Camera Controls Mini Brief

What is a “Stop”?

“Stop” is halving or doubling the amount of light coming into the light sensor. This can be altered using the ISOAperture or Shutter Speed. For example. changing the Shutter Speed from 1/100 to 1/200 is doubling the amount of light coming into the camera. from 1/100 to 1/50 is halving the amount of light coming into the camera.

“Depth of Field” is how much of the viewfinder is in focus with the surroundings. For example, a photo of a flower. Using f/11 and higher will give you a large depth of field (left photo). Whereas using f/4 and below will give you a shallow depth of field (right photo).

Shallow Depth of Field Photos:

I decided to take these photos as I thought they showed somewhat Shallow Depth of Field. I am pleased with these photos as I feel like they have different meanings to them. Next time I would try to shoot more creatively as some images are similar.

Large Depth of Field Artists:

Large Depth of Field Photos:

I decided to take these certain photographs as I feel like they portray Large Depth of Field well. I am pleased with how the photos have turned out as I think they look clean. Next time I would make sure to shoot all of my photos on camera raw so I could then edit them further and make them look better.

What is “Shutter Speed”?

The “Shutter Speed” is the amount of time the shutter is being left open for. 1/250 is equal to 250th of a second. 1/30 is letting in half as much light as 1/60, whereas 1/60 is letting in double the light 1/30 is.

Blurred Movement Artists:

Blurred Movement Photos:

I am not very pleased with these photos as I don’t feel like they show blurred movement properly, as the background is also blurred as well as the subject, making this camera shake. I like the subjects I decided to photo, however next time I should spend more time researching how to successfully capture a blurred movement photograph.

Frozen Movement Artists:

Frozen Movement Photos:

I am somewhat happy with these photos, as they fractionally show frozen movement. I like the way the photos are shown here. Next time I would firstly choose different subjects to shoot, and secondly try to get the subject moving faster to properly show the idea of frozen movement.
