Taking the picture

Once you've set up your inanimate subject and have the lighting just right, here's how to set up your camera for the shot:

• Adjust your camera's white balance for the type of light you're using (Section 3.2.2.3). Uncorrected incandescent lights produce an overly warm (reddish) cast; flash tends to produce images a bit on the cool (bluish) side.

• A tripod helps keep the camera in precise position.

• If your camera has a manual-focus mode, use it to lock the focus on the object's area that's most important to you.

• Once your camera is positioned and focused, you may find its remote control or self-timer mode convenient, so you won't have to constantly bend over during the course of a long shoot.
