  • Analog Image Into A Digital Image
    2,120 words
    The Process and Difference of Digital Imaging and Their Effects The traditional photographic process that has defined image reproduction for over 150 years involves a long drawn out series of chemical reactions beginning with the capture of light on silver film and ending with the fixing of the image onto paper or a transparency through the development processing.

    Seeing isn't always believingUnderexposededited by Colin Jacobson Vision On 35, pp 247 The great lie is that pictures never lie. History can be reconstructed visually in any manner of ways. Scissors, retouching ink and now Photoshop, and similar programs, can allow the cynical to recreate events in the crudest ways. Photographers can be complicit by ignoring some images that do not fit their agenda while focusing on others. Photographers can be manipulated too by governments and organisations th...
  • Bresson Photographs
    397 words
    One of this century's icons in photography Henri-Cartier Bresson, thought to be the Father of modern day Street Photography, transformed the field through his concept of the decisive moment.

  • Photograph's Original Version The Image
    3,670 words
    Memory has been and always will be associated with images. As early as 1896, leading psychologists were arguing that memory was nothing more than a continuous exchange of images. (Bergson) Later models of memory describe it as more of an image text; a combination of space and time, and image and word. (Yates) Although image certainly is not the only component of memory, it is undoubtedly an integral and essential part of memory's composition. Photography was first utilized over 100 years ago in ...
  • Student Artists And The Class
    513 words
    The word censorship is a frightening concept in education. One of our roles as Art teachers is to try to make the next generation more open minded, tolerant and respectful of differences, insightful, and creative. The use of overt censorship defeats our ability to do this. We should be creating an environment so that the students themselves know the limits between self- expression and vulgarity, taunting or hurtful acts, or inappropriate behavior. I certainly don't want the next generation of pa...
  • Look At The Picture

    Artist's Statement If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn't need to lug around a camera. ~Lewis Hine Any photograph I take I want one to dissect their own imagination, searching within themselves the story the picture tells, to draw out ones imagination. To taste the substance of what the photograph is, what they hear and feel from the image. To not just look at the picture, but to actually see it, and understand it under their own terms. I want someone to look at my art and wonder, what's...

  • Representation Of Images Into Meanings
    801 words
    Symbols and images have a more than significant impact on one's views of the world. Since childhood, a person's brain uses representation of images into meanings to make sense of their world. These images then go on to being either the truth or falsehood and base a person's views of the world for the rest of their life. All this can be explained through the idea of representation of everyday cultural mediums; such as advertisements and the television. Representation is the way a person interpret...
  • Gap Ad

    Advertising relies on the consumers inter peration of their product or corp rate image, but sometimes that interpretation is altered due to the context in which they appear.

Each of these ads intend to pr...

  • Art Photograph
    1,002 words
    Man Ray's Violin D'Ingres is a perfect example of a modernist photograph. Man Ray pushes both how photography is perceived and what is possible within a photograph in this example. Man Ray himself was an American, born as Emmanuel Rudnitsky, but moved to Paris and engaged in very non-American photography. Europe lacked the American ideals about what "strait photography" should be. While American schools of photography believed that an art photograph should only be made with a large negative with...

  • Photographs With Text Accompaniment
    1,086 words
    "The text of the photo-essay typically discloses a certain reserve or modesty in its claim to "speak for" or interpret the images; like the photograph, it admits its inability to appropriate everything that was there to be taken and tries to let the photographs speak for themselves or "look back" at the viewer" (516). In being told to take a position on this very controversial issue, I didn't know whether I agreed, disagreed, or both with W.J. T Mitchell's claim that photographs not accompanied ...
