Photographing a culture of intersecting the present with the past. Photography for me is not looking it's feeling of memories. Memory is essentially for the process of gathering information from our experiences like visual, hearing and storing. This information can be stored as a memory and later retrieving it when needed. Therefore it goes without saying that and improved memory leads to an improvement of life. Photography is a craft, a craft that can be learned only by hard work.
Your digital camera probably resembles a film camera in both appearance and basic functionality. Like a film camera, your digital camera has a lens with aperture and shutter controls that can be used to decide how much light penetrates into the body of the camera for each shot. But that’s where the similarities between film and digital cameras end. Despite the similarity in appearance of the hardware device used to make the exposures, digital photography is an entirely new medium compared to film photography.
Digital Photography Camera Modes allow photographers to control the parameters of an exposure, specifically, Shutter Speed, Aperture and ISO. While certain modes can fully automate the camera exposure, there are other modes that let the photographer manually control some or all parameters of the exposure.
In automatic modes the camera determines all aspects of exposure, choosing exposure parameters according to the application within the constraints of correct exposure, including exposure, aperture, focusing, light metering, white balance, and equivalent sensitivity. For example in portrait mode the camera would use a wider aperture to render the background out of focus, and would seek out and focus on a human face rather than other image content. In the same light conditions a smaller aperture would be used for a landscape, and recognition of faces would not be enabled for focusing.
In this mode you have full control over your camera and need to think about all settings including shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, flash etc. It gives you the flexibility to set your shots up as you wish. Of course you also need to have some idea of what you’re doing in manual mode so most digital camera owners that I have anything to do with tend to stick to one of the priority modes.
Manual mode is useful in home photo studios and for still life photography where you’ve arranged the lighting carefully and have time to take exposure measurements, either with the camera or using a separate hand-held light meter (which can yield more accurate results in some conditions). It’s also useful if you want to take a series of overlapping frames and stitch them together as a panorama. Here, it’s essential there are no exposure variations between the frames.
Are you ready to take a much closer look at what creating a great image is all about? It’s all about light! The ability to see, influence, modify, control, and create light will take your images from snapshots to great shots! Photography is “writing with light.” So, let’s build our conversation about Photography lighting on five fundamental characteristics of light: Direction, Intensity, Color, Contrast, and Hardness. Lighting Lessons are Everywhere After you’ve learned the five characteristics of light, begin to decode the light that you see around you and in the media. Here are some sources to look at: Magazine ads and Movies. In a photographic rendering, the absolute intensity of lighting is not usually the most important thing about the intensity. What matters is the contrast, or perceived relative intensity of lighting, compared to the darker areas of a photo.
MAKING THE PITCH
Let your images do the talking. There are n no.of photography and they are reaching at a peak nowadays. Some of them are food photography, street photography, travel photography, macro photography, film photography, pet photography, engagement photography, wedding photography, backyard bird photography etc. I would like to share my keen interest photography.
Engagement images can be fun and whimsical, intensely passionate and sexy, sentimental and romantic. For that matter, engagement images don’t even necessarily have to be for a couple’s engagement at all: Some couples, whether they are about to be married or have been married for years, might just want an excuse to have romantic pictures of themselves. Whatever motivates a couple to commission you to shoot engagement images, the session opens up a new market for your photographic talents and comes with all sorts of other benefits, too—from challenging your creative skills in new ways to getting to know your clients before the wedding shoot. For the couple, the engagement session is a special opportunity to pose in a stress-free environment of their choice, without the time constraints and pressures of the wedding day.
First, the wedding photography industry was at a critical overflow, and the abundance of nonprofessional photographers affected the quality of the photographs. The final products newlyweds were receiving were of rather poor quality. The result was mistrust of photography as a profession. All these negative factors altered the concept of the wedding photo. The wedding photo, as it was originally intended to be - a documentary, and the bearer of precious memories - practically ceased to exist. The various processing techniques became completely insipid; they were no longer emotional and spiritual. For most, these images brought to mind callous advertising pieces – and unfortunately not of the best quality.
"You are getting married, and you have a lot to think about. There’s the dress, the venue, the guests—and the photographer. You will need to find a talented artist to capture your emotions and document every detail of your perfect day." The biggest day of your life is about to arrive. Visualize the perfect flowers, a long, flowing dress and your prince charming waiting for the entrance of his beautiful, radiant bride. This is something you have most likely dreamt about since you were a little girl.
A traditional photographer creates a classic style of portraiture, one that is formal and posed. Over the years, certain guidelines have been established by top award-winning photographers working with this style. Now, younger generations of photographers use these “tried and true” techniques to produce images that appeal to a wide variety of clients."
The photojournalistic movement in wedding photography is rooted in the documentary style of newspaper and media photojournalism. A photojournalist captures an event as it unfolds, rather then posing or staging the subjects.
Many photographers encourage couples to stand in a specific spot or to kiss, but then let their natural emotions flow into the photograph, blending photojournalism and traditional photography together for an appealing look. Shooting wedding photography is a not only the process of taking the photos, which occupies only 5-10 per cent of the total time a photographer spends on his work. Final selection of photos, and creating the wedding book and CD can also consume a lot of time.
Finally, The happier and more positive you are, the better the photos will be.
