Free Video: What Camera Mode Should I Use?

Your Digital SLR camera has 4 different advanced exposure modes. At their heart of hearts they all are designed to do the same thing – capture a properly exposed image – but they all go about it different ways. This video will teach you the strengths and weaknesses of Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and Manual modes and how to use each of them well.

Pictures of the Week | May 5, 2014

Giraffe by Patricia Burk

Giraffe – Photo by IPS Student Patricia Burk for Digital Photography 1. This is an amazing photo! I love so many thing about it: the sharp focus, the great compression from zooming in, the other giraffe in the background, and the contrast between the giraffe’s face and the dark background.

Bracelet Clasp by Jeri Beth Hardy

Bracelet Clasp Macro – photo by IPS student Jeri Beth Hardy [@southernbess] for Digital Photography 1. This shot is full of amazing detail. The way @southernbess turned the clasp so that it was flat to the camera gave her wonderful sharpness even though the depth of field is tiny in a macro image. Nice job of lens flipping!

Feature Friday // Giles Duley: Half man, Half camera

Wow! I just finished watching this awesome  TedTalk by Giles Duley. In light of our new photojournalism class starting I think this presentation speaks loud and clear about an awesome service you can provide as a photographer. It’s so true that the more you make your life about other people and serving them, the more God is able to use you for His glory, because it’s ultimately about Him! 

Our DPJ class has been doing assignments called “Meet a Stranger”. Each week they have as a photo assignment to go out and meet a new person, photograph them and get their story. Sounds scary and cool all at the same time right? Check out their blog posts about meeting strangers in their town.
