Week 3 Questions

1. A pinhole camera is a simple camera with no lens and a very small aperture. Light from a scene passes through a single point and projects the image on the opposite side of the box. The camera also has a manual shutter so that you can easily control how long it would stay open. This camera is used a lot for things that happen over time such as the movement of sun overtime.
2. Annie Leibovitz is one of six children in her family. Her father was in the Air Force and she took her first pictures when he was stationed in the Philippines. in 1970, she worked for Rolling Stone magazine and her intimate photos defined what the magazine was. If you were to see all of her work, you would be able to tell, that she wants to make a statement. And indeed, she always does.
3. John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Demi Moore, Brooke Shields, Whoopi Goldberg, David Cassidy, Dolly Parton, John Belushi, Queen Elizabeth, Bruce Springsteen, Gisele B√ľndchen, LeBron James, Miley Cyrus.

Week 2 Questions - Black and White Photography

1. The three basic elements of a camera are the subject, the lens, and the film.
2. A SLR camera is where the photographer sees exactly the same image that will be on the film and still be able to adjust the settings.
3. The aperture controls the amount of light that the camera gets.
4. It is like the aperture. It can let in a certain amount of light but opening and closing the lens. If the shutter speed is fast, it would let in a small amount and if it is slow, it would let in a lot of light.
5. The shutter speed, f-stop, and aperture needs to be balanced to get the right exposure.
6. The speed would have to be very high such as 1/500 or 1/1000. If you are outside and there is a lot of sun already, you wouldn't want to let in a lot of light. So the higher the second number is, the darker the photo will be.
7. -The film is placed in developing agent that is a reducing agent.
-Rinse the film with water, or by using a "stop" bath.
-Remove the silver-halide crystals the fixing bath.
-The film is washed with water to remove all the processing chemicals. The film strip is dried, and the exposures are cut into negatives.
8. You need a roll of black and white film and ink.
9. Silver.

Week 1 Questions

At the age of 16, Edward Weston became a photographer. He got a Kodak Bull's-Eyde #2 from his father and that was all he used. He took his photos mostly around the depression and, in many photos, you can see what life was like during the depression. His most famous photo was "Green Peppers". I didn't think it even looked like a pepper. It was curled up and looked a little stale. He also took photos of women and there was a photo that was comparing the pepper to a woman, and it did. The woman's legs were curled up just like what the pepper looked like. I think that Weston was trying to make a connection between the pepper and the woman.

I also researched three different, popular cameras. One of them was a Compact Digital Camera. It wasn't designed for the purpose of extravagant photos. Just like the name, it was made to be small and portable. Many people have seen this camera because it was also made for snapshot use. There was also the Digital Single-Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera. It uses a mechanical mirror which allows preview framing and depth of field. It also resembles a 35mm, a very popular camera. The last one was a Bridge Digital Camera. It is a type of very high end cameras. It is about the same size and weight as a DSLR but it does not have a mirror, like the DSLR.
