Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    How can you tell if a photograph has shallow or deep depth of field? 

  • 2. 

    What is the name of the dial that controls the modes on a camera? 

    • A.

      The camera modes dial

    • B.

      The almighty dial

    • C.

      The settings dial

    • D.

      The circle thingy

    Correct Answer
    A. The camera modes dial
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The camera modes dial". This dial is responsible for controlling the various modes on a camera, allowing the user to switch between different shooting modes such as manual, aperture priority, shutter priority, and more. It is an essential component of the camera's interface, providing easy access to different shooting options and allowing photographers to adjust their settings according to their preferences and the desired outcome of their photographs.

    The amount of light or darkness in a photograph is called. . . 

    • A.

      Contrast

    • B.

      Light or darkness

    • C.

      Exposure

    • D.

      Perfect

    Correct Answer
    C. Exposure
    Explanation
    Exposure refers to the amount of light or darkness in a photograph. It is a crucial element in photography as it determines the overall brightness and darkness of the image. Proper exposure ensures that the details in the photograph are well-balanced, with neither overexposed (too bright) nor underexposed (too dark) areas. By adjusting the exposure settings, such as aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, photographers can control the amount of light that enters the camera and achieve the desired level of brightness in their photographs.

    What is another word for aperture?

    • A.

      Apple tree

    • B.

      F-stop

    • C.

      Light

    • D.

      Dark

    Correct Answer
    B. F-stop
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "f-stop" because in photography, an aperture refers to the opening in a camera lens that controls the amount of light entering the camera. The term "f-stop" is commonly used to describe different settings of the aperture, indicating the size of the opening. Therefore, "f-stop" is another word for aperture in the context of photography.

    What controls how blurry or clear a photograph will be? 

    • A.

      Iso

    • B.

      Aperture

    • C.

      Blur

    • D.

      Shutter speed

    Correct Answer
    D. Shutter speed
    Explanation
    The shutter speed of a camera controls how long the camera's shutter remains open, determining the amount of time that light is allowed to enter the camera and expose the image sensor. A faster shutter speed will result in a clearer photograph, freezing the motion and reducing blurriness. On the other hand, a slower shutter speed will allow more light to enter the camera, resulting in a blurrier photograph, especially if there is any movement in the scene being photographed.

    Which is a measure of sensitivity in a DSLR? 

    • A.

      Shutter speed

    • B.

      Aperture

    • C.

      ISO

    • D.

      Camera modes dial

    Correct Answer
    C. ISO
    Explanation
    ISO is a measure of sensitivity in a DSLR camera. It determines how sensitive the camera's image sensor is to light. A higher ISO setting makes the sensor more sensitive, allowing for better performance in low light conditions but also increasing the amount of digital noise in the image. Conversely, a lower ISO setting makes the sensor less sensitive, resulting in less noise but requiring more light for proper exposure. Therefore, ISO is a crucial factor in adjusting the camera's sensitivity to light and capturing well-exposed images in different lighting situations.

    Would a shutter speed of 1/50 in an outdoor setting during the day give you a....

    • A.

      Dark photo

    • B.

      Blurry photo

    • C.

      Over exposed photo (too bright)

    • D.

      Grainy photo

    Correct Answer
    C. Over exposed photo (too bright)
    Explanation
    A shutter speed of 1/50 in an outdoor setting during the day would give you an overexposed photo (too bright). This is because 1/50 is a relatively slow shutter speed which allows more light to enter the camera sensor. In a well-lit outdoor environment, this prolonged exposure time would result in an abundance of light being captured, causing the photo to appear excessively bright and washed out.

    A photograph taken up close to make a tiny object appear large is called. . .

    Correct Answer
    macro
    Explanation
    A photograph taken up close to make a tiny object appear large is called macro photography. In macro photography, the photographer captures intricate details of small subjects, revealing textures and patterns that are not easily visible to the naked eye. This technique is commonly used in capturing close-ups of insects, flowers, and other small objects. The term "macro" is derived from the Greek word "makros," meaning large, which accurately describes the purpose of this type of photography.

    A DSLR camera is a camera that uses black and white film. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      FALSE - A DSLR camera is a digital camera

    Correct Answer
    B. FALSE - A DSLR camera is a digital camera
    Explanation
    A DSLR camera is not a camera that uses black and white film, but rather a digital camera. DSLR stands for Digital Single-Lens Reflex, which means it uses a digital sensor to capture images instead of film. This type of camera offers advanced features and interchangeable lenses, making it popular among professional photographers.

    Correct Answer
    photographer

    A person who takes photos for a living or as a hobby is called a photographer. They are skilled in capturing moments and creating visual art through the use of a camera. Photographers may specialize in various genres such as portrait, landscape, wildlife, or fashion photography. They have a keen eye for composition, lighting, and storytelling, and they use their technical knowledge to produce high-quality images.

    To freeze an image of a person or object moving quickly, which would be the BEST shutter speed?

    • A.

      1/50

    • B.

      1/100

    • C.

      1/500

    • D.

      1 minute

    Correct Answer
    A. 1/50
    Explanation
    A shutter speed of 1/50 would be the best option to freeze an image of a person or object moving quickly. This is because a faster shutter speed allows for less time for light to enter the camera, resulting in a sharper and more frozen image. Slower shutter speeds, such as 1/100 or 1/500, would allow more light to enter the camera and may result in motion blur. A shutter speed of 1 minute is too slow and would result in a heavily blurred image.
