The point of this exercise is to experiment with the camera and with technique, not necessarily to create high-quality photos. In fact, some of the photos (indoors without flash, for example) may be of poor quality. Do not alter these photos in Photoshop…submit the original file as it comes off your camera.

Assignment: Take 16 digital photos using varying subjects and techniques to apply what we learned in class today. Name all photos as indicated below and place in a folder named yourlastname_firstphoto. Place this folder in the 59VanWyke folder. 1. two photos must be of the same subject at two different resolutions (640x480 and 1600x1200, or your smallest and largest resolutions). ▪ Slug these photos yourlastname640.jpg and yourlastname1600.jpg 2. two photos must be an indoor portrait of a person, one using auto flash and one without flash. ▪ Slug these photos yourlastnameindoorflash.jpg and yourlastnameindoorsnoflash.jpg 3. two photos must be an outdoor portrait of a person shot at mid-day (10 a.m. – 2 p.m.) in bright sunlight, one using fill-in flash (or “force flash”) and one without flash. ▪ Slug these photos yourlastnameoutdoorflash.jpg and yourlastnameoutdoornoflash.jpg 4. one photo must be a close-up (macro) of text in a book or other printed publication. ▪ Slug this photo yourlastnamemacro.jpg 5. two photos must be of the same subject, one using the camera’s zoom feature and one without zoom. You must shoot from the same distance from your subject for both photos. ▪ Slug these photos yourlastnamezoom.jpg and yourlastnamenozoom.jpg 6. one photo must be shot outdoors at night using the night mode. Your subject must be in dim light and fairly close to the camera. Practice holding the camera very steady to avoid blurring. Experiment by placing the camera on a tripod, if you have one,…...

...Precious Moment There is a photo taken the morning after I had given birth to my second daughter. This photo represents everything that is important in my life. This photo is important to me because it is the first family picture that was taking after our second daughter was born. I am hunched over in agony as my daughter Ella tries ever so gently to climb on my lap. She looks at me with such concern and smiles as she settles her little bottom next to me. I feel like a total mess my hair is all over the place. I have the sagging eyes of an old woman. I basically look like hell. After all I had just given birth. On my right side is my husband Ray sitting next to me with this quirky smile on his loving face. The look of a man who just became a dad is all over his face. He looks amazing as he always does. There is not a sight of the exhaustion that I know he feels anywhere on his face. My husband is very caring and considerate. He is funny, thoughtful, respectful, and so focused on providing for his family. He is the most charming man that I have met I guess that could be why I married him. Ray is educated and always trying to teach me something about what he is working on. Ray owns his own construction business and is always working on some new project and I think that he wants me to feel involved in our business so he tries to explain what he is working on. I appreciate the effort but I really don't understand what he is talking about half the time. Ella, our......

... GE217 Composition II Week 2 (B) Identifying logical Fallacies 1. Bandwagon Appeal: “Cash for Clunkers”; The New York Times, September 30, 2012 The argument on this article is about how the people think that something should to be done because the majority does it. The "Cash for Clunkers" program has been a success. By subsidizing the purchases of new, more fuel efficient vehicles for Americans willing to trade in their old gas guzzlers, this initiative makes a short-term investment in our long-term goals of environmental protection and decreasing our dependence on fossil fuels. 2. Ad Hominem: The education for women; Richard Norquist; This is an article from the year 1917 were women are not suppose to know everything like men, he’s argument and appeal that women should have the right to go be equal to men in terms of education. 3. Begging the question: “Murder is morally wrong, Therefore, abortion is morally wrong”;Hurley P. ; About.com The argument presumes the truth of a premise that isn’t stated, namely that abortion is murder. As this premise is far from obvious, and the arguer doesn’t even mention it (much less give it a defense), the argument begs the question. 4. Red Herring: Consequences of using Nuclear Power; Dean Babst and David Krieger; 1997 Here the arguer does nothing to address the issue of the dangers of nuclear power, but instead changes the subject to the danger of electricity. If there’s even an argument at all here, it certainly has nothing......

