Transcript of Photography ICP

My topic: For my ICP topic, I chose photography. I wanted to learn more about elements of a good photograph and get better at photography. It was already a hobby of mine but I wanted to be better so I decided to study it for ICP.
I really like photography and it is a good artistic outlet. A good photograph can display a persons feelings and show a scene. Photography is personally my favorite type of art. Elements of photography Line Line is one of the strongest and most influential elements of a photograph. It naturally guides your eye in the scene. It affects how we view the picture. Lines can be diagonal, straight, zigzag, radial, curvy, horizontal, vertical, etc. Rule of Thirds The rule of thirds is imagining that your image is divided into 9 separate areas. It helps your photo to be more balanced when you align your subject with one of the lines that you imagine on the picture. You can align your subject with a whole line or an intersection. Texture Lighting Lighting is very important in a photo. It can change the mood easily, simply by making it very dark, or very light. It shows and accents texture in a picture too. Photography By Allie Riley Texture is another element of a photograph. It moves deep emotions in a person. Texture is for the most part based on one element- light. Light accentuates the textures in a picture and gives more depth to a picture. my example: My examples: My examples: my example: Some examples: Light Painting Magic Hour Shutter Speed Bokeh Light painting (Also called "light graffiti") is done by extending your shutter speed. The shutter on a camera is what absorbs the light in a picture. I decided to put it to 30 seconds when I tried light painting, and it worked okay, though you can buy remotes to control the shutter and have it open for a longer time. To light paint, you turn off the lights in the room (or go outside at night) and "paint" something in the air with a light source, such as a flashlight or glow stick, and the open shutter absorbs the light from the light source, in the shape of whatever you painted. This light painting is done with steel wool that is lit on fire. You attach it to a string then spin it around you in a circle, while it's burning. The sparks flying off from it add a cool element. My attempts: Here are some example of photos I have taken while doing the project and learning about photography. This project has helped me to learn a lot about photography and improve in many ways. I have tried to apply many of the methods and ideas into my pictures. There are long shutter and short shutter shots in photography. Long shutter is done just like light painting, with extending the amount of time that the shutter is left open. It can create a ghostly feeling to the picture. Sometimes it can show multiples of things, if they are moved while the shutter is open. Short shutter freezes objects in motion, and is used to take pictures of sports or fast moving objects like water splashing. My example: In this picture, the boy moved his face while the shutter was open, and the shutter absorbed the light from when he had his face both ways. In this, the woman stood still while the train was captured in action. It gives it a cool effect. Magic hour is when the lighting is best in the day for taking pictures. It is also called "golden hour". It is from when the sun is 10-12 degrees above the horizon, and 10-12 degrees below the horizon (The first hour of light in the morning and the last hour of light in the evening). It produces great lighting for pictures, because there is not the harsh direct sunlight as there is in the middle of the day, yet it isn't too dark. Color Long shutter: Short shutter: My examples: Colors can affect the mood of the picture and are very important. To balance out colors you can use colors that lie opposite from each other on the color wheel, they will compliment each other. There are warm colors (like yellow, orange and red) and cool colors (like green, purple, and blue). Warm colors appear to come forward to the eye and cool color recede back from the eye. So, to create a 3-D feel to your picture you can layer a warm color on top of a cool color, such as having an orange object in front of a blue object. Pictures taken during magic hour: Bokeh is the out of focus area of a picture. It refers to anything outside of the depth of field in a picture. Lights are sometimes used in the background of images so they will be blurred into bokeh and give the picture a unique feel. the term comes from the Japanese word "boke" meaning blur or haze. The "H" was added to the end of the word in 1998 when it became a popular term in America, because when people would see the word they would pronounce it like it rhymed with joke or smoke. My examples: These are only some of the main elements of photography, there are many, many more. The end!
Thanks for watching! One of my pictures taken during magic hour:
