Hello I would like to start by saying thank you to anybody who has read my blog thourgh all of my post thank you for all your support. In this class let me just say we took a lot of photos i mean a lot I myself took over 600 photos during the class and on the weekends. what I learned in the class where should
I start I learned so much.
going into the class I knew next to nothing but with Mr.bush help I was able to learn a lot about the camera and now after the class I feel like I can go out and take a photo shoot and do pretty good at that. we learned how to control the settings in the camera two get the kind of photo that you can turn in and get good grades on controlling the shutter speed aperture and the ISO so that a photo can look its very best. like how when you shoot photos like lightpainting you want to have a very slow shutter speed so that you have time to do some cool stuff with the light so you can make something pretty beautiful and really make art with technology. on the first day of the class I did not know what to expect I had never had a class like this one before. but on first day we did something that is one of my favorite school activities we played kahoot. after that day I knew that this was going to fun and we would have some good times.
I remember the first time I opened photoshop I was so scared because there was so many different buttons and stuff It was like what I can't do that. It looked so difficult and then I realized it just isn't and then I started to like photoshop and know I feel pretty confident in it. the first time I got my camera out and mr.bush said go take some pictures I was like of what but know when I see some stuff and i'm like I wish I had my camera with me so I could take a photo of it so I could crate art.
My best photo an example on the left was voted one of the best in the class. the one on the right was one I took of a coffee table for a macro assignment that just turned out blurry and just something I did not like.
This photo I put in here to prove that I did learn some valuable stuff when it comes to light painting when I made these light painting photos. so that they looked pretty cool that I had my shutter speed set to 15 seconds that that I could get all of the cool painting done. I couldn't have done anything like this without mr.bush demo in class.
For this project I needed to know how to edit these photos together in photoshop so that looked good and would be like traditional panoramics. and that is one of the main things I learned by doing this assignment.
Ok thank you for reading this all the way thourgh it has been an honor and a joy to take this class and I would like to take the 2nd part of the class next year thank you Mr.bush for making this class fun.
for this weeks assignment I went out shout pictures of houses I thought were cool. and house that had good composition and just looked kind of cool. and houses that would lend themselves to some cool looking pictures.
for this photo I cropped out some unnecessary stuff and added some more color to part of it to make it look brighter.
for this assignment we took a photo of ourselves multiple times and add it overaginn to make it look like we were in the picture a couple times.
for this assignment we had to take pictures of people in both natural and fake light. and then we had to combine the images in photoshop.
for this weeks assignment I decided to to do light painting. I took some good photos with the light from my phone and the lights that I found around my house. credit to my sister for helping me set it up and take the pictures thanks morgan.
for my best photo I cropped out some of the unnecessary stuff in the background that took away from the photo.
for this weeks photo assignment I shot pictures of an endangered species. the orange billed swan. and a duck that was also in the water. what I learned was that shooting a moving animal can be kind of difficult.
I touched it up and cropped out some of the unnecessary stuff in photoshop.
in this assignment we were asked to take photos that overlap so that we could put them back together in photoshop i took some pictures of interesting scenes that would not fit into on photo.
for this weeks photo subject i went around in the morning and shot pictures of shadow. i had a really good experience shooting it and learned a lot more about shadows. what i struggled with in this shoot was my own shadow getting in the way of the shadows i was trying to take photos of.
for the main photo i brightened it up and cropped out some of the background stuff.
in this assignment we were tasked with making a scene in a school so that it looks like these event could actually happen. so i decided to do was to make it look the school was overrun with monsters and ghosts while adding a spooky green background.
For this weeks assignment i shoot pictures of the little baseball helmets i have around my room and pictures of my ford logo plate that I have. i had a really good experience doing it and i learned that can be hard trying not get a blurry photo.
my aperture was at 3.5 my shutter speed was 1/8 and my ISO was at 800. I touched it up in photoshop.
