Silver Base to Digital Photography

Words: 1645 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 59810974

Digital photography leaves the mechanical work in the "hands" of the camera and the photographer has only to choose the visual effect, without going through the process of adjusting devices that capture it. This also implies that the image is more accurate to the original, since digital cameras can not be "tricked" as manual cameras could be. By changing the time of exposure, for example, a clever artist could forge the light and contrast of the image, to make it harder or sharper, for the benefit of the result.

As much as it was already the most popular art, photography has become even more accessible with the invention of digital technology. It allows the photographer to make many variations of the same photo without wasting expensive material in the process. Even from the very beginning of photography, when the daguerreotype was the only version available, those that complained insisted on…… [Read More]

In this image a large group of Pakistani people are in a mob/protest that is clearly against the United States, most likely relating to the U.S.'s use of Pakistan in conducting its war against the Taliban in Afghanistan. This is known because at the center of the group is a large, upside down American flag being burned and the surrounding individuals cheering in support.

Within this crowd are numerous cameras and video recorders capturing the flag burning, showing that the act is being done not for the individuals at the event but for the effect it will have on the individuals watching its portrayal through video, photos and news. If this image was not broadcast, then it would have a limited effect as its message would be only conveyed to those who already support the group's cause. However, by taping it and broadcasting it, it can be viewed by a…… [Read More]

One typically does not consider the floral designs required by Barnsdall to be a good match for the harsh lines and square angles used in house.

In order to accommodate the needs of the design and those of the owner, Wright used hollyhocks and floral designs to help soften the harsh lines created by the concrete. This allowed the work to flow, rather than to bring out the contrast created by these two opposing elements. Contrast is the key to Wright's work. However, this is difficult ground from a design perspective, as one must be careful not to make the building seem out of place in the natural landscape. Consider the following photo and the contrast between the concrete walls set against the rolling green hills in the background.

To Publish or Not

Publish or Not to Publish?

One of the recurring ethical dilemmas in journalism is whether or not to publish photographs that may be considered offensive to some portion of the public, may promote the goal of a person who committed an offense, or that are extremely violent or graphic. This dilemma has recently recurred in debate surrounding the printing or distribution of photographs or videotapes that show the death of Joshua Bernard and the beheading of James Foley by the terrorist organization, Isis. Many people feel that distributing these photos is disrespectful, not only to the victims, but also to their family members. They believe that the victims deserve to be remembered in life and not reduced to a victim status. Other people worry that distributing images of something like a soldier's death or a beheadings will actually promote hostile goals, by encouraging fear in the population. While those concerns…… [Read More]

song paparazzi Lady Gaga. I originally submitted instructor file I uploading. He replied back: You made a small, important mistake. Your essay song. What song? What meaning song? What song?

Lady Gaga's song "Paparazzi"

Lady Gaga's song "Paparazzi" is written in the voice of an obsessed lover. The female speaker literally and figuratively compares herself to a dedicated paparazzo, stalking her victim: "I'm your biggest fan/I'll follow you until you love me/Papa-paparazzi." On one hand, the voice of the speaker is completely submissive. She is entirely enthralled with her subject and his 'biggest fan.' However, the determination to follow him until he loves her suggests a strong, possessive quality to her love.

Paparazzi are parasites, living off celebrities rather than creating their own fame. Celebrities do not really love paparazzi but try to avoid them, even though Gaga compares her determination to be absorbed in the orbit of her lover…… [Read More]

Cross-Media Response to Digital Manipulation of Still and Moving Images" was originally published in the Fall of 1996 by the Journal of Broadcasting & Electronic Media. The primary author of the study, George Albert Gladney, holds a Ph.D. In Communication and serves as the Assistant Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Communication & Mass Media at the University of Wyoming, Laramie. The secondary author, Matthew C. Ehrlich, also holds Ph.D. In Communication and researches the sociological attributes of mass media communicators. The article presents a multitude of scientific research, including detailed "survey data for a cross-media comparison between newspaper photo editors and television news directors to assess the ethical response to digital image processing and enhancement technology," to support the contention "that television news directors tend toward less strict ethical standards in application of the technology" (Gladney and Ehrlich 496).

