d Product Photography

D product photography is captured special photography equipment and software. Firstly; items are photographed by revolving camera, which captures the item from every single angle in case of 3D or round horizontal axes in case of 360 photography. The photos can be also taken by rotating item in front of steady camera and the whole process of capturing the images is controlled directly from the PC. Once you have series of photos in your PC, the second step is subsequent conversion of pictures into 3D or 360 presentation. There are more possible solutions of conversion “” but the most frequent are these two types of solutions; the Client-Server (On-Line) Solution or Stand-Alone (Off-Line) Solution. After the selection of the suitable viewer of your 3D presentations and uploading source images on a server, the final implementation is finished almost immediately. All the 3D viewers” windows have possibilities of customizing its size, background, borders, graphic details and many other features which enhance the graphic attractiveness of the images. The 360 degree or 3D product photography fit your websites perfectly and improves the general graphic appearance of your e-shop.

Using A Ghillie Suit For Wildlife Photography

I have been advocating the use of ghillie suits in the observation of wildlife and birding for years. When Adam Grimm recently bought his ghillie poncho from ghilliesandstuff, I was pleased to discover that he used his ghillie suit extensively in his work and past time as a wildlife artist. As you can see from some of the examples of his work here, Adam is an extremely talented and professional artist. He has been kind enough to allow me to display some of his copywrited works here and on my website. My hunting visitors will probably be most interested in the game birds such as the turkeys, pheasant, and the ducks. As you can see Adam has also painted some remarkable songbirds as well.

Adam sent me some really cool shots of himself at work in his ghillie suit. He is as good as I have seen in the use of a ghillie suit. Not all of us have the artistic eye to match our terrain as closely as Adam has, but with effort and diligence we can get as close as is necessary for excellent results. If you notice, He likes to do birds in the snow so I expect at some point he will be getting a white ghillie poncho. By strategically adding some black and some brown threads he will end up with an authentic looking snow covered bush.

Adam carries his equipment to his working site on a sled and then either sinks the sled in the water or covers it with a spare ghillie suit. Of the ghillie suit pictures he sent me, I find the one with him standing chest deep in the water the most intriguing. That is real dedication. Definitely not something to try in the gulf coastal states where you find so many snakes, alligators, and in south Florida, pythons.

The other ghillie suit pictures are posed mainly to show off the effectiveness of the ghillie suit. The only reason you can see his face and such is he posed that way for demonstration purposes. Note that in a couple of the shots, you cannot see him at all.

I have a page dedicated to Adam’s work on my ghillie suit gallery. I intend to also have page for hunting pictures and another for paintball pictures. If you would like to see your pictures in the gallery, contact me, James, at 704-620-2652 or by email at

Learn Photography Create The Maximum Depth Of Field

Imagine the kind of pictures you could take if everything were in focus from one foot to infinity? Here’s the inside scoop on one of the oldest secrets in photography.

Galen Rowell, one of my favorite photographers, used to create landscape compositions in which both foreground objects and distant elements appeared in perfect focus. The effect is stunning. The viewer can both study a delicate pattern of petals in a foreground flower and marvel at the beauty of outlying mountains. How did he do that?

Galen found a way to capture tremendous depth of field in his images. In other words, he could have everything in focus, from inches away to infinity. You can employ this same technique in your photography; you just have to know the hack. Three important factors come into play on these types of shots:

The focal length of your lens: The wider the better

The lens aperture: The smaller the better (f-16, f-22, etc.)

The object on which you focus in the composition: Contrary to expectation, it’s not the thing closest to you.

Once you’ve properly set these adjustments, you can create depth of field that spans from a foot in front of you to the puffy clouds drifting by.

Focal Length: The Wider the Better

Wide-angle lenses, or zoom lenses set to wide angle, are a key factor in depth-of-field photography. They help create the illusion that more things are in focus. Galen Rowell usually shot with 35mm film cameras, and often he would use a 24mm wide-angle lens for this type of landscape image. For this hack, I recommend you find a digital lens that provides a film-camera equivalent of a 28mm lens. You can go wider if you want (such as 24mm), but as you’ll see, that’s easier said than done in the digital world.

For example, if you’re shooting with an SLR, such as a Nikon D70, then you would need to use Nikon’s 17-55mm zoom lens to get roughly the same angle of view as Galen’s 24mm lens on his 35mm SLR.

Why? Well, the D70 and many other digital SLRs have image sensors that are smaller than 35mm film. That changes the relationship between lens and camera, and the result is that you often have to multiply the focal length of the lens by a factor of 1.5 to get the same angle of coverage that you would with the lens mounted on a film camera.

