Photography Tips: How To
Take Good Photos With Any Camera
We get photos for different
individuals who use different cameras in different lights. We are adding
this section to this website to help you take better photos. If you
are taking photos in good light, most cameras will shoot good photos.
However when the light is dull or artificial, the quality of photos
can be very different with different cameras. Different cameras react
differently to different lights because they have different logic to
process warmth of the light. This is called While Balance.
Here are some tricks to get
more natural colors in your photos.
White Balance is essentially
the color temperature of the light, and most cameras provide some sort
of functionality to control the 'color' the shots they are recording.
Some White Balance tricks:
1. Always start with Auto
(AWB). The Auto White Balance (AWB) setting tells the camera to set
the white balance automatically. This is a good place to start. Take
a photo in a new situation or a place. If the photo turns out well in
your preview, then there is probably no need to further adjust the white
balance. Or, when taking photos outdoor, try with Cloudy setting. This
normally gives warm nice colors in outdoor photos.
2. The Auto While Balance
doesn't give you accurate colors, here are some tricks. If your picture
has red or orange tint, the Tungsten setting (usually a light bulb icon)
adds blue to the photo to compensate. Regular (tungsten) light bulbs
give off an orange tint, so this is a good setting to use indoors when
photographing under incandescent lights.
3. If your picture has greenish
tint in it, use Fluorescent setting (usually a fluorescent bulb icon)
which adds magenta into the photo to compensate for the green tint given
off by most fluorescent light bulbs. Use this setting indoors under
4. If your photo has Blue
tint, the Cloudy setting (usually a cloud icon) warms the photo up by
adding orange to compensate for the blue tint given off by clouds. Use
this setting when photographing outdoors in cloudy or overcast situations.
