10:10 Photography – Abstract
Photography has the power to isolate a fragment of a composition and turn it into art and to freeze shapes and images to take on new meaning far different from their original intent.
The goal of today’s lesson is to build confidence and familiarity with your new camera, while also practicing framing shots that isolate an element or color to create an interesting abstract.
The easiest approach to abstract photography is the close up shot. Close-ups remove the context of what is in the viewfinder as well as emphasizes the texture and graphic elements.
Focal Length is also important.
Focal Length is the space from the camera sensor to the lens. This measurement is measured in millimeters.
- Wide Lens – 35mm
- Normal Lens – 50mm
- Telephoto Lens – 75-300mm
Using the zoom feature on your camera will adjust the focal length
Activity, we’ll head out as a group to the front courtyard. Find and shoot at least 12 subjects that will serve as your abstracts. Look at different angles. To get 12 good shots you might need to take 60.
Don’t worry, you won’t run out of film!
Shoot in Automatic mode and use Manual Focus
Try to get in focus shots!
11:00 Abstract Photography & Managing Media with Adobe Bridge
This morning we’ll look at Adobe Bridge. Specifically:
- How Bridge works with your hard drive
- Sorting, viewing, previewing, rating, ranking
- What files bridge can see
- Importing images from SD card
- Batch processing (renaming, touch up, resizing)
- I’ve got some practice files are located in the public folders. Make a copy of the folder and paste on your desktop.
Assignment: When we return to the classroom, select your favorite 5 photographs. Place each image on a Google Slide (5 slides total). Record the meta data somewhere on each slide (shutter speed, f/stop, focal distance). If you need to improve a photo, feel free to take to your favorite image editing program or use Adobe Bridge. Upload slideshow to the Google Classroom dropbox.
