Shooting Checklist - A Creative Interpretation of Reality
Photographic slices of existence

This is another little visual aid I've thrown together for a class. I'm taking my students on a field trip to do some architectural interiors tonight and wanted to give them a reference guide of some things to try.

By the way, if anyone is interested, the full-sized version of these visual aids are available by clicking through to the scrapbook page. They are sized for 4x6 prints at 300 dpi and anyone interested can download them to print them themselves.

You know, I honestly had no idea that there was this much involved in photography. Most of my experience with this stuff was trying to write conversion algorithms for color spaces and 3D -> 2D coordinate transforms, and cursing because the math was always several orders of magnitude more complicated than it needed to be.

Photography is (or at least can be) highly technical. The physics of light are obviously important, be they issues of spectrum, diffraction, intensity, and others. If you want to get very technical, every lens has a sweet spot for sharpness when the aperture blades close down; too wide open the image tends to be soft, too small and diffraction causes problems. Depth of field shifts with focal length, aperture size, and distance to subject, and the list goes on.

That being said, having taught the basic principles of colour space, I can sympathize with the difficulty in creating transforms. I'm happy to have Photoshop handle colour space shifts ^_^

My current problem is finding wavelength transforms. Wikipedia can tell me the relative wavelengths of the primaries. It has pictures with the shape of the wavelength/primary relationship curves. Nowhere does it ever give any actual numeric values for these. I may just have to look at the pictures and guess my way through a color conversion. :P
