Capstone Project #2

When I’m taking pictures at night and in nature, I start by finding cool spots during the day. My goal is to make awesome pictures that show off the beauty of nature when the sun goes down. I learned that taking pictures at night is totally different from daytime pics. You have to be patient and try out different settings like f-stop, shutter speed, and ISO to get the right look.

Taking a picture of the moon was really tough for me. I had to experiment a lot with different camera settings to get it just right. I struggled a bit to find the perfect balance between ISO, f-stop, and shutter speed. In the end, the settings I used were ISO 800, f-stop 5.6, and a shutter speed of 1/15. I still didn’t get the picture I was hoping for but it came out a lot better then others. This photo was taken in my backyard.

I wanted to make this picture of a flower from Bok Tower really stand out, so I decided to edit it to make the background black and just focus on the flower itself. It was a bit of a challenge, but I was determined to make it stand out. To capture the image, I used settings of ISO 100, f-stop 3.5, and a shutter speed of 1/1600. These settings helped me get a crisp, sharp image of the flower. I played around with the contrast and brightness to make the flower pop against the dark background.
