So my previous article talks about all the things that can have a damaging effect to your camera. Among others, these are dust, seawater, and humid air. But besides all of that, do you know what entity can cause a much greater, no-mercy damage to camera? That wrathful entity would be an angry girlfriend.

This Hong Kong-based photographer has met this most unfortunate of fates. One day, he had a huge fight with his girlfriend (though the reason wasn’t clearly explained). In the heat of the fight, the angry girlfriend brutally destroyed his camera’s lenses. You would think that throwing them would be horrible enough, but this girlfriend went to the next level by using a screwdriver to bash into the front and back end of the lens glass. She really knew what she was doing and knows where to hit for that fatal blow. The lenses were then irreparable and useless. Read the rest of this entry »

Tips on Photographing Babies

The following are tips to produce great results when photographing babies:

1. Photographing babies cannot be done spontaneously and on a whim. Photographers and parents have to set aside enough time so the photograph session isn’t done in a rush. For photo shoots in a studio, for example, the babies should be given the time to familiarize with their new surroundings, their photographer, and the photograph situations in the photo shoot.

2. Photographing babies generally takes time, so a photo session should not be rushed or forced. One of the reasons being that babies tire and gets distracted easily. This is why there are points within the shoot when babies should be taken out of the set, carried around, and be fed to relieve the fatigue. Read the rest of this entry »

Blue Hour Photography

Immortalizing flickering lights at the dark night is one of the photography branches which are lot of fun. The notion for it is called “night shoot”. Those gleaming and sparkling lamps are captured by the camera and appear like colorful stars that warm and cheer the dark night. And it just simply becomes so beautiful.

However, there is a moment where those shining lights can look even more beautiful compared to the night time. The time when the sunlight is already disappeared but the sky is not completely dark. At that very moment, we can look up at the sky and find some dark blue hues on it. That is the exact moment which we call “blue hour” in the world of photography. Read the rest of this entry »

How to Get the Star Effect in Photography

Star Effect Photography

Star Effect Photography



Generally, when people choose a lens, they seldom consider the amount of blades in the lens’ aperture. But in fact, the amount of blades is very very important if your photography interests include photographing elements of light or the sun and love achieving that star effect.

The difference in aperture settings doesn’t only affect the Depth of Field (DOF) alone. In both of the photos below I used the Aperture Priority settings with 200 ISO.

By using a narrow aperture (f/10), the photograph requires more time to absorb light. This results in star-shaped light images in stationary light sources and the light tracks of the rotating Ferris wheel appear long (long exposure).

The use of a wide aperture setting (f/3.5) allows short exposure time, which produces spherical glow in the stationary light sources and short light tracks on the rotating Ferris wheel (freezing).

To achieve a crisp star-effect on your stationary light source when in low lighting conditions (like at night, for example), you’ll most likely need a tripod because the star effect relies on the narrow aperture settings. This means slower shutter speeds in low light conditions, which means a tripod is needed to keep the camera steady for longer periods of time.
