Dog photography

September 10th, 2013

Pixsellpix.com - Dog photography...simple techniques to achieve great photos of your dog every time...WARNING...this blog will have you in stitches at the end.


Very easy things to remember when you are out to do your dog photography...just follow these steps for great results EVERY TIME.


Natural Light.


Even if your dog is an "indoor dude" do try to get him/her outside, as natural light will bring out the best colours/textures in the coat...ideal day would be a bright...ish overcast day, to avoid harsh strong sunlight. If you have only really harsh light to cope with, then find some open shade under a tree. Failing this, if you can't get your pouch to go outside, then go up to a window for some natural light there. One more tip with the light/dog photography...have your dog facing the light source, even if the sun is behind the clouds, you will still get some light reflected in the eyes.



Next to remember...Eyes.


O.k. before you even start to shoot...think about your camera...where is your focus point in your viewfinder...centre, to the right/left...you need to control the point of focus onto the eyes of the dog...next...how much do you want in focus, this will determine your aperture...wide open F= 1.8 - 2.8 for a small depth of field and a nice Bokeh... or F=8 - 11 to have everything in focus. IF your dog will stay still for longer then 3 seconds...manual focus is a good thing...make sure your diopter is set correctly though.



Personality is very important part of your dog photography.


A really crucial part of dog photography is bringing out the personality of the dog in your photos...which is obvious i know and easy to do with your OWN DOG because you know what makes your dog "tick"...however...when you are photographing someone elses dog...a complete stranger...you will need to ask what the dog enjoys doing best. For example...my Sons dog Evie, just goes mad for water...in this element you can capture the texture of the coat and some really good action shots that will make the personality of the dog shine.




[caption id="attachment_1040" align="aligncenter" width="2000"]dog photography BRING OUT THEIR PERSONALITY WITH WHAT THEY LOVE DOING...THIS IS EVIE AT HER FAVOURITE PLACE...ENTWISTLE RESERVOIR...DOING WHAT SHE LOVES BEST...WATER AND STICKS[/caption]

Avoid using flash with your dog photography


Flash can be very distracting for any animal and could result in some amateurish "red - eye" shots and distort the colour balance and shadows. If you have to use flash...then cover/diffuse the flash source...Ohhh and BTW, if you want see more of my photography "little secrets"...pop your head around this corner.


photography tricks



Try different positions to take your shots.


You will find new inspiration to your dog photography when go down to their level.


Don't worry about getting your knees dirty...it's a different world down there at dog level...you will see things as they do and the difference will be rewarded in your dog photography...your knees can have a wash later... better still...take a shot of the dog AND your knees...there's a story to tell for the future.



Last thing to consider is to get your hands on a PRIME lens.


A prime lens can make a HUGE difference to your images. Don't concern yourself with focal length, just use what you can...wide angle is great for close-up shots...telephoto is great for blurring the background. Even a standard 50mm prime lens of an old film camera makes an ideal focal length (equivalent to 75mm...approx) for portraits and usually the old prime optics are not to be underestimated...albeit you will have to manual focus, but i use my dads Takumar lenses from 1973 and the 55mm Takumar is better then my Nikon...and cheaper.



Lastly...one more tip for your dog photography.


Most important...in fact THE most important thing about dog photography...have a laugh. This next video will just have you crying with laughter..especially if you own a dog yourself, you will relate to the dog here...soooo, go and get some tissues for your eyes and glasses...another pack of biscuits...don't forget your brew...and have a laugh at this.

Cat photography

September 10th, 2013

Capture some great cat photos by being cheeky and creative...knowing the basics.


Great cat photos are more chance than planned as some cats spend most their time asleep and while they are awake, you are asleep...however...although all pussies like a play, the most important tool you have is FOOD!


[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0ffwDYo00Q[/youtube]


I have a favourite's "list" of things i love talking about...favourite things relevant to photography i mean, techniques and cameras (especially the ones i can't afford...hint, hint), but doing todays blog on pussies will have to be at the top.


When cats are awake, they have one thing on their mind (like us fellas) and thats food and generally, an uncooperate cat will do ANYTHING for it's favourite tit-bit.



This is the time to start taking your cat photos with some small treats and not too much at once...remember...a full pussy will just go back to sleep.




For great cat photos, get to their level.


Not just on your knees either...get on the floor, even on your back if you have to and use the tit-bits to draw your cat closer to your chest, or on your chest and use a wide angle lens...from kittens to cats, most pussies enjoy a bit of adventure.


cat photos



Hide yourself somewhere.


