The Basics of Digital Photography
Situational Problems

 

We now understand more about shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. Remember that when taking a photo that all three of these elements are involved together to be able to produce the results that you want. 

 

Lets test what we know from class.

 

1.You are taking a picture inside of our classroom and the image keeps turning out underexposed (black), your aperture is set to the lowest possible, F/3.5, and the shutter speed is set at 1/60. What can you do to make the photo exposed properly?

 

2. If you are trying to take a picture of a friend posing, what would be the lowest you would want the shutter speed to be at?

 

3. You are taking a picture outside on a cloudy day (lots of sunlight) and your shutter speed is set to 1/200 and your aperture is set at F/8. For some reason the picture is coming out with weird red, blue, and green dots all over the image. 

 

First, what are these dots called?

 

Second, how can we fix the picture so that no dots are present and the picture is as clear as possible?
