Photography class


So...I have been taking a photography class for the past month or so, and although I find it extremely hard, I think my pictures are improving and I have learned a lot of new stuff, some of which I will be able to transfer to my doll pictures to make them better quality!

Each week the teacher gives us a new technique or style of photography, teaches how to execute it, and then gives us homework. I thought I'd share my homework pictures here, because 
I actually really like some of them, plus I have recently been at a loss for what to post (hence the not posting in forever,) And this seemed like it might make an interesting-ish post. Let me know if you liked it and I'll post more of my homework as I get it!

Week one of my homework was bracketing, which is taking a series of pictures showing the different settings. This picture was part of my aperture  (the amount of focus in the background) bracket.  I would have shown my whole bracket but my edited ones are currently un-accessible and the originals were both over and under exposed. 

For week one I also had to take a ISO and shutter speed bracket. Here is my ISO bracket: (By the way, this bracket was super rushed and I really don't like it, but I had to use it.)

I barely see a difference in lighting in this bracket like I was supposed too, but whatever :| I like this next one much better:

My week 1 shutter speed bracket 

I had a lot of fun shooting this bracket! I love it because it's so colorful :D

So that's it for week 1 homework.

Week 2 homework was even harder because it was panning, which is following a moving object with the camera and creating a blurred background. I hardly achieved this. Once again we had to take brackets, but only two this time. Unfortunately, I only managed to finish one. 

I know I have the whole bracket, but it is in light room, not iPhoto, so I'll just share one picture today. 

See the effect in the background?

So, last weeks homework was two pictures, one of light trails, and one of light painting. 

This is my light trails picture. It was taken with a 5 second exposure. 

This next one is light painting:

I think this one came out really cool! 

That's it! I might post this weeks homework, depending on how it comes out. 
                                    Thanks for reading!
                          Which picture is your favorite??


  1. These are so cool!!! I love the last two! :)

    1. Thank you! I had fun taking those:D

  2. How in the world did you do the light trails one? I really like these pictures. I really wish my school offered photography classes.

    1. Thank you! I did it by setting up my camera on a tripod and set it to a long exposure. It is actually really easy! Yeah, that would be cool! It's one of the reasons I love being homeschooled :)

  3. Cool! I love the road photo. :)


  4. Light trails! Holy mother of nachos! I've got to try that!

    1. Lol! Hope it goes well for you XD


I love comments! Thank you for writing to me :)
