People pictures fall into two categories. Portraits and candid. Either can be made with or without your subjects awareness and cooperation. The most common mistake made by photographers is that they are not physically close enough to their subjects. In some cases this means that the center of interest—the subject—is just a speck too small to have any impact. The settings in which you make pictures of people are important because they add to the viewers understanding of your subject. The room in which a person lives or works their house the city street they walk the place in which they seek relaxation—whatever it is the setting provides information about people and tells us something about their lives. A great deal of people photography is understanding human nature and being aware of how people usually react in given situations. If someone is sitting in a café he will usually look up when the waiter approaches. Think about the situation you are photographing and how people are likely to act in it. Then prepare yourself for the moment. Children are full of expressions and creativity. Try to capture everyday things but rather than asking your child to pose let them have fun and do their usual thing. Innocence is one of the things we associate with childhood – why not capture this It could be an innocent expression or a moment of childish fun. Let the child play or perhaps talk to them about something that makes them think.

Wide-angle lenses come in fixed-focal lengths 14 18 20 24 and 28mm are common fixed-focal lengths and in zooms such as Nikon’s 12-24mm or Canon’s 16- 35mm. following are tips to try out when shooting with a wide-angle lens. 1 Avoid Distortion: Wide-angle lenses can be good at keeping vertical and horizontal lines straight but only when the camera is pointed straight ahead. Any slight downward or upward angle can result in distorted lines particularly along the edges. Keeping the camera level with the horizon and perpendicular will provide nice straight lines that require little or no correction in post processing. 2 Use Distortion: There are times however when some distortion can add to the photo so try moving the lens about and seeing how it affects the lines along the edges or distorts objects in the foreground. This is very subjective of course and not everyone will like the results. I personally prefer to do this very subtly as I’m not trying to mimic a fisheye lens. 3 An Interesting Foreground: As wide- angle lenses capture more of the scene it is a good idea to make sure there is something interesting in the foreground for the viewer to look at. This is particularly true of landscape photography. Otherwise there may be too much empty space in the photo and the image can become boring and leave the viewer’s eye wondering looking for a focal point. 4 Take advantage of the sky: Similar to using an interesting foreground if you have a beautiful sky you can also use the wide-angle to take advantage of it. Fill 1/3 to 1/2 of your frame with the sky and the wide-angle will accentuate it because of the added sense of depth that these lenses create. Of course the foreground still needs to be interesting you can just have less of it in this case. 5 Use Leading Lines: As wide-angle lenses capture so much of the scene it is often easy to lose track of what one is looking at in the resulting photo. This being the case leading lines can be used to draw in the viewer. As wide-angle lenses exaggerate the sense of scale this can also add to the power of the lines. Training yourself to look for lines and using them in your photos with a wide-angle lens can help you create more dramatic images. 6 Shoot Low: Shooting low you can include much of the ground in front of you to guide you up to the subject. Whether a garden or a fountain or an intriguingly cracked road shooting low can provide an interesting subject that can lead the viewer back to the horizon. Because of the extreme width you are using you can shoot from very low close-to-the- ground angles and still fit tall subjects and skies into the frame. 7 Frame the shot: Wide-angle lenses can be used to frame subjects in interesting ways. This can include capturing subjects within whole doorframes or windows for instance or finding other interesting ways that can frame your shot. You may not even notice some of the possibilities until you look through the viewfinder and see the world as the wide-angle lens sees it. 8 Keep people out of the corner: Wide- angle lenses distort the most in the corners so someone in the corner of a photo becomes noticeably distorted. This is particularly true with shorter focal lengths 15mm can distort more than 30mm. In general always keep people near the center of your frame when shooting wide-angle. Otherwise they can appear shorter and wider than they are which is not a good look. 9 Shoot Vertical: There is a tendency when shooting wide-angle to shoot horizontal but interesting results can occur when shooting vertically. Tall buildings can be captured in their entirety for instance or a feet-to-sky perspective can be achieved. All the concerns mentioned above still need to be considered especially distorting vertical lines along the edge of your frame but the results can be quite striking.

