Welcome to your all-new
The definitive guide to SLR photography

S

o there I was, standing on Solsbury Hill near Bath (Peter Gabriel fans will know it), and it struck me again how lucky we are in this country – there’s so much photogenic scenery within striking distance. The challenge is finding the time to make the most of it, so to help our readers to seize the day, our main feature this issue (starting on page 36) is about shooting from dawn ’til dusk. Intrepid mag staffers Ben Brain and Paul Grogan start shooting as the sun rises and don’t pack up their SLRs until after dark, passing on essential tips and insights that you can use to get great shots of a place – whatever time you get there, and however pushed your schedule. On the subject of time-savers, don’t miss the two free field guides that come with this issue. They’re full of advice and inspiration on photographing wildlife and landscapes, and are small and durable enough to carry around on photo shoots. Enjoy the issue and keep in touch!

For effective metering. even so. one option is to stick with the Evaluative mode and to dial in an appropriate amount of +/-EV (Exposure Value) bias. So don’t second-guess it… What you see isn’t always what you get. generally referred to as exposure compensation. there’s no substitute for nailing the correct exposure setting to do full justice to the most important aspects of a scene. you might need to apply between +2EV and +3EV exposure compensation. Most current D-SLRs feature systems that can effectively boost dynamic range. The background will most likely be washed out to white. is a catch-all mode where the camera’s light metering system takes in the whole frame and makes a best guess at the exposure setting that will give a good balance. but the all-important skin tones in the Ben Brain (Future) Digital Camera October 2010 . so photographic images often have washed-out highlights or lack detail in the shadows. Evaluative metering. also known as Multisegment or Average metering. in a heavily backlit portrait. is that a ‘good balance’ is often the last thing you want. The human eye copes with high-contrast scenes much better than digital cameras do. such as Canon’s Auto Lighting Optimizer and Nikon’s Active D-Lighting but.

You may still need to apply a little exposure compensation for perfect results. It’s usually best practice to take readings from several points in a scene and to average out the readings to attain the best overall exposure setting. Spot metering In this metering mode.

Take a subsequent reading if necessary. so beware when focusing on particularly light or dark objects in a scene and then recomposing the frame.

So switch to Manual mode and you can dial in the exact exposure values you want. completely disregarding everything outside respectively small and tiny areas of the frame. At the other end of the scale. at the expense of lowlights (which are generally of secondary importance) descending into gloominess. dreamylooking skin tones. a camera’s in-built light meter sets an exposure that corresponds to the amount of light reflected from an 18% grey card. Try bracketing your exposures. 2 PHOTO SCIENCE Why this photo works 1 Try under-exposing 3 1 With a restrained exposure value. with great colour saturation. One of the joys of digital is that you can review images as you shoot. For ultimate accuracy when reviewing shots. which often isn’t enough for very tricky lighting conditions. The Centre-weighted option automatically gives metering prominence to the central region of the frame. It’s true that if you shoot in RAW you can adjust the EV at the editing stage but. If the peaks are mostly on the left. so you can see blown highlights and re-shoot if necessary. Over-expose instead Blinking highlights portrait should be lively and vibrant. for example. you’re taking a portrait of somebody with fair skin. when shooting a subject against a very dark background. Switch to Histogram view for a graphical representation of exposure. as green grass typically corresponds very closely with the reflected light value of 18%. err on the side of under-exposure. it’s vital to make a distinction between ‘accurate’ and ‘good’ metering. you’ll still need to add around +0. without them blowing out to pure white. For greatest accuracy in tricky light. taking several shots across a spread of EV settings. Take full control in Manual shooting mode for ultimate flexibility Many cameras only offer as little as +/-2EV exposure compensation. DO IT YOURSELF. it’s worth switching to a more selective metering mode. rather than having to wait until your films are developed to check exposures. Similarly. Partial and Spot go a step further. you’ll need to be within half a stop of the ideal EV when shooting. which are usually lost forever. making for beautiful.. It’s easier to boost brightness at the editing stage than it is to recapture blown highlights. usually resulting in wonderfully vibrant scenic shots. a bit of overexposure will make images look more like nature intended. 3 The lowlight areas are rich and dark. for very bright outdoor scenes like snowy mountains or palecoloured beaches.

edian Blur is a filter perfectly suited to smoothing skin. A mild Gaussian Blur should also be applied as the smoothing effect of the Median filter will split the colours into visibly flat tones with the visual effect of a comic strip. Once the Median image layer is blended with the original image it will gently smooth the skin.

How we retouched our portrait

Correct the colour tones

The shot was suffering from a slight colour cast. To correct this we used the White Balance tool and then adjusted the Temperature slider to warm up the tones.

