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…

Good pictures in bad light
Regularly photographing in natural light, it is not difficult to notice that a really good light (not abundant, but good) is a frustratingly rare phenomenon. Let's be honest: beautiful lighting…

Except that she doesn’t press the button herself… Although work is already underway in this direction.

Often, the AUTO mode is supplemented with an almost identical “no flash” mode.

Listen to good advice: if you are still shooting in AUTO mode, try at least experimentally switching to program mode (P). Continue reading

How many colors are there?

We see the world in color, hence the special realism and appeal of color photography, especially since modern digital cameras that shoot in color by default make it extremely accessible. Color photography not only gives us the opportunity to more fully convey the richness of the world around us, but also imposes a greater responsibility on us, forcing us to think about the impact of color on our images.

How many colors are there?
Countless number. The human eye is able to perceive electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength from 380 (purple) to 740 nm (red). Continue reading

Dynamic range
Light falling on the photodiodes of the digital camera matrix is converted into an electrical signal. For this to happen, the number of photons that hit each individual photodiode must…

Sharpness
Is sharpness important for a good photo? Yes and no. On the one hand, a technically perfect photo should usually be definitely sharp. No matter how interesting it may be…
