This is a photograph of a girl looking at herself through three reflections. It looks to be taking place in her room. A lot of feminine products are on her desk. The walls are pink as well as her towel, tying everything together. The desk is a light green and all the bigger mirrors are wooden and the hand-held mirror has a painting of a flower on the back of it. The photograph has a dark shadow and looks to be studio set-up.
The image is underexposed. The image is in focus of the girl and her reflections. The color is correct because the lighter colors look light and the darker colors look dark. The image is pleasing to look at because the color captures the viewer's eye. The photographer took this photo from a ground-angle.
The focal point is of the girl holding a mirror and of her reflection in the mirror. The lines of this photo are on the wall. The wall has cracks on it that capture the viewer's eye. The negative space in this photo is everything that isn't the girl. The subject doesn't fill the frame and there is extra space.
The theme of this photograph is of a daily routine of a girl. I think that the story behind this is that a girl isn't happy with her appearance that she sees in the mirror. The image is beautiful because it depicts the insecurities all teenage girls have. I like this photograph because it reminds me of two years ago when I struggled with self image. I think that the photograph is successful because it makes young girls reflect on how they look at themselves.
This picture is of a girl looking into a mirror. Most of the colors are pink including a mirrors, BLUE jeans and a turquoise drawer. The lighting is kind of dark I think because it uses a lot of bright colors. In the photo, there is a girl looking into a mirror that is being reflected into a mirror. There is a lot of pink make-up tools and a lot of mirrors.
The image for the most part is underexposed of light due to all of the bright colors in the photo. The image is indeed in focus. Not all of the colors look correct as the wall appears white, but due to the shadowing, appears pink. Overall, there is no pix elation in the photo. It seems to have a tiny bit more focus on the girls face.
This photo is not very pleasing to look at due to all the reflections of the mirrors. The photographer is using a 1st person point of to take the photo, covering the girls face with a mirror. The girl is very self-conscious of herself as I can observe all the mirrors around her. There is a lot of open space behind her. Her room is also very unsymmetrical. The frame crops off the edge of the drawer and the rest of the girl's legs.
The theme of this photograph is to not be self-conscious of yourself and be who you are. This image personally reminds me of my sister in a couple of years, right now she is still in the toy stage but once the make-up stage hits, it'll remind me of this photo. This image is kind of confusing, therefore I don't really like it, mainly because I don;t understand it. This photograph could indeed be very successful relating to the millions of teenage girls in the world.
This photograph was taken by Holly Andres. The photo has a girl standing in her room. She is wearing a knit shirt with a collar peaking out and straight jeans to go with her shirt. On her head she is wearing a towel which probably indicates that she has just finished showering. You can see her reflection in three mirrors in the room. There are bunk beds reflecting off the largest mirror. She also has a mint green dresser which is filled with a mess of beauty products and stuff like that. She is awkwardly standing in the center of her messy room looking at her reflection through her many mirrors.
The photograph is probably used with stage lighting. Her shadow reflects behind her indicating there is a strong light behind the camera. The right side of the photograph is more properly exposed more than the left side. The side where all the clutter is underexposed. The lighting of the photo is probably right next to her on the right side and the light doesn't reach the dresser.
There is so much meaning behind the photograph, even just looking at it for a few seconds can tell you the obvious picture the photographer is trying to paint. This photograph is about self image, loving yourself for who you are and not dealing with the standards society puts on women. She is shown looking at herself in all the mirrors to represent how much we spend looking at ourselves and saying "we aren't good enough" and I strongly believe that this photograph is a proper representation of the daily struggles of a women in the society we live in today.
I really like this photograph because it is like the visual image and it describes without any words what a normal teenage girl has to face and a lot of people can relate. Although the saying is extremely cliché, the statement is true: an image CAN say a 1000 words.
The image is of a girl looking at herself in a mirror. The image is using pinks and greens because that is the theme of the girl's room. It looks like the lighting is a studio setup because there is perfect lighting with makes us see the girls's specifics like her face and what she's wearing clearly. Besides the girl, there're three mirrors and objects such as hairspray, nail polish, and a straightening iron. In the image, the girl is trying to look at her backside by using a hand mirror. I believe she is doing this maybe because she is worried about her weight and her self-image.
