Assignment 1:Fix the aperture value, change the ISO speed:
Assignment 2Fix the shutter speed, change the ISO speed:
Here there is a progression from dark to light, with the greatest contrast being beween the first two photos. Not only is the subjet, Bashful, lighter, but also the buildings outside in the distance become less clearly defined. This surprised me because I expected the background to be more defined the higher the aperture value.
I missed completeing last month's assignment on shutter speed, but tried to complete it last weekend. The cycle racing season has stared in earnest and there was an important race in my town last Sunday. Unfortunately I stopped reading the instructions too early so started at far too slow a shutter speed setting.
The start and finish were much too busy but I founld a good spot at a street corner, under some trees. The race was 9 laps of a 19 kilometre route. I arrived during the third lap, just in time to see, but not photograph the tete du cours. I did get the peleton but in the excitement forgot to change my camera setting!
