Bulb Photography

f/ 22.0
Shutter Speed: 12.0
ISO 400

f/ 22.0
Shutter Speed: 6/7
ISO: 400

For bulb photography a dark background and a mobile source of light was needed. The dark background was necessary so that the person controlling the light was not visible but the light was. I set my camera's shutter speed to bulb. This was done to capture all of the drawing regardless of how long it took. As you can see the shutter speed on the first photo is longer than the other because it consists of more details. With this also came a need to use a tripod. The longer the shutter speed became the more prone the camera was to movement.

Light Box Use

With the light box I learned that different colors are enhanced by other colors in their background. For example a black subject will pop out over a white background. For my pictures I found out that silver and gold looked best over blue and red. As you can see the colors are emphasized. Furthermore contrasts make good pictures too. Also make sure you have a lot of light in order to prevent shadows and lose quality.

More Than Meets the Eyes

F/ 5.6
Shutter Speed: 1/15
ISO: 720

When taking this kind of picture there are many factors you must mind. First you have to make sure that your light source is the only light source in the room. Also make sure the person is facing the light source and that you are close to them so that you are able to capture the image. For this photo my camera was set to portrait mode to focus on her eye. As you can see the background is blurred.

Reflection is a method of photography that is used to enhance the photo in many ways. In the case of this picture reflection adds a unique and peculiar feeling to the picture. It makes it look as though there is more than one item in a circle when in reality its only one item and two mirrors. The only thing I think is wrong with this picture is how dirty the scene is.
