What does reflecting light mean?• Reflection is defined as the bouncing back of a ray of light into the same medium, when it strikes a surface.• It occurs on almost all surfaces - some reflect a major fraction of the incident light.• Others reflect only a part of it, while absorb the rest.
A found example• There is a dark shadow on her • There is much more light on the neck neck caused by her chin. now because its being reflected. Without Reflector With Reflector
A found example• Dark shadow on her face and body caused by object from • The colour of her top is much darker due to lack of light. above blocking light. • With a reflector the top becomes lighter. • The light reflecting is filling the dark areas of the previous photo. Without Reflector With Reflector
my exampleHow I used a home-made light reflector:• I took a laminated piece of paper.• I wrapped the paper in tinfoil.• I then held the paper up next to the subject.• The tinfoil reflected the light in the room onto the subject.
my example - BeforeWithout Reflector • As there was no reflector used a shadow was created where the light from above couldn’t reach.
my example - AfterWith Reflector • In order to reduce the shadow on the side of the object I used a reflector to reflect the light on the side that was not hit directly by the light.
Shutter speed- motion blur definition• Type 1:If the subject of your photo is not moving, or you want to show the passage of time (with arunning river or waterfall), then you can use a slower shutter speed.• Type 2:When the subject in the photo is moving it then becomes blurred and the background staysthe same.
A found example • When the shutter speed increases you can almost see the pear in motion. • The movement is made visible within a a still photograph. • This is done through the blurring of the image.
A found exampleFast Shutter Speed: • Each water droplet is made visible to the human eye.
my example Type 1:• Because the person is in motion they have become so blurred • The background is out that they are not as blurred hardly visible. because the camera is not moving along with the person.
my exampleType 2: When the camera follows the moving person the background becomes blurred and they are much more visible.
my example - BeforeSlow Shutter Speed: • With a slow shutter speed the camera is only able to capture a limited amount of movement thus reducing a blur in the image.
my example - AfterFast Shutter Speed: • When the shutter speed time is decreased to 0.5 seconds the image becomes blurry as the camera is picking up every movement.

Composition – Framing definition• Framing is using objects in the picture to create a frame around the subject.• This is a good way to make a photograph look interesting and draw attention to the subject.• The most basic trick to good composition is called the rule of thirds.
A found exampleBad Framing • Far too much empty space makes the picture appear awkward an not appealing to the eye. • The head of this person has been cut off due to poor framing.
A found exampleGood Framing • The people are in the centre of the frame which stops anything being cut off e.g. their heads or arms.
my exampleBad Framing • Empty and awkward• Because the framing is so spacing. poor, the eye is unable to focus on anything in the scenery.• This makes the photo unappealing to look at despite the setting.
my exampleGood Framing• The flowers are placed exactly in the centre of • Because they are in the frame. the centre the photo is more attractive and appealing as this makes it easier for the eye to focus on the object.
my example - Before • Empty and awkward • The edge of spacing. the picture is cut off.• The poor framing doesn’t allow the eye to comfortably focus on the object.
my example - After• The picture is now in the centre of the frame allowing you to focus on it.• There is no awkward space to take away focus.
