100 Most Influential Images

Gorilla in the Congo by Brent Stirton was taken in 2007 of a gorilla that weighed 500 pounds being carried by at least a dozen man. Gorillas were being shot dead as a violent conflict. Resident and park rangers carefully and respectfully carried the gorilla out of the forest. I chose this images because it shocked me how people could treat animals.
Fetus, 18 weeks by Lennart Nilsson was published in 1965 the image was the first image to reveal what a growing fetus looked like. This image created many questions. He photographed all of the fetus out side of the womb in which some of them fetuses had been aborted, Nilsson had a deal with the hospital which allowed him to photograph the fetus. I chose this image because it looed very interesting and topics about the development of babies interest me.
Falling Man by Richard Drew, was taken in 2001 on 9/11 of a man falling from one of the towers that was hit by the planes that the terrorist flew. He was escaping from the collapsing buildings. The picture was posted to the newspaper a couple days after the tragedy in which it received backlash. I picked this one because I have seen many images of 9/11 but never of an individual jumping out of one of the towers.


Raw is a much larger file than JPG. A raw file is a much more clearer and a neater sort of version of a picture  than JPG and it takes up more space compared to a JPG. Making a Raw file into a JPEG means lowering the detail quality into a smaller file in order to keep the image a small file. You can change the file by opening the image into an editing software and then choosing the mode you would prefer to export it as then sizing down the quality or simply choose jpg. I personally would prefer to shoot in RAW to capture the detail of a scene at an important occasion. But in general, I believe shooting in jpeg is a lot more beneficial because it saves more space in your memory card and that means more pictures!
