QUIZ
« on: June 11, 2011, 08:17:36 AM »
The local photography club was meeting and I did not have a particular topic to do or talk about, so I thought we could do a quiz. I searched the internet and came quickly up with some questions/answers. Answers in my case are more important, because I still have loads of questions! I thought it might be nice to share these q/a's with all of you. I will post the questions and a week later I will post the answers with the next set of questions. Let me know what you think about this.

First set of 10 questions (1)


1. Dr Edwin Land invented the instant camera in which decade?
2. Which photographic process was first demonstrated in 1962?
3. Who photographed the playboy centrefolds?
4. The first successful photograph required how long an exposure time?
5. In photography, what does the term SLR mean?
6. Whose photograph has appeared most often on page 3 of the sun?
7. Who was the world's most photographed woman?
8. What did the Lumiere brothers invent in 1895?
9. Which super hero worked as a photographer for the Daily Bugle?
10. In which year was the first successful photograph taken? 1807, 1827, 1882?

6 - photographer or model?

IIRC the main photographer used to be a bloke with a girl's name.  Beverley somebody?

Model - probs Samantha Fox or somebody like that.  She had a relatively long "career".

Well I think I know 3, can guess at a couplemore  but being the pedant I am in quizzes I`d have to ask in no 10  in whose eyes was it judged "successful". Not all might judge any shot of mine "successful" but I might. Then again  ;)

That's always what's quoted - but I wonder about Indian stars.  1.1 billion people taking pictures of politicians and movie stars.  If she'd lived 10 years later (when everybody at her rallies would have had digital cameras) then my money would be on Indira Gandhi.  Aishwarya Rai has to be a contender.

Surely the Queen would be somewhere up there. Being 85 and photographed from being a baby and now with the advent of digital having thousands of pictures taken when she does her official functions through the year here and abroad.

The operative word is "WAS" the most photographed woman. Marilyn perhaps?

Jinky, I'll see your pedantic and raise you a didactic.

If the operative word is 'was' then that would be the first woman ever photographed - hers would be the only one in existence (so arguably Dorothy Draper, 1839), and so she would be the one . . .

The question can't really say 'was' without clarifying 'when'; ie the start and finish dates.
