photography summary

From what i watched, the show was built around professional photography. They were given a subject to shoot, and a concept. The winner was chosen by who did the best. My thoughts on photography are it looks like a fun thing to do but has a lot of things that have to be done to meet the right expectations. A person must do and change whatever’s necessary to get the best photo they can shoot.

file formats

JPEG: JPEG files compress fast in the camera which lessen the quality and detail.

TIFF: TIFF files are larger so they will take up more space on your computer and memory card.

RAW: RAW files allow you to adjust white balance, exposure, contrast etc.

DNG: DNG is used to create a standard raw file format.

PNG: PNG files allow partial or total transparency.

GIF: GIF files only contain a maximum of 256 colors.

BMP: BMP files are larger files that are saved by pixel without any compression.

PSD: PSD files allow to be manipulated to retouch the photo.

camera modes

Automatics modes: Automatic modes gives the best fitting SS, AP, and ISO. Also gives the white balance, focus and flash.

Portrait mode: Portrait mode keeps the background out of focus. It works best when photographing a single subject.

Marco mode: Marco mode is good for shooting up close. Its best to shoot at a paralleled angle.

Landscape mode: Landscape mode will be in focus as possible. This mode is best for wide scene shots.

Sports mode: Sports mode is designed for in action shots. Its freezes the action by increasing the SS.

Night mode: Night mode is to shoot in low light situations. Tripods can better the quality.

Movie mode: Movie mode captures both still and in action images. Moving images take up more room.

AP priority mode: AP priority mode allows you to choose AP. The camera chooses the SS, white balance, ISO etc.

Shutter priority mode: Shutter priority mode allows you to choose the SS. In a low light situation a slow SS would work best.

Program Mode; Program mode gives you more control over some features. In some cameras, program mode is Auto mode.

Manual mode: Manual mode gives you full control. Its the most flexible setting.

read and write: what every beginner needs to know

1.wide angles should be used when prominent foreground objects are present

2.wide angles are also good for small areas , like small rooms, cars, caves etc.

3.standard zoom range cover wide angles 24mm to 35mm

4.standard lenses tend to range from 35mm up to around 85mm

5.standard zooms are getting included in many SL’2 kits that come with lenses

6.moderate telephoto lengths around 70mm-105mm

7.telephoto lenses compare distance , make everything appear closer then they are

8.50mm used to be the most popular lens

9.fast lenses are good for getting you closer to the action

10. 1/500 to 1/1000 shutter speed is the minimum

11. a micro-lens to shoot small things

12. tilt-shift/ perspective correction lens to shoot architecture

13.telephoto zoom such as a 70-200 f/2.8 for sports

14.most popular are 70-300 mm or 70-200mm

15. standard lens are good for “walk around” lenses

16.standard lens can be used for wide angle or zooming in

17.primal lens are one focal length

18.wide angles give volume to a small area

19.telephoto lenses are good for sports ,nature , and wildlife

20. telephoto zooms make the photographer “lazy”

conceptual self portrait

The meaning of conceptual is ”relating to or based on mental concepts”. This photo represents me because one of the main things i enjoy doing the most is reading. Ever since i was a baby my mom would constantly read to me and eventually started to teach me how to read on my own before i entered preschool. By the time i was in second grade i was reading at a fourth grade level and was doing very good in school. Reading gives me a lot of ideas and gives me more creativity with everything i do. My favorite kind of books to read are supernatural , horror , and metaphysical books.

alternative camera angles

AP:1.7 ISO:25 S:1/849
AP:1.7 ISO:25 S:1/394

shadows and light

AP:1.7 ISO:25 S:1/962
AP:1.7 ISO:25 S:1/962
I like this picture because of the meaning ive gave it. By spelling ”Think”with books it gives the message of thinking deeper or thinking outside the box.I like this message because a lot of people dont push themselves to think for themselves. They are followers of everyone else. The books cast a shadow with the light facing behind the books instead of the front. The white sheet thats propped up makes the shadow more visible. There are multiple books of different sizes to be able to spell the word better. This picture was taken at a higher right angle so the layout of the books and the word they made stood out. The photographer edited this picture to be black and white making the shadows stand out more. The books also look like they re either black or white giving the picture contrast.
