Where to Place Your Subject</p> <p>The Rule of Thirds tells us to place main elements where the lines intersect, so where the red dots are. Those red dots are referred to as power points.</p> <p>Now, in 10 minutes and using the area around the student center..</p> <p>-Take atleast 1 photo using the RULE OF THIRDS!</p> <p>-Save the photo in IPHOTO and label Rule of Thirds. I will come around and check this during class today!#2 HorizonWhere the earth meets the sky.Use rule of thirds for placing the horizon.</p> <p>Theres something about a horizontal line in an image that conveys a message of stability or even rest.</p> <p>Keep your Horizontal lines horizontal and square with the edges of your images frame. </p> <p>The horizon line is centered in this photograph, breaking the image into 2 distinct halves.</p> <p>Moving the horizon line, isolates and places more emphasis on the rock.Horizon lines- man made</p> <p>Now, in 10 minutes and using the area around the grotto..BE very quiet</p> <p>-Take atleast 1 photo establishing a horizon line.</p> <p>-Save the photo in IPHOTO and label Rule of Thirds.

Save your photo in GROUP R- Digital Photography-Nelson-NAME YOUR FILE:last namefirstinitial _focalpoint_08_23_12.jpg#5: Filling the Frame The subject takes up the whole image area</p> <p>Still think about the negative space!</p> <p>People: This technique is particularly important when taking pictures of people whose facial features tend to disappear when you move more than a few meters away from them</p> <p>But, still remember the rule of thirds!</p> <p>Its not always about Macro Photos though!</p> <p>Take the subject and make it the most important part!Save as: bnelson_fill_09_12_12.jpg</p> <p>#6 Perspective/Point of View * Change the angle between the camera and the subject.</p> <p>#7 FramingUsing elements in the photograph to create a border around the subject, thus focusing attention to it.</p> <p>#8 Leading Line* A line that directs your eye from foreground to background, often directly to the subject.Leading Line includes:Horizontal line - side to sideVertical line - up and downDiagonal line - corner to corner</p> <p>Remember to check lines in the picture to see if they work for your composition.Ask yourself, where do the lines in the picture move your eye?</p> <p># 9: S-CurveS-curve is soothing Look for winding roads or rivers or even a tree branch.</p> <p>#10: Formwhen an object appear 3 dimensional, as though you could move around it</p> <p>#11: Texture when an object looks as though you could actually feel the surface such as rough, smooth, soft</p> <p>#12: Pattern/Shapeshape appears 2 dimensional, flat. Pattern is the repetition of shape.</p> <p>#13: Color*When color is the main purpose of the photo. Bright colors are used.</p>
