For this assignment you should shoot as many pictures as you need to capture ten photos of life in your neighborhood. These photos should demonstrate an understanding of the current lesson. You will use Lightroom CC on your cell phone to shoot this assignment. Make sure you use Professional Mode in order to control your settings such as: ISO, Exposure, White Balance and Shutter Speed (Seconds).
A few pointers when taking photos in Lightroom with the Professional Mode...
Start your ISO at 400
Keep your WB in auto
Slide the Secs (Shutter speed) either higher or lower to see the exposure change. Make sure you never shoot less than 1/60 second. If you do you will have camera shake. The higher the seconds (ex.. 1/1000) the faster the shutter. The lower the seconds (ex. 1/60) the slower your shutter.
Make sure you take your photos during the day. The best time to photograph is early morning, or late afternoon.
Take a minimum of 20 photos to edit your best 10!.
The concepts I’m looking for are:
Rule of thirds
Point of View
etc..... review your composition guidelines notes
Your photos should be well composed. properly exposed, and in focus. Basically, for this assignment, I just want to see how well you can take a picture which follows the rules of good composition.
After you finish shooting your pictures, you will use Lightroom CC to edit your images. 1. Shoot your pictures in Lightroom CC mobile. 2. Create a new album with the assignment name. Then add these photos to that album. 3. Rate your photos 1-5 stars 4. Shoot more photos if necessary. 5. Flag the 10 photos you will be editing 6. Screen shot your LR gallery showing the 20 photos and the date it was taken. 7. Edit your images on Lightroom CC. Make sure your editing style is uniform. 8. Once you are done editing your images, you will create a new page in your website called Basics of Composition. Make sure this page is under your previous assignment. 7. You will upload your 10 edited images as a gallery or slideshow. Please do not upload your photos individually. 8. Write a two paragraph reflection for this assignment. You can write about:
