Shooting Tips!

Good morning, everyone!  While I was sitting at the breakfast table, drinking my tea this morning, I was thinking about you all shooting your first assignment this weekend.  I thought that it might be helpful if I gave you a series of tips and things to remember when you are shooting this weekend.  For those of you using your own cameras, these are also VERY important as well!  I’ve divided my advice into two sections:  Preperation before you start shooting, and then things to keep in mind while you are shooting.  I hope these things help:

Ordinary to Extraordinary Project

Our first assignment is called “Ordinary to Extraordinary.” I call it that because I think that actually summarizes exactly what photography is actually all about. Remember – just about everything in teh world has been photographed before, so to make an original photograph, you need to change how you photograph it.  This assignment will hopefully get that process started.

Here is the handout that I gave in class today:

And here are some examples that will hopefully help you along the way!

Handouts from the First Week

Here are just digital copies of the handouts from the last couple of days.  The first one is the Syllabus, and the second one is the DSLR loan letter.  The loan letter is only a concern for you if you need to borrow a camera from Penfield, and remember that you need to have it signed and returned by Monday morning, so please remember to do that!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

 

Overview of Photography Class

As we are having our introductory discussions about Photography and what it is, I thought it would be a good idea to put a few examples of what students have done in the past on the website.  I’m not goinjg to tell you what the assignment was, or anything like that – it’s just a bunch of beatiful pictures.

Welcome!

Welcome to the Digital Photography Class blog.  This blog will be where I will be posting handout, assignment information, as well as recordings of any demonstrations that I do in class.  It will be a very important resource for you during the class, and you will want to visit regularly.

On the right, you will see a link that says “Subscribe to This Blog.”   I want you to enter your email address so that the blog will automatically send you a notification whenever something important is posted.  Don’t worry too much – it won’t be emailing you every day.  🙂

Once you enter your email address on that page, then go to your email and find an email from my website (it may be in your junk mail folder), and in that email there will be a link.  Click on that link to confirm the subscription.  This is basically just verifying that you are a real person, not a spam program.