Hide under a table and start making a noise with a toy, or a matchbox, so the cat has to come and find you..leave a trail of small treats leading to your hideaway, then shoot, shoot, shoot...keep shooting to get your best cat photos...dump the one's you don't need later...AND...don't keep chimping, you are wasing time. Get your camera setting right before you start.



Low light.


If your old Tom is an indoor puss, then the likelyhood is you will have low light to counter act or your shutter speed will be sluggish and your cat photos will be blurred. So...two choices here, crank up the ISO on your camera till you get a shutter speed of at least 250sec, or use some flash. Be subtle with your flash though.


photography tricks


Turn your flash to it's lowest setting. Ohhh, for more tips like this just go here.


If you have a POP-UP flash...tape some paper over it, or a piece of cloth to diffuse the flash and avoid using flash direct at the cats face, or your cat photos will have the "red-eye".


If you able to swivel the flash head, turn it up to the ceiling or side-wall, to bounce the light...this will also diffuse the harsh flash.




Outdoor cat photos.


Most pussies of all ages like to play outside and feel the breeze through their whiskers, so choose a shaded area and recheck your settings BEFORE you start shooting and not during your cat photos. Just keep your shutter speed up and your lens at about 2/3 stops from widest setting and keep shooting.




Cats love to play.


Try and think of creative things to entertain your pussy...like...has your wife been shopping recently and bought a big hat for a future wedding??? Yeah...thats the one...the one with a big feather in it...cats love to shred feathers and it will make some great cat photos.




Cats and water don't mix?


Actually some pussies love a shampoo and the props you can use to get great cat photos is just endless..try black and white instead of colour.



More great cat photos.


Imagine the great cat photos you can get by taking your old Tom to the shops...FISH SHOPS and Aquariums...choosing their own treats.



Borrowed interest for your cat photos.



If you have a white cat, "borrow" a black cat and vice versa to capture some great cat photos this way, using opposites.


Likewise, another "opposite" is a dog... be a bit careful with this one, or may need a referee. What about someone the cat knows...say an old lady next door with your 2month old kitten...face to face...you have an opposite attraction straight away "old and young".



Have fun and don't get too serious.


clever cat

Best underwater photography - pixsellpix

September 10th, 2013


Underwater photography is an awesome experience. Have a go with a GoPro Hero 3.


This exciting underwater photography blog will give you a fantastic insight into a different world of creative photography. It doesn't matter if you are just using a point and shoot Canon Powershot D20, or a dedicated underwater camera...the excitement, fun, drama and creativity are exactly the same. Nikon, Canon, Pentax and Olympus have made it easy to enjoy underwater photography with their pocket friendly, waterproof cameras. However before we go into details with these compacts, lets see how the pro's do it.



How the pro's approach underwater photography.



O.k. back down to earth now with 6 of the best affordable compacts available for underwater photography.


1. The best of the test was the Canon Powershot D20 because of the oversized buttons, as they give you a fantastic advantage over a normal compact.


2. Nikon Coolpix AW 100 was also an impressive camera.


3. Pentax WG2-GPS


4. Fujifilm Finepix XP150


5. Panasonic Lumix FT4


6. Olympus TG-820


All great cameras for underwater photography, but the Canon's oversized buttons, won the day for me. For a full review of the best stack up for 2013.



Top tips for successful underwater photography.


underwater photography




  1. Don't chase the fish...you will just end up with a lot of dissappointing, blurred, tail shots.

  2. Start out with static objects like corals and wrecks.

  3. Get down as low as possible.

  4. Get as close as possible and then closer, the less water between you and the subject, the clearer the image.

  5. As in normal photography, take your time and use the rule of thirds to compose your frame. Try exaggerating diagonal lines across the frame.

  6. When you are comfortable to shoot some moving subjects, let them come to you and create a contrasting background.

  7. Shoot slighty upwards and go for head shots, focusing on the eyes.

  8. Creat a sense of scale by using a model. This will successfully show a small fish as really small (using a finger for scale).

  9. Shooting close to the sea bed, be careful not to kick up sand and sediment.

  10. Whether you are diving deep or just snorkling, you need to control your balance to achieve sharp photos ( more tips on this in the PADI section).



Basic rules if you are using a compact camera.



1 Get your camera set up the night before, don't try and figure it out on the boat.


2 - Cover the front of the housing directly in front of the internal flash with duct tape when adding an external strobe that is optically fired, otherwise you will still get backscatter from the internal flash.


3 - Make sure you understand the focusing distance of your camera in and out of macro mode. Use macro mode when you are within the macro focusing distance.


4 – If you use an external flash, make sure you place it as far away from your housing as possible, and your internal flash is blocked, in order to reduce backscatter.


