In this image shows two children jumping on a trampoline and has a vocal point of the boy. We understand this vocal point by the lighting. The photograph uses natural light to form a type of halo around the boy. The colors also tell us that the other child, the girl, is ignored or forgotten. The dark shadows and light around the boy give us this type of insight on the photograph.
This photo's technique is underexposed and not in focus. However, it does not affect the quality of the photo due to its underlying meaning. There is no pixilation and although there are not many colors the shadows look very distinct to help the theme build. This photo is very pleasing to look at due to the contrast between the natural light and the darkness/shadows. The angle the photographer used is pointed more towards the boy, which again points to the theme. There is a shallow depth of field and the frame consists of the foliage in the back. There is extra space between the subject and them frame and outside of the frame there are more plants and trees.
The theme shown in this photo shows is that there is usually only one thing or idea or person in your life that is most important and other things tend to get cast away. This photo shows that the center of attention is the boy and the cast away part is the young girl. The photograph questions or challenges many of our beliefs. We want to think of ourselves as people who can "do it all" and multitask easily, but this photo suggests otherwise. I believe this photo is very beautiful not because of the theme, but because of the light and shadow that is so carefully depicted. This photo is successful due to the idea it addresses so very carefully. I love this photo because again the depiction is inspiring.
This is a black and white photo of a man in the snow holding a pane of clear plastic. He is in the center of the photo and he is looking away. It looks like he is in a park because of the trees and fences. There are dark shadows and the bent light in the pane of plastic draws your attention. There are blurry trees and cars and fence and a house in the background. The picture is slightly underexposed and the black and white colors make it look even darker. The man and the pane of plastic he is holding are in focus but the rest is out of focus. The whites look grey but not truly white. The resolution looks high.
The curved lines in the pane give a calming feeling. The fence line and tree branches lead your eyes toward the pane where you see a calm man. The man is within the center third of the picture. The camera looks like it is slightly below the mans shoulders. Maybe the point of view of a kid. It is a shallow depth of field with a low aperture. The focal point is the man and it is framed by the pane he is holding. The image is balanced with the man in the center and there is extra space all around him. The image crops off the sky and the ends of the fence. The positive space is the man and the pane and the negative space is the rest of the picture.
There is a theme that maybe this is a point of view from a child. The man is looking away like he is hiding something. Like he is holding something inside that other people see through. This burden is represented by the pane he is holding. Pane --> Pain. I think the artist was trying to show that a child doesn't see the pain that somebody hides. Maybe even a parent. If you think of the image from a child's point of view, it's a very interesting and noteworthy picture. I like this picture because I understand the message it conveys and that message is pleasing. This photo was successful in my opinion.
This is a black and white photo that shows a man holding glass in front of his face, which is in focus. The background is a bunch of trees blurred out to show that he is in a park, which on the contrary he is in complete focus in the picture. The image is underexposed by a little, and the black and white make it darker than the background. The resolution of this photo is really high for a black and white photo.
This calm photo is taken in a shallow depth of field because it is kind of like a portrait,and its also taking in a high aperture. The angle of this photo is below the mans height.the background of the photo leads us to the mans face hidden behind the pane glass window. The positive space is the man, and the negative space tis the background. The man is composed of diagonal lines because of the pane. The background is made up of vertical line because of the trees and the fence. The focal point is on the man, which is in the middle of the photo.'
The theme of the photo can be that no matter how a person is on the outside, and their surroundings, the inside is what matters. The photographer is trying to say that you shouldn't judge someone by their look, even if they're trying really hard to hide themselves, but are struggling to hide. An the man is trying to hide his identity. I like this picture because it sows how simple a photo can be, but show a lot of meaning. I think the photo was very successful.
This image is of a old man in the park, he's holding glass over his head which reflects off and you can see some of the trees which are in front of him. This image is in black and white, and is focused on the glass which the old man is holding. These colors are used to describe olden days which could mean. this park was a place frequently visited by the old man when he was younger.
This image is following the rule of thirds and is exposed to good lighting, The photographer took this facing the guy with a small f-stop to blur out most of the background. Ye, i find this image to be interesting because no one really knows what its meant to represent, this image gives many people freedom to have a different thought and give them different feelings or memories. I personally like this picture because like I had said, it could be a picture of an old man visiting the park he went to when he was little, and that reminds me that I will eventually be where he is, old and looking back at what I did as a kid.
