The Imagination Three Years

When about three years old, his imagination is growing. He began to fantasize about various things. Starting from a fairy tale with all its beauty to the land of the evil witch. Starting from a horse that could fly to the fish that can speak.

It is very reasonable. Each child will get through this. This period was actually not a future that will make us dizzy let alone panic. If we follow properly, this period can be a very beautiful time. Growing child’s imagination while playing with her making a very enjoyable time.

What we have to do is steer well that his fear does not continue into adulthood. Sometimes we even feel that their fears could be used for the fulfillment of our desires. For example, if a child is reluctant to eat, we frighten him by saying that many ants would come if he did not immediately spend their food. Of course this is not right for psychic development.

Thing we can do is to accompany and assured him that we were there and able to protect it. Do not face directly with what he feared. For example, by saying, Well, see for yourself right. This ant is okay? It is often useful, even adding his fear.? We face is imagination, not the real world. Continue reading “The Imagination Three Years”

20 Tips Short Photography

To practice your panning skills, shoot objects moving at normal speeds (people ride motorcycles, for example), use the shutter priority mode and set a maximum shutter speed of 1/30 second, slower is better. Watch your background! – ¶ –
For photographing macro (super close range), activate the Live View feature of your digital camera for easy checking depht of field and focus.
Filter CPL (polarization) are very useful to eliminate reflection of sunlight on water and glass, and also work to improve color of the sky. Do you ever wear sunglasses with polariser? – ¶ –
When photographing babies / young children, make sure you focus on the eyes. Nothing can beat the beauty of the eyes of children. – ¶ –
Megapixels are not the most important feature of a camera, the size of the most important features sensor
For portait photo (face) outdoors, try when the weather is overcast. If not, look for a dim area and not exposed to direct sunlight. Sunlight makes harsh shadows on the face. – ¶ –
When you take pictures in low light conditions and distress using autofocus, switch to manual focus. Features autofocus on camera is usually pretty long sought a focal point in dim conditions. – ¶ – Continue reading “20 Tips Short Photography”

3 Reasons You Do not Need to Fear Photographing With High ISO

We use a very high ISO (above 800) when faced with a situation like this: when the light source available is dim, when we need a high shutter speed, when we do not want to use flash, and when we did not bring a tripod. Concern is greatest when we raise the ISO up above 800 is the emergence of noise, little black spots that usually appear in the final image.
But blessed are you, because it seems to concerns about the emergence of this noise can begin to be eroded. There are 3 reasons good enough so that you can rest easy though using high ISO shooting. What is it? :
Development of Camera Technology
Almost all of the newest generation of SLR cameras have a noise reduction technology (noise reduction) is very reliable, we can shoot up to ISO 1800 and the results are still very viable. To my knowledge, almost all Nikon SLR cameras and Canon output from beginner to pro class grade is very good in getting rid of noise arising from the use of high ISO. Even some quality compact cameras like the Panasonic LX3 (or the latest LX5) apply noise reduction technology very well.

Elements of Composition in Photography: Shape


In a series of earlier compositions, we have discussed the line (line) as one of the constituent elements of the composition of a photograph. Well, let’s move on to the next element: the form (shape).
Basically, the form is more fundamental than the other elements because the shape is the way we give the identification of an object (oh, excuse my words very abstract …). You just can you estimate what ya look like a radio broadcaster based sound you hear, but never see directly you can only guess. You may smell the fragrance of flowers and guess about the type flowers, but without direct form you will never be sure whether you guessed right or wrong.
In principle, the shape gives your photos a distinct identity so that people who see no need to guess. A silhouette image as the photo above is the most obvious example of the form.
Further implementation, geometric shapes also can use as a benchmark in setting up several objects in your photos so your photos will look more dynamic as well organized. Suppose you have to shoot 3 people in a single picture, if you set up the same three high you will get a photo of the rigid and less unsightly. Than if you arrange them to form a triangle then the whole picture you will look more dynamic, balanced and interesting.

Just another example of the geometric arrangement:

Okay, good to experiment with forms in your photos.

Elements of Composition in Photography: Patterns

What Sih Pattern / Pattern That?
Pattern / pattern can be easily interpreted as looping. Repetition here could be a looping shapes, lines, colors, objects or any object, and recurrence may be in the form of regular or slightly irregular. A keen photographer who would be able to take advantage of this loop in a photograph, so the results are not only beautiful but also has a strong appeal to the eye of the beholder.
Where Can Find a Good Pattern For Photographed?

