  Taking Pictures of the World

  

  Meet Annie Griffiths Belt,a National Geographic photographer.Belt has worked for National Geographic since 1978,and has taken pictures on almost every continent in the world.In fact,Antarctica is the only continent Belt hasn't seen yet.

  

  Belt's photographs are well known for their beauty and high quality.They also reflect very different cultures and regions of the world.Belt has photographed the ancient city of Petra,Jordan ,as well as the green landscapes of the Lake District in England.Recently,her pictures appeared in a book about undeveloped natural places in North America.

  

  Everywhere that Belt goes,she takes pictures of people.Belt has found ways to connect with people of all ages and nationalities even when she does not speak their language." The greatest privilege of my job is being allowed into people's lives," she has said."The camera is like a passport,and I am often overwhelmed by how quickly people welcome me "

  

  Knowing how to break the ice has helped to make Belt a successful photographer,but experts say that anyone can learn to connect with new people.When people speak the same language,greeting and small talk can make strangers feel more comfortable with each other.When people don't speak the same language ,a smile is very helpful.Having something in common can also help break the ice.For example ,Belt has traveled with her two children ,so when she takes pictures of children or their parents,they all have that family connection in common.Even bad weather can help people to connect when they are experiencing it together.

  

  Belt has some advice if you are thinking about a career in photography.You can volunteer to take pictures for a local organization that can't afford to hire a professional photographer.You can also take a good,honest look at your best photographs.If you're a real photographer,your photos are good because of your personal and technical skills.Belt also recommends studying and learning from photos taken by professional photographers.

  

  Remember,the next time you look as a beautiful photograph,you might be looking at the work of Annie Griffiths Belt.And the next time you meet a new person,don't be afraid to break the ice.the connection you make could be very rewarding.

  答案与题解:

  

  1.B 在第二段第三行,作者提到贝尔特曾经为英格兰湖区的美景拍过照片.那她自然就去过英格兰。因此,这一题题干的表述( 贝尔特从没去过英格兰) 明显是错误的。

  

  2.A 第一段第三行说到南极洲是贝尔特唯一没亲眼见过的大洲,那么她必然没去过南极洲。所以这一题题干的表述(贝尔特从没去过南极洲) 是正确的。

  

  3.C 第一段第一行提到贝尔特从1978 年就开始为《国家地理》杂志工作,但是并无其他信息,所以我们无从得知在1978 年之前.贝尔特是否还为其他杂志工作过。所以我们既没法说贝尔特只为《国家地理》一家杂志工作过,也没法说贝尔特在很多家杂志工作过。因而,我们无法在文中找到这一题题干所表述的信息( 贝尔特在很多家杂志工作过),答案只能是C

  

  4.A 在第二段第二行,作者提到贝尔特曾经在约旦的古城佩特拉进行过拍摄,这迎合题干的表述(佩特拉是一座古老的约旦城市)。所以答案为A

  

  5.B 在第三段第一行第二句话,作者提到:在语言不通的情况下,贝尔特找到了和不同年龄、不同民族的人沟通的方法。而魍千中的表述(贝尔特只能和会说英语的人沟通)和文中的信息完全不符,所以答案为B

  

  6.A 在第四段第七行,作者提到:一起体验坏天气可以帮助人们增进相互间的交流。这和题干的表述(人们在坏天气下可以相互沟通)基本一致.所以答案为A

  

  7.A 第五段第一行提到贝尔特为希望从事摄影行业的人提供了一些建议:当个志愿者为没钱请专业摄影师的地方机构拍摄照片。这和题干的表述(做一名志愿者是开始摄影生涯的一种方式)基本吻合,所以答案为A
