Learning Event 1:
DESCRIBE THE THEORY OF EXPOSURE AND EXPLAIN THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE EXPOSURE
When light strikes a piece of film a latent image (invisible image) is
formed. This image is called "latent" because it cannot be seen in the film
until it is "developed" by treating the film with special chemicals.
action of development causes the latent image to become visible in
proportion to how much light struck the film in the first place.
parts of the film which received a great deal of light darken considerably,
while those struck by relatively little light darken only slightly.
striking of film by light is called "exposure" (fig 1-1).
