1 Intro to Photography Yearbook Mrs. Townsend

2 To begin with Photography is about telling a story. Good photographers use an image to make a point without words. People remember pictures of events long after they remember the actual event or the words that were spoken

3 What event does this image portray?

4 What landmark is this?

5 What emotion is being displayed?

6 Thoughts about Yearbook Photography The essence of a yearbook is it s photography (80% is pictures). People look at the pictures before they read the text. Include EVERYONE!

7 Consider: Distance from subject Distance Amount from of light subject Amount Type of of light activity Type of activity will need. (SLR vs. point and shoot) Candid Candid photos photos are are always always better better than than posed. posed. Consider: When on assignment The further away you have to be, the better camera you Capture emotion, expression and action. Capture emotion, expression and action.

8 Basic Parts of a Camera

9 Depth-of-Field How does Depth-of-Field change the photograph?

10 Aperture and F-stop Aperture regulates the size of the opening in the lens. F-stop measures the size of the aperture or opening. The bigger the F-stop the smaller the opening. F-2 is an open stop lets in more light. F-22 is a closed stop - lets in less light.

11 F-stop Double the F-stop = 1/4 the Light Half the F-stop = Quadruple the Light

12 Depth-of-Field and F-stops Depth-of-Field = Amount in Focus Smaller F-stop = Less Depth-of-Field (less in focus) Larger F-stop = More Depth-of-Field (more in focus)

13 Depth-of-Field Is this closer to f/2 or f/22?

14 Depth-of-Field Is this closer to f/2 or f/22?

15 Camera Shutter The camera shutter controls how long light enters the camera. A fast shutter speed is 1/1000 of a second. A slow shutter speed is 1/2 of a second.

16 Shutter Speed A fast Shutter Speed can stop action. A slow Shutter Speed can blur action.

17 Stopping Action For Sports, use a fast shutter speed, like 1/500 or 1/1000 to stop action. Hummingbird wings requires a shutter speed in excess of 1/10,000 second to stop action, which is not possible for most cameras. Using an external flash can stop Hummingbird wings because flash durations are typically 1/35,000 second.

18 Shutter Speed Is this closer to 1/2 sec. or 1/1000 sec.?

19 Shutter Speed Is this closer to 1/2 sec. or 1/1000 sec.?

20 Shutter Speed Is this closer to 1/2 sec. or 1/1000 sec.?

21 Shutter Speed Is this closer to 1/2 sec. or 1/1000 sec.?

22 Exposure Exposure is the amount of Light used to take a picture. Over-Exposure = Picture is to Light Under-Exposure = Picture is to Dark

23 Exposure Exposure is controlled by the aperture and the shutter.

24 Exposure See Saw

25 Exposure and ISO ISO adjusts the cameras sensitivity to light. The higher the ISO, the less light is needed. The higher the ISO, the higher the image noise.

26 Lighting Natural Light light from the Sun (inside or outside). Ambient Light natural or artificial lighting that exists at the scene without a flash or other photographic lights. Flash - a brief high intensity artificial light used to illuminate photographs at close range.

27 Lighting: Natural Light

28 Lighting: Natural Light

29 T Y P E S O F N A T U R A L L I G H T CLEAR MIDDAY SUNSHINE - Primarily comprised of direct, downward sunlight. The hardest and most neutrally-colored lighting of any time of day, and typically is the least desirable natural light. MID-MORNING & EVENING - Mid-morning and Evening light becomes slightly warmer, and begins to cast noticeable shadows making subjects often appear much more three dimensional. SUNRISE/SUNSET (GOLDEN HOUR) - The hour just after sunrise or just before sunset provides very desirable light characterized by horizontal light that casts long shadows and gives subjects a warm glow and depth. TWILIGHT, DAWN & DUSK - The half hour before sunrise or after sunset while the sky is still light but without direct sunlight. This light produces soft, multicolored lighting, from warm and reddish to cool blue or purple, that gives a calm, peaceful mood to subjects. SHADE & OVERCAST SUNLIGHT - Typically has a cool, soft appearance, since the source of such light is spread across the entire sky, and doesn't include any direct sunlight.

30 What type of Natural Light? Direct Sun Shade

31 What type of Natural Light? Twilight Sunrise Noon

32 Morning What type of Natural Light? Dawn Sunrise

33 Ambient Light Lighting:

34 Florescent vs. Incandescent Lights Florescent Lights can add a bluish-green cast to photos. Incandescent Lights add a yellowish tinge to photos. Most digital cameras have a White-Balance which can compensate for unflattering types of light.

35 Flash Lighting

36 Flash Fill Direct sunlight can create harsh shadows, especially if you do not want your subject squinting in the sun. Using your Flash to Fill in the shadows can brighten an image.

37 Tip: Play with the flash Use the flash outdoors to correct for sun and shadows. Don t use the flash indoors let the camera try harder to find the natural light. Make sure you know the flash range of your camera Stay within the camera range to take a good shot

38 Natural, Ambient or Flash Lighting?

39 Natural, Ambient or Flash Lighting?

40 Natural, Ambient or Flash Lighting?

41 Natural, Ambient or Flash Lighting?

42 Composition: Rule of Thirds Keep the subject of interest out of the center of the picture. The Rule of Thirds is applied by aligning the subject with the intersecting points of imaginary guide lines dividing the picture into nine (9) equal boxes. One of the most important rules of composition.

