Yearbook Photography Things you should probably know if you don’t. And some math! • Shutter – around ¼ - 1/4000. the bigger the number underneath 1, the faster the shutter, the less light you’re letting in, the bigger the aperture needs to be • Aperture – around 2 - 20. the bigger the number (ex. F16), the smaller the aperture, the less light you’re letting in, the slower the shutter speed needs to be. Aperture also affects depth of field. • Ex. If the F stop is 16, what should the shutter speed be? What are all these buttons?!?!?!? There’s a lot! Now you know HOW to take a picture. BUT what makes a good photo?????? Lighting Composition Angle Subject Colors Taking Photos in Different Lighting Lighting creates moods If an image is too light or dark, it will look unappealing to the viewer Watch where you have shadows Use a stable platform (ex. tripod)- especially at night and in gym Decide where you will be taking your shots, what you have, and what you might need Take a few “practice” shots to see how they turn out before actually taking your pictures Adjust settings to fit light in environment If dark= higher ISO Rule of Thirds • Remember this! • Super duper important principle of photography • Basis for well balanced and interesting shots • Two horizontal lines and two vertical lines that cut an image into 9 equal parts • The most important element of the picture is placed where the lines intersect • The main element of the photo should not be dead center Angle Good pics = interesting angles Boring = straight on Crouch down, jump really high, move to the sides -> === don’t stand still!!! Don’t stand near other photographers Candid vs. Staged Photos Candid photo– an unposed photograph Subject is unaware that their picture is being taken Ex. An action shot of a basketball player Staged photo– a posed photograph Subject is aware that their picture is being taken Ex. Family portrait A Good Yearbook Photo… Takes into account the rule of thirds Does not have its subject dead center Makes sure the lighting is appropriate Is not blurry and/or too bright or too dark Is taken from different angles Has an interesting subject Looks good!! Additional Tips • Take as many pictures as you can (the more pictures you take the better chance you have of getting a good one) • MAKE SURE your camera is fully charged before going to an event • Take pictures from different angles • Take vertical pictures, too, not just horizontal ones • Don’t be the only photographer at an event • Anyone can be a good photographer if they practice • Its the photographer that takes a good picture, not the camera (expensive cameras don’t always take the best pictures) • Have fun! Or not, I don’t care as long as you take good pictures! Whatever floats your boat!
