Shooting: To take a beautiful close up picture of a face. Editing: To edit a photo with image-adjustments to make the shadows more intense.
For these photos I wanted to use glitter to make a fun, really cool picture, and create a visually pleasing picture.
Five Step Critique
Observe: I see a 8 by 11 photograph of a young woman who has a pink and kinda yellow glitter on her body. You can see the shape of her collarbones with really defused lighting. There is a black mat around the picture that is a little bigger than the picture itself. Analyze: I think that the form of the girls collarbones create a movement throughout the piece. I think this because the collarbones really stand out and create the visual wave throughout the art. They are a little more faint so they are not as noticeable, but when looking at this photo your eyes get drawn to them because they're surrounded by shinning glitter. The color in this photograph create a emphasis in the piece. The entire photo has more of a defused more darker light source so the main thing the draws your eyes (emphasis) is the really colorful and fun colors from the glitter. The glitter is the thing that your eye gets drawn to and it's because the colors in the sparkles are really interesting compared to the rest of the photos. Interpret: The mood of this photograph is very shady diva. The darker lighting in the photo gives it a really moody tone to it but the glitter and the way she is posed make the photo very diva like and it give the photo a really cool mood. With the glitter being different colors the photo is very cool looking and really intense. I think the theme of this photo is to create a really happy but still very powerful photo that makes people think of the feminine power that this girl holds. Her pose is really powerful and really strong. Her collarbones makes the theme of this image really strong. Evaluate: Somethings that I think were done really well in this photo would be the usage of the lighting. The lighting is really defused and makes the photo look like it is very dark making the glitter stand out really strongly. Somethings that I think I could've done differently is to edit the photo a little more. I wish I could've made the glitter stand out even more, because the glitter is the main focal point. Some ways that I could've done that is to either get other glitter or to edit the colors to be brighter.
