Capturing Action And Motion In Photography

When capturing motion In Photography the shutter speed plays a key role. For the focus point in your image the faster your shutter speed, the shaper your focus point will be on your subject. When the shutter speed is slower, it will blur the moving subject.

Depth Of Field Explained

Depth of field In Photography is the distance in a photo and its focus point. Shallow in depth of field is the focus point of a photo well the background is blurred. Good depth of field is the depth and length of a photo that is visual and clear with no blur. Some images appear to be sharp well some are meant to be captured out of focus. The closer the lens is on its subject the deeper the background. The three important things in depth of field when capturing your image is the aperture, the focus length and distance from the subject.

Alternative Camera Angles

I like how this photo of the elephant was taken from a side angle facing slightly up when shot with the camera. And how the elephant is the main subject and then there’s the nature as its background. I think this image was meant to be in black and white, it looks really good. lol I don’t know why but photos that are taken in black in white evoke this feeling of sadness in me.

Hey so here is my all about me collage, I don’t even know where to start. So for the background on the right which is baby blue is my favorite color. My life is pretty boring if you ask me. I pretty much have the same routine which is eat, train, study, shower, then I go to work then sleep. I start my morning everyday with a cup of coffee, I most definitely am a coffee addict. Lets just say it all started sophomore year when I was studying for my finals and I was up all night. And decided for the first time to have a cup or 2 so that I could stay awake. And ever since then I’ve been hooked on it. Don’t care for breakfast, I’m never really hungry in the morning. I usually will force myself to eat. On the left side you got the night sky lit up with the moon and stars. I added that as my second background because I consider myself a night person. I sometimes take walks at night, and you know it just brings me peace and allows me to clear my mind and get a deep breather. At the bottom there is a sunflower which is my favorite flower, because it reminds me of my favorite person. Their name started with Dan so I used to call them my Dandelion. Here are my go to streaming services that I watch on my free time tiktok, netflix and youtube. But we also have a firestick so I would usually stream everything on that since we have access to all of the latest movies in the theaters and all the shows. Honestly I can be on tiktok for hours and not even realize, it can be so intriguing, like it keeps me entertained. Also it can be educating, I’ve learned a thing or 2 from tiktok. I don’t really watch Netflix as much as I used to, favorite movie genres are horror and romance. Here are 3 of my favorite shows that I have actually finished. Vampire Diaries, Money Heist, All American, and You. Okay I lied that was 4 oh well. There is a few other shows I have watched but got bored of half way and just stopped watching them. But I don’t watch Tv as often anymore, I feel like it’s a waste of time and I’d rather be doing something else and staying productive. I also enjoy reading, but lately I have not been reading as much as I would like to. The dude on the left is my Celeb crush who goes my Daddy Choppa. And then there is Doja Cat who is currently one of my favorite Artist at the time. Her music lately has just been hitting different. I didn’t add my favorite band but they go by The Neighborhood, I’m kind of obsessed with them. My favorite holiday would have to be Christmas, well at least it used to be. I mean who doesn’t like the gifts and tamales and also the bomb homemade cookies my grandmother be making. I think now, well I would not say favorite but a holiday I really enjoy is thanksgiving. Because I love food, and love to eat. Thanksgiving is just full of delicious food. And that’s the only day that I make an acceptation for ham, because I don’t like it, don’t care for it, and I’ve never been a fan. But it be the left overs that be the best. Especially with the left over turkey and these sandwiches we would make with Jack cheese, sourdough, Dijon mustard and lettuce. mm so good. My favorite shoes would definitely have to be the Jordan 11’s, and then there’s vans. Vans are pretty basic but they are affordable and can go well with every fit. And you can never really go wrong with a black pair of vans. Some of my favorite go to fast food’s would be Burgers, Chicken strips, and Chile cheese fries. From IN-N-Out, Canes and Chris’s burgers which is my all time favorite. I love Chris’s but their so far, but the drive is so worth it. My regular order be Chile cheese fries with a chocolate shake. 10/10 would definitely recommend it to your mothers, cousins, and aunties. Its just uhh to die for. If your a chilies cheese fries lover like myself. I’m considering working there just to get their Chile recipe. I don’t go to Starbucks often but my go to drink when I would go would be an Oreo Frappuccino which is also my favorite ice cream, shake, yogurt. Honestly any dessert that includes Oreos, I love, even the Oreo ice cream cakes, yes. love love love it. I recently tried this caramel crunch Frappuccino from Starbucks that was actually really good, if you have not tried it I would suggest that you do. My favorite candy bar would have to be a milky way, but it used to be snickers, I would say there pretty similar though. But milky way’s for the win any day. My second favorite which I did not add is KitKat. My favorite chips are lemon hot Cheetos, I’ll at times add lime juice or eat them with bean dip which is so good even with Doritos. Definitely a favorite fatty snack. As far as the future goals I’m still indecisive on a career. I’ve thought about maybe going towards the real estate field and being an Agent or maybe going towards the medical field to become a CRNA. But we’ll see. I would like to travel the world, In the top middle of my image there is Paris, which is my dream vacation. My dream car, that I will be getting one day is a Chevrolet corvette. I just be into sporty cars. My first car will probably be a Chevrolet Camaro or a dodge, used of course but I heard Camaro’s are more affordable so I might just go with that, I would like to invest into real estate later on and eventually own my own real estate. Dream pet would be a Pomeranian they are just so fluffy and adorable. My favorite amusement park would have to be six flags. I’m afraid of heights, but I went to six flags once with my cousins and never thought in a million years that i would be so thrilled by the roller coasters and actually ended up enjoying it and having the time of my life. When I got on my first coaster it scared the crap out of me and then I realized that aye this is not so bad after all. But there is one ride I will never be able to do which I believe goes by the drop of doom, yeah no, never. My lucky number is 8 there is just something about that number. And I don’t know if this is a sign or is supposed to mean something but I am always seeing the time 11:11. I like pool, I enjoy playing it, grew up playing it because we always had a pool table. It is definitely the game I play most on Imessage. And then you got my phone and zodiac sign. I use my phone for literally everything, fun fact I didn’t get my first phone till sophomore year, so if you asked if I could live without it then the answer is yes. I’m a Virgo, but I’m not really into that astrological stuff. So I don’t really know much about my sign nor will I let it define me as an individual. And then lastly you got the heart on lock, because I am saving myself for a special somebody who I believe is my soulmate. You know a one in a lifetime kind of love, one that you don’t find too often. I did not believe in love till I met this person. Ill forever be grateful for them, They are just a pure soul, they not only saved me but changed my life . We decided it was best for the meantime to part our ways so that we could focus on ourselves since we still have some maturing to do. But life will bring us back together when the time is right, if we are truly meant for one another. But yeah my heart is theirs, that’s my 4lifer.

