Show Text Step by step instructions to Photograph Jewelry This post is a piece of an arrangement called Product Photography. Step by step instructions to Photograph Your Everyday Essentials You won't not be welcome to shoot adornments , but rather taking photos of your own gems can be an of fun, and a lesson about the way light works. Today, we'll walk you through the whole procedure. The additional time you take to set up a shoot the less demanding it will be a short time later to complete a progression of shots and have the light consistent The additional time you take to set up a shoot the less demanding it will be, subsequently, to complete a progression of shots and have predictable light. 1. Hardware Shooting adornments isn't really a less demanding assignment since we have computerized cameras. It is genuine they help, giving you a prompt thought of the outcomes, yet they don't resolve the essential requirement for a comprehension of light. You need to know how you can influence it to function with you to get the most ideal pictures. That being stated, to photo adornments you needn't bother with a great deal of hardware. Indeed, a sheet of white paper and some window light and reflectors will do, at an essential level. Indeed, even a minimized camera with a large scale or close up capacity will carry out the activity, as long as it likewise gives you a chance to control the introduction. This apparently complex photo was influenced utilizing a divider to reflect as the base for the armlet and ring. You'll additionally require some gems to photo. When you're beginning, you won't do contract work for Cartier, so look to your own family or even your own gems box and photo things that make them intend to you. Making Your Set and Gathering Props You needn't bother with an intricate setup to do great pictures Just play with little reflectors and a window light to begin with You needn't bother with a mind boggling setup to make great pictures. Simply play with little reflectors and a window light to begin with. There are an unending measure of areas and scenes that would bring about great adornments photography. For this instructional exercise, I utilized a tabletop studio with various hued foundations. These are moderately reasonable, yet in the event that you're not will to contribute yet, you could utilize a bed sheet or some butcher paper and still accomplish great outcomes. You'll frequently need an option that is other than the bit of adornments in photograph to include profundity or recount a story. In the event that you end up snared on this kind of photography, make it a propensity to gather materials you can use as props or potentially foundation. Fired tiles, stones and bizarre bit of wood will give you different alternatives for more intricate work. In the meantime, oppose the impulse to mess up your picture with a bundle of garbage. Picking a Camera The outcomes with characteristic light can resemble this case here Focusing exactly and characterizing what ought to be in and out of center is fundamental The outcomes with normal light can resemble this illustration. Centering with accuracy and characterizing what ought to be in and out of center is basic. Current minimized cameras regularly have great large scale capacities because of the little sensor they house. Thusly they are extraordinary devices for adornments photography on the off chance that you can physically modify your presentation settings. This errand is less demanding on a DSLR, however most for most adornments, you'll require a large scale focal point. A full scale focal point is an extraordinary speculation, however they don't come shoddy. Picking a Macro Lens With a full scale focal point you go so near the subject now and then making a stow away for the focal point is a smart thought A white bit of paper with an opening cut in the center will do the trick And work as a reflector of light With a full scale focal point you get so near the subject that, occasionally, making a "stow away" for the focal point is a smart thought. A white bit of paper with a gap cut in the center will get the job done. Furthermore, fill in as a reflector of light. I utilize two full scale focal points, 60mm and 100mm, with an APS-C body. Having two focal points gives you a chance to work nearer or promote far from the subject. The 60mm can be tricky for a portion of the sets with little question since I need to get excessively near the protest fill the casing. The 100mm is more adaptable in that sense. While picking a full scale focal point, consider what you will utilize it for and how close you really need to be to your subject. Utilize a Tripod and a Remote Shutter Release A tripod keeps precisely the same and characterize profundity of field changes A tripod is decent to have for this work. Now and then I will work with the camera in my grasp, particularly on the off chance that I am utilizing streak. All things considered, a tripod will help you to keep a subject encircled a similar way, which will enable you to exactly alter your core interest. A remote screen trigger is basic, so you don't need to press the shade on the camera. As a few exposures can be on the more drawn out side, touching the camera would cause vibration that would appear on the picture. Flashes, Diffusers and Reflectors When you set the light right it doesn't make a difference what you change out of sight the introduction continues as before When you set the light right, it doesn't make a difference what you change out of sight, the introduction continues as before A great deal of my table best photography is finished with normal light and reflectors. See my article, 8 Reflectors You Already Have in Your Home, for some data on making your own reflectors. You can likewise utilize streak, that gives you a chance to shoot at any hour you need. One glimmer will be sufficient, two will be awesome, three is most likely excessively. A glimmer and a solitary reflector (from business brands to a white bit of paper, froth, or cardboard) will offer you various alternatives. Your glimmer must "off camera" for proficient outcomes. You can utilize links or radio triggers to put you streak off to the side of the scene. 