Camera Techniques - 548 words
To optimize the quality of ones portrait photos, a photographer must combine a series of camera techniques. A photo is a piece of art used to capture a moment in time. For a photographer to beautify the appearance of the photos he takes, he must know how his camera works. The photographer must adjust his aperture to suit the type of film he has and know how to load the film. Stillness is a key factor in taking a quality photo. If the camera is shaken during the time that the shutter is opening and closing, it will cause the photo to appear blurry. A tripod, a three-legged stand that screws into your camera, is often used to prevent the shaking of a camera. It is. Leaning against a pole or tr ...

Andre Parfeniuk Student # 10260974 December 3, 2001 The Impact of Dziga Vertov on Film " The main and essential thing is : the sensory exploration of the world through film. We therefore take as a point of departure the use of the camera as a keno-eye, more perfect than the human eye, for the exploration of the chaos of visual phenomena that fills space." - Dziga Vertov , Manifesto The Council of Three (1923) The innovative theories and filmmaking techniques of Dziga Vertov revolutionized the way films are made today.

... int of view, the editing deserves most of the credit for all of the intensity that is felt by the viewer. Run Lola Run has a very complex story, which is very interesting on its own. However by using the avant-garde techniques of filming and editing developed and mastered by Vertov, the movie becomes alive and fast-paced keeping the audience in suspence at all times. In Run Lola Run, Lola has twenty minutes to find 100,000 marks if she is to save the life of Manni, her boyfriend who lost the money which was picked up by a homeless person on the subway. Manni has until 12 o'clock noon to get the money, or his boss, a drug dealer, will kill him. Lola runs into the streets of Berlin attempt ...

Research Paper On The Camera Obscura, What Is A Camera Obscura Also Known As A Pinhole Camera? - 637 words
Camera Obscura, May 28, 1997. Camera Obscura (Latin for a dark room) is a dark box or room with a hole in one end. If the hole is small enough, an inverted image can be seen on the opposite wall. This phenomenon was known by thinkers as early as Aristotle (ca. 300 BC)1. Many sources state that Roger Bacon invented Camera Obscura just before the year 1300. More accurately, Bacon popularized Camera Obscura, using it to view solar eclipses. The earliest record of the uses of a Camera Obscura can be found in the writings of Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519)2. At about the same time, Daniel Barbaro, a Venetian, recommended the Camera Obscura as an aid to drawing and perspective. He wrote: "Close all ...

When we discuss our brain, we usually focus on the brains ability to think. That task alone is extremely complex and involved, but the brain also has many other tasks. Most of the time the brain is on autopilot, meaning that most of the activities preformed are just automatic. Our five senses; sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell, are automatically preformed in our brains. We don't have to think about how something sounds, we just hear it and we then interpret that sound. The largest area of our brain is the area that is set aside for vision, it is located in the occipital lobe. Dr. Gerard Guarniero has been blind since birth, a defect in which he has never been able to fix. Recently, he ha ...

Picassos Les Desmoiselles Davignon - 1,414 words
Though the backbone of art was formed by academies that graduated classical artists, some of the most influential artists broke away from such academies to change the rules. Impressionists, led by Claude Monet, formed a group of artists originally rejected from the academies to paint in their own "objective reality." They painted art as sifted through their senses; taking into account the environment's affect on an object or placing the focus on everyday activity, the impressionists helped redefine art. While they started the process of the transformation of art, Pablo Picasso advanced it many times over. Though classically trained, Picasso painted art by what views he saw in his head and im ...

Alfred Hitchcocks North By Northwest - 400 words
Alfred Hitchcocks North by Northwest This movie was pretty interesting. At first, I didnt look forward to completing this assignment, but once I started watching, I was very interested. The dialogue was clever, but the music was a little bold. I would say it was cheesy but that probably isnt the way to say it artistically. I noticed there were strong beats and drums for climatic and intense parts such as the fight scenes. Softer music for the calm, dont-worry-everything-is-safe scenes. I think sound played a major part in the scene were Robert Thornhill(Cary Grant) is out in the field waiting for Mr. Caplin. Waiting for the sound of the cars to get louder, which means they are close brings i ...

