For personal and commercial purposes, we have to use images daily. Most of us take images from google and many times, knowingly or unknowingly, we download the copyright images and as a result, we often face warning from google, national or international organization, photographers, image sellers, and many others. We cannot, but take down our images fearing the penalties. Sometimes, we are hatred by socially and nationally, and even our business may face difficulties. Regarding this fact, we should know all about the copyright issues and the answer of what, why, and how. Besides, we should further know how to avoid copyright dispute and use images safely.

1. Understanding Copyright Law

If you want to use images without copyright dispute, you should have enough understanding about copyright law. You should know what copyright protects and what copyright does not protect. You should also know the penalties for the copyright infringement. Copyright law protects literary works, drawing, films, paintings, photographs, music and lyrics, sculptures, choreography, and many such types of intellectual properties. Trademark registration also forbids the use of certain words, symbols, marks, etc.  On the other way, if you express real fact, ideas or concepts in your own language found in other sources, it won’t be the violation of copyright law. The copy of any text file can be fall under plagiarism under state common law.

However, copyright policy may be differ in different states and countries. Its application methods and penalties also may be different. So, if you like to use images for your business, you have to know the copyright law of that state, region, or countries.

2. Don’t take any image from the internet

If possible, don’t take images from anywhere on the internet. If you can afford and you need many images, especially when you are a product marketer or owner, try to set up a product photography studio. Buy latest gears or use your smartphone to capture product photographs in your in-house photography production house. You can also employ photographer or use other’s studio for taking your product photographs. In this way, you can avoid copyright infringing.

3. Take images free from public domain

If you don’t need big amount of images, you can take the images from the public domain websites who provide images free. They don’t want any attribution in most their images, and even you can use the images for commercial purposes. But yet you have to be careful, because there are some images which you have to provide credit for, or you cannot use certain images commercially. To be ensured, click on the images and when it will be popped up, go through some exif data beside the images where you will find what to do or not to do. However, there are some links of public domain such as Pixabay, Wikimidea Commons, Unsplash, Old Book Illustration, Public Domain Vectors, SpaceX, and Foodies Feed.

4. Download from google changing ‘Usage Right’

For having safe images, one thing more you can do. You can search the certain images of your niche in google. When the images will appear, you should do the following actions-

  1. Search images in google
  2. Click on Images
  3. Click on Tools
  4. Go to Usage rights

See these actions in the attached image. After hitting on ‘Usage right’, a pop up will appear with further instruction.

How to avoid image copyright

🔹 Now, if you want to get images for using after small editing, click on ‘Labeled for reuse with modification’

🔹 If you like to use images directly without modification, click on ‘Labeled for reuse’. You can use these images directly, but it is forbidden to modify.

🔹 For using image in noncommercial purposes with modification, click on the ‘Label for noncommercial reuse with medication’. These images can be used for blog and other noncommercial activities.

🔹 You can also use images for noncommercial purposes without modification. Use these images directly in blogs. To have the images, click on ‘Label for noncommercial reuse’.

5. Be Creative

The greatest way of having copyright free images is to be creative and creating in-house materials. The topic, idea or concept may be same, but your creativity will change these images copyright and escape the copyright claim. If you use screenshot or scan images, they will not be copyright free. So, you must be creative and produce unique images for your products.

6. Don’t trust on ‘Fair Use’

‘Fair Use’ is a theory of the law of the USA that allows limited use of copyrighted materials without permission of the copyright owner. It includes not only images, but also commentary, criticism, news report, search engines, study materials, parody, etc. But still, fair use is not fair enough because of some hidden clauses inside the copyright holders’ terms & condition. It may seem easy to understand, but actually it is very complex doctrine. So, if you don’t want to be a copyright infringer, avoid the use of Fair Use materials.

7. Receive permission

If it is not possible to create original content or don’t have enough time to produce images, try to seek permission of the content author. You should take always written document while taking permission about how to use copyright content, how long it will be used, and where to use, etc. Actually, it will act as a license in any dispute in the future. It is an easy and inexpensive way. Sometimes, the owner can simply ask credit instead of any license fee. You may think where you would get the original author in case of using images. To track down the content creator, follow the trade mark or go through the provided image link and take permission. However, keep all the legal documents preserved to stay out of future copyright trouble.

8. Give Credit

Instead of asking license fee, the original image author may want appreciation. It will be very simple, easy, and inexpensive. In this case, you can simply mention the name of the brand or author. Provide the link of the original image source when you are using the images. But still, you are not safe. You have to be careful and try to take written permission. Before using the images, without conversation don’t think only giving credit is enough. The process of giving credit for using images you can follow:

🔹 Image by John Doe via [source link] (copyright-free)

🔹 Image via [source link] (copyright-free)

🔹 Via [source link] (copyright-free)

🔹 Via John Doe (Creative Commons 4.0 License)

9. Talk to lawyer

Copyright law is very simple to hear, but it is not as easy as it is heard. If you fall in the trap of this law, you may face great difficulties and even, it may stop your startup business. You must be careful knowing the pros and cons about this law. If you cannot understand the law or you are unsure using any image, you should talk about the law with a lawyer.

