Assignment 2: The Right Settings
Check with Mr. Restad to make sure your camera is taking photos in the right format: jpg
Select 4 places on school grounds (inside or outside) that have very different light situations (e.g. gym, library, front steps).
Play around with distance, angle, and perspective as well to try and create a unique photo of the different places. Remember, your knees should be dirty by the end of this! Climb on benches, kneel on floors, find new perspectives.
Play around with the settings until you have take a picture with what you believe looks good.
Record those settings (ISO, Aperture, Shutter speed)
Upload your 4 photos (each one of a different place and setting) to the Google Classroom Assignment along with a document describing the settings you used and why.
Assignment 4: Artistic Composition Study these three photo composition terms:
Depth of Field - The zone of acceptable sharpness within a photo that will appear in focus
Rule of Thirds- The basic principle behind the rule of thirds is to imagine breaking an image down into thirds (both horizontally and vertically) so that you have 9 parts.
Leading Lines- Leading lines are lines within an image that leads the eye to another point in the image, or occasionally, out of the image.
Take the following pictures around Senior High: These last pictures must be taken in RAW format and final pictures must be edited and exported as jpegs. Then see Mr. Restad to change your camera to the correct format.
A portrait of an adult in their place of work that uses the Rule of Thirds framing technique
A picture of someone or something in motion
A close up of an object (w/ depth of field)
A picture showing repetition or leading lines
A picture that could be used for an article with the title "Bronc Spirit"
