Collage

October 9, 2021 • darleensaldana

This is my collage, obviously, but as you can see i really like music. Well, to be honest i love music. It has been my escape from reality. Its just so calming to listen to, and there are so many variety’s as well. Another reason why i love music is because since there is so much to listen to, its like i can listen to it forever. I was first introduced into indie in 2017 by my older cousin, he showed me different kinds of music. Before i used to listen to pop, like whatever was on the radio, and now since i look back onto it, its kind of embarrassing. In 2019, when i was doing homework one day, i listened to my other cousins playlist. The music just filled my head and it was like my worries went away. I can still remember the song it was, it was “Sunflower” by Rex Orange County. That song is now very nostalgic to me, and i just wish i can listen to the song again for the first time. After that playlist i started listening to different kinds of music. I listen to indie, alternative, and rock a lot, but never country.

I listen to still lots of different genres of music. I recently have started getting into the band “Surf Curse” because of one of my friends. He has amazing taste in music as well, i ask him to recommend me songs to listen to when i am bored. Anyways thought, music is amazing, i really do not know what i would do without it. Currently the main bands i listen to now are nastyona (a korean alternative band), tv girl, surf curse, and crystal castles. One of my forever favorite bands are “My bloody Valentine” which is the reason why i made my blog this. MBV is a band from the 90s and its usually more guitar you hear than actual lyrics.

As you can tell one thing i have on the collage is manga. I love reading in general, but my favorite thing is to read mangas. They are so interesting read and the drawings are just amazing. One of my favorite Manga artist is Junji Ito, he makes horror manags. I currently only have two of his mangas, but i am going to buy more when i have the time to. Junji Ito’s mangas are so good, and his drawings are just so perfect. The first manga that i ever got of his was “Uzumaki”, that manga really scared me, but it was so interesting and there were so many twists. Thats really all, Thank You.

Read and write: File types

DNG is a lossless format, equivalent to RAW. Contrary like Raw, DNG keeps image data in a compatible, generic format. Even though it was created for applications on Adobe, any software that can read or transform DNG format can be used.

TIFF is another a lossless file, which mainly used with graphic artists, photographer, and publishers. Depends on how you save the file, information is retained in layers. `Also, since there is no loss in quality when the image is printed, it is good for printers. It is better for printers because it show more shades of colors and better visual of contrast, exposure, white balance, etc.

GIF is the file type with the moving images. Usually these files use the GIF format; this format is good for graphics and visuals with animation. Graphic artists and Web designer use them to create artworks like simple logos and banners. One con about the GIF file is that it makes the data compression very lossy, therefore not recommended for your photos

PNG was first created for a better replacement for GIF. Now it is a popular format used by photographers and graphic designers. Why you may ask? The format supports lossless data compression, making sure your information is retained when you save and reopen your image.

JPEG is mostly used for digital cameras as a default format. JPEG is one of the most common file type which is used online and/or for hard prints. Because of its lossy compression algorithm, it removes minute details that the eye is not likely to notice, which saves space.

RAW files are usually processed exactly from the camera’s sensor, so they do not use compression. Since they are lossless, the images are high-quality. RAW shows more shades of color, contrast, exposure, white balance, and better representation.

ANGLES critique

September 9, 2021 • darleensaldana
I choose this photo because I like the reflection of the buildings on the water. It really caught my eye. The first thing that caught my eye when i saw this photo was the angle of the photo. One of the things that i like about this photo is that it is black and white. I also like it because the photo is tilted, it has a vertical line, and it is also in Eroupe.

surrealism

September 8, 2021 • darleensaldana

This painting was made by Salvador Dali in 1940. What inspired him was the misery and terror of his traumatic events at war. I chose this photo because it catches my eye. I think this is a surrealist photo because a huge head is not supposed to be in the middle of a dessert.

SHADOWS

August 30, 2021 • darleensaldana

I chose these images of shadows because lines in the shadows and the detail behind them. The reason I chose the first picture because I like the pose of the boy in the picture. I chose the second picture because i like the way the lines of the shadows are. I chose the last picture because I like the angles of the shadows by the stairs.
