Subject movement

No matter how stable your camera is, its stability is completely useless when shooting moving objects. Only a short shutter speed will help freeze the movement. This is why when shooting children, athletes, or even worse, children-athletes, as well as when photo hunting, you often have to shoot with the maximum open aperture and a high ISO value. A noisy but sharp shot is better than a clean but blurry one.

To reduce the impact of movement, use wired photography, and try to choose when the subject slows down or changes direction. Such moments not only provide a clearer image, but are often the most interesting and dramatic. Continue reading

A little theory

White balance is an important tool for managing the color palette of a photo. One of the advantages of a living person over a digital camera is that a person sees white objects white regardless of the color of the light source due to the inherent color constancy of human vision. Forming a visual image, our brain uses not only signals directly from the light-sensitive receptors of the eye, but also information about the type of light source, as well as our knowledge of what color an object should be. The digital camera is much more primitive, but it is helped by the ability to adjust the white balance. This is a parameter that allows you to change the color of your photos in accordance with changing lighting conditions. Continue reading

The purpose of color correction
Color correction is a purposeful change in the color components of an image to achieve a better result. In other words, it is a substitution of the original color, tone,…

Exposure: theory
Good exposure is critical for getting high-quality photos. However, the essence of the exhibition is very simple. Exposure is just the amount of light that hits the photo sensor. The…
