How To Capture Breath-Taking Photographs With Very Little Means
I know that you spend the daydreaming about the latest model on the market, with such a bright lens, with that Wide Angle or going into macro photography. Normal, it happens to all of us, and there is nothing wrong with occasionally becoming infatuated with something. The problem comes when you stop doing things because you don’t have that something. Because, whether it seems true or not, almost everything can be supplied with a moderate budget or with some imagination.
High Key And Low Key
Do you have a black background and a white background at home? Well, you already can create incredible high and low key portraits. You will be amazed at what can be achieved simply with a couple of cards or a clear wall; I bet many times we could not even distinguish a home image from a studio image. Aren’t you tempted to try?
The bokeh is another simple technique that can give you impressive results. Simply by playing with the same depth of field of your lens (aperture) and with a background containing small lights (a night street, a Christmas tree, garlands, etc.) you can get incredible backgrounds for portraits or objects in the foreground, and add more effect by editing with https://photolemur.com/blog/raw-photo-editing-software.
Another photographic technique that you will love and for which you only need to do it. Playing with slow speeds and with light allows us to record, photographically speaking, the path of light in the image.
Surely you have seen more than once and two wonderful images of waterfalls, rivers, beaches and even skies with the water or the clouds blurred as in a silky blanket. It is what we call silky effect, and it is achieved by working at slow speeds to print the movement of these elements on the image.
