Christine's Photos

light #1

Without light the way you can see the branches and trees would not be possible sense it is a reflection in the water. I like this photo because from first glance you don’t know what you’re looking at but eventually the light leads you to the ripples in the water showing you that what you’re actually seeing is a reflection.

Fieldtrip

This photo has an interesting look because it was taken through a glass window, giving it reflections and different shades than it would’ve had if it was just take inside. It gives off an leery and creepy mood because the statue’s hands represent peace or a sign of religion while the face is smiling out of character. It almost gives the statue a personality.

I had found this chair in the middle of the woods in my backyard. When the picture was taken you could not tell how old and dirty the chair was, so I thought I would edit this to antique to show how I wanted the chair perceived. When I took this picture the light was coming through trees, but I had moved the chair to have it mainly focused on subject instead of it’s background, which is why they have such contrast.

The way the viewer’s eyes move straight to the door that is in the distance gives this photo a mysterious feel and probably makes the viewer wonder where the door is leading to. The overlay that I chose adds to the mysterious and thought provoking mood with darkening the walls, but highlighting the subject.

From just her eyes it looks like something has upset her and she has been crying. With the background looking dirty and her clothing somewhat formal, alone with her hair done, the background and her appearance is a clear contradiction which makes me infer that she is not where she is supposed to be. The look on her face could be the fear she has because of her being so out of place.

To go from the original photo to the vintage version I had to change the color and tweak the highlights and shadows. When the color/shades of the photo were done I used an image of scratched glass and put it as a transparent layer on top of the sepia photo to add a old or scratched up, vintage effect. I liked the vintage photo much more compared to the oringinal because I think it made her features more flattering and the old look makes the photo more interesting.

Between the B&W photo and the regular photo I think the black and white is more flattering. Instead of it having a distracting orange-ish tint like the one in color, the black and white helps the view focus on the subject. Also, I think the lights and darks are more showed off with the contrast of the black and white while the one in color nothing really sticks out.
