Today, I will introduce you to 5 methods that can effectively avoid machine shocks
The photo is blurred? Is it empty? Sometimes it is really not your kidney failure, but the camera shake. There are usually two reasons for camera shake. One is that the camera’s shutter speed is too slow, which is too slow to complete hand-held shooting; the other is that the camera shakes when the reflector of the SLR camera is raised. Today, I will introduce you to 5 methods that can effectively avoid machine shocks.
1. Ensure that the shutter speed is higher than the safe shutter
The safety shutter is actually the lowest shutter speed that guarantees that hand-held shooting will not be false. Its value is related to the focal length of the lens used. Generally speaking, the safety shutter is equal to the reciprocal of the focal length of the lens. For example, the safety shutter speed of a 50mm lens is 1/50 second. However, there are special circumstances. When we use a telephoto lens, such as 200mm, the safety shutter should be 1/200 second, but this shutter does not necessarily guarantee that it will not be shot. Because the telephoto lens has an additive effect on the jitter, the shutter The speed should be faster.
There is another factor, if you shoot the object It can move, such as animals, vehicles, people, etc., so the safe shutter does not guarantee a stable picture. What you need is to increase the shutter speed, and if necessary, increase the ISO as much as possible, sacrificing the cleanliness of the picture to ensure that no blur is taken. It’s better to be photographed than to be imaginary.
2, use a tripod and a monopod
If a safe shutter is a guarantee for handheld shooting, the role of a tripod will be more obvious. If you are shooting with a long exposure, then a tripod is an essential accessory, such as traffic, water, flowing clouds, stars, star trails, etc. The gimbal on the tripod is very important, because weighing and locking the camera rely on the gimbal, so when choosing a tripod, pay attention to whether the weight of the equipment matches the weighing of the gimbal.
Sometimes we have flexibility in shooting, For example, we can use a monopod for shooting time-lapse video material, because the monopod can not only help you to shoot steadily, but also have a better performance in mobile and portable.
3. Use your shooting environment
It is impossible for us to have a tripod around every time we shoot, so we must learn to use the surrounding environment. For example, when shooting long exposures, you can use car roofs, stones, tree trunks, trash cans, fences and other facilities to hold the camera to achieve the shooting.
If it is a handheld shooting, but the environmental conditions are fundamental It is impossible to achieve a safe shutter. At this time, you can put the backpack, coat, etc. on the ground first, and then hold the camera with both hands in the correct posture. Let your body or arms lean against objects such as walls, car doors, tree trunks, railings, etc., use these objects to offset your shaking, and don’t forget to hold your breath. In this posture, the author can achieve 1/3 second stable shooting.
4. Reflector pre-up
This article is only applicable to users of SLR cameras. Mirrorless cameras such as Mirrorless and Cards have no reflector structure, so no reference is needed. When using a SLR camera, sometimes the camera shakes due to the raising of the reflector. At this time, you can start the operation of the reflector pre-up. It is usually found in the camera’s mode or menu, and the name on the mode dial is “Mup”.
After opening this function, press it for the first time The shutter is not to take a picture, but to raise the reflector. At this time, the viewfinder will be completely dark, so everyone must complete the framing and composition in advance. Press the shutter a second time to take a picture. In this way, the reflector is lifted before taking pictures, and it will not cause camera shake.
5. Countdown shooting or shutter release
It cannot be said that there will be no camera shake with a tripod, because when you press the shutter, it may also cause vibration. In long-exposure shots, such subtle vibrations will also affect the screen. Therefore, when using a tripod, you can choose to take a countdown of 2 seconds or 10 seconds, so that the vibration caused by pressing the shutter stops before the screen starts to shoot.
If there is a shutter release, it’s even better , You can use the shutter release to complete the shutter operation, so that it will not touch the camera and will not cause camera shake. And the shutter release can also help everyone to complete long exposure, interval shooting and so on.
The above 5 methods are very practical. Some are based on knowledge, some are assisted by accessories, and some use your ingenuity to solve the problem of tremor. No matter which one, you have to use it flexibly when you shoot. You can even use two or three methods at once. In this case, don’t pay too much attention to shooting skills and composition. Only a good photo is a successful photo, otherwise it is a waste film.
Of course, those who like photography should also strengthen their physical exercises to strengthen their muscles. Then they can hold the camera more steadily when standing hand-held shooting. The test is effective, commonly known as iron hands.
