Category: Student posts>HW1-Composition
1. Identify the photograph with the name of the photographer and the name of the photograph. Write a short description of the subject matter and location. Then, identify the intention of the photographer. What is the purpose of the image? What is the mood or feeling of the photograph?
2. Select three of the formal elements from the Steve McCurry video that are most important in the photo that you selected. Write a second paragraph describing the photographer’s use of those three compositional principles.
1. Rule of Thirds
2. Leading Lines
4. Frame within a frame
5. Figure to Ground
6. Fill the Frame
7. Dominant Eye
8. Patterns and Repetition
How do these elements help create the mood or feeling of the photograph?
Please include a link to the photograph so I can easily find it or describe it very clearly.
