Snap, snap! Nokia N8 camera school recharges your creative batteries
We gave you an in-depth look at the 12-megapixel Xenon-lit optics in our complete and utter review of the Nokia N8, and we would recommend you to check it out. But now, back to school, and that is photography school. Principal, teacher and host of the camera school is Dutch photography guru Haje Jan Kamps. What are you going to learn? First of all, the school gives you some tips on creativity and creativity without the technique is just empty words, so you will go through a variety of topics in two different sections – film and photo.
Tips and tricks for photographs cover everything from the ground up – focus settings such as depth of field, topics like party photos and even tips on how to edit and share photos. Want to take Sin City type of dramatic pictures? Lighting, product shoots, landscapes, street photography are just some of the topics, take a look at the list of topics at the source below.
Most inspiring however, we found the film section. And rightly so, it covers essential tips for storytelling backed up by inspiring N8-made footage. Ever thought about using close-ups? Maybe bringing in contrast will add some drama? The camera school is full of ideas.
What we like best about the tips provided by Nokia is that maybe for the first time the otherwise well known topics are tailored to fit the camera phone user. But let's wrap the talk up here, check out our favorites below and go out and shoot.
