Assign 31 photography skills and editing skills

  1. 1. Assignment 3: Photography Research & Practice L/O: to learn about photography basics and basic photo editing to make your presentation (for evidence of the processes and technology) A) Photography B) Photo editing
  2. 2. For this task you will need…. • iphoto on your ipad! (its free now) • There are other great photo editing programs too 
  3. 3. Photography basics Photography basics (production) • Lighting (various things) break up into parts • Shutter speed • Shallow focus / deep focus • Transferring photo’s to computer (file and iphoto) • Composition break up into parts – – – – – rule of thirds Powerpoints changing angle/perspective framing leading lines
  4. 4. Dividing the work • After watching the slides you will have to think carefully of how you are dividing the work • Lighting is MASSIVE, Composition is BIG • It is group, but you have to have understanding of all of these things!
  5. 5. Lighting • • • • • • • Overexposure Underexposure Key (high key, low key) Fill Using flash Reflecting/reflectors Diffusing/diffusers • When using iPad, rely on good daylight and cheap lighting (flood lights) and DIY reflectors
  6. 6. Flood lights • Cheap and easy to get (hardware stores) • From 10-30 pounds
  7. 7. underexposure
  8. 8. overexposure
  9. 9. Good exposure
  10. 10. underexposed Over overexposed Just right under
  11. 11. Setting up lighting Called: 3 point lighting system
  12. 12. High key lighting: flooded with all light
  13. 13. Low key lighting: strong contrasts
  14. 14. Fill
  15. 15. Using flash • Can’t rely on this alone • Too harsh of light (direct) • Often causes over/under exposure
  16. 16. Using direct flash
  17. 17. Linking filling and flash • Using flash (or other light) can be a way to FILL • (meaning filling in the shadows)
  18. 18. Diffuse • Diffuse = disseminate, reduce, make less • Because direct flash is so strong, you can DIFFUSE it to make it more soft • There are many tools and techniques to do this
  19. 19. More professional diffusers
  20. 20. DIY diffusers
  21. 21. Natural diffuse • The leaves are Diffusing the light of the sun
  22. 22. Reflect • Reflecting is another way to diffuse light • Basically light is reflected or bounced off another surface (therefore making it less harsh) • The more light bounces, the less harsh it is • Different surfaces/textures/colours will reflect light differently (shiny, opaque, translucent) • .
  23. 23. Reflect (therefore diffuse)
  24. 24. Shutter speed • • • • How fast shutter opens Slow = likely to blur Fast = like to be more crisp Motion blur – Motion blur type 1 (background is blurry) – Motion blur type 2 (object is blurry) • Exposure – Long exposure – Paint lighting
  25. 25. • Shutter is like eye And eye lids of a camera It is like how a camera blinks
  26. 26. FAST SHUTTER SPEED • Capturing split second
  27. 27. Very fast shutter speed!
  28. 28. Motion blur • When something blurs because it is in motion • This means it is going too fast for the shutter speed • (object is faster than shutter) • Type 1 • Type 2
  29. 29. Type 1 • The objects are crisp, background blurry • (moving camera)
  30. 30. Type 2: objects blurry What does this create in photos?
  31. 31. Exposure • Time of exposure = how long the camera is exposed to light • Faster shutter speed = less light (and more likely to be darker) • Slower shutter speed = more light gets in faster (more likely to be lighter)
  32. 32. Shutter speed and light
  33. 33. Long exposure at night (using tripod) Light painting Long exposure with light/flash
  34. 34. Shallow focus • When have something in focus, the rest blurry • Limited on automatic cameras • When taking photos, tap for focus square……or try with close ups • You can do this in editing (is limited tho) (blur tools)
  35. 35. Deep Focus • Everything in focus (automatic cameras)
  36. 36. Transfer photos from camera to computer • • • • • • How do you do this? SD card – SD card reader Cables Bluetooth Electronic transfers – email, sharing, social media etc Cloud • Uploading/opening them • Think of the technologies involved in this process
  37. 37. Composition: rule of thirds • Review rule • To make better photographs (nicer/more pleasing to look at)
  38. 38. Composition: powerpoints • In combination with rule of thirds; the AXIS points of horizontal/vertical lines. • 4 available (where horiz/vert lines meet) • -theory argues things placed in powerpoints make the best composition
  39. 39. Composition: angles/perspectives • Try to photograph objects/places/people using different angles and perspectives • The world becomes a different place! • The life on an ant vs life of a bird • This goes great with establishing shots/montage editing for your introductions
  40. 40. Normal photography/shots
  41. 41. Try different angles!
  42. 42. • Get low!!!
  43. 43. Composition: framing • • • • • How you frame objects/people Frame using unique angles Positive space Negative space Is the space around objects appropriate and comfortable for audience? • Does it show off the objects/characters appropriately?
  44. 44. Yikes!
  45. 45. Good framing
  46. 46. Composition: leading lines • • • • Lines that lead your eye Usually lines to lead your eye to an object (sort of like a journey) Create movement in a composition
  47. 47. • Don’t have to be straight lines…
  48. 48. Photography apps • • • • • iPhoto photo editing Snapseed photo editing Slow Shutter changing shutter speed Colour Effects manipulating colour Guardian eyewitness? • Any others???
  49. 49. Assignment 31 • Printed booklet • A = due wed • B = due fri • Divide the work….. • Make your powerpoint template….
  50. 50. Photo editing Basic photo editing in iphoto (post-production) • opening a photo • undo (arrow) (bottom corner star - remove effect) • revert to original (page icon beside edit) • crop & rotate • changing colour • changing exposure (lightness/darkness) • brushes (repair, red eye, saturate, desaturate, lighten, darken, sharpen, soften) • effects (b&w, vintage, duotone etc) • auto enhance • rotate • naming, tagging • sharing: email, journal, camera roll, itunes, facebook, imovie, etc. • If using snapseed or other programs = what tools/techniques can you used?
  51. 51. Open app • Open and play with iphoto • Remember = SCREEN GRABS!
