Elements of Art & Principles of Design Photography
For the 2011-2012 school year, our challenge for Art Club was to capture all thirteen Elements of Art & Principles of Design. This project is the same as the Holga project for my IB Junior art class, except these images are taken digitally, rather than with a holga camera.
Along with shooting the Elements of Art & Principles of Design, students in Art Club were required to create a compositional piece in Adobe Photoshop (CS5) that is representational of themselves. In my compositional piece, I chose to use an abstract type image of myself, along with three other images that overlay the main image. The overlaying images include: an image of hand painted quotes on my bedroom wall, an image of rain drops, and an image of my handwriting. To create the composition, I over-layed the images, played with contrast and value, and changed the opacity/transparency of the images. Through my image, I am trying to portray the concept of me becoming stronger from my past experiences. Through all of the pain and tears, I have become the person who I am today.