pictures can speak louder than words, and this is clear in the photo entitled "U.S. Navy: An aerial view of damage to Wakuya, Japan after a 9 magnitude tsunami." The photo initially looks like picture of a tiny child's toy boat, which is floating in a muddy sea of debris. The boat looks brave and cheery, as it floats amidst the muck, garbage, and flotsam and jetsam of people's belongings. However, the first, deceptive glance of the photograph quickly ebbs away as the viewer becomes aware that he or she is bearing of witness to one of the greatest human tragedies to strike a nation, as a result of a natural disaster, in the 21st century. The photograph highlights the smallness and vulnerability of the human condition in the face of epic destruction beyond human control.

Turkish Youth Protests

"The rise of a global youth culture in recent decades suggests greater convergence of the experiences of young people in global cities. In Turkey, mass-based youth subcultures with links to the diaspora are emerging, paralleling the fragmentation of Turkish society…Turkish youth are torn between hopes of constructing a more participatory public sphere and disillusionment with the nation-state as the embodiment of modernity…" (Neyzi, 2001, 412).

At no time in the recent past has the world been able to see the raging protests of Turkish youth like what has been viewed over the past few days and weeks. However, many citizens with television sets in Turkey did not see the mass demonstrations by youthful protesters in Istanbul because journalists were afraid to show the live clashes with police on television. According to journalist Barak Ravid, "…many Turkish television channels hesitated to report on the protests for many long…… [Read More]

Fashion has been on people's minds since time immemorial. Whether man, woman, child or elderly, individuals have sought to express themselves through how they dressed, one more conservative, the other extravagant and glamorous. Nowadays, it's quite a technique to skillfully attempt to dress people when being dressed sometimes implies having no clothing whatsoever. This effect is accurately illustrated in Picture 1 in which a marrying couple seem to be wearing, what looks like a uniform for the man, and a dressing gown for the woman. While one does notice the boxer shorts on the man and the extension of a real dress on the woman, the effect is nevertheless substantial. Deeply rooted in ritualized tribalists cultures, body painting nowadays stands for various purposes: it has come to represent either a form of extravaganza, or means by which people choose…… [Read More]

Fuji Xerox

Sub-Strategic Alliances & Growth.

The joint venture between Xerox and Fuji Photo Film to form Fuji Xerox was considered by many to be one of the most successful joint ventures between an American and Japanese company in history. The purpose of the strategic alliance was to overcome growing competition in the global marketplace. Fuji Xerox is only one portion of the Xerox Group, which is comprised of several larger divisions. Much of the competition that Fuji Xerox hoped to overcome was based in Japan. When Xerox began to see competitors such as Canon and Ricoh growing exponentially through exports, they realized that they had to make major changes in order to remain competitors of scale.

Fuji Xerox uses a single point design and manufacturing approach, similar to Canon's. However, externalities and additions in key export locations now call for local manufacturing and development in the U.S. Up to…… [Read More]

Edwards told the police that he had been held captive in the apartment of Jeffrey Dahmer, who had threatened to kill Edwards. When the police interviewed Dahmer, he tried to pass off the incident as a simple misunderstanding, but when the police discovered some photos of dismembered body parts, they immediately arrested him. Upon a further search, police discovered photo albums of dismembered victims, as well as body parts littered throughout the apartment.

The use of the word MY also suggests that the speaker feels a sense of possession towards the assistant, thus the assistant's departure is seen as a loss of control, not merely a setback to the project as he says.

7. it's an animal urge, Puff. it's nothing to be ashamed of (65)

The word Puff suggests an animal, even if Puff is not an animal -- Puff is being assured that acting like an animal is natural, and not worthy of shame, despite Puff's feelings to the contrary and the ambiguous quality of Puff's name.

8. Remember, when in doubt: don't ever do what you really want to do (69)

This statement goes against the assurances of the naturalness of human behavior and impulses -- go against one's human or animal nature, it suggests, and repress and resist gut instincts. Instead, follow societal dictates and one's own superego.

