Portrait Photography Tips

Peter Hurley is a famous portrait and headshot photographer. He has been splashing around the world of close up photography for more than a decade. Headshot photograph is a photo which is taken with the head and a small part of the shoulder as the focus of the photo. In this opportunity, Peter will share some secrets on what he usually does to make his clients look more photogenic in front of camera. According to him, one of the easiest ways to make any of his client look cooler is by highlighting their chin line.

The secret of his style of taking a photograph is actually very simple. The key point is not to let the chin and the neck slur with each other without any clear line between them. Apparent chin line will make your face appear haggard and it will look more attractive. It is a very simple attempt; you just need to point your face forward a bit. But if you shoot from the side, you can slightly lower down one of your shoulders (that faces the camera) then direct your face to the front and put it little bit sideway. If the left shoulder is the one being lowered, you need to put your face aslant to the right and vice versa. Read the rest of this entry »

Understanding the Zoom Values

Understanding the Zoom Values

This may be one of the frequently asked questions among photography enthusiasts. A more specific question would be one such as: “With a 70-200 mm, what’s the maximum distance can an object be from the lens?” This is a common question, and it must be clarified that lenses doesn’t have a maximum limit of distance. The limit is infinity. A more accurate question to ask would be: “What’s the maximum magnification level a 70-200 lens can achieve?” or maybe “What’s the magnification level does a 200mm lens have compared to normal eye sight?Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t Hesitate to Use High ISO When Photographing

Posted by oneslidephotogaraphy On April - 5 - 2017

Use High ISO when Photographing

Use High ISO when Photographing



We often use high ISO (above 800) when faced with these situations: in low lighting, when we need a high shutter speed, when we don’t want to use the flash, and when we didn’t bring a tripod to a photoshoot. The biggest concern we have when increasing ISO to more than 800 is the visibility of noise in the results; tiny spots scattering through out the photograph.
But you can now rest easy, because now that concern continues to be minimized with the advancement of time and technology.

Here are a few reasons to be more confident when using those high ISO settings:

1. The advancement of the Camera Technology.
The majority of new generation SLRs are equipped with a very reliable noise reduction technology. We can now shoot at an ISO of 1800 and still get a satisfactory result. As far as I know, almost every DSLRs available from Nikon or Canon, from the beginner cameras to the pro cameras, are great at getting rid of noise due to high ISO. Now, even high quality compact cameras like the Panasonic LX3 (or the latest LX5) is equipped with this noise reduction technology as well. Read the rest of this entry »
