Tips for Capturing Your Best Moments with Canon iNSPiC
Photography is alluring, inspiring, and allows us to capture some of the most important moments in our lives. That said, good photography doesn’t always require complicated techniques or skills.
Whether you’re an aspiring young explorer on the move and making new discoveries, or a savvy mother ready to document every milestone of your child’s journey, here are some simple tips to improve your photography skills with your new Canon iNSPiC instant camera printer that will definitely come in helpful along the way.
1. Camera Angles are Important
Sometimes, a good photograph might allow your audience to see your subjects “eye-to-eye”, that’s why it’s important for you to think about the composition of your photo from the get-go. Instead of taking a photo from a high or low angle, think about going down to eye level. This not only draws the audience into the photo, but also adds a touch of intimacy to your masterpiece.
Considering composition also means thinking about the distance between your subjects and the instant camera printer. That means even if you’re trying to accommodate stunning scenery into your shot, keep your subject in focus by keeping at a reasonable distance. Taking a selfie? Prevent a selfie fail by positioning your Canon iNSPiC Instant Camera Printer at arm’s length. Plus, it’s so much easier with the bluetooth-enabled remote shutter shooting function on the Canon Mini Print app (Canon iNSPiC [S] only). Your stunning selfie is only a button away!
2. Inspiration Can Happen At Any Time
Whether you’re frolicking through an open field directly under the afternoon sun, or taking an evening stroll along the streets, you want to be prepared when a special moment comes to you. Uneven lighting can sometimes manifest as dark shadows cast over faces, or images turning into silhouettes. Needless to say, extensive lighting equipment will not always be readily available for these situations.
The Canon iNSPiC [S]’s Flash and Fill lighting has you covered, regardless of the time of day. Fill lighting is useful for illuminating your subjects’ faces at close range, whereas Flash lighting allows you to throw light at further distances. Here's a fun tip - your photos will turn out best when you use the fill light against a vibrant background that is sufficiently lit. This little powerhouse even comes with auto ISO and auto White Balance, making your photographic experience seamless and absolutely fuss-free.
3. Edit Your Photos to Suit Your Mood
Most of the time, photography is not just about pressing the shutter and calling it a day. Now that you’ve had some practice with lighting and composition, you might want to consider a thing or two about editing. This allows you to add some final touches to your photos and turn them into stunning creations.
Luckily, you don’t need elaborate photo-editing tools to achieve quality edits. Lay on some quirky stickers and fun captions, or colour-grade your photographs to perfection with colour balancing and saturation tuning functions. Used with the Canon iNSPiC [S], the Canon Mini Print App comes power-packed with an array of filters and editing tools that allow you to turn your favourite images into unique personalised prints.
4. Sharing is Caring
One of the most unique aspects of photography is the ability to relive special moments and share them with your loved ones. With the Canon iNSPiC [C] and [S], it’s incredibly easy to print or even reprint copies of these moments instantly with the ‘Reprint’ function so that everyone gets to keep a copy. Don’t worry, you’ll never run out of ink with the Canon iNSPiC’s ZINK or Zero Ink™ Technology, which enables colour-printing with heat technology. You won’t be fumbling about with empty print cartridges anymore.
The Canon iNSPiC [C] and [S] also print 2x2” images, giving you room to doodle and add personalised notes. What’s more, when you print your photos on the Canon ZINK™ sticker-backed paper, all you have to do is peel them off and stick them on anywhere you fancy. Now you can experience the joy of sharing your photography everywhere you go.
5. Be Prepared for Candid Moments
Finally, remember that the best moments are often the most unexpected ones. If good content makes for an intriguing photograph, you’ll need an instant camera printer that you can take everywhere you go for these candid shots. Who knows if you’re lucky enough to witness a wedding proposal or bump into your favourite celebrity on the streets? The Canon iNSPiC series is small and lightweight enough to fit in your pocket, so you never miss a moment.
Of course, as with every other form of art, honing your craft takes practice. Fortunately, with the Canon iNSPiC, it’s so easy to whip it out for a quick shot, as and when inspiration calls. Just remember that the more you snap, the better your photos get.
Photography is as much about sincerity, opportunity, emotion and camaraderie, as it is about practice and technique. In fact, exceptional photography doesn’t have to be complicated to be special, sometimes all you need are the essentials and a good eye for honest content. With these tips, you’ll find that the Canon iNSPiC series is as uncomplicated as it gets, with built-in tools and accessories to compliment your creative endeavours.
