Lighting in Production
Ever since you’ve added lights to your own scene, and adjusted their choices and controls, you press Make. Your first render is, from best, a rough draft of what you would like to develop into a qualified final product. Most of your time and effort in lighting is spent revising in addition to improving the setupthis is the location where the real work gets done. The art of...
Autofocus is standard, and quite a few current cameras employ a “wide area” or maybe “multipoint” autofocus
system that can set focus even over a subject that is not in the biggest market of the frame. This
useful feature helps you shoot quickly, without first centering the topic. It also encourages
better arrangement, with the subject placed off-center in more of one’s...
WHAT LIGHTING EQUIPMENT MUST NEED?
We expect you to be able to ask this question, so you’ll find a precise and definitive
response ready. We do not would like to leave out any details, therefore this
will be another two-part response:
1. No photographer has enough lighting equipment to perform
every assignment as well as you possibly can. No matter how much
lighting equipment you might have,...
How to develop a roll of film that spent decades on a mountaintop
Mt. Everest, June 8, 1924, 12:50 pm: George Mallory
(“because it is there”) and Andrew Irvine are spotted
800 vertical feet below the peak and “going strong for the top.”
Neither climber was ever seen again. Did they perish as they
continued their ascent or after having reached the summit,
29 years before the successful climb of Sir...
There are three different types of meter that are used in
interior photography: a light meter, a flash meter and a
colour meter. The first two are essential equipment and
sometimes come in combined form, while the latter is
optional, for critical work.
A light meter is necessary for measuring the ‘natural’
available light in an interior before any supplementary
Photographers are by necessity experimenters.
Although they are not thought of as scientists
operating in a research atmosphere,
they most certainly are experimenters: Every
time an exposure is made, and the negative is
processed, a genuine experiment has been
made. There is no way the photographer can
precisely predict the outcome of such an experiment
in advance of doing the work. The
objectives of the...
The big rage in digital lenses these days are the Vibration Reduction (VR) lens from Nikon and the Image Stabilization (IS) lens from Canon, which help you get sharper images while hand-holding your camera in low-light situations. Basically, they let you hand-hold in more low-light situations by stabilizing the movement of your lens when your shutter is open longer, and honestly, they work wonders for...
