black and white photos

final thought

This class is very fun. I really enjoy myself in here. Most of the time I don’t want this class to be over. I feel like this class is too short. However, I really enjoy fixing pictures using Photoshop. But the thing that I like the most is the button assignment. I think it’s very easy to do and you also have fun at the same time. The worst experience I have in this class is the CD Cover assignment. It so hard that I used so many days of class time to work on it but at last I haven’t done anything at all. Even now I’m still struggle how to make the CD Cover. Moreover, because this is the first time that I get to use all these photo programs so maybe that’s why I struggle a lot. But that’s okay. I’m learning, right? And at least I have learned something about photos and how to fix them during my time in here. Thank you for all of your help, Mr. Larson. Hope to see you again next time I have this class again.

about Adward Weston photogragh

1. Edward Henry Weston was born in Highland Park, Illinois, and raised in Chicago. He attended Oakland Grammar School and received his first camera, a Bull's-Eye #2, from his father in 1902. He began photographing in his spare time in Chicago parks while working as an errand boy and salesman for Marshall Field and Company. In 1906 Weston traveled to California where he worked as a door-to-door portrait photographer. From 1908 to 1911 he attended the Illinois College of Photography, spending his summers in California working as a printer in photographic studios. In 1923, Weston closed his portrait photography studio in Tropico (now Glendale), California, and move to Mexico, as he wrote in his journal, ―to start life anew.

2. Edward Weston photographing natural landscapes and forms such as artichoke, shells, and rocks, using large-format cameras and available light. His legacy includes several thousand carefully composed, superbly printed photographs. The subtle use of tones and the sculptural formal design of his works have become the standards by which much later photographic practice has been judged. Veggies is one of Edward Weston's more famous photographs.

about Ansel Adams photograph

1. Ansel Adams’ first experiences with photography were during a family trip to Yosemite in 1916, which his father gave him a Brownie Box Camera. He joined the Sierra Club in 1920, which was a basic introduction to the concepts of wilderness and conservation. While on Sierra Club outings, he took pictures of nature and realized on a deeper level the beauty of nature. He also developed an understanding of art on one of these outings: Art is both love and friendship and understanding: the desire to give. It is not charity, which is the giving of things. It is more than kindness, which is the giving of self. It is both the taking and giving of beauty, the turning out to the light the inner folds of the awareness of the spirit. It is the recreation on another plane of the realities of the world; the tragic and wonderful realities of earth and men, and of the interrelations of these. It was during these years and experiences with nature and photography that he decided he wanted to become a photographer.

2. For his images, he developed the zone system, a way to determine proper exposure and adjust the contrast of the final print. The resulting clarity and depth characterized his photographs. He is famous for his black and white photography of nature and landscapes, photo Autumn Moon, Cathedral Peak and Lake, Frozen Lake and Cliffs, and many more…

black and white photography questions

1.The three basic elements of a camera are an optical element (the lens), a chemical element (the film) and a mechanical element (the camera body itself).
2.SLR camera is the camera with a Single Lens Reflex camera the scene being photographed is reflected onto the surface of the film by a mirror.
3.The purpose of a camera’s aperture is to control the amount of light that reaches a digital camera sensor.
4.Shutter speed on a camera also controls the amount of light reaches the film for a exposure.
5.To get the right exposure for a picture, you have to balance film speed, aperture size and shutter speed.
6.I would use a low film speed because it is the best to use outdoors on sunny day and details are captured much more effectively.
7.Here are the four steps to developing black and white film: 1. dilute the chemicals, 2. The Developer - 1:3 Chemical to water mix, 3. The Stop Bath - 1:63 Chemical to water mix, and 4. The Fixer - 1:4 Chemical to water mix.
8.Paper type (or the type of another printing surface), exposure (including overall exposure of the entire print, and increased or decreased exposure of parts of the print by "dodging" and "burning"), and processing are use to make a black and white print.
9.The final image in black and white print is developed silver.
