  1. 1. Shape:The 3rd Element <br />ECC<br />Digital Photography Unit<br />By Ms Gregory<br />
  2. 2. Learning Intentions:<br />To learn about the elements of design, specifically, shape. <br />To see and capture the elements of shape in photographs.<br />To use shape to create powerful images with digital photography.<br />
  3. 3. When we see things, the shape tells us what it is.<br />
  4. 4. Shape can show the relationship between objects in a photograph…<br />
  5. 5. …or how those objects interact with each other.<br />
  6. 6. Negative space, the space that is not the subject, is also very important.<br />
  7. 7. Repeating shape is often used to create visual harmony in a photograph. <br />
  8. 8. Creative use of any regular shape (circles, squares, rectangles, etc.) can enhance a photograph.<br />
  9. 9. Your assignment: <br />Take several photos of shape.<br />Use the lesson ideas to help you ‘see’.<br />Also look for line, texture, remember rule of thirds and use other tips from previous lessons to create a strong photo overall.<br />Please behave appropriately if outside of the classroom.<br />We’ll upload and share out after 30 minutes!<br />
