During the movie, I learned so much about National Geographic and their photographers. An interesting fact that I learned while watching the movie is how devoted the photographers are. For example, one photographer has had malaria twelve times because of all the remote places he visited. Another detail about the life of photographers is how much they travel just to get a couple good shots.The process of taking the pictures to printing them out takes at least a year, which is a long time if you think about how fast it took to take that one specific photograph. Lastly, the dedication and patience of photographers are amazing, most times it takes at least 2-3 weeks to get one good shot or longer depending on what they want. To become a professional photographer takes a lot of dedication, patience, and hard work, however, if you love taking photos and traveling becoming a professional photographer is perfect.
During this project, I learned a lot about photography and about the founders of photography. An interesting fact I learned about Alfred Stieglitz was, he eventually married Georgia O' Keeffe the famous artist. Another fact that I learned while doing the project was Jerry Uelsmann, he founded photo-shop. Jerry Uelsmann cut out pieces of other pictures and pasted them onto other photos to make it look like the photoshopped pictures we have now. Another interesting fact, is the first camera phone could only hold enough for 10 pictures and you couldn't see them until you plugged them into the computer. All of these facts range from different time periods, however, they all stuck to me because of how different photography was back then back then or just random facts I found interesting.