We used the Median filter to smooth the skin on a duplicate layer, and then reduced the opacity of the layer to give a natural end result.

Remove spots

By using the Spot Healing Brush we were able to quickly remove spots with a single click, without affecting the detail and tone of the skin.

To sharpen up our model’s facial features we used multiple selections to select just the eyes, teeth and hair – this way we managed to avoid any introduction of noise in the smoothed out skin.

The model/toy look is really on trend. Paul Grogan shows you how easy it is with selective blur
y limiting the depth of field in an urban scene so that only a narrow band is in focus, it’s possible to make it look like a miniature model. This illusion works because models are usually photographed using macro lenses, which tend to reduce depth of field and throw everything in the foreground and background out of focus. Our brains are so used to this convention that when we see a scene with an extremely narrow depth of field we’re momentarily fooled into thinking that the objects in the scene must be tiny. This tilt-shift effect, as it’s known, is very popular at the moment, and can be seen in everything from TV adverts to property shows. It’s traditionally achieved using a tilt-shift lens. This enables you to limit depth of field to a very narrow band by tilting the front elements of the lens – either horizontally or vertically – so that they’re no longer parallel with the rear elements. Thanks to the power of layers and the versatility of the Gradient tool in Elements and CS, however, you can avoid the expense of buying such a lens and recreate the effect in a matter of minutes…

Create a duplicate

1

Open tiltshift_before.jpg in Elements. Right-click on the Background layer. Select Duplicate Layer from the drop-down. Call this layer Blur, then click OK. You can now blur this layer without affecting your original Background layer – this is important because you’re going to need this sharp Background layer later on.

To blur the layer you’ve just created, make sure it’s selected in the Layers palette and then go to Filter>Blur>GaussianBlur. In the window that appears, set Radius to around 15 pixels, then click OK. This will completely blur your duplicate layer, temporarily obscuring the sharp layer below.

Add some blur

“When shooting potential tilt-shift images of your own, try to look out for vantage points that allow you to get up high, as model towns tend to be shot from above, rather than at ‘street’ level. Looking down adds to the illusion of a world in miniature.”
Paul Grogan, technique editor

Photoshop Elements doesn’t have Layer Masks, so click the half-moon icon at the bottom of the Layers palette and select Levels. Next, drag the Adjustment Layer you’ve just created below your Blur layer. Holding down Alt, hover your mouse between these two layers and click to ‘clip’ them together.

With the Levels Layer Mask selected, grab the Gradient tool and select Foreground To Background. Click on the cylinder icon. Draw a short vertical line between the pool and the roof of the building. This creates a black mask that masks out the Blur layer to reveal the sharp layer below.

Keep redrawing the line until you get the effect you want. Select the Blur layer. Click on the half-moon again, this time selecting Hue/Saturation. In the adjustment pane, drag Saturation up to +20 to give the colours a boost, making them look more like the overly bright colours of kids’ toys and models.

Convergence varies
educing the horizontal convergence of the pool in step 6 helps add to the toytown illusion. If you shot a model of a tall building from level with its base, the sides would hardly converge at all, because the building would be so small relative to the field of view of the lens. The same is true of horizontal convergence.

The latest incarnation of Adobe Camera Raw boasts a number of powerful new processing tools. We’ll put all of these powerful tools through their paces in this advanced walkthrough to show you how to make a good shot great. film photographers knew that when they pressed the shutter button that was only half their task to capture a perfect print. but that’s like criticising an undeveloped negative. the image is crammed full of information regarding the scene’s colours and tones. However. Only by processing your RAW files in Photoshop’s Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) editor can you really assess the quality of the images and create a perfect picture. the selective Adjustment Brush lets you dodge and burn specific areas. The job would continue in their darkroom as they developed the negative – dodging and burning selective areas to reveal detail where it was required. and the Spot Removal tool clobbers ugly sensor spots into submission.com/resources/dcm/DCM104_Advanced_RAW. traditional film-based photographers used (and still use) Neutral Density filters to help them avoid over-exposing the sky while preserving a scene’s colours.

zooming in on... serif PhotoPlus X4
A quick tour of the software’s key tools and features
X4 applies enhancements as Adjustment Layers, just like latest versions of Photoshop

PhotoPlus x4

Layers and masks are handled in the same way as Photoshop. You can import and export PsD files

these PhotoFix adjustments can be used to apply a set of non-destructive adjustments

the Tools palette offers similar tools to Photoshop. the arrow indicates further options

though, and each time you move a slider it starts all over again.

tWo eDitors in one?

