Make sure you adjust your camera settings for white balance Some preset balance settings you will find are auto, tungsten, fluorescent, daylight sunny, cloudy, flash, and shade. You can test if you have these settings if you put a piece a paper and boom you should know. You use white balance to get the colors you want to pop. You can make the colorful colors bright.

portrait tips

First you need that lighting. A curtain is a great way to diffuse natural light. You can also use a reflector so that the face gets good lighting. Keep an eye on how the lighting changes to know what you are shooting. Take photos of what you want in the morning afternoon and in the night. Keep the lighting simple shoot with what you got. Shoot raw to fix what u want later. Light is the best in the middle of the day for contrast. Homemade lights make a comfortable lighting. Also fix your ISO and aperture.

1/100 f/11 ISO 1600 55mm pattern metering
1/100 f/11 ISO 1600 55mm Pattern metering
The camera metering I used was pattern metering. My composition seems strong but not sure. I say I edited my pictures decently I maybe could do better. What i would do better is taking the shots more angled and also make sure I have better lighting. Its up to the teacher if they think my pictures should be on the blog post. I dont think mine are good but other peoples are good.

What I learned about motion

With motion You need to get your settings right. It is very important to get your settings right. If you don’t get them right then the picture wont look good. You have to make sure the settings you use are going with the picture. If you want motion blur then you want to make the shutter fast. If you want a sharp picture then you have to make it with a fast shutter speed. That way it captures the moment. Make sure you have the angles right so you can have the picture you want. Choose all the possible spots you want. So for instance once you get to a game choose all possible angles that their are. Make sure to get in the middle of the action. It helps with what you want to shoot.
You can tale the risk by shooting at a wider shot. Another reason to zoom is to capture some expressions. Timing is everything in photography. If you don’t time the picture then you wont like how it looks. If you time a picture it looks really cool for instance if a car is racing and you shoot it at the right time you will get a cool picture. If someone is doing like dancing or something you time it right you can get cool expressions or some cool synchrony things. Make sure the picture is in focus so that it wont come out blurry.

Depth of field explanation

Depth of field is the zone within a photo that appears sharp and in focus. In every picture their is a point where you can focus your lens. The sharp zone will vary from photo to photo depending on different factors. Such as aperature and distance. If you adjust your camera settings and your composition, you can determine the amount of your image that turns sharp and the amount of image that turns blurry. Images that are sharp from front to back are said to have a deep depth of field. The deep depth of field are popular for landscape photography. The amount of a photo that’s sharp is a key artistic component of photography.

If your image has a shallow depth of field or a deep depth of field can make a huge difference. It implies that the picture will good bigger with good depth of field. While with shallow depth of field it can make it look smaller as well as it can make it look better. Shallow can add so much detail well if that’s what you want. If you want something big and to show everything you want good depth of field. There are three main factors to determine the depth of field. They are aperture f/stop, distance between your lens and object, and focal length of the lens. Once you put all those three factors your picture will look nice. You will make it how you want.