5 – Bring a dive light with you to help your camera auto-focus.


6 – If you turn your flash off, either manual white-balance your camera, or set it to underwater mode


7 - Don't use digital zoom.


For people using only a compact camera and internal flash:


8 - The lower the visibility, the closer to the subject you must be to avoid backscatter.


9 - Avoid using the flash when shooting more than 3-4ft away for better colors in your underwater photos.


10 - When not using the flash, make sure you use manual white balance mode.


11 - When using the flash, make sure white balance is set to auto.


12 - Look into using wet lenses for a wider range of focal lengths.



When you feel confident to take your underwater photography further, i highly recommend a PADI licence.


An PADI open water divers course, usually starts in the local swimming pool, teaching you invaluable skills you will find essential in open water.


Clearing your mask when it fills with water...changing your tanks under water and general familiarisation with your equipment and new surroundings. All this, just to do some underwater photography? Worth every penny and every second, in my book.


Just briefly, my own experience with PADI and underwater photography. Like a fool, i decided to start my PADI course in preparation for the spring, but January/ February is not a time i would recommend...however, at the end of January after completing my basic "pool" training, i was ready for the open water course. Having a conversation with my instructer i asked "surely it will be too cold to go diving at Devil's Bridge today???"..."Rubbish"...my instructor bellowed..."warm as toast old boy!!!" Not exactly convinced by his confidence, i sat with my bare arse on the freezing grass, putting on my freezing rubber suit. After spitting into my mask, i edged towards the water and slid into the dark waters....jesus...it was freezing...the lying B###$&D=.


My first shot came right out of the blue...a salmon...a 10 pound fish collided with my head and knocked my mask off. This is where your training in a nice warm pool comes in.


My second experience was at Coniston Water Cumbria, a lake made famous by Donald Campbell, killed in his Bluebird whist attempting the water speed record. All we had to do was go down the line attached to a buoy about 20 metres with a "buddy" and take some shots. The current underneath the surface was so strong, and kicked up so much silt, you could not see your hand. I momentarily let go of the line to adjust my mask and i was gone...completely disorientated, i had to surface to get my bearings. I was 50 metres away from the buoy, swimming against the current was useless, so i had to cut a 90 degree line towards the shore and abandon my underwater photography.



Basic control skills for underwater photography.



Just in case some of you underwater photography needs a bit of tweeking, don't panick...this vid will explain how you can save a photo disaster.


To re-cap on all the points pixsellpix have made on underwater photography, enjoy this really great, relaxing vid and a reminder not to forget black and white underwater photography for impact. For some of the best underwater cameras and equipment, take a look at these beauties. For a more conservative pocket, have a look down here.



Time to put your flippers up, raid the cookie jar and watch this last video to see if you have Bean learning how NOT to do it.

Capture the drama in Landscape photography

June 29th, 2013

Capture the drama in Landscape photography


Landscape photography, run for cover


Capturing great drama with landscape photography is sometimes luck, as well as careful planning and the unpredictable.


Weather is one of the most unpredictable things we can encounter with landscape photography. You can plan your landscape photography around the weather by watching the forecast, which unfortunately can be a little inaccurate. You can leave your landscape photography to chance and try and get into the right place at the right time, like sunsets and dawn. But no-one could have predicted what happened on the 25th June this year at Izola, this is a brief story about this day.




[caption id="attachment_3134" align="aligncenter" width="573"]Landscape photography Run for cover[/caption]

Nothing could have prepared us for this.


One hour before taking these shots, i was snorkling, watching the fish swimming around and generally larking around with crabs on the sea bed, while the warm sea lapped up the rocks. Crabs are incredibly brave (or stupid), i mean the size of me trying to pick up this crab, yet despite it's feeble size, it turned and waved it's claws at me like some crazed Samurai warrior.



It was that hot, you could not sit down on a bench or a rock without burning your bum. All the boats where out in the bay and everything was peaceful.


Suddenly, within a minute, i had goose bumps all over, the water started to turn really cold. I just thought is was me at first, like had i been in the water too long as usual. Anyway i decided it was getting too uncomfortable and swam towards the shore.



The Panick


I stood on the rocks soaking up some heat from the sun when everything changed.


This "wind" just came from nowhere. I looked towards the dark horizon and could immediately see the "panick". All the boats where making a dash from this horrendous storm into the safety of the Marina ( i mean FULL SPEED). There had obviously been an alarm raised by the coastguard. People were running for cover "everywhere", it was quite scary, so i headed for the safety of a bar where i could protect myself behind a double vanilla ice-cream, after i captured the moment for my landscape photography.



