Does having more control over the camera enable better photographs to be taken?

Introduction
The digital world of photography change how humanity communicates and exchange images in a matter of few seconds provoking to have less privacy in your everyday life. Digital photos in the Web are very common, which is a useful tool for people to share memories and personal events, but once the pictures are downloaded and shared it’s impossible to erase. Almost everyone have digital access from either a camera phone or digital camera, which creates a whole new era of artistic art that helps humans to express feelings and emotions (Helmut and Alison, 2011). Technology made it easier to play and experiment with common features of devices and programs to have a variety of pictures with different effects that creates artistic photos. Digital Photography transforms the view on how humanity has access to instant photos from family and friends, editing, and digital artistic.

Capturing digital images comes back in 1960s where NASA use digital signals to capture the surface of the moon with the help of computer technology to improve the images that the space probes were sending. The government used satellites to spy and helped to advanced digital imaging. The private sectors made big contributions like Texas Instruments invented a film-less electronic camera in 1972. Sony released an electronic camera that recorded images onto a mini disc (Helmut and Alison, 2011).
According to Daniel Carp, Kodak CEO, points out that Kodak invented much of the technology behind digital imaging back in the 1970’s (Roberts, D., 2004). Kodak invented image sensors that converted light to digital pictures (Eisemann and Durand, 2004). In 1986, the world’s first megapixel sensor was capable to produce a 5X7 in digital photo-quality print. In 1987, Kodak released products for…...

...Strategies for Using Photoshop to Enhance Your Digital Photography Skills Digital Photography Expert Techniques Ken Milburn rs CS ve op Co osh ot Ph Bringing Out the Best Picture So you’ve taken the shot. Is that it? Certainly not. In the world of digital photography, you can use a wide variety of techniques to “bring out” the best picture possible from the shot you’ve taken. You might be wondering, “How is that possible?” Well, in order to explain that, we should provide some background on how cameras differ from our own brains. The human brain can process more color range at any given instant than a computer monitor or a digital print can display. Our eyes don’t actually see more range than film or digital sensors; rather, our brain instructs our eyes to composite different areas of the image into a single whole. The brain does this “multiple-exposure” blending so quickly that we think we are looking at only one image. The camera, on the other hand, doesn’t have our brain inside. It records only one instant in time, which is why we are often so disappointed when we look at a base picture. (“That’s not how I remember the color and the details!”) And it gets worse: cameras are notorious for losing all the little details in the highlights and shadows of a shot. Thankfully, we can use the camera and the computer to minimize these deficiencies, and bring out a wider range of brightness and colors in each of our digital photographs. For example, compare the......

...Sony camera vs Nikon camera marketing strategy STRATEGY IMPLEMENTATION The idea behind this continual process is that each step of the planning process requires some degree of implementation before the next stage can begin. This naturally dictates that all implementation cannot be postponed until completion of the plan, but must be initiated along the way. Implementation procedures specific to each phase of planning must be completed during that phase in order for the next stage to be started.

To be successful, the strategic plan must have the support of every member of the firm. As mentioned in the beginning, this is why the top office must be involved from the beginning. A company's leader is its most influential member. Positive reception and implementation of the strategic plan into daily activities by this office greatly increases the likelihood that others will do the same. Advertising is key to successful implementation of the strategic plan. The more often employees hear about the plan, its elements, and ways to measure its success, the greater the possibility that they will undertake it as part of their daily work lives. It is especially important that...

...Pentax K-30 is a 16.3-megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera, announced on 21 May 2012. At its introduction, it was in the middle of Pentax's DSLR range—above the now-discontinued entry-level K-r, and below the semi-pro K-5 and successor K-5 II. As a mid-range body, it has a polycarbonate chassis, but unlike most DSLRs of that class, is fully weather sealed. It can shoot continuously at up to 6 frames per second with a maximum shutter speed of 1/6000th of a second. It can capture video at 1080p at either 30, 25, or 24 fps. Like all current and recent Pentax DSLRs it features in-body shake reduction, removing the need for each lens to have image stabilisation. The Pentax K mount allows use of legacy lenses dating back to the 1970s, or even earlier with an M42-mount adapter, for which the K-mount is fully compatible. The autofocus system (SAFOX IXi+) is an advance over the K-5 and features 11 AF points, 9 of which are cross-type (i.e. sensitive to vertical as well as horizontal edges). For maximum flexibility, the camera can either use the proprietary supplied lithium battery, or, with an optional adapter, use the universally available AA battery type. 2.0 RETAIL PRICE AND WHERE TO BUY Price - ± RM 2,659.00 Location - Can be obtained at any camera shop and can also be purchased via the internet. For example, http://www.pentax2u.com/ is the website of Pentax, Malaysia. Consumers are able to purchase the cameras and equipment using......

