White Balance

What is white balance, and how does it work? The color temperature of a picture, which may range from warm (orange hues) to cold (blue hues), is called white balance (blue hues). The term “white balance” refers to the process of changing the colors of a photograph to make it appear more natural and realistic. How does it accomplish this? It adds the polar opposite to make the image appear more neutral. White balance is usually adjustable on most cameras. They generally have the words “sun,” “shade,” “tungsten,” and “fluorescent” on them. Other cameras allow you to manually set the color temperature by selecting a Kelvin value. So, what is the significance of white balance in photography? The rationale for this is to ensure that your photograph has natural-looking colors and skin tones.

Jpeg vs Raw

The main distinction between RAW and JPEG is that RAW is an uncompressed version/format of a picture, whereas JPEG is a compressed image format. RAW files include a lot of detail. JPEG provides a lot of detail, but it’s not as good as RAW.

When compared to a JPEG image, a RAW image has a broader dynamic range and color spectrum. When a picture or sections of an image are underexposed or overexposed, a RAW image has considerably superior highlight and shadow recovery capability than a JPEG image. Possibilities for finer control and modification.



Everything I put on my collage is something I feel passionate about the first thing I thought of putting was the Uncle Sam poster saying I WANT YOU for the Us military. I put this because I feel very strong and supportive of the US military as they help us preserve our freedom here. Like the Uncle Sam poster, right next to it I put a COD WW2 poster. I put this because I feel very passionate about WW2 and is probably my favorite subject to learn in all of school as it is so fascinating and interesting of the events that took place in the 40’s. I also like the franchise COD as I think it is a very fun trilogy of games that allows you to experience a story and a multiplayer that you can play with friends or people online. Another thing I put was a portrait of Ronald Reagan on a T.Rex. This was originally my project for Surrealism, but I loved both so much that I wanted to include it in my college as I feel like Ronald Reagan was one of the greats and was very patriotic of his country and the dinosaur represents the coolness of it. Right behind all of this, I included a man with a rifle which supports the 2nd amendment and has a tattoo of “We the People”. I also feel very passionate of our amendments we have in the U.S as they make us who we are in America.

On the top part of my collage, I have added to of my favorite shows which include Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead. I feel like these shows are some of the best fiction/realism there is in show history as they both do good in telling story, creating character development, and action all in one. Although these are my top 2 favorite shows, I would have to say Breaking bad is my favorite and quite possibly the GREATEST SHOW OF ALL TIME. It does and gives off everything s person needs when watching a show like drama, action etc. on the top left t of my collage, I included two CTU operators that are from real CTU’s but are included in my favorite game, Rainbow Six Siege. They both are versatile and fast and are good at their job and get it done. I also love their backstory and where they come up from.

Read and write: File formats

  1. JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group): A commonly used method of lossy compression for digital images, particularly for those images produced by digital photography.
  2. TIFF (Tagged Image File Format): A computer file format for storing raster graphics images, popular among graphic artists, the publishing industry, and photographers.
  3. RAW: A file that contains data that have not been compressed, encrypted or processed in any manner.
  4. DNG (Digital Negative Format): DNG files are truly digital negatives captured by digital camera sensors.
  5. PNG (Portable Network Graphics): PNG files are commonly used to store web graphics, digital photographs, and images with transparent backgrounds.
  6. GIF (Graphics Interchange Format): GIFs are a common format for web graphics, especially small images and images that contain text, such as navigation buttons.
  7. BMP (Bitmap Image File): Short for Bitmap, a BMP file contains uncompressed image data. It supports both monochrome and color data, making this file format an ideal way to store digital photos.
  8. PSD (Photoshop Document): PSD stands for Photoshop Document, which is an image format that supports layers of graphics in a single file. It is mostly used for working with layers of graphics and saving the projects that can extend up to 2 gigabytes in file size.
