This lecture is talking about photography. Photography is about employed in many fields of science, manufacturing and business, such as art, film, video production, hobby or communication. In the lesson, we did many activities to know about what the lecture wanted to talk about. For example, took a selfie and took a picture who you were sitting next to you. I thought the interesting thing is what is the difference between Selfie and self-portrait in the lecture.
SELFIE AND SELF-PORTRAIT
These two photos are the most famous ‘selfie’ and ‘self-portrait’ in the world.
- SELFIE: is loosely defined as a photograph taken by oneself at arm’s length or in a mirror.
- SELF-PORTRAIT: is generally considered to be with a camera that is not held by the person, such as on a tripod and usually triggered by the self-timer in the camera.
Selfie has had a long history already, it is like portraiture. Since nineteenth centurythe of portraiture was similar with a selfie , until now it has evolved to other ways to present. It has begun a popular culture and cause many influences in the world. No matter is ‘selfie’ or ‘self-portrait’, they are not like traditional that one. In these few years, smartphone and any media have been popular in the world. Many people like to use the filter to add into their photos, besides other people like to use the application to edit their photos reach what effect and quality they want.