At present Indian film industry or Bollywood is a perfect combination of entertainment and commercial sector, producing close to thousand movies in a year in various Indian languages. Indian film industry supersedes Hollywood in terms of movie production quantity by more than three times. Broadcast Television is going through an extraordinary time of change and challenge. It is still one of the most popular forms of entertainment and information, with the average Indian viewer still watching twenty hours or more per week.

The Indian television industry is dominated by the major broadcasters like Star Group, Zee Group, Sun Network etc., plus a much larger number of less well-known broadcasters and production companies like Sahara, Jaya Tv, Kairali etc. As per the recent report by PricewaterhouseCooopers (PwC), Indians are likely to spend more on entertainment in the coming years with a steady growth in their disposable income.

The Affects Lighting Has in Photography

...can be even more challenging. Lighting contributes many different feelings and effects when it comes to pictures. It can change the image, the mood and even the point of the photograph. Back lighting, artificial lighting, and simple portrait lighting are just a few examples of all the different types of lighting that can be used in photography. The image above illustrates back lighting. http://www.vistaview360.com/photography/contre_jour.htm. Back lighting is when light is behind your subject and is directed at your camera. Lighting in back often creates silhouettes easily which is demonstrated above. When mixed with fog or different atmospheric conditions, this can increase the dramatic effect of the photo. This may take practice or multiple shots since “an over exposed (too dark) photograph can result when the light is coming from behind the subject or when the subject is against a much brighter background, such as the sky” (Freeman Ch. 3 Pg. 70). Silhouettes are not the only purpose of backlight photography. Backlight photography can be used to achieve many looks. This next image is another example of using backlight, which looks completely different. (http://www.clickinmoms.com/blog/easy-backlighting-tips-for-your-photography-by-michael-kormos/ First, your exposure should be set on manual. Try to focus in on the subject’s eyes.

OFURE AITO THE STILL PHOTOGRAPHY AS LITERATURE IN THE 21ST CENTURY USING TY BELLO’S WORKS Introduction “Art is about collecting experiences and expressing them. For me music and photography are similar art forms. I collect experiences, stir them in myself and express it in my own language. Just like my photography, music is my language.” Ty Bello Today people live in a visually intensive society and a world of spectacular and exciting images. They are bombarded with an orderly and continuously stream of visual stimulation from all manner of media every day. They see mediated images more often than they read words. Images sell everything. This paper offers an analytical framework for understanding how still photography is Literature in the 21st Century, using TY Bello’s still pictures. According to Aristotle, “There can be no words without images”. The world is surrounded with mediated images in such a way that has never been witnessed in the history of mass communication. Every era has expressed itself in its own way since the beginning. Antiquity was the time of legends, epics and mythical narratives. During the sovereignty of this era, meaning was constructed with ‘the word’ and its......

Photography

...Photography is the technique of recording and generating permanent images, by the capturing and preservation of physical stimulus-patterns on a layer of photosensitive material. It involves recordinglight patterns as reflected from objects, on to a sensitive medium through momentary exposure. The process is done through mechanical, chemical or digital devices commonly known as camera. The word comes from the Greek words φως phos ("light"), and γραφις graphis ("stylus", "paintbrush") or γραφη graphê, together meaning "drawing with light" or "representation by means of lines", "drawing". Photography is the art, science, and practice of creating pictures by recording radiation on a radiation-sensitive medium, such as a photographic film, or electronic image sensors. Photography uses foremost radiation in the UV, visible andnear-IR spectrum. As far as can be ascertained, it was Sir John Herschel in a lecture before the Royal Society of London, on March 14, 1839 who made the word "photography" known to the world. But in an article published on February 25 of the same year in a German newspaper called the Vossische Zeitung, Johann von Maedler, a Berlin astronomer, had used the word photography already.[2] The word photography is based on the Greek φῶς (photos) "light" and γραφή (graphé) "representation by means of lines" or "drawing", together meaning "drawing with light".[3] 1. The art or process of producing images of objects on photosensitive surfaces. 2. The art...

Digital Transformation

...Digital transformation [pic] Summer 2008: Dramatic developments in digital technologies and the diffusion of the Internet protocol as an open and efficient communication standard are wiping out the specialized symbiotic link between content and technology. That’s how Gianvito Lanzolla and Jamie Anderson see the digital world, and here they reveal three trends that companies need to prepare for. Comments In the past, media and technology industries operated through specialized value chains with clearly defined boundaries. Mobile phones were used to make simple voice calls, Walkmans were used to play cassette tapes, and computers existed mainly to crunch data. But new technologies have made it possible to convert different kinds of content – a radio programme, a book, a magazine, a song, a phone call – into digital data; in digital terms, there is little difference between them. At the same time, the Internet and other communication networks based on Internet protocol have made it possible to distribute this digitized content in costeffective and ubiquitous ways. The extent and nature of these changes and their consequent strategic implications remain substantially misunderstood. While some studies have been made, they have mainly had an industry-specific focus, with the consequent limitation of overlooking the systemic effect of ongoing transformations. In order to address this limitation, we researched current transformations in media, telecommunications and......
