Study the two photographs. In 1.5 minutes be ready to compare and contrast the photographs:
• give a brief description of the photos (action, location)
• say what the pictures have in common
• say in what way the pictures are different
• say which photographer presented in the photos you prefer
• explain why
You will speak for not more than 2 minutes (12–15 sentences). You have to talk continuously.
In the photo number one we can see a young woman. She is holding her photo camera and taking a picture of a city view. In the background of this photo there is a famous Big ben tower, so the girl is definitely visiting London as a tourist. In the picture number two we see a man, who is taking a picture as well. His body is covered by different types of professional photo cameras, big ones. But he is taking a picture with a small camera. This picture looks like it is a commercial photo of some new model of photo camera, which includes all the advantages of the professional cameras.
Both of the pictures are related with photographing and cameras. In both of them there are some people. The difference which strikes into my eyes is that in the second photo man might be working as a professional photographer, while a girl on the left is just a tourist. She is just taking a photo of a showplace.
As for me, I’d prefer being a tourist — photographer. I think that in the contemporary world of high technologies it’s not that hard taking very good photos without knowing the rules of photographing and all the settings of the cameras. I believe that a shot of a good quality and attractive picture in it could be taken by anyone no matter if he is a professional or not.
