                                              Preparation for Creative Photography

  Many elements exist in taking great photographs and this article aims at helping you set up your
camera and monitor to get the most out of the pictures you take.

More to it than Photoshop

Photoshop is a very powerful tool when it comes to photo editing and this program allows you to
enhance and radically change just about any aspect of a photo. Although you can import an image into
an application like Photoshop and edit it in many amazing ways to get the best results to suit your
criterion, you start by taking a great picture.

Presetting your Digital Camera

Apart from a few exceptions you should always shoot in RAW format because you can always be
assured there's more creative leeway in a RAW file. JPEGs lack certain information in the data that
makes up the file. If shooting in JPEG format make sure you shoot at the highest possible quality.

JPEGs have their role, for example, if you have little time to work on the photos after you shoot and
just want to capture a snap, or you require fast sequence shooting then shooting in JPEG format is
ideal.

Understanding your Cameras ISO

Every digital camera has a sensor to capture the image, similar to a computer chip. The camera ISO is
related to the sensor and by adjusting the ISO you increase or decrease the sensitivity of the sensor to
allow for taking images in awkward light situations. For example, a lower ISO setting reduces the light
sensitivity and is used for overly bright scenes. A high ISO setting increases the light sensitivity and is
suitable for taking pictures on a cloddy day.

Be Different, Be Creative

The great thing about digital photography is that you can create really impressive photos by simply
playing around with your settings and experimenting. You will often find that a photo which is
abstracted in some way will show more emotion, or reveal more about the subject in question.

On occasions you will go through phases where you can't snap that great photo and everything always
seems boring or lacking emotion and depth. If you hit a period like this then try one of the following:

Get High: Look around for something you can climb like a staircase, tree or step ladder.

Get Low: Look around and try taking pictures from a low angle i.e. down a flight of stairs, or an
underground hatch.

Calibrate Your Monitor

The guidelines above will help you take wonderful high quality photos that are full of detail and
impressive to look at. Next you will most likely want to edit these pictures using an image editor such
as Adobe Photoshop to put the finishing touches to your creations but first you need to prepare your
work station.

Online retailers often face issues with consumers who are using monitors that are not properly
calibrated. Often what's happening is the consumer is looking at a colour on a screen which is not true
to life i.e. a red t-shirt which is really a burgundy t-shirt.

Adobe Gamma is a monitor calibration tool that comes packaged with Photoshop and it allows you to
correctly calibrate the colours which your monitor displays. Alternatively, you can use QuickGama
which is free software provided by Eberhard Werle.

                                            Creating Creative Digital Photographs
                                                               By Al Sanchez



When it comes to photography there are two very different parts of the mind that are used:
1. The Technical part
This part is used for various photographic necessities such as shutter speed, aperture, light meter
readings, finding the distance reading, focusing properly, etc.

2. The Creative Side
The creative side of photography is where your individual style of photographing will come to play. It is
how you create the photo and compose it. The meanings of the photograph are creative as well.

Here’s the deal with photos. You can have extremely great technical skills but if you don’t have
any creativity your photos will be nothing. Creativity is key and that is why photography is considered
an art form. If it were all technical or the majority technical then it would not be an art form.

Taking amazing photos does not require expensive equipment or anything like that at all. Think of
some famous photos that are very popular. I’ve seen very popular photos that were not the best
quality or done very technically great but had a very strong message. Think about all the photos of
historical events and such. Many of those photos are simple and not technically amazing but the story
being told in those photos is so valuable that the photos themselves become very valuable.

If you want to take better photos first you will need to learn how to take more creative photos. Have a
message to give in the photo. Ask yourself what you are saying through this photo. It doesn’t have
to be a deep dramatic message. The message can be something like “happiness― or
“pleasure―.

The good thing about being creative is that once you start thinking of ideas more ideas will be bred
from those original ideas. The hard part is finding the ideas to start with. Stick with it and eventually you
will be having a hard time actually completing all the ideas you come up with.
Of course, having technical expertise is also great for photography. Having both great technical skills
as well as creative skills that match or are superior will make you an amazing photographer.

how to sell pictures online
