DSLR Tripod

DSLR Tripod

Tripod is an apparatus that should be considered important especially by beginners in photography. Most of them take too much importance on the great camera body and lens whereas the tripod role is actually very important especially for photographers who like to shoot landscapes. There are so many kinds of tripod but the most common one is tripod made of aluminum alloy or the combination of aluminum alloy and plastic. Apart from that there are tripods made of carbon fiber. What are the differences between them? Here is the explanation.

Aluminum of the same size is heavier than carbon fiber because it is more solid. The solidity of aluminum is 2.7 gram per cubic centimeter. So with the same weight, carbon fiber-made tripod is steadier. Unfortunately, not all parts of the tripod can be replaced by carbon fiber. We can save the weight of the tripod’s legs’ tube only when the other parts are made of metal aluminum, magnesium alloy or plastic. Read the rest of this entry »

Pocket Point-and-Shoot Cameras vs. Prosumer Cameras vs. DSLR cameras

Pocket Point-and-Shoot Cameras vs. Prosumer Cameras vs. DSLR cameras

There are perhaps still many of us that still don’t know the basic difference between the three types of cameras. But much of the masses usually choose the simple point-and-shoot pocket cameras over the rest, and it’s usually the right choice. Just point then shoot, it can’t get any simpler than that!

So when do you need a prosumer or a DSLR camera? Or you may also wonder: Is it better to purchase a DSLR or a prosumer camera? Or is a basic pocket camera enough?

The answer is really up to you. It all depends on your photography needs. But before you make your final decision on which to purchase, it’s best you know the basic difference between these three. The following are comparisons between the three; and I will discuss subjects surrounding the physical exteriors, features, sensors, lenses, and functionality. Read the rest of this entry »

Tips: Photographing Fish in Aquariums

Photographing Fish in Aquariums

Photographing Fish in Aquariums


Photographing a subject that’s inside an aquarium, such as fish, can be difficult. Limited lighting and the ever-moving fish are challenges you’d have to face when trying to photograph.

The following are a few tips for producing a successful photograph:

1. Determine the correct exposure and white balance
Our cameras usually choose an exposure that’s too bright or too dark when faced with this sort of circumstance because it’s affect by the color of the fish or the background. So it’s best if you use the Manual mode and manually set the exposure, or you can use the exposure compensation function (set to be under-exposed or over-exposed) if you use the P,A/Av, S/Tv Modes. To ease the process of setting the correct exposure when in Manual Mode, you can activate the Live View feature of your camera (if available). By using Live View, the results of the current aperture setting can immediately be viewed on the LCD screen.

When photographing aquariums, camera will produce a photograph that has too much of a blue tint. To get a neutral photograph, you’ll have to set the WB accordingly. You can lessen the effect of the blue tint by setting the WB at fluorescent or you can manually set the Kelvin value of your WB to your desired tone.

Aslant horizon line

Aslant horizon line

When we are in the same location or position and we would like to immortalize what we see on camera, sometimes, we unconsciously make several mistakes. Though they are not fatal, but the impacts on the photos we take will look less interesting. Even though we can later fix those errors using software editing like Photoshop, but isn’t it better to start avoiding those mistakes. Because there are times when we use software for editing, some objects that we like to highlight are disturbed. That is why we need to recognize then avoid several things that can make our images look less attractive here.

Aslant horizon line
This commonly happens when we take landscape image or scenery. Landscape image with the view of the aslant horizon line will make the people who see it feel that there is something odd about that image. Because the first thing they see is the photo’s position, whether it is upright (portrait) or fall down (landscape). When the position is known, people will start to pay attention to the details of the image that we make, except when we deliberately want to highlight the aslant horizon for a particular purpose.
