Photography: Pics from Week 2

Two photography classes down, eight more to go. Demarchelier, watch out! This week’s lesson was about the elements of composition: pattern, perspective, and scale.

Diminishing scale. See how the telephone poles appear to be getting smaller and smaller?

Linear perspective. The shadows from the railing seem to converge in the distance, giving the photo depth.

Frame within a frame. The reflection in the glass in this little lending library on my street gives the photo depth and visual interest. It also became an inadvertent self portrait!

We had to take a picture of something with a pattern to it. I thought the leaves of this grate were pretty interesting.

I love the pattern the shadow of this railing makes on the stairs.

Here is the same set of stairs, from the opposite direction. The shadows lead you right to the green door.

I’m curious. What makes a photograph interesting to you? What makes you pause and study it, rather than just turn the page, or move on the next picture? Let’s talk eye-catching photos in the comments!

This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’m thinking I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Wish me luck!

    I want the photo to make my eyes move into it.. and keep busy “seeing” the image.
