Behind the Lens

Five photographers have entered a photography competition. Can you work out the subject of each photograph taken by each of the five, together with the make of the camera and the filter they used to take their shot?

1- The women don’t use F-stop cameras. The Focuswell fan used a polariser filter.

2- Colin takes still life shots, never with a Polariser or an F-stop camera.

3- Jodie took a picture of some birds using a sunset filter, while Marcus used a rainbow filter.

4- Jacqui used a soft focus filter. The F-stop user took a landscape photo; Jodie lovers her SlickShoot camera.

5- The Aperture camera was used to take the portrait photo.

logic grid

It maybe be helpful to print out the grid and table above.

Use the 1st grid to help solve the puzzle. As you read through the clues, place a ‘Y’ (yes) or ‘N’ (no) in each box, depending on whether the intersecting elements are true or not.

You can use the bottom table to place your answers.

These types of logic puzzles are another great way to improve your thinking skills; If you’ve never solved one before, and would like some additional help, here are some detailed instructions you can read through.

Will unmask any submitted answers in a couple days, thanks.

    name- subject- make of camera- filter


    colin- still life- point click- warmup
    dev- dogs- focuswell- polarizer
    jacqui- portrait- aperture- softfocus
    jodie- birds- slickshoot- sunset
    marcus- landscape- f.stop- rainbow


    took some time, and a bit of logic, theres a harder one out there that deals with house colors, cigar brands, house order and pets, it’s fun.

    Colin shot the Still life using a PointClick camera and a Warm-up filter.
    Dev shot the dogs using a Focuswell camera and a Polariser filter (an interesting choice for that subject).
    Jacqui shot the Portrait with an Aperture camera through a Soft focus filter (all the rage for Portraits these days).
    Jodie shot the birds with her SlickShoot camera using a Sunset filter.
    Marcus shot the Landscape using an F-Stop camera and a Rainbow filter (another interesting choice).

    All told, I hope they got some nice pictures!

    Some things the question has left out.

    Some things the question has left out.
    1. No repeat of the subject, camera, lens for each person.
    2. Which names are male or female? Isn’t immediately straightforward, especially Dev.
    3. It can’t be done without the table because warmup, dogs and pointclick were never mentioned in the hints.


    ANS:
    jodie – birds – slickshot – sunset
    marcus – landscape – fstop – rainbow
    colin – still life- pointclick – warm up
    jacqui – portrait – apenture – soft focus
    dev – dogs – focuswell – polariser

    Colin: warmup, pointclick, still life
    Dev: polariser, Focuswell, dogs
    Marcus: rainbow, F-stop, landscape
    Jacqui: soft focus, Aperture, portrait
    Jodie: sunset slickshot, birds


    Finding out what Jodie used and took is a no-brainer, statement 4 and 5 said it all. And so by elimination, this answer is the one I come up with, kind of simple actually, I didn’t bother to use the table.XD

    Glad you guys liked this type of puzzle; have a similar, harder one which we’ll put up in 2-3 weeks.


    Valid points, aaronlau. Will keep in mind for future logic puzzles : )

    LMAO it is supposed to leave some things out in the hints and YOU are supposed to use process of elimination to figure out the rest…that is why it is a puzzle that requires use of your brain…as for those of you who said that you cannot do it without a table…um ya u can, some people have a great retention…oh, wait, is retention too big of a word for some of you?