10. Buy images

The safest way of not to be a copyright infringer is to purchase required images from the image selling websites such as stockphotos, shutterstock, istock, Bigstock, Dreamstime, Adobe Fotolia, and more. These sites are providing high quality images for every sector. Many authors may ask dollar instead of only appreciation. In such a case, buying images is better than hiring images. Remember, don’t try to use images on these websites anyhow, because they have some software to trace out the copyright infringers.

11. Vectorize Images

Raster to Vector

If you are too smart, you can a simple trick to use high cost images with copyright infringing. You can edit highly valuable images. To use these images, they can be transformed from raster to vector images. Great images cannot be used directly because copyright law, but if you recreate these images in Illustrator and make them vector, hopefully you can use. In this case, you have to be perfectionist while converting raster to vector so that the images can be flawless. But always look out for usage instructions before you do that.

12. Manipulate Images

Whatever you do instead of creating unique images or purchasing images from seller websites, you are not hundred percent safe. If you use images by downloading from Google, in a word, you are not risk free. So, try to purchase images according to requirement or if you like to create unique images as you need, it will be better.

You cannot edit or create new images? Don’t worry! We can help you providing all types of image editing solutions or creative image manipulation services.

Promotional initiatives for products are varied in the different parts around the globe. There are lots of strict rules and restrictions in various countries based on many criteria. In the western countries, government imposes rules in case of product marketing and packaging based on tax and other legal issues. In using images of products and models there are no hard rules (if you don’t use images that encourage any racism or other humiliating issues). On the contrary, in Middle East, the authority has established rules regarding religious belief and ethics. Here you cannot use women model photos that inspire even a little bit sexuality. Before using images here, you have to halalize or make suitable photos that they allow.

However, if you maintain some criteria for Promotional Materials and Packaging in the Middle East, you can continue marketing activities for your products, such as-

  1. Middle East markets require very less skin, apart from European and American markets. It means you can use model images with short dresses in the Europe and America. There is no problem if the model exposes the maximum parts of their body, but in Middle East, it is prohibited (though flexible now). You cannot use the image that fully exposes model skin and flesh.
  2. A lot of ok parts such as hands (not arms), face, hair, neck, toes, etc. are allowed to expose, that means you can use the images where these particular body parts of the model are kept open without clothes. Actually the Muslim people believe that these parts are worthy to be opened and they don’t encourage sexuality.
  3. The semi ok parts like arms (but mostly with at least half sleeves, sleeveless arms are sometimes not ok) and some parts of the chest under the necks are also ok, if it does not give any sexual message. Middle East market is a bit tolerant about shape of the breasts showing in a tight clothe, but it should be covered. But, try not to use such image that excite sexuality. Legs (other than the thigh) are also sometimes ok in moderate Muslim countries. However, to comply and get access to the full market, you should avoid Legs.
  4. The prohibited body parts are cleavage of women model, significant amount of breast showing (but sometimes covered breasts are ok), underarms, bellybuttons and abdomen, thighs, all other parts that give sexual message, like: buttocks and more. To get into the Middle East market with your products, you must cover up the not-ok-body-parts with cloths or any other things.

Importance of Censoring your Photo for the Middle East Market

Middle East is one of the wealthiest markets in the world. Most of all oil-rich countries are in this region. Their economy is also greater than most of all countries. The markets of these countries are also vast. You will get almost all the valuable goods here. The lifestyle of the people in this area is so much expensive. The rich people get together here all-year-round from other continents. So, the markets of Middle East are very potential for the businessmen. Any product of any value can be profitable here. But the people of this area have very conservative taste and social cultures. You cannot enter in the markets with your products that have hot & sexy model photos with. That is why, you need to change or censor these images. If not, your product may be on shelves like this:

1

Ways to Halalize Photos for Middle East Market

As it is not possible to run products in the markets of Middle East having sexy images, you have to modify those images instead of ruining. There are many ways you can manipulate your existing theme and make the photo look less sexy.

  1. Full-body Clothing

If you ask how to do it, in answer we can say that there are lots of ways to dress up full body using Adobe Photoshop or any other tool. The images below we have attached are dressed up in Photoshop. In the first image, we have created different layers where to cover up and apply black fill color and what the result is before your eyes. But, in the second model image, we applied different technique and that is we take cloth from another image and add here on the model photo. To complete the job, we use various tools of Photoshop like layers, wrap tool, smudge tool, masking, etc. and get the desired result suitable for the Middle East Markets.

2

  1. Bare-body hidden with obstacles

Bare-body, semi-nude or bikini dress up is strictly prohibited in many countries of the Middle East. But, if your product packaging contains such model image, you cannot enter in these markets. Again, it is also costlier and time consuming to change those images. Here you can use the existing images by manipulating in Photoshop. You can hide the prohibited body-parts by obstacles same as like the below image. We have used here flowers and leaves to hide body and make the image worthy to be used in Middle East Markets.

3

  1. Skin hidden with full sleaves top and long jeans

Skin is also not allowed in Middle East. So, it is also subject to change to make your images suitable for the markets here. Look at the below images, we have added for example. The before image is banned for using, and the after image is suitable that we have manipulated in photoshop. We have taken the full sleeve top and long jeans image and attach to the body-parts. In the same way, you can make your image halalize adding clothes for Middle East Markets.

