Week 5

Week 5 -Intro to Digital Photography

Week 5 Photo Workshop.

This week was devoted to our workshop.  We put into practice the techniques we learned in the last 4 weeks.

Week 5 Review

Using various objects brought into class, we took pictures:

  • Composition –Rule of Thirds
  • Shutter speed -using fast and slow speeds
  • Depth of field –Shallow and deep using various aperture settings
  • Lighting –using the camera’s flash, spot lights and available light

We talked about what worked, what was difficult and what didn’t work well.

This Blog has many resources for you:

  • Blog Posts:  Has many of the concepts we discuss in class in greater detail as well as many other topics.
  • Ron Resources: Has several web links I mentioned in class that are useful and educational.
  • Ron’s Recommendations:  My recommendations for cameras and accessories.

Please explore my Blog; I created it for you -my students.
