Every photographer always aims to capture sharp images, unless you are going for an artistic blur. Even if you place two photographers in the same location with the same lighting, there’s no way that they will get the same sharpness in their photos. Here are some tips that will help you ensure sharper images. You hold your camera still. This is the most basic solution that you will need to have. Digital camera with 300mm lens is heavy and tends to make your hand shake. Even the slightest shake can ruin your image. If you’re shaking while you take the picture, and you’re using a slow shutter speed it will affect your images negatively. If you have extra money to spend, then invest on camera stabilization systems like handheld camera stabilizers, tripod, or any type of camera mount. You will also need this type of photography equipment if you are standing in uneven surface or a moving vehicle or vessel. Whatever you can do to keep your camera steady will help create sharp images. Using a camera stabilizer will also relieve your hand of its duty of pressing down on the shutter release button. Less pressure on the digital camera means less movement. Another way to avoid this is to learn some breathing and camera holding techniques to achieve optimum results. The most basic is to exhale as you take the picture and hold the camera as close to your body as possible. The shutter speed of a DSLR camera usually affects the sharpness if you are holding the camera. You don’t need to worry as long as your camera is mounted to any camera stand or camera stabilizing system. Also a well-lit environment can greatly contribute to the sharpness of an image. You can get away with low light situations by increasing your ISO settings. However, the images may look a little bit grainy but a little sharp. Just choose your settings wisely. More importantly, take as many photos as you can and learn from every shot you take. Practice is also the key here. Your photos will become sharper as you develop into a better photographer.
