Project

Perspective, rule of thirds

Project Description

What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? Homework instructions were to use perspective and the rule of thirds to draw in the viewer. I wanted to show the focus and drive of the cattle dog breed and to reveal the unflappable intrepid curiosity of the cat. What are you most proud of? The beasties were very tolerant of the camera in their faces and I feel as if I got some interesting angles to showcase both animals. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take TONS of photos, get on their level, keep them interested and engaged.

What you will need

  • Camera (Canon Rebel) and my beasties.

The photo of the ball is awesome! What great action - really tells a story. I also love the stair railings in the background of the other dog picture.
IrishPogue answered:
Thanks for your enthusiastic comments! The beasties and I had fun all afternoon with the photoshoot :)
Trish Wheeler asked:
Wowzer! These photos are great- I love them all. The action in the ball photo and the slinking up the stairs one are my personal favorites.... the closeups are great too though- it's hard to have a favorite LOL :-)

I like the kitty in the photo where she's off to one side. It's like she's peeking into the photo. Super cute!
IrishPogue answered:
Yes, he's a very bold cat. Thanks, JuleeQue :)
