JPG vs. RAW

0

The JPG or Joint Photographic Experts Group file is a digital image file. It is a common file type that can be found all over the internet. It is also an accessible file type that can be opened on nearly any electronic device. JPGs are the go-to image for online posting or print media. This is due to them having a relatively small file size while still maintaining a quality image.

Raw files contain the most complete, uncompressed image data, but in a form that is not directly usable and must be processed. When a digital camera captures an image, the sensor records a mosaic of digital data including the values of each individual sensor pixel. However, this data needs to be processed before it can be finalized as an actual picture.

Portrait Tips

0

  1. Watch and learn how light behaves and moves
  2. A curtain can be a great way to diffuse natural light.
  3. When using a reflector, avoid lighting the model from below.
  4. Keep an eye on how the atmosphere of a shot changes with the light.
  5. Arrive at the location in advance, and take your photos at sunset, sunrise, and blue hour.
  6. Usually, I just try to keep it as simple as possible and work with the light that is already available.
  7. Shooting RAW is a must so I can fix anything later in post-production if need be.
  8. Light is the most intense in the middle of the day, which makes contrast and shadows more pronounced.
  9. Cozy handmade lamps will create a magnificent effect when combined with natural light.
  10. Although strobes have obvious benefits in certain situations, there is nothing more beautiful than natural light to photograph food. 

White balance Read and Write

0

What I’ve learned the reason they adjust white balance is to get the colors in your images as accurate as possible.  The reason for this is that images different sources of light have a different color to them. Fluorescent lighting adds a bluish cast to photos where as tungsten add a yellow tinge to photos. For a cooler blue or green light you have to make the camera to warm things up and in warm light you’ll tell it to cool down. I also learned different digital cameras have different ways of adjusting white balance.  Having many digital cameras have automatic and semi-automatic modes to help you make the adjustments. Some digital cameras allow for manual white balance adjustments also. The things you do are tell your camera what white looks like in a shot so that it has something as a reference point for deciding how other colors should look.

Collage

I put pictures of mortal combat in my collage because that is one of my favorite games. The characters I chose are the characters I most often play. I added some of my favorite horror movies like the Jason mask and ghostface. When I was in elementary I used to play a game called five nights at Freddy’s which is why I have pictures of a boy holding a balloon, a bunny, and a chick. On the right side I put my favorite albums from people I currently listen to.

When its Halloween or Christmas I would watch the night before Christmas so I put jack skellington in my collage. My back ground is 80s themed because I really like 80s aesthetics, I also put the picture of numbers saying 1980’s because I really like the 80’s. American horror stories is one of my favorite shows. Asylum is my favorite season out of them all so I wanted to incorporate that in my collage. Stranger things is also my favorite show so I put it in my collage.

Beetlejuice is a movie that came out a long time ago and its a Halloween movie. Since we’re in October I added it to my collage. At the bottom left corner I put bts because they’re my favorite artists right now. I listen to their music together and their solo music. Lastly I put the BLM sign because black lives matter and its important to remember that.

What camera metering mode did I use and why?

I used manual because it was easier to work with.

Do I have a strong composition?

I don’t know if my composition is strong but I did use composition in my second photo because I have leading lines

How well did I edit my photographs?

I think edited them ok because you’re able to make out the picture but it isn’t anything cool or unique.

What would I do differently if I shot this assignment again?

I would go to different locations.

Do you think your photographs belong on the blog home page and   should be considered one of the best from all the photo classes?

I don’t think it belongs on the blog page or to be considered one of the best.

CAPTURING ACTION AND MOTION IN PHOTOGRAPHY

0

I learned that in action photography If you want to take a sports photo, you need to bring the viewer in as close as possible. This means using a zoom lens like the 70-200mm. If you don’t have a long zoom lens, simply get as close as possible to the field. Many first-time sports photographers are nervous to zoom right into the middle of the action. You’re likely to snap plenty of frames where an unexpected zig or zag took the player partially out of the image. This is part of sports photography. Even the professionals aren’t able to nail the perfect shot every time. Having the perfect settings, composition and timing won’t count for anything if you miss your focus. With the possibility for spectators, colorful advertisements, and other players in the background of your images, your camera’s focus might wander and lock onto the wrong target.

What I learned in motion photography is the reason for motion blur is simply that your camera’s shutter remains open for a significant period of time. You get motion blur when your shutter speed is long, whereas you freeze the action when your shutter speed is short. If your shutter speed is too fast, you’re not going to capture much movement. But if you dial in a lengthy shutter speed you won’t need your subject to move much at all before you start to see blur. With Shutter Priority, you set the shutter speed, but your camera will set the aperture to ensure the shot is well exposed. It’s a very handy mode for motion blur photography because it ensures you get the movement effect you’re after while also capturing generally well-exposed images.
