Working Outline WorkSheet (I don’t accept written outlines)
Topic: How to take a photo with a DSLR camera
Specific Purpose: Using the ISO, shutter speed, and aperture to take a picture manually on a DSLR camera. Thesis statement: Today I will teach you how to correctly combine the ISO, shutter speed, and aperture in order to capture a photo manually with a DSLR camera. Introduction
Attention Material (I)(Going to ask class question) “Raise your hand if you or someone you know, wither it be your mom, friend, aunt, whoever, has a DSLR or ‘fancy’ camera.
Now keep your hand up if you actually know how to use it. All right, well I want to change that! Credibility Material: (II) I am currently in a photojournalism class at WKU and I pick up taking photos on the weekends for extra money. I am going to major in photojournalism and pursue either that or just a regular photographer as a career.
Preview: (III) Today I will teach you how to correctly combine the ISO, shutter speed, and aperture in order to capture a photo completely manually using a DSLR or ‘fancy’ camera. (Transition to Body of Speech)
Have you ever seen a photo that was entirely too bright or on the opposite side, way too dark? Well that’s our ISO. Body First Main Point (I) According to Joe McNally (2010) “The ISO refers to the camera’s sensitivity to light” Subpoint: (A) Higher the ISO, the more sensitive the camera will be Subpoint: (B) Lower the ISO, the less sensitive the camera will be (Transition to Second Main Point)
Camera problem number 2; we’ve all seen blurry photos, but then on the other hand there are these amazing sports photographs that seem to freeze time, this is the work of our shutter speed Second Main Point (II) “Exactly how long or short the gateway to the sensor is open is called the shutter speed”, (EF LENS WORK III The Eyes of EOS). ______________________________ Subpoint: (A) The faster the shutter, the more crisp the photo, but then the higher the ISO has to be. Subpoint: (B) The slower the shutter, the blurrier the photo, and the lower the ISO can be. (Transition to Third Main Point)
The final camera variable in the equation is usually the most confusing. Ever wonder why in some photos just the person’s eye is in focus, or just their rings like in wedding pictures, and then in others, everything is in focus the foreground, background, everything, we owe this to aperture. Third Main Point (III) Aperture, the amount of light that passes through the lens, retrieved from http://www.canon.com.au/worldofeos/learn/getting-started/Definitions-of-aperture-iso-shutter-speed.aspx Subpoint: (A) The more light, the more depth of field (Just the nose in focus) Needs lower ISO Subpoint: (B) The less light, the less depth of field (Everything in focus) Needs higher ISO (Transition to Conclusion)
All three of these are important variables that intertwine with one another in order to produce beautiful breath-taking photos Conclusion
Summary: (I) Using ISO, shutter speed, and aperture, you now know how to compose a shot completely on the manual mode of a DSLR camera!
Concluding Remarks: (II) So the next time you look at a photo realize that there truly is more than what meets the eye
