Hello butterfly.its long since i just posted my research but is because i was doing and narrowing my research into details and i suddenly came across an interesting topic about photography and would like to talk more about photography and also compare photography here in Kenya and other countries and how they do their photography.


photography is the art,application and practise of making or creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation.Typically, a lens is used to focus the light reflected or emitted from objects into a real image on the light-sensitive surface inside a camera during a timed exposure. With an electronic image sensor, this produces an electrical charge at each pixel which is electronically processed and stored in a digital image file for subsequent display or processing.

The result with photographic emulsion is an invisible latent image, which is later chemically developed into a visible image, either negative or positive depending on the purpose of the photographic material and the method of processing. A negative image on film is traditionally used to photographically create a positive image on a paper base, known as a print, either by using an enlarger or by contract printing.

                SETTINGS OF CAMERA.

Your camera has dozens of buttons and menu options. If you pick the wrong camera settings, it’s possible that your photo won’t turn out the way you want. How do you make sense of all these options? And how do you do it quickly in the field?

It’s not easy, but it’s easier than you might think. In fact, most of the menu options are things you will only set one time, then rarely or never touch again. Only a handful of settings need to be changed frequently, and that’s what the rest of this Photography Basics guide covers.The three most important settings are called shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. All three of them control the brightness of your photo, although they do so in different ways. In other words, each brings its own side effects to an image. So, it’s a bit of an art to know exactly how to balance all three for a given photo.

  1. Shutter speed: The amount of time your camera sensor is exposed to the world while taking a picture.
  2. Aperture: Represents a pupil in your lens that can open and close to let in different amounts of light.
  3. ISO: Technically a bit more complex, but similar to the sensitivity of film for taking pictures in different lighting conditions.
Next post will be photography and ICT.

  1. Hi Wallace!
    Great round of research! Photography is a very interesting subject to study. I love photography especially in nature so I found it very insightful to learn what goes on inside the camera that helps take these beautiful pictures. You mentioned possibly looking at differences in photography in Kenya and in different parts of the world. I think this would be really interesting because aspects like culture and surroundings would greatly impact what you decide to take pictures of. Do you like to take pictures? what do you usually take pictures of? I’m excited to hear about your next post and to discover what ICT is 🙂 Thank you for posting

    here are some possible websites to use

  2. Hi Wallace,
    Great round of research! I really enjoyed reading this because I’ve been exposed to photography a lot growing up since my dad loves taking pictures of people, wildlife and nature as his hobby, and I also took Photography as a class once. I agree that although the settings and buttons on a camera can seem quite confusing at first, once you understand what they do, it isn’t all that hard to use. I think it’s great that you went over shutter speed, aperture and ISO because those are definitely some of the most important settings if you want to ensure the best possible quality of your pictures, and it allows the photographer more creativity as you can control its appearance much more precisely. But of course, for people who simply want to take pictures for the memories, leaving it in automatic so that the camera can decide what these settings should be is perfectly fine too.
    I’m not quite sure what ICT is all about, so I’m eager to read your future research and learn more!

    Good luck!

  3. Hello Wallace!

    I really enjoyed reading your research post because I just recently have entered the photography world. Specifically, the film photography world. I had never much experience with digital cameras in the past, but I’ve always been intrigued by film. So, when my parents gifted me a film camera a couple of months ago, I was very excited.

    Today, there are many types of cameras: digital, film, disposable, and even the cameras on the back of modern cellphones. Maybe in your next post, you can compare some of these types!

    Great job!
