Photographing Squirrels

Photographing Squirrels

The Nuttiest Day of the Year Squirrel Appreciation Day is held on the 21st January. This unusual celebration first began in 2001 in North Carolina by wildlife rehabilitator Christy McKeown, as a way of ensuring seeds and nuts were put out for the little fuzzy rodents. Fun Fact  There are many different kinds of Squirrels found almost everywhere all over the world. This means that everyone can turn their hand to photographing these furry critters (whatever the weather, and whatever the season). Squirrels are native to: • The Americas • Africa • Europe • Asia • Australia No doubt you’re asking, how on earth are iPhotography going to embrace ‘squirrel day’?! Well, with one of the iPhotography tutors being as nuts for squirrels as squirrels are for nuts – we thought it was time to get our cameras out! Are you ready to come on a winter woodland adventure? If so, pack up your nuts, pick up your camera, brace the cold and let’s get started searching for our mischievous friends. We’re going to take a little trip in to the forest and watch as the wonders of nature unfold in front of our very eyes! (Don’t worry, we’ve put together some ideas and suggestions to help you along the way…) Where to Start? Now depending upon where you live in the world, you have 2 different options: Option 1 If you have a garden featuring lots of trees and natural wildlife, you may already regularly strike it lucky with appearances from these quirky little fuzz-balls. If not, consider leaving food out in your garden or yard to entice them.   Try scattering some...
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...
“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...