There is one thing in PhotoPlus that Photoshop does not have, and that’s its PhotoFix mode. It’s powerful, in that you can use it to apply a range of adjustments including white balance, lighting, Curves, lens distortion and Unsharp Mask, then the adjustments are applied as a PhotoFix adjustment attached to the current layer. It’s even possible to use a mask for these PhotoFix filters, which automatically selects similar areas, rather like an intelligent selection brush (though, as with the Cutout Studio, the selections aren’t always particularly refined).

“PhotoPlus is fine if you know your way around an image editor, but not if you’re just starting out”
However, it’s odd that PhotoFix duplicates many of the tools and processes you’d apply outside this window using the normal adjustment tools. It’s like using two image editors in one, which is unnecessarily complex. There are many areas where PhotoPlus lacks finesse or depth, but it makes up for it with value for money. You also get Serif’s new AlbumPlus Organiser (a simpler version of the Photoshop Elements Organizer) and PanoramaPlus.

What you don’t get, though, is much beginner-friendliness. PhotoPlus is fine if you already know your way around an image editor, but not if you’re just starting out and need a helping hand. It does have a series of step-by-step guides and video tutorials, but it’s not the same as the simple editing modes available in Photoshop Elements, say. PhotoPlus X4 is fantastic value and a great buy for more experienced photographers on a budget. But it’s not aimed at the same level as Photoshop, and not quite as novice friendly as Elements, either, so it lies somewhere in the middle.

Meet the rivals…

We say… PhotoPlus x4 offers photographers the Photoshop experience at a fraction of the price, but while it does provide excellent value for money, it has some rough edges. so long as you bear this in mind, it’s a great buy. Digital Camera october 2010

Using off-camera flash is one of the easiest ways to transform your flash photography

Get professional lighting effects with your hotshoe flash
emoving the flash from your hotshoe gives you the flexibility to direct the light independently from the camera, enabling you to create directional effects or even backlight subjects with relative ease. The Pocket Wizard Plus II Twin kit consists of two identical units that can act as both receiver or transmitter. One plugs directly into the hotshoe mount on your camera, the other plugs into your flash’s PC sync (or into the PC Sync socket attached to your flash). Once it’s in place and set to the same channel, you’re ready to go. The back of the units have three simple buttons from which you can select transmit mode, channel (select the same

for both) or test the system. As the units work with most models of camera, the usual ETTL for Canon or equivalent flash metering systems for other models won’t work, so you do need to use flash on manual and adjust as necessary. They’re easy to set up and straightforward to use. Once you’ve adjusted the power of the flash, you can shoot from up to a staggering 1,600 feet away, which is great for lighting subjects that are difficult to get close to, such as wild birds. The downside is the relatively steep price, but if you want a wireless flash system that will work with hotshoe and studio lights this is a great solution.

In use, the gels work well, so if you’d rather use a rather old-school solution than photoshop, this is a good buy.

ost D-SLRs come complete with a kit lens that has an effective zoom range of roughly 28-80mm, which is adequate at the wide-angle end but leaves you bereft of telephoto reach. The conundrum is whether to supplement your standard lens with a telephoto, or ditch your kit lens for an all-in-one superzoom, such as the Tamron 18-270mm VC. There’s no denying that superzoom lenses are enormously convenient but, when it comes to optical quality, they’re a bit of a compromise, typically being less sharp (and having more irregular distortions) throughout the zoom range. For those serious about photography, the sensible money goes on a telephoto zoom, but how much do you need to pay? A fast 70-200mm telephoto zoom with a constant f/2.8 aperture will typically cost between £1,000 and

ptical stabilisation systems all work in essentially the same way. The lens contains a ‘floating’ group of elements, driven by a microprocessorcontrolled system that senses lens vibration and applies an equal, opposite movement to cancel it out. The idea is that the image is stabilised before reaching the sensor. It works best if you allow a second or so between activating autofocus and taking the shot.
£2,000 so, unless you’re going to be using it all the time or have deep pockets, it’s a pretty expensive option. On the other hand, more modest telephoto zooms with a maximum aperture stretching from f/4-5.6 as you go through the zoom range, start at little more than £100, rising to just over £400. They’re not built to take the knocks of full-on professional usage like more upmarket glassware but, at a fraction of the cost, they still have a lot to offer. In terms of sharpness, contrast and overall picture quality, it’s often difficult to spot the difference between these budgetfriendly options and the big boys. sensors, so one of the first decisions to make before buying a telephoto zoom is whether to go for one that’s specifically designed for this type of camera, or splash out on a full-frame compatible model. As always, there are pros and cons to both sides, and you can’t sit on the fence. A bonus of an APS-C-specific telephoto zoom is that it’s likely to be more compact and lightweight than a full-frame equivalent. Indeed, some of the APS-C and Four-Thirds lenses in our round-up are less than half the weight of full-frame versions, making them an attractive proposition for those who may be carrying or using lenses for hours on end. The downside is that you don’t get as much outright telephoto reach – most APS-C lenses have zoom

