在卫塞节睡了个昏天暗地,原因如常。

刚刚拜读了“报人程益中” (备用链接),如果不再抱有希望,那么剧变的痛苦以及流血会升级。中国人对自己人从来都不会手软的。

槟城的旅程已确认下来,也属于KL哥哥的“每月旅行”的一部分,可以戏称为“每月都有那么几天。。。不在新加坡”活动。希望能够承担更多的责任以及义务,不至于碌碌无为。TLT姑姑的车针线已经开动了好几个星期了,也可能会到另外一个省,为了更好的明天。朋友间的华山论剑聚会又将开始,当初在面对面约定时,没有意识到是这个名称,惭愧。由于不是个主动的人,汪洋中的小舟将飘向何处不单单是风的方向。

欢迎进入第二星期。希望你已经利用第一个星期学到的技巧为自己拍摄到好几张不同凡响的照片了。

我知道你要说很讨厌三脚架,它们太笨重了。

但是,明显地,它们可以帮你拍摄到一系列特殊的相片。

带着三脚架到处跑显得很麻烦,不过从两个方面来说可以帮到你。

首先,布置好你的三脚架会大大减缓你的拍摄速度。也就是说,你会更加关注其他摄影因素,比如构图,光线。考虑到更多的摄影因素,也就能够拍摄到更好的照片。

另外一个优势就是使得你的相机更加稳固,能够拍出锐利的照片,特别是在光线不好的环境下。

另外一个三脚架的备用版本是单脚架。顾名思义,它只有一只脚,没有三脚架那么稳固,但将它已某些面作为支撑的话会比你的手来的稳定。

如果你经常登山的话,行走在陡坡时三脚架也是一个很好的支撑物,松开其中一只脚即可。

三脚架选用建议:如果你用的相机很轻,可以考虑购买一个轻量级的三脚架。体积小,重量轻,很容易放进背包或相机包中。

不是建议的建议:其实你也不用用到三脚架。周围任何水平面都可以当作是三脚架 — 椅子的扶手,栏杆,石头等等。但要小心不要损坏你的相机,实际情况下相机很容易从这些表面滑落。

Welcome to your second week of tips. I hope that you have implemented some of the tips in the first week of secrets and have already created some stunning photographs.

Digital Photography Secret 07 — Use A Tripod
by David Peterson

I know what you’re going to say! You hate tripods! They’re so bulky to take with you.

But trust me – tripods can make a seriously big difference to your photography.

Yes, tripods can be a hassle to carry around with you but they help you take great shots in two ways.

First, the time you take to get out the tripod, set it up and position the camera on it will slow your picture taking down. This means you’ll become more aware of other elements like composition of the image, and lighting. The more focussed you are to external conditions, the more likely you will be to take a great shot.

The added advantage is your camera is more steady allowing you to take razor-sharp images – particularly in low light situations.

An alternative to the tripod is a ‘mono pod’. These only have one leg and don’t have the stability of a tripod, but they have a greater stability than just your hands – particularly if you lean them against something.

If you do a lot of mountain walking, there are also extendable ‘walking canes’ (like a ski pole) that are great for helping you walk up steep hills. The top unscrews to reveal a tripod mount underneath turning it into a mono pod.

Tripod Tip : If you have a lightweight camera, you might consider purchasing a ultra lightweight tripod. These are small, don’t weigh much and easily fit in a backpack or camera bag.

Extra Tip : You don’t need to purchase a tripod either! Any horizontal surface around can make a tripod – arms of chairs, railings, rocks, anything! Be very careful not to damage your camera, though as cameras have a tendency to slip and break when perched on chairs, rocks etc.
