2017职称英语试题《综合类》阅读理解练习(3)

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 peopled lives,” she has said. “The camera is like a passport, and I am often overwhelmed by1 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, greetings 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 at 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.

  镜头中的世界

  让我们来认识摄影师艾妮•格里菲斯•贝尔特。贝尔特从1978年以来就一直在为《国家地理》杂志拍摄照片,她的拍摄足迹几乎遍布世界上的所有大洲。事实上,南极洲是贝尔特唯一没亲眼见过的大洲。

  贝尔特的拍摄作品因美轮美奂和质量上乘而广为人知,它们也反映了世界上不同的文化和地区。贝尔特曾经为约旦古城佩特拉和英格兰湖区的美景拍过照片。最近,在一本介绍北美未开发的自然区域的书中出现了她的摄影作品。

  无论去哪里,贝尔特都在所到之处拍下人物照片。贝尔特已经找到在语言不通的情况下和不同年龄、不同民族的人进行沟通的方法。“我的工作的最大优势就是可以走进人们的生活,”她说,“照相机就像通行证一样,而且我常常由于人们迅速地接纳我而被搞得手足无措!”

  知道如何打开话题帮助贝尔特成为了一名成功的摄影师,但是专家们声称任何人都能学会如何同陌生人打交道。当语言相通时,打招呼和相互寒暄能使陌生人之间感到更舒适。当语言不通时,微笑就会变得很有用。彼此的共同点也有助于打开话题。比如,贝尔特常和她的两个孩子一起旅行,所以当她为孩子们或孩子们的父母拍照时,他们就有了相同之处:家庭联系。甚至一起体验坏天气也可以帮助人们增进相互间的交流。

  如果你正在考虑从事摄影行业,贝尔特对此有一些建议。你可以当个志愿者为没钱请专业摄影师的地方机构拍摄照片。你也可以用诚实的态度仔细端详自己最好的摄影作品。如果你是一位真正的摄影师,你的作品会因为你的个人特色和精湛的技艺而变得出类拔萃。贝尔特也推荐向专业摄影师的作品学习
