Project 2 Exposure Checklist



This assignment comes in 3 parts, each one covering an important aspect of camera exposure. Each part will be due the next class

Part 1 Aperture (30 points)
Explore the aperture settings on your camera. Take 6 images, creatively exploring your camera's aperture settings. You can use either aperture priority or if you are comfortable the manual setting. If your camera has limited option setting try using the cameras presets. The objective of this assignment is to become familiar with how aperture affects your images and depth of field. 1 image of a closseup subject using a small aperture (ex. f/2 to f/4)

1 image of a far subject using small aperture (ex. f/2 to f/4)
1 image of closeup subject using large aperture (ex. f/16 - f/22)
1 image of a far subject using a large aperture (f/16 - f/22)
1 image demonstrating shallow depth of field
1 image demonstrating deep depth of field


Bring these images to class Wednesday 1/30

Part 2 Shutter Speed (30 points)
This part of the assignment is meant to explore creatively shutter speed control in your camera. Set your camera to shutter priority mode, or choose from the presets that best represent shutter speed control, and take 6 images changing the shutter speed control. Explore and creatively capture the effects shutter control will create. To best understand how shutter work make notes on the scene light, the subject, and the aperture. Take as many pictures as you like, the more, the easier to edit the ones you like the best. Submit 6 images that best capture these situations:

1 image slow shutter fast moving subject. (Ex. lower then 1/8s)
1 image slow shutter slow moving subject. (Ex. lower then 1/8s)
1 image fast shutter fast moving subject. (Ex. higher then 1/250s)
1 image fast shutter slow moving subject. (Ex. higher then 1/250s)
1 image blurring to show motion.
1 image panning to show motion.

If you have camera only with presets, try using the presets capturing fast and slow moving subject to see if you can simulate some of th eshutter effects. (Ex. portrait or indoor preset for fast moving subject; or sports preset for slow moving subject.) 

Bring these images to class Monday 2/4

Part 3 Review

Take an additional 10 images, documenting your home.  Consider your most successful attempts at playing with your exposure, and replicate them here to make interesting images that show us a new look at the place you know best.  If you struggle with any of the exposure times, try putting your camera on a tripod or changing the ISO to get a more forgiving exposure time.  

Bring these images to class Monday 2/4
