Photography task #2

Art room


The compositional rules that I added to the photo were the rules of diagnol lines and rule of definition.

I was trying to make the image give a calm and silent emotion. Making it give the audience a calm feeling. Looking at the image of art supplies that are used to create art work, that are used for creative materials.

Besides the image being in black and white, the arrangement of items are important. The arrangement of the items being in layers is somewhat like adding more detail to the photo. Also, the compositional lines in the photo are also important because of the outlines of the drawing. The final componant is the background. If the background is full of several moving, or non moving bojects, then it becomes hard to focus on the main idea of the photo.

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.

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.

(M)onthly(I)ndependent(B)ook(P)roject: Paper Towns- October #2

Paper Towns






The gif is supposed to represent the time when Quenten Jacobsen and his friends started their adventure, when they found this message from Margo. To me I thought that this was the very beginning of the adventure to come for the group. Starting when they found the clues in Margo’s room that led them to an abandoned mini-mall, where they then found the message, “Once you go to the paper towns, youl’l never come back.” In my opinion I was mindset that this message was what gave Quenten the motivation to find Margo, and to continue his adventure. Eventually leading him to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

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.
