Pop Art

Pop art is a form h photography that brings out trends and bright colors. This would be considered pop art because it has bright colors that contrast each other and have to do with something trendy (our school mascot).


I think my photo came out really good, and kind of looks like a fantasy land. Like something you would almost see in a dream. The clouds on the lower half, have like lavender tint to it, which I feel like gives it a little depth. The lavender also gives it the dreamy feel. I also really like how the clouds fade on the top. Also I feel lie the green in the grass really contrast with the dirt. I also feel like how low the clouds sit give it a dreamy feel, because they aren’t like that in person.

Raw Vs. Jpeg

So when filming in Raw one of the downsides is that it takes up more file space. However, to contradict that, when in raw the image quality is significantly better. With that, raw brings out more of the natural shadows and highlights. Also with filming in raw, you are getting the unedited version of things that are all natural.

Filming in jpeg comes with its advantages, one of the advantages is that the file doesn’t take up as must storage as raw. With its upside, it does have negatives. When filming in jpeg, they somewhat edit the photo. They process through a white balance. Overall, most photographers chose to film in raw to have the best image quality.

White Balance

White balance has to occur when something looks discolored. It helps make things look more natural . When you picture looks too green you add magenta. When its too red you add cyan. And when its too blue you add yellow. A lot of times when someone is too blue, you can hold your hand up too the picture and tell. When someone is green however, they just happen to look sick.
