This photograph is a composition by Lise Safati, from what she describes as immaculate. This photograph follows what photographers call the rules of composition, she uses simplicity to emphasise the photograph to give it this dramatic edge. This photo also follows the rule of thirds, as the shot has been taken slightly to the left. This piece works beautifully because it is clear of what the focal point is, and there is nothing to distract the eye from the subject.
Safati adapted many different styles to create the pieces that she desired, she categorise them into the genre that the photograph showed. Immaculate is one of her styles of her photography that I think is effective without the piece being clobbered with lots of colour and many different subject. Immaculate is capturing something simple but looks making it look extravagant. This photograph is from her collection called ‘ the new life’ this photograph works well because its capturing something simple but has that gritty edge. There are many subjects in this piece, but works because it builds up the image to make it a good shot.
Rankin style of photography is based usually on portraits and uses a exaggerated and eccentric style to create his images. His compositions are usually of celebrities, for example Lindsay Lohan and Nelly furtado. The photograph of the black and white print of this woman is very striking because of how the balance of the light creates this effective layer of the piece. The photograph has been taken in the rule of thirds instead of a clean centred subject, this gives that photo emphasis and has also a very clear focal point.
Mario Testino, a photographer who has work has been described as ‘ luxury realism’ he believes that the magic in his work is to make people look there very best. Testino mainly photographs celebrities, and his work would appear in some well known magazines such as Vogue and ELLE. This photograph is a stunning composition and shows that the photographer thought about what angle to take the shot, the lighting that they wanted used. This shot has been taken in the rule of thirds, which this technique is always a positive one, it has been used effectively in this piece that allows it to look impressive. The balance between the light and darker shades compliments this piece beautifully, and im my opinion makes it makes the photograph look more vibrant and bold.
