False Photography Myth

False Photography Myth

In the world of photography we find so many kinds of myth that influence our belief on some truths. Some of them are true but the rests are false. It is very important for us to analyze the information coming our way that are doing rounds in society. For common people, they believe those myths and they thrive with them. These are some false myths in photography which need to be kept straight:

1. You need to have an expensive camera and a set of expensive accessories
Expensive cameras as well as accessories are commonly high in quality especially to know that there are no cheap DSLR cameras around in the market. We often hear this kind of myth and sadly most of us believe it completely. We often consider the great works of professional are a given since they play with advanced and sophisticated instruments in their hands and you believe that is how they make great photos.

Advantages on Photo-Hunting Alone

Posted by oneslidephotogaraphy On June - 4 - 2020

Photo-Hunting Alone

Photo-Hunting Alone


Many of my friends are not comfortable traveling alone when they want to hunt for photos. Maybe they think they’ll feel lonely, unsafe, and not confident enough to carry around a camera on their own.

There are however a number of advantages to going at it alone. Some of these are:

FREE TO CHOOSE YOUR OWN AREAS AND SPOTS TO PHOTOGRAPH
It’s often difficult to reach to an agreement about the destination for photographing when you are with others. Even when you have reached an agreement, there’s still going to be one that gets disappointed. You’ll also lose precious photographing time in the decision-making process.

FREE TO CHOOSE THE TIME
Not everyone can go on a certain weekend (or on days that’s been agreed upon before), not everyone can spend the night, not everyone can take a day off, and other reasons that’ll hinder the photo hunt from every happening. Going by yourself means you can go whenever you want, whenever you think it’s best for you to go. Read the rest of this entry »

EDFAT Method in Photojournalism



There’s something called the EDFAT method in photojournalism to help create a good photo essay. Through this method, the photographer will proceed to find the right photo frame that’s creative and can collect a complete data to be displayed in the photo essay.

Facts and Myths about Camera Lenses

Facts and Myths Camera Lenses

Facts and Myths Camera Lenses



Myth: Anti-Shake means the photos will always be sharp.

Image stabilizer, Vibration Reduction, SteadyShot and other less known titles are just different tags manufacturers use for one similar system: Vibration reducer. This system reduces vibration caused by shaky hands, providing you with sharp images. This feature can be deemed a must-have if you’re planning to use a telephoto lens with your camera, because any little vibration to a telephoto lens has a multiple shake effect. And all vibration reducer systems in cameras of different manufacturers work equally well.

However, you need to note that this feature doesn’t reduce movement of an object. Therefore, even with the advanced technology of an anti-shake system, it still won’t guarantee a sharp result if the object being photographed is constantly moving. You will still have to learn how to maximize the use of this feature to get maximum results. Buying a more expensive lens or camera body doesn’t guarantee more success. Read the rest of this entry »
