This picture shows me posing for a photo for the ADMT Homework and if the picture is split into 9 equal parts my focus which is the hard will be somewhere in the middle

This picture shows me and my friend Zhi Chao because the focus is on me thats why more of my face is in the centre.

This picture shows my friend, Guang Jun using his macbook pro to surf the net. If the picture is separated into 9 equal parts he would be in the right part of the center area.

Miscellaneous: When is the best time for photography?
Although I cannot give a specific timing my answer is the best time for photography is when the camera is facing away from the sun meaning that the sun is behind the camera

4. Tripod
3.a space through which light passes in an optical or photographic instrument, esp. the variable opening by which light enters a camera.
From the apple widgets dictionary
A device on a lens that can be adjusted to produce a clear image.
From the apple widgets dictionary
5.Shutter Speed
The aperture diaphragm of a lens (bigger or smaller values) AND timing (open and close) of the camera's shutter curtain - BOTH perform the tasks of regulating the amount of light entering the camera and expose onto the film. The shutter speed scales engraved on the shutter speed dial of conventional camera bodies with a shutter speed ring OR via some flickering digital numerals on the LCD screen like: 1/8000, 1/4000, 1/1000, 1/500, 1/250, 1/125, 1/60, 1/30, 1/15, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1 or -1, -2 etc.
6.ISO speed
ISO in ISO speeds stands for International standards organization and a few decades ago they came up with a standard for measuring the speed of film called the ISO Speed
The speed of a film is the measure of how fast it responds to light. A low ISO speed means a film responds slowly to light, a fast ISO speed means the film responds quickly. Those silver squares you see on the film casing tell the camera what the film's ISO speed is (for cameras that can read them).

a device that measures and records the quantity, degree, or rate of something,

Rule of Thirds

The Rule of Thirds is based on the fact that the human eye is naturally drawn to a point about two-thirds up a page. Crop your photo so that the main subjects are located around one of the intersection points rather than in the center of the image.

Golden Section rule

It has been found that certain points in a picture's composition automatically attract the viewer's attention. Similarly, many natural or man-made objects and scenes with certain proportions (whether by chance or by design) automatically please us. Leonardo da Vinci investigated the principle that underlies our notions of beauty and harmony and called it the Golden Section. Long before Leonardo, however, Babylonian, Egyptian, and ancient Greek masters also applied the Golden Section proportion in architecture and art.

To get a clearer sense of these special "Golden" composition points, imagine a picture divided into nine unequal parts with four lines. Each line is drawn so that the width of the resulting small part of the image relates to that of the big part exactly as the width of the whole image relates to the width of the big part. Points where the lines intersect are the "golden" points of the picture

Diagonal rule

One side of the picture is divided into two, and then each half is divided into three parts. The adjacent side is divided so that the lines connecting the resulting points form a diagonal frame. According to the Diagonal Rule, important elements of the picture should be placed along these diagonals
