The composi2on of this is not central, the model is slightly to the top right corner. Kate Moss’ face is obscured by her hands covering part of it. It is also quite a sharp photo as you can see all the lines and detail on her hands and arms. However the photo is not that bright, there aren’t many whites but a lot of greys and blacks.
The subject of this photo (the models face) is not central, it’s posi2oned more towards the top of the photo. However your aGen2on is drawn to the mouth of the model as her bright white teeth contrasts really well with her deep, dark lips2ck. This is quite a serious looking photo and the black and white makes it seem very unhumorous. The dark tones are quite warming, whereas the lighter tones are quite cold. Also the contour lines of her jaw line are very prominent.
This is a very sharp photo, as the eyes are piercing which makes this become the most focused part of the photo. The only whites on the photo is in her eyes, which is another reason why the people are drawn to the eyes. The visibility of every freckle on her face makes the photo stand out even more. This photo is visually stunning and used the monochrome paleGe perfectly to get such an eye catching photo.
The main subject of this photo is very central and it’s the only part in focus, as the background and the small bit in the front are both blurred which makes your focus go to the model. The monochrome colours in this photo are not that sharp, it is quite a calm looking photo as there are a lot of similar shades of grey, and a minimal amount of bright white.
‘The Red Badge of Courage’
This photo is quite diﬀerent to the others but as in some of my photos I aim to edit the lips to s2ll be in colour. This is the main focus of the picture as your eyes are drawn to this straight away. This skin on this is also perfectly airbrushed, therefore there are no imperfec2ons which means your eyes are mainly focused on the lips, as her eyes are also quite small and there isn’t anything else going on in the picture.
The models face is slightly obscured by her hair but you can s2ll see the main features if her face. I cannot see a main focus to this photo, I feel that your eyes look at the photo as a whole. Although you can see her ouRit and hair all in detail, her face looks perfect which gives the photo a soS look, also the use of greys and black on her face make it seem more calm and not as sharp and ‘in your face’.
This photographers photo just focuses mainly on the model as the background is just plain black and there is nothing else in the photo apart from the girl. Certain parts of her skin such as her forehead and cheeks look airbrushed, whereas the lines around her mouth and the bags under her eyes are very prominent features and stand out the most in the photo. The monochrome colours aren’t as structured as some of the other ar2sts photos. Also her features aren’t what a typical model would have, which makes it more unique.
This photo really shows Marilyn Monroe’s real emo2ons, which is what I hope to achieve in my photos, show their real feelings. Also the blue hue could relate well to how she is feeling as blue is quite a cold colour and when looking at the photo it gives a sense of loneliness and loss. The composi2on of the subject maGer is central to the image emphasizing her solitude.
