Basic Photography Training #4
– Part 4 of my previous message about my assignments on a photography school located in Boxtel, the Netherlands –
This chapter was about lenses and composition.
The assignmets were:
– a closed frame photo
– an open frame photo
– a symmetry photo
– an asymmetry photo
– a photo with a zoomlens
– a photo with a wide angle lens
The term “open frame photo” means that you take a photo of an object, but show just a small part of the object. (by zooming in)
This way the viewer needs to imagine how the rest of the object looks.
The term “closed frame photo” means that you photograph the entire object.
The symmetry and asymmetry photo’s. Location: Tilburg train station.
The wide angle lens and zoomles photo’s.
I had to make one photo with each lens to show the difference.
With a wide angle lens you can see a lot of depth in the photo and with a zoomlens it looks like there is no depth at all. Location: Tilburg city centre.
Wat leuk om al die verschillende technieken in de praktijk toegepast te zien.
Dank je! Fijne vakantie gehad? Groetjes Esmee
Ja we hebben een leuke en afwisselende vakantie gehad,
zowel wat betreft weer als dingen die we hebben gezien en gedaan.
Jammer dat we jou zondag a.s. niet kunnen zien, wanneer we naar Tilburg komen.
Je bent kamperen hoorde ik van je moeder.
Veel plezier en ik hoop dat het zonnetje zich regelmatig laat zien..
I really like your mono roof picture – if you were to push it a little further I think you could get some really clever abstract images out of it. Just a thought 🙂
Hi Noeline, thanks! On what way push it furter? More contrast of cropping the photo? 😀
More by concentrating on the roof itself and cropping it tighter. Personally I like a square crop (possibly too much!) and I think it could work well here. I think the combination of lines/shapes/black/white is great – forget it’s a roof and try rotating it as well – it’s amazing how using an ‘unnatural’ viewpoint can really enhance an abstract.
