Blue Hour Photography

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.

Spontaneous expression

Spontaneous expression

Shooting children can be a challenge somehow. They tend to get very difficult to manage and control and they usually feel scared and ashamed when they meet new people or strangers like photographer. The key success of taking good shots of children is to let them act spontaneously.

When we instruct them to act out certain poses, they tend to lose spontaneity and confidence. Let them act and express themselves spontaneously in front of camera. The easiest way is by asking them to play peek-a-boo, and if they are too old for this game, try to get them into conversation. Ask their names, their fathers’ and mothers’ names, their hobbies and etc, and let things flow naturally then take snap shots.

There are some tips and tricks on shooting children’s expressions spontaneously and naturally presented as follows: Read the rest of this entry »