...First, let’s explore how the “photo” part of photosynthesis captures light energy. These first steps are called the light reactions. Plant cells involved in photosynthesis are packed with organelles called chloroplasts. Within these chloroplasts are flattened membrane sacks stacked up like coins—the thylakoids. Groups of proteins and pigment molecules are embedded within the thylakoid membranes. The structure and arrangement of these molecules creates a system of interacting components that work together to capture the energy from light and convert it into chemical energy. These collections of molecules are called photosystems and they come in two types called photosystem I and photosystem II. The two photosystems lie in close proximity to each other. In fact, they are wired together with an electron transport chain. Trying to keep track of the details of the various photosynthetic reactions is a bit much. Refer to the light reaction illustrations in your text and please explore the animations on your CD-ROM. The animations present a clear picture of the how the photosystems work. Here, let’s focus on an overview of the light reactions with an emphasis on the inputs and outputs. Remember there are two photosystems; each collects light photons. When a photosystem absorbs a photon, an electron is bumped to a higher energy level. The high-energy electrons from photosystem II are used to produce ATP, while the high-energy electrons from photosystem I are used to produce NADPH,......

...started taking photo technique class. This class is important to my field. Previously, I did not have knowledge or experience about how to use the Professional camera. After one month of taking photo technique class, I became having background about how to take a brilliant photo from best sight. In this essay, I will Explain steps for taking a great photo by professional camera. I know that almost everyone knows how to take a good picture with a mobile phone Camera or normal camera, But what about professional camera like Canon or Nikon? It's different. You will notice these differences when you buy a professional camera. For example, Canon 70D camera cost almost 1,500 dollars. Do not panic from the price, The photos that you are going to take, deserve that price. Forget about the price, and let begin the steps. First step, Turn on your camera. Make sure your camera has a full batteries, then set your camera mode. Second step, Find your object. Try to find something interesting, it can be a location, or person, or an inanimate. Third step, Find an emphasis for your subject. For example, The eye on a cat, Cherry on a sundae, Or ladybug on a leaf. The fourth step, Be sure of the proper lighting.

Composition and Inverse

...Composition and Inverse Alicia Frambro MAT 222: Intermediate Algebra Prof: Michael Smith September 22, 2013 Composition and Inverse When using functions, there are different ways to solve various values. Many companies use these functions to monitor business pertaining gross profit and many other operations such as adjusting productivity. Visual examples of these functions are graphs. They provide a visual relationship between composition and inverse solutions as well and the difference between profit gain and profit loss for a business. The following functions will be used to solve certain problems. fx=2x+5 g(x)=x2-3 (x) = 7+x3 f-h(4) Use rule of composition and solve which is f(4)-h(4). f(x)-h(x)= 2x+5-(7-x) 2(4) +5- 7-43 Substitute 4 for x. 8+ 5- 33 Use order of operations to solve. 8+5-1= 12 Therefore (f-h)(4)= 12 Evaluate two compositions of the above functions. A. (fog)(x) B. (fog)(x) The method that should be used to solve is to find the solution of one function and then substitute the solution for x in the other solution. For A we would first solve for g(x) and substitute the solution for x into f(x). A. (fog)(x)= f(g(x)) (fog)(x)= f(x2-3) (fog)(x)= 2(x2-3) +5 Substitute g(x) for x in f(x). (fog)(x) = 2x2-6+5 Simplify by using the distributive property and order of operations. (fog)(x)= 2x2 -1 Answer. B. (h0g)(x) = h(g(x)) Use the same concept of A but (hg)(x)= h(g(x)) (hog)(x) = h(x2 –......

