During this class, we learned how to adjust our shutter speed depending on what effect to give the photos.

Slow shutter speed

Here are trials to test out the range of the slow shutter speed.

We wanted to show that the people walking will not be seen and blur out while the focus is on Mr. Martin.

Shutter speed: 1/1, Aperture: f/6.3, ISO: 200

 

Shutter speed: 1/5, Aperture: f/11, ISO: 200

 

Shutter speed: 1/10, Aperture: f/14, ISO: 200

 

After getting used to adjusting the shutter speed, we tried using our smartphones to draw lines around us.

For this slow shutter practice, I teamed up with Joshua to explore on how to take photos while adjusting the shutter speed.

Here we tried doing butterfly wings.

Shutter speed: 1/10, Aperture: f/13, ISO: 100

 

Then we tried many attempt of writing our names of top of us. It was challenging at first but we managed to get it right.

Shutter speed: 1/10, Aperture: f/14, ISO: 100

 

Shutter speed: 1/10, Aperture: f/14, ISO: 100

 

Shutter speed: 1/10, Aperture: f/14, ISO: 100

 

And last, we use two types of lights to draw circular movements behind us. One from the smartphone and the other from a key chain torchlight.

Shutter speed: 1/10, Aperture: f/14, ISO: 100

 

Shutter speed: 1/10, Aperture: f/14, ISO: 100

 

Fast shutter speed

Noel and I teamed up to do our fast shutter speed practice in the university campus. We have set to pick a place near the fine dining restaurants where the culinary students operated them.

These are photos we took by poking the water balloons using a needle.

Shutter speed: 1/2500, Aperture: f/4.5, ISO: 800

We did the same  technique but with a person’s effect.

And lastly, we include a person’s freeze action in the air.

After this assignment, I learned how to adjust my shutter speed to slow or fast while adjusting the aperture and ISO as well. Although I had difficulty at first, but I managed to improve once I practice more.