If you multiply the Nikon 17-55mm zoom lens by 1.5, you get the 35mm equivalent of a
25.5-82.5mm lens. You may or may not care about all of this. But what you do need to know is that you have to find a lens with a film-camera equivalent of at least a 28mm lens for this type of photography. The Nikon 17-55mm zoom on a D70 should work nicely.
If you’re shooting with a digital point and shoot, such as a Canon PowerShot A80, then your built-in zoom lens (7.8-23.4mm) has the film-camera equivalent of a 38-114mm zoom lens? not quite as wide as we’d like for this type of shooting. The good news is that Canon offers a wide converter (WC-DC52) for this camera that attaches over the built-in zoom lens. It extends your field of view to a healthy film-camera equivalent 24mm lens. Cool! In fact, many digital point and shoots accept wide-angle lens attachments. If you’re interested in this type of shooting, then you’ll want to make sure your next camera has this.

Regular Photography Business Is Dying. Birthing Of 3d Photography Business!

Of course I understand that the sentence “Regular photography business is dying” in this article title is too strong. The most talented photographers will be in business forever. I used it just to grab your attention to the problem that regular photography business got recently after starting a digital era.

Nowadays photo companies like Canon, Nikon and others are making simple to operate yet more and more advanced photo cameras and lenses, adding more new and useful features to the cameras, improving quality, sensitivity, noise reduction while at the same time cutting the price. Now everybody can buy a Digital SLR photo camera, read a photography book and take pretty good quality photos. Now we have more very affordable ink jet photo printers available in the market that can produce decent prints. There are many powerful photo editing programs for improving the images and making nice looking collages. The entire process of making nice pictures today is not difficult compared to the same process 10 years ago and much less expensive. That is good for the consumer but has put a great pressure on the professional photography business. Today anyone can buy computer, DSLR camera, ink jet photo printer and call themselves a professional photographer.

Today many people prefer to invite a friend to take their wedding photographs rather than use a professional wedding photographer. Those that do use a professional are expecting lower expenses as there are many standard photographers to choose from.Now many people prefer to make the photos by themselves without going to professional photographers and photo studios. That is why we can say that regular photography business is under huge pressure.

Over the years digital photography has become common place and technology has simplified and improved the resulting pictures to the point where even large companies in the photo processing industry are closing down outlets. Those that remain are trying to regain business by offering large format prints or prints on canvas, things the general public cannot produce. Many large stores which do not offer those services do not have photo departments anymore where previously they had big profitable photo departments.

But there is a new way for photo business, the business that is not easy to repeat by everybody and with very attractive product for customers! I am talking about 3D photography business.

3D Photography Business
There are several ways for taking 3D pictures and for most of them the viewer needs some special glasses for seeing 3D effect. That is not convenient for customers and not good for business. However there is one technology that does not need any kind of glasses. That is 3D lenticular technology.

3D lenticular technology is the most suitable for customers because people can hold the picture in the hands and see 3D, without crazy “crossing eyes” or having the special glasses. 3D lenticular pictures have the regular colors like regular photos; they can be in any sizes from small wallet size to big size for putting on a wall, they look like the regular photos just more alive because of the depth. That is why regular people prefer 3D lenticular images compare to other types of 3D pictures.

One of the main problems of making 3D lenticular images is a difficulty of taking the pictures and a very long and labour-consuming process of creating the pictures. For example,even couple years ago we spent at least 2-3 hours before getting an image, because almost all stages of process of creating 3D picture were manual.Of course, it is not acceptable for business because the price of each picture was very high. But luckily now, with modern 3D lenticular technology we can receive 3D lenticular picture in just 10 minutes and even less and most of this time is spending on printing because almost all steps of lenticular technology are automated now, for example, process could be so automated that period of time between triggering 3D camera and starting printing could be as low as 40 seconds. This In-Depth Image System was developed for covering all technology steps in process of producing of 3D lenticular pictures from taking the frames to creating 3D image. This system is easy to operate, for example, we can teach the people how to work with In-Depth Image System and produce 3D lenticular images during 3-4 hours and people do not have to be the experts in photography or in computer.

In-Depth Image System can be successfully used in many different photo market niches. There are:

Portrait photography;

School and graduation photography;

Event photography;

Pets photography;

Advertisement photography and so on.

In-Depth Image System could be used for establishing of 3D photo business because:

In-Depth Image System produces High Quality 3D Lenticular pictures in different sizes;

This system is simple to operate;

In-Depth Image technology of producing 3D lenticular images is easy and rapid;

There is no necessity to have very experienced staff;

The prices on 3D pictures are very competitive with the prices that ask regular photo studios for regular flat pictures;

It is almost impossible to repeat this process by customers themselves, so you will be the only expert in making 3D lenticular pictures in your area;

It is profitable.

