Part one: f-stop/aperture aka depth of field
Front bottle in focus the rest out of focus -shallow depth of field
Back bottle in focus the rest out of focus- shallow depth of field
Both bottles in focus and the rest out of focus- deep depth of field
Any tips on what f-stops work best in which lighting would be helpful. Like indoor, sunlight, shade, etc.
Part two: Shutter speed aka creating motion or stopping motion
All three of these are slow shutter speeds that create motion
Faster shutter speed to stop the motion.
Part Three: ISO- still not 100% on how this really works. I understand that it gives you more light as a last resort, but than the photos become more grainy. Here is my stab at it.
Indoors- ISO 800
Any advice on the right use of ISO would be helpful too.
Part Four: A day in the life of Justin
Getting his learn on
Walking to the store
Hanging with the in-laws who were visiting. What a good listener!
Trying out my depth of field, Everything in focus except Justin. Watching the World Cup
Justin in focus and everything else out of focus
Walking through the park to our apartment
Going to the Dom in the city center
In the Dom. Lighting is a little dark. Is this where I would use a higher ISO?
Watching the USA take on England. I used a higher ISO here 800 I think.
Happy with a tie and heading home from out neighborhood joint.
A few questions- What is the best setting to use for metering? The options on my camera are Matrix, Center-weighted, and spot.
Does anyone have any tips for shooting indoors?
I would love any suggestions on any of my photos here or just photography advice in general. Lighting, exposure, composition, ISO, etc. I need help and want to get better so please don't feel like you are hurting my feelings. I know I am new at this and have a lot to learn. I will try and do this for my whole class, don't worry it is only four weeks so three more times.
Victory for this weeks class- I used manual settings all week long!!!! Thank you for everyone who was so patient with me as I learn.
