[quote=“JongawOlya”]I love picture No. 1 (The richness of the Green and Yellow color), No.3 (So is the rich solid dark chocolate color. Yum Yum!)
& mostly picture number 6. Love the red color and blurred background.
Anyway, I am new in photography.
Hopefully you can share a bit.
I was wondering, do you use Photoshop to boost up the richness of the colors?
Or was it is possible to just use plain photo shooting skills…
Maybe with the help of Flash light or differences lenses?
Is there any special lenses (instead of the usual default lenses that came together when buying a camera) required to shoot picture number 6 blurred background?
The blurred background just looks different to me. Different as in BEAUTIFUL!
By just using the setting available from the camera, I have try and tried… but most of the time… I just can’t capture such pictures with rich color.
Of course, one of the reason should be… “I DON’T KNOW HOW TO TAKE GOOD PICTURES”. ha ha ha…
That’s why I am hoping you can advise me.
If no color enhancement tools needed… Than obviously I am really sucks at photo shooting. heh heh heh
But if color enhancement tools are put to use… At least i know I am heading the right path to improve further… heh heh heh
Care to share? :)[/quote]
hehe actually that was all the camera. if you use nikon you can set the colour setting to vivid. that should make your colours pop!
if you ask me, im really not into flash, it ruins the natural colour of the subject (for me at least, or maybe i just suck at using flash). but i think most people only use flash when they take portrait photos. indirect flash meaning you bounce the flash off the ceiling or the wall. but i cant afford a proper flash so thats why i avoid using built in flash at all times.
the blurred background you can actually take with any lenses as long as you have an aperture setting. im using nikon d40x (very basic) and a standard kit lense (nothing special, the most basic you can get lol). as long as u have ur aperture open to the widest (aka lowest f-stop number), zoom it in, and focus you shud get that effect.
well thats what i can share with u, hope it helps
