For the shutter speed and motion photoshoot, I decided take pictures of the things around me including my family and friends, sports teams and much more. I went to soccer games, tennis matches, backyards, and outside! In order to set up my scene, I made sure I set my subject matter in front of a good background, and made sure the camera was on the proper settings in order to take the right picture for the right category.
Throughout this photoshoot, I decided to use the rules of composition in order to make my picture look good, and have such things as a good background. It is important to have a good background, to make sure the picture you are taking is not too busy, and has a good balance of color. I also used things like getting close, and not centering my subject. In order to use the elements and principles, I made sure to use things such as color and balance to make my picture look the best it can be!
In order to choose my subject matter, I took into consideration what Mrs. Hahn had recommended would be the coolest pictures for each category.for example using lights in the dark would look very cool for the blur motion, and this picture ended up being my favorite picture of the assignment! I incorporated my voice, when making sure to use bright and happy colors, and use people in my life such as family and friends. This assignment made me view my world differently, by making it harder to think of multiple ideas for the same category, so I could have a variety of different subject matters. It makes you be more aware of your surroundings, and how to capture those surroundings, based on what you are taking a picture of.
My strengths for this assignment, was being able to come up with cool and interesting ideas for my pictures, including what to take pictures of, and what objects to incorporate in my photo. Weaknesses that I had during this photoshoot, included figuring out all the different settings on the camera itself, as these are somewhat different, depending on the camera you are using. One thing I would change about this assignment would be taking a class period, to fully understand the different camera settings. although this would be helpful, I also found it a good and interesting challenge to figure out the different settings on our own, and being able to experiment with the camera!
