Point of View

This is a close up picture using the macro lens. The macro lens allows you to get really close to the subject and still be able to focus. This picture of dead flowers embodies the feeling sorrow and loss.

This is a weird angle picture and was also taken using the macro lens. Notice how you can see the inside of the usb port. This picture reveals the usb port that is under the keyboard.

This is a low perspective picture. As you can see the girl is directly under the camera as she uses her camera. This angle makes the photo very unique.

This is a high perspective photo. Although it was a bit far from the camera, I went on my tip toes and used the macro lens for more focus. This picture shows how the clocks in the school aren't accurate. This photo was not taken at the time read on the clock.

This is another close up using the macro lens. With the lens, I was able to get the rust in detail and the little rubber pebbles from the turf.

Interrupted Paterns

Interrupted Patterns are usually used to focus on the subject. Because of it's differet from the background pattern around it, the viewer's eyes are drawn to the picture

In this picture the subject shows uniqueness among the rest of the picture. It's bright color it gets the attention of the viewer.

In this picture the name of the brown book are brought out because of the dull surroundings.

Contrast Photography

I took this picture to show the contrast between skin colors. The skin on the left, being darker than the one on the right, pops out because of this characteristic

Leading Lines

I prefer the first photo than the other one just because it looks better aesthetically and has more meaning. In the first picture the pencils lead you to the computer which has math related wallpaper. This gives the picture a school life theme.

Rule of Thirds

This photo was taken using the Rule of Thirds. Notice how it is in the far left third. The reason why this is a good photo is because of the background, lighting, and subject. The background of the photo is blurred out and popping with vibrant colors. On top of that the subject is an interesting one for it is characterized with a soft delicate body. This pops out to the viewer giving them a sense of beauty.

This one was also taken using the Rule of Thirds. Everything in the photo is okay except for the lighting. Unlike the picture above the light is a bit darker and dull. Also the subject isn't as interesting as the previous one.

This photo was taken using the self timing feature. On top of that I used a tripod to raise the camera so that the picture could be taken at this angle. This setup is ideal for times when you yourself want to be in the picture like at a wedding or party.

The tripod can be used to take pictures from places you can't reach. In this photo the tripod is under the bleachers. You can do this in places like high shelfs, from inside a locker, etc.

This was a successful trial in framing. I took this photo through a space made by stacks of books. The photo has an interesting subject that really stands out. 

This was also a successful trial at framing. I took it through a tire on a field. The only problem with the photo is that the subject isn't as interesting as the picture above. Otherwise the photo is fine.

Background Check

This post will include three photos in which I tested the backgrounds. I used portrait mode to make the subject stand out more. I will order them from best to worst according to the background.

This picture has a perfect background, The blurriness is very strong and there are no intrusive objects straying the viewer away from the subject.

This photo is also good however, the reason it wasn't perfect was because I was too far from the subject. This caused the blurriness to be weak.

On the other hand this picture is the opposite of the previous one. The subject is focused on because the blurriness is strong. The only problem with this is the picture of the man looking at us. I did't notice it at first but it diverted my attention from the attention because it was so out of the ordinary.

Depth of Field

Can you make out all the words on the plaque? Probably not. The reason for this is because I took this picture in portrait mode. What portrait mode does is that it makes the subject stand out by making the background blurry. The reason why I chose this background is because it showed the blurriness easily.

Now look at this one. As you can see the words on the plaque are clearly visible and easier to read. The reason for this is because instead of portrait mode, I used landscape mode. Landscape mode captures the sharpness of the subject as well as the background.

Portrait Photography

In order to achieve the blurriness of the background, I turned the mode dial of my camera to portrait mode. Notice how the photograph has a shallow depth of field allowing the subject to be in greater focus.
