Modern digital photography is very much connected with image processing programs. Sometimes it is the photo editor that creates exactly the photo that we ultimately consider the work of the photographer.
Modern digital photography is cunning, sometimes it turns into ordinary mathematical tricks, which I already wrote about in ‘Subpixels’, ‘Gigapixels’, ‘JPEG,‘ Tricks with RAW and ‘RAW Settings‘. Continue reading
For a modern photographer, it is vital to be able to get fast and accurate autofocus from the camera. In this post I will give my thoughts on how to work with autofocus for simple scenes using the optical viewfinder.
Focusing process different photographers call in different ways: focus, focus, focus, get into sharpness, achieve focus, achieve focus, catch focus. When communicating, I most often use the word ‘to focus, which creates two meanings at once -‘ to focus ’to the camera for optimal sharpness and объект to focus’ to the photographer on the subject.

The megapixel race continues, and now even mobile phones by their number can bypass very expensive SLR cameras.
36 MP for Nikon D800 and Sony 7R already surprise no one, even ‘bloated’ 41 MP for the Nokia Lumia 1020 cameraphone is something common and everyday. Imagine if matrices with pixels of the same dimensions as mobile devices were used on full-format cameras. Continue reading
This article describes how to stop time ’in pictures with the help of a camera.
When photographing moving objects, it is possible to ‘stop’ them using a photo and see the entire movement dynamics on a ‘stop-pause’. Such pictures almost always look very interesting and unusual, since in real time the human eye does not see what can be seen on a still frame. Continue reading
Once I wondered: ‘Why do my Nikon D700 RAW files weigh so little?’. In search of an answer, I found very interesting information.
So, when shooting, I sometimes use the RAW file format, (in Nikon it is called NEF – Nikon Electronic Format – Nikon electronic file format). Nikon’s RAW files have certain settings, I usually use 14-bit color depth with no loss or no compression at all. In general, NEF files with 14-bit color depth and without compression weigh about 24.4MB. In the image below, I showed the size of my files in bytes. Continue reading
