174) Take account of people: A landscape isn’t just about nature; so why not include people? A beautiful landscape can be complemented by a cute child or by a beautiful girl running or jumping through the flowers.

Remember the rule of thirds and place the person in an off-center position to create interest.

Choose a fast shutter speed if you want to freeze the action or a slower shutter speed if you want to capture movement.

What do you think ? 😀📷

173) Use water as mirror: Water in subdued light can create beautiful effects and reflections.

The best time for this kind of shot is during the two “golden hours” which are the first hour after sunrise and the last hour before sunset. Put your camera on a tripod and set the mode dial to TV or S (Shutter-Priority) mode. Choose a slow shutter speed and allow the camera to choose the correct aperture.

If you struggle to get a sharp image you can push the ISO up although ISO 125 is a good starting point.

172) Capture movement: If you are working with moving water you can create a stunning white water effect by choosing a long exposure.

One way to do this is by using TV or S (Shutter-Priority) mode and choosing an exposure of 2 seconds or longer. You can also use AV (Aperture-Priority) mode and choose a small aperture like f/32 (which generally requires more light). If working with bright daylight you must use an ND filter to reduce the amount of light hitting the camera, and this way the camera will allow you to have a longer shutter time.

You must always use a tripod for this kind of shot so that the rest of your image remains sharp.

171) White-tailed deer/Mule deer: Like most deer, white-tailed deer are extremely skittish and have excellent hearing – to spot predators (and photographers), so you must be very quiet and approach them from down wind. Wearing camouflage clothing will help to conceal you and let you get as close as possible without spooking the deer. Movement is what gives the photographer away, so be patient and still when you are in your chosen spot. Once the deer get close, you’ll need to use a fast telephoto zoom (100mm to 300mm) to capture the action. Patience is the name of the game here, so waiting with a tripod will keep you from getting fatigued. You can photograph white-tailed deer in the summer when their coats are a deep reddish-brown, or in the fall and winter when the coats become dull gray for protection and concealment. In the summer the male bucks are in “velvet”, a fuzzy collection of blood vessels that nourish the growing antlers. They lose the velvet, and have their full antlers prior to the autumn mating season, known as the “rut”. Antlers later fall off in the winter. Some game farms or zoos have captive deer, and can provide easier photographic opportunities.

170) Capture water drops: Photographing water drops is a difficult art to master – the timing must be perfect. You will have to try this many times before it’s quite right. Set your camera up on a tripod and attach a shutter release cable or remote control. Select continuous or multi-shot mode. Use a macro lens and have a light source from above the water. Fill a tub with water then let a droplet fall into the water. At the same time, let the shutter start so it takes a series of images. One of these should capture the moment the droplet hits the surface.

169) Focus on the eyes: Extreme close-ups can only be achieved with either a macro lens (50mm-180mm) or a zoom lens with macro mode. A lens that will allow manual focus is preferable – autofocus may not be quick or quiet enough to capture the moment. Place the camera on a tripod to avoid camera shake and use a large aperture (f/2-f/8) for a shallow DOF (depth of field). To ensure that the close-up photo draws the eye to a potent element in the photo, focus on the eyes of the bird.

168) Shooting street portraits: Street portraits can be very interesting. You will need to place your model in the foreground and choose an interesting backdrop; something with passing cars or lit buildings. It is the one time flash is highly recommended at night, since it is needed to freeze and light the subject. Even with flash, the subject must be told to stay still, as there can be a slight delay from the time you press the shutter to when the camera fires the flash. A wide aperture helps in highlighting the subject, and makes the background softer. Above all, a good rapport between you and your subject will help you convey some meaning in the portrait. To capture some truly unique street portraits, you should use the smallest aperture possible or set the ISO of your camera to 400 or higher.

157) Still water runs deep: What if there is no movement at all with the water? Still water provides a beautiful effect; reflections. The best time is when there is a dramatic sky, sunset or sunrise over a lake. Choose a location with a tree, rock or boat as a focal point; without one the image will be bland. Use a tripod and turn the flash off as this would spoil the effect. Turn the mode dial to AV (aperture priority) mode; we want f/8 and upwards for a greater depth of field and let the camera choose the correct shutter speed based on the amount of light available.

156) Capture moving insects: Flying insects provide even more difficulty in avoiding camera blur. Fortunately, you can avoid blur by choosing a fast shutter speed of 1/250s and above or by using flash to freeze the action. Remember to put your camera on a tripod and use a cable release, a remote, or the camera’s self timer to take the image. Remember that by pressing the shutter, you cause a slight movement, and when the image is magnified, any blur will be apparent.

155) Cloudy skies: As the light begins to fall, look at the cloudy skies. Watch the colors and how they merge though the cloud. Even though it is dark, you should try using an 80A blue cooling filter to enhance the blue cast of the sky and to reduce the yellow cast from the artifical lights. Use a wide-angle lens and opt for longer exposures. You can first try a few test shots, and then assess them carefully on your digital camera. You should be able to decide on the best range of exposures to capture some good photographs of an overcast sky.

154) Find the right location: The best place to view and photograph the night sky is in the rural countryside because cities have artificial lights which cause a phenomenon known as light pollution. You need to get away from artificial lights in order to see the stars well. A truly dark sky is preferred, but artificial lights keep the night sky from being truly dark. Many beginners aim at capturing the longest star trails by keeping the shutter open for long periods of time. However, they tend to underestimate the impact generated by ambient light in the sky, which can be hard to notice at times. In addition, residual light (such as moonlight) can have a devastating impact on long shutter speed photos. This is because when you keep the shutter open for say, nearly 20 minutes, an hour after the sunset, the camera may perceive it as a day shot. Similarly, a full moon night photo with an exposure time of around 10 minutes could also look like a day shot. Therefore, it is best to attempt such a picture with either a new moon, or well before the moonrise or after the moonset. The light emerging from the stars would be more evident at this time and the picture would be perfect.
