Flash and with flash photography.

Flash and with flash photography .

Flash is a key equipment to shoot one. Making it possible to shoot at wider. Currently we have invented various flash . Release thousands . To make the flash attached to the camera. Almost all brands . Makes users more convenient and easier to use . Camera user should have a basic knowledge of using flash to suit the situation . And in different lighting conditions . Correctly .

Using the flash to shoot below.

First . Enable shooting in the dark. Or in which the light is not enough to save the images as a dark room or at night. However, this must come to terms with a flash light to occur in the image. This may not be the same as we see at the moment.

. 2 for shooting outdoors in the sunlight behind . The resulting object silhouette . Also known as the backlight . We can turn on the flash. To remove the front of the sleek black finish . Make a beautiful picture. Beautiful details . Both front and rear. Or backlit scenes in the building. It can be used to flash the light in the dark.

Three . Using flash photography . Will be held on the subject in sharp images without blurring even when the subject is moving.


Imaging techniques with flash light.


Normal daytime light photography . Position of the sun is the opposite of male photography fit. When using a light meter measures the light that is stuck in the camera. Metering will mean . And the camera calculates the aperture narrow Since the exposure metering area sky. Which is very bright . When shooting at the camera . Individuals within the shadow image . In the background is the sky or the light fitting . The solution is to use the flash to shoot . How to take it, just adjust the shutter speed in relation to the flash. Adjust the sensitivity of the flash. View from a distance with the camera model . A few meters or a few feet away and adjust the aperture to match the distance . After shooting. This model will have no shadow. The images are beautiful.

Shooting with a flash of light (Bounce Flash).

Shooting with the flash firing straight . With objects or people. Image may be overexposed . Or light , solid feel unnatural. This problem may be reduced by wider light spread . Or a flash light . Or to find a piece of paper or a white handkerchief to block the light . Or to use a strobe to Bounce Flash ejecta material. Then reflected back to the model. Rather than leave the light hitting the model may be used directly by reflecting indoor wall or ceiling light scrub. However, there are precautions that should be selected to have an impact , otherwise white or neutral color of objects that reflect light to make the color distortion . Also, some of the flash is designed to turn up the tube to the left or right. Allows for smoother shooting under lighting . But must be opened wider than the camera shot using the flash direct 1-2 Stop by the reflective nature of the material .

10 How to shoot black and white. By digital cameras. To be effective.

Black and white photography is not difficult. Just as we know how they can make a good start for us to take photos to be in black and white to come out pretty easily. Preparing good visual perspective known as tone in photography . Known steps . Now you will have black and white photos to show off to all and sundry . Method is as follows.

1 . The shooting with RAW? A simple explanation is that the camera is detailed out completely uncompressed . Unlike JPEG files to reduce Profile lot. Simply by observing the raw file, the file will be bigger. If the camera is set to RAW the full capacity of the camera to do this just so simple .

2nd . What C-PL filters, ND and to put it – I put it to the ND will be referred by the time we shot the sky to the ground, the light is very different . So why is it that we shot blue ground floor fitted dark blue and white photos that I took to it again . To reduce its exposure to the fit. The sky and the ground, it is very simple. The polarization filters (Polarizer filter) or simply add them to the PL sky needle up . We took the time to make it to the black and white contrast, pretty much. Or use it to flutter around Ahwๆ waterfall photos as it would see the light with it’s dark then .

3. The ISO to the lowest low – low , because we need to take up the pro- gram the image to me. And we need to keep the camera does not take the best shot noise because the noise or grain in the film made ​​it more versatile than the PS . So do not forget to tell them to stand on the contrast.

ISO to the lowest setting .

Four . Careful when shooting a lot of different lighting conditions . We know each other well. This digital camera is a little white to white out the details . It is not good, we have to be careful if you try to shoot light . Using spot metering . Or only part of it. Here we just took the bright light from the dark tones and bright , it’s easy if taken positively adjust to it ? Or 1 stop or reverse it darker . We offset the negative half to 1 stop as well, but I try to look on the lcd screen to see the next time I practice several times and then offset it by me.

. 5 white balance settings were . If at first we do not have to fear me as a RAW image adjustments later in the program. If you shoot JPEG , set according to the instructions in your camera or memory . Outdoor photos Set to daylight so that it will affect our own tone, white balance not draw it.

White balance settings .

6th . Never shot with the camera in black and white mode . Do not do this . The color images taken with it so uncommon . Then we had to tune in to the next image . Important to remember that . We shot at a black and white image is a neutral gray . Notice this is not a black and white tones . Another time we were shooting , we also used another color .
Seven . Adjust the camera to the neutral mode . To the medium . Because we want to take a black and white tones from dark to light to make it possible. The best detail . Into the camera menu and adjust the individual . Start by turning off the system, Sharpening and reduce Noise in the first go and select the Colour Space is Adobe 1998 ( the side the color range ) and adjust the Saturation is medium but must avoid setting Contrast it . to force us to narrow tones ? This was a lot of tone .

8. Hue Histogram machine ? It was a photo finish Histogram be taken as RAW files or JPEG image , it tells us that the photos are too dark or too bright if it can only go left, it may be dark . If it pulled to the right, it may be bright . The best way to see it in the middle . And consistently , then you best. Has come full tone with it really need to see the picture you.

