Vocab. For digital lit.

Pixel Small little dots that make up images on a computer display. One pixel is equal to one dot of color.
Exposer Total amount of light allowed to fall on the film or sensor while taking a photograph.
Landscape Photograph that shows land like a scene in nature, cities, the country, etc.
Portrait Photograph of a person or group of people that displays the expression, personality, and mood of the subject. The focus of the photograph is usually the person's face, although the entire body and the background may be included.
