My collage.

I’m a simple man doing simple things. Since around 6th grade i started playing Fallout, starting with fallout 3. Absolutely loved it, and eventually played new vegas, 4, and fallout 76. Fallout 76 is undoubtedly the worst of them all but i still enjoy it alot for the pvp aspect, making it really the only reason why i play the game still. Another thing i love is music, there are a few bands that i have been listening to for around 7 or 8 years like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Muse and Coldplay. By far my most favorite and memorable bands, it brings nostalgia whenever i listen to certain songs. Sometimes on the side i watch anime, I’m not a diehard anime fan but i like a few animes and watch when im bored or just feel like watching a few episodes. Some of my favorites are A Silent Voice, Your lie in April and Mob psycho. Like i said, a simple man doing simple things.

Understanding all different image file formats

  1. JPEG – JPEG files are compressed quickly in the camera, and thus result in a loss of detail and quality. They are essentially set up to store as many images on the memory card as possible.
  2. TIFF – This is the most commonly used industry-standard file format, and is generally what print or publishers ask for. Even if the end file format required is a JPEG, the initial captured file would be TIFF.
  3.  RAW – It is the best option if you want to get the absolute best file from your camera – this is the option preferred by professional photographers. Raw files are compressed using a process that retains all of the information originally captured.
  4.  DNG –  This file format, created by Adobe, is an attempt to create a standard raw file format across all manufacturers and cameras.
  5. PNG – Designed in the 90s as an improvement for GIF file format, PNG files are ideal for use on the internet.
  6.  GIF – Like PNGs, GIF files are ideal for use on the internet. Lossless compression means image quality is not sacrificed, and like PNGs they also offer the ability to maintain
  7. BMP – BMP was invented by Microsoft, initially for use on the Windows platform but is now recognized by programs on Macs as well. BMPs are large file sizes as color data is saved in each individual pixel in the image without any compression.
  8.  PSD – This file type is what Adobe Photoshop uses as a default to save data. The big advantage of PSD files are that it allows for manipulation on specific individual layers, rather than on the main image itself.


Dog over moon 😀
Jerry Uelsman- I really like this piece of art because I think it has some sort of literal meaning. Trees are used for wood to make houses so I think this image is supposed to represent how houses are literally made of trees.

Conceptual self portrait

Conceptual portraits are different from the other types of photography. Conceptual means “relating or based on mental concepts”. I enjoy playing the guitar (even though I’m not very experienced with it). A few years back it was my brother who inspired me to actually play the guitar, and he is an amazing player in my opinion. Whenever I’m bored, or when I want to take my mind off things I pick it up and practice. Along with playing, I enjoy listening to a lot of music (I couldn’t find a way to fit my headphones in there too lololol). I really started picking up music around the 5th grade when my brother showed me Coldplay. Ever since then I have always enjoyed listening and discovering new sings/genres. Not only does music affect me on a personal level, I also listen to music whenever I feel nervous/anxious to help me calm down. I listen to a variety o genres from rock, pop, lo-fi, and even Japanese pop/Japanese Rock, they are my favorite types of music to listen to but I also listen to different types of music depending on my mood. My three favorite bands that I’ve known for years are Coldplay, Muse and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Read and write: Lenses

  1. All DSLR systems offer a wide selection of lenses for their camera
  2.  You can choose many lenses from zooms, primes, macro, super telephoto, and of course, and tilt-shift lenses
  3.  The cost of the lens depends on several things. Less expensive lenses will generally have variable apertures, meaning as you zoom, the maximum aperture gets smaller.
  4. When choosing the type of lens you want, it’s important to figure out what you want to photograph so you don’t get a different type of lens
  5. More expensive lenses have a fixed aperture.
  6. Wide angles should be used when prominent foreground objects are present.
  7. Good lenses for landscape work are in the ranges from 14mm f/2.8, 16-35 f/2.8, and 24mm f/1.4.
  8. Wide angles should be used when prominent foreground objects are present.
  9. Wide angles are also handy in tight areas, like small rooms, cars, caves, etc. They can give volume to the small area.
  10. Standard lenses tend to range from about 35mm up to around 85mm
  11. 18-55mm, 18-135mm, 24-105mm, 24-70mm, and others are popular standard zooms.
  12. Prime lenses are lenses that are just one focal length.
  13. The most popular seems to be various flavors of 70-300mm or 70-200mm for shooting on the telephoto end
  14.  Telephoto zooms allow one to stand back a little when the subject isn’t quite as approachable
  15. Telephoto lenses compress distance, making everything appear closer, as opposed to wide angles which distort perspective and make things look further away.
  16. Telephoto lenses can be useful for landscapes when you want the sun or moon to appear large in comparison to other objects in the image
  17.  To be able to stop action without blurring, you need to use a fast shutter speed.
  18.  you’ll want a 300mm f/4, or 300mm f/2.8 or 400mm f/2.8 if you want to shoot like a pro
  19.  Too slow a shutter speed will result in motion blur. Typically, AT LEAST 1/500 to 1/1000 shutter speed is the minimum.
  20. At least 1/500 to 1/1000 shutter speed is the minimum when taking photos of fast moving objects
