A Lesson for the Photographically Challenged . A few tips to help some lackluster photographers along: Alrighty. Now, I know that I'm not the best photographer. I'd like to think that I'm decent, but that's for others to decide. The purpose of this page is simply to help along other people whose photography skills leave much to be desired. So, If you'd like to take (somewhat) better pictures, check this out, and to keep you interested, I threw in a new MOC! credit to Smifery Vector for the basic Swoop concept . Here's my basic setup. I take a piece of posterboard (you can find them at almost any craft store like Hobby-Lobby) and set it up against a well lit wall (this is across from a window that get's a bunch of light. I find the best time to take photos is on overcast days). As you can see, the curved cardboard creates a seamless white background. Example: Here's an overhead shot using only my hand to steady the camera. As you can see, it's pretty darn blurry. Here I've used Magazines and books to create a steady, adjustable base. See? Much clearer Alright. This is using the default, automatic camera settings (I took off flash, we'll get to that later though) BUT... When set on macro (fine detail) and portrait setting... The camera takes much clearer and better looking pictures. ooh... look at that UGLY flash. I personally hate using flash, and avoid it at all costs. As you can see, natural light gives a softer, nicer feel to the picture. Just a little detail shot for all you hidden-touches people out there. Hope you all found this useful, Keep on building ~ Nowhereman