The image is not under exposed or overexposed in my opinion. The image is in focus because you can see all of the objects in the room clearly. The color of the photo is correct. There is adequate resolution in the image. The photo isn't really pleasing to look at because of the worried look on the girl's face.
It looks like the angle that the photographer used was above the girl so that the camera would not be shown in the big mirror. A shallow depth of field is being used. The lines are on the window, directing you to the girl's face. The subject does fill the frame. Half of the desk and the girl's legs are cropped off and at the edge of the image.
The theme that is being show in this image is how girl's are constantly inspecting themselves because they are constantly self conscious and afraid of judgment. The story being told in the image is the story of a girl who is about to get ready for something but is delayed when she starts to doubt what she looks like is good enough. The artist made this image to let people know what is going on in the minds of teenage girls. This image doesn't remind me of anything. I like this photograph because of what it represents for girls my age.
This image is of a teenage girl looking into a handheld mirror and standing in her room. The image contains shades of pinks, greens, and blues. The lighting seems to be studio set-up. Through the reflection of the mirror you can see a bunk bed. Also, on the desk, there seems to be a bunch of beauty products. She's standing infront of the long mirror and holding a handheld mirror to see the back of her body.
I feel as if the image is too light on the right and is too underexposed on the left. The entire image is in focus. The color is correct because the whites seem to be vibrant and light. The image has adequate resolution as well. There is no pixilation.
I don't think the image is very pleasing to look at because I feel as if the colors don't compliment each other. The rule of thirds is bein g used because the subject of the photo is on the right of the photo. This was taken from a 3rd person point of view. The photo is not framed and the girl is the focal point. The image is symmetrical and balanced because there is negative space.
I think the theme of this image is being a teenager. It doesn't question or challenge my beliefs. I feel as if the photographer made this image because it reminded her oh when she was a teen. This image reminds me of when I was in elementary school and we painted my entire room pink. I like this image because it has a nostalgic vibe to it.
This image portrays a teenage girl in her room looking into a hand-held mirror. Around her, there are two other mirrors within her very girly, pink room. The girl has a towel on her head as if she is in the midst of getting ready for the day. Despite the bright pink filling her room, there are plenty of dark shadows in the corners of the photograph, and her shadow is also very prominent. There are also many beauty products on her vanity (all of which are pink) and the only other objects in the picture other than those on her vanity are picture frames, a window, and the other two mirrors.
This photo appears to be almost exposed perfectly, but it could also come off as a bit overexposed. The shadows are very dark, but the girl’s face appears to be properly exposed. The image is in focus, and everything in the room can be seen clearly. The color is also correct, the shadows are black and the whites, such as part of one of the pictures on her wall, are white. There doesn’t appear to be any prominent pixelation. The photo has overall adequate resolution. Everything is focused and easy for the eye to see.
This photo is easy to look at; nothing seems to be hidden or confusing to the eye. The rule of thirds is being used because the subject, the girl, is not completely centered, but rather slightly off to the right. The point of view seems to be someone looking at the girl, and the photo is taken pretty straight on. The girl is neither above nor below the point of view. This photo also used a wide depth of field; everything is in focus. The focal point is the girl, and she doesn’t appear to be framed by anything. The lines of her shirt and the line on her wall and ceiling direct your eye to her, but also to the big oval mirror in the center of the photo. This photo is asymmetrical, for it is not identical or almost identical on each side. The subject, the girl, does not fill the entire frame, and the empty space is the rest of her room. The edge of the image cuts off the rest of her room, such as her bed and her door. The positive space is right where the girl is and the negative space is the entire surrounding area of her room.
I believe this photo represents the pressure of keeping how you look a certain way. Society has conditioned us to care about what we look like all the time, and this photo represents that. The number of mirrors and beauty products in the girl’s room show that she is clearly concerned with how she looks. Also, her angsty face show that as she looks in the mirror, she is unhappy and concerned with what she sees. I also believe that the colors in her room represent standards that are held up such as that pink is a girly color. This photo definitely reminds me of what me and probably every other teenager goes through, the pressure to looks good all of the time, especially during teenage years. I think this photo is very powerful and I like it, but it is also a bit alarming to look at because it really shows how upsetting the pressure to be perfect is.
