Closed Form : is when the entire object is in view.
I think this photo is a good example of close form because it shows the entire kitten and the board its on.
~ Open Form ~
Open form : is when the photographer zooms in so that the part of the object is off the page.
I think this photo is a good example of open form because it doesn’t show the whole shoe and the colors are unique.
~ Scale ~
Scale : is when the objects get smaller as the move back into space. Closer objects overlap objects in the background.
I think this photo is a good example for scale because it shows the object being overlapping in space.
~ Linear Perspective ~
Linear Perspective : is when the lines recede to a perspective point on the horizon line.
I think this photo is a good example of linear perspective because the trees recede and fade in a horizon.
~ Atmospheric Perspective ~
Atmospheric Perspective : is when objects in the background have cool colors and are hazy and Objects in the foreground have warm colors, more contrast and sharper details.
I think this photo is a good example of atmospheric perspective because the grass and her hair are warm and sharp while the background is cool and misty like.
~ Lighting ~
Lighting : is when a photo show highlights to emphasize your focal point. Areas that are highlighted appear to come out at the viewer, areas that are in shadow appear to recede.
I think this photo is a good example of lighting because the lights come out to you and the black parts of the background doesn’t.
~ Texture ~
Texture : is when the texture defines the surface of an object, it can differ in the way they reflect light (shiny or dull) and in the 3 dimensionality of the surface (smooth or raised). Try side lighting to emphasize texture.
I think this photo is a good example of texture because it shows that its smooth and sort of shiny.
~ Summary ~
The Elements of Art are a commonly used group of aspects of a work of art used in teaching and analysis, in combination with the Principles of Art. These include close form, open form, scale, shape, color, texture, value, linear perspective, atmospheric perspective, and lighting. The principles of Art includes such thing as Contrast, Balance, Rhythm, Movement, Pattern, Unity, and Emphasis. In all, photography is all about what it shows you and how you feel towards it. These elements and principles are the things that pops out to you in a photo. These photographs that I chose, popped out to me with their great details . They show great contrast and an appropriate amount of hue. They had show shades and shadows of lights and darks. They weren’t too sharp nor soften. They also had great volume and value. And with this, they showed perfect examples of such elements.