Please, look at the real sample picture that were made by In-Depth Image System below. Unfortunately that is impossible to show the depth on that picture because computer monitor can show the flat images only. That is why I created animation GIF file from the frames taken by our system. Originally we shot 12 – 18 frames, so 3D lenticular pictures are much smoother and without any rough jumping like on animation pictures.

Photography Ideas For Artistic Photography Projects — Negative Space

Are you searching for some photography ideas for a photography project? Selecting a photography project that not only creates some great shots but also helps you build your photography skills would be a good idea. There are various skills that one can pick for a project. This article presents one skill, negative space, which you can use for a photography project that can help to develop your skills.

Negative space is essentially a compositional method. When applied correctly, its use can produce beautiful images.

Making Use of Negative Space

There are three main compositional components to a photography image.

Frame: The border that identifies the edges of the image.

Positive Space: The positive space is composed of the objects that the photo is all about. Put simply, it is the main subject of the photograph.

Negative Space: The space between the positive space and the frame.

Any photograph is formed, in various proportions, of the frame, positive space, and negative space. In order to create impressive photos, it is necessary to manage these components.

When composing photographs, some people tend to think mostly in terms of the positive space. Very little consideration is put into the negative space. It is treated almost as an unimportant part of the image. This is not the best way to compose an image! When handled well, the negative space can carry out two important functions. Thus, the negative space can significantly enhance an image:

First: The negative space can serve to define the positive space.

Second: The negative space can encircle the positive space in a way that can make it much more conspicuous.

The negative space can serve to help define the positive space by furnishing detail about the positive space. As one example, a photo may show part of a bridge. Nevertheless, there may be few details that give any suggestions of where the bridge is based. Is the subject that forms the positive space in a crowded, urban park or in a natural environment? We can not tell from the close-up. More information is necessary to better define the positive space. If the photographer were to show some of the landscape around the positive space, this would produce some negative space that would help to better define the positive space.

However, when making use of the negative space in this manner, it is essential that the negative space not overpower the positive space. For this example, the photographer could render the negative space a bit out of focus so that it becomes subservient to the positive space.

The essential point here is that the negative space has to support, not compete with, the positive space. Otherwise, the negative space will not likely enhance the image.

The negative space can also help make the positive space stand out. This is achieved because the negative space helps to manage the attention of a viewer. It does this by helping to direct the viewer’s attention to the positive space. To make the negative space more effective at focusing the attention, all distracting detail must be eliminated from the negative space.

So the moral of the story is that each of these two spaces needs to be very carefully evaluated when an image is composed.

Photography Project

Now, it’s time for your photography project. Why not create a portfolio of images with negative spaces that function to enhance the images?

In Conclusion

This article covered one skill you can use to begin a photography project. However, much more can be learned.

Appreciate How The Japanese Photography Trends Is Getting More Exciting

Japanese photography trends have been very interesting and many individuals have been keen on the growth. The nation have financial grown and it is home to firms and persons acknowledged for their role in developing equipment and changing the way people take pictures. The production of machines used has been evolving and the targeted market is more demanding.

A portion of the populace remembers the time when having a picture on a paper needed a gifted person. It was time consuming hence it needed tolerance. Progress witnessed in this arena has made it possible to save time. Individuals prefer having taken photographs modified and put on paper instantaneously.

A number of factors lead to the photo taking styles being used presently. A big number of cameras are accessible playing a major role in the occurrences. The cost effectively sold appliances have been greatly improved to satisfy customer needs. The economic giant’s capacity to manufacture and cheaply sell various brands of camera is unrivaled.

Members of the society have also lead to the changing styles because they want to process photos at the shortest time possible. Some years back it took minutes to have a picture processed but currently it is just a matter of seconds. After he picture is take it can be scanned, printed or sent to a phone.

The industry has also given people being photographed the right to modify their pictures. This is done by adding words, drawings, illustration and other graphics they would like to have on their pictures or videos. People are able to animate their photos or turn them to monochrome.

Toy cameras have been widely put into use for over four years changing the history of this industry. People who enjoy taking photos and videos can do so economically using highly developed devices retailed at friendly prices. A few firms have paid little or no attention to the direction picture making is taking but toy cameras still emerges tops.

