Tips for the creative photographer #2Iīm by no means saying I am any expert, but I hope some of this might prove beneficial.Tips for the creative photographer #22 years ago in Personal More Like This
Screw the rules
It is very good to know and be aware of composition, correct exposure, to compensate or not to, but it does sometimes mess with your own creative approach.
The camera and lens is plastic, metal and glass and just tools for you to use, they should be treated as such.
A good thing is to get that perfectly exposed and composed shot out of the way and then just flip to a new page.
Try for instance to take a picture of something with the sun behind it and completely blow the whites out leaving the subject correctly exposed without the use of a flash, it might just be the shot you choose instead of the "correct" one.
Absolutely no harm in using other tools than just the camera and a tripod, people have gotten cover shots of eagles diving in the water for food the photographer has brought and thrown there as bait.
Spray some water on a flower on a sunny day, who ha

Mix and match
If you have a couple of filter like a polarizing filter and perhaps an ND filter there is no rule that says you can mix and match the best from both worlds, you can use the polarizer to see through water, the nd filter to smooth out the sky and a regular shot for the rest of the landscape and combine the best from all worlds.
This does not just extend to filter use, as simple as doing a 30 second exposure of the sky at 1600 iso (to prevent star trailing) and a 2 minute exposure of the ground at iso 200 also works when it comes to mixing and matching, even part hdr.
It is all dependant on the scene you want to capture and your own creativity.
Most cameras has a multiexposure feature that enable the camera to process several image into 1, this is not the same as bracketing where you take several different value exposures and combine into one (hopefully) neat looking hdr image.
You can set up the camera to do 3 mu
A few simple photography tipsThought Id share a few simple yet effective photography tips for the creative photographer.A few simple photography tips2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Macro done easy
Set your lens to its closest focusing range and move physically towards the subject until it is sharp.
If you are using longer lenses it really helps to lay down and hold the camera and lens almost like you are shooting a gun, and remember your breathing when shooting.
This is also a great technique for bokeh shots, with a 50 mm at its closest focusing range and background further away you will blow the background to bits.
Donīt be stationary
It is very easy to put down a tripod and just stand on the same spot shooting, instead try moving around a bi, experiment with angles, left, right, high, low until you hit that perfect angle for the scene.
Slow the shutter
You donīt always need a ND filter to block out light to get even slower shutter speed, you can either use this technique with your hand or better with a cardboard (black if you got colored one).
Tips for the creative photographer #4On locationTips for the creative photographer #42 years ago in Personal More Like This
When on location, regardless if you are just shooting for fun or on an assignment, be prepared.
Especially on an assignment this is important, those you are shooting for are expecting a certain result and in most cases how you arrive at those results is of no difference to your client.
Even if you are shooting for yourself, having some ideas of what you want to shoot and how can save you a lot of time in the long run.
Take some notes with you, copy in a few sample images on your phone for ideas or reference, preset your camera and so forth.
Try without knowing
Sometimes you see an image where you have absolutely no clue as to how the person that took it achieved that result.
Right there is a perfect time to go out and try for yourself and figure it out without googling it beforehand, often you can end up with results much better than you had anticipated.
Shooting through experimenting is a really powerful tool, and it helps you learn your camera quickly and no

So I might do weekly journals, but I finally put into words everything that I wanna share with you to living and leading a successfull and happy life!
Popularity, money and clothes and materials and possessions should never define your life. How about growth, the little things and realizing how beautiful life is/ and the experiences/memories!
When you learn to be grateful and work hard in your life and make things happen AND TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR OWN LIFE, not only will you have more opportunities, lasting friendships and become more happy but you will learn to love your life. I do..and I wish that all my friends and people I love could feel this way. and if there are obstacles? you can be the strong hero/heroine
THAT IS ALL, LOVELIES <3
Few words about art-thieves.Hi!Few words about art-thieves.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My dear watchers, I really appreciate your support when it comes to fight against art-thieves.
But I bet there are also many people whose thoughs can be interpretted like "why is she so hysterical about it?". Some people say, that the fact, that some photo is worth stealing, is a kind of compliment.
Ok, so let me present my point.
At first: why am I so unhappy about reposting of photos?
Because, pals, if somebody just reposts a photo without any change, it just gives totally open space to other people who would find the photos on his/her blog, taking it and posting it themselves. And because the first person did not credit the original author, they also do not credit the creator. The more people do that, the more times the photo is reposted. Always without credit. Sooner or later, it becomes a kind of "public" property and original author has almost no chance to effect this situation.
Do you know this photo? Honestly, EVERYBODY knows it. But do you know original author? Do you

Quote by Lauren E. Simonutti
“ The misfirings of my beloved/despised mind that conspire to convince me to destroy all have rendered me housebound and led to a solitary life. A creature of past, proof, memory and imaginary friends, I am aware enough to know the things I see and hear are not real, but that does not mean I do not still see and hear them.”

Features and Some Things.Hello, not much going on lately. STILL trying to find a job and everywhere I have applied to never got back to me know matter how much I bugged them. So there is that. I finally got my health plan thing worked out so I can finally go and see a doctor. I am of course as always missing CA and my family. I am still struggling with the depression that goes along with all the unfortunate things that seem to happen. Sad to say my self-esteem has been just the lowest of low lately. I am working on it and trying to work through this depression. I am trying to stay positive. I have not really used my camera since Oct. I am itching to get back behind it. Enough about me though I shall be okay.

Just because you shot it in the street...JUST BECAUSE YOU SHOT IT IN THE STREET IT DOESN'T MAKE IT "STREET PHOTOGRAPHY"Just because you shot it in the street...2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Street Photography is a largely misunderstood and misinterpreted photography genre http://myraincheck.deviantart.com/art/Statistics-on-Street-Photography-371453155 .
So, let's try to kill the most common misunderstandings:
Street photography is not photography of (empty) streets and it is not necessarily a photo taken in a street.
Street photography most definitely is not photography of your All Stars shoes in the street, it is not photography of your cat, or of graffiti or 'street art' (that's another genre of photography), it is not photography of your friends or family on trip.
Let's see some attempts to define street photography:
"The essence of street photography is the impulse to take candid pictures in the stream of everyday life" (from 'Street photography Now').
" For the most part, however, the photographers discussed in these pages have tried to work without being noti

The idea of the game is that you have to guess the least popular answer to a multiple answers question. You will be awarded points accordingly, those with the most points will win - but you will have used pointless answers to get there!
We'll have pre-judged the least popular and most popular answers by asking a panel of CVs beforehand for their responses. Want an example?

Okay so Mission Impossible is a really high answer and if you said that one, you'd get lots of points. Which isn't good! If you said Rain Man - you'd possibly be getting less points. But if you said something like Endless Love or Taps, then you'd be hitting on an answer tha
