Photography Final

True/False
Indicate whether the statement is true or false.
 

 1. 

In film photography, a negative reverses the light and dark areas of the finished print.
 

 2. 

A single piece of film is both an imaging medium and a storage device.
 

 3. 

The human eye automatically corrects for colors in different types of light.
 

 4. 

Different types of light bulbs give off different color of light.
 

 5. 

SLR cameras have more settings than  point-and-shoot cameras
 

 6. 

In auto mode, the camera chooses all settings, and the photographer makes none
 

 7. 

Pressing the shutter button down half-way will adjust the camera for vibration
 

 8. 

In Auto mode, the camera automatically determines if flash is needed
 

 9. 

Stabilization hardware will drain the battery faster than not using stabilization hardware
 

 10. 

On a SLR camera, the status display shows speed, apeture, and ISO settings
 

 11. 

Pixels are divided up into a grid
 

 12. 

White balance adjusts for the temperature of the ambient light in the photo
 

 13. 

There is a reciprocity between aperture and speed settings
 

 14. 

The higher the ISO number setting, the less noise shows in the photo
 

 15. 

If you double the speed (denominator number) setting, you also double the amount of light on the sensor
 

 16. 

If you double the aperture number setting, you double the amount of light hitting the sensor
 

 17. 

The camera doesn’t automatically focus until the shutter button is pressed half way.
 

 18. 

One way to lock the focus is to press the shutter button down part way, then flip over to manual focus.
 

 19. 

Shooting the same scene with slightly different settings is called bracketing
 

 20. 

Burst mode is most useful in action sports
 

 21. 

You should think of the “play of light” when considering a photo opportunity.
 

 22. 

It’s the light that should compel you to a scene, not the subject.
 

 23. 

The human eye is more receptive to color than it is to luminance.
 

 24. 

The best time to take photos is mid-day, because the sun is at it’s highest.
 

 25. 

It’s best not to shoot on cloudy days, as there isn’t enough contrast to take a good photograph.
 

 26. 

It’s better to look at a landmark location and not just what it looks like, but think of details of how it makes you feel.
 

 27. 

Larger apertures (smaller number) yield shallower depth of field
 

 28. 

One of the most often violated rules of good composition is not paying enough attention to the subject and it’s relation to the background
 

 29. 

Grayscale photos are never as compelling as the same ones in color
 

 30. 

Since grayscale photos are all about tone, it’s important to have as few shades of gray as possible in you photo
 

 31. 

In most landscape photos, you will use a high aperture setting  (small aperture)
 

 32. 

When taking a series of shots for a panorama, subsequent shots must overlap with the previous shot
 

 33. 

Tv mode setting allows you to adjust the aperture setting just by moving the wheel
 

 34. 

When the highlights of your photo are “clipped”, you should try again using a wider aperture
 

 35. 

If the photo is dark, the histogram will be weighted to the right
 

 36. 

Bracketing is used to try to get the exposure just right
 

 37. 

Before you get into the “artistry” of photography, you become competent in the “technical” aspect first
 

 38. 

A diffuser is used to reflect light towards the subject to be photographed
 

 39. 

To cut the harshness of bright sunlight, place the subject between yourself and the sun and use a reflector to get even light on the subject
 

 40. 

A fill flash can best be used in bright sunlight
 

 41. 

Tilting the flash allows you to bounce the light off the cieling or walls
 

 42. 

Built-in flash units are more flexible in use than remote flash units
