We’re proud of the students in our after-school Photography Club! Here is just some of their work — examples of some of the photography elements, techniques, and skills we’ve been studying. Click on an image to see the full frame.
Leading Lines: “… a path for a viewer to follow.”
Texture: “Sometimes, textures themselves may be the subject of your photo, like patterns in the sand or waves of water. More often, though, textures are individual elements of a larger photo – either giving your subject some dimension or filling in the spaces between subjects.”
Bokeh: “…the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image.”
Shape / Filling the Frame: “… great photographs are those where the photographer has used shape in a unique or interesting way.”
Composition / The Rule of Thirds: Break your photograph into thirds, both horizontally and vertically. “Placing points of interest in the intersections or along [these imaginary] lines creates a more balanced composition.”
Light and Shadow: Including the sun’s gleam in an eye!
Perspective: Change your perspective by using an angle that is not eye-level (or tripod-level)!
