frame Shape: my intent was to make this image look more pronounced. i wanted it to lead through the picture and have create the fun memory of the good old days. when school was canceled and every one would go out side and play in the snow and make snow men or poorly crafted snow forts for the long battles with snow balls and other attacks.
Horizon: the picture turned out to yellow it didn’t really look this bright but i like it better this way. it is what it is, the image that make people ponder. i think it serves its purpose very well. when people go driving they tend to look out the window and what do they do well staring out into the vast open space they think, about life, their plans, their day, about what ever they want. and thats what i wanted this picture to do i want it to give tits viewers of a sense of “today”. when i look at is thats what i see, like wow this makes my day kind of feeling.
filling Frame: i took this shot at star bucks in target, i enjoy how it is able to make your eyes move around the picture. the vibrant colors keep me interested and then all the lines leading from one part of the frame to another keep me on my toes. the circles are a nice touch to the image. i want the viewers of tis to get lost in the lines and the curves.
Framing Dynamics: i wanted this picture to feel overpowering in a way. its of a small church in rural winona, just creating the feel of being over powered by sometime is intense. And I used a church because some children have religion shoved down their little throats. i am NOT saying thats bad i was one of those kids i went to a catholic school and i turned out AWESOME. but by creating this emotion i think i could get allot of reactions. yes the images is in black and white but if it where in color it would look less “pulling” if you can understand what i am getting at. i want that pull i want those reactions of why a church and why not some giant corporate office building. my answer is because every one can relate to some kind of religion and i am associated with this one. (my own personal views)
(the church is quite lovely)
placement: i was walking around looking for something to use for this shot, when i stumbled upon some red bull cans in the snow. of course i though ” oh how rude litters” but then i took advantage of how it looked, it kinda leaves a message like don’t litter of this could even become a red bull ad (haha) i had brush some snow off the other can just so i you have it more visible in this shot. i wanted the cans to be visible and i really like how you can tell they are Red bull but you can red the labels.
i think i did an excellent job on this image. Its defiantly one of my favorites. My goal was to get a picture of “dividing the frame” which is splitting the frame of your image up into different objects. I used these lamp posts i had to kneel really far down on the ground just so i could line them up this way. when i was taking this picture i wanted it to lead your eye front the right to the left, i think my picture would have looked better it i have more depth in it.
This is my frame with in a frame shot. i was walking around the rural part of town and final found this tire swing again. the two boards in front and from the picket fence that surrounded the yard. My intent was to change the point of view and at the same time create the frames. I think i was successful. i am still new to my camera so i was not able to blur both the foreground and the background and i honestly find the red lights in the house to the left of the swing a bit distracting. I could have cropped some of the tree out at the top but i left it. Yet i really like this shot better then some of my others.
