The Different Kinds of Digital Photography Special Effects

The Different Kinds of Digital Photography Special Effects

Did you know that there are a lot of different kinds of digital photography special effects out there? Some of these special effects can be done on the digital cameras themselves, while others require the use of special software editing tools. Here are some of the most interesting special effects that you can look into to enhance your digital photographs nowadays.

A lot of modern digital cameras have settings for black-and-white photographs and sepia tones nowadays. However, although these settings can be used to achieve a certain effect, they won't exactly produce top quality photographs. So, if you want to use your shots to get this effect in the end, it would still be best to just take a regular colored photograph and then use a software editing tool afterwards to turn it black-and-white or sepia.

A software editing tool can also be used to get rid of unwanted objects in a digital photograph. So, if there is an awkward building or tree in the background of your photograph, then you can just wipe it out with an editing tool. The best part is that this is very easy to do, most of all if the background is mono-colored. All you have to do is use digital spray paint on the object after you sample the background color.

If your photograph's background is uneven, though, then you might have some trouble getting rid of the unwanted object. In these cases, it would be ideal to get rid of the image by pixel and since this can get quite tedious, you might want to hire a professional to do the job for you instead.

Other useful digital photography special effects include the correction of closed eyes and the removal of red eyes. Since the majority of amateur photographers tend to get red eyes in their pictures, this special effect is very common in today's day and age. Fortunately, a lot of software editing tools have red-eye reduction available, so you can just insert natural colors in place of the red and get the normal-colored eyes that you want out of it.
It is also possible to correct closed eyes with these tools, but since this is quite hard to do, you might want to hire a professional to do this job, as well. Basically, what you would have to do is crop out the person's eyes from a photograph where his eyes are open and superimpose them on the other photograph's closed ones. As easy as this might sound, it can actually be quite hard to get the perfect fit.

As you can see, software editing tools have definitely brought an entirely new approach to taking digital photographs, so even beginners can succeed at getting the perfect photograph wherever they go. Enjoy!

That is incredible the difference after photo editing (looking at the last before+after). I wonder if the classic photographers feel like digital is sort of a cheat on their art?
