READ AND WRITE: INTRODUCTION TO USING STROBES

The three major light equipment are the light sources themselves, grips or stands that support the lights, and modifiers that control the spread of light. Theirs two type of professional studio light kits, first the kit with the flash head and the monolight kit. The ‘best’ flash head for studio photography is ‘The Bowens XMS1000 flash head’ for both amateurs and seasoned professionals alike. Each power pack is different theirs symmetric and asymmetric power packs. The power pack that allows the user to vary the power supply to different flash heads is the asymmetric power pack. And the power pack splits power equally between multiple flash heads is the symmetric power pack. Monolights are most of the time desired for their portability. It’s more useful if you get a strobe light that lets you removed the reflector. Which then lets you attach different kinds of light modifiers. Reflective umbrellas and softboxes are the most common used type of light modifiers. Reflective umbrellas are used to get more light hitting the subject. The light flies from the strobe that hits inside the umbrella then reflects back to the subject. The gold umbrellas give a more warm tone. And the white one gives a bigger space of light that’s being reflected. If you want a more efficient and a light that’s more narrow you should use the sliver lined umbrella. If you want more control get a softbox its more controllable. The reason being is because the light being spread is more contained and with the umbrella light is spilled more like on the walls and everything surrounding the subject.

HDR photography

 

 

 

What is HDR?

HDR brings out the deepest shadows and the brightest highlights of a scene. This tool is useful for outdoor locations and interior real estate images.

My photo came out very colorful. I made sure tp saturate the clouds. I tried making it realistic as possible. I used clouds that I thought matched the pictured. I wanted to go for the pinkish color. I think it really stood out to me. I like how there is a lot in the picture. Like the trees, cars and even the mountains. I think I did a great job.

Why Is Photography Important?

Photography is important because you can capture the saddest, most meaningful, happy moments in your life. Another reason photography is important is because you can meet new people that share the same interest in photography like you and have fun. You can travel all around the world and just take photos of things you like. You can shoot a scenery you saw and look back at it years later when it might be gone but you still have a picture to look at. Photography can also show the history of the world. In photography the picture can tell stories. Those are some reasons why I think photography is important.

lenses read and write

  1. All camera systems offer a dizzying selection of lenses.
  2.  focus on what you plan to shoot
  3. Less expensive lenses will generally have variable apertures
  4.  all major camera and lens manufacturers offer a variety of focal lengths to satisfy most budgets.
  5. More expensive lenses have a fixed aperture
  6. Wide angles give an expansive view
  7. Wide angles are also handy in tight areas, like small rooms, cars, caves, etc
  8.  wide-angle lenses have the potential to drastically change your photography
  9. Standard zoom lenses are great walkaround lenses
  10. standard zooms tend to cover moderate wide-angle focal lengths all the way down to a medium telephoto
  11. prime lenses offer just one focal length, such as 35mm, 50mm, or 85mm
  12. So a standard prime falls somewhere in that 35mm to 85mm standard range
  13. the most popular standard lens was a standard prime: the 50mm
  14. a prime does force you to think more about composition and point of view, simply because it can’t zoom
  15. And prime lenses also tend to be cheaper than optically-equivalent zooms
  16. Telephoto lenses get you close to a subject without actually approaching them
  17. The most popular telephotos seem to be various flavors of 70-300mm or 70-200mm
  18. Telephoto zooms allow you to stand back when the subject isn’t quite as approachable or when your subject might be feeling overwhelmed by the presence of the camera
  19. Telephoto lenses also compress distance, making everything appear closer together, as opposed to wide-angle lenses, which distort perspective and make things look separate.
  20. telephoto lenses are also excellent for sports, nature, and wildlife photography

I think this picture is very nice and creative. It plays with angles because the camera is shooting from the bottom. The camera angle shooting from the bottom makes the girl look bigger and taller on the shadow. It makes her feet look huge as well. You can see everything around her and nothing is out of focus. In the picture she is walking on a trail, but because the camera is shot from below her. This picture looks really nice and is a good use of angles. It makes you notice what is closest to the picture.
