What is Photography
Transcript of What is Photography
greek words meaning literally "drawing with light"
Light is used to record a picture of an object or scene on light-sensitive material
or a digital sensor
point & shoot camera
Why use Photography??
can now record an image in a second, what would take artists days to paint or draw
use your photographs to express an idea, show aspects of the world that others may not see
"A picture is worth 1000 words"
photography is an extension of the artists eye & mind
"Photography is about seeing something, knowing how you want it to look, and making it that way. Making it that way, with the camera, is the easy part but seeing it in the first place is what makes a photographer"
The way each person sees something is unique,
you will look at a tree and see it
in a different way than your neighbor does
Using a camera, you will photograph an image of that tree in a different way than someone
standing right beside you will photograph the same tree
THE CAMERA IS A TOOL
the way we organize all the different things we see when we look through the camera viewfinder
So how do I
use my Camera??
everyone go ahead & find these parts on your camera
when you look on the screen,
these guidelines will help you decide
of your photograph
this is the
of your photograph--YOU DECIDE WHAT TO INCLUDE IN THIS FRAME AND WHAT NOT TO -this is called
DIFFERENT SITUATIONS CALL
FOR DIFFERENT SETTINGS
(ex: sports setting for basketball games, portrait setting for taking photos of people)

WITHOUT USING A CAMERA AT ALL
pretend you are taking a picture right now
-frame an interesting image
-not too many things going on
get up close!
details of subject up close are more interesting than far away--use zoom but also physically move up closer
record memories of life
choose the flash (lighting bolt symbol)
when it's dark or indoors
-choose no flash when outside (sun is enough)
-choose auto if you want the camera to decide
