Photo eye critique

  1. 1. Looking into a PhotographValue, Clarity, Composition, Presentation By, NikoMonfalcone
  2. 2. Value Depends on the range of contrast More contrast, more impact No grey, less interest Establish “good” and “bad” greys Exposure most common problem Longer the film’s in the developer, the more contrast May have accidental exposure- example: opening the camera in a lighted area by accident May have improper use of chemicals Developing: like a fine art, caution is EVERYTHING
  3. 3. GoodValue Example  In the first photo, the photographer used the contrast of light and dark to make great value
  4. 4. Clarity Focus is key Focus sharp or soft Matters a little on photographer’s style Your choice of what’s in focus Connection: focus depends somewhat on exposure and value. Also depends on shutter speed Depth of Field: range of difference After focusing, no movement front/backwards (stillness means everything) Something always in focus
  5. 5. Example ofBad Clarity As you can see, the clarity of this photo is wrong in many different ways. Its focus is very flat. The exposure is way overdone, and its very hard to see what’s in focus
  6. 6. Presentation How final photo is produced Shows quality and hard work How clean: how many dust/scratches? Use clean tools to fix: healing brush, clone stamp, etc. Trim edges
  7. 7. Bad Presentation Example This photo contains many dust and scratches, creating bad presentation. Its like looking through a dirty window.
  8. 8. Composition Has to do with style Find point of interest Crop to center different objects or remove objects from photo Two ways of balance: dynamic or static Static: balance stays put, point of interest usually centered Dynamic: point of interest away from the center, shows movement Lines and curves have large impact Look closely to see lines and curves Line can pull/point, drawing users eyes towards it
  9. 9. Good Composition Example Lastly, instead of having a head on shot of the car, this photographer cropped out part of it to give it the effect of it shooting past you on the road. Good composition of a photo can give a company a certain image and even up their profits.
