When I read photographers’ success stories, I often ask myself, are there certain traits that make certain photographers successful? After some pondering this past week, I’ve concluded that there are three main traits that determine the success of a photographer:

The first trait is courage
Courage is very important and distinguishes the work among the mediocre. Courage doesn’t only mean being daring enough to photograph in conflict/war-ridden areas, protests, and life-threatening places. Courage also applies to many other aspects.
For instance, the courage to photograph from close range is also important. Robert Capa, a war photojournalist has been quoted as saying if your photographs aren’t good enough, then you’re not close enough. There are, for instance, many novice photographers that doesn’t have the courage to come into close contacts with their subjects (especially when photographing people) and only photograph with telephoto zoom lens from a distance.

Practical Tips on Architectural Photography

Architectural Photography

Architectural Photography

Architectural photography can be easy yet difficult. It is easy because the objects are not moving. And it is difficult because of the lighting on the object can be very dependent on the weather which is very unpredictable. Apart from that, the challenge lies on how we find good position and right angle so that the building looks more interesting and majestic. There are some tips and tricks on architectural photography from how to get good lighting, lens choices until how to get good angle while shooting:

1. Wake up early
To shoot architecture objects, you need more than a day, because it will be hugely dependent on the weather. Good architectural photo will be obtained when the sunlight drops exactly on the building with the support of clear blue sky in the morning or afternoon. It gets fierce during the day and when it gets windy. Apart from that, the perfect time to shoot is the “blue hour” where the sky looks blue before it gets dark (evening).

2. Use wide lens
It is very hugely needed in order to capture the building as a whole. When we use standard lens/kit, we cannot get the image of the whole building (it gets cut). The recommended wide lens ranges from 12 to 18 mm. if you use a camera with fixed lens which is not so wide or if you use Smartphone, you can apply the panorama feature. If you do not have it, you can go forward or backward so that the image of the whole building can be taken. Read the rest of this entry »

Fact about DSLR Shutter Count

Fact about DSLR Shutter Count - Nikon Shutter Unit

Questions concerning Shutter Counts often arise in forum conversations or discussions among beginner photographers. DSLRs, which eliminate the need for film rolls, are often deemed limitless in its usage. Photograph at will, examine results, and if not satisfactory, a simple push of the delete.
Without even a thought, the user may have photographed thousands of times in mere moments. This may be okay if the user is still at the initial learning stage, but should not be done continuously. This is because the DSLR has a shutter count limit that will have an impact on the expiration of the DSLR unit.
As stated in the title, the DSLR camera’s shutter is still the same as that on analog SLR cameras. Though controlled electronically, the DSLR’s still has a mechanical shutter that opens and closes with each photograph taken.

This shutter movement is what causes the distinctive shutter sound a DSLR camera emits when photographing. Many do not know that if used continuously, it will sooner or later reach its expiration date of usability (jammed or malfunctions). Users commonly get trigger-happy when they first purchase a DSLR camera and are then surprised when they discover that their shutter count has a limit. They may then regret the useless photographs they’ve squandered in the past. Read the rest of this entry »