Framing of these images is simple, which makes them even more stunning and arresting in real life. If the viewer has only seen some of Adams' work reproduced in posters and prints, these original photographs can be extremely impressive and magnetizing. Some of them seem larger than life, and they all show the incredible detail and lighting that mark all of Adams' work. It is difficult not to imagine how long the photographer waited to get just the right light, just the right angle, and just the right exposure to create these works of art, and it is hard to be inspired as you view these classic images of some of the most beautiful spots in America.

The exhibit calls Adams a "populist hero" who inspired others to enjoy and advocate for America's National Parks. Adams was always very open about his use of "Photogenia" in his photos, he manipulated…… [Read More]

In this regard, Wexler (2002), points out that the "reliance by many deeply religious citizens on religious sources of authority raises important civic problems" (p. 1159). Among these problems is the ability of the state to "see your face" when it comes to providing official forms of identification that are routinely used by law enforcement authorities. Indeed, taken to its logical extreme, other religious adherents could present themselves for driver's license photographs wearing Halloween masks or nothing at all, claiming religious authority for such actions. It is a matter of dispute, however, whether the Koran demands that Muslim women cover themselves. Furthermore, the issue of whether the plaintiff's claims that religious imprecations prohibited her from having her face photographed were carefully considered by Judge Thorpe but were found to either be spurious in the instant case or otherwise open to interpretation. As Weiner (2004) points out, the requirement to wear…… [Read More]

S. health regulators have warned drug maker Bayer over quality control issues at its manufacturing plant in Germany. The Food and Drug Administration says that its inspectors discovered testing problems at the company's plant in Berghamen, Germany. FDA inspectors claimed that the company measured the quality of its drug ingredients based on an average of several samples, instead of reporting individual tests results (Perrone, 2009).

Bayer produces the popular birth control pills Yasmin and Yaz. After reviewing all drug batches of these that were shipped to the U.S. between 2007 and 2009, Bayer responded to the FDA in an April saying that the quality of those batches were not affected. The FDA on the other hand disagreed with Bayer's conclusion. The FDA has asked Bayer to supply a full list of all shipments to the U.S. In which they used the averaging method and provide a plan to prevent the…… [Read More]

Brookman reports that "in August 1942 Parks listened as Watson told her story. 'She had struggled alone after her mother had died and her father had been killed by a lynch mob,' he recalls. 'She had gone through high school, married and become pregnant. Her husband was accidentally shot to death two days before the daughter was born. By the time the daughter was eighteen she had given birth to two illegitimate children, dying two weeks after the second child's birth.

FDI Ireland Experienced a Brief Economic Boom

FDI

Ireland experienced a brief economic boom in the mid-1990s, which was a time of relative boom across the Western world. A number of factors contributed to this boom, including a low corporate tax environment, and Ireland positioning itself as a source of foreign direct investment from the U.S. In particular (EC, nd). With an educated, English-speaking workforce and increasing labour productivity, Ireland was successful in repositioning itself as a low-cost gateway to the European market for American firms. This boom, however, created a bubble in the real estate market. Combined with increasing wages, inflationary conditions were created that reduced the ability of Ireland to compete as a low-cost gateway. Already facing the sort of conditions that would constrain FDI, Ireland saw its foreign direct investment collapse with the onset of the Great Recession (Ibid).

Ireland responded to the crisis with an austerity program. This included dramatically cutting public expenditures…… [Read More]

Richard Avedon's photograph "Dovima with Elephants" was taken in Paris, France during the month of August in 1955. It was a commercial piece for Harper's Bazaar to promote the work of Christian Dior. The picture was taken with trained circus elephants that are visibly shackled while the woman at the center is not, indicating the underlying social tension and low position of women during the period, although that might not have been realized at the time the photograph was taken. The model Dovima, who was born Dorothy Juba, is wearing a whit Dior evening gown and, as the title of the picture suggests, she is surrounded on both sides by large elephants.

