• Interesting effects that everyone can create with their camera

      Photoshop gives us tremendous opportunities to enhance photographs and add interesting effects to images, but it's much more enjoyable to learn how to do something original directly with your camera. Today we're going to tell you about such effects that you can try with your digital camera.


      effects for camera


      "A" Abstract.

      What does this mean? The basic idea behind all creative photography is abstraction, that is, an abstract vision of reality. Shooting in black and white, can be seen as a way to capture a more abstract reality. Shooting in black and white is probably the easiest option for abstraction. At a more advanced level, you should learn to present ordinary things from an unusual angle, so that the viewer can look at them in a different way, in a new way.

      Special equipment for the camera: Not required

      Shooting tips: Pay attention to patterns and tones, find something interesting and focus on that object.


      "B" Manual Shutter Speed (Bulb)


      What does it mean? Manual shutter speed is a special setting in the camera that will only be available in manual (M) shooting mode. It allows you to set a very slow shutter speed, from a few minutes, up to several hours if possible. The shutter remains open as long as you keep the button pressed. When shooting in such conditions, you will definitely need a tripod, and it is highly desirable to use a remote camera control to avoid the tripod rattling during long exposure to the shutter button.

      Special camera equipment: A cable for remote camera control.

      Shooting tips: To create an interesting effect, it is a good idea to shoot moving cars at manual shutter speeds, experimenting and imagining. This way you can create original fire patterns of headlights and lights. The optimal shutter speed is approximately one minute, at f/11, ISO100. 


      "C" Shooting against the light (Contre-Jour)


      What does it mean? Contre-Jour means "against the light" in French and is used to refer to images shot directly in front of the main light source. If you take a picture this way, you get a dark silhouette of the main subject. Often, such silhouettes can be very interesting, especially if your model will be doing something interesting at that moment.

      Special equipment for the camera: Not required.

      Shooting tips: When shooting at sunrise or sunset, watch out for shapes that could create an interesting silhouette. It would be beautiful to emphasize silhouettes with lines and shapes through texture and detail. 


       "D" Dutch tilt.


      What does this mean? Danish tilt means to change the angle at which the picture is taken. Tilting the camera is an effective way to create more dynamics in the picture. If you're taking pictures of motor sports or cycling, pictures taken at an angle are much more interesting. In portrait photography, it creates more tension and adds some drama to the subject.

      Special equipment for the camera: Not required.

      Tips for Photography: Think about how much you should tilt the camera, considering which elements will be in the frame and which will not. If there are horizontal lines in the frame, make sure they are diagonal, or at some other angle.


      "E" effects Edgerton


      What does this mean? Harold Edgerton, one of the first photographers to start using electronic flash and rapid-fire photography. Thanks to his work in this area, today we can shoot subjects using the flash as we are used to seeing it. On a flash, we adjust the amount of light it emits and how long it does so. The minimum value, corresponds to a duration of about 1/50, 000 seconds, at this rate you can photograph a drop of water and a splash of milk quite easily. With the same technique, you can take a picture of a flying bullet, but it's more difficult. The advantage of shooting liquid is that you can shoot as much as you want, and it will not cause the slightest difficulty or inconvenience.

      Special camera equipment: An external flash connected via a hot shoe, lots of spare batteries, and a source from which water will drip...

      Tips for taking pictures: Set the water source so that the water drips at regular intervals, adjust the exposure manually, also give preference to manual focus. If you do it right, the chance of getting a beautiful shot is quite high, but still be prepared for mishaps.
