Written Reflection

In this class I learned more about the history and uses of the camera and its instruments. I really had two favorite projects, one was the stations we did on lighting where we got to take pictures of each other in different lighting, the other was the photoshop unit. It was fun to get to play around and learn how to do effects that i have seen other people do. My least favorite project was the SAT word photo project because it was very hard to find certain letters just in the school and we couldn't go anywhere else to look for them. I like photography and plan to keep it as a hobby of mine while continuing to experiment around with different lenses, cameras and effects.

Camera Operations

Power On/Off- To turn on and off the power on our cameras, there is a slighter button on the top right side of the camera.

Macro/Supermacro- This is a setting that you can reach by pushing the arrow on the mail selecting button of the camera that is indicated by a flower icon. Once in this setting you can take close up pictures that all be detailed and clear.

Battery Placement- The batteries are located on the underside of the camera hidden under a sliding cap.

SD Card- The SD card can be inserted and removes in the sliding compartment that also holds the batteries

When You're Done- When you're done taking pictures you should put the lens cap back on and make sure to wrap the camera strap around itself to ensure safe storing.

5 Frame Photo Story

History Of Photography

1800- Thomas Wedgewod creates "sun pictures" by placing objects on leather that was treated by silver nitrate. But the images faded quickly.

1834- Permanent negatives are created by Henry Fox Talbot, by coating paper in silver chloride and a salt solution. He then created positive images by contact printing the negatives onto another paper.

1888- First Kodak camera is created. It contained 20-feet of paper, enough for 100 2.5 inch pictures

Feature Photographer- Robert Capa

He was born October 22, 1913, into a jewish family in Budapest. He was a Hungarian/Spanish/WW2 War Photographer. He co-founded Magnum Photos in Paris, the first corporation for worldwide freelance photography. He died by stepping on a land mine in a war. He also photographed D-day but 3.5 of his 4 rolls of film were ruined while being developed (the drier was on too hot)

Law and Ethics of Photojournalism

The law states that all published pictures must be accurate and nor falsely portrayed or captioned. If a picture violates these guidelines, it can be categorized as Defamatory and the plaintiff must provide proof that it is false and harmfull. But besides the law there are sertain ethics that photojournalist are encouraged to follow to ensure the validity of the source. These ethics include resisting staged photos and not accepting gifts or payment from people hoping to influence their photos.
