Predetermined Portrait Photography
Predetermined Still Photography
Today's Takeaway and To Do's:
While some photo situations are ideal and some where you will have full control over, do not be discouraged in capturing moments. After all, moments are those candid shots that we want to be sure to never miss. Fussing with settings will only disappoint you because you run the risk of missing the moment all together. Just be sure to be prepared for how you will handle situations that are not as ideal.
1. Get out and use that camera this week. Plan for the unexpected, carry your camera with you even a point and shoot, look for those candid moments and just take the picture.
2. Plan a fully controlled portrait shoot of your child or friend. All I want you to do in this setting, is getting your subject in full shade and take the pictures in Manual Exposure (M). Set your ISO to 200 if sunny, 400 if cloudy. Next set your aperture (f/stop) to 3.5, dial in your exposure meter, setting your shutter speed until you get the correct exposure, now take a picture. We are only focusing on getting the exposure correct for now. So have fun! Great job today!
See you tomorrow!