How we test lenses Advice you can trust
e use a two-stage testing system that combines real-world shooting scenarios and rigorous lab tests. To start with, we check the handling characteristics of each of the lenses, ensuring that the zoom and focus rings operate smoothly and precisely, and that the natural placement of these rings enables comfortable use. Moving on, we check the speed, accuracy and quietness of autofocus systems, complete with extras such as full-time manual focus override, where fitted. To accurately gauge the

effectiveness of the lens’s optical stabilisation, a series of handheld shots is taken at increasingly slower shutter speeds so that we can check for consistent levels of sharpness in the results, compared with having stabilisation switched off. Other factors include overall build quality and value for money. For optical quality, all in-camera features that might flatter lens performance, including corrections for peripheral illumination, lateral chromatic aberration and distortion, are switched off.

ranges of between 50-200mm and 55-250mm, which give a fairly modest effective reach of between 300mm and 375mm on most APS-C cameras, or 320-400mm on Canon D-SLRs. Fit a full-frame telephoto zoom, with a typical zoom range of 70-300mm, to your APS-C camera and you get a more impressive effective reach of 450mm (480mm on a Canon). For some, this alone will make a bigger, more expensive lens worth the extra cost, but there are other bonuses as well. Because you’re only using the central region of a full-frame lens on an APS-C camera, you can expect better sharpness right to the corners of the frame, so the lens’s optical quality is flattered in practical use. Another advantage is that if you decide to upgrade to a full-frame camera at some point in the future, you won’t have the added expense of having to change your lens as well. Naturally, if you’re already using a full-frame camera, your choice is somewhat more limited.

FeAtures to Look For
telephoto reach
After applying an APS-C camera’s multiplication factor, the difference in reach between 50-200mm and 70-300mm lenses is even more pronounced, at around 300mm and 450mm respectively.

What to consider when choosing a telephoto zoom lens
Autofocus
Action and wildlife shooting benefit from fast autofocus performance. Canon USM, Nikon AF-S and Sigma HSM systems tend to be quicker than standard micro motors, but this isn’t always the case.

manual focus override

Full-time manual focus override avoids the need to switch between autofocus and manual focus. This enables you to tweak the focus setting, once autofocus has been achieved, before you shoot.

riDing witH StAbiliSerS

One area in which modestly priced telephoto zooms can’t compete with their pricier siblings is speed. With a typical maximum aperture of f/5.6, they’re two stops slower than a constant f/2.8 lens, so you won’t be able to get as tight a depth of field and there’s an inevitable loss of shutter speed. For example, in lighting conditions where you’d be able to shoot at 1/500 sec on an f/2.8 lens, you’d only be able to shoot at 1/125 sec with one of these telephotos. The rule of thumb is that once you take the crop factor (or focal length multiplier) into account, you need a shutter speed that’s at least the reciprocal of the focal length to avoid camera shake. To make these lenses more usable without resorting to a tripod, most of the latest models feature built-in optical stabilisation, which enables you to shoot fairly consistently at between three and four stops slower than you would normally expect without suffering the unwanted effects of camera shake. Even so, no amount of stabilisation can counteract the effects of movement on the part of the subject, so for sporting action or wildlife, there’s no option but to increase your camera’s ISO setting. Even so, some of the telephoto lenses in this class have plenty of pulling power.

Stabilisation modes

Some lenses feature additional stabilisation modes, such as a high-strength ‘active’ mode, or a dedicated panning mode (sometimes automatic), in which stabilisation is only applied in one plane.

optical stabilisation

Without particularly fast maximum apertures, optical stabilisation is a big bonus for handheld shooting at long telephoto focal lengths, especially on cameras without sensor-shift stabilisation.

Sensor size

Canon EF, Sigma DG and Tamron Di lenses are suitable for use with full-frame or APS-C cameras, whereas Canon EF-S, Nikon DX, Sigma DC and Tamron Di II are only designated for use with APS-C cameras.

watch out for… Internal focusing

w

hen a lens features internal focusing, the full range of focus adjustment is carried out by moving groups of elements inside the lens. one advantage is that the overall length of the lens remains fixed throughout the focus

range, but a bigger bonus is that the front element doesn’t rotate with focusing adjustments, making direction-specific filters much easier to use. In this group, only the nikon lenses, the olympus and the sigma 50-200mm feature internal focusing.
