In my photograph, I have captured a door bolted by two padlocks, placed either end of the frame. I am happy with my photograph as I think the viewpoint is well thought about and is taken from a low angle to make it appear tall, and if someone were looking up at it. In addi;on to this, one of the subject ma=ers is out of focus, however the other subject ma=er is in focus. This technique creates an eﬀect. I believe both the subject ma=ers create a mysterious mood as the padlocks are bol;ng the door, and therefore the viewer may be curious or suspicious about what’s behind the door. The colours are harmonious as they mix well together and are a selec;on of muted colours; black, white and greys. They are also subtle as they don’t appear domina;ng and are not bright colours.
I have captured a windmill in my photograph, alongside the scenery which is basically the trees, bushes and ﬂowers. I’m please with this piece of photography as it is in focus and also shows the wide range of colours, and the subject maHer (the windmill) is in the centre of the photograph. I believe this photography gives oﬀ a sense of tranquillity and also makes the viewer feel calm as it contains colours that are oNen associated with peace and happiness and have connota.on of these moods and emo.ons. The types of colours in my photograph are dominant and I believe they really stand out.
This photograph shows a natural form as it is a plant, and plants are oNen associated with nature. I’m happy with this photograph as the colours stand out well and some of the subject maHers are not in focus purposely which is otherwise known as depth of ﬁeld (large aperture), In addi.on to this, the viewer would be able to imagine the texture as the edges of the leaf look sharp. I believe the mood of this photograph is quite calm however it contains colours that have connota.ons of diﬀerent emo.ons: green conveys a sense of jealousy or envy and red symbolises either love or danger. Also, the colours are dominant as they stand out.
Induc;on Photos: This par.cular photo contains several diﬀerent subject maHers however in my opinion the main one would be the blimp, the other subjects maHers are; a group of birds, trees and also a brick wall. I am happy with this photograph as it is a well .med and was taken at the point where the blimp was amongst the birds. I also believe the viewpoint is good as all of the subjects can be easily seen. This image conveys a calm and tranquil mood as the sky is a light shade of blue and blue is oNen associated with tranquillity and peace. The birds also support and reinforce the idea of this photograph being peaceful. The colours in this photograph are subtle as the majority of these colours are quite soN and light.
Induc;on Photos: In this photograph, I have captured two subject maHers; a man made structure and of course a building I am happy with my photograph as it contains a range of diﬀerent colours and I believe it captures the viewers eye as the structure is the main focus, however the building is a good addi.on amongst the background. Also this photograph has been cropped from the boHom to cut out other objects that were not needed. I think this photograph conveys both peaceful and calm images as the colours blue and white give oﬀ this. I think the colours in this photography are subtle as they’re quite light colours and are not harsh or domina.ng.
Induc;on Photos: A male doing a backﬂip is what I have captured in this photograph, and this is shown at some point in the mo.on. I am happy with my photograph however I believe I could have taken it from a diﬀerent viewpoint and possibly created a background containing more colours and more objects. And therefore it may have stood out more, also his feet are not par.cularly in focus however this shows that he is moving and in mo.on. I believe the mood of this photo is energe.c and promotes a sense of energy as the subject maHer is doing a backﬂip, and this is something that requires a large amount of energy or adrenaline. I think the colours in this photograph are dominant as the colours are quite dark and tend to stand out in the photo.
Texture: I have captured a close up of a wooden door, which clearly shows the texture of the wood, and appears rough and jagged. However the door seems out of focus and is the main viewpoint although as the scenery behind the door is in focus, it also captures the viewers eye and stands out. I believe this photograph is mysterious the viewer can’t completely see what’s behind the door and therefore it adds an element of mystery as you can only see a frac;on of what’s behind the door. The colours in this photo are subtle and the majority of them are muted; greys and browns. Green Leaf Texture Gabriel Robledo 2nd September 2008
I have captured an arm of the windmill dominated by birds, I am happy with my photograph as it shows windmill arm clearly, which of course is the main subject ma=er and one that will get the viewers a=en;on. This photograph also captures a diagonal line well and therefore I am happy with it, this par;cular type of line tends to be visually dynamic and oNen suggests movement and/or excitement. And as my subject is a windmill arm, it adds to the sense of movement as they are more than oNen turning and in mo;on. The birds also are similar to the windmill and add to the sense of movement as they are normally in mo;on. I believe my photograph gives oﬀ a calm mood, this is because it contains the soothing colours of blue and white which both have connota;ons of peace and tranquility. Similar to before, I have again edited my photograph in colour, decreased the brightness and increased the contrast, in order to make the colours stand out more and a=ract the viewer. And to also draw them to main subject ma=er which is the windmill arm.

In my photograph, I have captured a door and some scenery; bushes, trees and leafs, each of them are rich in diﬀerent colours. The main subject ma=er is the door, and it appears as if someone was looking up at the door, and the viewpoint symbolises this and adds a sense of mystery to the photograph. The viewer can also get a sense of the texture which would indeed be rough and jagged as it is wood. I think the mood of my photograph is mysterious as it makes the viewer curious and wonder about what is behind the door. However, the green colours of the scenery make the photo seem calm and tranquil. The edited photograph contains colours that are dominant as I adjusted and improved the contrast in the photo to make the colours stand out amongst the others.

Shape In my photograph, I have captured a bruised pear amongst grass and leaves on the ground. I am sa;sﬁed with this par;cular photograph because the my main subject (pear) forms a circle shape, and therefore evidently shows how shapes can exist within objects. In addi;on to this, the close-‐up of the pear shows the texture of the pear, and although it appears to be smooth, it is also bruised. The viewpoint of this photograph seems as if someone is standing above the pear and because the pear is placed on the ground, it could possibly give the impression that the pear has fallen out of the tree. I would describe my photograph as both peaceful and calm, and I believe the bright colours convey these moods and the par;cular type of green featured in my image, is considered to be the tradi;onal colour of peace. My photograph contains dominant colours and ones that stand out as they are bright and eye catching. However the colours are also harmonious as the diﬀerent types of greens (bright, dark and regular) go well successfully and they also blend in with the browns.

Nega.ve Space I have captured a picture of the sky amongst the scenery; trees, bushes and lampposts. These are the three focus points, and the sun really catches the viewers eye as it is bright and stands out. I am quite happy with my photograph as it contains a large amount of nega;ve space and various bright colours, I think my photograph conveys the moods of calm and tranquility. In addi;on to this, my photograph contains dominant colours that stand out because I have decreased the brightness in my photo, and increased the contrast to make the main subject ma=er brighter and to make it stand out, this is also used to draw the viewer into the centre of the photograph.
