Optical Illusion #1:
In this photo, I see a girl standing in the middle of a circle. Looks like she is part of the circle.
Describe: What do you see?
- In this photo, I see a girl standing in the middle of a circle. Looks like she is part of the circle. My friend Meli is in the photo. The photo did not have an emotional impact on me.
- The image is focused on Meli in the center and the yellow cone around her is blurred out a little. The cropping doesn't really support the photo, but I feel like if I zoomed out more, it wouldn't have worked as well. I wish the lines of the track weren't there because I feel like it would be more believable and not show the depth as much. Main focal point is the middle of the page
- Not really trying to communicate anything to my audience except be more creative and experimental than me.
- I feel like I did a really bad job on this photo. It was very hard to capture is the way I wanted to. I had to have Ania hold the cone up and Meli stand there. I was standing behind Ania with my hands around her to get the picture. It was very difficult and wish it was better. I wish I zoomed in a little and got Meli's legs on the sides so that she actually looks like she is part of it rather than just standing behind it
Optical Illusion #2:
Describe: What do you see?
- I see a girl standing on top of a water bottle. Ania is in the photograph and my water bottle from Costco is in it. (Water bottle later got destroyed by Vanessa throwing it to me and it cracked. Never got to drink my water) The photo made me smile a little and made me happy. It is funny to see Ania look like she is balancing on top of the water bottle.
- The work is focused on Ania and her standing/balancing on the cap of the bottle. The cropping does support the photo because it makes it seem like it is all one depth with no lines making her look farther away. I do wish the image was also focused on the water bottle, but I wasn't able to get it to focus on both. It was very frustrating. The image's main focal point is in the middle of the page rather than to one side.
- I am trying to communicate that things may not always be the way they seem and that you may need to look closer. I think this is communicated well-ish. The aspects that led me to this conclusion include the fact that it is an optical illusion and that she is just farther away.
- I think the image was successful and did work well. I would change the setting of the photo and have it with a blank background with no distractions in the back. I would also like to have focused a little more on the bottle and make that part of it more believable.