4

  1. Converting top and bottom

In the Middle East Markets, you cannot sell products that contain sexy images of models wearing top and short bottom clothes. So, such types of product packets are also worth to be manipulated. You can manipulate these images using extra clothes or just by filling color in Photoshop. Look at the image below we manipulated. Here we have used Photoshop Fill Color technique to convert the Top cloth to a t-shirt and thus make the photo halalize.

5

  1. Hiding Arm, Armpit & skin

If your product packagings contain model images showing arm and armpit, these images are also censored in Middle East and strictly prohibited. So, you cannot publish products having these images. You have to hide arms and armpits of these images. By using clothes or other obstacles, you can hide these portions out of the model image. In the below image, we have applied extra clothe taken from the same image.

6

  1. Full body hiding with cloths:

In some Middle East countries, you have to use full body covered images. Your products should not have any image that arises sexuality. All the private parts including skin of some other parts have to be dressed up. See the image of Nicki Manaj that we have attached here for example. The second image is manipulated by filling color and adding extra cloth in Photoshop.

7

  1. Enhancing or adding cloth

You can halalize sexy model images by enhancing or adding extra clothes in Photoshop. Using various Photoshop tools and techniques and choosing the right cloth matching with the existing cloth, hot model images can be covered and thus these images become usable in the Middle East Market. Photo editing and image enhancing is necessary to reduce cost and time consumption.

8

  1. Tweaking semi OK photos

There may have some images that need not too much editing or enhancing. These images of semi-OK-part category receives small tweaking to be worthy of using in Middle East Market. It is not so much tiresome work. Small editing can be a great solution for reducing cost. These images are allowed in some countries and for the rest of the area you have to tweak.

9

  1. Close-up portrait and Cropping by hiding objectionable content

Some image can be suitable for the Middle East Market by just cropping or resizing. Close-up portrait images are ok for here. So, you can make images look like portrait removing objectionable body parts that arise sexuality in Photoshop. It is also an easy task that can save many on-time marketing initiatives. The image below is an example where we just have applied the crop tool of Photoshop.

10

  1. Cloth manipulation

It also can be a great solution for making halal photos for Arab countries. Cloth manipulation indicates the extension of existing cloth. Look the following model photo which is manipulated. Here we have applied Photoshop techniques to copy cloth layers of the image and hide sensitive skin area by adjusting those and thus, created a suitable image for the Middle East.

11

  1. Changing original image

Some model photos may not be worthy to manipulate or you have enough images with which you can replace the existing hot image. In such cases, you need not to photoshop images. You can solve the problem by just replacing halal photo from your collection. But, if you don’t have such option, then you must take other measures.

12

  1. Hiding armpit

In most of the Middle East countries showing armpit is totally prohibited. So. You have to use model image hiding armpit. There are many ways to hide this part. You can do this adding extra cloth or by filling color in Photoshop. Look at the model photo below, we manipulated this image. We have applied Fill color in Photoshop and tried to fix the issue.

13

  1. Hiding thighs and tweaking small peeks with cloth

If you have model images having opened thighs and small peeks of the sensitive parts, you have to fix the issues. To halalize such images, you have to cover the thighs with fill color or adding extra cloth. In the following image, we have covered thighs with extra clothes and tweaked the small peek of top cloth. To fix it, we use Photoshop and its tools.

14

  1. Replace with obstacles

You can halalize model images by many ways like replacing small peek with obstacles or replacing whole model image. The two following images are manipulated in Photoshop. In one image, we hide small peek with toy and in another image, the whole model image has been replaced with toy image. By this technique, you can also edit model images for the market of Middle East.

15

16

  1. How would Monalisa have been portrayed in Middle East

The famous image Monalisa has image censor issue if it is used for Middle East markets. Monalisa’s look and cleaves showing cannot pass the censorship for Arabian countries. That’s why, if you want to use it, you have to manipulate the photo. The below image is edited. Here we have made her eyes closed and enhanced her top cloth to hide cleaves. Now, it can be used for marketing in some Middle East countries and to get passed in all Arabian countries, you may retouch Monalisa photo further.

17

In the above discussion, we have described the most possible ways of image optimization for Middle East market. It is not possible having hot model images on product packagings to pass image censorship in Arabian countries (though the condition is changing in some countries like Dubai, UAE). So, you cannot but to optimize or change your images. You can do it yourself if you have enough mastery on Photoshop.

However, if you cannot DIY, we are here to perform this job very professionally.

A detailed and sharp image is desired by everyone everywhere, but due to many reasons your best photos may get blurred and it can be fruitless. To fix such issue, Adobe Photoshop CC has introduced an intelligent mechanism that automatically reduces image blurring resulted from camera shaking. It also offers some other options that allow you to adjust advanced settings to perfect your blurred images. The Shake Reduction filter in the Filter menu is an excellent tool that can reduce blurring from image.

