There are many camera techniques that can be used to achieve a certain appearance on a photo.
I have found some of these tutorials very useful as it covers many different settings such as Aperture, Shutter Priority Mode, Histograms, Automatic Exposure Bracketing (AEB) and more tips.
This website was very useful for information on taking photos outdoors where there is a lot of exposure to sunlight.
Here the sun is in front of the children.
This picture was taken at the same time, the only difference is that the sun is behind them
Composition & Camera Angles
I found this video tutorial very informative in terms of composition and camera angles.
1. Create a Grungy, Organic Composition in Photoshop
I like the composition in this image because the use of colours and media are put together very well. Looks almost like a tattoo.
2. Create a Vampire Portrait in Photoshop
This tutorial shows how to manipulate a portrait to make the person look like a vampire. I like vampire films so I’m a fan of vampires.
3. Create a Greek Sculpture Using Stock Photography and Photoshop
4. Combine Stock Photography to Create a Sleepy Japanese Village in Photoshop
I think this tutorial is fantastic. It shows image manipulation in various ways…Unbelievable!
STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL BY ANJU MIAH
This is the original image that we will use to create a photomontage in Adobe Photoshop.
STEP BY STEP
Using the ‘Rectangular Marquee Tool’ select a random part of the original image, right click and select Layer via Copy. Repeat until the whole image is covered, but keeping in mind that each time layers are created from the original image.
Also tick ‘Outer Glow’ and enter the settings above and click ok.
1. Without flash the colour appears to change and I have used the depth of field to focus on the flower clip whilst everything else in the environment if going out of focus.
2. Using flash has over powered the colour of the pink hair clip. I have used the depth of field to focus on the flower clip whilst everything else in the environment if going out of focus.
3. Using flash and the depth of the field.
4. Without flash and using the depth of the field.
5. Without flash, adjusting the white balance and using the depth of the field.
From the 5 photograph I like how the 5th photograph turned out.
The colour and depth of the field used gives this photograph the quality I wanted.
I had to adjust the white balance to capture the actual colour of the clips rather than using flash and exposing too much light into the frame.
