Photo Drive
Testing and Market Research

The Photo Drive Plus should be tested prior to launch, to ensure that the product is commercially viable. To fail to perform market testing would be taking a significant risk, given the amount of money that it takes to produce the product and execute the launch strategy. There are several different approaches to market testing. One is to make a prototype and test that with members of the target audience, another is to visit trade shows, and another is to simply compare the product to others on the market (No author, 2012).

Comparing the product to others on the market is not a viable strategy when there are no direct existing competitors against which to benchmark. The Photo Drive Plus is a unique product, and while that can help it in the market, this also makes it more difficult for the company to determine whether or not….

photo was taken on one of the happiest days of my childhood, the first day of summer after third grade. I remember waking up with the sunrise that day. My brother and I jumped out of bed when the alarm went off. It was the first day of summer, and we were delighted to see that the sun was shining brightly. Birds chirped madly outside our second floor bedroom window, and my brother and I sat there for a few moments before mom ushered us downstairs for our breakfast. She was as excited as we were that there was no more school for the next three months. She and dad ate their cereal with as much joy as we did, shoveling down every bite with enthusiasm. Dad was the first one to mention the soccer game that afternoon.
So who is going to be there? Is Joey? Dharma? Magdalena?"

Flooding in Bangladesh
The image selected for this particular is a photograph from the Bangladesh flooding that happened in the past hence this is a news photo. It was used to depict the need for the Bangladesh government to invest more in the disaster management projects such as flooding and to show the extent of damage that flooding does both in terms of infrastructure like houses and human displacement as will be discussed below.

The image depicts a mother with a young boy, probably the son floating on top of a makeshift canoe that was made of gunny bags stuffed with some buoyant material, these two are barefooted. This improvised canoe is small, indeed the size of four gunny bags only hence cannot carry many people. There are several houses that are half way submerged into the flood waters and look like the area was an informal settlement area or a….

PAGES 10 WORDS 2750

Life
What we can learn about domestic violence from Maggie's situation is that it can occur at any moment, even when one least suspects it. However, by placing ourselves in situations where things are unstable between members of a home, it creates a situation that is more infused with tension and makes those members vulnerable to an outburst. In Maggie's situation, for example, she is a single mother and still a teenager at age 19. She is practically a child who has been forced into the world of adulthood and motherhood while still a teen. She is seeing a much older man, who is an ex-convict and aged 31. Maggie's husband is estranged and her mother is a victim of drug abuse. She seeks solace in helping someone who, like her mother, has also suffered from drugs. Still, the relationship is not as easy as all that: first of all,….

Since its beginning, animation has intrinsically and historically critiqued this singular hegemonic vision of reality. "In opposition to a singular reality, animation tends toward multiplicity in its critique of photographic naturalism" (Surman, 2005).
Recently there has been a breakthrough that is going to allow eextraordinarily lifelike characters are to begin appearing in films and computer games thanks to a new type of animation technology. This technology enables the minutest details of a facial expression to be captured and recreated. It is considered to be one of the first animations to have overleapt a long-standing barrier known as uncanny valley. This refers to the perception that animation looks less realistic as it approaches human likeness (Richards, 2008).

In producing this process researchers started with a video of an employee talking. Then they broke the facial movements down into dozens of smaller movements, each of which was given a control system. The aim….

traffic photo enforcement a good idea? 2.
Traffic Camera Enforcement

The fact that many states have installed traffic enforcement cameras as a means of regulating traffic has been the subject of many debates in the recent years. Although this is considered to be generally beneficial for individuals engaged in traffic, there are still many people who believe that their privacy is violated by these devices. Also, there is a great deal of individuals who are victims to errors generated by this technology. It is certainly difficult to determine whether the system brings more advantages than it does detriments.

Taking into account the "Big Brother" theory, it is only safe to assume that a system of identifying traffic violators (one that would be error-free) would be more effective and less stressing for motorists if it were to target criminals only and if the persons in charge of operating it were qualified to see….

' Be critical in assessing the content of a photograph and the legitimacy of its sources. The Internet has become notorious for displaying fake and deceptive images. . .Fake photographs that get on the Internet spread like a virus and are difficult to stop (p. 469).
Peres is right. A good reader is a critical reader. Take note of your sources. If you seek to be an aware and informed citizen, it is important to take note that media we are exposed to daily may not be legitimate -- in this case, referring to digital photographs. I suppose one can keep up on reports of cases where once again a doctored photo has coause legal trouble or psychological problems for, say an impressionable young teenage girl, but not all cases are reported, I'm sure. Being aware of this issue is a first step in attempting to discern what you view pictorially….

