I am a day late on this guys. Please still complete the work by tomorrow.
- We shared photos with open apertures (blurred backgrounds)
- We practiced portraits using longer focal lengths (50-135mm)
- We moved into using full manual controls
- Moving to manual is a big deal. You are now in full control of your camera.
- Remember that ISO is the sensitivity of your camera's sensor. If you go above 800, you will start to get a lot of 'noise'. Try to stay below 800 when possible for the 'cleanest' photos.
- When you are setting up your camera, start with the aperture, then work on the ISO, then your shutter speed. If you can't get a clean shot, you can up your ISO, but if you are totally open with your aperture and you have a slow enough shutter speed, your only option left is to up the ISO. Really anything past 1600 is pretty much unusable.
- Take photos in manual. You should not take an AUTO photos. You should struggle some with this. Bring in your favorite 3.
- Wednesday we are starting your online website portfolios! Be ready and remember, I will be letting you out 15 minutes early on Wednesday as I have an appointment in Anchorage.
