Exposure Settings

We’ve discussed the three settings on our cameras that we can control to adjust the exposure of our pictures: Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO.

A little review:

And an explanation of how it all fits together:

You should have, by now, shown me that you understand how the three concepts work by taking your own photos changing, recognizing, and explaining your exposure, shutter, and ISO settings.

Your last job in this section is to take a series of photos (minimum 6) in different locations, using different subjects, and using your own settings. Make sure that your camera is set on MANUAL, so that you can choose your own ISO, Shutter, and Aperture value.

Use at least 3 different settings with different light levels. For example, you could shoot a picture in the classroom with the lights off, out in the hall with the lights on, and one outside! Make sure that AT LEAST 1 of your pictures has something moving in it. Tell me what settings will help me get the best photo of something moving.

Again, you can create a simple slideshow (or other more interesting product) demonstrating AND explaining what you did to your camera (list the aperture value, shutter speed, and ISO for each, as well as tell me WHY you had to change those things to those values.)

Tell Mr. Robson what's on your mind!
