Photography I&II


When I joined photo I, I myself expected an "easy A." That it would be just a class that you just take pictures in and get graded on them. After Mrs. Morell's speech about "this class is to be taken seriously or you dont belong here" I have this though to leave, but I didn't want to leave because I love photography and taking pictures, I wanted to learn and get some experiance with photography to use with my pictures when I get my own cam. So I will show you what I have learned.....

Photography I


Aperture:

Aperture was our first assignment, to sum it up short the lower the aperture (F-Stop) the more blur the background will have, the higher the aperture, the more clear the background will be.

Shutter Speed:

Shutter Speed is how fast the shutter (how long the camera lens is exposed to light.) is used. A fast shutter speed can capture a fast moving object like a bird about to take flight, while a slow shutter can capture things like landscape and can also be used for panning. You should also never hand hold below a 1/60 (1/50 no hold.)

This is a fast shutter

Slow









Mergers:

Mergers are things or objects that are in the way of a picture or things that are "merging" inside a person or thing.

ROT:

The ROT (Rule of Thirds) is a skill used to position a photo and try not to center it. Its based like a tic-tac-toe board.

As you can see, none of them are centered.

FOV:

Or Field of View, is also called depth of field. Its how much of the object + or - the background there is. (Only have one example)

POV:

Or Point of View, is taking pictures of different peoples "point of view" of a subject like water or tech.

ISO:

ISO is these two things, the "noise" of the picture and it also controls the light a higher ISO means more noise and that also means the place your taking pictures in is really dark, The lower the ISO the less noise your picture will have and that also means the place your in is nice and bright. ISO rates between 100-1600.

Color Project:

This project was a simple one to take a picture of the color our class picks. (I think ours was yellow.)

Portrait:

Portrait was a tough one for me, for the one main reason, finding someone willing to be in the picture.

Landscape:

Landscape has to be the second best project I did even though I did "ok." This project taught me more use of the shutter speed.

Fashion Photography:

Fashion Photography was the number one project I enjoyed. Ive learned so much from this project about how to shoot "things in a angle" or people, this inspired me so much that I did a project kinda like this in photo II.

Photo II


So after photo I, I wanted to take the next step into photography and take Photo II. Photo II is nothing like Photo I, it is much more advanced and fast paced, meaning you have a lot more to do, but you do get lots of time to do so. Photo II was really challenging but also fun, I have learned ALOT from this class and I have enjoyed it Mrs. Morell has been really fun to have as a teacher though there has been a lot of times I messed up and she "reacts." But Im sure if she was not as "evil/assertive" as she is now, I probaly would not have got my work done at all and I am thankful for Mrs. Morell. But back to Photo II I will show you my projects.....




Project 1 Shoe Photography:

So my first project was Shoe Photography, I picked this because Fashion in photo I was fun so I wanted to try it on Shoes.

(The last two pictures were my weakest photos and would be better without them....)

Project 2 Portrait Retake:

Portrait was my secound project, again I did portrait because I enjoyed it from photo one and wanted to do it again, but it had to be better than photo I, hence the part "retake." (was going to do Dominican Culture of my family, but it would take to much time.)

Project 3 Sports Black and White Photography

My third project was sports black and white photography, I really liked this project because I love Black and White so I wanted to see if photoshop Black and White makes a difference than the Camera taking it in Black and White.

Project 4 Film Nature Photography

This was my last project, this project would have to be in film, so a digtal camera was not offered. So I used a Pentax Camera and it was hard. Not being able to use the view picture assit is hard because you need to really focus and not mess up your picture and a film shot. At first film was hard and scary, but at the end film was really fun, if this was not the last project I would take film again.
