Using Camera Angles

When viewers see a photo, they draw a lot of visual cues from your image depending on the angle you’ve taken the shot from. For instance, shooting from a low angle with a wide angle digital camera gives a sense of size, with the viewer often feeling small in comparison to the subject. The reverse is often true of subjects photographed from a higher angle – and the angle you choose largely shapes viewers’ perceptions of your work.

Try Different Camera Angles

Try shooting a subject from several different camera angles to see what kind of effect each creates. You can try getting low to the ground and looking at your subject from the point


The Pioneer Of Photography

Posted on April 29, 2016 By

The Pioneer Of PhotographyThe history of the camera goes much further back than the introduction of photography. The photographic camera progressed from the camera obscura and continued to change through many years of photographic technology. It was the ancient Chinese and Greeks who developed the device called the camera obscura. The earliest camera were room sized that could only hold one person inside. These gradually evolved into more compact models suitable for photography.George Eastman, the pioneer of photographic filmstarted manufacturing paper film in 1885.

His first camera was called ‘Kodak’ which a box camera with a fixed-focus lens and single shutter speed and loaded with film. The camera appealed to the average consumer because it was low priced.1900s saw the introduction of the snapshot concept. Eastman has taken mass photography one step further with the introduction of a simple and inexpensive box camera called Brownie whose various models remained on sale till the 1960s.sAlthough the cameras made by Eastman were low in cost, high quality prints were still offered and remained popular till the 20th century when electronic photography replaced them.

Add Life To Your Work With High Resolution Images And Footage

Posted on April 29, 2016 By

High Resolution ImagesHumans do work for their economical, social and culture uplift. Office work is among the top in every type of work. Office work needs both- strong efforts to finish it properly and powerful presentation after its completion. In other words, it is the presentation that makes your work more valuable. So, we need to add color and pleasure to make our presentation lively. With high resolution images and high resolution footage, we can do it with ease. Let’s discuss that.

Anywhere in the world, one characteristic of office staff is common-they put lots of efforts in finishing their work or project. We have to meet deadline in finishing multiple projects or work. In meeting that deadline, sometimes, we may not give that much importance to its presentation as it is the last thing we do relate to our work. No matter, how important our work is, after its completion, it is necessary to present it in such a manner that it looks more valuable or important. That’s why presentation of any work or project plays a vital role after its successful completion.

What Is Digital Photography

Posted on March 29, 2016 By

What Is Digital PhotographyYou may have the question in your mind when it comes to digital photography.. ‘What is digital photography?’  Digital photography is replacing the well known film photography.  First you need to know what the basic principles are of photography.

The basic principles of photography

Light makes it possible for a camera to see an object.  This light is reflected into the lens of the camera, the lens is used to guide the light onto the photo plane which records the photograph.

Digital photography uses an array of light sensitive sensors to capture images.  This is different from film photography.  In film photography, light sensitive photographic film is exposed and a chemical processing method is used to develop the photographs.

Another difference is that the image sensors differ in their amount of pixels.  Because an image sensor contains millions of individual pixels, the term used to indicate the resolution is ‘megapixel’.  The higher the megapixels, the better camera you have.  A higher resolution means that you will get a better quality photograph and this is very important


Understanding Camera Lens Filters In Simplicity

Posted on March 29, 2016 By

Understanding Camera Lens Filters In SimplicityThere are a lot of different filters available for your camera. As such, it is a good idea to have an understanding of camera filters. While there are some options that can be incredibly helpful, others may not be so much.

The most important benefit isn’t image quality.

UV filters are a great asset to have; not so much because they enrich the image you are taking, but because they are cheap. Why should you care if the filter is cheap? Because your lens isn’t! If you’ve been shopping for lenses, you may have discovered that some of the upper end ones are more expensive than the camera that you could be using. Suppose something scratches the glass? Even if the lens is an inexpensive one, would you rather that the scratched glass belongs to the lens or to a five dollar filter?

Capturing motion can be very bright.

Neutral density filters serve the sole purpose of reducing the amount of light entering the lens. The functionality added by such a filter would basically be to capture motion in daylight. In


Wedding Photography Guide For Beginners

Posted on March 29, 2016 By

Wedding Photography Guide For BeginnersIn this wedding photography guide for beginners, I’ll offer tips and suggestions for the new photographer. Whether your a pro thinking of adding weddings to your list of services, or a newbie, photographing a wedding for a friend, keep these following tips in mind.

Wedding Photography GuideTip #1 Prepare the Client

Being able to capture great wedding images requires a partnership between the photographer and his or her client. Your bride and groom should be made aware of what you need in order to produce these great images. Mainly time and their cooperation to adhere to a schedule. Talk to your couple and explain how long you need for the formal photographs. Ask them to inform their wedding party and family of when and where they are needed for photos. I’ll go over this with my couple in our first meeting and in the pre-wedding consultation about two weeks before the wedding.

5 Tips To Better Photography

Posted on March 29, 2016 By

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


How To Create An HDR Photograph

Posted on February 29, 2016 By

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 but at different shutter speeds thus giving you a dark,

How To Photograph A Wedding Reception

Posted on February 29, 2016 By

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


Sell Your Photos Online

Posted on February 29, 2016 By

Sell Your Photos OnlineWe must thank the advent of the internet – through this we can sell our photos online. In this digital age, we can make our own store online or sell our photos to photo online stores out there.

Before, we are having problem with where to sell our photos due to so much competition. Another problem is that, renting a commercial space is really expensive. Plus if you add the expenses in business permits, travels, maintenance and what not, income is really hard to get. Business is really hard specially if you are still starting. It is most likely also that your business will go into bankruptcy if there are only few art collectors in your place who are willing to buy in your shop.

The good news is, you can sell your photos online! I’m really glad that today, we have the internet and it is easy to connect with so many people throughout the whole world. This gave us more opportunity to expand our business and gain more clients. It also gave room for amateur and intermediate photographers to sell their photos. That
