Post your response directly into the blog under “Leave a Reply”.   Take time to look at the image(s).  What do you see?  How do the images make you feel? What visual threads tie the images together – what do the images share that makes the story come together?

Refer to the photographic compositional link above for ideas and accurate terms to describe the images, then choose three concepts, 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. The phyocal points are with in the frame.This image is touching the main points in the rule of thirds. The image has low depth the field & shallow depth the field.
    this image has a mute coloring.

  2. The image is out of focus. The has a shallow depth of field. The image has low contrast. There is somewhat lines that lead the eye. The image does not follow the rule of thirds because if you use powerpoints not all intersections will cross and meet the focal point.

  3. The image has high contrast. There are lines that lead the eye. The image also follows the rule of thirds because it hits the focal points.

  4. The image is outwardly blurry and shows a shallow depth of field and a low contrast, the image also doesn’t show the rule of thirds because the image doesn’t follow the regional points of the focal points. My opinion in the images criteria is very vague seeing that the image is taken in the car’s window from a distant area which seems from a grassy field.

  8. This image has shallow depth field, the image is blurred. The image also follows the rules of thirds because it touches some power points. The image also has low contrast.

  9. This image has a very shallow depth of field. It also follows the rule of thirds, because the subject is not centered directly in the center of the image. This was taken at eye level, and the image is also out of focus.

  10. The physical points are with in the frame.This image is touching the main points in the rule of thirds. The image has low depth the field & shallow depth the field.
    this image has a mute coloring.

  11. This image has a shallow depth of field because you can only see through the frame. This image follows the Rule of Thirds because the frame (one point of interest) touches all of the focal points and the people (second point of interest) is in the middle of the grid. There is high contrast because the light is really bright, and the everything else is really dark.

  14. This image has shallow depth of field. This image follows the rules of thirds. This image also has high contrast. It looks like the photographer is in the car because it has movement. I also believe the image has emphasis, because it look like I see two guys
