About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

4.  What measures the resolution of an image?

5.  The amount of light falling on an image during the process of taking a photo is called what?

6.  When a photographer uploads his/her photos to the computer, where do they save them?

7.  What are black and white photos also known as?

8.  What are the properties of colour called?

9.  Why is it better to save photos in JPEG rather than TIFF?

10. What do you call it when you put contrasting elements side by side in order to add interest?

11. What part of the camera makes images of objects on film or on a memory card?

12. What is my personal favourite form of photography?

13. What is the difference between what your brain expects to see and what is actually there?

14. What type of photography is it when an individual poses for a photograph?

15. How much fun is photography to you?

Roger already grabbed my first thought. The float homes at the quay look so colourful and the water is so calm. Looks like a quiet place to hang out. - Margy

You've worked hard! Good quiz and beautiful photo.

We have a macro setting on our camera (going back a few posts) but it doesn't allow me to take very good close-ups. it's annoying.

And what a lovely image to cap everything off with (looks like a painting).

Love your colorful pic with all the reflections! Let's not talk about my brain, it's a mess there!

aka Penelope said...

Some of these subjects were covered in your earlier posts so I feel I should be somewhat better informed by now. But it is not unusual for me to have more questions than answers in life. :)

Hazel said...

I flunked surely. But I'd be interested to find the answers. Thanks for quite a lovely and stunning photo after the quiz.
