Photo Assignment Create Special Effects from the Way Your Camera Perceives Light

Photo Assignment Create Special Effects from the Way Your Camera Perceives Light  is here to help you explore your camera's creative controls.


To create a special effect from how your camera perceives light, press the shutter halfway down in one place and move to another place to shoot a picture, in the following way:

    1. Set your camera to automatic mode.

    2. Turn off the flash.

    3. Sit by a window.

    4. Point your camera out the window so that your entire frame is in daylight.

    5. Press the shutter release halfway down.

    6. Point the camera inside the room to where there is some colour or a little light (less than what was out the window).

    7. Press the shutter button all the way down.
