Great! Morning Light

Image
As per my photography experience & experiments, Here I am happy to share my opinion that morning light has no option , No extra photography lighting accessories, softboxes. reflectors etc required to shoot because nature is providing all the ready material to shoot  See the above-posted image of the KINGFISHER, shot in the early morning at Sultanpur Bird sanctuary, INDIA The advantages or greatness of the morning light, It gives you the perfect soft light and less brightness and helps you to take out the details of the photographs. As long as morning light's timing goes at higher and the amount of brightness or intensity started increasing. More brightness can compel to use other photography lighting accessories like diffuser etc. More brightness gives you more contrast. You should very well plan your shoot and must pack-up before the timing means avoid brightness in the light.  If you are looking to capture charisma seriously in your photographs then this artic

Photograph Must SPEAK.

All the photographers work only for the one common Interest/reason, that is none other than 'Photograph Must Speak' "Photographs must communicate so well"  Being a photographer that is our only aim or duty to communicate the message through our photographs. I hope you all agree with this point of view. Few of my students, friends use to call me and wanna know only the camera setting, camera model,  which lens is good etc and never ask to capture meaningful images, But they are right also up to a certain extent because they are all beginners.  Now the question is "How to capture the meaningful images" which help you create a message/story for your viewers through your stunning shots.  Observation - Everything based on the observation like you observe the laugh, smile, anger, sports, human expression, sometimes no face but other body parts, vehicle, train, animals, pets, nature, natural, wild, monument, city etc there are endless subjects ar

A Nightmare, After the shoot when the photographer comes to know about the camera's setting disturbance. When the photographer is ready to edit the images and he found that photographs were shot on the HIGH ISO causing too many grains, Shot on the low shutter speed causing shake, Used incorrect aperture causing background blurred/distracted, incorrect focus etc. One of these settings is enough to spoil your photography assignment or project and sometimes career too.

Never feel dishearten and never think that you cannot be a good photographer if anybody of you faces the setting disturbance in your shoot. Mistakes mak
