EXPOSING YOUR PHOTO Make sure to expose your image so that it is well balanced from lights to darks. Use your light meter, adjusting the shutter speed and aperture to make sure the line is between the + and - signs. Creating images that have an exposure against norms is a good way to create attention (Figure 2).

FOCAL LENGTH Close focal length shots can create interesting images, making a whole new world or landscape amongst the macro subject matter. Decide if your subject would be more interesting close up or as a whole. This decision can determine the difference between a good and great photograph.

The following photos are of human origin, yet create landscapes themselves.

PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY When taking portraits one must be aware of the surroundings. The background can over power the person you are taking a photo of. You need to compensate for the background if it’s in the studio or outdoors.

Figures 1-5 are portraits featuring natural light, Figures 6-9 are portraits using studio light