This is an image of a man holding a square piece of clear plastic. The artist uses bright whites and dark shadows. I love how the plastic is curved so that the reflection in somewhat distorted. This image uses a shallow depth of field because the man is the only thing in focus.
The color is correct and the image is properly exposed however, it is quite pixelated. The rule of thirds is not being used because the artist wants the man to be the main focus. The image is very pleasing to look at because I'm curious of what else is behind the plastic. The lines of the tree branches direct the viewers eye towards the mans face.
This image tell a story, behind the plastic he looks like he is somewhere else. The artist is showing how the man is in his own world. He is looking away from the plastic as if there are more trees, another world inside the plastic, but instead he's just holding a piece of material outside in the cold. The image shows how the man views the world compared to how other people view it. This image is interesting to me because it makes me ask questions. I wonder what the man is thinking, how he feels about where he is, and why he is looking away.
The image is of a man holding up a mirror per say so you can see his face through the mirror. It is using black and white colors. I would say it is natural lighting and some dark shadows. The objects are half of the mans body and his face and the mirror of his face. The man is holding up mirror and is looking away.
The photo looks like it is in the winter because of how much clothing the man is wearing. I would say the photo is a tad under exposed but I think that was the idea to make it like that. I think they made it like that because maybe they were trying to come across as dreary. The image is in focus and the color of the black is white is very good. When you zoom in there is some pixelation in the photo.
It is pleasing to look at because it is very calming and dark and mysterious which makes you think. It looks dark and mysterious and they are also coming across as depression in this photo. The photographer took the photo straight on and all the focus is on the man and the background is all blurry. I think the subject fills the frame and I think there is a story being told by the mans body language and how he looks sad and depressed and how the color scheme adds to that.
I think the image is very beautiful and interesting because the image is interesting because you don't know where the man is looking. The man may be looking at something sad that would give him a sad or depressing face to make this picture. I really like this picture because it is real and mysterious and the photographer wanted you to think about what he was getting at in this picture. I think the photograph is successful because if he was trying to get the photo to make you think about what is going on and why the man is holding that up so I think it is a successful photo. There is some negative space, the negative space is the trees and the fence and everything behind the man. The positive space is only the man because he is the focus in the photo.
This image depicts a man holding some kind of plastic sheet which distorts the light on and around the mans face. The whole thing is in black and white which makes the lighting look different. The picture is focused on the man holding the plastic and it alienates him from the rest of the world.
The image looks as if it is under exposed but it could be an artistic choice made by the artist. The image is in focus and there is a shallow depth of field. The colors look correct, emphasizing the snow and tree difference in color quite well. There is no pixelation that I can see and there seems to not be any fuzziness with the image.
The image looks pleasing because it shows the calmness of a winter wonderland. This allows the image to demonstrate the feeling of taking a minute to smell the roses. Nature is highlighted very well in the image but the person is emphasized as well. The person is being highlighted by the warped lines all around his face. His face seems calm which reflect back on the world around him.
This photo is very beautiful. The rule of thirds is applied so that the subject is in the middle of the frame. It looks like a portrait. It is not framed. My eye is mainly directed to the slanted lines of the fence, and the vertical/horizontal lines of the plexiglass.
This image is symmetrical. The subject does not fill the frame, but it was shot in a shallow depth of field. The frame cuts off the forest in the back. The positive space is the man in focus, and the negative space is the forest in the back.
The photographer uses natural lighting. He or she used plexiglass to create an abstract message. It is a little underexposed. It is very dark and mysterious. It leaves the viewers in awe.
This is a composition of a man who is looking through a plastic sheet. This image is in black and white primarily, and this is used to convey a sad or depressed tone. This tone is further conveyed by the look of sadness or longing on the face of the man. The lighting allows for reflections off of the plastic that the man is looking through, thus giving another perspective to the image. The man looking through the plastic is the only part of the image that is in focus. This man is looking through this sheet at something far off in the distance that we cannot see. This image uses exquisite technique. The photographer exposes the image just right, and the man who is holding the plastic is the only part of the image that is in focus. There is a black and white color scheme on this image. Furthermore, there is no pixelation on this image and the resolution is sufficient.
