Assignment 2

Photographing my room or a detail
I wasn't entirely sure if this is what we had to do for this photograph but a few classmates explained and I think this is what he had to do... For this photograph, since I can't find my tripod lately, I had to use a steady object to place my camera on, results came out better than expected. I tried several attempts of avoiding light trails (like we see in the back of this image) but failed pretty bad on my other attempts, this was my best one.
Drawing with light
For this photograph, drawing with light wasn't my first time so I had lots of fun doing this part of the assignment. Sadly, I did something very similar to this for the first assignment and didn't want to re-use the same material as I did on that assignment so I just used a simple light for this one. I like how the infinite sign I tried making didn't come out perfect and that we see from where the light begins. Not many people may like it but in this case, I think it makes the photograph much more interesting.

Lab 7 : Save the pixels

Shooting at ISO 400
Which gives the best exposure? Why? 
The properly exposed one, according to my light meter, gives the best exposure. (The first one) Because it isn't too bright nor is it too dark. We see everything properly, detail for detail & the eyes are well lit and exposed as well.

Shooting at ISO 1600
In which is the noise worse?
I think the second image has the worse noise.

What is the difference between the JPG and the RAW image screen caps?
As we've learned in class, JPEG shots are like "caked up" versions of an image. As we see here as well on the 100% screenshots, JPEG seems more saturated and less sharp than RAW. The colours of JPEG also sort of seem warmer than on RAW, they're less "accurate" on JPEG.

Lab 6 : Histogram

Low key scene 

Variety of tones scene

High key scene

1. According to my histogram, where do most of the pixels in my high-key image fall?
    On my high key image, most pixels fall on the right side on the histogram.

2. Are there any pixels in my high-key image that would not print with detail?
    No because everything that has major details in it is well focused and even with the white on white
    situation we have here the whites don't go to a major clipping point where it becomes problematic.

3. According to my histogram, where do most of the pixels in my low-key image fall?
    On my low-key scene, a have a good amount of pixels on the far left and right, but none in the
    middle of it.

4. Are there any pixels in my low-key image that would not print with detail?
   According to Lightroom's histogram, with the help of the black and white clippings, there aren't any
   pixels that would lose detail if I printed this image out.

5. According to the histogram, where do most of the pixels in my varied tones image fall?
    For my varied tones image my pixels are almost all over the histogram but I'd say they're mostly on
    the right since my image has more bright tones than dark (the red-ish).

6. Are there any pixels in the varied tones image that would not print with detail?
  Always according to the Lightroom's histogram with the help of the white and black clipping setting   on, it doesn't show any clipping on my image. So basically the details should be printed out since it     doesn't show any clipping on my image.

7. Considering the information on the histogram, do you feel your camera is properly exposing the
    high key and low key scenes?
    I personally feel like my camera is well exposing my high key and low key scenes. Where the
    whites or blacks dominate on my image, the histogram goes with it as well. It exposes properly,
    although I do think that sometimes it could do better my camera still does a decent good job in

8. Which histogram shows the most dynamic range?
    Out of my three images, definitely the varied tones one. There is more than just black or white on
    my image so the histogram should show a bigger variety on its histogram. The more variety there
    is to the image the more dynamic the histogram should look.
