I’ve always wanted to make a necklace of my own, and the rings were the first idea that came into my head. So I decided to make the necklace out of circles, and then give some points from ring to ring to make it look not so simple.

I had a hard time thinking of how to make a crown. The cardboard wouldn’t bend easily, so I cut many triangles and tried to make it into a circle.

This is my map for my walk. I decided to walk straight from my dormitory, and wondered where I would end up at. I started to walk with my music on, and I ended up at Chelsea when I walked straight

I took pictures focusing on things I couldn’t see in my neighborhood and places that were colorful. But since the photos had to be black and white, I couldn’t show the colors of the pictures I took.

 

Time Metropolis : 2 Articles

composition – one of the most important elements of photography

– more important than how out of focus the background is

Bokeh – lets you obsess about something insignificant, but often makes for lazy

composition

Henri Cartier-Bresson, Richard Avedon, William Eggleston, Alfred Eisenstaedt

  1. photographers not obsessed with the shallowest depth of field
  2. iconic photographers capable of iconic photographs built on the foundations of masterful compositions and superb timing

+ Not every rule of composition can work well with every scene – composition helps bring balance

abstract concepts and theories

Frame within a Frame

  • literal frame or just the edge of screen
  • help add context, meaning, or depth to photo – especially when related to subject
  • create more immediate sense of focus on subject
  • add three dimensional element to an otherwise flat scene
  • keep the exposure and focus on subject – use foreground that is darker than back

The Gestalt – Principles or Gestaltism

  • Gestalt ( shape or form ) Psychology – explain how we perceive things and organize in brain

Figure / Ground

  • most basic compositional device : constant visual simulation tend to differentiate a form from its surroundings
  • perception of figure can depend on multiple characteristics including color or contrast ex) The Vase
  • color can be used to create separation : complimentary colors

Chiaroscuro + Negative Space

  • Chiaroscuro : art of using strong contrast between light and dark
  • Negative Space : produce silhouette, drawing attention to subject, or positive space

Proximity and Grouping

Symmetry and Balance

Similarity

Continuity and Leading Lines

Closure

  • since subject isn’t completely in frame, brain will try to fill in details
