Digital Photography Topic
I am exploring New York (the East Village). I am interested in this because I want to photograph the more detailed and interesting things of one neighborhood. In my photograph here, you can see a door and a step going down. There is also a lot of graffiti. I know that this is some type of entrance and it is located on Rivington Street. My interpretation of this photograph is that this entrance is not to an apartment building.
It has been said that one photograph is worth a thousand words. This could be true about this photograph because it has many small details and there are many things going on here in the photo . It reflects my theme in that it shows a part of the Lower East Side, and its probably one of those lesser seen things.
One thing that I know about the East Village and the Lower East side is that is that there are many small things that make it unique. One thing that I wonder about why all the details are there in the first place and why it was chosen to make it in this one area is.This makes me think of walking through a new neighborhood, and seeing new and different things.
This photograph was taken by Iyon Photography and was found. In this photograph, I see a street lamp covered in mosaic tiles, and people crossing a street and buildings in the background. Its a very colorful photograph, and there are many things in the picture. I know that this picture was taken at St. Marks place and 2nd Avenue. My interpretation of this photograph is that the photographer made the focus of the picture the is the street lamp covered in mosaic tiles, and wanted to show what was going on behind that. I don't really think that the photographer is using any element of composition. This photograph relates to my photograph because its showing a piece of the East Village and also shows a small part of the neighborhood, that can't be found in other neighborhoods. As I look at this and other photographs, my next photographs will portray the same things. If I were to look up some information about my theme/topic, I would like to know more about what types of photographs other photographers are taking of the same topic.
Since you are reading this post, I would like to ask you if there was anything to change about the way or places I photograph, what should I change?
