      Making the exposure darker during printing or editing.

    • B.

      Balancing the light meter.

    • C.

      Making the exposure lighter during printing or editing.

    • D.

      Changing the ISO.

    Correct Answer
    C. Making the exposure lighter during printing or editing.
    Explanation
    Dodging in photography refers to the technique of selectively lightening specific areas of an image during the printing or editing process. This is done to balance the overall exposure and highlight certain details or subjects in the photograph. By selectively increasing the exposure in specific areas, the photographer can create a more visually pleasing and dynamic image.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Before digital photography, photographs were taken with chemicals that reacted to light to create a permanent image of something? 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Before digital photography, photographs were indeed taken using chemicals that reacted to light to create a permanent image. This process, known as analog or film photography, involved using light-sensitive film or paper coated with silver halide crystals. When exposed to light, these crystals would undergo a chemical reaction, forming a latent image. This latent image would then be developed using various chemicals to create a visible photograph. Therefore, the statement "True" accurately reflects the process of photography before the digital era.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which shutter speed is faster? 

    • A.

      1/60

    • B.

      1/400

    • C.

      1/1000

    • D.

      1/30

    Correct Answer
    C. 1/1000
    Explanation
    The shutter speed determines how long the camera's shutter remains open, allowing light to enter and expose the camera sensor. A faster shutter speed means that the shutter remains open for a shorter amount of time, resulting in less light being captured. In this case, 1/1000 is the fastest shutter speed among the given options, as it allows the least amount of light to enter the camera compared to the other shutter speeds listed.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A higher ISO will result in what? 

    • A.

      Brighter exposure

    • B.

      More noise or pixelation

    • C.

      Reduce the need for a flash

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    A higher ISO will result in a brighter exposure because it increases the sensitivity of the camera's image sensor to light. However, it also leads to more noise or pixelation in the image as the sensor amplifies the signal. Additionally, a higher ISO can reduce the need for a flash as it allows the camera to capture more light in low-light situations. Therefore, all of the given options are correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Place a checkmark next to the terms that directly affect exposure. (hint: there's 3) 

    • A.

      F-stop

    • B.

      AF/MF

    • C.

      Shutter speed

    • D.

      ISO

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. F-stop
    C. Shutter speed
    D. ISO
    Explanation
    The terms f-stop, shutter speed, and ISO directly affect exposure in photography. The f-stop refers to the aperture setting, which controls the amount of light that enters the camera. A lower f-stop allows more light, resulting in a brighter exposure. Shutter speed determines the length of time the camera's sensor is exposed to light. A longer shutter speed allows more light, resulting in a brighter exposure. ISO refers to the sensitivity of the camera's sensor to light. A higher ISO setting makes the sensor more sensitive to light, resulting in a brighter exposure.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Digital photography no longer needs light to take a photograph. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Digital photography still requires light to take a photograph. Without light, the camera sensor cannot capture any image information, resulting in a completely black or dark photograph. Light is essential for the camera sensor to detect and record the incoming light rays, which then get converted into digital data. Therefore, the statement that digital photography no longer needs light to take a photograph is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which shutter speed lets in more light? 

    • A.

      1/30

    • B.

      1/60

    • C.

      1/400

    • D.

      1/1000

    Correct Answer
    A. 1/30
    Explanation
    A shutter speed of 1/30 lets in more light compared to the other options given. Shutter speed refers to the length of time the camera's shutter remains open to capture light. The longer the shutter remains open, the more light is allowed to enter the camera. Therefore, a slower shutter speed like 1/30 allows more light to be captured, resulting in a brighter image.

    Which camera function allows you to view photos you've already taken? 

    • A.

      F-stop

    • B.

      ISO

    • C.

      Aperture

    • D.

      Playback

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. Playback
    Explanation
    The camera function that allows you to view photos you've already taken is called "playback." This feature allows you to review and preview the images you have captured on your camera's screen. It allows you to assess the quality of the photos, delete unwanted ones, and navigate through your photo library. The other options listed (f-stop, ISO, aperture) are camera settings related to exposure and image quality, but they do not specifically enable you to view previously taken photos.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    You want to take a photo with a diffused background.  Which of the following actions will accomplish this? 

    • A.

      Decrease the f-stop

    • B.

      Shorten the shutter speed

    • C.

      Increase the ISO

    • D.

      Add flash

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Decrease the f-stop
    Explanation
    Decreasing the f-stop will accomplish a diffused background in a photo. The f-stop controls the depth of field, which determines how much of the photo is in focus. By decreasing the f-stop, the aperture opens wider, allowing more light to enter the camera and creating a shallow depth of field. This results in a blurred background, making the subject stand out more. Shortening the shutter speed, increasing the ISO, and adding flash do not directly affect the background blur.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which camera is orientation long horizontally and short vertically? 

