Digital single lens reflex (SLR) cameras are becoming more popular for amateur and professional photographers. For those of you that have been photographing for any length of time, you know how aggravating it can be when the weather is bad or there is fog or excessive rain. The automatic settings on many SLRs can be turned off and the camera will stop recording pictures until the conditions change. You can either leave your camera running around doing things without a chance of actually taking a picture or set up some kind of schedule to try to capture the changing weather patterns during your daily rounds. If you want to take advantage of a DSLR that offers this feature, there are a few tips that may help you.
A good DSLR tip is to use a live preview while you are setting up the lighting and background for your photo shoot. Most of the automatic settings on cameras today allow you to preview the photos to see how they will look when they are completed, but not all of them do. A good DSLR tip is to preview your photos with the focus set on manual, then change the focus to aperture priority with the flash enabled. This will let you have a few choice settings in a live photo session to see how everything will turn out.
If you want to get the most out of your photography, there are a variety of different tips that you can follow to make each photograph say a lot more than a picture taken on an SLR camera in the dark. You can use a larger aperture in a picture taken in less light to get a higher density of light and a clearer background. Also, using a lower f-stop in a picture with a larger amount of light can make the background blurrier because of the blurring effect of the large object in the foreground. These are just a few user tips that you can implement that can make your photography stand out in a crowd.
