Hmmm...vantage point? Move to the left, move to the right, zoom in, zoom out, use a low-mid-high angle. The effects will be different when using a wide angle and telephoto lens but both can be used depending on what you want to achieve. I'm sure the masters can shed a better light on this.

panong curve? depende sa curve? if may contour softlight to reveal more of its contour.

I think its better if you can attach the actual subject.

yes, filters can act as lens protection but different filters also give you different effect on your photo. anyway, u can use uv filters to protect your lens. but i think there are made na pang protect lang.

hoods can sometimes also act as protection to your lens, but primarily, it is made to prevent light glares in your photo.

and welcome to pipho! :)

well for me, a UV filter acts a front protection for my lens, if no other filter is fitted on it, I have a UV filter on all the time.  It's better to have the UV broken than the lens itself.

with regards to type of filters, you may have a UV filter which is clear, a Polarizing filter, a Neutral Density filter and a lot more.   A crappy filter in front of your lens will affect picture quality in my opinion.  also stacking filters may also affect quality.

lens hood is provided in a lens to prevent glare, this hood will somehow prevent unwanted light from entering the front of your lens, depending on the situation.  lens hoods will sometimes save your lens in case you bump your lens in the front accidentaly to something hard.  I'd rather have the lens hood break than the lens itself.

just my thoughts.

Cheers and keep on shootin'!

you can read some more about this in another thread, browse some more :)

since filters are kinda fastened in front of the lens, they are the ones that would get touched/scratched first - so we can say it protects the lens.  i haven't used any filter yet ;D but every filter would have different effects on the image, and good quality filters should enhance the image.  i personally want to have a UV filter (yung transparent lang, na parang walang silbi ;D), and the so called circular polarizer (this one i believe really helps in making bright skies bluer, and also reduces reflections - eto mga gusto ko ma-try din talaga).

it is said that lens hood also aids in protecting the lens, bago ma-bump yung lens e yung hood muna.  but the primary purpose is to block the light coming at side angles into the lens, the end effect is improved contrast.

i'm also a newbie :)  and these answers might not be 100% accurate, so let's read some more ;)  and welcome to pinoy-photography!

i have a circular polarizer on my Canon S2 IS. pansin ko parang bumababa ang shutter speed ko (when set to Av) by 2 stops. now, im planning to change the polarizer with a UV filter. Is this a good decision para di na bumaba ang shutter speed ko?

A CPL by it's nature is like polarized sunglasses for your camera so it's natural na it's gonna affect the amount of light reaching your sensor the same way shades do for your eyes. With less light hitting your sensor, the camera has to compensate either by using a larger aperture or a slower shutter.

That's why I don't leave the CPL on the lens all the time. I use it like any other filter, depending on the situation.

A UV will cut a bit of haze, but it's more of a preventative measure instead of scratching your lens. Do also remember that you don't want to mount your CPL over a UV filter.

Good Luck.

compensate, keep ur cpl and use it wen needed. use a uv or skylite filter to protect ur lens.

masters, how do you do that zooming technique wherein the other parts are warped (ala-startreck) while the subject is in focus?

Other than Adobe Photoshop, what's a simple software can I use to easily crop my photos for 3R and 4R printing?  Recently, I spent about 2 hours cropping my latest photos for printing using Microsoft Office Picture Manager.  When I got to the printers, I realized that 3R is 3.5 x 5 inches and not 3 x 5 inches, which is the default fixed aspect ratio in Picture Manager. That's about 150 photos that I have to redo!:-[

first & foremost am not a master nor an expert to answer some questions here

1. you must have a zoom lens
2. set a slow shutter speed (enough time while you zoom out from tele to wide)
3. focus on the subject (tele)
4. click on the shutter
5. quickly zoom out (wide)
