THE THINGS TO THINK ABOUT WITH : “SPRING FEVER” PHOTOGRAPHY

 

GOT SPRING FEVER?
WANT TO GO OUT AND TAKE PHOTOS?
 
 
For most photographers, or for most people with any cameras, including cell phones, the excitement of spring brings out the cameras for sure.  Any amount of spring brings out the cameras.  Whether it is the beautiful spring flowers that come out for such a short time, or the new refreshment of blossoms on the trees.  The one thing that happens with spring, in most places, is that most people don’t realize is that this spring time “thing” is short. 
 
Let’s take a look at some special photo tips on how to get the most out of “spring time” photography:
 
1- SPRING FLOWERS ARE ALIVE AND WELL FOR A VERY SHORT TIME

The most common flowers that bloom in the spring usually own do full bloom for approximately 2 to 3 weeks, depending on the flower.  The crocus, the daffodil, the tulip are the most common of these flowers.  These are the flowers that are most highly photographed in the spring.   There are flowers, of course that do come out in the spring, that are perennial, but, do not come out quite as quickly and as soon as these above mentioned flowers.  These flowers are always beautiful, and seem to be the ones that bring excitement to those who love flowers.  They are quickly entered into flower arrangements into the flower shops because they bring such vibrant colors.   And photographers go crazy about photographing these lovely flowers.  The main tip to photographing these flowers is to try to get down to the level of the flower.  Mostly people want to see the flower from an angle that is different than what we see every day, from our eye level.  See how much more beautiful it is at ground level.  They are just wonderful.

2- LANDSCAPE PHOTOS TAKE ON A NEW MEANING IN THE MORNINGS AND EVENINGS:

The difference in temperature between the ground and the air will sometimes create an eerie fog or mist in the early morning or evening.  If you are in the right place and the right circumstance, your chance of capturing this type of photograph is even greater in Spring.  The light coming through trees is mesmerizing.  Of course you may have to go out of your way to find this kind of lighting, and this type of mist….. like where there is natural water and dampness to make this happen, but, it is so worth it.

3- DON’T BE AFRAID TO TRY DIFFERENT THINGS

Sring is the time to try new things as well.  You are already excited to get out and take new pictures, why not try new angles.  If you are out in the middle of the forest, and there is new foliage in the trees, then try the shot of shooting straight up and capturing the converging trees.  Also, try close-ups of new things that you see, like blossoms on trees:

Another thing that usually comes at spring time that seems to bring the cameras out, is the beautiful portraits of little children in their new Easter clothes.  This seems to be a great time to get wonderful portraits of children:

So many wonderful things to enjoy in Spring.  Please take advantage of the wonderful photo opportunities of this season.

THE EYE OF A PHOTOGRAPHER

THE EYE OF A PHOTOGRAPHER

What does a photographer see that the average person not see?  Do they see something different?  What do they look for when they see an image?  Why do their photos turn out better than yours, when you take the same picture?   Here is a perspective from a professional photographer who thought about this a lot, and realized that there is something to this.  Check this out:

ARTICLE BY:  JOAQUIN DUENAS

And originally published in:  PictureCorrect

The world looks different to a photographer than it does to everyone else. Why can a photographer capture flat images and turn them into art? The eye of a photographer sees light, details, shadows, highlights, shapes and how they interact with each other.

“37 of 365” captured by Chris Becker

The world looks different if you see it with both eyes rather than with only one eye. Close an eye and look at an object. Do you see what I mean? Well, by closing an eye before taking a shot, you will have a pretty good idea of what you can expect from your image.

Photographers explore the light and texture. Light is probably their most important tool. Photographers are intrigued by the way the nature of light affects the way things are seen. Intensity, direction, and type of light offer the photographer a potential for visual exploration. Photographers have mastered how to use the rules of composition and know when to break them. Photography is a process.

“The Rays of Day” captured by PictureSocial member Robert Davis

Our eyes work similar to a camera. Here are some facts that you might even find amusing: Our eyes have a resolution of around 560 megapixels. They can differentiate around 10 million shades of colors. The ISO of an eye is not great; it can be measured at around 800, and in low light, our eyes do not see color. The equivalent of the aperture would be f/3.5 with a focal length of 20mm. The great thing about our eyes is that they have auto white balance, auto ISO, and a very high dynamic range.

Some photographers have the eye when they’re born, but most of us develop it after practice and training. It can take several years to begin to notice things differently.

A photographer doesn’t need expensive equipment to take great photos. The best camera gear in the world is not going to help a photographer see or be aware of his or her surroundings. It’s all about the art of seeing. With a photographer’s eye, you see things in a way that others don’t. That different way of seeing makes an impression on the people viewing our images.

“Repetition” captured by PictureSocial member Mohammad Amziry bin Roslan

A photographer thinks in photography concepts and sees in terms of photography. If you enjoy taking pictures, your attitude will show up in the final image.

Everything has the potential to be captured. It’s all about picturing an image in your head and making it happen. The more you do it, the better you get at it.