2. Making Soft, Even Light Attempt with various foundations for various temperaments and results The best photography area is nearer than you might suspect. Discover a window at home that offers great light you can control, set a table there and your studio is nearly in working request. A white froth board can be your working base, at that point include a couple of hand crafted reflectors, possibly some little mirrors. Simply recollect that light has shading, and that light changes. On the off chance that you've a red divider out of sight its tone will presumably impact everything around. Likewise, don't blend lighting. In case you're utilizing window light, kill the various lights in the room. You can utilize streak, tungsten lights, fluorescent, yet don't utilize them together. Differentiating hues help to make solid pictures that draw in consideration. The objective for most gems photography is to make delicate even light with almost no shadow. Dealing with a dark foundation makes this somewhat less demanding. When you're first beginning, utilize the reflector to influence it to appear as though light is hitting the subject from all headings. The Right Conditions A LED light and a reflector can likewise be utilized for adornments photography The keys to great adornments photography are sharpness, lighting, introduction, so it pays to examine every circumstance and characterize what you expect to do. Sharpness will be definitely influenced by your profundity of field, so I generally begin my introduction arrangement by focusing on my gap. When shooting large scale photographs, your profundity of field will be extremely shallow because of the little separation between the protest and your camera. Along these lines, it's normal to utilize openings above f/11. The most ideal approach to control your lighting and introduction is to utilize your flashes in manual mode. Flashes offer predictable light that can be situated precisely. By utilizing manual mode, I can control the correct yield, regardless of whether I change foundations or hues in my setup. Try different things with the position of your glimmer and reflectors, and you'll locate a decent blend. Utilizing a plain dim foundation or a mirror make diverse pictures of a similar ring Persistence and practice are the most vital parts of shooting adornments. You should know about your concentration, yet above all, your light. Delicate, even light tends to create the best look. Make sure to keep batteries charging, both for camera and flashes, hear some out great music, and have a some espresso close by while you audit your pictures to perceive how the session is going. Roll out little improvements, and you'll end up making great pictures.
Show Text Food photography is arguably one of the most challenging types of photography out there. Like painting, you start with a blank canvas and build. Layer upon layer, you construct the photo until you reach the perfect balance of reality and art. Everything in the photo is a decision. Every piece is perfectly placed by the photographer. Starting out is frustrating, I know. You’re the chef, stylist, and the photographer. Once you reach technical proficiency with the camera, what’s next? I have been, and in a lot of ways still am, in that position. So, how do you improve your food photography beyond the basics? You work on the story. Whether it is an after-party from the perfect cocktail, or the homemade roasted chicken recipe on the farm, like all photography, you’re telling stories. Some shoots are more complicated stories than others, and it may sound like a lot of work, but it’s really not. Here are five quick tips you can use to seriously improve your food photography and tell better stories. #1 – CHOOSE YOUR ANGLE There are really only a few camera angles in food photography that you see again and again, but you need to make the one you choose, a conscious decision. Where you place the camera will affect the type of story you’re trying to tell. Think of the food beforehand. Its size, shape, height and what is unique about it. Then place the camera where you think best highlights these qualities. Some dishes look great when you shoot from right in front of the food, and others are best suited when the you are looking down from directly above the table. Take a look at the cupcakes below; their spiralled and delicate toppings really stand out when shot from in front, yet the viewer doesn’t even see the size or shape when photographed from above. On the other hand, it’s difficult to see all the ingredients and beautiful shape of these salmon tacos when shot from the front, so the shot from above was definitely the way to tell this story. #2 – SURROUND YOUR HERO When shooting from the front of the food try to keep a great foreground and background to play with. Use these empty spaces to tell more of a story. Surround your main dish with ingredients and props that relate to the food. Ingredients, sauces, oils, and cooking utensils could indicate how the dish was made. Tins, jars, herbs, glasses, fabrics