Forced Perspective

Image
This picture was taken in Washington D.C. at the Washington Monument. My dad helped me take the picture by getting low and telling me where I should place my hand so it looked like I was touching the top even though I was 2 miles away from it. This technique is a cool allusion to the eye because at first glance people think I am actually touching the top of the monument but I am actually just far away and placed my hand so it looks like I am touching it. Creating this image took a couple tries because I wanted the picture to look real. There was a certain angle my dad had to stand in order to make that happen. I think the photo came out very well and it looks pretty real.

Leading Lines

Image
These two pictures both have leading lines that direct the eye to a certain spot. In the first picture, the lines from the balcony and the rows on the bottom, all lead the eye to the brightest part of the photo. It creates a more interesting photo by giving it symmetry and depth. In the second picture, the wood posts lead the eye to the water in the upper left hand corner. At first glance, the wood posts catch the eye but the more you look at it, the water is noticed. The leading lines technique makes the picture more interesting and dynamic.

Rule of Thirds

Image
I used the rule of thirds while taking these pictures to capture the background of the two objects. For the first picture I set my computer onto my bed. If I just took a picture with the computer in the direct center, it is dull and boring. But since I captured my bed, it lets the eye wonder the picture and it is more interesting. For the second picture I found this paper heart that was hanging on my doorknob. Again if I took the picture of just the paper heart, it would not be exciting and would only take a second to look at it. I included my yard and put the heart in the upper left hand corner so the picture can include the outside and give the observer more things to look at.

Point of View

Image
I decided to take pictures in different points of view with glasses. When I was taking different pictures I figured out that I could capture cool shadows if I took the photo at a certain angle. Glasses are not the most interesting object I could have chosen but it was interesting to make it look "artsy." In the first photo, the shadow gives the glasses depth and a 3-D image, which in my opinion is intriguing to the eye. The second picture is from the side to view the glasses at a different perspective and it also captures the shadows. The third picture is from the front. At first people could argue that it is not that exciting but the more you look at it, you notice the shadows and how the shadows are off to the side but the glasses are facing forward.
