The term ‘photographic equipment’ refers to the tools which are essential to take high-quality pictures and make the photography experience easy and comfortable.
The photographic equipment includes tools such as camera, lenses, camera bags, camera straps, tripod and ball head, hoodman loupe, lens filters, diffuser and reflector, external flash units, and remote shutter release.
Firstly, it is necessary that the photographer purchases a high-quality camera. Secondly, the picture-taker has to select the right lenses by considering the type of photography he/she will take (e.g. macro, wildlife, landscapes and portraits)
Thirdly, selecting a camera bag with different compartments and pockets is a solution to carry all the equipment, as well as purchasing a camera strap is convenient if the photographer holds the tool for hours.
Furthermore, if the main purpose of the photographer is to create creative pictures, the tripod and ball head are fundamental. Additionally, Hoodman loupe is another must-have object permitting the photographer to check the picture exposure and clarity before taking the photo.
As well as this, lens filters are good tools to create warmer tones of the image, and diffuser and reflector can control the direction and amount of the light.
In addition, external flash units help to direct and regulate the amount of flashlight on the subject, and remote shutter releases permit the photographer to take pictures without any vibration.
Photographic techniques are all the methodologies that a photo-taker adopts to create a high-quality photograph. By following these methodologies, a photographer can generate new ideas and enhance his/her creativity.
The most common photographic techniques are high-speed photography, night photography, motion blur, black and white photography, monochromatic colour photography, smoke art photography, macro photography, long exposure photography, forced perspective photography, panoramic photography, and traffic light trails.
