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
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
 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!
