Transcript of Good Bad & Ugly

What makes a good picture good?
What makes a bad picture bad?
To become a photographer
is to decide that
your chosen method for
interpreting life
and revealing your
findings to others is
the camera.

Start Practicing!

> Start carrying your camera with you at all times!

>Practice framing your shots.

>Use your eyes as a visual camera, and start taking mental pictures.
Find an interesting subject...it can literally be anything!
Some ideas could be:
Capture daily life and daily activities
Go to one place and take 3 pictures: 1 of people, 1 of the place, 1 abstract
Take an image every 20 minutes for 2 hours
Find subjects that are "off the beaten path"
What do I take pics of?
Once you have a subject, find an area (inside or outside) with good lighting.
~A cloudy day is actually the best day to shoot pictures, unless you purposely want harsh shadows from the sun.
~DO NOT take pictures inside unless you have nice natural lighting from windows and etc.
Pay attention to the LIGHT!
Contrast is simply pairing two or more opposite items together so they visually play off each other.
>Dark object on light background
>Solid object on patterned cloth
**Always use a clean background that will not distract from main subject!
Contrast Elements to make it unique!
Compositional Elements!
~Pay attention to Lines! If they are meant to be straight, make sure they appear straight in your image.

~Really care about what you take an image of! Do not just "take pictures", instead, "capture moments".

~Don't get snap happy! Take time and care when framing and composing images.
Last but not Least...
Project #3: 3 Things, 6 Ways
-Photograph 3 separate subjects and capture 6 very different images of those 3 subjects.

-Lighting: Try your hardest to find natural light
-Colors/Patterns: Look for things with contrasting colors or patterns. Also look for subjects that have a lot of visual or physical texture
-Composition: Follow the rule of thirds or straight symmetry, shoot at interesting angles, fill the frame with your subject, don't cut people off at the limbs.
-Capture a total of 18 images and bring them to class by Monday, ready to edit.
The Auto setting on the camera is meant to be used when the photographer is unsure about how to use the camera or what appropriate setting it needs to be set too. The Auto setting on the camera allows the camera to make all of the decisions in the set up stage to take a picture.
Portrait mode is a setting made for portraits. It has a large aperture setting that is great for depth of field and lighting.
Landscape mode is made to show a long distance. It was a small aperture opening that allows more detail to appear in the final image.
Macro is a large aperture setting. It has the ability to blur the background slightly while leaving the focus on the foreground or the subject without harm.
Sports mode is meant to capture things in motions. It has a fast shutter speed and can capture something extremely quickly.
How is composition effectively achieved in these images?
the structure of how an image is made...
Leading lines are one of the most effective and under-utilized compositional tools available to photographers. They're used to draw a viewers attention to a specific part of the frame, whether it's a person, or a vanishing point in the background of the frame.
The rule of thirds is applied by aligning a subject with the guide lines and their intersection points, placing the horizon on the top or bottom line, or allowing linear features in the image to flow from section to section.
Whether it be a very literal frame, environmental, or structural framing, framing with light or lack of light, they all work well to bring the viewer's eye to your subject.
Vantage point in photography refers to the place or position of the camera. Manipulating the point of view allows the photographer to change the audience interaction with image.
When capturing images, it is just as vastly important to pay attention to the background in the image as you do the main subject.
Cropping refers to the removal of the outer parts of an image to improve framing, accentuate subject matter or change aspect ratio.
Pattern photography utilizes elements that are repeated. The repetition of lines, shapes, tones or color can create interesting images. There are photographers who use the pattern as the main subject of an image while others use it to enhance the overall composition and look of the photograph.
Balance is a compositional technique in photography that juxtaposes images within a frame so that the objects are of equal visual weight. When different parts of a photo command your attention equally, perfect balance is achieved.
Composition Booklet Requirements:
Elements to be included in Composition Booklet:
- Page coverings for each element and outside
- Page inserts with definition and descriptions
- 2-4 images for each compositional element on pages
