Summer Photography Tips Part 1

Improve the Exposure

Always Check the Exposure!

This is one of the most important Summer Photography Tips:

If you shoot in any of the Semi Automatic modes (Shutter priority or Aperture priority), always check the camera warnings regarding the exposure. In summer time the daylight can get very strong and it can cause over exposed images.

If you are a manual shooter, you don’t need this problem. Another good reason for learning Manual shooting!

Over Exposed image

Use Aperture Settings to tell the story

One of the rules of Aperture is Depth Of Field. Select the correct Aperture to create Shallow or wide Depth Of Field to tell the story.

Shallow Depth Of Field

Low f-stop creates a Shallow Depth Of Field, which help you to enhance your subject in the photo.

Wide Depth Of Field

Higher f number results wider Depth Of Field, when you want to show the whole scene to the viewers

Use Faster Shutter Speed

Take the advantage of stringer daylight and shoot with faster shutter speed to freeze the action. Summer daylight is perfect for shooting at 1/4000s and capture amazing images of wildlife.

Fast Shutter Speed

Fast Shutter Speed (1/3000s) allowed me to freeze the movement of the bee.
