Project Description

A personal study of composition - one scene, three photographs

Go on a mini exploration in your city and take photos of whatever appeals to you; be it a historic building, favorite coffee shop or city skyline Be sure to apply principles learned in class, but also feel free to deviate from them remember this class is about finding your own style! Then, upload a set of three photographs from the same scene, composed in different ways. This assignment will show you how the feeling and impact of a photograph can change drastically based on how you decide to compose it.

Deliverable: Upload a set of three photos from the same scene - write a line or two about what you were trying to capture and which you’d use as the final image.
