Winter Photography

So, if​ you are thinking about becoming a​ photographer specializing in​ taking winter photographs then you need to​ understand some of​ the​ fundamentals .​
Although, the​ daylight hours in​ winter are short, it​ is​ fun working outdoors because of​ the​ variable weather patterns .​
Shorter days also mean that you can indulge in​ night photography, which is​ quite challenging .​
The best time for​ taking night photographs is​ always around 30 minutes after sunset because all though, it​ may be dark but there is​ usually a​ small amount of​ light in​ the​ sky .​
Let’s proceed to​ look at​ some of​ the​ components…

What To Look For In A Photography School

What To Look for​ In a​ Photography School
Unlike some school programs that are offered in​ all state universities and​ colleges, photography, as​ a​ full-pledged course, is​ not as​ common .​
In fact, only a​ handful of​ art schools have such a​ comprehensive program.
This can be both an​ advantage and​ a​ disadvantage for​ students who are interested in​ taking up photography as​ a​ course and​ not just as​ an​ elective in​ college .​
Finding the​ right school can be crucial and​ with only a​ few to​ choose from, it​ will either be easy or​ hard depending on your priorities and​ resources.
Having so few photography schools can be a​ disadvantage, as​ most will probably be offered in​ New York or​ in​ other key cities in​ the​ country .​
Finding a​ good photography school will then create a​ problem with students who live far away from major cities.
Spendings during school year should also be looked into as​ students will probably have to​ reside in​ dormitories .​

What Is Pp In Digital Photography

What is​ PP in​ Digital Photography?
Of course, we would like to​ say, that this is​ PP Group – a​ leading team in​ the​ photography branch, because this is​ our name! Because we are PP Group .​

Our research shows, that most of​ the​ people use this abbreviation - PP in​ digital photography conversations to​ say the​ word Photoshop shortly .​

What Digital Slr Photography Is All About

What Digital-SLR-Photography is​ All About
The cameras of​ the​ past did not have that much clarity or​ depth .​
Even with the​ development of​ the​ lens which allows the​ user to​ focus in​ on images, this did not yet make photographers completely satisfied after a​ take.
Fortunately, the​ digital age has brought about the​ creation of​ the​ SLR camera .​
This single reflex unit allows the​ user to​ produce quality images from pressing the​ button till it​ comes out when it​ has been developed.
The SLR is​ quite expensive .​
One unit costs about $5,000 and​ upgrading the​ lens to​ reach farther will be another expense .​
This is​ probably why many advise to​ have this insured in​ case this gets lost or​ damaged.
Here are some of​ the​ known brands of​ SLR camera’s worth checking out in​ the​ market.
1 .​
The first is​ the​ Nikon D2x digicam .​
Though its features are almost the​ same like others in​ the​ market, it​ comes with a​ GPS recorder so that the​ person can remember when and​ whe…

What Can Carl Jung Eastern Philosophy And Photography Teach Us About Creativity

Do you think that creative writing can be taught?

First, let me say that I have taken only one creative writing course in​ my life. and​ so, my experience is​ not extensive. But, having written for​ many years, I can tell you what I’ve observed.

Teachers can help you hone your craft. They can even teach you tricks to​ overcome obstacles to​ the​ creative flow. But I doubt they can teach you to​ be creative.

If I worked very hard with a​ good teacher, I might gain respectable proficiency at​ the​ piano. I might even learn musical theory and​ composition and​ pass every course with honors. and​ yet, I’ll never compose a​ piano sonata, which stirs us to​ the​ depths, without that amazing ingredient creativity. it​ can’t be taught.

Why not? Because creativity is​ a​ gift. it​ comes from within, and​ is​ personal to​ the​ individual. You either find it​ within yourself and​ work with it​ or​ you don’t. It’s much the​ same with writing or​ painting. Only a​ tiny handful will ever write a​ novel…

Videographers Could Learn A Thing From Photography

Wedding photographers and​ videographers are often the​ center of​ a​ love/hate relationship. Perhaps it's their shooting mentality, ego, or​ business interests. as​ a​ videographer I find this unfortunate because photography is​ a​ very powerful medium that can be used for​ video production. Some of​ my best work resulted from a​ combination of​ photographs and​ video. in​ fact, I don't even need to​ be a​ great photographer to​ still come up with a​ great edit. Let me explain ...

First of​ all, a​ great wedding video incorporates a​ compelling and​ entertaining story. After all, this is​ why they hired you. Pictures are a​ very powerful tool for​ a​ professionally edited video.

This past month, I filmed a​ bridal shower for​ a​ dear friend. Now I could’ve taken the​ easy way and​ layered down a​ track of​ music and​ some simple editing. No thanks. While I was shooting, I gathered as​ many of​ her closest friends/family as​ possible and​ sat them down for​ quick interviews. Thi…

Photographic filter is​ an​ attachment that will allow certain kinds of​ light to​ be able to​ pass through, and​ able to​ reduce or​ block out other unwanted light sources.In short, the​ term filter really means anything that modifies the​ incoming light in​ some way and​ includes: polarizing screens, multi-image prisms,close-up attachments, soft focus filters, neutral density (ND) filters, graduated ND filters, and​ color filters for​ black and​ white photography .​
Filters come in​ two main shapes: round and​ square.
Filters add color and​ a​ certain touch to​ a​ photo that complements the​ individuals style of​ photo taking .​

Understanding Photographic Terms

Understanding Photographic Terms
What the​ heck is​ an​ F Stop?
If you're new to​ the​ photography world, some of​ the​ terms can seem confusing .​
All this insider information is​ not as​ confusing as​ it​ first seems .​
You just need to​ learn a​ few of​ the​ basics, and​ you are on your way to​ taking better pictures.
Here is​ a​ brief explanation of​ some of​ those terms, and​ how they affect your photographs.
Ambient Light: the​ natural light that is​ in​ your scene .​
This is​ also sometimes referred to​ as​ available light .​

Aperture: the​ setting on your camera that controls the​ amount of​ light that enters through the​ lens and​ reaches your camera's sensor .​

Tips To Successful Amateur Photography

Tips To Successful Amateur Photography
Many of​ us think that high quality pictures are actually due to​ the​ use of​ expensive cameras .​

Below are few tips that will help you take phenomenal pictures, even with simple cameras.

Deciding whether you want a​ warmer effect for​ your picture or​ to​ produce a​ cool feel is​ a​ basic consideration .​
