I chose this photo by Frida Kahlo. I chose it because it caught my attention not because i like it but because its kind of weird to me. Its nothing compared to what iv’e seen from other artist. When i first saw this picture the first thing that i thought of was people go out and shoot arrows at these deers but just imagine it as if it were a human you wouldn’t do that so why do it to a deer. What i think she was trying to convey to the viewers was what i just said before this sentence maybe that’s why she put a face of herself as the deers face.
I think my photos have good composition. Since I took my pictures when there was lots of lighting I didn’t need to edit them as much but I think the editing I did was good enough to make the colors of the photos pop out and to make them look more framed. If I shot this assignment again what I would do differently is maybe find better framing because it was hard finding framing around my house. I think my photos are good but I don’t really know if they deserve to be in the school blog maybe the one in the bottom because I think it has good saturation.
wide angle – wide angles give a wide expansion view. You usually use this when taking pictures of the sunsets of views.
standard lenses – this lens is usually one you use just to take fast pictures. range from 35 mm to 85mm.
prime lenses – one of the main things you need to focus with this is the point of view. This lens is one focal length.
telephoto lenses – you usually use this lens when taking pictures of sports or wildlife. When using this you need good shutter speed.
the “fast lens”- this usually has an aperture of f/4, f/2.8 or larger. This lens can blur your pictures when having bad aperture.
1)When taking a portrait focus on one focus point try not to focus on all of them.
2) Create a shallow depth of field.
3)If you want a shallow depth of field shoot with a wide open lens.
4)You should never shoot a portrait less than 50mm try to aim for 70mm or higher.
5)When taking the photo provide direction consider the body and eyes.
What is conceptual? Conceptual is a type of photography that illustrates an idea. The photo I chose as my self portrait conceptually represents me because its an image that shows painting supplies. Which shows that I like painting. What I’m trying to represent with that image is that I enjoy painting very much. Its been seven months that I’ve been painting. At first I didn’t really like painting because it was difficult for my painting to come out as I wanted it to, but as I practiced more and more I got better. With all the free time I had when we first left school back in march I used that time to practice. My plan was to at least fill up one of my walls in my room with about twenty paintings but unfortunately I haven’t been painting as mush due to not having time threw out my day. But when I do have some free time I like to use that time to paint so I can collect up more paintings to put them all together.
- all dslr offer a dizzying selection of lenses for their cameras
- more expensive lenses have a fixed aperture
- all major camera and lens manufacturers offer a variety of focal lengths to satisfy most budgets
- wide angles give a wide expansive view
- wide angles should be used when prominent foreground objects are present
- standard lenses tend to range from about 35mm up to around 85mm
- standard zoom lenses are great walk around lenses
- telephoto lenses compress distance making everything appear closer
- a fast lens is usually one that has an aperture of f/4 or larger
- standard zooms are generally included in slr kits that come with lenses
- prime lenses are lenses that are just one focal length
- lenses in the standard zoom range will cover moderate wide angles that are 24mm to 35mm
- some fisheyes give a 180 degree field of view
- wide angles come in handy when shooting in tight areas, small rooms, cars, and caves
- the primary mistake made by new photographers is they use wide angles incorrectly
- telephoto are excellent for sports, nature, and wildlife
- if you want to shoot like a pro you’ll want to use a 300mm f/2.8 or a 400mm f/2.8
- there is a lens for every purpose
- to shoot tiny things try a macro lens
- if your shooting sports a telephoto zoom of 70-200 f/2.8 is an excellent choice
