milo rathbun – composition The goal of this photo was to capture the traffic light as my rule of odds subject. A traffic light has 3 lights so it’s the perfect amount to really draw your attention. I decided to shoot at night because of the luminosity of the lights which also gave the lens a little bit of flare around the hotspots. Overall the blurriness and contrast between light and dark really draw your eyes toward the light and … Continue reading “Photo Blog #38: Rule of Odds”
Photo Blog #35: Rule of Thirds Emotion
milo rathbun – composition In this photo, I wanted to use the rule of thirds to make the viewer feel loneliness. I arranged the photo so that two similar cars would be on the left side of the rule. These two cars are both red, similarly shaped, and model Ferraris. To contrast these cars I chose a black Lamborghini to go on the rightmost box of the rule. Since there is both an odd number of cars and a contrast … Continue reading “Photo Blog #35: Rule of Thirds Emotion”
Photo Blog #32: Fill The Frame
Milo Rathbun – composition In this photo, I was tasked with filling the frame with a subject of a single color. Mine was grey. In order to do this I chose a location with nothing directly in the background So I could really have a depth-of-field effect. Doing this made causes the viewer to focus in on the shoes and pants (both of which are grey). Additionally, the greenish tints on the lights in the hall make a nice contrast … Continue reading “Photo Blog #32: Fill The Frame”
Photo Blog #29: Facial Symmetry
milo rathbun – composition In this photo, I wanted to experiment with facial symmetry on a portrait. I took this photo of my friend Tai and thought it would be perfect for this experiment. On the left side, I edited the right side of his face to be symmetrical which has a cool effect as you can see. Similarly, on the right side, I repeated the process with the opposite side of his face.
Photo Blog #26: Geometry
milo Rathbun – composition In this photo, I was tasked with using geometry. I originally thought of going and photographing things such as cool shapes or buildings but I then came up with the idea to incorporate them into a picture I already had. To do this I edited a photo and created a sort of folded paper look. The folds all look like little squares and it adds a new level of immersion into this photo.
Photo Blog #23: Leading Lines
Milo Rathbun – Composition In this shot, I used the leading lines of the ledge to point toward the subject which is the food. I tried to sort of make it a far-away perspective by shooting at a low angle and focusing on all of the negative space in front of the food.
Photo Blog #20: Rule of Odds
Milo Rathbun – composition In this photoblog, I was challenged to use the rule of odds in order to draw attention to certain objects or subjects. In this photo, I chose the deer to be my subject, and conveniently there was an odd number so they largely drew the attention in this photo.
Photo Blog #17: Negative Space
milo rathbun – composition In this photo, I chose to use a really flat landscape with a sort of hilly background. In this photo, there is a lot of negative space but there are a few subjects that you are really drawn to as a result. The contrasting color of the cars really makes them pop out and behind is a really architecturally cool-looking building.
Photo Blog #14: Center Frame Portrait
Milo Rathbun – composition In this photoblog, I chose a subject or character (Tai) and tried to make him stand out while seeming lonely. I created this feeling of loneliness by having him stand on the wooden pillar and face towards a distant and far-ranging background. This really isolated him from the background and created a true feeling of loneliness.
Photo Blog #8: Leading Lines
Milo Rathbun – Composition I thought that this picture of Yhali walking on the sidewalk had a lot of leading lines pointing towards him.
