ISO Setting

Content and background of Compositionally I like to keep this type of photography uncluttered and simple as possible. And generally prefer to photograph on a white background (watch out for sharp shadows cast your Madeleine), and with minimal props. It would be advisable to include a glass of wine and at least from what usually happens on the table, if you’re going to photograph him. Shutter speed (speed gate) Another one of the options for getting more light camera is to use a long shutter speed.

Keep in mind, the longer the exposure, the greater the chance to catch any movements (as a model of fire from candles and camera movements). If the environment is completely immobile (fire on the candles do not flicker) and the model tries to be as fixed, set your shutter speed longer than 1 / 15 seconds – but still, do not overdo it, do not require the model too much. ISO setting is another way to compensate for the lack of light – to raise the value of ISO. Of course this has its drawbacks, the higher the value, the more noise (grain) in the photo.

Try not to put iso above 400, thus you minimize digital noise in photos (or grain when shooting on film). Exposition When candles are in the frame, then with high probability Automatic cameras will understate the exposure value, so that the candles were not solid bright spot. You can try to raise the exposure value, but the main thing here is not to overdo it.

English Pixels

Characteristics of digital cameras to pick up a digital camera, be aware of its main characteristics: matrix (CCD (CCD, Charge Coupled Device) matrix, the analog film): A very important feature because the quality of of the photographs depends on the number of minimal elements of pixels (pixel, from the English. picture element-'element image ') CCDs that make up the image. Determine the parameters of: a) the number of sensitive elements (not always coincides with the number of pixels in the resulting image, so when buying a digital camera take note: if it is named by the number of sensors or the number of pixels in the resulting shooting image, it's working or effective pixels) and b) the sensitivity (shooting in daylight and not very fast moving objects in the 50-100 iso sensitivity is quite sufficient), and c) the number of pixels of the image, working or effective pixels. Since ccd 1,3 Mpx (or 1,3 M pixels) allows to take photos with a maximum of 1280×960 ppi (pixels per inch, ppi), the matrix 2MPx-1600×1200 (A4 format (more 1900h1200 points, 2.3 megapixels)) , 3,3 MPx-2048×1536, 5,24 MPx-2560h1920 ppi (standard matrix: the ratio of width to height of the picture 1.33333, which coincides with the resolution of the monitor screen), and d) size – respec-tively, the more elements, the higher the resolution matrix and the exact color of the image. Today while some firms (eg, Canon) are actively using a different technology: cmos (CMOS) matrix. Tip: The best option: 3-megapixel camera, the resolution of the frame around 1984×1488 ppi (example, sony DSC-P72: 3.3 Mega-pixel matrix.