43 Tip : Use the Rule of Thirds View your pictures as a grid and make sure that the subject of your picture is at one or more of the intersecting lines.

44 From Good to GREAT! Composition: Rule of Thirds

45 Now the seagull has more room to fly, giving a greater sense of action and depth. Composition: Rule of Thirds

46 Bending Rule of Thirds Rule of Thirds may be broken when other rules of composition are used to focus on the subject. Learn to use the Rule of Thirds effectively before trying to break it, then you will be doing so to get a better composition and not just for the sake of it. Once you ve mastered the Rule of Thirds, experiment with purposely breaking it to see what you discover.

Remember that you are in charge of the photo.

68

69 Sometimes, being a picture director means you have your camera ready at all times so that if you see a great shot, you have the chance to take the photo.

70 Adding extra background or foreground to your photo is great for effect.

71 Composition: Framing Framing is simply using other objects in your photograph to frame the main subject.

72 Composition: Framing Use trees or objects to provide a natural frame.

73 Composition: Framing Framing brings more depth to the picture and a better focus on what the main subject is.

74 When taking pictures of sporting events or school activities, remember to include the crowd, the participants, and the bench warmers. Everyone deserves to be remembered.

75 Tip: Move in close then get closer Macro photography is always appealing to the eye. Close-up photographs are generally more interesting. Make your subject fill the entire frame of your picture.

76 Composition: Macro Photography

80 Tip: Alter your camera angle Take vertical pictures. Shoot holding your camera at an angle. Get above and below your subject for effect. Play with wide angle and zoom options.

81 This picture is okay, but could it be better to create a mood or an emotion?

82 By altering your camera angle from horizontal to vertical, and by looking up at a specific section of a subject, you can really create an excellent composition.

83

84 Composition: Depth A good foreground can really give Depth to an image and make it POP. To take it a step further, make sure there is a foreground, mid-ground and background to your image, which will dramatically allow you to take control of the sense of Depth in your image.

85 Composition: Depth Depth can also be achieved by using all of the other composition rules: Rule of Thirds, Leading Lines, and Framing.

86 Composition: Depth A change in viewpoint can strikingly alter the Depth of a photo. Angling the camera up for a scenic shot is a fun way to experiment with converging lines to add Depth. Try getting low to the ground to include some interesting foreground to add Depth.

87 Depth with Light The right lighting can add a threedimensional feel to your photos. For scenic shots, the late afternoon sun provides both a warm glow and deepening shadows which will make your photos stand out.

88 Depth with Lenses Wide-angle lenses exaggerates Depth by making close objects appear larger while creating converging lines that make distant objects appear smaller than normal. Telephoto lenses cause images to appear more compressed, with less background, reducing the sense of Depth.

89 Angle of View Angle of View is the maximum view a camera is capable of seeing through a lens, expressed in degrees. Angle of View depends on a camera lens focal length stated in millimeters. Smaller mm = wider Angle of View (wide-angle lens) Larger mm = narrower Angle of View (telephoto lens)

90 Angle of View With a narrow Angle of View (telephoto lens), LESS of the background will fit in the image. With a wide Angle of View (wide-angle lens), MORE of the background will fit in the image.

91 Digital vs. Film Cameras Sensor: Digital cameras use a light sensitive sensor (sometimes known as a CCD), while film cameras use a light sensitive film to record the image. Cost and Feedback: Photos taken with a digital camera are kept in erasable memory, can be seen instantly, and can be discarded at no cost. Film camera require buying each roll of film, developing the negatives, and printing each negative before pictures can be seen. Storage Capacity: Digital cameras can hold hundreds and sometimes thousands of photos on a single media. A roll of film generally holds no more than 36 photos. Quality: High end digital SLR cameras have now surpassed film cameras in resolution, but film still captures a greater range of colors especially in the shadows.

92 Photo Software can: 1. Correct Brightness and Contrast 2. Correct and Enhance Color 3. Sharpen and Blur Images 4. Correct Red Eye 5. Crop Images 6. Restore and Retouch Photos

94 Career Opportunities Photojournalist (newspaper/magazine/web) Advertising/Corporate photographer Architectural/Industrial photographer Outdoor or wildlife photographer Sports photographer Location photographer Fashion photographer Forensic photographer

95 Education Requirements Four (4) years of college (B.A. degree) and/or 2+ years apprenticeship as photographer s assistant Lots of hard work!

96 Photography as a Hobby Lifetime of fulfillment as a hobby Can complement other hobbies Difference between professional and amateur is not always skill level.

97 General Camera Tips Digital is easier and faster Have a backup memory card for every event (precautionary) 4-6 megapixels is all you really need Point and shoot vs. SLR Have a good file management system Back-up photos regularly Avoid cropping as much as possible

98 A few other thoughts about photography Be spontaneous Take pictures of the unusual Use your photographs to show memories, not just to document events Be creative Think before you shoot Hold the camera steady (use a tripod when available)