Semiotic Analysis of a Celebrity Photo

The paper will additionally use semiotics to explore the iconography, ambiguity, mode of address, and connotations. The paper will in effective provide a semiotic reading of the Kim Kardashian fragrance advertisement in question.

Digital Photo Website
PAGES 4 WORDS 1231

photosite.com
The webpage www.photosite.com is a commercial website, which offers services to consumers. Because it is a commercial website, it is difficult to evaluate the website using Jim Kapoun's traditional criteria: accuracy, authority, objectivity, currency, and coverage. However, Kapoun's criteria did provide a good starting point for determining the usefulness and utility of www.photosite.com. In addition to Kapoun's criteria, an attempt to use the services offered by www.photosite.com was helpful in determining whether or not www.photo.site actually delivers the services it offers to consumers.

The author of the pages at www.photosite.com is not specified. However, it is clear that it is a company-owned website. The purpose of the homepage is to greet people and funnel consumers into the appropriate areas on photosite's webpage. It is not clear whether or not the author of the website was technically qualified to write the documents contained therein, however the information contained on the site….

K. Simmons, and Leah played by Olivia Thirlby. Page, above all, takes center stage with her pretty face, her ponytail and hoodie, and her wise cracks, which is quite typical of an intelligent, perceptive high school girl. Cera in Paulie's part brilliantly personifies a track star that is very smart in some ways but knows little or nothing about love, making his character very believable. Juno's parents are equally credible as supporting parents clearly related to Juno's wit, humor and sarcasm.
The dialogue is ideally matched to the situation thanks to the screenplay devised by Diablo Cody. The yuppie couple who wants to adopt Juno's baby are very contrasting characters in this light, Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner impersonating a laid-back writer of jingles for television and his wife, Vanessa, a successful, intense corporate type - yet both characters fit exceedingly well in this film. When Juno encounters Jennifer Garner as….

ECLIPSE
Science behind an APOD Photo

A rare hybrid solar eclipse: Analyzing the science of a photograph

Although solar eclipses are striking in and of themselves, the 2005 eclipse in the NASA photograph was notable given that "a total or an annular eclipse could be seen depending on the observer's location" causing it to be labeled a hybrid eclipse (Nemiroff & Bonnell 2013). A photograph was captured of a total eclipse with the shadow of the moon covering the sun for a few minutes, as taken by a photographer named Fred Espenak on a ship "about 2,200 kilometers west of the Galapagos, the eclipse was total, the lunar silhouette exactly covering the bright solar disk for a few brief moments. His camera captured a picture of totality revealing the extensive solar corona and prominences rising above the Sun's edge (Nemiroff & Bonnell 2013). In contrast, another photographer from a different vantage point near….

Keen observer of human movements, Francesco Jodice provides an atlas of behavior penetrates the spirit of the place." (European House of Photography, 2006)
The technique of timing and anticipation is the most important technique for Jodice with this picture because of his desire to keep the focus on one fixed point. He had to wait for the right time to capture the subjects as well as figure out ahead of time which ons to wait for. Perhaps in his thinking he sought to search for people with similar colored tops. The extended version of the "crossing" pictures shows a woman with a dark blue tank top similar to the "25" man. And the man in white is far off to the end distanced from everyone else.

In photographic situations such as in the photo, where one has minimal to no control or influence of any of the elements in the frame….

Galactic Photo
This image is of the galactic center, which is the center of the Milky Way. The photograph is taken using infrared light, which changes the appearance of dust particles so that they do not obscure the image. As Wright (2003) points out, the universe is filled with dust, which tends to block the light being emitted from light-giving objects like stars. The composition of most galactic dust includes carbon, silicon, and oxygen (Wright, 2003). The dust can grow in molecular clouds, and are created in the atmosphere of red-giant stars that are cooling off (Nemiroff & Bonnell, 2006).

Infrared allows the exposure of rays that are beyond what the naked eye can see. These rays are beyond or below the red part of the color spectrum, which is why the technology is called "infrared." Below infrared rays are microwave and radio waves. Although not visible to the human eye, rays….

Applying Goffman to Modern Advertisements

Goffman and Gender Commercials

Goffman contends that the selection of commercial pictures in advertisements is intentional and serves a specific agenda that is not in service to consumers' well-being or natural interests. He argues this facet of culture is ripe for analysis with respect to topics such as sexuality, gender, power, the means of production, and social reality, among others. His strongest assertions concerns how analysis of the selection of commercial pictures reveals keen insights when comparing them to behavioral practices as experience in everyday interactions. Goffman grounds his hypotheses in concrete methodological practices, with primary aims to locate and define discovery, proof, and presentation. Grounding is his research in established methodology keeps opposition from arguing that his findings and conclusions are wild-eyed, paranoid theories that undermine American culture or the American way of life. He claims that the kind of analysis he proposes can be performed….
