Exploration of an idea #2

Brainstorm subject matter:

Environment

City, buildings, people, signs, (anything found in a city)

Emotions

busy, crowded, lost, overwhelmed, 

Colours

Greys, browns, bright colours, (eg. on bill boards),

Textures

Rough, smooth, sharp, edgy, cracked, 

Exploring the element the elements of contrast, movement and depth of field:

Contrast:

between the rich and poor, buildings and trees, free or caged, contrasting colours (eg colourful mural next to an old grey wall),

Movement:

The movement of traffic, of people, of trains, of street performers, of animals

Depth of field

person in the foreground art work in the background, 

Exploration of an idea #1

Brainstorm subject matter:

Colours

Black and white, greys, browns, rusty,

Textures

Contrast photo #5
The photographer has used colour to create contrast. Because of the stark background and the yellow colour of the subject the sunflower stands out creating effect and isolating the sunflower from the of the dark background.
It is hard to tell but either lighting or edit has been used for this to be a contrast shot. Artificial lighting may have been used (the background is slightly lit up suggesting the sun is setting or hidden by clouds, as this is behind the subject matter the lighting on the sunflower is not natural light) to create contrast.This would have been done by the light source being directed onto the subject making the yellow colour more prominent and creating contrast to the grey/black background.
Edit may also have been used to darken the background and heighten the already yellow colour of the sunflower.

Contrast photo #6
For the photographer to create this contrast shot he/she has mixed and blended many different photographic elements/techniques. These include lighting (light source), shutter speed, edit, and diagonals.
lighting has been used to create silhouette. When taking the photo the camera lens was pointing toward the light source this creates the silhouette effect. When the light source is behind the camera it creates a clear photograph of the subject matter instead of just an outline.
A very high/fast shutter speed (approx…..) was used to capture the chiled in mid swing

Movement photo #4
The photographer has used shutter speed to give this photograph sense of movement. A very low/slow shutter speed means that the shutter was open for up to 30 seconds, this allowed the photographer to capture the moving subject (skateboarder) from the time the shutter opens to the time it closes.
Rule of thirds has also been used as the subject is in the right hand third of the photograph, leaving the blurry lines of his movement to take up the remaining 2 thirds.

Movement photo #5
To create this photograph the photographer has used a a low shutter speed. This means that the shutter stays open for a longer period of time capturing the subjects movement. Because the shutter is open for such a long duration approx 5 seconds it is very important for the lighting to be just right and for camera to be on a tripod so that an unstable hand doesn’t create more movement in the picture than wanted.
Here the photographer has used side lighting so that movement is spanned from one edge of the picture to the other. This also creates lines in the photograph and a duplicated image from when the shutter first opens to when it closes.
