What is a new name of photography?

Photography's name as a medium of 2D images hasn't changed. Many of the processes have changed with technology. In some cases there are overlaps with other mediums in part due to the digital convergence.

Traditionally photography uses chemical processes to fix an image from a projection of light. This was most commonly the film within a camera with the camera being a means to mount a lens to focus the light and through mechanical processes to make an exposure - the amount of light as a ratio of the aperture of the lens and the shutter determining the length of exposure to the light sensitive material (film). The third factor of the basic principals relates to the photo sensitivity of the film (now called ISO, previously called ASA).

In more recent times the film has been replaced by a sensor which is also light sensitive when charged. The exposure is still controlled by a balance of aperture and exposure length. The image is briefly recorded by the sensor and the information is transferred as a file to a storage device such as a removable disk or card.

Digital cameras range from those you may have in your cell phone to highly specialized devices like those on the rovers on Mars, but they all work fundamentally the same way.

Many of the changes in the medium we call photography have to do with how the image is manipulated after the photo is captured. Using software like Photoshop and After Effects (both made by Adobe, but there are many similar programs made by a wide range of companies) the images can be completely changed, combined and output in 2D, 3D or as part of a motion process (animated). The flexibility this offers with wide and diverse options has lead some to question if it is still "photography" or perhaps should be called by another term.

Early in digital photography the manipulation of digital files was sometimes referred to as "digital imaging". It can also be called "post production" as in after the image capture (production). You may opt to simply use "Digital Photography" to differentiate the capture process from traditional chemical based processes.

New output options including high-end inkjet printers, distribution by the internet and video media allow images to be projected on building, printed on clothing and shared on your phone. I believe these all still have their basis in photography if the image or contributing elements were created by capturing light.

Is seconded a word?

Yes.

Most commonly this word arises in describing a formal meeting where a motion has been made. For a motion to be formally considered, another individual must express support for its consideration. This is done by saying, "I second that motion." Once that stage has occurred, the motion is described as seconded. For example, "Ms. Wilson has seconded the motion to adjourn which must be voted on immediately in accordance with Robert's Rules of Order."

The word less commonly is encountered when discussing the ranking of things. If an item is put in second place, it may be said to have been "seconded." In that case it can also be an adjective, "The seconded item was taken off of the winner's pedestal."

There are other variations of usage, but most are related to these two examples.

Did Johann Heinrich Schulze invent the photography?

Johann H. Schultze 1684 - 1744 German - Preformed experiments that paved the way towards chemical based photography. It was known that certain chemicals darkened when exposed to sunlight. In 1727 Professor Schulzte heated silver nitrate. The compound did not darken so heat was eliminated as a cause of blackening. Schultze mixed silver nitrate with chalk and using the chalk like a pencil applied this compound to paper using a stencil. When exposed to sunlight the coated paper darkened.

In invention of photography is credited to Nicephore Niece 1765 - 1833 France - who made the first permanent picture, a view from his window using a camera of his design. This first picture was taken in 1827. The picture is currently at Gernsheim Collection, University of Texas at Austin.

How do you make a picture less than 200k?

If you haven't yet taken the pictures, if you can alter the camera settings for the size of the photo to be taken to the lowest possible size and quality.

If you have already taken them, download them to the computer and alter their size by or a suitable propriety program if you have one, or freeware programs such as "PictureTray" or "Photo Resizer". See the related question. If you have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements on your computer, you can click on the "Image" menu then "Image Size" and enter your values, or you can select "Canvas Size" and enter the values if you want to reduce the size of the canvas that the picture is on without shrinking the actual image itself.

(Of course, you could always crop them , but make certain you always work on copies).

