My subjects in most of these photos are me, however I usually hate having myself in the photos so for a good majority of them you cannot really see my face or it is more of a scenic picture. I guess some major characters would be me, my notebook, and the cat and a minor character would be my mom. In my photos it is building up to the solution of my problem. I wake up and go through my reguler day schedule however I encounter a cat and try to help it, however when I go back later it is gone. Some objects that are in my story that help tell the story is the cat. However, all these photos are unique so I cannot really say there is a single object in all of these photoes that helps transition each shot. Also, my story takes place on a rainy day which is evident with the gloomy skies and it takes place on Sunday which you could not figure out unless I told you. The age and size of the subject is not really important because it does not change anything about the story. I guess the location of the story is somewhat meaningful to me because it is my neighborhood and some of the pictures are inside my house. Shooting the location also strengthens the story because it makes the viewer have a better understanding of who I am and the current problem. My subjects are interacting with each other by smiling or making eye contact with one another. I guess the story makes the viewer feel sad because most of the build up to this story has been me preparing to meet this stray cat that I saw in the morning but when I go back when it really starts to pour to give food, it has disappeared. I am also documenting this story in the hopes to raise awareness about abandoning ones pet and also in order to help others get a better glimpse into my life.
Moreover, a central theme that my story is that we all have a responsibility to our community, and I decided to format my story as a blog. We can see my central theme because when I wake up I am sheltered and feel very awake, but as I look outside I see the crashing rain. I usually go outside each morning for a walk to clear my head which is what I did and on my walk I stumbled upon a stray cat. Because of the responsibility that I had I thought that maybe I needed to help this cat by providing it food. This can be seen by my contemplation in picture 9. Another theme that I think my story provides is getting over a situation quickly. We can see through all these photos that even though my whole entire day was based on helping this cat but the cat disappeared, I was still able to get over it. Moreover, I provided a good exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. I guess you are introduced to me as a person in the first three photographers, and the rising action would be me preparing to give the cat food. Even-though my falling action and resolution are similer because I just get over the fact that the cat wasn't there I still think I did a good job portraying an interesting story. . Overall, I feel like each viewer may get their own interpretation of the meaning of my story.
Rule or Thirds
Something I like about this photo is the atmosphere. I think I got a really good photo on a dark day and it somewhat shows the feeling of sadness. Something I dislike about this photo is the quality, it looks really blurry.
Converging parallel lines
Something I like about this photo is the feeling of how far the photo goes. It looks like the photo has a lot of depth and I also like that it is sunset which makes this photo very nice. Something that was challenging was finding the converging parallel line photo which was very hard. It was hard to find a place around my neighborhood that showed a converging parallel line.
I really like how I got the photo. I got the horizontal line and to me it brings a somewhat calming feel. Something that I would like to improve next time I take the photo is that I would want to get a better angle on the horizontal line.
For this photo I think I did a really good job conveying movement. Looking at this for a long time can make you feel dizzy and I think I did a really good job with this photo. Something I dislike about this photo is the lighting.
For this photo I really think I did a good job getting a strong vertical line. The vertical line looks great, but one thing that I dislike about the photo is the centering. I think I could have done a somewhat good job but could do a little better.
I like how the curved lines look very graceful. Another thing that I like is that the photo looks very clear. I used a different camera and it looks very nice.
For this assignment we were asked to take a picture of someone without their knowledge in a man made or natural frame. Something I like about this photo is how good the positioning is. I used the rule of thirds and feel like I got a really good photo because of it. Something I do not like about this photo is that it looked really dark and the most difficult part of this challenge was getting someone to allow me to use their photo after I took a picture without their knowledge. Finally, I asked someone if I could use their photo and they agreed.
Something I like about this photo is that I got pretty good lighting. Even though I did not use the rule of thirds for this photo I feel like it came out pretty good. Even though I face is not showing, the person was fully aware that I was taking the photo. Most people do not like having their face shown including me which is why there is a hood covering their face. Something that I would like to improve on this photo for next time is not having the background interfere with my photo. I feel like too much is going on causing you to lose focus from your subject.
What were you asked to do?
I was asked to take three different pictures using different angles to show how the perspective effects the photos.
Why is it important to do this
It was important to do this so that we can see how different perspectives effect photos. We may not think that it actually effects photos, but the perspective does and it shows us that the smallest things effect photoes
What event/situation/subject did you decide to photograph and why
I chose to photograph my Couch because it is where I sit almost everyday. I watch the news in the morning and sometimes sleep on the couch so I thought that I should photograph something somewhat meaningful
How did you approach the challenge? What was difficult or enjoyable?
I approach this challenge with an open mind and ready to capture something intersting. I captured pictures of squirrels and the nature scenery but then I decided I wanted to photograph something important to me.
This photo holds a deep connection with me because it represents something far greater than just a simple subject standing on a rock. The subject is mainly me, but you could say that some minor subjects could be the rock, trees, water, and pond. In this photo I am posing on a rock as I look into the morning sunlight and see the reflection of the two buildings in front of me. It took almost 30 minutes walking from the hotel to Central Park to catch the glimpse of the early morning sunshine however it was all worth it as I was able to think back to a past time when I enjoyed the ducks and the swans swimming the water. It was a breezy morning which is why I was wearing a heavy jacket, and their were birds of many kinds around me such as pigeons and bluejays, and I was able to listen to the sound of their chirps. This photo was taken a week ago and even-though it is recent, it reminds of a few years ago when I was also at Central Park enjoying this view from the bench. I used to come to this location all the time when I was living in NYC and so this place holds some meaning to me. The reason why I was documenting myself standing on a rock is because I did that same pose three years ago and looking back it shows my growth. When you look at this photo, it fills you with a sense of calmness watching the tiny waves in the pond and the bright sunshine. The subject which is me is interacting with the water and it looks almost as if I am about to jump in. Overall, this photo shows that we can each find calmness in our own places that our unique to us.
This photo is a "Wide angle shot" and it is so impactful to me because the wide angle shows us how far police are willing to go in order to stop the protests and how persistent the people are to protest and show what they believe. This was known as the (Umbrella protest). There have been constant protests in Hong and slowly it has started elevating. Even recently, a journalist has been blinded in the eye with a rubber bullet as well as a young women in hong kong. This is so impactful to me because it captures the full scenery of the current situation in Hong Kong and shows how far police and people are willing to go in order to get their way. There was once a saying that said "Wherever there is a will there is a way," and this photo is amazing because it captures two different sides of the protests, civilians on the left, protestors and police on the right, and police infront and the people in the back. (Photo by Wally Satana)
I think this photo is so impactful because it shows the seriousness of the protest and how dire the situation is. Everyone is preparing to wear almost, toxic suits in order to survive the tear gas being thrown by the police. We can see everyone with blank emotion and the photographer did a great job of having good lighting to show the grave situation and the emotions on the people faces. Also the photographer did a great job incorporating negative space in his photos. (Close Up, and this photo was taken by Chris Mcgraph)
I think this photo is impactful because it shows how foreigners are effected by the protest in Hong Kong. This is a great example of how tourism is being ruined because of the police brutality and the protest. As for the picture, the photographer used rule of thirds for the guy taking a picture with his phone and did a great job making each person stand out in the picture.
