ART 3470: Digital Photography I
Digital Print; 8 1/2 x 11

This picture was for a depth of focus assignment, this particular picture focusing on shallow depth of focus. From the angle this was shot at, I was trying to get at the lily pads and the water having and endless feel which was assisted by the light haze on the water at the time.

  1. I think this photo could benefit from a square cropping — that would help make the lily pads look endless and compositionally give a better color balance as the white in the far right corner doesn’t really have a place. Furthermore ask yourself, “Why am I shooting this at this angle?” I see a lot of people use crooked frames and things of the sort and typically it just doesn’t bring a lot to the image. In this image the rail really just looks like a big wooden hunk and could stand to br brought into a more universal context.

  2. I like contrast of the green of the lily pads against the red/orange wood. However, I don’t know if the white in the corner helps the composition at all, so perhaps that could be either cropped or edited out. It certainly does look endless, but I also agree with the above commenter in that I’m unsure if the odd angle helps or detracts from the photo.