In this photograph I see a girl looking in a mirror with a mirror behind her and one next to her. The walls in the room are pink. There is a green dresser with a mirror on it. On the dresser there is a lot of makeup. She is wearing jeans with a pink shirt. On her right there is a window with white curtains on it. There is a photograph on the wall of a cat.This photo was taken at night. It has a deep depth of field. This photograph looks to be a little under exposed. There is no one in the reflection of the mirror. So I assume this photograph was either edited or the photographer took the picture from inside the bunk bed. In the mirror there is a black figure that kind of looks like a man. The Photograph is focused on the girls face and the mirrors. The rule of thirds was used in this photograph because the girl is not in the center of the frame. I think the girl in this photograph is very self conscious. I do not like this photograph because. It gives of dark and gloomy vibes. Most photographs I see are that way.
In this image we see a girl in her room with several mirrors showing the girls reflection. The color pink show us the lack of femininity the girl feels amongst the all of the pink. The multitude of pink hints at the theme shown. The lighting is done very well in this picture considering the use of mirrors. The objects are feminine products like hairspray and combs and a flat iron. This picture, without the theme, is just a girl looking into a mirror.
This image is perfectly exposed and has a very deep depth of field. The color is correct but there are different shades of most of the colors shown that make it hard for one of the hades to be "wrong". The image is in focus which is impressive since there are many mirrors. There is not much pixilation but there is some on the cabinet drawer.
This photo is very pleasing to look at because of the similarity in colors and because of all the reflection. The focal point is the girl and the largest mirror. It is the focal point because it helps us to realize the theme shown in this photograph. This photo is not framed but certain parts of the girl are framed in the mirror. The subject does not fill the frame and the picture is leaving out the rest of the bedroom.
The ideas that are shown within the image are the lack of femininity the girl feels and how she tries to feel pretty with the use of the color pink. There is a story shown in this image. The artists intention are to recognize that all girls do not feel pretty yet they try very hard to. I agree with this images meaning because not every young girl is confident and careless about their body. This image is very beautiful and it is very successful because it gets its idea across using the mirrors. I like this photo very much because of the theme it shows.
This young lady is looking at herself two mirrors. She is holding a circular mirror and looking at herself with a full body mirror behind her. The colors being used are mostly pink and a mint blue. The lighting in this photo is average, although there is a shadow of her behind her. In this pink and blue room, there is a mint blue dresser, a lot of pink bottles, and four mirrors.
The lighting in this room is not the best. Half of the room is over exposed and the other half seems be to under exposed. This photo is focused. This photo is not pleasing to look at. This photo is very boring and nothing to be amazed about. The focal point is the girl holding the mirror.
The theme in this photo is that the photographer was trying to tell a story on how girls spend so much time trying to be perfect and pleasing people with looks. This Photo reminds me of me looking at myself for a very long time and trying to find my flaws instead of the perfections.
The Image seems to be staged in an artificially-lit room, with darkness outside the window. The walls have a faint pink color, and the roof and furniture have a faint light green. There is a desk full of beauty products, and it is, quite frankly, a mess.The room also has a large mirror in a corner, and some bunk beds on the opposite corner. It has an antique vibe to it. There is also a girl looking at herself through a mirror, with a serious expression on her face.
In a way, the edges of the roof and walls guide your eyes to the mirror, which features a reflexion of the subject. The non-reflexive subject is on the right side, while the mirror is in the middle of the image, and the desk with the products is on the left side, which makes it completely asymmetrical. The subject is precent in all three divisions of the image through reflexions off the mirrors, so the viewer can see the subject in different perspectives. The rest of the space is taken up by aspects of her room and of her daily life. The light also seems to shine specifically in on the girl in the right side of the image. There is a deep depth of field which shows all the aspects in her room in a very clear manner.
The image overall shows a girl staring deeply into a mirror. Mirrors have come to represent self-consciousness. This girl is focused on looking as perfect a she could possibly look by using all those tools and make-up present at the desk. She seems to be living in a not-so-modern time, due to the antiques and clothes she has. What makes me question this image, is the fact that she is staring straight at the camera through reflexions, not at herself. Maybe she is focused not on how she views herself, rather than how others view her. The intention of the photographer might be to show that even in the past (the artist's childhood, perhaps) self-consciousness was a problem teens had, and a problem that is still present with teens today. It shows that the standards of beauty still pressure people to do things, just like it has always done.
The photograph is successful in showing meaning and adding a bit of question by having the girl's reflexion stare right at the camera.This gives me a really uneasy feeling. Even if it makes me uneasy, I still like the image because it is portrays a concept that has resisted time, and probably keep resisting it.
