What we Have Learned in Photo 1 By Evan boner and Roxana herrera

During our time in Photo 1, we learned a lot of things about photography and how to do it. So today we will be presenting to you what we have learned in photo since the beginning of the year!

Sorry about that!
Story Board

We used a polaroid camera to create a story using 5 pictures. We decided to create a story about a new kid who gets made fun of by the "cool" kids and then meets a girl who is just like him. 100 emoji. This was one of our favorite projects.

Dry Mount

Dry mounting is used to present photos in a more formal manner. In the photos above, Roxana Herrera plugs in the tacking iron to paste a photo to the black board and finally secure it in the oven.

3-Point Lighting Picture example. (Model Dutch Lennon)

3-Point Lighting is used to perfect lighting settings for head shots. Normally used with the model holding a white board to reflect more light into their face. There two lights in front of the model and one in back.

Working the aperture, this is to choose the right setting
How to fix up the shutter speed
Pinhole camera.

Pinhole camera is an old style of creating a photo using a shoebox, pringle can, soda can, ect. as a camera. You most poke a hole the box and cut out a piece of aluminum and poke a hole in that as well. Then you line up the holes together and duct tape that shit on their you feel me son.

Film processing

For black and white film processing, their are many steps that you need to follow. The first steps have to deal with the unloading your film out of the camera into the canister. To do that you need to be in the pitch black changing room.

Changing room with light

This isn't a room where you change your clothes. You change film in this room. Xd rawr~~~~~~;D.

This is the cylinder you must use to pour your chemicals into the canister to process the film
For the chemicals, you must mix water and D76 (developer) together in 10ml. Then pour it in the canister and keep it in their for 6-9 minutes depending on temp. While you are doing that you must agitate the canister every minute. After that you pour it out and wash it out with 10ml of water for 30 seconds. Then you pour 10ml of Fixer (death juice) for 5 minutes, again agitating the canister every minute. After that you pour the fixer in the fixer jug and then put the film reel in the washing machine. After the film in the washing machine for about 3 minutes, you put it into photo flu for 30 and then take it out and let it drip back into the photo flu and then dry in thy dryer.

Thy Enlargers are used to create the photo using the light reflecting from the film negatives.

The process of developing a photo. First we put the photo in developer to develop the photo for 90 seconds. Second, we put paper in the fixer for 30 seconds. Then we put the photo in fixer for 5 minutes. Fourth step in to let the photo rinse in water. After that we dry off the photo with a squeegee and finally we put the photo through the dryer. DONE!

These are contrast filters that we are able to place inside enlargers in order to achieve the best contrast in our photos.

This is a contact sheet. Contact sheets are used to see which photos turned out the best.

This is a contact sheet after development.

This is the process of creating a photogram. In order to make a photogram, you need photo paper, and object or more. What happens with this is light reflects on the photo paper with the object on it, the object creates a shadow light reflect on the paper creating a dreamy light image. Super Rad! Am I right?

These are some examples of photograms. Multiple objects can be used, even a Paris keychain!

Above, Ari Bone (awesome guy btw you'd love him) is seen holding burn and dodge tools. Burn and Dodge tools are used to lighten or darken areas of an image.
Aperture: The photo on the left is a deep depth of the field (focus) and the photo to right is a shallow depth of the field (blurry background)
Last we have to show you the functions of shutter speed. When you have a slow shutter speed (1/250, 1/500) you get a photo that looks like the one to the left, blurry. When you have a fast shutter speed (1/30, 1/15) you get a still frozen motion, like ari doing a clap in mid air while doing a push up. Which he did about 50 those actually no biggie.