Types of Camera Shake Movements

Camera movements or shake can influence the pixels in a photo. There are many ways a camera can shake and can make blurry pixels. But, the good news is, Adobe Photoshop CC’s Came Shake Filter can fix shaky image that are induced by:

1. Linear motion,

2. Rotational motion,

3. Arc-shaped motion, and

4. Zigzag motion.

Let’s dive deep on how they might look. One caution though, we have used extreme examples of camera shake for you to easily understand the difference. These photos might not be fixed into their original pixel with this Photoshop CC feature. To understand the type of Camera Shake Movement, just observe how the pixels got spread or smudged.

Linear Motion Camera Shake

When the pixels of the images get spread out in a single line, it is called linear camera shake. In the below image, you can observe that the pixels are smudged in a straight line (diagonally, either up or down).

linear camera shake
Linear Motion Camera Shake Example

Rotational Motion Camera Shake

When the camera shake induced in a circle, you get Circular Camera Shake. This is obviously rare, but this also can happen. You can see smudging of pixels in a circle.

rotational motion camera shake
Rotational Motion Camera Shake Example

Arc-shaped Motion Camera Shake

When there is a bit rotational motion of the camera but do not create a full circle, you get the pixels spread into arches. This makes an arch-like smudging motion in the picture.

arche-shaped camera shake
Arch-shaped Motion Camera Shake Example

Zigzag Motion Camera Shake

If your camera shakes in both horizontal and vertical directions, you get a zigzag motion in the camera shake picture. In the photo below, you can see pixels have been smudged in both horizontal and vertical direction and creating a zigzag line.

zigzag motion camera shake
Zigzag Motion Camera Shake Example

How to fix Camera Shake Photos

Suitable Photos for camera shake reduction

Decently lit still camera photos containing low noise are best for working with camera shake reduction filter. According to Adobe, the following three types of images are suitable for shake reduction:

  • Images taken by a lens with a long focal length.
  • Images of a static scene captured with a slow shutter speed without flash
  • Blurred text in photos.

Use of Automatic Camera Shake Filter

  1. Open your subject in Adobe Photoshop CC (because only Photoshop CC has Camera shake Filter) and duplicate the image layer.

1

  1. Click on Filter You will get a dropdown menu and click on Sharpen. Select Shake Reduction from the submenu.

2

[Filter > Sharpen > Shake Reduction]

  1. While clicking on the shake reduction, your subject will get reduced camera shake automatically as it is defined by Photoshop algorithm. If you are satisfied with the result so far, then save the images. But, if you feel further retouch for sharpness, there are lot of slides that allow to do so.

3

  1. If you need, retouch further using the slides that the image shows below.

4

  1. Your photo may demand more photo retouching. So, go to Filter again and click on the Camera Raw Filter (Shift + Ctrl + A).

5

  1. A preview box will appear with a lot of retouching options which allow you further image retouching.

 

6

Use Multiple Blur Traces

Blur traces represent the shape and extent of the blur. It is used to select the region where it is blur in an image. There may have various shapes of blur which automatic camera shake reduction cannot trace because it works best on just the default region which is determined by Photoshop itself. At a time you can use multiple blur traces to sharpen multiple region. You can also resize and change focus point. You will get your used traces are listed in the Advanced panel under Shake Reduction dialog.

There are so many subjects to shoot instead of only insects or objects such as snowflake photography, underwater photography, water drop, and macro photography depth of field, etc. Working with these subjects is tricky and you have to be tactful for perfection. You must have suitable gear and proper macro photography ideas, hacks & tricks. Besides, as this type of photography is pretty much challenging, you must have sound knowledge on how to do macro photography at home or studio commercially.

Earlier we have discussed about macro photography accessories, equipment, and essentials. You can check out to know detail about photography gear and this article will help you know how capture stunning macro photos of some challenging subjects.

Snowflake macro photography

Snowflake-macro-photography

Though it seems that winter season is not perfect time for macro photography, still there is a fantastic opportunity to have stunning macro photos. All the macro subjects like insects, flowers, and tiny things remain invisible during the winter, but you can shoot wonderful images of snowflakes. Snowflake macro photography is tricky and you must be very quick, as they might melt away quite soon. You need some different accessories for the photography, which are very much needed for getting beautiful snowflake photos.

What you need for this photography are:

🔷 Black blanket / towel / mitten

Block woolen cloth is very important for collecting suitable snowflakes. It must be dark or constructing color background, since snowflakes are mainly white. A considerable amount of gap should be between snow and the background for proper light reflection. That’s why woolen clothes with fur perfect, becuase they can create insulation under snowflake.

🔷 Camera & Lens

No matter how your camera is. What you have, you can start with that. But, there is something about the lens. If you can afford, buy suitable lens or you can use your existing lens with a macro photo reversing ring. Usually, the snowflakes are around 2-5mm across, which needs powerful magnification. So, suitable lens is needed capable of magnifying 1:1 life-size that enough to shoot full frame macro photograph.

🔷 Lighting

Natural lighting is the best for perfect snowflake photo shooting. But, in a snowy day, you may feel the shortage of enough lighting necessary for this macro image. To cope with such a situation, you can keep suitable ring flash with you that we have described earlier in this content. During the use of flash light, be aware of not melting the snow. So, try to get your job done very quickly and at first try.

