Digital Photography 2863 Test on Chapters 1 and 2 Spring 2013
1. What does the aperture do?A. It controls how much light reaches the sensor.B. It controls how long the shutter is open.C. It controls the depth of field.D. It controls the speed of the film.E. Both A and C.F. Both B and D.
20. Name at least one thing apolarizing filter can do.
21. Explain how the diaphragm of yourcamera lens is like a human eye.
22. True or False:The longer the lens, the more light isneeded to reach the sensor and thelarger the maximum aperture.
23. In this photo by Sebastiao Salgado, make aneducated guess about the aperture and shutter speedused. Use the word “fast” or “slow” for shutter speedand “large” or “small” to describe the aperture opening.
24. In this photo by Lou Jones, make an educatedguess about the aperture and shutter speed used.
25. Is it possible for an aperture named “f/4” tobe different actual sizes on different lenses?
26. What method is most effective in changing the perspective in a photograph?a. Changing the focal length of the lensb. Changing the lens to distance of the closest subjectc. Changing the angle of view
27. True or False:The shorter the lens, the greater the depth of field.
28. In this close-up view of a Nikon lens, explain whatthe circled numbers mean.
29. True or False:Zone focusing isuseful when youwant to shoot rapidlywithout refocusing,and can predictapproximatelywhere, if not exactlywhen, action will takeplace.
30. True or False: • A camera lens that is able to open to a very wide aperture is sometimes called a “fast lens.”
31. What type of lens was used to take allof the photos below without moving thecamera?
32. True or False:The “plane of critical focus”usually falls about 1/3 of theway back from the front ofthe depth of field.
33. Explain how this photo was taken. Include focus point and length of exposure.
34. Explain how apertures and shutter speeds work together using the “bucket of light” metaphor.
35. Which option is true of this photograph? It was probably taken with a: A. Small aperture and a slow shutter speed. B. Large aperture and a fast shutter speed.
36. These two Canon lenses have different focallengths. Will the aperture f/4 be the exact same size inboth lenses? What does an aperture designationactually designate?
37. Name one type of lens or devicecommonly used for taking close-ups.
38. If you wanted to take a photo of a public building but do not want to include people in the shot, what is one way of doing it which doesn’t involve staging the photo without people in it?
39. What changes perspective: changingthe focal length or changing the lens-to-subject distance?
40. True or False:• A small aperture has a shallow depth of field and a large aperture has a deep depth of field.
41. An f/32 aperture has what size opening? A. Large B. Small C. Medium
42. A lens is called “fast” because:A. It takes very little time to focus.B. The wide aperture allows for faster shutter speeds.C. It can capture a greater depth of field in a longer period of time.
43. Is there a. more or b. less motionblur when a subject is moving toward you?
44. In this photograph, was the shutter speed fast or slow?
45. “Depth of field” means:A. How many pixels your sensor captures.B. How much of the shot is in focus.C. How much of a landscape appears in your shot.D. How much of a view is seen in your viewfinder.
46. To achieve the silky quality of flowing water, what type of shutter speed should you choose: fast or slow?
47. What is the action of the camera below called?
48. What action by the photographer produced the motion blur in this photograph? A. Adjusting the aperture B. Making a short exposure C. Panning the figure D. Changing the film speed.
49. Which of the following aperturesettings was most likely used in the photo below? A. F/22 B. F/2.8 C. F/32
50. Which option is true of this photograph? It wasprobably taken with a: A. Small aperture and a slow shutter speed. B. Large aperture and a fast shutter speed.
