Don't forget the polarizer
If you are forced to photograph landscapes or architecture in the middle of the day, a polarizing filter can help you. The polarizer makes the sky darker, eliminates sun glare…

When all else fails

Are you still unhappy with the sharpness of your images? Isn’t it too much you want?

A digital camera is basically not capable of providing absolute sharpness. Most photo sensors are equipped with a special anti-aliasing filter that slightly blurs the image so that any point of the original scene in all cases is perceived by more than one photodiode. This is called antialiasing (antialiasing) or smoothing and is necessary to prevent moiré-striped artifacts that can occur when photographing fabrics and other items that have a periodic, repetitive structure.

Shutter speed or, as it is also called, shutter speed is directly related to the transmission of motion in images. When shooting still subjects with a fixed camera, the shutter speed does not matter and is determined only by the required exposure. But when either the camera or the subject is in motion, choosing the appropriate shutter speed becomes not only a technical but also an artistic task.

Not to get confused: the higher the shutter speed, the shorter the exposure time than a shutter speed lower the shutter speed longer. Continue reading

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
