Tips to our Photo Of The Day

  1. Light is one of the most important factors to consider in taking portraits. If in case the sitter/subject is not well lit, you have to increase the ISO to compensate for the light.
  2. Try to develop rapport immediately to bring out the natural smile/look of the sitter.
  3. Using one spot focus pointing at the eye/s of the subject will result in stunning portrait shots.
  4. For prints, over exposed the photo by 10-15% of post processing to achieve better quality printout.
  5. And lastly, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our dear model Madeleine :)

  3. Photos taken with some unwanted objects/things may out focus the subject.

  5. It is advisable to use Aperture Priority when taking portrait and play around with the ISO if the subject is not well lit.

Food Photography Tips: It’s Worthy To Watch and Read

Food Photography Tips

food photography tips

The best way to start a food photography is by preparing all your food and props. Of course, aside from your photography gear, you need to ensure everything runs smoothly during the session because the food will take only a few hours to sustain the freshness and quality. Imagine if you are shooting for ice cream or any food that melts after a few minutes, you need to set up everything before getting the food. I found some of the videos on YouTube which I think will help a lot for food photographers.

Lighting is one of the most important things to consider when shooting food. It will make the food delicious and mouth-watering. Remember this question, how can make the food even more delicious?

Always remember that when shooting food make sure that it is well lit aside from your gear and skills. The freshness of the food can be attained by applying oil on the food before taking photos.
