Jessica Estes The Elements and Principals of Art in Photography Elements-The blocks of of art: line, shape and form, space, color, value, and texture. Elements Line- An element of art that refers to a point moving in space. Line Shape- An element of art that occurs when a line meets itself. Shape Space- An element of art that indicates area in an image and can be positive or negative. Space Color- An element of art with three properties: hue, value, and intensity. Color Value- An element of Art that refers to the light or dark tones of colors or to the neutral tones in an image. Value Texture Texture- An element of art that refers to the tactile (touchable) or visual quality of a surface in an image that can be emphasized by dramatic lighting. Principals Principals- The guidelines, including unity, variety, balance, contrast, emphasis, pattern, proportion, and movement and rhythm, that are used to arrange the elements of art in a composition. Unity Unity- A principal of design in which all the individual parts of a composition come together and support each other to create one cohesive composition. Variety Balance Contrast Emphasis Pattern Proportion Movement Rhythm Variety- A principal of design that occurs when different qualities of the elements of art (light and dark values, geometric and organic shapes, etc.) and principals of design (emphasis and pattern, etc.) are included in one image. Balance- A principal of design that refers to how elements are arranged to achieve stability. Contrast- The range of values, from light to dark, of the colors or shades of gray in an image. Emphasis- A principal of design that uses value, shape, size, position, or color to add importance to an object or subject in an image. Pattern- A principal of design that is achieved by the repetition of any elements of art in a composition. Proportion- A principal of design that refers to the relationship between the sizes of objects or components in an image. Movement- A principal of design that refers to real or implied motion in an image, or how the viewer's eye travels through the composition of an image. Rhythm- A principal of design created by the organized repetition, alteration, or progression of art elements like color, value, shape, and line. Form Form- A three-dimensional shape. Explanation I choose this picture because from where it was taken you can easily see the blue sky in the background is the negative space,and the bird is the positive space.I choose this picture because I choose this picture because I choose this picture because Explanation I choose this picture because the angle it was taken from you can very easily tell that the headlight and wheel are the positive space, and the doors and windows are the negative space. Explanation I choose this picture because the background looked flat, and the girl stood out like she was 3-D. I choose this picture because you can see the many shades of gray in this image; light gray, dark gray, and a few shades of gray in between. Explanation I choose this picture because of the range in values, from light to dark, in blue. Explanation I choose this because it looks like a 3-D shape; a reason it looks like this is because of the point of view the image is captured from. The branch in the front is closer because it's lower than the tree. Explanation I choose this picture because you can see lines in the stairs/railings and window panes; the lines make the picture very cool because they lead the viewers eye around the picture. Some of the lines are zig-zags. Explanation I choose this picture because of the lines in the street and the lines from the telephone poles/wires. The lines lead the viewers eyes forward. Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation Explanation I choose this picture because the chain and wire leads to the chandelier. I choose this picture because the stem leads to the flower. The flower blooms after the stem has grown. I choose this picture because it uses hue, the color black. Also, it uses value by using different shades of black, light and dark. Last but not least, this picture uses intensity by using a very dull black color. I choose this picture because it uses hue, the color blue. Also, it uses value by using light and dark shades of blue. Last but not least, it uses intensity by using brighter colors of blue. I choose this picture because it uses light and dark tones of black. I choose this picture because it uses almost all dark tones of black except on the sun. The sun is a very light tone of black. I choose this picture because the cats fur gives off a soft, fuzzy texture. I choose this picture because the leaves give off a rough rubber, plastic texture/ look. I choose this picture because all the buildings, roads, and cars create the whole picture. It creates a whole city in just 1 picture. I choose this picture because all the bottles create 1 picture, it creates a recipe/ meal. I choose this picture because there are different tones in color, different shapes, and emphasis in the landscape. there is a pattern within the trees/ bushes. I choose this picture because there are light and dark values of yellow blue and brown. Also because it uses circles, diamonds, and squares. There is emphasis in the big blue circle/ skylight, and patterns within the repetitiveness of the shapes. I choose this picture because the elements of art are arranged in the same way because she is right against a mirror which reflects her image. I choose this picture because the bird balances on the stone, and balances evenly in the picture. I choose this picture because they used a good position to take the picture, low camera angle. I choose this picture because the color creates the sunset. I choose this picture because the lines, bricks, and hooks create a pattern. I choose this picture because the lines and shapes of the leaves create a pattern. I choose this picture because birds are usually bigger than some plants, but this bird seems so tiny compared to the small looking plant. I choose this picture because crickets usually look so tiny, but with a cropping picture it looks big. I choose this picture because you can see the movement with the bird flying in the air and the blurry background. I choose this picture because you can see the movement in the water as it rushes down the rocks. I choose this picture because there is repetition in the X's on the wall/ fence/ boxes. I choose this picture because there is repetition in the bridge and its railing; also in the railings shadow. Explanation
