Lifting Weights

Below is a photograph of my classmate, William, who is “painting” with a flashlight. Using a separate flash from my handheld camera “took another picture” to give the appearance of multiple arms, or that he’s lifting weights.

The ISO was 100, the aperture was 8.0 and the shutter speed was 10 seconds.

William volunteered as a subject. If I could do anything to improve the photograph, I would try to keep a steadier hand of use a tripod when shooting to avoid the shaky appearance. Do You Even Lift?.jpg

Dead Eyes

The photograph below is of my classmate, William, who “painted” with a flashlight. It was taken in my photography classroom (with the lights off).

The ISO was 100, the aperture was 8.0, and the shutter speed was 10 seconds. William volunteered. If I could do anything to make the photo better, I would’ve tried to use better lighting on his face. Dead Eyes.jpg

Speed Racer

This is a photograph of a car “speeding” on the street. It was taken on school grounds, and the road was just across the street. The ISO was 100, the aperture was 22.0 and the shutter speed was 1/15.

The subject was chosen because I was taught that shutter speed can manipulate and give the illusion of something that’s not actually happening (like the speeding car). If I could do anything to improve the photograph, I would’ve zoomed in more on the road rather than the uninteresting dirt next to it.Speeding Car.jpg

Bursting Your Bubble

This is a photograph of my photography classmate popping a water balloon, taken at my school.

The ISO was 400, the aperture was 5.6 and the shutter speed was 1/3200. The subject volunteered. If I could change anything to make the photograph better, I would have tried to be quicker in capturing the water balloon being punctured by the needle.  Boy popping water balloon.jpg

Water Balloon Fun

Mid-burst of two water balloons.

This is a photograph of my two classmates bursting water balloons with a needle. It was taken at my school.

The ISO was 400, the Aperture was 5.6 and my shutter speed was 1/600.

I didn’t necessarily choose the subjects; they volunteered. If I could change anything to present a better photograph, I would’ve chosen a different angle without any distracting buildings in the background.
