In this picture, I drew a lighthouse on a rocky, sharp piece of land out in the middle of the water. I used positioning and shapes and lines to create this image. By placing the lighthouse in the middle of the picture, I made the lighthouse the center piece, or the main attraction of the picture. Using horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines, I was able to create the sense of a strong and rigid lighthouse resting in the calm and stable vastness of water.
In this picture, I portrayed a small house right on the beach about to get demolished by a tidal wave. I used viewpoint and rule of thirds to create this image. By making the tidal wave look almost unrealistically larger than the house, I created a sense of an unstoppable, dominant force of nature. By placing the house where I did, near one of the intersections for rule of thirds, I created a stable and balanced position for the house even though it is about to get wiped out.
In this picture, I portrayed a hunter about to take a shot at an animal. I used cropping to focus in on the hunter while he is locking in on the animal. By cropping my hunter, I was able to capture the tense situation right before the hunter takes a shot at the animal.
In this picture, I portrayed a house placed upon rolling hills with trees in the background and a partly covered sky with clouds. I used rhythm and repetition to generate the calm and peacefulness of nature. By creating the image out of smooth curved lines and a repetition of the same object, I was able to create a rhythmic flow.
