Project 2 - Exposure Checklist

Take a series of photos.... Make sure to follow the steps below. For the content, I want you to consider documenting your "home" or something like the 100 yard radius around your current home base.  Choose carefully and think creatively, as you have to stick to some rules here.

1. Everything in the picture in focus (deep depth of field)
2. Sharp focus on the subject, but everything else out of focus (shallow depth of field)
3. Bokeh - In at least one photo, nothing at all should be in focus. It's hard to take a good looking photo where nothing is in focus - be creative!
4. Stop action (fast shutter speed) The main subject should be frozen in time, be creative in finding a solution.  
5. Blurred motion (slow shutter speed) The main subject of at least one photograph should be motion-blurred, either due to movement of the subject or movement of the camera.
6. Long exposure (more than one second, maybe low light)
7. Backlit subject (silhouette)
8.  At least one photo must be poorly exposed. That is, most of the image should be either very close to black (underexposed) or close to flat white due to oversaturation (overexposed)

at least 8 images due Thursday September 7th, beginning of class
