Photographic Composition- Assignment 2

by - Saturday, April 20, 2013

Now, I am learning about Figure-Ground (fancy that!). First, I have to identify figure and ground in pictures I have taken.

Now, I have 2 assignments (which I will try to do over the next week):

1. Create a photograph that plays on figure and ground. Photograph the work of designers and how they use positive and negative space to create a well-balanced design. Then photograph objects that interest you to study how figure and ground work together and do not compete (I am going to try using shallow depth of field to play with this).

2. Practice patience. Find a subject I want for a background and then catch things in the foreground as they pass by.
