Framing is composing a picture. The light could hit the pictures in a certain angle .

Shape the quality of a distinct object or body in having an externalsurface or outline of specific form or figure.

Line something resembling a traced line, as a band of color, aseam, or a furrow .

Pattern a distinctive style, model, or form.

Lighting using a flash to burst into or as if into flame

Texture a structure of interwoven fibers or other elements.

Low key high key lightning In it’s simplest terms a high key image is a bright image full of light and mostly white tones whilst a low key image is a dark with minimal lighting and rich in black tones and lots of shadow areas.


Great depth of field Depth of field can either be shallow or deep.

Shallow depth of field  . A shallow depth of field simply means that one specific area of your photo is tack sharp while other elements remain blurred.

Abstract photography can produce very dramatic images. It relies on our more primal sense of form, color, and curves than it does on detail .

Activity 3

1. What are the different types of camera angles? link

(1)low angle, high-key “bright” of plants (2)slanted, line (3)close-up, pattern (4)low-key light “dark” mid-shot (5)high-key light (6)extreme close-up nature (7)the most colorful happy subject (8)unique display of space (9)make a statement cutting the subject off partailly

7. Why should you be clear about the subject?

You should be clear about the subject because you can’t have certain angles with certain pictures.

8. Why do you compose the entire frame, not just the subject?

While concentrating on the subject of the photo, it’s easy to overlook other parts of the composition. Before you hit the shutter button, take note of everything in the photo  not just the subject.

9. Why use different camera angles?

The different camera angles are when the subject is a person, different angles can have a strong influence on how they are perceived

10. Why should you strive for balance?

You strive for balance because poor balance is not usually good, for example, a photo with too much light and no contrast.
