Photography

Just posted my entry for BBC 63

I'd say my photography has improved since I first started posting MOCs on BZP, but it's still a shade below the stuff you see from those people who always do well.

Anyone got any tips on how to improve? I use a Pentax Optio 430 camera, with 4.0 Megapixels. When I took my entry pics I had the flash on and used the button with the flower next to it, which I don't understand, but know makes the pictures better. I used MS paint to resize some of the pictures, and put them all together for the entry pic, and add text.

MS paint can really degrade quality when you save or work in it. Some people use gimp, Photoshop, or some other image editing program.

For my photography, I have a large white paper background set up by a window for natural light. I photograph using a Nikon D3000, which is a DSLR.

Also, the button with the flower, that is your camera's macro mode. Macro pretty much lets you get close up shots that are less likely to be blurry because of the mode you're using. The camera is just able to focus on closer objects.

It really takes a lot of experimentation and practice though. What Paleo says is a good start. Try using a white paper background, or big pieces of poster-board next to a natural light source if possible.

You could also do some research on your own. Look up light boxes on Google, there are some pretty simple methods to set up good photo sets. Practice makes perfect. I've been improving over time, but my pictures still aren't better than the best.
