Blog Post #2: Understanding Elements

Line: In this photo, the lines are a fence. They conceal a bigger picture behind it: the Bell Tower, but also drawn focus in and out.

                        Shape/Form: 


This picture is of soil and rocks. The depth and form of the rocks can be seen, instead of them just looking flat, they almost look grab-able.  

Space: 

This photo was taken in the Stark Gallery and represents positive and negative space. There is a lot of negative space because the chair is the only object in the vast room giving it an open feeling. 

 

Value: This photo represents value. The contrast between light and dark can be seen as the shadow hits the covered staircase. The shadows make the beige building pop.

 

Texture: 

This photo of a dog’s fur represents texture. Just by looking at it we can imagine that it feels soft and furry because of the sharpness of the texture. 

Color: 

The final photo of a pink flower represents color. The background colors are dull and monotonous, but the pink brings vibrancy and life to the picture, especially next to the dead one.
