deejay4: your sanyo is a video cam. i'd suggest that you use your Sony for photos instead. You can do basic shots with your P&S (point and shoot).

Sabi nga "wala sa pana yan, nasa indian".

the 1st set of numbers (6.3-31.7) on your lens indicates the focal length of the lens, the second set (1:3.5-4.7)indicates the aperture or opening of the lens also known as f-stops.

and they do matter, regardless if it's digital or film as these numbers will affect the type of shots you'll be able to create.

thanks pinoize2k4...

isa pang tanong sir,

ano po ba mga basic stuff na kailangan para makapag-start?

yung tipong mga basic stuff na kapag meron ka, pede masabi ng mga frends ko na medyo advance na ako kahit paano, or masasabi ko sa sarili ko na im getting there... kahit basic lang.

digital cam lang kasi meron ako... what else should i have?

thanks.

actually having a dSLR will definitely bring your photography to another level. you will also need a decent flash that has advanced features and a sturdy tripod for those long exposure shots.

Just want to add that you'll also need time to practice taking pictures, studying them, and thinking of how to take a better shot next time.

What's good about digital is you can compose and take the picture, then view and critique, then take a better shot all within a minute or so.

dSLR = digital Single Lens Reflex

Simply put, these are those bulky cameras that you can change lenses. an entry level dSLR will cost about 40 - 50k.

Why a dSLR?

While your point and shoot camera is a good enough to start your love for photography, it will be limiting as the lenses on P&S are fixed to certain focal lenghts and apertures. You might want an effect like a blurred background for your subject which dSLRs can achieve easily.

It also gives you total control of your shots. Giving you the effect that you want for your shot.

Rule of thirds

Posted Image

you've probably read the term "rule of thirds" in this forum, photography books or magazines. the rule of thirds is a guideline in photography for better composition. I'll try to explain it as much as I can and hopefully you'll be able to compose your images better.

the rule of thirds is basically dividing your viewfinder or LCD into three rows and three columns. and then, put your subject on any of the intersections that were created as shown in the image above.

when i took this silhouette of Cueshe guitarist Jovan, you will notice that while his head does not meet the intersection, his elbow does. I chose to hit his elbow because it is an extended part of his body being attached to the arm holding the guitar. I could've also had his head meet the upper intersection and it would still be a good composition. It's a matter of personal choice.

when following the rule of thirds, you are not obligated to hit only one intersection, you can hit as many as two.

-------------

i hope this little tip helps you in composing your shots. next, i'll post another guideline, "lines and patterns".

deejay4: I don't see anything wrong with the composition of this picture. except maybe the weather wasn't kind enough to give you a bluish sky. Is that a rock? or a piece of sack? I would've cloned that out since it looks like a peice of trash that was left behind.

If you look at the picture, your eyes tend to follow the curve of the shore. that's how it's supposed to be, it's supposed to make your viewer wonder where the shore will lead you, what on the other side.

good shot deejay.

Very helpful tip, sir!

For those who'd like to try this with a point and shoot camera, first, aim the center of the camera at the subject, then half click the button (this will need some practice), then move the camera to the proper framing, then press the button all the way through to take the picture.

Point and shoot cameras usually focus on the center of the lens only. Half clicking will make the camera focus, but not take the shot.

Hope this helps.

oo nga sir, ngayon ko lang napansin na hindi nga bluish yung sky... galing talaga...
dami ko natututunan. :cool:

piece of rock po yun sir, isinama ko talaga. yung actual appearance nung rock ok kaso hindi lang na-capture ng maayos nung cam ko.

also one thing sir,
yung pong rules of thirds po ba nakikita sa dslr yung rows and columns? or u have to edit it with a photo editor?

kung kagaya ko pong point and shoot lang ang gamit, paano po kaya ma-achieve na tama yung rules of thirds dun sa mismong time ng shooting?

deejay,

yung peice of rock hindi nahalata kaya mas magandang kung tinggal na lang, di ba?

may ibang dslr na may linya ang rows and columns ang iba, tulad ng camera ko wala. use your imagination na lang at makukuha mo rin yun. sana yan lang sir.

sa point and shoot, ilagay mo lang sir sa gilid ang main subject o isa sa mga subjects ok na rin yun. sabi nga nung isang nagpost dito, subukan mo yung half-click lang tapos ayusin mo ulit ang composition (ginagawa rin namin ito minsan sa dslr). ang composition kasi sanayan talaga, kailangan may "mata" ka para makita mo ang tama at maling composition ng isang litrato.

dagdag lang.

merong mga P&S din na may rows and columns.

pwede mo rin lagyan ng maliit na acetate ang lcd mo para makagawa ka ng mga linya. pero mas maganda kung masasanay ka ng wala.
