What locations and subject matter did you choose to shoot for your photo? I chose to take a photo of the power lines outside in the yard.
Describe the photo you took: In the first power line photo you can see the shapes in the structure going up to the power lines. You can also see the sky with the clouds during the sunset.
What is the distance in the shot? (How close or far away are you from your subject?) I stood right near the woods of the yard to take the first picture. I tried to go as far away as I could.
What was your point of view when you took the photo? (from above, below, straight on...) I was below the power lines and in the front, but off to the side of it.
Is your photograph horizontal or vertical? The photograph is horizontal.
Did you consider the rule of thirds to compose your shot? Describe. Yes, I lined up one of the poles to the power lines with the first vertical line. I also had the brightest spot in the bottom right area and the darkest spot in the top left area.
Which one of your photos is a dynamic composition that successfully leads the viewer’s eye through the work? The first picture of the power lines is dynamic and if you follow the poles up to the lines it guides your eyes though the photo.
Pattern and Texture
Describe your best photo: My best photo is the first one of my tortoise. This photo is a close up of my tortoise walking around in the grass outside.
What is the distance in the shot? (How close or far away are you from your subject?) I was inches from my tortoise in the shot and I was on the ground. What was your point of view when you took the photos (from above, below, straight on...) I was straight on from my tortoise when I this shot.
Is your photograph horizontal or vertical? This photograph is horizontal.
Does this photo follow the rule of thirds? Why or why not? (Describe) This photo follows the rule of thirds because my tortoise is about a third to the right of the photo and the bottom of him is about one third up in the photo. He was off centered.
.Is this photo an example of pattern, texture and/or rhythm? Explain. This photo is an example of texture because you can see the texture of his face, legs, and shell, along with the fuzzy parts of the grass.
Which image is the best example of a properly exposed photo? Explain why. The best example of a properly exposed photo is the seventh picture that was of the railing in the indoor track because it has some light grey where the wood is, but the railing is darker and there is still detail. The photo also isn't too grey and the reflection of the light is a nice contrast from the more shaded part if the railing.
