This picture here is of a marble statue in a friend of mines yard. I think that if the picture was taken at more angels I could have gotten a better picture. Also If i got lower down and looked up at the statue.
Before I took this photograph, I was trying to think what it means to be Thankful and how I could portray this in a picture. I decided to make my picture very simple but with two hands grasping together. I feel that the picture is more significant with just the hands in the image because it makes one think about what is in the picture and what it means to them.
I tended to stick with a nature for this week’s assignment. I was in Northern Maine when I took this picture and nature really overplays everything else up there so I found it suiting. One thing about photographing up there is that in one general area it’s hard to find different subjects for pictures so you tend to get many pictures that a very similar.
I photographed these field hockey sticks in our locker room. I thought that the two sticks looked cool but it was very difficult to find an interesting angle. I ended up laying on the ground and I think that this is a successful angle. I think that this is my strongest photo for this diagonal assignment because the diagonals in the floor and the lockers lead the eye to the field hockey sticks.
I think that the diagonals in this photo are strong enough to make it a good picture. If you haven’t already noticed, this is only a bell tipped to the left a bit. When I took this photo, I tried to position the camera so I could fit in as many strong diagonals as I could. What set this picture apart from all of the others that I took of the bell that day was the rough t
When I took these photos I had a plan of what I wanted to do. I actually took my mirror out side because the clouds would reflect nicely as a background, and I collected different objects to play around with in the photos. This first one is of a green beaded necklace I found and though if I picked it up it would create a more interesting, vertical image.
I chose to post this image because I love the mixing of the elements and the feeling created by the abandoned building. I feel that the presence of the tree adds to the feeling that the building is neglected and nature is beginning to take over. I also feel that the mixing of the tin and wood shows even more how neglected the building is.
I chose to post this particular image because of the range of black and white. The blotches of color in the back ground simplified contrast with the white rock and its black shadow. However, I think this picture could have been better. If I had chosen to move the train rail further up the frame or photograph a bigger rock, the picture could have been more interesting.
