How to Take Care of Your Digital Camera
Lens Care
The lens of your digital camera is its eye or window to the outside world. It is easily the most important component in any camera. To take care of the lens, make sure that you never, ever touch directly with your fingers. Also make sure that you put on the lens cap when not shooting pictures.

If you really need to clean the lens, use good lens cleaning equipment. Investing in such equipment is really important. Always use a good lens brush, lens blower and lens cloth to do the job.
 
Photo Ideas: Create vintage photos
How to create a "vintage" photo collection without ruining irreplacable family treasures.

Those old black and white photographs sit waiting, nestled in the dark pages of ancient albums for someone to look at them and smile. Some are yellowing, some are falling out of their little corner mounts, some may even be cracked and curling in some forgotten desk drawer. You may have inherited Grandma's antique album, holding such treasures as her and Granddad's wedding portrait or a photo of your mother in her christening gown and later in her cap and gown. Why hide these heirlooms when they can be enjoyed by the whole family?

White Balance

White balance is one of the important distinctions between digital photography and film photography. In digital photography, white balance is critical. It can make or break your picture as much as proper focus and lighting. The wrong setting can cast an ugly tint or cast to the image that distorts natural colors.

Incorrect white balance can be very difficult, and sometimes impossible, to fix after the fact. Most people find green or red tinted skin tones quite unflattering. And dull, muddy skies and murky yellow whites don't do much for your digital prints. It's best to get the white balance right when taking the picture rather than tring to fix it later.

 
Portrait Photography Tips and Methods

Portrait Photography Tips and MethodsPortrait is defined as, “A likeness of a person, especially one showing the face, that is created by a painter or photographer, for example.” In the area of portrait photography there are some guidelines that you should consider when you go to take photos of people.

The different types of portraits are: close-ups, facial shots, upper body shots or environmental portraits. Environmental portraits are where you focus on the subject and on their surroundings that provide more character to the subject.

When people have a camera in their face it usually makes them nervous and they will try to put on a face that does not portray who they really are. The real skill to portrait photography is trying to capture photos when the subjects are comfortable and not worried about a camera.

 
Ten Tips for Better Flower Photographs

Ten Tips for Better Flower PhotographsBE SELECTIVE. In a field, garden or flower show , there is an enormous number of beautiful flowers. Don’t rush to photograph the first blossom you see. Find a plant with the best combination of form, color, lighting and background.

ISOLATION. For impact, isolate your subject. Find a camera angle that minimizes distracting elements, such as other flowers or spectators. Take the time to try low angles, high angles, or moving to the right or left. A wide lens aperture ( a lower-numbered f-stop on and SLR camera) will enhance this effect by softening the background.

COMPOSITION. Pay attention to the position of your subject in the viewfinder. Putting the subject in the dead-center of the picture is often the first instinct, but is not always the most aesthetic composition. Concentrate on what you see in the viewfinder, and recompose the picture until it looks the best to you. And don’t forget to try vertical framing, as well as horizontal.

Learning to Paint Watercolors

Watercolor is an easy, fun medium for creating art.  Color theory, composition and design can be explored freely with watercolor paint, paper, and brushes.  Several techniques may be used with watercolors for varying effects including painting wet on wet, wet on dry, layering washes, and more.

Watercolor paper comes in cold press, hot press, and rough.  Rough paper has the most texture, and its hills and valleys can result in interesting effects when paint is added.  Hot press is the smoothest and has the finest texture.  Cold press has a moderate amount of texture and is the paper most commonly chosen by watercolor artists.

Watercolor paper comes in several weights ranging from 90 lb. to 300 lb. based on the pounds per ream of paper.  Most artists prefer to use at least 140 lb. paper.  Papers vary somewhat between manufacturers, so sampling different papers is advisable.  Paper can be purchased in pads, in blocks or in large sheets.  The large sheets are usually the most economical and can be torn into whatever size is desired.
