Photography (People)

Today for ADMT, we did some photography. Here are 5 of my better photographs.

I took this picture of Isaac in the ADMT studio after we were given time to take photos.

I took this picture of Pasakorn taking pictures while walking around.

I think I'm the only one who took a photo of the cleaner uncle who walked past us. I asked him to let me take his picture. When I was done, I thanked him and he went on his way.

When I took a picture of Arthur, he didn't freak out. Instead he gave a nice smile. Sadly, the light and low resolution caused this image to not be that good.

The last pic is a pic with Matthew checking his camera for the pictures he had taken nearing the end of the day.

I think I know slightly more about photography than some of my classmates because I used my father's camera before.

Photography comes from Greek, and is loosely translated as drawing with light. This is true, as images are formed through using light. In the past, they used the camera obscura, usually to take an accurate image of nature. It was room with a hole to let in light, with n artist inside to paint out the image formed by the light. Nowadays, they use film which reacts fast with light to form an image.

Photography equipment, to name a few examples, a tripod, aperture, shutter, lens, photographic film, photoshop (???) etc.

The aperture is quite an important part, as it controls the amount of light entering. It does this by turning some teeth, which constantly form a whole circle.

Here is a website with a list of photography techniques:

A photography competition is where contestants submit their photographs on a theme, and the photographs are judged by a panel of judges. The winners get prizes, usually cash or equipment.

Difference between Perspective, Isometric, Oblique and Orthographic Drawing

Perspective drawing is mainly drawing from a view, and consists of single-point and two-point perspective drawing.

<-Isometric drawing is drawing an object using angles, and the drawing paper has special lines for angles.

Oblique drawing shows one face as a total frontal view, but is still 3D, with the other side being distorted. ->

Orthographic drawing is drawing from the view of one face of an object. ->
