Salvador Dali:

I imagine that this oddity are is truly intriguing to me and I discovered it the most fascinating work of art that Salvador Dali has made. At the point when I saw the greater part of Salvador Dali’s work the majority of his fine art was truly fascinating in light of the fact that he would put so various articles or subjects into one picture and his work would look exceptional on the grounds that I didn’t realize that there are numerous approaches to make extraordinary and interesting fine arts. As I saw this picture I thought it was fascinating on the grounds that the woman is remaining in the water and her body is half human and half of a sunflower and it looked truly interesting to me. What I think the specialists message is that she is an upbeat individual and it could mean she is truly friendly and she jumps at the chance to make an amazing most. However, I figure it could likewise imply that individuals see that she is blissful and cheerful yet perhaps she isn’t on the grounds that in the picture she appears as though she’s difficult quiet herself down. He inspires me to try my best to be more creative and try different things with different objects.

Framing a Subject

  1. Do I have a strong composition?  Yes
  2. How well did I edit my photographs? I’m not the best at editing.
  3. What would I do differently if I shot this assignment again? I would learn how to edit better.
  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? I wouldn’t consider it honestly.

File Formats

JPEG: This is the file format most digital cameras use to quickly store photos that are compressed into a smaller size so the camera can fit more photos inside of the storage.

TIFF: This file format does not compress the photo at all and doesn’t sacrifice any pixels or any image quality because this file format keeps the image as large as it needs to be. This format gives the most quality and is the most commonly used in the industry.

Raw: It is the best option if you want to get the absolute best file from your camera – this is the option preferred by professional photographers.

DNG (Digital Negative):This file format, created by Adobe, is an attempt to create a standard raw file format across all manufacturers and cameras. This is offered as a main raw file format, or as an alternative to the manufacturer’s native raw format.

PNG: The strength of PNGs are that they are compressed in a lossless format, and so retain all the digital

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 can’t support partial transparency) and also allow for animation.

BMP: 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 colour data is saved in each individual pixel in the image without any compression.

PSD: This makes it absolutely essential for any sort of extensive manipulation of the original photograph – such as retouching. This gives far greater flexibility and the ability to fine tune an image as layers can be added, removed or edited at any time without any effect on the original photo (as long as all editing has been done on layers) or other layers.

Camera Modes

Automatic mode: This mode will tell your camera to use its best judgement to select shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, focus and flash to take the best shot that it can. There is some camera auto modes that let you override flash or change it to red eye reduction.

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).

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.

Landscape Mode: This sets the camera up with a small aperture to make sure as much of scene you’re photographing will be in focus as possible. It’s ideal for capturing shots wide scene, for those with points of interest at different distances from the camera.

Sports Mode:  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: 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).

Movie Mode: Extends your digital camera from just capturing still images to capturing moving ones. These moving images take up more space on your memory storage than the still images.

Aperture Priority Mode (A or AV): This is semi- automatic where you choose the aperture, then your camera chooses the other settings to ensure you have a well-balanced exposure. Small numbers mean the opposite aperture is large, and the depth of field will be small, and which means your camera will probably choose a faster shutter speed.

Shutter Priority Mode (S or TV):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.

Program Mode (P): Program mode is similar to Auto but gives you a little more control over some other features including flash, white balance, ISO etc. Check your digital camera’s manual for how the Program mode differs from Automatic in your particular model.

Full Manual Mode: This mode is full control over your camera and just have to think about all the settings. You should have an idea of what you’re doing in manual mode so most digital camera owners tend to stick to one priority modes.

Depth of Field Explained

Depth of fields is the amount you need of the image you decide to have in center. You can center the watchers consideration in a particular spot/place. Profound profundity of field and shallow profundity of field are extraordinary. For you to control the profundity of field so as to have a delicate foundation is a few inches down. Essentially, the profundity of field is constantly estimated around the purpose of core interest. Obviously, profundity of field is constrained by changing the opening setting on your camera. In the event that the gap is bigger the shallower your profundity of field will come out to be which implies a littler bit of your picture will be engaged.

While doing depth of field you should see how your opening, central length and centering will cooperate to influence the profundity of field and control what might show up sharp in the photographs you take. Camera can just center its focal point at a solitary point and there is a territory that extends before and behind this center point that actually shows up sharp. The profundity of field review button permits you to see the scene at the working gap, so you can perceive what territories will show up sharp. The more extensive gap and closer centering separation will prompt a shallower profundity of field. In determination to get a profundity of field in your picture you should realize how to control the opening, and how far you will be or close you will be taking it.

13 Things Every Beginner Needs to Know

  1. Setting the Exposure using the histogram-histogram is going to show how much light is in the image.
  2. RAW-shooting in RAW format will give you access to the full capabilities of your camera.
  3. Selecting focusing points manually- It will improve focusing accuracy and reduce chances of missing important shots.
  4. Learn all AF modes-All of these modes have different uses, depending on subject and situation.
  5. Aperture Priority-  It is a great setting for shooting portraits with a blurred background.
  6. Shutter Priority- It Is very useful for low light situations where you don’t want the shutter speed to be slower than what you can use to shoot hand held.
  7. Control Motion Blur- Motion blur often comes from using a shutter speed that is too slow for holding the camera in your hands.
  8. Manuel White Balance-  Recommend learning to set white balance manually, according to each lighting situation.
  9. Drives mode- CL is great for portraits when you have an expressive model and don’t want to miss any interesting faces.CH is the shooting mode for sports, wildlife and anything that moves fast.
  10. Metering Modes- The best way to master metering modes is to start by reading the camera manual. After that, photograph the same scene using all three modes and compare the results.
  11.  ISO- . Lower values are great when there is plenty of light to work with. Higher ISO values are needed for working in low light.
  12. Auto ISO- Auto ISO will help you when shooting hand held. It will increase or decrease the value in order to allow you to shoot with a shutter speed fast enough for hand held operation.
  13. Exposure Compensation- It is a +/- scale that will tell your camera to increase or decrease exposure, depending on your needs. It works for all semi-automatic modes (P, Av, TV) and will influence exposure in increments.

This photo stood out to me because Its very interesting. The colors stand out because its dark and you can see the light clearly. There is a pattern going on as well and I thought that was pretty interesting.  I thought this picture was an eye catcher out of all the pictures I seen on the internet. There isn’t a lot of colors but its still a very nice picture.
