  • 1. 22-3530 - 01 PHOTO COMMUNICATIONS composition & light
  • 2. Aspect Ratio
  • 3. Avant-garde photographersgenerally were not muchinterested in landscape, a genreassociated with pastoral andsublime notions. Rodchenkocharacteristically found thenatural setting of his countryhouse accidental andunorganized: "A bush here, atree there, a gully, nettles."There seemed nothing to makea photograph from, he wrote,until he looked up to see thetrees towering above him "liketelephone poles." His rakingshot from below proposesvertigo instead of a sylvan calm,a dynamic alternative to thetraditional horizons of thelandscape view.
  • 4. Director of the Bauhaustypography and advertisingworkshop, Herbert Bayer tookup the camera about 1925,initially using photography inrelation to his design work andlater pursuing it for its own sake.In 1928, he traveled toMarseille, where hephotographed the boats dockedin the harbor from overhead,exploiting the cameras capacityto transform everyday realityinto patterned abstractions.
  • 5. White Balance
  • 6.
  • 7. Note how 5000 K produces roughly neutral light, whereas 3000 K and 9000 K produce light spectrums which shift to contain more orange and blue wavelengths, respectively. As the colortemperature rises, the color distribution becomes cooler. This may not seem intuitive, but results from the fact that shorter wavelengths contain light of higher energy.
  • 8. Auto white balance Custom white balance