Photo Paper

...the winner advancing to the College World Series. The photo represents various different aspects of my playing career and how the journey has helped me become a better man. Throughout my baseball career I have faced a lot of adversity. I started my career at age eight playing for Jackie Robinson West Little League in inner city Chicago. My father also played in the league when it first was established. He also played college baseball, so he mentored and taught me the foundations of the game. After my little league career I began playing for a travel team. Traveling around the country, I was able to meet players from around the country and learn their stories. I enjoyed hearing them because it was cool to talk to someone with the same goals as you. As I entered my high school years, I entered a very intense part of my career which was finding a college. Baseball is extremely competitive and getting a scholarship was one of the most challenging things I ever experienced in my career. I was offered the scholarship at Kankakee CC and to be honest, I was disappointed. I thought had better talent than junior college and I had worked so hard my career. I wasn’t put into situations to succeed in front of premier colleges. This disappointment was fuel to my fire. I worked very hard at the junior college, and even there I was not given the opportunity until the postseason, the most important part of the season. In that photo I was preparing to play in one of the biggest games......

Composition of Sugars

...Lab: 3—Chemical Composition of Cells: Sugars Purpose of this lab: To learn about sugars and the test used to identify them. Introduction The organic macromolecules known as sugars are a type of carbohydrate. Carbohydrates are composed of monosaccharides, which are single, sugar unit monomers. Two sugar units linked together are known as a disaccharide. In this lab, we conducted tests on various substances with Bendict’s solution to determine which sample contained sugars. Benedict’s solution is a turquoise blue color and reacts with sugars after being heated in a boiling water bath, resulting in a color change. The color change varies with the concentration of sugar present, with strong positives indicating a high sugar concentration and weaker positives correlating with lesser concentrations of sugar. The color changes are as follows: orange-red (very high), orange (high), yellow-orange (moderate), yellow (low), green (very low), no change in color (no sugar present). Materials and Methods: --6 test tubes marked at 1cm and 3cm from the bottom --Benedict’s reagent --substances to be tested: water (control), glucose solution, onion juice, potato juice, starch suspension, and an unknown substance --hot plate with a beaker filled with water for a boiling water bath Each substance to be tested was filled in a separate test tube to the 1cm mark, with the exception of onion and potato juice, to which 5 drops of each were added to......

The Analysis for a Photo Essay

...The photo essay story I want to analysis is named Missao and Fukumaru. The author is a Japanese photographer called Miyoko Ihara. Here is the link. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.362038270558190.81413.301135309981820&type=3 Firstly, I want to introduce some basic things about the photo essay. The story mainly happened in the photographer’s grandmother, Missao’s farm. There are different kinds of vegetables and fruits in the setting, which make the photos colorful. The main characters of the photo essay are the photographer’s grandmother, Missao, and Missao’s cat, Fukumaru. They live in the farm and are the best friend of each other. I think the biggest conflict is that Missao is old. There are deep winkles on her face. But the cat, Fukumaru is small and cute. Besides, Missao is a person and Fukumaru is a cat. So it is amazing that they are good friends. These conflicts make the friendship between them more valuable and make the photo essay more attractive. There is no sequence of events. All the photos are about the daily life of Missao and Fukumaru. They do a lot of ordinary but touching things together in Missao’s farm. They respect each other, building a friendship beyond the ethnicity. Then I want to talk about the technical skills applied in this photo essay. First, most photos have a good composition. The photographer put Missao and Fukumaru in the middle of the photo so that I can easily tell the main characters. Some of the photos are colored.......

