The Challenges of Amateur Photography

Oh, You Have a Camera Too?

Whether it’s a digital camera or simply a smartphone, it seems like everyone has a photographic device at his or her fingertips these days.  Growing up, having a camera was something of a luxury for my family.  I remember as a child when we purchased our first waterproof camera.  We were so excited because not only was it waterproof, but it took panoramic shots as well. Imagine my mother’s delight when she would pay a hefty price to get the expensive panoramic pictures developed, only to find out that I had taken seven shots of silt-clogged ocean water and a couple crooked shots of people fishing from the pier!


In times past, getting film developed cost both time and money.  Definitely two things no struggling photographer that I know of has to spare! Film was expensive as well, so each shot had to be the shot. Every frame was precious, so with every press of the shutter came a certain amount of care and responsibility.  It all had to count, or none of it did.

Technology is both friend and foe to the photographer, allowing for better, faster ways to capture our shots and develop them, and also to share them with a wider range of people. Now you can upload your pictures directly from the camera to your computer and share them with a larger audience of people. How is this a problem, you might ask? Or maybe you already know. Go ahead and Google “wedding photographers.”

40,500,000 results…just for wedding photographers! Technology really changed the game with the introduction of digital cameras, allowing everyone access to a camera at any moment. This can be problematic when you are just one person trying to prove that you are a talented photographer, and distinguish yourself from everyone else with a camera.  Part of the work of photography is to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are the best, in whatever aspect you can. Landscapes? Portraits? Find your niche and rise above the crowd.

Just Point and Click, Right?

Many times in photography, something that affects us all, from novice to professional, is the question of purpose behind the frame. From the composition of each piece to its final finish lays a bevy of hurdles in both professional and personal life. Unlike many careers where you may have a structured set of tasks, photography is focused on art, which changes its nature. You have to focus on finding that one thing in each frame - either the ugly, the beautiful, the sad or the obscure - and piece it together like a puzzle with no definitive edges.


Photography isn't always about just knowing your camera - it’s about knowing your subject, the reason you’re taking the photo, and even what you intend to do with the images themselves. A quiet morning picture taken of a branch dipping into the water might be a lovely personal reminder, but would you try and sell that piece to a magazine? Because of the very flexible and often unforgiving aspects of photography, it can present many challenges to the photographers themselves.  Sure, you “point and click” your camera, but you always strive to have a certain amount of skill and creativity behind your work.  

Knowledge, or Inspiration?
   
Although there are no official rules to photography, there are plenty of unwritten rules that are generally accepted and enforced. There is no real “right” or “wrong” when it comes to creating art, but any experienced photographer can look at a “bad” piece of work and tell you what isn’t correct, from the high ISO to the poorly cropped frame, or the flash-shadow that’s flattening your composition.
   
Many photography instructors even argue that learning the overtly technical aspects of camera usage can hinder an amateur’s desire to continue with the process. When I took my first photography class several years ago, my teacher was adamant that we absolutely had to learn everything there was about the camera to take decent pictures. The first lesson that we had on the camera was learning about the f-stop.


I had never learned anything about cameras prior to that moment, and that was a frightening crash course introduction. It immediately went over my head and scared me away from even touching a camera for nearly a full week. The subsequent classes did little to relieve that fright, but what helped me the most was simply taking pictures. I did my best to find inspiration in each image, and that is what drove me onward.

Oftentimes, people may find themselves focusing on the more technical parts because they believe that to take great pictures you need to know your equipment inside and out. And this may be true…eventually!  However, the point of photography, the thing that creates great compositions, is the connection that we as photographers feel to the art.

I once asked that same teacher what she would advise to better my photography, and her answer surprised me. She told me that the best way to overcome the hurdles of amateur photography was to take as many photos as I could, and I would offer anyone else the same advice. Take pictures of everything, candid or staged. Get familiar with your camera, and learn what makes you tick, what makes you take fantastic photos. Once you know that, great photography is just around the corner.

What Makes a Good Panoramic Image?

There are a few ways to make panoramic images: using a panoramic camera that captures your scene in one image, stitching together a series of pictures, or cropping a single image to a panoramic aspect ratio. Which method you use doesn’t matter, but aspect ratio does.

Panoramas work by forcing the viewer’s eye to see things differently. Our eyes naturally see in about the same width to height ratio as a 35mm sensor, 3:2. Panoramas force us to deal with skinnier than usual frames, sometimes extremely skinny. This changes how we perceive what’s happening in the photograph.

If an image is technically competent and successfully exploits that difference in perception, it’s a good pano. If it doesn’t, it’s a bad pano. Now let me try to explain how this works...

There is no single definition of a panorama, but I’m going to use an aspect ratio of 2:1 or greater for an operational definition. An image 10” x 5” is 2:1. 10x 4 would be 2.5 to 1, and 10 x 3 would be 3.3:1. Panoramas may be either vertical or horizontal, though vertical panos are far less common than horizontals.

