Camera, a camera is a device for recording visual images in the form of a photograph, movie clip, or video signal. During the 4th and 5th centuries Chinese and Greek philosophers described the basic principles of optics and the camera, though they never developed one. The experiment in question is on whether or not a camera’s shutter speed affects the quality of the photograph.

Throughout the mid 1660’s a scientist named Isaac Newton studied the laws of motion. From his studies Newton came up with three laws the first is the Law of inertia, the law of inertia states that and object at rest tends to stay at rest, an object in motion tends to stay in motion, unless acted on by an external source. The second law is that an applied force on an object equals the rate of change of its momentum, with time. Newton’s third and final law is that for every reaction there is an equal and opposite reaction, this means that any force applied to an object has an equivalent force that is applied in the opposite direction, back to the first object. From these laws Newton discovered that white lights is made of other colors from the color spectrum, he eventually discovered that white light is composed of different colors from the color spectrum.

Newton’s discovery brought the idea that maybe this light could be used to make an imprint of an image using a device that could capture light. In 1814 Joseph Niepce created the first camera; the camera was called the -Camera Obscura-. The Camera Obscura required eight hours of exposed light to take a picture and the image would later fade.
Over the years we have had huge advancements in technology, cameras included. Looking at the Camera Obscura which took eight minutes to take a photograph to the...

...t allowed). M (Manual) is a setting that both shutter speed and aperture are independently set manually with accuracy. “P”, (Program), in the “Program” setting you can change every option on your camera to adjust the amount of light the camera gathers, how long the shutter stays open, the shooting mode, and flash are all settings in the Program mode on the camera. There are also other modes like portrait or motion these are the presets of the camera that automatically change things like the shutter speed or the aperture of the lens.
Let’s learn more about the aperture. As we already established the aperture of the camera is the hole in the lens of the camera that changes sizes when you auto adjust your camera. The aperture is calibrated in f/stops and is usually written in numbers like 1.4, 2, and 2.8,4,5,6,8,11,16. The lower the f/stops the wider the aperture lens.
