Through a range of exercises which focus on the major aspects of photography (depth of field, shutter speed and manual light metering) you will be able to use your camera on its manual setting, and have creative control over your picture taking. Through a study of various photographers, you will have an understanding of the best use of such effects, which you can then transfer to your own practice.
- At least 4 photographs that illustrate changes in depth of field when you change the aperture, focal length and distance to the subject.
- At least 4 photographs that illustrate use of selective or manual focus.
- At least 4 photographs that illustrate the creative use of shutter speed to blur or freeze the movement.
- All of the pictures above must be accompanied by an explanation of the settings on your camera, and an explanation as to why the effects have taken place.
