Digital Imaging

Motion & Depth

This week as part of my digital imaging class, we focused on practicing shots including depth and motion. I’ve posted four photos to showcase what i have practiced.



I was doing a portrait shoot for a YouTuber when I decided to do this shot. I had my camera settings on an F-stop of 5.6 with a shutter speed of 1/50 and a ISO of 200.  I had a speed-light over to my left with a LED  light shining continuously in his face. Once I took the photo, I took it into Photoshop to darken the image, add more contrast, and put on a black and white filter.

One morning the earth decided to randomly open up it’s salt shaker and snow all over our college campus. I thought maybe this would be a good time to head over to the gardens and get a few shots. I was behind a tree when i took this shot.  I had a F-stop of 5.6 with a shutter speed of 1/200.  The ISO was 400. After I took the picture, I went into Photoshop and tried the best I could to brighten the image. I added just a little of cold temperature and finally had my photo.


This was the best I could accomplish for a freeze motion capture. At this point the snow was falling down quickly. I had my shutter speed at 1/200 with an aperture of 5.6. My ISO was at 800. This was the best shot I took with the snow flakes frozen in falling motion.

Motion blur was by far the hardest concept for me. I decided to keep it simple and see if I could snag a photo of  a car passing by.  I had an F-stop of 11 and a shutter speed of 1/200. The ISO was at 200. I took the photo into photoshop and darkened the image so it wasn’t too bright.
