6 Minimal Depth of Field

"Using Depth of field" - Projects 6 and 7: Photograph anything using minimum and maximum depth of field. The simplest was to accomplish getting a very shallow depth of field is open up the aperture on your lens e.g. set it to F 2.8 or smallest # f-stop. Try portraits, flowers, insects etc. Play with the DOF by minimizing and maximizing it to see the difference that f-stop selection can make in your images. If you need an example you can look at my flower photographs on the site, they show what a nice soft blurr minimal dof can give your images. If you already have such images upload it to the projects section if you wish to share and tell us a little about what you were trying to accomplish and whether or not you think it can be improved by doing something differently.

5 Simulate Daylight

A show of humanity (1) Photograph a person you know using only window light (2) Photograph the same person using window light + a large white reflector (3) Photograph the same person using window light + a reflector + flash (vary the settings of the flash so you can see the differences it makes in the final image) (4) Photograph the same person using only flash and simulate window light (this one's the tough one). Shoot the setup for each and note the settings so you can repeat exactly what you did at a later date with another person. The most important part of this project is to portray someone as they really are, not as you posed them to be. Let the person really be themselves and let their personality shine through. This will only happen if the person is comfortable with the photographer, who must be intimately comfortable with his/her technique. Use the same film for all the images, and if possible shoot it with slide film to make sure you see the differences in each type of lighting.

4 Fall Color

This is the easy one, go shoot some gorgeous fall scenery with a twist. Abstracts, leaves, textures, etc. Shooting boring images will be punished by replacing all your Velvia with Seattle Film Works film. Don't forget to use your white reflector, they do wonders for fall color closeups (hint).

3 The Intimate Portrait

Since we all at one point or another need to take pictures of friends and family. I would like everyone to take a portrait of a person that conveys something about their character. It may be a simple studio type shot or a grander environmental portrait. Attempt to form a real connection with your subject and photograph it better than anyone has done before. This is not a street candid of someone you don't know. This is you exploring a relationship with someone you do know and thus allowing you to connect with that person using a camera. Use any medium you think will fit the person and task at hand. If you need help with studio lighting or metering there will be a quickie cheat sheet FAQ up in a few days so you can attempt an indoor portrait. I do like to emphasize that an environmental portrait may make your task easier than learning studio lighting in a hurry.

2 The Creative Flower

It's time to celebrate summer and create an interesting series of flower images. The goal of this project is to approach a common subject like flowers and to bring out something unique. If you've seen the image that you are about to shoot in a magazine or book before don't shoot it, do something totally you and just go wild with your imagination. Use black & white or color. Don't be afraid to violate the standard rules of photography.

1 Abstracts

This was our first project and while it was originally "The Black and White Abstract" since so many people have decided to submit color images over the years we have made it a general abstract project. Both color and black and whiteabstracts may be submitted. The following was the original description of the project. Since this project has now been changed to both color and B/W, please try to at least maintain the basic theme as it was originally posted showing the fine tonal variations be they in color or black and white. Original Project: "Photograph the beauty in found or manmade objects. This project will explore the tones and textures of the object or a group of objects. Explore the relationship of tones without color and attempt to capture a new perspective."
