      Aperture

    • B.

      Focal plane

    • C.

      Focal length

    • D.

      Depth of field

    • E.

      Shutter

    Correct Answer
    B. Focal plane
    Explanation
    The term "focal plane" refers to the specific plane in which the image is formed by the lens. It is the point where light rays converge to create a focused image. In photography, the focal plane is important because it determines the sharpness and clarity of the image. By adjusting the distance between the lens and the focal plane, photographers can control the depth of field and ensure that the subject is in focus. Therefore, the term "focal plane" best matches the given picture.

    What decides the angle of view of a pinhole camera?

    • A.

      Depth of field

    • B.

      Focal length

    • C.

      Focal plane

    • D.

      Aperture

    • E.

      Shutter

    Correct Answer
    B. Focal length
    Explanation
    The angle of view of a pinhole camera is determined by the focal length. The focal length refers to the distance between the pinhole and the image plane. A shorter focal length will result in a wider angle of view, while a longer focal length will result in a narrower angle of view. Therefore, the focal length directly influences the extent of the scene that can be captured by the pinhole camera.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which item is not required for a pinhole camera?

    • A.

      Aperture

    • B.

      Shutter

    • C.

      Light tight container

    • D.

      Lens

    • E.

      Photo-sensitive material.

    Correct Answer
    D. Lens
    Explanation
    A pinhole camera is a simple camera that works without a lens. Instead of a lens, it uses a tiny aperture (or pinhole) to allow light to enter the camera. The light then creates an inverted image on the photo-sensitive material inside the camera. Therefore, a lens is not required for a pinhole camera to function properly.

    • E.

      None

    Correct Answer
    D. Subject blur
    Explanation
    The term "subject blur" best matches the picture because it refers to a situation where the subject in the photograph appears blurry while the background remains in focus. This effect is often achieved by using a shallow depth of field, where the focus is intentionally set on the background or foreground, causing the subject to appear blurred.

    • E.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Camera blur
    Explanation
    The term "camera blur" refers to the blurriness or lack of sharpness in an image caused by the movement of the camera while taking the picture. This can happen when the camera is not held steady or when there is a slow shutter speed. In the given question, the picture is likely to have a blurry appearance due to camera movement, hence the term "camera blur" is the best match.

    Which set of items controls the exposure of a photograph?

    • A.

      Focal length and focal plane

    • B.

      Depth of field and aperture

    • C.

      Shutter and aperture

    • D.

      Focal length and shutter

    • E.

      Focal plane and aperture

    Correct Answer
    C. Shutter and aperture
    Explanation
    The exposure of a photograph is controlled by the combination of the shutter and aperture settings. The shutter determines the length of time that the camera's sensor is exposed to light, while the aperture controls the amount of light that enters the camera through the lens. By adjusting these two settings, photographers can control the amount of light that reaches the camera sensor, thereby affecting the overall exposure of the photograph.

    Which statement is false?

    • A.

      You must agitate the developer continuously during the processing.

    • B.

      It is not necessary to agitate the fix.

    • C.

      It is okay to expose your print to light after the fix step.

    • D.

      You must never get stop in the developer tray.

    • E.

      You nust never open your bag under white light.

    Correct Answer
    B. It is not necessary to agitate the fix.
    Explanation
    The given statement "It is not necessary to agitate the fix" is false. Agitation is a crucial step in the fixing process in photography. Agitating the fix ensures that the fixer solution reaches all parts of the film or paper evenly, helping to remove any remaining light-sensitive chemicals and stabilize the image. Without agitation, there is a risk of uneven fixing and incomplete removal of chemicals, which can lead to image deterioration over time. Therefore, it is necessary to agitate the fix during the processing.

    • C.

      Camera blur

    • D.

      Subject blur

    • E.

      None

    Correct Answer
    A. Long depth of field
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "long depth of field." This term refers to a photography technique where a large portion of the image, from the foreground to the background, is in sharp focus. In other words, objects at various distances from the camera are all clear and detailed. This is opposite to "short depth of field," where only a small portion of the image is in focus, creating a blurred effect in the foreground or background. "Camera blur" and "subject blur" are not applicable in this context, and "none" suggests that none of the options are correct, which is not the case.

    • D.

      You must use a tray to transport a wet print.

    • E.

      Never put anything wet on the countertops in the darkroom.

    Correct Answer
    C. The tongs may be used in any of the trays.
    Explanation
    The statement "The tongs may be used in any of the trays" is false because tongs should not be used in any of the trays. Tongs are specifically designed to transfer paper from one chemical to the next, not to be used in the trays themselves. Using tongs in the trays can contaminate the chemicals and affect the quality of the prints. It is important to use a tray to transport a wet print and to always squeegee before drying the photo paper. Additionally, wet items should never be placed on the countertops in the darkroom to maintain cleanliness and prevent damage.
