- We worked on some shutter speed tricks to work on how we might use slow shutter speed.
- We worked on 'Ghosting', where the subject is the only thing that is blurry.
- We also worked on keeping a moving object in focus, while the background is blurry.
- Finally, we learned about how Aperture Priority (Nikon A, Canon Av) can help control Depth of Field.
- Aperture is like the 'iris' of the camera, letting in more or less light based on the size of the hole.
- If we open that whole, we get more light, and can get a nice bokeh (fuzziness) and only one part in focus.
- However, we don't always want that, especially in landscapes.
- Use the following to get some good portraits (3.5-5.6 = as low a number as you can get)
- Use this for good landscapes (9.0+ = higher number usually = crisper across the photo)
- Take photos using your Aperture Priority setting.
- Take 5-10 good photos (that means you will take a lot more in total)
- Try making your subject closer with a lot of room in the background - like 10+ feet.
- Think of things like your faucet, something on the counter, an animal outside, family member, etc.
- Get more and more comfortable with how the Aperture setting of your camera lens.
- HAVE FUN!!!
