    Exercise 1.3 Line

    Brief Part 1: Take a number of shots using lines to create a sense of depth. Shooting with a wide- angle lens (zooming out) strengthens a diagonal line by giving it more length within the frame. The effect is dramatically accentuated if you choose a viewpoint close to the line. For this exercise I left the camera in auto mode as per the earlier exercises. This was frustrating as I wanted to control elements that I found auto mode handled differently than I intended. However it did mean I was focused on looking for lines rather than thinking about settings which seems to be the goal of these Part 1…

    Exercise 1.1 The Instrument

    By photographing on a day with fast moving clouds in a frame largely filed with sky, I had predicted that the exposures would show big differences on the histograms from the changing light. I was surprised at how similar they actually remained. I can see now that with my camera set to auto, the shutter speed was automatically adjusted to compensate, resulting in minimal – yet clear – differences on the histogram. The ISO and aperture interestingly remained mostly the same. I repeated this exercise by taking a series of 3-4 images a few seconds apart, at intervals of 5-10 minutes apart. I had expected that comparing the histograms from…