and linens could speak about the origin of the dish or the season in which it is served. Placing a few of these in the foreground and background will definitely elevate your story and give it depth. The props in this image of baklava bring more to the story. The viewer has a sense of place that describes the Arabic origins of this delicious sweet. #3 – NATURAL IS BEST MODIFIED Light is king, and acquiring a few tools to help you control it will bring your food photography up to the next level. Poor use of light will ruin your story and immediately turn off your audience. So making sure light doesn’t distract will help out your food photos big time. Direct natural light can give really hard and defined shadows like beneath the lemon cake on the left. Where those shadows are softened in the image to the right, with a little help from a cheap diffusor. Placing a diffusor between the window and your table is first on the list. When working with direct sunlight, a diffusor (or even a thin white bed sheet) will greatly improve the quality of light. Softening those hard, dark shadows and bright highlights caused by direct sun light. Using white and black cards really gives you control over the shadow areas. A white card was used to brighten up that lemon frosting on the left, but if you prefer more contrast than grab a black card and you’ll get an image like the one on the right. Next up are white and black cards. You can make these yourself using foam core boards, bought at any craft store. Size them to fit your needs, using white cards to bounce light into shadow areas, revealing important details, or black cards to make shadows stronger for more contrast. Nothing really changes between these two images except for a black card that was used to stop light from hitting the background, making sure the cake was the brightest area of the photograph. Here is a little secret, when working with natural light. I call it, blocking (sometimes also called “gobos”). Sometimes that pesky natural light will fall on your background or props, causing them to be as bright or even brighter than your subject. Since the viewer will always look at the brightest spot in your photo first, if it’s not your subject, it can harm your story. You can use your black cards to block light from hitting areas that will compete with your subject. This is also a very important technique for creating darker, low-key styled images. Here is the final image, with a diffusor softening the window light, a white card to fill in the shadow on the lemon frosting and a black card to block the light on the background. #4 – OUR OLD FRIENDS LINES AND LAYERS With all these props and ingredients in the frame, how will we ever get the audience to look at our subject? Well, bring on the trusty techniques of composing with lines and layers. You can use props or ingredients to create lines and layered effects in your images. This is a compositional technique used by photographers to lead their audience’s eyes to the main subject. You can use various props to create lines. Like this spoon, which forms a nice line, directing the viewer straight to the bowl of baked peaches and ice cream. Since shooting from above always gets you more graphic images, there are plenty of chances to create some great lines here as well. Some could be quite literal like this cutlery leading to the round of Brie – or more abstract, like how the knife and pomegranate seeds create lines, framing our subject. Composing images with layers is always a winner. This Brie, shot from the front, is set in the middle of various props and two large out of focus areas. This creates a layered effect, sending your eyes straight to the star. #5 – HOLD THE COLOR This is my personal favorite. I love hunting for props, backgrounds and tableware to put in my images. This little tip was also the first big mistake I was making when I was starting out. It’s great to have props that are colorful, but if you’re not careful that colorful prop can easily upstage your food, and grab all the attention. When placing items into your food images, try selecting neutral tones, something that makes the food really pop against it. Selecting a neutral background like this black metal tray and baking paper, amplifies the bright red strawberries inside these Crostatas, making them really steal the show.
Show Text Light, shapes, lines, forms — the foundations of photography. No matter what subjects you shoot, you’ll end up working with these features for every photo that you take. Architectural photography, though, takes it to another level, with its perfect geometrical lines and shapes that are hard to find anywhere else in the world. In this article, I will cover everything from indoor architectural photography to outdoor “urban landscapes” and cityscapes, including some tips and tricks that I use all the time in my own photos. 