🔷 Snowflake

Finally, you need macro photography subject that is snowflake. So, go outside and keep woolen blanket open so that it can hold some snowflake that are falling from the sky. Usually you need one flake, but, don’t take the risk of melting or bad shape. So, hold more than one. Now, your subject is ready for getting captured. However, there is another way to get snowflakes during summer, from your refrigerator. But, we’ve tried and it’s really too risky during summer. In most cases they start to lose their aesthetic shapes very quickly, even if they do not melt. However after getting a whole bunch of them, you can start shooting at random and get some of the best ones.

How to shoot snowflake macro photos

Although macro photography is a little bit challenging and not like the average photography, it will need acid tests. Get some shots to try your luck and then perfect it. If you arrange everything perfectly, it will be easy for you.

Alright, for shooting snowflake image, go outside with mitten or blanket during snowfall. Set mitten and try to hold snowflake. Hold more than one snowflake and select the best crystal for your photography. It should be big, clear, and reflective snowflake with a lot of branches.

Once you have collected snowflakes, try to shoot images at the very first hour because there is a risk of melting. Now, set your camera and lens as close as possible to shoot macro. Usually these images are captured in board daylight, but if there is not adequate light, then use flash for creating proper lighting environment. Ok, if everything is ready, capture macro snowflake photos as much as you can, because later you have to do focus stacking. During taking macro images, it is not possible to focus each part of your tiny subject. As a result, use Adobe Photoshop (we love it for better result) for focus stacking. This technique enables you to focus all parts of the macro snowflake image. However, in this way, you will get awesome snowflake macro photographs.

Underwater macro photography

Underwater photography is not easy. Perhaps it is more tiresome that you think. A lot of things depend on you and when everything goes with you perfectly, then you can claim to be capable of capturing underwater photography. Unlike the average photography, here you need to buy thousands of dollars photography gear and diving equipment underwater, you need to know diving techniques, and the most importantly, you have to know underwater photography lighting. Besides, you must have the ability to shake frustration. Many times, you may experience what you never want, suppose you dive into water, but there are no fish or other subjects you are looking for. Again, you may feel sick or some other physical shortcoming, etc. That’s why you should have a well preparation for experience the amazing things underwater that most people never experience.

Underwater macro photography gear

A good preparation, in case of this type of photography, is needed and it includes long planning, some training as well as suitable underwater macro photography equipment. This task is pretty much hard, but it is a lot fun. Its success depends much on the right use of gear. So, let’s have a talk about gear of underwater macro photography.

🔷 Camera & Lens

You can capture underwater macro photos with a water resistant compact camera or a DSLR. What you have to check out of it is only its zooming capability which allows you to shoot closer photos. Nothing more, you need regarding camera, but you need a macro lens and appropriate flat port. You should select lens with suitable focal length, minimum focus and working distance. The macro lenses you will use for underwater macro photo should have 60mm to 100/105mm range. There are lots of brands such as Nikon, Cannon, Olympus, etc. you can take their lenses for best performances.

🔷 Strobe for Lighting

It is a significant issue. You know, good photography is all about proper lighting. Underwater macro photography is not an exception, even here it is more challenging. Only built-in camera flash is not enough and cannot create clear images. That’s why, external flash or flashgun which is also known as strobe, is crucial. It will provide you more flexibility. There are lots of options that allows to use various light effects regarding water color, depth, and clarity. For having perfect exposure, use more than one strobe and place those into different angles.

🔷 Diving equipment

Then you need necessary underwater diving equipment. There are lots of things such as gear bag, hand torch, compass, surface signaling device, GPS rescue device, some emergency tools, oxygen tank, diving knife, and more, just know the activities and facilities of everything and justify which are suitable for you and buy that are affordable. Moreover, you need proper training for underwater macro photo shooting.

How to shoot underwater macro photographs

First thing first. For underwater macro photo shooting, take preparation, make yourself ready, and dive into water. Get as close to your subject as possible, especially within 12 inches. Make ready your flash and turn on. Use external strobe or flash for minimizing backscatter and to get proper exposure, use strobe more than one, because water reduces color, contrast, and sharpness. Get low and shoot from upward angle and focus on your subject’s eyes for best composition. Then, set your camera to the highest resolution. In this case, ISO should be lowest to begin. However, now shoot your underwater macro images. If your images lack of sharpness, concentrate on shutter speed. It should be1/30th for still subject, 1/60th for slow moving subject, and 1/125th for fast moving subjects like fish. Finally, if it requires, edit your images DIY or take photography post production service from any professional bulk image editing company.

Water drop macro photography

This type of photography is really fun! Taking perfect shot of speedy water drop macro image is very challenging. It is an art of capturing close-up photos. These photos have details, though they cannot be seen with bare eyes. Actually macro photography means greater images than the subjects. Water drop macro photography is also that. Usually, water drop is seen naturally on leaves, flowers, or anywhere. It looks like a world on its own. You can also create water drop with perfect background or nice scenario reflected on the drop by yourself.

Water drop macro photography gear

To get wonderful water drop macro photos, you should some important gear such as camera, macro lens, steady platform like table, dropper or syringe, pin, etc. These gears will provide you more ease to have beautiful water drop images.

