Thanks! Share it with your friends!
Here I give some tips on how to get the sharpest possible image from your camera, by reducing any for of blur caused by camera shake. Best tripod I could find http://amzn.to/Xd9FQr A good lens,…
and why no tripod ????
All good and everything, but the whole Shutter Delay or Shutter Lock as it
a called on other cameras, is not necessary. Since you are using the
Speedlight as your ONLY light source, you are already shooting at extremely
high speeds, that given then correct settings (flash power output) can
freeze a flying bullet in your frame.
The Shutter Delay mode would be necessary though if you used natural light
alone. Or a combination of natural + fill / flash light.
Just wanted to make that clear.
PS. Using a flash as your ONLY source even enables you to use NO tripod at
all, provided you can compose exactly as you wish.
Good video but for jewelry I prefer using continuous lighting
For those wondering. You can do the shutter delay thing by using Live View
if your camera has it. It locks the mirror up. This is more common on newer
cameras though a lot of older Canons have this too given they also shoot
video where most older Nikons did not.
As for remote firing. Connecting it to your computer via USB then using
Tethered Capture in something like Aperture or Lightroom will do the trick
too. I’m guessing most people will have a computer even if they don’t have
a remote shutter release trigger lol.
You are amazing. I like the speed and way you explain everything.
we can also use a remote
what were your settings?
You can further improve sharpness by using Live View and then zooming move
the focus box manually, and then guarantee you are focusing on the right
part of the object. After that, timed shutter helps even with cable
release. Otherwise spot on.
Dude, that is a really odd composition for your video. The slanted ceiling
is making me uneasy.
verry good tnx
Can I use the timer shutter instead?
I am a newbie.
and stuff abotu ur remote…
u know that ur remote with cable make camera shacke what u dont realize
?..use zoom in live view zoom to maximum and play with cable..play liek u
take a shoot.. u got shacke.. so.. u making vid abotu sharp image but
Excellent Video! Thanks.
Double focal length means that your objects move about twice as fast when
you are shaking your camera. Thats why you should also have only half of
shutter speed. As for the rule of thumbs just happen to work quite well,
but it is not scientifically made or provable. It just works quite well. Of
course many other factors affect if it is shaken: how stable you stand, if
you are using anti-shake system of your camera or lens, luck, etc. Also for
example in macro photography other rules apply.
why dont you use a light tent ? cuz i do a lot of jewlery shoots
OH No What Happenned
@ManicEightBall stopping all the way to f22 is a bad option..you would want
to preferable stick to f8-11 at most. more than f16 generally will cause a
slight lack of sharpness due to image difraction..google it up..
@nerwin Just set your camera to timer shot mode of 2s or 5s. save the cash.
no, they are seperate things, check the manual of your camera, it explains
You might be def. Just saying. Because this man is very smart and
Have you tried focus stacking?
Your videos just keep getting better and better. Thank you!
Very good! Helpful! Thanks!
Hey Dom, Is that Exposure Delay Mode the same as Second Curtain Flash?
Sounds that way. Nice video, thanks a lot man!
were could we find exposure delay mode in canon 5d mark iii
I also use my Live Preview to sharpen my images – on my tripod of couse
with the shutter speed of 250 and over and with the use of flash, using a
small aperture of around f6.0-f8.0, a skilled photographer can get the
sharpest image out of his shot.
