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 visual elements 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.
