Photos – Macro mode – Science Lesson 122

Today I took some more photos in Macro mode on the Eos rebel , all I had to do to get there was to switch to the flower icon. It’s really simple.

S5-Lesson 107 – More Photos & Descriptions

Here are today’s photos, all taken with the Eos Rebel and some either underexposed or overexposed.  If you notice the captions, I’m going to start putting the regular camera terms beneath, and also explain the Aperture, ISO, and Shutter Speed.  Aperture is the opening in the front of the camera that  opens and closes when you adjust the F-Stops, which normally range from about 2.8 to 22 on a good camera.  2.8 lets in the most light, and everything after that is halved b the next f-stop up, or usually 4.5.  Therefore, 4.5 is half of 2.8, and 5.0 would be 1/4 of what 2.8 has, etc.  ISO is the sensitivity of the sensor and can determine your exposure value as well as balance out the Aperture size difference.  I’m pretty sure most people with a DSLR camera know what the shutter is, and for those that don’t, it’s a large metal plate in the back of the camera with a lens in the center to capture the photo.  Well, shutter speed, just like ISO, can define the picture.  A smaller shutter speed, like 1/500 of a second can freeze motion, while larger ones, from 1/50 of a second create motion blur and need a tripod.  The larger shutter speeds do give you a light-trail advantage, however, so you can do stuff like this:    light-trailsPretty cool, huh?  You can also write words in cursive like a guy in a video did.  They wrote the words “photo camp” with a glowing Frisbee, and at the end one of the guys threw the Frisbee underneath the word, underlining it, using a 30 second shutter speed, a high ISO, and a 2.8 aperture.  It looked really cool, see:2017-02-01It looks so cool! I want to do that!  Anyways, here’s the photos that I promised:

Wind tunnel!!

So, a while ago on Christmas day, I went to the wind tunnel at IFly in Loudoun and the videos are here.  Also, note my legs.  They’re supposed to be stiff.

 

 

SO FUN AND SUPER COOL!!!    😎   I’m glad I was able to do that this time!
