Photography Tips, Treats, Tricks and Cheats

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?