The form in this image is very interesting. The image is pleasing to look at due to a number of factors. the rule of thirds is, to an extent, being used in this image. The action of the image is, however, in the middle third. We are seeing this image from the point of view of the photographer, who is solely an onlooker at the situation, and the photographer takes this picture from a slight angle in order to make the photo more interesting. The focal point of this image is the man holding the plastic sheet. I would say that this photo is framed due to the fact that the blurring of the background draw our attention to the one thing in the photograph that is focused, the man. There is one main set of lines in this photo that commands our attention, and those are the curving lines on the mans filter that he is holding up. These lines draw attention to the face of the man and give the viewer the impression that this man is at peace. The photographer cuts off the image that the man is looking at, and there is extra space around the subject which is blurred out by the depth of field that the photographer used. There is negative space all around the man, who is in the center of the picture. The content in this photo matches the exquisite form used to create it.
There is one major theme that the photographer is trying to convey in this image. He is conveying a general undertone of peaceful sadness. This man is looking through a lens, maybe trying to imagine what he wants the world to look like, but he realizes that the world is what it is, and that is why the lens may be clear, to convey the fact that the world is what it is and nothing can change that. This realization seems to bring sadness to this man, yet he has accepted is. The black and white colors elicit the emotions of sadness yet peacefulness from the viewer. The artist made this image in order to convey that the world is what it is. I believe that this image is challenging the belief that we can all change the world, and this is conveyed primarily by the clear lens that the man is looking through. This is a rather pessimistic stance taken by the man.
I find this image to be very entertaining. It makes us think and challenge our assumptions that we may have about the world. This photograph is successful in that sense. It is a beautiful image that conveys a thought provoking message.
The image is of an old man who is holding up what looks to be a piece of glass. The glass is reflecting the trees and sky. The image is in black and white. The man is standing in front of what looks to be a park fence staring off into the distance. The lighting is very bright because he is outdoors and the sun is shining.
The photo is perfectly exposed its not too dark or bright. In the image the old man is in focus along with the piece of glass he is holding over his face. The photo is not too pleasing to look at. I think the glass with the reflections is trying to distract you from the man.The man is the focal point and is being framed by the glass he is holding. The positive space is the man and the negative space is the background with the trees.
The story is that the man is trying to distract you from him and notice everything else in the photo. The artist wanted you to look around and see what wasn't in focus.
I personally like the photo. I think it is cool with the reflections of the trees in front of the man. it brings your attention to the reflection and the lines push your attention to other places such as the background. The man is trying to push the focus away from him and to the reflection and his surroundings.
This photograph depicts a man who is possibly homeless (judging by his clothing) holding up a glass screen or a clear plastic sheet. This screen is distorting his face and the background around him. The man appears to have a content look on his face. The photographer used a black and white setting, a shallow depth of field, and a slow shutter speed. There are many trees that are blackened and gray snow, which must mean that the photographer used a low iso and aperture.
When I look at the photograph again, it looks like the man is holding up a picture that is matching his clothing and the trees behind him. The reason I believe this is that his hands have a much darker skin tone than his face. I think that the reason he is holding up the picture is because the man is trying to hide his true sadness behind a fake picture of a happy man. The reason the photograph is black and white is to symbolize the amount of people that do this. There are many people in the world that hide their true emotions for a reason, whether it be feelings about someone else or feelings about their own status in life.
This image is very pleasing to look at. The photographer took the picture at a standing angle with the focal point being the man. The lines that guide you toward the man in the center would be the tree branches and the fence line. The picture crops off at the edge of the two trees' branches in the background. The positive space of the photograph would be the man and the negative space would be behind the tree line.
I believe the artist's intention was to show the viewer how frequently people their true emotions. This image reminds me of the book "The Giver". The reason it reminds me of that book is probably due to the black and white setting and the theme. At first, I did not like this photo, as it was hard to understand the artist's intentions. But as I looked harder, I noticed the true intention of the photograph.
This is a picture of some one holding up a clear sheet of plastic or clear glass, and his face is seen through it. The colors used are black and white probably to go with the age of the man holding the sign. The main point of the picture is the man and the clear sheet, but there is also houses and trees in the background. The trees and the houses may hint that he is at a park or in his local neighborhood.
The picture is slightly underexposed, but that gives it more character along with the black and white. This image was most probably shot in a shallow depth of field. We can assume that is was because the man who is centered in the picture is perfectly clear and in focus, but the background including the trees, houses, and fence are blurred. This picture was most likely shot with low ISO since there is no pixelations and the exposure is crips, even when you zoom in on it. It is hard to tell if all of the colors are correct since it is black and white, but from what is shown it appears that all of the colors have the correct lighting and are not under or over exposed.