Myths

Myth of Marriage and Children

Joseph Campbell's The Power of Myth is a book that can potentially transform the reader's consciousness. Beyond being informative, Campbell's analysis of cultural myths is profound; it provokes genuine introspection. The author refers to the spiritual in whatever he speaks about, and yet he never lapses into religious diatribe or dogma. Subjects like marriage are elevated beyond the social to the psycho-spiritual. For example, he calls marriage "primarily a spiritual exercise, and the society is supposed to help us have the realization. Man should not be in service to society, society should be in the service of man," (8).

In light of modern society, Campbell's words hold new meaning. In America, we have few true rituals because we have turned our attention outward instead of inward. The wisdom of life is being denigrated through a preoccupation with technology and material goods. There is little…… [Read More]

employee theft has been reported within ten of the companies that have been our clients. In analyzing the security practices of these ten companies, we have further learned that each of them requires its employees to wear photo identification badges while at work. In the future, therefore, we should recommend the use of such identification badges to all our clients"

This argument presents us with information, from which it derives a premise and makes a recommendation. The six years of research indicating no employee theft and the existence of the identification badges are the points that it starts with, and from this it derives the implied premise that employee theft is perfectly correlated with the issuance of identification badges. That is to say, employee theft exists or does not exist based on whether or not there are identification badges used. The conclusion is that the methodology of preventing theft through…… [Read More]

Syrian Conflict

The Syrian Civil War has produced a profound effect on the world at large, especially on the countries that immediately surround this nation. This martial encounter began in earnest in the early part of the present decade, and currently shows no signs of coming to an end. As such, there are a number of refugees and Syrian citizens who have attempted to flee the ravages of war by migrating to other countries. Such a mass exodus -- which continues to this day -- has not only produced a profound effect on Syria itself, but also on the countries in which refugees have attempted to procure shelter in. There are various aspects of this migration that inherently affects the refugees but also the countries in which they have moved to -- and which produce a ripple effect on the various warring parties within Syria as well.

At the same time, he was spent six hours of practice and three hours of conditioning each week. At age fourteen, Federer became the national junior champion of Switzerland, and from there, his luck and winnings grew.

We are constantly exposed to visual rhetoric when we read magazines, watch TV, or travel down a city street, in the form advertisements for products and services. These ads are created by corporations, non-profits, and the government, and their purpose is to provide information and/or persuade you, the audience, to pay attention and possibly become interested in their products or services. The non-profit called "The Shelter Pet Project" represents a collaborative effort between the U.S. Humane Society, Maddie's Fund, and the Ad Council in order to promote pet adoption from shelters as the first choice for prospective pet owners ("Campaign fact sheet").

Community Participation

Examining & Weighing Community Participation

Community means more than people who live in proximity and occupy the same relative environment. Community, when in reference to terms such as community participation and community engagement, means several orders of interaction and motivation. People who participate in their communities are internally motivated. They care about the community socially, culturally, environmentally, economically, and otherwise; their motivation extends into action that supports their belief in their community. Community participation in many parts of the world may be the best and fastest ways for communities to rectify their own problems and establish firm ties with public administration and government.

Bureaucracy, administration, politics, and other factors often interfere with communities receiving the assistance or allocation of resources necessary to solve a problem.

Political Ecology

Words: 1734 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 36307258

Apolitical Ecology

What is apolitical ecology? Logically it would seem that anything apolitical would be non-political. Ecology without politics would then be an approach to environmental and conservation concerns without any ideology attached to that approach. To wit, an example of apolitical ecology would seem to be those who objectively review the empirical data for climate change objectively. Over 190 scientists have been working on data related to the overheated planet for thirty years, and hence, their view of ecology is apolitical. However, logic in this case is not necessarily the right way to define apolitical ecology.

