Buildings and Boats


Little Things

I decided to photograph little objects from around my house that I thought were different and eye catching. I also decided to use the sun in three different ways. The first image is half shade half sun, the second image is full shade and lastly the third image is taken in full sunlight. IMG_3929 half sun half shadeIMG_4016 shadeIMG1-SP 1200 FSTOP-8.0


GI created six pictures, three being sad and the other uplifting, through the use of colour.
For my sad picture I chose to place the model against a blue wall, wearing a blue item being her t-shirt. The reason behind this is due to the effect that the blue tones influence on the mood of the photo. I decided to choose the colour blue, as blue is a very gloomy, poignant and miserable colour as depicted in images 1 to 6. In depth, the colour of the blue t-shirt the model is wearing creates a sad mood like seen in image 1 to 3 where each model is wearing either blue fabric or clothes. Adding blue fabric and background makes the mood of the photograph to be sadder. For my uplifting picture I chose to place my model against a yellow background, wearing a yellow t-shirt. The reason behind this is due to the happy and uplifting effect and mood that the colour yellow brings to a scene like seen in images 6 to 9. Yellow projects lots of light which creates an uplifting effect to the image whereas blue entails a darker effect on the image creating a gloomy and miserable tone. The colour yellow is a warmer tone which essentially makes one feel warmer and happier whereas the colour blue is a cooler tone which leaves a cool, empty and depressing mood which is why I chose the colour blue for my sad photograph and the colour yellow for my uplifting photograph.
