Photography at its worst

The Gratiot Central Market is a building in Detroit’s Eastern Market.

In the first slide you can see the buildings lay out in a framed thirds styled shot. Notice the pillar steal the show in its third and provide framing. This may be the best example I have to offer so you might want to replay it again and just watch the first slide and stop.

Slide two is a picture of the counter I work at. This photo displays lines, and Ce-Ce Johnson, maybe the most inept worker on the planet, it would be a pleasure to never meet her. The lines in the counter are on a diagonal and seem like they travel longer than one would expect. When taking photos of lines, it is important to dramatize this effect.

Third slide should display thirds because it’s the third slide, but instead it’s an example of framing. It is only a third of the way focused as it should be, but I took these photos on the fly so excuse me. Thanks to Tony Loduca for allowing the framing. Using the world around, objects and people can be highlighted by other objects and people surrounding the focal point of the picture.

The fourth picture is an simple action shot close up. The hose in the background is disgusting (I cleaned it later that day), but with the exception of that I think its mostly uncluttered. There are also lines if you look at the table too. Again this photo would be simpler if it didn’t have the hose in the background, but it’s the one I could use.

When she’s not to busy smoking cigarettes or playing her lottery, Roshunda General can display a fair amount of balance. I think this is an example of balance, let’s hope for her sake. It seems proportion is in affect here which helps create the balance.
