Good Sunday afternoon, Peas! Congratulations on completing Week 1 .

Last week, we saw some good examples of how your chosen aperture (f/stop) can affect the amount of your subject that is in focus (depth of field) for a given photo.

Now it's time to tackle the other two components of the exposure triangle: ISO and Shutter Speed!

Here are my shots for this week's exercise. My kitchen sink area is poorly lit, so I opted for the hose and a bowl of water in bright sunshine!

50mm | f/20 | 1/80 | ISO 200 | Tv Mode


50mm | f/4.5 | 1/1600 | ISO 200 | Tv Mode


You can see the blur of hose water in the first shot and the "stop motion" of the stream of water in the second shot. I was using a tripod for these.

I'm also quite proud to say that after last week, I now understand WHY the depth of field is different on my two photos. Because I was shooting in Tv Mode, I chose the shutter speed and the camera chose the aperture to keep the photo properly exposed. In the first picture, my low shutter speed (1/80) allowed my shutter to be open longer - thus letting in more light and allowing for a narrower aperture of f/20. When I changed my shutter speed to 1/1600, that meant that my shutter would be open for a significantly shorter period of time - letting less light into the camera. To compensate, the camera chose a wider aperture (f/4.5) to let more light in and keep the photo properly exposed.

Looks good Amanda! I was sort of wondering if we could "cheat" and go outside! We have a fountain, so if I get home in time tomorrow I'm going to use that.

Slightly OT, but I just have to ask -- did anyone else read this week's lesson and go "OMG, I have to take pictures in the kitchen sink?! Are you kidding me?!"

Alesa -- those are great. It's amazing how water looks when we slow it down, isn't it?

I took these at the fountain outside. I thought I had gotten the ISO a little lower at some point, but I guess not. I'm not sure why I had it set so high. It was evening but still...

Bahahahaha!!! Yes, I did think the same thing...main reason why I still haven't taken my pics yet...lol! Fall break begins after I finish parent/teacher conferences tomorrow, so maybe I can clean my sink and take some pics...hahaha!

Here are my photos for this week's lesson. I was hoping to get down to the local water garden and do something creative but the time got away from me so I had to just use the faucet outside my house.

Photo 1 - Mode: Shutter-Priority, Shutter Speed: 1/80, Aperture: f/29, ISO: 200, Focal Length: 51mm


Photo 2 - Mode: Shutter-Priority, Shutter Speed: 1/1250, Aperture: f/7.1, ISO: 200, Focal Length: 51mm


Photo 3 - Mode: Shutter-Priority, Shutter Speed: 1/4000, Aperture: f/5.6, ISO: 200, Focal Length: 51mm

I did have to lighten this photo in PSE as it was dark. I forgot to up the ISO.

1/200 iso6400 f/5


*learned a lot* like that it took me 15 minutes to realize I had an extension tube on my 50mm and that was why I couldn't get it in focus (not close enough). Noticed I was focusing on the wall, not on the water.

Keep wild 4yo out of kitchen when camera is on tripod and Mom is reading the lesson plans.

Couldn't figure out how to get a shutter speed faster than 1/200 on my Canon T2i.

Fascinating, now going to bed with my book to figure out how to actually USE my camera.

Awesome lesson!

It was night time, and not too light in my house when I took these...for the 1/1000, I added lots of lights in order for it to show up.

42mm, 1/80, f/5, ISO 1600, Tv mode


46mm, 1/1000, f/5, ISO 1600, Tv Mode


40mm, 1/2 sec, f/8, ISO 1600, Tv Mode


I need to practice this lesson some more...there was alot to learn...but NOW I understand all of the settings on my camera!!! Yippie!!!

I ended up not having the twins this week, but I have my nephew.... and I'm pretty sure having 10 kids versus just him would have been easier LOL

Theresa - your sig is hilarious!

I see the difference in the shots. It can be hard to get these inside because of the lower light available which means the higher shutter speeds are underexposed. I ended up squatting outside by the hose bib on the front of the house to get some for this lesson, when the inside ones I posted didn't really tell me the tale I needed to hear/see to "get it".

I'm sure the neighbors think I'm crazy. Yours?

Hehehe My cousin is my neighbor, So I'm sure he already *knows* I'm crazy!!! BUT he is also an amazing photographer.... so he *understands* LOL Speaking of my cousin.... THIS is how I know it is not the camera but the person behind it...... A few weeks ago I took my camera over to him, explaining that something MUST be wrong with my camera because I couldn't get it to do what I invisioned in my head.... The poop head picked up my camera with a few changes of a couple settings and VIOLA He totally did what I had been trying to do!! UGH talk about frustrating! LOL

That is hysterical! Thanks for the laugh. I hear you, though. A good friend of mine has an OLD rebel and the lens is always dirty but her pix are waaaaaaay better than mine. She's got the eye!

