Photography workshop

We were introduced to using SLR cameras.  The following hand out has some handy terminology. 

We then practised using the camera using some of our violet objects and experimenting with studio lighting, camera functions and colour filters.  These are the results:

I found this workshop challenging as I have very little experience working with SLR cameras. The strongest photographs were of the objects which had a solid form, especially the Cadburies tin and the balloon. One interesting aspect which came out of this was the colour of the shadow's changed with different coloured filters.  For example the purple filters produced almost green shadows.

The last three photos worked well and had actually been set up by another group using two lights and two different coloured filters. The effect is really strong.
