(Music).

Hi, everyone, and welcome to Let’s Talk in English at The Mall.

My name is Andrea.

I’m so glad you joined us again today.

Now it is Friday.

It is a special Friday because today we are On the Go. Yes!

The title of today’s On the Go is PHOTOGRAPHY.

And we’re going to learn how to talk about cameras and photography.

Today we are going to join Daniel and Winnie On the Go.

And now, here is your FIND IT question.

(Music).

What kind of camera does Winnie have?

What kind of camera does Winnie have?

I know you will find the answer On the Go.

For now let’s go to the Information Desk.

Hello.

(Chinese).

Now let’s begin today’s lesson On the Go.

Hey, Winnie, are you ready for our photo shoot today?

Yes, I am!

Daniel, are you ready to learn about photography?

Do you have your camera, Daniel?

Yes, Winnie, I have my camera and my smile.

Are you ready to take some photos today?

Yes, I am.

Great! Then let’s go...

On the Go!

A person who takes photos is called a photographer.

Anyone can be a photographer.

Some people take photos for their job.

But most people take photos because it’s fun.

Wow, Winnie, that’s a really nice camera.

Well, Daniel, that’s because this is a professional digital camera.

This kind of camera has two parts.

The two parts are the camera body and the lens.

There are many kinds of lenses.

Why do you have different kinds of lenses?

My camera only has one lens.

Well, if I have different lenses, then I can take different kinds of photos.

Oh.

A zoom lens lets you take photos of things far away.

Winnie also has a short lens for taking photos of things close up.

I see.

So your camera can do more things than mine.

That’s true.

But when I first started taking pictures, I used a small digital camera like yours.

It’s great for traveling and learning about photography.

(Music).

Hey, everybody.

My name is Tom.

Well, today we are On the Go, and you just saw Daniel and Winnie.

Now at the beginning of our On the Go, Daniel said, ”I have my camera and my smile.” Now Tom, why did he say that?

Well, he says, ”I have my smile,” because that’s what you do when someone takes a picture of you.

You’re supposed to smile and say cheese.

Cheese.

That’s true.

Well, friends, today we are talking about photography.

And to be able to talk about photography, we do need to look at this word: camera.

And it is a key word.

Say it with us.

camera.

camera.

Now a camera is something that you use to take a picture.

Do you have a camera?

If you have a camera, you can take a picture.

That’s right.

I am taking a picture right now.

Ah, that would be very nice.

This is a camera.

It’s a nice camera.

Ooh, Andrea, I see you have a camera too.

Oh, that’s right.

I also brought a camera.

Now my camera is kind of small, but it also takes some pretty good pictures.

Can you all smile?

Ar you smiling?

Say cheese.

Nice.

Oh, we got some great photos.

That’ll be a good picture.

You take pictures with a camera.

When do you use your camera?

What kind of camera do you have?

Winnie has a bigger camera and Daniel has a smaller camera.

A lot of people like to use digital cameras.

And of course Winnie’s kind of camera needs a lens.

That’s right.

Winnie’s camera is very special.

It has two lenses.

Lens is a key word.

Let’s talk about it.

lens.

lens.

lens.

Now your lens is the part of the camera that brings something closer or further away.

When you want to take a picture of something, the lens can help you take the best picture.

That’s right.

Now when you’re talking about lenses, if it’s two or more, then it’s L-E-N-S-E-S.

But if it’s just one, it’s L-E-N-S - not len, it’s always lens.

There is a lens on this camera.

And small digital cameras like mine only have one lens.

But big cameras like Winnie’s have different lenses.

That’s right.

Winnie has a very big camera.

Mmhm.

It’s a special kind of camera.

And friends, that’s the answer to our FIND IT question.

Here’s the question again.

What kind of camera does Winnie have?

What kind of camera does Winnie have?

Winnie has a professional digital camera.

It’s a really nice camera.

And she has two lenses.

Friends, let’s review our key words together.

camera.

camera.

Can you take a picture of us with my camera?

And...

lens.

lens.

Ken has three lenses for his camera.

That’s a lot of money.

But Ken must be a professional.

Friends, let’s go on now to section two of On the Go.

I like to take photos with my camera because it’s quick and easy.

All I have to do is point and shoot.

Smile.

Good!

Photography is a great activity both inside and outside.

Whether you are a beginner or a professional, you can take photos of anything.

Just be sure you have enough light.

(Music).

(Background Noise).

This is a photo studio.

Photographers take photos in here using many lights, backgrounds and different kinds of cameras.

OK, Daniel.

So, what is different about these two cameras?

Hmm. They look the same, except one camera has a little screen on the back.

That must be the digital camera.

That’s right.

The camera on the right is a digital camera.

The camera on the left is a film camera.

The photos from a film camera are saved on film.

The film must be developed to see the photos.

Wow. Cameras have really changed a lot in the last twenty years.

But I think that good photographers can take great photos with any camera.

Really?

Mmhm.

Show me.

OK.

Well, in this part of On the Go, Daniel and Winnie go to a special place where people take photos.

Do you know what the name of that place is?

Andrea?

Yes, I know.

They go to a photo studio.

Yes, that’s right.

A photo studio.

Friends, say these key words with us, or this key word.

photo studio.

photo studio.

photo studio.

This is a room.

It’s very special.

It’s a place where you can go and get professional pictures.

A photo studio.

When you go to a photo studio, a professional photographer takes your pictures.

Now those are some big words.

