How to…

It’s hard to take a photo of a camera. So I took one with my iPhone…
I’ll be learning to shoot on this guy this week. I’m trying to decide which camera to buy and one my friends/clients is letting me borrow hers (Thanks, Missy!) to help figure it out. This thing might be a little too much camera for me and my “skills”. We’ll see how it goes…

  1. oooo, pretty! new toys are fun 🙂

  2. that’s a great camera! it’ll be hard for you to go back to a lesser one. i always say go with canon though…they are just such great cameras.

  4. It’s not too complicated, just remember the three refraction rules for a converging lens:
    1. Any incident ray traveling parallel to the principal axis of a converging lens will refract through the lens and travel through the focal point on the opposite side of the lens.
    2. Any incident ray traveling through the focal point on the way to the lens will refract through the lens and travel parallel to the principal axis.
    3. An incident ray that passes through the center of the lens will in affect continue in the same direction that it had when it entered the lens.

    Not to be confused with the three refraction rules for a diverging lens
    1. Any incident ray traveling parallel to the principal axis of a diverging lens will refract through the lens and travel in line with the focal point (i.e., in a direction such that its extension will pass through the focal point).
    2. Any incident ray traveling towards the focal point on the way to the lens will refract through the lens and travel parallel to the principal axis.
    3. An incident ray that passes through the center of the lens will in affect continue in the same direction that it had when it entered the lens.

    Keep these in mind and you’ll do fine 🙂
