Midterm Portfolio - Elizabeth Plummer

Describe

This is a photo of a boy who is tired of fighting... He has been painted onto a wall as tired. His head is down, eyes are closed, hand folded in his pockets. He is a photographer, but there is nothing in this image that suggests that except for the caption. "A camera is my weapon of choice" is what i chose to say to show something about his personality. The first thing i notice when i look at this picture is the person and their mood. Its part of the main focus of this picture.

Analyse

I chose this specific background because it was what Banksy used but also because of the detail in it. The jagged lines and the sharp cut edges. It makes it more interesting to look at. There's writing carved into the wall and its run down and dirty and it goes with the mood of the picture. Its not too bright or straight forward. There aren't any bright colors in this picture. I tried to keep the colors and the mood about the same.

Interpret

In this picture the mood affects me in a neutral way. There aren't any bright colors or anything that would stand out too much or that would really catch your eye. The holes/misshaped cement in the wall can mean something completely different than one may think. When i ask myself who I think took this picture I think of someone who's been through a lot. Who has gone though something hurtful but they are getting better because this isn't a dark picture its just the mood is sad.

Evaluate

In my eyes I don't really think that this particular picture may communicate to some people that there are other ways to control your anger or violence by channeling it into something completely different. Like finding something to focus on such as photography.

description

In this photo you can see that there are three young beautiful African girls. All three of them are representing their culture and their family back home. I love every single detail in this picture from the blurred green background to the necklaces around their necks. When I look at this picture the first thing that i see is the paint on the girls body. It reminds me of their culture and where they are from.

Analysis

I chose this specific photo to use because of its color and its offish affect. The background is a perfect color so it is still faded out but you still pay attention to it. The paint on the girls brings attention to their culture and so does the things they are wearing on their heads and body.

Interpret

These three girls dont look like any ordinary girls from Africa. They have gone through a lot and they are tired,hungry, and thirty and possibly more. you can see it in their eyes that they've been through a lot. They aren't the skinniest or the poorest but in this picture i feel like you can see their struggle

Evaluate

I find this picture very interesting. I look at the colors and the details even the small ones in this picture. Theyre all so bright and colorful they have a very happy tone/mood. The chikdrens face suggest otherwise tho> The colors of this picture and the childrens faces are both different ways

Describe

The main focus for this picture was to capture the persons personality. what she did during her free time, what she liked to watch, etc. The colors are kindov dark but they arent too dark. They dont make ou depressed or anything but they also dont make you happy. The main focus o this picture was the person personality.

Analysis

In this picture the colors almost blend together. They aren't extremely different but in a way they do go together. The camera has been shaped into her body and so has the swimming pool and harry potter. She loves all of these and she is verry passionate about every single one of them

Interpret

This picture doesnt really represent anything else other than her and what she loves and wants.

Evaluate

This subject isnt the prettiest or the most appealing, but I do still like the picture. I like the way it blends and how it shows everythign about her.

Description

The first thing that I notice when I look at this picture is the smoke in the water. I feel like it almost leads to the cracks. The colors are mainly bright colors. The mountains in the background kinda pull the audiences eyes away from the pain point of the picture.

Anayse

I chose this picture because of the texture and the effect it has on the audience. It gives off a positive affect mainly because of the colors and the way its shaped. The cracks seperate the water from the clouds.

Interpret

This can be thought of and taken in many different ways. The clouds above can be interpreted as something clouding your judgement. People who process things differently can think of how the water is them and how the clouds can be clouding your judgement.

Evaluate

This piece of art is very calming so if you are stressed or overwhelmed then you can look at this picture and just think about it. I find this picture very very appealing. This certain picture could use a little more detail. The reason why this picture is so calming is because of the lack of detail and the colors.

Description

The first thing that I notice is the flower and its colors. I liked how you have that offish affect where the main focus s the flower and everything around it is out of ficus. The colors make the mood very happy and cheerful. It is in the middle of the day or in the afternoon becuase of how bright it is outside and how the colors are affecting the rocks behind.

Analyse

In this picture you can see how obvious the offish affect is and the colors also show what season it is. Its in the middle of the day in spring. i also feel like if you follow the lilipads then it leads up to the main flower

Interpret

When I look at this picture i fell happy and calm and like i have no stress on my soldiers. The colors and the texture of the flowers are very calming and the offish affect with the rocks in the background are very soothing.

Evaluate

I find this picture very appealing and calming and i would recommend this to anyone. This picture was taken in a calm environment during a calm season. The colors and the texture and the offish affect all blend very very well.
