WEEK 23 – Portraits – Print – Entertainment Industry Photographers

Hi Class!

This week we looked at a few entertainment industry photographers. We also reviewed Anastasia’s picture (below) that she edited with the SELECTIVE ADJUST feature in Snapseed. Homework is posted at the bottom of this post.

By the way… YOUR PICTURES WERE AWESOME THIS WEEK!!!!!!! 😀

Photographers we looked at this week (I will update with the pictures from our lecture soon):

  • Cass Bird
  • Joseph Robbins
  • Annie Leibovitz

HOMEWORK:

DSLR CHALLENGE: 

1. Set your DSLR to M (Manual setting). Take 5 photos of the same object/subject from same distance and same angle.

1st picture: Properly exposed at F4 or the most OPEN (lowest number) aperture your lens is capable of.

2nd picture: Properly exposed at F5.6

3rd picture: Properly exposed at F7.1 or F8

4th picture: Properly exposed at F11

5th picture: Properly exposed at F22 (or highest number possible with your lens).

Write down your Shutter Speed, Aperture, and ISO for each image. Bring this with you to class.

EMAIL ME YOUR PICTURES after you take them AND LABEL THEM WITH THE APERTURE SETTING (ex: F4, F5.6, etc)

I suggest taking these pictures outside or next to a window with lots of natural light. You will need to adjust your shutter speed and possibly your ISO to get the light meter inside your viewfinder to stay on the middle line (correct exposure).

FOR DETAILED PICTURES about this assignment, see the previous blog post.
FULL MOON PHOTOGRAPHY HIKE — Open Field Trip:
 
— The next full moon is Saturday April 4th — the day before Easter. 
— The next full moon after that is Sunday May 3rd.
 
Please respond as to which day you would be able to come to.
 
This is an OPEN field trip — which means I will be going on a full moon to take some pictures of the moon –> and you and your parents are welcome to join me at the top of the hike (or hike with me as well if you see me on the trail).
I could not make this a regular field trip with chaperones, so your parents are responsible for your safety and supervision.
At the top of the hike, you are welcome to take pictures with my telephoto lens. I will write down the numbers of the pictures you took, and give you a CD of the pictures or create a Dropbox album so you can all get your pictures.
Let me know which date would work best for you so I can plan accordingly.
The hike would be around 7:00pm to catch the moonrise. 
 
See you Wednesday!!