The image appears to have a girl looking into a handheld mirror looking at her appearance. The girls age might be somewhere around 15-18 years old, and this is usually when girls care about their appearances a lot. The usage of mirrors might be a way so that we can see her from every angle, and the color pink seems to be the largest used color in the picture.
The image seems to be well focused on both the girl and the background. The photographer seems to mix underexposure and overexposure, by having the background dark and the girl's body really bright. There is no pixelation in the image and it looks like it has good resolution. The color pink is perfect for the theme of a girlish picture and it goes well with the color white.
The picture doesn't seem pleasant to me because it seems awkward to look at a picture about a girl adjusting her appearance in her room. The photographer takes the picture from a third person view. The theme of the picture is to be happy with the way that you look, and to not be discouraged by the way you look now.
In the photo above we see that a girl is displayed in a staged photo. The room the girl is in is has three mirrors, one of which is in her hand, and the others show her profiles. The room has a pink and green theme, which is seen in the products she has on her dresser and the window pane, ceiling, and dresser. The lighting in the room has an overall dark and shadow like appearance. The lighting is setting a negative mood and shadows are only around the mirrors and not on the girl. The photo has many beauty products on the dresser.
The photo is underexposed and has a mix of both light and dark lighting. The image is in focus and the color is well adjusted and correct. Nothing in the photo is pixelated.
The rule of thirds lets the viewer of the photo focus on the girl, but the mirror is in the center in the room as well. The photo was taken as if we were there with the girl, we are viewing the girl horizontally. The photo's frame is filled and on the left side of the photo the dresser is cut off, along with the rest of the girls legs.
The theme and overall message of the photo is that young girls can be affected by the ideas and images that the media and society put on them. Young teenage girls usually worry about the way they look and feel like they need to be a certain way to be "pretty". The overall story the photo is trying to display is that the girl in the photo is worried about her looks. The photo reminds me of some of my friends who worry about their appearance They think that everybody cares about what they look like, when in reality they're attractive. The photo does make me question if every young girl feels this way, if so it makes me feel despondent. Overall, I don't like the photo because it's not pleasing to look at and not impart to anything I feel.
The image shown is of a girl around the age of 12. She is in her room which is primarily pink with some green. The room is lit by artificial lighting and the photo appears to be taken at night. The girl has a pink towel around her head and is holding a hand mirror which has pink accents. Pink seems to be a theme used to evoke thoughts of being girly.
The image is not properly exposed, it appears slightly underexposed everywhere where the girl stands. The image is focused and its subject is the girl. The ISO is correct as the photo is not blurry or grainy. Overall the photo is well executed with minor to no errors.
This photograph’s form follows the rule of thirds, as the subject of the photograph resides off center to the right. There seems to be very little empty space in the photo, perhaps in the middle of the picture, in the foreground. The photo is very cluttered, the girl takes up a whole third of the photo, then to her left a vanity piled high with beauty products and in between them a vanity along with the low ceilings and relatively dim lighting, these characteristics create a cramped feeling.
Immediately what I notice about this photograph is the recurrence of certain items or themes. There are 3 mirrors, each giving a different angle to the photographs subject, a girl. Another recurrence is pink, there is an excess of pink in this photograph. All the products on her dresser are in pink containers or have pink labels, even her sweater and mirror have pink accents. The sore thumb in this photograph is her jeans, they seem very boyish and provide a great contrast in her presumable effort to surround herself in girly things as suggested by all the pink.
The photograph depicts a young girl in a bright pink towel on her head standing and looking into an antique looking floral hand mirror. She is in a very teenage girl- like room presumingly her own room. There is a full length mirror and a vanity type dresser behind her. There is many beauty products commonly used by teenage girls such as nail polish and hair irons. They are in a disorganized manner that are usually seen in a teenager's room. The color scheme in the photograph is baby pinks and a teal blue. This can be seen from the paint on the walls to dresser to the curtains hanging from the wall. This probably emphasizes the teenage girl image.
The photograph itself seems obviously set up as a scene and is in a dark indoor setting. There is no natural lighting coming through the window. and the light of the picture seems to be supplied by artificial studio light from behind the camera. Personally, the picture seems a bit underexposed but it is probably adding to the overall impact of the image itself being built on a set. The light shines the brightest on the girl, drawing the eyes immediately to her when first viewing photograph.
