Raw Vs. Jpeg

Explain the main difference between a raw and jpeg file.

They have different file sizes which is the main way the two files differ. That and image quality is different among the two. RAW has the highest quality pictures. The speed in which they are processed is also different as jpeg is faster in this area than raw.

Which file is bigger, RAW or Jpeg?

A raw file is often bigger than a Jpeg, ranging from around 6 times the size. Because raw files carry more data than jpeg files do, it’s bigger. Jpeg files compress the data to fit its smaller file size.

Can you change a Raw file to a Jpeg, once your photos are on the computer? How?

You have to open the RAW file, copy it, save, and select “export as” and click on JPEG. Then you’ll find your two separate files: JPEG and RAW.

If you were shooting an important event, would you shoot it RAW or Jpeg? Explain.

I would use RAW as it’s of the best quality and is something to edit later on. Images you want to capture that will have lots of detail and vibrant color will be possible when shooting in RAW.

My Inspiration

What inspired my creativity was thinking about people that win cars on game shows and stuff. I wanted to recreate the joyous person winning the car and the “host” gifting such person. The one leaning against the car is based off the models that are there to look pretty around the prizes while displaying them.

Painting With Light

I think the photographer achieved this picture by being out at night when it’s dark, using long exposure, and a tripod. Keeping a low ISO is also essential in achieving this look. Some kind of lighting source appears to have produced the light, possibly a light wand or glow stick. I find this photo eye-catching because the subject is visible and is moving prettily. The light makes a nice swirl around her, making her stand out, and compliments the background of the photo.

White Balance

White balance adjusts the colors in the light source being used to make white objects appear white. Such light includes natural sunlight, light bulbs, and fluorescent lighting. The most important part of white balance is the color temperature correction. This is where you correct an image’s color tint produced by the light’s color temperature. This lies on the blue-yellow spectrum. To get started on using white balance, you’re able to add cold hues to your images that create a blue, dark effect, or a warm hue that gives your image warmth and an orangey vibe.

I like this picture because it’s very hard to figure out what it is the photographer is taking a picture of. I think the odd patterns in this picture is very cool and interesting to look at. It’s also hard to decipher how close he may be to the subject which I enjoy being kept guessing.

Henri Cartier-Bresson had a talent for being able to capture people’s expressions and actions perfectly in his work. In each photo you are able to depict the subject’s emotions and thoughts while the photo is being taken. The black and white also adds character to the photos and sets a steady and calm mood. I find these photos unique and timed creatively. His reputation of capturing the “perfect moment” in each of his pieces is well deserved.

Capturing Action and Motion in Photography

When taking pictures of action-motion in photography, you must make sure your camera’s settings are of your liking. Whether you want to take a motion-blurred or a sharp picture, your shutter speed will be the most important factor in capturing these effects. For one, in “freezing the action” you must choose a fast shutter speed. How fast you want it depends on what you’re shooting. For example, if trying to capture a picture of kids playing soccer, you’ll want a shutter speed of about 1/250th of a second. But if you’re trying to take a picture of an object flying in the air, you’d need a much faster shutter speed. It’ll work in your favor if you choose to get closer to the subject, whether that’s physically moving closer or just using a longer lens. This allows you to have a unique change in perspective and possibly capture more expression in your subjects’ faces.

To add motion in your picture, it’s best to use a slow shutter speed. If needed, a wider aperture would also do your picture well to create a shallower depth of field and allow the moving subject to stand out. An aperture of f/3.5 or lower is ideal to pull this off. Timing is everything when trying to get the best shot of your subject. You want to get the moment something special happens, whether it’s someone kicking a ball or someone cheering, jumping in the air. Zooming into these people makes the picture much more memorable and moving as you can capture their joy, thrill, or agony of defeat. Having good focus will also determine how well your subject will stand out in this photo and whether or not they’ll remain the main target of the shoot.
