  • Miami may have won the ACC basketball tournament, but a different kind of championship was awarded in the Hunt Library auditorium last week. Kimberly Dufresne was awarded the first place prize in the NCSU Libraries’ My #HuntLibraryInstagram photo competition after a fierce competition that lasted two months and had 1,400 entries. The quantity and quality of the photographs made the final selection difficult, but in the end, Kimberly’s photograph was the clear winner. It features the unique visualization technology in the building and symbolically illustrates how the James B. Hunt Jr. Library allows our students to reach new heights. Kimberly, a junior graphic design major, received an iPad Mini at an awards ceremony during halftime of NC State’s first-round game during the ACC tournament. - See more at: http://news.lib.ncsu.edu/tag/instagram/#sthash.vKOhq62F.dpufAlthough the contest is over, we are now beginning the process of ingesting the stunning photographs from the My #HuntLibrary contest into the permanent University archives. Our goal is to add all of the Instagram photos that were tagged #HuntLibrary into our digital collections so that they become a permanent part of the story of the James B. Hunt Jr. Library. The My #HuntLibrary website will also continue to live on, so don’t forget to keep tagging your beautiful shots of #HuntLibrary! - See more at: http://news.lib.ncsu.edu/tag/instagram/#sthash.vKOhq62F.dpuf

  • CAMERA BETTER BEST • Manual exposure • Image Stabilization • dSLR • 17-50mm lens • External flash
  • EXPOSURE Most important variables • Aperture • Shutter speed • ISO
  • APERTURE • Often is the most important variable • Significantly impacts depth of field • Displayed in “f stops”
  • APERTURE Small Large • f/16 • Less light • Slower shutter • More DOF • f/2.8 • More light • Faster shutter • Less DOF
  • SHUTTER SPEED Choose a slow speed to emphasize movement, or a fast one to “freeze” the scene
  • ISO • Determines the sensitivity (to light) of the sensor • High ISO allows for a faster shutter, but can greatly reduce quality
  • DEPTH OF FIELD DOF is the area of the image that is in focus. It is useful for emphasizing and/or isolating subjects.
  • DEPTH OF FIELD Use a large aperture for less depth of field, more background blur
  • DEPTH OF FIELD Use a small aperture for more depth of field, less background blur
  • FOCAL LENGTH 17mm 50mm
  • ACCESSORIES • External flash • Tripod • Software (Photoshop/Lightroom/Elements)
  • Point & Shoot Cheat Sheet
  • Point & Shoot Cheat Sheet Image size—use the biggest Flash Portrait Mode Macro Landscape Mode Sports Mode
