Shoot the Building

Rather than take a picture from straight in front of the building like this,



You better step aside a bit, and shoot from 45 degree of its front. This way you will produce a three dimensional photo. Its nicer and give sense of dimension. Try this.

Travel Photography : Singapore

All photos were taken with exposure 30 seconds and F number 22 to ensure the total sharpness of images and create beautiful light reflection effect on the water. I didn't bring any tripod with me, so I just put my camera on the floor and tried several composition until I got what I wanted. Admiting Singapore is beautiful city, I'm a bit proud with the results. Hope you can enjoy it too.

Semua Foto dibawah ini diambil dengan eksposur 30 detik dan F22 untuk memastikan semua di dalam frame tajam dan ada efek slowspeed pada air disamping refleksi lampu yang indah. Tanpa membawa tripod, kamera hanya diletakkan dilantai sambil mencoba-coba komposisi. Hasilnya ga jelek-jelek amat kan? semoga dapat dinikmati :)











Geometri Sederhana

Pada prinsipnya ini adalah "latihan mata". Bagaimana menangkap bentuk bentuk geometri dasar. Karena secara alamiah mata manusia mudah mengenali bentuk geometri sederhana yaitu : Kotak, Lingkaran, dan Segitiga.


Latihan ini memiliki dua manfaat :


1. Melatih mata untuk melihat Bakcground yang baik. Bila background sudah baik, maka menambahkan elemen manusia seperti kehadiran model dan orang jalan atau adanya hewan hidup akan menambah nilai foto. Tetapi bila Background tidak baik justru tidak sedap dipandang dan mengganggu bahkan mengurangi nilai keindahan suatu foto.


2. One shoot one kill. Maksudnya sekali jepret jadi sesuai dengan gambar yang diinginkan. Batas kiri frame sampai mana, batas kanan sampai mana, apa saja yang ingin dimasukkan dalam frame, apa yang harus dihindari, dst. Hal ini dapat dicapai bila sebelum memencet shutter fotografer membiaskan diri untuk berpikir dahulu gambar seperti apa yang ingin dihasilkan. Batas kiri frame sampai mana dan batas kanan frame sampai mana. Keahlian ini akan berguna untuk meningkatkan kualitas foto. less shutter, higher quality.


3. Melatih Komposisi. Berlatih komposisi dengan dua kotak sederhana jauh lebih mudah daripada mencari komposisi di tempat ramai. Seiring tingginya jam terbang latihan semakin baik komposisi foto yang dihasilkan.


4. Melatih Kreativitas. Dengan membidikkan view finder ke dinding kosong atau jendela, fotografer akan berimajinasi apa yang perlu ditambahkan agar foto menjadi semakin menarik.  Latihan Kreativitas ini penting agar foto yang dihasilkan yang tidak 'pasaran' atau sama dengan karya foto orang lain.


Demikian, semoga bermanfaat.
