Picture Problems

Post by bambi2060647 on Fri Sep 04, 2015 3:32 pm

So im new to face painting and was wondering how you all get such clear pics? all my pics come out blurry or dont show the true bright colors. Get frustrating when u do a pretty one stroke rose or flowers and picture shows it dull Sad

your cell phone or digital camera should have a focus setting.

on a phone, usually you tap the touch screen in the middle. on a digital camera, you lightly press the shutter button down halfway.  

on my cell phone, i get the corners of a white square in the middle of the view.  the corners change to green when it is in focus.  then i tap the shutter icon to take the pic.

on a digital camera, pressing the shutter button down halfway does the same thing.  the view may blur in and out until it's focused clearly.

then press the shutter button all the way down to take the photo.

as far as colors, many cell phones and point-and-shoot digital cameras don't capture colors well - especially red, orange, and blue.

use bright white light or outdoor sunlight.  don't hold the camera too close - light may reflect from the object back to the camera and wash out the color.

to get better photos, use a better slr (single lens reflex) digital  camera.

If you're using your cellphone make sure your lens is clear of finger prints... this makes a big difference a most people who don't know better obviously don't think about it.

The amount of light in the area will affect your picture - the lower the light, the more likely it is to be grainy due to a higher ISO setting if you're on AUTO. Also, you're more likely to end up with a longer shutter speed which would also make your subject more blurry if they're moving at all.

good point about the lens being clean. especially those tiny ones on cell phones.

Yup, annoys the crap out of me when people take foggy or hazy pictures because of it. It's easy to accidental touch the lens on a phone - some are even flush with the outer casing.
