I just got done shooting some pictures for my Basics of Photography class. Our assignment is to use shutter speed to learn the motion-blur, panning, and stop-motion techniques. While I’m not sure these are the photos I’ll use, it was fun to see what I could do. All of these were shot in shutter priority mode on a Canon Rebel xt at Ivy Tech.
f/14, Shutter Speed 1/30 – Panning to create background blur, but keeping object in focus (my favorite)
f/13, Shutter Speed 1/30 – Creating blur of the subject to show motion
f/3.5, Shutter Speed 1/1000 – Stopping the motion
On Monday, my professor in my Fundamentals of Imaging class assigned two new projects. One is dealing with iMovie, and I could care less. I don’t do movies, and I hate being in front of a camera, which is required for the project.
On the other hand, I’m SOOO excited about the other one: design a book cover! I think this could be a lot of fun. We have to do the cover, the spine and the back and allow for margines for printing, which we will do. It has to be at least a 5×7 book. There are so many books that I could choose to re-create that I’m having a hard time narrowing it down. I’ve been to barnesandnoble.com, and there are some pretty cool ones out right now.