Patterns are everywhere, whether artificial or nature: in a banana leaf, onion you cut, in the conch shell, tiger skin, in the rice field, in tall buildings, in the arrangement of paving blocks, even at home-even you can find the pattern of the ceiling and floor. Good or not a pattern to be photographed is very subjective to be ascertained, as well as other elements of composition: the eye, the level of creativity and hours of flying you decide. It could be a pattern that looks great when photographed from above would look good when photographed from the side. It could be a pattern emerging in rose petals look flat when you use a standard lens will be very dramatic when you take a picture with a macro lens.
The key is to always open your eyes to “detect” patterns that emerge from wherever you are. If an agent always on the alert to detect enemies in disguise, make sure your eyes are always on the lookout observing the patterns may also disguised Continue reading “Elements of Composition in Photography: Patterns”

Photo Tips In Zoo

The zoo is one of the favorite places of photography enthusiasts, perhaps because most of us are fond of animals as objects picture yet feels heavy and troublesome if it should really to the forest, the zoo is the middle road. If you’ve never tried your photography skills at the zoo, then photographing at the zoo must be tested.
Okay, before you actually leave first, we will discuss some tips on photographing at the zoo so that good will your photo results, please:
What you need to Enter Into Camera Bags?
Equipment that I recommend to take a combination of SLR cameras + medium telephoto lens on 85 mm or Super Zoom compact cameras with optical zoom 10-12 times if you have a so-so taken with a macro lens.
This long lens is needed because most animals the animals were placed in the garden a little distance away from the visitors, and often added a wire fence between them. Medium telephoto lens / super zoom can overcome this condition. But if you only have a short lens, do not fret, you can still use it to photograph animal attractions, animals roam benign or even the atmosphere at the zoo itself.
Direct Focus On Eyes
As the saying goes, the eyes are the windows to the soul, to capture the soul of “bestiality” they are clear, focus your shots on the animal’s eyes. If you successfully capture the distinctive look of an animal, your photo will feel more deeply and had a touch of
It Wire Fence
He he … of course the words above just figuratively (I still just love the camera if you get attacked by the Tiger). I mean really, do not let the wire fence that appears in the images you later. Tricks to eliminate wires that are not visible in the photo is this:
Use aperture priority (or manual) Continue reading “Photo Tips In Zoo”

Tips on Photographing HDR


Here are some quick tips photographing High Dynamics Range (HDR), HDR photo that you produce will be better:
Use the bracketing feature available on your digital SLR camera. By using the bracketing feature, the camera will automatically lower the ascending-exposure value (stop) very quickly, much more comfortable than we have busy hands rotating the dial.
Take 3.5 or 7 shots. Most photos in normal conditions resulting HDR of 5 photos with different exposure values and then combined. If you deal with the object images with different brightness are too flashy, take 7 exposures at once so the results even better
Do not vary the aperture value in a series of photo shoot for an object. Set the exposure mode on the position of Aperture Priority (A or Av) to ensure the sharpness of the final HDR photo. If you vary the aperture value, the camera’s focus will also change, so the area becomes inconsistent sharp photo
Use matrix metering or evaluative metering where the camera will measure all the elements in the object image before determining what amount of exposure needed
Use a tripod to ensure the end result is not blurry photo. By using a tripod, our pictures will be sharper due to consistent shots from a catapult to the next. If you have a shutter release, use as well.
If possible, use the RAW format when shooting HDR.

Quick Tips: How to Safely At The Shoulder Drape SLR

If you have an SLR camera users, you are a simple and short tips that lens and your camera more secure. Especially when you put a long lens (telephoto) in the camera body, pay attention to the way you hung the camera on his shoulder.
Note the two pictures below, there is a big difference between the two. In the left image, the front glass element lens sticking out. While the image right, the end face relative lens hidden in the back (sorry) ass.


In my opinion, the way the camera drape like in the picture to the right will make the lens more protected. If you hang a camera like the way the picture on the left, most likely due to lens hit him hard objects that stand out (imagine the lens you hit the wall, wall, door, people who walked passed etc). It would be more secure if you hide the tip of the lens backwards.
Please try. Hide behind the lens (again, sorry) your ass!

Aquarium Photo Tips

You have an aquarium at home? Or you will visit such a giant aquarium at Seaworld? Now try to make the aquarium as images of objects of interest. The challenge of shooting in a glass aquarium is located between the lens and the object image, whereas we want to produce images without the slightest trace of glass. Another challenge is the lack of light.
If all this time you’ve tried to make a picture with the object fish (or plants) in the aquarium and not always satisfactory, try some of these tips:
Use the fastest lens you have. Because the fish in the aquarium tend to move when lighting in aquariums tend to be very less compared to outdoors. Therefore, use the fastest lens you have. Lens with f/2.8 or faster aperture will help.
Buy Rubber Lens Hood. It costs about Rp. 100 thousand, but very rewarding. When photographing an object through the glass, we have to make sure that the distance between the lens and the glass should be as close and as stable as possible. By installing a rubber lens hood, we can make the lens as closely attached to the glass and thus the reflection of the glass will be removed. You can buy this rubber hood here.

If you happen to be an employee, start of the event at the office. Only later moved to larger concerts, music competitions such as regional in nature. Do not jump too high, start small.
Local musical events make us less nervous and help us more familiar with the atmosphere of concert music in general. Large-scale music concerts usually require ID sign the official photographer, so for those of you who are just starting out can be hindered by it.
Recognize the structure of the event.
Try before you leave, we know the outline of the structure of the event. That way we can save energy and concentration, know when to approach and when to leave the stage.
