Just like many other things around us, there has been a considerable change in the world of photography too. The history of cameras that started with a simple pinhole camera has now changed into a great experience that is sophisticated and modernized. Digital photo cameras work automatically whether it is focus or the exposure.
With a help of a small geometrical shape, either a circle or a square, the photographer can focus on the subject of his digital photos. These shapes lie in the middle of the view finder. This function can be completed with just a slight pressure exerted on the shutter. The first touch will just with the two functions stated above, while for the second time it captures the subject.
- Improve the focus and exposure:
Before capturing the subject, it is very important to learn and then practice the accurate focus. Move the square or the circle, whatever is available in the viewfinder on the subject. Choose the best exposure to suit the surroundings. Gently push the shutter and keep pressed while you are sure about the focus. Once the focus and the exposure both are confirmed push the shutter release completely until the subject is captured.
- Select the best composition:
Give a second thought too regarding the composition of the picture once the focus and the exposure are adjusted and before you ultimately touch the shutter for capturing the shot. It is important that the subject must be fully included in the picture. It looks awkward to have a head cut from the top. Ignoring the adjustment of the subject in the digital photo can be a real crime.
- Choose the appropriate color balance:
There is an intelligent system built within the system of the Digital cameras that gives full authority to the photographer to decide the nature of light, extent of illumination and above all the balance of the color. It often happens that the colors that are naturally appealing don’t look balanced when captured from a lens. There is a wide difference of taking the shots indoors in the artificial light and outdoors in the natural light. In order to get the balanced colors the settings of the camera can be considered.
- Rely less on the flash:
The flash light is just a tool to help. It has nothing to do with the illuminating a huge space. In order to give proper illumination to the pictures the sensitivity level of the camera is increased mostly to 800 ASA. This high speed and sensitivity level can result in the most astounding results. There is a vast difference between the sensitivity of the camera and the shutter speed.
- Get a tripod to shoot from the distance
The use of room lens is highly effective. It is the zoom lens that can effectively capture the wide angle and the distant shots. Although the zoom lens is great, but above all the quality of the photographs is effected when there is a little bit of disturbance while taking the shot. A shaky hand can result in the blurred photographs. To avoid this expert photographers suggest that the tripod stand must be used to place the camera when capturing the subject at a distance. Tripod therefore, becomes a tool to create a perfect picture even when shot from a distance.
Digital photo is a great experience. To make it an outstanding experience with the best digital photos and cameras it is essential to learn the basics of photography and to follow the suggestions above.
