“Photography is about capturing souls, not smiles”
My apologies for being a day late! Thank you for being patient with me. Some things came up at work putting me behind schedule. I hope you’ve had a great week. It was nice seeing some of you on Thursday, and I look forward to seeing the rest of you this coming Thursday!
Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO
This week I want you guys to watch these two videos on aperture, shutter speed and ISO. Understanding these three settings can be very difficult, believe me. I was in your boat once too!
Photography is referred to as “painting with light”. Photographing shadows can be a huge challenge. The reason why, is because you have two light levels; the normal light and the shadow. Both require different exposures. This can be a challenge. Don’t trust your light meter. Your light meter may tell you to over-expose the photograph instead of allowing the shadow to remain dark. Look at the picture after you take it and decide if you need to change your settings.
WEEK 9 ASSIGNMENT #1 – Shadows
This week I want you to take your camera with you everywhere and photograph shadows! I asked you to do this in the past, but… this week (in my attempt to encourage you) I am going to do this assignment with you! At the end of the week, I will submit my images as one of your peers for you to critique! Don’t take a photo just for the sake of photographing a shadow. Think about composition, the elements of art or the message behind the image.
I am looking for creativity with this assignment.
