Beauty of photography

On this topic, I will be analyzing three photography composition rules which are: rule of third, leading lines and depth of field. I will also include the photos that I have taken to further explain the above rules.

Rule of Thirds:

The rule of third is described as placing important parts of the image on a point where the horizontal and vertical lines intercept. The image above meets the criteria and that’s why I used it for this example.

Here is an example of a picture taken by me to further explain rule of third


Leading Lines:

Leading lines occurs when we have  straight, curvy or zigzag path. The image I used has a straight path and it seems like you are walking towards the moon.

Depth of Field:

Depth of field has to do with focusing the main subject of interest on your image. You want to draw your audience to a particular image and then blur the other parts. The image I used focused on the bird and where it was standing .

The beauty of art using topography


The above image is gotten from the “ website.” The design of the image was inspired by a talk given by Sister Carol M. Stephens where she teaches about the the power of hope.

TypeFace #1



The highlighted image is a script. The reason it fit into this category type is how it seem like a script that was hand printed. If closely looked it appears it has be written withh a calligraphy pen.

TyperFace #2

San Serif:

The highlighted portion is San Serif because the characters don’t have any visible thick/thin transition in the strokes. Each character has a form that is same thickness.

The element that makes the two type faces contrast is the “Structure” They both have different structure that’s what make them unique and easily differentiated.

both type faces makes it easy for us to read the message on the image. It’s important to use different type faces to make your work smooth and easy for people to read.

Be nice picture – Reverse engineer

This is a reverse engineering project. I will analyze this image by focusing on repetition, alignment, proximity, contrast and finally color. This image is gotten from and it’s used to promote self improvement “Be nice pictures


This organization helps bring beauty in the form of pictures. This is a quote from their website “LoveThisPic is a place for people to come and share inspiring pictures, quotes, DIYs, and many other types of photos.”



The different color of pink used on this image fulfills the repetition requirement. The flower naturally has pinkish purple on it’s leaf, by using same color of the flower on different part of the makes everything be unified.


Although the image has short text the important thing is the proximity used. We can see the texts are not scattered on separate  corners but are placed together on the top right corner.


An interesting quote from The non-designer’s book states “Nothing should be placed on the page arbitrarily. Every item should have a visual connection with something else on the page.” The content on the image is align correctly where the flower is placed by the left side and the text is on the top right corner.


Contrast is created in by using the right color for the background, flower and text. The flower on the image has different colors that illuminate beauty, has some light shading and little dark to bring out the uniqueness of the image.  Also the choice of using black on the text makes it easy to read. I think using other color as the text might make the reading hard and it might dull the message of the picture.


The color combination is brilliant. It makes the image clean and clear


In general the creator used good technique on this work. We can see repetition, contrast, alignment, color and proximity used properly.
