Photography tips and tricks
I love taking pictures. And as you see around us, photography has never been more popular than it is now. Everyone has some kind of a camera; our phone cams can take pretty good pictures as well.
I like to go for walks around Boundary Bay. I have been doing this for years and the number of walkers with DLSRs around their necks has been growing steadily. People of all ages bring tripods and cameras with large lenses; looking for birds, sunsets or just an interesting detail of flower bush close to the ground.
But do you need an expensive camera to do interesting photography? I don’t believe so. There are so many ways to make your pictures stand out by using few tricks and know-hows.
Do you know what “light” photography is? Can you use the High Dynamic Range for your nature photos? How about putting “the invisible man” in your landscape photo? What about 3D images without any expensive software or hardware?
I found this amazing book written by Evan Sharboneau. He is really amazing! Looking at his images, you would think that you could never do anything that good. But he gives away all of his secrets in his book “Trick Photography and Special Effects”. Here just few things he will teach you to do:
How to use laser pens, flashlights, and other household items to get spectacular visual effects
- How to capture infra-red light with your DSLR to create impactful images with surreal color
- How to tweak the color settings in your camera to make things “pop” in just the right way
- How to capture amazing “star trail” long exposure shots
- Why your computer scanner is the key to some of the coolest, wackiest pictures you’ve ever seen
Have a look at his stuff, it’s truly amazing.
