#1: Time and Space

The purpose of this assignment is to familiarize yourself with your camera, the camera settings (ISO, aperture and shutter speed,) and metering. There are 30 photographs due for this assignment: 5 categories, 6 images per category. You can shoot anywhere you want, in any way you want. Move your body around and get creative.

1. Shallow depth of field- have a subject you focus on be roughly 2-3 ft. in front of the camera. F2-F4

2. Medium depth of field- have a subject you focus on be roughly 5-6 ft. in front of the camera. F5.6-F11

3. Deep depth of field- have a subject you focus on be roughly 15 ft. in front of the camera. F16-F22

4. Stop Action- try and be close to your action (a few feet away-) have fun with this one and you might have to shoot more than 10 images to capture what you’re looking for. Anywhere from 500-2000 (if your camera has a faster shutter, try it out)

5. Long Shutter- try and be close to your action (a few feet away-) have fun with this one and you might have to shoot more than 10 images to capture what you’re looking for. Anywhere from 1/8-several seconds. The longer the shutter speed, the darker your environment needs to be.
