Weeks 3 and 4


<ul><li> 1. 3APERTURE ANDSHUTTER</li></ul> <p> 2. WEEK 3This week we furthered our knowledge on aperture and paired it with shutter speed to create light trails. Shutter Speed: is a term used With shutter speeds, large to discuss exposure numbers equal high time, effectively the length of speeds and small time that a cameras shutter is open. numbers equal low speeds. For example, 1/15th of a second is a low speed and 1/1000th of a second is a very high speed. High shutter speeds stop action on moving objects but let in little light. Low shutter speeds will blur moving objects, but let in a lot of light. The following slide shows the example we did in class of a low shutter speed to make the moving torch, look blurred. 3. WEEK 3 4. WEEK 3We were then asked to try and take our own version of the moving torch, these are mine. 5. WEEK 3 We were then set on apractical to use aslow shutter speed tocreate blurredimagery of our friendsmoving. My favouritethat I took was of myfriend where I haveblurred her hair tomake it look a lotlonger than it actuallyis. 6. 4PROFESSIONALPHOTOGRAPHY 7. WEEK 4This week we learnt about professionalphotographers and their equipment. First we lookedat modern and contemporaryphotographers, particularly those whophotographed celebrities. Here are some of theexamples we looked at:Johnny Deppby AnnieLiebovitz 8. Mona Johannesson WEEK 4by Craig McDeanRihanna by CraigMcDeanDavid La Chapellesvision of Michael Jackson 9. WEEK 4This week, Mr Bennett also brought in a lot of hisprofessional photography equipment, he taught ustheir uses, and showed them to us. The first thinghe showed us was lighting. 10. WEEK 4We then went outside to do a lighting practical using a speed light. It is an external flash system that you can put on top of your camera for additional lighting in photos. For the practical we used the angling features on the speed light. They allow you to angle it away from your subject so you can bounce the light off another surface and onto your subject. This is me with a camera with a speed light on top. 11. WEEK 4The usage of the speed light is demonstrated here byMr Bennett. 12. WEEK 4Here are two examples that I took of a photograph with a white surface for the speed light to bounce off, and another one where the surface is gold. 13. WEEK 4At the end of the lesson, Mr Bennett showed us howbest to do a group photo. We went from this: 14. WEEK 4To this:We did this by lining everyone in height order with thetallest at the back and the shortest at the front. We thengot everyone to stand atdifferent heights so youcould see everyone inthe photo. We also madesure they were all facingthe camera. This made ita much better photowhere you can see thewhole group.</p>