If by 200k you mean file size: using Adobe Photoshop (Adobe Photoshop Elements might also have this feature), open the image that you want to reduce the file size of, then click on "File>Save for Web & Devices..." This will open a preview window of what your image will look like when you save it. Near the bottom left corner of this window it will display what image type is selected for the output and below that it shows the size the file will be once it's saved. On the right side you can select the image format (bmp, jpg, png, gif, etc) and other adustable options below that. PNG-8 and JEPEG will usually give you smaller file sizes. After you select a file format, you can then play around with the Quality or Colors setting, the more you reduce them it will reduce image size, but it will also reduce the color variation in your image, so it is up to you to decide when to stop adjusting it and how much reduction is too much.

What is a good photography store name?

My photography studio's name is Blue Water Studio. But I think using something natural or catchy like "snap shot studio" would be cool. It helps people remember who you are and get a relaxed feeling! A lot of people don't like their photos taken so if you have something in your name that makes them feel relaxed they may choose you!

Think about what it is you do best, or what you wish to convey. Obviously, if your speciality will be animals, it would be best not to suggest that you specialize in weddings. "Snap Shots" might be a catchy name for the market you seek, but some would regard this as too informal. A ten year old can MAKE a snap shot. A professional wedding photographer CREATES a moment in time, thus would need a more suitable name. Or is this a retail store selling cameras and such?

There is something to be said for using your last name in the business name in that it usually makes it easier to register.

Why was the digital picture frame invented?

It was designed by Simon Riggs in early 1999, he sent the design to a marketing company, he admitted to the employee on the phone, he was unsure what to do with the design. Unfortunatly 1 month later, Sony released a digital photo frame, identical to Rigg’s design. He sued the marketing company and won, but could not sue Sony due to him not copyrighting the idea. He was partially credited in a 2011 documentry, and was for a time acknowledged by the public for the idea

What is emphasis in photography?

The photographer can show emphasis through framing choice, whether he uses a vertical or horizontal format. Or he might show emphasis by the placement of the subject, governed by the rule of thirds. Or he might use selective focus to simplify the background. Or by drawing the viewers attention to a certain spot within the frame using perspective.

Emphasis in photography is highlighting some aspect of a scene or subject. To emphasize the height of a basketball player, the photographer may sit on the ground and shoot upward toward the subject. To emphasize a mood, different color lighting may be used. Altering perspective, framing and lighting are just a few of the ways emphasis may be applied.

Can you convert a 35mm camera to digital?

Oh yes, it is possible, and has been done for a number of medium and large-format cameras. A digital camera back may be used in place of the film holder. However, it may be slightly impractical for 35 mm cameras, due to the stellar costs involved. I have seen digital backs for Leica 35 mm models, as well as a few home-made backs for Canon and Nikon cameras. Whether a commercial version is available depends on the actual camera in mind.

- - - - -

It really wouldn't be worth it except for some really expensive cameras like Leica Rs or Nikon F6s. By the time you got the thing working, you'd have more money invested than a factory-made digital camera costs.

Converting a medium-format or large-format camera is a different story. A medium format camera uses interchangeable backs so all you need do is remove your film back and put a digital back on. But the cost! If you wanted to put the least expensive Mamiya digital back on your Mamiya 645, it would cost you about $8000. If you have an RB67, the news is even worse: before you can put the multi-thousand-dollar back on your camera, you need to spend $600 for the piece that goes between back and body, which is called a lock. (An RZ67 lock is almost a thousand dollars.)

What does CA stand for in photography?

CA stands for chromatic aberration.

Chromatic aberration happens in the lens. The different wavelengths (colors) of light get spread out, sort of like a prism creating a rainbow.

CA is usually visible as a thin green line on one side of a subject and a thin magenta (red-purple) line on the other side.

CA also tends to reduce the overall sharpness of an image.

Can you paint over a photograph?

Acrylic would be a poor choice for painting over a photo if you want to maintain its integrity, because acrylics are opaque. Also, the paint may damage the photo. You can buy special oil paints for hand-coloring photographs.

