Image Stabilization

Major techniques Involved

  • Optical. It is defined as a method used in a still or a video camera for stabilizing the recorded image by changing the optical path to the sensor. The fact that the optical stabilization systems stabilize the image projected on the sensor before the sensor transforms the same into digital information forms one of their basic elements.
  • Digital. Real-time digital image technique is mainly used for video cameras. This popular technique helps in shifting the electronic image from frame to frame of video, enough to neutralize the motion. It employs the pixels for providing a buffer for the motion. This technique minimizes disturbing vibrations from videos and enhances still image quality by enabling a person to increase the exposure time without affecting the image quality. This technique hardly influences the noise level of the image.
  • Stabilization filters. Most of the video non-linear editing systems make use of stabilization filters capable of correcting a non-stabilized image by keeping a track of the movement of pixels in the image and correcting the image by moving the frame.

If it is a river or mountain in the background then place the person in the right or left bottom two squares of the composition while the river or mountain is placed on the side in the background.

Golden Triangle

Great Tulip Photos

Consider Your Point of View

One of the characteristics that makes an image strong is when it presents a scene in a way that we don’t normally get to see it. As you walk through life each day, you see EVERYTHING, for the most part, at eye level. As beautiful as a Tulip may be, if you photograph it from your normal standing position, it will look like every other Tulip you have seen over the years. Beautiful?… yes, Unique or interesting?… probably not so much.

Look to present Tulips in a way they are not usually seen. When was the last time you got down on your belly on a nice day and gazed upward at the flowers? Maybe never, right? By gaining a different perspective than what you are used to seeing, the image now possesses the unique and interesting factor that makes it visually appealing.
