Learn & Explore Tip of the Day
Spend a day shooting nothing but color. Try to find a subject that is made up of only one color, and fill the frame with it.
When shooting video, remember to capture plenty of B-roll or supporting footage that you can use to edit throughout the scenes of your main story.
When photographing people, watch their expressions and capture the emotion.
You can set your Nikon D-SLR's AE-L/AF-L button to work in different ways depending on your shooting needs. Check your manual to see how to set the AE-L/AF-L button on your specific camera.
Most NIKKOR lenses with Vibration Reduction have two settings, Normal and Active. Normal should be used when your subject is moving but you are not. Active should be used when your subject is moving and you are moving as well (on a boat, car, or train).
To keep a fast moving subject in focus when shooting sports, use the Continuous AF mode.
Always have a camera with you, so you'll never miss a photo taking opportunity.
You don't always need to use software on a computer to add creative touches to your photos. Many Nikon digital cameras have special effects and creative modes. Some can be found in the retouch menu, others in Special Effects menus. Check your camera's manual for specific details.
If you enjoy sharing your images online, check out the Nikon cameras with built-in Wi-Fi or those models that use the WU-1a or WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapters. You'll be able to get great photos using a Nikon camera and easily post the photos online.
Most Nikon D-SLRs have a diopter that can be adjusted, allowing you to fine tune the focus of the camera's viewfinder. If you normally wear glasses, you may be able to adjust the diopter to use the camera without your glasses.
