This week and last we've been learning Digital procedures in Class; We've been practicing finding files, opening and saving, using flash drives, creating folders, changing file formats between JPG and PhotoShop, digital editing including cropping, straightening, creating a new adjustment layer for curves and levels. You were required to scan your recent Pinhole camera photo, and your best work from Quarter 3 (at least one) - edit it and save it to both your folder in the schools system and copy the JPGs to the flashdrive renaming all photos with your name and a word that describes it (so that the teacher can access your work from the flash drive).
We will also begin a technique in Photography called Light writing or Light Painting in class. You are required to participate, create and invent ways to make these long exposure photographs.
You will receive one last roll of film for Quarter 4: Required Assignments: 1 (One) Roll Developed using themes; submitted for a grade 2 prints from Film (themes: "Positive message" and "Beauty") due dates Friday May 4th, Fri.

4-27 Notes followed by a demonstration of light writing using a 10 second exposure: Shutter priority mode is indicated as “TV” or “S” on your camera's dial. ... YOU pick the speed (time), and the camera will determine an aperture that works with the settings you've identified in order to get a good exposure. That means that shutter priority mode is a semi-automatic mode - you and the camera work together to get the right exposure!!!! Our DSLR can be set up to 30 seconds long using the Main Dial.