Analysis Of Albert Bierdstats Among The Sierra Nevada Mountains In California - 983 words
Albert Bierstadts Among the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California is a scenic canvas oil painting on display at the National Museum of American Art in Washington, DC. Created in 1868, this enormous painting is approximately six by ten feet in size (Honour and Fleming, 2000). The subject matter of this piece is typical of Bierstadt, who is known for his detailed landscapes, especially those of the Rockies and Sierras of the American West. Collectively, Alberts works are manipulated and slightly idealized scenes based on actual places he visited. Albert Bierstadt (1830-1902) was born in Germany and at the age of two, he moved with his parents to Massachusetts. In his early twenties, he studied ...

Compare Two Paintings - 1,479 words
Hunting Dogs by Jean-Dsir-Gustave Courbet is the first painting I looked at and I was created in 1867. The painting is oil on canvas and the size of it is 361/2 x 58 inch. Courbet paints two dogs and a dead hare in the woods. The woods are becoming dark and the sun is setting. The painting is dark and gloomy except for the quarreling dogs that the sun is directly setting on. With fine brushstrokes he sets a depressing mood because of the choice of dark colors. This picture is a very good example of its times because many paintings at that time told stories. The stories they told is what many people believed but no one dared to say in paintings or even words. This painting shows realism that ...

As funding for education is decreased in certain areas and put to other uses, classes such as art and music have peen put on the back shelf. The idea is that they are not quite as important to a child's education as English, history, math, and science. Obviously, teachers of artistic classes feel that their jobs are important to the learning and development of the children that they work with, but others are quickly realizing the importance of arts in all aspects of human interaction. Crayola has recently released an ad campaign claiming that, "Today's Crayola kid is tomorrow's self confident adult" ("Crayola").

When Hitchcock began production on PSYCHO, he was told that he would have to use the facilities at Revue Studios, the television division of Universal Studios, which Paramount had rented for the making of the film(Rebello 112). Although he was unable to use his regular cinematographer, Robert Burks, Hitchcock managed to convince Paramount that his special editor, George Tomasini, should be included in the production(Rebello 110). The director's desire for detail was in full f ...

... ted) into JPEG format. The completed image is then transferred to the memory card on the camera. Some cameras will need this process to finish before taking another picture, some cameras have an internal buffer that is large enough to hold a number of pictures, and can therefore take multiple pictures in a row, called burst shooting. Before a picture is taken the camera must prepare for it. That is why there is sometimes a delay from when the shutter release button is pressed and when the picture is actually taken. Newer cameras have much faster response times, but some of the old cameras have quite a noticeable lag. To prepare for a picture to be taken, the shutter release button is pre ...

The cold gray steel of the axe arced one last time through the air, the pick burrowed itself one last time into the frozen blanket of snow, and the hand that held it took a final pull, to ensure a secure placement. After a brief pause, George Mallory took a deep breath, and pulled himself over the crux, and onto the top. Slowly, shakily, he stood up, and took a look around, the first time American eyes had seen the world from this vantage point. This was it. He had done it. He was the first American to ever climb Everest. The sky was a most crystalline blue, and clear too, except for the small puffy white clouds in the distant East. George had the most incredible view ever seen in all direct ...

The JFK Assassination: Conspiracy or Single-gunman? Adolf Hitler, the Nazi dictator of Germany during World War II, once said, "The bigger the lie, the more people will believe it." Although this may sound ludicrous, we can see many example of this in the world's history. One example would have to be the John Fitzgerald Kennedys assassination. For over thirty years the people of the United States were led to believe that a single gunman shot and killed Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, at 12:30 p.m. Maybe they were wrong. According to the old facts regarding the case of the JFK assassination, a single gunman killed Kennedy. On November 22, 1963, at 12:30 p.m. CST (Central Standard Time ...
