Can I fix the errors later?

As for the exhibition, no, you can’t. Overexposure is not allowed in digital photography. Even if you shoot in RAW, the capabilities of RAW converters (contrary to the assurances of the developers) are very limited in terms of pulling out the knocked-out lights. Underexposure is easier to fix, although the cost will be to increase the noise level in the shadows. The correct white balance setting is not critical when shooting in RAW – you can easily change the balance when converting. Correcting the wrong white balance in a JPEG file can be a very time-consuming, though feasible, task. However, I prefer to set the white balance as soon as possible, even when shooting in RAW. This allows me to more accurately assess the exposure on individual channels using a color histogram, and in addition, my images look more aesthetically pleasing even before converting to JPEG.

The next two photos are taken at 12-hour intervals: Continue reading

Area of interest

You must be deeply interested in the subject. Without this, your images will remain lifeless. If you, the photographer, are not interested in the subject, how can you hope that it will be at least somewhat interesting to the viewer? Passion begets passion. Your interest in the subject, your curiosity and passion are vividly reflected in your works and make the viewer empathize with your passion.

Imagine a person who is passionate about something. Anything, such as a historical reconstruction. Ask him to tell you something about his hobby, and it will be impossible to stop him. He will be able to talk for hours about the features of clothing, weapons, household items, about the intricacies of their manufacture, about the traditions and customs of the era that interests him.

Central and peripheral vision
Often, a scene that looks attractive to our eyes is completely unrepresentable in the photo – with a whitish, illuminated sky, with black holes in the place of shadows, with…