(Neither acrylics nor oil paints are inherently opaque nor tranparent. The pigments used for either-or for watercolors- are identical. Only the binder is different and both the oils and polymer emulsions used in the production of acrylic paint are transparent. What makes a PARTICULAR color opaque is the opaqueness of the pigment. So, Yellow Ochre (oil or acrylic) is more opaque than is Acra Violet/Alizarin Crimson.)

Tinting photos is an old and formerly popular techinique. You wouldn't be re-inventing the wheel, so finding the right tools/media shouldn't be hard.

The only snag might be that "photos" printed from your computers and not through traditional photoprinting methods, run a variety of chemical recipes of dyes and inks.

- - - - -

A special note for people who want to hand-color inkjet photos rather than silver halide photos, and there are quite a few who do: Paint of any kind will soak through inkjet ink and mess up the photograph. Before handcoloring an inkjet, you coat it with a clear artist's gesso. This seals the ink. Liquitex makes what you need.

Is the LG 550 supposed to come with software I am trying to connect to my computer but I don't have any CD software. Was this a mistake or do I have to purchase the software separately?

No all you have to do is plug it into the computer and then once that is done go to Tools --> Mass Storage and click ok.

This will then allow you to browse your phone via the usb cable and show up as a drive letter in the my computer.

sorry sadly no , not all cell's come with cd's , often time like was said , they are recognized as removable storage...

What is matrix or zone metering in photography?

Metering that mixes the results of several points around the central area of the focusing screen and presents one value that represents an aperture/shutter combination to use. To say these points are averaged would not usually be correct because different areas influence the result more than others. This is known as weighting, as in "central averaging, bottom weighted" in one system. Different manufacturers have different approaches to the problem of metering.

What does CF stand for in photography?

CF stands for Compact Flash. Compact Flash cards are approximately 1.25x2.5" in size, and are used as a kind of digital film. The images from the digital camera are recorded on the CF card, which can then be placed inside a CF card reader, connected to a computer, to view and download the images.

Most, if not all, professional-grade DSLR camera bodies use CF cards, as they have high capacities (currently upwards of 32GB) and are extremely durable.


Many consumer-grade cameras use SD, XD or Memory Stick cards, rather than CF cards.

Digital zoom really isn't important. It is the same as cropping, so it reduces image quality. Nothing you can't do with a computer. What you want is optical zoom.

When and how did color photography begin?

The first color plate, Autochrome, invented by the French Lumière brothers, reached the market in 1907. It was based on a 'screen-plate' filter made of dyed dots of potato starch, and was the only color film on the market until German Agfa introduced the similar Agfacolor in 1932. In 1935, American Kodak introduced the first modern ('integrated tri-pack') color film, Kodachrome, based on three colored emulsions. This was followed in 1936 by Agfa's Agfacolor Neue. Unlike the Kodachrome tri-pack process, the color couplers in Agfacolor Neue were integral with the emulsion layers, which greatly simplified the film processing. Most modern color films, except Kodachrome, are based on the Agfacolor Neue technology.

In 1861 James C. Maxwell, Cambridge professor of physics who is best known for his work in electromagnetism, took the world's color photograph of a tartan ribbon. Maxwell solved the problem of photographically recording color using basically the same method we use today in a modern digital camera. Maxwell's photograph was an RGB composite. He took three black & white photos of the ribbon; one through a red filter, one through a green filter and one through a blue filter. He then projected the three black & white images onto a wall registering them together. When the filters for each image were placed over the projection lenses a full color image appeared. Maxwell's work laid the foundation for all subsequent color photographic processes.

In 1869 Louis Ducos du Hauron, building upon Maxwell's discovery, published the details of a tri-color carbon pigment process for making color photographic prints. Although patented, du Hauron's work did not generate a commercial process.

Working at the turn of the century and beyond, the Russian photographer/inventor Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii created and used a tricolor camera that rapidily exposed three B&W neagtives as RGB composites to produce excellent full color photographs.
