Leading Lines

Image
After watching the video, I learned how to position the camera for good leading lines that drew attention to the viewer. I put my camera low to the ground in a wood floor room to make sure I could get the lines in the picture. Personally, I think the basketball picture came out the best, but I also like the one of my cat on the floor. I think the reason it worked best is because I made sure my camera lined up with the hardwood lines. After taking these pictures, I edited them by drawing in the leading lines that I thought drew attention to the item.

Rule of Thirds

After reading the article on the Rule of Thirds, I used the technique to take these pictures. The first picture is my grandma's dog, Phoebe, and the second is my cat, Mickey. In the first image, I put my phone in landscape position and pictured a grid on the screen so I could align her on a point on the grid toward the left, while still getting her favorite toys in the picture. In the second, my phone was in portrait position, but I pictured the grid still, and tried to position him toward the left side of the "grid" on a point. I thought the first picture came out better, though the lighting is a bit dark, but the second picture has good light. I preferred the landscape picture because I can picture the grid better and position the subject of the photo better on it.

POV

I thought these angles came out the best. The first one is from waist level, the second is from inside the vase, and the third is from eye level. I took multiple pictures of different objects, such as a basketball and of my cat. I chose these pictures because I thought they turned out the best, in contrast/color and from POV (Plus my cat kept moving). I really liked the picture from inside the vase because it is a perspective that you don't see often. The flowers were very colorful and would draw attention more than a simple basketball or a cat, another reason why I chose these to photograph.
