Photographing books

Photographing books

How to Photograph Your Favourite Books We all like to take time out and submerge ourselves in a good book. So at iPhotography this got us thinking, is there any way we can show our appreciation to our favourite books by photographing them? Here’s a few handy hints, tips and creative ideas to get you on your way. 1. Never take photographs in artificial light. Just don’t do it guys. Even if your camera allows you to change the ISO and aperture and shutter speed settings, it’s something we wouldn’t recommend doing. Why I hear you ask? Well what’s the rush? The book will still be there tomorrow, unless your library rental is close to expiry. Do the book justice and photograph using natural light. Using artificial light can cause several problems: – It makes your book pages look yellow. – The surface of your book will cause you to get those ‘blinding’ yellow/white spots which is caused by the reflective surface, which will effectively ruin your photo. – colors of the book will not be true to their color and shade. – Using a flash/ artificial light will make you photographs look almost unprofessional, the background will be took dark and the book will look fake. Make use of the natural light to make the background look white and clean. 2. Angles are key. As we know angles are vital when shooting anything and can really affect the overall shot. There’s nothing wrong with taking a birds eye view of a book or even straight on, but sometimes it can look slightly amateurish. If you don’t get the...
Reflection Photography

Reflection Photography

Reflection Photography Tips Reflection photography is a challenging, special type of photography that requires a decent comprehension of perspective, angles and of course an artistic eye and flair. Reflection photos can be hard to capture because they involve you looking at your perspective differently, or in a less traditional sense than you normally would. So, instead of photographing a traditional scene, why not mix it up a little? You have to start by changing your perspective – take your shots upside down. You want your viewer to look at the world from a new viewpoint. It will take time and consideration to get the perfect shots, but the end results can be extremely rewarding. Reflections can be used to add depth and interest; they can also act as a frame, for capturing an image within an image – pretty clever, and artistically original all at the same time. From reflections of trees in lakes, to shots of new buildings with their surroundings reflected within them, there are plenty of ways a photographer can shoot and use reflections to their advantage. To provide you with some new found inspiration, iPhotography™ has put together a list of ideas – we hope this will help to unleash your imagination. Puddles… they are everywhere. How many times have you passed a great big puddle in the street and tried to avoid it? This image is an example of how simple and effective this can work as a reflective image when done correctly. Great for creating atmosphere and moods within your images, using wet, damp puddles, with the right composition and filter can be...
Abstract Shadows

Abstract Shadows

How to Creatively use Shadows within your Photography It’s time to release your inner child and get creative with abstract photography. Using shadows within your photography can not only be fun but also creates some really exciting abstracts. There are lots of different ways you can utilise shadows as the main element of a creative photo. Here at iPhotography we want to give you some ideas and tips on photographing shadows, so that hopefully we will inspire you to try some of these out for yourself. Photograph basics 101: Photographers tend to focus on light within their images; without the balance of light and shadow, images can lack dimension and texture – the overall result can then end up, well… flat. In fact, we often think of light as one of the most important aspects of photography. Shadows tend to be considered as less important – they are after all, created by a lack of light. However, this could be a major mistake to make, for light is nothing without shadow and vice versa! Shadows are a great way to add contrast exquisitely within your image. They are a way of adding highlights and lowlights. This is particularly important to keep in mind for black and white images, as you rely on contrast. You cannot use or manipulate colour to add interest, so the responsibility falls on the contrast to bring your image to life. Tip: When framing and deciding on composition for your shot make sure you pay attention to the surrounding light and shadows. They can be used to enhance your images, but equally they can create...
“What is Abstract Photography?”

“What is Abstract Photography?”

What is Abstract Photography? Abstract photography… it’s a bit like marmite, you either love it or hate it. But let us consider why that is? Abstract photography can be intimidating to photographers because of the amount of freedom that comes with it. The rules are….well, there are no rules! You know the saying: “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, well abstract photography is exactly what the viewer makes it, and it can hold many different interpretations, views and opinions. There has never been an exact definition of what exactly ‘abstract photography’ is; similar to abstract art, it offers many different ways of looking at a subject. The image itself will not be literal, so the subject comes second to actually “seeing”. There is often no clear cut definition of what the object could be, leaving a great element of mystery surrounding the subject – could there be more to it than meets the eye? Abstract photography can be really fun. It’s a great way of seeing day to day objects in a different light. It provides the opportunity to look at an object in more detail. Shots are often visually interesting (as well as creative), which is great news for those who like to explore and think outside of the box. Is Abstract Photography for You? As we know, any kind of photography is subjective and everyone has different opinions and responses. The only way you’ll ever really know is to give it a go! One of the advantages of shooting abstract shots is it’s so inexpensive, you don’t need to source objects or spend money on...