🔷 Camera & Lens

If you can afford, use costlier camera. But, if you cannot, start water drop photography with what you have- SLR, DSLR or smartphone. Only what you have to think about this photo shoot is shutter speed. Your camera must have very quick shutter speed. The shutter should be around 1/200th per second and for having enough depth of field, the aperture for macro photography should be f4-f5. Anyway, proper use of macro lens is another issue. Use macro lens so that you can focus on your subjects easily.

🔷 Tripod

It is another significant gear for taking water drop photo. If your hand is shaky (even though it is not shaky), use a suitable tripod to have clear and blur free water drop. Without a tripod, your best images may get distorted and lack of sharpness. Because, though it looks steady, we are always moving even a little bit which will ruin the effort of taking macro images.

🔷 Table

After getting a steady camera with tripod, you need steady subject. So, keep your subject on a table. You’ll get another advantage with the table and that is the perfect angle which is very important for perfect shots. Your tripod or camera and the subject should be placed on the same level.

🔷 Dropper or Syringe / Pin

Though you know how to create water drop, we like to give you some extra info about water drop creator. If you use dropper or syringe without needle, you can easily create water drop. You can also use pin for the same purpose.

How to shoot water drop macro photos

For having a stunning water drop beautiful macro photo, take a good preparation with all of the necessary accessories. Then, set up the photography equipment at studio or anywhere you like to take the photo. At the very first, place a table and keep water bucket on it. A suitable tripod should be setup then just beside and parallel with the water drop. You can take such an image in two ways- one is still droplet on a flower or leaf and the other way is to take a falling water drop in the still water.

In case of still water drop photo, create a water drop on flower or leaf using dropper or syringe. Try to use natural light or if needs, use an external flash. To increase the beauty, place another flower just behind the water drop so that it can be focused through the drop. Finally, set camera on the tripod, concentrate on ISO, aperture, and take the image.

If you want to take an image of falling water droplet, set everything like the static water droplets photography. Here you should be quicker while shooting with the pace of falling water drop. Concentrate on the right momentum and the shutter speed of your camera. For taking this type of images, the minimum camera setting is ISO 200, 85mm lens, 1/125 shutter speed, f/11 aperture, and the DSLR you like most. If your smartphone can take water droplets, you can also use the phone.

From the beginning of photography, it was a challenge to capture macro photographs. The invention of digital cameras has solved the issue. Now we can capture an image of attractive portion of the objects or living things that is not clearly visible to the bare eye. The term macro photography refers to the extreme close-up photography or capture an image on 35mm film frame that ranged from 1:10 to 1:1 size of the original subject. This technique enables you to have an image of small ant larger than the original ant. You can see the details and depth of field of the subject. To take a macro photo of a tiny subject requires suitable macro photography setup. You need to know exact macro photography hacks and tricks.

1. Macro Photography Lens

Macro Photography Lens

Actually, you don’t need to buy dedicated macro photography lens. You can shoot macro images with whatever lens you have in your collection. You have to buy just a lens reversing ring. But, if you can afford and want to buy such lens, we have some suggestions. For getting 1:1 magnification, you have to buy non-zoom lens. You may think about which one is the best. To consider, here is a list of macro lens.

⚫️ Short Macro Lenses (30-50mm)

Such a lens is for smaller sensor camera. It works best in short distance and produces greater depth of field. These lenses are cheaper that longer macros. The problem with the lenses is that they cannot work well with living flying subjects like butterfly. There are lots of brands like Sony, Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Sigma, etc. are offering these lenses.

2. Lens reversing ring

Lens reversing ring

To shoot macro photos, you have to have various lenses, that is not always correct. Even you can continue macro photography without macro lens. You can take such images using the 50 mm lens if you have. What you have to do is just to reverse your lens, just like you can reverse your binocular. The front part of the lens will go outward and the outward part will be attached to the camera body. For doing this, you should have a lens reversing macro photography ring or macro reverse mount adapter. You can use your existing lens by using this ring. By the way, there are two types of ring for reverse lens macro photography available in the market.

⚫️ Single lens reverse macro

This reverse ring macro photography is used for reversing a single lens. It has one side screw at the end of your lens like a filter. You can buy the lens from Amazon or eBay at affordable prices.

⚫️Twin lens reverse macro

It will give you advantage to attach couple of lenses with camera body. It behaves like a powerful close-up filter. This lens is also available in the market like Amazon or eBay. You will get the lens cheap.

