What the general between the photographer and the shooter?

Yes, yes! The photographer and the shooter, as if this comparison strange did not sound.

Motivation to writing of this article was the phrase: Look - it as if shoots! - thrown by one person to the photographer.

Being fond during a set of years of the amateur photo, I did not even reflect that for a qualitative picture it is necessary to use receptions which are used by the shooter.

But years of service in the Soviet Army and classes in firing from different types of the weapon, strangely enough, left a mark and on my art of photography. The service remained in the history of thirty-year prescription, and here part of the general methods of firing acquired for years of service, I use in photography of objects to this day.

Each photographer wishes to receive the accurate photo of sufficient depth of sharpness, and each shooter wishes to receive excellent result, hitting the mark.

The photographer, having chosen an exposition, as well as the shooter, after the choice of object has to consider weather conditions. For both it is a significant factor.

One has to adjust endurance, a diaphragm and to define distance to the removed object, another has to adjust a sight for what has to define distance to object of firing. For the photographer the accuracy of depth of the planned and received sharpness will depend on the accuracy of performance of these actions. For the shooter - hit accuracy.

Also the photographer and the shooter need to provide sufficient stability of the body. For what the corresponding racks with the placed legs or other ways are used: an emphasis in nearby the standing object (a tree, a wall, a fence or other) the emphasis to the soil or a covering - in a prone position, and is a lot of other ways.

Now we approach the main part during the work with the tool - pressing descent. The photographer, as well as the shooter, has to press the trigger button smoothly. With only that difference that the shooter smoothly presses a trigger. And both need to press so that the tool (the camera or small arms) remained at rest, did not move. At both for performance of this condition the same reception of management of own breath has to be used.

It is known that when the person breathes, his body makes fluctuations in a step to breaths and exhalations. It is connected with expansion of a thorax when filling lungs air and, respectively, to the return process at an exhalation. Therefore, if during pressing the button of the camera or a trigger of small arms we breathe, then the picture, as well as a shot, will be greased .

To provide accuracy, it is necessary to execute a number of the elementary rules on management of breath. Management of breath is reduced to a stop (interruption, a zataivaniye) of breath. Here important value plays the moment at which breath interruption will be made. The photographer and the shooter will achieve the best result if they hold breath on a full exhalation and at the same time will smoothly press the treasured buttons or triggers.

From this the story, small on volume, it is visible that the photographer and the shooter, wishing to receive good results, use the general receptions: at the choice and an assessment of object, the choice of distance, the choice of position of a body, management of breath, pressing of the button of the camera or a trigger.
