In my digital photography class, I think I'm doing pretty well with my theme. I feel as though I have changed what I'm taking pictures of within my topic. I originally started my theme as being The East Village, and then I moved onto taking pictures of graffiti in the East Village. I would like to have some more feedback on my second photo discussion, so maybe I can make my work better. I also think I'm doing well with changing my pictures to make them look better, and this is teaching me what I need to change in my photographs.
I am exploring the East Village. I am interested in this because its the neighborhood I live in, and I think there are many interesting things that are worth photographing there.
I took the first photograph, and you can see it is a peace mural. I know that this is a graffiti mural. My interpretation of this photograph is that its trying to get the message of peace out by expressing this art in the neighborhood.
It has been said that one image is worth a thousand words. This could be true about this photograph because it sends people a message through graffiti art, which may attract attention to people. It reflects my theme in that it was taken in the East Village, but also that it is something interesting, that may not be seen in other neighborhoods.
One thing that I know about the East Village is that there is a lot of graffiti in the area, but most of it may be considered vandalism. One thing that I wonder about graffiti is if its considered art.
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.
