Tips Night and Twilight Photography

Tips Night and Twilight Photography

It’s necessary to be patient, then we can get really great images. Your technical skills will play an important role at night.

At night you work with long exposure time, which requires the use of a tripod and a shutter-release cable. You should set the lowest ISO value, foIf you normally use any filters on your lens, better remove them at night. If it’s windy it may be difficult to keep the camera steady on your tripod. Then you can hang some weight or collapse the tripod legs to their minimum height.

What else? Know in advance where you are going to do your night photo session. Prepare a little time plan. Check the weather forecast for this place. It will create the character of your photography. It’s also good to know where you can see the Sunset and the Moon. They are also important.r example ISO 100 or ISO 200. Exposure time around 1-10 seconds is a good time for this kind of photography. Your camera will register movements in a very special way, differently then your eye. The effects are really fascinating: moving lights and reflections create a new reality. The spotlights in movement make interesting patterns, moving cars are not visible in the picture, only their light traces.

You should know the settings of your camera. Do you work manually? It’s also important to understand your camera’s light metering system. It will allow you to set right exposure parameters. Try to take some pictures also just after twilight, when you can still catch some colours. You could catch interesting colours. Thankful to these photographies your photo session will give you more satisfaction. There will be a variety of effects and moods.

How to Learning Photography Composition

How to Learning Photography Composition

Selecting a viewpoint to photograph can be likened to opinion-selecting. Differing opinions are available for most subjects in the world today. There aren’t ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ opinions, just different ones. The same is true about taking a picture. There aren’t any right or wrong viewpoints, just many different ones.

If you understand composition, you can take numerous shots of just one image. Looking at a landscape or a building or a model from different angles opens the door for variety and contrast in your pictures. This means you need to walk all around the focal point to see what’s available. You will want to check the use of different lenses or zoom levels, and different heights. Again, this is true for indoor and outdoor shots as well as people and things.

Experimenting and exploring with the position of your camera as well as your physical position in relation to the focal point allows you to discover many possible appealing angles. As you move and change your camera angle, both the subject and the background change. Some of the elements you look at include whether you want to compliment or contract focal point and background, what kinds of lines you want in your final picture, what if any frame you want within the picture boundaries themselves, reducing or increasing light to intensify and create interest, and how you can create interaction between focal point and background in your picture.

Using your zoom feature is another way to select a viewpoint without physically moving. Changing your zoom level may create a completely different picture of the same subject. Zooming out to a wide-angle creates a frame for the focal point; the frame can either be background or it can be foreground. Some detail is generally lost, but this kind of shot does not require detail. Again lighting becomes important since, for example, a dark foreground might add emphasis and frame to a focal point that is brighter in the distance. Moving to another position that removes the dark foreground, but stays with the same angle, creates an entirely different picture. Both positions, although different, can result in quality photographs.

Cropping a picture with a close-up zoom will make a radical difference in the shot. Generally speaking, if you want just one focal point in your frame, the close-up shot is most effective. Detail in landscapes or buildings can be defined in a closely zoomed shot. Zooming in on patterns, lines, contrasting features and spot-lit features can all create fascinating pictures. Likewise, the absolute beauty of a model’s face or body can be caught in a close-up.

Finally, some general rules of thumb apply.

1. Use a wide-angle lens in a close-up to eliminate distractions in the background.

2. Use height (or conversely, a low position) to shoot your subject to vary your angle; interesting foreground can be created from a low position looking up and perspective changes when a picture is shot looking down.

3. Always look for interesting foreground and frame, whether you are shooting indoors or outside.

Develop a sense of experimentation and vary your shots. You won’t regret the results.

Tips Photograph Stunning Mountain Scenes

Tips Photograph Stunning Mountain Scenes

There is nothing quite as exhilarating and rewarding as getting back to nature and photographing mountain scenery. Mountains are dramatic, inspiring and provide great photography potential. Whilst you will need to be careful, mountains can be much more accessible and rewarding for the landscape photographer than you realise. Here are some top tips to get you started and hopefully capture those stunning scenes.

Find Accessible locations

This iconic mountain is the Matterhorn in Switzerland and probably recognised all over the world for its distinctive shape. I would love to have claimed great hardship in capturing this image but I was sat sipping a Cappuccino outside a restaurant at the time. This area like many in European mountain regions is peppered with cable cars making them very accessible to photographers.

Use a Telephoto Lens

As with the previous example of the Matterhorn, this image was shot using a telephoto lens. In the Matterhorn example it helped bring the mountain closer to me so requiring less effort on my part. This image from the Torres del Paine area of Patagonia was shot using a 300mm lens to crop in close and make the mountain loom large in the viewfinder. Using a telephoto lens helps emphasise the size of the mountain and make it appear more dramatic. Fill the frame for maximum impact.

Weather Adds Drama

Mountains are a great place to experience extremes of weather and whilst this means taking extra care, it can also mean great photo opportunities. I like showery weather best (especially in winter) as this means plenty of changing conditions with dramatic light. Showers that might only last for a few minutes give you many chances to catch that wonderful clearing storm light. In this shot from one of the many ridges in the English Lake District a passing snow shower allows the sun to break through. A few minutes earlier the sky was black and the snow swirling everywhere. Sit it out but be prepared and you will be handsomely rewarded.

Shoot down as well as up

Another aspect to mountain photography that’s often forgotten is to shoot down from the tops of mountains into valleys, or towards other mountains. Yes this requires a greater level of fitness in reaching the top of the mountain but the images look completely different. The view in the previous image is one example of shooting down from the mountain.

Get your Feet Muddy but Stay Safe

My final tip is to get your feet muddy. If you stand at the foot of the hills, or shoot from the side of the road you will almost certainly be making compromises. Get yourself into gear and walk into the hills, remembering though that you need to be safe:

  • Try to go with another person so that if you hit problems you can help each other
  • Always have a mobile phone with you. Sometimes you won’t get a signal but frequently you get a very good signal. There have been examples recently of Alpine climbers being rescued because they sent a message to someone back home
  • Always have a map and compass and/or GPS and know how to use them
  • Wear/carry the right equipment. It’s not just about taking photographs so take food, warm/waterproof clothing and sturdy footwear
  • Try to learn outdoor hill walking skills or go with someone who is experienced

If you stay safe and follow these tips you will enjoy your mountain photography.
