Wk 1 - Bulb Function

Bulb function

is a shutter speed setting which allows for long exposure times (wikipedia).  This function is used when there is not enough light available, such as shooting at night.  When taking photos at night the shutter needs to open longer.

Bulb function task:
Take three photos at 3", 6" and 8" - with your subject moving out of the shot 3/4 of the way through or stand in the shot. It took us a few takes to get this right - especially as it was hard to see her.

These shots were taken outside at night.  Here are some of our pictures taken with the help of my model Pela

Shutter speed: 3.0", f/22

I asked Pela to walk through this photo after 1 second - you can see her shoes 
at the bottom of the shot

Shutter speed: 6.0", f/22
Pela walked through this photo after 3 seconds


Shutter speed 8.0, f/22


I asked Pela to take a step every 2 seconds


Shutter speed 7.0", f/22

Pela started walking through after 3 seconds, 
you can see her figure as well as her shoes at the bottom of the photo
ore time is equivalent to more light, so when you lack light, you can almost always compensate by keeping the shutter open longer. - See more at: http://www.digital-photo-secrets.com/tip/1293/what-is-bulb-mode-where-is-it-used/#sthash.W0aDgO67.dpuf
