A couple of weeks, we went over lines and shapes and how each element affects a photo. This week, we will be studying “forms” and “textures”, both of which are heavily influenced by light conditions.
The form is one of the next two elements that we will be studying. Forms are a three-dimensional shape and best shown with side lighting.
This is the element that makes your audience want to reach and touch! Textures can really bring out the emotions in a photograph – from the softness of a newborn baby (soft lighting), to the roughness of an exposed brick building (harsher lighting).
This week, your assignment is to try to shoot at least 100 images of ‘forms’ and 100 images of ‘textures’. As you may have realized last week, once you hit xx amount of photos in just one element, you start seeing it everywhere.
Please try not to combine the elements equally – if at all possible, try to do one or the other. If you do combine them, be sure to highlight and emphasize ONE element. They should not have equal weight in your photo.
For this assignment (should have been for the last too, I am sorry I didn't make that clear), these images need to be SOOC – this is to help train your eye to see through your viewfinder more.
FOR SATURDAY, August 1st
Once you have shot your lines and shapes, go through them and pick your favorite one to process of each element. Then, post them on your profile and don't forget to hashtag them with #BuildingAnImage . Sometime the following week, I will try to go through the hashtag and see if anyone had any problems or anything and comment along.
Please keep in mind that the LITE version of this program does not guarantee that I will come through your images. I am also running the full-on intensive one and my time is mainly devoted to those mentorees. I will do my best to see all of the images under the hashtag.
Good luck! I am looking forward to seeing what you shoot this week. Next week's assignment will be given out either Saturday night or Sunday morning, giving you more time to play with your camera.
I was able to get some people tagged into this post, but not all… I am sorry if your name isn't below, I did try to get everyone. For some reason, Google wasn't allowing me to tag everyone.
