When dealing with shutter speed, my main goal was to show motion by making a certain part of the image blurry. The creates an effect of the camera not being able to capture the quick movements. I used someone falling and car moving, both examples of quick motion.
The Hard and Soft light project helped me to understand how to define the mood of a photograph, and how to manipulate the overall feeling using lighting. For a less dramatic and serious approach, I used soft light, and for a more shadowy effect, I used hard light.
The Blair News Story project helped to strengthen my editing skills. I was given a template to put my edited images in. I then used different kinds of texts to look like a newspaper or magazine title, and edited the colors of the project so that everything looked even.
Resolution describes the amount of pixels in an image. A picture with a high resolution will be clearer, whereas a picture with a low resolution can look choppy and low quality. There are twp types of color models shown; RGB, which is additive, and CMYK, which is subtractive.
