Digital Photos : 5 Ways To Get More From Your Point And Shoot Camera!

It would be nice if everyone else can capture images the way seasoned photographers do. But then again, not everyone else is gifted with a creative eye. Moreover, getting a Digital Single Reflex Camera or DSLR for the shoot of vibrant, ultra clear and life-like digital photos would come across as an expensive hobby – especially if you only intend to use the equipment 3 or 4 times in a year.  Given this usage frequency, a mid-range point and shoot digital camera would already suffice.  Below are 5 digital photo tips to help a novice photographer get started on this fun endeavor.

#1 Set DigiCam Resolution Settings to Maximum. What’s the use of high res point and shoot cameras, if you won’t tap into its potential to capture up to 14 megapixel resolution digital photos.  A pixel packed image gets a lot of details preserved. Now that would give you clear, crisp images when viewed from the PC monitor and leave much detail for a large photograph if you intend to print the images on a photo printer.

 

#2 Stock up on Memory Cards. Perhaps the only downside to low compression images is that these eat up a lot of digital storage space.  But memory cards are getting cheaper and cheaper everyday so that it won’t really cost you that much to buy another 4 GB memory card or invest in a 160GB memory stick to have enough memory space for upcoming digital photos.

 

#3 Get a Tripod. Sure, your digicam is set with Anti-Blur technology or an Optical Image Stabilization feature so that shaking and blurring should be the least of your concerns.  Nonetheless, using a tripod can help you obtain better picture quality in low light conditions and whenever the digital zoom feature is activated.

 

#4 Practice your camera’s settings. Even your handy point and shoot camera comes outfitted with preset features that would be useful to the novice photographer.  Canon digicameras provide ISO options that can be adjusted to the highest ISO rating in low light conditions. Nikon cameras meanwhile provide preset modes that the user can activate depending on the lighting conditions of his location, be it indoors, at the beach, at night or when covering fast action sporting events. Getting yourself acquainted with the camera’s setting will help you turn out better quality digital photos than when shooting only in automatic mode.

 

#5 Learn basic photo editing software. Capturing images from your point and shoot is only half the story since digital images can be edited to enhance its quality. If Photoshop or Corel Photo editor is too tricky for you, at least explore Picasa or the Microsoft Photo Editor. These are user friendly photo editing software that comes with preset photo editing functions such as color enhancement and red eye reduction.  After enhancing the image quality of your digital photos, photo printing typically follows. Well, be sure to have a dependable inkjet around such as the Xerox Phaser 8200. For supplies, you have the option of using compatible Xerox solid ink sticks to get more colored prints for half the price of OEM supplies.

 

Of course, you won’t get the same image quality compared to digital photos captured with the pricey digital SLRs and their even pricier lenses. But surely you can turn a point and shoot digital image into a work of art by observing the digital photo tips presented.

    DSLRS these days are so great because they have high megapixel count. ^