This is my example of surrealism because as you can see in this image it is full of fantasy and unusual things that you would typically not see in real life.

This image shows surrealism because it shows a woman’s face that is made out to be a landscape.

Tips For Better Composition

Composition is just simply a way to expose the key elements and subjects in a photo. The three main goals for composition is to draw attention to the main subject, to lead the viewers eye into and around the image and lastly, to eliminate distracting parts of the scene.

The first rule for composition is to include a focal point. This means to give your photo meaning and it offers the viewers a place for their eye to rest. An example for this is by asking yourself, what is the main point of the photo? What’s going to catch the eye? This is very important if you want a composition photo.

The second rule to composition is to ask yourself where you position the main elements in the scene. It will make it look balanced. It draws our eyes into the main point so you have to keep that in mind.

Another very important thing about composition is to balance the image diagonally. If you have your main element in a corner that isn’t going to be the first part people see and it won’t be a composition photo. It has to be balanced so it can catch the eye.

This reason for better composition is also very important. Shoot from a lower angle! It helps simplify the composition and it gives a unique viewpoint that most people don’t see. It’ll make the photo look more good.

Include Foreground Interest! it adds interest and ideas. It helps the photo give more depth, helping to lead the eye from the front to the back of the photo. It helps include more objects you want in the photo and it makes everything fit in.

Use Leading Lines! It helps lead the eye into the image. Including lines towards the main subject usually works better if they run diagonally rather than horizontally or vertically.

This one is another important one that every image should have. Fill The Frame! Your image will lack impact if the main subject does not stand out. Moving closer to your subjects draws out all the others ones so the eye can draw attention to the main purpose.

Leave Space For Movement. It is important to shoot a scene where if the subject is moving, leave enough space inside the frame so the eye to follow the movement. It works best.

Frame Your Subject… This is important because it involves objects in the foreground of a scene to create a frame around the main subject. As I said before. If there is something like doorways around the frame. It creates a perfect frame. It helps isolate the main purpose.

Break The Rules! Even if composition can prove useful, you shouldn’t let it involve around your creativity and how you picture it.
