Putting 10 Recommended Techniques from Colleagues into Practice

By: Chris Taylor

Some of the suggestions overlapped. Therefore, I am using four colleagues to complete this assignment.

Macro PhotographySuggested by Luis Mejia

This will be the next 4 slides

Macro Mode (Tulip)

  • Luis suggested using the macro mode to take pictures that are close up.

  • This picture is of a berry tree and is a close-up of the berries themselves.

  • With the macro zoom and the use of a flash, the berries stand out in this picture.

Parallax Phenomenon (Be Careful of What Is In the Viewfinder

  • For this concept, I took two pictures to contrast the phenomenon.

  • In the past, one would have to look through a “small” opening to take a picture.

  • With the newer cameras, one only has to look at what is on the LCD screen before snapping the shot.

  • The first photo is just aiming at the object and snapping and the second one takes the parallax phenomenon into consideration and then is adjusted to focus on the berries better.



Depth of Field

  • Luis suggests using this concept to help bring what is in the foreground into focus or center of attention by making the background blurry.

  • In this picture, the berries are sharp but the background is blurry allowing one to sense the depth of field of the picture.

Zoom In

  • To gain a unique perspective on a subject, Luis recommends zooming in as much as possible to create a special picture.

  • To accomplish this, I have taken two pictures of the same palm tree.

  • The first picture would be a typical picture of a palm while the second one focuses on the center portion giving a new perspective to a familiar photo subject.



Nature Photography:Suggested by Sarah Smetzer and Jennifer Lingerfelt

Quality of Light (Smetzer)

  • To make sure that pictures taken outdoors turn out desirable, one must consider the quality of light.

  • Many times, the sun is the only source of light when taking pictures in nature.

  • However, sometimes we may need to add a little “light” to the subject.

  • In the first photo, the palm tree was pictured without a flash. It is a good picture.

  • However, the “green” of the palm is more vibrant in the second picture by adding the flash.

No Flash



Picture within a Picture (Smetzer)

  • Sarah Smetzer also suggests trying to focus on a picture within a picture.

  • Do not just look at the whole scene, look for “hidden treasures” within the scene.

  • The first photograph is of our flower bed that needs weeded .

  • The second photo is of a “picture within a picture.”




Within a


Boundaries (Smetzer)

  • When taking a picture, one must pay close attention to what is in the frame of the viewfinder.

  • If not, unwanted objects or obstructions will distract from the photograph.

  • The first picture is when “carelessness” was taken while taking the picture.

  • The second picture was taken with the boundaries or frame taken into consideration.

Bad Frame

Good Frame

House on the Hill (Lingerfelt)

  • When taking pictures in outdoors, Lingerfelt suggested that serene pictures of houses could be an added plus to anyone’s portfolio.

  • At Blue Springs State Park in Orange City, Florida, the historical Thursby House is a great example of this type of photograph.

Low Light Photography:Suggested by Hap Aziz

Use a Tripod

  • When lighting conditions are not the best, using a tripod will be beneficial in creating “crisp” pictures.

  • The first photograph of the berries (seen earlier in this presentation) was taken about one hour before sunset with an overcast. The tripod was very helpful.

  • The second picture was taken without a tripod and I wish I would have had it with me. It is a great shot of my son but it would have been even better with the tripod. Please notice it is a little blurry.

Do not use a flash all the time

  • You do not have to use a flash all the time.

  • Sometimes the low lighting will provide great pictures.

  • This picture was taken of a cannon inside the Thursby House at Blue Springs. I used the flash and notice how it “washed” it out.

  • This was an example of why not to always use the flash.
