20 TIPS FOR GREAT FLOWER SHOT

with 2 comments

Setelah sekian lama aku x on blog ni sbb terlalu bz.

So this time…aku nk share sket2 psl tips utk shot flower.Kalo di europe and negara 4 musim..kite kne ikut keadaan suca utk dapatkn shot berdasarkan musim tersebut.Di musim bunge…photographer amat lah menantikn shot utk flower as macro shot.Hope this tips bleh tlg sesape nk shot flower.

  1. Gunekn TRIPOD time shot.Ni mslh photographer sbb mls nk angkut tripod berat2.haha..tp..tripod AMAT penting kalo nk shot flower…atas sebab kite nk dapatkn details kat focus point!!Tripod melambatkn proses kite amek photo sbb leceh..tp sbenarnye die bg mase utk kite berfikir angle mane for the best shot!
  2. Take your time on shoting.Kalo dah jmp lokasi..jgn trus shot sesuke ati.jalan2 dlu cari port mane best and fikir cmne nk shot.Jgn gelojoh!!hehe
  3. Try experiment gune flash time shot.Gune power flash sederhana.
  4. TUTUP AUTOFOCUS!!!gune manual focus time shot.
  5. Understand about the RULE OF THIRD.You must know how to place your subject on the frame.
  6. Pilih view point yg betul.Biasekn mata sama level dgn flower..kalo flower rendah..baringkn badan..selambe je..jgn hirau pe org pk..=)
  7. The most interesting point…ADD WATER ELEMENT on the flower..gunekn spray utk spray sikit air atas flower for more interesting shot.
  8. GO TELEPHOTO..utk total isolate the background..use telephoto lens for a great impact!wide aperture of telephoto lens can really throw the background out of focus.
  9. Gune remote release or timer.Ini adalah utk elakkn gegaran semasa tekan shutter gune jari.macro shot is about detail!!so..kite x nk detail hilang sebab gegaran.
  10. Tengok keadaan cuaca.WAKTU PANAS TERIK BUKAN WAKTU TERBAIK UTK FLOWER SHOT sbb ia akan hasilkn shot yg  contrast dan highlight yg terlalu tinggi  dan sekali gus menghilangkn shadow detail.
  11. Use Macro lens for a close up.tp kne invest sket on macro lens sbb agak mahal.=)
  12. Shot in MANUAL…manual mode bg kite pilih semua setting utk kehendak kite.Kawal aperture,shutter speed & White Balance sendiri is better.Cube belajar memahami camera anda sepenuhnye.Tngk histogram utk baiki shot jika ada kesilapan.
  13. Tngk background!!!JGN MAIN BANTAI SHOT je…wlaupn objek menarik tetapi background teruk..the whole shot akan jd buruk.
  14. Use extension tube kalo xde macro lens.Extension tube agak murah berbanding macro lens..but the impact little bit less.
  15. BE WARY OF WIND!!!Angin adalah MUSUH utama dlm macro shot!!!angin akan menghalang kite utk dapatkn shot yg sharp dgn detail seperti yg dimahukn…but then..jgn jdkn die alasan utk x nk shot…gunekn utk arah positif.kite bleh shot the motion of the flower as a blur motion.Another great motive!!
  16. Bawa pen dan kertas!!Jika anda shot kat flower park..gunekn kesempatan utk amek nama dan butiran tentang bunga tersebut.At least kite bleh tau serba sket pasal bunge itu.
  17. Move to INDOOR.Kadang2 kite perlu shot indoor utk dapatkn perspektif lain.Kite x perlu risau pasal angin kalo indoor.Kite bleh main tuko2 background colors and play with off flash shot.=)
  18. TRY EXTREME CROPPING or SOFT FOCUS or HIGH KEY EFFECT time editing..it’ll give more impact on the photo.
  19. Kadang2 agak menarik kalo gune wide angle lens utk shot a family of flower from a different angle.(normally from a lower angle for a better impact)=)
  20. The basic thing..use wide aperture!!!it’s a MUST!!!play arounf f2,8-4 to give a great DOF!!

Few photos utk tantapan..=)..sekian
