This image captivates me because of the high contrast between the exposure and brightness of the ocean and surroundings, with the subjects which are darker. Additionally, this photograph is effective because of the size of the subjects with relation to the rest of the space in the image; it suggests vastness and the colours suggest tranquility.
Black & white photography can be powerful, and for certain subjects work better than colour photography. This image portrays the rigidity of the apartments. It emphasizes the details, depicting the difference between each balcony. The tones of this image also lead the eye diagonally across the page from the top right corner to the bottom left.
This minimalistic image is fascinating because of how the composition of the elements lead the eye to one subject point. The contrast between the turquoise and orange colours adds saturation and warmth to the photo.
This artist mainly focuses on the deeper meaning of her images, however looking at it as a compositional piece, it is very intriguing because of the symmetry of the subject, as well as the empty space around the semi-silhouette. The shadows which fall on the shoulders suggest light shining from somewhere, but also make thee subject human, which is greatly contrasted by the empty space of the face. The dark green colour of the image isn’t warm, therefore creates a cool effect, which is emphasised by the bare skin.
The quietness of the image is beautiful. The long exposure smooths over the waves, keeping the subject still, putting focus on him. The smudged/over-exposed look of the waves, suggests kinetic movement in the photograph.DAY 6
This photo is intriguing because the white signifies purity which is represented by the subject. It is effective because it is not centered directly in the middle of the page, and is not 100% symmetrical. Also, the reflections of the archs in the water add a mystic softening effect. The rule of thirds is applicable to this photo which is a very effective technique to attract one’s eye.
I am intrigued by this photograph because of the design but also because of the sense of movement caused by the blurred person walking up which also adds a sense of activity and relationship to the space. The wood softens the bright white and the shape and angle of the photograph shows the design and movement of the staircase.
