    • Induction task 2 – Night Photography Part 1, Shoot a light painted still life. Pre Production Choose an object which is of sentimental value to your or a family member. Not an X box or a photograph. It must be an object which has physical depth for the technique to work. Firstly create your homemade studio. This just needs to be a black floor and background. Black card or a sheet is fine. Place your camera upon the tripod and work on your framing. With the lights on auto focus your camera upon your object. Then turn your camera to manual focus. Try to have your studio in an area where no natural light can infiltrate To manual focus correctly, turn your camera to live mode, press the digital zoom twice and move the focus ring until a crisp focus is seen. Turn your camera to manual. Set your shutter speed between 20-30 seconds. Ensure your aperture has a small opening, A f/22 is a good opening and will give you longer to light the image. For I.S.O, keep it on 100, if your images are too dark you can always lower the F stop to F/18 for example. We want the black smooth with no noise and lowering our I.S.O will ensure it is. Just before we shoot it helps to have a small timer set on the camera to ensure the camera doesn't’t move when we click shoot. Shooting Lighting your object will require perseverance. Make sure whatever you use to light the image never points into the camera lens as it will ruin your exposure. You do not need to have your object lit for the full 30 seconds. Turn your light source on and off and try to turn it off when you move the light source from point to point. Try to combine different light sources and colours. Post Production Make sure you review any each exposure carefully and learn from any mistakes. You can also put your images into Photoshop and edit any big mistakes out, but always edit subtly and with caution.
