Lab : 7

Part 1

7483 - 20170322

Right exposure

7484 - 20170322

+1 exposure

7485 - 20170322

-1 exposure

The picture that works the best is the one with +1 of exposure, because the background is really white, compared to the others. It blends better and looks better.

The worse noisy image is the second one. At -1 of my right exposure.

The difference I found is the sharpening and the contrast, the RAW image is more soft and the shadows are less dark than the JPG. I also found there is less subtle details in the highlights of the JPG.

1.According to the histogram, where do most of the pixels in your high key image fall (left or right on the histogram)


2.Are there any pixels in the high key image that would not print with detail?


3.According to the histogram, where do most of the pixels in your low-key image fall (left or right on the histogram)


4.Are there any pixels in the high key image that would not print with detail?


5.According to the histogram, where do most of the pixels in your varied tones image fall (left or right on the histogram)


6.Are there any pixels in the varied tones image that would not print with detail?


7.Considering the information on the histogram, do you feel your camera is properly exposing the high key and low-key scenes? Explain your answer

Yes, because there’s no pixel clipping either in the blacks or whites.

8.Which histogram shows the most dynamic range?

The mixed scene (last one)



Lab : 4

Part 1


Auto WB


Daylight WB


Custom WB

Part 2


Automatic WB

The auto white balance is actually the better for this scene. It’s the most accurate with the colours.


Fluorescent WB

The picture has too much magenta and purple in it.


Shade WB

The picture is too yellow and green. The colours are not accurate.

Part 3

Tungsten WB on a Cloudy/Daylight scene

The wrong white balance gives, in this case, a depressed look to the picture. It’s colder and we associate cold and snow with sorrow.


Assignment 1

6758 - 20170208.jpg

50mm – f/5.6 – 1/60s – ISO 160

This is definitely my favourite image, I think the effect of panning adds a really good effect. I had to take a lot of shots before getting a good panning effect.

6761 - 20170208.jpg

50mm – f/1.8 – 1/250s – ISO 160

I like the effect of shallow depth of fields on the eye. It focuses the interest on the eye. The struggle was to be sure the focus was on the eye.

6925 - 20170214.jpg

41mm – f/22 – 1/45s – ISO 200

I like the picture, but it was always hard for me to do landscape. The harder was to find a good point of view.

7050 - 20170214.jpg

50mm – f/1.8 – 1/20s – ISO 2000

I had a problem with my tripod when I tried to take the picture, so I had to handheld… that is why I don’t like the photo. There is some handshake and noise because I had to pull up the ISO.

6997 - 20170214.jpg

85mm – f/5.6 – 1/1000s – ISO 200

I really liked taking pictures at the skating ring. I tried to capture movement as freezing motion.

Lab : 3

Part 1 :

Still Life








The wider the lens is, the more background we can see. The pencil case seem also farther, then it is.









Almost the same, but at 300mm the two persons seem to be at the same level, even if the distance between them is the same.

Part 2 :







The background of the image is sharper when the lens is wider, even at the same aperture. Distortion is happening more clearly also when it’s wider.

Part 3 :

Lab : 1

  1. Shoot in a busy area of Dawson

4493 - 20170125.jpg

3.2s f/8.0 ISO 100

  1. Shoot hand held with slow shutter speeds



  1. Shoot motion frozen and motion blurred


Blur Motion : 1/10s f/7.1 ISO 400.

I definitely tried to get a blurred portrait, I slowed my shutter speed and closed my aperture, I could’ve lowered my ISO more. The motion makes the image feel more calm and artistic, because the focus is on the background that is very organized.

Frozen Motion : 1/500s f/1.4 ISO 400

I wanted a frozen motion, so I put a faster shutter speed, I also opened my aperture, but I could’ve had a higher ISO. It is more static, it makes the focus on subject and less on the back ground and the picture as a whole.
