September -Long exposure

Long exposure (Must be at least a 10 seconds exposure)

Long-exposure , time-exposure, or slow-shutter photography involves using a long-duration shutter speed to sharply capture the stationary elements of images while blurring, smearing, or obscuring the moving elements. Long-exposure photography captures one element that conventional photography does not: an extended period of time. The paths of bright moving objects become clearly visible. Clouds form broad bands, vehicle lights draw bright streaks, stars leave trails in the sky, and water waves appear smooth. Only bright objects leave visible trails, whereas dark objects usually disappear. Boats in long exposures disappear during daytime, but draw bright trails from their lights at night.

OCTOBER – RGB (Red, Green, Blue – the 3 primary colours)

DEFINITION

RGB (red, green, and blue) refers to a system for representing the colors to be used on a computer display. Red, green, and blue can be combined in various proportions to obtain any color in the visible spectrum.

The next time you’re out and about with your camera, hunt down your favourite color and methodically create your photographs around it.

NOVEMBER – ICE CREAM

DEFINITION

While photographing ice cream might seem simple at first thought, the reality is a little different. A food with many color variations that can make mixing and matching and good light and depth capturing tricky for the photographer, it also has the challenging habit of melting if you’re not fast enough!
