Assignment 7

Worms Eye View:

Bird’s Eye View:

Reflection Questions:

  1. I feel like photographing from unique angles and perspectives can improve your photography because then you are more used different perspectives and when photographing other things, you can capture an angle that most people don’t normally see which can make the photo much more interesting.
  2. I feel like this photo is the most successful because it is from a very strange angle, making it unique and pleasing to the eye.
  3. Overall I though this project was very fun and educational but I would extend the time that this project is due one more day because I did feel rushed which made some photos not turn out as good as they could of and I had to spend a lot of time outside of class taking photos.

Grading  Yourself:

A: 20/20 because I had more then the minim amount of photos for each subject.

Q: 20/20 because I spend a lot of time editing in photoshop and LR including time out of school.

C: 20/20 because I used at least three guidelines for each image that I posted.

CC: 20/20 because I spent a lot of my time working on this assignment, including time outside of class.

 

 

Gallery Visit

1. Describe your favorite photograph.
This image is of a decorative spider, hanging up against a pink wall. There is a garage in the bottoms right of the image and a small green bush in the bottom left. The spider is hanging from a strand of lights and following the spiders legs are stains due to rain or other weather.
2. Why did you choose this picture?
I chose this picture because this image doesn’t have much going on in it, but it is so pretty and tells a story.
3. Do you see any compositional guidelines?
The compositional guidelines I found in this image is framing, simplicity, and asymmetrical.

Assignment 6

Forced Perspective:

Simplicity:

Choice of Any Compositional Guideline:

Symmetrical:

Asymmetrical:

Leading Line:

Framing:

Questions:

  1. I believe that rule of thirds, symmetrical and asymmetrical are the rules I understand the most because they are very simple and easy to understand. I also knew I little bit about them before taking this class.
  2. I think that panning is the most difficult compositional value because I don’t fully understand it and it is very hard to get a good panning picture.
  3. I would like to work in the studio more next semester and take more portrait like photos.

Grading Myself:

20/20 because I had two times the amount of minimum photos I was supposed to have.

20/20 because I spent a lot of time editing in photoshop and I did some work at home.

20/20 because all my photos use at least 2 compositional guidelines required.

20/20 because I took many of these photos outside of class during my own time.

  1. This is simplicity because the subject is the main focus of this picture, with no distractions in the background.
  2. The quality of light in this image is diffused because there are no harsh shadows or no direct light.

Forced Perspective:

  1. This image is known as forced perspective because there is an optical illusion of a man eating a cloud, but he isn’t really eating a cloud.
  2. The light in this image is direct light because there are harsh shadows and the sun is directly hitting the subject.
  3. I think this image is successful because it is quit amusing to think someone/something can eat a cloud, the image looks very real and very cool.

  1. This image is forced perspective because there is an optical illusion of a tea cup pouring clouds out of it, but it is not actually happening.
  2. The light in this image is direct light because there are harsh shadows and the sun is directly hitting the subject.
  3. I think this image is successful because it looks like a tea cup is pouring clouds into the sky, even though it isn’t. It looks very cool because of the illusion.

Assignment 5

Shallow DOF:

Deep DOF:

Questions:

  1. I think the hardest part of this assignment was finding people to take pictures of. Many people do not like their picture to be taken.
  2. When you do shallow DOF you take more doomed or closer pictures while when you take deep depth of field, you take farther or less zoomed out pictures.
  3. I like this picture the most because this picture was taken when this person was actually laughing and it looks genuine and beautiful.
  4. I really enjoy taking people’s portrait, taking pictures of people is really fun because I love to catch emotion in an image.
