This week’s photoblogger of the week is Jóhann Guðbjargarson from the stunning photo blog – gudbjargarson.
Jóhann lives in Iceland and his photography reflects his travels around his country and the world. He’s been generous enough to share two beautiful images with us, to tell us a little about his digital camera kit and to share 3 digital photography tips.
Tip nr. 1:
Experiment with the creative settings on your camera, like the exposure modes (Tv, Av, M). I use Av 95% of the time and pay close attention to shutter speed. If the shutter speed is too little to handle the lighting and Aperture I use ISO to allow more shutter speed. Handle this settings along with ISO and aperture is vital to understand the camera and to gain full creative control over your photography.
Tip nr. 2:
Post processing is something that most serious photographers should study because it gives you that control to make your pictures pop. Although I seldom use Photoshop unless for preparing for printing it is a powerful tool to help making your photographs come to live. It is a complicated software but a good book will help out on the first steps.
Tip nr. 3:
I take all my pictures in RAW because it gives me so much control in post processing and gives me maximum quality for my pictures. I don’t recommend do shoot in RAW unless very serious about your photography because it is more work and needs dedication. I use Lightroom now for all my processing and cataloging and recommend looking into Lightroom or similar products.
