Photography Tips, Treats, Tricks and Cheats

Recommended Posts

Another tip, very easy to do...Pol filters can be used in pretty much any lighting situation, so try to keep it on your lens as much as possible to help prevent damage to the camera lens.

I will have to get one of those filters. I removed my old filters as I thought they were degrading the images, but they were extremely cheap filters.

This is a great method that I frequently use and Digital Photography School does a great job of explaining it in simple terms - The Fibonacci Rule in photography....  http://digital-photography-school.com/divine-composition-with-fibonaccis-ratio-the-rule-of-thirds-on-steroids. This really is one of the key methods to use for photography, bringing a nice sense of balance to photos.

Just bought a new 32 GB class 10 card so I can take a bunch of RAW photos. What size card do you have Cindy?

 

Going to get a couple extra batteries, how many extra batteries do you all carry?

How many RAW photos can you fit on your card? I have two batteries and am thinking of getting a few more too.

Sorry, I just remembered you just got your new camera, so you probably haven't had a chance to fill up your memory card yet! :doh:

LOL! Keep in mind that I can take over 200 photos in a mere hour's time, plus, If I am going to be out for a long while taking photos I switch over to just fine high quality .jpegs

So true Cindy! Years ago, before digital cameras became what they are today, I took a couple classes at College, but it was with the old film type of cameras. Maybe it's time to take some classes in order get up to speed with digital cameras.

Homework for you photography geeks.  This is my primary camera: Canon SX30IS.   Works great for distance photos, but that huge 35X zoom is useless where I want it most.  In the mines.  What I need in the mines is to leave the shutter open longer, but anything beyond the auto settings is over my head. 

 

Could someone look up the details of my camera and let me know what I need to do to get the shutter to stay open?

      If you would like to see more of my photos, here is the link to my flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/songdogstudios/albums
      Otherwise, I thought I'd post a couple here, for fun. The last two are from my phone, but still show a bit of some adventures.

      Hello, all. I am new here, so this is my obligatory first post. I live in Oregon and have been an explorer and mountaineer most of my life. However, in recent years, I haven't had as much time as I would like to get out there on multi-day adventures, and have been limited to day trips around the PDX region. I am always looking to hear about any abandoned mines, ghost town updates, and abandoned buildings to photograph. I have been a rockhound most of my life, but only recently decided to add precious metals (namely gold) to my list of things to prospect for. Of course, I don't expect anyone to share their spots, but if anyone has any useful info in this regard, I'd love to hear it. I am hoping to make adventuring a more regular thing, including blogging my trips reports (which I intend to crosspost here). 
      I am also beginning my search for a better adventure vehicle, so am looking for suggestions there, as well. I have a knack for getting small cars into places they should not be (and even getting them back out again), but am definitely looking for something more rugged for my next purchase (I have experience with Subaru, Toyota, and Jeep, but it's been a number of years since I had anything with 4WD). 
      My dogs go with me everywhere, so they get their own intro. Mesa is the australian shepherd and D'Argo is the belgian malinois. Both are in training for scent work (mantrailing, nosework, and truffle/antler hunting) and backpacking, and D'argo is also learning to be my primary method of defense (the secondary being a gun, of course).

      Many of us enjoy photographing flowers, but not many know exactly what they are called or how to identify them. After a while it gets annoying have label a photo as "pretty yellow flower" or "fluffy white wildflower." Fortunately there are a number of good to excellent sites on the internet to help with identification.
      MyWildflowers.com offers one of the easiest advanced search tools: http://www.mywildflowers.com/identify.asp
      Healthy Home Gardening also has a fairly easy search tool: http://healthyhomegardening.com/Plant_Identifier.php?m1=3
      The USDA site: http://plants.usda.gov/java/
      The Better Homes & Garden Plant Encyclopedia: http://www.bhg.com/gardening/plant-dictionary/
      Burke Museum of Natural History & Culture: http://biology.burke.washington.edu/herbarium/imagecollection.php?Page=plantkey.php

      Sounds like the National Forest Service may start issuing fines if you take photos on "public" land. Read more here. What do you think?

      Seems an artist collects the dead animals and sets them up to photograph them. Kinda cool?
