13 things I learned in my photography class (in no order)
photography is threefold Science-technical and art --trying to keep all in mind
1. how to take florescent st night (very slow shutter since they pulse)
2.moving in close makes a whole new Photograph w/ a whole new interest
3.and makes inanimate objects more abstract
4. Showing motion while keeping the background clear(bulb shutter speed)h
5."Catching " an image takes being on the right settings before hand so your camera is in ready for where you are
6.Rule of thirds trying not to put subjects dead center creates more interest
7.When taking people outsidein daylight still use flash (you may want them to take off glasses) or not
8. all night time photography requires a tripod
9.How to balance golden glow of lights at night
(tungsten white balance)
10.When shooting objects w/ extra light such as faceted "jewels circle the item to see where you get the best shot
11.to get sharper B&W images shoot in monochrome off your camera's menu
12.When photographing food it is all about lighting
13.Good Studio shots require Very Good Lighting
andtake what you love even if it doesn't follow all the "rules"
What I learned most is I have a lot more to learn-- but I will have fun Practicing!!!
