Leading Lines

Leading Lines

While I was in my sister's room, I noticed that her hardwood floors
had the perfect lineage for this assignment. 
The grain in the wood leads the eye towards the
subject of the photo.

In this image, the lines in the wood lead up to the fish. 
Being the only thing in direct focus, the fish is obviously
the subject of the photo.

In this image, the sides of the wood lead to me,
laying on the floor. In my opinion, while still utilizing
the skill of leading lines, this image was the weaker of the two seen.

This is because the image of myself has a-lot of clutter in the background.
This takes away from the focus that the lines created in order to frame the 
object of the image. But, the eye shoots to the pictures and objects in the 
background as well as my face. This makes the image less effective.

Rule of Thirds



Rule of Thirds

In this image, Bubba is focused in the right-most side of
the grid. This puts her off to the side, making it more
obvious that her gaze is off into the left side. It shows more 
interest than an image facing the back of her head.

In this image, Bubba seems to be focused in the entire image.
In fact, the focal point of the image would be Bubba's head, 
which is set to the right-most side of the grid. If it had not put
The Rule of thirds into use, this image would most likely
be facing the front of Bubba, not focusing solely on her face or
the area in which she is staring.

Point of View

Point of View

For this assignment, I chose to photograph my Boston Terrier in different perspectives. 
She was asleep, which is very rare for her, and she looked peaceful in the slumber.
I wanted the viewer of my images to be able to figure out that:
- Yes, this is a dog
- Yes, it is asleep
But I also wanted the viewer of the images to see different interpretations of the image.
