Description

This PowerPoint slideshow shows students how to take wildlife photos using 35 different beetle and bug photos I took using my smartphone. I explain

  • how to frame an image, when to use a flash vs natural lighting,
  • how to crop a photo and share it online,
  • how to approach wildlife without startling the subject,
  • varying the angle of the photograph,
  • how to store images in folders on your phone,
  • how to quick launch the photo app,
  • how to turn off the Review pictures option,
  • contrasting bugs with their background,
  • how to maximize a “bokeh” effect,
  • using the LCD screen to focus on subjects,
  • how to stay focused on a moving object with auto tracking,
  • how to find hidden bugs,
  • using your voice to activate the camera shutter,
  • capturing the moment that a bug looks at you,
  • how the weather affects insect photography,
  • how to use the “motion video” feature for images,
  • the importance of taking multiple photos,
  • why it is important to store photos on a SD card and not the phone’s internal memory,
  • what time of the day bugs are most active,
  • and much more.

Use this slideshow in a photography class or to help students include photography in their science or research projects. Your students have smartphones, so teach them to use this tool for instructional purposes. Assign photography projects that require stealth and focus. Start with something simple, insects. This PowerPoint will give your students the tools they need (from someone who does this for a living, me).
