ESSENTIAL RULES OF BASIC PHOTOGRAPHY ALLISON ESCOBEDO

Rule of Third

  • Def: frame your image with the subject off the center it's moe pleasing to the eye and appears more natural than placing the subject in the center.
  • The second picture has soft focus because you the object does not stand out, and the pink flowers in the background are a distraction. The depth of field is shallow because the object is not really in focus; it works for this picture because the object was not intended to be in focus.

Leading lines

  • Def: Create a sense of movement by adding active space (the area your subject is facing) and eliminating dead space (the area behind your subject).
  • What stands out in the picture on the left is the water fountain. I do not think it is the right thing because I would have preffered the water to stand out. The exposure is perfect. I do not think it was overexposed and there are no shadows in the picture. The main subject is on focus.
