    Which angle makes the subject look more powerful?

    • A.

      Low

    • B.

      Eye

    • C.

      High

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Low
    Explanation
    A low angle makes the subject look more powerful because it creates a sense of dominance and authority. By shooting from a lower perspective, the subject appears larger and more imposing, which can convey strength and control. This angle is commonly used in photography and film to enhance the subject's presence and make them appear more influential.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which angle makes the subject look weak?

    • A.

      Low

    • B.

      Eye

    • C.

      High

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. High
    Explanation
    A high angle makes the subject look weak because it involves shooting the subject from above, which can create a sense of vulnerability or powerlessness. This angle can make the subject appear smaller, less significant, or submissive. It is often used in film and photography to convey a sense of dominance or superiority over the subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which angle places the subject in a neutral zone?

    • A.

      Low

    • B.

      Eye

    • C.

      High

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Eye
    Explanation
    The angle that places the subject in a neutral zone is the "eye" angle. This angle refers to capturing the subject at eye level, which is considered to be a neutral and balanced perspective. It avoids any distortion or bias that may occur from shooting from a low or high angle. Therefore, the "eye" angle is the best option for placing the subject in a neutral zone.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which zoom is the best zoom?

    • A.

      Optical

    • B.

      Digital

    • C.

      No difference between the two to the naked eye

    Correct Answer
    A. Optical
    Explanation
    The correct answer is optical. Optical zoom refers to the physical movement of lens elements to zoom in or out, resulting in better image quality and clarity. Digital zoom, on the other hand, simply enlarges the pixels of the image, resulting in a loss of detail and image quality. Therefore, optical zoom is considered superior to digital zoom in terms of image quality.

    Light
    Lighting
    Light
    Lite
    Explanation
    Light is the most important element in photography because it directly affects the exposure, color, and mood of the photograph. The way light interacts with the subject can create highlights, shadows, and texture, adding depth and dimension to the image. Different qualities of light, such as natural sunlight or artificial studio lighting, can also dramatically change the overall look and feel of the photograph. Understanding how to manipulate and control light is essential for capturing visually compelling and impactful images.

    The best time of day to take a photo outside during optimal weather:

    • A.

      Hour before sunset

    • B.

      Hour before sunrise

    • C.

      Hour after sunset

    • D.

      Hour after sunrise

    • E.

      Noon

    Correct Answer
    D. Hour after sunrise
    Explanation
    The hour after sunrise is the best time of day to take a photo outside during optimal weather because the light is soft and golden, creating a warm and flattering effect on the subject. The sun is low in the sky, casting long shadows and adding depth to the image. Additionally, the air is usually calm in the morning, resulting in less wind and better overall conditions for photography.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which is the worst time of day to take a photo outside?

    • A.

      Hour before sunset

    • B.

      Hour after sunset

    • C.

      Hour before sunrise

    • D.

      Hour after sunrise

    • E.

      Noon

    Correct Answer
    E. Noon
    Explanation
    Taking a photo outside during noon is considered the worst time of day because the sun is directly overhead, causing harsh and unflattering shadows. The lighting conditions during this time can wash out colors and create a lack of depth in the photo. It is generally recommended to take photos during the "golden hour," which is the hour before sunset or after sunrise, when the lighting is softer and creates a warm, golden glow.

Editing involves making adjustments to the image using software tools such as cropping, adjusting brightness or contrast, removing blemishes, or applying filters. It allows the photographer to enhance or alter the image according to their creative vision or to achieve a desired effect.

    Which line gives the feeling of action and movement?

    • A.

      Horizontal

    • B.

      Vertical

    • C.

      Diagonal

    Correct Answer
    C. Diagonal
    Explanation
    The line that gives the feeling of action and movement is diagonal. Diagonal lines are slanted and create a sense of energy and motion. They can suggest movement or direction, and are often used in dynamic compositions to convey a sense of action or tension. Horizontal and vertical lines, on the other hand, are more static and stable in nature.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which line gives the feeling of peace?

    • A.

      Horizontal

    • B.

      Vertical

    • C.

      Diagonal

    Correct Answer
    A. Horizontal
    Explanation
    The line that gives the feeling of peace is horizontal. This is because horizontal lines are usually associated with stability, calmness, and tranquility. Horizontal lines are often found in nature, such as the horizon, which creates a sense of peacefulness and serenity. Additionally, horizontal lines are commonly used in art and design to create a sense of balance and harmony, further enhancing the feeling of peace.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Which line gives the feeling of power and growth?

    • A.

      Horizontal

    • B.

      Vertical

    • C.

      Diagonal

    Correct Answer
    B. Vertical
    Explanation
    The line that gives the feeling of power and growth is vertical. Vertical lines are associated with strength, stability, and upward movement. They create a sense of height and dominance, resembling growth and power. Unlike horizontal lines that suggest calmness and stability, vertical lines convey a sense of energy and authority. Diagonal lines, on the other hand, can imply movement and dynamism but may not necessarily evoke the same feeling of power and growth as vertical lines do.

      Eyeball

    Correct Answer
    B. Macro
    Explanation
    The correct answer is macro. This is because macro photography involves capturing close-up images of small subjects, often revealing details that are not visible to the naked eye. In this case, the genre of photography is likely macro as it focuses on capturing the intricate details of the subject, which appears to be an illusion or an eyeball.

      2x

    • B.

      10x

    Correct Answer
    B. 10x
    Explanation
    A zoom magnification of 10x is better than 2x because it provides a higher level of magnification, allowing for a closer and more detailed view of the subject. With 10x zoom, one can see objects or details that may not be visible with only 2x zoom. This higher magnification can be particularly useful in various applications such as photography, microscopy, or bird watching, where capturing fine details is important.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    If a camera has a 10x zoom, the type of zoom it has is:

    • A.

      Digital

    • B.

      Optical

    • C.

      Neither

    Correct Answer
    B. Optical
    Explanation
    A camera with a 10x zoom has an optical zoom. Optical zoom refers to the camera's ability to physically adjust the lens to zoom in and out, providing a higher quality and more accurate zoom compared to digital zoom. Digital zoom, on the other hand, simply enlarges the pixels in the image, resulting in a loss of image quality. Therefore, the correct answer is optical.
