You should firstly consider how to shoot the photo in the best possible way.  Below have been discussed some of the emotions of color photography.

Missing subject

Nowadays color in photography has changed the way people used to look at photos. All reputed newspapers and magazines use color photos to make a specific content more attractive for the readers.

Good composition

A photo just having attractive color cannot be termed as a unique one until it has a good composition. It’s useless framing a photo that does not obey the rules of photography.

Replace color photography

But the same photo with bright color depicts a new life being brought in the new world.

Emotional connection

A specific color may depict different meaning in different places and cultures. For instance a white gown may be wedding dress for some culture but at the same time it is also a dress that is meant to be worn in funeral ceremony. A color can express different views for different people. For example the color red may represent destruction, loss and fear in the mind of the people but at the same time the red color is a symbol of love, passion and romance.

What You Need To Know About ISO Photography?

Photography nowadays is a very trending topic. Lots of people nowadays are choosing it as their profession and many people are taking it up as a hobby. If you want to be good in photography then you must have discipline and a good concept of light. Having proper lighting is most important criteria in taking a good picture. Proper exposure is critical as it collects light to define the texture of the picture. To have a proper exposure you should have a good grasp on shutter speed, aperture and ISO.

How ISO Photography Works

ISO can be defined as measurement of sensitivity of a sensor to light, it is also known as ASA. Basically what special about ISO, is that it minimizes the time taken for shutter giving you enough time to take the shot. For example, if you are trying to shoot pictures without a tripod you will need to increase your ISO settings, which are generally set to 100 – 200. You should increase the ISO setting which will decrease the time your camera will take to collect light.

There are different level sets in ISO photography, they are 100,200,400,800, etc. As you increase the settings level your camera will take the pictures faster and have better resolution. Suppose you want to take a picture of a moving object, then you feel that your shutter speed is not enough. You need to increase the Setting level of ISO to get the perfect shutter speed.

The concept of ISO greatly helps in cases of low light shooting as well. The main problems you would face in low light shootings are the bad lighting, low shutter speed. You can simply raise the shutter speed by increasing the ISO level and get your desired depth of field.

Some cameras have automatic ISO feature present in it. If you set your camera on Auto it will automatically adjust your ISO settings and shutter speed to get a good exposure. This feature will help your picture in getting the perfect texture. The automatic ISO feature does not always use the full range of the camera so it might be required for you to increase it.

Problems with ISO

Increasing ISO will decrease the time to collect light but also increase the noise in a picture. Noise in pictures may be defined as disturbances in the picture quality in the form of speckle-y patterns. When you increase the ISO level, signals coming out of sensors are also amplified as well as the disturbances are also amplified. The amount of noise depends from camera to camera. So to overcome this problem you need to keep practicing ISO photography.

  • Sharpness and contrast is lacking between the subject and background
  • Blurred pictures with poor clarity.

Solutions and tips for underwater photography

The blue effect in the picture is generally because of not using the camera flash. Even if you use the flash from too far then also the result will be bluish. The main problem in the water is that it absorbs a lot of light and warmer colours like yellow and red. Red will totally get vanish if you click the pictures from a distance of 12 to 15 feet.

If you are using the flash then remember that the light has to fall on the object and then come back to the lens. For this you have to be 5 feet away from the object and more than that to make the flash work effectively.

Another problem of dots and circles in camera is because of the tiny particles that are present in the water. When the flash falls on them and gets reflected your pictures get small white dots like snow. The main problem is using the internal flash which is situated near the lens and reflects the light back to lens. But if you use an external flash then you will not face this problem. Even you can use diffuser to reduce the dots and circles.

You will know that water is denser than that of air and that is why clicking pictures inside the water lose the sharpness and contrast. The only solution for this is to go nearer to the object and click the pictures. You will get better sharpness and contrast for both the background and object. Though you can add little bit sharpness and contrast later during the editing and processing the photos.

So, these are the basic underwater photography tips for the beginners who are interested in underwater photography. These will surely help you a lot.