    • A.

      Landscape

    • B.

      Portrait

    • C.

      Neither

    • D.

      Both

    Correct Answer
    A. Landscape
    Explanation
    Landscape orientation refers to a camera setting where the image is wider horizontally and shorter vertically. This is often used to capture wide scenes, such as landscapes, where the width of the image is more important than the height. In contrast, portrait orientation is the opposite, with the image being taller vertically and narrower horizontally. Therefore, the correct answer is landscape.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which compositional technique places the subject away from the center of the photograph? 

    • A.

      Rule of Thirds

    • B.

      Leading Lines

    • C.

      Framing the Subject

    • D.

      Filling the Frame

    • E.

      Diffused Background

    Correct Answer
    A. Rule of Thirds
    Explanation
    The Rule of Thirds is a compositional technique that divides the photograph into nine equal parts using two horizontal and two vertical lines. The subject is then placed along these lines or at the intersections, rather than in the center of the photograph. This technique creates a more visually interesting and balanced composition by adding depth and allowing the viewer's eye to move around the image.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    You want to take a photo with blurred motion.  Which of the following actions will accomplish this? 

    • A.

      Increase the f-stop

    • B.

      Lengthen the shutter speed

    • C.

      Increase the ISO

    • D.

      Change MF to AF

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Lengthen the shutter speed
    Explanation
    Lengthening the shutter speed will accomplish taking a photo with blurred motion. When the shutter speed is increased, the camera's sensor is exposed to light for a longer period of time, allowing moving subjects to appear blurred in the final image. This technique is commonly used in photography to capture motion blur in subjects such as flowing water, moving vehicles, or people in motion. By lengthening the shutter speed, the camera captures the movement over a longer duration, resulting in a blurred effect.

    • C.

      Increase the ISO

    • D.

      Add flash

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Increase the f-stop
    Explanation
    Increasing the f-stop will result in a larger aperture, allowing more light to enter the camera. This will increase the depth of field, which means that both the subject and the background will be in focus. Therefore, increasing the f-stop will help capture the background in the photo.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Which type of zoom uses the camera's lens to magnify the image? 

    • A.

      Optical

    • B.

      Digital

    • C.

      Neither

    • D.

      Both

    Correct Answer
    A. Optical
    Explanation
    Optical zoom uses the camera's lens to physically adjust the focal length and magnify the image, resulting in a higher quality zoom without any loss of resolution. Digital zoom, on the other hand, simply enlarges the pixels in the image, resulting in a lower quality zoom with potential loss of detail. Therefore, the correct answer is optical, as it specifically involves the camera's lens in magnifying the image.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Both AF and MF affect what part of the photo? 

    • A.

      The sharpness of the subject

    • B.

      Depth of field

    • C.

      Exposure

    • D.

      Light balance

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. The sharpness of the subject
    Explanation
    AF (Auto Focus) and MF (Manual Focus) both affect the sharpness of the subject in a photo. AF automatically adjusts the focus to ensure that the subject is sharp, while MF allows the photographer to manually adjust the focus to achieve the desired sharpness. The other options, such as depth of field, exposure, and light balance, are not directly affected by AF or MF.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    Which term describes the area of a photograph that is in focus? 

    • A.

      Aperture

    • B.

      Focus

    • C.

      Depth of field

    • D.

      Exposure

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Depth of field
    Explanation
    Depth of field refers to the area in a photograph that appears sharp and in focus. It is determined by the combination of factors such as the aperture setting, the distance between the camera and the subject, and the focal length of the lens. A shallow depth of field means that only a small portion of the image is in focus, while a deep depth of field means that a larger area is in focus. Therefore, depth of field is the correct term to describe the area of a photograph that is in focus.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Which term describes photos where the photographer carefully positions the subject? 

    • A.

      Posed

    • B.

      Candid

    • C.

      Planned

    • D.

      Freestyle

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Posed
    Explanation
    The term "posed" accurately describes photos where the photographer carefully positions the subject. This means that the photographer has intentionally arranged the subject in a specific manner, often giving them instructions on how to pose or positioning them in a certain way to achieve a desired composition or aesthetic. This is in contrast to candid photos, which capture spontaneous and unposed moments, or photos that are planned in advance with a specific concept or idea in mind. "Freestyle" and "none of the above" do not accurately describe the careful positioning of the subject in a photo.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Aperture/f-stop affects what part(s) of a photo? 

    • A.

      Depth of field

    • B.

      Exposure

    • C.

      Blurred motion

    • D.

      Both A & B

    • E.

      Both A & C

    • F.

