Digital Photography Tips

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

1- Compose in Thirds
To use the rule of thirds, imagine four lines, two lying horizontally across the image and two vertical creating nine even squares. Some images will look best with the focal point in the center square, but placing the subject off center will often create a more aesthetically composed photograph. When a photograph is composed using the rule of thirds the eyes will wander the frame. A picture composed by the rule of thirds is more interesting and pleasing to the eye.

2-Avoid Camera Shake
Camera shake or blur is something that can plague any photographer and here are some ways to avoid it. First, you need to learn how to hold your camera properly; use both hands, one around the body and one around the lens and hold the camera close to your body for support. Also make sure you are using a shutter speed that matches the lens focal length. So if you’re using a 100mm lens, then your shutter speed should be no lower than 1/100th of a second. Use a tripod or monopod whenever possible. In lieu of this, use a tree or a wall to stabilize the camera.

3-Use a Polarizing Filter

If you can only buy one filter for your lens, make it a polarizer. This filter helps reduce reflections from water as well as metal and glass; it improves the colors of the sky and foliage, and it will protect your lens too. There’s no reason why you can’t leave it on for all of your photography. The recommended kind of polarizer is circular because these allow your camera to use TTL (through the lens) metering (i.e. Auto exposure).

4-Create a Sense of Depth

When photographing landscapes it really helps to create a sense of depth, in other words, make the viewer feel like they are there. Use a wide-angle lens for a panoramic view and a small aperture of f/16 or smaller to keep the foreground and background sharp. Placing an object or person in the foreground helps give a sense of scale and emphasizes how far away the distance is. Use a tripod if possible, as a small aperture usually requires a slower shutter speed.

Indian Wedding Photography

Monday, December 13th, 2010

Indian wedding photography is not like any other ordinary wedding photography. All over the world people celebrate marriage in diverse customs, but as a photographer I must admit there is something rather unique and special about an Indian wedding. Indian extremely proud of their wedding, it’s apparent from day 1 the amount of detail, decoration and planning that goes into them is almost unmatched by any other culture. For this reason, when planning an traditional wedding it’s important to have the right photographer that can appreciate the amount of work that was put it in.

Here are 3 things you should look for in an Indian photographer. First of all, they need to have experience shooting a Sangeet ceremony. I recently shot a sangeet ceremony and the images appear great because I was able to relate to the customs of sangeet. At the ceremony I remained almost invisible capturing the delicate moments you can never pose for. The smiles and the closeness of family, and my camera created art that night. When the bride and family saw the pictures, they were thoroughly impressed with the results of the raw emotion in the shots.

Secondly, they should have experience shooting a Mehendi party. Mehendi parties are an important part of any traditional Indian wedding. The amount of time it takes to apply the complex designs and waiting for the henna to dry makes getting the right photographer even more important. The right photographer should be familiar with the capturing the different angles, and beauty of henna as well as, the closeness of the brides friends and family throughout the process.

Finally, they should have experience shooting the wedding itself. As the ceremony moves effortlessly so should your photographer. You shouldn’t have to worry about if the right shots are being taken, if you should be doing anything special, or how you can help them. A good photographer needs no direction, they always know where to be and how to do it. Indian wedding photographers are in a league of their own. I can attest to the horror stories of people who hired general wedding photographers to shoot their Indian wedding. It’s important to capture those moments right the first time, there’s always room for fun, but never for any mistakes. I’d love to lend you my expertise as Indian wedding photographer, and help you make one of the best moments of your life last forever.
