♥♥♥Top photographer♥♥♥

The two episode is talking about photographers battling against each other to see who will win. The first video was about photographing miles in action and the winner was Roxy and Andrew was eliminated. The second episode was about shooting fashion. The winner this round was Jamiya and Chris was eliminated.


This photo was make by Jerry Uelsmann. Its a very nice and beautiful photo. This photo cates my attention a lot because there is a quy and a girl and also the sun is inside the girl. Its cool and pretty. I think this photo is talking about love. But also I don’t know what’s it talking about. I’m confused its a pretty photo. What I also think about this photo is that the inviter that invented that photo was in love with women. He loved her a lot but she broke his heart. because the sun is inside of her and her shadow is really dark and his shadow is really light. Also he was Putin inside the tree but she was inside him. That’s what I think about this photo, its a really creative and cool picture.


♥♥♥Framing A Subject♥♥♥

  1. Do I have a strong composition? yes I do have a strong composition.
  2. How well did I edit my photographs? I edit them really good, I put all my effort inside those photos.
  3. What would I do differently if I shot this assignment again? I would not change anything because I like how the way I take photos.
  4. Do you think your photographs belong on the blog home page and should be considered one of the best from all the photo classes? yes, of course.

♥♥♥File Formats♥♥♥

  1. JPEG this is probably the best known of all image file formats, and what the majority of digital cameras provide as a digital output from a camera. The thing that you should remember is the JPEG files are compressed quickly in the camera, and thus result in a loss of detail and quality.
  2. TIFF this is the most commonly used industry standard file format, and is generally what print or publishers ask for. Even if the end file format required id a JPEG, the initial captured file would be TIFF. These file formats are usually uncompressed, and as a result offer the opportunity for extensive post processing.
  3. RAW file are generally available on advanced compact cameras and DSLRs and quite simply put; it is the best option if you want to get the absolute best file from you camera. this is the option preferred by professional photographers. Raw files are compressed using a process that retains all of the information originally captured.
  4. DNG (Digital Negative) just about every camera these days uses a different proprietary format to capture raw files. Even cameras from the came manufacturer will often use different formats, which means image editing software must to be able read files from all of these different cameras and formats.
  5. PNG designed in the 90s as an improvement for GIF file format, PNG files are ideal for use on the internet. The strength of PNGs are that they are compressed in a lossless format, and so retain all the digital detail.
  6. GIF like PNGs. GIF files are ideal for use on the internet. Lossless compression means image quality is not sacrificed, and like PNGs they also offer the ability to maintain transparency but cant support partial transparency and also allow for animation.
  7. BMP another lossless file format, BMP was invented by Microsoft, initially for use on the windows platform but is now recognized by programs on Macs as well. BMPs are large file sizes as color data is saved in each individual pixel in the image without any compression.
  8. PSD this file type is what Adobe Photoshop uses as a default to save data. The big advantage of PSD files are that it allows for manipulation on specific individual layers, rather than on the main image itself.

♥♥♥Camera Modes♥♥♥

Portrait mode Portrait mode works best when you’re photographing a single subject so get in close enough to your subject either by zooming in or walking closer so that your photographing the head and shoulders of them. Also if you’re shooting into the sun you might want to trigger your flash to add a little light onto their face.

Movie mode This mode extends your digital camera from just capturing still images to capturing moving ones. Most new digital cameras these days come with a movie mode that records both video but also sound. The quality is generally not up to video camera standards but it’s a handy mode to have when you come across that perfect subject that just can’t be captured with a still image.

Automatic mode Auto mode tells your camera to use it’s best judgement to select shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, focus and flash to take the best shot that it can. With some cameras auto mode lets you override flash or change it to red eye reduction. This mode will give you nice results in many shooting conditions, however you need to keep in mind that you’re not telling your camera any extra information about the type of shot you’re taking so it will be ‘guessing’ as to what you want.

Macro mode Macro mode lets you move your closer into your subject to take a close up picture. It’s great for shooting flowers, insects or other small objects. Different digital cameras will have macro modes with different capabilities including different focussing distances (usually between 2-10cm for point and shoot cameras). When you use macro mode you’ll notice that focussing is more difficult as at short distances the depth of field is very narrow (just millimeters at times).

Landscape mode This mode is almost the exact opposite of portrait mode in that it sets the camera up with a small aperture (large number) to make sure as much of the scene you’re photographing will be in focus as possible (ie it give you a large depth of field). It’s therefore ideal for capturing shots of wide scenes, particularly those with points of interest at different distances from the camera.

Sport mode Photographing moving objects is what sports mode (also called ‘action mode’ in some cameras) is designed for. It is ideal for photographing any moving objects including people playing sports, pets, cars, wildlife etc. Sports mode attempts to freeze the action by increasing the shutter speed.

Night mode this is a really fun mode to play around with and can create some wonderfully colorful and interesting shots. Night mode (a technique also called ‘slow shutter sync’) is for shooting in low light situations and sets your camera to use a longer shutter speed to help capture details of the background but it also fires off a flash to illuminate the foreground (and subject).

Aperture Priority mode This mode is really a semi-automatic (or semi-manual) mode where you choose the aperture and where your camera chooses the other settings (shutter speed, white balance, ISO etc) so as to ensure you have a well balanced exposure. Aperture priority mode is useful when you’re looking to control the depth of field in a shot (usually a stationary object where you don’t need to control shutter speed). Choosing a larger number aperture means the aperture (or the opening in your camera when shooting) is smaller and lets less light in.

Shutter Priority mode Shutter priority is very similar to aperture priority mode but is the mode where you select a shutter speed and the camera then chooses all of the other settings. You would use this mode where you want to control over shutter speed (obviously).

Program mode Some digital cameras have this priority mode in addition to auto mode (in a few cameras Program mode IS full Auto mode… confusing isn’t it!). In those cameras that have both, Program mode is similar to Auto but gives you a little more control over some other features including flash, white balance, ISO.

Manual mode In this mode you have full control over your camera and need to think about all settings including shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, flash etc. It gives you the flexibility to set your shots up as you wish.



♥♥♥Self Portrait♥♥♥

All this picture talks about me. The headphone is inside the picture because I love listening to music. I can not focus on anything if there is no music. Music is my life. The pink pencil represent the I love the color pink, and also to draw with on the paper. The drawing book is there because I love to draw and paint. And that small pink paper also would tell you that I like the color pink and I think some people might think that I like to read but I don’t. That pink paper is just for putting it inside my drawing book.
