Appreciating people

Hi Marlya

Thanks for your class.

The one point that really stood out to me was including people in your photographs to add to the story. I use a lot of my photos as inspiration for my artwork and always thought it ruined a scene but having gone back through my photos I now have a new appreciation for people.

The Shard - A fantastic structure, I love the angles of metal and glass. I waited for some time for all people to leave but that wasn't going to happen. Having a third of the image as skyline and a line of people really adds to this and brings out the reason why so many people visit, to take in the great view over London.


Burlington Arcade - I really like the symmetry of this shopping arcade and the pop of yellow and of course the figure of the man that's slightly off centre.


Lisbon - The soft creams and yellows really contrast against the blue tones in the clothing of the people. I think the smiling lady in the corner with her sons arm wrapped round her really adds some life to this.


Bellagio - I love all things Italian! The different groups of people all add character to a bustling street which wouldn't have come across without the people.
