Camera Exposure

Exposure determines how light or dark an image will appear. it is also the amount of light per unit area, reaching a photographic film or electronic image sensor, as determined by shutter speed, lens aperture and scene luminance.


The ISO determines how sensitive the camera is to incoming light. It is similar to shutter speed it also it also correlates 1:1 because of the exposure increases and decreases.


The aperture is a small set of blades in the lens that controls how much light will enter the camera. For example if you shoot with the aperture open more light is allowed into the camera.

This a good example because they have focused just on the bird. And they have done this by using a large aperture.

Shutter speed

The shutter speed is a curtain in the camera that quickly rolls over the image sensor. It allows light to shine into the image sensor for a fraction of a second.

For this image you would use a fast shutter speed. You would have to do this because you can capture the fast moving images without them getting blurry.

The exposure triangle

The exposure triangle is a way of associating the three variables that determine the exposure of a photograph: aperture shutter speed and ISO.

You must be able to balance all three of these to achieve a desired result, an adjustment of one requiring adjustments of at least one of the others.


In photography composition is the arrangement of visual elements as a distinct the subject.

Rule of thirds

The rule of thirds involves mentally dividing up your image using two horizontal lines and two vertical lines.

The rule of thirds doesn't apply in every situation and sometimes breaking it results in more eye-catching photos.


Symmetry is when an object has reflection. symmetry splits the image into two images. symmetry splits an image in half, this is because both sides of the image are the same.

This is a good example because the building looks the same on each side.


Framing is a technique of drawing attention to the main part of the image by blocking the other parts of the photo out.

this is a good example because the focus of the image is on the tower blocking of the other objects.

Leading Lines

Leading lines are one of the most effective tools for photographers. They are used to viewers to a specific part of the frame.

This image shows the handles on the steps line up well.

My Name project

I went around the college and started taking photos of objects that could look like letters in my name.

My easter project

For my easter project I had to go out in the night and take 10 photos of the night sky. I went outside and started taking photos in my street using my camera.
This is a photo that I took inspiration from for my project.


For this project I was to practice different skills in lighting. I was given an egg to practice different techniques because its a round object so it shows shade well. I did different angles when doing this to show that I have practise all techniques that i was asked to do.
