Seeing things differently since 1894

Photography Quiz #1

Photography Quiz #1

By on Mar 26, 2020

Hello, everyone! Just a quick something to quench the boredom. Your challenge if you should choose to accept it is to answer 50 (pretty tough) questions on all things photography. You have only 10 minutes from when you click ‘start’, so no time to Google the answers! If you enjoy it or have any suggestions for improvement, let me know and I can do another for another week!

  3. Good to hear, did you both get more than 50%? John, you should have still got a score even if you ran out of time?

  4. 29/50 in a time of 3min 29sec.

    My secret? A lot of blind guessing.

    Thanks Daniel; some entertaining ones in there!

    • Did you complete all the questions in time or do you think there should be more time per question?

  7. Didn’t quite make it to the end Daniel, but thanks for that.
    I had to speed read the questions and didn’t have time to consider my answers ~ maybe a bit more time or a few fewer questions next time (there will be a next time won’t there? šŸ™‚ )
    I got 31/48 ~ quite chuffed, but I’m sure others managed more than that.

    • Sweet, thanks for the feedback. Perhaps making it 40 questions instead of 50? Good score!

  8. Hi Daniel

    Finally got around to trying the quiz. I managed 38 out of 50. Perhaps 40 questions in 10 minutes might encourage more to try it. Very enjoyable and it certainly stirred up the grey matter.

    • 38 is very impressive! I’ve been working on another one for Thursday. I think you’re right about lowering it to 40 questions. Will still keep a range of questions so there’s something for all areas of photography knowledge: cameras/ phototgraphers/ basic settings/ history/ famous pictures/ members work etc.

  9. 33 for me and I am in shock at such a high score, would have done better but I thought the picture in Ques 49 was mine not Ansel Adams!!!!!

    Most enjoyable Daniel, thank you.

  10. I think 40 is probably right Daniel. Iā€™m very impressed with some of those scores. It looks like I will have to up my game to compete
