This is the first serious attempt I’ve made at photography, but I’m excited to learn and gain experience
I saw this view of the field near our house, normally it seems more expansive, but the fog created a more enclosed atmosphere, as well as replaced the view of the mountains with a solid grey wall
This view of this room pointing upwards accentuates the scale of the space, as well as the height of the window
The contrast between the color of the snow and the color of the road bring out the line and the movement it suggests
I had seen a reference photo of a similar plant taken up close that only showed the texture of the leaves with the holes in them. if I were going to take a similar picture, I would have taken it closer to focus more on the texture, with fewer distractions from the texture and line of the concrete.
The light coming in from the left side of this room combined with the plants created a shadow effect that may have gotten lost in the photograph
Element-ShapePrinciple: emphasisI took this picture on the day we make wedding lookbook for my sister. I used the camera Canon D3400. The object I used the rule 1/3, the object was put at 1/3 on frame
I captured this precious moment on the in North Carolina zoo. Because no much time to fix the object in the 1/3 on frame, I put the object in the middle, use technical function in order to focus only this squirrel and the background to be blear.Nikon d3400
For this blog post I have decided to take five pictures that represent the designs of pictures.
I woke up this morning to a beautiful covered Blacksburg in snow right off my front porch. I chose this picture because it captures great pattern and texture of the snow.
Music and Arts
I was playing my guitar and after playing I realized how the light hit the guitar and the amplifier and showed the beauty of music. There’s a lot of depth and perspective with many shapes and lines to show the symmetry of this piece.
I chose this picture after I woke up this morning because it shows many shapes and lines with vibrant colors to represent Maryland. It is also centered to show the true concepts of art.
I was helping my friend clean his house because he had a lot of stuff to move and I thought it would be a great opportunity to take a picture to show the colors and shapes of the chips.
I chose this photo from a different angle to see what it looks like at a lower height to change things up. The globe is reflecting light because it is so smooth and has a depth and perspective to it. It is focused in the center and shows the true shape of the globe.
It was really convenient that it snowed because I got to take some pretty cool pictures of different things on campus. The snow just adds another element that would otherwise not be there. The architecture around campus has such a cool Victorian era feel to it already, but the snow almost transports me back in time. I tried my best to sort of follow the rule of thirds, especially with the pictures of the different buildings on campus, but it was kind of difficult because my glasses were fogging up and I was always on the way to go somewhere else. The picture of the hallway is from the hall I live in, and I just thought it was cool to see because it reminded me of those “How to Draw Books” when they teach you about how to draw things from a distance and about perspective. The picture of the messy desk looked a lot cooler when I was looking at it with my eyes, but I tried my best to capture what I was seeing right before I took the picture. A lot of these pictures were taken while I was doing something else and I would see something at specific angle and think “Oh that looks kind of cool” and quickly just snap a picture.
I have never actually done photography, nor have I owned a camera, that wasn’t on my phone. I went for pictures that felt aesthetically pleasing, while showing contrast and direction. Some of the pictures have snow on the branches of trees, to contrast that of the dark sky. The other pictures tend to show how light creates shadows in the night, as well as direction. The final picture, the picture of the shed, I think gives a combination of all of the previous pictures. It gives contrast from the light on the shed to the rest of the picture, giving it form and shadow. It also gives perspective from the hill in the back and the specific shape of the shed.
