When we went to class, we not only went
over our shutter priority assignment,
but we also did our white balance
assignment and went over it.
Next week is our last class for
So we did 2 assignments in class.
The assignment we had on White Balance
was a great learning tool.
Here are some examples of White Balance;
All camera's have pretty much the same
options. Some might have a couple of
different ones and some have a lot of options.
Check your camera out and see what options
you have by going to your Menu and picking
the option - White Balance. That's were you
will see a list of options like daylight.
Now for our assignment that we went
ahead and did in class, we
first took pictures inside the class room.
We set our dial mode to Shutter Priority
and set the shutter speed to 1/ 60.
ISO on 800 or higher.
We started out setting the WB (white balance)
to daylight and then took the picture.
Then we were to change our WB to
incandescent and fluorescent, taking
a picture each time.
You will be able to see the difference
in the color of the pictures.
This picture had a blue tint to it using the
Incandescent Light option in the WB mode.
This picture has a yellow tint to it.
I like this color. The picture turned out great.
Don't you just love the subject I picked.
We had to find something in the room
to take a picture of and this is what I found.
We now move outside to take pictures.
Manual Mode (Meter in the middle)
ISO 100 to 200
Shutter Speed at 1 /125
We took two pictures in
Incandescent light and sunlight.
Can you see the blue color in the picture?
I love this picture. It turned out great...
Now let me tell you what happen while I was taking
pictures outside. Every time I went to meter in the
middle I kept moving my shutter speed setting.
My pictures kept turning out dark or real light.
To make a long story short,
I was shown how to work my camera.
See were the on/off button is?
There is also a line above where it says ON.
It is shown by the blue arrow.
I have to turn the dial to that and then
turn the big dial right above it (red arrow)
to set my meter in the middle.
By doing this I am changing
my aperture not my shutter speed.
The reason I am telling you this is
because you might be having the same
problems and this will give you something
to check out on your camera.
It just shows you the difference in color
with the two outdoor pictures I took.
Well next week, I will be turning in
my picture poster board.
So I am on a scavenger hunt.
I have to take 15 pictures and print them
out and attach them to the board.
Then I get to stand in front of the class
and talk about my pictures.
It also looks like we have 1 more
assignment that is on our list.
I suppose we will do it in class before
we all stand up and show our Picture board's.
The assignment is over Portraiture.
So I will discuss that with you next week.
Wish me luck standing in front of the class......
Until Next Time,
