Bird’s Eye / Worm’s Eye

Bird’s Eye

 

Worm’s Eye

Reflection:

  1. Photographing from unique angles and perspectives can improve your photography by providing a different and complex perspective.
  2. I am happiest with the photograph of the picture of my brother on top of the roof in black and white.
  3. I wouldn’t necessarily change one element but photographing was a challenge having the setting being extremely limiting.

Rubric:

AI- 14/20 I didn’t submit all the photos but I did post extras for a certain category.

QT- 16/20 All photographs were edited in Lightroom and photoshop.

CD- 16/20 All photographs utilize compositional guidelines.

CC- 16/20 All photographs utilize a developing artistic style.

Activity 11:

Bird Eye

This Photograph is an example of bird’s eye photography and its strengths that drew me was the perspective provided and the symmetry. Also I love black and white photos.

Worm Eye

This photo is an example of worm’s eye and its strength is definitely the perspective and the freeze of the motion of the plane and how it’s directly in the middle being framed by the structure.

3. Eye level is the least engaging perspective because it  actually is just a boring photo, in my opinion. Worm’s eye and bird eye provide more complex photos and perspectives which usually makes the pictures overall more interesting.

4. When outside photographing, I should stay productive and manage my time in order to stay on track and get my work done.

  1. My photography has improved tremendously over the past three assignments. I’ve been able to develop the knowledge of the camera, settings, and compositional guidelines. Being able to apply that to my photographs is essential in order to have successful images.
  2. My best framing photograph is of an individual (Lorena) giving the viewer the perspective through the window and the sun and door working together casting interesting shadows. I automatically knew that it would be a very unusual and eerie image which intrigued me to capture that moment.
  3. Trying to capture line photography was difficult for me. I felt it was hard to be creative taking a good quality photo as well as capturing leading line.

Activity: Simplicity and Mergers

Simplicity

These Photographs display simplicity Photography. The first image contains direct lighting and is successful because the object is against a neutral background, The second image contains silhouette lighting and is successful because it as well has an object against a neutral background.

Merger

These Photographs display merger photography. The first image contains diffused lighting and is successful because an object is paced in front of an object further away providing an illusion of merging. The second image contains direct/silhouette lighting and is successful because an object is also placed in front of another object providing an illusion of merging as well.

9: Composition Part 2

Framing

These are examples of framing because this image is using elements of a scenic to create a frame within a frame. The first photo is almost fully silhouette photography and is successful because it is framing the man perfectly. The second photo is soft/direct lighting and is successful because it frames the car.

Leading Line

These are examples of leading line photography because it’s clearly using a technique of composition where the viewer can draw lines that lead to the main subject of the image. The first photo is of direct lighting because of the harsh shadows and is successful because there is a clear path leading to the end of the image. The second photo is of silhouette lighting and is successful because the water displays a linear path towards the direction of the mountains.

Self-Grade:

A: 16/20 because I submitted the required amount of photographs.

Q: 16/20 because all photographs are cropped, straightened, and edited using Photoshop or Lightroom.

C: 20/20 because all photographs utilize 2 or more compositional guidelines or elements of design.

CC: 20/20 because all photograph display an advanced understanding of the assignment and time outside of class was used.

Questions/Answers:

  1. After this assignment I’ve become very comfortable with using Tv mode.
  2. The effect of shutter speed on photos is very evident when taking photos. The shutter speed is ultimately responsible for controlling the amount of blur the image will contain or the amount of stability.
  3. I am most happiest with all my freeze action photos because that was the setting I was most comfortable with and the quality of those photos were good.
  4. I think I could have improved my work by utilizing time more efficiently.
