I was not able to come to class today; being sick is apparently a norm for me lately as the weather is constantly changing hence I get affected easily. However, I was able to seek some knowledge from my group mates regarding on the agenda today. Apparently, the topic was on photography. For me, I was always interested in photography as I believe that everyone has their own view and perspective about the things they captured for every photos tells and holds a thousand interpretations. I believe that art comes in all different forms; photography being the most obvious one. Example; the Mona Lisa is a famous art and I personally think that there is more than just her smile behind the art itself.
Moving forward, Dr. Fariza showed the class pictures she have taken when she travels or go for an outing. She introduced some apps we can download online such as VSCO cam which is quite famous right now and is used by young adults that is into photography. I personally enjoyed VSCO cam as the filter does justice towards the photo I taken. So apparently, there are many terms in photography that I am still not aware. Although I am exposed to the usage of a DSLR or a phone camera, however I am not equipped with the knowledge on the terms that is used or can be seen in the device.
With that, here is a few terms that I wish to share that I found online. This enable me to understand what exactly the terms does.
Depth of Focus / Depth of Field
For force, it basically highlight the measurement of the area in focus within an image, from the closest point of focus to the furthest point of focus. For depth of field, it literally show the measure of how much the background and foreground area before and beyond your subject is in focus. This depth can be increased by stopping the lens down to smaller apertures. In addition to that, this can be done by opening the lens to a wider aperture hence it will narrow the depth of field.
Basically, a watermark is an image or icon that is embedded into the photograph which refers to information of the photographer to protect the copyrights of the image.
Exposure is known as the phenomenon of light striking the surface of film or a digital imaging sensor. The exposure is determined by the volume of light passing through the lens aperture combined with the duration of the exposure or shutter speed. The proper exposure, which is best determined using a light meter, can be established in a number of exposure modes including manual, program or automatic, shutter priority and aperture priority.
