Incandescent lamps (Tungsten or Incandescent)

Very cold balance, designed to neutralize the orange light of incandescent lamps with a color temperature of about 3000 K. Images taken in the evening under artificial light, in the Tungsten mode, begin to look natural. If you use this mode during the day, the frame will turn an intense blue color. Try adding 1-2 steps of underexposure to this, and the scene will look like it was shot in the middle of the night.

Close up

A cloudy day is a good time for macro photography. This is an area where high contrast is rarely appropriate, while diffuse lighting makes the shooting process comfortable and controlled. It is worth mentioning that the color saturation large plans are generally superior deleted scenes, due to the decreasing role of atmospheric haze mutes the color, but also because of its abundance of colorful objects that we usually ignore because of their miniature size.

If the cloud weather can still impose some restrictions on landscape photography, then it can not interfere with the shooting of portraits in any way. Moreover, the soft diffused light is just perfect for quiet lyrical female portraits. This light masks skin defects, softens facial features, and provides smooth tonal gradients. Continue reading

The composition defines
Don't confuse composition with framing. Framing determines the direction of the view and the field of view, and composition determines the relative position of objects. By pointing the camera in…
