Screen Shot 2014-02-05 at 3.10.52 PM

Go to the New York Times Photoblog, February 5th, 2014, and describe the image that comes up in three individual sentences using photographic compositional terms. Take time to look at the image and images from the series. What do you see?

For example;
  • Speak about the camera angle, lens choice, background, the props and lighting.
  • Does the image follow the rule of thirds (explain)?
  • Describe the compositional elements; shape / form, line, space, value, texture and color within the image.
  • Describe the compositional principles; emphasis, balance, unity, contrast, movement / rhythm and pattern / repetition within the images.

  1. This image follows the rule of thirds due to the subject falling on one of the focal points. There is emphasize on the man since he is in a green uniform. This image is taken from a bird’s eye view since the camera is located higher than the subject

  2. The image above follows the rule of thirds because the main point of the image is on one of the focal points.

  9. This image is taken from a higher angle.I think the image also has some texture like in the hay the man is laying on and on the rhinos skin.This image also follows the rule of thirds because the man and rhino are off center.

  10. The angle of the image seems to be from a high angle, its looking down of him and the rhino. The Image has a shallow depth of field, bit of a blur around the rhino in the corner of the image. It also has high contrast, it has high whites and high blacks in the image.

  11. This image has high contrast, shot from a high angle, it follows the rule of thirds, the colors share the tones and thee is no repetition. There are some lines, very little empty space and no movement.

  12. The image shows a great deal of contrast. The angle is shot from a high area taking the picture down ward, and from this angle makes the image look a bit smaller. Shooting it from a low angle would make it seem larger and give the picture a sign of confidence. The depth is high. The picture would most likely make someone sad or curious as to why the rhinos are there and why the man is guarding it,and why. Its a great picture

  13. There is emphasis on the man boy sleeping on the rhino using a higher contrast between the light that’s on the two subjects and the background.

  18. This image follows the rule of third because the subject is off center. The main emphasis in this picture is the person who is lying down on the rhino and we can the emotions on the man. We can also see that this image is being shot from a high angle since it demonstrates the facial expression on the man. There is repetition on this image due to the hay and the rhinos.

  19. The image follows the rule of thirds since the main focus isn’t in the middle. The camera angle is taken from a higher elevated view. The man is emphasized since he is wearing green which is a complete different color than the rest of the colors of this image.

  21. This image is taken at a high angle since the man and the rhino are not exactly in the center. Attention is focused on the further back which is where the man and the rhino are there. And the only thing that differs from the rest of the image would be the man due to his green clothing.
