  • 1.      INTRO WHY A DSLR & WHAT MAKES A GOOD PHOTO? THE HOLY TRINITY OF DSLR PHOTOGRAPHY COMPOSITION ISO Plan of the weekend
  • 2. MOBILE Phone 8mpxl Camera NIKON DSLR with 50mm f/1.8 lens
  • 3. What makes a good portrait?
  • 4. YUSUF KARSH
  • 5. CECIL BEATON
  • 6. CHARLENE SHREUDER
  • 7. The Exposure Triangle
  • 8. Remember: The lower the ‘f-number’ or ‘f-stop’ the WIDER the aperture
  • 9. SQUINTING gives you a larger depth of field. So does having a small aperture/high f-stop. The smaller the F-Number (therefore the wider the aperture) the shallower the depth of field.
  • 10. LIGHT Wider apertures let more light into the camera, smaller apertures do the opposite. Great in dark situations and keeps the shutter speed FAST and ISO DOWN.
  • 11. <-85mm f/1.8 Zooms with wide apertures, known as ‘fast zooms’ are VERY expensive. Fast prime lenses have a fixed focal length but are cheaper…and more creative! Wide aperture prime lenses: Perfect for portraits!
  • 12. • SWITCH TO ‘A’ or ‘Ap’ – Mode / Keep ISO to 300/400 • The camera will manage your shutter speed, so you can manually adjust your aperture’s size. • Try shooting different objects close to you at your lowest f-number (widest aperture setting) and again at the highest f-number (smallest aperture). EXERCISE
  • 13. The length of time that the camera’s film or sensor are exposed to light. Time, measured in fractions of a second that the shutter is OPEN. 1/8000 - 30 seconds / *Bulb *Bulb - an option that allows you to keep the shutter open indefinitely. Only usable with shutter release cable. SHUTTER SPEED
  • 14. -Faster speeds give sharper images when hand holding. -No lower than 1/80 when hand holding. 1/400 1/60 1/30
  • 15. • Set your camera to Shutter Priority Mode ‘S’ or ‘Sp’ – the camera will manage the aperture setting, allowing you control of the shutter speed and exposure time. • Experiment with different shutter speeds and capture the party popper’s motion, either freezing it – or capturing the movement. • Start by trying the following speeds 1/30, 1/100, 1/500 Exercise 2
  • 16. • Dictates the camera sensor’s sensitivity to light. • The higher ISO number, the higher the sensitivity. • High sensitivity keeps the shutter speed higher, but increases grain/noise. ISO (international standards organisation)
  • 17. The Photographer’s Juggling Act
  • 18. The rule of thirds A solid guideline to discourage placement of the subject at the center, or prevent a horizon from appearing to divide the picture in half. COMPOSITION
  • 19. The rule of thirds In portraits – try to align the eyes up with the line of the top third. COMPOSITION
  • 20. • The classic rule of thumb: ‘Fill the frame’ • Zooming into a face will always give a feature to a photograph COMPOSITION
  • 21. • The classic rule of thumb: ‘Fill the frame’ COMPOSITION
  • 22.  http://vimeo.com/63602119 The Impact of Lighting
  • 23.  Even lighting on the face is essential. Always try and shoot in the shade but avoid mottled light from leaves! Clouds are a natural diffuser – cloudy conditions usually provide perfect light. Portraiture Tips
  • 24.  Get a vintage look – get creative and use sun flare to your advantage. Portraiture Tips
  • 25. Ideal mix of wide aperture and long focal length.  Fast zooms and prime lenses are perfect.  Prime lenses much cheaper.  The best Lenses for portraits
  • 26.  In bright sun? Turn the subject’s back to the it and light their face with flash or a reflector to balance. Portraiture Tips
  • 27. 120mm Zoom lenses compress features, great for portraits! 200mm Tip: Focal length compression
  • 28. Reflectors/diffusers Off camera flash / speedlight Useful Accessories
