more photoshop skills

In photoshop we learnt how to edit photos, draw on them , add other pictures in and more. this was good as we can now edit our photos in a more advanced way and make them look more professional. with this I will be able top edit photos of my own. I am looking forward to editing my own photos as they can be just how I like them with it all in focus and colours made to stand out more.

photography skills

(left) shallow depth of field                                   (right) large depth of field

Recently in photography we have learnt about depth of field. we have learnt about shallow and large depth of field and how it makes the background or foreground blurry and in front of it or behind in focus. these skills will make my photography better because I will have more skills to take better and more creative photographs. this will help me archive a better grade at the end of the  course.

shallow depth of field is when the subject in the foreground is in focus and the background is blurry, this is good as it brings out the detail in the focused subject and makes it stand out better. this is good in a picture as it will tell the viewer about what part of the photograph they need to focus on

large depth of field is where most of the image is in focus but the backgrounds is more focused. this is good as it makes a photograph unique and creative. it also makes the background stand out more which could be good if it was a view or something important which the photographer wants to point out.

music and songs

we made songs on logic pro with the keyboards and the loops on the software. this was good as we had a chance to experiment to use and get used to the software.  we also learned how music could be used in film rather than speech. we watched short films that contained music to add to the tension of the situation. the films worked really well and the music they put to it was simple but worked really well.



I have learned a lot in photography over the past few lessons, I have learned to take fast and slow shutter speed images. I have also learned the amount of light let into a photo by editing the aperture of a photo. the smaller the number the bigger the hole is to let light in. the bigger the number the smaller the hole to let light in is. light is the most important thing in photography as photography in Greek means ‘ drawing with light’

the second picture at the top is taken with a very fast shutter speed. this means that the moving object will have no blur to it in the picture. this is a good picture as it has really cool patterns and colours in it from the bubble. the left side of the bubble also has a nice reflection in it of a building which adds to the photo.

the top image is taken with a very slow shutter speed. in the photo the photographer has set up the camera on a slow shutter speed and put it on a tri pod facing the sky at night time. this image is nice as it shows the colours of the area and is a very unusual photo making it stands out.



Small Topics Covered

We learnt about film genres and how they make the film the type of film that it is. We saw lots of different examples of genres and learnt all of them and what makes them the genre that they are. We also learnt about music to film and TV  which helps set the scene and the mood it also gives emotion and is in time with what is happening on the screen. We then learned how to use logic pro to add music and sound in to create a song. This was interesting and I think my song came out well and sounded good. I have also created new skills to create blogs on wordpress and also made a Youtube account.
