Y2W6- Focus Exercise

Taking photos and videos of a water while focusing on focus.

  1. Take the Questioneers to a nearby stream, river, or pond. Make sure the area is safe and accessible for the Questioneers.

  2. Provide each Questioneer with a camera or smartphone with a camera and explain to them the importance of focus when photographing water. Explain that water can be tricky to focus on and that there are different techniques they can use to get the best results.

  3. Instruct the Questioneers to find a spot near the water and choose a subject to photograph, such as a rock, leaf, or twig in the water.

  4. Explain to the Questioneers that they need to experiment with different settings to get the best results. They can try adjusting the aperture to control the depth of field, the shutter speed to freeze or blur the motion of the water, and the ISO to adjust the exposure.

  5. Encourage the Questioneers to take multiple photos of their subject, trying different settings each time to see what works best.

  6. Once the Questioneers have taken their photos, have them review them and choose their favorite. Ask them to explain why they chose that particular photo and what techniques they used to achieve their desired effect.

  7. Next, challenge the Questioneers to take a short video of the water, trying different techniques to focus on different parts of the water. For example, they could try following the movement of the water or focusing on a specific area where the water is flowing over rocks or other objects.

  8. After the Questioneers have finished filming their videos, have them review them and choose their favorite. Ask them to explain why they chose that particular video and what techniques they used to achieve their desired effect.



This exercise teaches Questioneers about the importance of focus when photographing water and encourages them to experiment with different settings and techniques to get the best results. It also encourages creativity and exploration of the natural world.
