Black and white photography with Nikon

For the month of March we have been focusing on the art of black and white photography. We asked a few of our photographers to share their tips and tricks on how to take the perfect black and white shot.   Black and white is a style of photography that lets you simplify your images. It allows you to  focus more on your subject matter and lighting. There are no colour tones to worry about;  it’s a playground for shapes and light/dark tones. To create dramatic black and white images don’t neglect paying attention to your shadows  just as much as your light. The one can’t live without the other! Not to mention there is a certain classic beauty to great black and white photography, something we should all try every now & then.

Star trails with Richard De Gouveia

  Staring up at the night sky we don’t realise how quickly the stars above us are moving, while we ponder the wonders of the universe. A different way to try and make a photo of the night sky is to emphasize this movement. By finding celestial south using the Southern Cross, one can aim the camera to make beautiful, spherical star trails. This takes patience and some time and a little understanding of your camera. It is also imperative that you have a tripod, and a cable release for the camera. The cable release will allow you to open the shutter indefinitely and the tripod will ensure that your camera stays stable through your exposure. Due to the fact that the shutter is open for such a long time you will have to stop down on your aperture and ISO settings to get the correct exposure. For this shot I used an aperture of f8 and ISO of 160 as my shutter was open for 30 minutes. Make sure that you have your long exposure noise reduction on as the long exposure causes quite a lot of noise. Also make sure your battery has lots of life left in […]
