Digital Photography Tips


Taming The Red Eye Devil!

Red Eye is a common problem with image capturing because of on-camera flash. To avoid it, move your flash off-axis and choose a connecting cord and flash bracket. Then simply bounce the flash off of something like a wall or ceiling. An alternative is to use a remote flash trigger to keep the flash off the camera.

Help! I Lost My Pictues!

After you transfer your digital images from your media card to your laptop or computer, make sure the photos open up and are saved off of the camera’s card before you delete the files. I.E. don’t accidentally delete the images without saving them elsewhere and making sure they are really there first. That can be a bummer, especially with wedding photos or other important 1-time occasions where you can’t do re-takes.

[Sidebar: Try placing your photos in groups by topic or family members. This way sharing and finding becomes a breeze.]

Cameras Need to Eat Too

Always carry along extra batteries, your re-charger and adapter, equipment instructions and an extra media card or two. You never know where you might need your supplies, and don’t want to miss great shots.

Permission For Photos

If you want to use your photos that have people in them, plan ahead and find simple permission forms to print out and stash in your photo bag. To locate forms, search online for “permission for photos form” and customize one for your own company or private brand. Check in local library photography books for a quick one to print out, too, or at a local professional photo shop for other sources.

That Flower Was So! Tiny

Try to get something to compare size with in your photos. For example, instead of just taking a shot of a flower, place your hand in the background as if you’re gently holding or caressing it in the palm of your hand – only without actually touching it.

Well, we’re almost ready to wrap up our short learning series on digital photography. We’ll be back soon with another lesson….
