Project Description

Pet Portraits

ASSIGNMENT

Shoot a photo of your pet with perfect exposure using manual settings. Sometimes getting great pet shots is hard because they might be indoors where there isn’t a lot of light, or they are running around. Get down low to their level so that your camera is around eye-level with them. This will give them a better presence and make for a better portrait.

If you don't have a pet, you can try to find an animal out in the world to take a photo of. You can go to a friend's house who has a pet. Or if neither of those are possible, take a photo of a person.

The goal is to show how you can capture perfect exposure with your manual settings

DELIVERABLE

Post a photo and note what the aperture (f-stop), shutter speed, and ISO were when shooting that photo.
