One of my favorite and best pictures of the Point of View project was my photo titled “Sunglass Color Wheel”. I gave it that name because the sunglasses had just about every color on them and I thought it was very unique. I picked my sunglass picture because of the intricate designs and the way the colors blended together. The photo was taken in the driveway of my home. At first I wanted to take the photo inside, but the light outside was perfect for what I wanted. I was able to capture the darkness from the sunglasses while still being able to see the light from the outside and the texture of the pavement really brought out the quality of the photo.
My photo was captured using the Rule of Thirds because the main goal was for the darkness of the glasses to be the subject and it was off-centered to the left. Texture showed up as well in my photo. I wanted to create more composition by using the pavement of the driveway to show the gravel on the ground. While shooting this photo I had my camera set to Macro Mode because I wanted to show the design of the sunglasses and keep the houses, cars and trees in the background. I think that the aesthetics of the photo really brought out the physical features and quality of the photo.
This was my favorite picture because I followed my compositional rules and made a great picture. I liked the color scheme and the designs on the sunglasses itself. I also liked that the back ground was blurred out to give the main focus to the sunglasses. The pavement really brought out the texture in the photo and the darkness from the sunglasses looked great as well. I’m happy that the picture turned out the way it did because I put a lot of effort into getting that perfect shot.
