History of Photography

  1. The phone camera
  2. National geographic newspaper
  3. Canon EOS 5D

Out of these 3 inventions the phone camera has to be the most impacted invention because I always have my phone on me. When I want to capture a moment, I can always pull out my phone and take a picture. You’ll always have the picture. The pictures or video lasts longer than your memory. If the phone camera was not invented taking pictures whenever would be difficult.

Another great invention is the Canon cameras because are one of the best cameras. Their camera history last’s really long. Many photographers use the Canon camera. National geographic is an amazing newspaper. This newspaper has geographic, popular science, world history, cultural events, and photography.

Camera Modes

Automatic mode- automatic mode tells the camera what is the best “judgement” to shutter speed, aperture, white balance, focus/flash, and ISO. In this mode you are guessing at any extra information you want to add in the camera. In most cameras this mode allows to override flash and or change it to red eye reduction.

Portrait mode- when on this mode the camera will automatically select a large or small aperture, helping to keep the background out of focus (depth of field) so the subject is the only thing in focus. This mode works best for photographers taking portraits.

Macro mode- allows you to move closer into the subject to take close up pictures. This mode is nice for shooting pictures of flowers, insects, or small/smaller objects.

Landscape mode- the camera has a smaller aperture. This mode is ideally used for wide scenes, ” particularly those with points of interest at different distances from the camera.”

Sports mode- used for moving objects for playing sports, cars and pets. This mode attempts to freeze the action in shutter speed.

Night mode- this mode is fun to mess around with for capturing colorful and interesting pictures. Using with a tripod your background would be blurred.

Movie mode- this mode is used for capturing still images to capturing moving images. Captures movie recording and sound.

Aperture priority mode- this mode is semi-automatic. You choose the aperture mode then the camera chooses the rest.

Shutter priority mode- when you select a shutter speed, then the camera chooses the rest. Choose a slower shutter speed for lower light.

Program mode- an addition to auto mode. More features to control flash, white balance, ISO.

Manual mode- is used for full control over the camera. You have full control over the shutter speed, ISO, aperture, white balance and flash.

Conceptual self-portrait


This photo represents me in a couple ways. I love to sleep. And I love cats. I love not being stressed. But I mostly love not having to do things. Sleep is one of my favorite things to do because it’s stress free. Cats are my favorite animals. I am a cats person. Cats love to sleep. And I just so happen to love sleep.
