About Me Collage

I made this collage a while ago but decided to use it because I worked hard on this a while back and I like the way it came out. It has some older rappers and newer rappers that you can hear on the radio today.

in the background you can see space, I put that because I love space and it also looks good in the background. I also have a clip of a movie in there that my dad loves and it’s pretty funny/hood lmao.

Sadly I had to cut some of the photo out because it had to be 8×10 for this assignment but still you can see most of it what I made, anyways I hope you enjoyed looking at my collage I made, I feel it symbolizes me because how much I love the music industry and listen to it 24/7.

Surrealism


Salvador Madrid

From an early age, Salvador Dalí was encouraged to practice his art, and he would eventually go on to study at an academy in Madrid. In the 1920s, Salvador Madrid went to Paris and began interacting with artists such as Pablo Picasso, René Magritte and Miró, which led to Dalí’s first Surrealist phase. He is perhaps best known for his 1931 painting The Persistence of Memory, showing melting clocks in a landscape setting. The rise of fascist leader Francisco Franco in Spain led to the artist’s expulsion from the Surrealist movement, but that did not stop him from painting.

 

File Formats

1.)JPEG files are compressed quickly in the camera, and thus result in a loss of detail and quality.

2.) Some cameras offer TIFF as the highest image quality level in camera.

3.) RAW files are generally available on advanced compact cameras and DSLRs and quite simply put.

4.) Your raw files as DNG files for maximum future security.

5.) PNG files are ideal for use on the internet.

6.) GIF files are ideal for use on the internet.

7.) BMP was invented by Microsoft, initially for use on the Windows platform but is now recognized by programs on Macs as well.

8.) 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

  1. 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.
  2. With some cameras auto mode lets you override flash or change it to red eye reduction.
  3. Portrait mode works best when you’re photographing a single subject so get in close enough to your subject
  4. either by zooming in or walking closer so that your photographing the head and shoulders of them.
  5. It’s therefore ideal for capturing shots of wide scenes, particularly those with points of interest at different distances from the camera.
  6. At times your camera might also select a slower shutter speed in this mode.
  7. It is ideal for photographing any moving objects including people playing sports, pets, cars, wildlife etc.
  8. Sports mode attempts to freeze the action by increasing the shutter speed.
  9. If you use this mode for a ‘serious’ or well balanced shot you should use a tripod or your background will be blurred.
  10. when there is a situation with lights behind your subject as it can give a fun and experimental look
  11. Most new digital cameras these days come with a movie mode that records both video but also sound.
  12. 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.
  13. Aperture priority mode is useful when you’re looking to control the depth of field in a shot.
  14. Small numbers means the opposite ie your aperture is large, depth of field will be small and your camera will probably choose a faster shutter speed.
  15. 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.
  16. On the flip-side of this you might want to capture the movement as a blur of a subject like a waterfall and choose a slow shutter speed.
  17. Program mode is similar to Auto but gives you a little more control over some other features including flash, white balance, ISO etc.
  18. Check your digital camera’s manual for how the Program mode differs from Automatic in your particular model
  19. gives you the flexibility to set your shots up as you wish.
  20. you have full control over your camera and need to think about all settings including shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, flash etc.

Lenses

  • We’ll start with the wide angles. In my early days as a photographer
  • I NEVER used wide angle lenses. I started my career as a sports photographer and rarely used anything shorter than a 70-200,
  • often going for 400mm f2.8 or 600mm f/4 lenses.
  • As I began shooting landscapes as more of a hobby,
  • I began to discover the magic of wide angles. Wide angles give a wide expansive view, and when used correctly, can wrap you in the scene.
  • My favorite lenses for landscape work tend to be in the ranges from 14mm f/2.8, 16-35 f/2.8, and 24mm f/1.4.
  • Wide angles should be used when prominent foreground objects are present.
  • The primary mistake made by new photographers is to use wide angles incorrectly- by not being close enough,
  • having no interest in the foreground, or by trying to include too much in the scene.

10.)Wide angles are also handy in tight areas, like small rooms, cars, caves, etc. They can give volume to the small area.

  • Wide angles have the potential to drastically change your photography.
  • Standard lenses tend to range from about 35mm up to around 85mm. Lenses in the standard zoom range will cover moderate wide angles- typically 24mm to 35mm.
  • to moderate telephoto lengths- around 70mm and up to about 105mm. Standard zoom lenses are great “walk around” lenses.
  • They are versatile, allowing both for wide angle work such as a landscape, or zooming in to the telephoto end of the lens to take a great portrait.
  • Standard zooms are generally included in many SLR kits that come with lenses. 18-55mm, 18-135mm, 24-105mm, 24-70mm, and others are popular standard zooms.
  • However, there are also standard prime lenses. Prime lenses are lenses that are just one focal length. Back in the good ol’ days of film, the most popular standard lens was a 50mm.
  • When I was a student, everyone in the class started with a 50mm lens.
  • Whether you choose a zoom or a prime is up to you. Most people tend to feel that zooms offer more bang for the buck these days,
  • while a prime forces you to think more about composition and point of view, simply because it can’t zoom.
  • The most popular seems to be various flavors of 70-300mm or 70-200mm.

To you this may seem like a normal off-white rascalat bracelet, but to me this bracket has a lot of meaning. My best friend gave it to me because I gave her my old one I would always wear, so she wanted to match and bought me a new one, I like it a lot and it’s pretty valuable to me. I never forget to put it on and it’s like a part of me so if I ever lost it I would be so sad. I love that bracelet and try my best still to try and take care of it, it got really messed up though during a football practice and we were running in the rain so it’s all messed up but it’s okay cause it still means a lot to me.
