click on each photo, the description will says what type of filter/lenses the professional photographer use.

can you guys explain what kind of filter/lenses are them? and how much are they??
I believe that guy is not a profrssional photographer. He uses a Nkion 5700 digital camera and Cokin warm filter.

Just curious. Why do you find his shots so appealing?
i found the forest pics very warming... very nice.... and i believe it's the cause of the warm filter right? so what it actually do? it only makes color of the picture more warming?

so basically filter revolves around the colors thats it huh?

and how much filter cost?

Hi,

It's not really that difficult.. First of all, to keep both object sharp, you will have to use a smaller aperture... It seems that he doesn't have a small enough aperture for this one as the statue of liberty at the background isn't quite sharp enough. As for the lighting, this can be done by a slow-sync flash exposure.. Just expose for the background (i.e. the statue) and the flash will take care of the foreground object (that binocular)... The flash will certainly not reach the background but will nicely light up your foreground subject... There you have it, a scene with nicely lit foreground subject that's balanced with the background! ;)

Hi,

yes for such shots, small apertures have to be used to get both the foreground and background in focus.
Even though his statue of liberty is not exactly the sharpest, but considering the distance between the 2 objects of focus, what fstop could he be using? His Coolpix 5700 smallest's size is only f8....

That is why I say it's almost impossible...
for my cam I cannot do it cause smallest is only F8.

Haizzz.......... anybody actually bother to read his tutorial??

"Next don´t use the highest or the lowest F-stop. Use a mid F-stop like 4 or 5.6."

Apparently, digital cameras have deeper DOF. His reason for using a wider aperture is to prevent the starry effects on the lights.
