We all want to make images that make people stop and say WOW, but did you know that if your images aren’t crisp they will probably just be filed away into a draw labeled meh? We certainly don’t want that, and we are sure they don’t either. Fortunately a new video has surfaced on the web that will show you five tricks which will help you make crisp images in a hurry! Join us after the break for more about what makes images crisp, and for the video too.
The guys and gals over at Shutterbug recently posted a new video from photographer Pierre T. Lambert. The video (as you have probably guessed by now) is a tutorial video that covers the issue of crispness in photos; but what in the world is a crisp image?
First of all it’s important to note that crispness and sharpness are not the same thing. A sharp image is one where there is no blur that has been caused by motion. By selecting the appropriate shutter speed you can make sharp images easily. Crispness on the other hand is not so much to do with selecting the correct settings on your camera, but it does have everything to do with how that image impacts you when you first see it; it’s the WOW factor. The feeling you get when you see an image that leaps out at you and slaps you in the face; that’s what a crisp images do, and making images like this is super easy.
Pierre’s video is an enjoyable watch. He thoroughly explains the five steps he takes all the time so that he can ensure that the work he produces is crisp. Spend the next 11 minutes watching his latest video so that you can get a better understanding about crisp images, and how you can make your pictures pop out and slap people too. It’s a lot easier then you might think. I would hazard a guess and would say that most of you are already doing most of these, so maybe you just need that one tip to help take your work over the edge. Enjoy the video.
