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”.

  1. How do the f-stop values (aperture numbers) affect the image you captured?
  2. What do you think are some reasons for wanting to blur out the background in a photo (shallow depth of field)?
  3. What do you think are some reasons for wanting to keep the whole scene in focus (wide depth of field)?
  4. What are some reasons for wanting something in the middle (not totally blurred out but not totally in focus)?
