Digital camera macro modeWritten by Jakob Jelling
The digital camera is a wonderful device that allows a diverse variety of applications with its even diverse spectral collection of utilities. As technology progresses it brings along with it those intense pleasures that human beings have only thought of. Now digital camera has opened up dimensions for people and photographers in providing with liberty of capturing whatever they wish and of whatever type they prefer! Well magic words are macro mode. Although words might seem to be a bit deceiving they have really a great application in field of digital photography and digital camera as a device. In general digital camera macro mode allows a digital camera to photograph close-up pictures of petite objects like flowers, insects, coins, etc. Macro mode potentiality vary from camera to camera but almost all digital cameras offer this exclusive feature to enable users to widen up their imaginations and their weirdest fantasies in creating art.
Extending discussion further we can state that just about most of digital cameras has a macro mode. Each of these digital cameras can be verified of having macro mode because for each of them one of menu buttons will have an icon of a flower on it. This is macro mode button invariably. And thus has specific technology built in. The macro mode button, when pressed, switches camera into a special close focus mode and many allow photographer to shoot less than 10cm from picture subject. Many cameras of reputed companies like Nikon and Ricoh allows users to be as close as 3cm from picture subject that permits barely credible close ups of tiny objects such as little insects. The macro mode has a greater variety of applications in security measurements too. At times macro mode may be also useful for making photographic records of priced jewels for insurance purposes in order to prevent theft and fraudulent activities.
Black & white photographyWritten by Jakob Jelling
Photography is a diversified field of creating a spectral variety of art. It is a specialization that deals with different experimentations with colors, however it is also a fact that only shades of black and white can also do wonders in this zone of creative art. With advent of digital camera scope of this wonderful business has opened up new horizons for users and photographers who seek to explore new lands and trod ground of innovative creation and thus it can be aptly said that black & white can become more creativity with boon of digital photography and digital camera. This discussion is primarily aimed at exploring incipient information regarding blessing of digital camera in black & white photography so that novice as well as expert photographers can become richer in knowledge!
The exploration can be further extended in defining that a lot of modern digital cameras contain a series of mono modes in advanced menu settings. These can be used to become more creative with digital photography and in areas of black and white too. For example some of modes are as follows: Black & White that takes black and white photographs encompassing of a spectral range of gray tones. This gives black and white photographs a serious and ethereal look with richness and grandeur of past, present and future captures in just two tinges! Another mode is Sepia that again takes pictures in varying tinges brown tones. Looking into a matter a bit more technically, it can be stated that as digital camera is switched into any of these modes then color LCD becomes grayscale. The technology proceeds as in process pictures are taken color signals get recorded by CCD, but image is later de saturated when processed to remove all color.
A lot of interesting points exist in area of black and white photography using digital cameras. For example shooting in black & white becomes more interesting with use of filters. Experimentations can be done by enthusiastic photographers as to how a particular color would appear in black & white. This can be demonstrated by fact that perhaps a red filter placed over lens lightens any red color in picture making them appear as lighter shades of gray in comparison to other colors like blue green. This process can be very challenging and in same time very interesting! It is true that digital black and white photography can be used often for purpose of portraiture and taking pictures of landscapes and can also become very effective in abstract shoots offering a graphical view of subject to be photographed. The ultimate truth is that black and white digital photography can make world look complete different from what it is through human eyes.
