Portrait, Landscape, Still Life, Tableau – Summative Quiz

 

1.
Question 1
In the following sequence of statements, either all are accurate (choose “True), or one is inaccurate (choose “False).

In general, the genre of “still life” involves inanimate objects placed into a composed order, in a context, with a background. Many different kinds of objects can be used – a random collection of objects taken from everyday life – a collection of different colored feathers, books next to a watch on a table top, and so forth. They can also sometimes involve people in the image.

1 point

  • False
  • True

2.
Question 2
Most portraits use soft, indirect, diffused light. The use of hard, direct light is unusual and quite rare, although on occasion, in the right context, it can be highly evocative and effective.

1 point

  • True
  • False

3.
Question 3
In the following sequence of statements, either all are accurate (choose “True), or one is inaccurate (choose “False).

Landscapes portray the physical character of landforms – mountains, hils, valleys, island geography, water forms – bays, inlets, etc. – and so forth. They never involve human subjects.

1 point

  • True
  • False

4.
Question 4
A tableau image – deriving originally from a party pastime involving recreating scenes from famous paintings, where participants would dress up, us props, stand in front of created backgrounds, and so forth – within photography, is a genre that in some cases has involved recreating old paintings or scenes from novels, but also creating photographic scenes related to new narratives, some literatry, some cinematic, some poetic, some social and satirical.

1 point

  • True
  • False

5.
Question 5
In making portraits, the focal length of the lens is an important choice. Most portrait photographers prefer wide and super-wide angle lenses because of the depth of field and the flattering effect they have on the face.

1 point

  • True
  • False

6.
Question 6
Most of the images in the “Manipulated Landscape” genre (or sub-genre) are created using post-processing effects, like splitting the image into a positive and negative panel, or inserting fragments from the image of a landscape scene back into the scene itself. Some multiple exposure overlays can be created in the camera, but this is more exceptional, than part of the rule.

1 point

  • False
  • True

7.
Question 7
The golden formula that ensures a good landscape photograph involves setting the f-stop to the highest number (f/16 or f/22 or higher), finding the right distance to get the entire area in the frame, minimizig the foreground, and using the fastest shutter speed you can use.

1 point

  • False
  • True

8.
Question 8
One of the most important choices in the creation of a still life have to do with how much space your subject – the objects – take up in the frame, and how much space is left (sometimes, if dark, or shadowy, that space, might be functional negative space).

1 point

  • True
  • False

9.
Question 9
When taking photographic portraits, focus and depth of field are extremely important choices. Many portraits are taken in a way that ensures the eyes will be most crisply sharp, even if there is a very shallow depth of field. When metering, many photographers prefer to set the camera to spot focus (or partial) metering.

1 point

  • False
  • True

10.
Question 10
When shooting portraits of the face, many photographs strive to have everything in the frame in the sharpest possible focus. Other photographers use low f-stops (f/1.4 etc.) to get the bokeh and blurred background that helps isolate and emphasize the subject, In these photos, the eyes might be sharply in focus, but the nose and cheeks softly blurred. Although most photographers, creating portraits, choose to have the eyes sharply in focus, both approaches outlined above can be effective.

1 point

  • True
  • False

11.
Question 11
The golden hour is the name for the time right after sunrise, or right before sunset, when the available light is soft, and often has a golden hue. Shooting during this time allows you to get rich and varied highlights and shadows into your landscapes (the highlights and shadows would be harder in bright, midday light, and the highlights more glaring, the shadows deeper, and both more uniform, swallowing detail)

1 point

  • True
  • False

12.
Question 12
A genre is a particular concept that suggests the shared characteristics of a set of different works, in our case, photographs. The word means “a kind” of work, or works of “one specific kind”.

1 point

  • False
  • True

13.
Question 13
In the following sequence of statements, either all are accurate (choose “True), or one is inaccurate (choose “False).

Most “tableau” images call on you to use your portrait photography skills, your landscape (and/or cityscape) skills, and you skill working with “still lives.” Tableau images often require considerable preparation of a set, or location, and often use makeup, costumes, and props, and many times, a sizeable group of models, or actors, to create a single photograph. Tableau images are all taken in studios.

1 point

  • True
  • False

14.
Question 14
Still life images can effectively use either hard, direct lighting or soft, indirect lighting. Which will be appropriate depends on the objects, the intended order, and the desired emotional ambience – hard lighting lends itself to certain kinds of dramatic effects, or austerity and roughness; soft, diffuse lighting can be more suggestive, elegant, smooth and so forth. Ultimately, the choice of lighting is crucial to creating the photographer’s intended concept, and cannot be evaluated independently of that concept.

1 point

  • True
  • False

15.
Question 15
The focal point in a landscape photograph, like in a portrait or still life, draws your eye to an important part of the picture, like a visual magnet.

