### Which f-stop give you the least depth of field in a photograph?

• A.

16

• B.

1.8

• C.

22

• D.

64

B. 1.8
Explanation
A smaller f-stop number, such as 1.8, gives you the least depth of field in a photograph. This means that only a small portion of the image will be in sharp focus, while the rest will be blurred or out of focus. This can be used creatively to draw attention to a specific subject or to create a sense of depth in the image.

### To freeze action in a photograph, which shutter speed would work best?

• A.

1/4

• B.

1/250

• C.

1/30

• D.

1/20

B. 1/250
Explanation
A shutter speed of 1/250 would work best to freeze action in a photograph. This is because 1/250 is a relatively fast shutter speed, which means that the camera's shutter will open and close very quickly. This fast shutter speed will help to capture the subject in sharp detail, freezing any movement and preventing motion blur. Slower shutter speeds, such as 1/4, 1/30, or 1/20, would not be as effective in freezing action as they would allow more time for movement to occur, resulting in potential blur in the image.

### If you want to blur an image, do you use a slower or faster shutter speed? _________

• A.

Slower

• B.

Faster

A. Slower
Explanation
When you want to blur an image, you use a slower shutter speed. This is because a slower shutter speed allows the camera's sensor to capture more light over a longer period of time, resulting in a longer exposure. This longer exposure time allows for any movement in the scene to be captured as motion blur, thus creating a blurred effect in the image. On the other hand, a faster shutter speed would freeze the motion and result in a sharper image.

### Which f stop gives you the greatest depth of field?

• A.

22

• B.

16

• C.

2.8

• D.

11

A. 22
Explanation
A smaller aperture (represented by a larger f-stop number) such as f/22 gives you the greatest depth of field. This means that more of the image, from the foreground to the background, will be in focus.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### Both the aperture and the _______________ play a major part in creating a proper exposure.

shutter
Explanation
Both the aperture and the shutter play a major part in creating a proper exposure. The aperture refers to the opening in the lens that controls the amount of light entering the camera, while the shutter is responsible for determining the duration of time that the light is allowed to reach the camera sensor. By adjusting the aperture and shutter speed, photographers can control the amount of light that reaches the sensor, resulting in a properly exposed image.