3. Flash & Lighting

Flash & Lighting

For macro photography, the use of natural light is the best way. But, sometimes you may feel shortage of required light as your subject is little insects or a portion of big subject. If you want to reach depth of field, you need enough light. For this reason, you need a suitable macro photography flash setup. There are various types of flashes you can use, but if possible, use flash from an off-camera position. You can hold external flash and a hand-held flash offer more freedom to control direction and quality of light. Here we are sharing some flashes you can get ideas.

o   Phoenix SmartFlash RF46C Macro Ringlight

o   Olympus SRF-11 TTL Ring Flash

o   Canon Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX

3. Tripod

A suitable tripod is always necessary for any kind of photography. If your hand is too much shaky, a tripod can be a great solution. During macro photo shooting, you may face problem with low angle and awkward spot. You may need longer shutter speed. In these cases, tripod can be very effective. For pre-focusing, focus stacking, and to reach into the depth of field of a macro subject, a macro photography stand helps much to have professional macro photos. Here, we are sharing some suitable models of tripod for macro photo shooting.

o Manfrotto MT055 CX Pro 4

o Velbon VS-443D

o 3Pod PTT1H Table Top Aluminum Tripod

4. Photo shooting table

Capturing macro photos is pretty much tricky. So, as much as possible easiest ways should be taken to have better images. A shooting table for macro photography can be an awesome addition. It will help you to get closer to the subject. When you try to get a macro photo of an insect or little object, if you keep it on the table, it will be easier to focus and even, you can place camera just parallel with the subject. It will help you to capture shaky & blur free macro photo. You can create a table using wood or hardboard DIY at home.

5. Lightbox

Lightbox

If you try to take macro photos of the live subjects like a flying butterfly or such insect, you don’t need any light box, natural light is the best in this case. But, when you take macro photos at a studio or home of the objects, products or dead insects, you should use a macro photography box which can be said a portable studio. It will help to you to fell proper light on and around the subject. You can make a suitable lightbox at home or buy from market. There are various types of lightbox, just choose one suitable for macro photo shooting. A suitable lightbox should have white background color. Its front part is open and three walls, including top and bottom parts are covered.

6. Macro photography rail

Macro photography rail

It is an excellent photography gear very useful for taking macro photos. For focus tacking, a series of perfectly aligned photos are taken from a slightly different focus point and later focus stacking software blend all the focused areas from each shot and composed a perfectly focused photo from front to back. In this way, an image of a small subject is made sharp and clear to look. The main advantage of macro photography rail is that it will let you dial camera forward slowly needed for perfectly aligned photos. The rail works best for super macro photography with reversed and stacked lenses for perfect depth of field.

7. Macro photography software

Macro photography software

Macro photos demand focus stacking. At one attempt, you may not get sharp close-up images. You may get a lot of blur images, but don’t be hopeless, there is solution. A bunch of software is ready to solve your problem. Here, we want to mention some software like Adobe Photoshop, Helicon, Zerene Stacker, GIMP and many more. Using these software, you can do focus stacking by auto blending same aligned images together. Among all these tools, Adobe Photoshop is the best macro photography software for image blending or focus stacking and overall image editing services.

Though macro photography is pretty much tricky and challenging, it can be a great fun if you have suitable accessories. Anyway, suitable photography equipment always cannot produce right macro images, rather they may contain some flaws and that’s why, you need image editing services fro further enhancement, like: image retouching, focus stacking, Photoshop photo blending, and more like these.

When you think about quality logo, banner, marketing design, and some other corporate identity designs, you can’t skip vector images. For advertising purposes, you should use images of high quality, distortion free, and extended at any sizes. You should use vector images, because only vector format can serve you the purposes. Raster images cannot keep their original quality zoom or expand them for larger media, since pixels are made up of dots. So, when you zoom or expand, all you see is pixilated stuffs or dots. However, vector image formats contain vector lines, fills, & patterns which can be zoomed at the maximum sizes without losing image quality and dynamically retain their original look, as they are not limited to pixels.

 

Various Image File Format Lists
>> Different Types Of Raster Image File Formats And Their Features Explained

 

There are various types of vector formats considering many useful features and usage sectors. Some of them are perfect for graphics or 2D images, some of them are highly portable and web-friendly, and some are convenient for print industry. All the vector formats produce distortion free high quality, fully extended graphics.

PDF (Portable Document Format)

PDF is a platform-independent image file format. That’s why the file system is not affected by Operating System and you can open the file in Windows, OSX, and even Linux. It can be used for storing many raster formats (which most often is the case), but you can also use this format as a very good vector format. It can contain both raster and vector file. But, it depends on how you have created the file. If its layers can be flattened, it is a raster image in the file. But, you may find difficulty in flattening a vector file.

AI (Adobe Illustrator Artwork)

AI

Nope, AI here is not Artificial Intelligence, we are talking about Adobe Illustrator file format. AI file acts like PSD that can be reopened and edited as you want. AI file is the native image format of Adobe Illustrator. It is a modified version of the older EPS format. The tools that can read EPS can also read AI format. This file format is mostly used for creating logos, Illustrations, and print layouts. In short, this AI Formats are best from of Vector File Formats.

SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics)

SVG

Scalable vector graphics are actually high quality image formats. The image of this format can be created by various Adobe Programs including Adobe Illustrator, Flash, After Effects, and more. The image of this format is quite lightweight, scalable, and OS independent. That’s why this file format is very popular for web resources. It provides much flexibility while editing. These images can be scaled up at large sizes without a bit of distortion. And the best thing is, SVGs are supported by almost all browser now-a-days. However, SVG file size can be higher if it contains many small size contents. It is not possible to read object partly, but entire object which may slow you down.

