How to Choose a Blog Topic

In the recent times, you will find blogs, articles, contents and other type of write ups almost everywhere in the virtual web world, right in front of your screen. You will find people writing about n number of topics and publishing them. Be it general or technical or Information Technology related or medicines or even business management, the virtual world has it all.

The combination of words, framing them in a meaningful sentence, giving out the briefs of a particular topic, is what a write-up is all about. And, along with these ingredients, it’s the author of the writer who chooses the right words, at the right time, with an engaging tone, giving it a perfect face of a diplomatic point of view on the topic.

So now, coming back to the topic of this write-up, on how to choose a blog topic, let us give you some insight and ideas as to how you can go ahead.

You should choose a topic where you know you are much confident about. It is very much important to understand that one should not publish anything with random words, just for the sake of filling in the body of the text.

If you have a vague information or knowledge about a topic, which you are being given to write about, make sure you have a good research done on the same. Along with that, collect data as much as possible related to it, and try to understand what it’s all about, and what exactly is the topic asking you to write on. For example, if a writer who’s good at medicinal topics, might or might not be able to write on topics related to Information Technology, like Java, C++, etc.

Perception, is what that, defines the situation, where you might have understood a subject in a total opposite manner. Trust me, this can land you in question about your understanding ability, and you can see your hard work go straight into the dustbin.

Hence, try to write about something that you have an idea about. And for the difficult ones, Google is always there, like a writer’s best friend, to help you, giving you a wide range of links on the related topic.

Bokeh in Photography

Bokeh means Blur. It is a photography technique that is used to blur the areas of a photograph. Basically, bokeh pictures have only one point of focus, and is used for making an image look visually pleasing. The purpose of using bokeh is to make the subject stand out from the background.

Here are a few simple and easy tips that you can use to achieve the best bokeh effect in your shots:

Fast lens: To get a nice bokeh, use a fast lens with a large aperture as it decreases the depth of field to a very small area. Lenses with f/1.4, f/1.8 or f/2.8 apertures are preferred. If you don’t have a fast lens, increase the distance between the subject and the background.

Get close to the subject: Stand close to your subject to get a blurred background. This is achieved because the camera lens focuses closely on the subject and the depth of field will be the smallest.

Long lens: The longer lens you use, the more beautiful bokeh you will get. Using a long lens like 70-200 mm, will separate the subject from the background and will leave you with a fantastic bokeh.

Use longer focal length: If you are using a zoom lens, then zoom it to the maximum focal length. Increasing the focal length of the lens decreases the depth of the field and separates the subject from the background even more.

Shutter speed: Set the shutter speed faster than 1/50 second. 1/90 or above shutter speed is ideal. If it’s too dark, increase the ISO level higher than 800.

Bokeh, the subject and the background can be used in different ways. People mostly use it as a background effect because it makes the subject more appealing and beautiful. So try this beautiful technique in your photography and get amazing results.