The picture also in a deep depth of field to include the appearance of every detail.
The photograph gives off a theatrical vibe, where everything is more exaggerated to send a message. It is as if we are seeing a glimpse of a scene in a play. The whole scenario seems set up/staged and doesn't appear as a spontaneous image in the midst of someone's life.
I appreciate the effort and the effect that the photograph gives, however I don't find myself enjoying the picture.It reminds me too much of a stereotypical teenage girl in hollywood film. The set up, however may be intentional, seems too overtop and cliche to me and the photographs doesn't resonate with me.
This image shows a teenage girl looking into a mirror that reflects back into a mirror. We see bunk beds through the second mirror. There is also a third mirror showing the side view of her face and bust. Throughout the picture we see the color pink recurring in the girl's beauty products, her walls, and the towel wrapped around her head. The colors in this darker in the corners, however the pink color livens it up.
The image is perfectly exposed and all he colors look the way they are supposed to. The whole image is in focus and also doesn't have much pixilation. The rule of thirds is being used because we see that the focal point in the photo is in the right intersection and the other mirrors and drawer are to the left of her. This photographed is not completely pleasing to look at because of the expression on the teenagers face and the amount of pink. he depth of field is wide in the image which shows all of the details on the other mirrors.
The girls body is being framed within some of the mirrors, however the whole photo isn't framed. The lines, being the cracks in the wall and the lines in the wall, direct your attention to the main mirror which shows the full body picture of the girl. The image is not symmetrical but is balanced due to the different objects around the image. The subject does not fill the frame.
This image portrays the different ways one can see themselves and highlights the fact that changing ones appearance can also affect the way you see yourself. In my opinion this photograph particularly speaks to teenagers and how they see themselves with and without altering their appearance. It reminds me of todays society because no one ever sees themselves as beautiful alone. They must dress themselves up in order to reach societies expectations. This image is very appealing to me because it shows me that one can see themselves in many different ways, not just the way society sees them.
I do like this photograph, but not for the way it looks. It shows me the different ways I can view myself in certain scenarios. I believe this photo is less successful then others because while is has a deep underlying message, it is not completely pleasing to the eye. However, it does apply to many people of all ages and ethnicities.
This picture is of a girl that loves the color pink. Her head, walls, and makeup are all pink. She is very self conscious about herself because she has so many mirrors and a lot of makeup. She is also contemplating her looks via mirror. The photo is asymmetrical.
The photo is very dark in some places. There is negative space in this photo. The photo has a deep depth of field. The photo has a lot of shadows. This photo is partially underexposed. The dark corners lead your attention towards the center of the photo.
The resolution overall is not bad although there is some pixelation. It is not necessarily "pleasing" to look at but rather intriguing. The rule of thirds is being used in this photo. The photo is in a way framed due to the shadows. The lines direct your attention to the center of the photo.
The artist made this photo in order to show people that there is no need to be self conscious about yourself. The image makes me think of someone that is bullied or just not happy with the way she presents herself and wants to change. I like this photo because it gets its point across easily and is straight forward. The photo is successful because there is not a ton of room for interpretation. The photo could also be viewed as unsuccessful if your definition of a successful photograph leaves room for interpretation.
In the photography a girl in her bedroom can be seen. She seems to be trying to watch herself from different perspectives using three mirrors. The room has a variety of warm colors, but is mostly painted pink. I think this must be because it is the girl's bedroom. I believe this picture was set up in due to the specific lightning. Still, this perfectly set light is set on the girl's uneasy face. I think this image is about a girl being self-conscious about her image. All of the positions of the mirrors, represent the girl's wishes to see how people around her actually look at her. The ultimate reason for this, is that the poor girl doesn't feel confortable in her own skin. She wishes to improve herself as much as possible. In my opinion, this image is extremely relatable, due to the fact that I am basically what is being portrayed; an insecure high school girl.
The picture is well exposed, and has a deep depth of field, showing its great resolution. This has a 3rd person point of view, and even with the mirrors around the picture, I still cannot find any trace of a camera lens or photographer. The picture seems to cut off a window, which in my opinion leaves a sense of mystery in the picture. It leaves me wondering whether it is night or day, or whether someone might be watching. Even though I like the picture, it isn't completely pleasing to look at it because of the photograph's similarity to my own image.