EPS

EPS (Encapsulated PostScript)

It is now an almost becoming legacy format, as new formats are becoming more popular. However, there are still many software in the market that support EPS files. It is the most common vector image format that still has good popularity. It can be reopened, edited, and exported any time at any sizes. The best use of EPS file is for logo, graphic, and print design. It is mostly supported as an export format. Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW can read and edit EPS file, Ghostview is a reader, and Inkscape is an exporter.Read More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Encapsulated_PostScript

DXF

DXF

DXF stands for Drawing eXchange Format. It is also known as a ‘tagged data’ which is preceded by integer- ‘group code’. It is a CAD from Autodesk and used by CAD tools. All programs cannot read DXF files having splines (curves). Anyway, DFX is not so useful now because AutoCAD has become more powerful meanwhile with its supporting complex object types.

CGM

CGM (Computer Graphics Metafile)

It is a free and international standard file format for 2D vector & raster graphics and text. But, it is not supported for web pages. This file format has been succeeded by other graphic art formats. But, this format is great for product design. That’s why this file format is being still used for aviation, engineering, and many other technical tools and applications.

SWF (Small Web Format)

You might have seen flash on many sites. But, SWF is the file format that helps you to see the flash animations. This is in fact an Adobe Flash file format and it is used for multimedia, Vector graphics, and ActionScript. A SWF file format contains various interactive and functional animations or applets. They occur in a lot of programs using ActionScript. Many programs can generate SWF files.

SWF

For instance, Adobe products including Flash, Flash Builders which is an IDE, Adobe Animate, After Effects, etc. Adobe Illustrator can generate SWF files using ‘Export’ function, but it cannot open or edit those files. There are some other 3rd party tools like Multimedia Fusion 2, Captivate, SWiSH Max, etc. can produce SWF files. SWF can also contain both raster and vector images, but vector SWF files are way too smaller than the raster counterpart.

Shapefile

It is a geospatial vector data format for geographic information system (GIS) software. It can spatially elaborate vector features such as anchor points, lines or polylines, polygons, etc. As a result, this format is useful for creating vector map and presenting water wells, rivers, lakes, building, and other things. In fact, this format is a digital vector storage to store location and other information associated with location.

Read More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shapefile

WMF

WMF (Windows Metafile)

This file format is designed for Microsoft Windows. It can contain both vector graphics and bitmap components. WMF format acts almost like SVG files. It also can store a list of function calls issued by Graphics Devices Interface (GDI). WMF is the native vector format for some Microsoft Office applications like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Publishers, etc. From 2015, WMF file format is available for online reading or download as PDF.

GBR

GBR (Gerber Format)

It is an open ASCII vector format for 2D binary images. This industry-standard format is used in PCB fabrication data. The vector based format is used as a way of transferring printed electronic circuit board information to many devices. The latest version of GBR format supports polygons, ovals, circles, outlines, arches, etc. and many other shapes that are necessary for creating a circuit board. It also can represent copper layers, legend, solder mask, drill & route data, etc. and its attributes can supply meta-data about the images.

Read More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerber_format

CDR

 CDR (CorelDRAW)

CorelDraw is in fact a vector graphic editor and creator. The images created by this software get .cdr file extension. It can create two dimensional vector graphics which act same as the vector images created by other tools like Adobe Illustrator. The graphics of this format like logo, banner, poster, etc. are distortion free high quality vector images and they can be used anywhere for personal or commercial purposes. The CRD images contain all necessary quality of vector graphics including zooming capability at any sizes and others.

EVA (Extended Vector Animation)

It is a vector graphic file format. It is different from other vector image formats. It is one of the popular formats in Japan and has been produced only for the Japanese versions of Windows. It has never been created for English versions. This format is comparable with the Macromedia Flash format, nevertheless EVA file format size is less than that of Flash. Anyway, this format has been declared to discontinue from January, 2016.

HVIF (Haiku Vector Icon Format)

It is a vector storage format and created to store various icons, specifically for Haiku Operating System. The vector image of this format renders fast due to its small file size. Its native icon size is 64×64 pixels. It has three basic path types like path with commands, straight lines, and curves and for creating icons, there are four paths such as horizontal line, vertical line, line, and cubic curve. It contains two colors- plain color and gradient. HVIF consists of three sections- first one encodes styles, second one the paths, and the last one shapes. Its average icon size is of 500-700 bytes. However, the vector graphics of this format are less in size than any other vector image formats.

PGML (Precision Graphics Markup Language)

It is basically an XML based language that represents vector graphics. This format for those graphic artists who want their graphics show precisely the correct fonts, layout, color, and composite. This format was not adopted as a recommendation though it was a W3C submission as a proposal by many great companies like Adobe Systems. However, it later took part and improved upon to produce SVG.

PICT

This graphics file format was developed for original Apple Macintosh. It was a standard metafile format of Mac. It allows the interchange for images from both raster and vector formats. This format was designed to make vector graphics compact. Later, it was replaced by PDF, though there was taken a measure to retain the format.

Read More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PICT

Anyway, vector image formats are necessary to have distortion free fully scalable graphics. The images of this format can be used anywhere for commercial or personal purposes. Vector images are very useful for logo, banner, real estate ad design, industrial product design, catalog & manual design, corporate ad design, and many more.
