Main idea of the story: The puppy is afraid and cornered and doesn't want to get sent to the pound.
How it all started?
I started off with the idea of having a sort of over the shoulder camera shot and using camera angle facing downwards on an object to show weakness.
My initial idea was to have a bunny trapped in a corner, but I decided to use a puppy which would read better for the shot since we don't oftened see bunnies going in to pounds.
I quickly established my perspective of the ground and walls as soon as I knew my subjects in the shot. I made sure that I had line of action to make the body language readable of the man. I tried to frame important elements using the rule of thirds which is the puppy, the rope and the man.
Next, I went on by applying values to add constrast and show that the man was bad and the dog was good.
The scene was rather empty and didn't suggest any chaos/ struggle, so I added some scraps of paper trail on the floor and had edges of the paper pointing towards the puppy..
In terms of composition, I hope that the elements and values will lead audiene straight to the puppy and fulfill the idea of my story.
Thank for reading and I hope to be able to get some feedback. Cheers. :)
