Photographic Map Project

Photo on 3-12-15 at 9.06 am



The places that I chose for my project were the field, my living room, the dragons back mountain view, and a segment of the second floor of HKIS. I chose the field because it was the place where my friends and I could play around and practice our sports for fun. Also it was a place where I can just do what ever I want. I chose my living room because it’s where I do mostly everything at home. Homework, watching TV, hanging out with friends, etcetera. I chose the dragons back mountain view because I thought that it was a nice view and range of HKIS’s surroundings. I chose the one segment of HKIS because it’s where I hang out and where I talk to my friends at school.

Over the time photographing the places, I realized how different they were when I payed attention. Each of the places seemed more peaceful, not just because there weren’t crowds of people, but also because I saw how they resembled a part of me. How one of each location represented a certain trait of mine, such as friendhip, or competetiveness.

I thought that for me to creative, and for my map to work, I needed to put the map in a puzzle like format. If I put it in a collage, the photos wouldn’t seem right by being mixed all around. When you keep it as a ceratin map thats planned out, you can have space thats just right for the photos.

I put the map together by trying to make it realistic as possible. The way that I started off was by taking photos of the skyline and mountain range and then placing outdoor photos ontop. Then putting indoor photos at the bottom. Trying to keep the photos as realistically matched as possible. Therefore, keeping the photos closely matched by location as well. Having the field matched with the dragons back and the school underneath the field, keeping them close in venue.

Summative Photograph #3




I applied the rule of diagnol lines in my photo and also added the rule of depth and perspective. You can see several lines all leading to the figure jumping in the photo.

I wanted the photo to seem active because of the figure jumping in an excited manner. The image is about the figure jumping for joy. He jumps for excitment from the bridge because he is told to jump with happiness to make the photo. Trying to make the photo give a joyful and action filled photo.

I think the three most important things in shooting an action photo is to have a moving figure that has a certain emotion to the photo. Also, the photo should have the focus mainly on the figure doing the action and making the audience give their focus to the action. The last component is that the photo should have mixed compositional rules to add more definition to the photo.

From the images evidence, I can seee that the photo is somewhat blurred from a man running, or hopping at a fast pace. Also, the image is an abstract action photo; bringing out the many descriptions in the photo.


The Real Story: The photo was taken by a photographer named Cartier Brensson. He named the image was  Derriere La Gare Saint-Lazarare. The photo was posted on time magazines cover. Being named the photo of the centurey.


Unit 3: Photography Task 2

The photo looks like shapes bundled together, in black and white.

However, if you look at the photo at different angles, the shapes blend

to make a city like format. The shapes can be put together to make

buildings, blending into eachother.


Real Story: The photo is named, Window View From Le Gras.

Taken by Nicéphore Niépce in 1826, and is the oldestliving photograph

in the world. The photo was a window view of the city of Le Gras, France.



Summative Photo Task #1

Rule of  vertical lines




The photo represents the rule of vertical lines because of the linings. The lines can be seen among the walls, the stairway, and even the target of the photo.  The rule of vertical lines is supposed ot represent the vertical scene of the photo. For example, if there is a city with plenty of buildings, then the lines bring out the composition of the photo. Also, their are  rules of horizontal lines represented on the stair wells.

Photo Interpretation

Screen Shot 2015-10-19 at 4.19.02 pm

The photo is an image of a girl that looks middle eastern. She is staring into the camera thinking of something. She wears a red scarf with a green under dress. She looks unpleased or angered of something.

Real story

Image was taken and was placed on the front cover of National Geographic. The girl and her family escaped Afghanistan to seek refuge in Pakistan. The family had to cross the border and find a new life, away from the wars in Afghanistan. Then they were found by the photographer at the refuge camp, taking a picture of the girl.



Still Life Drawing Reflection

Still life drawing.



I feel that the skull is some what accurate compared to the real object, but the hand seems to be less real. I think that its form is off compared to the real hand.

To me drawing feels like something I can do when I want to record something, or to have fun and enjoy trying to substitue another object from the 3d world, onto paper. So, I would say that drawing, to me, is important because of how it allows us to record an image, without losing the placing of the object.

I would say to someone that says, “I can’t draw.” that at first you might not be able to draw, but if you work hard enough to make your drawing skills better than eventualy you will be able to draw. Anyone can draw, even if they say they can’t.
