Photo Tips from Shreveport Photographer Tom Spayth “cheap and easy insurance for your camera”

So you bought a shiny new camera… Naturally your eager to get out and use it but you want to take care of it to. One thing you should consider to protect your lens is a UV filter. If you see threads on the front of your lens (not the fabric kind.. the screw something on kind) your in luck. typically you’ll find the size of filters your lens will accept written on it somewhere. It be a number with a little circle and a slash Thu it in front of it and is followed by MM (millimeter). Keep in mind you get what you pay for cheap glass can hinder picture quality, but a decent filter is a lot cheaper than a scratch on a new lens…

Wedding Reflections by Spayth Photography & Cinema in Shreveport

So I admit it… Some times I dream about Photo & Video Shoots.. Some times their past shoots.. Some times their future shoots. This morning I woke from a dream of a recent shoot.. The only problem is the photo didn’t look like it did in my dream. I had dreamed of the photo above. but what I shot looked like the photo below. Fortunately, Photoshop can make dreams come true 🙂

Shreveport based Spayth Photography & Cinema prepares for a shot in the dark.


Capturing a balance of light and shadow is a corner stone of great photography.. So what do you do when a bride wants her Love Story video and portraits shot at night so you can see the city lights in the back ground. At night the balance of light and shadow heavily favors shadow 🙂 . Simple, you give her what she wants. It’s a bit tricky, but with professional gear and experience its very possible. After all shouldn’t a bride have what she wants for her wedding? The Picture above is from some test shots we took in preparing for this shoot.

Photography tip from Spayth Photography & Cinema in Shreveport, LA

Want sharper images? Often a picture isn’t blurry because it’s out of focus. Often it’s blurry because of motion blur. That means in that fraction of a second that the shutter is open you or the subject moved. If your shooting pictures of the running of the bulls in Spain good luck getting your subject to be still. But you can take measures to hold the camera more still. One simple thing is pay attention to how you press the shutter button. Yes that little motion can cause a photo to not be tack sharp. Some folks have a tendency to roll the camera a little when they press the shutter or they push to hard. Gently and slowly press the button, better yet try and roll your finger across the button. It may feel awkward at first but practice it and you’ll notice you’ll have sharper images.
