2. A Level Photography 2 Modules in the second year ART3 60 % of A2 120 Marks ART4 40% of A2 100 Marks Remember the 2 modules make up 50% of youre A Level 3. What are the differences to last year? -Amount of time you spend with the camera -Greater specialism in a particular medium/concept -The level of Technical skills, marking is harsher -More detailed research, analysis and reflection -The same -The format of the year -Importance of Concept A Level Photography 4. What Equipment do you need? -Your own SD card -Your own Memory stick -Your own DSLR Camera, or quick and prompt bookings of our DSLRcameras -Sketch Book -Scissors and glue -Pens and Notepad A Level Photography 5.

The essay analyses and discusses; 1.Conceptual practice 2.Genre 3.Photographic and lighting technique 4. How it links and influences your idea A grade artist research 1 and 2 tends to be around 2000 words each 20. Visual influences A2 (ART3) at a glance 21. Visual influences A2 (ART3) at a glance 22.

What compositional rule/s has been used here? 25. What lighting technique has been used? 26. What type of shutter speed has been used here? give an example of the length. 27. This image has a shallow ________ of ___________ Secondly ive an example of the aperture setting (F number) which would ensure this happened to this image. 28. You could achieve this tinted blue look on your images by changing your camera to the wrong _____ ______ on purpose. 29. What setting on my camera would I turn to a high level if I wanted to create Noise and Grain on an image? Can you give a digit example? 30. Sports photographers would need to use a ______ lens to ensure they could capture all the action at an event. When using this lens it is advisable to accompany it with a ______ or the image would be _______ 31. If I want everything in my image to be in focus I must use what type of F/stop? This makes the lens open Widely/Narrowly? 32. You have just captured this image. 1.Whats wrong with it? (Photographic language) 2. You need to adjust what, to capture it correctly? 33. I have set my Aperture to F/22 and shot this image, why does it look the way it does? 34. How do we know this image has been taken on a Tripod? 35. The shutter speed has to be quick to avoid motion blur, what else could I adjust on my camera to make sure I get enough light? 36. When taking photographs within the home lit by regular house hold lights it is important to set your white balance to what, to ensure you do not gain an orange tint? 37. Is your camera or lighting condition more important in photography? 38. This images has a shallow depth of field but everything is in focus? How come? 39. 1.Onlystickintechnicallyperfectimagesforyourfinalpieces Rules1a.nounderoroverexposed 1b.Ensureyouraperturesettingreflectsthecorrectdepthoffield 1c.Niceframing/composition 2.Mistakenimagescanbestuckintoshowprocessandworkingsoutbutonlyif youhaveperfectimagesafterwards 3.DiscusswhatyouhadtodotoshutterspeedandI.S.Oasaresultofshootingona particularaperturesetting.(Dontforgettripod)tryandwriteasacommentary,almostaselfreflectiveguide/diary. 4.Alsodiscussframing,composition,portraitgenreobjectivesyouhaveappliedornot? Objective Withinthisreflectiondemonstrateanabilitytoexpressclearunderstandingsoftherelationshipbetween; Aperture,ShutterSpeedandI.S.O 40. I.S.O ApertureShutter Speed 41. I.S.O In traditional (film) photography ISO was the indication of how sensitive a film was to light. The lower the number the lower the sensitivity of the film and the finer the grain in the shots youre taking. 100, 200, 400, 800 42. Today in Digital ISO measures the sensitivity of the image sensor Higher ISO settings are generally used in darker situations to get faster shutter speeds 43. So If the standard I.S.O is 100 when might we want to increase it? Philip Lorca Dicorcia uses high I.S.O 44. 100 ISO 3200 ISO 100 ISO is generally accepted as normal and will give you lovely crisp shots (little noise/grain). 3200/6400 we get a higher sensitivity, more light hits the film. But we also get more grain and noise. 45. Shutter Speed What is a cameras Shutter? 46. Shutter Speed The amount of time that the shutter is open. In digital photography shutter speed is the length of time that your image sensor sees the scene youre attempting to capture. It used to be how long the light hit the film 47. Slow Shutter Speeds S.L.R cameras allow the user the chance to use very slow shutter speeds that are not fractions of seconds but actual seconds (for example 1 second, 10 seconds, 30 seconds etc). These are used in very low light situations, when youre going after a specific effect or look. 48. Quick Shutter Speeds If there is movement in your scene you have the choice of either freezing the movement (so it looks still) or letting the moving object intentionally blur (giving it a sense of movement) 49. Shutter Speed has effects on other things! If we have a fast shutter speed, what will we need to adjust our I.S.O to? higher number (more sensitive to light) or lower (less sensitive to light) 50. Aperture Aperture is how wide the lens' iris opens. The wider it opens the more light gets in. It's exactly the same thing as the iris of your eye which opens more as the light gets darker Its not the speed its how widely it opens 51. Big apertures have smaller numbers, like f/4. Smaller apertures have bigger numbers like f/16. These are fractions Big apertures like f/4 will tend to have just one thing in focus. A smaller aperture like f/16 will tend to have everything in focus. How much is in focus is called depth of field. Which image has a big aperture and which has a small?
