Leading Lines

In both photos, I decided to use the lines on my deck as leading lines in order to draw the viewers attention towards the focal point of the image; my dogs. Personally, I believe that the second picture came out much better than the first because of the angle it was taken at. I focused on making sure to have leading lines coming from the corners of my image, both have leading lines coming in from the bottom corners. Overall, I think that leading lines do help make an image more interesting if they are used correctly.

Rule of Thirds

The two images above demonstrate the rule of thirds. The rule of thirds is that the photo should have a focal point that is set on one of the crosshairs if an image were to be separated into a 3 by 3 group of squares. In the first image, I set it up so that my hand would be the focal point. I placed my hand so that it would be centered on the imaginary crosshairs, this making it apply to the rule of thirds. For the second image, I also used by hand, but this time I tried to make it smaller and only hit the top right crosshair. Overall I believe that the pictures came out better than they would have if I were to just take them without the knowledge of the rule of thirds. I think that that the rule of thirds definitely allows the photographer to take better-angled shots and also make their pictures more interesting.

Point of View

The reason I chose this statue of a mermaid is that I knew that I wanted to take a picture of something outside, but I also knew that I wanted whatever it was that I was going to take a picture of, to stick out in contrast to the background. I took multiple different pictures of different objects, but the three above were the ones that I thought best conveyed what I was going for. The first photo above was taken at an angle below the statue. I thought it was interesting how the angle made the ball she's leaning on as well as herself much larger than they actually were. The second photo was taken from a half-side, half-front view. I thought this photo was interesting because it conveyed her appearance more than the first picture did. This picture had added details that were not in the first picture because of the way it was taken. Lastly, the final picture was taken from a front-on perspective. I thought that this one showed the most detail on the clothes she wore as well as her e…
