I decided to photograph my Cap and tassels from my high school graduation. I'll have to share the memories that these items bring to mind in a separate post. But here's the few things I learned about photographing these objects.
|f 4.5, exp 1/8 sec, ISO 100|
Spot focus metering
|f 4.5, exp 1/15, bias +0.3, ISO 100|
Center Weight Average metering
I also realized taking a photo of the cap, for me, was boring. Having the school color tassel as well as my cum laude neck tassels draped over the hat, told a better story.
So, when you're photographing your high school objects this month, pay attention to the details of the back ground. See if you can smooth things out a little. Also, group objects in collections for a more interesting photo story. Having fun! I can't wait to see what you capture in photos.
