Assignment #6

Low light/night photography assignment. I enjoyed this assignment a lot. I have a lot of experience shooting in low light so this wasn’t too hard for me to achieve. Used manual setting for this assignment.

Assignment #5

It was a bit tricky to get the setting s right on my camera, but I think I managed to do a good job. I set up the drive mode to take 3 pictures and then processed them in Photoshop afterwards. I used the manual setting for this assignment.

Stitching: 

Result: 

I slowly rotated around my living room and took pictures. The process was fairly simple and I really enjoyed the result of the stitching on photoshop after.

Assignment #3

Depth of Focus

4.0 aperture setting

10.0 aperture setting

For this week we had to take a pictures using different depth of fields and also a polarizing filter.

For these two pictures I played around with a 4.0 aperture setting and a 10.0 aperture setting. As you can see, the lower aperture setting achieves a shorter and more focused depth of focus and vice versa.

Polarizing Filter

Before:

After:

I used the reflections from my mirror to test out the polarizing filter and discovered that it significantly reduces reflections. The last picture contains much less reflections and I really enjoyed the effect/playing around with it.

Assignment #2

For my “exposure bracketing” assignment,  these three images were taken with +- 2/3 exposure bracketing, I actually think that the last one (overexposed) is the best one. I also used the custom white balance grey card technique to make the colours truer to their object.

Assignment #1

Auto White Balance: 

Custom White Balance:

I wanted to experiment with the white balance in natural light .The first picture was taken with the camer’s auto white balance, and the second one was taken with the white balance created with the medium grey card. The auto balance set the colours much warmer and truer to the way the object looks. The picture taken with the customized white balance is much more accurate to the colours of the scene, and feels a lot better to the viewer.