Within minutes, the scene darkened further.


[caption id="attachment_3136" align="aligncenter" width="502"]Lanscape Eye of the storm, Izola[/caption]

The noise was incredible! In the Marina, all the rigging from the tall yachts was humming, whinning, creaking and whistling from the wind. While doing our landscape photography, we where laughing and mimicking all the noises.

Like this but 3 times as loud.





10 minutes later, the sun was back out, blue skies and what storm? Where did that freak storm come from and where did it go, who knows but i managed to capture it for my landscape photography

Beautiful

April 28th, 2013

Beautiful


Creating a beautiful image.


To create a beautiful image, doesn't necessarily mean you have to work with a beautiful model.


Last week i was in Trieste, where i checked in to a railway museum. My idea that i would get some interesting shots by investing some time into history opened a huge barn door of creative opportunites.


The annoying thing about discovering new things, is that it was not new at all. I have walked past this place in Trieste many times, but have never "seen" it. I just happened to look over this wall (my nosey nature) and there she was, a beautiful, nicely preserved railway station, bursting with magnificent yet derelict steam locomotives...perfect.




[caption id="attachment_2913" align="aligncenter" width="458"]beautiful beautiful[/caption]

Good bad and the ugly


The good thing about investigating old and derelict places like this museum in Trieste, is you get closer to some things that normally you would have to keep a safe distance from. Everyone has seen a steam engine from a distance and thought nothing of it, but when you are stood right next to one of these beautiful monsters, the sheer size of them is impressive.


The bad part of going around derelict places is safety. Some of these places can be a danger, with rotting floors, collapsing ceilings, so watch where you putting your feet, take a cell phone with you and best (if you can) get permission.


Your subject doesn't have to be beautiful to make an impact. You can turn something ugly and uninteresting into something else by concentrating on details. Turn an object into an abstract and exaggerate with black and white or PS.




[caption id="attachment_2917" align="aligncenter" width="502"]Choo Choo Choo Choo[/caption]

Derelict buildings


Some derelict buildings used to be beautiful in their own right when they were operational, like Art Deco buildings with spiral stairways, yet most people just walk by every day without a second thought.


However, you are not "most people" you are a photographer and artist. Just because you don't make a fortune at photography, doesn't mean that you won't make a buck one day...i mean look at me, i started with nothing AND have managed to hang on to most of it.



Details and flashlight


Once you are inside a derelict building, get the overall atmosphere and size of the place and head for details with a flashlight, cobwebs are the usual stuff, but go for architectural details too with ceilings, windows, doors, handles and abandoned furniture. Take a pod for some long exposures. Bracket your exposures for some HDR images later...all been done before i know, BUT hey-ho HDR images sell. A wide angle lens is a must also.



Scrap yards and old barns


Many scrap yards have some beautiful examples to capture and are easy to access, especially if you give the owner "dodgy Bob" a couple of bucks for a beer. If you have an interest in cars anyway, this will be a natural subject for you.


Old barns are my favourite places. Hard to imagine some of the things just lying around farm yards were once someone's pride and joy, used every day, then one day something happened and that tractor just got abandoned and forgotten.


Another thing that struck my thoughts is that one mans rubbish is another mans joy, i should have made an offer to buy this tractor, then sell it on ebay....dream on.




[caption id="attachment_2919" align="aligncenter" width="502"]Exhausted Exhausted[/caption]

Just because it's been abandoned


This does not mean that it will be there for ever, so this is your opportunity to record some history. Find out some history about the building, landmark or car you are photographing. Having an intimate knowledge of the subject will reflect in your images for sure. This information could mean a twist in the story or headline of your image.



One man's meat is another man's poison


What do you consider to be a beautiful image? This questions your personality and interests in life. Look deeper, you may find your niche.


Make it personal with whatever your interests are. There will be beautiful things that you walk past every day, but you won't see them until one day you will "see" it. Finding your niche with photography is THE key to your success. Focusing on something you are knowledgable about will make your niche easier to work with and it's usually right under your nose.




[caption id="attachment_2922" align="aligncenter" width="502"]good vintage good vintage[/caption]

Ugly Betty


When you create something beautiful and inspiring out of an "ugly Betty", it inspires your creativity. You can make something humerous out of using these two opposites, or you can use a classical approach and one day discover a niche.



Coming to the end of National humour month


As we are approaching the end of funny month, i declare this day 25th April 2013 National Fart Day (NFD). Today, you can part with your fart, parp with your harp to your hearts content and if someone objects, just tell 'em pixsellpix says it's cool to be an NFD aficionado for today. The same will apply for tomorrow and the day after that and so on.
