Introduction to Photography Child and her Mother - Dorthea Lange 1 Photography is Art created by Light! 2

What is Photography? Photography is an art form like drawing and painting. Photographers use their camera to make us see life in a different way, feel emotions, and record stories and events. 3 How a Camera works

Notice the inverted (upside-down) tree. When the shutter of a camera is opened, light passes through the lens and onto the film. The film is covered with chemicals that create a pattern of light on the film. This becomes the negative. 4

There are three basic styles of photography. Landscape Portrait Documentary 5

Landscape Landscape is a photograph of the environment. It could be the forest, mountains, oceans, or your backyard. Ansel Adams is a famous landscape

photographer. Here is one of his images. 6 Here is another of Ansel Adams Photographs 7

What is Landscape Photography? Landscape photography is a photograph of the outdoors. It could be of the land, water, or buildings. 8

23 Rule of Thirds A photo is more interesting if the subject is NOT directly in the center. Try placing your subject 1/3 to the left or right, or 1/3 from top or bottom. 24

One photograph uses rule of thirds and the other uses central focus. Central Focus Rule of Thirds Which photograph do you find more interesting? WHY? 25

Point of View Try selecting and unusual point of view. Above Eye Level Below

Where was the photographer standing for each picture? 26 Proximity Dont be shy! Get close to your subject. 27

Contrast, Rule of Thirds, Point of View, and Proximity are tools to help you MASTER the art of photography. 28 One should really use the camera as though tomorrow you'd be stricken blind.
