LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHYLO1 UNIT 3

LEADING LINES

This photograph was taken by landscape photographer, Adam Burton. This photograph was taken on the way to Exmoor National Park, Somerset. This photograph has prominent leading lines located in the middle third of the photograph which leads the viewers eye through the photograph. In my opinion this photograph is three dimensional because I feel like theres more to the photograph as we look into the end of the path in the photograph. I think that this photograph may have been taken in the early morning, I think this because of the skies golden color. I think that the ISO may be low because the photograph was taken in daylight. Most likely, the aperture was small while taking this photograph because there is a lot of light that needs to be taken in before the photograph is taken.

This photograph was taken by Raluca Mateescu, he/she has named this photograph Downtown Bridge. This picture has two apparent leading lines (the bridges rails) which are located in the first third of the photograph. The leading lines in this photograph lead the viewers eyes through the photograph. Also the overhead lights that are above the main focal point assist the viewers eyes through the photograph. I think that this photograph may have been taken with a high ISO as this photograph was taken at night. Most likely, the aperture is small and the shutter speed was kept at about a few seconds so that the camera can take in the right amount of light before the photograph is taken.

NIGHT TIME

This photograph was taken by Jason Hawkes, a landscape photographer. The photograph was taken at the W Hotel in Leicester Square in London, this picture was taken at 980ft. The photographer was most likely stood on a building or on a crane when taking this picture as it is so far up. I think this photograph may have been taken with a small aperture and a slow shutter speed so that it can capture all the light. I also think this is may have been taken with a high ISO as it is taken at night so the other buildings are showing. Ive also noticed that the main focus point of the photograph is the brightest object and the viewers eyes would be drawn to it, also because it is located in between the first and second third of the photograph.This photograph was taken in Trafalgar Square, London by photographer/blogger Elle-Rose. The main focal point of the photograph is the fountain which is located in the middle third of the photograph. I think that the photograph may have been taken with a slow shutter speed (a couple seconds) as the water coming from the fountain has a misty look to it which may have came from the shutter speed being left on for a long time. I think that the aperture may have been small because of it having to take in so much light (from the fountain and other buildings and street lights) for such long time before the photograph is taken. The ISO may have been high because this photo was clearly taken at night time.

REFLECTIONS AND SYMMETRY

This photograph was taken by photographer, Galen Rowell. The photograph was taken at John Muir Trail, High Sierra, California. This photograph is a clear representation of reflections and symmetry in landscape photography as the mountains and warm pink and purple skies are reflected amongst the water and grass below it. As you can see, the horizon line is also the symmetry line of the photograph which would be the edge of where the grass and water starts. This photograph may have been taken in the early morning as it seems that the sun maybe coming up and the water is still. I think that this photograph may have been taken with a small aperture and a slow shutter speed because of the some blades of grass near the bottom of the photograph are slightly blurred. The ISO may have been low because of the time of day (daylight).This photograph was taken by photographer, Adam Burton. The location of this photograph is Alnwick Castle in Northumberland. The main reflections in the photograph are of the castle, trees and other buildings adjacent to the castle as well as the reflections of grass in the water. I think that the photographer may have changed the white balance to get the blue filter effect on the photograph. In my opinion, I think that this photo may have been taken in the early morning as frost is present on the grass and the castle appears to have a golden color to it which may be a reflection of the sun. As the photograph was taken in sunlight, the ISO maybe quite low so there isnt a grainy effect on the photograph.

URBAN AND RURAL

This photograph was taken by Andreas Gursky. The title of this photograph is The Rhine II. The simplicity of this photograph is very apparent. This photograph is split up into sections of straight lines of grass, water, path and sky. This photograph may have been taken in the day so the ISO will be quite low to avoid a grainy effect on the photograph. The green lines of grass leads the viewers eye towards the waves of water near the middle of the photograph. I would say that this photograph comes under the category of rural landscape photography because there is simply water and grass in the photograph rather than city buildings, cars, etc. I think that this photograph may have been taken with a fast shutter speed because the ripples in the water are very apparent and that the aperture maybe quite small as there is a lot of light in this photograph.This photograph was taken by architecture photographer, Matthias Heiderich. This photograph was taken in Berlin, Germany. I would say that this photograph was taken at an angle and handheld because of how the composition of the photograph. I think that this photograph was taken in sunlight because of the warm tones of colors as well as the lack of clouds in the sky. In my opinion, the line of the roof leads the viewers eye towards the object on the corner. I think that this photograph may have been taken with a low ISO because of the fact that it was taken in daylight. This photograph was taken with a fast shutter speed and small aperture. I think this is because of the fact that this photo may have been taken handheld and to avoid blur.

LONG EXPOSURE

This photograph was taken by Mike Curry. I think that this photograph may have been taken handheld because of the way that the shake has been produced in the photo. The photo was probably taken from a high vantage point from a near by building. In my opinion, this photograph has been taken with a low shutter speed. I think this because of the level of shake, also I think that this may have been taken with a small aperture. What makes this photograph unique because of the lines of shake within the picture. I think that this photograph was taken with a high ISO because it seems as if it was taken in the evening.This photograph was taken by Japanese photographer, Shinichi Higashi. As you can see, it is clear that a long exposure time was used to take this photograph because of the lines of light which have come from cars going past. This photograph was taken from a high vantage point, probably from a bridge or a near by building. I think that this photograph may have been taken with a high ISO as it seems that this photograph has been taken at night. The lines of light are also leading lines which lead the viewers eyes to each corner of the photo. I think that this photo may have been made into a symmetric photograph using editing software such as Photoshop. More than likely I think that this photo may have been taken with a small aperture and with a slow shutter speed so that the camera can pick up all of the light from the cars which makes the lines.
