Excerpt

One of the group members made a comment to me about problem and it made sense to me that I should address the answer in the blog. With the rapid changes in the digital photography industry and the marketing techniques used by the manufactures many of... 

One more word on key words

January 24th, 2014

Fisherman’s Window Key words: In response to a question I wanted to post just one more article for those of you new to key words and how to use them. First start out by putting keywords which would lead people to you then to your specific piece of... 

One Key tip I forgot to add to the article is that I create a document of just keywords separated by comas, it drives word processors crazy, but they will get over it. I put all my primary keywords in that document such as: fotosbyfeliciano, frank f... 

How Do I Get Noticed On Faa

January 19th, 2014

I recently had a new member ask me this question and I decided that it was a great question for the blog. This member is from Connecticut and therefore the references to UConn and Yale. Here is my response to him: That is an interesting question.... 

Happy New Year

December 25th, 2013

Last blog post of 2013 and I just wanted to thank everyone for all the great images you have shared over the past few years. I have enjoyed administering “The Real Florida Group” and “The Light House Images Group”. It has been a pleasure and a grea... 

Wildlife Photography

November 27th, 2013

We all love to get the close up of wildlife, be it birds, big cats, bears, gators, or deer. However we need to remember that these animals are wild and can be dangerous to our safety. Many times we approach to get as close as we can for that incr... 

While I was developing my digital photography skills, I entered an image of an antique car into a local photo contest and the image took first place. Shortly after it was awarded, one of the judges, a master photographer, came to me with a suggestio... 

I know many of you don’t work out of a studio and don’t have expensive studio lights and remote triggering devices and when you do use a flash you use either the built in flash or an attached flash to the hot shoe on your camera. This lighting on ... 

A Quick Note About Media Cards

October 18th, 2013

A quick note about media cards The type of card is determined by the manufacturer so you don’t have to decide whether you are going to use SD or CF or whatever, that is taken care of for you by the manufacturer. However there are a few choices you ... 

Wide Angle Lens Distortion

August 28th, 2013

One of the best features of a wide angle lens can also be one on the greatest detractors of a wide angle lens and that is of course distortion. The distortion is cause by the curvature of the lens the wider the angle the more distortion. Any lens wi... 

Spots On The By...

July 30th, 2013

THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE DSLR CAMERAS WILL AT SOME POINT IN YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC CAREER SUFFER FROM THIS MALADY. Have you ever taken a picture with a pretty cobalt blue sky only to open it up on your computer to find gray spots all over the pretty blue ... 

I have been asked numerous times by students and by FAA members which is the better option when purchasing photography equipment and the answer is an emphatic, “It depends”. It depends on what equipment you are thinking of buying; it depends on yo... 

Exposure Exposure Exposure

July 22nd, 2013

Let me see have I said how important EXPOSURE might be? One little trick to ensure your scenic vistas images are properly exposed and to ensure you get detail in say the clouds in your image is to take a meter reading on the brightest cloud in the... 

Most photographers who discover the joy HDR photography right away assume they need to capture 58 images of the same scene to get a better HDR capture. Not true, as you probably already know, most digital cameras capture a range of tonality and ligh... 

High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography This is an exciting way to capture images because it brings out the complete range of tonalities in your images, it makes the colors pop and if you convert the image to black and white or sepia, the final product... 

I fully intended to post this article sooner, but my cable went down during one of the lightning storms we've been having and I just got some of it back yesterday after three trips to Comcast's store and several hours on the phone and a bunch of agg... 

If you want to know if a photographer is a professional who has been properly trained look at the way they hold their camera while capturing images. But really Frank, how can you tell that from how I hold my camera? There are several ways reall... 

Photography is all about light, reflected light, color of light, temperature of light, and intensity of light. The word photography comes from the Greek photo which means light and graph which is a numeric representation of things which are somehow ... 

TIFF and PSD File Format

June 19th, 2013

TIFF originally Tagged Image File Format was used by graphic artists, professional photographers and publishers. This is a lossless file format which is recognized and actually owned by Adobe Systems so it works well in Adobe Photoshop products. ... 

This is a question that isn’t as silly as it sounds at first glance. Many people particularly new photographers or new photographers to the digital age do not quite understand the different file formats and their uses. Their camera came set up from... 

Space The Final Frontier

June 6th, 2013

On March 4th of 2013, I posted an article titled “Shooting the Moon” in which I gave away the secret to the world of how to get detailed images of moon rather than just an elongated white blob. Since then I’ve had a student ask me why there were no ... 

As many of you already know some of the best places for capturing wild life images are our national and state parks and refuge systems. The animals at these locations are protected and in most cases in their natural habitat. Access is usually inexp... 

Is ISO Important

June 4th, 2013

I was recently asked this question and the answer is absolutely. So what is the ISO? I probably should have included this information before the post on Spectacular Sunrises and Sunsets, oh well better late than never. For the old timers who us... 

Photographs are all about light or the absence of light. The word photograph is derived from from the Greek Photo which means light and graph which is a numeric representation of values. We have all seen the histogram in our cameras which is suppos... 

I know it isn't easy to see, but the chart to the left is courtesy of my OLD, OLD, OLD business partner Wayne Denmark, (I kid a lot about his age, but I am actually older than him which makes me older than dirt). If you look at the three bars fr... 

The f/stop as we mentioned earlier allows more or less light into an image, so to speak, but more importantly, in my opinion, it is used to determine what is in focus and what is out of focus. Take a look at the image to the left and think of it... 

Get it On The Level

May 27th, 2013

My former business partner, Wayne, is an old Navy Salt, that's his mug over there to the left. If fact I think he invented the Navy, he may have even built the first dug out canoe. One of his pet peeves is an off kilter horizon. He claims to have ... 

The Mysterious F Stop

May 27th, 2013

F/stops what are they and what do they do anyway? In the next couple of posts I am going to answer these questions and a couple of others regarding “The Mysterious F/Stop”. What is the difference between an f/stop and an aperture? Well there ... 

Most new photographers who want to capture "great" sunrises or sunsets will try to work while the sun is already up in the mornings or while the sun is still up in the afternoons. Although great images can be captured at these times, I find the the ... 

"Getting it right in the camera", is a phrase we have all heard. This involves thinking of things like "The Rule of Thirds" for composition, the right angle of approach for maximum affect and all the settings for proper exposure to name a few. Of a... 

Shooting the Moon

March 4th, 2013

Shooting the moon is a secret which I enjoy sharing. For most people they look at the challenge in a straight forward approach, I am shooting at night into a dark sky and the only thing which is visible is the moon. Therefore, I must set my camera ... 

Lens Rule of Thumb

February 27th, 2013

Many photographers buy very expensive lenses and in particular ones with vibration reduction or whatever you camera brand calls it; then they are surprized when they capture a spectacular image only to get it on the computer and the image is blurry.... 

FotosByFeliciano Blog on FAA

February 24th, 2013

Spring is in the air in North Florida and that means a few things, RAIN, the bull alligators are grunting and looking for females, and the flowers are blooming at Maclay Gardens. In a few minutes we, my wife Ada, my mother-in-law Vickie and I are ...
