Capturing Those Special Moments

Aug 28, 2008
Photography is an art form. This is what professional photographers will tell you if you ask them about it. But in the eyes of a normal person, capturing that special moment is all that means to them. There's no art form, just pure nostalgia. For them, a simple point and shoot unit would do.

This is the reason why most people have digital cameras at home. They come in handy especially when there are family occasions. There are a lot of cheap digital cameras out there so owning one has never been this easy. Of course not all cameras are the same.

They have different features and have specific use. Let's say that you are into diving and wanted to take pictures underwater, you can either buy a water-proof jacket for your existing unit (although there's no guarantee that you can have the same quality of picture) or simply buy a new one that can be used both under and above water.

If you are not really into professional photography, then there's no need for complicated units. You just have to know the basics of photography in order to make a good shot. You can even use those old models that use films and achieve the same quality of pictures that a digital unit can produce.

The first thing that you have to consider is lighting. Look at the background and find the source of your light. When you are outdoor in broad daylight, then the sun is your only source of light.

The flash is probably the single most important feature of any camera be it digital or conventional, professional or point and shoot. With the flash in tow, you can take photographs even when there are no visible sources of light. This is especially important during at night when your lighting is not much that you can't rely on it solely to get a clear shot.

But because the light coming from the flash can only reflect on objects within its range, the distance plays an important key in capturing a good picture. Lens exposure is also important set it too high and all your shots will be overexposed. But setting it too low will make your shots darker or not visible at all.

Taking photographs is fun and easy. But taking good pictures would entail a little hard work, especially for amateur photographers. It only takes creativity and a good view. Even the best camera can't take a good shot all by itself.

It will need someone to use it to its full potential. After all, a good shot is only as good as the one who took it. It does'nt really matter whether you are an expert or if you are using models that feature the latest in digital photography. As long as you know what pictures to take, you know your subject, you are aware of the surroundings and the source of light, then you are on your way to capturing those essential moments forever.
