I used manual mode and manual focus because I like having control over the settings I’m going to use like shutter speed, ISO, aperture etc. I feel like I had somewhat of a strong composition because on some of the pictures I took the item is right in the middle. I feel like I edited my photos pretty well with a good amount of light and darkness and with a vibrant red color on the soup and in the last picture the skateboard also has some red. If I did this assignment again I would frame the soup better and more creatively. I don’t think they should be considered one of the best pictures in the photo classes because I still have to practice more on taking photos and techniques I could use so they could come out better.
Techniques for good action + motion photography
Some techniques for good action sharp photography are to shoot in TV mode. Tv mode chooses everything for you but your shutter speed. Another way is to shoot in auto focus mode (AF). When you’re shooting in AF mode and you’re shooting action sharp you don’t have to be focusing manually and missing your shot. You should also use a wide lens to capture everything.
Some techniques for good motion blur are to also shoot in TV and AF mode. To shoot with a lower ISO than action sharp. Another way is to shoot with a shutter speed lower than 60th of a second. Shooting lower than 60th of a second allows you to get the blur affect. Also use a smaller aperture when shooting for motion blur.
Automatic mode-Automatic mode sets everything up for you, your shutter speed, ISO, aperture etc.
Portrait Mode-Portrait mode automatically sets you a large aperture for a shallow depth of field.
Macro Mode-Marco mode lets you take a picture from up close without going out of focus.
Landscape Mode-Landscape mode automatically sets you a small aperture for a large depth of field.
Sports mode-Sports mode lets you take a picture of moving objects in time for it to not be blurry.
Night Mode-Night mode lets you shoot in dark places and lets you capture the details in the background, but it also uses flash to capture the objects in the foreground.
Movie Mode-Movie mode lets you capture moving images.
Aperture Priority Mode-Aperture priority mode lets you choose your aperture but your camera chooses everything else for you to get a well balanced exposure.
Shutter Priority Mode-Shutter priority mode is similar to Aperture priority mode but you choose the shutter speed instead and your camera chooses everything else.
Program Mode-Program mode is similar to full auto mode but you have a bit more control over it.
Fully Manual Mode-Fully manual mode gives you control over everything.
