The art of photography

  2. Objectives you will learn: • About the elements of art and the principles of design. • How to use these elements and principles to make photographs. • Understanding the elements and the principles will make your photography more than just snapshots. PHOTOGRAPHY IS MORE THAN COMBINING CAMERAS, LENSES, AND FILM OR MEMORY CARDS; IT IS ABOUT USING TOOLS IN COMBINATION WITH THE ELEMENTS OF ART AND PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN TO CREATE VISUAL ART. UNDERSTANDING THE ELEMENTS AND PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN TO CREATE VISUAL ART.
  3. KEY TERMS  Balance  Composition  Cool colors  Warm colors  Hue  Pictorialism  Proportion  Rule of thirds  Saturation  Value
  4. COMPOSITION  Refers to the arrangement and relationship of different parts that make up the whole image.  In visual art terms, composition is divided into two areas, The elements of art, which are the compositions individual parts and the principles of design which are the composition’s organizing ideas.  In photography, composition is the arrangement of visual elements within the frame of the viewfinder. Edward Weston described composition as simply “the strongest way of seeing”
  5. ELEMENTS OF ART The elements of art, which are the compositions individual parts.  Line  Shape and Form  Value  Color  Space  Texture
  6. PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN The principles of design which are the composition’s organizing ideas.  Balance  Unity  Variety  Movement and Rhythm  Emphasis  Proportion  Pattern
  7. LINE Strokes that show motion and connect two points. May be vertical, horizontal or diagonal, curved, straight, zigzag, or show emotion.
  8. SHAPE/ FORM Shows an object in space, the mass or positive space it occupies. The term usually used when describing 3-d objects.
  9. Value  The lightness of darkness of an object or color.
  10. COLOR
  11. SPACE What is between objects, as know as negative space.
  12. TEXTURE  The feel, real or implied, on an object or its surface.
  13. RULE OF THIRDS The rule of thirds is one of the main “rules” in art and photographic composition and stems from the theory that the human eye naturally gravitates to intersection points that occur when an image is split into thirds. Vocabulary-Term
  14. BALANCE Is the concept of visual equilibrium and relates to our physical sense of balance. Most successful compositions achieve balance in one of two ways: symmetrically or asymmetrically.
  15. UNITY  The feeling of wholeness of the parts belonging together.
  16. VARIETY  The use of different lines, shapes, and colors in a piece of work.  Works with pattern to make the work of art seem active. The repetition of elements of design creates unity within the work of art.
  17. MOVEMENT AND RHYTHM The repetition of lines, shapes, or colors to create a feeling of movement. Is created when one or more elements of design are used repeatedly to create a feeling of organized movement. Rhythm creates a mood like music or dancing. To keep rhythm exciting and active, variety is essential.
  18. PATTERN  utilizes elements that are repeated.  The repetition of lines, shapes, tones or color can create interesting images.  There are photographers who use the pattern as the main subject of an image while others use it to enhance the overall composition and look of the photograph.  Photographers can choose to emphasize or break the pattern to capture a great image.
  19. EMPHASIS One of the most important decisions in taking a photograph is to decide what your image is about, and what its emphasis will be.
  20. PROPORTION Is the feeling of unity created when all parts (sizes, or amounts,) relate well within each other. When drawing the human figure, proportion can refer to the size of the head compared to the rest of the body.
