The Imagination Three Years

When about three years old, his imagination is growing. He began to fantasize about various things. Starting from a fairy tale with all its beauty to the land of the evil witch. Starting from a horse that could fly to the fish that can speak.

It is very reasonable. Each child will get through this. This period was actually not a future that will make us dizzy let alone panic. If we follow properly, this period can be a very beautiful time. Growing child’s imagination while playing with her making a very enjoyable time.

What we have to do is steer well that his fear does not continue into adulthood. Sometimes we even feel that their fears could be used for the fulfillment of our desires. For example, if a child is reluctant to eat, we frighten him by saying that many ants would come if he did not immediately spend their food. Of course this is not right for psychic development.

Thing we can do is to accompany and assured him that we were there and able to protect it. Do not face directly with what he feared. For example, by saying, Well, see for yourself right. This ant is okay? It is often useful, even adding his fear.? We face is imagination, not the real world. Continue reading “The Imagination Three Years”

3 Reasons You Do not Need to Fear Photographing With High ISO

We use a very high ISO (above 800) when faced with a situation like this: when the light source available is dim, when we need a high shutter speed, when we do not want to use flash, and when we did not bring a tripod. Concern is greatest when we raise the ISO up above 800 is the emergence of noise, little black spots that usually appear in the final image.
But blessed are you, because it seems to concerns about the emergence of this noise can begin to be eroded. There are 3 reasons good enough so that you can rest easy though using high ISO shooting. What is it? :
Development of Camera Technology
Almost all of the newest generation of SLR cameras have a noise reduction technology (noise reduction) is very reliable, we can shoot up to ISO 1800 and the results are still very viable. To my knowledge, almost all Nikon SLR cameras and Canon output from beginner to pro class grade is very good in getting rid of noise arising from the use of high ISO. Even some quality compact cameras like the Panasonic LX3 (or the latest LX5) apply noise reduction technology very well.

Elements of Composition in Photography: Shape

 

In a series of earlier compositions, we have discussed the line (line) as one of the constituent elements of the composition of a photograph. Well, let’s move on to the next element: the form (shape).
Basically, the form is more fundamental than the other elements because the shape is the way we give the identification of an object (oh, excuse my words very abstract …). You just can you estimate what ya look like a radio broadcaster based sound you hear, but never see directly you can only guess. You may smell the fragrance of flowers and guess about the type flowers, but without direct form you will never be sure whether you guessed right or wrong.
In principle, the shape gives your photos a distinct identity so that people who see no need to guess. A silhouette image as the photo above is the most obvious example of the form.
Further implementation, geometric shapes also can use as a benchmark in setting up several objects in your photos so your photos will look more dynamic as well organized. Suppose you have to shoot 3 people in a single picture, if you set up the same three high you will get a photo of the rigid and less unsightly. Than if you arrange them to form a triangle then the whole picture you will look more dynamic, balanced and interesting.

Just another example of the geometric arrangement:

Okay, good to experiment with forms in your photos.

What you need to Enter Into Camera Bags?
Equipment that I recommend to take a combination of SLR cameras + medium telephoto lens on 85 mm or Super Zoom compact cameras with optical zoom 10-12 times if you have a so-so taken with a macro lens.
This long lens is needed because most animals the animals were placed in the garden a little distance away from the visitors, and often added a wire fence between them. Medium telephoto lens / super zoom can overcome this condition. But if you only have a short lens, do not fret, you can still use it to photograph animal attractions, animals roam benign or even the atmosphere at the zoo itself.
Direct Focus On Eyes
As the saying goes, the eyes are the windows to the soul, to capture the soul of “bestiality” they are clear, focus your shots on the animal’s eyes. If you successfully capture the distinctive look of an animal, your photo will feel more deeply and had a touch of
