Mandatory Assignment 04 – Photography week 18

This week we are handing in our photographies, showing our gained knowledge of our camera, photo theory and practical use. To show our photoskills, we must provide ten photos covering:

  • Night Photo ‑ hint: slow sync
  • Freeze water ‑ hint: fast shutter speed
  • «Misty / veil» ‑ hint: slow sync
  • The golden section ‑ hint: composition
  • Motion blur ‑ hint: shutter
  • Contrast ‑ hint: dark‑light, big‑tiny
  • Low key or high key ‑ hint: exposure
  • Curves and lines ‑ hint: composition
  • Drawing with Light ‑ hint: slow sync
  • Depth ‑ hint: first, middle and background
  • The images may be cropped, but not manipulated

Here are my ten photos:

I chose three favourite images to analyze.


  • Aperture: f5.6
  • Shutter Speed: 1/125
  • ISO: 500
  • Focal Length: 18mm


This photo works well due to its composition. It has a foreground, middle and background, the centre in focus. The foreground has an excellent descending line, the tree taking centre stage, and the farm far back in the hillside gives a lovely accent.

I feel the camera settings are relatively good for this photo, keeping the exposure triangle in balance.


  • Aperture: f5.6
  • Shutter Speed: 1/125
  • ISO: 500
  • Focal Length: 18mm

I took this photo to represent lines and curves. The architecture in the background has straight lines and defined curves, creating a contrasting backdrop to the plant in the foreground.

The photo’s complementary colours, red and green, is pleasing to the eye, and the composition is balanced.

I think the camera settings are well balanced. The photo has 18 mm focal length listed in its information, but I think it is probably 30 mm.

  • Aperture: f3.5
  • Shutter Speed: 6.0
  • ISO: 100
  • Focal Length: 18mm

I took this photo at night with slow shutter speed to be able to draw with light. I liked the final result.

The camera settings are pretty wild here, but it gave me the opportunity to capture the movement of the light, giving this doodle impression.