What is a professional photographer, Tom?

Well, it’s a photographer - someone who takes pictures - for money.

They do it.

It’s their job.

That’s true.

Now what are some things that you can find or that you can see at a photo studio?

Well, we find out that you can see many lights.

There are also backgrounds and of course many different big cameras.

That’s right.

And we also see a key word right here in the photo studio.

They use many lights.

Let’s talk about this key word.

light.

light.

light.

Well, we all need light.

We need light to see.

If we don’t have light, it will be very dark and black.

And here we’re talking about machines that give you light.

Maybe you have lights in your room.

Or maybe you have a light on your desk to help you read.

These big lights in a photo studio give light to make the best photo, to take the best picture.

And sometimes the lights are really bright.

You don’t want to look right into the light because that’s not good for your eyes.

But you can use this word in different ways.

If you need some light, then you can turn on the light.

And when you’re finished, remember to save electricity - turn off the light.

Well, let’s review our key words from this section now.

photo studio.

photo studio.

Sam and Anne took wedding photos at a photo studio.

And...

light.

light.

It’s dark in here.

Where is the light?

Well, we have more to learn on our On the Go today.

Let’s take a look at section three.

Hey, Winnie!

Take a look at this photo.

Very nice.

It’s a photo of... you.

Did you take that with that little camera of yours?

Yes, it’s a self-portrait.

See?

See, you don’t need a professional camera to take good photos.

I just follow a few simple rules of photography.

Rules?

Yes. Let me share three fun and simple rules.

Rule 1: Take your camera everywhere.

Then when you see something you want to take a picture of, you will be ready.

That’s easy.

So what’s the next rule?

Ha.

Don’t be afraid to take pictures.

It doesn’t matter if you have a small camera like mine or a big camera like Winnie’s.

Just have fun and do your best.

That’s great.

So what’s rule 3?

Move around.

When you are taking pictures, move around.

When you move around, you can get a different angle for your pictures.

Always take a camera with you.

Don’t be afraid to take pictures.

And move around.

These are useful rules for any photographer.

(Background Noise).

Can you take a picture for us?

Thank you.

That’s good.

Well, friends, we hope you learned something new about photography today.

Now you go out and take some great photos.

See you next time On the Go!

Ready? One, two, three.

Now it doesn’t matter if you have a big camera or a small camera.

You don’t need to be a professional.

Anyone can take good pictures.

And Daniel gives us some simple rules.

Tom, what is the first rule?

Ah, the first rule: Always have a camera with you.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a nice camera or even your cell phone camera.

You can always have a camera with you.

So rule 1 is take your camera everywhere.

Rule 2: Don’t be afraid to take pictures.

And rule 3: Move around.

Well, friends, we’ve talked about these three rules.

But let’s talk about this word.

It’s a key word.

rule.

rule.

rule.

Now a rule is something that you should do or something that you should not do.

Now not everybody likes rules.

But rules are important and rules are there to help you.

Yeah. Now where might you hear or see some rules?

You know.

In your classroom.

The teacher often has a list of rules.

What should you do with these rules?

Well, of course you should obey the rules.

Don’t talk during class.

There are many rules in a classroom, and you should obey the rules.

When you obey the rules, you do what the rules say.

So yes, you have classroom rules.

You might have rules at work.

If you go to a place like for example, uh, an ice skating place, there are also rules to keep everyone safe.

But here we are talking about some rules or even some tips to help you take good pictures.

Now, Tom, do you think that these are simple rules?

Can you follow these rules?

You can follow these rules.

You can take your camera everywhere.

You can move around.

And if you remember, what was the second rule, Andrea?

The second rule is don’t be afraid.

Use your camera, have fun and do your best.

Well, friends, let’s review this key word together now.

It is...

rule.

rule.

Follow these rules and you could succeed.

Well, friends, please review this On the Go again.

You can see it on our show again tomorrow.

And you can read the article in your Let’s Talk in English magazine.

OK. Well, right now it’s time for us to take a break.

We’ll see yousoon.

(Music).

Welcome back.

I hope you had a great break.

Well, we learned a lot today On the Go.

And we still have more to learn.

So let’s go to the Information Desk.

Hello.

(Chinese).

Bye!

Calendar Phrase.

Say cheese!

Say cheese!

(Chinese).

I want to take your picture.

Say cheese.

Cheese.

You didn’t smile.

Let’s try again.

Say cheese.

Cheese.

You still didn’t smile.

Let me take another photo.

Say cheese.

Cheese.

Hey! You still didn’t smile.

Why don’t you smile when you say cheese?

I don’t like cheese.

OK. Say ice cream!

Ice cream.

Oh! That’s a nice smile!

Say cheese!

Say cheese!

(Chinese).

Well, friends, today we were On the Go, and we have an On the Go Question of the Day for you.

Here it is.

What do you like to take photos of?

I’ll repeat that again.

What do you like to take photos of?

So, Tom, what do you like to take photos of?

Hmm, good Question of the Day.

Let’s see.

I do like to take photos with my family and friends.

It’s nice to have photos of other people.

But you know, I really like cars.

And I love taking photos of cars.

Not just any car, but I love taking photos of cool cars.

And sometimes I like taking photos of really old cars too.

Those make great photos.

Oh, that’s a great answer, Tom.

Well, I have a cool car, so you can take a picture of my car.

Mmhm.

Well, friends, we’ll see all of you again tomorrow right here at...

The Mall.

Goodbye.

Bye-bye.
