Image Stabilization (or Vibration Reduction in Nikon) is a technology found on some DSLR Canon and Nikon lenses. Activate the image stabilization (IS) so that the photographer can produce sharp images in lightless conditions without using a tripod. In another words, you can use adequately slower shutter speed when the camera is on your hands without blurring the image.

Image Stabilization or Vibration Reduction
It functions to reduce vibration effects during the shoot and helps stabilize it so that the image will come out sharper. The IS or VR are claimed to be able to make images sharper even in a slow exposure condition for about 2 to 3 stop. Read the rest of this entry »

Horizon line in photography

The most common mistake made by beginners in photography on composition is the placement of horizon line which is not balance and other lines are inharmonic. Actually it is a very simple thing but if we pay more attention to it, it will give a great effect on the resulted picture.

Why does balance and straight line become so important?
Why is a balance horizon line important? Naturally, human eyes will prefer to see balance lines than the aslant or tilted ones. Just look at the pictures hanging on the walls in your living room, you must want the upper frame to be in align with the ceiling. You must also want you floor to look parallel and neat or your TV stands straight and not sideways, up or down. It is a very natural thing and when we see an image with unbalance horizon line, our eyes will naturally make an appraisal. Read the rest of this entry »

Extension Tube or Macro Photography

When we want to immortalize the close ups of very small and tiny subjects such as insects, flowers, coins and etc. commonly we need to use macro lens to perform it. This type of photography is called macro photography which is very interesting to be explored since there are so many beautiful yet tiny subjects around us. But this hobby is not cheap because you are required to purchase a macro lens with variety of focal length options. However, there is a cheaper alternative for you who got only limited budget. You may use some camera accessories such as close up lens, reversal lens, and extension tube. For this very opportunity, we would like to discuss about the advantages and disadvantages of using extension tube.

The advantages of extension tube
The name of extension tube itself is based on the use and the benefit of using this item. It is pretty clear that the function of this accessory is to increase the distance between the camera and the lens. The tube creates further forward gap between the lens and the camera. It gets the lens and the subject closer so that the lens is able to focus in a closer distance with the subject so we can get a greater magnification effect. Closer focus and also magnification is the mainstay feature of macro lens which we do not see in any other lenses. Extension tubes lack optical lenses or glass materials inside them, so they will not change the quality of the camera lens we use. Today, extension tube is offered in variety of focal length such as 12 mm, 25 mm, and 36 mm. Read the rest of this entry »
