Photo Fun Effects For Photographers

Leisure / Photography


Conventional photography is fine for vacations, graduation ceremonies, and birthdays, but what if you want to create something different and out of the ordinary? You take the best concepts of conventional photography, and you enhance the impact of your photos with fun photo effects.

There are different ways to introduce an effect to a digital image. At the most basic level you can use preset values or “image filters”. Instagram is considered the most widely used phone and tablet application that makes use of preset values to alter the color spectrum of an image.

Newcomers, like Camera360, also provide a plethora of filters for use in everyday shooting. Using filters can greatly enhance a person’s enjoyment of everyday photography.

However, if you want to really amaze your friends and family, you have to go beyond simple image filters. Here are some photo effect ideas that are fun, to get you started:

Fun Camera Effects and More…

1.    Shooting Lightning – Have you ever wondered how photographers are able to take amazing photos of lightning? Well, the process is really quite simple. All you will need is a wide-open landscape with lightning strikes, a tripod, and your camera.

In order to capture lightning as it passes through the atmosphere, you will have to employ long exposures. Some photographers are comfortable with really long exposures (some lasting as long as five minutes).

If you are comfortable using tools such as Adobe Photoshop you can “cut” the exposures into bite-sized pieces (about 30 seconds each) and just combine all your photos into one photo that will feature all of the lightning strikes that you were able to record.

If you are not comfortable with image editing software, just make sure that your camera is as still as possible during the exposure to reduce image noise. Image noise is a fact of life, and you can’t really remove it completely. But at least with a good tripod you can keep the digital image noise down to a minimum.

2.    Blurring and Dynamic Movement – Blurring may be universally disliked, but it can actually be used as a very cool image effect! You can accomplish motion blurs by placing your camera on a tripod and reducing your shutter speed.

Most DSLR cameras have a pre-set shutter speed of 1/100 or 1/250. Try cutting down the shutter speed to just 1/50 and see what happens. Of course, you will need a good background and a moving subject to achieve motion blur straight out of the camera.

You can also try placing your camera on a tripod and rail system so that it can move along with your subject. If you’re able to do this correctly, your subject will be clear and highly detailed, while the rest of the image will be blurred by the motion of the camera. Timing is important, and don’t be afraid to make mistakes when trying out motion blurring.

When people take pictures of waterfalls and other bodies of water that feature a lot of movement, folks are usually disappointed because all they get is a still photo that doesn’t do the subject justice. If you want to create the illusion of movement in your photo, all you have to do is to focus your camera and increase the exposure time. Blurring will be created easily within 30 seconds. Enjoy your output! Go create spectacular and fun photo effects!
