Photo technical - how did they do it

  1. 1. How did they do it? •What technical choices did these photographers make?
  2. 2. Exposure Variables Possible Settings When do I use it?Shutter Speed 1/8000 = fast = opens and •Bright situations closes quickly •Reduce blur(measured as a •Freeze actionfraction of a second) 2 seconds = slow = long •Dark situations exposure •Creates blur (from subject movement and camera movement)Aperture f/2.8 = open •Dark situation •Shallow depth of field(measured as afraction) f/22 = closed •Bright situation •Deep depth of fieldFilm Speed 100 ISO = insensitive to •Bright situations light (tans slowly) •Creates superb image quality(measured in ISO inthe hundreds) 3200 ISO = sensitive to •Dark situations light (burns quickly) •Image quality suffersLenses 20 mm = wide angle •Wide angle of view •Distorted perspective(measured in focal •Used in tight situationslength as millimeters) 300 mm = telephoto •Narrow angle of view •Compressed perspective •Used when far from subject
  3. 3. Lens: Normal (50mm) Shutter Speed: Slow (1/8)Aperture (Depth of Field): Open (f/2.8) ISO: High (3200)
  4. 4. Lens: Telephoto (400mm) Shutter Speed: Fast (1/4000)Aperture (Depth of Field): Open (f/2.8) ISO: Regular (200-400)
  5. 5. Lens: Wide Angle Shutter Speed: Normal (1/250)Aperture (Depth of Field): Closed (f/11-16) ISO: Normal (200-400)
  6. 6. Lens: Telephoto (200mm) Shutter Speed: Slow (1/60 perhaps)Aperture (Depth of Field): Closed (f/11) ISO: Normal (400-800)
  7. 7. Lens: Wide Angle (20mm) Shutter Speed: Slow (1/60)Aperture (Depth of Field): Open (f/4-5.6) ISO: 800 ISO
  8. 8. Lens: Normal (50 mm) Shutter Speed: Slow (1/8)Aperture (Depth of Field): Open (f/2.8) ISO: 3200 ISO
  9. 9. Lens: Wide angle (20 mm) Shutter Speed: Fast (1/4000)Aperture (Depth of Field): Closed (f/16) ISO: Normal (200-400)
  10. 10. Lens: Telephoto (400m) Shutter Speed: Slower (1/60)Aperture (Depth of Field): Open (f/2.8) ISO: Normal (400 ISO)
  11. 11. Homework for Tomorrow:1. Find 3 photojournalism photographs (from a website, a magazine, a newspaper). Explain what you think were key technical decisions in creating those photographs. What do you think were the shutter speeds, apertures, lenses and film speeds used?2. Find a photojournalism photograph that is a bit more technically challenging than you think you can explain. We will talk about some of these photographs and I will do my best to explain how the photographer created them.
