JUMP shot

Yours truly is not a PRO when it comes to taking pictures but I'm trying hard to be one. Hahaha!  :) Using a digital camera makes it even more difficult. I had to focus and TIMING is of the essence.  Hey guys!  Can you give me some of your photography secrets.  Now, I wish to have a DSLR camera.  Actually, I have no idea about this until I sought the services of google.


According to WIKIPEDIA:

"Digital single-lens reflex cameras (also named digital SLR or DSLR) are digital cameras combining the parts of a single-lens reflex camera (SLR) and a digital camera back, replacing the photographic film. Features like live preview, HD video recording with contrast detection autofocus or ergonomic integration like dedicated film speed (ISO) buttons took further advantage of the digital image sensor. Although the term DSLR often refers to cameras that resemble 35 mm format cameras, some medium format cameras are also DSLRs.

Currently DSLRs are widely used by consumers and professional still photographers. Well established DSLRs currently offer a larger variety of dedicated lenses and other photography equipment, often using a larger image sensor format, often providing a higher dynamic range and signal to noise ratio. By contrast compact digital cameras and bridge cameras usually have smaller image sensors, which provide a larger depth of field. The newer mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC) are beginning to compete with DSLRs while offering a more compact camera body."

  1. just make sure to have a fast shutter speed (to freeze the action) and try continuous shooting, afterwards, select which photo is best for your jump shot... :D

  2. Try to take the photo from a lower angle so the jump would look higher.

    1. I could not take the shot much lower... my model is quite small. I should have taken it lying down. JOKE!

    1. Good that Kiko was patient enough to sympathize with her Mama's ambition. Maybe, we'll go somewhere else... much safer ground. Nsa tabi kasi kami ng Manila Bay eh.

  6. I started using Digital cameras since 2008. By 2011, I switched to Canon DSLR because naabot ko na yung limitations ng digicam. But yeah, practice makes perfect pa rin. :)

    1. Naku! My husband is not even an amateur... but he's the only one who can secure a nice DSLR for me. I need to make SIPSIP!!

  11. If compact ang gamit mo, just set it to sports or kids mode. Shoot from a lower angle. If you can go down to the ground the better. It will make the jump look higher if you shoot from a very low angle. For timing, since compacts have "lag" time press the shutter button earlier than you use to. Hope this helps.

  14. Oh!
    I had the same Issue before in shooting jump shots.
    But yeah I learned by practice.
    First, step is your position especially of the jumper is up front.
    You have to crouch or shoot below eye level.
    second, your camera even a digicam would have a 2nd release.
    the first release is more of focus.
    do a half press first when your subject is ready to jump,
    feel that your camera has something to focus,
    then a full press when they're at the full height of the jump.
    Don't do multiple or fast release in one shot, because you are wasting frames.

    Also let your subject count on their own instead of you counting for them on when to jump. This allows you to focus on the camera and the moment.

    :)

  18. I always have fun photographing my kids on a jump shot! I tend to use a faster lens, the 50mm for example to get a good and clear shot. :) Keep it up!
