shoot for black and white

by Candice Zugich

I absolutely adore black and white images! There’s something so personal, so emotional, so raw about them. black and white imagery tells us a story, a story about us, it pauses life in one shot, it keeps you wanting more.

creating ghostly images

by Mickie DeVries
*originally posted on the Clickin Moms forum here.
I thought I would do a quick tutorial of how I achieved some recent ghostly shots. I think this would be a fun idea for Halloween and I would love to see your photos if you try this!

First you need a tripod. Next you need to figure out your settings. I shot these in manual, but shutter priority mode would probably work great also. What I’m most concerned about with my(…)

embrace the grain

by Emma Wood

It seems as though we spend so much time, effort and money to find the highest definition cameras and the sharpest lenses. We aim for low, or no digital noise (aka electronic noise – usually caused by signal amplification at high ISOs within the camera processing magic). We get the highest resolution of camera we can find and the lowest f-stop capable lenses, so we can shoot at lower ISOs. You may shoot in raw rather than in(…)

low-light and high ISO

by Megan Dill
Winter.  If you’re like me, you work a long day out of the home, departing as the sun is coming up and returning after sundown.  You would think that this would impose extreme limits on your ability to take meaningful daily photographs.  I beg to differ—winter is a wonderful time to push yourself creatively by pushing your camera to extremes by cranking up your ISO!

ISO is one third of the exposure triangle, which is also comprised of aperture(…)