Generally speaking, panoramas wider than 3.5 to 1 start incurring a penalty: you have to print them large enough for the details to be plainly visible. If you print a 4:1 pano to one foot wide, it will only be three inches tall. You’d have to print the thing four feet wide to have an image one foot tall. Nothing wrong with that, but it is a limitation. Figure 1 below provides an example. The 6:1 pano below starts looking really good at 6’ wide – too wide for most situations. You might get something useful at 4’ wide (8” tall), but … MEH.

Neah Bay Harbor WA,6:1, 8 shots stitched. (Click to view larger image)
So why bother with panoramic shots? What makes panoramas special? The effects of aspect ratio for one- the wider the aspect ratio, the more we are forced to “read” the image, rather than take it in, in one large visual gulp. Panos also have two other main effects: they isolate the subject, or they lead the eye (sometimes both). I’m going to give a few examples to make these rather vague generalizations somewhat clearer.

Brooklyn Bridge., 3.5:1. (Click to view larger image)
This image (above) was stitched from 7 separate pictures, hand held. It tells the story of crossing the East River, and it works in two ways. First, the vertical compression (skinniness) forces us to stay focused on the bridge. Second, the opposing masses of South Street Museum and the distant column counterbalance each other, yet they are connected by the shallow arcs of the bridge deck. This is “leading the eye”. The panoramic form helps us to see the relationship between foreground and background and certainly reinforces the story being told.

Alpine Chapel, 2.5:1. (Click to view larger image)
This pano (above) is cropped from a 48 megapixel RAW file. The panoramic format limits the eye’s ability to range vertically, while the dark negative space contrasts with the white chapel, brightest object in the frame, which is positioned according to the Rule of Thirds. In this instance, the story of the picture has to do with the importance of religion in this isolated place, and with the question of how they get there – Snowmobiles? Helicopters?

North Dakota Bison, 2:1.
This is not a particularly good panorama (above), because the panoramic format doesn’t enhance the image. The aspect ratio isn’t reinforcing the composition, and the depth of field is already blurring the background, so there’s not much gained by removing background by cropping out the vertical dimension. The bison needs room to range! There’s nothing wrong with the shot, it just doesn’t benefit from the panoramic format.

Wyoming Rancher, 2:1.
In this shot, what’s been cropped is mostly sky (who needs it?), and while this is "Big Sky" country, it’s not needed to give you the sense of open range. The huge depth of field (the rancher and the horses on the ridge are both in focus) tells us all we need to know about the vastness of this space. This shot was a crop, not a stitch.

Base Jumper, 2:1 vertical pano.
In this pano (above), the constricted space is left-right, leading our eye down past the jumper to his highly doubtful landing space. There is no escape! A real story picture. Cropped full-frame image.

Having looked at a sample set of panoramas, it’s time for some generalizations about the difference between "good" and "bad" ones...

Characteristics of Good Panos
  1. Good panos use the wide aspect ratio to constrain our vision – and that has to be done for some positive reason, like improving the story-telling or the impact, or the composition of the image.
  2. Good panos move from some place, to some place. Alternatively, they focus on a specific subject.
  3. Good panos don’t make subjects feel cramped when they shouldn’t be (as in Figure 3). But they do limit surrounding space — if that’s used well, good pano, if not, bad pano.
  4. Good panos, like any good photo, tell a good story.
  5. The panoramic format helps the viewer concentrate on what’s important in the image, by limiting distractions and helping the eye go where you want it to.
  6. The basic structure of the image is horizontal (or vertical for vertical panos). Horizontal shapes, horizontal lines, stripes, striations, and patterns all work in horizontal panos.

Characteristics of Bad Panos
  1. A basically vertical subject is squished into a strongly horizontal frame. NEVER try to force vertical subjects or stories into a horizontal pano.
  2. It’s one thing to use aspect ratio to constrict the eye’s tendency to roam, and another to squeeze things so tight the subject is camped.
  3. Eliminating context, background, and negative space to no purpose.
  4. Just because an image is 2:1 or wider, doesn't automatically make it a good example of a panoramic image, as in the example below...

Washington pick-em-up truck, 2:1.
The above image doesn’t take advantage of the panoramic aspect ratio. The centered composition and square truck just don’t add up to an effective panorama.

You can even re-edit the same image like in the example below, which has a 2.5 to 1 aspect ratio and concentrates more on the rectangular truck bed, but it still doesn't work as a panoramic.

2.5:1 Still not a pano.

If you follow the guidelines above, you’ll get reliable results. But best of all, learn to see potential panos when you frame the shot in the first place!

Featured Item: iPro Lens System

Have you ever experienced a moment in the past where the perfect photo opportunity presented itself, and for some reason you didn't have a camera readily available to capture it?  We're pretty sure it's happened to all of us at some point.  However, those days seem to have fallen by the wayside with the advancement of cell phone cameras.  Now just about everyone has a camera within reach with their cell phone conveniently available in their pocket or purse.