1) Camera equipment No matter which images you want to capture, the first thing that many people consider is camera equipment. For architectural photography, you can take good photos with any equipment, but there is some gear that certainly works better than others. Tripods and Support First, the most important piece of equipment you can own as an architectural photographer is some type of camera support. This helps you take well-lit and sharp photos even in dark buildings, or for nighttime shots outdoors. A tripod is the most obvious choice, and it’s what I use more than anything else. However, some places (especially a lot of cathedrals and museums) restrict your tripod use. So, you have to pick something else that would work in such limiting environments. On one hand, a lot of people gravitate towards monopods, which are a good way to add some extra stability to your shots. However, monopods don’t stand completely still, so they aren’t the ideal choice in low-light situations. Compared to handholding, they’re good, but a solid tripod will let you use much longer shutter speeds. (See: How to Use a Monopod.) Other people prefer to use a miniature tripod instead. Often, buildings that restrict full-size tripods are perfectly fine with small ones, since they don’t take up as much space or bother other visitors. This varies from place to place, but it holds true more often than not. However, miniature tripods restrict your camera position to very low angles, unless you hold your tripod against something like a wall or bench (which may lead to blurry photos if you aren’t perfectly steady). Finally, consider something like a stabilizing clamp. There are versions available from Manfrotto (requires additional adapters, and is relatively large) and Really Right Stuff. This piece of equipment lets you attach your camera directly to railings, tables, benches, and so on — allowing a bit more flexibility than a miniature tripod. These are permitted almost everywhere, since they clearly aren’t tripods and they don’t take up much space to limit movement of other people. However, you need to be somewhere that has the right places to clamp your gear, or you simply won’t be able to use them at all. Lenses As is true for every genre of photography, lenses are critically important for architecture and cityscapes. Wide angle lenses let you emphasize the spaciousness of an interior, and telephotos let you zoom into tiny details in distant urban landscapes. Don’t restrict yourself — good architectural photos can be taken at any focal length. Although wide-angles are more popular (since they tend to work better indoors), I always recommend carrying a telephoto lens with you as well. I have gotten many of my favorite architectural shots by focusing on small, interesting details in the distance. Architectural-Photography-1 NIKON D7000 + 105mm f/2.8 @ 105mm, ISO 1600, 1/15, f/2.8 The gold standard for architectural photography, however, is a tilt-shift lens. These lenses let you fix a common problem when photographing architecture: the building appears to lean backwards. You definitely can correct this issue in post-processing, but you’ll lose detail and may not get a perfect correction. Take a look at the comparison below: Perspective Control In this case, the photo on the left clearly looks tilted, while the photo on the right — although not perfect — appears much straighter. Tilt-shift lenses do this in-camera rather than in post-production, which often leads to better composition, since you can correct distortion on the spot. Unfortunately, tilt-shift lenses are quite expensive. Nikon’s newest 19mm tilt-shift lens is 12,488 AED ()! Even used tilt-shifts from the big brands can run in the 5,510 AED () to 7,346 AED () range, putting them out of budget for most photographers. That’s why I don’t use a tilt-shift lens; I simply use the wide-angle lens I already own. Although I sometimes need to correct a photo’s perspective in post-processing, that’s a good enough solution in most situations. If you have a wide-angle and a telephoto, that’s all you really need. Some photographers also like using mid-range lenses for architectural shots; it simply depends upon your personal preferences. For me, though, something like a 16-35mm works for indoor photography, and a telephoto like the 70-200mm works for cityscapes. You can’t go wrong with any kit that covers a similar range. Cameras For architectural photography, your camera isn’t hugely important. You don’t need a top-of-the-line focusing system to capture indoor scenes, and all modern cameras have enough pixels to capture lots of detail. Whatever you currently have should be enough. There are a few features that are nice for architectural photography, though. If your camera has a tilting LCD screen, for example, you’ll be able to take photos of ceilings much more easily. The other nice feature is dynamic range. If you have a new camera with great dynamic range, you’ll be able to take photos without resorting to HDR or exposure blending in difficult situations (which, when there are windows in your photo, could happen pretty often). Finally, if you plan to shoot a lot of handheld architectural photos, your camera’s low-light performance is obviously important (as would be your lens’s vibration reduction). Hopefully, though, you will be able to use some form of camera support most of the time. Overall, though — as mentioned above — you can take good landscape photos with any equipment. It’s much more important to find interesting buildings and good light. Use the best gear you can, of course, but don’t be discouraged if you’re missing an item or two. 2) Camera settings It is important to use the right camera settings for any genre of photography, and architectural photography is no exception. In fact, with all the extreme variations of light that you may encounter, proper exposure here is arguably even more important than usual. The main problem with architectural photography is the extreme brightness of window light. If you want details both inside and outside a window, you must resort to extreme recovery in post-processing, or, more often, blending multiple exposures together into one. Of course, some buildings are much simpler. If you aren’t dealing with extreme differences in dynamic range, simply expose how you normally would. Set your camera to its base ISO (assuming you are on a tripod), use an