Learn Photo To Art Techniques From The Experts

Digital photography isn't always as easy as it looks.  Everyone has a digital camera these days.  As a matter of fact you have to go to a specialty shop now to even find film cameras.

The freedom of not having to buy and carry film can hinder your art of photography.  Take better digital pictures by following a few simple steps.  

This digital photography article on ideal placement of background objects can get you started in the right direction.  My friend, Amy Renfrey, wrote the article just for my readers.  Click the image to read for yourself.

In today's digital world the term black and white photography takes on a whole new meaning.  You are no longer limited to creating either color or black and white.

Now have fun with taking a color photo and turn it into black and white from your home computer.  Or get really wild and put one special flower in a black and white photo.

This effect is so popular you may have seen it used in commercials.  The colored object in your photo stands out and looks almost like a 3D pictures.  So is it color or is it black and white, well maybe a little bit of both.

Almost every digital camera includes a macro setting.  This setting is generally indicated by a little flower icon on your camera.  Macro digital photography can be another way of focusing on a particular subject.

Digital cameras are so smart today.  They will automatically give details of the flower or any close up subject while putting everything else just slightly out of focus.  

Take care though when using the macro setting.  It is very easy to capture the details of the flower in the background when you were really trying to focus in on the one in front.  Although this can sometimes be a cool effect, it may not be what you were aiming for.