Camera phones may not be quite the same as a dedicated digital camera, but it certainly helps ease the missed photo remorse when you just don't have a chance to grab your DSLR.  To enhance your camera phone capabilities, Schneider Optics has a nifty lens system they developed for the Apple iPhone 4 and 4s.  Now your creativity won't have to suffer if the only camera option available is your iPhone!   

iPro Lens System for the iPhone 4 and 4s.

The iPro Lens System comes with a wide angle lens, a fisheye lens, a case and a handle to maximize the camera feature of the iPhone 4 and 4s.  The protective case fits around the iPhone, and the lenses attach to the case via a bayonet mount.  The handle is a multifunctional unit that stores the lenses when not in use, attaches to the case for a more stable hold when taking a photo and provides a mount for a tripod (if you have a tripod available).           

At this time, the lens system is only available for the iPhone 4 and 4s.  However, Schneider Optics is currently in the process of developing and testing the system for the iPhone 5.

The iPro Lens System is a fun way to enhance your iPhone's camera.  Amateurs and professionals alike will be able to enjoy making the most out of their iPhone photos!

Rare Photographic Treasures on the Road

I love my job.  As one of KEH’s road buyers, I have to deal with a heavy traveling schedule where I am frequently out of town and away from my family.  At road show events, I usually have a minimum ten-hour workday, usually without a lunch break. The company provided phone essentially puts me on call 24-7 to camera stores and individuals who have questions about trade-ins.  None of these factors negate the fact that I get paid to play with camera gear. 

When a customer sits down in front of me, I never know what interesting piece of gear will be placed on the table.  What I really love is when an item is not only remarkable, but also sparks fond memories.  Recently, in Columbus, OH, a gorgeous Sigma 600mm f8 mirror lens did just that.  Usually, this lens has a mat white finish (like the one I owned back in the eighties) or professional black finish; however, this particular lens was the less common, but impressive, dark olive green. 


For those unfamiliar with a mirror lens, the design combines optics with mirrors in order to reduce its size.  Without the use of mirrors, the lens would be at least three times longer than its current 4.8 inches.  Along with the effective 12x telephoto (based on 35mm full-frame), it made the Sigma 600mm f8 mirror lens a popular low-cost alternative to lenses such as Nikon’s 500mm f4 & 600mm f5.6 or Canon’s 500mm f4.5 & 600mm f4.5.  It is worth noting that both Nikon and Canon made similar mirror lenses that were still more expensive than Sigma’s version. 

I remember taking my newly acquired (purchased used) Sigma 600mm to Green Mountain Park in north Alabama to shoot the local wildlife.  The high magnification makes use of a tripod mandatory, although some photographers chance only using a monopod.  On my first foray, I mounted the lens on a Nikon FG.  One quirk of a mirror lens is that it has a fixed aperture, so I loaded the FG with 400 ISO film under the assumption that the high film speed would provide me the range to shoot around the lake without any trouble.  I had no problems initially, but soon discovered that the Nikon FG’s maximum shutter speed of 1/1000 was too slow when shooting in bright sunlight on the lake.  I actually had more light than the camera could handle.


The issue was resolved by switching the lens onto my main camera, a Nikon FE2, which has a maximum shutter speed of 1/4000 of a second.  As an avid photographer, I always carried a backup camera (pre-digital), so I could readily shoot different films of the same subject.  I swapped out the low-speed slide film already loaded in the camera for a high-speed print film. This day became the first time I actually used the FE2’s 1/2000 and 1/4000 of a second shutter speeds. 

The lens quickly showed off its worth with tight shots of the brilliant mallards and wood ducks cruising on the lake.  I was able to get up close and friendly with a hungry squirrel that was noshing on an ear of dried corn supplied by the park workers.  The most pleasing images I captured with the 600mm that day were of the park’s gorgeous swans.  These majestic birds rule the lake and are not shy about posing for any willing photographer.  

 
One last quirk that is characteristic of a mirror lens is donuts.  Not the delicious treats available at your favorite bakery, but donuts caused buy the donut shape of the mirror lens’s front element.  Objects, particularly with bright spots, take on a donut shape when they are out of focus.  The bright points of light reflecting off of the lake provided a great example of this phenomenon.

Using a mirror lens today can still be a fun adventure.  Based on the design, a mirror lens cannot be autofocus, but a photographer could still take advantage of the high telephoto capability.   Also, being able to adjust the ISO to compensate for changing light conditions is a tremendous bonus for digital photographers. 

Checking out this familiar lens at the KEH road show reminded me of the many times I ventured out to shoot wildlife.  My wife still remembers me chasing a black bear through Cades Cove in the Smoky Mountains with that lens.  While I do not advocate the same reckless behavior, using a mirror lens can be a great experience for any photographer, and I did get some interesting shots of the bear.   My current top telephoto is only a 300mm zoom, as my current photography revolves around macro and snapshots of my kids.  I may have to look out for this lens when it is posted online.  That is, unless someone else beats me to it.
