This image documents a story of a day on the set in a mediocre film. Therefore, it is a story telling image. The boy in the stripped shirt is the focus, and is framed by the door. The diagonal lines of the stairs and the boom microphone in addition to the pattern of stripes on his shirt draw the eye here. There is contrast in the orange door and the other neutral shades, and where he is so close, he stands out with it. There are equal amounts of negative and positive spaces, so balance is achieved. The background depicts a school setting.
This image also tells a story. The tea is framed by the two people, and those three aspects are the focus. The diagonal lines in the tea depict movement, and the lines in the background add depth. There is contrast in the shadows and highlights, and the symmetry of the bodies and the layout creates balance. The frame is cropped effectively though there is not much helping the background, which is a bit cluttered but adds to the homey feel of this image.
The Rule of Thirds is used in the opposite way as most of the image is filled with the cat, though her face - the focus - is more to one side. The opposition is effective as the pattern of her fur creates a texture, which adds depth to a two dimensional image. The diagonal lines seen on the animal’s whiskers lead to her face, which as previously mentioned, is the focus. There is contrast between the green of her eye and the rather saturated tones of the rest of the image, and also between light and dark shades, which creates a sense of balance as the two are equal. There isn’t much of a background, with how the image is cropped.
This is a portrait of an animal.
This is a long-exposure image. The flame, which is the focus, is framed by darkness. The lines of the fingers add to this. The contrast between light and dark is quite clear - the light source is the only thing aflame, besides the vague outline of the hand. With this contrast, balance is created, as the amount of light and dark is relatively even. This is done with cropping; only a bit of a band surrounds the focus. The pattern of lines in the skin adds texture to the image, and depth as it throws shadows from the light.
This is a text image. The focus [the word “inspired”] is to the right, as per the Rule of Thirds. It is framed by the pattern of dark diagonal lines created by the bracelets. The contrast between light and dark is all through the image. The background is cropped to show only that the item is a bracelet, and no other details. Balance is created with the amount of focused and unfocused elements, and the shadows and highlights. The word is at an angle, and that perspective adds depth.
This is a text image from the novel, The Hunger Games. The focus [‘She’s a survivor, that one.’] starts in the lower left hand corner, so the Rule of Thirds is somewhat applicable. The frame adds a sense of order to the image, and that’s why it’s included. Through the use of perspective, the page is at an angle; the diagonal lines lead the eye of the audience in the direction of the words. There is high contrast between the only two shades present; black, and white. With the repeating patterns of lines with equal distancing and equal amounts of the aforementioned shades, a feeling of balance is created. The background is effective and features other blurred lines. Nothing here needs to be cropped.
Rule of Thirds is seen in each cell, on Ashlynn - who is the focus of the story. The frame separates the images and adds to the feel and progression. There are repeating though unintentional diagonal lines in the background that subtly draw the eye to her stark black attire against the grayish background, which creates effective contrast. The balance of light and dark also creates balance, as does the equal amount of positive and negative space. The picture is cropped effectively for this purpose. The perspective is from below, which adds a new depth to the image.
This is a story-telling black and white image.
There is a slight use of the Rule of Thirds as the “globe” (the focus) is off center laterally and horizontally. It is framed by the hand, whose fingers create diagonal lines leading to it. There is heavy contrast between shadow and highlight, and this creates balance. The frame is effectively filled, and there isn’t much for a background. The perspective is from the heal of the hand and on an angle, instead of just on top. The swirling pattern of the world draws the eye.
Photoshopped black & white image, derived from combining various effects and the following images :
The Rule of Thirds is clearly visible in this photograph as the subject is off to the right. As it is a soft focus photo, the background is utterly blurred and puts the focus on the subject, and nothing else. The line of the ribbon draws the eye. The contrast between light and dark is prominent all through the image. Balance is achieved as an equal amounts of the image are blurred and sharp. There are no unnecessary details in the frame. Perspective is created Ashlynn is on a slight angle, and this adds depth to the image.
