  1. 1. PHOTOGRAPHY JOURNAL Tina Marie Rey
  2. 2. Walker Evans It is a powerful portrait image. Walker Evans takes everyday people and makes you wonder what they are going through and what their stories are. Technically, this picture is strong because of it being in black and white. The depth of field is shallow, as right behind him the background gets blurred. This makes him stand out as the main focal point.
  3. 3. Lewis Hine I find this picture just pulls you in. The subject matter of the little girl standing behind this dirty door is just compelling. It is framed beautifully on three sides. The girl is giving the photographer her attention and almost looks like she is smiling. I like that you can see the photographers reflection in the door and it looks like a dark shadow behind her.
  4. 4. RODNEY SMITH I think this is a great photograph because of the lines of the trees and even the woman is a line. The lines are then mimicked in the reflection in the water. She is perfectly centered both horizontally and vertically. Another powerful picture in black and white.
  5. 5. Ansel Adams I couldn’t decide between these two images, so I didn’t. I like the way he has them in black and white because it helps create a lot of drama in these pictures. Picture 1 – The contrast between the light and dark is strong. Very graphic, and you can easily see the background mountains. It makes you wonder if the wind is blow this tree or not. I think this picture has amazing form and shape. Picture 2 – Lots of repetitive shapes in this picture. He has created a rectangle, inside a rectangle that has more rectangles on that. The crosses have the same repetitive shape, and the top of the building also is full of line and repetition.
  6. 6. Andrew Prokos This is an amazing picture of the Brooklyn Bridge taken by Andrew Prokos. There is a lot of repetition with line and shape. The black and white really enhances the texture of the bricks on the bridge, the fencing that is up and even the road in the center. It is lit up with side lighting as you can see from the shadows created. There is a nice glow though low behind the bridge in the horizon.
  7. 7. Jerry Uelsmann I love this picture because it looks so alive. Jerry Uelsmann took two different pictures, and using Photoshop layered them to make it look as if the house has roots. It has a great focal point and is framed will by the sky on three sides. It has great line with the roots that repeats in the background landscape. There is a lot of repetition in the house with the windows. Great use of shape.
  8. 8. Diane Arbus I love this incredibly creepy picture. It is a great portrait with good contrast between the black and white. The lines and share are mimicked throughout this photograph. They were posed well. The photo is perfectly exposed and you can see a lot of good texture. It is hard to tell from where the light is coming.
  9. 9. Tricia McKellar This is a photograph from a new up coming photographer. She adds the frames later in Photoshop, and I like they way she artificially framed this image. The clouds offer a lot of depth to this picture. The trees almost look like a silhouette and I believe the subject is backlit. The exposure is perfect and there is a lot of great line and contrast.
  10. 10. Tricia McKellar I like the consistency of Tricia McKellar's work. Her subjects look very aged. She added a Photoshop frame around the picture. I like the contrast between the clouds and the blue sky with the black birds on a wire in the foreground. This picture makes you think about why is one bird sitting all alone, did he choose to leave the group, or do they not want him. The exposure is perfect and there is great shape and line.
  11. 11. Dylan Collard This picture has a great subject matter and makes you think of what the photographer is trying to say. It has good lighting coming from behind her and up high. It is perfectly centered and framed really well. It uses the rule of thirds as to where she is standing. And I think it is really successful that the picture is a dull grey, but she is very bright and colorful, and even her broom and wet floor sign is brightly colored, making for good contrast.
  12. 12. Annie Leibowitz I chose this picture because of the texture that the photographer was able to get using lighting and water. The light is coming from the top, but the shadows it creates would then define it as side lighting. Lance Armstrong is one of the best bicyclists in the world and to show him pure on his bike is powerful to me. You can see every muscle and he appears to be very hard.
  13. 13. Annie Leibowitz In contrast to the Lance Armstrong picture, Annie Leibowitz captured the softness of Demi Moore. Also photographed in a pure and intimate pose. I love this image not just for the photographic beauty, but because it raised an issue in 1991 that can a pregnant woman be just as beautiful as a woman who isn’t pregnant, and then is it appropriate to have her image on the cover of a national magazine. Sometimes a photograph is more than just a picture. This is one of those.
  14. 14. Simen Johan This photograph was taken in Norway by a Norwegian photographer. I wonder if it is digitally enhanced because it is such a creepy but fun image. There is great back lighting that gives some nice shadows tot the piece. There are some good lines to follow, like the tracks, the light poles and the building. The color contrast between the picture and the red tricycle is very graphic.
  15. 15. Mehmet Ozgur This is a landscape photograph that was digitally enhanced. It is a vivid panoramic photo. There is a lot of contrast between the mountains and the sky. The moon up in the horizon is a great addition to give your eye someplace to travel. There is great lines with the sillohette of the mountains.
  16. 16. Steve Mccurry This portrait was on the cover of national geographic. It is of a girl from Afghanistan taken in the early 1990’s. It has amazing color and is very vivid. The shape of her hood and the draping of it is repeated throughout the picture. Her green eyes are repeated in the background and the clothing underneath. The lighting looks like it may be coming from above her and to the right. It helps give a good shadow on her to show dimension in this photograph.
  17. 17. David Doubilet I am amazed at how clear and vivid this photograph is since it was taken underwater,. I believe he used Photoshop to enhance the colors, which helps make the contrast between the fish and the anemone stand out. It has great line with the stripes on the fish standing out, and the repetitive circle shapes on the sea anemone.
  18. 18. I love the intense color of these macro images. The shape of the creatures are very unique. He has gotten a very clear image of the details of the frog and the worm. There is lighting from all angles because the shadows are hard to see. He thought carefully about having the background compliment his subject instead of distracting from it. Igor Siwanowicz
