A new series of articles on Corvette museum photography from the automotive industry magazine Corvettes Magazine has revealed some of the most essential tips for photography in your Corvette Museum.
From the smallest detail, to the largest and most important, the tips and tricks listed here will help you get the most out of your Corvette museum photos.
For example, this article from the March 2017 issue of Corvets Magazine covers how to take great photos at a variety of angles.
In the article, photographer David Pazio writes that “It’s always better to be in a wide-angle shot than a narrow-angle.
In a wide shot, the subject will be in the foreground, but the camera is in the background, which will also make the photo appear more natural.”
Another article on the same topic from the September 2016 issue of the magazine offers tips on how to use the rangefinder in your museum photos, as well as how to shoot wide shots in a Corvette museum.
Pazia writes: “When shooting a wide angle, you’ll want to use a manual focus to get a clear picture, and when shooting a narrow angle, it’s a good idea to use an autofocus, so you don’t have to think about it at all.
You can also try using a shutter speed that’s slower than the lens aperture to get that nice, clean, close-up of the detail.”
Also, don’t forget that you can always go with a wide and a narrow exposure if you have a lot of background light, so try shooting a bit of both at the same time.
“Another great article from a recent issue of Corvette Magazine includes tips on using digital filters to achieve a more professional look in your photos, including tips for applying a variety on the filters you choose.