The composition has the clear sheet with some reflections of the scenery behind the camera, which focuses the attention on the old man infant of the camera. In my opinion the composition works since the first thing you notice is the man in the center of the exposure. The rule of thirds is being used since there man is perfectly centered in the image and there is even space on both sides of him. The picture was taking at a head-on angle to the man since you can see him standing in the center of the exposure. The focal point is the man, but he is not framed by anything in this picture. Although he is not framed by anything the fence and the stick on the ground are pointing to him drawing attention to the man in the center.
I think the theme of this is that the man in the exposure is reflecting on his past. I thought of this because he is holding something that is transparent but at the same time reflecting of the things off camera. He can't physically see his past but he can reminice on it, and he can acknowledge that it is there. It is the same for us we can't physically see what is off camera, but we know that it is there and we can see a small reflection.
I like this photograph because it is a crisp shot with a lot of emotion and feeling in it. I believe that it is successful because it conveys a different feelings to viewers depending on who is viewing the photograph.
This is an image of a man holding up a square piece of either plastic or glass. The man is standing in a fenced off field with nobody behind him. The image is black and white to express the simplicity of the photo. The only prop in this picture is the piece of glass or plastic that the man is holding, but there are a few trees in the background with no leaves on them. The picture seems to have been taken on a cloudy day because the picture looks a little dark and the shadows are very small. The man in the picture seems to be looking at something in front of him.
The image seems to be correctly exposed and is focused on the man. The resolution is correct but the background is blurred. The composition is pleasing to look at because it shows how humans focus on humans, not on nature. The rule of thirds seems to be used because the man is in the middle of the frame and the trees are in the left and right frames. The photographer was standing directly in front of the man when he took the photo. The picture is framed by the trees, the sky, and the fence. The lines on top of the fence and the left tree branches lead my eye to the man but the right tree branches lead my eye away from the photo. The image is close to symmetrical because there is a tree on each side.
The theme of the photo is that people focus on people, not nature. This is why the photographer made the trees in the background blurry. The photo reminds me of a movie scene I saw where a character was standing in an empty meadow. I enjoy the photo because it makes me want to focus more on nature rather than my own busy life. I, like others, am constantly consumed by my daily life that I never stop and enjoy the beautiful scenery around me. For this reason I think this photo is successful.
The image consists of a warmly dressed man in a wooded suburban area holding (to what it appears to be) a clear plastic sheet up to his face. He seems to be looking off in the distance with a content look on his face. However his eyes are sad. It is a black and white photo with natural lighting. Even though the image is black and white I can tell it is not a sunny day. it is probably partly cloudy.
The photo was shot with a shallow depth of field. This depth of field makes the man the focus of the image. However you can see the reflection of the trees. The blurred trees of the background can be seen on the plastic screen. It looks like the picture was slightly underexposed, but I think that is the aesthetic the artist was wanting to portray. The rule of thirds are not being used because the man is close and center of the photo. This is a symmetrical image.
The artist is trying to tell a story a bout the the man. The way the man is clothed may indicate that he is poor or homeless. The clear screen portrays the what an outsider may see. You can directly look through the screen and see the man, but he is different than you may judge him to be. Stranger may only see the outside but the reflection of the trees (nature) can protect him. nature is where he feels at home. I don’t necessarily like this picture but I am intrigued and fascinated by it. I admire the lighting but I am confused by the content.
The photo is a man holding a piece of plastic. He is right at the middle of the picture. But he is not looking directly to the camera. The man is in a park. There're trees and fence behind him. The reflection of the lights on the piece of plastic turn to curve lines. Because the picture is a black and white photo, so the curve lines become more noticeable.
The curve line give us a graceful and slow feeling. The trees and the fence behind always lead to the man. So if we look at other things, the lines would lead our eyes back to the center of the picture, which is the man. The photo is underexposed and turned out to be a little dark. However, I think the dark color fit the topic of picture. The picture has a shallow depth of field, other things are blurry except the man. The positive space of the picture is the man. The trees and fence are the negative space.
I think the man is trying to use the plastic to hide his face. I ponder that it means people don’t usually show their true emotion. They always try to hide their things deep inside to fit others’ opinion. The picture is very extraordinary because it shows some meaning, meanwhile, it’s a very beautiful picture.
