  1. What is street photography? Street photography is when the photographer goes out into a public domain to capture people in a typically unposed position in order to document or say something about an aspect of humanity or society.
  2. Explain what aperture and shutter speed are: Aperture is how wide or closed the diameter of the lens is, thus determining how much light is let in. Aperture is expressed in F-stop, but they have an inverse relationship. The smaller the F-stop number, the wider the diameter of the lens, and the larger the F-stop number, the smaller the diameter. Shutter speed is how fast or slow the lens opens and closes. A faster shutter speed better captures things in motion and the subject will be in focus and crisp.
  3. Explain the difference between a PSD file and a RAW file: A PSD file is one that has been worked on in layers in photoshop while a RAW file is the largest file size that one can shoot in. A RAW file captures images right off of the sensor.
