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 »

The term, fisheye, first mentioned in 1906 by a physician and inventor called Robert W. Wood based on the point of view of a fish inside the water.

The angle from fisheye lens is commonly around 100 to 180 degree while the focal length depends of the film format or camera sensor being used.

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 »