Can you believe I spent 3 (THREE!) hours last night trying to figure out how to get all three of these to work at the same time: setting focus points, setting aperture in Manual mode and auto-focus? I had been playing with the custom settings and flipped a few things that conflicted and totally freaked me out. Also updated the firmware and was afraid I was going to lose my camera to the repair shop over the holiday weekend!

I'll bet your cousin would have figured it out in about 30 seconds!!!

Good job raysgal! I know what you mean about needing to try more in som more light. My mom has a fountain in her backyard that will be on for Thanksgiving tomorrow...so I'm going to try some more there (in all of my spare time) LOL!

One more question----this info is all so great from these classes...are you printing yours out? I am (so I don't have to sit and read on the compluter monitor) I think I'm going to put all 12 weeks in a binder along with my pics every week, than I will be able to refer to them and the differences in the settings. I have a photography book that has the same types of examples...but it will be so much easier to understand when I make my own little notebook, because I am the one that actually set the settings and took the pictures.

Ha ha funny you brought up printing..... I just got off the phone with my hubby about 15 minutes ago and begged him to stop and buy some ink for the printer..... Since I'm stuck at home with no car since it snowed, I procrastinated and didn't get the snow tires put on, and my VAN sucks in the snow without them....I can't really take a chance of getting stuck since it is WAY to cold to chance with my daughter out in this weather. 0 degrees is to cold to take chances like that LOL

But I WILL be printing if he stops after work.

Oh, yes, I print them out. I am a through-and-through tree killer and I have THREE printers in my office because running out of ink or not being able to print would kill me!

I put them in a folder for now but will put them in a 3-ring binder. Am encouraging other friends to join and am hoping my DD will want to take my old camera for a spin, too.

I hope you get your ink!

My news ones for repeating the week with the new kids in the class.

Take a look at my first set, then these and you can see the progression in just a few weeks. I won't say these are "good* but I can definitely say they are *better*. The biggest difference was upping the ISO so the camera could go to the higher SS with just inside lighting.

Canon 5D ISO3200 85mm 1/60 sec. @f/9.0



Canon 5D ISO3200 85mm 1/1600 sec. @ f1.8

Mom2S&S-
Those illustrate the lesson so well...but I just LOVE your subject!!! So bright and colorful!!!

I've been practicing what we learned this week and I even shot a few in manual *gasp*!!! Can't believe I am learning so much

Are you girls planning to go ahead to week 3 (so we can all go together)?

YAY! Manual mode! Scary, confusing, and LIBERATING!!!

I'll take a look at week three again . . . go ahead, I want to see what you do!

Thanks for the comments on the photo subject - I left that in the bathroom sink and my husband was quite confused by it the next morning!

Trying to find things with color!!

found it

these ones are SOOC but the typical LR settings once imported. didn't want to go out to the car to get my tripod so I set it on a soap box on a side table. tried several shutter speeds, none too impressive, I probably didn't need to have the water running so fast.


and this was the 2nd part of the lesson going full manual. didn't start this one 'till about 3:30 and it was already dark so I used the dining room lights and set my WB to tungsten (sp?)

I can see the difference in the water shots and the WB one. Eye opening!

yeah i like how you can see the air bubbles in the first one I did.

as for the second group, it's actually she same photo, the first one is just sooc and zeroed in lightroom so it's what i really took. the second one is after editing. the tungsten wb was fairly acurate but needed a little help.

Michelle - it was a WB problem with a TON of work photos I took (houses, for a bunch of neighborhood articles) that took ALL day that sent me here. I totally missed the WB and was shooting in jpeg, and they were all a mess, and really hard to fix, since each one was off, but differently off. Oh, and I blew the sky, blah blah blah.

It cost me so much time and angst, that I've been on a total photography knowledge/consumption/practice/skill-honing rampage for three months.

So, I really really really love how even that subtle of an adjustment can make such a difference, and save a lot of work. But if you were like me, and didn't know squat about how to recover, it was horrible! And expensive - cost me three new cameras, some lenses, a new computer, software, etc. But oh, the liberation and the joy of RAW, LR3 and a calibrated computer.

But, now I'm starting to get a clue and it's exhilarating!

I really like how you're adding labels on the actual photos that you're posting here. It will certainly help some of the folks that are new to this hobby/skills/profession start to "see" those subtle differences, and start to appreciate the astonishing work that shows up here sometimes.

YAY!!!!
