For this next AC Core project, we're working with Image Compositing. This is when two photos are blended together using graphic design platforms. It could be pictures that have the same color correction or similar subjects. Rule of thirds can be used to enhance composition by giving the subject looking room. If you had a person in the right hand side of the rule of thirds and had them looking left, you have some room in the picture to see where they are looking. An example of how rule of thirds can be used incorrectly is somewhat like what I just stated. If you have a subject on the right side of the rule of thirds grid and have them looking right, it may give a feeling of being cut off because you can't see what the subject is seeing or more of the direction they're looking. I think that professional photographers think about the composition and what they want to convey to the audience. I think they picture how different angles might look and consider their best choices. I don't believe all photos should be edited. I think this because some things have their natural beauty. Yes, it can look nice to make some colors pop more, but there is also beauty in just the natural things.
I think out of the three composite images we will do, I want my third one to communicate the most, or the best. My third being the one with the book and the map, with the meaning "Reading can take you places". The image will convey my message because of the way I place the map inside the book. Reading can take you places in life, both physically and mentally. I don't know if enough people realize that. In the picture of the book, it's from kind of a low angle. I haven't taken the one of the map yet, but I have a plan. I think the viewers eye might first go to parts of the map because I'm planning to draw and color a map of the world with bright colors so that it stands out.
ACO 3.1 Analyze how elements and principles of design in various forms of media are applied to communicate to a specific audience.
ACO 3.2 Critique how the effective integration of elements and principles of design within a variety of medium impact target audiences.
ACO 3.3 Apply elements and principles of design to clarify, focus, or enhance a message or concept for a target audience.