Composition

...Composition 1.1 Felipe Viveiros de Moura PAT 201 1. “Creaking Door” a. Where and when: This creaking door was recorded on Wednesday, 13th of January in my house located in South State Street. b. Interest and influence: Having lived in this house for about 5 months, the creaking of my door every time I leave my room has become a sound that is part of my daily routine. After listening to all my recordings and selecting the top 8, this was one of the ones that, I believe, captured exactly what I was looking for. c. Techniques: Mic of the recorder was placed very close to the axis of rotation of the door d. Success in capturing sound: For a couple of tries, I could not capture the sound as loud as I intended to. After changing position, recording from inside the room and increasing the recording level, I was able to get the results I wanted. Background sound from my roommates was another difficulty but recording from inside the room helped solve the problem. 2. “Flush” e. Where and when: The flush of a toilet was recorded on Wednesday, 13th of January in my house located in South State Street. f. Interest and influence: Although this is a sound that everyone listens to every day, it does not receive the appreciation that it deserves due to its bad association. g. Techniques: recorder was placed perpendicular to the toilet centered in the drainage, to avoid the sound being too loud I made sure to place the recorder......

...image in traditional photography is the most accurate and realistic image that one can have. Traditional photographs don't lie because unlike in digital photography, it can never be changed or manipulated. In digital photography, images can be altered according to the photographer's context in different ways easily and more artistically. A possible problem with digital photographs is their quality because they fade rather quickly. Though improvements are being done, few digital images will have the longevity of traditional photographs. A counter-argument, however, is that digital photos can be easily reproduced when necessary but it's only for a short-term basis. Once needed, there is no assurance that computers will be able to access them for future use. Another rarely explored issue is the immediacy of digital photography. Immediate results are sometimes not much productive. Your worst photos wouldn't be so bad, but your best images wouldn't be much better. While immediate results might be beneficial to a commercial photographer, in most cases, it becomes a distraction from photography. Digital photography offers more options for creativity. To consider it as more efficient, faster and cheaper is another issue. Traditional photography, on the other hand, is still an easy and convenient way to make and store high-resolution images. Generally, traditional photographs still contain a lot of image information. However, this is the most important consideration -......

Photo Manipulation

...Photo manipulation is the function of image editing techniques to photographs in order to create an illusion or deception through analog or digital means. Its uses, cultural impact, and ethical concerns have made it a subject of interest beyond the technical process and skills involved (Wikepedia). Photo manipulation has been regularly used to deceive or persuade viewers, or for improved story-telling and self-expression. As early as the American Civil War, photographs were published as engravings based on more than one negative (Wikeepedia). I believe that for the sake of representing honest and accurate information, the digital editor should avoid anything that will change the actual event or scene as it was captured by the camera. This includes adding, removing or moving objects in such a way that the context of the event is altered. The digital image editor should be careful to let the photos speak for themselves. So I don’t think it's permissible to alter any aspect of place or time. Since the 1940s political leaders from around the world have been gathering in New York City at the United Nations headquarters to discuss and maintain international peace and security, to safeguard human rights, to promote social and economic progress, to improve living standards, and fight diseases. The United Nations is an international organization whose stated aims are to facilitate cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress and......

A Brief History of Photo Journalism.

...A brief history of photo journalism Created on: May 28, 2008 Last Updated: August 06, 2008 "A picture is worth a thousand words" should be the motto of the photojournalist. It certainly is what they are all about. Who can ever forget some of the most memorable photos of the 20th century? It was the photo journalist who brought us the horror of the holocaust, the joy of the sailor who returned home and the faces of the world. We have been a part of history through the eyes of a camera lens. Photo-journalism is almost as old as the camera itself. The first photo journalist was Carol Szathmari who did documentary photos of the Crimean War in the 1850's. It was Matthew Brady who really should have the title of Greatest photojournalist of the 19th century. His photos of the Civil War were made into engravings and published in Harpers Weekly. They are no less poignant today than they were when he took them over 150 years ago.He brought to life the main players in the Civil War. If it wasn't for him we would not have seen the care worn face of Abraham Lincoln or the meeting of the great generals. It took until the 1880's for photographs to be published in newspapers. The invention of the flash powder allowed photography to go indoors added a whole new dimension to the ability of the photojournalist to tell his story with pictures. It wasn't until the flash bulb was invented along with the 35mm camera that photojournalism really took off. The period between the 1930's and the......
