Contrast + Symmetry
Dominant + Balance (?)
Hi Leanna, nice looking images, but I have some comments that are pretty much the same as with the rest of the students. While this may look like an easy straightforward exercise, it’s not that easy to do it right. By doing it right I mean to make such images that are perfect representations of the principles you’re illustrating. Case in point:
– In both your balance image, it’s actually not clear which element is dominant, as they all compete between themselves by using similar size and color. Especially the “difference”, because most of the elements are pretty much the same.
– The way you composed your symmetry photo (admittedly you probably have to rush it) kinda breaks the symmetry itself (unparallel lines, everything “falls” towards the right side of the image)
– Depth and movement are quite ok, although I feel movement could have been more pronounced if the pink “lines” were not parallel to each other but more sort of a “falling / rotating” clock wise.
Going forward, suggestions:
– Try to focus more on representing very clearly and vividly the keywords/principles you’re showing. Keep in mind that it’s no easy task really.
– Check out my Photoshop tutorials posted under Session 1A post, to help you clean up the photos and crop the photos.
– Try making the shapes more… ordered I guess. If you want a circle, try making a decent looking circle- otherwise make a clear intent to do something that is NOT circle… Remember my suggestion to avoid “ALMOST” situations.
Hi Neko! Thank you for the feedback. Sorry for posting last minute. I’ve taken your comments into consideration and I hope that my homework has shown a better understanding of the principles and that I’ve represented them clearly
