Tryptch, Memory Cards, and Indoor Tips

Tryptch Artwork

Here's a real quick and simple idea presented by Macro Art In Nature called “Tryptch”.  This is the type of stuff you see hanging in corporate offices and such.  It's pretty easy to do and it can work wonders with those photos that lack a real punch by themselves.

Memory Cards Getting Cheaper?

Peter Marshall at About:Photography posted an article titled “Quick Tip: Memory Cards“.  He mentions a pretty good deal on a certain brand of Compact Flash cards (not Sandisk) and goes on to show that it's actually a pretty good performer.  If you're in the market for a new card, take a look at this before buying.  He also mentions some good general usage and memory card handling tips.

Indoor Photography Tips

The Digital Photography School gives some advice for “How to Achieve Great Indoor Photography Tips“.  The article goes over things like apertures, shutter speeds, and most importantly — flash techniques.  The flash makes all the difference in the world when it comes to indoor photographs.  I began using the technique of bouncing the flash off the ceiling (or using an on-flash bounce) to create better lighting for the photo.  If you have a bounce flash and you're not bouncing it indoors, start doing it.  If you don't have a bounce flash, the article gives a few tips to get around this.
