Garbage and Food Is Laying Around The York College Campus

Photos and text by Sherry Shivprasad

On a regular day at the York College Campus it is easy to spot papers, pens, napkins, drink bottles, food containers, food sauce and sometimes bugs crawling around. Most of the garbage bins are completely fulled to the maximum with all kinds of fast foods and snacks. Students have to study and eat while they are at the campus, but the environment could be cleaner. The staff, faulty, and students can help to contribute towards maintaining a healthy and neat environment.

These chairs are in front of the career center on the third floor of the York College campus. I shot this image at an angle where I was able to get natural light on the subject which is of the packet on the floor, the napkins on the chair, and the papers on the table. Also, I went closer up to the subjects to get a  direct view of it. This image is very clear, it has natural light, and in focused.

I went closer  to the subject and tilted the camera upward to get more light into the camera’s lens.  However,  when I took the first image it was tricky for me to get a brightly lighted and clear image. This is my third time shooting the image to get this result. The metadata of this photo has an aperture value of 4.625, set on manual exposure, f-stop is 5, ISO speed is 400, shutter speed is 1/40, and the focal length is 31.

In the cafeteria there is a table  that had a few packets of duck sauce. Some of the packets we’re leaking out sauce onto the table. I have tried several attempts to get an image bright enough that would show clearly that there was duck sauce on the table and  it was leaking. I had to stick the camera out of a corner while I snapped the photo to get a bright image. This step allowed me to get the natural light into the camera’s lens. The metadata of this image has an aperture value of 4.625, it is set on manual exposure, f-stop is 5, ISO speed is 400, shutter speed is 1/40, and the focal length is 20.

The table and the background was extremely dark and blurry. The closer I was to the table the less light went into the camera’s lens and my subject was below. I needed to get the light to shine on the table. I had to move away from the table in order to get the light into the camera’s lens. The metadata of this photo has an aperture value of 4.625, it is set on manual exposure, f-stop is 5, ISO speed rating is 200, shutter speed is 1/40, and the focal length is 20.
