Homework for Free Summer Workshop: Shutter Speed 7/14/12

From: Sally
Sent on: Sunday, July 15, 2012 12:11 PM

Hello Photographers,

Thank you to those who attended yesterday’s lesson on Shutter Speed.  I hope you have a better grasp of how Shutter Speed can freeze action and create streaks of light.

This week, we want you to continue to practice shooting in Aperture Priority (A-Mode for Nikon, AV-Mode for Canon) as well as shooting in Shutter Priority (S-Mode for Nikon, TV-Mode for Canon).

Also, start shooting just a little bit outside on a bright sunny day in Manual Mode (M) with your ISO* on either Auto, or maximum level 200.  Take 3 or 4 pictures of the same subject with different shutter speeds - and remember to check your meter and compensate with your f/stop (Aperture) as Brooklyn mentioned yesterday.  You may need a tripod or something to rest your camera on while taking the picture.

You will keep making mistakes.  But if you continue to practice and take your time with your pictures, your will understand these features much better and your photos will eventually come out the way you want.

*Brooklyn will cover ISO more in depth at our next workshop this Saturday 7/21/12.  Boris will also be there to try to assist people with Canons -- as I can try to assist those with Nikons -- but please read your manuals and get familiar with your cameras!!

We look forward to seeing more photos posted from yesterday’s workshop.  Post your settings for the photos as well.

See you all at the ISO workshop,



PS: Since Brooklyn, Boris and myself were wearing Superman tees, we though it would be cool to wear Batman tees at the ISO workshop…
