This week our photography class focused on shutter speed. I'm actually pretty proud of myself because I shot 2 of the 5 photos for the class using completely manual settings. They may not be spectacular, but I'm especially proud that I was able to adjust the shutter speed and ISO so that the lighting wasn't too bad.
Here are all my shots SOOC (with the exception of the "watermark").
f5, 1/320, ISO 3200 (Shot completely manually)
f5, 1/10, ISO 100 (Shot completely manually)
Daylight action taken at slow shutter speed to show motion
Low light action taken at slow shutter speed to show motion
I actually shot this at night on a tripod with a 15 second exposure for the shutter speed.
"Shoot Where You Are"
f4.5, 1/200, ISO 3200 (Shot completely manually)
I spent more time this week taking pictures in my bathrooms than ever before, trying to catch drops of water on "film" (How do you change that saying for digital cameras? "On memory card???" Doesn't have the same ring to it.) and adjusting my camera settings so that the lighting wasn't too dark. All in the name of photography!
