Back button focus

According to an established tradition, autofocus is activated by pressing the shutter button halfway, and pressing it fully releases the shutter. However, it is often much more convenient to separate the shutter release and autofocus. Back-button focusing or back-button focusing is an autofocus control scheme that is not very popular among amateurs, in which autofocus is activated not by the shutter button, but by an independent button on the back of the camera.

Some cameras have a special focus button AF-ON, and some allow you to reprogram the AE-L / AF-L button so that it is responsible for autofocus, and not for exposure lock. Continue reading

Macro shot

The word “macro photography” usually means photographs taken on a sufficiently large, but still not microscopic scale, i.e. from about 1:10 to 1: 1. Pictures with a scale exceeding 1: 1 are already referred to as microphotographs, and everything smaller than 1:10 is considered just a close-up. The given ranges of scales are very arbitrary, and can serve only as guidelines, and not in any way rigid boundaries between individual genres of photography.
Perhaps the reader does not quite own the concept of scale, and the numbers 1: 1 tell him little about what? There is nothing complicated here. The shooting scale is the ratio of the linear dimensions of the subject to the linear dimensions of its image projected by the lens onto the matrix or film. A 1: 1 scale means full-size Continue reading

RAW or JPEG?

The electrical signal generated at the time of shooting by the matrix of a digital camera enters the camera processor as an array of digitized, but not yet processed or, if you like, “raw” data. This data is then either recorded without further processing on a memory card in the form of a so-called. RAW-file, or pre-processed by the camera processor, which forms a full-fledged image on their basis and saves it in JPEG format. JPEG photos are the final product of the photographic process and are fully suitable for viewing, printing, publishing on the Internet or any other practical needs. Pictures saved as RAW files must be edited in a special converter program, which allows you to convert raw data provided by the matrix into a graphic image in JPEG or TIFF format. Shooting in RAW is used in cases where the photographer for one Continue reading
