Great Gift Ideas For Camera Lovers

Finding cool gifts for the camera bug in your life might seem like an impossible task when you are trying to surprise and impress them. But, actually, finding affordable gifts for your photographer is easy to find online or in a physical store with a little specific searching. Please see the ideas below: One popular gift for a photographer is a monopod, a one-legged support for a camera. When you mount a camera on a monopod, you are lowering the center of gravity and that helps make better photos. A camera on a monopod will also help them take better photos at slower shutter speeds or with longer focal length lenses. A monopod cannot support a camera by itself, the photographer still has to hold onto the camera or monopod, but it’s still more steady than straight up holding a camera and trying to get good shots in low light without blur. Monopods are lighter and easier to carry than tripods. One amazingly useful gift if they are taking photos with their iPhone is the Power Purse, a wallet with a bui...

 


How To Take Better Pictures of Your Children

Children can be a fun, yet challenging, subject to photograph. Every child reacts differently to the camera. Some love it and ham it up at every opportunity, while others want to run away and forget they ever saw it. Here are some ideas to help your kid shoot go as smoothly and as quickly as possible. Relax. It’s easy to get nervous before photographing children because they can be unpredictable. If you’re anxious, the child will pick up on it. Relax and let your happiness show through. That way both the parent and child will be calm around you, and you’ll all be pleased with the results. Even if the child misbehaves or cries, you can get some great photos if you’re paying attention. If you’re fun to be around, the child will be too. Be flexible. You may end up with a child who wants to do nothing more than play with his monster trucks. Go with it. Let him play and take action shots of him scooting across the floor saying, “Vroom!” Brush up on your repertoi...

 


Things to Remember When Taking Photos

It’s easy to point your camera at something that caught your eye and click the button. Yes, this makes it a photo, but is it any good? It’s not so easy to get a photo that grabs your eyes and makes you proud. So, what do you do if you are a newcomer to photography? Practice, of course, and keep these tips in mind. Choose an object you like, a simple household object... anything you might like in your house or something in your yard, like a flower, tree or a hanging birdhouse. Take several photos of your selected object. Ten photos shot from different angles would be a good set to start with. And come back to it at different times of the day because of the different lighting conditions. It doesn’t matter so much what you pick to photograph right now as it’s just practice. But do pay attention to what your results look like. You need to learn to see different shapes, colors, patterns and shadows. After a few weeks of working with different angles and colors, your perspective will...

 


Elevate Your Photography by Using Props

Props can make a photo pop, or they can distract viewers’ eyes from the person you’re photographing. Some photographers and clients love having them, while others want nothing to do with them. Should you use them in your photography business? That depends on where you are and what kind of photos you take. If you specialize in taking golden anniversary photos, props may not be necessary. If you do portraits, they would be a distraction. If you’re a children’s photographer, then props can help your shoot go smoothly and create those extra-cute photos the parents want. When you book the shoot, you might ask your clients whether they would like to use props. It may not have occurred to them, and asking ahead will give them time to think about it. It will also help them figure out what kinds of photographs they’re hoping to get out of the session. When photographing kids and props, ask parents to bring items that are meaningful to them. For example, a former rodeo queen mig...

 


Want to Take Better Photos? Try These Tips

Anyone can point their cell phone at something and take a picture. And even though it’s easy for you to take a picture, it might not capture the moment like you wish it would. In fact, your photo-taking ability may not be where you would like it to be at all. Not to worry though, you can improve your photography. Here is what I would recommend: Obtain a DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) camera Obtaining a DSLR is the first step any artist or hobbyist should follow if he really intends to improve his photography. Using the auto mode on the camera just doesn’t cut it. These types of cameras give any photographer more freedom than he could ask for. That’s because of the DSLR camera’s ability to control the lighting situation. Just real quickly: The photographer holding a DLSR camera will have the ability to control the three parts to the formula of an image: 1. Shutter speed, where you control the duration of how long you intend to let in light. 2. Aperture, where you control...

 


Cameras Are Great For Kids

Kids are naturals for cameras. They might be young and not very tall, but they are like sponges. You might not notice, but your youngsters are mentally photographing everything they see and also everything you do. Providing a simple camera for your child’s use will boost his creativity that could last a lifetime. So what can you do to keep your child interested in photo possibilities and not bury him in technical details that will overwhelm his curiosity and just smother him in things he doesn’t understand? A good choice would be to let your child use a simple camera to take photos of what interests him. You can make the best of your child’s interest by occasionally pointing out a special flower or a squirrel to photograph, for example. The emphasis there is “occasionally.” Let him see the world with a photographer’s eye. A good start when your child gets a camera is to begin taking photos of familiar subjects, like the family dog or cat. Photos of your immediate env...

 


The Best iPhone Camera Apps

The cameras you are used to using are on the way out and being replaced by Smartphone cameras. Today's Smartphones are convenient, can be easily carried in a pocket or purse and don't need a lot of fiddling with before you can take a shot. The IPhone made a big change by helping to kick off the Smartphone boom in 2007. Four years later, the IPhone released the IPhone 4S, one of the best IPhones on the market at the time, 2011. You can find a large number of iPhone camera apps on the Internet that will be handy if you like shooting photos and video with your phone. You can also combine photography and social networking or do some photo editing with your Smartphone camera. While all the new apps are coming and going on a daily business, a very quiet business, CameraGenius, has been in business for 5 years. Their $3 camera app has been appropriately updated, including version 4.3 in 2012. CameraGenius adds additional shooting options that are useful to most users, like a full-screen shutter button, time stamp...

 


Top 10 Tips For Photography Beginners

Not everyone wants to be a professional photographer, but surely everyone who takes photos wants them to look good. After all, photos keep our memories better than we can. So without making this complicated, here are some tips on how to make your snaps better. 1. When taking pictures of people, their heads should be in the top one third of the frame, not in the middle. 2. Look at the background before you take the picture. If your people are standing in front of something ugly or distracting, have them move over to a better spot. 3. Likewise, make sure everyone’s face is in the sun or light. Move them out of the dappled shade and take off hats with bills that cast shade on the face. It doesn’t work when one is in shade, another is in sun, and a third has both playing across her face. 4. Don’t take pictures of objects or people when you’re facing the sun. The front of the object or the faces will be in shadow. The best way to remember this is the people you’re going to ...