Author Robbins writes in Chapter 1 ("Political vs. Apolitical Ecologies") that there are myriad numbers of definitions for "political ecology" but basically it is the complex relationship between society and nature. And moreover, Robbins explains, because exploding populations of "impoverished African people" are negatively impacting the environment, there is a "declining biodiversity" and…… [Read More]

Growing Market Share at Olympus

When you can buy a Barbie doll that doubles as a video camera, I think that it's official that anything can be a camera. -- Jason Griffey, 2012

The heyday of amateur single lens reflex cameras and developable film has passed, replaced by increasingly sophisticated cameras in all types of handheld wireless devices, especially smartphones. Some camera manufacturers have responded to these trends in different ways, with some changing to digitally-based technologies for their cameras while others have simply gone out of business. Major manufacturers such as Olympus have a number of business lines besides amateur photography, but even these firms are struggling to stay afloat on a digital sea of photographic technology. To determine what these companies should do in the face of these trends, this paper provides a review of the relevant literature concerning the kind of markets in which Olympus sells cameras…… [Read More]

Police Corruption and Citizen Complaints Relative to Ethnicity

Police has a rather crucial role to play in the society. However, at more than one occasions, people have lodged complaints against police officers. Rather than maintaining justice and equality, police offers are discriminating against people. This problem should be addressed as priority since the role of the police can be tainted if such events keep on taking place.

A contemporary event

The case of George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin is a classic example of police corruption regarding ethnicity. Even though George Zimmerman was charged as "not guilty," many people are against this decision. This shooting took place on the night of February 26, 2012 in Sanford, Florida. Trayvon Martin was a seventeen-year-old high school student who was heading back from a local store to his house.

Premature Sexualisation

Public hysteria or "sex panic" involving the "sexualisation" of children may be getting a decent outing in Australia at the present moment, but it is certainly nothing new: fifty years ago it was Elvis Presley's hips that portended imminent moral collapse, two hundred and fifty and a dance craze called the "waltz" was considered immodest and the "emo kids" of the late eighteenth century were committing suicide after reading The Sorrows of Young Werther. The more recent alarmism -- typified by Emma Rush and Andrea La Nauze's discussion paper on the "sexualisation of children" in the media, or Miranda Devine's predictable whipping-up of outrage over the 2008 Bill Henson photo exhibition -- is nothing new in this regard.

Consumption

Conspicuous consumption is unapologetic, unrestrained, and unabashed consumerism: buying things for the sake of buying them without actually needing them. It is conspicuous because of the social status one perceives when buying certain products. Conspicuous consumption as a social norm fuels marketing, and influences purchasing decisions. A brand name item costs ten times more than a generic, but the logo has status and the consumer is willing to pay more for it.

Conspicuous leisure is also used to convey social class status. It shows that the person has so much money, that they can afford to waste their time instead of working. Types of conspicuous leisure range from lounging in the sun, to riding a $10,000 mountain bike all day, to idly sitting in a cafe. Participants of conspicuous leisure vary considerably in terms of demographic markers, and in fact, some are not even wealthy.

The effects of the Oil Industry on the Environment

In spite of the fact that society has experienced significant moral progress in the recent decades, people continue to associate well-being with financial profits regardless of the effects that their actions have on society and this is reflected by the fact that the oil industry has inflicted great damage on the environment in the last few years. The fact that society has come to depend on oil makes it especially difficult for someone to experience positive results as a result of criticizing individuals involved in the oil business. Communities who have access to free oil wells are privileged and society has virtually learnt to exploit any oil source that it can possibly find. This has devastating consequences on the…… [Read More]

The "self-portraits" might perhaps be viewed in terms of the artist's own past illnesses: At 37, Taylor-Woods, having already survived both colon cancer and breast cancer, likely understands, on personal level, the state of "suspense" between sickness and health, life and death. She may, then, have been "bound" to breast cancer (the invisible ropes may symbolize the disease), cured of it, and her body "released to freedom." In my opinion, however, an artistic weakness of these pictures is that their esthetics and size make them look less like serious art than fashion advertisements for bras and panties! For me, "Self-Portrait Suspended" is the least effective of the three exhibition subjects. The tension in the subject's body also appears to be that of someone hanging from ropes (which she in fact was); the tautness of her body kept me from "suspending my disbelief" (so to speak) that she was hanging in…… [Read More]

For example, the ethnic client who paints a huge red heart with an arrow piercing its center is communicating a universally understood message: I have been affected by love/passion/emotion.

Natalie Rogers, founder of the Person Centered Expressive Therapy Institute is a strong proponent of expressive art. In this form of art therapy, the ethnic client is encouraged to "express inner thoughts by creating outer forms."