Currently Purikuras which are largely targeting girls in their teens have taken picture taking to another level. The word is used in reference to picture booths and products that are associated with them. Organizations are putting up large photograph booths that incorporate latest fashions and attires hence the encounters in them are full of enjoyable. Customers have the freedom to wear the clothes and they can use Parikura pictures to know if they fit. The booths are slowly changing into rooms that people can have a change of clothes and access latest modes of dressing designed by different companies. The enthusiasm has been as result of publishing of Parikura photographs that included those of some idols.

The growth witnessed does not mean that no turbulence are being encountered. Purikuras are yet to become gender sensitive because males are not allowed to get in without their female counterparts. A big number of men linger around the booths preying on the girls who are in their early adulthood. Japanese photography trends are a sign of innovation and a prosperous future.

Why People Choose Outdoor Maternity Photography

One of the most important things about maternity photography is choosing the right place for the photo shoot. Many couples opt for an outdoor maternity photography session because mother nature is one of the most fitting locations for an expecting mother to have her photo shoot in. Here are a couple of reasons why outdoor maternity photography is a good choice.

The first reason is that it can produce a natural effect like no other. Even if studios are equipped with all the lights and gadgets to come up with quality photos, many experts still prefer the effect of natural lighting. It also brings out the natural colors of people which are enhanced by the vibrant colors of mother nature.

The outdoors also offer a more relaxed setting that is ideal for photo shoots. This allows the subjects to feel and look more comfortable during the shoot. Subjects will have an easier and more enjoyable time as they perform the different poses. Nothing can compare to a pregnant woman enjoying herself in the loving arms of nature.

It allows photographers to play with the different elements such as the sun, a body of water, the blue sky or a green field. These elements, when used properly, can produce awesome photos. It also offers different lighting during the course of the day. Under the morning sun, photographers are able to produce some of the most refreshing photos, while the afternoon sun can bring a more melodramatic effect. A photographer with a good eye will be able to maximize the different options outdoor maternity photography brings.

There is no need to wear heavy makeup when shooting outdoors. The natural lighting of the outdoors bring out the true tones of a pregnant woman; rosy cheeks are easily captured under these settings. Besides, the reason why youre shooting outdoors is for a more natural effect, wearing heavy makeup will ruin the whole idea.

The diversity of outdoor maternity photography brings endless options when it comes to background, angles and lighting. This is the main reason most people now choose outdoor shoots over those done inside a studio. In addition, photos taken from a studio are too artificial and can be too monotonous at times.

Evaluating The True Cost Of Jewelry Photography

In commerce, nothing feels or tastes better than a bargain! However, many companies such as yours, actually all companies concerned about cost, must recognize the principle of cost vs. value when procuring jewelry photography used for marketing, sales and advertising.

There are numerous Jewelry Photography companies and hundreds of individual (photographers) in the marketplace who produce digital jewelry images perceivably at cheaper prices. They present an initial lesser expanse, however with cheaper prices you also get cheaper value, a lesser quality image with no competitive advantage!

The fee for acquiring quality jewelry photography to be used in your online store must not become the hindering factor to a successful future sale; the digital image is the fundamental value of your store, your revenue builder, the only asset that represents you and your business. Its a non-optional must! Its a verified recipe to realize the competitive advantage in todays online business environment.

If you had a choice of profiting $10 for every $2 spent or $1000 for every $200 spent, would you spend only $2 because it was “more affordable”? Of course not.

In fact, if you needed to spend $100 to profit $500 you would not shy away from paying it, would you? Of course not. The common oversight among online jewelry retailers is the failure to recognize the difference between manufacturing and creative services and the distrust in ROI.

In manufacturing, its relatively easy to determine return on investment expense, a combination of raw material, fabrication, marketing and distribution, labor and overhead cost vs. income, the final sales price.

More difficult by far is to determine the true cost and return on investment of a creative service such as jewelry photography. These services are labor intensive and require human capital, in addition to capital investment. Their ultimate value lays not so much in what they provide today but rather what they contribute to the future!

To be efficient and competitive in todays global economy, not only youre required to utilize sources that provide competitive advantage such as high-quality digital jewelry photography, but also to maintain a high degree of flexibility in order to accomplish long term cost effectiveness towards profitability. Jewelry photography is a qualitative service. The crucial process of comparing and evaluating exceptional jewelry photography is not difficult and is one of the most relevant parts of your online business. Using a well meaning but unqualified Jewelry Photographer is unaffordable and disruptive when cost effectiveness is crucially important.

It is your jewelry store. Ultimately you decide whether or not distinctive, customer-appealing images are what you seek to place into your online store; and, if youre willing to spend what it takes to acquire them. Adorning your online store with high quality jewelry photography commands consumer confidence.
