For this assignment you should shoot as many pictures as you need to capture life in your neighborhood. These photos should demonstrate an understanding of your composition guidelines & techniques. 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...
You need to shoot in DNG
Start your ISO at 400 - You can change it to a higher ISO (no more than 800) if you have less available light or you can change it to a lower ISO if you have a lot of available light.
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.
NO NIGHT PHOTOS - NO PHOTOS INDOORS
Take a minimum of 25 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. You will edit in class. 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 25 photos, date it was taken and file name. Upload this to Schoology. 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 blog in your Photography 1 page called Life in my Neighborhood. Make sure you create a heading for this assignment. 9. You will upload your 10 edited images as a gallery. Please do not upload your photos individually. Use 2 columns only and make sure the image size is FULL SIZE. Under Link To, select Attachment page. 10. In a caption, write the composition guideline for each photo. 11. Create a new heading called BEST 5 OR FINAL 5.
