Basic FAQ for Amateur Photographers



1.With a limited budget, what camera should I buy?
If you’re working with a budget of under $500, buy a pocket (point-and-shoot) camera that has Manual Settings feature. This feature will help acquaint you with Speed and Aperture.
Be confident in buying a pocket camera; because the price tag of the camera doesn’t accommodate best shooting angles. The camera also can’t show you which composition is best or give you ideas of what to shoot even if it costs $3000. The quality of the end-product is determined by the photographer.

Your Nikon D90 digital camera offers professional-quality features like 11-point autofocus, Live View, and the ability to shoot HD video. The first DSLR capable of shooting HD movies (720p at 24fps), the D90 was Nikon’s core enthusiast-level offering until the arrival of the D7000.

Use High ISO when Photographing

Use High ISO when Photographing



We often use high ISO (above 800) when faced with these situations: in low lighting, when we need a high shutter speed, when we don’t want to use the flash, and when we didn’t bring a tripod to a photoshoot.

The majority of new generation SLRs are equipped with a very reliable noise reduction technology. We can now shoot at an ISO of 1800 and still get a satisfactory result. As far as I know, almost every DSLRs available from Nikon or Canon, from the beginner cameras to the pro cameras, are great at getting rid of noise due to high ISO. Now, even high quality compact cameras like the Panasonic LX3 (or the latest LX5) is equipped with this noise reduction technology as well. Read the rest of this entry »
