For this photograph I decided to use chair legs to create strong diagonal lines. I took the photograph at an angle so that the chair legs would stretch from the bottom right corner of the photo and up through to the top right corner.
This photo is successful because of the use of diagonal lines. All of the lines start at the edge of the photo and draw the viewers eye to the middle of the photo. They also act as leading lines, in the same way. It’s as if the lines are pointing toward the subject, or middle of the photo. The photo also uses the rule of thirds.
What kind of subjects did you photograph? In this particular photograph, a glass plate with lines and curved lines was shot. In other photographs that were taken for this assignment, there were picture frames, pillows, and wired fences as the subjects.
What were some of your challenges you encountered?
This is a photograph of a collapsed swing that is laying in a pile on my porch. Being made up of simply wood and rope, when it is not hung up it simply looks like a pile of wood. I thought it would be interesting to photograph this from different angles and explore various angles. I chose this photo because it shows strong diagonals and lines.
I chose to post this image because it was my favorite photograph that I had taken. I felt that it portrayed a happy mood, and it gives off a positive attitude when people look at it. I feel that the mood is working well, and it gives off a happy emotion. The subject is looking off away from the camera, which makes the photo more unique than the front view portraits.
I choose to post this image becuse it was the most unique. In the photo the lines and texture are woking well. The thing that i would like to improve is the contrast. I wish there were more whites and blacks and less gray. Also the bottom right hand corner is white and i would like to fix that.
This picture is from a 35 mm camera. What works well in this picture is the composition and the contrast. The angle was not at eye-level. It was important to get an interesting angle focus on the focal point, which was the girl's face (some say the eyes). Having her face half of the picture and the other half on the leaves and the grass, makes the photograph balanced.
