Depth of field l.jpg

Depth of Field

The distance in front of and beyond your subject that appears in focus


2 ways to control depth of field l.jpg

2 Ways to Control Depth of Field

  • Aperture(how big the “light pipe” is)

  • Focal Length(how far you’re zoomed in)

Low light help iso film speed l.jpg

Low-light help: ISO (“Film” Speed)

*Doubling the ISO cuts the shutter speed in half*

ISO: 100

Shutter Spd: 1/2 sec.

ISO: 3200

Shutter Spd: 1/64 sec.


One more helper flash l.jpg

One more helper—Flash

Illuminates a scene for between 1/2000 and 1/30,000th of a second


Activity panning and the illusion of speed l.jpg

Activity: “Panning” and the illusion of speed

Trisha is going to scoot across the room. Your job is to take a picture where she appears in sharp focus, yet the background is blurry.

Camera SettingsPreset: Try Landscape or Slow ShutterISO: 50 or 100Flash: OFF


Activity stopping motion with flash l.jpg

Activity: Stopping Motion with Flash

Camera Settings and Technique
