SEE IN BOTH? OR NOT?

Most of us look at the world with two eyes. But whenever a person takes a picture, one of them closes. Maybe we should stop this practice forever?
With a few exceptions, cameras do not have two lenses at the same time. They create an image with a single lens, so the results are always two-dimensional.
However, when you look through two lenses, like through binoculars, you can perceive more depth in the picture. That is why we look with two eyes, it helps us to perceive the depth and distance between objects.
Closing one eye allows a person to see the picture in the same two-dimensional manner as the camera. This can be useful for previewing a photo. When you use one eye, you see the relationship between objects in your field of view differently. This can be especially useful when creating a portrait or photographing everything that you want to separate from the background. Continue reading

6 IDEAL WAYS TO NOT FEEL A FAILURE IN PHOTO

Perhaps every portrait painter who shoots in the open air faces a problem concerning the main points on which a good portrait depends, such as staging, lighting, composition, etc. And perhaps the biggest mistake made when shooting portraits outside the studio is the lack of attention to the background.
Photographers who do not carefully study the surrounding space in which a photo session takes place are doomed to failure. When they begin to review the footage, it is sure to find out that most of the pictures can be sent to the basket just because the background was not given due attention.

Ignoring the details of the background causes undoubted damage not only to creativity, but also to the financial component of the photographer. Continue reading

ONLINE ANALOGUE PHOTOSHOP FOR QUICK TREATMENT

In order not to occupy disk space and load the system, I do not install some programs on my laptop, including Photoshop. An intelligent color correction on a laptop monitor never goes out, and it is also not very convenient to clean the garbage and clean the skin with a touchpad. However, it also happens that the computer is not at hand, and an elementary correction of photographs is sometimes required.
For this purpose I use Photoshop online, more precisely, not quite Photoshop, but its online analogue Pixlr. For a quick correction, it has all the basic tools (in the picture above – the vertical panel on the right), as well as many features that are in the usual Photoshop (menu above).
After downloading, the editor offers to open the photo in many ways. You can download from your computer, you can open from the link: Continue reading