When treating a client with art therapy, Ms. Rogers uses many techniques of expressive art: drawing, coloring, dancing, musical demonstrations, and the like.

Once these exercises are completed, the participants are encouraged to explore the nuances involved in the interaction: did communication occur? Was it a pleasant experience? Were boundaries an issue? Who led? Who followed?

Despite the fact that this work is not done solely with ethnically displaced clients, the premise remains the same; through expressive creativity, one's self may be realized, recognized, and…… [Read More]

The only image from the time that we have of the original dress is in the film poster (Image 5), where one can see that the dress showed quite a big of leg, which was considered improper and that is why the film commissioned a tailor to sew up Givenchy's original design, as to not offend anybody in the audience. What a pity, for today, the dress would perhaps be ever-more popular.

In the third image, however, which is the picture of the dress as seen at Christie's, one can see that one of the photos shows the dress with the slit.

Consumption and Mass Media

What is conspicuous consumption? How does conspicuous consumption influence purchasing decisions? Think about a high-priced item (Rolex) that you would like to buy. To what extent could conspicuous consumption affect your decision?

Conspicuous consumption is consumption for the sake of impressing observers. Most consumers buy Rolex watches not because of Rolex's quality, but because the brand signifies that the purchaser is wealthy enough to afford a Rolex. Although an extremely cheap watch and an expensive watch may vary in terms of their quality, the expense of a Rolex cannot be justified by quality alone. Someone who wishes to signify his social class and economic status to friends and associates 'in the know' buys a Rolex; without these signifiers the Rolex means nothing.

Information obtained via satellite is shared with environmental protection agencies. Created by a Stanford scientist to study the depletion of the Amazon rainforest, this method of satellite detection of aerosols could help fight against illegal logging (Wang 2004).

Thus the satellites have a large affect on the rain forests and could have more in the future, in determining how much water will be needed, how the land may be saved from deforestation, how water affects the phenology (plant life) of the forests, and whether there will be enough rainfall for the forest to survive.

As a result, it is reasonable to suggest that many of these educational institutions failed to realize the full spectrum of benefits that can accrue to the effective use of class scheduling software applications based on an inappropriate selection or internal factors that constrained its implementation and use.

Do Pictures Tell the Most Important Part of the Story?

In "Boston Photographs," writer Nora Ephron makes a case supporting the decision by newspaper editors to print a photo trilogy showing the tragic moments leading up to the death of a young mother. At the time the photos were printed, in over four hundred newspapers across the nation, there was great controversy. Readers expressed in phone calls and letters to the editor. Some editors chose not to print the photos at all.

Ephron argued that since death is part of life, readers should not be sheltered from it. She asked why photos from fatal car accidents show the wrecked vehicles and not the victims. Mangled steel is worthless; a human life is priceless. Why not capture on film the loss of that which is truly precious?

Shu Uemura was an internationally renowned Japanese makeup artist and the founder of the famous cosmetics line of the same name. Shu Uemura's interest in makeup artistry began as a teenager as he was recovering from a severe illness (Shilling, 2008). He entered the world of film makeup in 1957 working as a makeup artist for the film "Joe butterfly" (Associated Press, 2008). Shu Uemura left Japan and moved to the United States so that he could break into the film and television makeup business. He became one of the most famous makeup artists in Hollywood.

Incoming photons were either reflected off of the initial detector surface or they passed directly through the device without being absorbed by the nanowire filament. Optical transmission losses such as these represented a major stumbling block for researchers intent on improving the efficiency of these systems, which had only been able to reach efficiencies of around 20% (Gawel 25; Rosfjord et al. 528). Efficiencies as low as this do not represent sufficient sensitivity for these photo-detectors to be effectively implemented in interplanetary communications.

The design of the MIT photo-detector is relatively simple from an engineering standpoint. This is especially true considering the high degree of efficiency it is capable of producing. Of course, the simplicity of the design belies the significant calibration the device requires: the nanowire must be cooled to almost absolute zero, the glass gap of the photon trap must be a very specific function of the wavelength…… [Read More]
