It is important to find a clear day with little to no wind. Wind can blow the clouds in different directions and make it difficult to capture what you want. If it is not sunny, try to find an area that will be in the sunlight such as on a beach or in a field during sunset.

Take pictures at different times of day – sunrise, sunset, and midday

One of the best times to photograph clouds is at sunrise, sunset, and midday. It’s important to take pictures at different times of day because there will be a difference in the lighting and shadows. For example, when you’re taking photos during sunrise or sunset it is perfect timing with regards as what camera settings are needed for each type if photograph; however midday time requires less harsh light so one would use softer image quality such as ISO setting on their digital SLR (or higher resolution print).

Look for different clouds to get various emotions.

Clouds are amazing things to look at, and it’s even more of a pleasure when you can see the different types. For example, looking for cirrus clouds may provide a sense of tranquility because they come from high-level humidity and tend to drift across the sky.

What Is the Concept of “Contrast” in Photography?

Contrast is the difference in color that makes something appear distinct. In photography, a high contrast photo has a greater difference between dark and light portions of the image. Low contrast photos have a smaller difference in light levels, while medium contrast photos have an average difference in light level.

Low-contrast images are generally used for portraits because they’re easier to work with when you don’t want your subject’s skin to look too light or too dark. The low-contrast setting also makes your subject’s face less harsh and flattering to the eye. Medium-contrast photos are generally characterized by being sharp and crisp, but not so much so that it becomes blurry. Medium-contrast photographs are great for a variety of images.

High-contrast images are great for landscapes and other pictures where you want the details to really stand out without any loss in sharpness or focus. High contrast photos can also be used when taking photos at night because it reflects more light, making your subject clearer instead of darker like with low-contrast photographs. With high-contrast photography, however, faces may look too harsh and unflattering depending on the angle that is shot from. They’re especially good for architecture though!

What is Lomography? Is it for me?

Lomography is an art form that was born out of a need to escape the limitations and restrictions imposed by modern technology. Lomographers try to be creative, think outside the box, and explore their artistic side in a way that many people never feel comfortable doing. It’s not about what you can do with your camera; it’s about what your imagination can create!


What Exactly Is Lomography?

Lomography is the art of taking pictures with a Lomograph camera, which is a toy camera that was originally introduced to the market in the 1900’s. Lomographs rely on the flaws and unpredictability of these cameras, rather than on their sophisticated technology, for their artistic effects. The photographs taken with these cameras often have blurry and distorted images; photographers often use light painting, long exposures, double exposures and multiple exposures to produce effects and unusual patterns. In addition to the artistic effects, Lomography also encourages photographers to get away from their computer screens and go out into the world to take pictures.

Is It for Me?

If you already have a creative side but feel limited by modern technology or if you are just looking for an easy way to try something different with your camera, then lomography might be perfect for you! All that’s required is a little imagination! There are many options available when it comes to choosing a film camera; some models require special light settings while others allow photographs in either color or black and white. Once you’ve chosen which model best fits your needs, all that’s left is deciding how much of yourself should go into each picture: not too little and not too much!

What Makes Lomography so Unique?

Lomography is a different type of photography because it focuses on the “whole” picture and not just one … Read the rest

Shutter Priority Mode: How and When to Use it!

In photography, shutter priority mode is a very useful and versatile setting. This guide will help you understand how to use this feature on your DSLR camera so that you can take advantage of its benefits!

It’s no secret that photography is a huge industry. It has created jobs, brought people together, and made

Shutter Priority

What is Shutter Priority Mode?

Speed of the shutter is controlled by the camera in shutter priority mode, and aperture (f-stop) is controlled by the photographer. The aperture can usually be changed without regard to whether or not it will produce acceptable exposure. In most DSLRs, the shutter speed is limited to a minimum of about 15-20 seconds unless you have special equipment that allows shorter exposures.

In Shutter Priority Mode, the camera will select an aperture setting based on how it calculates proper exposure for whatever lighting condition or scene mode preset has been selected by the user (portrait, landscape, etc.). The photographer then sets this value and opens and closes the diaphragm herself/himself to change depth of field while still maintaining correct overall exposure. This feature is useful when working with moving subjects in low light because it gives complete control over just “one” variable: either f-stop or shutter speed depending upon which one you set yourself! if something moves into your frame such as a person or animal, you can quickly change your settings to freeze the action.

When should you use Shutter Priority Mode?

Many photographers prefer using this feature when shooting subjects that are moving very fast like birds, children playing sports, pets running around, etc.. Setting your DSLR camera to capture movement with high speed motion will require either higher ISOs or fast shutter speeds. This is where Shutter Priority Mode comes in handy! If … Read the rest
