Are you looking for some Digital Photography tips?

With all the technological support behind taking photographs today everyone with a digital camera, a phone or photographs from a traditional camera through the use of a scanner has access to turning their photographs is to art.

I have found that the resolution of the photograph taken needs to be higher the larger you want your piece of art work to be.

If the resolution of your picture is low and you want to enlarge the final picture you will end up with a grainy looking picture. The picture will look worse , the larger it gets.

It is therefore lucky that the resolution of cameras and phones are getting better all the time.

The two key things that you need in order to manage your photographs and in order to edit them to be a final work of art are

1. Good software to organise and manage your photographs 2. Good software to edit your software.

The photographs below show some of the outcomes possible.

Digital photograph horses and riders

Taking this photograph of two horses and their riders and manipulating them we can come up with a number of styles.

Digital photograph converted to charcoal style drawing

Converting the photograph to a charcoal diagram using your tool you can get a result similar to this picture. You may find that when you convert the picture initially that you have only a very faint outline. You will need to manipulate brightness and contrast in order to get to a similar result.

Digital photograph converted to cutout style

Converting to a cutout style gives a different picture.

There are a number of packages available. Most cameras, phones and scanners come with software to perform these tasks. I would suggest that you use this software until you understand what can be achieved. When you have reached the limit of this software analyse what is on the market to meet your needs.

Many of the companies who provide the end result photograph, poster, canvas, album or an acrylic picture will have their own software to download and manipulate your pictures.

get used to using the packages that you have, the more familiar you are with the software, the easier it will become to get to the end result you want. There are a number of projects available to work through with some specific digital photography tips.
