1. A DSLR is an interchangeable lens camera that we use in class that uses a a 45 degree mirror linked to an optical viewfinder that flips open to reveal an light sensitive image sensor that allows you to take pictures and is a light proof box.  It is also considered your best friend in this class. 🙂
  2. Depth of field could aid me if I were to take a portrait of someone and would like to blur out the background. This could be done by adjusting the aperture to a smaller number that would allow for a shallow depth of field compared to a larger aperture which allows less light but does not have as much depth of field
  3. Birds eye/Worms eye view, Selective focus, Horizontal balance, vertical balance, framing, Field of view, Rule of thirds, leading lines, repetition, Silhouette, Leading lines.
  4. Shutter speed is defined by how long the camera is exposed to the light and is controlled by a button. For an example 1/125 is 1/125th of a second and that meant light was allowed for 1/125th of a second and you can adjust that in your camera. Faster shutter speeds can be used to capture action, and a slower shutter speed can blur things out, like bluring out a waterfall for example. Aperture is like the eye of a camera. When you have a bigger aperture such as f/22 you get less of a depth of field. Aperture is defined by an f stop number such as F2.8 or f/2.8. The smaller the aperture the wider the lens is and the shallower the depth of field like for example f/1.4.
  5. Filters tool allows you to select what photos you would like to choose for your blog, and you can choose by rating for example or even by file name. It is great if you have a ton of photos as and you want to narrow down to like the 5 best photos for your blog. Ratings is a system where you can choose if the photo is good or bad by pressing from 1 to 5 stars from 1 being totally not a photo you would hang on a refrigerator to 5 being something you would want to put on your own blog for this class to get an A+.

  7. Metadata is like a photos DNA and it tells you what camera you are using, shutter speed, aperture, what mode you are using (hopefully Manual), white balance, ISO speed, if it was shot in RAW or JPEG, date/time etc.
  8. Renaldi’s process was to take people on the street and pair them together outside on the street in a non studio environment. Each person that was paired together was photographed touching each other but in a non intimate way. This was in the short film touching strangers.
  9. Butterfly lighting, Rembrandt lighting, front lighting, lighting, spot lighting, and above lighting.
  10. Letters of a young artist is a process that allows you to hear from other artists and view their stores in how successful they are as an artist and their life’s experiences. You can use this to help inspire you and to help you become a better artist or become a better person, so no matter what style of art you plan to do, you can at least try to get those opportunities and to relate to that person.
