Do You Have a Tip to Share on Digital Photography School’s Blog?


Write-For-Digital-Photography-SchoolJust a short note to extend an offer to submit a tip/tutorial or article to the Digital Photography School Blog.

I’m heading away later in the week for a few days on business and would love to feature some of the wisdom of the wider DPS community while I’m gone.

What I’m looking for:

You guest posts here on the blog need not be long or particularly in depth. What I’m mainly looking for is helpful and practical tips on any aspect of digital photography. It could cover anything including on composition, post production/photoshopping, photography gear (buying or using it), landscapes, portraits, sports photography, beginner tips etc

You could also submit a ‘case study’ where you walk us through how you took or processed a shot.

The main thing I do like to always include is at least one image to give the post a visual point of interest – but apart from that it could be long, short or almost any form that you’d want to do it in.

Of course I’d like it to be well written and as helpful as possible – but really it could be something quite simple.

In return you’ll get a link to your photoblog, blog, flickr account, business (we have a readership of around 50,000 visitors a day at the moment – including RSS subscribers) and the satisfaction of knowing you’ve helped thousands of people improve their digital photography.

Interested? Simply shoot me an email via our Contact Form. Include your name, website/flickr account (if you have one) and the subject you want to write on and I’ll get back to you whether I think it’s something we can use.

Update – I should have mentioned that I can only use new tips/tutorials. If you’ve already published one elsewhere then I’ll need to pass as I don’t want to get into ‘duplicate content’ problems with Google (who can penalize for publishing the same thing in multiple places).

    well i think the only thing you can do is go to 800 ISO ...and try to keep the shutter around 1/200th...the best result would be around 1/500 ...its the journalist rule , im told ...i have used it a few times and it works !

    I've published a list of 101 tips for better photos on my blog. Feel free to use whichever ones you like but just be sure that you reword them so Google doesn't see them as duplicates. Here's the link:

    Rob have you played with "neat image"?
    it does an awesome job removing noise without to much blur.

    or just make the noisy pics black and white!

    also don't go with the fastest time play with shorter times and move the camera with the girls. have every thing else blurry.

    or get closer. less zoom = more light!
    during some school football games we are allow some on field for taking a few shots.

    I would like to give some tips for the beginners.

    1) Before taking any pictures look for the settings i.e. ISO, aperture, shutter speed...etc. and then shoot. Shoot as many times as possible by changing angle and any of these settings.

    2) I think using "Manual mode" is the best way to learn photography skills, as here you have full control on your camera.

    3) If you are shooting in night mode, to avoid camera shake "Take a deep breath and press the shutter button hold the breath till the shutter closes".

    4) If you are shooting portraits, ask the subject to look at the camera and focus only at the eyes of the subject...this is one of the best way to get best portraits.

    For the time being i am able to give this much of tips...more tips later!!!

    You could try increasing the ISO setting, but I imagine you've already tried that, as you are referencing "graininess".

    Have you tried a monopod to support the camera? A tripod might be too restrictive, but a monopod may just offer enough support. I had this same problem until I got an image-stabilised lens, which was worth it's weight in gold (well, not in gold, because it's much heavier than a non IS model).

    I have a question and don't know where to go to ask, so here goes. I am an amateur photographer. I mostly shoot pictures of our daughters soccer games. We make a DVD of the pictures and give it to all the players at season end. We decided on the Sony Alpha 100 camera. I mostly use the 75-300, 4.5-5.6 zoom lens. In bright sun, I really don't have much trouble getting nice shots of the action. But when the stadium lights come on and the daylight disappears, I have all knids of trouble getting anything. I mostly use a shutter proirity setting, but have tried to do complete manual shots also. I have tried all kinds of things, short of spending thousands for a fancy lens. We do this for nothing, and we have a low budget. Help. How do I get pictures that aren't blurry or grainy or just plain dark.
