Photography is indisputably a marvel in itself. Like the painters, the photographers do the magic of depicting their talent through an art. The difference between both of them is that the painters spark their canvass with their art while photographers do the same on the camera film. Both have the potential to express the emotions and feelings. Photography is the thing of the hour. It takes on modern developments and advancements with each passing day. There are also a number of useful tricks which can be employed to make the most out of your talent and to take your skills to the whole new level. We have come up with some basic techniques and guidelines for carrying out trick photography.
Use the Lamp in Place of Tripod
If you are about to capture the group photo and lacking the tripod and also want to be in the picture then use the lamp shade holder for the purpose of placing your camera on it to take the group shot. To your surprise, the size of the thread of the lampshade’s bolt is exactly similar to the thread of the filter used on the tripods. Hence, your camera body will be attached to it very easily. Just go in front of the being captured group and pose for the picture.
Detach Your Lens for Macro Photography
This is probably the best of tricks you are ever going to hear about. If you are lacking the macro lens and you desperately want to carry out macro photography then simply detach your lens from the camera body and place it in a between your camera and object. You will wonder how this trick is going to work in showing the small sized things the bigger ones. While using this trick, you have to keep four essential things in mind:
(1) You are only capable of taking the picture in the manual mode since you have taken your lens off.
(2) The excellent focal length is around 50mm; hence, either the kit lens having 18-55mm focal length or prime lens having 50mm focal length will do perfectly.
(3) Evidently, you have lost auto-focus as the lens is detached from your camera. Focus can be attained by moving further away or closer to your object simply.
(4) The camera is unable to open or close the aperture; hence, it can only be done by using your hands.
Make Bokeh from the Paper
Everybody falls in love with the alluring bokeh in the backdrop of the photographs. There is one simplest way to modify the light shape bursting in the bokeh. Cut a black piece of paper having the magnitude of the front element of your lens. After that, employ a sharp razor blade or kitchen knife to cut out the shape in the center of the paper. Your shape must be a little larger than that of the thumbnail. Remember, you are only likely to see this trick work while shooting with the large aperture, hence, the 50mm having f/1.8 can be a great choice.
