15 Inspiring Photos Shot With A Nikon D90 (And How They Were Taken)

By focusing on the cats’ eyes, and using a wide aperture of f/1.4, Chris has achieved a beautifully shallow depth of field – blurring both the background and the foreground – whilst keeping those eyes really sharp. It is often the eyes that a viewer is drawn to in a photo, so focusing on them and making sure they are sharp is usually key to a great shot. The wide f/1.4 aperture and high ISO 640 meant that there was enough light getting into the camera to achieve a shutter speed of 1/250 sec – more than enough to get this sharp photo.

What a striking portrait! The photographer has used the compositional ‘rule of thirds’ technique by positioning the child’s eyes a third of the way down, and a third of the way in from the left. This creates a nice dynamic within the image, and keeps the eyes moving from one part of the photo to another. Some great post-processing has also been applied to create this fantastic, arty portrait.

One wet dog! By using a really fast shutter speed of 1/4000 sec, the photographer managed to freeze all those water droplets flying off the dog. Many shots of animals are taken from above, which is our typical viewpoint of them – this can lead to boring, everyday photos. It’s always good to show a different perspective, as in this case, where the photographer has bent down to take a photo on eye-level with the dog – making for a much more interesting shot. Great job!

  2. Sorry for the delay in responding, Hari. Both the Canon 550D and the Nikon D90 would be fantastic choices to give your wife; I have more personal experience with Canon, but Nikon are great also; either option you choose, your wife will be a very happy photographer!
