Grand Landscape Assignment

Exploring Landscapes Project



Exploring Landscapes Project

Part 1:



Questions: Favorite Image: #1
1. Yes, I did use the rule of thirds and I did so to emphasize the different landscape around the water, specifically the different trees. 
2. I use principles of design such as scale, texture, and color by increasing the saturation of the image to emphasize different color and I framed the image in  way that it displayed the scale of the waterfall and showed the varied texture of the landscape. 
3. The image was taken at midday, so the lighting was harsher than the way I would have wanted it. It would have looked better early in the morning or towards sunset.
4. I used the foreground, background relationship by framing the image in a way that trees and vegetation was in the foreground and the beautiful cove was in the background.

Questions:

Cinemagraph






Cinemagraph


Reflection:
1. What was your team’s overall concept and did you succeed in crafting the cinemagraph the way you intended?

My team's overall concept was to get a cinema graph that was simple and had a are-free vibe to it. We used outdoor, natural lighting to achieve a sort of lightness to the image and did it around trees and vegetation to make it appear more natural.
2. Were you more involved in the creative, photographic, or technical portion of the process, what did you do?
I was more involved in the creative portion of the process as I came up wit the idea and how and where to shoot the cinemagraph.
​ 3. What would you have done differently when creating your cinema graph?
In creating the cinema graph, I wish we shot near a prettier background. 
4. What would have made this project easier to understand or create?
I think it the photoshop tutorial on how to create the cinema graph in photoshop was easier to follow and understand, the overall process would be a lot of simple.
5. How was the team dynamic - great, good, fair, poor, and did everyone share the work?
The team dynamic was great- Lauren and I work really well together and we shared the work.
