Elements of Art(For Photography)
Lines can be varied in many ways to create different properties in an image.
Lines are the most noticeable part of the image
Lines do not have to be straight
Take up the positive space in an image and can be geometric or organic.
A square, rectangle, triangle, or circle is the main focus of the image
The illusion of depth created by the way subjects are arranged, using negative space, and using perspective.
One subject or object is the centre of attention.
Everything else in the image does not take a lot of attention
One object or subject is the centre of attention, however it is placed away from the centre of the image.
Allows eyes to move across the image to find the focal point (focus)
One object/subject is up close, while another is far away
Gives the sense of distance and depth
Visible lines going into the image, meeting within the image.
Creates a tunnel effect into the image
Subjects/objects in the image disappear into the distance
Is different from Visual Perspective: No tunnel effect.
Space in Front
Moving objects/subjects move INTO the image
Can see where the subject/object is going
Creating the illusion of what it would be like to touch or provoking a specific sense of touch through an image.
Usually a close up view of the subject/object.
The texture of the subject/object is the focus, and is noticed first.
Perception of reflected light.
The color takes more attention than anything else in the image.
You see the colors first, then the subject of the image.
The lightness or darkness of a color or line
Different hues/shades of a color is the most noticeable part of the image
The image has one soft color as the main focus
Has a size, shape, and a background. Creates the illusion of three dimensionality. Many elements can be combined to make form (ie: shape, space, texture, and value/tone
Has soft shadows: Dark image with low lighting
Focus is on showing the three dimensionality of the subject/object
NOT fashion photography: fashion photography does not show shadows!
