Producing a sharp razor blade is the desire of many who whet lovers of photography, and a variety of features, as well as additional accessories, have been created to help us produce sharp photos. From tripods, stabilisers (lenses or camera) to the software image editor that comes with the tool to sharpen the end result photo.


This article will summarize a few tips to keep your photos sharper:

How to hold the camera.

How to hold the camera is very influential on the stability of the camera (read: sharpness of photos), please read how to hold the camera is good.

Shutter Speed.

If you accelerate shutter speed, then your images will be increasingly sharp. Remember the rule that a photo is sharp when you take pictures handheld: “use the shutter speed faster than your lens focal length”.

* If the length of your lens is 50 mm potretlah with shutter speed 1/60 seconds or faster
* If the length of your lens, use a shutter speed of 100 mm, 1/125 seconds or faster
* If your 200 mm lens length, use shutter speed 1/250 second or faster.



The Aperture effect on depth of field (focus area in the photo). Reducing the aperture (enlarging the number of your choosing, for example, f/22) will add depth of field, meaning that the sharp area in the photo will be greater including objects that are close or far away, so the sharpness of the photo overall is quite reduced.
Then do the opposite, select a larger aperture (smaller number, e.g. f/4), then you will focus sharply just near the focus area. Choosing large aperture lets you get a faster shutter speed.



Adding ISO number will accelerate shutter speed as well as allows you to select the aperture. If you’re photographing indoors, zoom is the ISO, but don’t overdo it (eg: select ISO 600 to photograph in the House). Choose ISO too high (above 800), which can cause noise (small black spots) in the photo to begin to look.



Don’t just believe with an autofocus camera, check carefully using your eyes in the focal point is located. When photographing a face in close range, make sure the focus falling diarea eyes. When photographing objects, make sure the focus is there where you want the area most sharply. Autofocus cameras could be wrong and thus drop focus beside the object that you want.



If you happen to have an SLR camera, choose the best lenses you can buy. Good quality lenses can drastically improve the sharpness of your photos. The lens KITS are usually offered for sale as a complete package with the camera usually its crappy quality. My advice, if you will buy a new SLR camera, buy it separately between the camera (body only) and the lens. Don’t buy the KIT package. Good quality lenses are usually marked with a large aperture (e.g. f/2.8).


Sweet Spot Lens

The lens has a sweet spot – his respectively. A sweet spot is certain where the lens aperture will produce the sharpest images. Sweet spot lenses usually are two stops above the maximum limit of the ability of the aperture of the lens. For example, for a lens f/2.8 then his sweet spot is f/5.6. Then use aperture f/5.6 If you take a picture with that lens, your photos will be sharp as a whet razor blade.



The Tripod is cumbersome and inconvenient, but if you “sudi” bring it on, you will gain a sharper image. Especially if you want to generate a photo HDR or panorama, be carrying a tripod.
