Leading lines & frame within a frame
This particular class was held on 6/23/10 and the topic was using leading lines and frame within a frame to call attention to your subject or to simply add something interesting to the image. We did various exercises like this throughout the first month or two of classes to help us learn the basics of photography. These photos were taken along the Charles river, right down the street from CDIA (Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University). These were all taken with my Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens.
Leading lines – Erin
Leading lines – Gia
Frame w/in a frame – Gia
Frame w/in a frame – Aimee
These photos certainly aren’t the greatest that have ever been taken, but I thought that these were notable because I also had to make sure I was taking the photo from the right perspective with these, otherwise it wouldn’t have made any sense. I wasn’t fully squared up with the Aimee frame w/in a frame, and I could photoshop it to fix it, but that’s not the point. I learned from these photos and I thought they were part of another good milestone class. Also, I am fortunate to have awesome classmates (Erin used to be/is a model, and both Gia and Aimee could be) who are great to work with, we have grown together over the last year and it has been incredible to see how our communication when photographing each other has gotten better, a very valuable skill to have.