1 point

  • False
  • True

16.
Question 16
In portraiture, framing has to do with how much of the subject is chosen to be in the image. All portraits focus on the head and face.

1 point

  • False
  • True

Week- 2

Summative Quiz – Ambient Light

1.
Question 1
When working with ambient light, although this is true when working with studio light as well, one important choice has to do with how close your subject is to your light source. If you are working with people, or things, you can move them closer to the source, or further away, to effect changes in the quality of the light. It is important to remember the “inverse square law” and keep in mind, that each step away, the light decreases even more dramatically, and each step toward the source, leads to an even brigher source.

1 point

False

True

2.
Question 2
There are three things that can happen when light moves from a source and hits a surface:

1. It reflects. (Reflection) – Light hits the surface and bounces off (There are two types of reflection: specular reflection – when light bounces off of smooth surfaces; diffuse reflection – when light bounces of of tetured surfaces).

2. It is absorbed. (Absorption) – Light hits a surface and is absorbed, converted to heat.

3. It passes through. (Transmission): Light hits a surface and passes through.

1 point

True

False

3.
Question 3
In the following sequence, if all statements are true, mark it “True”, if one is false, mark it “False.”

Color is a product of both the source of light and reflected light that hits our eyes. White is the result of almost all wavelengths of light being reflected back to our eye; black is a result of almost all the wavelengths being absorbed. Other colors are in between: some wavelengths are reflected back, in degrees, as some wavelengths are absorbed in various degrees. The colors of light are said to have a temperature that goes from “hotter” red colors, and their temperatures (like the light in fires, candle light, etc to “cooler blue colors, and their temperatures (like the light in the shade, or on an LCD screen). All of these factors of color temperature are conditions that photographers cannot control.

1 point

False

True

4.
Question 4
There are our important qualities of light for photographers to thinks about in every situation, no matter whether working with studio light, or with ambient light. Which one of the following is NOT one of those important qualities?

1 point

Direction – Where the light comes from?

Quality – Whether the light is soft, indirect, and diffused, or hard, direct, and sharp

Quantity – Whether there is one or many sources of light

Intensity – Whether the light is very bright, or just bright, or dim, or actually quite dark

Color – the temperature of the colors, both reflected and absorbed

5.
Question 5
Color is a result of a source of light, and of how that light is absorbed and reflected as it travels from the source. Different wavelengths of light (electromagnetic radiation, or visible light, the part of the spectrum eyes can respond to) are reflected and absorbed in different ways, and the specific configuration of absorbtion and reflection produces a “color’.

1 point

True

False

6.
Question 6
Certain times of day are associated with certain qualities of light. The Golden Hour is the hour (roughly) right after sunrise and right before sunset. When the sun is near the horizon, sunlight travels through a greater depth of atmosphere, reducing the intensity of the direct light, so that more of the illumination comes from indirect light from the sky, reducing the lighting ratio. More blue light is scattered, so if the sun is present, its light appears more reddish. In addition, the sun’s small angle with the horizon produces longer shadows. Less technically, this time is renowned for its lush “golden” cast.

1 point

False

True

7.
Question 7
The ratio of subject to light source describes the following relationship, and its variants: The larger the size of light source compared to the subject, the softer will be the light, and the other way around.

1 point

False

True

8.
Question 8
In landscape photography, the influence of the time of day on the quality of light can influence the color of light, the intensity of light, and its relative hardness and softness, and also the richness of highlights and shadows. All of these factors lead photographers to revisit places at different times, in different seasons, and so forth, to acquire the richest and most expressive variety a particular locale, or context has to offer.

1 point

False

True

9.
Question 9
When photographing a subject, the color and light intensivity of the surrounding environment – walls, floor, or ground has little or no effect on the color and light intensity of your subject.

1 point

False

True

10.
Question 10
Intensity and quality of light refer to the same thing.

1 point

True

False

11.
Question 11
Light scatters off of smooth surfaces the same way as it scatters off of textured surfaces

1 point

True

False

12.
Question 12
Unlike landscapes where the photographer cannot move the subject, portraits and pictures of things allow the photographer to have an important degree of control over the impact of ambient light. Moving the subject closer, or further away from the source of light, and changing the angle of the subject, as well as the angle of the camera, in relation to the direction of the light source provides a significant degree of variety to the photographer.

1 point

True

False

13.
Question 13
Trying various angles in relation to the source of light, as well as distances from the subject to the source of light, doesn’t really have much point when you are taking photographs of objects and things using ambient light.

1 point

True

False

14.
Question 14
Light is a form of electro-magnetic radiation that can be registered by the eye.

1 point

True

False

15.
Question 15
Ambient light is the name of light created using various kinds of artificial lights in a studio situation.

1 point

True

False
