In the following article, I explore the effects of aperture, exposure, ISO, flash, and camera motion on night photography. By utilizing some straightforward tricks, one can accomplish many interesting effects.
I wrote the following article as a guide for nighttime photography equipment. While I have upgraded my own equipment over the years, a simple consumer grade camera and tripod can open up the door to new opportunities. I suggest referencing the article as something to aim for, not an absolute requirement.
Using Photoshop’s photomerge function, multiple photographs can be stitched together, creating a seamless panoramic.
In the following article, I demonstrate how to take the right pictures, how to post-process images, and how to merge them together.
Out of the box, the D700 lacked a certain crispness, vividness, and balance I aim for in my photography. I’ve found that certain settings allow me to achieve that effect.
In the following article, I review ten settings I use on the D700 to achieve optimum results.
The setting I’ve adjusted most on my Nikon D700 is the white balance. I find the auto white balance a hit or miss feature. As a result, I’ve spent a lot of time fine tuning the default settings, as well as creating a few of my own.
In the following article, I review the options the D700 offers to adjust white balance.
When I got involved in professional digital photography, whether to shoot in RAW or JPEG was an important consideration. Ultimately, I chose RAW.
My opinions resonate with Nasim Mansurov, who wrote the best article on the debate. He covers the advantages and disadvantages of RAW and JPEG formats, providing some nice visuals as well. Ultimately, he advocates ‘serious photographers’ shooting in RAW format, whereas recreational photographers should shoot in JPEG format.
For more information on why I chose RAW, you can read my article. I strongly suggest converting your RAW file to DNG, as DNG offers better forward compatibility, better compression, one file instead of two per image, and better interoperability.
Please note that RAW files aren’t always compatible with certain versions of Photoshop. I had to upgrade to Photoshop CS4 to process RAW files from my Nikon D700.
