How to Hold The Dslr Camera Properly


In life, there are so many basic and simple things that we do not know well because we think of those things too simple to learn. As the result, we got carried away and consider them as mere and unworthy stuff.

One of the most basic things that should be done well in photography is how to hold a camera properly especially when you work with DSLR camera which is known to be quite heavy. Shooting with DSLR camera is not as easy as using pocket camera or camera phone because while using it, you cannot use one hand only but both of them, one to press the shutter button and rotate the dial button on the camera body and another one to rotate zoom or focal lens.

With good holding technique, we can help to stabilize and reduce oscillation so the image resulted will come out sharp and clear. You may visit the following link to see and learn the tutorial on holding a DSLR camera properly here: Read the rest of this entry »

Yuri Arcurs – Shooting a Fighter Jet

Yuri Arcurs is one of the most sought after stock photographers in the world. There is a gripping story about him and his crazy idea on proving his ability to freeze a fighter jet that flies up to 750 km/ hour using flash lamp in super high power.

Yuri succeeded to prove that his idea is right and finally he could shoot that super fast jet. What he needed is a 3000W power flash lamp. Emitted from the ground, the heat of the flash could be felt by all the surrounding people in the shooting location.

Arcurs chose a medium format Hassleblad camera instead of DSLR because its flash sync is 1/800 second faster. Get curious? You can check out the video below: Read the rest of this entry »

In the previous post, we talk about auto focus, how it is used and what its strengths and its weaknesses. In this article, we would like to cover details on some of shooting conditions where the auto focus is not the good option and the manual focus is the one that should be chosen to get expected results.

1. Macro/Close Up
When you do macro/close up photography, the distance between the lens and the object can be very close and the depth of field can be very shallow for about few millimeters only. With such close object, the focus can be very difficult when you use auto focus. For instance, when you shoot insects and want to get the focus of their eyes and the auto focus is one in charge. You will find the focus that falls on the eyes is possibly not sharp. For such case, you will need the use of manual focus instead and move the ring by yourself to get the intended part.

2. Low light
This condition is pretty common where the auto focus will not work properly because the lack of light can make it very difficult for it to find the object unless you use AF-Assist which usually disturbs the object. For some kinds of lighting, your eyes can be better to find the object rather than the camera. When the LCD blinks a message “Subject is too dark”, actually, our eyes are still able to find the focus through viewfinder. So you may co-operate your eyes with the manual focus and you will get sharp image on the objects you want even in low light condition as well. Read the rest of this entry »
