Focus On Taking Amazing Photos
If you’re serious about taking better digital photos, then you’ll also need to be serious about making sure you have all the tools you need. After you’ve chosen the perfect DSLR camera, the next step is to gear up with the lenses, flashes, and filters from Nikon, Sigma, Canon, Sony, Samsung, and Olympus that’ll give you all the creative versatility you could ever want.
The right lens can make all the difference in adding an element of creativity and imagination to your photography. Wide angle lenses increase your camera’s field of vision, giving you a perspective that packs more detail into a single shot. Fisheye lenses are a specific type of wide angle lens, giving your image a slightly distorted view that emphasizes curves. A telephoto zoom lens is your weapon of choice when your subject is far away, like snapping a shot of the first bird of spring on a tall tree branch. On the other end of the scale, a macro lens gives you the ability to take stunning close-up shots of small subjects, capturing an incredible amount of detail in a small space.
Simply put, photography is the art of capturing light, so a flash should be an essential part of your photography arsenal. The right flash can illuminate a dark scene, help you capture a quickly moving object, or change the overall quality of the light.
A filter can have a subtle but important effect on your photos. A polarizing filter reduces glare, which not only sharpens the quality of the image but can also create richer, more saturated colours and contrast. UV filters provide sharper pictures by helping to eliminate haze, and they can also protect your lens from harmful UV rays.