Certifications of Weekend workshops and Sunday Photography Courses after completion... CONGRATULATIONS You are our shooting star Keep Clicking Photography Simplified... The eyes have been called the “windows to the soul.” “Nothing could be closer to the truth for portrait photography. You could have the perfect composition and exposure but if the eyes arent sharp the entire image suffers. Seeing eye-to-eye is a great way to make your portraits convey more of the connection you established with the subject. It starts with the photographer making a distinct effort to connect with the subject so they are at ease with the image-making process. This can often include advance research on your portrait subject and his or her interests. it doesnt take talent to capture a solid portrait. It takes skill and the motivation necessary to master those skills. Portrait photography can be dealt with as an equation with just a set of rules and guidelines its possible to take jaw dropping natural light portraits. People tend to forget that a portrait without a real expression does not connect to the viewer. Humankind wants to see genuine emotion and not a posed cheesy smile. This is more important than location light and expensive gear. Photographer here has chosen the subject very nicely the subject has a character the viewer can feel the connection here that photographer has with the subject. “A portrait is not made in the camera but on the either side of it” Edward Steichen Photo Coutsey : Ranjan DDPC Sec B Photo Coutsey : Willington DDPC Sec B Weve all had the experience: Driving through a beautiful landscape you stop at every scenic overlook to make photographs sure to capture the grandeur of what you see. When we look at a landscape our eyes travel over it and selectively focus on the elements that we find appealing. Time is the most important investment you can make in getting good landscape pictures. When you arrive in a place youve never visited before spend time scouting—driving or hiking to different locations finding different vantage points. This can take some practice because you also have to look at where the light will not be falling. For example you might see that the west wall will be beautifully lit in the early morning if the canyon is deep however the east wall will be in such complete shadow that your camera will be capable of rendering it only as a great black blob. Unless this is the effect you want youll either have to modify your composition shoot it later in the day or plan to return on an overcast day when both sides will be photographable. Photographing forests presents a different set of challenges. First think about the character of the forest you want to shoot and the feeling you want to convey in your image. Should it feel dark and brooding or light and airy. As with any photograph find a point of interest. It might be one slightly different tree trunk a path winding through or a splash of color on a flowering vine. Whatever it is compose in such a way to lead the viewer to it. Look for shafts of light penetrating the canopy or one spot on the forest floor directly lit by the sun. Whether you are shooting toward a forest or shooting from inside it look for patterns lines and other compositional elements you can use. Try both wide and telephoto lenses. A wide lens looking up at the trees will make them soar a telephoto will compress a row of trunks. Lie down and look straight up through the branches climb a tree to look down the path. “It is the photographer not the camera that is the instrument.” Eve Arnold Landscape photography is a form of landscape art. Landscapes may be a popular subject among photographers but it takes a lot of mastery patience and a certain frame of mind to capture imagery that will really stir the viewers emotions and mind. When you are taking a landscape photograph try creating a sense of depth by keeping all the different elements of the image in focus. To get to the most obscure landscapes you have to go where there is nothing to guide you. To find such a landscape it is all but necessary to be in a wild location. Painters work by continually applying brush strokes until their piece is complete. This additive process is actually quite different from how photographers compose images. Through the lens were tasked to remove any unnecessary elements in order to best express our vision a method of subtraction that may seem counterintuitive at first. As Paulo Coelho said “Elegance is achieved when all that is superfluous has been discarded and the human being discovers simplicity and concentration: the simpler and more sober the posture the more beautiful it will be.” Photo Coutsey : Willington DDPC Sec B “There are no rule for good photographs there are only good photographs.” Anonymous Photo Review This month. That Year The Blue Marble is a photograph of the Earth taken on December 7 1972 by the crew of the Apollo 17 spacecraft at a distance of about 45000 kilometres. It is one of the most reproduced images in human history. This was the first time the Apollo trajectory made it possible to photograph the south polar ice cap despite the Southern Hemisphere being heavily covered in clouds. The photograph was taken about 5 hours and 6 minutes after launch of the Apollo 17 mission and about 1 hour 54 minutes after the spacecraft left its parking orbit around the Earth to begin its trajectory to the Moon. The photographer used a 70-millimeter Hasselblad camera with an 80-millimeter Zeiss lens. NASA credits the image to the entire Apollo 17 crew—Eugene Cernan Ronald Evans and Jack Schmitt—all of whom took photographs during the mission with the on-board Hasselblad although evidence examined after the mission suggests that Jack Schmitt was the photographer. Apollo 17 was the last manned lunar mission. No human since has been far enough from Earth to photograph a whole-Earth image such as The Blue Marble but whole- Earth images have been taken by many unmanned spacecraft missions. “The Blue Marble” Last clicked by Manned Lunar Mission
