Hurricane Ike

This is Simplicity. I like this photo because look at the photo on the left, there's a house on fire and its covered with water around it. Take a look at the picture on the right, this is a year later after hurricane Ike, and everything looks okay and I like how everything looks. The houses look great but there's one missing, I think the fire made the house crumble, and I like how those houses look.

This is Rule of Thirds. I like this photo because everything looks empty and quite, and that there's an African Lion in the baptism church. I also like this photo because it looks like the lion is gonna jump right at you and that could scare lot's of people. The other reason I like this photo is that its a church and I like going to the church.

Pinhole Finale

The difference in these photos is that the negative is really dark and hard to see. In the positive, the photo is a lot lighter and its easier to see what was in the negative. The negative doesn't really show anything but the white spot in the bottom. The negative doesn't have any trees or ground like the positive, that's why they are different.

In photography, a negative may refer to three different things, although they are all related.

"The Falling Man"

If I was there, I would have been shocked of what this man had done. When I saw this photo I was thinking that this man is crazy. I wish I could've done something to stop him from falling but back then I didn't know much and I wasn't there in 9/11. I want to know why he did it, and for what reason? But I think this man was insane but I think he just really want to do it, I am still shocked and sad. Rest in peace Jonathan Briley.

Composition 9/11 Photos

 In this photo we can all see that there is a plane heading for that building in front of it. This is the center of attention that people are gonna see and remembering it for a long time.

"The Rule of Thirds"

In this photo we can see that the background is destroyed. It can probably be the huge dust cloud that looks like a tornado that might have caused the destruction. In this photo,  people look like they can walk straight into the photo and out.

In this photo you can see a person falling. You can see that it also looks like the person is going up instead of going down or that he's going down instead of going up.

In this photo there used to be a building with balance. Now in this photo you can see that that the building has lost its balance and has now been corrupted.

In this photo you can see that everything has been destroyed but the flag. But in the center of this photo you can see that the destroyed building looks like a hand with its body under the ruble.

 "Avoiding Mergers"
 In this photo you can see that those two buildings are away from each other. But both of those buildings are on fire but the building on the left looks more taller than the other.

"Great Black and White photographers, Part 3"

The reason I picked this photo is that when I saw this, it feel's like something is gonna come out of that tunnel and I can't walk away. I see that there is no one around. I see that there are no leaves. I also see that there is not a color of green of the grass.I can't smell anything around here. I can't smell because it's humid. I can smell something sweet.I can't hear anything at all. I can't even hear any animals making a sound . I can hear the birds in the sky. I can't taste is nothing in my mouth. I can only taste the aftertaste of my lunch. I feel that no one is here because there is something wrong and I feel so scared for some reason. I feel like im the only person in the world.

The reason I picked this photo is that it looks so quiet and and interesting. I see that everything is black and white. I see that this passage can go on for a long time. I can see something that looks like a person far away. I can smell the air around me. I can't smell nothing sweet like food. I can smell my own scent from my clothes. I can hear the heavy wind outside. I can hear people talking from somewhere. I can hear the car's outside running. I can taste the gum in my mouth. I can taste the breakfast from this morning. I smell something, I can almost taste it. I feel like I'm the only person that like's to talk. I feel like I'm different from the others and that makes me feel uncomfortable. I feel like I'm the only person that likes to have fun in this place. i think the photographers should make poster's so they can make money and they should make their own blog so lot's of people can see there great picture's.

"The Single-lens-reflex Camera"

Four things that are important:

Electromagnetic Spectrum-The range of all possible frequencies.
Lens-Assembly of lenses used in conjunction.
Photographic Film-Is a sheet of plastic coated with an emulsion containing light-sensitive silver halide.
Film Frames-Is one of the many single photographic images in a motion picture.

Other important words:

Is a hole or an opening through which light travels.More specifically, the aperture of an optical system is the opening that determines the cone angle of a bundle of rays that come to a focus in the image plane.

Is a device that allows light to pass for a determine period of time, for the purpose of exposing photographic film or a light-sensitive electronic sensor to light to capture a permanent image of a scene.

Is the total amount of light allowed to fall on the photographic medium (photographic film or image sensor) during the process of taking a photograph.

Depth of Field-
Is the portion of a scene that appears acceptably sharp in the image. Although a lens can precisely focus at only one distance, the decrease in sharpness is gradual on each side of the focused distance, so that within the DOF, the unsharpness is imperceptible under normal viewing conditions.

an optical system expresses the diameter of the entrance pupil in terms of the focal length of the lens; in simpler terms, the f-number is the focal length divided by the "effective" aperture diameter. It is a dimensionless number that is a quantitative measure of lens speed, an important concept in photography.

Focal length-
The pinhole camera model describes the mathematical relationship between the coordinates of a 3D point and its projection onto the image plane of an ideal pinhole camera, where the camera aperture is described as a point and no lenses are used to focus light.