      Both B & C

    Correct Answer
    D. Both A & B
    Explanation
    The aperture or f-stop setting affects both the depth of field and the exposure of a photo. Depth of field refers to the range of distance in a photo that appears sharp and in focus. A larger aperture (smaller f-stop number) creates a shallower depth of field, with only a small portion of the image in focus, while a smaller aperture (larger f-stop number) creates a larger depth of field, with more of the image in focus. Additionally, the aperture setting also affects the exposure of the photo, as it controls the amount of light that enters the camera. A larger aperture allows more light to enter, resulting in a brighter exposure, while a smaller aperture allows less light, resulting in a darker exposure.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Ancient civilizations did indeed use camera obscuras to form images on walls in darkened rooms. A camera obscura is an optical device that consists of a small hole or aperture through which light enters a darkened room or box. The light rays pass through the hole and project an upside-down image of the outside scene onto a surface inside the room. This technique was used by various ancient civilizations, such as the Chinese and the Greeks, to observe and study the world around them. It was an early form of image projection and contributed to the development of photography.

    Which compositional technique uses a blurry background and a sharp subject that's in focus? 

    • A.

      Rule of Thirds

    • B.

      Leading Lines

    • C.

      Framing the Subject

    • D.

      Filling the Frame

    • E.

      Diffused Background

    Correct Answer
    E. Diffused Background
    Explanation
    Diffused Background is a compositional technique that involves creating a blurry background while keeping the main subject in sharp focus. This technique helps to draw attention to the subject by separating it from the background, creating a sense of depth and visual interest. By using a shallow depth of field or techniques like bokeh, the background becomes soft and out of focus, allowing the subject to stand out and become the main focal point of the image.

    Shutter speed affects what part(s) of a photo? 

    • A.

      Depth of field

    • B.

      Exposure

    • C.

      Blurred motion

    • E.

      Both A & C

    • F.

      Both B & C

    Correct Answer
    F. Both B & C
    Explanation
    Shutter speed affects both exposure and blurred motion in a photo. The exposure is determined by the amount of time the shutter is open, with a longer shutter speed resulting in a brighter image and a shorter shutter speed resulting in a darker image. Blurred motion occurs when the shutter speed is slow, allowing moving subjects to appear blurry in the photo. Therefore, both B (exposure) and C (blurred motion) are affected by the shutter speed.

    Which term describes unposed photos when the subject is not aware of being photographed? 

    • A.

      Posed

    • B.

      Unplanned

    • C.

      Candid

    • D.

      Freestyle

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Candid
    Explanation
    The term "candid" accurately describes unposed photos when the subject is not aware of being photographed. "Posed" refers to photos where the subject is aware and intentionally posing for the camera. "Unplanned" and "freestyle" do not specifically capture the essence of the subject being unaware of the photograph. Therefore, the correct term is "candid."

    Correct Answer
    D. Exposure
    Explanation
    Exposure is the term that best describes the brightness of a photograph. It refers to the amount of light that reaches the camera's image sensor or film. A properly exposed photograph has a balanced amount of light, resulting in a well-lit and clear image. Adjusting the exposure settings, such as shutter speed, ISO, and aperture, allows photographers to control the brightness of their photos.

    On a digital SLR camera, holding the shutter button halfway down will help focus an image. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Holding the shutter button halfway down on a digital SLR camera helps to focus an image because it activates the camera's autofocus system. By pressing the button halfway, the camera measures the distance between the camera and the subject and adjusts the lens accordingly to ensure that the subject is in focus. This allows the photographer to preview and adjust the focus before fully pressing the shutter button to capture the image.

      Single Lens Reflex

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. Single Lens Reflex
    Explanation
    SLR stands for Single Lens Reflex. This refers to a type of camera that uses a mirror and prism system to allow the photographer to see exactly what will be captured in the final image through the camera's viewfinder. When the shutter button is pressed, the mirror flips up, allowing the light to pass through the lens and onto the image sensor or film. This design provides a more accurate and precise representation of the final image compared to other types of cameras.

    Correct Answer
    B. Focus
    Explanation
    Focus refers to the sharpness and clarity of the subject in a photograph. When an image is in focus, the subject appears clear and well-defined, whereas when it is out of focus, the subject appears blurry and lacks detail. Achieving proper focus is essential in photography to ensure that the subject is accurately captured and the intended message or story is effectively conveyed.

    B. Leading Lines
    Explanation
    Leading lines is a compositional technique that uses lines within a photograph to guide the viewer's eye and create a sense of depth and movement. These lines can be actual objects such as roads, fences, or buildings, or they can be implied lines created by the arrangement of elements within the frame. By strategically placing these lines, the photographer can direct the viewer's attention to specific areas of the image and create a visual journey that leads the eye in, out, and around the photograph.
