Monday 10/26/20: Depth of Field
Term 2 is in full effect! Hope ya’ll ready!
Click on the cute little character below…
10/26 Warm up:
Take a look at these photos. What differences do you notice in these photos? How do these differences change the photo?
Time to “Play” with Depth of Field!
Student Instructions: Select the Aperture Priority (Av) mode on the camera simulator. Then “take” a photo with each of the seven f-stop values provided: 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16, 22.
When you take each photo, you should click the X to close the image and it will get saved to the “Your Shots” gallery for you to view when you’re done.
After you captured a photo with each of the aperture f-stops, answer the following questions in your notebook (or typed in a Word document). Turn into the assignment on Teams: “Playing with Depth of Field”.
- How do the f-stop values (aperture numbers) affect the image you captured?
- What do you think are some reasons for wanting to blur out the background in a photo (shallow depth of field)?
- What do you think are some reasons for wanting to keep the whole scene in focus (wide depth of field)?
- What are some reasons for wanting something in the middle (not totally blurred out but not totally in focus)?
