    • Unit 57: Photography and Photographic Practice Terminology P1, P2, M1, M2 Joshua Whipday
    •  In  This would be an photography, shutter example of a slow speed determines shutter speed. how the camera allows light to come into contact with the film or sensor.
    •  ISO stands for International Organization for Standardization. ISO sets standards in many businesses and technologies. ISO is not an abbreviation but instead derives from the Greek word isos. The meaning of isos is to be equal.
    • If the aperture on a camera is raised this allows Depth of field is the range ofmore light to reach the film. So aperture is how distance that is sharp enough to bewe adjust the light the film receives. a good quality picture. The further away the more the picture blurs. APERTURE DEPTH OF FIELD
    •  Exposure is the amount of light that is allowed to reach each area unit of photographic medium when taking a photograph weather the medium being a film or image sensor. Manual exposure allows us to have full control over the exposure of our photos by turning the wheel on the lens of the camera. Manual exposure unlike automatic exposure allows us to take shots that we might not want to be fully focus to achieve a blurred look to a photograph.
    •  Automatic exposure is a setting on most modern cameras that allows the user to completely focus on what they are taking a picture of and the camera will put the shot you choose to take in focus before you take it. The advantage of using automatic exposure is that you as a photographer can concentrate on taking extra care to keep the camera still if shooting free hand, it also allows you to get the best framed shot you can without having to worry about focus and exposure.
    •  Colour balance is the global adjustment of the intensities of the colours (typically red, green, and blue the reason being these are the primary colours. The left half shows the photo as it came from the digital camera. The right half shows the photo adjusted to make a grey surface neutral in the same light.
    •  White balance is adjusted in photography to ensure the colours in the photographs we take is as accurate as possible.
    •  Composition in photography is the positioning of the visual elements in the photograph being taken. It is used to take a balanced photograph and to also keeps all key aspects of the photograph being taken inside the frame.
    •  The Rule of thirds is used to evenly frame a shot. Imagining the viewfinder on your camera being separated into 9 squares, 3 squares across 3 squares up.
    •  Analogous colours have what is referred to as a ‘Analogous colour harmony’, an example of some colours that have a Analogous colour harmony would be orange and yellow. These colours can easily be revised as good photographers do to ensure that the photographs they take flow, also by knowing these colours you can easily distinguish an easy to understand colour theme.
    •  Using Complementary colours in a photograph creates contrast and really eye catching photos. These colours are the opposites of each other on the colour wheel therefore they are easily executed in photography to good effect. Often using complimentary colours in your photography will create a dramatic image since each colour makes the other colour appear more active.
    •  Macro photography is extreme close up shots. These shots are of small objects most of the time. By some definitions, a macro photograph is one in which the size of Photomacrograph of a the subject on the common yellow dung fly negative or image (Scathophaga stercoraria) sensor is life size or made using a lens at its greater. However in maximum 1:1 other uses it refers to a reproduction ratio, and a finished photograph of 18×24mm image a subject at greater than sensor, the on-screen life size. display of the photograph results in a greater than life-size image.
