New Due-Date for Assignment 2

8 Images:

  • 4 images experimenting with indicating or freezing motion.
  • 4 images experimenting with interesting effects of depth of field (DOF)

These photographs will be edited  in color.  Therefore, use the skills, tools, and filters you will learn in the next two weeks to create strong color effects in each image.

CRITIQUE: MARCH 6

Color Editing Examples from Class

Remember our discussion from class:

When you have any of the settings on your camera on "automatic", your camera is going to work to get a "perfect exposure".  That is, an exposure whose values average out to middle grey.  As a result, images can seem a bit less vibrant than it may have seemed when you were looking at the scene in person.  Therefore, we went over a few tools for editing color images in class, specifically "levels", "color balance", and "hue & saturation".  I will talk about a few more tools & filters over the next few days, as well.  

Here are the "before-and-after" images I showed you in class on Wednesday:

Assignment #2: Motion & D.O.F.

8 Images:

  • 4 images experimenting with indicating or freezing motion.
  • 4 images experimenting with interesting effects of depth of field (DOF)

These photographs will be edited  in color.  Therefore, use the skills, tools, and filters you will learn in the next two weeks to create strong color effects in each image.

CRITIQUE: FEBRUARY 25

Student Examples:


Motion














D.O.F












Aperture (Slide Images from Lecture)

  • Aperture – a hole or an opening through which light travels. More specifically, the aperture of a camera is the opening that determines the cone angle of light that comes to a focus inside the camera body.
  • Depth of Field (DOF) – in optics, particularly as it relates to photography,  the distance between the nearest and farthest objects in a scene that appear acceptably sharp and in-focus in an image.
