Pano Perspective

Image
This is a photo which I took with a small water droplet added onto my phone camera lens as demonstrated in a video which I previously viewed before this assignment.  This photo did not turn out the same way that it seemed to look in the video as there was a lot more distortion to the subject of the photo than what I took.  The process that I used to take this photo was to first place the droplet of water on the camera lens with the tip of a straw, and then angle the camera so that the droplet stayed in the center of the lens and did not slip off.

Leading Lines

Image
The leading lines rule states that there should be lines leading into the center of the photo for the rule to apply.  The two photos shown above represent this rule becuase that both have two leading lines that direct the viewers attention towards the center of the photo.  These lines do not always have to lead toward the center of the photo however, they can also lead away from the center as long as they are pointing towards the subject of the photo.  The first photo shows two leading lines going into the tunnel of the stadium, and the second shows the lines leading down the road toward the large puddle at the end.

The Rule of Thirds

Image
The Rule of Thirds is more of a guideline than a rule on how to take an interesting and good looking photo in photography.  This rule is represented in photos by the picture being divided into nine equal boxes, with the point that the boxes meet at in each location being the focal point in the photo.  This is represented in my photos below by placing both the action figure and the basket off center from the lens of the camera, but the focal points still lie at the vertex of the boxes on the given sides of the frame.  I believe that this rule gave the images a better look to them than the focal point being in the dead center of the frame, and it also gives the picture a different effect than a normal photograph.

Point of View Activity

Image
I chose this object to take photographs of because it seemed to have enough of an irregular shape to give an interesting view from each point of view.  The object that I chose to take photographs of is a vase of a rooster that resides next to my kitchen table.  This vase has an irregular shape to it as it contains both a series  of ceramic feathers, a set of eyes, and a beak.  The images above are the ones I have chose to keep because they show the vase from three different and distinct angles while also displaying all the prominent features of the rooster within each picture.
