PHOTO ASSIGNMENT Nº1

The purpose of this assignment was to practice composition techniques such as Rule of Thirds, Framing, Leading Lines, Balance, Patterns, Textures, Spot Coloring, Contrasting/Harmonious Colors, Silhouette, Negative Space, Birdseye View, and Worms Eye View.

These photos are from a collection taken during class time on campus, and also a few pictures from a mini shoot in Carlsbad. Some of my favorite photos from this assignment would be those in the framing, texture, contrasting & harmonious colors, negative space, and worms eye view. Typically I am drawn to the scenes with more simple details and I feel I tend to shoot in a predictable range of angles and distances. Techniques such as texture compelled me to move closer to my subjects, and others such as negative space forced me to take a step back and look at the scene from the “outside, in”.

Looking at objects from a different perspective was a challenge for me in some of the composition categories. However, it forced me to step out of my comfort zone and away from the view finder so I could challenge my normal shooting habits. I feel like this assignment helped remind me of the range of perspectives I have to play with and allowed me to revisit some techniques I had forgotten about. Overall, I am pleased with the turnout of the photos and I am happy this assignment ignited some creative habits I hope to progress.
