There are all kinds of photo techniques you can use when shooting photos. Here are a few from 42nd Street Photo you can consider and learn more about.
High Speed Photography – This type of photography is considered a science by some people. It is a series of photographs that may be taken at a high sampling frequency or frame rate.
Black and White Photography – All photography was originally monochrome, most of these photographs were black and white. Many photographers continue to produce some monochrome images. Many full color digital images are processed using a variety of techniques to create black and whites images.
Infrared Photography – In infrared photography, the film or image sensor used is sensitive to infrared light. Due to the arrival of digital photography, we can take infrared pictures whenever we please. This depends on how your camera sensor array reacts to the infrared and, depending on the filter you are using.
Smoke Art Photography – Smoke art photography, in its simplest definition is photography that features smoke. The smoke can be considered the subject or the medium to create something else.
Panoramic Photography – is a technique of photography, using special equipment or software that captures images with elongated fields of view. It is sometimes known as wide format photography. You can create a panorama by using any camera1, even a disposable one.
These are just a few techniques you might enjoy or maybe even see or run across when admiring photos.

It’s clear that we live in the digital age, no one can argue that, but when it comes to preserving your precious memories are you up to speed? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could record home movies and personal gatherings/events straight onto DVD and watch it? Well now you can, with the Canon DC210 Handycam DVD Camcorder.
Canon has always been known for their quality and value, so it should come as no surprise that their DVD camcorder is both of these. The first thing you’ll probably notice about the DC210 Handycam is the stylish design, both attractive and sensible. One could easily pick up the DC210 and begin shooting right away; although taking a look at the manual won’t hurt anyone.
Weighing in at 14.3 ounces (not even a full pound), this ultra-compact is light and among it’s competition, very affordable, even for tight budgets. It’s 35x optical zoom is impressive in such a small package.
The CD210 Handycam comes with all the basic features, plus a few extras that most other ultra-compacts don’t have, including various filters and multiple points of control for certain functions, like zoom. Some might find this confusing, but we think it’s simply all the more convenient to be able to accomplish some tasks in different ways. Afterall, much of the convenience of a digital camcorder depends on controls, so given more than one option to do so is a pleasant surprise for us.
All in all, if you’re a casual photographer that doesn’t want to break the bank, this camera is a great choice. For home movies, special events or just fun around the house, the Canon DC210 Handycam DVD Camcorder is a good buy.

We all know that sharing digital image captures is easy through email, blogs, and photo sharing websites such as Flickr! However, printing your images to share with family, or stick into a photo album, can prove to be a bit more difficult of a task. Either you need a good printer, or you need to spend a little extra to have them printed professionally.
If you’re one of those that likes to have a lot of pictures to pass around, you may want to think about investing in the Epson R2880. Not only does Epson have a good reputation, but their hardware is consistantly improving. The R2880 does photo printing right, which is due in large part to the 8 cartridges of UltraChrome K3 inks. In other words, the transitions between colors on most printers can change from matte to shiny in appearance, especially in blacks – but the R2880 maintains consistancy between shades.
In addition to the improvement in the ink, the particular algorithm used to translate the colors from screen to print was developed in conjunction with the Rochester Institute of Technology. This translation is known as Radiance technology, which is unique to Epson. When compared to other inkjet printers, the difference is as noticable as the bands that others will create between colors. Also, black and white prints come out astoundingly close to the appearance of traditionally developed black and white photography.
Here at 42nd Street Photo, we want you to get the most out of your digital photos, which is another reason we created this blog. To learn more about the Epson R2880, check out the official Epson website, and to learn more about us, check out 42photo.com.
