Assignment 1- Jonathan Namovic

I decided to use the built in photo editor in Android messenger as my found system. I started with a close up photo of my friend Miles and I repeatedly put it through the editor.  The photo editor has multiple simplistic sliders such as contrast,shadows, and sharpness. In order to keep each individual jump relatively small, I turned each of these sliders only halfway up. The entire process took 45 iterations to reach the final picture.

The sharpness slider definitely had the most impact on the picture overall as its attempt to remove “blurriness” often resulted in the colors blending later on in the sequence. It is also interesting to see how the sliders changed as the photo changed. Towards the end of the process, the shadow slider which usually makes the darkness in the photo much more prominent, actually enunciated the whites in the photo.
