High-speed photography or simply HSP is a technique used by photographers to capture very fast moving objects or other occurrences that are normally not visible to the human eye. The most common examples of high-speed photography are those pictures of a bullet coming out of one side of an apple or photographs of birds frozen in mid-air. There are also pictures of soap bubbles popping and many more. Read More
Long exposure photography refers to the use of very slow or long-duration shutter speed to create interesting effects. Leaving the camera's shutter open for an extended period of time allow the camera to absorb more light, resulting to a brighter image. At shutter speeds, ranging from 1/15 of a second up to many hours, this technique can create a picture where stationary elements of images are captured sharply while blurring, smearing, or obscuring the moving elements. Example of which is a scene where there are moving cars on a fixed street and buildings on the background shot under low-light condition or at night. Read More
Tilt shift photographs are produced using camera movement techniques on small- and medium-format cameras. Specifically, tilt-shift effect can be achieved through the use of tilt for selective focus to simulate a miniature scene. When looking at tilt shift photographs, you have a feeling that you are looking at a miniature of something like a scenery, for example,or an aerial view of a city. Read More
Panoramic photography is a technique in photography, where specialized equipment or software is used to capture photographs with wide fields of view. Panoramic photography is also interchangeably called wide format photography. This term is used to describe images that is cropped to a relatively wide aspect ratio. While there is no formal division between "wide-angle" and "panoramic" photography, "wide angle" normally refers to a type of lens, but this lens type does not necessarily image a panorama. Read More
HDR photography or high dynamic range imaging is one of the techniques that aspiring photographers need to master. HDR refers to a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range of exposures (the range of values between light and dark areas) than normal digital imaging techniques. In other words, the goal of HDR is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to shadows, resulting to an image with deeper contrast and color tones. Basically, there are two kinds of HDR photos. The first type are the so-called HDR composite photos which are achieved by taking a series of shots of a subject at different exposures and combining them later in an image editing program such as Photoshop. The second type of HDR images are produced using programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom or other programs by adjusting the tonal values or the shadows, highlights, and other settings. Read More
Macro Photography, also known as Photomacrography, is a method of getting close-up pictures using specialized accessories attached to the camera's lens. In short, it is the process of taking photos of small objects with a regular photographic lens at reproduction rations of one times or greater. Macro Photography can be used to capture things around us. Among the most popular things that photographers pick as subject for macro photography are the trees, the flowers, insects, and other things.
