History timeline

There are so much photography inventions that impressed me. The Camera obscura was one that sticked out to me. Camera Obscura was the predecessor of the photographic camera. With out the light sensitive film or plate all pictures will come out dark.  Another Invention is Calotype. Calotype was in early photographic technique invented by William Henry. It made the images look like it had good pretty quality. Daguerreotype was an invention made in 1839 by Louis Daguerre. The invention was the very first commercially viable photographic technique. It made people look at pictures they took differently.


Raw vs JPEG

1.A main difference between 2 file sizes is the quality of the image.

2.Raw files are bigger than Jpeg files.

3.Yes, a raw file can be changed to Jpeg.

4. If I wasn’t shooting for something so important, I would shoot in Jpeg just because the quality isn’t the best.

pop art

  1. pop art is characterized by a deconstruction seen in popular culture such a comic books, movies, magazines etc.
  2. Peter Blake is considered a pop artist because he produced work inspired by popular culture and folk art then soon was labeled a pop artist.
  3. Petter Blake is most famous for co- creating the sleeve design for the Beatles. He is also known for his collages.
  4. I chose Petter Blake because his work references big brands and celebrities of his time.

Camera Modes

Digital Camera Modes

shooting modes that they most commonly use on their digital cameras. they use a range of point and shoot and DSLR digicams.

Automatic Mode

Automatic Mode is the overwhelming response from both beginner and the more advanced users alike a little surprising to me.  Auto mode tells your camera to use its best judgement to select shutter speed, aperture, ISO etc.

Portrait Mode

When you switch to portrait mode your camera will automatically select a large aperture. Which helps to keep your background out of focus.

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.

Landscape Mode

This mode is almost the exact opposite of portrait mode in that it sets the camera up with a small aperture. It’s therefore ideal for capturing shots of wide scenes, particularly those with points of interest at different distances from the camera.

Sports Modet

 It is ideal for photographing any moving objects including people playing sports, pets, cars. Sports mode attempts to freeze the action by increasing the shutter speed.

Night Mode

his is a really fun mode to play around with and can create some wonderful colors. Night mode a technique also called ‘slow shutter sync is for shooting in low light situations.

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.

Aperture Priority Mode (A or AV)

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.

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.

Program Mode (P)

Digital cameras have this priority mode in addition to auto mode in a few cameras Program mode. In those cameras that have both, Program mode is similar to Auto but gives you a little more control.

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. It gives you the flexibility to set your shots up as you wish.

100 most influential photos



A Man on the Moon, Neil Armstrong, Nasa, 1969

The guy in the photo is named Aldrin, he was the second man to walk on the moon. This image endured the way it has was not likely. It has none of the action of the shots of aldrin when he was climbing out of things. I chose this picture because it stood out to me it doesn’t look to edited and the texture on the floor is amazing. You can see everything clearly and I like that.


Leap Into, Peter Leibing, 1961 Freedom

I chose this picture because I like how you can see the action that is happening. The man in the picture is Schumann, he did not want to live enclosed and ran for the barricade. So, he decided to run and that is when that picture was taken. It made Schumann,the first known East German soldier to flee.


Camelot, Hy Peskin, 1953

I chose this picture because the couple looks so happy. They became American royalty Hy Peskin photographed the politician on the make and his radiant fiancée over a summer weekend in 1953. They ended up getting married and being happy together.
