Leading Lines

I did the assignment for leading lines and used two pictures demonstrate the leading lines effect to make a picture more interesting. This effect causes the viewer's eyes to be lead into what the subject of the image is. In my first picture, I used my own arm petting my dog to lead into the dog which is the focal point of the picture. The other image I used was the return of my wooden duck with a lanyard leading into the picture. I chose the lanyard because it intentionally looked unnatural but still managed to grasp the curiosity

of the viewer and lead the eyes to the duck.

Rule of Thirds

            I took two pictures demonstrating the rule of thirds by capturing an image in a third of the screen to cause more interest and dynamic than if a picture was taken straight on. The two pictures I took both put the object in the left third of the picture showing the environment to the right side. I think the images came out good in terms of the quality and understanding of the rule of thirds. If I could do something differently I would have filled the background with something more interesting and visually appealing rather than just the plain background that I put in the pictures.

Point of View

Point of View

             For this lesson on the point of view, the picture I chose was of a wooden duck. I chose this wood duck because it has been in my family for a long time and has always been interesting to me. The duck was handcrafted by a woman in Florida as an art piece, which means it can continue its legacy of art by helping me create art for this project. I chose the first of the three images because it was a straightforward look at the duck and it is comparable to the others. The second picture I took was a bird's eye view, I chose this because there are not many objects that can be view directly downward like this duck. The third and final image is upward because it is a naturally small object that a person would not usually look up to.
