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.

Vivian Maier was a phenomenon and a story that tells us how an appreciation for art which come too late. She was an amateur photographer who worked every day as a nanny or a baby sitter. Vivian spent her free time taking images in the streets of big cities like New York and Chicago from 1950 to1970. The results were fantastic yet sadly those amazing photos remained unknown for they were private collection saved in a chest and most of them were not developed yet.

When she died in 2009, her 150.000 negatives were gone along with her house which was sold out. Unfortunately, in 2007, small parts of those thousand of negatives were unintentionally found by an art collector who could directly appreciate and recognize the greatness of Vivian photos.

Levitation is a currently trending style of photography, one of the pioneers being the Japanese photographer Natsumi Hayashi. The technique is really quite simple.
