1. What are your favorite kinds of photography?

I really like all forms of photography. Lately my interests are Travel, Portrait, Spirit, Astrophotography, Photo Essay, Landscape. I'd love to study underwater and microscopic photography someday.

2. How come you have so many prime lenses?

Bigger apertures, tack sharpness, creamy bokeh and color excellent rendition. PLUS it keeps you fit on account of its manual zoom The 24mm-70mm 2.8 only made the cut because of its versatility.

3. Why is photography important for you?

There are many answers to this question. You can say that I have a very weak memory. Hence if I will not take the photographs then you will not have any past. Hence photography is important to remember the past. You should know that this is not just your problem. It is the problem of almost all the people and that is why photography is quite important.

4. When did you become interesting in the field of photography?

You should know that if any person is doing something since his childhood then he will definitely be encouraged. Hence the perfect answer to this question is that you have interest in this profession ever since you were twelve years old.

5. What did you do to gain so much of knowledge in this area?

The answer which you have given to the above question is simply majestic and I assure you that you will definitely be asked this question. Just say that you attained this much of knowledge through studies. I am quite fond of reading books.

6. What is your knowledge in this area?

You are required to recite all the techniques which you know about the photography. One such answer can be, “I have knowledge in darkroom photography and mainly in specialist techniques, photographic theory as well as some of the more scientific aspects of photography and a specialism in substitute photographic processes”. This will certainly be a terrific answer.

7. Where did you study photography?

Just recite all the places where you have studied photography and do not waste your time on this question if you have not been part of a good collage.

8. Does depth of field really extend 2/3 behind the subject and 1/3 in front?

This often cited rule of thumb cannot possibly be right in general, as a simple thought experiment proves: When you have focused your lens at the hyperfocal distance, depth of field extends infinitely far back. If the 2/3 rule were true, then depth of field would need to extend infinitely far in front as well (since 1/3 of infinity is still infinity), and objects behind the camera would need to be in focus. This is obviously ridiculous, so the 2/3 rule cannot be right in general.

9. What is the minimum shutter speed I should use to avoid blurry photos due to camera shake?

This depends upon a number of factors including the focal length, the steadiness of your hands, and vibrations caused by the mechanical parts of your camera, e.g., mirror slap in SLRs. If your lens has a (35 mm equivalent) focal length of X mm, then a good rule of thumb is to shoot at 1/X or faster. Small movements of the camera shift the image more at long focal lengths.

10. ow do I reduce glare off chrome, water, etc.?

Try a polarizing filter, also called a polarizer. If you have an SLR which uses phase detection for autofocus (most do), then you'll need to get a circular polarizer to avoid conflicts with your autofocus mechanism. I haven't tried it myself, but a circular polarizer probably is not necessary with non-SLR digital cameras.