Preview Hispanic Nitro gram .

9th . Tried putting a filter on the camera – for a compact camera . Or RAW mode, the camera can not be adjusted to the unusual . For better tone . Black and white photos are beautiful and unique. And if we understand the fundamental tone , it further . I try to look at various photos .

6 reasons to buy “Digital Camera “

6 reasons to buy “Digital Camera ” .

First . Question the need for their own use .
I saw many people buying a digital camera is that it is expensive to buy it because they think it must be good . But from my experience, it does not actually go all I will give an example , a friend who bought an expensive digital camera, a horse . Costing several thousand baht Is a professional camera ever.

However, it appears that the time is not convenient to use . Because it is bulky . Time , it seemed to me to carry . The time taken to adjust it to a lower resolution . If taken at the highest resolution. The images are very large . It ‘s time to customize it or slow it it did not have much knowledge about photography . Modeled as an auto -only. This is called waste of money for nothing . I agree that what is most important . To know their own needs before the needs of digital camera to use to do anything.

– Use common .
The implementation in general photography . Take time to visit . General store , etc. This camera does not require a lot of special functions . 4 million pixel resolution, but it was enough .

– Used to make a website.
Images into the site. Usually, it does not want to enlarge your normal washing 4 million pixel redundancy but also be used to take very high quality . It wastes money then do so.

– Use of services by different picture reclaimed .
The photos in this manner. Of course, that would require a great little camera . Really should be a digital SLR with a compact digital camera that is not good enough , but of course people would want to hire someone who has hired more professional camera . Which should have a resolution of around 5-6 million pixel.

– Used in the publication . Or studio.
Of course, you have to buy a digital SLR camera to adjust to wash the lenses with flash or other accessories to indulge. Resolution, it should not be less than 5 million Pixel.

Two . Selected features of the camera.
You should know the properties of these cameras. Time to buy . In order to choose the right camera for your needs the most.

– Resolution.
Resolution of the image when it is pressed suit .
2 Megapixels 5 x 7 inch (photo size ) picture are made ​​.
3 Megapixels 8 x 10 inch photographic topic. Prints up to a medium.
From 4 Megapixels A4 paper to the print magazine to the high quality of work .

– The ability to zoom.
Typically , we see that the writing style is second to zoom Optical zoom and Digital zoom is to remember that by not having to do with the digital zoom to zoom This is an extension of the common image file . We can use the computer to do it later . But to do the Zoom lens Optical zoom is a true zoom , which of course is not much better.

– The Battery.
Of course, battery life is very important. If digital camera battery is no different from ordinary jewelry . Should consider what kind of battery it is strongly recommended to use rechargeable batteries . It will take longer than And do not waste money , too. Lifetime is important as well. Should see that the camera is charging when full. Can shoot a few pictures before the battery runs out. Normally it should not be less than 150-200 images at least.

– The ability to adjust the Manual.
Manual adjustment mode will allow you to . Some would have to adjust the width of the aperture, shutter speed , etc. If you do not know what these values ​​are . The ability to adjust the fit of this Manual , it is not necessary for you.

– Size, shape and weight.
You should consider the size , shape and weight of the camera that suits you , or that you like it. Which would have to consider yourself to me .

3. The budget to buy a camera .
Actually, in the beginning, I planned to take this as the first as well. Because it is probably the most important. For most people. So now you will probably know already . That the digital camera you should have it. Now, I try to see my budget . That you have the money to buy it. And where to buy the property and are on a budget can do. It is up to each one of my pockets .

Four . Preview images taken from the camera to buy .
This is not important . From my experience I can tell you that . The other camera brands . Prices are similar. The quality is not much different, but here, each brand will have its own identity . Some brands of the colors look natural. Some brands colorful . Some brands out soft colors . If asked which one is better . I can not answer . So do not listen to anyone say that brands do pretty well . Look with your own eyes is better than to be pleasant to you .

Five . Comparison price models that interest you.
When you go to buy a box version . I see several important things . Normally . Not necessary that you have to buy the big stores in the mall , or the need to buy . If the warranty because it was not already. So consider stores that sell cheap , reliable and convenient travel to ( near ) the time of the problem , it is better that I take a look at the importance of what they each have . Because some things may be for sale . I do not get some necessary equipment . Such as memory etc. selling should ask to make sure .

6. Guarantee.
This guarantee is very important because the photography equipment, electronic equipment , Nick had a chance to take it easy over the complex mechanisms that are not traditional. Therefore, we should consider as well. The warranty is 3 types .

– Warranty guaranteed by the product owner or agent has been appointed by the owners directly . Where this is not much to consider . Because they will have a repair center and spare parts service downtime anyway.

– This refers to insurance shop . We brought the camera and sold it. Not through distributors directly . Therefore cheaper. I do not have a set price , after-sales service . But Rhythm. In this, of course , if the shop would have to be responsible . Which would be very difficult to repair than zero. And in some cases may not have Boo . ( Boo -Chinese translations that do not ) , so it must consider the store to purchase them . Suggests that if the price is not much cheaper . I bought a warranty on console than

– A centralized insurance . By some of these comments . Imported for sale in the carrying out of international career when he did not have the camera directly . Certainly cheaper ( but I’m sure it’s not much ), but this time it is thought that they will carry your camera to take overseas to repair them.
