Summer Dollie Camp's First Assignment (day 2)

Hi campers!

Are y'all having fun? Hope you are! So far in our camp we have Sophia, Julie, Taylor and Addy. If you aren't registered for camp, you can come here, and then catch up here.

We are on day 2! You'll need your cameras for this assignment. Maybe you're thinking, "My photography isn't even good." That's ok! And I'm sure it is good! The meaning of Summer Dollie Camp: Photography is to help you learn about cameras and how to take better photos. So let's learn about some photography terms.

Incident light- Light falling on a surface, not the light reflected from it. Incident light rays are those that strike an object.

MF- Manual Focus, focusing on an object by using your hand with a lens, not automatically.

and.... now it's YOUR turn to research a term! 

Please email me a photography term with the meaning.

There is one more thing!

Take a picture of your doll wearing a crazy outfit! It can be colorful, wild, cute, hideous, whatever you want! Remember the terms I talked about above and try to use them with your photography. Please send it to me! Please, only 1 picture. :) It will be added to this post! I will also score it!

Things campers need to do:

Send an email to Danielle with a new term you learned about.
Send an email to Danielle with your doll wearing a crazy outfit! 


Sophia and Julie,

Photography Term- Accessory Shoes - also often called "Hot Shoe". The early flash types were simple metal brackets. To install a flash unit, you just slide the mounting foot of the flash into the accessory shoe. No electrical connection is made between camera and flash - it's just a simple and convenient way to attach the flash unit to the camera. Subsequent accessory shoes have been built as part of the camera and usually reat on top of the camera's pentaprism; others are separate items that you mount on the camera body when you need them. Some like the Nikon early professional camera has special dedicated which was designed around the rewind knob.

​So like this called sephia tone, It makes the pic really clear (sometimes) and it'll show the textures of what you're shooting and though it's not very colorful it makes the pic look really great! 
(I'm not sure if I'm explaining very well :)

Allison and Taylor,

Here is my photography term:
Spray and Pray: Shooting a large amount of images without much care, and hoping that one will turn out.

Lindsay and Mckenna,