aperture that gives the desired depth of field, and let your shutter speed fall wherever it gives you the proper exposure. If you do need to work with multiple exposures, you’ll need to bracket your photos. Keep your ISO and aperture the same for each shot, but use a range of different shutter speeds — one that exposes the window properly, one that exposes the interior of the building, and as many as you need in between (separating each photo by 2/3 or one full stop of light). Finally, a plea: more than any other genre of photography, people abuse HDR without limits for architectural images. If you do combine multiple exposures together, try not to cross over into Candy Land colors. I always work my hardest to make an image look completely natural, even when multiple exposures are combined into one. (Lightroom’s new HDR feature is one of the best available if you are trying to maintain a sense of reality.) 3) Working with the light Photography is light — it’s as simple as that. When you’re taking architectural photos, the best way to get a good image is to make the most of the light in your scene. Indoors, this means that you should photograph a scene with light that complements the building’s design. In modern buildings, the architect likely put a lot of effort into the shape and appearance of the light, and you won’t have any major problems. Older buildings might not work as well, but, as always, it depends upon the place. For example, some of the best light you’ll ever find is in centuries-old churches and cathedrals lit entirely by large windows. Architectural-Photography-2 NIKON D7000 + 24mm f/1.4 @ 24mm, ISO 200, 1/80, f/2.5 For outdoor architectural photography, everything is about the interaction between the sun and the building’s own lights. After sunset, for example, the dark sky and bright orange lights can complement each other beautifully, leading to fantastic images. This is one of my favorite times to take cityscape photos. Architectural-Photography-3 NIKON D7000 + 24mm f/1.4 @ 24mm, ISO 360, 1/50, f/1.4 Other times, you may be photographing a building that doesn’t have any built-in external lights. In that case, just like normal landscape photography, the sun is all that matters. Try photographing buildings like this at sunset or sunrise — the times of day with the most unusual light and colors in the sky. Architectural-Photography-4 NIKON D800E + 20mm f/1.8 @ 20mm, ISO 100, 1/60, f/8.0 Finally, remember that architectural photography is all about geometry. Make the most of lines, shapes, and symmetry — very few genres of photography let you work with such perfect forms and patterns. In fact, a lot of architectural photography ends up looking abstract, which I think is fantastic. If you find an interesting detail in a building, even if it is difficult to put into context, you could end up with some great images. 4) Getting rid of people If you’re photographing a popular building, chances are good that people will end up in your photo. Sometimes, there’s nothing wrong with this. In fact, I have seen several great images that feature a person inside a grand work of architecture, putting the entire image into scale and providing a center of interest. Other times, though, you’ll want your architectural photos to include nothing but architecture, and that’s also valid. The simplest way to remove people in your photo, assuming that they are relatively small and unobtrusive, is just to clone them out in Photoshop. However, not everyone likes using Photoshop to change the way a scene appeared, and other photos simply don’t work well for this type of manipulation — the people in your photo may cover important details that Photoshop cannot successfully bring back. For that reason, a lot of architectural photographers like to own neutral density filters. These filters are simply dark sheets of glass, not tinted any color, that force your camera to use longer shutter speeds than normal. This doesn’t sound like a great solution, but it actually works quite well. If your neutral density filter lets you take a 30 second exposure, anything moving in the image will appear completely invisible! So, all the people in your scene will be blurred our of existence, assuming that they don’t sit or stand still during most of the exposure. Finally, if you don’t have a neutral-density filter, you can simulate its effects by taking multiple photos from the same position, waiting a few minutes from shot to shot. Then, open the resulting images as layers in Photoshop. For every person in the frame, simply erase or mask them out, revealing the layers below (where, since they were taken a few minutes later, any people have moved out of the way). None of these solutions is perfect, but you need to do something if there are people blocking important parts of your photo. For architectural photography more than any other genre, you’ll want to keep these tools in mind. 5) Conclusion Architectural photography is a tremendous amount of fun, and it’s something you will be able to practice in nearly every city that you visit. If you live in a city, consider taking some architectural photos of nearby buildings — it’s a great way to keep your photographic eye in practice. Architectural photography works best if you are interested in the basics: lines, patterns, and light. It’s also a fantastic genre if you enjoy abstract photography, since many buildings are patterned in ways that seem very unusual when taken out of context. With all these positives, it’s no wonder that architectural photography is so popular. Hopefully, the tips in this article will help you make the most of your next shoot.
