Even if you study the basics of photography and are quite confident of clicking good pictures in any condition, there are bound to be situations when certain flaws creep into your photos.
These could be circumstantial, due to faulty equipment or because of erroneous handling on your part. Here are some common problems which photographers face, and quick ways to fix them:
How many photos of yours have been ruined due to red-eye – that eerie red dots in human’s eyes which happens because the camera flash is too close to the subject? You can fix it either by using the camera flash at an angle, or while editing it in which there is an option “remove red eye”.
A blurry photo is where objects in the frame seem soft and blurry. The reason could be that either the object is moving really fast, or you have not focused the camera lens on it correctly. To fix this, use a faster shutter speed for moving objects, or use a flash. Also you must focus correctly. Use Auto focus for help.
It is similar to blur, but this time, instigated by the camera and / or the photographer. The reason could be incorrect posture or bad camera handling technique. To fix this, use a tripod and use faster shutter speeds.
These are the dark edges in a photo which occur when light that is focused by the lens starts falling-off towards the edges. All lenses have some degree of vignetting. The expensive ones just have less.
It is the white diffused area next to a light source, or circles of light radiating out from a light source that’s directly in the photograph’s frame. To fix this, use a lens hood to keep stray light out, or get a lens with better coatings. Also, avoid shooting directly into the light.
