Learn & Explore Tip of the Day
Try photographing everyday objects in a unique way. You can do this by using a macro lens or close-up mode, or even put the objects in a location or situation that it’s not normally seen in.
Fill-flash isn’t just for portraits. Sometimes a subject can benefit from a little touch of flash to enhance an image. Most Nikon cameras with a built-in flash have a fill-flash option. If you’ve got an accessory Speedlight, try setting it at minus an f/stop to add just a hint of light.
When you’re shooting in low light, at night or indoors, increasing your ISO will help you get an exposure that is correct and is not too slow for handholding the camera.
For reflections, the best results occur when the reflection pool is shaded and the reflected object is bathed in early or late horizontal light.
Celebrate Hanukah by taking photographs to remember all of the fun your family has during the holiday.
Have a cat or dog that lets you dress them up for the holidays? Pull out your camera and get great photos and videos of them romping around the house while making a pet fashion statement.
Sometimes the clouds can be more interesting than the landscape below, so in this case, compose your image to capture more of the sky, with only a small amount of land in the frame.
If you normally use one lens for everyday shooting, leaving your others at home, plan a day to use only your second lens. It may force you to look at your subjects with a new perspective and could lead to wonderful images.
Not sure which type of microphone to use with your DSLR when capturing video? Here’s an easy analogy to remember: Stereo microphones such as Nikon’s ME-1 are like the wide-angle of mics, the shotgun type of microphone is like the telephoto of mics, and the lavaliere microphone is like the close-up or macro type of mic.
