My name is Megan Oteri and I will be working with you during our residency, A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words. I am looking forward to working with you next week. I wanted to introduce myself and also share some links with you about some aspects of photography. We will be spending most of our time taking photos, as that is how you get good at taking photos -- by actually taking them.
The three things we will be focusing on for photography techniques are:
- Rule of Thirds
- Focus and framing
Another term I wanted to introduce you to is Depth of Field. That is where the background is blurry and the subject of your photo is brought into focus. Sometimes this is achieved by blurring the object closest to viewer's eye and bringing the foreground into focus. See the examples below and watch the video to learn more about this technique using cameras. We will be using iPads so this technique can be achieved by using your finger to tap on what you want to bring into focus.
