The first picture was normal lighting while the second picture I took with flash. I hung a piece of white paper on the white wall. In the first picture, the paper has a slight yellowish tone in front of the dirty white wall. In the second photo (flash), the tone gets "cooler" and more blue. There is also more of a contrast between the two whites.

Ways of Seeing

My biggest takeaway from John Berger's Way of Seeing was with regards to the camera. The addition of the camera completely changed the way we are able to view art today. A pressing point was with the angles and such, which we often see with girls and snapchat all over the world everyday. It's all about which angle makes you look the best. Also, nowadays, it is less important to actually see a work of art on person because we can just Google search any piece of art and see it in less than a second. Time has brought us many new ways of seeing and interpreting art and it really depends on the eye of the viewer.
