I chose this theme because I wanted to explore different textures and patterns around the school.
Composition Photo#1 I chose to get the sun in the picture to show the reflection of it on the scoreboard. It gives it much detail and focuses not only on the scoreboard, but also on the sun. The sun is able to make the picture represent so much more, rather than just taking a picture of the scoreboard by itself. The photo is able to show the different lighting, which makes the picture look wonderful.
Composition Photo#2 I chose to zoom in on the trophy to show the glare of the girl’s basketball locker room. It shows how the girls had to work together and train hard in order to succeed and achieve their goal, which was to get the trophy that is in the photo. I chose to also get the basketball net in the photo, to show that the girl’s dedication truly does pay off.
Composition Photo#3 I chose to zoom into the flowers and their leaves to show the detail and the different colors that they contain. It focuses on the true beauty of nature. This photograph tends to put on a stronger emphasis on the value of the flower. Daily, we pass by flowers and leaves and don’t see the true beauty of it, but this photo is able to show the true beauty that they contain.
Composition Photo#4 I chose to zoom in on the rocks to show the different perspectives of how life is seen differently through people’s eyes. The picture focuses in the center part, which is the rocks, to show the beauty that they contain, even though they are just ordinary rocks. As I focused in on the rocks, I could also see the different patterns and colors that a rock contains. We usually don’t look at rocks, but in this photo, you get a better perspective of how a rock truly looks when you really focus on it. I blurred out the trees in the background to mainly focus on the beauty of the rocks.
