This week I was faced with the task of putting my newly acquired photography skills to the test. I didn't realize the importance of lighting and composition until I learned more about them. I never imagined I would be able to take photos with such great quality while only using an iPad.
As you scroll through this post you will find how each perspective can tell a different story.
Framing: I'm not going to lie, the framing picture was the hardest to execute. Trying to find the perfect subject with the perfect framing was not easy. Luckily that was all solved when I found this awesome flower and bush. The leaves act as a great frame, and still allow the flower to stand out and remain the focus.
Leading Lines: The moment I saw this interesting alley and staircase I knew it had to be used for my leading lines. I am so thankful that my mom was willing to be my subject for this one. To me this seemed like the perfect opportunity for a leading lines photo because of all the different lines that come together and draw your eye to my lovely subject. From the lines of the stairs, to the brick wall, and even how the paint draws a line, it all leads you right where I want the eye to go.
Perspective: In this shot, it really shows how a different perspective can change the whole feel of a picture. This is the same glass of beer used in the close up picture, but they are both so unique. The presence of the foam on top gives off a mysterious feel. You find yourself questioning what coulld be lying below this foam.
The best kind of school assignments are ones that leave you with skills that can be useful in every day life. Thanks to Kellie Stanfield I will never again post an awful Instagram picture.
