Learn Awesome Photo Techniques
In this post we present useful photographic techniques, for various kinds of photography.
Play With Time
Time-lapse photography offers some pretty amazing opportunities. For starters, star trails—achieved by a long exposure of the night sky—make for beautiful images every time. For the most part, it simply takes patience.
Paint With Light
Lightpainting is similar to time lapse photography, in that it utilizes long exposures to create special effects with light. That said, lightpainting involves you creating the special light patterns with glow sticks, flashlights, or any other source. It’s really fun!
Make Your Own Bokeh
Bokeh—the out-of-focus area of your photos—generally looks like a bunch of basic shapes. Some lenses offer nice smooth circles while others create harsher, angled shapes. If you create your own bokeh, you can make any shape you want. Just take some paper, cut out a shape, and strap it to your lens..
Transplant Your Subjects
Sometimes you’ve got a great location and a great subject, but they’re not in the same place. With photo editing software, that’s no problem. All you need to do is shoot your subject on a green screen and transplant them anywhere you like. Make your own green screen.
Create 3D Images
This easy trick can offer the illusion of a 3D photograph by simply alternating between two frames at a high speed. It’s no amazing feat, but it’s a pretty cool trick that anybody can see without special equipment.
